Gran Turismo Sport Breaks the 15 Million Players Milestone

It is when you're confusing facts with lies

Keep it up though. You won't last long if you can't even be subtle with your trolling
What lies? That gts wasn't in the bargain bin a month after launch? That's absolutely true. And it's funny you're only questioning me when someone else posted the exact thing about Europe.

Just because a game has been discounted doesn’t mean people are going to buy it; people still have to want to play the game. For example, just because a game is on game pass doesn’t mean it’s going to get 15 million players.

Well there certainly is a correlation. Far more people played gts because of the steep discounts. I don't think anyone would argue that player counts would be as high as they are if Sony didn't discount gts so quickly.

And same for game pass. All else being equal, you would expect a game to have higher player counts if it were in game pass. Lower barriers to entry do matter.

Mate, every game gets discounted, but few hit these numbers. There’s no argument really.

And? All games benefit from lower prices, in terms of copies sold or player counts. There's no argument there either.

But that's all beside the point. Gts was deeply discounted shortly after launch, in the US and across Europe. And of course these discounts helped with player counts.

Sorry, I’m not sure what you are trying to achieve, other than to undermine GTS player count. This thread really has nothing to do with how games being discounted can skew sales. Maybe you should make your own thread about this Very concerning issue of yours.

I replied to someone that made the comment that gts was discounted quickly in Europe by saying yep the same thing happened in the US to have one poster jump down my throat about facts. It is what it is.

There is one thing that i really respect about GTS: I have rarely seen marketing for it while Sony literally spammed advertising like crazy for Uncharted, Spider-Man or God of War and it still hit 16m players. That's impressive, because if anything helps sale numbers it's massive marketing.
 
Stay in your own lane and stop trying to further shit up threads with lies and trolling then
Dude, stop. His post was simply saying that the pricing in the US was apparently similar to in the US.

At which point you immediately jump all over the guy and calling him a troll. There's absolutely nothing about his post that could be considered trolling, unless your disdain of him is the result of previous behavior.

His post history + the fact that he only posted in the thread to downplay GT + hyperbolic barbin bin comment = obvious troll

Some of you guys are talking about GT or Twisted Metal being something to counter FH... How about Driveclub 2 or a new Motorstorm developed by Sumo Digital?

And nice numbers for GTS. One of the best platinum trophies that I go. A ton of fun.

It must have taken some doing to get that GTS platinum! I dread to think how many hours I’ve spent just getting to level 40 - not to mention the online trophies - I think I’ve only managed one pole position 😆

Basically my track was Autopolis with a GT4 car. Mostly Scirocco since it is not a heavy car an is really good at corners. Best track for 92 victories and 65 poles.

Also a lot of rage quit after some idiots drive off track, so I have more time to try get a better time.


I guess it took me 2 years to platinum it. But nothing compared to FFX witch took me over 4 years lol.

The funny thing is that me too. Yet loved play GTS and Tekken 7 online. The only 2 games that I played online.

Pretty sure most of those numbers are made up of Sony employees
Sony's been building their studios up with contracts stipulating employees must buy their published games. Some employees don't even work on software, they just buy games.

All games have price discounts after launch but some sells other not.

The discussion is really weird.

How many people bought Destruction All Stars after the discounts?

Pretty sure those numbers must be pretty bad compared to other full priced games like Ratchet for example.

P.S I would like to add that I hated seeing so many bundles with Destruction All Stars. I rejected many bundles with good games because it was bundled with that one.

I updated the break down per Country if anybody is interested.


US is over 2 million players.
UK, FR and DE are the others countries over 1 million players.

BR has 563,287 players and sadly I'm not included in there because my PSN account was before Sony created the Brasilian PSN so I'm included in US numbers :D

Same here.

Sony should allow to merge 2 accounts. Too many games and trophies to ignore my main account.

Yeap there is a time that I researched about transfer / linking accounts or just change the locale.

I should even pay like the name change thing that is useless to me.

While we still awaits for Gran Turismo 7 I thought it would be interesting to dust off GT Sport for a test. Here's every PlayStation console it was released on compared.
Framerate test was done on newest build of TRdrop (v1.2.0) with setting I'm using for older builds.

As I just got me a PS5, I needs me some GT7!

Was there ever a reason why GT Sport was never named GT7?

Kind of weird for Sony’s 2nd most popular Playstation (PS4) to have only gotten 1 game in over 8 years and just getting a new one over a year after the PS5 launched.

Strange to say the least.

Yes. GT Sport lacked any sort of proper Single Player Campaign that the rest of the series has had (except the one on PSP). Its focus is online racing and they later on added single player events, but it's still not the same.

They probably saved 7 if sport didn't work out

Like pointed by another GAF the new trailers have some more data.

New numbers from PD 14 Million


There are some difference in what PD account as "drivers" and the number of PSN Accounts that at least fire up the game once.... that one is a bit over 15 million.

I can't spot which 1 million accounts PD is not using in their 14 million drivers.
