With the release of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue
set to drop next week in PAL territories, Eurogamer
is reporting that pre-orders of the latest game in the series are pushing nearly 1 million in Europe.
According to the article, it is the first time that a PS3 title has racked up more than 1 million sales, all but certifying that the game will reach "platinum" status before it is even released. Eurogamer also has a review
posted for Prologue
giving the game a respectable "8 out of 10".
As much as I am a fan of the series, I am not looking forward to Prologue
as it's basically just an extended demo which you have to pay for. Knowing that the game has already reached 1 million pre-orders is both staggering and disappointing.
Lets see if SCEA can pull of those numbers before the game hits the states April 17th.
