    Some optimism at last instead of ranting and frustration. It's very refreshing and I agree with you. They must realise they're behind somewhat in whatever schedule they may have set themselves and want to get a lot out in one update. Or they're just slow at pushing these features out.

    Awwww and here was me sharpening my pitchfork ;) :p
    On topic, I'm just happy to know an update is coming, whether it has what everyone wants in it is another question.

    PD is a tortoise. It is slow. It's always been slow. This is nothing new. PD is sure and steady. I wish people would stop desiring PD to be a hare. The tortoise will still be racing for 100 years after the hare is dead. ;)

    Fingers crossed for update, this feels like having birthday presents what are only empty boxes and parents are saying: "you'll get actual present later, maybe tomorrow". Tomorrow comes and asking for my present and parents are just saying:"don't worry, we said you'll get it tomorrow". After few weeks of asking they finally give a real present, toy what they promised, but broken one, when asking possibilities to get it fixed got only answer: "tomorrow" and story continues and next birthday comes closer.

    Feels a bit same with PD and GT6, probably this "tomorrow" story just continues until there is time to buy GT7..

    Lol

    Assuming PD isn't one of the multitude of tortoise species (about half of the known species) now nearing extinction, mainly due to the inability to adapt to current environmental conditions and increasing human threats. ;)

    The problem with that is the average gamer doesn't have the patience. They will most likely lose more customers that way. I know I'm starting to wear thin and I love GT6, think about the people who just like the game. Now since there is competition PD needs to step up to the plate. At the very least just have routine communication on why casuals should still hold on to their game.

    But is that primarily the tortoises' fault, or that of "human threats"? I think this analogy has been stretched too far!

    Hehe, probably, but I have a funny habit involving seeing far more levels to an analogy than originally intended. :O

    Edit: I also have been giving the question quite a bit of thought. I came to the conclusion that if the destination remains the same, then the journey only matters if it's not too late to change the course, (and thus the destination).

    Whoops. Unintended collateral damage. My apologies. ;)

    Definitely no shortage of those who would agree, at any rate. :lol:

    Update has to come.
    Undeniable dilemma.
    PD's delays not a burden
    Anyone should bear.

    If there were no rewards to reap,
    No course creator to see me through,
    this tedious path I’ve chosen here,
    I certainly would’ve buy an Xbox by now.
    And I still may, and I still may, and I still may, and I may...

    Gonna wait it out.
    Gonna wait it out.
    Wait it out...
    Gonna wait it out.....

    ;)

    From what I read on the Rock Band Forums. It takes 3 weeks for updates to games to pass Sony's testing. They want to make sure that it's going to work on all versions of the console. I read this as there is an issue with the update, and it's getting fixed.

    Put the hammer and the nails away.

    I've heard that same tried and true story tons of times, without actual proof of it by higher ups...

    I just have one question for @Terronium-12 , @Wardez , or @Jordan .... If there was an "announcement" about an upcoming update mentioned some 20 pages earlier, than why wasn't a formal news announcement created on the home page?

    Aren't those created once it actually comes to fruition not beforehand I thought....?

    What announcement? All I can find 20 pages back is wishful thinking.

    I'm not entirely sure you're aware of what you're suggesting.

    We could very well make an "announcement" of sorts on the news page - but to what end? We don't know what it's going to contain, when it's coming, or anything remotely useful that constitutes news. Sure, this was said and that was said, but nothing is final until the very last moment, and I mean that quite literally. At this juncture it'd be nothing but a rumor column and that's not what the news page is for.


    When there's something to report you can rest assured you'll see it on the news page, but until then, we're along for the ride just like everyone else.

    For the most part. :p

    yeah we don't want the news section to go the way of this thread. news is for real concrete info. forums are for rumor and speculation.

    My question is why, (in regards to Jordan's post). Why post at all?

    Stirring the pot or curbing the tide?

    I asked him if he knew the window for release. He posted said window and hinted at Geneva.

    What is starting to concern me is the size of any next update? :confused:

    I mean, with how quiet PD have been, have they been burning the candle at both ends?
    Will the "next" update be HUGE?

    The last major updates (I can't recall their size) were quite large, and my snail internet literally took ALL night to download.
    The first update, I actually got up the next morning (8 hours later) and it was stuck at 40%. :indiff:
    Any size that is significant is going to be super slow, THIS has me concerned. :nervous:

    More big name companies should leverage peer to peer downloading. Imagine how much faster you could download updates! I remember Metal Gear Online did this.
     
  27. Well, you're right.

    Language, here. So I hope that's enough to not be given a warning. I don't wanna break the rules of the AUP. NSFW because of the language...



    Respect (handshake and chest bump...CHI-Town!)

    GT6 maintenance is scheduled for every week, it's written in the notifications section of the game.
