Gran Turismo 6 Update 1.03 Imminent

It is now January, and we all remember that a major update was promised for January, an update touted to bring us new community features among others? We are currently on update 1.02 so it only makes sense that update 1.03 will be the big updated that the GT6 community is expecting. (Gran Turismo 6, Gran Turismo 7, PS3)

Am really looking forward to the online community update.

One of the best features within Unreal tournament was the ability to chat and create a game from within the chat system.

unreal tournament, now that was a fps that required skill to play, unlike the noob-infested aim assisted crap such as cod ghosts that we see today. cod noobs would literally get owned in UT and quake 3.

on topic - being able to make our own clubs and leagues in gt6 would be awesome. hoping for an update to fix the horrible sound.

A Game like GT6 has to have a robust online feature set. GT5 was pretty good all things considering the social aspect was really missing. And for GT Arena, the community features will play a large role, and will really tie in neatly to what we do.

This could probably pull me away from my PS4.

Probably... lol

I already clocked in almost 30 hours of gameplay in GT6 in about a week, can't wait for more updates. In January there will be two big patches has said Yamauchi, so the more the better :)

Did they promise this?

I hope it's coming.

they did. http://www.gran-turismo.com...

3D Compatibility
Compatibility with 3D TV’s will be added in a future update.

It frustrates me to no end that this is not out of the box. I have my wheel setup in my computer room in front of a Playstation monitor i played gt5 in 3d only

Thanks for the link.

I really need to play more GT5 in 3D.

Really? 3D?
Would we not rather see an improved frame rate? Don't get me wrong, I think GT6 is visually amazing. And any drops in performance are somehow more acceptable compared to GT5 (and they didn't bother me then either).
But if there is any juice left to be squeezed then it should be used to reinforce the splendid Full HD, not for 3D.

There is a reason why GT6 is so far missing grid starts in career mode.

I want it all. But like I said I have a setup with wheel and 3d monitor , I really liked the 3d in gt5 and it was a big disappointment that it was not out of the box on gt6.

I don't understand they somehow removed that, I mean gt6 is an extension of gt5 base on the same engine, why in the hell was it ever taken out !?

I'm hoping it's the car engine sounds upgrade. I'd love to actually have cars that sound like cars.
Hicken  +   425d ago
The sounds are good so long as you're outside the car.
metalgod88  +   425d ago
Come on man. If you're not driving a car from the cockpit, you're not really driving at all. The sounds are terrible even outside the car. They're improved from GT5 slightly, but they are still pretty horrible.

If you want real car sounds, check out iRacing, or Game Stock Car 2013.
Hicken  +   425d ago
I agree with driving from the cockpit being the best way to drive. However, you wouldn't hear the engine nearly as well from inside the car, anyway; with firewalls and insulation and the like being a factor in most of these cars- being that they're normal street cars- what you actually heard inside the cockpit would be far less interesting.

As for what you hear outside the cockpit, it may not be perfect, but it's also not horrible. Probably the best representation is what you hear in chase view, as that's getting a good note from the exhaust, as you'd hear outside the cars in real life.

I can't speak for all 1200 cars because I haven't heard them all in real life, but I do know the sounds are far more authentic outside the car than within.
metalgod88  +   424d ago
You're completely right Hicken. The engine sounds are normally muffled when inside the car. Outside the car, after playing the game just now, the sounds aren't that bad, but they have a strange hum to them and they aren't as clear as they should be.

I think my response was a little too harsh and I apologize for that.

There's an annoying bug with some cars in cockpit view where you can't hear the engine sounds for the first few seconds or so of the race.

It's really off-putting. Hope they fix it.
metalgod88  +   425d ago
Why would anyone dislike your comment? ... It's an actual issue I've had numerous times.
Knushwood Butt  +   424d ago
Dude, I have no idea.

I'm one of the biggest Gran Turismo fans out there, but a bug is a bug, and this particular one is really annoying. It throws my concentration right off.

Anyway, I hope they address it soon, as I'm loving this game.
Knushwood Butt  +   425d ago
Come to think of it, this article isn't even news.

It's assumes that there's a new update coming soon. Is that news??
itisallaboutps  +   425d ago
If they can fix the sounds, i will go out and buy it that same day, and put my tr500 to work
