The day is finally here as the Gran Turismo 6 demo is now available on the European PSN, with the North American version going live just now, which you can view on the web store if you’d like. - PSLS
Just a public service message. It's a 1 gb file with graphics and pretty much everything toned down (according to devs) so more people can participate in the contest. Not even a demo, its GT Academy, which is where the winner becomes a pro racer in real life.
So now demos have expiry dates? I haven't downloaded a demo in years.
Its regarding GT Academy.
You should download WiiU demos they have a limit on how often they can be launched :D
Not really a demo..
Everything besides the physics in this game is shit but I'll still end up buying it.
The sound (engine sounds, and those tire screeches) Boring AI Limited paint system Premium vs Standard cars Can't rotate the camera around the car in third person view No grid start Other than that I still enjoy the game but GT is far from being a masterpiece. On a side note, the demo(yes I know its a demo) hasn't really improved on much of this stuff. I think people here need to stop being fanboys and stop thinking GT5 is the best racing game. I've looked over hundreds of forums, comments, and even the subreddit for GT5. People are continuously begging for this stuff to be fixed.
People keep saying this is the GT6 demo when technically its not. It's just a contest. The no1 ranked driver get to join the GT acadamy. This is just like the GT 5 time trial.
Yeaaa. I felt letdown once I realized it. Well, it was actually the inability to change the tires and no free run mode that really did it.
Even though this is just the Gran Turismo 6 Academy Demo, the game is already playing great and looks spectacular! I was literally in awe when I played through the first race with the Nissan Leaf last night. Everything from the car model, environments, lighting etc. were top notch and found myself watching the replays longer then I should have :) I can't believe Polyphony Digital were able to take GT5 and make everything look and play so much better on the PS3!
I honestly wish they had kept this back for PS4, things do look and feel marginally better but for me not enough to warrant a purchase, it's just a slightly enhanced version of GT5, it doesn't feel like full blown GT6 more like GT5 directors edition...
the whole idea of this "demo" is giving players a chance to be a real racing driver... its not representing the final game... much like every gt academies before this one... graphics and mostly everything else are pretty much dumbed down..
You do realize that GT6 on the PS3 has features other car games can't grasp, or contemplate, implementing?
No. I do realize someone who is a complete fanboy however and should expect more from the GT series... READ what you just wrote FFS, I never mentioned ANY other games whatsoever... You are blind.
So you're saying that the only thing that makes GT6 on the PS3 bad is the visual side of it? Are you suggesting that? The physics, I believe, you've noticed have improved. Like aaron5829 said, this is only a demo and it seems like you DON'T know ANYthing else about what will be offered in GT6 and we've yet to see the rest of what GT6 will have as features. GT5 has features that make it unique - on game consoles, at least, so I should have clarified that. You being ignorant doesn't help what you've stated as an opinion out of ignorance (and that doesn't mean I'm calling you stupid or a "fanboy"). Now, do you really think that (from what's publicly known) GT6 will have marginally improved graphics/visuals and physics? That's narrow-minded, unless you don't know about the information given during the 15th year anniversary event AT LEAST. Call me a fanboy for not seeing the big picture nor asking me why I said what I thought. You're out of line, clearly. Oh, read my other (first) comment of this topic. You're CLEARLY only trying to save face by replying like a jerk.
