Gran Turismo 6 Vs Forza 4: Graphics Comparison Video

Sony and Polyphony Digital recently released Gran Turismo 6 for the PlayStation 3 earlier in the month. It's presumably the final game from Polyphony for the PS3 before heading upward and onward toward the PlayStation 4. Their simulated swansong for the PS3 gets compared to the Xbox 360 version of Forza Motorsport 4 and it doesn't look good for Gran Turismo 6.

Forza 4

dedicatedtogamers2393d ago

LOL. Forza 4's graphics were inferior to GT5. GT6 simply blows F4 out of the water.

thisismyaccount2393d ago (Edited 2393d ago )

Well.... technically speaking FM4 and FM5 are superior to GT5 and GT6 because both run (at least FM5 does, not 100% about FM4) at full 1080p.

But i have to agree, on the fidelity/graphical aspect GT looks better.

Riderz13372393d ago

@Thisismyaccount - Forza 4 runs at 1920 X 1080 resolution??? I don't think so lol...

Utalkin2me2393d ago (Edited 2393d ago )


Funny you bring F5 into a article that has F4 vs GT6. But F4 does not even come close to 1080p it runs native 720p, not only does GT6 beat it in resolution, it beats it in ever other aspect lighting, shadowing, physics, content.

neoMAXMLC2393d ago


Forza 4 doesnt run at 1080p. In fact GT6 is far closer to 1080p than Forza ever was last gen.

Sarcasm2393d ago

Forza 4 is 1280x720 and gt6 is 1440x1080. And the lighting engine in GT6 is still far beyond that static lighting of the Forza series.

scott1822393d ago (Edited 2393d ago )

Forza 4 looks better, graphically the difference is very small. I think there is better shading in Forza.. That is what does it for me.

Agent20092393d ago

PlayStation fanboys are killing me... how can anyone say GT6 looks better than Forza 4? Just looks at the freaking lighting, it's way ahead of any GT game.

ShinMaster2393d ago

Forza 4 simply mirrors the image.
It doesn't actually reflect and warp around the car's shape like in GT6.

Hehe! I wouldn't expect any other answer from dedicated to gamers... Such a PS fan...

Dee_912389d ago

You said "Playstation fanboys kill you", but everything you said afterwards indicated that, its not fanboys that are killing you, but people with different opinions than yours are killing you.That makes you, what some people like to call a simpleton.

Forza looks better in that video to me.But playing both of them on my tv GT6 craps all over forza 4.Its easy to find spots and certain situations that looks good, or in the this case, Laguna seca in gt5 and gt6 is very bland (and realistic but we are only talking aesthetically pleasing and forza and other racing games made the track more aesthetically pleasing than the real track) and the cockpit lighting in gt6 is very glitchy after 1.02.So yea in that situation Forza 4 looks better, but overall GT6 looks better.

Forza 4 in the video looks like the brightness is set way too high gt6 looked better to me.

GT6 came out two years after fm4 and yet this comparison shows theres very little in it.

geddesmond2393d ago

How to get fanboy senses tingling. Compare a Forza game against a GT game and watch the website hits rise.

I'm not even going to say which looks better because if one looks better than the other to you then whats the problem.

Nope I'm pretty sure gt is supposed to win every time

Gabenbrah2393d ago

Well of course GT6 will look better, it's 2 years older... But which one is the better game? Well IMO (Don't get upset) Forza 4.

Riderz13372393d ago (Edited 2393d ago )

But which one is the better sim?


Edit: Cool, using past Forza games to use Metacritic to support your argument? Why not Forza 5 Metacritic? Was on a next gen console and still couldn't beat out GT6. If you're going to use previous games in the series, then I leave you with this,

Gran Turismo - 96
Forza 5 - 80

Later playa.

Edit 2 - If you're going to use the last decade, why not talk about the highest rated racing series of all time?

Forza - 89

Gran Turismo - 90

Thanks for confirming Gran Turismo is the BEST racing series of all time, AND THE BEST SELLING.


Gabenbrah2393d ago (Edited 2393d ago )

Well of course, GT is a simulator game, doesn't mean it's a better game, everyone has different preferences. Forza is a mixture of sim/arcade. Forza to me has been a better and more fun racing game.

Forza 4: 91
GT6: 81

EDIT: I'm using the two games being compared, not two racing games from two different generations *Facepalm*... But if you're going to put it that way, which racing franchise is the highest rated the past decade? Forza, thanks for confirming that Forza is better, now you go buy those $200+ cars XD

EDIT 2: Clearly doesn't know how to average... Forza ends up higher, thus confirming it's better than GT :)

Dasteru2393d ago



GT = 96
GT2 = 93
GT3 = 95
GT4 = 89
GT5 = 84
GT6 = 81

Average (Rounded) = 90 (Exact value = 89.66)

Forza = 92
Forza 2 = 90
Forza 3 = 92
Forza 4 = 91
Forza 5 = 80

Average (Rounded) = 89 (Exact Value = 89.0)

Agent20092393d ago

Damn idiots. Comparing Metacritic scores! Great logic! Especially when one game is trying to be a simulator and the other is a mixture of sim and arcade.

Idiots, idiots everywhere.

Dasteru2393d ago


Sry but there is only one "damn idiot" here and it isn't the people using Metacritic.

Sim vs arcade is irrelivant, they are both racing games, they are both oft compared to one another, and Metacritic is by far the best source for a fair comparison of them as games.

They both look good although i did notice that the shadowing looks a bit better in Gran Turismo and the Gauge Cluster is more detailed.

I have no problem with it but it looks like the entire interior was doused in armor all to make it shine in forza 4

hyperfire212393d ago

Forza 4 better.. easy to tell

Riderz13372393d ago

...if you're blind.

Finished your sentence for you bud.

Utalkin2me2393d ago

I agree every aspect of that video shows how much superior GT6 is over F4. GT6 running at higher resolution, has better textures, better lighting and better shadowing. The trees do not look like card board cutouts either like forza....SMH

airforcex2393d ago

Yes; F4. People need to Google this track. GT is not even close. And I'm a Sony guy.
