"When asked if GT6 would also incorporate 3D gameplay, Yamauchi said “to include 3D in the development is not very hard at all. That’s something we can do straight off, but I think we just have to wait for the hardware to advance.”"

I think that just settled it. A break in pattern, GT6 for PS4 it is...

I'd rather they do the multi-console setup where 2 consoles are connected by an ethernet cable producing one native image on screen. Since this feature is already applicable for multi-console/tri-screen setup and 3D is practically a dual image on a single screen, I simply don't see why this is not a verifiable option. It makes the 3D in it's NATIVE format without reducing resolution or frame-rate.

No wonder GT development takes so long, but lets be honest, if you were given the chance to experience the cars in real life you'd take it. No wonder the attention to detail is so high.

My dad only plays GT and likes to point out that it includes cars like the Chapparal 2j used in the defunct SCCA from the 70's which used a snowmobile engine to pump air under the car.

GT goes into this immense detail with every car (even a Fiat Panda) which no other game comes close to. GT isn't just a racing sim, it's a car encyclopaedia.

Personally I always enjoyed tuning a second hand Citroen Zantia so it live with a 458 Italia or driving the original Honda convertible which is built upon a bike chassis or taking a spin in one of Subarus first production car from the 50's.

Those are some sweet cockpits at GT Academy but WTF with them using the cheapest Logitech wheel? Man at the very least they should be using the Logitech G27 but personally I would choose the official GT5 wheel - Trustmaster T500. That wheel is a beast and how I rock GT5. Well the T500 and CSR Elite.

The t500 isn't that great. It's an overpriced wheel and pedal. Not to mention it breaks fast and the customer service isn't good. but if you have 600 to spend, its all up to you. I have a g27 and its realllllllly nice.

I am a member of nearly every sim racing forum on the net and I never heard of the T500 having a high failure rate / problems or poor customer service. Personally I question if you're not just blowing smoke cause of it's price tag since you old, "if you have the money to spend blah, blah, blah". Answer - why yes I do have the money and it was money well spent.

The T500 is one of the most powerful and accurate wheels on the market -$2K. I have owned nearly every wheel on the market, including the Logitech G25 and G27, over the past several years. The Thrustmaster T500 is in a completely other league compared to the G27. Fact, not fiction.

I just hope there is a greater variety of cars especially for the American and European cars. 1000+ cars is nice and all, but with 60+% of the cars being Japanese and half of those are Nissan skylines it just not doing it for me car selection wise.
