    I never considered that.

    So, if this was started so long ago, why’d they wait until a week before to announce it?

    And I’m not saying they didn’t start this a while ago, but it seems fishy no?

    You’d think if they announced it earlier, they could get more media coverage, more re-reviews, and maybe even hype up some big update that would coincide with the launch of Spec 2. It seems like an odd way of doing things.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I highly doubt there are going to be any re-reviews of the game just because a second disc was released with all the updates on it.

    You may be right and with the last minute announcement, it’s more likely, but because it is a new physical copy, they could’ve had it re-reviewed which should get a better score than it did at launch.

    Street Fighter V’s Arcade Edition was basically the same thing (though with a major update that coincided with its release), and it got re-reviewed to much higher scores than the base game.

    How is it pointless? This is good for new customers.

    I luckily bought this in a bundle with the PS4 Pro. 330€, less than that and it would be a theft.

    Wait, what, if you buy the digital version now, you have to download all the updates? Sony doesn't have the disk space to store a copy of the already patched version for fresh installs? Is this 1989 :lol:

    I still want to switch to the digital version some time, this week would have been good for it, but still a bit too much just to buy again for convenience.

    (Does that mean you have to wait half an hour each time for the game to copy for each patch? Can't be?)

    It sounds more like a thing rockstar would do with gta. I hope its more than just bringing updates on disc, i do t see Much point with this, and showing it like this, it should be better, in gt5 there was new content with the spec upgrade. And gt5 was not really lacking content in campersion to gt sport.
    They need to keep bring new cars and tracks every month or the game will just die out. And at this point i would guess more people waiting for gt7. However i don’t expect the Porsche taycan or Any new content on Friday as we already got 4 cars this week.

    Michelin has already been added into the game. Plus spec 2 is just a rerelease with most of the updates.

    I thought Spec II is going to be some kind of B-Spec in GT4. But, oh well..

    No, you’ll just have to download one big file.

    I cracked and bought GTS last night (didn’t feel like waiting for Spec II, and I felt like earning the cars and credits myself), and I just had to download one massive file that was nearly 100 GBs.

    Tire Technology by Michelin applicable to the game's established Hard,Medium and Soft, that suggests a TireModel Change.

    To clarify. Yes, the Spec II release is a 2-disc edition with existing updates. But in the history of Gran Turismo these Spec milestones are accompanied by content updates and other changes.

    The model has changed somewhat with monthly updates. So I wouldn’t expect anything greatly out of the ordinary in terms of cars & tracks. However, I do think PD could adopt Spec II branding and other changes. IE a new intro, music, UI update. All speculation, but not without bases.

    Let’s also consider two new GTS SKU’s are being released. A PlayStation Hits version and Spec II. Spec II may indeed just be a way to differentiate the two. But given the upcoming 2 year anniversary, it could also be PD preparing for 2.00.

    Would've totally bought it if it came with that stupid Audi R18 which can only be won via the Daily Roulette. I'm gambling for the damn thing for half a year now.

    The R18 is very cheap, only 1 million...

    They certainly are referring to the Le Mans 2011 version (which is the same but is dirty and cannot be purchased).

    Oh, I completely forgot about this detail.
    I went to check my garage and I saw that I won this car. (Good thing I didn't get rid of any cars). :scared:
    Sorry @Pancake90. :sly:

    Lol GT Sport will also have to have Spec 2.0 first before Spa comes in, just like GT5 way back in 2011. Coincidence? Most likely. :lol:

    ...I think it's worth mentioning that we've seen Daiki Kasho making new music back in May, so unless he's saving his new stuff for GT7 (which I really doubt considering it's at most two years away), so far all signs point to Spec 2.0.

    Plus the fact that, as repeatedly mentioned, Spa hasn't arrived yet as well as the new tire model...

    I think it'd be unwise of me to automatically dismiss the possibility of an announcement at the next World Tour event in Tokyo.

    But that's just me.

    I have won 3 of that Audi R18 TDI 2011 (Le Mans) now while some are waiting for their first.

    So, uh... completely useless for me. In 20 racing events (KTM X-Bow at Dragon Trail seaside, nerfed to the top of N300 class) I can get all these 450k cars... yes, I know. I'm not the best driver and I rarely get clean events.

    The 2,5M doesn't interest me either at all.

    The way the PS4 handles patches in terms of reading changes to data is very clever and saves quite a bit of time! It's a shame it suffers from reporting issues with disc space even when you have plenty.
