GT5 sells 1.8m in two days WW

Forums - Sales Discussion - GT5 sells 1.8m in two days WW

Good sales for a good game. Will be interesting to see the Track article on monday. I think that will give us an indication of how acurate these numbers are as i think UK is  the biggest racing game market in Europe right?

Solid opening for GT5 then. But it will be interesting in the coming weeks to see how it drops off. That will give us a better idea of the type of legs we can see from it. GT4 sold almost 50% of it's entire sales in the first month (4.4m). And that was not even in a holiday period. This time round GT5 has the holiday period to sell to. If it hasen't reached at least 4.4m by jan 1st then i think it will struggle to get to the 10m mark. I think most peoples view of around 8m lifetime could be quite likely.

SIMPLY AMAZING SALES, THE HATERS WILL NOT BE HAPPY NOW, BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT THE RACING GENRE DIED ALREADY

PS I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND ALL THE PEOPLE CALLING THIS OK, THAT IT NEARLY OUTSOLD FORZA 3 IN JUST TWO DAYS ALONE, FORZA 3 IS AT AROUND 3.3M


OOh dear.., please.., don't do that....(T_T), just celebrate it in every way you like to.., but not that one please...(seriously)

Another one from jneul

COMPARING IT TO HALO SALES ARE RETARDED AND SHOULD BE COMPARING IT TO A GAME IN THE SAME GENRE LIKE FORZA, WHICH GT5 WILL EASILY OUTSELL GOING ON FROM HERE, GT5 WILL ALSO OUTSELL HALO AS WELL IT'S MY NEXT PREDICTION

o_o quoting my quotes from other sites, so not cool bro, ppl don't want us to compare gt5 and forza sales??

yes you can, but that way seems so bashing oriented.., we all already know that forza don't sell much.., so no need to compare it anymore....

Circuit de la Sarthe ....



As I said in the article.

For a game that has had minimal advertisement in it's biggest region... This is amazing.



This is the best simulation racing game ever to be created, So my guess it will hold on to sell 8-10 M world wide

Halo sales can be approched , maybe not topped, But call of duty is this generation sensation so no other game will manage it.

Keep in mind that car racing games don't sell as good as they used to



This is my sole post in any thread regarding Gran Turismo 5:  Good job, Sony/Polyphony!!

why did you make it so obvious that it was you? so not professional, I have 68 different accounts on some other 29 forums and no one knows who I really am, I got paid to do this shit and I do it good.

anyway good numbers, I was expecting around 2m first week and thought that was quite optmistic, its going to be interesting to see how it sells through december.
