    According to the beta forum July 16 is the end of the beta test. It also says to stay tuned for more testing later on.

    I haven't played it since the 1.08 update due to having fantastic, hot weather and I just don't wanna be indoors all the time. Better make the most of these next few days on Beta; it's the only game I play on the PS4!

    Is it necessary to keep the files of the beta on the hard disk of the ps4 for the final game or another beta in August ?? :idea: To optimize future installations

    Will most likely be a new download, but keep it to be safe

    Must be the expanded feature-rich beta next month that Kaz mentioned earlier, then.

    Hope Scapes are in it this time.

    So it might come back in August so the game might come out in November or next year if it gets delayed again.

    I had to get more storage for all the racing games so far this year and I went for a Seagate 3.0 USB External HDD 4TB for lots more external storage. I picked one up for just over £100 and it is plug in and play easy to use :tup::cheers: https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/thre...eral-discussion.239334/page-309#post-11869819

    Oh well, keep getting ten second slow down penalties for the crime of being rammed from behind by no break Nigel's anyway...

    Not sure what the norm for a Beta is, but four months seems very long. Hopefully PD have gathered some useful data and have put the necessary stress on the servers.

    I see GTP is pushing the 177 cars / 19 tracks again despite Kaz stating 140 / 15 in several interviews.

    I assume this is properly verified now and not just stating info from the E3 press sheet.

    My left brow is furrowed in disappointment but my right brow is lifted in excitement if we get another beta come August.

    TIL releasing two somewhat substandard games means your credibility as a series is tarnished to the point where it can be called a 'joke'

    We're all avid sim racing enthusiasts here but I admire your strength to put the games aside and enjoy the sun when the weather is nice. I've failed on that myself most of the time this year. Unless I go abroad on holiday, then suddenly you realize all these games don't matter much. :)

    Cheers man!

    If there is another beta in August, it had better be up to higher snuff than what I've seen so far. Plus it should really be a public beta for proper server stress testing for Sport Mode. Those E3 comments about server costs preventing a full open beta sound like total BS to me.

    So, are we admitting that the last above standard GT game was Gran Turismo 4, released in December 2004?

    If so, yea, that's a complete joke. Let me use my math skills: that's approximately 13 years.

    I'm gonna have to agree with you on that. While I'm sure their servers are hosted with Azure or AWS so I'd have to assume there'll be some load balancing and all that jazz. But yeah, even a quick public beta would give a great sample size to get data from.

    Like @Gravitron said, 'It's in the name of science!" :lol:

    What is your definition of "above standard" though? Decent? Good? Great?

    I think all GT's were at least good, but it's been quite some time since the franchise has been overall great, in my opinion.

    Substandard - below the usual, or required standard.

    The standard for GT is that the game is meant to be incredibly good.

    GT5 and 6 weren't the dumpster fires that some people make them out to be, but they weren't amazing either. They were ok, but they didn't meet the standard. Substandard.

    There are 6 mainline games in GT (discounting Sport). 4/6 of them are incredible. That's 66% of all the games that they've released. 2 of them aren't as good to most people. That's 33%.

    Explain to me how PD are a joke if their track record clearly states otherwise.

    I'll wait.

    The last above standard GT game in your opinion.
