car prices appear to be tied to car performance, unlike gt7 "real life value". Ex: cobra 427 and cobra daytona, respectably, cost 2.5M and 20M in gt7. In forza cobra 427 costs 175k and cobra daytona costs 165k.
THOSE ARE THE NORMAL PRICES!!!!!
 
Literally copy & paste from the last updates: "In a '2P Split Screen' race, the Assist Settings for Player 2 are locked. We plan to fix this in a future update. (Player 1 will use the same Assist Settings as defined in [Settings] > [Assist Settings])" Why do they even bother writing this? 🙄
 
Tried forza motorsport. Didnt do much, just the tutorial witch consists of about 5 races and went to have a look on their brand central. Some very early conclusions:

According to the Hagerty valuation tool a Shelby Cobra is worth between $1M and $2M and a Cobra Daytona is worth $24.8M so the GT7 prices could be argued are very accurate!
 
I had some questions on a couple of trophies I haven’t done yet:

-Does SSRX count as an oval?

-Do you have the wash the exact same car ten times, or can you get that trophy by washing ten cars once?
 
Crosspromotion with the movie and game in Sony's new video service - if you buy the movie you get a voucher code for in-game credit, no other details yet. Meh.

"If you’re a PlayStation Plus Premium/Deluxe member, you’ll get access to a curated catalog of up to 100 movies"

I kinda like this , i was wondering when they will do that
 
I guess the GT-R GT3 will be available. If the movie costs $20, are $20 worth of credits equal to 2,000,000?

Sport mode being borked finally got me to check out the Meeting Places seriously since I was itching for some online driving and it was actually pretty enjoyable. They should advertise it more in like the menus or something imo, I get that lobbies sorta do the same but having an official hassle-free track day mode is very useful.
 
Oh hello there

This from Gran Turismo Movie

Both cars are literaly in game footage.

I don't use a lot of my premium features, I got it to play F122 Manager trial and barely play the other games, would love some Sony studios movies content.
 
... or Seattle Goddamnit.

Sorry. Been asking for it for what feels like 20 years.
I’m a little late on the reply but in my post history somewhere I did a breakdown on how Seattle would’ve needed to be changed - it wasn’t much at the time, but with the new construction on the waterfront for better walkability the route will need to be a lot different. Won’t really be able to break it all down till it’s all finished, which will be late next year.

The old layout was outdated by somewhere around 1998-2001, when the King Dome was demolished and an earthquake required the teardown of some of the Alaskan Way viaduct, mostly on the south end. The viaduct is completely gone now but the route was still drivable, just requiring a further extension south around the stadium, as the old route would’ve been straight through the football field.

The old U-turn at the start of the track will probably be gone entirely. I’d expect a right turn towards the city section somewhere else, probably more north than it was previously. There’s a chance the entire new waterfront road structure will be too skinny for a fictional race track entirely if it was to go off real roads though, or at least would require a completely different area of the city to be used for the pit straight.

That said, if it can be made to work, it would be a very pretty track:

I'm just here wondering why these tracks need to use the exact real life roads.

I'd be perfectly happy with something like the Grid Legends city circuits. Stick in some recognisable landmarks and make up the rest.
That's just always been PD since GT3. Whenever they've made street circuits (that aren't call "Special Stage" or "Clubman Stage), they seem to usually model them in a real location using the surrounding roads.

In "data leak" there is Vantage 18 but we will see if this is true or not

Well that looks to be the Aston Martin Vantage GT12 and it is from 2018 sooo...

Also worth nothing certain cars from Sport have gotten their Road or Race going counter parts in GT7. Notable examples include:

Nissan GT-R NISMO '17 = Nissan GT-R GT3 NIMSO '18
Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport '16 = Porsche Cayman GT4 '16
Ford GT '17 = Ford GT Race Car '18 (Actual name should be Ford GT LM GTE 18')

I only bring it up in this format because the original Seattle Circuit was done with 1:1 accuracy to late 90’s Seattle.

The new Grand Valley uses real landmarks but the whole track isn’t a 1:1 stretch of Pacific Coast Highway (State Route 1), so it’s possible PD would do some squeezing and squishing if they do some other IRL location/city based tracks. Then again in this case it’s not super necessary cuz a lot of Seattle’s landmarks are just already right there.

Grand Valley also kinda never had a real world location either so they naturally were abit more free with it when it came to plopping that track into a Real World location.

No no I don't want this for "street" circuits. Grand Valley works because it's not in a city.

The one from the movie looks more like the older one from '15/'16
Vantage '18 - tells me being the new Vantage AMR

not saying you are wrong but we will see :D

On the street circuits using real locations topic, with the new weather radar we now know they put every circuit in an exact latitude/longitude spot on Earth.

So I'd imagine any new fictional track, even if they brought back something totally fictional like SSR5, would then use trackside buildings and maybe some roads from around where exactly they put it on the globe.

I hope. I‘d rather see a new face.
