    He's talking about GTS on PS5 backwards compatibility. That obviously won't have different physics, because it's the same game

    Same game, different machines. It doesn't seem so obvious to me. ;)

    Past experiences with pre-launch info on forthcoming GT games have typically been that info and details arrived in large batches that were few and relatively far between. Long delays haven’t been unusual either, because that’s what Kaz does if he still sees obvious room for improvement.

    I wouldn’t read too much into it, but of course things are unusual nowadays with the pandemic and conventions getting cancelled everywhere. News will come when it will come, and until then I prefer not to overthink things. Some GT Sport DLC would be nice though, just to confirm that PD is doing well.

    The physics engine is part of the game, not part of the console. There's no reason for it to be different on PS5. The only thing that could change is that the game runs a bit smoother on PS5, but that will only affect the framerate, not the handling.

    Thank you.

    With COVID, it's reassuring to know that they are OK :)

    Thank you!

    This was the aspect I meaned when I called them slow.
    I should have called them „unreliable“ and maybe „loud mouths.

    Anyway - as soon as a release date is confirmed I get myself a PS5.
    Maybe a bundle then.

    They never said that GT7 would be a launch title but most of us hoped so.

    Explaining the reasons don't take away the fact they're slow. It's obvious they're slow, I'm just explaining the reasons. They really do have low employees, especially at 130-ish, in GT1-GT6 time. And yeah outsourcing is done to make a work faster, PD didn't do it, hence they're slow.

    You right, people should low their exceptations otherwise be disappointed it's inevitable... So I agree :)


    Yeah, considering GT is such a hyped game would be very strange to not have shown if it was a launch game, the fact that we hadn't any ps5 Announcement in ps5 16 september showcase, it means that game NEEDS more time to be finished, it's still in development stage altough maybe advanced stage, but it will definitely not come in 2020 so people need to get over it and know that holiday release is 98% unlikely unless miracle happen, but miracles don't happen so..... It will launch in 2021, could be Q2,Q3 or even Q4 but it's a 2021 game, that's what is sure.


    Hoping kaz will not delay it to 2022-2023 but I hope not!


    They have 200-250 employers now with outsourcing and everything, they had 170+ in 2018-2019, now more than 200!

    In other words: 170 was never enough and we can see it with our own eyes in the past 3 installments.
    I've always heard about T10 having a minimum of 300 employees. That's one of the reasons why they can dish out content way faster than PD.

    I disagree. You just can't compare it by the pure staff numbers. You don't know what tasks are give to other Sony units (Marketing, ...) and you also don't know how much workload is outsourced during the production of the game. Look at the cars that are created by the guys from India. Another point you have to consider is how many assets and other things are taken from older installments in both GT and Forza.

    Again, they already had "about 200 staff members" in 2017, from Kaz himself

    Of course you can disagree. I wrote staff number is one of the reasons. Not the reason.
    I just take a look back at what we've been given since the PS3 era and the release of GT5. I've been following T10 and PD (and playing FM and GT). Satisfaction vs no satisfaction. Features vs no features. Licenses vs no licenses. Cars vs no cars. No duplicates vs duplicates. And so on.
    This is not a fanboy war. I defended PD, then I gave up because GT6 and GTS were still disappointing for me.
    I'm not expecting a good/revolutionary GT7. The fault is always PD's and Sony's, in every way.

    Zero new info were given at the recent playstation event. I highly doubt Sony and PD will let some select youtubers "play" GT7 at this stage. Not even let them move through the main menu.

    It's cool that Playstation is going to let creators show off the console instead of doing it themselves, we may get to see more because of it. With that said, there is no way in hell more GT7 gameplay be revealed on some random YT creators channel. The only way I could maybe see it, is if Jimmy Broadbent was one of the YT's to demo the PS5 on their channel with GT7... but that's assuming GT7 is even close to being in a playable state.

    Pretty obvious they're only going to be playing launch titles to generate further interest in the new console. I know people are desperate and Saidur likes to have his wild predictions (Have Sony enabled 4K on PS Slim yet?) but you need to be realistic. Their focus is the launch of the console and the launch titles this year. As with Horizon, I wouldn't expect anything until early next year, assuming that releases Holiday 2021. If GTS is launching the same time, same deal.

    They want people buying consoles and games now and in the next few months, not thinking "Ooh that's out next year, I'll wait until then".

    Wouldn't be surprised that due to the limited numbers of PS5 consoles at launch that GT7 gets pushed for a mid-end 2021 release. Would surely be more profitable for Sony as we know GT is a system seller and I'm sure I'm not the only one waiting for a PS5 + GT7 bundle

    Nothing more than just teasers each and every time to generate hype or keep people interested.

    I don't think it's getting pushed to anything at the moment, I doubt it has ever been planned as a launch release.

    But a 2021 holiday release would make a lot of sense assumiong it's ready by then even.

    I doubt the limited numbers has anything to do with GT7 or has affected it in any way whatsoever. What would have been more profitable would be having it as a release title when all the hype is still high for the new console, but that's very, very unlikely to happen.

    Shows hourglass ticking... I wonder how much longer the wait will be

    I wouldn't mind one bit if it was a launch title and further DLCs/updates were provided to enhance the game

    The people running that account are waiting the same as we are, hence why they've been using the same single trailer to create buzz since June.
