Gran Turismo 6

Gran Turismo 6 Revealed: Trailer, Screenshots, First Details

Coming out(optimistically?) for Holiday 2013....

1200 cars, 33 tracks, 71 different layouts, new course editor, new customization features, more tuning parts....blah blah blah...

One would hope there is no more of this Premium/Standard car deal, hopefully a better particle/aliasing effect, better shadow....etc

At least its on PS3....so less $$ needs to be spent...

I wonder if the 1200 cars are a thousand Skyline and some other cars...

I'd guess at least 10% are Skyline....at least maybe all will be Premium now? I still don't get why some are and some aren't even if they are basically the same car...

If they get rid of standard cars I may even overlook the fact that there are no Porsches in the game.

Again.

I can do without Porsche if Japanese cars have less than 3-figure-variants.

But anyway I guess we are all nitpicking really, since we'll all buy the game.

I won't! GT5 is still shrinkwrapped.. Forza for me, and things like Project Cars.

Heh. It's a game that got crowdsourced by the Slightly Mad Studios guys, basically it aims to be a very realistic racer. Depending on which tier you got in on, you can influence the design and content of the game. Unfortunately they're not taking more purchases at this stage, nor can I upgrade my membership one level up to unlock multiplayer and some of the tracks/cars.

If I remember correctly (a long time since i've played GT5), Premium had a realistic Cockpit from the real car. So if there is small changes in the cockpit from one Skyline, to the other, then they can't call it Premium, unless they model that cockpit too.

But still a useless division of the cars!

It's not that Sony don't wan't Porsche in the game. It's EA Games, who owns the Video Game rights for Porsche, who won't allow Porsche into the game!
See this blog spot about Forza Motorsport:

I like Japanese cars (pretty obvious huh? ), but there are still a lot of missing Japanese cars from the game. It's the selection of cars that's the problem. Stuff like the new Civic Type R Euro hatch isn't in it, even though the newest forms of GT-R is.

A lot of classics are also under represented.

Premium cars have more polygons or details or something like that. It's not just the fact that they have an interior. If you try and take photos of the car in photo mode standard cars are not allowed. You are allowed to take photos of standard cars in replay mode but even then you're not allowed to zoom in too closely.

Oh yes, I know EA owns the rights to Porsche. But Sony really could fix that if they open their wallets wide enough.

You might as well just trade it in for credit. I don't think GT5 was all that great.

Yes, I'm very likely to buy GT6, but not as a first day purchase anymore. I'll hold off on it.

Well, everything is for sale.
But as far as I know, the offer EA are giving is "F*ck off!" offers.
Thats the reason I put the Blog link in

Now that I've been able to see it, it does look interesting indeed.

Quite possibly a future purchase.

I agree with that. I can do without a million variations but I also want to see more Colt CZRs, Accord Type Ss and more classics.
