    Let's put it another way. I think they are the worst of the entire genre at the moment. I'm quite certain I'm not alone. There isn't a single game from this generation I would swap GT's sound package into and call it an improvement.
    Probably for the same reason you see people posting that there might still be a large offline career or that there may be much more to the game than what PD has stated so far. Gives them hope that's the unknown future is somehow better than the vision they've been given of the game so far. Plus it's a convenient excuse for everything that's not quite up to industry standard. I'm still waiting for someone to go into a long winded discussion about how "beta" means something different in Japanese or to PD and that we've had it all wrong and it's actually a demo. :sly:

    They have already announced at Copper Box what features the game will have, so we already know how the game will be at launch.

    The purpose of the beta is to test the infrastructure and the SR/DR system.

    Eh GT6 was 3 years after GT5 so it is not really a big issue for the delay. IMO

    But it took them 5 years to complete the game and add everything that was promised.

  10. Yea both on the PS3. The PS4 is approaching 4 years and they are releasing something equal to Forza 5, a game GT fans slated for it's quantity of content. Now Forza 7 is approaching too. It kind of is an issue for the objective GT fan as it shows PDI have still not pulled their finger out.

    And when they did add everything ( not quite everything ) it was not as expected ( course maker needing a tablet) or many people had deserted the game making communities redundant to me when it did come out.

    The fact some are making themselves believe PDI are going to possibly release more features than what they're showing tells me that deep down they know PDI are really lacking.

    True. Even i went to Forza for a while and have really thought of getting xbox one + horizon for quite a few times. Was expecting GT for PS4 at launch or soon after, but we know how that went. I think GT has too much competition to be clear #1, but casual players and new to ps4 players may very well make it still a great success. All of my opinions are based on what is adequate for me. Of course i will take more, but im not expecting wonders. As so many other, i get that certain feel from GT. Its not realism, its more of an entertaining community experience. Hence my lack of interest towards offline features.

    I see why the criticism towards the gt6 course maker(not just you) . It just makes me always think is there a better one on consoles? If not - it is still the only one working so i would appreciate that.

    But if loyal fans are fine with it, how is it an insult to them?

    If they're fine with it they're not fans, they're fanboys.

    What would you rather us do then? Buy a racing sim with better physics and sound, but have those two aspects be the only selling point of the game?

    Seriously, people need to stop parading AC and Project CARS around the GTS forums pretending like they're leagues above Gran Turismo, because they aren't.

    It isn't an insult to anybody: if the version at the N24 has never been playable at any other outing, regardless of what we can or can't see that's new/different, the "never-before-seen" tag is accurate.

    Now you're thinking like a marketer! :D

    :rolleyes:

    People have been saying this same thing since GT3 days.

    Eh, the original post on the PlayStation blog specifically mentioned the gaming pods featuring the "new" version of the game. The R8 simulator was a separate point.

    I do wonder how that is an experience: I remember Subaru bringing 'round a much simpler moving pod way back in the day, using GT3 and a rally stage. As a teen, that was sensory overload.

    Some guys here need to cool off. So much negativity. Wow. I watched N24 all weekend... of course i wanted to jump straight at my G29 after this. I planed playing AC, but i went with GT Sport. Loved it.

    Why do we have to stop if we believe it to be true and aren't afraid to support our thoughts to the best of our ability with opinion and/or facts? If you disagree you can counter punch or should we stop you from doing that as well?

    I think these games can be compared, but they are not quite similar. AC is way out there in the hc sim sector, GTS is the casual pretty entertainer racer, and Pcars is somewhere in between.. Closer to AC. Its like comparing racecar vs supercar vs convertible sportscar.

    For a note I really wouldnt mind if GTS would get rid of the whole "the real driving simulator" as it hasnt been that compared to competition for years now.

    I might add i enjoy all 3 alike. I rather keep gt as my social racer and AC as my S&M sim entertainment.. :cheers:

    People do need to stop telling others what they should write about and how they should feel about games.

    I'm surprised there is so much bitterness over this “new“ version. What did you expect? Many people here have the pleasure to play the beta everyday since so many weeks... if Polyphony wants to show off something new, they would propably do this via beta. That aside... two weeks from now is E3.

    I expect great news for GT Sport, a final release date and maybe an open beta. In the end, this will be a fine game. It wont do everything the way we might like, but this will be a great looking, accessible e-sport title, the i racing for the masses. It will work out well for Sony.

    Does that include people who claim to be a spokesperson for loyal fans, or is it limited to those you personally disagree with?

    I'm not the one telling people to stop comparing GT Sport with other racing games I've never brought up to begin with.

    Exactly. You're the one telling people that they shouldn't tell other people how they should feel. And that is why I asked you how you feel about that self-appointed representative of all loyal fans who claimed not only that they are insulted but also that they are fine with being insulted.

    Are you fine with that? If so, is it because you happen to agree with his opinion or do you have some other reason for it?

    Somehow this unreleased "40% of a game" has about as much content as Assetto Corsa before DLC.

    AC does have a sublime handling model however. And combined with it's excellent ffb that more than makes up for the lack of content. So for those who are looking for a great (realistic) driving experience AC is king on console. If it's the best looking racer on console that your looking for then GTS will probably tick that box. Although PCars 2 may give it a run for it's money.

    If they're fine with being insulted, good for them. Just don't call these people true fans because they're not.
