Russian Gran Turismo 6 Game Box Highlights Mobile Apps, Course Maker Features

October 1st, 2013 by Jordan

Russian retailer “1C Interest” recently announced their special pre-order Gran Turismo 6 incentive, offering a collection of cars, in-game credits, a keychain, and more, as outlined here by GTPlanet member “Dionisiy”.

“Rage Racer”, another Russian GTPlanet community member picked up his pre-order package in Moscow yesterday, and shared pictures of the items here in our forums.

The package includes the game box itself (without the actual game disc, of course), the back of which contains some interesting comments, as translated by Rage Racer.

Notably, it highlights GT6‘s still-mysterious Course Maker, stating that players can “edit existing tracks” and “create your own”. Another sentence says “the whole world is waiting to become your autodrome [race track],” which could be an allusion to potential Course Maker functionality.

The game’s accompanying mobile apps are also discussed, which will apparently allow players to “view, tune, and edit their creations” on the go.

UPDATE: More pictures of the pre-order pack are available from Dionisiy here. However, the validity of the statements on the box has been called into question by GTPlanet member SpartanUK, an anonymous insider from within Sony.

  1. Fake

    It’s fun to see PEGI rating has grown up from 3+(GT5) to 6+(GT6). Maybe «human drama»?

    • Ittybitty Stigy

      lol, good catch.

    • Rage Racer

      It’s not PEGI, it’s RARS — «Russian Age Rating System». They don’t have a 3+ rating, they have only 0+, 6+, 12+, 16+ and 18+.

    • BaseBuild

      But why not 0+ ?

  3. BaseBuild

    «the whole world is waiting to become your autodrome [race track]» or «Весь мир готов стать вашим автодромом» just means «We have tracks located in many countries», nothing more.
    By the way this pre-order packs it’s a good chance for 1C, MVideo and Sony get some more money from customers, because 1C, MVideo have their own discount systems, but you cant use them if you buy pre-order pack. So, if you want have keychain you need to spent additional $10.

    Aaaand asian special edition is far more superior comparing to all others.

  6. Apparently, it’s not a “1C” exclusive in Russia:

    • Rage Racer

      This also offers all 25 cars instead of 20. 0_0

  7. Ok, i see now. It’s not a game. It’s box of discount coupon ;) It costs 300 rubles which seller (official store) will deduct when you buy GT6 game and show this coupon. There is no disc inside this box.
    Description on the back of this box is something you cannot trust at 100% because it’s made by 3rd-party company “1C”. This company is not a part of Sony or PDI, so description can be based on any type of sources. When game will out, there will be real description.

    • Rage Racer

      It’s not made, it’s just sold by 1C. The package was wrapped into the Sony’s film, like a game package. And do you think a retailer can make PSN codes? I think they can’t.
      However, I agree that this info on the box shouldn’t be believed too literally. These “newest dream cars”, “the whole world becoming your track” are most likely just PR.
      But what definetly cannot be a mistake is the “GT Mobile app”.

      Also, I suppose that 1C and the Russian division of Sony have an agreement to distribute this pack exclusively by 1C. That’s the most likely cause why I haven’t seen it being offered by any other retailer yet.

    • I don’t care of other features but “edit existing tracks”. Kaz never mentioned about editing of existing tracks anywhere. Also, i doubt it’s allowable by license from track owners. It more looks like incorrect translation from Japanese(or English) to Russian.
      The PSN codes are from Sony definitely. But it doesn’t make whole description on the back absolutely correct automatically.

    • Rage Racer

      I think the person who wrote this had some misunderstanding about this feature. Maybe we’ll have some “template” tracks to modify, but also be able to create the tracks from scratch. That’s the possible meaning.

    • The Stig Farmer

      By “Edit existing tracks”, I take it that it will be possible to modify our previously-created course maker tracks.

  8. Falango

    Pretty sure this is made by someone at the studio as an additional promotional item for the store. Sony wouldn’t be sending boxes to stores just to have to send more with the game in it……

    • Rage Racer

      Sony actually sends a lot of empty boxes for packaging PSN cards in Russia. Want me to show what it looks like?

  9. Most likely, it’s fake. Someone’s practice in cover making from pictures found in internet. Plus wanted features written as real ;)

    Common, $10 for GT6 Limited Edition is way too cheap. Even in Russia!

    • Rage Racer

      “1C interest” is a big and respected retail store in Russia. They don’t sell anything fake.
      3 years ago, I’ve bought a similar pack for GT5, it contained a code for Stealth cars, and now I have them in GT5. Do you believe me? I can proove if you don’t.

    • 299 rubles refers to the pre-order discount, not the total price.

    • Rage Racer

      299 is the price of this package. And the discount is 300.

  10. MockngBrd

    Livery :(

  11. TDZdave

    hopefully that means we the people can fix that dang bus stop chicane in Daytona road,

    • Swagger897

      why? there isnt anything wrong with it…

      you do know it exists there correct?

    • Ittybitty Stigy

      ^ Am I correct in saying that they put the older version of it in GT5?

    • Swagger897

      I must be misunderstanding something here.. hasn’t the bus stop always been ?

    • BoneSawTX

      it’s the old bus stop, it’s a little different now.

    • Swagger897

      ahh okay… will have to do some .jpg hunting tonight then

  12. sayba2th

    All I can say is bring it on!!!!!! Man, after having my G27 set up off the money for some time now (only racing soft and keep control going round corners) and after doing some research on GTP for wheel set ups (thanks guys and girls of GTP!!!) problem is now solved. So as of last night I now have complete control of my comfort and sports tires with out spinning outta control all the time. The wheel just paid for itself many times over last night instantly after that change was effected. Even my flattie who is not a big GT player came out and put it down to his surprise.
    So now GT6 which was already highly anticipated just went through the roof for me as GT5 has just become a whole new game again. I can’t even contain how excited I am at present this just could not have had better timing with just 65 days to go there will be some serious time spent in my rig now. Anyone debating the wheel scenario needs to get up on one, your experience will be just that much better.

    • ScotteDawg

      Unfortunately, the flat I live in has no room for a wheel set-up! I can’t even store one when I’m not using it cause I got no room! Hopefully I can move by the end of the tear to something roomier and with the NBN (optical fibre)!

  13. JohnScoonsBeard

    Remember existing tracks could just mean edit gt5 custom tracks rather than Official tracks. It would still be cool though.

    • Pit Crew

      True, but im thinking these could also be upgraded to the level of the GT6 course creator specs or parameters, plus I agree with others that PD designed courses (Original List) could be editied according to the info…

  14. TomBrady

    So it means we could potentially edit already existing tracks? That would be awesome.

    Would be really cool to have tokyo as a course maker location. Obviously it would have to be much smaller than the huge 20km by 20km layouts but still would be fun.

    I hope Costa Di Amalfi makes it back in. If not I’ll create one.

  15. TheNxtGenGT

    It seems legit, but it’s probably just a dummy box.

  16. Antonioserna12

    What the heck is this? 0.o

  17. Themule

    3D??? Hell no

    • RACECAR

      3d simply means its compatible with 3d Tvs, it doesn’t mean its by default only going to be 3d. Calm down.

  18. reaperman

    Right, because PD’s always great about putting all the features printed on the box in the game. *cough* leaderboards and matchmaking *cough*

    • TomBrady

      There were leaderboards

    • sayba2th

      + 1, the seasonal, although if I remember rightly the OP had posted this “Wonderful, they’ll finish it later. Until they won’t. Just like they never finished GT5. I still recall my retail box mentioning leaderboards and matchmaking…” Aren’t you bearing this grudge a little heavily? Let it go cuz, damn I would hate to have wronged you in the past if you hold on to such minor things.

    • Quakebass

      Considering they put all this on the box…

      That is a BIG risk by their part, and it seems that they’re being WAY more cautious with info this time around. So I’m more inclined to believe this…

  19. Johnnypenso

    Edit existing tracks? Meaning I can edit Trial Mountain? Deep Forest? Eiger? That is something I suggested before but never thought would happen. Hope its true!!

    • Griffith500

      That might just be the layout selection, i.e. Ronda. If that’s possible on all multi-config tracks (including the possibility of open configs), then it might be interesting. Tracks like Madrid, Rome, Cape Ring, Eiger, Nürburgring, Suzuka etc. could benefit from that. I personally doubt it means we’ll be able to modify the tracks physical structure, though.

    • HuskyGT

      I really hope that’s right, but I don’t feel it’s going to happen. If it does, I would think it’s only with the original tracks. That’s awesome because I could finally get rid of the loop and the jump in Cape Ring.

      I was curious before with this whole Track Editor, but now anxiety is eating me from the inside out….

    • Johnnypenso

      Way to burst my bubble Griffith!!…lol. I’ve never understood why PD doesn’t make longer versions of Deep Forest, Trial Mountain, Eiger etc. It’s so much simpler than laser scanning real tracks and would add something new to the game at relatively low cost to them. Without being hamstrung by the limitations of conforming to reality, they can let their imaginations run wild. Keep the majority of the existing track but add .5-1 km or longer sections in certain spots. I think it would add a lot of playability to the game. If I was Kaz I’d be thinking of making a “Little Nurb”, incorporating the favourite elements of the real track into a shorter, 5-7 km version more suited to side by side racing. We could call it “Kleinenring” or “Pequeño Anillo”

    • My thoughts exactly on Cape ring Huskygt. git rid of loop and jump and that track would be awsome.

    • HighPlainsDrftr

      I don’t mind the loop so much as the jumps.
      Making good time and hit the jump just slightly off at speed and…..

  20. mr_pepps

    This seems dead fishy to me. Itchy chin.

    Awef***ingsome

  22. sangdude82

    Bathust 1000 is less than 10 days to go. Let’s hope that PD will show us something to go wild :D

    • 40years since it became a 1000km race. Something has to be revealed!!

    • ScotteDawg

      Nothing will be revealed at Bathurst this year! I expect Febrary next year at the 12hr race!

      Expect the worst so, when it happens, you won’t be disappointed!!!

  23. TokoTurismo

    Wait wait hold on. You can create your “own” tracks? That’s it, day 1, not turning back. Creating tracks is my number one most favorite thing in racing games. I’m really GT6 will be having that. :)

    • TokoTurismo

      happy*

    • Ferrari458Italia

      Definitely one of mine too. But I’m honestly more interested in “viewing, tuning, and editing” my cars on my mobile phone more. that sounds awesome!

  24. Nato_777

    I’m struggling to get my head around the point of giving out preorders now with just an empty game case. How do the retailers have the case in the first place? Surely Sony don’t ship out the cases ahead of time and then the discs to put in them later and I wouldn’t have thought the game would have shipped out yet either – I would expect it to be either in production or about to be about now as it takes time to burn millions of game discs, pack and ship them around the world ready for release day. If it has already shipped then we are definitely in for a (big) day one update (probably with overloaded servers!).
    Anyway that aside – very interesting info on the course maker – especially the edit existing tracks part.

    • sangdude82

      May be it’s a dummy box.

    • smskeeter23

      They’ve already said there is going to be a big day 1 update.

    • Nato_777

      And if it’s a dummy box then it’s likey a dummy cover and to be taken very much with a grain of salt. :(

    • Rage Racer

      Sony DOES ship the cases. This pack contains PSN codes, remember. Who are they given by if not by Sony?

  25. GRAFX21

    The package includes the game box itself (without the actual game disc, of course)

    and the point of thew box? with no game? SMH

    • Maybe because GT6 isn’t out yet?

    • Well there is going to be a day 1 update. So maybe that update contains all of the data that would’ve been on the disk.

  26. kind of sucks with the app thing.. rather have a “book” version..

    • Mr C5 Z06 Vette

      It would be pretty awesome if i could turn some of the routes to my school into sprint stages of various lengths.

    • Mr C5 Z06 Vette

      That was not supposed to be a reply the gtplanet app just did that on its own oops

  27. MadmuppGT

    Why dont PD announce something like this, would it really hurt to say ‘oh this course maker and mobile apps will do X,Y,Z…’

    If anything it would create buzz and make people eager to play the game, keeping people in the dark wont generate buzz

  28. HuskyGT

    Now we’re getting somewhere! This is the kind of news I’ve been waiting. Some mysterious person getting hold of a box, or hopefully in the future, the game itself. Just like it happened with GT5 prior its release.

  29. Tune and Edit on the Go with mobile app! That has to be the best news EVER!! So we can carry our GT garage everywhere we go. +1000

  30. “the whole world is waiting to become your autodrome [race track],” for me is an allusion to the GPS feature, where you could import a gps tracked route to the game.

    • Swagger897

      wasnt there just an article about this with one of the cars at spa and fuji? I can see this as being one of the most innovative things that has come to gaming since motion controllers. Now we record the motion and play it in game

    • HighPlainsDrftr

      It would be so awesome to be able to race on the local track (High Plains Raceway). I’m sure I could get GPS info from one of the drivers.

  31. Normalaatsra

    Now I need to pre-order mine! Exciting stuff.

  32. Let’s make a track in Siberia!

    • TRLWNC7396

      I can’t wait to see what person roads will turn into. I remember having this conversation before GT4 came out! I am STOKED!
