one million individual gamertags are associated with the game which is a huge portion of the reported 2.5 million gamers that own an Xbox One.

Dead Rising is not far behind I suppose. Forza 5 seems to have gotten a boost.

When you're stuck with games such as Ryse and DR3 you have no choice but buy this crap

forza got a boost because they're selling them for 40 dollars. it'll be free this holiday

Great numbers reflect a great game. I love it and cant wait to play more tomorrow.

Good for forza. By all accounts it's a great game

Hey, I am Sony fan and I must say Forza did good

Although that music makes me feel like I am playing resident evil

That's exactly what I did...purchased Forza and DR3 when they were $40. It's called being a smart consumer and a sale is a sale for both the dev and MS.

I'm so disappointed when I go to the stores and see Forza on display. It's so boring. I guess they can't put DR on display since kids will see. Possibly the same reason for Ryse too I guess. I just find Forza so bland. Especially as a demo.

Also, what happened to the crowd in Forza? I was expecting something a little more dynamic. But they're still pretty much copy-paste cardboard cut-outs. I was expecting next-gen to polish these details in a racing sim.

Yeah and the transformers movies raked in hundreds of millions of dollars on its opening weekend......that doesn't make it a good movie though.

Forza is one of the best launch titles and one of the best franchises around. Transformers is a terrible movie (the stupid, but enjoyable kind of terrible). I agree that sales don't equal quality, but the comparison would work better if we were using Call of Duty, not Forza

best game in the highest rated racing series of the past 10+ years.

___

In no way does this this mean Forza 5 has gone platinum - individual gamertags does not mean units sold.

According to a video by YouTube user Robert Cram it looks as if the Xbox One exclusive Forza Motorsport 5 has hit the one million milestone just six weeks after the launch of the console which is a pretty impressive number.

one million online doesnt mean one million sold........

could have multiple users using the same game like me and my roomates do

Ryse = Graphics king by every game review, DR3 rated higher then anything the PS4 has to offer LOL.

too bad graphics dont produce good game play

since Ryse is rated lower than Knack

They both scored a 4.0 Ryse and Knack are rated the same.

(on a personal note, I had always thought a 4.0 or anything rated lower than 5.0 would be a game that is fundamentally broken. I cannot speak for Knack but Ryse is not fundamentally broken - just poorly executed.)

#18 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (4060 posts) -

Wonder how many of them are from bundles.

Sad that a rushed launch game stuffed with microtransactions, graphical shortcuts and less features than Forza 4 can do so well.

#19 Posted by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

1 million gamer tags =/= 1 million sold.

Some players have multiple gamer tags just like people on PSN do.

I am really glad to see turn10 games get some numbers on the board. great studios

#22 Posted by Murderstyle75 (4165 posts) -

@stereointegrity:

Especially now that you no longer have to pay for each gamertag seperate. 1 million users does not in any way mean 1 million sold.

Correction, its the best looking title on ANY NEXT GEN SYSTEM. It makes the PS4 look terrible that a 900p games looks better then there 1080p games LOL.

Does it crush your spirit to know Gamespot, IGN, Eurogamer, Adam Sessler, GameTrailers, Rev3gaming, Digital Foundry, Game informer and others (ALL the top gaming website experts), all award Ryse as "having hands down the best graphics of next gen."?

Even your own poll says Ryse. Your console is weak and worthless.... I know, I own a PS4, its a POS

Good catch. I was wondering why other sites weren't reporting it.

Numbers must still be good.

@NFJSupreme:

Forza is a great game for people who don't know how to play racing games. The game has so many driving assists, it practically plays itself. And if you still can't handle it and don't understand the suggested line, there is always rewind. Forza is to racing games what Fable 3 was to RPG's. It feels like somebody is holding your hand the entire time.

#26 Posted by Syn_Valence (1348 posts) -

Err this doesn't mean it sold a million, people can have multiple accounts......

You can turn all that stuff off y'know.

Jumping ship to a $500 cablebox with no games for something that got lower scores than GT6.

Nah, son.

Sensible people stopped paying attention to paid critics after the LA Noire debacle.

get out of here with that trash. It's objectively worse in almost every merit where it counts than its predecessors. DLC cars up the ass, less tracks, less cars, still no weather or night racing (not always present, but they've made some attempt before), and no auction house. You are a problem with gaming if you seriously believe prettier graphics for a system with far superior hardware and slightly better AI make this a better game.

Congrats on worshipping the COD of racing games.

Not surprised, since it's the best game on the system. DR3 will be next.

why don't you get your head out of your ass. The only reason why some here are debating Ryse graphics is because the same guy keeps derailing every thread by trying to claim ownage because some sites claim it has the best console graphics. I know you keep ignoring this, but if you are going to say anything at all, go tell him off instead of attacking the responses, dipshit.

#40 Posted by MrXboxOne (742 posts) -

@GrenadeLauncher: jealousy. It's a beautiful thing LOL. Ryse just simply looks better then any next gen title. Everyone agrees.

#41 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (4060 posts) -

MrsShitboxDone's thin reality-denying bubble slowly deflating so he has to repeat it to himself to try and keep it pumped up. ^_^

#42 Posted by Sweenix (5397 posts) -

lol, where's the sales?

#43 Posted by Desmonic (13383 posts) -

Wait, is it 1 million sales or 1 million different user tags registered/using the game? There's a difference.

If it's the former then congrats to T10! It's always a risky move to release a game with a hardware launch, so it's good that it didn't effect them sales-wise.

If it's the latter then it's a bit irrelevant since people can have different accounts and use just a single copy of the game.

Aye, kinda like Knack and Killzone. Atleast xboners have more crap to choose from amiright?

#45 Posted by _Matt_ (8866 posts) -

Well since this is gamertags, not units, then units sold is likely much lower, perhaps around the the 700k mark.

To say this game was pretty much thrown at Europeans buying the XB1 that number is a little underwhelming

#46 Posted by ankor77 (940 posts) -

@_Matt_:

Fifa was also an option for europe and many chose that. Also should we discredit any ps4 games sales since half of us all went to target to do the buy2 get 1free deal which xb1 did not get?

I agree this does not equal 1 million sold yet but its still impressive. The core game is great. I would appreciate some more tracks in the future as a patch or dlc

Don't get me wrong, it's a good number, sure; but to say that it's the highest rated XB1 game, it was thrown in completely free with 50% of all European day 1 XB1 consoles, and one of the biggest advertised titles of the next gen, 800k odd units seems a little.... unimpressive in a way if that makes sense.

Still, kudos to T10 I guess.

nope, i play both forza and gt and sure as hell im not paying for Forza 5 when it lacks something as key as Nordschleif...what racing gmae in this day and age even does that honestly its such a key track for a lot of people including myself.

I'll wait til FM6 to take a plunge with the one, for the simple reason is gt6 is getting dlc, fm4 still does its job and frankly both next gen machines are far far too expensive right now.

#49 Edited by ankor77 (940 posts) -

@_Matt_: also considering some of the hate forza got for the lack of content and microtransactions im surprised the numbers are this high
