THC CELL2539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

That's just over half a million thats good, i bet that's more than halo or call of duty sales can rack up in France

Shanks2539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

@OT

*runs around the house like a 5yo yelling GT5-GT5-GT5*

Vroom! Vroom!

Anarki2539d ago

They best ship atleast 1kk GT5's to UK alone... cause that's how much it's gonna sell, easily......

units2539d ago

555.000 shipped people

raztad2539d ago

@units

"Sony SENDS 555.000 GT5 copies to France"

It is a pretty obvious title by itself and doesnt need clarification from x-fans.

The Wood2539d ago

its why it says 'SENDS' in the title you numpty

troll elsewhere or at least try harder

tinybigman2539d ago

i think most of us here has come to the realization that Units is a bleeding idiot. i mean do you honestly believe that all 550k units sent to the stores in france will just stay sitting on the shelves?

god take your head out of your ass and stop being so damn stupid.

elmaton982538d ago

Are you retarded man they wouldn't have shipped half a mill copies on gt5 to France alone if it wasn't for people who has preorder the game

ExplosionSauce2538d ago (Edited 2538d ago )

But I'm confused by what's going on with the 'units' guy above...

BISHOP-BRASIL2538d ago

Yeah, I know they will release it in my country (Brazil) two or three days after NA release and, just as GOW or HR also this year, Sony isn't making a great service here, they only send copies enough to make up for pre-orders and barely first week... This time I'm not waiting through, going to pre-order GT5 at Sony Style tomorow.

Also the Move Sports Champions bundle just start appearing around here for (believe it) 599R$ (almost 360US$), MS also just officially released Kinect for the very same price, so I'm not going motion control that soon as this kind of money will grant my GT5 experience a decent wheel! LOL

THC CELL2539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

so estimate EU are looking at over 4 million sales alone.
People forget how big GT series really is.

Shanks2539d ago

Europe is gonna be all over it that's for sure.

vsr2539d ago

Agreed, I think Total EMEAA region lifetime sales will be 10 million plus alone except Dual-American Continents.

evrfighter2538d ago

europe is Gran Turismo's biggest market. US seems to be just about over racing titles.

fishd2539d ago

GT 5 : P sold 2,940,000 copies in europe

NecrumSlavery2539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

A demo too.

We can all agree that US has sunk into a sad state of FPS addiction, but I am sure that GT5 will do very well in US, escpecially all the marketing and NASCAR campaigning(which is a really big deal).

But this is the full blown game coming in a less than a month. EURO and JAPAN alone will probably put GT5 sales in 7-8 million alone with in the first year, not including US.

You all have to realize that even though europe has gotten into shooters. GT5 Racing is a huge thing in Europe and this is going to be very very big.

phinch2538d ago

that's a mad amount of numbers for a demo....

snp2539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

They forget how big GT is, but they also forget how big in Europe the Playstation brand is. Say, four countries alone - France, Germany, Spain, Italy - there's alone over a quarter of a billion people (all Western, with gaming cultures,and with Western sized disposable incomes)

It's bizarre this whole 'lets dismiss Europe' bit that directly and indirectly gets regurgitated consistently in this place.

I'm not sure how it got any traction, or continues to... Though i suspect it'll happen again with this title - all the nonsense sites probably under-representing ('estimating' - cough) the games sales/success, and a whole bunch of doggerel about how it's failed as a flow-on from that nonsense etc. etc. It'd be nice to think otherwise, but i reckon you can pretty much count on it.

Anyway, enough with the negativity. Good to hear it's getting near.

Baka-akaB2539d ago

Well i'm not surprised , we might need a more european centric n4g equivalent maybe .

Ever noticed how on a daily basis there are even ads/article about deals for store that are mostly if not only us ?

ChronoJoe2539d ago (Edited 2539d ago )

I'm British and I see deals for UK stuff sometimes, on here.

I know some people like to forget about Europe, and Japan when NPD figures roll around, but aside that it's not bad here. :P

fossilfern2539d ago

People tend to underestimate the size of the EU alone never mind just the continent.

R0me2538d ago

I wish they would start a big marketing campaign.
I only see move advertise and Microsoft making advertise for cod: bo and fallout: NV even if they are multiplat :D

Amazon germany lists gt5 on place 5
4. is ps3 320gb move starter pack
3. wow: cataclysm
2. COD:BO for ps3
1. COD:BO for pc

skip2mylou2538d ago

Think I'm gonna opt for the Signature Edition. :D

camelflequi2539d ago

1 collectors edition for me ^^

IrishYamato2539d ago

We've waited so long for this game. They should give us free cars.

DrillaKid2539d ago

Doesnt the sig edition come with a chance to win an SLS?

No FanS Land2539d ago

yeah it does, but it's an european exclusive contest.

cb4g2538d ago

I'm Australian and I've preordered the Signature Edition!

No SLS for me I guess...sigh

PeZuS2539d ago

Well, you get 1000+ cars for FREE when you buy the game ;)

mastiffchild2539d ago

Alan Wake didn't even give us a free flashlight and Too Human just a pile of poo so don't moan too loud.

No FanS Land2539d ago

mudavyne's most recent album gave you a flashlight.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2539d ago

You are comparing both new IPs to the most popular franchise and system seller?

skip2mylou2538d ago

@alex with the hype dennis dyack gave to too human with the decade+ years to make a game it better be good instead of shit!. and alan wake was hyped by both MS and remedy PR and it still turned out pretty bad
