The argument about licences and such doesnt stand - im already really good at racing games. Being taught how to suck eggs in a racing game doesn't constitute a single player experience.


I'm fairly casual but enthusiastic - I use a pad with auto gears and some TC - and I have little interest in racing online. I played some forza 4 with a dedicated group a few years ago and was smoked by the alien drivers all the time which was pretty demoralising, and playing with randoms is like Burnout. I respect the decision to push for the iRacing model but not with a flagship series like GT.

Guess i'll go back and add emulating GT 2-4 and the 2002 concept spinoff to my racing backlog.

Tbh Gran Turismo with a good online component I'm all over.

The GT single player experience has never been much, the AI is poor at best, most races just a 'start last and try and catch everyone before the end' kind of deal with the difficulty scripted based on how far you start behind or what cars the AI begins with. Not like the single player in this is any different is it?

GT single player has never been about decent race strategy or anything like that. Even on the most recent games where you have the Championship series with points per race, the AI qualifies in the same order every race, finishes in the same order every race with the only difference being where the player finishes. :lol:

Don't get me wrong, I love GT, but the GT Sport single player isn't all that different to what GT has always had.

The former Evolution Studios employees must be just wondering what the strawberry float they had to do to not all end up being fired when they look at this game and think we had online, a decent single player campaign and we had something GT has never had in a fun game.

After years in development hell and watching other games come and go they manage to make a Gran Turismo game with almost zero single player component and being Gran Turismo it'll be joyless because hey it must be fantastic to be Kimi Raikkonen and turn up to the podium like your dog just died or he found out his new kitchen installation will be delayed.
I actually quite like the GT games but they're fun in a "Wow, I'm managing to shave 0.347 seconds from my Nurburgring lap time in a Honda Civic I'm well into the top 50 GRCade players now!!!!!!!!!" rather than fun in a "strawberry floating hell that crash was all sorts of awesome" as we have a 8 player GRCade race and all decide to screw each other over on the 3rd corner of lap 1 kind of way.

I will rent this and have most likely 2 hours of messing about with a few super cars before remembering that I'm really incredibly poor at racing games and send it back.
Good effort Polyphony that's 5 years well spent.

Access Playstation's video on the livery editor is mostly them marvelling at what forza has done with its editor for years, but they have confirmed custom image uploads, which should make up for the 300 layer limit. Now i'm actually tempted as this would speed up designing stuff immensely compared to forza - its a shame the surrounding game is quite minimal.

And watch the GT fanboys make every excuse under the sun for it and proclaim it as the greatest racing sum of all time.

Makes me laugh all the amazing gifs and replays of it you see, which look incredible yet it still looks pants in actual gameplay.

It may not be to your liking but, the fact is, Gran Turismo is more than a videogame. It's the stark difference between east and west developers. The west likes the whizz-bang, the east like to curate. There's just so much more love, care and attention in Japanese games. [/cooldawn]

Making a swastika using the ingame editor is easy enough, i'm expecting hentai, goatse and other malodorous gooseberry fool. Turn 10 have had years of experience policing the Forza community and that only has an ingame editor with no custom images allowed so it remains to be seen if Polyphony/Sony have planned enough to do the same. There's been no real info on how the uploads work, whether you can load them from a usb stick or have to upload them to a central server, the latter making policing/banning people much easier.

Also the menus include what look like driver overalls and helmet painting too, which is a neat step. With all the above i can make better designs in a fraction of the time it takes on Forza; prepare sponsor logos etc on photoshop then stick them in the game in minutes instead of spending hours on some lettering.

Hnnng i'm going to end up getting this, I can tell, despite being bobbins at online racing.

GT3 still has the best sounding cars out of the entire series but a major improvement with GT Sport

It really does look terrific :o . I'm not into racing simulations at all - I prefer arcades racers - but these graphics are quite astounding.

i still think Project Car's 2 will be the better game visual wise PD are known for having excellent graphics content wise and overall car rooster wise PC2 is far better and less sterile then GT.

I'm sold if that's in the game ;)

I think the problem is that both games seem to be focusing on the same sports/GT3 cars and the same tracks - for me there's only so many times i'm willing to buy the same stuff before I get kind of bored of doing so.

PC2 does have alot of classic old skool cars which are not featured in GT Sport like this Audi and has some great tracks like Long Beach not featured in GT. The Ford GT40 LM, Toyota GT-One

Yeap, and as I always say, Sony shut down the wrong developer. :x

The fact that we never got to see a Motorstorm 4 on PS4, and instead get another dull GT game is a tragedy.

Apparently Sony think people don't want fun driving games with a multiplayer that keeps people coming back for long periods like Driveclub and Motorstorm.
