Gran Turismo 5 ships 5.5 million, 60 million for series

Sixty million. That's how far the Gran Turismo series reaches. Now that we can figure in the numbers for the newest game, Gran Turismo 5, we now know that 60 million units have been shipped for Polyphony Digital's racer. That counts all the games, including the PSP title. This crazy number was reached in 12 years and 11 months, as it all started back in December of 1997 with Gran Turismo, the original.

Gran Turismo 5 flying off the shelves definitely helped this number. Since its launch last month, GT5 has shipped 5.5 million units worldwide. That's pretty impressive for a month's time.

Sony sent along a breakdown of the total worldwide number for each GT game. The highest number goes to Gran Turismo 3 A-spec, which hit 14.8 million units worldwide after its release back in 2001. Both GT1 and GT4 sit at just under 11 million mark. The most surprising number is for Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. That oversized demo moved over 5 million copies if you count downloads. 

Keep on keepin' on, Polyphony Digital. I've loved them all so far.
