Polyphony digital has just updated its numbers for the Gran Turismo franchise and the results are quite good.
Earlier the sales were are 7.3 million units and it looks like the game has sold 1.5 million more approximately, to hit 9 million units. It is still lower than the PS2 versions, mind.
Gran Turismo 3 remains the highest selling game, followed by Gran Turismo 4. The series’ influence in the United States has declined a lot and majority of sales have been from Europe, but still considering the PS3 install base, this is a massive achievement.
The game is the lowest scoring GT game too, averaging at 84 on Metacritic. Polyphony has hinted about Gran Turismo 6 previously and we are not sure whether it will be released for the PS3.
It sold 2 million in the US and 5.5 million in the EU. That’s quite a difference compared to Gran Turismo 3.
Here are the complete series stats:
