As compelling as I have always found the Gran Turismo series sitting down to play GT6 seemed like a daunting experience; a feeling compounded even more so by the fact that it had not been long since GT5 had been doing the rounds in my PS3 for more hours than I care to mention. Add to this a horribly slow day-one update I began to question if my Gran Turismo honeymoon was about to come to an end.
Rather embarrassingly for Microsoft even a price cut and a copy of Titanfall thrown in can’t save them from getting a sound kicking from their nearest rival – even in their own backyard.
Earlier this week Sony had announced that they had sold over 7 million PS4 units globally and today the latest NPD figures reveal that they have also outsold all other systems in the US for the third month running. Not bad for a system that has no actual games worth playing, proving that those all important exclusives don’t mean dick.
Microsoft pissing everyone off and his dog at last years E3 very likely helped in turning Sony’s fortunes around in the US as well no doubt.
To date MS have shipped 5 million units, not sold. The last figure revealed was 3.9 million sold worldwide since the price cut and Titanfall bundle. That’s 3 million less than the PS4. Quite a number and one that points to Sony seemingly having this generation wrapped up before it’s really even begun.
Plenty of damage control going on across gaming forums this morning I can tell you…
Hungry like the wolf…
