If people knew what all they've done to it since release they would've sold even more.

What all have they done to it since release? I just recently bought it, wasn't really paying much attention to the game before I was able to purchase it.

Also, why isn't GT5 Prologue on that list of sales?

So true. The list of changes done do this game since release is massive.

I love the amount of changes done to GT5, but I have to admit...Forza 3 is funner IMO.
Still, both games are great, shame they're so jaggy due to the lack of horsepower in the consoles.

By the numbers, GT3 still rules! I think the later games added too much, and GT5 is what, five years overdue?

If you compared the original gt5 release to what's available now after several patches it's clear they are putting a lot more work into it.

I think all the stuff that was left out of the game due to "time restraints" lol is slowly being patched in. Kudos to them for looking after a game properly after it's release! Most companies would take all the extras & flog it to hungry consumers for $15 per DLC.
new build :)

Glad to hear it's selling well. And I agree, I like the patches too. The seasonal events have me hooked, I log in all the time just to clear those out. I wish I had 3 playstations and 3 tv's to make use of the latest patch though...

Agreed. And online is easier to get to and play with Forza. I loved the tag mode too.

Where can I make such a comparison? That was kind of my question... I'd just like to know specifically what the differences were.

Wow, from GT 4 to GT5, there's a loss of approx 5 million users?!
