Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced today that first day sales of Gran Turismo 4 have broken the record for Playstation 2 in PAL territories. The single day sales have been impressive to say the least, shipping 3,182,535 units of the game. The game is also shipped with the new slimmer Playstation 2 model. In total so far, the Gran Turismo series has sold about 38 million units around the world.
"The reaction to Gran Turismo 4 from retailers across PAL territories has exceeded even our high expectations," said David Reeves, President, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. "This Day One number reflects the popularity and broad appeal of the series – not only with seasoned GT buyers but with driving fans, motoring enthusiasts and casual gamers alike. We expect Gran Turismo 4 to become the "must-have" title for anyone who owns a PlayStation 2 or anyone thinking about purchasing one."
