    Forza Horizon 5 wins Most Anticipated Game of E3 2021

    Clearly RDR should have paid the BAFTAs more. It's absurd to think studios nowadays are cable of winning such a prestigious regional award on merit alone.

    Is a basic "look around" camera too much to ask for?

    Not to mention some higher end cars have had 360 degree external cameras for a while now...

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    Can't really do split officially licensed FIA championships.

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    ACC runs at an unstable 30fps on PS4 with fewer cars on track (limited by CPU). Have a read/watch on what they've had to compromise when porting it to PS4: https://www.digitalfoundry.net/2020-07-03-assetto-corsa-competizione-whats-up-with-performance-all-consoles-tested TLDR: game has great...

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    Sauce? The PS4 turns into a jet engine during races. It's simply illogical to expect devs to leave, say, "50%" CPU headroom when designing a first party console exclusive. If there is, as you suggest, a ton of headroom for CPU processing left on the table, then you might as well be suggesting...

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    I mean, that's literally why tech's always advancing, no? Because what was good for its time is still not good enough. Because devs want to be able to do more. Imagine what gaming could be like today if devs had access to Jaguar equivalent processing power back in the C64 era.

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    The PS4 and PS5 versions have to coexist on the esport side of things so it goes to reason the features that aren't possible on PS4 also won't be available on PS5.

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    Sony's been pumping out PS5s faster than they've ever done for previous consoles. It's hard to get right now not because of production delays but because everyone wants one. It's just been difficult to scale production even higher to meet this demand. You'd think with the enormous demand as it...

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    The simulation aspect is heavily dependent on the CPU (think how detailed the tire/suspension physics can be or how quickly they can be updated or even just the grid size). How much more can you expect PD to squeeze out of an 8 year old CPU that was already underpowered when it first launched vs...

    The graphics are the least of my concerns.

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    I don't understand why people are expecting the PS4 and PS5 versions to essentially be separate games when PD is investing so heavily into their FIA championship? There has to be parity between the PS4 and PS5 versions for that to work in terms of simulation/physics. That is directly determined...

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    Going to be lovely seeing 2D trees pop in 10 meters in front of your car in a flagship PS5 launch title.

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    To date, there's more PS2s sold than the PS4 and PS5 combined. That's millions of sales Sony's missing out on by not making GT7 PS2 compatible.

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    Don't even need to look all that far back for categorical proof. Miles Morales sold better on PS5 than PS4.

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    Bet it's going to be a great experience playing GT7 online on your shiny new 2 year old PS5 to find out you'll still be waiting an age for the PS4 players to load in.

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    "The PS5 expanded the possibilities of game development": Leading developers assess the first six months of PS5 | GamesRadar+ "I'd expect that the SSD may be the biggest overall game-changer," says Keith Lee. "As we move from generic engine code designed to run on PS4 or PC to hand-tuned...

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    To me, "we'll continue looking at that" reads "there will be more crossgen first party titles beyond the three we've specifically listed".

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    Because the industry has taught people to be cynical. PD does not have unlimited resources and manpower. The best case would be completely separate versions of GT7 on PS5 and PS4, but how can they achieve that? More delays on top of the impact Covid's already had on the production? Major...

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    The PS5 is a fundamentally different platform and isn't just a faster PS4 in a fancy new shell. It enables new approaches to game design that wasn't possible last gen. Just look at what the devs have managed to do with the super fast I/O throughput (the fast SSD is just one part of the equation)...
