Gran Turismo 5 will be the biggest selling PlayStation 3 game of the year. That’s according to online retailer ShopTo.net who say sales of Gran Turismo 5 have risen significantly since it was revealed the game will finally be released on November 24th.
“We’ve never seen anything like this before,” said ShopTo Marketing Manager Philip Driver.
“As soon as the new release date was announced the sales just went through the roof. This is a game that most PS3 owners have been waiting a long time for.”
“Luckily we have prepared well and will be able to get GT5 to everyone that orders for release day.”
Gran Turismo 5 was supposed to be release on November 3rd, but was delayed once again in October in order to make it the ‘perfect’ experience. Some suggested that we’d fail to see Gran Turismo 5 this year, but earlier this month creator Kazunori Yamauchi said the discs were being stamped, while Sony assured the waiting public that the game would be out before Christmas.
Gran Turismo 5 will feature over 1000 cars, and 20 tracks – including the Top Gear test track. Yamauchi is confident that fans will be satisified with Gran Turismo 5 despite the long, long wait:
“Our objective with GT5 was to create another great revolution which would not only satisfy our own high expectations, but would meet or even exceed the anticipation of the fans.”
Gran Turismo 5 is set for release in less than two weeks time on November 24th.
So Train2Game, do you think Gran Turismo 5 will really be the biggest selling PlayStation 3 game of the year? Can the racer out do the sales of Call of Duty: Black Ops on the PlayStation 3? Do you think it’ll be able to claim top spot in the video game chart?
