Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec (PS2) > Opinions (40)

STRYKIE posted 20/10/2013, 09:07
@Mr Puggsly - the game wasn't widely bundled, you have to remember at the time, there wasn't any racing games on any other platform that delivered a scale of visuals and content that GT3 did.

Coupled with the fact that it was one of the earliest PS2 games to go Greatest Hits/Platinum, it was a no-brainer for the best selling PS2 game until San Andreas, notice it's also the only GT game where the US has the biggest sales numbers by a heavy margin.

I do agree that Halo has a bigger core market, just GT in general is more of a something for everyone IP.

@ Puggs: Halo 3 had a good lot of bundles. I just don't think, at that time, that a Halo game could have ever taken a GT game. These days, who knows, but GT5 is only a little over a million behind Halo 3 and both have had their share of bundles. In the end, GT5 could even, potentially, outsell it.

@ kyuu - Halo can achieve these numbers with the same massive bundling.

14.89m for years and now 14.90m by magic ? PS2 had several adjustments today : San Andreas and Vice City were upped too.

lol @ yahoocom.. Halo reach is barely over half the sales of this so far. and 2nd point is, this is a racing game, a genre that isn't so prefered by gamers on contrast to FPS, Halo can never touch this which I actually find surprising.

maybe GT5 can follow GT3 sales IF GT5 is bundled in Americas AND Europe.

I still play this game today. The music, gameplay, customisation, cars, tracks and graphics really makes this game enjoyable unlike many other racers.

In a few weeks, Mario Kart Wii will take GT3's crown as most sold racing game ever.
