Yup. I think we'll see it pop back up in December.
The real story here that we'll probably never know (but those in the games industry can do back of napkin math) is what they forecast the game to sell, and what GT5's P&L ultimately looks like with their sustain plan via Prologue.
It might take a few months GT 4 sold 620k in it's first month and it's LTD non bundle was 2.5 million at end of 2009 .
Still no matter what i expect GT 5 to perform much lower than other GT games .
Took to long to come out , bad launch , on decline , smaller user base but the one that matter the most is GT5 feels like half a game and allot of stuff wrong with it .
That's a fair enough observation... but let's be real. How many games have released with mediocre-bad numbers when releasing in the last few days of the month, and then went on to chart highly in the next release?
No (sane) people are questioning GT's long term ability to sell... but rather Sony's ability to build hype or even let people know the game was out in the wild?
Like with the Wii at first they're glad [Kinect] brings more people in who will become Playstation players in the future.
Unless their idea of these people getting the PS3 as a BR player is now stomped by the cheap players and that their ads to seduce the new customers are in fact more aimed to SDF idiots than anyone else.
The Fable 3 commercials were great and seem to have worked extremely well, I remember seeing those commercials a lot. I remember seeing it for the first time, and before the words Fable came out, I was thinking to myself, wow that looks like a pretty epic game.
It got talked about earlier on. Really, not much to say, not real surprising(imo at least), it's a very good, if not great game, I can't knock it in any way. Activision is doing their thing right now, and they do it VERY well
