Polyphony Digital has updated their title sales list, and the new numbers are impressive. Between January and September of 2011, Gran Turismo 5 moved an additional 1 million copies. This brings the game’s total sales up to 7.3 million, and helped push the entire series past 64.7 million sold.
Despite the big numbers, GT5 still falls quite short of Polyphony Digital’s highest-selling game, Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec, at 14.8 million copies, and remains the fourth most popular game of the series. However, as GT5 stays in the news with frequent updates and new downloadable content, it may hold sales momentum throughout 2012.
Here’s some more surprising statistics about the GT series over the past year (2010’s numbers, for comparison, are available here):
- Gran Turismo 4 – now over six years old and built for the PlayStation 2 – picked up an additional 190,000 sales in 2011, bringing its total to 11.38 million
- GT5: Prologue – now over three years old – sold an additional 130,000 copies, despite GT5‘s availability
- Gran Turismo PSP – now over two years old – sold another 370,000 copies 2011, bringing its total to 2.69 million
Congratulations to Polyphony Digital on another great year, and thanks to roberto for the tip!
