The problem is most people don't want a hyper real online racing game where racing rules are strictly enforced and you have to worry about tire wear or suspension set-ups.
Yes there's a few that do and yes Gran Turismo should cater to them but also offer modes where you can have all the visual goodness while having racing that isn't so structured for people who just want a good race after work.

If you want a good race the last place you want to be is GT :dread: The ai has always been a joke and you'll be playing against console plebs with gamepads online

I think the name of the game gave away that you owned it.

I've not been following the recent development of GT Sport. Does it not have all the features of a full GT game?


It's a GT prologue game under a different name, but the hard-core GT fans will try to tell you otherwise.


Probably fuelled by kaz's statements about it being the new direction for gt and that odd video where they slag off their own older games for being car collectathons. Have they never played a racing game online before? Its always total mayhem rather than the srs bsnss they want to think it is.



The Turn 10 team can turn around a new FORZA game in two years (even across last gen to this gen). I get that GT is regarded as the deeper game with more detail so would take longer. But over four years for graphics, physics and online improvements - I would think this should be a full featured game.

Thats my point - according to kaz gt sport is fully featured, just not with the features a lot of people will be expecting.

A possibly interesting development for Pro owners...

TechRadar wrote:AMD’s new graphics card tech is good news for PS4 Pro owners

AMD recently announced its newest series of high end graphics cards, RX Vega, which introduce a number of new technologies on the PC platform. However, it’s since emerged that these technologies could lead to massive performance boosts on the PS4 Pro.

The PS4 Pro includes a chip manufactured by AMD based on its Polaris architecture, which is how the technology is able to come to the platform.

However despite the fact that the PS4 Pro’s upcoming competitor, the Xbox One X, is also built using AMD technology, Microsoft has opted not to include the new functionality.

In essence, the new technology allows for double the amount of operations to be conducted when less precision is required by switching from full-float to half-float operations.

In other words when 32-bits of precision are not required, the GPU could instead run two 16-bit operations in parallel, thus effectively doubling processing throughput.

For example, a shader may be calculating colors where 32-bits of accuracy is unnecessary and in this instance could drop to 16-bits to save on performance.

One developer we spoke to, Dan Horbury at Mad Fellows Games, described this technology as being like "hyper-threading for GPUs". Hyper-threading has previously been used on CPUs to allow unused parts of a processor to act in parallel to perform more actions simultaneously.

Prior to the PS4 Pro’s launch, system architect Mark Cerny revealed that the technique could effectively lead to a doubling in computational performance from 4.2 teraflops to 8.4 teraflops. For reference, the Xbox One X has 6 teraflops of graphical performance and will not support rapid packed math.

However, Horbury cautioned that although performance would be increased, he didn't think it would quite be doubled. This is because the overhead involved with splitting operations into two 16-bit floats would eat into the performance gains.

It’s also important to note that this increased performance would only be available when 32-bits of precision are not required.

Developers will also need to code for the new technology in order to take advantage of it. AMD has revealed that upcoming shooters Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Far Cry 5 will do so on PC, but it’s currently unclear how large the support base will be when it comes to the console.

When the Xbox One X saw its big reveal at E3 this year, Microsoft proudly claimed that it was the most powerful console ever made. However thanks to Rapid Packed Math the gap between the two 4K consoles might be much smaller than it initially appeared.

16-bits omg not more indie gooseberry fool.

I can see the new blurb now:

PS4 Pro: STILL the most powerful console* on the planet.

*When devs are able/can be arsed to use Rapid Packed Maths.

That feature will be used by exactly zero multiplatform games.

Out of curiosity I decided to ask Cash Converters how much they would offer for a brand new, sealed PS4 Pro.

£190.

Only £49.99 for a strawberry floating controller.

Controller prices can strawberry float off these days. Looking at you switch.
