    Does anyone still play GTConcept?

    I would still want a leaderboard
    But that alone is not useful

    :guilty:

    It's an inanimate object. It was never alive in the first place.

    If you're talking about whether anybody plays it still, I doubt many do, it was just a showcase for various manufacturers concept cars in the first place; The S Licence and Arcade mode expanded to take up an entire game.

    After GT3 came out Polyphony Digital did a series of spin-off GT games under the GT Concept name. The first was 2001 Tokyo Collection with cars shown at the Tokyo Auto Show that year. Next was 2002 Tokyo-Seoul featuring the cars from the last concept game plus new ones from the Seoul show. Finally 2002 Tokyo-Geneva came out and featured all of the previous ones plus new cars from Geneva that year. 2001 was a Japan exclusive, Tokyo-Seoul was only for Korea, but Tokyo-Geneva was a European and Asian title. Out of the three Seoul is the hardest to get, but lucky me just got a copy :)

    I would play it but it freezes after any race on midfield, I occasionally take the Zonda or Supra GT on Autumn Ring or Tokyo, or take the Clio around Tahiti

    I see GTC as a mini GT. It has a few cars, a few tracks and very few events. I loved the POD, I'd love to try and take the POD around the Nurburgring, It'd tale a while but it would be fun to hear the funny noises it makes while going around the carousel

    Is it the 2002 Tokyo-Geneva? That is the best of them, it has all of the cars (Including the 2002 SL500) from the 2001 versions. Also if you finish all licences and win on every track you get 10 Mil to transfer to any Gran Turismo 3 Game Save

    They're not easy to find. You should try emulation, but sticking to the rules I can't explain to you how to emulate games.

    Its amazing that you managed to acquire a full set of these discs. All of them are ridiculously rare and as a GT collector myself I have never seen any of them for sale anywhere. Awesome :drool:

    I recently picked up the Tokyo-Geneva 2002 version at a game shop out on holiday. I've never played GTC before. Should be a blast :D

    Edit: I've come to the conclusion that the disc doesn't work.... Damn it... T_T

    GTC remade (October 19th, 2019) will be a hell of a lot of fun when it comes out. If it comes out...

    I'm still on the hunt for Gran Turismo Concept Demo Discs.

    I managed to acquire a copy of the Gran Turismo Concept Airtrek Turbo Special Edition Trial lately, I believe this game was only distributed to people who purchased a Mitsubishi Airtrek new that year in Japan so its among one of the harder ones to find, with the Prius Trial Version being the most common. The Lupo version on the other hand is nearly impossible to acquire as it was given out to what must have been no more than 20 people. There is also a Subaru version that was used in a simulator, this one wasn't given out and no GT collectors own it.

    The Airtrek version features two tracks, Swiss Alps and Autumn Ring, with one drivable car.

    GT:Concept needs to have a comeback because we Americans didn't get a chance to play the original games like, 2002 Tokyo-Seoul (Hyundai's first appearance in the series) and 2002 Tokyo-Geneva. (I know, I didn't say 2001 Tokyo because it was Japanese-exclusive)

    I bought GT Concept yesterday and gave it a run, until I noticed this car.
    I was like: "Blue Zonda?! Let's drive it a bit." :D

    I only ever owned the 2001 Japan version. Still my favorite game of the series as I love real life concept cars (not the fictitious VGT stuff).

    Today I found something interesting. When you press the triangle button on the main menu, the game will automatically play a number of demos, like in GT3 and GT4.
    Each demo is followed by a ~10 seconds video which advertises GT Concept. I will try to upload them tomorrow, or alternatively post some pictures from them. ;) :tup:

    EDIT: Pictures from video 1
