Yeah, the microtransactions are just part of it. The game is empty and missing basic things. 400 less cars, and half as many tracks is one (big) thing, but there's little things like no tuning before a race (any race) that just add up and make it feel like a rushed-to-get-it-finished-to-be-a-launch-game that makes it mundane. The driving is excellent. But the core structure and missing features and other stuff that isn't there or is the most bare minimum included in the game just so they could make a bullet-point out of it isn't enough to make it worthwhile. Wait till it gets patched, or the next installment comes out.

Gt6 released today. I picked up a gamestop 15th anniversary edition, lots of extra/special cars. Should arrive soon.

Looking forward to the new tracks. Ascari and willow springs should be sweet.

My major complaint with gt5 was that they boasted a thousand cars but 65 percent of them were scaled models from the old games. They looked like crap and you couldn't customize them. Also there didn't seem to be a bunch of races, not sure if they were seasonal or what, but they had nothing on the challenges of forza 4.

If they've done away with the pixel cars, added more variety in races, and added damage and a clutch, I'll check it out.

Conversely, my biggest complaint about forza4 was the economy was retarded. 5 races with a car and all parts are free for that manufacturer? That's ridiculous. Didn't make me feel like my car was built and special. It was free.

GT6……definitely a new paradigm.

great menus…load times….

then there is Willow Springs…goodness me.

Brand's Hatch….great rendering

and Bathust…nirvanna

This game brings the goods for car lovers. Whether you are a Xbox guy or not….it's worth it.

Just spent a couple hours on gt6 with my fanatec GT3 RS wheel and control set up. I have played and loved every GT ever released and GT6 does not disappoint.

I'm just going to wait for GT6 to come out on the PS4 and I'm not looking for a PS4 until after the holidays.

Just finished my A license. Tougher than gt5 tests that's for sure.

I'm digging the new physics, except for when fiats hit the brakes and the rear end comes off the ground in front of me haha

Half way through ALL the A license races….

I did the lunar rover race…..wow, freaky with the low gravity environment.

Physics and graphics are both much sharper, as are motor sounds. Much better car interiors too.

AI is pretty easy through this level. They have tweaked it a bit and not all the cars just follow the same line. Night races were tough…especially willow and bathurst.

Money seems to be much harder to come by too.

I am playing off line for now….what the heck happened to the used car market? Does that feature carry over from GT5 online?

Its in there somewhere. I know they talked about it in the pre-release info. I haven't found used cars yet tho either.

Just did the lunar. .. wow that's was nuts! Who knew you could flip uncontrollably through space SO FAST... haha

My favorite course (besides nurgurgring... duh) is matterhorn... holy crap that's a fast course with a ton of elevation and turns. Like a hill climb on crack!

I've been offline mostly too. Either tv is on or internet is on... since GCI sucks and for some reason only one works at a time (sorry for any of you who might work for them but the service sucks! )

Anyone want to offload their Xbox 360 slim? My xbox has been RROD'd for a while now and I'm wanting to replace it finally. I figure what a better time than now when everyone just upgraded! One with a large(r) hard drive would be nice, as well as kinect...

Thought I'd ask before I snag a Craigslist deal.

Forgive me if this has been covered, I don't read this thread.
I'll start from the beginning so I can get useful feedback, basically I just want to know if I should buy GT6 for PS3.

A couple years ago I bought Forza4 and played through it on my buddy's' 360, definitely the funnest racing game I've ever played. A while later I bought a PS3 for the sole purpose of playing GT5, I was sorely disappointed. Part of the problem may have been that it wasn't very linear, as I like to be directed through the game. It just wasn't nearly as fun as Forza4 to me. So of coarse I would like to play Forza5 but I will not be buying an xbox one, at least not for the foreseeable future. Nor will I be purchasing a PS4, at least not anytime soon. I noticed the other day that GT6 was released for the PS3 as well so my question is if you all think I would enjoy it, and on the PS3?

I enjoy GT6 a lot more than 5. It guides you more than 5 and I really enjoy the menus. I personally think they made a lot of changes all for the better. I woukd suggest picking up a used copy from gamestop and it will come with a 7 day full refund. So if you don't like it just take it back. Unlike a new one where you will only get a portion of your money back.
