Mr Puggsly posted 23/11/2018, 01:05
@Kerotan - A Porlogue release has never been supported with so many significant updates or pushed DLC. This is the Gran Turismo of the 8th gen and lacking a number in the title doesn't change that. Sony hyped this as a major release, not a Prologue.

@Mentore - I dunno if that's necessary or a good idea, but something needs to be done to make this studio more efficient.

@Lekzie69 - I guess you would have to assume FH3 doesn't have great digital sales as well. It may have also been a popular game on PC. Physically FH3 is ahead but both seem to have been bundled games.

@Mentore So in your opinion selling 3.42 million at retail means the series is dead? What kind of logic is that? It's true that GT used to sell much better, but closing a studio that still produce multi million sellers would be like throwing money in the trashcan.

4m retail only next stop. Excellent sales for a glorified prologue. Only gran turismo could pull that off.

Bearing in mind the decline of the genre in sales, digital sales being relevant, and its not really a full fledged release, the numbers are good.

I think the problem is Polyphony. Their development is so slow and Sony just wanted something on market to fill the void. Frankly, I think Sony did the right thing because the gameplay is tight even if the product as a whole is lacking.

Even though this was essentially hyped to be a major release, I think most new it wasnt. I'm sure theyre updating this and working on next real GT at the same time.

@Mr.Puggsly
Sales aren't impressive considering the discounts, but it's expected. The confusing marketing didn't do them any favors, and the Street Fighter V-esque model they adapted isn't compatible with the Playstation community.

They killed off the hype right off the bat. It doesn't matter how good or complete the game will shape up to be when all is said done because by the time that happens, most players will have long since moved on to playing new hyped games. I honestly don't understand who thought this was a good idea. With racing games (and to an extent the GT brand) declining, you'd think Sony would put their utmost efforts in reminding people why Gran Turismo is the king instead of taking forever to release an unfinished game.

Gran Turismo has been mishandled ever since GT5.

It was certainly no where close to GT5 as far as ‘hype’ is concerned. That said, for the next release, it needs to be a homerun (like GT5).

The sales are really good, but this isn't a glorified Prologue.

Sony hyped this as the next big release and its getting significant updates, unlike Prologue releases.

With the sales of Black Friday and others will reach 2 million and with Christmas insurance it will be close to 3 million, not bad for an online focused game where you have tried to voicote for reinventing yourself

My perspective is different. I believe GT is still viable with these numbers, but Polyphony has less power. Hence, Sony may step in and try to have development problems addressed. It shouldnt take much of a generation to make an incomplete racing game.

The racing genre has declined but its still more than viable. I mean some of these IPs still sell in the millions. I know a million opening is a far cry from what GT has done, but thats still pretty huge. Its something few exclusives do.

@Mr Puggsly sony even said this was gt7 in all but name so who knows whats the future for this franchise. sony allowed them long development because it used to be a money maker but with these sales that model won't be sustainable.

its not just gt games that have done poorly its literally the whole racing genre. companies milked the racing genre and now theres nothing left even for the biggest brands.

sony just got complacent thinking people would buy a gt game just because it exists like people do with gta or call of duty game and its come to bite them. they even toned down the marketing because they thought it was a guaranteed money maker. sometimes its good for these massive franchises to flop to bring these companies down to reality.

The Forza vs GT talk, while seemingly inevitable, needs to stop. If you came here to discuss GT Sport, great. If your angle is to put down Forza (or claim it is better than GT in an attempt to stir up trouble) then you shouldn't be here. I'll be watching these comments closely, so take heed on what I've said.

I do think there is a decline, definately. But at the same time, had this been a full GT7 with a career, 800+ cars and highly reviewed, it would have done substantially better than this.

@spacedelete - You got some things right and wrong.

No, these aren't holiday bundling because these numbers are from October.

The expectations for this series have certainly declined. Instead of acknowledging that people instead just focus on how its still bigger than Forza. Not sure why that matters, especially given Forza has a different strategy with its annual releases.

Some argue this is just a glorified Prologue and GT7 is coming down the road. But Sony has hyped this as the next major release and content is being added.

GT is still a popular IP and its merely failing at achieving its potential with long development periods and an incomplete product for $60. I'm just not sure why people make excuses for it.

@OsafuneKatana you do know these are awful sales for a gran turismo game right? also most of these 1 million sales were from black friday where stores were literally givibg the game away.

forza also comes out every year so lower sales aren't as important. gt games take half a decade and tgis one has finally flopped.

inagine gta 6 only selling a million. gt no longer a premier big must have purchase.

All of PD was working in the online. The online is great, the PS3 was hell with the studios becouse was hard to work

Is until to give conclusions, and more if this spin off is for a specific audience and an idea that girl to the fans

Oh Kero, you can look at this two ways. Yes, it did crush Forza 7, the fifth title this gen, so whatever thats worth. But VG Chartz is tracking Forza at about 9 million sold and likely millions more digitally. The strategy for that series is a new full priced product each year with DLC sold as well. Which I dont mind because I like seeing Forza constantly improved.

But more importantly how is Gran Turismo doing compared to previous releases? Maybe its the sales king but it has also declined. You call it a glorified Prologue but its development was long and still a work in progress.

Like I said before this series is still popular, I expected a strong opening. But the series is also suffering from long development periods and modest reviews arent helping. I'm waiting for price cuts, I rather buy the game when its cheaper and more completed.

Glorified prologue 1st week outsells Forza 7 first 3 weeks by 3:1. GT7 will have no competition and if for a wants to put up some decent numbers it needs to take. Fee years off.

Much of the gen is over and we still dont have a complete game. So again, something needs to be done.

If youre arguing Polyphony needs more people, I agree.

WTF? JAJAJAJJA

Trun 10 have 400 employes + Playground studios.
In Polyphony have 150 + Small team of Japan Studio.

"needs to change at GT's studio." So that it becomes a generic simulator like Forza in PC2? LOL had read things without meaning but this is the most regrettable of all... PD have soul, have personality, a Gran Turismo witout PD is bullshit. The fantasy tracks, the menus, the music,ythe art direction, GT is soul, love for cars. But in this times is more Appreciated the industrial machinery (quantity) that the craft (the soul), it hurts that you think so, and it's good that you're not a sony manager. The only thing PD needs is more people

The series isnt dead, nobody should entertain that thought.

However, the decline seems to be real and the delvelopment for an incomplete product is too long.

Forza had four notable releases in the same time it took to make this. Something certainly needs to change at GT's studio.

GT6 had a bigger US opening, but that was before digital was as prevalent.

Curious to see how EU plays out. Thats the bread and butter.
