    One of the biggest problems with the game and I would love to see a detailed answer/explanation. Where is the team currently ? Perhaps we could hear some new samples ? What is your aim with the new system ? Realism first and foremost or some fake "spicing up" ?

    Is the new sound system already worked out and everything is in production phase or it's still in the workings ?

    edit:

    And what about brake noise, up-shifts/down-shifts and exhaust "pop" (video) - are those being worked on for current/next game ?

    The question should go like this: WHY DO THE CARS SOUND LIKE VACUUM CLEANERS?

    EDIT: I don't mean to come off as an idiot, I just thought it was the most sarcastic way to ask them since they've been giving vague answers to the 'sound question'. Of course don't ask them like that.

    RedBull X cars has the greatest and most realistic tone. So can you apply to the other cars? Pretty please.

    I'd love to know what's the situation regards the so-called "placeholder" sounds that have been talked about, and when/if they will be replaced with genuine ones.

    Lol, I mean a straight forward question which they can't wiggle their way out of by giving vague answers.

    Sound sound sound sound.

    Please Mr. Kazunori, please dedicate your staff toward getting rid of the old terrible sound (transmission / dynamometer whine?), and give us some actual, real engine sound on all of the cars.

    Even as a huge Gran Turismo fan, this is very difficult to overlook.

    This is a big point. An overhaul has been mentioned. But not done yet.

    While the question at the top of this thread has much support. Hopefully it could be phrased better.

    Included in the question should be can we have volume sliders so we can set up the sound how we choose.

    e.g. volume %
    Exhaust
    Road noise
    Wind noise
    Engine noise
    Transmission
    Skid
    Tyre Scrub
    Brakes
    Track annoucers
    Other sounds (gravel/collisions etc)

    Also if the update won't happen in GT6 can't some of the best car sounds in GT6 be used as appropriate replacements for other cars with bad sound.

    I'd actually like my cars to sound like cars please. Especially muscle cars. Last time I checked a 1967 Mercury Cougar didn't sound like a vacuum cleaner.

    Why does every car sound like a vacuum cleaner, Kaz? For supposedly being "the ultimate driving simulator", there's an unbelievable amount of non-realistic things in your "sim" buddy.

    I picked up a good set of headphones the other day and I've actually noticed boost and blowoff valves on cars that I'd never heard before. They're there, PD's sound balancing just keeps them muted compared to exhaust and tire sounds.

    It's ironic that that video is so difficult to understand due to annoying music in the background limiting what you can understand of what the speaker is saying. I support what he is saying (I think)

    Better to rephrase your question: When will we hear about the promised "sound update".

    Quoting for truth. He never said it would be introduced on the PS3.

    I really want sound update more than anything in This Game, but if that is not coming Better use of current samples would fix a oot Things. For example why the Sauber C9 has same sample as Toyota TS020 when some racecar v8 sample such as in Ford GT LM Race car would be much more realistic and pleasant. And same With BMW Z4 GT3, just give it one of those older Nascar samples instead of What it now got. Then I could really enjoy my two favourite cars, now I havent even bought them in GT6

    ''Has there been a breakthrough yet regarding the new system for generating sounds, on which you've been working on for the past few years?''

    A simple and straighforward question. I believe an answer to the above should give us a hint or two what to expect in the future.

    Dear Kaz
    I love your games
    I've literally played all of them, including prologues, concepts, hell, even tourist trophy!
    Your games are amazing, and this is why it breaks our hearts that one thing that has been poor for a while is not being addressed;

    The sounds.

    I love your passion for cars, I too treat them as truly beautiful items feather than mere machines. And a lot of other people will think the same way. This is why I cannot understand why you are not paying any attention to one of the most important features of a car, one of the biggest things that makes them so good; their voice

    Please, me and basically the rest of gtplanet are LITERALLY BEGGING YOU TO PLEASE UPDATE THE SOUNDS.

    Please.

    I can understand why people say "vacuum cleaners" but I think PD needs some more specific feedback.

    1. Fix cars like the Diablos, the old Viper GTS, Veyron, Jay Leno's Oldsmobile Toronado and almost every single race car that don't even have a sound matching their engine type. This I think it's their highest priority.

    2. Then they can add a more realistic feel to the sounds, like crackles, pops, delays between shifting, more exhaust-less intake and other stuff that other games have been doing better than GT ever since the PS2 generation. (hardware is not an excuse, PD!!)

    As long as they do this right and not exaggerate like for example, the NFS Shift series (where the ridiculous sounds are so loud and distorted that they become absolutely unbearable), and stick closer to what Forza does, then they will be alright.

    PD can do it. Because when you have a company that is so knowledgeable about cars making V12's sound like V8's, then you assume it's because they don't give a damn about it. Right? .... Right?
