Forums - Sony Discussion - Does sony have a franchise that will sell the PS4 out of the gate

Before I get any more comments saying Gran Turismo is a 10m+ seller, I had orriginally forgot about GT.  That was my answer so no need to talk about it anymore.  There is plenty of information, debates, and good conversations in this thread though so you can talk about them if you want to.

Everybody wants to predict how well the PS4/ NeXbox and the WiiU will sell, however people has left out important info on why they think each will sell well.  So here is my question, what does Sony have that will make the PS4 sell well.  Microsoft has Halo and Gears which are both system sellers to a mass amount of people and on top of that the XBOX brand is higher than ever in America, as well as Nintendo having Mario, DK, Zelda, and this list never ends.  Sony has a ton of franchises but does any of them really have that mass appeal that people will just blindly go in and buy the system right off of the bat for a high price?  The three biggest franchises that they have is Uncharted ,God of War, and Gran Turismo, but are they big enough?  

Explain your answers and try not argueing.

Gran Turismo, God of War and Uncharted. Also new IPs could add to that list.



(And Gran Turismo)

To answer the question, no probably not.  But as many of have been speculating around here lately, some combination of Uncharted / Killzone / Gran Turismo + a new IP or two at or around launch could well convince people to take the plunge.



Uhm...Gran Turismo?? Uncharted. God of War. FIFA.

The big sellers are Gran Turismo and Uncharted. I doubt GT will be a launch game, I think there's a good chance of Uncharted 4 being a launch title. And I guess you could throw Killzone and Little big planet into the mix.

Serious question.  Uncharted and God of War are both possibly ending and neither one are 10 million + sellers.  Which leaves it up to gran turismo.

i wasnt laughing at the suggesting that the IPs are system sellers or not. i was laughing that you said the TWO biggest franchises... etc etc and then said three franchises :P



I'm no Sony expert, but Uncharted, GoW, LBP GT and perhaps KZ should be able to push quite a few units. Together they should be better system sellers than Halo and GeoW... And there's no way x3ox will have either of Halo or GeoW at launch (and no Fable either). So I would think that Sony is in a better position than Microsoft regarding 1st party system sellers for 2013.

I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.
