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

LackTrue4K1521d ago

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

InTheLab1521d 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.

Sony/PlayStation's
"Gran Tourism"

Magicite1521d 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.

Gamer6661521d 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.

NintendoYouth1521d 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.
