10 years later, I'm coming here and yup, I was right when I was saying the franchise was on a downward trend.

GT6 did 5.22M and GTS did an awful 3.77M.

Interesting thing to note - when you break down the regions, in the US, GT5 sold 3.44m, while GT4 sold 3.47m. This is significant, because many thought that the brand was falling off there. The highest selling GT, that wasn't a pack-in title in the US (like GT3), sold 3.99m, which was the original game. This means that the drop off has not been anywhere near as big as claimed and it also means that GT is still the highest selling console driving simulator in the region.

GT7 could sell a little closer to that 3.99m, given the PS4's sales history for other, high profile, 1st party titles.

I never dreamed of it doing 12 million. That's just bananas! What it tells me is, GT6 was a bit of a fluke. That it released at the worst possible time (still nearing 5 million, but you get the idea).

GT7 should suffer no such fate. And GT Sport should do a good 8-10 million (a little less than the series' trademark 10-11 million, since it isn't a numbered release).

- ioi fixed the EU numbers (GT4 still needs adjusting there, though).

The last shipped data is 10.66m as of Mar 2013. Yeap I believe the shipment is at least close to 12 million right now.

If VGC is undertracking it then it is really a little amount... 11 million max like CGI said.

@ Kerotan: Yeah, the series is usually known for strong numbers. 10 million is the base I generally use, as I've followed the IP's sales since GT3 back when I was a writer for a small website in the early 2000s. GT6 is probably a bit under-tracked here (I'd be willing to bet it's much closer to 5 million), and I'm thinking GT5 is closer to GT4 too. GT6 is a fluke, though. By GT7, things should be back to normal at 10 million.

Still, I'll PM shortly.

Getting back on the actual topic: Since it has been almost two years, I'm thinking the game is over 11 million sold by now. Or just below it, because some of those folks probably went to pick up GT6.

And you dare blaming me of being condescending. Dude, you're the one here who is aggressive. What a joke.

Listen, I brought up so many arguments showing the franchise is on a downhill. You are asking why are we using GT6 numbers to determine if the franchise is growing or going down, really??? As if it is GT6 is not part of the franchise. I even gave you examples of declining franchises and how a statistical trend is working but you REFUSE to heard them.

And one last thing about your obsession on my previous prediction, I predicted 9 million unless bundled, the game has been bundled and did manage to reach 10.5M. If that's what you called being ''100% wrong'' then good for you my friend. Whatever makes you sleep better at night.

The franchise is on a downhill based on the numbers of GT4, 5 and 6. That's not an opinion, that's a statistical fact and I don't even want to argue with you on this. Will GT7 reverse this trend? Maybe, maybe not. The thing is we don't need to wait for GT7 before confirming this as of now as we don't need to wait until the next Call of Duty game or Pro Evolution Soccer game to confirm that these franchises are also on a downhill. Got it? Now can we just closed out this discussion once and for all?

I invite you try and reply to me without making anything about me, personally. Try it, just once, because you seem to have a serious problem with insulting people and not keeping on topic. As if you know your argument(s) don't work. Your next reply, i look to see if you can pull this off.

Going back to trend, once again, why are we using GT6 in this topic? If the trend is downward, what does GT6 prove? That over 7 million people have given up on the franchise? If the trend was already downward from GT4 to GT5, you'd have to show me what both games final totals are (as of now) and where the change is happening.

Finally, I'd like an actual response to my GT7 question. Since you're the one pushing the "downward trend", you're in the position to predict. However, I don't mind predicting and being wrong, I just haven't been in this topic. It was you who predicted something for GT5 and were proven 100% wrong. You became aggressive ever since. I don't really HAVE to predict anything, but for sS & Gs, I'll happily predict that GT7 will also be a 10 million seller, pushing more units in EU than GT5, and less in Japan. US is the toss up.

Your move.

What the use to give you examples if you don't look at them...and based on your last comment you clearly proved that you don't know how a trend works. Even if GT7 sells 8 million, the average trend will still show a decrease, unless GT8 sell better than GT7. If this happens then the trend would have been reversed.

Honestly at this point you're just totally acting in bad faith. That's a shame. As for the prediction of what GT7 will sell, why don't you commit yourself first and give me yours Mr. I-Don't-Do-Predictions-Because-I-Don't-Want-to-Be-Proved-Wrong.

Oh, and a trend is a general direction in which things are changing, so for GT6 to be a part of that, it has to be an indication that things will stay in the vicinity of 3 million. Is that your expectation?

You clearly don't know the concept of a trend. A trend is not reflected by a perfect straight line, there could be variations but in the end the line is going up or down, even a child can understand this (not an insult, just the reality).

Just take for example the Madden franchise (all platforms combined):

Madden 2009: 7.89M
Madden 2010: 7.52M
Madden 2011: 6.53M
Madden 2012: 5.45M
Madden 2013: 6.11M
Madden 2014: 4.99M
Maddden 2015: 4.54M (as of now)

You can clearly see a trend. The same goes for GT. GT7 will surely sell better than GT6 but it doesnt change the fact that as of now the trend shows a decrease in sales. No need to wait until GT7, to confirm that. That said, sometimes a trend can be reversed (see Mortal Kombat series). But as of now, we can clearly state that the Gran Turismo franchise is on a downhill. Maybe it's hard for you to admit it, but the numbers speak for themselves.

I'm only going to state this once - lay off the personal insults.

Now, talking about trends, If that's the trend, GT7 must be on its way to selling....nothing. Since we know that won't be the case, I don't see how you can take anything from that. And yes, your original prediction DID fail. No one argued against bundles (I certainly didn't). You said it wouldn't ever reach a certain amount, and after it did, this entire convo changed.

My original prediction did not failed, the game WAS bundled. Also this prediction was based on the fact that the franchise was going down this is why I'm bringing GT6 sales into the topic even if you don't like that.

Really, you are arguing like a 10 yo child. You don't want me to bring GT6 sales but would like to wait for GT7 figures before conceding the franchise is on a downhill. This is ridiculous.

Gran Turismo 3 = 14.98M
Gran Turismo 4 = 11.66M
Gran Turismo 5 = 10.53M
Gran Turismo 6 = 3.03M

If you cannot see a trend there, there is no more to be said then.

Ah, I see your condescending nature continues. I only ever came to discuss big updates and was very interested to see its progress (as were you, given how much you would remind us what it did certain weeks and how there was: "no way" it would ever reach 10 million). If there was an obsession there, you clearly had your own.

Now, in regards to GT6 (which you love to deflect to since your original prediction failed), there's nothing left to add. I thought we were agreeing to disagree? Why continue to: "talk in circles"? ;)

By the way, 10M is just a number for me but seems to be an obsession for you. Paying as much attention to a number is quite...disturbing to say the least. What's important is not the numbers, but what is the meaning of these numbers. GT5 numbers is showing a decrease in sales for the franchise and GT6 is confirming that. Sorry again for bursting your bubble.

GT4 actually had quite a few bundles and promotions, especially in the US/EU, and the only thing "empty" about bringing up GT6 is the way you've continued to include it in this years-old discussion, a discussion I proved to be right about in the end (which had absolutely nothing to do with a sequel to Gran Turismo 5).

That said, I agree that this has gone in circles long enough, especially since GT5 has done what many of us said it would, so we can visit GT7's wall when the time is appropriate.

atma998 posted 31/12/2014, 10:14
GT4 did not have that much bundles, rereleases, special editions, promotions and discounts and still sold one million more (or 500k according to you). That said, GT5 needs to be compared to GT3, not 4. Your GT6 analysis is just empty (why selling so bad in comparison to GT2 and/or GT4?)

Anyway, we're just going round in circles.

You think that the franchise is going well while I think it is not.

At this point let's just agree to disagree.

CGI-Quality posted 31/12/2014, 01:26
Your point has actually changed. You first said it would never reach 10 million. Then once it did, you claimed the franchise was on a down-tick and that 10.5m was "barely at 10 million". Going further, as per your own comment, if GT5 hits 11 million, it means, at best, it lost 600K fans (from GT4) out of millions and millions. It's grasping at straws and little else.

In regards to GT6, it's hardly the best example of the IP losing its stronger fan-base of 10 million+ (all it ever needs to do in my eyes. That is precisely why there's nothing you can absolutely claim about the franchise's future, and certainly not in any reasonable manner, until the next GT releases. If the same thing happens with GT7, then yes, your most recent point will gain validity.

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 outdated).

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.

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

@CGI-Quality

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 knows?

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.

@ atma: I'm not saying there weren't some ridiculously high predictions. There certainly were. However, you were aggressive about yours, even going as far as minor flaming here and there, and that's why things sometimes got ugly.

As for GT: "going down", I just don't understand how 10.66m is: "just barely over 10 million". And that was as of Mar 2013. Who knows how much higher it is nearly two years later. What we can take from Polyphony's totals - it's closer to 11 million (and even though we have it under-tracked here, our numbers put it at just under 500K shy of that). That's more than a million over GT2, which is why I don't get how the franchise has declined, using that metric. Now mind you, I understand that GT6 didn't do anywhere near what its predecessor did, and that's hugely disappointing and all Sony's fault, but lets take a broader look at this - it launched just after the PS4 and didn't see the buzz of GT5. If GT7 releases on the PS4 to that same tune, your points will become far more potent and I'll concede that things don't look good for what was once one of the highest selling gaming IPs of all time. As it stands, though, GT6 could very well prove to be an anomaly.

So, for now, I'm fine with calling a simple truce. We should revisit the topic (and have a civil debate) once GT7 receives a release date, grabs a spot on VGC, and just after launch. Fair enough?

Let's make it clear, I only care about the sales, this site's main focus is on video game sales and this page is not a fan page, but a page to share our thoughts about the sales.

What speaks for itself is the fact that you'e calling out my prediction while you ignore the ridiculously high ones made by others. When speaking about GT6 which is part of the series, last I heard, you're saying this is irrelevent and off topic as if we can only speak of the game and not the franchise.

When I predicted the game would not reach 10 million, my main argument was that the franchise was on a downhill. The game barely reached 10 million and I was wrong in my prediction but my main argument is still true. The franchise is going done, bottom line.

As of March 2013, it had shipped 10.66m. Surely, as of now (October 2014), it's shipped in excess of 11 million, which would also mean it has sold, at the very least, 10.5m. One doesn't understand the reason for the reduction.

I don't think there was a really big difference between the number of GT3 bundles vs. GT5 bundles but if you know the numbers feel free to share it with us.

@atma the funny thing about your GT3 comparison is GT5 would have sold just as many if they bundled it to GT3's extent.

@r3tr0gam3r1337 Sorry I didnt know this page was only for positive comments. Iol

@Kyuu Read one more time, ''DIDNT sell as terrible as I was expecting''.
GT5 sales are good, not great as it did not reached GT3 numbers (not even GT4) as so many of you predicted it would. It just didn't happen and it won't, live with it. I'm sorry if this is not a ''postitive comment'' but this is just the truth.

Now if you guys think GT6 sales are good, then good for you. FYI GT4 was also released late in the PS2 lifecycle and still managed to sell 11.66M. GT6 will be lucky to sell 1/2 of that.

GT5 sells 11 million, GT6 sells 2 million and some how that's a terrible disappointment for a racing game ?, please stop with the rubbish, if you have nothing positive to say don't say anything at all but for the rest of us in the real world those ales numbers are fantastic especially being released after a major next gen console release "the PS4".

@atma

GT6 may be a terrible disappointment for a "Gran Turismo game" but certainly not for a "Racing Game" given it's still the best selling Racer of all time excluding GT's and a few Mario Kart games (which is a franchise that doesn't fall in the same category anyway)

And calling an 11 million seller terrible (well not horribly-terrible apparently) is stupid to say the least. Now if you spare us your ignorance.

Please learn how to read. I said the game DIDNT sell as terrible as I was expecting back in 2010. If you absolutely want an example of what can be considered as terrible disappointment for a racing game in terms of sales, just take a look at GT6 numbers ;)

Not sure I believe the numbers here tbh, whilst yeah there was the re-release last year I fail to see how the game has managed to be up YOY, at least not by the 23.8% shown here I think 2011 should be more closer to 2.15m units sold then 2.2m units sold in 2012. I also think that it's undertracked as shipment figures by March were 10.66m and meaning there would be roughly 350k on selves in March, leading into the slower months, which I fail to believe considering most retailers will be wanting to have sold through gt5 stock come the end of next week and I don't think it's beyond the reaches of imagination to think that there has been a further shipment of gt5 since march so I'm saying it's ~200k undertracked

@Alby

I was saying the game won't reach 10M and it barely did (now just over 10.5M mark). As CGI said they were people far worse than me like the one predicting 15M+ numbers.

That said, the game did not reach GT3 numbers (first GT of last gen), not even GT4, despite all the marketing, bundles, promotions, price cut, etc. But I have to admit it didnt sell as terrible as I was expecting during its first year of selling.

GT5 has had a rebirth, the sales numbers keep climbing though i guess its mainly newcomers getting practise ready for GT6, i've only got 2 endurance races to go both being 24 hours but the rewards will be worth it, currently lvl 39 A spec and lvl 40 B spec.

GT6 confirmed as a PS3 title, looks like the PS3 is far from the end of it's generation,
like Sony said from the start "the PS3 is a 10 year console", so far its been 7 years so there are still 3 more years to go.

oh the GT6 demo hits some time in june/july.

GT6 = the next big thing before people jump on to PS4 and DriveClub.
End of 7th generation Sony has nailed it down for more PS3 games & PS4 games.

Sony all your first party developers are working so hard and making games all year long= PS3, PSV, PS4.
LONG LIVE THE PLAYSTATION! 😄

Interesting thing to note - when you break down the regions, in the US, GT5 sold 3.44m, while GT4 sold 3.47m. This is significant, because many thought that the brand was falling off there. The highest selling GT, that wasn't a pack-in title in the US (like GT3), sold 3.99m, which was the original game. This means that the drop off has not been anywhere near as big as claimed and it also means that GT is still the highest selling console driving simulator in the region.

GT7 could sell a little closer to that 3.99m, given the PS4's sales history for other, high profile, 1st party titles.

I never dreamed of it doing 12 million. That's just bananas! What it tells me is, GT6 was a bit of a fluke. That it released at the worst possible time (still nearing 5 million, but you get the idea).

GT7 should suffer no such fate. And GT Sport should do a good 8-10 million (a little less than the series' trademark 10-11 million, since it isn't a numbered release).
