All those years for GTA6 to be on PS3 makes no sense, this game needs to be on PS4.

Man this game is continuously giving and giving and giving. Unlike that other racing game on the competition that sells you so extra cars that cost you upwards of 60 bucks and selling you perks to level up faster. Shameful right there. I hope Polyphony continues this generous approach for Gran Turismo 7 on the PS4. And by that time the driving force pro and other steering wheels will be compatible with the PS4.

We need more events. Like A LOT more. This game is a very large downgrade from GT5 (in everything except visuals and overall gameplay performance, of course), where are all the community features GT5 had? where the heck are the Formula Ferraris? Where’s the Ayrton Senna event (and 80′s Honda Formula car while you’re at that??)

Even though I liked driving the F1 Ferraris in GT5 it really makes no sense for PD to renew the license for GT6 when they’re not even allowed to race with anything else on track. I can’t even imagine how much money that must cost. A better question would be: where the heck is the Ginetta G4? :(

I’m very happy to see these updates coming up, but what I would really love is some info from PD on more technical fixes. Like with the murderous pyschopath AI that always does its very best to ram me off the track whenever I make a mistake. This is making the S-5 mission race complete hell for me.

And props to PD for the sound in all the X cars. These things are vicious.

Keep it up, loving the continued seasonal events, new cars etc…

GT6 seriously needs more racing events, especially when it comes to rally. 3 dirt races isn’t gonna cut it. Game is way to short. The improved lighting, physics, UI and overall look of the game is great, but what happened to eveything else?

I’m a sucker for this franchise, but with racing sims like Project Cars on the horizen, PD better step up their game with GT7.

This is great to see the continuing support from the developers. So much to play time is a factor for me know with school & work. That’s why for the next GT game it needs to be on PS Vita this way I can game on the go.

I would like them to tone the AI on the kart races a bit lol! I suck at those events big time.

To those concerned about the lack of events and features and races. This game was developed much faster than 5 and they left out some things to make it that. This game is still in development as features like the 3D, endurance races, community, B spec, course designer, etc will be implemented in the future.

RE: Birthday car…
Ok, I appreciate the birthday present when I logged in this morning…
The crappy thing is I was born in 1983. Therefore, GT6 thought it prudent to give me a 1983 Honda Civic 25i… AND I CAN’T SELL IT! Ugh.

I acquired the Corvette StingRay Concept. That car is gorgeous, I wish it was a production model & I wish I had the cash to buy one.

I also must add that they added an “Interior ” field setting when buying a car so you can distinguish if it’s a “premium” or “simple” car interior. This is helpful since you couldn’t tell before unless the gallery setting was greyed out.
I also must say I absolutely hate the go kart challenges and find the ai on them very aggressive and disrespectful. I get very frustrated on those challenges and have had no problem placing first in every other challenge. Very frustrating.

The Red Bull X challenge was so much fun! The fan car is insanely fast and ridiculously fun to drive. The different variants of the X2014 are also really cool.

I really like the addition of new free cars. I’d really like to see more of the new 2014/15 editions of some recently unveiled cars like the new 2015 mustang, the new z06 corvette, and the new impreza just to name a few.

Also, thanks for bringing back the birthday gift car. I thought it was strange that it wasn’t included at launch.
