    I don't think it'd change the driving of anyone. But the issue is more that people would go beyond PSN messaging and to their FB, IG, social media.

    Like many things beyond video games, some people just find comfort in negatively effecting other people.

    But past something we'd never see on a console game, I have a feeling this update has to do with the BOP update.

    Waiting for the time honored tradition of the lengthy process of copying.

    The updates get smaller and smaller yet the copying gets larger and larger with every update it seems.

    Would make sense since it’s copying the entire game not just the update.

    They reduced bumper car physics!

    Main Features Implemented
    1. Sport Mode & Lobby
     - The amount of shock during contact between cars in a race has been reduced. There will now be less deflection off of another car after a contact. (The amount of shock during contact between cars in Lobby races remains unchanged.)

    Other Improvements and Adjustments
    - Fixed an issue in the Livery Editor with the 'MAZDA RX-VISION GT3 CONCEPT' wherein the racing car number placed on the bonnet appeared distorted;
    - Fixed an issue with the 'MAZDA RX-VISION GT3 CONCEPT' wherein applying the car settings or Balance of Performance (BOP) in Regulation Settings on an oval track incorrectly changed the engine sound.
    - Various other issues have been addressed.

    Didin't feel like it in the Daily Race B I was in. I got hit on the side and it was annoying. I was ablt to maintain control. Many players spun out, due to contact.

    Seriously this cannot be the best way for PS4 games to be updated

    It's the only way and yes it is bad. So much so that not having this system is actually a selling point for the PS5. :lol:

    Dirty drivers will be dirty drivers regardless. The problem for a long time has been clean drivers, or drivers trying to race cleanly, accidentally giving a slight tap that results in the other car pinballing off the track. This often leads to an escalating situation as the driver perceives the tap to be a deliberate ram. I haven't seen the new physics yet but lessening the effect should be a good thing.

    I'm pretty sure the copying files things is just Gt Sport although it's been a while since I updated another game on the PS4

    When I played more often on the ps4 other games certainly never went through that process.

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare / Warzone suffers the same thing.

    Many games do that. Seemingly the ones that are updated regularly.

    The copying process is actually rewriting the entire game install.

    With a game the size of GT Sport this can take while.

    I like the idea of this if it works, seems a very experimental thing though if it's only for sport mode and not including lobbies. Now I have my pedals back (finally!), I'll have to take what is going to be my daily race account for a few spins to see if I get smashed off track or just nudged

    Has anyone had first hand experience of the new physics in sport mode? I don’t mean going out and ramming the **** out of everyone to see if it’s changed. Maybe you could get a friendly driver to get punted or to punt you during warm up?

    It just depends on the game's size.

    If the update size is just over 340mb why has my update failed saying I have to delete 18.12GB out of space. I just got rid of Resident Evil Resistence which was 24gb and that's still not enough. What's going on?

    The PS4 filesystem requires you to have enough free space to copy the entire game you're updating - because that is precisely what it does.

    Is it not specific to GTS? I don't remember having that kind of issue with any other game...

    No. Mark Cerny even made specific mention of the fact that games on the PS4 (and PS3) do this, and that they won't on PS5, during his tech presentation.
    GTS is very large, and updated often.

    The benefit of this method is that it helps to prevent file corruption. - as stated here: http://www.pushsquare.com/news/2020/03/guide_why_does_ps4_copying_update_files_take_so_long

    I doubt the corruption part, but hey, what can you do?
    Well, at least corruption in the event of power loss is eliminated.
