First-week sales forGran Turismo 6don'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 toChart-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 Turismohas 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 ofGT6's less than stellar start? Will the inevitable PlayStation 4 entry turn things around for Polyphony? Comment below with your thoughts.
