3 Years ago GRAN TURISMO 5 finally released after years of anticipation by the gaming community.

A sales prediction thread was made on VgChartz & now as we near GT6's launch we can actually see how we got on!

http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=114292&page=1

First of all APOLOGIES for the terrible quality of the images...they weren't that bad in 2010, I don't think. I hope witnesses can attest to that :P (psst Boutros I can count on your, right?)

WEEK 1 PREDICTIONS:

Ultimately GT5 sold 2.39 Million week 1

As a community we "overtracked" it by a mere 170K...that is within a 10% margin of error.

So...WELL DONE VGCHARTZ...you win THIS

Special congratulations are in order to the following users (Top 3 predictions):

1. Gilgamesh, Flagstaad, OkeyDokey, {dude who's name I can't see due to the bad picture quality}  - 2.4 Million

2. HexenLord - 2.42 Million

3. Kopstudent (2.43 Million), zgamer5 {Now known as areason} (2.35 Million)

 

LTD PRedictions

So GT5 is now at 10..61 Million & undoubtedly it will keep on selling.

As a community we predicted 9.34 Million which whas already fallen short by over a million, so yeah GT5 pretty much drove right over our prediction!! So this is our prize!

So I'll make this easy and just list the users left in the running for closest to the final LTD (which we may not know for a year or more yet!)

17 posters are still in the running:

HexenLord - 10.7 Million

Ultraslick - 10.8 Million

VXIII - 11 Million

Carl2291 - 11.1 Million

snfr, irtz - 11.2 Million

Attoyou - 11.5 Million

chapset - 11.8 Million

BHR-3 - 11.9 Million

Jneul - 12 Million

PostOfficeBuddy - 12.1 Million

M.U.G.E.N, Soild_Snake4RD, AnthonyW86 - 12.2 Million

VetteDude - 12.4 Million

extremeloco - 12.6 Million

Vetteman94 - 12.8 Million

**Interesting tidbit** -- Only ONE of the best 1st week predictors is still in contending (HexenLord)...and unfortunately he'll be eliminated soon as there's no way GT5 aint getting past 10.7 Million!!

I wish I had been more specific in my prediction. I can only find the link to where I said "over 10 million".

However, that was in a thread where most people were predicting lower numbers.



lol at the 3 million life time prediction

Yeah I remember a thread where the main post was saying how it'll underperform & it was full of lower predictions!

I confirm this 



Being in 3rd place never felt so good

I did pretty well! Darth asked me to give a victory speech so here it goes:

I dedicate this to Darth who's three year hiatus has left a hole in all our hearts *sheds single tear while holding back the rest*.

I also dedicate this award to the humble people working on the VGChartz numbers, without all of you we would've never had the opportunity to make these predictions and allow us victors to rub it in the losers' faces. Thank you all.

*awaits applause*
