Wait, i think someone else is using Sethos' account. Or he's being massively sarcastic, in which case it is him. :p

Indeed, I always loved the Gran Turismo series - I did start out with a negative view on the game, especially after the prologue but that last time-trial demo showed me, they really had

improved handling tenfold and the game is shaping up to be a massive Game of the Year contender.

Yeah it was slightly in jest because I saw that Sethos was a fan of Prologue. It's just that i'm used to him being pessimistic in general :p

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!!

Yes, but it's America this time, so a better chance of the date actually being true.

It just seems to me that each time the game comes close to being released they announce it has some new feature that will set it back a few more months. Night Driving, Vehicle Damage, 1000 Cars, Track Editor, Go-Karts, Changing Weather, Top-Gear test Track.

Ya know what I mean? I've been following the release of GT5 on-and-off since Prologue released and I think they are simply dreaming to big with this and need to get it out of the door. They can release updates later over the internet or release another GT6 a year later etc

Seriously, go-karts? I know ragging on a product for including things is a bit questionable, but I think their project requirements have completely gone out of the window. They haven't got a clue about what they should, and what they should not include, they're sticking everything including the kitchen sink in this, which is nice, but you know, it's meant to be a racing game, and they're kind of going outside the scope of that. And it has for sure affected release dates.

Ah but you see it isn't! GT is NOT a racing simulator but a DRIVING simulator, so adding go karts make perfect sense to me. The game is interactive museum/tribute to all things that can be driven and the thrill of driving, always has been and always will be.

And yet it might not be. I won't trust the date until the game is physically in our hands. Where it belongs.

So you're saying the programmers are wiaiting for the graphics designers to catch up. And they are doing this by making new vehicles. Do you realise just how backwards that logic is? There's a couple of things wrong with that statement: 1: I know how games are made because my brother makes them. The graphics are actually usually the first thing done. The reason so many games are buggy is because the programmers are the ones pressed for time. 2: Introducing more vehicles is just adding work for the graphics designers. Once the programmers make the basic engine to the game, programming in new vehicles takes only a couple of minutes, while the graphics certainly won't. Perhaps it's the graphic artists they are trying to keep busy? I don't know.

What you seem to forget is that Gran Turismo from the start was supposed to be a DRIVING simulator, not a racing simulator. It's whole essence was to make a game that made it feel like you were driving the real car. Yes, it's always been centered around racing, but that's because just driving around would be boring. Still, there is that distinction, which is very important. What they used to do was spend a lot of time driving the vehicles to get a good feeling of them. Do you really think they are doing that with all the extras they are adding now? I don't. I also believe that if they are just haphazzardly adding in these extras, they might not have done the good job they always have with the primary cars in making them drive like the real thing. Also, as Vice said, every time the release date starts getting close, they announce some new feature they simply must have and push the date back a few months. They should just release the game and start work on the next one. They could have released 2 great games in this time frame.

      Sony confirms PlayStation Store closure on PS3, PSP, and PS Vita
      by João Carrasqueira



      Just over a week after initial reports came in that Sony would be shutting down the PlayStation Store on some of its older consoles, the company has now confirmed exactly that. In a notice on its website, Sony says the stores on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation portable will shut down on July 2, while the PlayStation Vita will shut down on August 27, the exact dates mentioned in the earlier report.

      Over the weekend, some users noticed that the old web version of the PlayStation Store, which included the ability to buy games for these older platforms, is no longer accessible either. To be fair, Sony launched a new web portal for the Store in October and warned that only the platforms on that store - the PlayStation 4 and 5 - would be supported going forward, but the old version was still accessible until recently.

      Until the closure of the PlayStation Store on each of these consoles, you can still buy games for them through their own built-in stores. After the closure, though, you won't be able to buy games, movies or other video content, or in-game purchases on these platforms. You also won't be able to redeem gift cards that give you wallet funds.

      However, if you have vouchers for specific games or PlayStation Plus subscriptions, they will continue to work after these dates. You'll also still be able to re-download any content you've purchased, as well as games claimed through PlayStation Plus - as long as your subscription stays active. Should you have any funds in your wallet after the closure, you can use them on newer platforms or request to have them refunded to you.

      While the closure of the PlayStation Store on older consoles may be upsetting to some users, all of these platforms are pretty old or irrelevant. If you've been holding off on a specific purchase on these consoles, now is the time to do it.

      Sony reportedly shutting down PlayStation Store on the PS3, Vita, and PSP this summer
      by João Carrasqueira

      With the PlayStation 5 now out in the wild and slowly making its way to gamers (and scalpers) around the world, Sony seems to be planning to shut down the PlayStation Store on a number of its older consoles. This is according to a report by TheGamer, citing sources familiar with the matter, and it indicates that you'll soon be unable to buy digital games on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation Vita.

      The first platforms on the death row are the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable, whose stores are set to close on July 2. It makes sense for these platforms to be shut down, seeing as both consoles are two generations old at this point, having received successors even before the PlayStation 5. The more recent PlayStation Vita is getting cut off on August 27, almost two months later.

      The PlayStation Portable was first released on December 12, 2004 in Japan, and throughout 2005 in other markets. It was Sony's first portable console and it competed with the Nintendo DS, and it was fairly successful, with an estimated 80 to 82 million units sold in its lifetime - the last official number is 76.4 million and refers to March 2012, but units continued to be sold for a while after that.

      Meanwhile, the PlayStation 3 was released in November 2006 in Japan and North America, and despite a slow start due to its ludicrous launch price, Sony turned the tide and sold 87.4 million units of the console (as of March 2017), beating out the Xbox 360 by a small margin.

      As for the PlayStation Vita, it's the most recent of the three consoles, but it's also the least successful. Launched in late 2011 in Japan and early 2012 worldwide, the PlayStation Vita is the successor to the Portable, and it sold so poorly that Sony stopped reporting sales figures in 2012. You can't find any sales data for the console on Sony's corporate page, either, but it's estimated the console sold 16 million units in its lifetime. Because of that, despite being more recent, it wouldn't be surprising if Sony is discontinuing the PlayStation Store on it as well.
