The sales are undertracked, "like it or
not". They've yet to be updated. Not a
big issue, but it's there.

The fact that GT5 did not manage to
outsell its counterparts despite all the
bundles, rereleases and special editions
reveals something about the strength of
the franchise. GT6 numbers is just
confirming that trend, like it or not.

And stop calling the sales being
undertracked, at that point I don't
think 500k more copies sold would make
such a difference in the analysis.

Edit, make that three years apart
between releases, but my point stands.

Saying GT5 "failed" in outselling
counterparts is grasping at best,
particularly when we don't even know
what's it sold up to this point (again,
these numbers, like the ones on
Polyphony's site, are nearly two years

GT6 proves nothing,
except that Sony f-ed up on when they
released it. No franchise loses that
many players between releases,
especially just two years apart.

like I said, that side of the coin is
pointless to debate about until future

GT5 was the first
iteration of the series on a new
generation of console therefore you have
to compare it with GT and GT3. GT6 on
the other hand can be compared with GT2
and GT4. That said, both GT5 and GT6
failed in outselling their counterparts.
Based on GT5 and GT6 sales we can easily
see the franchise is going down. Maybe
GT7 will reverse this trend, who

I don't see the point in
waiting for GT7 (or GT8 while you're at
it) numbers before ''conceding'' the
sales dropped in comparison to GT games
of previous generations.
