Locked: Gran Turismo Sport debuts - another 1M opening

Forums - Sales Discussion - Gran Turismo Sport debuts - another 1M opening

retail only GTS barely scraped the 1M mark, but with likely 30% digital sales (it topped the charts for PS4) it opened at 1.3M.

This is a lot lower than previous GT but have managed to increase the million seller list of PS4.

I would assume "Sport" means just that in which it typically implies a "lite" version.

The game sucks but the brand name is still there.

That 30% is doubtful, retail pricing dropped fast and was unbelievably low in Europe.  Digital was nowhere near as good a deal.  

What did the other Gts debut at ? i only know GT5 managed crazy sales.

Remember this is week one sales.



LTD Sales Predictions: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m
2019 Sales : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m
2020 Sales: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

So only 14 out of every 1000 PS4 owners bought it the first week (1 million copies sold divided by 68 million PS4 owners = 1.4%)? That seems terrible for the best selling PlayStation franchise of all time. Hopefully they get it together for GT7.

Ohh yahh.  Still doubt it, it got weak reviews everywhere.

Not a game you want to risk buying digital.  

Personally i got a used copy 4 days after launch.

Seems like these numbers are hurting the haters feelings I love it!

And yeah I imagine it had good digital numbers as well. Buyers who were on the fence about getting it physical or digital may have ended up going for the latter because of the demo. Though I think it'll have some awful legs before the deals kick in.

The game is at its core undoubtedly excellent. But considering the price, content/options, and the time it took PD to develop, I'm personally disappointed with it. Might change my mind a couple of years from now.

Yeah, I'd prefer a proper GT7 with all the things the series is known for, including a full, robust single-player the likes of GT5.

We can expect that to be a launch PS5 exclusive or a cross gen title. Wouldn't mind it either way!
