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 think it bombed by any means but from what I can tell GT/Forza/Every racing game except for Mario Kart sells the best in Europe. Personally I find the gameplay in them really bland, but if cars and racing are your thing then thats cool with me. I would'nt call this a flop yet, but lets see in the game has any legs.

Sony's been droppin' bombs lately.

Gran Turismo will still the best selling racing ip on console and 8 millions sales worldwide is a give.


Have a suspicious feeling it won't even come close to that, considering it's 50% opening in Japan and now 20% in the UK.

Yet will still out sell the last 2 forza games combined....Every second Gt game sells lower then the first of a gen.

Well there's a pipe dream if I ever heard one! I'd expect it to just pass Forza 4 sales at  best! (currently at 4.03mill)



 

It's possible considering he said the last 2 Forza games which is Horizon and F5. Horizon is only at 1.53M and F5 just came out. However, even if you wanted to use the "main installments" with F4's 4.03 and F5 might still work. If F5 doesn't get it's annual bundle next christmas then it's sales won't be at 4M. It might be then closer to 3M if that. Even then with GT legs, it's quite possible.

Yeah but counting Forza Horizon would be like saying Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles is a main game in the Final Fantasy series, it just isn't. If he's going by that and not 4 & 5 then it may be possible. I personally think Forza 5 will manage to reach clsoe to 5 mill (3 mill seems to low,imo) , only because it's the highest rated exclusive launch title for Xbone.

I agree with some of those points except the overall sales for F5. Imo, at this point highest rated really doesn't mean much if your not already a fan of the series. Hell, even Cod this year is a mid 70 meta score and that still sells to it's fan base. Most launch titles sales are pretty much inflated since there's not much more to play in the first few months. But in the case of X1 and PS4 for that matter there appears to be a good stream of releases coming in the first half of 2014 to garner attention away from launch titles.

Also, this is not a bomb.  It isn't selling as well as GT 5 but still far from bomb status.

I don't believe it was necessary to point once again that Sony games don't sell on Sony systems, as Rol has been stating. Or do I need?

Gran Turismo is the exception.

...At least it used to be.

As proven by this thread the demand is there.

The game won't pass 5M I said in a topic 2-3 days ago, I'm sure I'll be right unfortunately !

Lol some people said the same thing for Gran Turismo 5



PS4 - over 100 millions let's say 120m
Xbox One - 70m
Wii U - 25m

Vita - 15m if it will not get Final Fantasy Kingdoms Heart and Monster Hunter 20m otherwise
3DS - 80m

Japan and Uk are not country where Gran Turismo is the most popular i believe it will do good in Usa and the rest of Europe

Yes, an absolute flop. I love the vast amounts of high aptitude and logic in this thread.
Essentially the general consensus is split with one side saying "oh 300,000 copies sold in 5 days in 2 big regions, it's a flop",
while the other side "not a flop, give it more time".

I'm pretty sure over its lifetime the game will be easily profitable and sell around 1 million by the end of December.

Though I guess its more or less a trend on the site, that if the game doesn't hit 1 million sales in the first 5 days it's a failure.



I like my PS, but its the same game as gt5 so lol yeah it boooomb
