Codemasters has told CVG that it is confident Sony's Gran Turismo 5 won't steal gamers away from its own F1 2010.
gt5 will be huge and the name alone gt5 will easly will out sell f1 2010 sales big time?
tru dat diggity dawg
LOL @ Codemasters! The ONLY reason I'm not buying F1 2010 is because GT5 will be released this November.
I'm pretty sure the point of the Codemasters comment was that F1 2010 is targeting a specific audience. If you're an F1 fan you're going to no doubt pick up F1 2010 since it's dedicated to just THAT sport. GT5 is going to be great, and I'll be getting both, but I NEED my F1 fix and F1 2010 will cure that.
im with syn. i love gt5, and will get it day 1, but f1 2010 looks sick, and sure will get it. it will go great with my g27
This F1 fan is with jjohan35. Not that I think GT5 is enough, or that it render F1 useles in anyway, it's simply because 1 game + G27 will eat out all of my gaming resources for November and December (those wheels price range is the equivalent of 350~450 US$ here in Brazil). And I love F1 but I also love other kind of races, as FIA's own GT Championship, WTCC and specially WRC, as well as Stock Car (not so much NASCAR through, as I like road courses over oval tracks) all of which GT5 got covered, maybe not in it's most complete or licenced form, but covered anyway... And I'm not even talking about how much getting those top licences can be awesome! So F1 will have to wait 'till my wallet recover (or my G27 screams for more too loud that I can't hear my wallet or common sense). On a totally off-topic side note, I wouldn't mind if Kazunori would made me need new pants and just unveil motorcycles for GT5 (I don't care if it means on release or plans to DLC) and bring some love of FIA's WRC and Dakar (suposing that the Toscana track actually means point to point races) KTM, Yamaha and BMW Motorrad motorcycles, they probably already have good licenced tracks, and also some FIM's GP toys when I feel like going even faster. Let's just hope that if my totally out of my a** guesses come true, Logitech don't come out of nowhere with a W27 handlebar that I'll need to sell my real motorcycle to get a fake one! LOL Well, scratch that tracks part... I just remembered, whaever it don't have, I can do myself!
GT5 is going to consume all of November and any game released then.
Gran Turismo will obviously outsell it, but it won't take sales away from it. People who want a formula one game will get it, but they will also get gt5 along with millions of others who won't get F1.
I think that even without GT5's release date being so (in)conveniently placed, this game would have had mediocre sales.
well it wont. because people with one system will buy F1, if they want a new racer. some people just dont want a ps3. for whatever reason. but if your a true racing fan and had a chance to play GT5 you would be crazy to miss this OUT
they wont eat it cause there gonna shit on it both sales and quality!!
CODEMASTER IS NO MATCH WITH GRAN TRUISMO. THEY WISH!!! GRAN TURISMO 5 HAS TRACK EDITOR!!!
Arcade racer? Get the hell outta here! Do you even know what F1 means?
I think it's opposite day. Gran Turismo 5 WILL eat F1 2010 sales - Codemasters
are this guys going to release their racing game at the same time that GT5? SUICIDEEEE!!! i say
Soooo, I am guessing that you did not read the article. Code Masters made a very legit statement....they were not saying that they would beat out GT5 in terms of sales, but that they are creating a different kind of game...that would still allow their fanbase to exist despite GT5.
They're in denial. GT5 will absolutely massacre F1 2010.
GT5 will be a big success, have no doubte, but GT5 and F1 2010 are not my type of car racing game. I'll take the new Need for Speed or Motorstorm 3 instead.
I was so pumped for Overlord 2 and when I finally picked up that abortion of a game I swore them off forever.
GT5 will murder this game...
In reality tho, yes.Yes it will.
codemaster must be on damage control.
You guys are releasing a racing game? .... within the same time as GT5? http://www.greenbuildinglaw... Good luck, bros. Let's just put it this way: ~Your last F1 game was sold on two platforms, both of which have sold over 60mil by now, and GT5:P outsold that times 3. ~GT5: P outsold every game Codemasters released on that same year combined. I looove Codemasters, but GT5 might be the only racer hardcore racing fans will need this year.
or till GT6 comes out...
@DWeezy91 LMAO bubbles+
Gt5 Will outsell F1 big time but I don't think it will hurt F1's sales much
They might be on to something. F1 has it's fanbase like GT does I'm sure, plus F1 is multiplat so people that want their racing sim fix for the 360 will probably pick F1 2010 up.
So you think that F1 will sell between 10-15 million? Gran turismo 5 is looking like it will be the best selling GT game of all time. I seiriously doubt that F1 will even outsell GT5Prologue much less the big bad GT5. GT5 will probably sell more than every racing game released this year combined.
No. Like it said in the article, Codemasters is expecting 1 to 1.5 million sales, so they will probably sale what they're hoping to sale.
What are you talking about? He didn't say that at all. He pretty much said GT5 release might not hurt F1's sales. He didn't say F1 would sell as much as GT5. I think Codemasters has the F1 license this year correct? But even Im skeptical about GT5 not eating their sales. GT5 is like the COD for the racing genre, racing fans likely won't need anything else.
Yeah, but when Sony had the F1 licence, the sales were still nothing compared to Gran Turismo.
I dont understand the comparison.. Codemasters has the exclusive license to F1... so how does that relate to GT5... GT5 will sell better but the target audience is slightly different. If I want an F1 Game, I will get F1 2010, it does not affect whether I want a general racer like GT5
Ever since OFP:DR I truly dislike Codemasters, don't listen to their crap they know GT5 will hurt their sales.
ummm i dnt knw if any of you guys play f1 race but i wud never waste my money on dat crap and how cud they use it in same sentence and gran tourismo i onli played 2 of them before and im totaly sold gt5 i will be waiting for you and your glory thats the racer game that ONLY DOSE EVERYTHING ps3 exclusives rock
Depends on what F1 game you played. If it were F1 (2006) ... then that was crap. Otherwise there are good F1 games (2001, 2002)... but at the same time... driving an F1 car is not like driving a regular car. You have to know how to drive the cars to enjoy it and I dont expect the regular man to just pick it up like that. Takes some skill. Not sure if you have that.
No, really it won't steal any of our sales (sniff, wipe tears from eyes). We will do just as good as GT5, better even( bursts into tears), LOL
getting a little cockey
guys pleas excuse Codemasters they have been too busy snorting cocaine off turn 10s ass.
I'm sure GT5 wont take any US sales of F1 2010 away. Since there probably won't be many anyway. Why buy an F1 game though if you can buy GT5 and have all kinds of cars? Unless you don't have a PS3.
How much u wanna bet gt5 gets delayed.....jkjkjkj jajajajaja
im getting both :)
I think it will all depend on the quality of the F1 portion of GT5 compare to F1. It would be a big problem sales wise for F1 2010 if the F1 portion of GT5 is better. On the other hand. Hardcore F1 fans might pick up F1 over GT5 because i think F1 will have more variety and cover more F1 tracks/cars etc compare to GT5.
F1 has my vote gt5 looks good but i hated prologue codemasters rock ,i finally got uncharted 2 got sick of fanboys going on about it so far the game is shit looks arnt everything hate the stealth crap.
Gt5 will kill it and to the 360 fanboys that say they will get it, well their are full of it like turn 10 is.
keep telling yourselves that!
blah blah blah....wheres Dirt 3? Codemasters isnt saying they will outsell GT5, only they dont think GT5 will hinder their sales
heres a better question? wheres Grid 2?
Lol, Codemasters. GT5 is going to mop up the competition.
GT5 is going to be big and yes it will eat into your sales. They added so much into their game that I doubt your game is going to get people lining up to buy it. It does look good but it will be a 30 dollar purchase for me.
More F1 fans will buy F12010!! More fans of every kind of racing will buy GT5!!
GT5 will inhale all of November and PS3 'slim' will get fat off the carbs.
Of course it won't. In two months nobody would even remember F1 2010.
So they are correct
"Gran Turismo 5 won't eat F1 2010 sales" I agree and i must say more, GT5 will not eat the next official and complete WRC game, or the next official and complete nascar game. Any true fan of Formula1, Nascar or WorldRallyCar knows that. :)
is GT5 is my first priority buy, so I might not buy F1 till months later at best. However, there is also the chance I might miss it all together if my experience with GT4 is anything to go by. If they could release F1 2010 much earlier (like now) then I could get it otherwise, I only want to focus on one racing game when GT5 is out. I don't like switching driving styles between games. Its the same like I can't play killzone 3 and a COD at the same time. I'd rather finish one then start the next and with how long we've been waiting for GT5, it's going to be the first one I touch!
sorry codemasters but GT5 even has F1 cars in it, nascar racing, noght time races, basically it has too much content for me to say no, I will choose GT5 over F1, and anything else that comes out at holdays sorry:P:P
who the eff wants to drive F1 cars only when you can drive in Nascar, F1, rally, street, drift and pace cars.
Formula one fans maybe?
I don't thinkits coming till 2011!!
hahahahahahahahaha........oh the codemasters rep was serious....oh ummmm well um....well........yey F1......lol
its only becuz it comes out a good amount of time before gt5 comes out
