Gran Turismo 5 Outshines Forza Sales

If two racing titles have made a name for themselves in the video game industry, its certainly (PS3 exclusive) Gran Turismo 5 and (360 exclusive) Forza 3. But which one is better? Well that is left to the opinion of the gamers. However, the two racing simulations each share a piece of critical superiority. Both racing giants are great games in their own right, but Forza 3 wins in the category of critical acclaim. Gran Turismo 5 currently holds an 84 metacritic score while Forza 3 retains a 92 metacritic rating. What about the other end of the stick, sales, you ask? Well the third Forza title sold about 4.8 million units in one year and four months. Gran Turismo 5 blew that mark out of the water by selling 6.08 million units within just four months. A entire year before Forza 3‘s success. Shall I be bold enough to ask what the readers think the better of the two is?


Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
