    I strongly assume that time change will arrive in a later update.
    Why? Besides the trailer and website indication, this track currently uses real-time shadows, something only tracks with time change use. So the base for time-change is already there, maybe it just needs some adjustments.

    Announcing DLC at an E3 conference is a bit silly in my opinion, at least they didn't spend 10 minutes talking about it.

    To be honest that attitude can be levelled at any improvement they make to the game? What single update would make the game not a bag of poop for you, or, what is it that other games have that GT doesn't that makes GT appear to be a bag of poop? Because, to me, it just sounds like you don't like racing/driving games.

    First impressions; I like this new track. Done a few laps yesterday in my KTM Street, was fun.

    It hasn't been altered since 1996 - this layout is the altered version of the old Osterreichring done by, none other than, Hermann Tilke (responsible for Bahrain International Circuit, the new Hockenheimring, Sepang International Circuit, new Fuji Speedway, etc). So what @twitcher was getting at is true.

    I guess they didn't include it because it has no pits.

    Suzuka west on the other hand... no idea. Just PD logic.

    Suzuka West was for the same reason you just gave. At least that's what Amar hypothesized.

    But aren't there pits on Suzuka west ? The building right before the bridge.

    I personally think that PD did this because Forza released the Long Beach for free (while the car is paid). Competition is great you know

    Both of them has kindness in its own heart. its just its parent company that dont allow to. (guess which)

    Sadly to this day, PD/Sony still lists Eiger Nordwand (the DIRT track) having weather changes and the ORIGINAL track with nothing. Either we’re getting mud tires in a future update or this is another “Oh well, who needs proof reading” or the ever famous “Translation Error”.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding @twitcher, but I read it that he played F1 2003 and raced on the A1 Ring and it was a different track as it is now, which it isn't, it's exactly the same.

    No they won't buy the game based off that alone and I never implied they would.

    I really doubt it. But I would pay for it. I always play on this track with changeable weather. Although the time is 3PM in afternoon it looks more beautiful. I love this track.

    We are already paying for it through the microtransactions on offer...

    Or at least a few rich, stupid people are. I'm guessing that it's the same reason why content on GTA V is free; except R* push you hardcore to buy money if you want to get anywhere.

    That's pretty much my unrequested theory. Microtransactions. Microtransactions and PS4s.

    They didn't include it because it can't be used in real life.

    The part that connects the track right there is actually a service area, not really suitable for racing.

    Actually most games out there have little content in comparison and yet they have season pass day1 DLC and what not. Polyphony are much better and update their game for free. So if they start charging it is reasonable as that is the standard these days.

    Having said that I agree once you purchased their game. Especially their fans who did day1, pre-order the anniversary edition like I did. We should get post launch support for free.

    Funny it is ,that at the time many of us were probably drooling over screenshots in gaming magazines > look how real it looks, almost like the real thing,3D graphics!!!... :D

    What game was that from?

    PS: Those "good old" VGA times required a fair amount of imagination [beside seeing what is on screen] .

    its a 1992 DOS game. It has a sequel before it becomes abandonware.

    It's a track made in editor for GP1. So quality is much worse than original circuits made for the game.

    Funny (or rather sad) thing is that AI and damage in Geoff Crammond's GP1 is still heads and shoulders above what we have in GT6.

    Honestly, I think this is the best work Herman Tilke has done on redoing a track. While its not quite like it used to be, its not overly complicated and bogged down the way Fuji is.

    Indeed, it was done before either he or the FIA decided pretty much every track had to have a slow, twisty section with no flow. I remember reading it was so advertising on both the hoardings and cars could be seen more easily, but I don't know how true that is.

    Agreed.

    Though I do understand the type of turns needed to make a modern F1 car actually slow down have to be quite awful for any type of normal race car, his tracks are still aesthetically poor.
