Naaahhh. This isn't a full typical GT release. Plus, I don't think the racing genre is all that healthy anymore.

I doubt this one. Id like to be proven wrong though. I know a lot of GT purists that arent interested in this one due to the online focus.

GREAT 



I don't get why people use the excuse that these sales will only be possible if GTS is bundled, and act like that is some kind of asterisk. If anything, that's more significant for Sony, because it's getting a console into somebody's house and more chance to make money on other games instead of profiting on just the initial game sale. Bundles are made for a reason, and when a game like Gran Turismo is used, it sells like hotcakes. That's still brand strength.

BTW, come Christmas, I will be getting a second PS4 just for this game, because I gave my brother and his son my old PS4 (begrudgingly, but I had to focus on a new job, lol). And yes, I will be getting the GTS bundle just like I got the GT3 bundle for PS2.

Forza Horizon 3 already sold 2.5 million by the end of 2016, you are obviously forgetting about digital sales.

Forza died? Last I checked the FH3 still makes it on the best selling game of the month of September in the UK... ONE YEAR AFTER RELEASE!!!

Maybe these "poor" X1 sales are probably because some are waiting for the Xbox One X? 

Why do you defend Xbox  every single thread?

Why do you have an irrelevant question?



Germany's X1 lifetime sales end of 2015: 600,000.

France's X1 lifetime sales end of 2015: 715,000.

Yes that is a bold prediction, me likes it.

A victim of TheDrill astute manipulations and fiercefull defense of X1.

That is true, perhaps better wording would be "by far the highest selling GT game ever"

Though to be honest my 13 million prediction included digital and physical, but now I see I would need to estimate and add Forza's digital sales for each title, add them up and then insert them into the thread if I wanted to stick to that. So yes 13 million physical.

you got me

I'm very doubtfull it will reach Gran Turismo 3 Sales. GT3 was a groundbreaking title for the time and it didn't have any real competition on any system.

GTS o the other hand is just an incremental upgrade over previous titles, also the concept of a racing sim with a huge variety of real cars is quite common nowdays and there are more avaliable options for that audience. I'm expecting sales more in line with GT5.

Sales in line with GT5 would be 12M, it would be a lot and still make the prediction of OP right.

Doubt it, I think critics might crucify this game.

Critics and people in general weren't too nice with GT5 yet the game sold 11 millions. By crucify, are you expecting sub 70 metacritic or something?

Actually sold 12M =] And I love it despise the "professional critics"... the girl that gave it a 4 because she doesn't understand the point of racing - going in circles.

As if all Forza games haven't been bundled to death as well.

In the GT cases (can't say about Forza because I don't play close attention to MS) all bundles released had other options on the market at the same time, so people choose to buy GT bundle so I would say that it's much more GT selling consoles than consoles selling GT situation on those bundles...

Nah, GT:S is very different to most GT games and it will sell less because of it.

Azzanation - "I am starting to really doubt UC4 will outsell Gears 4 let alone Halo 5. Those claiming 10m? Haha okay that was an obvious no before release. It probably won’t do past 6m lifetime."

Uncharted 4 Sales - 11-12m? (Last official: 8.7m Dec 21st 2016)

Azzanation - "like most Sony consoles, they will keep selling the machines for 10 years and claim how good there consoles sell."

This is not to downplay Forza Horizon 3's sales but I agree that it's odd to point out that GT games are bundled a lot and then ignore that it's difficult to buy an Xbox One S in Europe where Forza Horizon 3 isn't included.

For instance, we have UK where Forza Horizon 3 has very healthy numbers. Amazon UK offers 15 different Xbox One S bundles and 10 of these include Forza. Of the 5 bundles without Forza, only 1 is sold directly by Amazon.

Xbox One S 500GB + Forza Horizon 3
Xbox One S 500GB + Forza Horizon 3 + Hot Wheels DLC
Xbox One S 500GB + Forza Horizon 3 + Fifa 18
Xbox One S 500GB + Forza Horizon 3 + Fifa 18 + Overwatch
Xbox One S 500GB + Forza Horizon 3 + Destiny 2
Xbox One S 500GB + Battlefield 1
Xbox One S 500GB + Minecraft
Xbox One S 1000GB + Forza Horizon 3
Xbox One S 1000GB + Forza Horizon 3 + Halo Wars 2
Xbox One S 1000GB + Forza Horizon 3 + Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Xbox One S 1000GB + Forza Horizon 3 + 2nd controller
Xbox One S 1000GB + Forza Motorsport 6

Xbox One S 1000GB + Gears of War 4
Xbox One S 1000GB + Gears of War 4 + Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Xbox One S 1000GB + Fifa 17

 

OT: I'll happily be proven wrong but I don't think GTS will manage 13 mill physical sales. Probably closer to GT5 Prologue's 5.4 mill. Gran Turismo 7 will probably do around 10 mill unless it releases as a PS4 exclusive AFTER the launch of PS5  -___-

I do not see it. Content wise GT Sport does not compare to a main GT game so you will have a lot of people pretty much taking a pass on that alone. It's a more focused project and isn't even designed to sell to a more mass market like GT main games do. It would be a good effort if the game reachs 5 mill in its lifetime.
