I can tell you that this game is so different...

physics really show true superiority over all other driving simulators...

pity.. Im having problems with the demo.. ps3 is shutting off while I am in the menus... and if I skip them fast I get to play for 1 - 2 hours..

hope it will be fixed.. all other games work perfect (except COD BO2, it had same issue)

my old 60 gig granny is getting old...
Soldierone  +   880d ago

If its your 60GB thats doing it, then the chip needs to be re-attached to the board. Videos on Youtube show how to do it. You just need some thermal and whatever.

It's basically over heating and causing it to freeze. My old 60B started doing that last year, sold it and just got a slim. I Never played PS2 games anymore so I didn't really mind at all. Plus those 60GB still sell for a crap ton of money.

its amazing how long it took for GT5 to come out and now how quickly GT6 is coming out and looks to improve on every single aspect of Gt5

Now PD is a lot more familiar with PS3's tech, at this rate i expect a new Gt game on ps4 in fall 2015, since PS4's development is much much easier.

i recently saw a video for GT6 and it looked stunning, lie almost a next gen title, huge improvement over Gt5

i won't bother with demo since i know for sure its a day one buy

Blade Runner  +   880d ago
That is one of the dumbest comments. Crap forza...The Forza and GT series is one of the best race sims games on consoles. Either you have never played forza or you are a troll. Prob both.
IRetrouk  +   880d ago
Have to agree with blade here red, both games are fantastic with both offering something a little that the other does not.
I do still think gt is more of a harcore sim than forza but thats just me, gt also offers more of a challange on track and a finer eye to detail while i think forza offers the best entry into a sim style racing game, it also has great customisation. I have played both series from their first right up to the very latest versions, while i do prefer gt i can understand why some would prefer forza.

Im playing it now. Are though GT6 was meant to be groundbreaking graphically.

It looks worse than Forza Horizon.


Actually i take that back.

The Nissan opening Section of the demo looks awful. But I have just won the Leaf looked brilliant

dont be a troll gt and especially 6 is always better thn crap forza. forza sucks and is only praised by the fanboys of the xbox because they ave no games they are just playing multiplat games while we are playing gt6, pupeteer, the last of us, god of war ascension and soon beyond 2 souls, etc playstation is what everyone needs.
finbars75  +   880d ago
Looks worst then forza?You my friend are out of your dam mind.The game looks stunning in every way.Forza reminds me of shiny bubblegum cars driving around with no realistic look or feel to it.GT6 looks and plays smoother then butter and im sure everybody will agree once they play the demo.
omi25p  +   880d ago
Looks stunning? No it doesn't.

The grass has no textures, the road surfaces are as smooth as glass. The trees are low res. Inside the cars looks terrible..

It is not an "Amazing looking game"

Dont even bother trying to claim i haven't played it. Or that im a fanboy.

Im literally playing it as i write this.

The second you touch the brakes you immediately skid. Its either full on the brake or not on the brakes. Its terrible.

The cars are like bumper cars, They have no impact when they it into each other.
xPhearR3dx  +   880d ago
Gotta agree with omi25p on this one. The graphics are not stunning at all. This has to be a low res demo. GT5 looks way better than this demo. One thing that does drive me nuts about GT (Even in GT5) the cars do feel like bumper cars. I've smacked into the side of a car and it makes a bumper car noise and practically nothing happens. They got the handling right, but they need to work on the collisions.
IRetrouk  +   880d ago
Omi, im just gonna say it... pressure sensitive buttons, also play it with a half decent wheel, its how you are supposed to play gt, if you have to use your pad change the gas and break buttons to r2 and l2.

the demo is really nice, a handful of tracks, few events to get some practice on. And then the actual academy event. Hell you can even buy cars etc. The game does handle and look a lot better. Its what GT5 should of been in a way.
oof46  +   881d ago
Have they improved the AI?
Fluke_Skywalker  +   880d ago
karl  +   880d ago
the AI felt very dumb as always but this is an online event and those were there just to practice a lil bit...

lets hope its different in the final version

anyway... the physics are way better

and the general feel of the car has changed...

the movement of the car now makes it feel like u actually are loosing control.. its really exciting to drive compared to gt5...

and i love GT5
CRAIG667  +   881d ago
99% of people on N4G wont admit it(or don't have the intelligence to recognize it) but GT5 had many areas that should have been improved before release, one thing that always bugs me is the sound design, if you scrape a wall or another car the sound is hideous, very very unrealistic. Another thing that bugged me was the default button for acceleration being X and not the trigger,I mean come on! Forza 4 was better in many ways, both games are so much fun though.
Denethor_II  +   881d ago
Really complaining about the X button being default, come on. If you're not using a wheel than you are seriously missing out.
Yes the sound effects could be better, but this is a driving sim, and the physics are what matters first. Hopefully they iron out some of the more immersive aspects of the game.
Knushwood Butt  +   881d ago
lol wut?

Sure, some collision sounds are lacking, but if that's your biggest complaint...

Personally, I'd like them to fix the annoying system whereby whenever you get into trouble your car either does a 180 and faces the opposite direction to the way you want to go (and nothing you do can prevent it), or the front of your car ends up practically stuck to a barrier like it's magnetically charged or something.
Dir_en_grey  +   880d ago
You know PS2 and PS3 buttons are analog right?
ie it's pressure sensitive like a gas peddle...

360 buttons doesn't have this feature so it has to be on the trigger.
CRAIG667  +   880d ago
@Dir_en_grey wow,serious? I honestly never knew, I will try the default setting to see how it feels? I am taking you're comment with a pinch of salt as I find it hard to believe I missed this!?
karl  +   880d ago
they are.. its true. but the x button? seriously?

if im not behind a wheel .. i use the analog stick to brake and accelerate ...

its way better than the triggers or buttons..

who drives like that? seriously
CrimsonSquall  +   880d ago
PS3 has analog buttons but with PS4, because barely anyone used them and u can get slightly slower latency then digital, they are now digital on the PS4. Just a random fact that will prolly go unnoticed

N7Lukas  +   881d ago
Downloaded it, tried it, hoped it wouldn't be as boring as GT5, but it was. I should probably just accept that i dont like sims lol. You can bash Forza all you want, but at least those games are FUN. Are sims supposed to be fun? Maybe im playing them for the wrong reasons.

Fishy Fingers  +   881d ago
Of course sims are meant to be fun, but only if your idea of enjoyment is to recreate the experience of driving an actual car. I've never really noticed a huge difference between Forza and GT. Forza perhaps slightly more arcady.

Maybe Mario Cart is more up your street.
Koyes  +   881d ago
NFS is more your game
N7Lukas  +   881d ago
So what if it was? Or Forza, or any other racer. If its fun then play it. I just dont understand how people find GT fun, but as the other guy said its fun for people who want the sense of driving an actual car.

I love how GT fans act all high and mighty "maybe you should stick to..." or "maybe so and so is more your game" haha whatever, carry on playing your boring sluggish vacuum car sounds game. And what is up with that btw?? The sounds seem not to have changed since the ps1 days, dont they use real recordings? If not, thats not very life like is it? hahaha.

I didn't mean it in a negative way. Clearly you do not find Simulators fun, so I believe NFS is more up your alley, because I believe you may enjoy it. I agree with you that games should be fun and I find Simulators a lot of fun, whereas you find the arcadey variety more fun.
Baka-akaB  +   880d ago
Seriously i dont get why you exploded . You said you tried and dont like simulation , he's hinting at trying arcade games instead that's all .

"I love how GT fans act all high and mighty"

I hear that crap all the time , and yet look at your post , and look way above as someone basically calls "idiots" people disagreeing with his view .

Most i knew and still know stay in their corner enjoying their stuff knowing it's not the cure for medecine and everyone . ANd maybe some are also tired of the constant attacks .

i've never heard a GT dev bullsh*t on Forza or other games , the opposite wasnt true .
And i've never seen rival titles being scrutinized and nitpicked to the same extent .

Anyway , peace , enjoy your stuff . Arcade and sim might not mix well , but nothign prevents enjoying only one or both .

Kujii  +   880d ago

I agree with misterzadir. Try Forza Horizon

Or if you want to enjoy GT6 try this:

Inside car view with no assits, no hud, no track line. Youll spend more time trying to master a Nissan Leaf than you will finishing an entire NFS game.

Its hard at first but it feels much more rewarding.

I was in Game yesterday to pre-order GT6 & GTA 5, one of the guys behind the till then asked which version of GT6 i wanted? PS3 or PS4?
Confused by this, i reminded him that the PS4 version is rumored to be coming out late next year some time, he replied
"No. Head Quarters have given us codes for the PS4 version, were told Jan or Feb of next year.

Anyway i have ordered the PS3 version, as i am not sure about Q1 2014 for GT6.
CRAIG667  +   881d ago

What improvement could they have for the PS4, a higher resolution? If it were to actually take advantage of the PS4 hardware, add separate features and what not, it would spilt the community in two. I personally do no see it coming to PS4.
dontbhatin  +   880d ago
well splitting the community in two isn't gonna be that big of a deal when gran-turismo sells over 10 million on average. so then that would be 5 mil per system?

and why couldnt they just have it cross-platform? they do this for quite a few games. better graphics and frame rate shouldnt make any difference on how it plays online.
r21  +   880d ago
Well thats interesting. Nice find dude.
AcceptedWalnut  +   881d ago
Runs like shit for me, its constantly juddering (try the cockpit view with wipers turned on). Thought my Tv had disabled game mode at first.

Hopefully its just this academy version that isn't fully optimised and the full game runs butter smooth cause its quite distracting.
SniperControl  +   880d ago

AcceptedWalnut  +   880d ago
Is it possible my PS3 could be making it worse? Its an old phat style and the fans were definately letting me know they still work whilst i was playing.

I gave it a clean out not that long ago too.

Playing it on my launch phatty as well. Yeah my fans are literately screaming at me after a long session, she has been doing it for about a year now, i just hope she holds out till Nov.
badz149  +   880d ago
that's not good
mine gave up after almost 3 years - bought 2007 died 2010, and before it died, the fan sounded very noticeable which is not a good sign since the PS3 SHOULD be running pretty quietly and finally it happened...Kratos killed it! I was slaying Gaia and poof...YLoD!

just...get ready for the worst. the original 60GB is prone to YLoD even if you put it at a well ventilated area.
Mikeyy  +   880d ago
Haha, yeah about 2 years ago, GT5 Claimed my Phatty 60GB. I had just finished a 4 hour race and bam, just turned off, tried to turn it back on, and YLOD.

INORITE? You can drift more in Ridge Racer, go faster in WipEout and jump longer in Burnout Paradise. You don't even get chased by cops in GT6!

And, dare I say it, EVEN Grid 2, the most horrible of all racers plays better. EVEN Grid 2, the worst of the worst.

No, you're not the only one. But then again, not being the only one was never really a quality assurance.

I think it's great.

I've been lucky and got none of the stuttering other people were getting which left me with a game that has a bit of an edge to it. The sensation of speed, even in the bumper cam view made Silverstone terrifying, a good sign.

Loads insanely fast too.
Kujii  +   880d ago
Played the demo and the first thing that jumped out at me was the new suspension and tyre physics. They are both great and I think GT fans will love it.

In car shadows are not jaggy any more and smoke doesnt make the cars look crap also.

Decent so far. I wasn't going to pick up GT6 as I thought TLOU was going to be my last current gen purchase. But this demo may have changed my mind

You can really see and feel where the efforts with aero & suspension game engine on the EV Nissan Leaf.

How the car weaves as you push further is quite amazing with improved game engine. Another small step maybe, but quite an impressive outcome.

I noticed that it has always been with the small car class/poverty pack were you can tell the ride/handling details, because with the more powerful/exotic cars they are more fine tuned.

Can't wait for the full GT6 game.

Very quick 1GB demo dowload as well.

Gets a lot better after the initial tutorial lap. After that you can reconfigure the controls to R2/L2 etc and check out some nice new maps (the two cups), and check out a faster Nissan as well. Loads WAAAY faster than GT5, smooth, no tearing, looks more polished, the suspension seems better. I was drafting in no time. Looking forward to the full game.
PersonMan  +   880d ago

MoveTheGlow  +   880d ago
It's enjoyable, and for once I found myself in cockpit mode most of the time.

As for the look... Well, the cars look fine. The framerate isn't there yet. For most of the race, 60fps, but a few hiccups happened mid-race, and a ton of stuff outside the race itself is 30. I don't get it, but maybe that's because this is early. Hoping.

Drives like a GT game. I haven't played one since 4, and I felt at home with those cars. I still suck at driving, too!

SniperControl  +   880d ago
Dude, dont base your assumption of a game from the demo, 90% of the time the demo is based on old code from way back when and has not been optimised.
In my opinion it was definitely a step up from GT5, trust me, wait till Nov for the actual game.
clarkdef  +   880d ago
In my experience it's a pretty darn good indication, besides I wasn't knocking the graphics. The game will be an enhancement of gt5 but not much of one, I bet you.
Hicken  +   879d ago
He didn't say anything about the graphics.

No, the races haven't and don't really need to change their titles. Is THAT what you're basing your decision on? The names of the races?

Besides, this demo is also the trial for GT Academy. No need to add a bunch of craziness like you suggest; it's there to give players a chance to get used to the handling and physics of the game, and to have them test themselves to see if they've got what it takes to move on to a higher step.
clarkdef  +   878d ago
Maybe it's just got boring to me, been playing since the first game and it all feels the same, will it all be the same mechanical upgrades? We can continue the conversation on psn. I want this game to shine btw.

i was expecting great graphics.
the car looks awful ,the game looks like its been coloured in with MS paint.
surely they should of made an impact?
i was kinda hoping it would be a car like the cover they keep using for it.
forza definatly seems better on most fronts and im non biased
