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).
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?
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.
'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?
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.
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.
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.
gt6 holds up phenomenally in the car dept, I feel gt7 will annihilate fm5 in vehicle visuals
Also FM6 as well as FH2. GT7 will look better than real life.
GT looks very good here. I'd argue that in many of these images, it actually looks better than Forza. I'm a huge fan of the F40, and I love to see it done right. I remember losing a bubble for complaining about the color being off in Forza 4. Well, will I catch flak for noting how much better the whole rear end looks in GT here?
Some pictures you can clearly see that Forza was nicer, but I was surprised to see GT6 look so good especially the LFA. The BRZ and most Ferrari's look nicer on GT6..
the LFA & the BRZ are the most photogenic cars ever. Its almost impossible to take a bad photo of those cars. I've always been really impressed with the level of detail in the head/tail lights in GT5 & 6 as well
Level of detail and atmospherics looks a lot better on GT6 overall.
Everyone knows forza 5 was rushed, and gt6 is a great looking game. The real comparison will be gt7 vs forza 6.
Wow I'm really impressed with how GT6 holds up.
It's photomode which is totally fake so who cares. My old 386 PC could also load a static picture just as good. It's not like any of those pics are in real time or using any amount of processing power.
Project Cars will take both they lunch money.
Kaz has said that the GT6 engine isn't as suited to photo mode as it could be. It's an area he wants to improve for the next game. Still, you can get some pretty good results.
If only PS3 had 2 gigabyte of ram and a beefier GPU...
