Yes I am and yes you are right although that maybe more relevant to off-road cars rather than flat bottomed races cars that sit a couple of inches from the ground. But this was extreme. He's able to drive inside the apexes of multiple corners without a hint of warning or penalty from the game.

I've done ice driving in Sweden, rallying (albeit briefly) plus single seater racing. I haven't mixed all three together mind you. Closest I've come was the snow weather mod for the Nurburgring Nordschleife on rFactor.

That was my immediate thought.... that of 'exceeding track limits' without so much as a warning.

GT Sport should have quite a lot DLC coming, including cars (eg. SuperGT) and tracks.

Perhaps @kals could give his first impressions on the game?

It's apparently online only.

Re the thread title, I dont know.
They all come with strengths and weaknesses.

Currently inclined for Forza 7, because it is somewhat simulation and has a whole lot of cars.
But it would mean having to buy an X Box especially for that.

Project Cars 2 looks good, but from what I gather, it still has bugs and handling can be very twitchy.
Also, too much detail for my liking. I simply dont have the time these days to spend hours on setup.

And Gran Turismo ... I will give it a chance, but only after seeing what DLC comes along.
Not a big fan of the new philosophy. I used to be attached to a particular car, and that seems impossible.
Add to that the limited amount of tracks and the approach away from offline, and it is enough to have my doubts.

I think I will wait for Wolfenstein II to come out and spend my money on that.

Yep, that video sums it up nicely. Still a great game, handling is as it has always been and the races are fun. Yet there is seemingly a lack of depth which beggars belief.

If I were to describe this game, it's like Polyphony have rereleased GT5-Prologue instead of a full game and yet charged full price.

Meh, I'll still take it over Forza anyday and plan to have a lot of fun.

I have refused to buy a PS4 because of the lack of backward compatibility with PS3 games, Gran Turismo Sport would have been the game that made me spend out the $300 for the PS4. I bought a PS2 and PS3 to be able to play the latest Gran Turismo games.

Maybe, this time, I will not bother, if it is going to be DLC bulls**t instead of getting a full game, $60 is a lot of money for a game which is effectively a shell of a game that you have to spend out hundred of dollars more to get the best out of the game.

But that seems to be gaming in general now, which is very disappointing, and the reason I have mostly turned my back on gaming.

@Antonov , I agree, I will be spending my money, or maybe a family member will buy me Wolf II as it's released on my birthday.

I've turned my back on videogames in the last 4 years - my last purchases were F1 2012 and FIFA 14. Gran Turismo, the new F1, FIFA and the COD were all tempting me to get a PS4, but the review of GT sounds disappointing. I'll probably stay away from video games for a few more years...

For the online play with GT Sport you (obviously) need to a PlayStation Plus subscription. Which I don't, because I don't game that much. So that's another $60 per year if I want to race online.

I used a 2-day free trial instead last night and while I had fun with a few races the experience was quite limiting. Only 3 races to choose from and I'm not sure if that's it per day or if they are changed / rotated during the day.

Racing wise the game is as good as it ever has been, but from an overall immersiveness perspective I'm feeling disappointed.
