According to the UKIE (UK Interactive Entertainment), Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo Sport PlayStation 4 exclusive racing game topped last week’s charts across the United Kingdom.

While the actual number of units moved wasn’t revealed, the UKIE pointed out that it managed to beat Gran Turismo, Gran Turismo 3 and Gran Turismo 6, while slightly surpassing Middle-earth: Shadow of War. The latter reference is perhaps the most significant as we know that Shadow of War sold 82K units in its first week across the United Kingdom, so Gran Turismo Sport could be approximately around 85K or so.

Nathan reviewed Gran Turismo Sport and thought that it’s a smooth ride, albeit one missing something under the hood.

Gran Turismo Sport is a good game, and yet, it’s still a disappointment. Given this series’ pedigree, good simply isn’t good enough. GT Sport still brings it on the track, but its lack of content can’t be ignored, and you can’t give the game top marks in world where Forza Motorsport 7 and Project CARS 2 exist. If you’re a diehard fan of Sony’s series or really into online racing, GT Sport is worth a shot. If you just want the best racing sim out there, you may want to kick some more tires.
