People, this is the FIRST PSP release of Gran Turismo. It isn't their most important project of the century...

I'm not saying I condone the lack of the most important mode in GT, but I do feel like lumping this with GT5 aren't reasonable. They are not even in the same league. That's like saying if LBP PSP isn't a good game, it's telling for the next console iteration. Hardly...

But what it does tell us is that the developer is willing to compromise in quality for expediency. That is something that wasn't even conceivable before this.

Well, we don't have proof of that, it's speculation. I'm sure many people will pick this up and just play to have fun. Lack of Career mode could be a bad thing (to me it is), or a good thing (some people will just want to pick up and play).

Either way, GT5 shouldn't be pegged with this, and that was my point.

I think I have an idea of what might have happened. Remember sonys focus on the "Pick up and play" part of the psp these times ? perhaps polyphony figured a career mode was unnesesarry concidering that it's something you're likely to play for a 15-20 mins at a time..

I too think it was a very .. bad decision though.



Check out my game about moles ^

that won't stop me from getting this game



Is there a single person who is surprised that Gran Turismo does not translate very well into handheld? I know I'm not.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

I think its SONY's fault for rushing the game.....

polyphony needed more time, SONY rushed them



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

I'm not too shocked at that, just a tad surprised that some form of a Career Mode is absent. Again, I'm not condoning it, but feel that they KNOW their main release has to shine and many of the resources went there.

Possibly, even though that doesn't seem like Sony. If anything, they're known to take their time on games, but I guess this needed to be ready for the launch of the Go! A lesson to be learned...



                                                                                                                                            

Imagine the meltdown if GT 5 gets the same treatment from the media and similar reviews (it wont). But at the moment GT PSP looks like a huge kick in the nuts for those who were looking to play this portable, they instead getting a very rushed product, real shame.

Wii Fit!

Getting scared?

 

Gwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaha*evil laugh continues till dsister remembers the ODSt review and gets sad

Nah, this just tells me GT PSP has been rushed to launch alongside PSPgo.


Apparently it has been worked on since before the PSP launch. Though I'm not sure how reliebale this source is. lol

Lol, probably has. But im wagering its been on and off with all the other releases Polyphony have had.

Coupled with it releasing aside PSPgo, i guess it was a rushed finish for the game.

Maybe people were expecting too much with it being a Gran Turismo game? Maybe UMD has held it back?

Could be several excuses



There's no excuse for the lack of career mode, even PSOne games had that.
