    Polyphony Digital have opened up places for the upcoming GT Sport beta, with EU applicants now eligible to apply for a spot.


    Players interested in signing up for a place should visit the link HERE and submit your details and Sony Entertainment Network Online ID. As is the case with the recent US open beta application process, access to the game and online servers will be restricted to certain times during the day and successful applications will be informed of the details upon completion of the registration process.

    It has not been announced exactly how long the registration process will remain open, and with a game of such popularity as Gran Turismo it would be wise for those of you interested in taking part to register for a place very soon.

    Gran Turismo 6 is the current latest title from Polyphony Digital. GT Sport is scheduled for release during 2017 for Sony PlayStation 4.

    Don't forget to check out the Gran Turismo Series sub forum here at RaceDepartment to keep abreast of all the latest news and discussion around these racing games. We have a dedicated section for GT6 and for the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport release, so stay tuned for all the information as and when it becomes available.

    Will you be signing up for the closed beta? Excited about the new game finally hitting a public release? Do you think Polyphony can recapture the magic of the old Gran Turismo games? Let us know in the comments section below!

    Good luck with the application :)

    To whet the appetite somewhat, I'll just leave this here:


    I'm sure this guy must be breaking some kind of NDA, but that's his problem!!!

    yeah, watched a few full grid replays....damn, that looks really awesome with those glare-effects on the cars and headlights :cool:

    btw, i never saw any footage or infos about rain or pitstops. i saw some setup-screens with wet-tyres and the trailer also shows some pitstop-animations :confused:

    he said somewhere that you are allowed to broadcast through the ps4-share app (which unfortunately has a medicore quality even on a ps4pro and is restricted to 1080@30fps).

    It looks really impressive graphically, will probably be a good pick up and play type of game with a few beers ;)

    Most natural looking racing game to date. PCars2 while also good looking has cartoonish/overdone colors in comparison. This looks true to life in everyway. I might buy a ps4pro. Gt4 prologue made me buy the Ps3 as well so i guess the trend continues.

    Sound slightly improved but still seems to be quite horrible. Nevertheless, very excited about GT especially because of the new online features, signed. :rolleyes:

    gt sport is graphicwise very appealing, the daylight actually looks like real daylight unlike pcars where it looked kinda washed out with overdone colors.The overall-look (vibrance,colors,lightning) combined with great visual effects is simply spot on. But well, it's just the graphics up to now. The rest still needs to be 'reviewed' closer for sure.

    GT6 drives like a sim, despite the elitism on PC crowd denying it. It's a great game if you are willing to change the tires to hard.

    Don't know about GT Sport, but it looks quite sleek and smooth physics wise. Hard to judge by a video tho.
