ShopTo.Net Predicts Huge Success For Gran Turismo 5

ShopTo.Net has predicted that Gran Turismo 5 on the PlayStation 3 will be the biggest selling PS3 game of the year.

ShopTo.net the fastest growing UK video games and movies retailer, has predicted that the soon to be released Gran Turismo 5 video game will be the biggest selling PlayStation 3 game of the year. In production for five years and given several previous release dates, GT5 has now been confirmed for launch on the 24 th November. The Sony title developed by Polyphony Digital Inc is already ShopTo.Net’s current biggest selling pre-order with still over a week to go.

Gran Turismo 5 puts you in control of over 1,000 cars from standard production models to ultimate supercars, driving on 20 tracks, each with 70 variations. With unmatched photo-realistic graphics and game immersion, including stereoscopic 3D compatibility, GT5 is the ultimate driving simulator.

Not content with simply selling GT5 at a market leading price of£34.85 ShopTo.Net also teamed up with Sony to make one person’s purchase of GT5 extra special. Everyone that pre-orders Gran Turismo 5 from ShopTo is automatically entered into a prize draw to win a supercar race day worth£900.

“We’ve never seen anything like this before,” ShopTo Marketing Manager Philip Driver.

“As soon as the new release date was announced the sales just went through the roof. This is a game that most PS3 owners have been waiting a long time for.”

“Luckily we have prepared well and will be able to get GT5 to everyone that orders for release day.”

Recently Polyphony reiterated their message that the reason for the delays was simply because they wanted to create the perfect racing game.

Kazunori Yamauchi, president of Polyphony Digital Inc, said: "Our objective with GT5 was to create another great revolution which would not only satisfy our own high expectations, but would meet or even exceed the anticipation of the fans."

Gran Turismo 5 is release on the 24 th November.
