Why does it feel as though the next Gran Turismo game in 2005 that WILL have online functionality will be for the PSP and not the PS2? It could just be me being paranoid but its the feeling I'm getting after reading that.

 

Ooooh...nice conspiracy theory, I like it. Maybe they finally hit the realization that they are going to have to have a truly killer app to move those (allegedly) $300 pieces of hardware and decided to hold back on the GT4 online stuff for this purpose.

Online or not, GT4 is going to be impressive.

I had the opportunity to play GT4 recently (and compare it to a playable version of Forza). Despite the fact I know it's using all sorts of tricks to achieve it's visuals, GT4 is easily the best looking game I have seen on any console. It's going to be a monster of a title for Sony this year.

 

Forza, on the other hand, was just kind of blah. It seemed to drive OK but it just doesn't look good at all. After experiencing the graphical wonder that is GT4, Forza is just so average. I also didn't like the way Forza penalizes you for driving outside the track pavement. One foot into the gravel and your vehicle takes a sudden and unnatural hit in speed. For a game so rooted in "reality" it's an odd design choice to put artificial barriers in the game.

I know Forza has been moved to Q1 2005 but I hope they push it back further and re-work the graphic engine.

This is dissapointing to say the least. I'll still buy it. I just hope it doesn't turn into the same kind of thing that sega gt had. Where it was an ok game but the online play was horrid when it finally came out.

 

Hopefully they'll use the extra time to up the number of cars you can have in a race.

I don't think it's you being paranoid, it makes complete sense. A PSP exclusive of this nature will sell hardware.

I don't have the broadband adaptor, so I won't even notice the difference. I'd considered getting one for this, just so I can play in the fastest lap tables, but then I'm too rubbish to ever reach anywhere in any case.

 

All I ask is that GT4 is substantially less soulless in its AI than 3.

Wow. They must have done a lot of work since the Toyota demo was released as IMO that looked absolutely awful.

This was the biggest reason for me to play GT4 online and why I would have bought it on day one. While the physics have always been great in the GT games, the AI has always disappointed me. They never react realistically, always taking the same line, never aggressive to fight for the position, and hardly ever a challenge late in the game.

 

I'm sure I'll pick up GT4, but it won't be at launch.
