I think it’s time for a Gran Turismo Kart. All of the upgradability of a Gran Turismo title with the color, fun, and mischief of Mario Kart. Let’s take this sim genre to a new place.

Well there is kart race on Gran Turismo, at least on GT 6 I played it a lot =p

Karts made there appearance in GT Sport as well, great fun online



I was more impressed that the crowds were actual 3d and not paper like. That too me was a big improvement lol. Even trees look like trees

1) There is nothing new or exciting about it. Even going through the press release I struggle to find any new features or gameplay modes to look forward to. They seem to be stressing the return of the GT campaign mode after singleplayer took a backseat to online play in GT Sport. But GT Sport had a ton of offline single player race events to play through. I'm sure GT7's will be better organized and more comprehensive, but it really is not that big of a change. Also why so much emphasis on the Photo mode? I enjoyed it in GT Sport but it's not the most thrilling gameplay experience.

The RPG-like SP of GT is a core feature of the experience, and probably one of the most requested features from the GT community. The SP content of Gt Sport isn't really the same thing. 

As for photo mode, it's the realism factor of the cars. It's a car enthusiast feature, which much of the GT community happens to be. 

But yes, there's no real evolution of the SP component and photo mode has a specific audience. But both appeal to the audience looking to buy the game.

2) The graphics don't impress me. I know we are doomed by diminishing returns but I honestly don't see much of a step up in terms of visual presentation. Even though all of the footage shown so far has been of the PS5 version, they show a lot of replays and pre-rendered visuals rather than direct gameplay. Even the gameplay footage is not that impressive. Maybe its time to change up the visual aesthetic because it all looks so plain, sterile, and artificial.

GT Sport originally looked like a PS3 game, and only improved on the way to it's release. GT7 will undoubtedly look better before it's release in March. 

3) It's cross gen with PS4. Yeah, I can't get hyped knowing they had to make sure this game ran on PS4 hardware as well. It honestly makes the GT6 on PS3 debacle even more confusing, if anything that game should have been cross gen because the PS4 was not backwards compatible and therefore incapable of playing GT 6. Will online feature cross gen play? How much will the loading times differ? Does the pixel count for cars differ between both versions? So maybe GT8 at the end of the gen will be fully PS5 exclusive, maybe it will feature PSVR 2 support as well.

This is a confusing point. The architectural differences between the PS4 and PS5 are fairly minimized compared to the PS3 and PS4. GT6 being cross gen would've been a massive undertaking to achieve and get released when it did. And Sony already had another racer which was supposed to release in the same time period, DriveClub. So not only would a cross-gen release have taken up more time and resources to do, it would've had to compete with a PS4 exclusive racer as well.

GT7 obviously runs on an enhanced version of the GT Sport engine, so being cross-gen shouldn't be an issue. We also don't know much about the differences between the two at this point. I think most ppl agree that the PS5 version will support PSVR2, just like GT SProt supports PSVR. And if PSVR2 is everything we assume it'll be, VR will offer the full GT7 experience. 



I enjoyed Gran Turismo 1-3 but then dropped out. It became very repetitive. Graphical improvements, but basically the same cars, the same races, the same tracks and whatnot. Once again, it doesn't seem like much has changed apart from resolution and performance. They said they have been taking the best features from all the previous GT games, so I'll have to see what kinds of things are included. I don't remember which GT it was where you could look at adverts for old, used cars and buy them. There were some really old, rare and shady cars that you could customize and play around with, that was a fun feature on top of all the new and shiny cars.

GT Sport had a lot of car porn as well, checking out the Jaguar XJ13 in VR

These special classics were 20 million credits though (and can't be purchased with real money). The reward for grinding to max credits. Or if you got really lucky you could get them in the daily workout spin.

GT5 has the used car dealer shop, GT Sport only had safety car versions you could get with mileage points with different selections over time.

GT Sport actually did have some excellent new original tracks like Dragon Trail: Seaside an Kyoto driving park, as well as new real world additions that never featured in GT before. The main complaint about the track list was not having more of the previous tracks in GT Sport!

GT Sport started fresh, new engine, new assets made for native 4K and HDR (rec.2020, up to 10K nits) so it was already designed for PS5. TVs that can display all that GT Sport has to offer still don't exist. Which at least means that all cars and tracks can easily move over and be displayed at higher lod on ps5. A pro (more tracks/cars at release) and a con (a lot of exact same content). But it allows GT7 to release 'early' for a change.

It will be fun to play the rpg lite campaign again, which was missing in GT Sport. But I hope PD also improves the online sport mode and maybe add dynamic time/weather later, at least for the Nurburgring, Sarthe and Spa. I love doing endurance races with real time weather there. One of the most fun races I did was a multi-class endurance race (lobby organized) at night

Those 3.5 hours were over in a flash, managing fuel used and tires, planning pit stops ahead, overtaking lower class cars along the way. Doing this with real time and dynamic weather and many more cars on track is my dream race. (Add VR and you'll never see me again lol) Maybe one day.

Ah yes, the trees... so lifelike!

Seriously though, one thing I've always thought Gran Turismo has lacked is detailed environments... like yeah, the cars look outstanding but the environments are still stuck in the early 00's... when I first got my PS3 and played Driveclub I was blown away by the detail in their environments, and even when Gran Turismo Sport came out, Driveclub just looked so much better as a whole, even to this day I believe that... the environments and weather are top notch in Driveclub and Gran Turismo hasn't come close for me... I still love the games, easily my favourite driving simulators and this is the most excited I've been for one since Gran Turismo 3, but yeah... I know it can be done, so why isn't it?!



^ Damn, that looks way worse than anything from GT Sport. It looks like the only thing changed from the PS3 version is the resolution...

The trees on the Nordschleife at least got upgraded to be a bit more lifelike


And rain was already pretty well visualized, although not dynamic


Too bad PD stopped upgrading more tracks with rain and snow tires were never used in the game.

The same as always *shrugs*

Getting GT7 day one?

I think I might hold it for a while as I wait to get a PS5.

Not sure tho, might get it for PS4 if its good enough there.



I am not excited for either GT7 or FM8. Honestly Sim racers don't do it for me. After playing the Horizon games, i honestly couldn't go back to the Sim games.
