As if ever...
guitarded77  +   720d ago
I couldn't tell any difference besides the natural sunlight and reflections... and that was due to more cloud cover/later time of day in GT6. What am I missing that is a "downgrade"?
Godmars290  +   720d ago
The car's shadow. Its not as fully detailed as in GT5.

Wanna say its not a big thing, but its not.

Fun thing is while it cannot avoid not being compared to Forza 5 where it will likely lose in terms of graphics, in every other regard, content and environmental conditions, the 8th gen title wont be able to hols a candle to one from the 7th.

So when someone finds an obvious thing like it doesn't compare to GT5, when GT5 had its own issues, they're going to point it out. Use that to attack GT6 instead of Forza 5.

Practically everything else other than the shadows and a few reflections here and there have been upgraded. lol

Like the sky, the track, and everything from details of the car, increase in resolution, and physics. Not much else you could do on 8 year old hardware, and I guess sacrifices had to be made. : /

Glad it's not anything incredibly noticeable like the Forza 5 downgrade though. lol

ShinMaster  +   720d ago
There are more upgrades than downgrades.

The physics are better than GT5's.
Higher resolution.
The lighting is better.
There are more dynamic day/night transitions.
Motion blur (although some people are complaining that it blurs the shadows while in motion).

Also, this article refers to a Digital Foundry analysis from a demo in July.

Does this change the fact that it's still the best looking racing game in current gen consoles? Nope.

I see better shadows in GT5 and better motion blur in GT6. That's about it. I really don't think this is anything to write home about.

@ Army_of_Darkness - You can point that criticism to most racing games and nearly all sports titles out in the market. I'm not saying it's not a valid observation, but these games usually build upon the previous iteration, so it's only natural to find some shared content. You can take the exact same Honda NSX for a few laps in the High Speed Ring in all GT games from 1 through 6, but only the latest one allows you to take the Pagani Huayra for a race in Bathhurst.
Knushwood Butt  +   720d ago
That just looks like a different lighting (and therefore shadow) engine.

There's nothing special about the shadow in the GT5 video that they would have to cut back on; It's not exactly complex.
Aery  +   720d ago
Don't waste your time over this useless comparison. It's a pure click-bait.
Ju  +   720d ago
GT5 has cookie cutter shadow maps and reflections aren't natural (simple tacked on "mirrors") plus it has missing motion blur.

So adding all that with a dynamic lighting engine which gives you realistic reflections, soft shadows, real time weather and motion blur (which is huge for an 8 years old console) is now called a downgrade. We should just stop making video games. Looks like nobody cares.
Dee_91  +   720d ago

Now I remember why I barely visit this site any more.
Okay just read the article and holy f%^ing s#1t if thats not some bull s#1t pulled out of no where.
This is not photoshop,the motion blur in replays are not a damn filter its the result of a new rendering engine.Hi def Refelctions... LMAO.The reflections in gt5 was an over kill and they reduced it.The cars still have high definition reflections in gt6, they are just less mirror like.High def shadows? are you kidding me?The shadows in GT5 was far from high def, they were a jagged mess,They are almost as chiseled in GT6 but way less jaggie.The differences are, the shadows are different on the track because the Sun has moved which caused the tree shadows to appear less "chiseled" because PD remapped the entire sky on every track.The shadows appear less chiseled on the car because of the new engine, if you stop, you will see the shadows are nearly as sharp as gt5 but less jaggied.None of this is a downgrade.Learn a little more about graphics and the game before make more dumb claims.The only thing that got downgraded was the AA, which was a given considering the boost in resolution.
Its funny with these so called downgrades, the game looks better than a majority of racing games.

I already got the game and I played a few hours. The graphic look almost identical to GT5, but the driving physics is improved. GT6, when you start it first is geared toward beginners as there are a lot of tips on how to brake and accelerate. You have to earned your stars before you can unlock other events.

Motion blur and shadows are worse in gt6 than gt5....thats all i noticed.I think it was rushed while their putting most efforts in to gt7 for the late 2014 release confirmed.
wishingW3L  +   720d ago
while you're right about the shadows GT6 can't be worse at motion blur because GT5 doesn't even has motion blur to begin with.
TH3BR3W  +   720d ago
There was no motion blur in GT5 take a look again. Specifically watch the white fence rails by the bleachers. See how they look normal in GT5 and then GT6 they have a blur effect? Proof as to why GT6 had to dim the textures, lighting, and world reflection. Just so we can have a gimmick that doesn't really change the experience at all.
Abriael  +   720d ago
Article makes an entirely false point, forgetting that the resolution of the game has been largely increased from Gran Turismo 5. It considers only the elements that suit its argument, ignoring those that make it false. It's entirely misleading and fake, and hopefully a mod will take care of it.

Usual cinemablend flamebait.
Studio-YaMi  +   720d ago
It's basically a comparison to get back at fanboys for the backlash of Forza 5.

Some websites are just gullible like that.

What's funny here is,considering that GT6 has much more going for it on a LAST GEN hardware,you'd think people would understand that corners needs to be cut in order to reach the goal of a finished/polished game.

Forza 5 on the other hand runs on next gen hardware and there was lots of cutting to do before release,not to mention the half baked backgrounds/lightning & no day/night cycles.

At least the Xbox fanboys are happy.

One major AWFUL thing about GT right now are the Micro-transaction,but that's business for you.

The amount of reused textures and filters in the game is mind-boggling. The resolution is 1440×1080 vs 1280x1080 hardly a huge upscale difference, being that fanboys were saying this game looked better than FM5, I expected alot more. It definitely looks like the same game with very slight differences and the shadows are clearly better on GT5.

GT6 has soft shadows, reflection is a result of much better (dynamic) lighting engine and the the "side lines" are now motion blurred.

None of those effects are in GT5 and yet lets make an article and call it "downgrade". That's gonne generate hits. LOL

False. Ridge Racer 7 was full 1920x1080, and I'm sure if I dig deep enough, I can find another.
neoMAXMLC  +   720d ago
Uhh no. Maybe not many "retail" games played at 1080p native but there are PLENTY of downloadable games that run at 1080p on the PS3. Also, GT5/6 aren't upscaled 720p. GT5 runs at 1280x1080 and the GT6 Academy demo was reportedly running at 1440x1080. Sure it's still not 1080p but that is a lot more pixels being pushed out.
dillhole  +   720d ago

Wipeout HD was another in full 1080p. GT5 actually did have 1080 horizontal lines, but its vertical lines were 1280 (GT6 increases this to 1440).

GT5 was 1280x1080

GT6 is 1440x1080

Still significantly higher resolutions than 720p. Then again, it's a racing game so resolution is less of an issue.
Ri0tSquad  +   720d ago
Even SSDHD was 1080p/60fps & 720p/120fps. The Walking Dead is 1080p. There's a good handful of games that are native 1080p on PS3. Some less demanding than others. To flat out say none at all is wrong. There were native 1080p games at launch.

Shinmaster, shut up you're wrong about everything. Pretty obvious coming from someone named Pokemaster.
ambientFLIER  +   712d ago
"I'll take native 1080p over a sharper shadow and brighter reflections all day everyday."

First of all, 1440x1080 is NOT native 1080P. Second, more quality per pixel makes for a better looking game than pure 1080P. Maxed out 900P > stripped down 1080.

wishingW3L  +   720d ago
I noticed it when played the GT6 Academy demo but I thought it was because the game wasn't finished. But if you compare GT5 Prologue to GT5 you'll notice another slight downgrade.

And to make things worse, GT6 no matter if you play it at 1080p or 720p now both have x2 MSAA while on the older games you could have 4x MSSAA if you played the game at 720p. This most likely is to fix the old frame-rate issues although I heard that GT6 still has frame-rate issues at 1080p. Seriously, I have no idea what is going on....
ShinMaster  +   720d ago
What is going on?

The physics are better than GT5's.
Higher resolution.
The lighting is better.
More dynamic day/night transitions.
Motion blur (although some people are complaining that it blurs the shadows while in motion).

Seems like more upgrades than downgrades. Not to mention game content hasn't been downgraded unlike some other racing game.

It hasn't been downgraded? GT6 carries over most of GT5's cars (even the PS2 ones) and tracks and only adds a few new things. That's far easier than making 200 brand new high rez cars and 14 tracks, like in Forza 5...

GT6 still sounds like crap, still has poor AI, and still has laughable damage modeling.

@ ambientFLIER

GT6 carries over most of GT5's cars because they're both PS3 games and they both have highly detailed cars. Besides, there are almost 200 brand new high-res highly detailed cars. What would be the point of remodeling the same cars?

At least it's damage doesn't consist of mostly texture swaps.

And those "PS2" cars have actually been upgraded to look better. No worse than Forza 2 cars.

Cars also drives better :)

So get out of my face.

I know exactly why the textures are muddier and the AA looks worse is they added motion blur to it. That alone is where the GPU's processing allocation is going over the AA and textures.

Honestly GT6 looks great. Physics is faultless.

Humongous amount of cars and tracks to choose.

Plus you get a "FREE" Mercedes Benz Vision GT Concept ( http://www.ebeasts.com/2013... ) as a "GIFT" from Sony/Polyphony with 3 choices of colors.

Do have to add the interior shot of the Merc has been totally blacked-out.. and other vehicles in the manufacturers' corner not having any gallery CGI shot/photo also have the same blacked-out interior treatment.

Hicken  +   719d ago
It's easy for some designers to draw up a concept of a car in a couple of hours, and for that concept to be digitized with little issue.

Creating an interior that goes with that car, however, is a very different task.

On that subject, ever notice how many concept cars are actually little more than hollow shells? A great number of them are simply exercise designs on wheels, with no drivetrain at all under the hood? Why? Because it's not needed, if you're just showing off the concept of what this potential production car- or concept that displays the potential future design elements of your brand- could look like.

Sounds an awful lot like what happened here, don't you think?

Oh, but I guess you wouldn't, seeing as you don't seem to be too well-versed in the automotive world like that.

Console is at the end of its life, look how long it took for GT5 to come out! Donkeys years and again to wait ages for GT6, some things had to give. It makes sense to put less effort into those graphics and more sense to have it running at a far smoother frame rate. The game may look less impressive (only marginally) but I bet it runs better than GT5 in terms of feel and speed/frames etc.

Both games look great in their own regard. Me personally, I enjoy a crisper picture to motion blur. M/B looks washed out and gives me a headache for some reason (i.e. Killzone 2).

On a side note, for any racing game die-hards... do yourself a favor and check out Need For Speed: Shift 1. IMO, far and away the best racing game of this last gen. Graphics, physics, customization were all top notch. It was buried under GT5's large shadow. Shift 2 missed the mark oddly.

I hate Gran Turismo and don't even know what such a dull PC-game like game is doing as a Sony flagship game.

I loved my PS3 for other types of genres but there are too many Sony fanboys on here that they are in danger of making the PS4 uncool! One of the reasons that I loved my PS3 is so much is precisely because it was 'underrated' by anyone who didn't own one.

If you keep on making excuses for Sony games and don't admit truths like that Forza - or even Codemasters Grid 2 from this generation- are more exciting looking then you're going to end up turning the Playstation brand in to a reliable but increasingly predictable console.

It's a bit like why people bought the Megadrive. Too much slow Mario dominating.

A lot of Sony fans are turning in to slow Mario in their thinking. And they'll make the PS4 popular but uncool, like an increasingly confident geek that starts to think he's a ladies man.

i"m not even sure i get your point , but i'm probably slow lol

. There were always "cooler" , and more accessible arcade racers , or sims or hybrids to play instead of Gran turismo . GT was always in a corner of its own .

Hell you are some kind of proof in itself . You hate gran turismo right ? And yet it didnt seems to affect your gaming since the ps1 , despite it being one of the playstation flagships ever since it appeared .

If you find it got it too easy ... then you and other guys need to motivate other publishers into making a proper concurrent and rival . Not just games that occasional veer in its direction , then runs away from it , even if still great games .

The closest yet on console is Forza , wich admitelly got another focus , while a sim too .

forrza looks nice graphically but exciting no sorry i played burnout ive had my fill of bright and shiney games these days exciting to me is 12 hour session on eigier trying to trim that last corner a little bit more to get gold, a game where the exileration in self challenge and real challenge makes you tremble with nerves thats excitment
