Isn't this old news? My friend was telling me this weeks ago lol.

I'm not too bummed, it's 2017, not many people would be struggling to find an internet connection. Plus it's GT, the god of all racing games! I'm just excited to jump back in after skipping 6.

It'll certainly find the audience. Although the info is somewhat old, we've not seen it in full detail like this, AFAIK. We'll see how it turns out. I personally would have preferred a full fledged title (particularly so far into the gen - and I prefer to play driving/racing titles alone), but we'll see how this goes.

Wait, is this correct?

7. Go one step closer with PlayStation VR

Want to take it to that extra level? Then strap yourself in and check out Gran Turismo Sport in VR, featured within the “Arcade mode”…

Here you’ll be able to go head to head (1:1) against another AI opponent in over 135 cars on 27 new and classic tracks that will take you from the Japanese metropolis to the Mexican-American border.


I thought VR was only supported on a thrid of the tracks. Is that a typo or did they manage to include all tracks for VR?



Just for a quick clarification.
I won't be able to play without internet?

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

The problem isn't internet availabilty. For me, the issue is that when the studio shuts down game server, my game will be nothing more than a 60 bucks frisbee. So, at least, the online dependency must be justificable.

Let me just use The Division as an example. Really, I don't see why can't I lay it offline. Ok, dark zones are PvP, but the main map is just a big area with simple missions against AI enemies. The only real player interaction here is that people can join me and help me do the missions. But it really isn't something that should be mandatory.

Cutting off the studio that produces their biggest IP probably wouldn't be the most sound business decision.

I would say that they just should increase the size of Poliphony, it's a relatively small studio for the kind of game they are doing. And they should consider some changes in the higher management positions, because the output of the studio right now is not good compared to other internal teams.

GT6 lacked a lot of content from GT5 (no endurances is a good example). Now, 4 years later, it doesn't seem like they are doing real progress.

PS.: And, of course, cutting off the studio is a ridiculous suggestion.

You can do time trials and split screen races (only on select tracks apparently).

lol @ people saying GT has never had much of a career mode. That's a load of crap. The first few had amazing career modes. IIRC 4/5 did as well, although the UI in 5 was way too bad for me to stick around much. Didn't play much of 6.

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

Sorry to say, but gt isn't bigger than uncharted or the last of us, and probably even horizon once the second installment comes.

But getting back to the point, I mean cut the incompetent studio known as polyphony. Give GT to some other better studio, ending it would be idiotic.



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.

I see, that's bad. So yeah Fuck GT sports. Hope Sony/PD will learn a valuable lesson here.

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".  Thus the "real driving simulator" reign shall continue.   

Okay, so they have fia license............but with absolutely none of the fia circuits. LOGIC. 

Online racing is far cry what from what you rink it is, since they are basically demolition derbies. This goes for nearly every racing game out there.

No upgrading cars, no dynamic weather, only 177 cars, with like half of them being race variant clones of already existing cars. Only 6 real-life locations. God knows what they have been doing for the last 4 years.

Yes... certainly it's online portion is such a BS that their GT Academy was able to flourish and put a pilot into a professional position.

Also certainly the game is such a sore simulation that Yamauchi also got second place in Nurburgring.

And definetely the skills used in the game are such useless things that I probably were lucky that after several thousand hours played among the 6 GT games I had my first kart race and ended first against people that raced every week, and were able to have a lap in the best 5 of the month.

The evidence being? The only GT to date to sell less than a UC or TLOU in a single platform were 6 as far as I remember.

Anyway you suggested cutting PD and keeping DC dev, so is DC bigger or better than GT?

The main reason for GT being what it's is the passion of Kaz Yamauchi. Sure you can suggest that Sony improve the management or increase the dev. But GT without him would be souless... IF they want another franchise they may make a new dev and start a new IP (hint, DC failed at it).

With as many racing game options as we have these days, is there really a reason to care? If this news puts somebody off, they can just get a different game that's just as good, or arguably better. Big whoop.
