Not much of a surprise to see GT6 not hitting as hard as the last version. Releasing it right at the launch of the new console is great in terms of showing some support for the old console, but with no backwards compatibility on the new machine it's a tough sell.

2 million vs 60 million that is not the reason as to why this game is flopping.

What it does show is that, similar to the music charts, a higher position is by no means a sign of quality!

What on earth are you suggesting, pb? Are you inferring that certain parts of the gaming industry produce games that they know will sell quickly, but have little substance?

I suppose the only games that the logic can be applied to is Super Mario but sadly I think it's weak sales are due to the small install base. Really wanted the current advertisement to have an impact but it doesn't look like it is. Maybe too little too late.

The other being Zelda. Nintendo console owners are a strange bunch. Smile
