GT6 Vs FM5 Photomode Comparison

GT6 vs FM5 compared in their respective Photomode equivalents! Is a comparison even possible given that it is current Gen vs next Gen, well have a look for yourself, GT6 more than holds it's own and arguably looks better!!

The Beetle looks like a cartoon on GT6.

The fact a comparison of two racing games with one being on last generation hardware as opposed to one being on this generation hardware........well I'm sure you can fill in the rest.

Well, I wouldn't say this is too much of a case for Gran Turismo 6 vs. Forza 5. Forza 5 may be a Xbox One game, but it's a launch game so it's graphics will still be on comparable GT6. Here's how I see it.

Hardware constraints that plagued the PS3 like lighting, fog, and motion blur are visible in the GT6 screens. Especially when seen next to Forza 5 where you see shiny paint-jobs and rubber burning on asphalt. But despite all that, Gran Turismo holds a lot more detail with their cars than Forza 5 because Polyphony is able to do so.

Now for something really derail Gran Turismo for is its physics. It's been typically the same throughout the series with thumping noises and a few bumps and scratches on the paint. I'm not expecting total demolition, but something more realistic on the physics behalf to make a race seem more real than highly detailed fast-cars.

Uhhh as far as console simulators go GT is the most realistic as of now. Project cars may change that, idk. Also the physics were completely redone for GT6. The worked with a tire and suspension company to get it more realistic. I can't go back to GT5 after GT6, it feels off.

@ Axios2

You wanna talk about cartoons? Just look at the awful tail lights on the Ferrari in Forza 5 vs GT6. http://i.imgur.com/vrosigM....

GT6 has more natural lighting overall, even in-game. The only times Forza 5 looks better is in the garage/showroom.

It says a lot when a PS3 game running on hardware that's 8 years old vs a game on a brand new console is even comparable.

BONUS FUN FACT: Forza 5 uses more 2D cardboard cut-out crowds than GT4 on PS2(most of which are 3D).

pedrof93744d ago

Well we are only looking at car models, still Gt6 looks equal if not better compared to Forza.
Well and both have cardboard crowd so.

yeah...focus on the beetle and ignore everything else! TYPICAL!

what about those RX-7, BRZ and Ferraris shots which are clearly looking better on GT6?

Magicite744d ago (Edited 744d ago )

Talking about cartoons, look at FM5 crowd.
PS3 puts X1 to shame with this comparison.
GT7 will obliterate FM6, DC already does.
But this comparison also shows that racing games reached near photo-realism a while ago.

The_Infected745d ago (Edited 745d ago )

I honestly think GT6 looks as good and even better in some areas. The headlights and taillight all look better in GT6.

I can't believe how good GT6 looks compared to Forza 5 on next gen hardware. I'd hate to see GT7. That's going to look mind blowing I bet.

NatureOfLogic_744d ago

Looking at those last few pictures, GT6 cars have more detail than Forza 5 cars.

SaturdayNightBeaver744d ago

lol some people are not amused , ps3 game looks better than xb1 , imagine gt7. xb1 is very weak.

SoapShoes744d ago

GT6 uses real lighting, not prebaked. It also has 3D crowd models. Forza doesn't.

'Is a comparison even possible given that it is current Gen vs next Gen'

Guys, it's old gen vs current gen. How can something be next gen if it's already out?

whybag744d ago

Looking at the details really shows how much care Polyphony puts in their cars, I see this most blatantly in the F40 taillights. The Forza lights look like basic clear plastic discs, with an almost mirror finish, while the GT6 lights very clearly show the ridges and diffused reflections that real taillights display.

zeroskie744d ago

You can feel the love and craft in the Polyphony products. That being said, I skipped GT6 for money/time reasons. Looking forward to GT7.

oldassgamer744d ago

In many of the images, the GT6 cars have more detail than the FM5 cars, which is a little shocking given that it is a current gen/last gen comparison.
