Bathurst Circuit - Forza 5 vs Gran Turismo 6

GearNuke: We recently got to see Bathurst Circuit for Gran Turismo 6. It looked spectacular for sure. Curiously, we saw the same circuit in Forza Motorsport 5, which is a upcoming next generation Racing Sim. We decided to compare both versions and see what upgrade a next generation game has got over current generation game. (Forza Motorsport 5, Gran Turismo 6, PS3, Xbox One)

Being from the states I hate NASCAR, but I love Aussie V8 racing. I can't wait to give this track a go in GT6.

GT6 still has the most accurate lighting! GT6 Tracks in the pictures looks more natural and realistic than Forza's track. FM5 track has a yellowish tint makes it look very unrealistic.

Its impressive to see a game like GT6 with complex physics running on a 8 years old hardware still looking as good or even better (at lighting) than a next gen game.

Btw people should stop comparing these 2 games cause they are different.
Forza 5 is a casual arcade racing game and GT6 is a proper driving simulator with realistic tire physics.

I dunno, the yellowish tint is something that happens a lot in real life depending on season and the position of sun/cloud cover. Things arent colour calibrated to RGB white in reality. The forza shots are definitely more atmospheric as a result.

They both look great though, especially given the old hardware.
dumahim  +   855d ago
Yeah, looks like another Forza track where they have the sun low in the sky so we have to deal with the annoying glare of the sun yet again and never actually able to see the track due to the glare.

I agree that the games are two entirely different games, but I still think gran Turismo 5's gameplay graphics were just awful. I'm not sure why they look so bad in gameplay but not in screenshots. Maybe it's just my tv or something

Spoken like a true FB!

Forza is a simulator, more than an arcade racer! It's good you gain all of your wisdom (about forza 5) from a youtube vid!

Your stupid, both FM5 and GT series are "arcade" racers. fun is the goal with both of them... Iracing represents a more realistic driving sim. GT has a old and very poor tire simulation as well, not sure where you got your info
WarThunder  +   855d ago
Then you never played Granturismo.
Tony-Red-Grave  +   854d ago
The word out of the Eb expo is that they updated, not just the physics, the tire physics. So cars react differently to bumps on the road. In fact as a user on GTP noted "the physics are very comparable to iRacing".

The trees in Forza 5 doesn't look very "next-gen" to me. Might be better in the final version though.

So the ps3 gt6 looks better than the next gen forza 5, i am impressed with what they can squeeze out of the ps3.

When your next gen games keep getting compared to your competitions current gen games something is wrong. How many time do we hear this PS4 game vs this 360 game? You don't.

"When your next gen games keep getting compared to your competitions current gen games"

Your intelligent comments never seem to amaze!!! The article is just comparing that Mount Panorama "Bathurst" is finally in the 2 biggest racing games coming out!

One console (PS) gamers (such as you) should be more worried that 2 months prior to launch, knack is still the only game being shown on PS4 hardware! as someone who is getting both, this is a bit concerning!

If you read others comments around this article, NeoGaf, YouTube, and other sites, Yes, yes they are getting compared. Also wasn't it the DR3 developers that just said our fidelity is just as good as Uncharted a PS3 game? Yes people and developers are saying things in comparison like this. Also if you read previous statements I have been saying positive things about Forza. In fact it's one of two games I probably would get, the other crimson dragon. But day one year one Xbox One? No thank you. It'll take about 3 more 360's for them to show me they are headed in the right direction. And having just one Ikaruga caliber game is not going to make me buy another MS incomplete system.

PS I own every system since Atari 2600 but a Wii U and will own one before years end. Again I love video games, but MS has had negative effect ever since they came in the console business. I don't want to continue supporting that like its ok. But if you do that's fine, to each his own.
slampunk  +   854d ago

You've been gaming for as long as i have (since 2600).

Whilst i understand it's cool to hate on XB1 due to DRM etc......which i'm glad they've changed......isn't it hypocritical for you to on one hand say:

"but MS has had negative effect ever since they came in the console business"

and yet then you say you're buying an XB1 on the other......???!!!

MS coming into the console business has been awesome....I didn't game on the original XB, but had some great times on my 360 this gen.....They have really pushed Sony which only benefits us, the consumers......why would anyone want a console monopoly?

It's like saying you're vegetarian, but eat meat on the weekend?!

GT6 looks better to me with real time lighting and shadowing !
Kayant  +   855d ago
Also look at this --->

The lighting and shadows are actually better in FM4 than FM5 IMO.

Forza 5 has slightly better foliage, and that seems to be about it. It's crazy how awesome GT6 looks. Can you imagine GT7 on PS4? There won't be a Forza in years that'll even come close.
chrissx  +   855d ago
Honestly GT6 looks better than forza 5 to me. Which shouldn't be so since 1 is current gen and the other is next gen
wiz7191  +   855d ago
But it's a launch title, launch titles always look kinda bad. Look at PS3 launch games compared to now
FITgamer  +   855d ago
That's no excuse, it should still look better if they are calling it next-gen.
wiz7191  +   854d ago
And what happened at the beginning of this gen , the games look horrible compared to today. I don't see how people can bash a launch title
Dude Dutch  +   855d ago
Why are we comparing an old gen game to next gen? Or is something not really next gen here?
WarThunder  +   855d ago
GT6 tracks and lighting looks better. Taking in consideration that GT6 is on a 7 years old hardware with a 256mb cpu.
Imagine how GT7 will look on the PS4...
solidworm  +   855d ago
Cant believe they arnt making this for the ps4
slampunk  +   855d ago
They will in a year or two.....making everyone buy it twice!

SlapHappyJesus  +   855d ago
Forza is just one of those series that cements that, at some point, I will have an Xbox One at some point.
Doubt it will be all that soon though. True for any of the new consoles, really. I need a large, strong line-up of exclusives across the board before I commit at this point.
360ICE  +   855d ago
Forza looks more detailed for sure, but what I don't get is how people can say that Forza 5 looks vastly superior to Drive Club. Look at those Forza 5 images. Then look at some images from Drive Club. I'd say one is superior all right, but it isn't Forza.
Lboogieskells  +   855d ago
Again with the comparisons of Forza 5 and GT6...

-_- This makes no sense, both games are on diffrent Gens. Where are the comparisons between NFS, DC, and Forza?
Nocando  +   855d ago
It makes sense to fanboys that want you to believe that Sony is so awesome that their 8 year old hardware still beats Microsoft's next gen hardware. This has nothing to do with either game, and everything with hardware, which is all they truly care about.
Hicken  +   855d ago
That's exactly why. Because a current gen offering is comparable to a next gen offering, and it probably shouldn't be as close as it is.
RevXM  +   855d ago
Really kudos to PD!
More natural/real looking. Better lighting of these two.
Cars are on par with Forza 5 and and physics model obviously outshines Forza.

That being said I find Forza to be the more full/Dense looking visually. and especially Foliage reminds me its a running on an XB1.

GT6 may just be the best reason to hold of buying a next gen console. I just dont like the Update DLC Idea. from what I gather it seems they are releasing the game before it is finnished. Put up with enough giant updates to my HDD with GT5. Anyone knows? Would like to be all clear about that issue.
If it is the case I imagine maybe for people like me it is best to wait for a GOTY edition of GT6 hopefully with most of the big updates included with the game (on disc).

Cant let one game get all that HDD space when there is so many games on PS+.
Si-Fly  +   855d ago
The only thing for certain is that in terms of accuracy neither will compare to iRacing's soon to be released 'laser scanned' version.

lol can't believe people think GT6 looks better hahaha, wait till gameplay which without a doubt forza 5 will look better.
horndog  +   855d ago
Whats the point of this?? To make gt6 look bad? Because its obvious. Gt6 is last gen.
RevXM  +   854d ago
Obvious yes, Forza better looking yes?
More realistic looking? no.

GT6 will have moments of photorelism you cant get in Forza simply because of its Lighning and stylised effects. Forza is to Pixar looking with heavily atmospheric/cinematic post processing effects. TINT, FLARES, BLOOM AND GODDDDD RAYS!!!

And GT6 isnt to far off looking. yeah sure some lower resultions here and there and lesser polymodels in the environment, flat trees in the distance, but I think it holds up strong against any next gen racer.
flunkers  +   855d ago
These are just arty screen shots . need running footage to make real comparison. Having said that they have excelled in getting the game looking that good on the ps3. Having played both the forza and gt series however, the gt handling was poor in my eyes and collision physics were awful.

Best Selling in U.S.A FM5 V.S Best Selling In Europe GT6.... This Gen should be fun!!! love both btw
GinkgoID  +   855d ago
One little point. As an Australian I can say that the gum trees look more realistic in GT6. Forza has made an attempt, but from these screenshots at least, they don't look quite right, perhaps they look better in the actual game.

Still both games look great and more than anything I am glad that Bathurst is finally getting the love it so much deserves.

same graphics
sigfredod  +   854d ago
GT alwas deliver even on current gen hardware, the course looks even bbetter than on the "next gen" racer
