Polyphony Digital has provided official, updated sales figures for their racing sim Gran Turismo 5. As of September 2011, it has sold 7.3 million units, 1 million more than where it stood at the same time last year.
GT5 sold the most in Europe, selling 4.5 million copies, then North America with 1.8 million copies and then Japan with 650K copies sold. The rest were sold in other parts of Asia.
Gran Turismo 5 released just a year ago, in November 2010. It’s surprising to see a PS3 exclusive sell so well, so quickly.
In our review of Gran Turismo 5, we gave it a 9/10, calling it “the best racing experience on the PlayStation 3”. Read the full review through the link.
