Remember the contest held to title the Daiki Kasho song used in Gran Turismo 5‘s E3 2010 trailer? The winner was finally announced last week after Kazunori Yamauchi made his selection from 5,444 entries: “5OUL ON D!SPLAY”.
While sharing the announcement on their website, Polyphony Digital also released some interesting statistics about the contest. For example, although the it was open to the world, an overwhelming number of entries came from the United States (1077) – more than double those received from second-place UK (452). “Soul on Display” was actually one of the most popular suggestions (89 entries), but “One Reason” was the most popular with 274 submissions.
MajanoX of Argentina (now a GTPlanet user!), however, was clever enough to create a title that caught Yamauchi’s eye that was also unique. As his reward, his name will be immortalized in GT5‘s credits. Congratulations!
