Could GT5 the lowest selling GT game?

Forums - Sony Discussion - Could GT5 the lowest selling GT game?

It could be, also GT3 numbers are highly inflated due to massive bundling. GT5 still should easily sell over 6 million copies and with the help of bundles it could sell over 8 million copies.

That doesn't explain the 10mill+ all of the other ones sold though.

This is the funniest thing I have ever seen.

Are you all really saying it's possible that GT5 will sell less than 1.36 million?

Infact, some gran turismo games sold so little they werent even tracked.

Responding to the question that the OP thought he was asking, which is "Could GT5 sell less than GT2, GT3, GT4 and GT (the Playstation version not the PSP version). Then it is indeed possible. 9.38 million should be doable though, if well advertised. So I guess no

GT5 could end up selling over 10 million copies but their are a lot of other choices when it comes to racing games now.  Also so far no PS3 game has sold over 8 million copies yet that's why my numbers might seen a bit low I don't want to go out on a limb.

Well considering its highly unlikely that they would do the same to me if I turn out to be right hek I doubt they will even show their faces, I dont know we'll see but I will definitly not disappear like nothing happened which is what this ppl typically do after they get owned because of their big mouths you can count on that.

7.5 million without heavy bundeling.



Halo MCC will sell 5+ million copies(including digital)

halo 5 will sell 10 million copies(including digital)

x1 will pass ps4 in USA, and UK.

GT5 won't pass 5-6mln LT sales and it's pretty obvious why.

Why?

let's start with the fact that we can't list Prologue as example of future GT5 sales

- it was the first racing game on ps3 except crappy F1 game, Ridge Racer(and those are very niche titles plus ps3 launch games) and very average Motorstorm,

- it was budget game,

- it had no competition for what 4-5 months before release and something like 4-6 months after launch,

now

- past GT games success was because casual gamers,

- there wasn't any awareness of competition(especially during psx life and early ps2 era),

- you could pretty much get either NFS, Ridge Racer or GT game in the past,

- ps3 doesn't have diversity if we're talking about audience(it's all about shooters and action games now),

- with exception of first Motorstorm(which sales come mostly from bundles and sequel flopped hard compared to original), last 3 NFS games, Midnight Club, Burnout Paradise and Grid nothing really sold well on ps3 if we're talking about racing title,

- most racing sim fans already chose their console and series to follow - that's Forza, just look at the sales of Forza 1 and 2 on simillar userbase.

Forza 1 sold 1mln copies, 

Forza 2 sold 4mln copies,

Forza 3 sold 2.3mln copies in first 24 weeks - more than 80% better than Forza 2 in first 24 weeks.

- there's too much competition and people gone away from games like GT to open world and arcade racers,

- people are tired of waiting and already bought 360 because of Forza series or other racing games,

- demo gave really bad impression of full version GT5 and Prologue showed that Polyphony is far behind developers like Turn10,

- there will be released 5-6 high profile racing games before GT5(if it comes this year of course),
