Anytime you walk into the comments section of a VGChartz article and notice that there is a "Comments below voting threshold," it's probably unsurprisingly Azzanation.

Bit of a slow start, but I think this is game is going to have the best legs SIEWWS has ever seen. Bring on the updates for Indy, F1, Nascar, NHRA, Off Road Racing, Pikes Peaks Hill Climb, and much, much more, and the legitimate Virtual Racing simulator should find its way to the top of the GT heap all said and done.

I think we will see a decent uptick in sales once the official FIA championship starts, and even more once the winners earn their prizes, money, and notoriety.

Great work PD. Has anyone compared how GT sells compared to Xbox's top racing game? Is Forza still selling? I believe GT came out 2 weeks after the latest Forza. Hey VGC how about some controversial charts comparing similar games and how their sales compare? It might increase taffric 😜 GT vs Forza or Uncharted Vs Tomb Raider etc, etc.

Not much compared to other gt games, although with digital it might be around 3.5 million. I think they expected much much more

This week of November 25th the price drop had just happened. Until today they’re easily at 4 million, including digital, already. Outselling GT6 for the same timeframe and the career update had not happened at that date..this game will have legs for years with the constant updates.

Yes will have legs but nothing compared to GT5. Also the units sold on release date, at full price, were not big at all for a GT game. After that it will be mostly in promotions with discounted price. From a financial point of view they surely expected much more, this game has been in development for a very long time and probably costed a lot. Btw, I never understood why GT6 never sold that much, it is the best and most complete GT in my opinion, my favourite. Just lacked seattle circuit to be perfect.

I agree...GTS was a victim of bad propaganda. People were expecting a fully fledged GT7 when the game never was announced as such. The shitstorm on Amazon and elsewhere by people who had just bought or Forza fanboys and people who had never even played the game, was indescribable.
I also agree that GT6 was a much better game than GT5 and was the game GT5 should have been to begin with.

Bad sales in my opinion, alot of these sales will be from the bundled $199 Playstation VR headset bundles from Black Friday to Christmas (the game sucks in VR however) and also the retail price plummeted in the UK atleast from launch £45 to pretty much £18 everywhere within a month or so.

that's true, but honestly the racing genre is almost kind of niche at this point. Gran Turismo did fairly well considering racers don't pull the attention they did in, say, the 90s or early 2000s. It is true that Sony was quick to discount or bundle the game though, which does inflate numbers. Anyway.

The majority of sales aren't even listed because they will be from the 30,- price drop on digital!
