GT6 Sells Five Times Less Than Gran Turismo 5 In Its First Week In The UK

Posted on Tuesday, December 10 @ 06:58:23 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


First-week sales for Gran Turismo 6 don't appear to be all that impressive in the UK, with its predecessor having outsold it five times over during the week when it first launched.

This is according to Chart-Track, which states:

The lone new entry at No8 within the All Formats Top 40 is Sony's 'Gran Turismo 6' for PS3. It's been 3 years since 'Gran Turismo 5' on PS3 and that title marked the highpoint for the series in terms of week 1 sales (selling close to 5 times the amount shown for GT6). But of course, consumers have a new Sony console under the TV right now, or are considering a PS4 purchase right now, which will affect GT6's sales.

Is the launch of PlayStation 4 the primary reason for the weak initial sales, or is interest in the series starting to drop off? Gran Turismo has proven to be a massive seller over in the UK, so the fact that it has sold so poorly right out of the gate is a bit alarming, even if it's on older hardware.

What do you make of GT6's less than stellar start? Will the inevitable PlayStation 4 entry turn things around for Polyphony? Comment below with your thoughts.
