RealSG: "Part of the 'Course Maker' mode in Gran Turismo 6 involves a GPS mobile app that lets you, the player, drive a course in real life and upload said course to the game itself. Yes, you read that correctly."
wooooow thats Crazy! i will be making a Lot of my own tracks then, i like a lot of sharp turns and hairpins, long and complex. PlayStation, Gran Turismo, the two most beautiful words in the industry.
I've been wanting this for the longest in GT5. I have the perfect road in my hometown full of twist, turns, and straight aways.
just imagine ripping around your local highway clover, then gunning it down the highway turning down a side street and recreating the finish through a bottleneck alleyway. the only thing that will top that is getting to play someone elses who's more talented, uploaded race track. : D
LMAO, speeding tickets are going to go on the rise for the next couple of months. LMAO.
lol yeah i was gonna say, *track ends* ..."wth man?" oh thats where i got pulled over... rofl.
lol. I don't think you have to drive the actual road to get the data, but no doubt people will try. Great feature. Where I live is full of straight main roads and lots of curvy side roads that all interconnect. Will have to draw out a course on a real map.:)
oops, meant to say you don't have to drive like you're racing on the road. Obviously you will have to drive the road to get GPS data.:)
This racer is more next gen then any game I have seen on actual next gen consoles This is the best thing ever I'm literally blown away by this feature. Especially cause I take my motorcycle racing at my local track. Polyphony you have out done yourself.
i know rite. next gen continues on the ps3. Future Proof! : D
Kudos to the first person who ties a GPS to a cat and uploads that track!
Sounds more like try to boil water and start fire kind of experience.
LMAO! That was great! The only thing that could've topped it is if you would've said, "UNLEASH THE DOGS!!!"
A cat? Try a squirrel. You would get all the respect in the world for completing that track.
Next gen on current gen: GT6
Amazing. Country lane time I think. Some great corners in and around the villages of England.
jealous, thats why WRC is most popular in the UK and other countrys. but i suppose i can turn my neighborhood into a drift course XD. if i can get get some snow in the editor, i can emulate how i drive in the winter time around here. gonna be so cool.
There was a road me and my friends used to call the Rally Road. It runs from Bradwell to Coggeshall (or vice versa) in Essex. It featured 4 tight blind hairpins in a row and nice winding single track stretches of tarmac with only fields to crash into and a couple of tasty long straights. You could really boot it about. I'd do that. In fact there are many great roads in England alone that would make great rally stages.
thats pretty crazy, i love some gravel/dirt to tarmac combinations, especially the tracks that would 90 degree turns around a corn field on tarmac then into a curvy gravel stretch. really puts the car and driver to the test, no question.
love that episode of top gear.

I hate that Sony is doing this to me. I really wanted to jump into next gen with both feet running and not look back. This game is going to make me give some serious attention to my PS3 well into next year. Love me some GT!
I wonder what the limitations are? Ie how much of road can you download?
SUCH a cool idea! Love this. This is mobile integration done right.
That's what you can call a real driving simulator.
i've always wanted to race a mclaren in a target parking lot. hope your day to day drives are more interesting than mine...
Next gen features in a current gen game. Gran Turismo FTW
Now THAT is creative. You are the controller? Nah, my whole car is.
You got to be kidding me. Holy cow.
Was there not a rumour a while back that suggested something like this for Driveclub. I'm wondering if they would implement it there as well considering the nature of the game being driving on the best roads in the world.
Waw that's great !!! Keep it up
I can't wait for this. Will be the last game i purchase for PS3. It will glorious.
Can somebody go to pikes peak so we can have pikes peak on GT6 :-) MY DREAM TRACK I love the challenge to make it to the top or down as fast as possible
I can drive threw San Francisco and along the the SF coast line for you guys and upload the track, beautiful city might I add.
This news made me feel a whole lot better about not pre ordering PS4.
It would be cool if they used Google street view to populate the background. I mean a track is great but sometimes its the surroundings that really make it.
It would look like crap though to be fair. No engineer is that good.shame though it would be awesome with a capital fuck yeah
Road traffic is about to go up as there are going to be tons of people randomly driving around their neighbourhood 'creating' tracks for GT6.
This is cool feature for a racong game. Hopfully they can make ot work well and its not broken.
Now THIS is a driving sim feature.
Cool. I want me one of those GPS devices.
This is sweet sauce on already delicious cake :D Cant wait for GT6!
Wow! First GT5 makes night/day & weather a standard people expect. Now we're getting the ability to use GPS telemetry. They've gone and done it! We can make our own tracks now for real. Anyone live in Seattle? Gateway MT6706 2008
