Final Update! GT6 Global Bombs (N.A, EU and Japan)!! 34% of GT5 Opening Week

Forums - Sony Discussion - Final Update! GT6 Global Bombs (N.A, EU and Japan)!! 34% of GT5 Opening Week

This thread is hilarious. Does GT6 even have an official bundle? Also ignore digital sales because we all know its gained steam more since GT5 launch.

Yeah, new GT6 + TLoU bundle, will probably sell for a long time which will help both games legs.



GT6 will do fine , no bomb
also luckily polyphony updates the sales numbers on their website so well know the correct sales



This website has now gone completely insane.

A game which is well on its way to 3m+ is a bomb. Flooring.

Biggest flop of the year? When I said it earlier this year tons of times everyone was laughing at me until they converted my beliefs to think it would be a huge hit along with VGC pre orders which was historically off. Releasing it for the PS3 at this time (they should have just waited a year and release it on the PS4)...would have had much more sales.

Relatively? Probably yes, unless CoD: Ghost dropped over 67% below CoD: BO2? Although nothing was a bigger flop than Fuse this year.

It's weird seeing Sony's top 2 biggest franchises have new games release this year and they both reviewed in the low 80s and sold much worse than their predecessors, although out of the two at least GoW has the excuse of being just a prequel and more focused on MP.

Week 1:

GoW:A = 700k vs GoW III = 1.4m (-50%)

GT6 = ~790K (685k + ~15% others) vs GT5 = 2.4m. (-67%)

 

I hope both come back with a bang on PS4, I want GT7 to recapture my lost love for the series and GoW4 to focus on what made the trilogy masterpieces and not let MP degrade it. They are the only Sony franchises to have games that have passed 6m without mass bundling so they have to be handeled more carefully from now on.

It must be a fairy tale to you, casue to know something bombed you first need to know its numbers.


Had to requote this, did you see the latest numbers....Did yah :P :P :P ?

http://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/41616/Europe/

Seems like the whole EU was only 24% of first week sales for GT5 (GT5 first week 1.03mill vs GT6 245k  of previous GT sales!)

Add that to N.A (240k) and Japan (200K) that's only 685K, quite the fall compared to GT5's 2.38 mill opening week. I believe that means GT6 has only opened up to 29% of GT5's opening weekend. 

Can you say BOMB!!!!!!


You seem to really be pushing "bomb" despite the fact that  we don't know the full/real numbers yet. That, and even if the current numbers (and your estimate for Japan) were correct that's still certainly no "bomb". It's also important to remember that GT5 came out on a wednesday while GT6 came out on a friday.

 

Ooooh btw, I wouldn't really trust the numbers yet.

USA pre-orders- 243,968

USA week one sales-240,550

You really think they sold LESS copies than the pre-orders? hahahaha!

No, I beleive the preorders were innacurate.

SMW3D came out on a Friday as well and with the sales it did on a console of only 4 Million (now in the ballapark of 4.5) it was an apparent bomb so therefore GT6 must be a bomb as well!. Read my posts through the whole thread and you'll understand what I'm doing!

Trolling?  You have no evidence to support that the pre-orders were wrong but the sales are right. You just want that to be the case.



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

Saw this coming.

GT5 did damage to the GT brand especially amongst the casual audience. GT6 is simply way to similar.

I hope this pushes Kaz into making some bigger changes in GT7..In fact they should drop the number and just make it Gran Turismo.

So it's got nothing to do with the fact a lot of people have bought the PS4! I live and learn on this site.



 

The PS5 Exists. 


Name a Wii or Xbox 360 exclusive that debuted to higher sales this year?

Please Watch/Share this video so it gets shown in Hollywood.

Any chance of seeing this in the ps plus instant game collection? I mean there were talks of GT7 not being too far away.
