Gran Turismo 5 developer Polyphony Digital has opened its books and revealed that the latest version in its sim-racing series has sold more than six million units around the globe.

This sales chart from the company shows that Europe is the leading seller of the game, accounting for almost four million in sales, with North America nabbing second place with over a million in sales. Surprisingly, Polyphony's home country of Japan only makes up for just over a half-a-million in sales. Then again, looking at the historical sales chart, Japan has usually notched third place in the franchise's history.

With greatest hits status surely still to come, it'll be interesting to see how GT 5 stacks up against the other entries in the series in the long run.

  1. Now that you mention the sales numbers, it may account for the selection of cars they have in the game. There is a large emphasis on European models and American models. I especially liked the Nascar touch and the strategic way in which a player must drive in order to win. My biggest gripe with the game besides the load times(which sometimes turns into uh oh the game just went into limbo on me) is the lack of Porsche better known as Ruff in the GT world.
