Polyphony’s acclaimed driving sim series speeds through the 40 million mark...
Sales figures from the Gran Turismo series today found their way onto the net, suggesting that Polyphony Digitalâ??s long-standing series has plenty of life left yet.
Debuting on the PSOne, figures for the original Gran Turismo stand at 10.84 million units (Japan 2.25 million, North America 3.99 million, Europe 4.29 million); on the same format Gran Turismo 2 sold slightly less at 9.34 million (Japan 1.71 million, North America 3.96 million, Europe 3.65 million).
The series move onto the Playstation2 with the release of Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec currently stands out as the largest title in the series, shifting an unbelievable 14.36 million copies (Japan 1.89 million, North America 6.88 million, Europe 5.58 million). The muted release of Gran Turismo Concept Series and Gran Turismo 4 â??Prologueâ? still managed to shift close to 1.5 million units each, while the recent release of Gran Turismo 4 currently stands at 6.25 million worldwide (Japan 1.09 million, North America 1.94 million, Europe 3.12 million).
With total sales of the series bursting past the 40 million mark, itâ??s believed that Kazunori Yamauchi and his team are currently taking time away to develop an original title; but with talk of damage, the intriguing prospect of GT4 Mobile and suggestions made during the launch of GT4, we doubt itâ??ll be too long before the latest title in the Gran Turismo series arrives.
