Gran Turismo 5 ships 5.5 million

Series crosses the 60 million mark.

Sony has shipped 5.5 million copies of simulation racer Gran Turismo 5 worldwide since launch.

Remember, shipped means delivered to retailers. It does not mean sold.

Still, it's an impressive figure. The game had sold 486,389 copies in Japan as of 5th December (according to Andriasang), meaning the majority of sales occurred outside of Japan.

Gran Turismo 5 was the eighth best-selling game in the US for the month of November. It topped both the Japanese and UK all-formats chart upon release.

The success of Polyphony Digital's racer has helped push the series past the 60 million units shipped mark. Gran Turismo launched on the PlayStation in December 1997.
