Agreed. They seem to have completely lost the core concept of their own series. They said last year this game was completely ready to come out, yet they keep adding stuff. Just release the damn game
Everyone moaning about the go kart and trackeditor should stop complaining its not what delayed the release(by much anyway), some bugs, 3D support(a little) and the massive 1000+ cars is what delayed it. while they graphics designers were working away making the cars the programmers COULD have sat back and done nothing and just said our work is done! And for the last 2 years (minus a few bugs and the 3D which takes no time to add at all) chilled out. soit would delay release barely at all and if they didnt include everything including the kitchen sink after all this time you guys would be moaning what did they do in all that time!! it amazes me how a company can do something right for a change such as telling the programmers to get off there backside and do more while they wait for all the cars to be finish and people moan about it!!
look at it this way i can be 99.9% curtain when i say 3D,trackeditor, go-karts all together probably added maybe 4 months maximum to the project more like 1 or 2 months if you ask me all these features are being added while they wait for all the cars, tracks and graphical content to be made why waste that time telling programmers to sit on there backside and wait encase some gamers complain about a features they dont like which as we all know you can just NOT use.
as for those who say they lost there way added features outside scope of the game...not really its a racing simulator go-karting=racing, tracks to race on (homemade or not)=racing, 3D=racing more realistically so please where did the "REAL racing simulator" go off scope???? and the reason they went off there usual setup is a) why waste time as i said before may as well use time to add more. and b) gran turismo has always added more than was needed look at licence test in gt titles and secondhand cars first game to do a decent modding engine setup (fell behind alot since mind) all they are doing is adding more with the power the PS3 gives them.i do think the release is way overdue and should have been last year at the latest but if they are delayed because of wanting more cars and a bug or two why not make it up to us by doing something productive with the team who are idle like i dunno say add a track editor or go-karting maybe!!
be god damn greatful they didnt do what all the money grabbing titles are doing atm which is add items or features but only if you "pay for the DLC" no doubt it will come but most likely only the cars and tracks which is anoying but not as back as charging for different game modes and features like some games do!!
