Wait, so it requires the connection because they're worried about people cheating in the single player portion of the game. Am I reading this right? If we don't have PS+ we can't go online. So than the check is meaningless.

You can still go online without PS+. You don't need PS+ to sign in to PSN.

Well, that sucks.



Yeahhh, this is not looking good.Especially with this internet connection requirement even for single player stuff.

But you would have to have internet connection.What if your region has a bad internet reception?Or your internet is down in the area for any reason?

Its not good for the player any way you slice it.



So this is the the result of four years of work........huh. Sony cut off the wrong racing studio last year.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Did Gran Turismo ever have a "real career mode"?

You don't need PS+ to go online, or to connect online in games for that matter.
Take Nioh for example. You could still access online features in the game without PS+, like the graves of other players who died, or the teahouse weekly online clan rankings.
It's just that the online multiplayer features are manually locked behind the PS+ paywall. But if a game requires you to do something specific online during single player modes, they won't require PS+ for that.
There have even been games that let you play online multiplayer without PS+ on occasion. (Some Beta tests)



Game is called GT "Sports".. with the sport mode being the focus.  What other game gives you an opportunity to earn an actual FIA racing license, recognized and valid in 22 countries? That's what real skills will do for you in this game.. it's the actual driving test.  Campagin is basically prep work for the real meat of the game.. sport mode, where races can matter to some as well as how good you are at utilizing real driving skills to win races, thus the online aspect where races and progress will be monitored.  With a game clearly focused on multiplayer, I see no issue with the "campaign mode".  Online focused was made known when the game was first announced. Thus the "real driving simulator" reign shall continue.   



Man.. I hate it when your girl has to leave my place to come back to you..

Considering I got into GT with GT6, and I'm still working on it, probably for quite some time, I think I'll pass this. Nothing about Sport sounds especially interesting to me.

What region doesn't have internet? I think if you don't have internet, gaming is a lesser worry.

I can see why campaign mode might appear to be a misnomer - it sounds like career mode. But this is not GT7. I wish I could get an Uncharted Spprts with the only focus being the multiplayer component.
