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

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

Abriael1480d ago (Edited 1480d ago )

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.

The_Infected1480d ago (Edited 1480d ago )

Yea I changed my comment up a bit since I agree with you in that one.

XB1_PS41480d ago

Not gonna lie, I thought it was next gen. GT6 looks amazing.

thereapersson1480d ago (Edited 1480d 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.

Eonjay1480d ago

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...

aCasualGamer1480d ago

They should release this on PS4

Dee_911480d ago

Man.... GT7 will be insane if gt6 is already looking next gen.

just noticed this track will have day night transition!!

PoSTedUP1480d ago

nex gen or this gen; this will be played a lot next gen.
Gran Turismo 6

Outside_ofthe_Box1480d ago

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.

Ezz20131480d 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

FamilyGuy1480d ago

Dev dedication at its finest.

GuyThatPlaysGames1480d ago (Edited 1480d ago )

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!

Dee_911479d ago (Edited 1479d ago )

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?

ShinMaster1479d ago (Edited 1479d ago )

@ OVOXO_Mike

Those Autovista car models (all 6 of them lol) ARE NOT in-game car models whatsoever.
Time to sober up:

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

haha Infected.. thats funny.. nice edit, anyways can't compare Forza 5 next gen game to GT6 current Gen..

TechMech21480d ago

Sorry, but gt5 and gt6 graphics have been, terrible. I don't know why, but there's popup's, and just, terrible.

ShinMaster1479d 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.

abusador1480d ago

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 761480d ago (Edited 1480d 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.

GuyThatPlaysGames1480d ago

You're right! "Almost as good" but not better. Forza is king.

BoriboyShoGUN1480d ago

The heart of the PS3 is still strong! Scary to imagine what these guys will manage on the PS4.

Hello, who's there? Is that you PS4? Oh it's you PS3, I could've sworn you were next gen just then.

Bravo PD, bravo.

level 3601480d ago

Graphics on par with Forza 5.

Physics will be better than Forza 5.

JackStraw1480d ago

really? come on now. look at it lol. what in forza 5 looks better? graphics-wise. be honest.

Ezz20131480d ago (Edited 1480d 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

TXIDarkAvenger1480d 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?

thereapersson1480d 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.

blakstarz1480d 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!

TechMech21480d 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.

DarkHeroZX1480d ago

I've played GT5 and it looked good. This looks amazing. Only a Forza fanboy would deny the quality of this game.

SoulSercher6201480d ago

You need glasses if you think the graphics of GT5 and GT6 are terrible.

TechMech21480d ago

I'm not a Forza fanboy, I simply hated the graphics of gt5 and the gt6 demo

Aceman181480d ago

Wasted 3 bubbles hating sad

Showcasing what the cell can actually do. PS3 always was a beast.

Jamaicangmr1480d ago

Seeing this brings me to tears to think i'm a miss out on this masterpiece because i promised my friend my PS3 and the PS4 isn't backwards compatible.

Damn you Sony damn you to hell.

Destrania1480d ago

When Gaikai fully launches you can just stream it to your PS4 :-)
