Let's hope there's no delays this time around. 117 new cars at launch, but only 2 new tracks, which is a bit disappointing (every single car and track from GT5 is in GT6). :/

I have to say, I would have expected the next Gran Turismo game to be released on the PS4. It could have been a great launch title. Maybe they'll release a PS4 version with even better graphics and exclusive cars/tracks.

Wow, that's pretty sad. Might as well just make it a DLC to GT5.

It's a new game engine, how are they suppose to do that?

Ahh yes, I just re-read the GTPlanet article; 7 new [b]locations[/b], 33 in total (although [url="http://www.gran-turismo.com/local/jp/data1/products/gt5/courselist_en.html"]the official GT5 site lists 27 locations[/url], meaning there should be 34 in total).

Have to say though I am looking forward to the new engine, the communities, and the device compatibility. Maybe we'll finally have an official way of doing B-Spec races on the PC? We all know how much of a grind B-Spec is in GT5, so being able to do it away from the PS3 would be a godsend! :p

I agree, but at the same time, I think it speaks volumes for Sony in keeping up the life of their devices, just as they did with the PS2 for a good while there.

I really wanted this to be a PS4 game. But, it's all about the game engine and physics, and I'm certainly interested to see what PD have done. It whiffs of the GT Prologue games, which I never felt comfortable with ... like I was paying them to beta test their new game, then paying them again when it was eventually finished.

I'll check out a demo, but it needs to be something special this time round for me to part with my cash.

I'm really hoping they do something to fix the standard cars that were found in GT5, though I imagine they'll likely carry over as is, which is pretty disappointing. Personally would rather quality than quantity, though hopefully that will be fixed by the time they do their PS4 release. Looking forward to trying out the demo come summer to see what the new engine is like.

That's what I would like to know. All things considered, GT5's damage was a step in the right direction, but was still lacking compared to every other racing game with damage on the market.

Car sounds on GT is a huge topic of discussion by itself

Yup the sounds really need improved in GT6. "Realistic" or not in GT5, they just do not sound full enough. I'm sure we can trust PD, we do not want unrealistic bass thumping roaring for everything either (what most people think sounds the best), only those cars that genuinely sound like that.
