    Mr. Yamauchi was very clear, nothing will be abandoned like that :

    "Next Gran Turismo Will be a ‘Combination of Past, Present, and Future’"

    They should add more race cars to Gr.1/2/3/4 to help keep those categories fresh, but Sport Mode events also need a bit of an overhaul too. And this is coming from someone that's far more interested in road cars. I don't believe in dismissing the sensibilities of other players just because they don't line up with mine.

    Kaz says a lot less things that people speculate here.

    He's always very cautious about promises.

    I mean, things can change a lot in development. Crash Bandicoot Twinsanity even pokes fun at its own development, at one point.

    That quote could still technically end up being true, too. I suppose I'd appreciate more transparency, but when how dynamic development and the overall design process can be, I suppose I can understand why all some may be able to offer is relatively cryptic statements.

    It's like the saying, "Don't make promises you can't keep."

    Thanks for saying exactly what I think.

    I bought this game exclusively because of Gr.3 and Gr.4, and it's sad to see that almost nothing new has been added to these categories. Instead we had a lot of road cars and old race cars.

    Because GTS is a Gran Turismo game. Good for it !

    A piece of art and a living museum of every era. Racing and not racing cars.

    And just to go for a different topic because of the once again need for race cars..... (even I want new race cars but I'm just playing the waiting game and not rant about it)

    I'm curious to see how much they'll increase the price tag of that Ferrari 365 since (except for the 250 GTO, 330 P4, and the Ferrari Enzo) the other Ferraris that were added had a price increase.

    Pointing out that a game ostensibly about GT3/4/LMP1 needs more modern cars in these categories, or at least, vehicles that fit the parameters of said class (Looking at you Megane Trophy) and the vehicles given the past few months have been all but useless with this in mind is complaining now apparently.

    People are allowed to criticize free updates, especially when one takes into account what the game actually is designed to be, and what caused many fans to leave in the first place.

    As much as I love street cars, that's a pretty weak argument. You're basically telling a big part of the GT Sport player base to **** off with their grievances.

    I paid for a product, I'm allowed to complain and criticize all I want, especially when I paid for something that's not what it was when I did. Whether people agree or listen to my criticism is up to them.

    It should be noted, time and time again, as a matter of fact, that said player base is one that they tried to court and said **** off to the classic GT fan when they went in fully cocked to make a console iRacing. And now that they are trying to make up for lost time and patchwork a single player component that isn't just one off arcade mode races, said base has more or less been left out in the cold for months with peace offerings made every few months in retro racing vehicles shoved into moden classes, and the Super Formulas, which while nice, basically have never been used as much as Gr.1/3/4 have in Sport Mode.

    So really, Polyphony either need to **** or get off the pot, because the way they have communicated about GT Sport, since launch really, hasn't been good. Do they want this game to be an iRacing on consoles, or do they want to continue offering olive branches to classic fans? Fans which have a multitude of reasons to not buy into what PD is trying to sell, and the olive branches being single player that simply doesn't work now in this day and age because Polyphony can't be arsed to put in the work and not make it a total rabbit chasing simulator?

    Why can't it be both? Why must Sport mode have 100% commitment? That'd be more boring than it already is.

    I feel that it can appeal to both bases. There's no reason that one group has to be ignored, but the execution has certainly left people feeling that way.

    Because the single player mode, as it stands, doesn't work because the AI is trash and the races boil down to chasing down the leader who has a near 30 second gap or more on you. I don't know about you, but that sort of stuff isn't fun anymore. It wasn't fun in 2010 either, and when you consider that other developers have managed to push great AI in single player campaigns, AI that fights and puts up a good race, what GT has done with GT League is simply laughable.

    Plus, if you look at the game now, and how Polyphony has operated, doing it both ways is simply impossible considering how they take their sweet time, and often times are focusing on one thing to the detriment of the other.

    It does work, there's more to the single player experience then just GT League (which sucks). Don't be overdramatic.

    Explain? I'm not seeing what you're seeing here.

    I like the idea of both.

    And honestly I just treat GT League as a place to grind credits. If I really want good offline competition, there's always Custom Race mode to suit my needs.

    It should be but PD apperantly like extremes, first they released the game with sole focus on race cars and online, and now they do a 180 and give just road and Gr.X (which could be useful if they figured out how to sort the classing sistem) for more than a year.

    GT League feels like an afterthought. Honestly, it plays like it was created by folks with a very casual understanding of past GT career modes. There are no championships, qualifiers, etc. Also, with tuning becoming simplified, there's no satisfaction in taking a beater and adding performance parts to make it race worthy. It's a shell of its former self. It's great for passing the time and earning credits, but it lacks the soul of past games.

    Let's not forget that the "offline" mode still exists in a game that requires internet to function.

    Also, rinse and repeat with the arguments in this thread. Getting old.

    Having been an early beta tester, I believe PD had the full intent of focusing on Sport Mode, and not a traditional offline mode. What they found in the beta though, that a large majority wasn't even using the online part, and was staying in the very limited arcade mode. This became so much of an issue for PD, they shut the arcade mode off, forcing people to online. I believe seeing this is what made them hastily prepare GT League, thus making it appear thrown together, because it was.

    Just my opinion, of course.

    "Three of the four consoles show the Ferrari 365 GTB/4 — also known as the Ferrari Daytona. "

    Most of the “GT3” :lol: cars in GTS are as fictional as Peter Pan.

    In my opinion this soul has been missing since GT5. Championships and modifications didn’t change much.
