Gran Turismo Sport's servers are finally back online after a long outage on Christmas Eve, which prevented most users from enjoying the game.
Great now send out an update so we can save our progress offline!
That would be great ideas. After few hours, I got three solutions but third one is far fetched and complicated. The First Solution is that PD have to cancel the partnership with FIA right away. It would make PD return to make traditional Gran Turismo, but there is consequences. FIA can sue PD for canceling partnership too soon. FIA is governing Motorsport in Europe. The second solution is that we gamer have to be patience long enough until FIA and PD contact have ended. The third solution is that PD could make a separate content in GT Sports. Which mean there will would be offline content and online content. For example, if you enter the offline content, all your contents will be saved while offline, but it won’t connect to the online content. The online content is only for those who want to compete each others fair and square without cheating. Because with FIA partnership, PD want to make sure there won’t be hacking or cheating in online racing game.
1 and 2 aren't an option for gt sport. But they could always make it a verify process for online play. Save offline but it need to be verified before online use to be able to play with the car/performance improvements
"Because with FIA partnership, PD want to make sure there won’t be hacking or cheating in online racing game." I'm pretty sure that's their goals, with or without FIA partnership.. FIA is completely irrelevant to this situation. I find it mind boggling that your only " solutions" involve a factor that has nothing to do with the problem lol. The only logical solution I see is a patch, removing this requirement and better encrypting the standard save file to prevent exploits, or have some type of verification to make sure the save file is not messed with, when online. OT So because of the large amount of users on GTS over the weekend, Sony thought they were under attack? lol! I wonder how many people were on, holy crap. Good to see it wasn't PD servers at fault.
About FIA, they are very powerful enough to sue PD. After all, they are responsible for all auto racing across in Europe. More importantly, FIA want to make to sure racing to be fair and square without cheating. Read the FIA on wiki.
I honestly doubt the FIA care if gtsport gets hacked or exploited through its save file.. the FIA is irrelevant to this.. I'm not sure you know exactly what the FIA is nor the point of the partnership . In reality the partnership is just publicity/PR. A racing simulator becoming partners with the face of real life autosport is a nice accolade for PD.

This is all I need now to make the purchase
Offline saves are a must followed by a weather system. Then I’d consider purchasing the game.
@Ghost Yeah that is a must and weather would be amazing
@Ghost of Tsushima Like I said, PD have 3 options to choose.
If in each race you need to be online what is the purpose of having save offline?
For gt mode
@Goldby "GT Mode" is a tutorial. The game is online.
No I mean like the sunday cup and stuff.I think it's called gt league or mode
Long outage!? How 10 hours be a long outage?
This article shouldn't have been approved without the original title.
That's quite a long time to not be able to play your new game.
10 hours isn't long outage. Really! Someone is at work 10 hours. And Christmas Eve is basically a working day too.
exactly, I even got my daily workout car
Yes, a 10 hours outage is not long if you are a PSN user. That's sad. Smh
Not everyone who has a PS4 is an adult as some who have one are children/teenagers so for them 10 hrs would seem like a long time
Was not out for me.-- or I just was not playing if for those few hours on Christmas eve.
Pretty sure I played on Christmas eve too and had no issues what times and regions were affected?
You'd think the best selling racing sim would have servers that weren't from 2005
The servers were fine. The problem was that so many people were trying to log on that it got flagged as a ddos attack.
i was back online not long after it went down yesterday. unless i got lucky.
Yet they to busy worrying about what's going on with Xbox to noticed what's going on over there this will be look over
LOL Polyphony Digital Doesnt care about the pathetic Xbox and its fans XD. But I do care since i responded. I care enough to give you advice. Join us and whoever you were will be forgotten and you will be accepted in the PS community with open arms. Dont be like septic and Wooly, The green defenders
Playboy I'm talking about playstation fans to busy worrying about what's going on with Xbox and they exclusives situations than to focus on
Did you really believe that crap you just wrote? Talk about a certain group of people on this site who are full of themselves and full of it.
The Christmas holidays update was awesome. Sever crash over Holidays weekend. Normal for most online games the noobs and kids are coming in with trash connection. Can't wait for major weather update. I know it going to be nuts.
The worst part about this is that PD stated people could continue playing and they wouldn't lose progress when the servers came back up as long as they put the PS4 into sleep mode with application still running, so I spent several hours making progress in the new league mode and then when the servers were eventually back up I (and many others) find that it still won't connect and the only way it will is if I restart the game and lose all progress. I only came back to complete the new league mode but I've had enough now.
That sucks so much. I've hung the game up for now because of all the little issues it's been having. I really like that they're doing with the patches but damn, I need some damn stability.
Probably due to an update. I know I had to update before playing. That sucks though.
Happy for those who have it. I don't understand how you make an online reliant racer that needs internet to even save progress but ok...
