  1. Where is Australia on this?

  2. @The Masfer-i doubt it.they recognise japan as their base, not asia :P

  3. The Masfer

    And they forgot Australasia (Australia etc.)

  4. The Masfer

    Do they know japan is in Asia

  5. Editors of GTPlanet please correct the title asap. The 1.8 million record is in just 3 months, not 4 months. Don’t you see the “”as of December 2009″ in the Polyphony offcial site?

  6. This sells are kind of weird because i havent seen this game in any top 20 even, sounds like they shipped lots of units but i really doubt that the game sold this much.

    Also i think is the worst GT ever.

  7. Mustang750R

    @oneloops Its actually the other way around. GT5P, and GT5 delayed GTPSP. Jus thought you should know.

  8. For the drop between 3 and 4 there are a couple of reasons, first 3 was a leap in graphics from 2 so it sold more. Also remember 3 (at least in the US) had a PS 2 bundle… that’s how I obtained GT3 myself. Most people don’t buy every version of a game only major iterations. It’s only the hardcore like us on this site that may buy every version. I am surprised how many copies GT 5 P sold as it’s only a fraction of a whole GT game.

  9. maxpontiac gt5 prologue already outsold forza
    As you may know, Polyphony Digital publishes the sales figures of each Gran Turismo game on their website, and they just updated the numbers for Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. In the last four months (going by the numbers from May), the game has sold approximately 700,000 copies, bringing the total to nearly 4,000,000. No doubt, the Greatest Hits price drop helped drive retail sales, despite the fact that prices on eBay. Regardless, this is an impressive milestone for a “small” game – and one which will, no doubt, pour fuel on the the fire of the endless GT / Forza debate…

    I honestly believe GT PSP was a scrapped project. There are too many similarities between GT PSP and GT4. So my theory is that GT4 Mobile was really being developed and PD wasnt happy (i.e. the night tracks werent up to par or 6 cars was too much for the PSP) with it so they scrapped it and wasnt touched for a couple years, but Sony said “no way, we paid you all to develop a PSP game.” So, they took what they had completed, added some newer cars, left out the night time tracks all together, took the license tests and renamed them challenges and added the drift mode and released it as is.
    Still fun but really not a complete game. Thank god for ad-hoc party…

  11. guys look here’s another graph:

  12. so people fell for PDs marketing move… release GT5P… delay GT5, Release GT PSP… Delay GT5… and with nothing but a 2 year old “Demo”… obviously we are going to get any GT we can get our hands on… and that GT being the PSP.

    Smart move sony.

  13. red pyramid

    im there hehehehehee!!!!

    i hope sony after looking this make DLC!!!!!!!!

  14. I bought the umd copy myself… I was under the impression that this didn’t sell very well but I’m glad I was wrong!

  15. the GT franchise has sold over 55 millions copies in total that’s a hell of a lot which ever way you look at it.

    http://kotaku.com/5466422/gran-turismo-series-55-million-sold-and-counting

    can’t see GT5 outselling GT4 (nevermind GT3) because the install base of the PS3 isn’t in the same league as the PS2 when GT4 launched…still should go platinum in all three teritories.

  16. TheHell

    I have downloaded it becouse i didn’t felt obliged to buy it becouse of Sony and PD’s ( gt5 things )

  17. Just for the record: GTpsp was released in the EU a week before the Japanese release. So stop whining an lying.

  18. Detroitbb

    Imagine their sales figures if PD did something more substantial than just stripping down and porting GT4’s arcade mode to the PSP. All the bad reviews asking “Where is the game?” certainly don’t make people want to shell out hard-earned cash.

  19. To Be honest the figures mean nothing to Sony Execs. At the end of the day they will release stuff for Europe either last or with America. Europe wont see a Before Japan release date. Neither will America EVEN though looking at GT PSP’s Figures the European Userbase is the biggest.

    Sonys antiquated (<—-spelling) way of splitting regions by the Pal / NTSC coding really needs to be sorted out. How can you call India or South Africa as part of SCEE? It just does not make sense.

  20. Torero82

    Where is Africa, South America, and Australia?

  21. |Roope|

    @maxpontiac

    I think so too…

  22. maxpontiac

    I might be mistaken, but hasn’t the combined GT5P and GT PSP come close to outselling Forza 2 and 3??

  23. the 1.8 million-record is only for 3 months (Oct.1 ~ Dec. 2009), not 4 months.

  24. Lets hope with the Europe sales dominating that Gt5 will be released at the same time everywhere…

  25. Word.

    84/7

  26. R53freak

    I don’t care, I just wish the released GT5 before GT PSP.

  27. NoxNoctis Umbra

    Thats a lot of nuts!

  28. Tompie913

    It also interesting to see on that list that GT5 Prologue is the best selling PS3 title. And GT3 and 4 are second and third for the PS2. And GT1 is first on the PS1. And GT2 is third for the PS1… It really is Sony’s biggest franchise.

  29. 1.420.000 total In US and EU… And they still don´t care about us (EU and US) and force always the Japan release first… I don´t understand that…

  30. S3 Racer

    definately the best racing on handheld ever made and that will last for a couple of years.
    only competitior is Gt itself…
    Bought the psp fat only for gt. Who thought there will be 3 psp inbetween till gt release

  31. ismellbacon611

    definately the best racing game on psp …. i love the game…

  32. Well I enjoyed GT-PSP although there is no way I’ll complete it. Actually I’ve considered getting a PSPGo just so I can use my Dual Shock 3 with it and make the experience more enjoyable.

    If the GTPSP –> GT5 thing turns out to be significant I will play GTPSP more :)

    ps: I too bought the downloadable version despite only having a PSP-2000. UMDs are so passe.

  33. And like always, more copies sold in Europe even though we are always the latest to get a game like GT.

  34. You can install data from the UMD to the memory stick to reduce loa.ding times

  35. Bogie 19th

    Lots and lots of those are free ones too though.

  36. oneloops

    I detest GT-PSP because it has delayed gt5 ! grrrrrrrrrrrr

  37. NLxAROSA

    @S3 Racer: there’s an option in GT PSP to store the entire game on Memorystick, eliminating the extra load time from the UMD version.

  38. Are downloads included?

    Cause I got my GT psp from the PSN store.

  39. S3 Racer

    yeah umd takes an aweful time to load compared to digital

  40. @ S3 Racer, I bought it two times. One UMD version the day before release (thank you lady in the shop ) The other was the psn version as I hate needing UMD’s.

  41. Paul Mc

    I see GT has sold 55 million copies since the franchise began. Interesting to see the drop in sales between GT3 and GT4.

  42. Mohammed

    I’m from the Middle East and our Area is considered to be under Europe, I think.

  43. S3 Racer

    Marcom:
    Me too, one free one special edition.yeah what the numberswould be if the psp would not have pirated games? Double it

  44. I contributed 2 copies in Europe :) Great game, the greatest game on the psp.

  45. thank god piracy don affected GT5 this time.so it will huge profits for PD after this…i can’t figure how much it will sold..

  46. Does this include all the free copies given away????

  47. alucard0712

    Hm…..PD alive?They very silent after delay…

  48. Snaeper
