    In a bonza day for console racing game fans, GT Sport has joined Forza 7 in the update stakes with a new build, new track and plenty of new free cars coming to the racing title.

    Build 1.29 of Gran Turismo Sport has arrived today. Continuing a rich vein of update form from development studio Polyphony Digital, the latest build release of GT Sport is again a very positive one for players of the PlayStation 4 exclusive racing franchise - adding some nice new content in the form of nine new cars and a current Formula One Grand Prix circuit to the console simulation.

    It is never gonna happen. Gran Turismo is a Sony Exclusive :)

    However, the game is kinda great and feels great. It is just an Iracing Lite for me :)

    Unfortunately that wheel doesn't work with PS4. It is for PC and XBOX.

    And it's the best looking game anywhere. Stunning photo-realism. Not sure why ACC is so convoluted. I'm going on 20 hours now still trying to make ACC look half-way decent. Yet with my $299 PS4 and 0 configuration time it makes other games look like crap.

    its hardly photo realistic lol calm down. Does look good for the hardware on my ps4 pro though i play my other proper racing sims on my PC with a gtx 1080. I just wish for single player they had qualifying because single player feels like overtake as many slower cars in front of you. ACC smashes gt sport by a mile mate and to think its just a beta with night and rain. Gt sport still a good simcade but unreal engine 4 baby

    I'm sure ACC will be great, and will likely buy it before it goes up in price with the next update, but I'd rather wait until next year when it's actually finished to properly compare it ;). In the meantime, I must say that GT Sport has really hit it's stride over the last few months. So much extra content helping to draw more players in and keep the existing ones in the game.

    Also, the inaugural FIA certified championship has been great to both watch and partake in. I actually made it as far as the Asia-Oceania regional final before getting destroyed by the aliens. The World Final is coming up next week, should be a great final act to this initial E-Sports endeavour, and hopefully the momentum will continue into next year.
