Forza is also on PC btw.

Horizon 3 was a sales success, looks like.

To me it always feels sketchy, if companies release numbers about how many people played a game as opposed to how many people actually bought it.



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

The thing is GT5 did not sell much more than GT4 and there is no point in counting the Prologue titles unless you want to spin the numbers in favor of GT5, thus why I consider the decline started somewhere between GT4 and GT5.

Yes there actually is a point to that. It shows that interests in GT5 were a lot higher than 4 despite PS3's smaller install base and the growing Xbox and Forza competition. More context helps putting things into perspective. GT5's decline is much more artifical than Mario Kart post Wii.

PS3 userbasse was much more higher than the PS2 one at the time of GT5 release so I don't think the userbase argument is in favor of GT5. GT4 and GT5 are in a statistical tie when it comes to their sales so I do not see the "higher interest" at all.

If we deduct gameshares and multiple profiles on the same consoles, I think it would be at 6 million copies sold, if not 7 million.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
