The Gran Turismo 6 demo is now available for download.
Gran Turismo 6 demo for North America is now live: http://www.examiner.com/art...
i'm DL it from SEN because i'm at work! It should be ready when i come home!
Good to see ur using ur time at work wisely. Commenting on n4g and all.......
i'm free to use my time as i want to as long i have the job done.. i'm not one of those who pretend working when they aren't doing anything.
U should use your time the way you want. Like how im not doing anything at all. I was just joking but i guess it wasn't funny, or it didn't seem that playful. Congrats on getting your job done. And I apologize
@victory On N4G people expect to see an /s or /jks sign to show sarcasm. Too many nuts here to differentiate between the trolling and jokes lol.
I can't find it on SEN :(
@misterzadir: yea, I'm guessing this is for EU
just so you guys know, the picture that shows up on the website is defs a bullshot....game doesn't look like that at all...I was hoping for something a little more impressive, DAMN YOU E3 for messing with my standards!!!
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...
@Tvensky 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.
Just downloaded it no @!!!!!
Agreed, loving it.
@sobekflakmonkey ffs smh
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
BTW guys, this was posted on GTplanet: "The demo in no way represents the final sound, Kaz confirmed it, these sounds in the demo are place holders."
its good the different suspension model and tires is really noticable
who needs crap forza when gt6 is superior on the ps3 already. gt6 the king of racers fact!
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.
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.
@Blade and IRetro above. Finally some sensible people making rational comments. Bubble up for both :)
til I looked at the receipt four $4930, I accept that my brother actualie bringing in money parttime from their computer.. there sisters neighbour had bean doing this for only 1 year and resantly cleared the debts on their appartment and purchased a great Renault 5. I went here,......... http:www.Jam10.com
Downloading it right now. Size 1072 MB.
WOW!!! Already a massive improvement in compression, it's 1/3 the size of last year's demo (3GB). Great work, PD!
Im playing it now. Are though GT6 was meant to be groundbreaking graphically. It looks worse than Forza Horizon. Edit: Actually i take that back. The Nissan opening Section of the demo looks awful. But I have just won the Leaf looked brilliant
"It looks worse than Forza Horizon." Jesus that bad!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Gran Turismo 6” will see release for PS4 on Nov. 24." did he meant ps3
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.
Have they improved the AI?
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
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.
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.
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.
@CRAIG667 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.
@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!?
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
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
IM going to make it to GT academy!! Using my controller!!!! Yeah right... :/
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. *Prepares for middle aged car nuts to disagree*
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.
NFS is more your game
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.
@N7Lukas 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.
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 .
Don't forget midnight club
@N7lukas u made that first comment and ended it with "prepare for middle age car nuts to disagree" haha im starting to think u only did that soo u could post your next comment and seem rational.. im sorry dude.. u still look fucking nuts!
"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." Okay fair enough, that's your opinion. "*Prepares for middle aged car nuts to disagree*" ahhhhh, you're an attention seeker.
What? I said that because i know i would get people disagreeing. I don't think you understand the meaning of attention seeking.
You say that because "YOU KNOW people will be disagreeing". Your own words. This is attention seeking.
I noticed you before n7lukas you dont believe you have a ps3 at all, all your comments is negative against Sony. You cleary are a xb fanboy. It was a good try though.
I think you should try a game called forza horizon. I bet it's right up your alley.
@N7Lukas 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.
Hopefully the stuttering can be ironed out or improved in the next 5 months or so.
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.
Most interesting, odd if true, why not just come clean, GT fans are gonna buy one version or another, if they are chancing some people will pick up both versions they are taking the piss!
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.
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.
Well thats interesting. Nice find dude.
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.
Getting no problems on mine.
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.
