Forza Motorsport 5 has sold over 1 million copies on Xbox One, Microsoft has revealed.

"Forza Motorsport 5 has been embraced by Xbox One fans worldwide, with more than one-third of console owners purchasing the game since its November 22 launch," explained a post on Xbox Wire.

We know the Xbox One has sold through over 3 million units, meaning the game sales stand at over 1 million.

The post adds that Forza 5 is "the best-selling racing game by console attach over the past decade," and if you can figure out what this means please let us know.

The sales data comes in addition to the release of the game's first track add-on update, Road America. The new track is free to all Forza 5 players and will be fully integrated into the game's Career mode.

And there's more. The Road America Booster pack is also available now priced £3.99 or free to Car Pass owners. The pack features the 2006 #2 Audi Sport North America R8, 1995 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1, 1968 Ferrari 365 GTB/4, 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1, and the 2009 Mercedes-Benz SL 65 AMG Black Series.

Ah... My eyes have got dollar signs in them at the thought of Turdbox 720. I apologise for jumping the gun.

It was also bundled into quite a few European launch consoles. Maybe that has something to do with it?

What's to stop me making my own console, say a turd in a shoebox, for arguments sake lets call it the Turdbox 720, and the built in racing game being navigate the 'turd' around a series of obstacles for the best score... I digress, anyway, if only one Turdbox 720 is made, with its built in racing game, then surely my console now has "the best-selling racing game by console attach over the past decade,".

It'll be on eBay by the end of the week.

It means that for the last 10 years no companies console has had a better racing game attach rate. Ie. 1 in 3 people who have an xbox one own Forza. This 1 in 3 rate hasn't been bested for 10 years. Think the only game that has come close is PGR3 on the 360.

It's pretty pointless data as by the time the games sell high numbers there are millions more consoles and masses of additional choice so attach rates to individual games fall unless it's GTAV or similar.

All you can determine by this is that Forza 5 was an extremely popular launch title the most popular racing launch title of the last 10 years.
