Crazy it's been 20 years. I remember purchasing GT1 in 1998. Brb, clouds to yell at lol
If you talk lifetime sales at least.
If you talk about current performance and zeitgeist, obviously not.
Uncharted has sold 41.7 million.
So around half of what GT did...
What a game, I usually play a race or two most nights. Also it's beautiful delivered in terms of UI. I hope they just keep building on this foundation from here on out. Also... PSVR support while slim, gives a taster for the very real prospect of full on online racing in VR on PS5. That will be gobsmackingly awesome to behold. What a time to Iive in.
3.2, 3.3 million for GTS seems about right for how old GT games keep selling and it fits with the 4.2mi accounts with a good rate of second-hand sales and multiple users in a household.
If they keep up the updates and the live events maintain this quality:
It should do well in the long run, all things considered.
Good stuff, I hope PD continues to grow what they've done with Sport and push the online. The strict rule set and rotating races are an amazing mix.
Any idea how the old titles sold compared to GTS in the same time frame?
GT2 tuning is what is missing.
I remember simple cars when tuned got unique decals or turned in a unique competition car.
Sim racing is a dying genre and practically dead in North America. Those numbers are pretty impressive and likely still top of the genre by a decent margin.
Well damn. That's pretty decent.
People really REALLY want GT to fail...it's really bizarre.
And I bought GT when it released... I’m feeling old.
Polyphony is a brilliant studio and GT Sport a fantastic experience. It makes me excited for what they’re doing next.
Their mismanagement of GT is mindboggling. The path to release of GT5 was a disaster. Releasing GT6 on PS3 after the launch of PS4?!What the flying fuck
Then releasing an online only game after 4 freaking years of having ps4 on the market, yet not calling it GT7 to top it off?! WTF were they thinking.
Considering series was always a slow burner without NPD-breaking lauches, 3 to 4 million sell-through in less than a year is a stellar result. How many exlusive sims (not arcades) achieved that numbers?
I, personally, love Sport. iRacing for consoles in MP and after patches pretty complete in SP. Free DLCs with cars and tracks where also a nice little touch. Sport is also unbeatable in terms of VR (limited, but still) and HDR support. I could see 8+ mil. sell through at the end of the genration. Easily.
Weird that even with Forza having better scores, GTS still sold more than it did.
I also prefer how GT Sport drives with its physics engine now. Better damage handling? The whole point of real racing is not damage son, it's the opposite. GT Sport is ahead in online, leagues, detail on both cars and tracks, and overall presentation by a mile. There is some argument as to which game is better. For me after patches it is definitely GT Sport.
Scores mean mostly shit, so I mean it's not really weird that the largest racing franchise sold more than Forza. Logic.
It's pretty likely that GT6 was pumped out to the larger PS3 userbase in order to make back some money from GT5 and push some funds to their PS4 project (now GT Sport). That absolutely made sense, considering the wreck GT5 was. GTS has some strange design choices, but none of them really seem that crazy. From the start they made it explicitly clear what they wanted to do with the game, and that was build an "eSport" caliber racing title with a strong online community. Online only makes sense in that regard, as it places fans in a real competitive space as opposed to offline interactions.
I don't think there is mismanagement with the GT franchise as much as their is fatigue for the franchise, and past fans having been burned on GT5. The studio is obviously going through some growing pains with GTS, but with their efforts since launch, it's clear to see that this is one of the best entires into the series since it's inception, and offers a lot of long requested fan features that are improving little by little with every update, along side new free content.
The hate is just bewildering and seems almost childish. It's okay to not like it or be fond of it, but the people that come out of the woods to really blast it is just so weird to me.
Road to 100M go go go!
I still like GT mood and the games, perhaps it's my personal taste but i prefer Forza simulation feeling.
When GT will get car damage and better AI this will be a game changer for the GT games ^-^
Strategic failure to launch GT6 a week after PS4 launch, and GTS the state it was in.
Ideally they should've skipped 6 and worked immediately on GTS and launch in 2015, and have it function as their racing event driven live service title for this gen.
Love the camera angles they are showing on the stream, wish they had them on replays
I fucking love Sport! Never felt so good on wheel. Terrific updates including a frankly astonishing Monza rendition and some of the best lighting you'll see. Sunny Monza is just eerie...Always has a soft spot for GT and always will.
Minimum of 3.4m agrees with the profiles numbers that crossed 4 million.
I loved Forza, but prefer GTS now for what it does better.
GT5 is the best and most compete GT game before GTS was launched (it is the best but not more complete).
The others needs to improve a lot to catch what PD did with GTS... they envolved the sim racing genre on consoles.
Ohhhh and you are completely wrong about AI to close the opposite... car damage you are right.
PD should just remaster GT 2 and 3. GT hasn't been the same since.
The ranking and penalty system in GTS makes for far cleaner racing in random lobbies, even if it isn't perfect. I wish Forza did anything at all to address all the ramming and god awful racing.
Three best selling Sony owned franchises:
1. Gran Turismo - 80.4 million
2. Uncharted - 41.7 million
3. God of War - at least 24.7 million
In 2012 before ascension came out it was ~22 million, with ascension, GoW3 remaster and GoW 2018 (3.1 million first 3 days) it's absolutely +30 million.
Mind boggling that GTAV has sold more copies THAN EVERY SINGLE GRSN TURISMO GAME RELEASED. GTAV is a beast.
This is a better system than a damage system that punishes the innocent.
