What would I do? The game isn't out yet and the IP makes them tons of money. Not a question anyone can answer until things are actually bad. To suggest that Polyphony should be "cut off" is unrealistic and shows a lack in understanding business. Like I said, Sport isn't even out yet. 

Revisit these hypotheticals when we see if any real damage is done due to shifting priorities.

Im not suggesting the studio should be cut off.

And you are right: im 100% basing my worries in hypotheticals. But after reading several negative previews, with most of them complaining about the lack of content, there is a high, almost certain chance that critics will be punishing the game with low scores.

We should wait and see, and maybe revisit this thread after the games release.

Stop living in the PS2 generation. The age of Gran Turismo is coming to a close, since the studio hasn't been competent since 2004. Kaz should focus on making the game better rather than focusing on all this "gt academy" and fia crap. All he does is tour the world with Sony's dollars. Get over it. It isn't 2003 anymore. Also, DC sold well, and by the end it was a great racing game. Much better than GT sport will ever be.

GT6 released on PS3 as far as I know... GT5 released in 2010 and sold more than 10M (with prologue selling over 5M). No other racing franchise (other than MK) really get anywhere near in sale, so please show your evidence to close the studio.

So a simulation game that is so well done that Academy and FIA is a possibility to get a license is a bad game because?

And good that you already played GT Sport to know it have no way to be better than DC, even though considering the Sim part DC wouldn't be better than even GT4.

What is your point really. Just to take shit at the game you don't like and pretend that is some kind of universal thing?

Did I ever say "sim"? Nope. Even then, Project cars beats it in that category. I said driveclub will be the vastly better GAME than GT sport. That 10M was 7 years ago. Since then GT6 has only got 5M. How do you know it's well done if you haven't played the game yourself? Talk about hipocrisy.



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.

Hm. Gran Turismo 6 sold 5 million? Hm...2013. It released in 2013? What happened in 2013? Hm...ugh.....what was it. Something happened....fuccck.. I can't remember! What was it in 2013? Hmmmmmm.... nevermind, guess it was nothing like coming out the holiday of one of the fastest selling consoles ... 



You know I wish that I could say GT dissapointed me again. But by now I doubt that's even possible. The tracks and environments look bad, hell the whole gamd looks bad except for the cars. GT5 had a butload of content to justify the long development time. But this game has less content than Forza 5 and now also the online only bullshit bandwagon.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

You quoted me asking what should they do, in response to me saying that the last thing that should happen is a cut off. Hence my reply.

And your last line sounds awfully familiar. :P

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

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

At this point the IP is more valuable than the studio. Because the IP is being wasted.

Im not sure if its their biggest IP anymore and that doesent justify the outrageously long development times for what appears to be an incomplete product.

I wouldnt suggest closing Polyphany but the IP itself is not being utilized well. As its been mentioned, we are about to get the 5th Forza game on X1 and all have been good to great. People are already talking about PS5 but a proper 8th gen GT isnt even here.

Maybe GT needs a second studio to pick up the slack.

GT is a sim and that is what their public want. And PC is very bad sim in case you don't know, it get nowhere near beating any GT game. Saying Street Fighter is a better game than Mario (being true or not) means anything when their public is different? Nope. So your point is useless... again you are basing your point in an unreleased game, Hipocrisy? Nope I played GT 1-6 and know the quality to expect from GT Sport, so expecting it to be better than DC isn't hipocrisy, but since you brought it, how can you evaluate GT Sport to be sure it will be worse than DC for sure?

Yes GT6 "only sold 5M" show which other racing IP got it. Owww besides MK none.

The game aim is completely different and it was made from ground up on new engine, new assets by a team that is 1/3 of Turn 10.

Here's the excerpt:

"In order to ensure fair racing for all, GT Sport will require an internet connection for the majority of functionality. This connectivity requirement is to ensure that progress, car availability and driver ratings are properly maintained at all times.

This doesn’t mean you’ll need PlayStation Plus though. As with all PlayStation titles, PS Plus will only be needed for the online multiplayer, portions of the Arcade Mode, including limited two-player split screen, single player races on select tracks and time trials can still be played offline."

So, it sounds like it's only for online multiplayer? But I guess it could be sneaky wording by Sony.

PS+ is required for online MP. Even the single player stuff, like progressing through the "campaign", requires an online connection.

Which hey, IDGAF about an online connection being required. But that is surprising. I'm more bummed about the lack of a real GT career mode.

This reminds me of Street Fighter V. I dont think you could earn any fight money while offline.

Perhaps they plan on raping people with microtransactions?

I would not even consider buying GT Sport at launch. But I will gladly buy it when its 20 bucks and probably a better product.

I'm out of here, this thread is full of people who suck up to gt and polyphony, and eat anything they crap out. They are a lost cause and live in 2003. Adios.
