ahha zero, why dont you compare the meta critic reviews for Forza 2-4 vs GT 5??

@ Jelly Jelly

You are talking nonsense! Every fanboy is worse, PS3 fanboys are no worse than Xbox fanboys.PS3 fans where all over the Gears articles, and in EVERY uncharted article are Xbox fanboys....

They are all bad

Finally someone speaking the truth around here, I will probably get disagreed but a fanboy is a fanboy no matter how you cut it and no matter what their preferred platform is.

It just goes to show you what fanboy you are once you start attacking or supporting a particular group/platform over the other.

I mean look at those sales, gamers should be happy because it goes to show you that after 6 years this current console generation is still freaking healthy.

JaredH2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

This is such bad sales. Unlike ps3 exclusives obviously no 360 exclusive can have length in sales. And half of these sales are obviously bundles and half of the sales are from the UK and no where else in Europe because I know this because I know. This game wouldn't have been at around 5 on the NPD for last month either for first week alone.

Oh wait I'm being sarcastic while half of you aren't.

good numbers but by n4g logic they are pathetic for an hyped exclusive....

in the mean time let me go make an article about why xbox exclusives besides halo and gears don't do numbers through the roof and hence a huge "FLOP"

Impressive 1st week sales. You see guys? Sequels are SUPPOSED to sell better than their predecessors, not sell less and less by chunks with each iteration.

trouble_bubble2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

What do you mean you see? Is this law? Halo sells less with every title, yet no one cares. Lets see where Forza is in 2 months after the holiday busy season with COD, BF, AC, Skyrim, Saints, Batman, NFS etc before we start saying "told ya so".

green2220d ago

Fantastic sales for the 1st week. Should easily go on to meet and exceed the 4million copies of its predecessor.

Wikkid6662220d ago

Probably will sell around 2 million. Remember F3 was bundled like crazy with 360s.

green2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

What exclusive has not been bundled these days? Uncharted, Alan Wake, Killzone, Halo, Resistance, GT etc have all been bundled.

You might want to undermine the sucess of a game because it is bundled but to developers it is a massive deal to them. Just look at how Bizzarre creations were angry with Microsoft for having a Forza 2 bundle instead of a PGR4 bundle in 2007.

Wikkid6662220d ago

My point is a bundled sale isn't the same. It definitely inflates things. And may even help future sales... but also look at the used bin. Bundled games galore.

So my point is the game will actually sell around 2 million copies... which is solid for any exclusive game.

Bathyj2220d ago

I never understood why being in a bundle is seen as a negitive as far as sales go.

People trying to down play the sale will argue that the game only sold because you were getting it slightly cheaper than usual because you got it when you were buying a console.

I say, people wanted to play the game that much, they were willing to but a console they didnt previously have, in order to do it.

If anything if a plus its bundled, not a negative.

BlmThug2220d ago

most popular games are bundled mate. If we went by your logic then most popular games will have less sales.

Only if ms takes pity on it and bundles it like f3. If not, I don't think so.

WHAT GOES FOR ONE MUST GO FOR THE OTHER HERE ON N4G
----------------------------- ----------------------------

hyped exclusives must do 1million + first month to be a non-floper. xmas time is coming up and i have no doubt this will be going into 2million+ by 2012. forza has the legs, it is turn 10's best effort yet...amazing

xer0 i think your in the wrong article GT5 is that way --------------->

Biggest2220d ago

Why didn't you write the opposite comment as well A_Troll?

OMG!! Didn't sell a billion in the first week? FLOP!! What's the use of so many exclusives if they don't sell TRILLIONS in the first week?

A_Troll_From_Ign2220d ago

What I was saying was, there has been a lot of critisism against titles on other platforms not doing a million first week and being called flop so I'm just carrying the logic over. I live forza motorsport and played it non stop, just using the logic on this site and applying it to forza.

IQUITN4G2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

This game feels much improved from F3. F3 was an excellent game but here i really get a better sense of when the car is struggling to grip etc. That better sense of what the car is doing translates into a more fun experience than iv'e had before and i imagine word of mouth will do wonders for it
