    Latest Performance of the Major Racing Franchise of the Big 3

    Kyuu said: atma998 said: The thing is GT5 did not sell much more than GT4 and there is no point in counting the Prologue titles unless you want to spin the numbers in favor of GT5, thus why I consider the decline started somewhere between GT4 and GT5. Yes there actually is a point to that. It shows that interests in GT5 were a lot higher than 4 despite PS3's smaller...

    in Sales Discussion on 20 June 2018

    Kyuu said: atma998 said: Sorry but decline already started with GT5 as GT5 was the first title of past gen and should have done as much or even better as GT3 did on PS2. There is no point in denying that. Also the PS2 userbase was way lower than the PS3 one when GT3 was released in early 2001 vs. GT5 in late 2010. Timing of a release within a console lifecycle is essential in...

    BlackBeauty said: I wish people would stop using number players = copies sold. MK8 for example sold over 9 million copies you can bet the numbers of players would double, triple that at the very least since the switch can have 8 accounts. Plus Mario is usually bought by families. One copy can be played by the parents, the kids, the cousins....etc Number of players = your game flopped...

    Kyuu said: Different categories but I won't complain about it. GTS was clearly going to flop relative to series' standards, it's one of the safest and most accurate predictions I made on VGChartz. Now, a proper GT7 as a launch or early PS5 title could easily break 9 million (On second thought, it may not be too easy anymore. The damage extent of all the missteps remains to be seen) but...

Last time I checked, Mario Kart was considered a racing game. The goal is to finish first. It's arcade racing....

Agreed. Don't forget MK games have very long legs. MK7 is still charting in the top 50 and has been released about 7 years ago....

    Acevil said: GT's decline is sad sight to see, namely how awesome the franchise was long time ago. Also wondering if MK8 should be combined with MK8D, since most treat it like a port on this site. I was hesitating to combine their sales but since it is on a new system and it has been released 3 years after, I decided to consider it as a disctinct entry....

    Here is a graph showing how well or bad is performing each of the major racing franchise in retail lately. This comparison is for racing genre at large so needless to point out the difference between racing simulator and arcade racing. This graph is only to see the trend in the major racing franchises of the Big 3.   A few comment on this: - After the huge drop between MK7 and MK8, due...

    Shaunodon said: I think 15-20 million sounds like a fair call from what we've seen so far. One of the analysts at the last investor's meeting, actually thinks it will do 10m by as early as March next year. So it could honestly have the potential to even go past 20m pretty easily. 10M by next March would be incredible given the install base. This would mean an attach rate over the...

    in Gaming Discussion on 05 November 2017

    Nintendo confirmed that the recently released and critically acclaimed Super Mario Odyssey is the fastest-selling title in the Super Mario platformer series. The previous record holder was New Super Mario Bros. Wii , which released in 2009. New Super Mario Bros. Wii has sold 28.4M according to VGC. While Super Mario Odyssey LT sales looks promising, I don't see them reach that number for the...

    Jumpin said: atma998 said: By today's standards maybe, but these games were all revolutionary back in 1985-86 when they were released. Just take a look at what a sports game looked like on Atari 2600. I was there when these games launched, and played most of them close to launch, they were bad then too. While the games may have been better than Atari 2600 (before my...

    Jumpin said: There were some horrid games from Nintendo's dev studios on the NES. Dozens of them. So even if the quality control went up in later years, you can't ignore the piles of shovel ware they used to release on their early systems.   on NES, for example: Urban Champion, Volleyball, Soccer, Baseball, Clu Clu Land, and Wrecking Crew all immediately come to mind.
