New Gran Turismo 6 Screenshots Focus on Bathurst, Show Fantastic Visuals

Gran Turismo 6 is going to be released on PS3 at the outset of the lifetime of the PS4, but despite being on a last generation console, it showcases some really great visuals, as demonstrated once more by the new screenshots released today. (Gran Turismo 6, PS3)

This game looks amazing. Those graphics look as good as Forza 5 IMO.

Not sure about better, I'd say on par but different. Cars have a different "texture" to them, and lighting has a completely different approach.

I like both, but considering that this one is last gen, it's very impressive in comparison.

Not gonna lie, I thought it was next gen. GT6 looks amazing.
thereapersson  +   280d ago
Wait, this is on PS3? Amazing what they can do with the hardware still, considering it's 7 years old but could be compared to a next-gen racing title.

Just proves consoles have more to them than people think, and Sony's way of constructing a meldable architecture proves PS4 games will be breathtaking 7 years from now.

Absolutely ridiculous for last gen. I can't even imagine what 7 will look like on PS4. GT is industry standard because of their obsession with quality. No disrespect to Forza but GT is the ultimate driving Simulation. Also, the sheer number of vehicles...
aCasualGamer  +   280d ago
They should release this on PS4
Dmarc  +   280d ago
Man.... GT7 will be insane if gt6 is already looking next gen.

just noticed this track will have day night transition!!
PoSTedUP  +   280d ago
nex gen or this gen; this will be played a lot next gen.

HOLY $H**! What sorcery is this? I wasn't planning on getting GT6 because it looked nothing more than a GT5.5 to me, but after the magic PD just pulled, I'm considering getting it now.

Imagine what PD could do next gen, damn.
Ezz2013  +   279d ago
it's amazing how a racing game from this gen on 7 years old console look as good as next gen racing games

sony 1st part dev's sure are using sorcery

I spent a majority of my time in Forza in the Autovista mode, the mode where you can get inside the vehicles and open all the doors, hoods, trunks and test drive them. GT never has done anything like that. The amount of detail Forza put into the motors and interiors was impressive!

So you spent most of your time looking at 20 cars? that doesn't bode well for the playability of the game if thats what you spent most of your time doing... Are you trying to say forza is better or are saying autovista on a couple of cars is the main thing good in forza?

@ OVOXO_Mike

Those Autovista car models (all 6 of them lol) ARE NOT in-game car models whatsoever.
Time to sober up: http://i.imgur.com/487boSb....

Gran Turismo uses the same car models for menus, photo mode, replays and gameplay.

Sorry, but gt5 and gt6 graphics have been, terrible. I don't know why, but there's popup's, and just, terrible.
ShinMaster  +   279d ago
GT5 and 6 have had more realistic lighting IMO, even with less fancy effects and better car models...
...compared to Forza's actual in-game car models.

You act as if Forza is the measure of v visuals on racers lol Drive Club lately is visually impressive and the backgrounds and lighting are better than any other.
Animal Mutha 76  +   279d ago
Well I've played forza 5 on XB1 and whilst this isnt quite up to that standard (and I would take that GT6 video of Bathurst as a promo so prob rendered better than PS3), its not far away at all.

It really is remarkable what can be squeezed out of the PS3 at this stage especially when you consider that its GPU isn't all that great. PD must be masters of getting performance out of the Cell's SPUs or magicians or both.

GT6 demo at Eurogamer Expo was the Silverstone track I think and it didn't look anywhere near as good what PD have shown for this Bathurst 'promo'.

I look forward to seeing the differences in GT6 and Forza 5's rendition of this Bathurst track purely to try and quantify what the leap from current to next gen really is.

I'm starting to think that these next gen consoles are just higher res pixel pushers without the quantum leap in quality we saw from PS2 to PS3.

Edit: One thing I would add is that the lighting system that PD uses is sublime and Turn 10 have not matched its realism yet.

Graphics on par with Forza 5.

Physics will be better than Forza 5.

Not really on par...
JackStraw  +   280d ago
really? come on now. look at it lol. what in forza 5 looks better? graphics-wise. be honest.
Ezz2013  +   279d ago
name one thing F5 is doing better in GFX or any thing?!
i can't believe this game look like that and have dynamic weather and realtime lighting and night/day shift which non of that in Forza 5

Uhh.....yes really.
AnimeAvenger  +   279d ago
GT6 stacks up well against F5 but by no means is it visually better. If they are on par, I feel sorry for you console peasants. The graphical jump isn't very big but still a gap between this gen and next gen. So to say its on par is just stupid.

Hey you Sony fanboys can enjoy your "amazing" visuals but what does that mean when you have over half the amount of cars being imported PS2 models?
thereapersson  +   280d ago
Considering this is running on PS3, I'd say it's impressive they could even reach the level of Forza 5 at all. Hopefully dynamic weather and real-time lighting amongst the physics improvements and refined engine sounds set GT:6 apart from the pack.
blakstarz  +   280d ago
Remember, Sony said the PS3 has a 10 year life span and its being proven even with the new hardware....gotta hand it to Sony....their stuff lasts!
TechMech2  +   280d ago
You sir are a fanboy. Or you've never actually played gran Turismo, because the graphics are absolutely terrible. Screenshots might look fine, but during gameplay it's just awful.
DarkHeroZX  +   280d ago
I've played GT5 and it looked good. This looks amazing. Only a Forza fanboy would deny the quality of this game.

Damn you Sony damn you to hell.

When Gaikai fully launches you can just stream it to your PS4 :-)
Metfanant  +   280d ago
one thing Polyphony always gets right is their lighting...its what sets them apart in the visuals department from Forza...

Forza 3/4 were better GAMES than GT5 was...but Polyphony sure can make a beautiful game...hopefully GT6 will deliver a little better on the gaming front...GT5 laid a lot of great groundwork...should be a great send off for my PS3

I thought Forza 4 was a step backwards in the single player portion.

Bathurst! Ok this is the best track in the world, it's basically a sick hill climb and a hill decent, this track really works a car with a massive down hill blast to the finish.
GinkgoID  +   280d ago
The Nurburgring may have something to say about the best track in the world. But Bathurst is special and would be Top 5. One of the most interesting/exciting places to see people race. Can't wait.

The native resolution is 1440x1080, a 12.5% improvement from GT5. 3D resolution is probably the same as in GT5, 1280x1470 (720 per eye, over/under, and an additional 30 lines of separation to distinguish frames).
Riderz1337  +   280d ago
How the hell do they get 1080P res? Isn't there like almost NO game on PS3/360 that have native 1080P res. I mean shit, even some next gen games are having trouble getting 1080P native res.

Also, damn those engine sounds. Whoever complains about the engine sounds in GT6 is either deaf or a troll.
tate566  +   280d ago
GT6 is the main reason I'll hang on to my PS3 literally all the way up until GT7. I still play GT5 on a weekly basis. Because Im a adult!
PoSTedUP  +   279d ago
i was playing Gran Turismo since i was 5-6 years old... the demo came out in '95-'96 on one of demo discs that come with the ps1, it was the nightime track with a blue car, i wanna say toyota supra but i dont remember... played it nonstop untill the game released, hooked ever since. nothing to do with being an adult! lol

edit: i just looked it up. it was the JamPack demo disc (haha remember thoes?) , and i was wrong it was a blue honda NSX on the nighttime track, they had other cars to choose fromm but i guess i always picked the first one hah.

If that cockpit view was gameplay and they actually have the simulated head movement, I'm going to be very happy.

Oh, and if the engine sounds are actually going to be like they are in that clip, I'll be even happier.

Well, GT6 just got my money. Bathurst is such an iconic track in Australia. I have been waiting to see what they have done and it looks amazing. They even bothered to put in the gum trees! So the scenery is authentic. A smile on my face.
blakstarz  +   280d ago
Why would any of you wanna part or sell your PS3?!? The hell with that, KEEP IT!!....I'm keeping mines, my TV setup will look pretty darn nice with my PS3 and PS4 side-by-side.
I say keep both if you can, and I have the 60GIG one with the PS2 chip in it.....HELL NO I'M NOT SELLING THAT!
Kyur4ThePain  +   280d ago
I'm actually thinking of getting a new PS3 around the time I get my PS4. I still have an old fat PS3 and I'm paranoid about something happening to it.

why sell it when you can give it to me for free!? :D

I had that 60GB too... :C
Most beautiful console ever.
Sexy lines and a lot of neat functionality and I/O. And dat tech!!!
All the Alien tech jokes. lol. only complaint I ever had was that it could have had more ram and released sooner where I live.

iam ok with the marketing sony does, its all pretty and pleasant, just like all those vids and screenshots way before gt5 release, let us remembre the vídeos of gt5 with rain, where those rains drops looked nearly perfect on the windshield just to finish like crap on the final version. i believe theres gona be some diffrences between here and the final retail version. and by the way, i have FM4 and i used to have gt5 and lightninng effects have nothing to be compared. like i said its all pretty, but.. it will feel just like a 90s racer with all that interface allready dated
