This is just a prologue for the upcoming GT6 for PS4

I'm curious to know if your existing garage from GT 5 can be imported to GT 6.  It would be a bit tedious to start over again acquiring cars.

forza's graphics make this game look like it should be played on the gamecube

I just hope that for GT6, that there won't be 30 Skylines and a car list of over 1200 cars that 90% of which are repeats and PS2 quality.

Polyphony Digital has to understand that quantity ≠ quality.

Only thing that maters,

Can you tune your car like in forza?

Im a PS player, always have ben, but it pisses me of that in the Tuning aspect Forza passed GT years ago!!!!

great franchise, created a genre right when 3d was fresh. If games were half as inventive now as they were back then it would be amazing.  gt5 was kinda bland, not bad but definitely didn't live up to the other 4 monster titles. Hopefully they go the right route this time.

I miss the times when you had to play the game to buy and unlock cars. I love GT, but this is bullshit.

It's a shame that they are releasing this on PS3. Considering how long they take to make GT games, we aren't going to see a next gen GT game for a while!

Ohh didn't read well. The 1 million credits and the 4 cars for preordering the game and the rest if you buy the anniversary edition

I wasn't a huge fan of GT5's singleplayer but the online in that game was hella good. Hopefully Polyphony can really nail both this time and make a truly remarkable racing game.

I'm hoping this will be much better than GT5, it's looking nice can't wait to play it.

Focus 2013 like mine and the Aventador would both be nice, but these should eventually hit the online marketplace. No Gamestop pre-order for sure.

no more standard/premium cars, no more experience points restrictions, no more seperate A/B spec, no more 16 different versions of the same car.....please more great music, more new racing cars, more offline competitions, more realistic damage before level 40, more competitors on track

Love the GT game's but none have been as good as GT 3, sadly GT is no longer the dominating racing game, Forza now has the trophy, sad but true,

GT5 was shit, skipping this. Would be good if full damage was put in.

It's because of games like this that I'm glad I'm waiting on getting next gen systems.

15 years... crazy.  Still can't believe it's been 12 years since A-Spec.

That game was.. incredible.  There was nothing like it.

Nice extras but I'm not getting this....

The Crew looks to be more my style.....and even though Drive Club may not be a simulation racer it looks more interesting that Gran Turismo at this point.....

the only other console simulation racing game that's any good is Forza....Forza is lightyears ahead of Gran Turismo.....just way more you can to in Forza, way more freedom and way more customization.....better game overall...

I think the paint chips are important, without them half of the cars would be Matte Black in GT5 and you really think about it every time you paint a car rather than just making all your Lambos yellow and Ferraris Red, I would appreciate more creative control in the application of the paint, like strips or patterns but I always drive first person anyway so the actual physics and control are much more important and I felt they were the most realistic in GT5.

GTA V, GT6 and the inevitable AC4, Pupeteer and Diablo 3 bundles... Pretty good combos for the Xmas battle. Now Sony must complete the tactic with a PS3/Vita bundle.

I can't believe they still have paint chips. Use that color once and that's it Polyphony Digital just do want to learn and grow the series. Gt5 was only good for drifting and hot laps and the nordschleife challenges which they should of had for every track and with different cars. Racing was so fake in single player you always start in last place and some how win.

I don't like the practice of putting all these care behind a wall (pay or pre-order), but what can you do... Gamestop has a tight grip on the industry, and this is how they get people in the door. As long as the Nissan count isn't 5 to 1 again, I'll be okay with a purchase.

When it comes to console racing, Gran Turismo's pedigree can't be beat.
