Gran Turismo 5 Shifts 5.5m Units
Gran Turismo 5 has apparently sold 5.5 million copies in its first 12 days on sale, although SCE only refers to sell-in numbers to retailers, rather than sell-through copies to consumers.
From launch on 24 November up until 6 December Gran Turismo 5 sold 550,000 copies in Japan, 1.25 million in the US, 3.56 million across Europe and 160,000 elsewhere in Asia.
It's probably something to do with the game being quite good, although we're not totally convinced by the recent mechanical damage patch. Expect plenty more to come from Yamuachi and co. too. Check out the sales breakdown below.
