Forgive me if I'm wrong as I don't live in the US but Thursday was Thanksgiving right? Are the shops normally open that day? I assumed they closed. My point being that are these numbers not 2 days EMEAA and 1 day US/Japan or have I got that wrong?

That's a good point.  I know Wal-Mart is open, but closes pretty early.  Other than that, I think most retail stores are closed.  This means that those sales would be held off til Black Friday, which would have given GT5 a nice boost without that fact.  So yea, technically it's 2 days in EMEAA, and only 1 day in US/Japan.



Yup, most retailers are closed. Target only had employees come in and set up for blackfriday on thursday. Even with retailers open most people are spending the day with family or going to the store for last minute grocery shopping for dinner like turkeys, green beans, and stuffing.

LOL at michael 5 : pro vs con :

Cons

-Long 5 year wait, fans may have moved onto other franchises, on different consoles or may have just lost interest alltogether (BengaBenga, Michael-5) LOL

-No set release date, it may release "all of a sudden" for the more casual audience, or they might just not realize when it's released, and get other games this holiday season. LOL

-The gaming industry has changed in the past 5 years.  A lot of people have changed their gaming habbits and shifted towards FPS or third person shooters, as shown by the amount and popularity of FPS games. (damndl0ser) LOL

-Game Design Flaws: Other current gen simulations do not have these issues - Only cosmetic damage to most cars (paint scratch, penalties for large collisions), structural deformation limited to a small fraction of playable vehicles. Also some cars will be very expensive to get, collecting them may be close to impossible. Still No Porsche, Only 70 track variations, GT4 and Forza Motorsport 3 have more.(Cthulhu, Michael-5) LOL

-GT4 Prologue, (an essentially Japanese exclusive Prologue), sold 6.76% more units then GT5P in Japan in about 1/3rd the time (12 months vs 33 months). The hype for this game may be a lot weaker in Japan. Note: The game was released in europe a mere month before the release of GT4, so ignore GT4P sales in EMEAA. LOL

-When GT3 and GT5 were reveiled, they were "showcase" software for their respective consoles. However GT3 released early into the consoles lifetime, when the game still had the wow factor, and before other "showcase" games appeared. GT5 has been delayed so frequently, that wow factor has disappeared and other "showcase" games have been released in the meantime. (thx1139) I would also like to add, this is one reason why GT1 also was more successful. (Michael-5) LOL

-Segmentation of the (hard) core market this gen is greater than previous gens (ImJustBayuum) LOL

-No PS3 game has yet crossed the 10 million total, why will GT5 be different(Note: MW2 will likely get around 10 million lifetime sales)? GT games generally sell as well as the best selling console games (GT1 was 1st on PS1, GT2 was 3rd, GT3 was 2nd on the PS2, and GT4 was fifth). In order for GT5 to do as well as past GT games, it would have to get the same sales as MW2 at least. (Frieza, Michael-5) LOL

-Will most likely not be bundled as exensively as GT3 was in Americas, so even if it manages to sell well, it most likely will not surpass the 11 million barrier other GT games have not surpassed. LOL

was a good joke man



Time to Work !

GT5 wont outsell Black Ops (Ps3)

Thats pretty much confirmed... Only if they bundle the game next year and it need to be lucky to top Black Ops.

Black Ops 1st Week Ps3 : 4M , LF probably 10M

GT5 1st Week : 2.5 - , LT 7.5M probably.

Black Ops will outsell GT5 week in Week out after GT5 1st week.

Quote this.

gt5 2nd week isnt going to be as big as black ops 3rd week but it could be close and go both ways. but other then that after the holidays gt5 should outsell black ops every week. legs it will have.



Being in 3rd place never felt so good

20K normal sales = 60K PS3 sales for the week?

That's fisrt day (25) only, there are more 3 days of sales (26-28).

Plus the others GT5 bundles will sell too... the Titanium Blue is limited.

So 20k normal (plus) 60k Titanium Blue (plus) 20k other GT5 bundles = over 100k confirmed.

I believe.
