Ahead of the launch of Gran Turismo Sport next year, Polyphony Digital have gone ahead and updated their website. Most of the website is just standard stuff, showing off the company, their history, and their products. However, more interestingly for all of us, they also updated the sales numbers for each Gran Turismo title on their website- and we learned some pretty interesting things along the way.

For example, we now know that Gran Turismo 5 was definitely a success for the company, selling nearly 12 million units worldwide. Gran Turismo’s PSP outing was also wildly successful, selling 4.6 million units worldwide (which makes it the highest selling PSP game of all time). However, it appears as though the last outing in the franchise, Gran Turismo 6 on the PS3, fared less well, selling only 4.7 million units across the board, a number which is a dramatic decline from just how well the rest of the numbered games in the series have managed to perform so far.

But if even a game like GT6, generally considered disappointing, and having released only on the PS3 with little marketing after the PS4 had already launched, could move nearly 5 million copies worldwide, it bodes well for the overall health for the series- who knows, Gran Turismo Sport may set the charts on fire next year again. On a related the series has solid a massive 76.5 million copies. Can it reach the 100 million mark? Only time will tell.

    Gran Turismo 6 on the PS3 = 4.7 million ( considered disappointing )

    Forza Motorsport 4 on 360 = 4.5 million?

    Forza Motorsport 5 on Xbone =2.7 million?

    • Truth™

      Proof that console plebs will buy inferior sims on machines that can’t handle them

    • Gamez Rule

      And no matter how powerful your PC is it can’t play all games made and that’s why a real gamer uses more than one device LMAO!

      You stay with ya PC views and poor fankid advice while real gamers use all types of devices to play games on☺

    • Truth™

      You are right

      Wii U and PC is the only combination you need this generation since there’s no games on PS4 🙂

    • Gamez Rule

      Clearly crying over waiting 2nd place for Konima’s games☺

    • Terminator

      GT6 on PS3 with 80 million sold only 4.7? Ya I see why it was a disappointment

      Forza 5 on Xbox One with 5 million on its first 5 or 6 months? No wonder it wasn’t a disappointment

      The bigger the install base the more you expect the game to sell.

    • Gamez Rule

      “Forza 5 on Xbox One with 5 million on its first 5 or 6 months?” Got link as I can’t see the official Forza 5 sales?

      Forza 5 released 22 Nov-2013. On February 18, 2014 Microsoft announced one third of Xbox One owners have bought the Forza 5

      At that time ( Microsoft shipped 3.9m Xbox One units globally, so you’re looking at around 1.3m sales )

    • Terminator

      Forza 4 same thing as GT6 and selling 2 thousand less isn’t something to brag about.

    • Gamez Rule

      To class GT6 sales as ( considered disappointing ) should also reflect on Forza 4 too due to having approx- the same install base.

      Also have you got the Forza 5 link showing 5 million within 5-6 months of release?

    • Terminator

      “To class GT6 sales as ( considered disappointing ) should also reflect on Forza 4 too due to having approx- the same install base.”

      and thats why i said same as GT6 both sold poorly both were a disappointment.

      “Also have you got the Forza 5 link showing 5 million within 5-6 months of release?”

      No I don’t but they did announced that they had shipped 10 million units by the end of 2014 so its not so far fetched.

    • Gamez Rule

      IF a game sold on Xbone at 5 million sales in 6 mths we would have heard about it. Truth is that game could be far from those figures

    • Terminator

      There is no truth because you dont know that. First and last figure we were given was that Forza 5 sold more than a million units so it being over 2 million isnt that far fetched especially being one of the few launch titles for the Xbox One and only racer on the system.

    • Gamez Rule

      You wanna talk about truths, ok then.

      You stated “Forza 5 on Xbox One with 5 million on its first 5 or 6 months”

      I call that BS, and far from the truth. Show the so called sales figures that you posted up then? The truth is you cannot as you lied about those figures to make the Forza 5 better than what it is in the sales department.

      If no link shown and more excuses it shows what I stated above is correct…and true☺

    • Terminator

      What I stated was a question in other words I was guessing because by the end of 2014 Microsoft stated they had shipped 10 MILLION.

      Umm didn’t you state Forza 5 sold 1.3 million? That out of the 3.9 million xboxs sold/shipped 1/3 of Xbox One owners bought Forza 5. Well you didn’t come up with that since it was Microsoft who stated it. So ya my truth is much closer than yours.

    • Gamez Rule

      No you are wrong again…I stated that MS said..”On February 18, 2014 Microsoft announced one third of Xbox One owners have bought the Forza 5″

      I did not say ( Microsoft was the ones who stated the 1.3 million ) LMAO!

      I posted “At that time ( Microsoft shipped 3.9m Xbox One units globally, so you’re looking at around 1.3m sales )” Where did I state MS said this…Oh I didn’t, but going by what MS said on Feb-18th-2014 this would have made those approx-sales,

      But fact is YOU came out with Forza 5 selling 5 million in 6mths which is BS and untrue☺

    • Terminator
    • Gamez Rule

      What a good way to change the subject BUT stiill MS has shipped / sold to retailers….NOT sold to consumers unlike PS4 has with 30.2 million.

    • Terminator

      Change the subject? You asked for a link and I gave it to you. I stated 5 million and I was correct. The one who is changing the subject here is you bringing up Sony sales numbers when we were talking about Forza and Xbox one sales.

      I proved you wrong 🙂

    • Gamez Rule

      BS! and more lies..

      The links you posted up showed Xbone sales / sold to retailers, and nothing to do with Forza 5 selling 5 million in 6mths

      EVERYONE can see how much of a tool you really are LMAO!, You have NO official Forza 5 sales showing 5 million being sold in 6 months ☺☺☺

    • Terminator

      Oh I see what’s going on you miss understood me. I never said that Forza 5 sold 5 million but that the Xbox One sold 5 million in those 5 or 6 months after its released.

    • Gamez Rule

      You stated “Forza 5 on Xbox One with 5 million on its first 5 or 6 months”..That is showing Forza 5 on Xbone 5 million in 6 mths lol

      And to back that up you said in you post this “You asked for a link and I gave it to you. I stated 5 million and I was correct. The one who is changing the subject here is you bringing up Sony sales numbers when we were talking about Forza and Xbox one sales”.

      .Why not bring up sales of a console IF we was on about Forza 5 LOL

    • Terminator

      Yep Xbox One with 5 million not Forza 5 with 5 million

    • Terminator

      I have to bring Xbox One sales to understand why Forza sales weren’t bad but bring up PS4 sales is changing the subject.

    • XbotMK1

      Pay no attention to Terminator. He is a Microsoft drone hypocrite and a liar.

      Terminator: “GT6 on PS3 with 80 million sold only 4.7? Ya I see why it was a disappointment.” “Forza 5 on Xbox One with 5 million on it’s 5 or 6 months? No wonder it wasn’t a disappointment”

      Install base has nothing to do with anything. Total sales is total sales and that is all that matters. Just because you have a huge install base doesn’t mean a game has to sell huge numbers to not be considered a disappointment. That is dumb and narrow minded logic. Those other 75 million people might just be more interested in other games.

      Lets say the PS3 had an install base of 1 billion and Gran Turismo 6 only sold 30 million coppies on PS3. Now lets say the Xbox 360 only had an install base of 5 million and Forza 4 sold 2 million coppies.

      Does that mean Gran Turismo 6 sales were a disappointment and Forza 4’s sales weren’t even though Gran Turismo 6 sold 15 times the amount? Terminator’s logic is that of a bias fanboy. He’s trying to use install base as a fallacy to excuse Forza 5’s even lower sales as being ok and Gran Turismo 6’s higher sales as being disappointing.

      And he doesn’t take into account that if Forza 5 sales weren’t disappointing, why didn’t Xbox One have a bigger install base? What was stopping people from picking up an Xbox One to play Forza 5? Low sales are low sales. Terminator is indirectly bashing Xbox One. He’s basically saying, “Well, it’s ok if Forza 5 had lower sales because if more people would have bought Xbox One, it would have a bigger install base.”

      He also ignored the possibility that early adoptors are the most hardcore Xbox and Forza fans who are probably the only ones who would buy Forza 5 even if Xbox One had an install base of 30 million.

      Then he also ignored how Forza 6 flopped compared to Forza 5 even with triple the install base that Xbox One had when Forza 5 launched. Now THAT is what you could consider as a disappointment.

      Then he ignored how Forza 4 sold about 4-5 million coppies on the Xbox 360 which had an install base of about 80 million and long before Xbox One was coming out. So if Gran Turismo 6 sold 4.7 million on the ancient PS3 even after the PS4 came out, and those sales are disappointing, what does that make Forza 4 and Forza 5?

      It’s also worth taking into account that Gran Turismo 6 launched the same time as the highly anticipated PS4. People were moving onto next gen so many people probably passed on Gran Turismo 6 for the ancient PS3.

    • Gamez Rule

      You are correct, fact is IF GT6 is classed as a *disappointment* to some then what does that say for Forza 4 which was outsold by that so called *disappointment* LOL.

    • Tech junkie

      It’s a disappointment in sales when each game in the series sells less than it predecessor. Difficult concept but it’s true. Black ops 3 by itself great game. Compared to previous titles, not so good.

    • Terminator

      Very well said.

    • XbotMK1

      Not really.

    • Terminator

      Yes really.

    • XbotMK1

      But at least Gran Turismo 6 has somewhat of a defense because it launched on the PS3 when people were already moving to the PS4.

      What is the excuse for Forza 4, Forza 5, and Forza 6?

    • Tech junkie

      Except there are still 80 million PS3’s . PS4 had barley been on the market. Most PS3 gamers were still on PS3 6 months after GT6 was released.

      Like usual and GT was late and GT 6 should have been released on both consoles at the very least. Had they come to market on PS4. I would own a PS4 and I have at least 4 friends that would have bought a PS4 over xbox.

    • XbotMK1

      Install base isn’t an excuse. It’s a flawed argument Terminator. Just because most PS3 gamers were still on the PS3 6 months after GT6 released doesn’t mean most GT fans decided to move onto the PS4. It doesn’t matter if the PS3 had an install base of 80 million and Xbox One only had an install base of 5 million.That is like Microsoft saying, “Well it’s ok if there were only 2 coppies of Halo 5 sold because only 4 Xbox Ones have been sold.” The ratio of game sales to install base is irrelevant. There was only about 14 million coppies of Gran Turismo 4 sold on a total of about 160 million PS2s sold which is a large gap in game sales to install base ratio.

      Just because the ratio of games sold to consoles sold is close, such as Forza 5, doesn’t mean it wasn’t a disappointment. It could just mean you have low game sales because nobody wants Forza 5 therefore nobody bought an Xbox One, where as people wanted a PS2 but most people who wanted a PS2 didn’t care about Gran Turismo 4. Total game sales are what determine demand and popularity period.

      The PS3 is an old console and many Gran Turismo fans could’ve moved onto the PS4, which would explain why Gran Turismo 6 sold less than Gran Turismo 5. If Gran Turismo 6 was on the PS4 as well, it could’ve sold more. But Xbox One is a completely new console with a big enough install base for Forza to sell a lot, so why did Forza 5 sell so much less than Gran Turismo 6 and why did Forza 6 sell even less than Forza 5? You claim Microsoft turned out the best sim racer on console ever, yet sales don’t reflect your fanboy claims. Why did Gran Turismo 6 on the ancient PS3 outsell “the greatest sim racer on console ever”?

    • Tech junkie

      You are a 100% delusional fanboy. Install base doesn’t matter but every single GT fan that got ps4 got rid of thier ps3 and didn’t buy gt6.

      Give me a break. You are literally insane.

  • Truth™

    Can’t wait for GT Sport to come out and flop in the face of superior PC sims. They can re-use those PS2 models for the 720P VR Mode since that’s all the flopstation 4 can handle 🙂

  • Tech junkie

    Worst selling GT ever. Really too bad, GT has gone so down hill. Used to be the king of console racers. Constant delays waiting to see what innovation Forza comes up with.

    Given all the delays GT5 should have been what GT6 was. Then they would have had something. Meanwhile me and the rest of the sim racers moved to Xbox and PC while PS fans get driveclub lol
