Hmmm maybe next gen had to deal with that sales record first of all

well doesnt matter. GT6 is still selling well nonetheless. 2 million in such a short time is still successful.

While I agree with that GT6 is still selling well nonetheless. I think it might have sold better if so many weren't converting over to the PS4.

It'll total out well. This series has legs, I didn't pick it up because I want a Next Gen version.

I don't even have my PS3 right now, so it would be sorta pointless for me to buy the game, though I really, REALLY want it.

I'm sure they expected low sales.

I actually don't think it's been marketed as well. I remember all the build up for 5, they even did the Prologue to lead up to it.

When I started seeing reviews for 6 I thought 'Whoa! GT6 is out already?'

I bought the Collectors version and played 500+hrs of gt5 and DID NOT BUY GT6!

GT6 is literally GT5.2! They promised us soo much dlc and we got trash, seriously dissapointed in the last years of gt5 and will be buying Project cars.

As far as GT6 being GT5.2 i disagree. The visual leap might not be much, but there is quite a bit more content and there is noticeable improvement in the racing mechanics. If you like GT and you still have your PS3 it's worth buying.

2 Reasons
1. PS4
2. GT5 had so much hype back then that preorders were pretty high, GT6 didn't get that hype.

Exactly.

Polyphony needs to evolve the series. They are way too preoccupied on the cars themselves and not enough on the actual GAME aspect of the series. Other racing games are starting to leave them in the dust in terms of features. Some of the low sales are due to people going next gen. Some of it is due to lack of marketing. However I also believe that some of it is due to some gamers just moving on to other racing titles.
