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%). 

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.

Thought GT5 was available digitally my bad.

This isn't fairy tale dream land where a game that "BOMBS" magically sells an astonishing amount of digital copies at $59.99. You clearly have no clue what you are talking about and your fanboyism is blinding you! Please for a moment, take off the rose coloured glasses. Bad weather affects reail however, I highly doubt there was this significant number of people waiting that day  going "oh no bad weather, guess i'll go download". I mean, even assuming that is completely illogical. 

Also please provide links to where exactly these winter storms were occuring during that weekend. Seems like all the other games released from what the figures show, still managed reasonable sales.

The reason is simple. PS4. They made a HUGE mistake not making this game a PS4 launch title.

Exactly! Quality could have been the same but because PS4 is the most hyped console, sales would not have been pathetic in the manner that they are.

It must be a fairy tale to you, casue to know something bombed you first need to know its numbers.

And none here do.  Only legit numbers we know are Japan and thats disk only no digital, vg numbers are miss quite often and holidays sales make it even harder for them to guesstamate.  

Ill be some time before real ww numbers are known.  

Maybe research shit out your self, actually know wtf you are posting about.

We have a clear indication of the numbers. Actually if anything, VG numbers are probably a little too high for the U.S (I suspect it's lower). 

I did my research, as the previous comments indicate but it doesn't seem that you can read very clearly.Your just commenting out of pure blind fanboyism. Did you not read the countless articles of GT6 selling 1/5th of the previous game in the UK?. We'll have theglobal numbers in the next few days, which will indicate that I was right.

Please be thorough in your own research before taking out of your ass. Good day.

Had to requote this, did you see the latest numbers....Did yah :P :P :P ?

http://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/41616/Europe/

Seems like the whole EU was only 24% of first week sales for GT5 (GT5 first week 1.03mill vs GT6 245k  of previous GT sales!)

Add that to N.A (240k) and Japan (200K) that's only 685K, quite the fall compared to GT5's 2.38 mill opening week. I believe that means GT6 has only opened up to 29% of GT5's opening weekend. 

Can you say BOMB!!!!!!

lol vgc numbers, lmao vgc Euro numbers.

Especially if they say Na sold as much as Europe, thats a joke and then some.  And the biggest LMFAO is Japan selling as much as Europe, biggest give away vg numbers are way of as they tend to be.  Japan numbers are legit, ill take ndp to get real NA numbers.

In Europe GT5 did double NA sales,  yet GT6 is even across NA Europe and  Japan.  
Biggest indecator the numbers are a pure guess, no way in hell did Japan or NA match European sales.

You shouldn't laugh. VGC numbers had a trend of being of being overtracked lately, so figuratively speaking, it could be much lower!

Also, as I asked you earlier, are you completely ignoring the fact that it sold 1/5 in the UK? This has been cofirmed through numerous articles you do realize?
UK usually represents the largest sales amongst the EU countries or did you forget?

You seem to really be pushing "bomb" despite the fact that  we don't know the full/real numbers yet. That, and even if the current numbers (and your estimate for Japan) were correct that's still certainly no "bomb". It's also important to remember that GT5 came out on a wednesday while GT6 came out on a friday.

 

Ooooh btw, I wouldn't really trust the numbers yet.

USA pre-orders- 243,968

USA week one sales-240,550

You really think they sold LESS copies than the pre-orders? hahahaha!



Bet with Adamblaziken:

I bet that on launch the Nintendo Switch will have no built in in-game voice chat. He bets that it will. The winner gets six months of avatar control over the other user.

Biggest flop of the year? When I said it earlier this year tons of times everyone was laughing at me until they converted my beliefs to think it would be a huge hit along with VGC pre orders which was historically off. Releasing it for the PS3 at this time (they should have just waited a year and release it on the PS4)...would have had much more sales.
