GT3 was the best of the series IMO

Strange timing to announce this. What is the significance of 67.8 million copies?

I've exchanged a very significant amount of sunlight for CRT light grinding for GT One '99 and then Escudo Pikes Peak back then. Sadly, I've mostly missed out on all after GT2, not having PS2 or PS3 of my own, and if there's a single reason why I'd want a Sony console, it's definitely Gran Turismo series :(
