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

I don't expect it to sell over 6 million lifetime. Which isn't good for a Gran Turismo game but still better than best selling racers out there (excluding Kart games)

Guys. It's not Daika-fucking-tana. It didn't bomb.

Hahaha, Daikatana! Now that was a bomb of nuclear proportions. I remember I was really hyped for that game when it was first announced too.

OT: Expected being at the end of the gen and just after the PS4 and X1 released. Just look at the difference between GT3 and GT4.



Just under half is better than I was expecting, and better than most other games could achieve.

No bomba.

I know a guy who's expectations for games are completely fucked because of Daikatana. xD

With only 204, 784 copies moved in its first week (compared to 424,737 for GT 5) it would seem that the GT 6 has not even managed to move half the copies of the previous entry in the series which was also released to a smaller userbase. Will we see a similar scenario in  N.A & the E.U? Thoughts?

Thoughts? Are we looking at comparable data here?

Where did you get 424,737 for GT5 from? It that a full week's worth of sales (7 days)? The sales data you linked to is for the week of Dec 2 to Dec 8, but GT6 wasn't released until Dec 5th, so we're looking at 3 days worth of sales.

Grade: C-
Show your work next time.

My bad, forgot to add that I used VG #'s for first week sales of GT5.

GT5 was released on a Thursday in Japan (November 25th,2010) and GT6 on a Thursday as well Dec 5th therefore, we are looking at the same time frame (not including EU and N.A). I would also say B, not C-!

So when a new game in a franchise opens up lower then its predecessor it's a bomb? Good to know. Then i'll have this tagged for later then. :)

That's what people said about 3D World atleast.

No need to wait, head on over to Nintendo forum where quite a few threads have been made about SM3DW being a failure when it only managed to sell 700,000 + (VG numbers) in it's first two weeks on a console that only has a little over 4 million users.

and Sony thought it was better to release GT6 on PS3 because of the larger user base......
