Also I truly hope they'll fix the occasional on-line problem where screens 2 and 3 turn blank.

Well, one benefit from PD building the game around the feature would be that there is a greater chance of them rooting out bugs than when they patched it into the game after the fact like GT5.

Many people says, once you go triple-screen, you won't be going back. I must admit, I haven't tried it. I think, PD'll leave it, as it is in GT5. They probably fix the problems, but not more, I think.

What new code will need to be written if it is on the same console? I assume we will pick up where we left off in updates on GT5 to GT6 ( With the bugs they came with hopefully ironed out)

It's really stupid and worthless $$$ to buy three TVs, three ps3, and three gt6 discs. That's all about $2500+ of equipment.

When viewed against other hobbies, it's about right... I surely don't want to mention any comparisons to real life racing activities.

Most of us here already own PS3 accompanied with GT5 and so did I, thus I bought three new 23" displays with thin bezels 109 Eur each, two used PS3's with 120 Eur each. On top of that I needed two more GT5 games 20 Eur per game, so upgrade was 607 Eur. Worth every penny and all hobbies cost money :)

This is a big one for me. I have the triple monitors and the triple PS3s. As noted above, once you go triples its hard to go back. GT5 on triples looks great. Now I just need three copies of a GT6 game with multi-monitor support.

Is it the GT5 program or the PS3 that disallows the use of multiscreens. Can one not play GT5 on a PC and have multiscreen. Is GT5 only playable on the PS3 console. I'm confused.
Will GT6 support multiscreen.

The PS3 can only output to one screen, so you had to have 3 PS3's and 3 copies of GT5. All GT games are Playstation only, not for PC.

That's why i say Sony are not stupid to design PS4 with 3 HDMI port, they want people buy 3 unit so can earn more $$$.

Is possible 1xPS4 handle triple screen? But i don't think so Sony stupid to do this.

One PS4 couldn't handle the huge resolution increase of triple screen, no. Same reason it can't handle 4K resolution games on one display.

I'm hoping - Asking for GT6 to provide a DLC for the Other Screens.
Install to All PS3's from same Blu-Ray, but to get Multi-Screen to work, you run a DLC on the PS3(s) used for the Side views.

That Way you Don't Need to Purchase (3) Copies of GT6, just to have Multi-Screen

I've already got (3) PS3's , (3) 32" Screens, and (3) copies of GT5 ( purchased the other (2) from e-bay Cheap ), So my Multi-Screen is already setup, and I don't want to Give it up.. But it will Sux to have to Buy 3 NEW copies of GT6 just to have Multi-Screen

I want a DLC that Allows the PS3's for the Side screens to run with out the Blu-Ray Disk..
With the DLC, it won't let you Play the Game, but only lets you enter Multi-Screen mode.
So no disc needed.

GT6 already supports a three screen set up. If you look at the center screen you'll notice it's GT6 and not GT5.

Yes, because a vast majority of the people who will ever buy a PS4 will have it in triple screen.

Let's be honest with ourselves now. Triple screen is a feature that very, very few people use. Its existence was basically band-aided into place to appease the few people that demanded it, and also because it's a great tech showcase. However it's clearly requiring a rather unpractical setup in order to run it. Triple screen was never intended to be a mainstream option; the fact that you have to stitch together 3 consoles with 3 copies of the game is proof.

Don't be hatin'! ;) I too am anxiously waiting to hear whether or not GT6 will support multi-monitors. While I'd like to presume it will be carried over from GT5, as Chippy stated above it is not a widely used feature and I could see it being removed to make room for other features. But, it makes a very impressive display for any events they go to and that alone could be worth it to them to keep it in GT6. Since I have invested in the multi-monitors I would have a hard time purchasing GT6 if it did not support this feature, and would instead put that money towards a proper gaming PC where pretty much every game will support triples. It is true, once you've experienced the triple screens it's difficult to do it any other way. (Also, I have never experienced online room problems with my multi-monitors, and since only one of them is connected to the internet it should have no impact to online racing).

That is such a weird setup.. Like sitting in a giant car ^^ Probably works if you sit a bit further away though..
