LOL, instead of rebuilding the Hudson, they are playing GT6 here on the live stream...

Some good discussion on physics and GT6 engine
And the guy who has driven the Quattro group B in real life said the GT6 version handles the same way

Hope it sounds like that in GT6...

there is hope

Quote :It sounds better than any other car I've heard in a Gran Turismo game. The Internet at the hotel is slow here and I have to go to bed early for my flight back home tomorrow, but I'll try go edit and upload my gameplay footage of the car.

Enough has been said by using this video.

However, the app only records the path you took and doesn't record other details such as the road's width or surrounding scenery. Those details will be fine-tuned using GT6's course maker within the game itself. As Imasaki noted, the course maker will be an expanded version of what was in the previous game, but he wasn't ready to dive into specifics just yet.

One addition the team is hoping to include is point-to-point tracks, or tracks that aren't a complete loop. If you're trying to record your morning commute using the app, for example, chances are you won't be making a complete loop. Imasaki acknowledged that point-to-point track support is something the team is aware of, but it remains to be seen whether this feature will make it into Gran Turismo 6.

Tracks in gran Turismo still appear narrower than their real life counterpart.

Just a different field of view with the cameras used
Also POV, the real footage is shot a lot closer to the road.
Idk I had this issue with gt5 spots real cars could go 2 cars wide on the ring you couldn't fit 1.5. It's especially noticeable with a racing wheel

Yeah with slower cars, most of the racing you do on GT5 is with faster cars which makes it hard as hell.
New opening movie - from the Japanese version, their version got released today

spoilers etc

standard RUF - so much better, can't wait to double wing it again like in GT5
Omg can't wait! 24 hrs to go!
Anyone who ordered it online seems to be getting it a day early, damn wish i did.

Not me.
The digital PSN version takes forever to install?

I just watch it go from 55 to 56% installed in 1 min....

My PS3 has been on all night, I just woke up, I left it on, and it had downloaded over 1GB before I went to bed

Maybe I should have got the disc version - sigh
I guess the unpack and write back onto the same HD is like defragging...
I should have bought a small SSD



The dude is clearly using a gamepad, which makes the car movement quite weird and ruins the whole thing. Would be spot on with a good wheel though.
While my game install took at least an hour on a regular HD, from PSN
The 1.2GB update downloaded in 6 mins and only took no more than 5 mins to install
Game booting up now!

V1.01 changed the Comfort tyre sounds, sounds like fingernails on a blackboard!

Amost sounds like a glitch, as you can hear the proper tyre noise under that screech
someone's vid

V1.01
Vision GT has been added to the home screen.
  • Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo is available as a gift car.
  • Online part has been modified on the home screen. 1.00 had 4 available online modes. Community, Open lobby, Quick Match and Seasonal events. In the 1.01 patch there is only Open lobby and Seasonal events in the online section on the home screen.
  • GT game server is now online in Europe
  • Car tuning menus has been updater to expand/collapse function.
  • Freshman Cup added to National B mode.
  • Status screen has an updated layout.
  • Tyre type fitted to car is now displayed in lower left corner of race display when driving
I was right - newer builds at game expos had tyre type on bottom left
Retail build must be months old


you also need License A to get online
One of my first few novice races with the Honda Fit, at Brands Hatch, was day dreaming and crashed

Damage is mostly dents and scuffs
Had Sports Hards and stiffer suspension upgrade, plus wheel upgrade - that's all.
Sports hard tyres sound OK

But considering how much you seem to fascinate over GT how could you possibly be daydreaming? Did you think you were in heaven or something?

Sh*t happens

My next race on Honda Fit Willow Springs - man I love this track, physics feel real good here. Feels like driving on a country road

check out the off road and suspension physics!

Game looks........... so very very real.
Quote from BlueFlame :Game looks........... so very very real.

yeah, the lighting rocks, but the textures could use a PS4 upgrade, and it's a bit flickery like GTA5
Just drove the GT500 HSV around Bathurst that track is awesome.

Managed a 2:02.3 on Racing Hards grip set to real all aids off, more time possible but only had time for like 3 laps.
The tyres definitely have more bite, even compared to the GT Academy demo
Much more progressive - no more driving on ice feel so far (iRacing :razz

I took the X-Bow for a spin/race, and you can feel the rear end tugging around in a very controllable way

Hand brake turns feel sublime, you can feel the tyres grip sliding

Also the Honda Fit can even oversteer in certain corners with power - certainly a first for a GT game.
I just don't feel that terminal understeer of GT games of past even in FF cars

Rotating cars under brakes is achievable.

Only thing is transmission modelling and engine braking is far too weak IMO
In Asseto Corsa you can upset the car from changing gears etc, not as apparent here
