Fastest does not mean best selling in xbox history.Its not like there's that much to buy on the system yet anyway.You could say the same for killzone shadowfall.

There is also the flip side to it. Since they only have moved 3.6 million Xbox One's they were never going to sell more than Forza 4 (which was around 4 million). There was also a lot of games to buy at launch

correct me if I'm wrong but, isn't Forza racing games always have low sales???

InTheLab1282d ago

No correction necessary. Forza generally sells 1 to 1.5m on it's own and all other sales come from bundling like how F4 was bundled with a 360 and Skyrim.

So it's not surprising that F5 sold what it sold but it will be shocking if it sells more that 2m as a standalone title without a massive price drop.

Forza 3 sold 5.39 million,what are you talking about.

@ Muffins,
im comparing sales to another great racer/simulator.

"Gran Tourism"

Magicite1282d ago

even first forza on original xbox has sold more or about the same as 5th, while all other are far ahead (except horizon)

Advantage of being a launch title.

Also happens to help that Forza has always been good.

Gamer6661282d ago

I disagree...

Deadrising 3 is a lot of fun, Powerstar Golf is a fun extreme golf game, Killer Instinct is an awesome fighting game, Ryse is a solid action game, Forza 5 is a solid racing game, Halo Spartan Assault is a solid top/down shooter, Max and the Curse of Brotherhood is a really good platformer, Peggle 2 is a very cool game, Crimson Dragon is even good after the updates to it. Lococycle is the only really weak launch game for X1.

So over 1.1m, well done.

Add DR3 and Ryse and the top X1 games are well over 2.5m

Yep, Forza deserves it, it's a great franchise.

Congrats Turn10.

AutoCad1282d ago

Wouldnt think otherwise its a great racing enjoying it alot.

NintendoYouth1282d ago

when X1 launched at my Gamestop every purchaser pretty much wanted Forza #1 and Ryse #2.

Both those games are still very popular and we run out quickly.

noctis_lumia1282d ago

ryse popular ?
that piece of crap god of war QTE edtion wannabe ?
lol ms fangirls must be desperate

NintendoYouth1282d ago

Ryse sells a lot.
Not my business what people play.

You may hate it but some people really enjoy it.
from a PS4 owner.

noctis_lumia1282d ago

meh ppl already forgot ryse lol
and will be buried once the king of the genre god of war will be released on the ps4

bobsmith1282d ago

I wish I got xbox for this ps4 tricked me with driveclub

LogicStomper1282d ago

You could always get both.


The_Infected1282d ago (Edited 1282d ago )


Sony isn't rushing Driveclub so it want be downgraded it will be upgraded. The wait for Driveclub will be well worth it just wait and see.

GamingNerd0131282d ago (Edited 1282d ago )

Agreed yo look at forza 5 easly the worst forza game in series they downgraded everything about it less cars less tracks no weathers no night and day missing content from both 4 and 3 like storefront gift able to choose some cars as a award after competing and level up in SP mode bad online modes and lobby and use 2 be the horrible microtranaction. I'm glad Sony delay DC cause I know we will get a true full next gen racer expronce that will blow our minds with its graphics cars tracks weathers night and day wich it has and if they manage to get it 60fps with all the thing I just said then I'm just going to say MS devs suck so bad compared to sony who put their soul into make their games a complete exprince.
