Gran Turismo 6 Thoughts/Predictions

38 posts in this topic

Gran Turismo 6 might be announced today and websites are saying it will be for the PS3. One thing that worries me is what if Gran Turismo 6 is just Gran Turismo 5 with a bunch of DLC and updates added? I am hoping Gran Turismo 6 is a whole new game with even better graphics, all the tracks from the previous GTs, all the standard cars built from the ground up, new tracks, simplified menus, better multiplayer, and fast loading times. Gran Turismo 6 might be built upon the Gran Turismo 5 core. Gran Turismo 6 may be announced, but we will have to see how long it takes to be released!

What do you predict and your thoughts for Gran Turismo 6?

New:

New screen shots of Gran Turismo 6 have been released! The menu appears more simplistic! According to this there will be 1200 cars (all premium?) and 19 tracks which hopefully have a lot of the tracks from the previous games!

My prediction: Will be delayed at least once, and not enough new content to justify the price tag.

I see it as a rushed-release to coincide with the 15th anniversary. They have a new physics engine which they'll dress-up in GT5's clothes. A half way house between GT5 and the PS4 game.

Also, it will be brilliant.

I am really hoping some of the best tracks will return like Grand Canyon, El Capitan, Grinderwald, Midfield, Test Course, Hong Kong, New York, Tahiti Maze, Apricot Hill!

I don't understand why they didn't make this a PS4 launch title...?

Because Polyphony is slow and if they had to switch to a whole new platform you'd be waiting 5 years for it.

In the past, Polyphony released two GT games for each console, GT1 and GT2 for the PS1, GT3 and GT4 for the PS3 and GT6 and GT7 for the PS3. Then for the PS4, they will have GT 7 and GT8. I think Polyphony has a release cycle in place for the playstation.

Hmm, for me it would just seem to make more sense to release it near PS4's launch to rival Forza 5 on the One, but I see what virtorio is saying :p

I think Polyphony needs to strongly reconsider Gran Turismo 6. They need to at least get a version GT6 for the Playstation 4 prepared for the PS4 launch! I think Gran Turismo 6 is being launched in the completely wrong time. First the PS4 is nearing announcement, and the Xbox One was announced and Forza 5 is coming out too.

Polyphony has dug itself into a hole now by releasing GT6 for the PS3! The only way out is if Polyphony changes plans and gets working on GT6 ported for the new PS4!

The actual sim racer audience is very small in the total console gamer audience though.

Hopefully GT6 for the PS3 won't be overshadowed by the release of PS4, it could be a huge deal breaker.

It will, not only that but it's getting stomped by the superior Forza 5. The fact this thread has been dead for months pretty much sums up the luke warm reception GT6 will get sadly. I totally understand why GT6 is on PS3, just the timing is completely wrong. This game should of been released a year ago not now! Anyway, since I don't plan to get a PS4/X1 straight away so I'll be one of the few handful actually getting GT6, personally I'm looking forward to it. On another note, did anyone notice PD seem to have lost the TopGear license to Turn 10? I'll be honest, I'll miss being able to race on the TopGear Test Track but with how abysmally they treated the license in GT5 I'm not surprised they lost it. Turn 10 really made use of it in Forza 4 and it looks like they plan to expand that association even more in Forza 5. 

 

EDIT: Yeah, seems MS bought exclusive rights to TopGear for Forza 5 (the track looks mind bendingly good on Forza 5 too). So no TGTT for GT6 :( oh well.

I don't have any plans to get either next-gen console, and I'm already fairly well-catered for sim racers with Project CARS and iRacing. But nevertheless, I'll be getting GT6 too, just not straight away this time around; I'll wait for it to drop in price. I spent so many hours and had a lot of fun in GT5, and GT6 looks like it'll be more of the same; the Goodwood Hill Climb already sealed the deal for me, but Brands Hatch and Bathurst are pretty nice additions too. :)

I'm not too fussed about the Top Gear Test Track myself. Ignoring that it is Top Gear, there isn't really anything amazing about it. Much rather have the Nordschliefe, for example.

Not as hyped for it as GT5, but I'm still looking forward to GT6 as I don't want a next-gen GT/Forza until there is wheel support. I'm sure I'll enjoy it if only for racing my friend round Bathurst and Brands Hatch like we used to in TRD3 (back when racing games had loads of really good tracks instead of just well known ones).

I don't recall MS actually buying exclusivity on TopGear. not for the track anyway. for a while they both had the license. sure PD simply decided not to renew ? if MS bought exclusivity you'd think they would announe they had exclusivity and not just that they had a license. or maybe they upgraded to exclusivity for Forza 5.

Mixed feelings about GT6. From what I read (correct me if I'm wrong): most cars will be a straight import from GT5. I'll wait this one out and watch some in-depth reviews before buying this one. Why? I'm afraid if I buy GT6, I'll be looking at nothing more than a polished version of GT5. Unless they make all cars premium... so I can drive my favorite cars using the dashboard cam. That'd be awesome, but I'm afraid that's just an utopia.

It could be not sure. Been trying to find out, all I could find was an quote from one of the producers on TopGear saying that they chose to go with Turn 10 because they were better aligned with what they wanted to do. Couldn't find a source for the quote so didn't link to it as it might of been made up. Haven't been able to find anything else, it's mostly speculation but does make sense when you think about it.

PD had a lot of TopGear content planned for GT5 when they announced the partnership and with all the delays all we got was a track and some novelty races and no branding to advertise they had it. The rumors had it Turn 10 had brokered a deal with the BBC during the delays (of GT5) for Forza 4 and the producers liked what they did and continued it with Forza 5. No idea how much is true but I am inclined to believe at least some truth in it. Take with a grain of salt.

Except that is exactly what GT6 is, a refined version of GT5. People expecting something brand new or just very different will be disappointed. The second release on the same platform is always a refinement. That said I'm sure there will be a few surprises. For example standard and premium models are no longer segregated and apparently the standard models have been "upgraded". No idea what that means but does sound interesting.

I agree. And for this it should be GT5.5 and cost
