    now that forza is free on windows 10, will they release GT on PC??
    • Haha Haha x 4

  3. GT on PC format still think we are dreaming there . Forza's move to the PC was less of big step has they are already on what is basically a Microsoft owned Console & are just simple moving over to the another MS system on the PC format . For Sony to do the same would be a far bigger move & would mean making their PS only series work within their rivals OS , that may be a little to much for Sonys pride handle. & Sony & PD would have to step their game up a lot to bring them up to the standards PC drivers have gotten use to , but I think they understand that the whole GT Series needs a big re-vamp if they hope to remain at the front of racing games in a now very hard fought cross platform market. Still we have to see what PD has done with their first true FIA GT series based sim / or should I say Game . soon we will see at least.
  4. Can´t wait to hear the car sounds ^^

  5. Now Gran Turismo Sport has to prove itself if its a vaccum car simulator, because they are experts on that. Still a fan of the series! :inlove:
    • Haha Haha x 1
  6. the content they showed a long time ago seemed good enough, just waiting for the physics.

    Apparently, Polyphony released a preview of the car sounds.

    Jokes aside, I'm looking forward to what this one brings.

    Wonder if they will retain that ridiculous chase the rabbit formula for their offline mode. They have the sound guy from FM now, so that should at least bring some improvements to their Dyson sound engine.

  10. The Gran Turismo community is massive, the competition is fierce, and the PS4 is capable of sim-level physics and graphics. I was thinking of renewing my iRacing subscription, but now I'll wait until this reveal because I may need to buy a PS4...

    Would almost start to miss my PS4 and GT that I swapped for a pc to start real sim racing and modding with Assetto Corsa. Almost but not quite yet ;):p

    The only thing i miss from the series is the general atmosphere with the Jazzy menu music, the typical sound effects when selecting an option and collecting cars in your garage. Apart from that I can't think of anything else :)

    I guess it's all '90's nostalgia.

  13. The PS4 is almost 3 years out there and finally we get a Gran Turismo demo. Really Kaz like :D I was a huge fan from GT1 to GT6 but as I found back to the PC sims my enthusiasm for GT died. Now that I ordered an Servo Wheel the console times are over anyway. Sadly I will miss all the career mode, driving missions and license achievements in GT. They were a huge motivator for me.

    I agree. With +500,000km racing distance I must have been one of the greatest fans of the GT series on PS4 but besides the career content and licence achievements together with the garage collectables I don't miss out on much having set my heart on AC on pc. One thing that GT is more fun at is the engine and car tuning but the vacuüm cleaner sound kills the immersion.
  15. Yeah, sadly AC was the game that made me change every hardware that I have here :D I spent at least 5k on a new PC, Rig, Wheels, Simvibe, 80/20, Sparco seat etc. and now a DD drive wheel is on it´s way. With GT I was happy with my Fanatec GT2, my CSP V1 and my Ikea table and Ikea seat for over 4 years :D

  16. Nope, no need for that.

  17. You never tried the online tournaments or downloading the free DLC? IMO, for just paying the $60 up front for the game, they were giving away tonnes of stuff and new events to participate in on a very frequent basis....hands down more than any other sim developer on any platform!

    I didn't know this about the sales until I just looked (see below), GT6 had the smallest community but the most advanced online feature set.

    Expect a revolution with GT7, not an evolution.

    I never seem to bother about online racing strangely. And of course I owned all DLC packs, free and payed. Don't get me wrong, Gran Turismo entertained me for over 10 years but somehow pc sim racing and modding of course gives me that higher involvement. But I agree with you that GT7 will rock the PS race world, just hope they got the sounds right this time. Though the Bugatti Veyron fully tuned with race exhaust was highly impressive! !(GT4)
