Will Gran Turismo 6 take Sony to 80M racing games sold? (video interview)

VB - Gran Turismo 6 will be a smooth ride. That’s the promise from series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, who has worked on the PlayStation racing franchise for 15 years and has watched it sell more than 70 million units since 1997. That’s several billion dollars in revenue.

Makes no sense, this title. Since Sony has had other racing games under it's belt, it's probably past 80 Million some time ago. Next time, be more specific with your titles...

hehe a little picky there yewles but I know what you mean.

I actually don't think the title goes far enough. I mean they're already approaching the mark w/ GT's 1-5 alone, already so I think the question should be, "will it help it near 90 million?), especially if it's launched a little later on the PS4, which they've [SNE/PD] alluded to already...

for those that don't know,

Gran Turismo /is/ the PlayStation brand, so I see a "100 million sold" edition not too far from now. The only thing is I just pray that it never leaves PD's hands and becomes "McDonald's-like" ; one day :(

This should of been ps4 I just hope we don't have to wait along time for gt7 atl least we have drive club.

Since Sony will likely announce a PS3 price drop at E3, I expect a PS3/GT6 bundle.

Shane Kim1158d ago

Anything else would be retarded.

Boody-Bandit1158d ago

As long as it still supports triple panels, I will be 3 of those 80 million.

Mario201158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

Hahahaha there are not even 80 million people on this planet. ONLY about 8 million. Learn how to count George

These days you cant even pick an apple without politics intervening

Edit: Hah fanboys chose to disagree with truth. You better rewind those cameras because they do not lie

HammadTheBeast1158d ago

Are you serious?

Or Trolling....

If Serious.... just stop thinking and making thoughts.

FlameBaitGod1158d ago (Edited 1158d ago )

I really hope your trolling cus if not.... humanity is doomed.

ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG MY TUMMY HURTS! That is comment of the year here on N4G. Mods should give him more bubbles.

Bathyj1158d ago

Ha.
Dont you love it when someone makes such a big deal about correcting someone and is wrong themselves?

Only 8 million huh?
I guess that means every person on the planet owns 10 PS3's.

GenericNameHere1158d ago

8 million. ONLY 8 million...
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHA!!! Where do you people come from? I'm not sure if you're from 1250 B.C. and was able to time travel here in the year 2012 A.D., but try nearing 8 Billion! The whole of North America has over 500M. Japan has over 100M. China has over 1B! Now you're calling us fanboys who choose to disagree with the truth? What truth? There's no facts. Only an idiot man who seems to think there are ONLY 8 million people currently living on this planet.

What planet are you living on?

nikoado1158d ago

Is there an actual person behind this N4G account or is this a spam bot?

Some of his previous comments are complete gibberish.

Bathyj1158d ago

I saw some other comments.
I wondered if he was just a random word generator.
Maybe its just a bunch of manatees in a tank putting a bunch of idea balls into a topic hole.

I love GranTurismo since PS1 and believe GT6 will be bought by many, but also think ( here in Australia anyway ) that GT6 will be heavily discounted after just a couple of months.. maybe.

Happened to God of War: Ascension, it's now being sold at AU$39 from AU$99.

BlmThug1158d ago

GT will easily pass that mark and I will contribute
