I played the game, it seems like a damn fine racer overall. I'll certainly pick it up when its around $30.

Is this supposed to start a fight or start a discussion?

You know what's sad, those USA sales are likely overtracked

It's a flop, no one can deny it and that especially goes for GT but it's definitely not some mega flop.

It will go on to sell at least 7 million lifetime. It may have had a weak start but it will have very long legs.

Had a bet with eFKac on whether or not Valve will be at Sony's E3: I lost.

How is it a flop? its a decline or maybe you can say disappointing! Flop imo is used to much and is a highly overrated word :-/

Haters ate some big ass crow after GT6's meta jumped from 75 to Forza 5's 81 so now they need more reasons to instigate a shitstorm?

Is anyone surprised? I've been saying for months this was going to happen. Only people interested in this story are people that are happy it flopped.

I think in terms of US sales, its going decent.  Losing 50 percent late in the gen is to be expected but I am sure Sony is still disapointed because this is their top selling franchise.   The Europe numbers are a disaster.  Losing 75 percent in your strongest territory is pushing mega-flop bad.  Either way Sonys 1st Party software last gen sold terribly and I dont see that changing anytime soon.  The Vita was built entirely on 1st party software and not only did the console sell poorly, but the software sales are at historically low levels.

Be smart.
No way did japan or na sale anywhere near as much as europe. Might want to hold of till legit numbers hit.

And no digital sales so how can anyone compare sales and declare success or not without them.
