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. :)


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.

Ahh so this is your revenge thread then?  Now I get it, carry on.

every second GT game in the generation sells less than its predecessor.
So no, GT6 is not a flop.



Can only see this doing about 3-4 million.

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-!

Thanks for clarifying. Looks like we're looking at the same time frame, but the data for GT6 is not a complete week yet. Guess we'll find out soon.

If you make as stupid of a decision as Sony did regarding GT6 release, you deserve the sales you get.



So it is happening...PS4 preorder.

Greatness Awaits!

Well, we know what this means.........








GRAN TURISMO 6 DEFINITIVE EDITION for PLAYSTATION 4

Coming 2014...............................................................

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?

Im glad that GT6 bombed! Actually it should be called GT5.1 + microtransactions. Same tracks, same cars, same graphics, same sounds. They should release it year later on PS4 with a good physics (a driving simulator without realistic car destructions is not a simualtor).

While you are right in the aspect of predecessor sales, no GT games has been forcasted to only move 50% of the previous game. The lowest  (if we go by VGC #'s ) was from GT3- GT4 which was still 78% of it's predecessors sales.
