    From current experiences from the people who've played it recently (the E3 demo version I believe) it sounds like it's just a rehashed version of GT6... Same physics just updated graphics...
    Sounds disappointing really...

    Ur right it does sound disappointing. Considering when gran turismo first came out it was very fresh and very much revolutionary when it came to car selection and tracks etc.

    What got me is that gt6 still felt uncomfortably arcadish.

    When you look at what assetto corsa and project cars have achieved (even if a few years old on pc), its definitely a hard benchmark to meet and hoprfully succeed.

    Given how Forza 3 Horizon has upped the ante, and given us PC playability (subject to hardware), the pressure will be on even more now to create something that blows everyones socks off.

    Just not sure how they can make things THAT much better than FH3 though.

    Seems like they could get so many more people playing these driving games if they just supported more wheels (at least PS3 ones at the minimum).

    I used to be huge into sim racing (hence the poleposition username, always came last though lol) and since I don't do much PC gaming I would have been all the more encouraged if I could have used a G25 or G27 logitech steering wheel instead of the console specific new one.

    I mean we have already bought their console, the least we can do is use our existing wheel.

    Think about how immersive project cars and assetto corsa have become, I can't imagine Gran Turismo 5 blowing it out of the water. As you say its all been done pretty much before. Maxed out.

    That's the US site...
    I wonder if it's worldwide or only for US ids?

    GT franchise could easily improve the sound.

    And improve the menu system to not require 600 inputs to start a race.

    Still a fun game to pick up and race. Missing it on PS4.

    Yes :D

    I was initially advised of the following:

    During the weekend:

    22:00 - 04:00 AEST.
    During the weekdays:

    03:00 – 06:00 AEST.

    But I recieved the following correction:


    The correct starting date and time are as follows: Saturday 3 June at 16:00 AEST.

    I applied on the GT Sport website.

    The link is still on the home page :thumbup:
    http://www.gran-turismo.com/au/products/gtsport/

    I'm rather excited about it, I've got extensive racing and gaming experience and have a long time love of GT. It's the only reason I got my PS3 and PS4 actually.

    For testing I'm just using a T300RS based setup with custom pedals, attached to the desk with the PS4 plugged in behind a few of the PC's. Shame I work most weekends hey.

    I signed up for the beta the Day they announced it. Still didnt get in for it though. ahh well. hope its good, it's taken long enough and for those of us who stump up for the CE versions expensive enough too.

    Man this is looking good. I wish (I know it'd never happen) I could play this on the PC.

    Never buying another GT game after their fuckery with DLC. What a sick joke that was. They could at least release the full game instead of pulling it from the store and making it unavailable. Go to reinstall game and I can't get the stuff I'd paid for,

    Fuck Sony and fuck Polyphony, never again.
