Game Developer Working to Ensure that Gran Turismo 7 will have Improved Collision and Impact Physics

Apart from better graphics, new car models, and better sound quality, game developer Polyphony Digital is also working to improve the collision and impact physics of the upcoming car racing video game Gran Turismo 7 when it officially rolls out to the PlayStation 4.

They should've had that in GT5. Better late than never I guess.

FM3/4: You smack a guardrail/wall/car on the front-end of your car, the rear of YOUR car shows visual damage... Get outta here.

Seriously, these snide remarks of yours aren't seen in FM articles. Don't say it isn't a snide remark. With your Ford GT FM6 yet-to-be-released game avatar. Git SOME!

Disagree already, ahh ok...

Might as well...

Will FM7 have weather change? Snow racing, rain? Something in between, sleet? Fog? I can see it having fog. And a bunch of clouds like it usually has because truth be told, overcast conditions in GT5/6 make it look very realistic. Although it looks realistic in other conditions as well. Day to night transitioning and from dusk till dawn.

Oh and go ahead, I'll show you some gameplay footage (or err uhh, replay footage :P lol) that'll rival FM5ive.

Nighty night

Forgot to mention rally and kart racing. Whoopsies!

And moooooooon buggy drivin' lol. Hey, it's there. Who else can say that? It's legitimate. PD went to aeronautics institutes for knowledge on that. They didn't pull it out of their butts. And there's a 18-something mile track in GT6 based in Spain which is based upon the utilization of the yet-to-be-seen Course Maker for GT6. Not the most greatly textured track, but they've shown it's possible on a decade old-plus piece of hardware.

Ever wonder why they took SOOO LONG with GT5? GT6 is still a work in progress with free updates and content and GT7 will (hopefully) bend the space time continuum. This world has gone crazy anyway. It needs a massive change.

And it's very sour to bring this up here in this context, though it's beautiful, they partnered up with the Ayrton Senna Institute to promote the education and welfare of children and teenagers in Brazil; a sum of future sales of GT games goes to that institute that Ayrton's sister manages for him now. It wasn't just some exclusivity deal PD had to get Senna's kart and F1 cars in the game. I haven't even driven the Lotus yet since I really don't feel worthy enough. Soon though.

Crud. I forgot to mention that I played FM5 at my cousin's. I used his stupidly (in a bad way) suped up S200 at Silverstone and the physics were badass. I just don't have a universal steering wheel so I won't be getting an X1 anytime soon.

City1979883d ago

you forgot poor weather effects, ps2 quality car models, no car interiors, bad frame rate and 20 versions of the same car!

kraenk12884d ago (Edited 884d ago )

At least GT6 had weather and dynamic lighting already, something Forza still doesn't have on all tracks.

TomLovesXBOX884d ago

I have a feeling this is gonna blow everyone away when they reveal it. 1080p at 60 frames and it will probably be the best looking race game out. I can't wait :)

Crimzon884d ago

Yeah, as long as there's no recycled PS2/PS3 content. If they pull that nonsense again I'm giving up on this series completely.

Me-Time884d ago

No that's fair enough. I don't agree with your sentiment (I didn't click the disagree button either). But it's still going to look and play good. How can anyone deny GT's pedigree? Recycled content isn't always a bad thing as long as it's included in the game. Why are you making that out to be bad? I don't like using those cars, but there are plenty PLENTY of cars and a variety of them to choose from for me to continue having a good time.

Josuey884d ago

whats funny is that the non recycled cars from GT still outnumber forza car roster

UltraNova884d ago (Edited 884d ago )

More is worse and less is better, huh Crimzon?

Personally, I don't mind bringing the car count down to say 600 if they're all premium quality inside out.

Hell, I dont mind if they include all the cars from the ps2 era as well since I know for a fact that when GT7 comes out it will top anything out there in term of quality.

So either way we'll get a winner no matter how you slice it.

cannon8800884d ago

@ Crimzon

So you would rather have fewer cars to choose from just because they don't have a bazillion polygons and high resolution textures? Gran Turismo 6 has over 1200 cars. Hundreds of them are from the ps2 era. Kazunori Yamauchi from Polyphony Digital said that it took them six months to model each of the cars for Gran Turismo 5. Six months. Let that sink in for a moment. I say let them keep those cars in the new game. There's no way they would be able to remake all of those cars and release the game in the next year or so.

Lets see some footage already. Should have been an announcement at E3.

Me-Time884d ago

GT6 had it's own unveiling before E3 in 2013. Then they showed up in Spain in style. GT sells more games than any other PS exclusive, so SCE don't feel the need to give it as much or any publicity at E3 like regular ol' video games do. It's smart, but as a fan of GT and PD, I would really like them to give them their props on a grand stage. It's been way too long. They've already said it's PS's flagship title, but where's the love? I would definitely buy a SE PS4 of GT. I got the money now. And the wheel will be worth the purchase the moment I pop in GT7.

LifeInNZ884d ago

GT6...dont you mean GT5.1. Honestly, that felt like an annual release after GT5 given how little it actually advanced the franchise.

Big question is - will better collision/impact physics be felt and seen instantly.. or will it be on increments/show up only once you hit higher levels ( again ) like GT6?
