Gran Turismo 5 Dominates UK Competition

August 4, 2009 Written by Kyle P.


Coming off the accidental misprint of £17, Gran Turismo 5 has surged to number one on the Amazon UK Videogame Charts. Yes, Sony’s racing behemoth managed to trump long-standing champions, the Wii and Wii Fit; both of which have spent 3 years and 1 year in the top 100, respectively.

This comes just one day after England nearly sank with the excitement of when Amazon UK accidentally set the price of Gran Turismo 5 at a measly 17 pounds. With today’s exchange rates, that comes out to around $28. Amazon, however, quickly saw fit to change the price back to the recommended 38 pounds.
