Polyphony Digital's long-delayed Gran Turismo 5 has debuted in pole position in the all-formats UK chart, overtaking Call of Duty: Black Ops for highest number of sales in the week ending November 27.

Kazunori Yamauchi's driving simulator joins Heavy Rain and God of War III as the third Sony-exclusive title to sit at number one on the UK sales chart in 2010.

Ubisoft Montreal's Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood maintains its strong position in third place in the chart, while Criterion Games' critically-acclaimed Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit drops three places from last week to number 6.

The real test is to see how long it lasts on the charts.

Racing games always premiere big in Europe, and do very well during their first month. F1 2010 was in the top 10 for a little while and Forza Motorsport 3 reappeared in the Top 20 list for 7 months after its release. I expect GT5 to perform better, and for F1 2010 to match that.

I don't know if it was worth PD to repeatedly delay it. Most of the issues I have with the game are related to key decisions made, rather than the amount of time spent on certain features.
