    Your feelings about GT's reputation don't change the fact that all games released on the PS3 after the PS4 release, didn't sell nearly as well compared to their historical sales, and those released on both platforms did about as well on PS4 as on PS3, even with games released right at the launch of the PS4. Statistically there was no way GT could achieve the same level of sales when hardcore gamers and early adopters snapped up and began using PS4's by the millions.

    Which other games outsold GT6 on PS3 after the PS4 launch?

    Not sure how using examples out attitudes and opinions from fan forums negates the fact that the wider audience for this game knows nothing about this vitriol and could care less. Most GT fans are very casual fans, GT5 and GT6 user stats provided by Sony back this up. A pretty trailer with pretty cars and great graphics is all that was needed to suck them in in the past, and it's all that will be needed this time as well. IMO of course.

  2. You underestimate how many people are programmed to not think, me and my mates had many discussions on what was bad about GT5 \6 and why i wont be buying another GT. We all agreed on every point, this is recent too, then one of my friends from this discussion the other week said he saw GT7 ( Yes GT7) on a TV in a store, graphics looked amazing he said, I'm really waiting for that now he said. Graphics sold him, with not a single piece of info about the game. It doesn't seam like he will be getting it now as i wont but that shows you how people can forget everything when pretty graphics are flashed in their face.

    At this point it probably makes more sense to just cancel GT Sport and just put GT7 out this Christmas with what's left. Cancellation isn't a failure, nor is it something they haven't done before (GTHD).

    The GT Sport ship sinks a little everyday and people weren't exactly hyped to the unconunconditional degree we were with GT5 to begin with. GT7 can bring that hype back.

    Remember, the game was only around 50% complete in May. Then 70% in August. The game should be complete this month. Tested next month(dont know if it takes a month to test a game). Cleaned up and distributed March, for April release.

    Seems like PD have gone into "Lockdown Mode" and the release,as far as I'm concerned seems unlikely even this year.

    Hope I'm wrong.

    To me it was obvious once the game was delayed that it will release around same time next year otherwise they would have given the date or even month of release but they obviously din't :idea: If they are happy with the content of the game already and got it ready in summer it self. They will probably add more cars, tracks and polish the game rather than releasing it. My guess is release date will be revealed at E3.

    Not sure if serious :lol: They released GT5P which did not have even half of the content GTS has and it was very successful. GTS will do reasonably well. Pcars2 and Forza7 will probably release this year as well so it will be a good reference how these game stack to each other.

    I look at it like the vitriol is a symptom of a larger discontent with the consumer base (I don't base this opinion exclusively on fan forums). Besides, couldn't user stats be interpreted another way? That players got bored pretty quickly with GT5 and GT6 and therefore weren't interested in playing through all the events nor collecting all the cars, and not necessarily that the majority of players are very casual.

    Edit: Maybe I should give this topic a rest now. I realized that I've been keeping this tangent going longer than it probably should have.:boggled:

    Asked Shuhei on Twitter about the release date and he responded with Not yet and cute emojys (typical Shu :lol: )

    I'm guessing we won't know anything as they're full steam ahead on Horizon.

    Could be, but it could just be that scapes went really smoothly and they ran into problems with other things. No need to assume that they prioritised scapes.

    I do sort of wonder how well a photomode only game would go. It'd be pretty niche, I suspect.

    If March 31 is true well that nearly a 6 months delay from its original release date.

    Perhaps they've delayed it because they only had 15 tracks made (China Build), or possibly for Porsche?

    I'm sure at 99% it isn't. It's only two months away. It would be announced by now if it was.

    Things are announced 6 months or a year in advance. It's not anywhere close.

    Well it's already been announced as existing and had a release date, so I don't think it needs to be that far out. But as I said earlier in the thread even delayed games, when they get a new date, it's almost always around 3/4 months out, give or take.

    Also the other problem with the Mar 31st date is obvious. Even if Sony hadn't announced it yet If it were real and 'leaked' to retailers, others would have it listed by now. There is no way a random store in Hungary has found out the official date and nobody else. As if Sony have phoned up this store and told them the date but they've got to keep it secret, we're only telling you.

    I'd be happy with a pay to play online only beta at this point.

    I do my best with Assetto and Project cars to past time, but seriously missing GT.

    Gran Turismo 3 remastered for PS4 would be the only game I'd need until the PS5 debuts.

    Oh well.

    Which is why they won't do it. They want to sell you other games. :p

    This just in...

    I think the employees over at PD are volunteering down by the Mexican Border.

    Looks like November...

    Release date is Decembuary. :p

    They won't ever remaster GT3, Sony aren't even bothered making a PS2 to PS4 port even though it's one of the most requested games. Instead we get the worst and most obscure PS2 games.

    They won't do that because it would show up the PS3 era stuff big time. I suspect it would do the same with GTS as well.

    Hello everyone,
    What I know so far is that GT Sport MIGHT be released at the end of April.
    An insider of PD leaked it.
    His name is Amar, a famous Gran Turismo Leaker

    EDIT!
    I called Amar a PD insider while he is NOT
    He is a GT insider
    My apologies!

    Interesting user name. Do you have a link to this leaked information or are we just supposed to take your word for it?
