Gran Turismo on the PSP is doing wonders on the PSP. After many years of delay the game has been a huge success on Sony’s portable console. Polyphony Digital, the Japan-based studio behind Gran Turismo, has just released the latest sales numbers of the franchise. Released in October 2009, Gran Turismo PSP has shifted over 1.8 million units both on UMD and via digital download.
It’s unclear if the numbers include the Sony PSPgo GT give-away, but this is an impressive number nonetheless. GT PSP has sold:
- 320,000 units in Japan
- 40,000 units in Asia
- 820,000 units in Europe
- 620,000 units in North America.
These latest figures push the Gran Turismo series past the 55 million mark. The highly anticipated Gran Turismo 5 is set to launch later in 2010, exclusively on the PS3.
