Kazunori Yamauchi on Gran Turismo 6 Standard/Premium Cars, DLC, PlayStation 4, & More

Learn how GT6 addresses GT5's highly-criticized "standard cars". (Gran Turismo 6, PS3)

So standards are still in, just lesser in number this time. At least he's honest about it...

"Once players have played it all out and enjoyed themselves on the PS3, then the PS4 version might come out naturally around that time (laughs). Focus on enjoying the PS3 version."

Ooooh, please don't keep me waiting too long <dirty voice> <wink, wink> ;D

good interview with good info.
I really like the GT6 going social on other devices, it opens up the game to uncharted waters which is a nice improvement given that the driving and graphics are almost 1:1 with reality.

No you got it wrong, no standard cars from GT5, they remade all cars, but they created new standard for standard cars :) they will look better but will still have some limitations!!

"We won’t be making all the Standard cars from GT5 into Premium models, and we won’t make all of the GT5′s Standard cars fully “Premiumized”.

Up until now, we used to categorize them as Standard and Premium because there were functional differences between them: some of the Standard models might not have tuning parts, or couldn’t be used in Photo Mode. That will all be cleared so every model can be used in Photo Mode, and every car can have parts fitted for it.

In terms of graphics quality, the bad quality Standard models we’ve updated so they look better."

Super standard cars & mega premium cars. Can this get any better?
MikeMyers  +   418d ago
I'll just wait for the PS4 version. By that time the quirks and fixes will hopefully be patched in as well. I don't have a racing wheel for my PS3 and the PS4 controller sounds like it will be more responsive. I really enjoyed GT5 but the controller isn't that great. I might even splurge this time and wait for a proper driving wheel for the PS4.

How many cars is Drive Club going to have?
aaron5829  +   419d ago
Ahhh... cant wait!! I really dont mind standard cars at all... as i use bumper view all the time...

I really hope they improved the ai though... the only time i can have fun racing in gt5 is arcade mode... with difficulty maxed out.. the cars wont stupidly lift off the throttle in the middle of a corner when you are close to it... PD really made the AI worse overtime with gt5.
Shuyin  +   419d ago
I get your point.
There's people like me, though, that care for them. People that almost exclusively use the ego-driver perspective. And I want decent interiors and not just pitch black surroundings :( ..
I'd rather take a smaller libary with premium cars than a huge one with many standard cars. I'm a diehard GT and PlayStation fan but I gotta give kudos to Forza for that aspect.
PygmelionHunter  +   419d ago
*Well said*

I don't care much for what the cars look on the outside, I mean, even standard models are getting a little more polish this time around. But, no cockpit view? That's a real turn-off. I can only hope they come up with something better than pitch black sorroundings...
showtimefolks  +   419d ago
IMO as a long time GT fan we really don't need the gimmick of 1200 cars. Give us 500 premium cars dully detailed where we have a lot to options to mess around With customization

Anyway his is a day one buy for sure

4 games which will get my business day one

Elwenil  +   419d ago
I sort of have to agree, especially when considering that there are dozens of Skylines that vary very little and don't really have any purpose other than just collecting them. There are a lot of redundant cars that I could stand to lose in favor of a more concentrated catalog of better detailed cars. I enjoy having a large number of cars to pick from but if it's still to the point that they all can't be up to the same detail, what's the point? Just my .02
showtimefolks  +   418d ago
i agree but my 6 disagrees seem like people want 1200 cars lol
nix  +   419d ago
please... PS4 please.
Gamer-40  +   419d ago
Sad.....not all -1200- cars premium......:(
BlmThug  +   419d ago
Make the Nomad Diablo premium, please! Ugliest standard car in GT5 by a mile
Bathyj  +   419d ago
This guy, like all the best devs, wouldn't be doing any other job in the world. Rock star, astronaught, cowboy pornstar, nothing.
Chaostar  +   418d ago
Haha your comment reminded me of this...



Very true though.
Bathyj  +   418d ago
bubble cos you got it
Lazarus69  +   419d ago
I'm a little sad standards cars are going to be in it not because i don't want them in.It's because i know some reviewers will use them as an excuse to mark down GT6.
DOMination-  +   418d ago
That's because its lame. Either have one or the other. At least they are fixing the menus though.
solidboss07  +   419d ago
I never had a problem with even the roughest of GT5 car models, the game with all of its faults is still the best that any console can offer. GT5 is greater than the sum of its broken parts.
Now for GT6, if they have 60fps (Suzuka is a favourite but frame rate drop kills it), improved graphics and lighting, adaptive tesselation for call models, better weather and environmental effects, improved depth of field ect ect then GT6 is worth getting. Include a much more efficient game code and it amounts to what GT5 should have been.
Gran Turismo 5 was the birthing pains of a new era, game assets are nowready for future consoles.
Bordel_1900  +   419d ago
Good honest interview.

"GT5 was really hard to develop, because the PS3 is a really complex piece of hardware", so much for the lazy developers theory many of the fanboys are spreading.
hobohunterz  +   419d ago
It's not Sony developers that people blame for being lazy..
Bordel_1900  +   417d ago
That's not what I said either. Fanboys are always saying when the PS3 version of a multiplat game is inferior that it is because of lazy devs. It's not, it is because of this "PS3 is a really complex piece of hardware". No multi plat dev will ever invest 3,6,8, etc months extra to make a PS3 version that is on par with the x360 version, that is not laziness. It's bad design from Sony's part. But I guess blind fanboys will never admit to that.

I read car damage is about same as GT5, so its 2013 an still no car damage, an prob 60% PS2 polished cars. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm too confusing for me having most of the cars without interiors an lacking fully customisation, rather have 'only' 500+ premium cars that ill actually want to use.
RowSand  +   418d ago
u r funny one
Rhaigun  +   418d ago
Standard cars = cars I will not use
GABRIEL1030  +   418d ago
I'll buy this game, looks amazing. But I dont like the standard models, 500 premium cars are enough for a great game. However I like the Yamauchi honesty. :)
PAYNEinc85  +   418d ago
Notice he said they're focusing a little more on new driving assists? You know, the things you Gran Turismo fanboys claim makes Forza an arcade racer instead of a sim? lol suck it. I'm still buying it though. Unlike most of you I'm not too stupid to realize both consoles have great racing franchises on them.
PirateThom  +   418d ago
He said they're improving them. They're using a new physics model, doesn't make sense to keep them the same. Doesn't mean it's going to add a rewind button.
SegataSanshiro  +   418d ago
Imagine a SEGA rally game on the ps4 and the next gen xbox.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   418d ago
When will Sony learn Quantity =/= Quality?

1200 cars, again nothing but limited car manufacturers and nothing but constant dupe cars in sequential years....89',90',91 9;,92' etc of the same damn car.

Get rid of the standard car BS so that all cars are premium and then add car packs later on down the road for only the best unique cars and make them premiums if you can't make all the cars at launch premium cars.

GT5 was a colossal disappointment game wise and it just seems that Sony is forcing PD to once again release a half assed product trying to shove aside quality for unwanted quantity.

I was a hardcore GT fan ever since Forza was released back on the original Xbox and now it has become clear Sony and PD have lost sight of what made GT so great. They have now become a 2nd rate developer/game and have taken a back seat to the forza franchise where Turn 10 give hundreds of unique cars that car enthusiasts want from the best manufacturers around the world.

No doubt Porsche will STILL not be in the next GT game leaving Forza the only option for a racing sim to have Porsche.

What a shame.

Standards cars = no buy from me.
AnimeAvenger  +   418d ago
With that said, I rather have them put it out on PS4 at a later date then Drive Club. I honestly cannot see that GT5 to GT6 will be a huge jump.
WeAreLegion  +   418d ago
Just make the Top Gear test track available at the start. I don't want to have to unlock it. I NEED to test all my cars on it!
jonnyp777  +   417d ago
Please include remote play and make the track editor like Modnation Racers.
