Range is too shallow in the poll, should have options for 2 and 3 million.

Forza is just more entertaining for some than GT, the fact we haven't had a GT this gen makes it all the more natural to think the franchise is better till proven otherwise.  There is no GT game released that is better than Forza 3 at the moment, GT5 should rectify that.


LOL!!! GT5 isn't going to sell 2-3 million it's first week. You do know this right? GT Prologue has just over 3 million lifetime. GT5 should easily beat Forza 3 in sales it's first week, as well as lifetime. There has always been more GT fans mainly because of Japan and U.K. markets which have always favored GT over Forza. The Japan market is really GT's edge though. Forza doesn't sell well in Japan simply because Japan gamers aren't into American game consoles or games. The real comparison is can GT5 outsell Forza 3 in the American market overall. At least in American both games are loved. I think GT5 will sell between 500K - 600K it's first week. Lifetime should be between  5 - 6 million. I've been wrong before though.


And you'll likely be wrong again. 

IT doesn't matter what I think as I didn't make a prediction, others I know would want to vote for 2-3 million and hence the option should be there.  I personally think you're smoking crack if you don't think GT5 has a chance at breaking 2 million first week, it's easily the most anticipated game this generation on the PS3.

It will more than 1,500,000 in Europe alone. , 3m first week.


I think so aswell, It will easily sell over 500,000 in Americas. Try about 2.5-3.5 million first week at worst. The attach ratio for this game is going to be 75% in Europe as some of you are expecting. it is ridiculous thaat people think otherwise.

Hmmmm...... i agree with both of you.

Wait do you think GT5 could have an opening week of 3.5 million at worst? 0_o

OT:  I believe GT5 will open up with about 2.4 million (x12) for its first week so your poll is a way to shallow.

Over x8 (over 2,000,000) IMO.



OT: GT5 will do 3 million first week.

Gt5 sales LTD >= Forza 1 &   Forza 2 & Forza 3 (1.07 & 4.02 & 3.05(at this moment))


GT5 isn't going to sell 8 million copies lifetime. This isn't the PS2 which had over 130 million consoles sold.


explain how MGS4 outsold MGS3? And god of war 3 is on its way to outsell god of war 1 and 2?

If he thinks only 5 to 6 million full lifetime he's going to be wrong multiple ways regarding GT5.  It'll almost certainly sell better than that looking at GT5:P sales on disk alone (and given it sold more than that thanks to PSN version).

Funny how some people can't see past their own preferences to what's looking very probable.  I'm not really a big GT fan personally, but it's pretty obvious that it'll have a strong launch (if sub something like MW or Halo) and that it will have long legs that will easily take it to a very high final tally.



Try to be reasonable... its easier than you think...

This thread is really obnoxious.

360 fans could make a similar thread every time the PS3 gets an exclusive shooter.


I agree. Someone make a Killzone 3 vs Halo:Reach thread.


Like we've never seen that before.
