Didn't Gran Turismo 4 sell less than Gran Turismo 3?

In otherwords... wasn't this expected?


It did and I'm sure to a certain extent lower sales were expected but I don't believe anyone thought that we would be seeing under 50% sales in U.S/Japan and 20% in the UK.

Seems like GT6 could not even manage to reach 50% of GT5's opening week in U.S. Starting to think some of the 3-4 mill predictions may have been not as far fetched as others were claiming

Seems most dont get the concept of Online sales, something GT5 lacked.

Add the fact GT6 had half the shelf time in its first week compared to GT5

only the Uk sales are a big wtf.

It had equal shelf time in Japan. N.A was a 2 day difference. As for online sales, well have to wait and see what #'s are released later in the year. It is definately wishful thinking if you beleive that they will contribute anything significant to sales like they with GT5p. It seems  the majority simply are not interested in this game this time around.

Its not like anyone is using another games online sales to guesstamate anything, so why wouldnt psn sales contribute significantly if the GF fan base has already proven they will buy download only.

Well, you pointed out earlier the digital sales of GT5p and were using it to justify the possibilty that GT6 might have strong digital sales. Like I stated, there was significant digital sales due to the "size" of the game. With GT6 at 15gigs along with  band with caps that have been implemented over the past few years in N.A countries (not sure of other continents) it's less likely that digital sales will contribute anything significant.

Dont you think ur grasping at straws with that, 15 gigs really is nothing.  If it was 50 yahh that be a bit of a bitch to downlaod and store.  I got overpriced capped net but even on it 15 is not much, what type of crap net are you on.  

Given more and more people are used to owning digital then back in gt5p days and the facts it launched during winter storms id expect nothing less then greater digital sales share then GT5p. The convenience factor of not having to go out and buy it and no screwing around with disks, it plays on peoples lazyness.

You do make a interesting point though, UKs cheep internet could be a reason many they are choosing digital and would explain the large difference between GT5 and GT6 disk sales.  Japan does have best net in the world, and we all know Europe is GT land not NA.  And NA has had no advertising comapred to Gt5 which got serious airtime before dropping.  

Once PD releases their numbers it will be fun to comapre to Vg, im sure ndp numbers for dec and GT6 will be interesting also.

Grasping at straws!!! LMAO!! Your the one who was trying to blame winters storms for poor sales and seem to have this pipe dream that magically, digital sales are going to contribute a significant amount to a low selling game. There is absolutely no logic to it. Please advise where the figures are for Gran Turismo 5??? (full game not prologue).Had there been the signifant amount of digital sales like there was with prologue, would the data have not been released?  15 gigs is significant for most people. A lot of caps start from 50gb and go upwards of 250gb. My ISP does not cap you until you get into the higher tiered  services 50-250mb(i'm sitting at 20mb for the time being).

I'm willing to bet that when NPD numbers are released, Vg will have overtracked GT6 for N.A. I am also willing to bet that PD will not release digital sales figures for GT6 because the fact of the matter is, it's not going to contribute anything significant (Probably around 5-7%).

Not a bomb, but lower than expected for most people. Nintendo fans know about this kind of phenomenon with franchises like Zelda dropping in sales later in a generation.



Not as horrible as I was expecting. I'm more interested in how it will perform in the other European countries since most of GT5s sales came from Europe.

lmao

You want logic.

GT5 no digital version, DISK ONLY.  GT6 yes available on PSN.  

Next time can you educate yourself on the matter before posting bs.  Do you comprehand the significence of it when comapring sales between GT5 and GT6? 

Any one with half a brain knows how negativly weather can affects retail, im sure some one here worked in stores and can tell you.  And i know it did going by plenty on Gtplanet changing to digital over disk due to winter storms in their area.  Surprisingly a lot of them went digital over disk from day one, or maybe not digital sales are rather good on PC.  Natural progression.
