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.
