Well, then the same goes for GT and Halo1/2



But they were only Xbox games, it was a small userbase compared to the PS1/2.

GT3 launched when PS2 had a really small userbase. Anyway, userbase does not always matter...look at the MGS games for example, Motorstorm, Resistance and so on...



GT3 was B.U.N.D.L.E.D thats why it sold like it did if it hadnt it probably would have sold the same as GT4, things like Motorstorm and Resistance are gonna sell much better than their sequels, they were launch titles and there was hardly anything out worth getting for the PS3 for months thats why they sold well. Same goes for Halo 1 however sales increased for its sequel unlike Resistance 2.

MGS4 was also bundled, its sold 5 million, MGS3 sold 4 million it also has subsistence which sold 0.5 million so its not miles behind. And MGS3 came out the same time as GTA San Andreas and Halo 2 which is why it didnt sell as well as MGS2.

It doesnt always matter but theyve sold like 4x as many PS2s as Xbox.

So many excuses that don't make sense. Most big games are bundled to some degree, Halo 3 was bundled too you know.

 

Why would Halo 2 have any effect on MGS3 sales? And MGS4 came out around the same time GTAIV launched...The fact that MGS3 is even "not miles behind" says alot!

 

Anyway, enough of this for today. See you in a few years when GT5 has topped your prediction :P



Halo 3 was barely bundled at all unlike GT3.

Halo 2 coming out took away attention from MGS3, all you heard about that month was Halo 2, MGS3 was just in the shadows, it didnt have the attention of the previous games.

Again MGS4 had the bundle thats why it did better than normal, it was also the first big name PS3 exclusive to come out and only the second big name game to come out thats why it sold so well, due to lack of competition from the PS3 libary.

Its not that MGS4s sales were surprisingly good its just that MGS3's were a disappointment.



LOL @ the excuses and GT5 hasn't even released!!

God VGC is gonna crash with all the crow serving come GT5 release day.

The odds of it doing under 7 million are 10x greater than it doing over 15 million.


The odds of doing over 7 million are 1000000x times greater than doing under 7 million

Yeah because so many games passed 7 million on PS3, oh wait theres just the measly one. The most anticipated game of all time GTA4 after 2 and a half years hasnt done it aswell as the other thousands, even on Xbox only 4 games have sold over that a GTA, a Halo and a COD game all more popular than a GT game.

But thats not what i said anyway because there is a chance it can sell under 7 million copies, the game may not be recieved all that well like GT PSP which everyone thought would do well. However it is impossible for it to pass 15 million.


Yeah, because every game on PS3 is big like Gran Turismo franchise. And you really must be living in clouds when you think that Halo is more popular than Gran Turismo

Halo 3 has sold 11.2 million copies more than 3 of the 4 Gran Turismo games and GT3 only sold 14 million because it was heavily bundled in US (though Halo 3's US sales still beat it) if it wasnt Halo 3 would have surpassed that in sales aswell easily.

Halo Reach just sold 4 million week 1, theres no way Gran Turismo 5 is doing that. Halo Reach will outsell GT5.

Halo 2 sold 8.4 million copies excluding PC on Xbox, GT4 sold 10.6 million copies on PS2 which had 3x the userbase, if Halo 2 was available to as many people as GT4 was its have easily have outsold it.

People brag about GT Prologue selling 4 million copies the crappy Halo ODST "expansion pack" has nearly sold 6 million copies. If Halo was as popular in Europe as US its be doubling GTs sales.




What about people doubting Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, or God of War 3 ? Both God of War 3 and Metal Gear Solid 4 are outselling their previous iterations while on a smaller userbase. I agree that GT5 selling 15 Million is unlikely but it's not impossible. As for the bolded, it could be an advantage for GT aswell.

MGS4 isn't outselling MGS2, and it never will.  MGS3 was the 2nd MGS on PS2 (and it also likely had some simmering resentment over MGS2 controversial decisions), it's really not the one you should be comparing to.

People do the same thing with FFXII and FFXIII (when FFX should be the point for comparison).  They did it last gen too, comparing FFX to FFIX rather than FFVII, despite the fact that Square expected FFX to match FFVII sales (10m).
