A week on from the big Gran Turismo 7 reveal and launch date announcement, GTPlanet got the chance to sit down with Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi for an extensive one-on-one interview on the latest title.
I honestly shed a tear reading this. GT7 is going to be really good.
I'm going to need PSVR2 details, but it really does sound awesome already. I expect (and hope for!) that announcement to come with a NG headset in December. GT Sport was amazing in VR, but way too limited due to hardware. Their next effort will be a huge improvement.
I wouldn't count on it, it's still being held back by that same limited hardware.
Day one for me. It’s the only simulator I play. When I want to go flying down the street raising hell, it’s Forza Horizon. When I want a ACTUAL simulation hardcore racer I accept no substitutes. Gran Turismo all the way.
If you're into actual hardcore simulators, why Gran Turismo over Asseto Corsa or iRacing? Just curious
I didn’t like the last asseto corsa (didn’t like GT Sport either- it was more like a spin-off trial than a real GT which is why it wasn’t numbered) and I stopped playing PC games a few years ago. I’ll probably get a top notch desktop sometime in 2022 though. Maybe I’ll see what’s around then. In the mean time though, it’ll be GT7.

Just curious*** All cars/tracks are approved by the FIA, TAG Heuer is sponsor, partner and TIMEKEEPER for GT Sport without whom https://www.youtube.com/wat... there would never been an F1/GP championship.

Gran Turismo is enjoyable and fun while hardcore simulators are not. Not to mention very expensive just to get into it.
mikey15 Thanks, those are interesting facts indeed, even if some of them are not directly related to simulation. I mean, as a Williams fan I love TAG Heuer liveries, but I don't think that their presence impacts how accurately cars are reproduced. The exclusive release of concepts cars is pretty cool though. Asseto Corsa milestones are not that impressive, but the work they have made to capture the feedback of real cars is at an obsessive level, particularly with Lamborghini and Ferrari. About iRacing I don't know that much, but Max Verstappen loves it. For the record, I love GT. I remember how amazing the Giraud shading looked when the first one came out. It was the future.
Check out Assetto Corsa is you enjoy hardcore simulation driving games. Project Cars 2 also holds up well.
@Colbertinator I’ve never tried Project Cars actually. It’s that good huh? All the different race types that are in GT are in Project Cars? Rally, F1, Drag, Street race, track race, so forth on some real tracks and courses? *edit* After a quick google search Project Cars 2 even has go carts 🤣😂 Wow. I might have to see if that’s the game I’ll get to hold me off to GT. That sounds awesome.

Oh wait Overview Racing is about being the fastest during time trials and the smartest during the race.

Not sure why you're getting downvoted for stating a fact. Out of all the so called simulators, Assetto Corsa is regarded by most sim purists as being the closest to how the actual cars handle and drive in real life. The detail in the nuances of driving is astonishing. It puts GT to shame in the "sim" aspect. Assetto is lacking in the fun stuff, though. Still, if you find just driving cars fun, then Assetto cant be touched. I'd absolutely love it if GT7 was complete in VR, though. The love PD puts into the aesthetics of the cars would be porn in VR. @mikey Money talks, son. Just because it is the official licence, it doesn't mean jack shit. Stop shilling for an inferior sim. And I say this as a fan of Gran Turismo. But I like being as close to the real thing as possible, and GT ain't it. Not even close.
They went nuclear option to stop car and save modding. Come on man all they need is a system that will detect abnormal PP and car data so they will ban players the second they joined online. But so much of their single player features require internet so they already knew that they already have so many loopholes for hackers modders to do what they do best. So in a way I can't blame them going such extreme practice. Not happy about that and we still stuck with 16 car grid. RT is currently only on replays and garage so they still have 5 months to make that work during races but won't be a deal breaker for me if they still can't. Disappointed but understandable still getting the game regardless.
The fia likely required them to go nuclear to stop cheating via save file editing. It's likely a precondition fir the fia to license the game.
One of the only reasons I purchase Playstation!
it may be coming to pc too! Hopefully they allow modding
Sounds like there's not a lot of difference between the PS4 and 5 versions beyond loading times and the controller. These are nice things but it's not going to be the jaw dropping showcase for the PS5 that it perhaps should have been. Dynamic weather on some tracks but not all? Hmm. Not convinced that there have been the advancements in AI and collision damage/physics that it needs either but wait and see on that.
Ray tracing as well, but I don't think that was mentioned.
Really looking forward to this, will be buying a new wheel too.
Can't wait for this. I'm a sucker for GT
Absolutely avoids talking about any graphical differences between PS4 and PS5, talks about the obvious....ssd loading speed.
They obviously do not want to put their PS4 version in a bad spotlight so they will avoid the comparisons. They will praise both and claim they both look great. We will only truly find out the differences when we get graphical comparisons.
Your purchase is guaranteed to 8nclude non stop improvements patches and content it's insane value
I hope they keep the Livery System the same, I think spent more time uploading decals than racing.
Agreed, loved the livery system was really fun just getting lost in creating cool looking car graphics.
I still wanted damage added. oh well.
