DLC Sales Numbers
Posted 11/16/2011 9:09 AM Post a reply Quote this post View Kerr's info
I was curious about Gran Turismo 5 DLC sales numbers, so I started looking around. I couldn't find anything reliable. Has anyone else found information on this topic?

I tried texting KGB (542542) but they only gave me the sales for GT5 in general, not for the DLC... Sorry, I tried... Maybe a site (G4TV.com) might be able to help, they have TV news shows that delve into things like this...

So much for KGB... they probably use the same tools we all have access to (Google, library database searches, etc.). I'm familiar with G4, didn't see them as a potential source really.

Well, you never know... Have you tried to call Sony or PD? I believe you can see who rated it on the PS store itself...

I haven't. It's not a burning drop-dead need, was just curious.

That would be kinda cool, some special cars branded with games and stuff, but then again that's kinda corny...

ok, went on the PS3 to take a look... yes I know you can't gauge how accurate the sales are based off of ratings but it's a start...
5.00 max rating
Whole Enchilada, 4.06@1419 votes
Course Pack, 4.04@611
Paint, 3.85@362
Car, 3.98@434
Gear, 3.84@307

and counting...

so we know at least 1419x$11.99=$17013.81 give or take a few 100s... so lets say the population that voted represented 1/3 the people who bought it, rounding #s for easier math at $17,000x3=$51,000~

let's go further and say they have the models but need to repaint and retune the cars, = oh about 3 months to create? ok, say a 5 man team @ what $40 an hour at what? 8 hours a day (that way we dont factor in OT) and 5 days a week... $40xhours in the week+maybe expenses are around $20,000-$35,000 so say top end they just made oh, about $15,000???

oops, forgot to factor a 5 man team @$40 would be $200, well now it looks like they lost money lol

Good deduction Draghon, but you forgot that the US has the cheapest DLC, meaning that if you take into account the fact that there are other nationalities paying more money than 11.99 in USD, you can raise a conservative estimate at least 10%. (Assuming the PSN isn't just giving you nation specific data... I'll go look myself shortly)
I think its only giving you nation specific data;
Bundle Pack - 4.74 (1856) - $18.95 (AUD)
Car Pack - 4.42 (1508) - $12.95 (AUD)
Course Pack - 4.41 (2002) - $6.95 (AUD)
Paint Pack - 4.27 (1037) - $3.45 (AUD)
Gear Pack - 4.32 (893) - $3.45 (AUD)
(This fits the trend I was expecting)

Interestingly (from your estimates) the total units for each of the single packs only just leads the "Whole Enchilada" pack (1700 vs 1400). I'd have thought that the demand for people only buying tracks/cars would have been far greater than the demand for combined. The small lead may be due to the clever pricing of cars+tracks such that you may as well go the whole thing.
My full schedule B-spec guide and setups to the FGT (GT4)

100% all gold in GT4, GT5 and GT6. At last.

good deduction that i was being conservative, I didn't realize that the sum of all = the whole... but I was saying give or take a few $100s for that reason of pricing in other countries...

I doubt the PD developers are getting OT, unfortunately.

I wonder what the real vote vs. purchase ratio is though. As far as participation vs. consumption is concerned, the ratio here and in most online communities is about 1 in 10.

I hate to change a thing because things are still the best here on the Vault, mabye someone has already brought it up, and it's like that for a reason? Here's my idea for the GT3 Latest setup list, that name looks a little obsolete mabye somthing like and or, setup/updates or updates and latest updates!! Somthing fresh!! Just thinking about it If you chang that then you have to change the rest, I guess at this point it's what can change verses what can not, in other words it's perfect!!
I know the rides are hot but for now you have to go to my garage for updates, look for "set up 8690", After I'm back on my Vacation I can look at the set up's I miss playing this game, the rush of smoking the tires !! >>>>>>Sony-Dual-Analog-Controller<<<<<<<

Buying the GT5 car pack seems to be a waste of my good $$. I don't care for any of the cars and who really wants to drive a Toyota Prius Touring Car. For real why the @#$% would they put that in a car pack. I want more a American cars there are plenty of Japan made cars in this game already. Big disappointment Crybaby
