Gran Turismo Sport Limited Time Demo Has Arrived, Post Your Impressions

A Gran Turismo Sport limited time demo is scheduled to arrive on October 9 through October 12 at 8:00 AM PT. If you’re a PS Plus member, you can pre-load the demo on October 7 at 8:00 AM PT and access the game at 12:00 AM PT. If you aren’t a member, the demo will be available on October 9 at 6:00 PM PT.

UPDATE: (10-7) The Gran Turismo Sport Limited Time demo is available for pre-download, if you’re a PS Plus subscriber.

UPDATE: (10-9) The Gran Turismo Sport Limited Time demo is available for everyone to play now. Remember, the limited time demo lasts until October 12 at 8:00 AM PT.

The demo allows fans to unlock vehicles and earn in-game credit, which will be transferable to the full game when it launches on October 17.

At the start of the demo, drivers will have the option to experience a taste of Sport, Campaign, or Arcade mode. New features such as the innovative Scapes Photography mode and Custom Livery Editor are also available for the very first time.

In Sport mode, drivers can prove just how fast they are by putting down their fastest lap time. At the end of each qualifying session, it’s an all-out battle against other drivers with similar performance abilities ensuring each race is equal, fair, and highly competitive.

Campaign mode gives players the chance to improve their driving skills across numerous challenges, missions, and circuit experiences. Each of these modes play a key role in making every driver better prepared for racing online against others. As you complete various trial and Daily Workouts, you will be awarded with numerous vehicle unlocks, in-game currency, and Experience Points, furthering your Driver Profile and personal garage.

For those looking to just jump in and drive, the Arcade mode offers a wide range of vehicle classes on three pre-selected circuit configurations with different terrains. Whether you want to go for high-speed oval racing on Northern Isle, hone your technical skills on Dragon Trail, or drift sideways through the corners in rally, race on your own terms as you choose from multiple driving aids including braking and or steering to hone your skills. You can also race against a friend offline in the classic 2-player split screen mode.

The True HDR workflow and physics-based rendering tech of Scapes must be experienced firsthand to be truly appreciated. This is not your traditional photo mode as each photo location contains all the light energy information of that scene, enabling you to place your personalized car in hundreds of real world locations.

To round out the demo experience, the Livery Editor allows you to add your own personal touch of customization through numerous logo designs. You can also change the color of the car, wheels, mirrors, hood, spoiler, and much more.

  1. I'm glad this is coming out. It will give me a chance to try the game before release. I really enjoyed the single player races against the A.I. in the beta but they removed it because they wanted everyone online racing. If the full game allows us to set up races against the A.I. on any track with any car I'll probably buy it. That's all I do in Project Cars, I don't need a career mode.

    Nice, This will help me decide vs. Forza. Sony really needs to release another Motorstorm, that would be crazy on the PS4 Pro.

    I love the first two motorstorm games.
    I downloaded the demo last night. This morning I decided to start it up and see if it was playable yet. It’s not but you can do all the adjustments for your display. Once that is complete it takes you to the game but everything is locked , however if you sit and watch it will run a series of still shots and videos that are simply stunning. If the game looks this good I’ll buy it for the visuals alone.
    Yeah I deleted the UK demo and am downloading the North America demo now. Your progress carries over to the full game so I want to be playing this version.
    Got it downloaded and started up....but I can't do anything. There's a message about the server being down for maintenance which blocks out a lot of options, but even Arcade Mode isn't selectable although it says it should be offline.
    Any ideas? Or just wait until the 9th when the servers come on?
    Same here 20 mins left to wait.
    After playing it for 45 mins, I have no urge to get this game.
    Arcade mode, and online modes I played both against A.I. and real people. Don't like it!
    Then after all that work, my game woudn't save due to server issues.
    Not getting a game, that requires online just to save progress.
    Tried to play this game last night with my son, but was unable to get anything to load since the server was down for maintenance. I'll probably wait a bit on this game - it does look nice though.
    Hmm haven't had a single network issue or crash issue with the demo, but I didn't start playing til about 2 hours ago. The driving is very rewarding and ran a couple of online races and finished in the top 5, but I haven't played a racer in a while. Game is stunningly beautiful on the Pro and super smooth.

    Well so far I’ve done the first 8 lessons in driving school and tried one each of the mission challenge and circuit experience. Did a couple on line custom races and several custom races against the A.I. I’ve got 206,380 credits and 2600 mileage exchange points and have won two new cars.
    I love the game so far , pre ordering today. Everything is so smooth feeling , handling is fantastic, visuals on the Pro are amazing. Also to my surprise there’s more to this game then I thought there was going to be.
    The graphics and presentation are excellent. I tested out some training, mission, and arcade modes. I then tried online race, it let me complete the trial run, then it said server maintenance and went to a black screen, followed up by some message game cant be saved when the online server is down.
    When the servers are down you literally can't do anything in the game. This is horrible.
    I did get to mess around with it a little bit, though, and the game just screams polish. The actual driving feels great too. Hopefully the servers will be back up later.

    I got to run a quick race this morning and this thing is just stunning on the Pro, as others have said. Wow.
    The driving feels outstanding so far, sound is at least adequate so far (though still not a strength), and the AI hasn't offended me in just the one race, but they were kind of spread out in a line/trail so it was a bit more of a passing excercise but they didn't shunt me like I wasn't there. More racing to come but it's looking good so far.
    As has been said, polished as hell, and if you just let it run in the menus with the 'car porn' shots, it makes for a stunning 4k demo :)
    Here we go again. Just when I thought I was done adding racing titles to the catalog, GTSport comes and kicks me in the face for thinking that. What's left to add that others haven't already, but as LT Dan mentioned, the game is absolutely stunning on the Pro and my 4k Sammy - It's almost as much fun watching replays as it is racing the game -

    Yeah, Pro and KS8000 here, and the beauty of this game is unreal. This is as close to photo-realistic as we've come this generation.

    Anybody played this and Forza and can do a Graphics/Gameplay comparison?

    Just in my brief time with the GT Sport demo I can so far sum it up like this:
    Forza - ASTOUNDING looking videogame
    GT Sport - **** looks real (mic drop)
    In all seriousness, because I don't want to short Forza 7 here, they are both beyond my expectation. It's like Forza is a 10, graphically...and that is amazing, it does look brilliant.
    But GT Sport goes to 11.

    Wow. I'm trying to decide between the two since I'll be getting an X. Can't wait to try it after work in a few.

    If you're getting an X that should play in to your decision.
    So just whore yourself out like the rest of us and get both.

    Lol that's more than likely what I'll do. Does GT have Nascar? I love that about Forza!
    For people saying that GT Sport graphics beat Forza 7 that's a flat out lie!
    Don't get me wrong, GT Sport is an amazing looking game and I'm glad they've returned! But the graphics aren't even better than Driveclub worse enough trying to compare it to Forza 7.
    They are barely on the levels of details with Forza Motorsport 5! And yes I've done the comparisons and can back that up with video proof.
    Pro Mode or not it doesn't change that, also GT Sport gameplay physics are bland and very outdated compared to most games today.
    I notice their graphics are hit and miss too! In the gameplay graphics downgrade when on the tracks while racing. During replays and menus the cars are increased in details and items are added to the environments that aren't there during gameplay.
    This is misleading with graphics details, as a owner of every Gran Turismo game ever made and completed 88% of them. I can say I was expecting more. The online only thing is a big mistake, and the game would have been better without that option.

    Damn did you make Foza? Sound like you damn near about to cry, because someone opinion differs from yours. These are games enjoy them and so what if someone thinks it looks better than the other.

    We're waiting to see the video proof, but I'm just gonna go out on a limb and say GT Sport is probably closer to Forza 7 than 5. Lol

    No but I'm a multi-platform owner and a big racing fanatic from PC Racers to Consoles!!! And definitely an obsessive graphics person.
    I don't like people lying about something that is simple and obviously false! #factsmatter

    Actually the video is processing now!!!
    Preview though - Had to use Forza 6 to get the same car for Preview!
    I've been playing this demo since 5:30 am , it's 3:30 pm now and I've only spent about 30 minutes playing online. This game IS NOT online only. In fact there is much more to do single player wise then I thought there was going to be.
    Any how I just came back to say I ran a few more of the mission challenges. Once you complete all 8 in stage 1 , stage 6 unlocks. The second challenge in stage 6 is a full course race. You start with 6 laps remaining and you must make a pit stop for tires and fuel. You need to finish 7th or better. These things are pretty cool, nice change of pace. I was surprised the game actually shows a pit crew changing your tires.
    I'm not going to get into the which game looks better, I haven't seen Forza 7 yet. Forza 6 looked great but handled like a soft turd. I'm sure 7 on the xbox one x will be up to par with GT Sport on the Pro. All I can say is when the headlights on the car behind me shine through my rear window and light up my dashboard it's photo realistic, no kidding. On the Pro I see no difference between the replays and live on the track racing. 4k is 4k

    Your reality don't make it so and who cares about your pedigree. You in here crying about how some people feel GT looks better, who cares and you are trying to turn your opinion in to facts.

    Game crashing immediately when I enter the options screen from the main menu, 100% of the time. Anyone else?

    Its a bug, but if you ignore options initially and dive into the different modes, progress through the game, do settings while paused on the track, something triggers the options to work normally later on.
    The options screen works as it should now for me but not when the game started at the beginning.
    I just keep getting server errors while trying to do either lobby races or matchmaking races. I guess the stress testing is too much for the initial wave of population.

    Yeah, same here, actually. Just some bug with the first run of the options screen. Once I did some other stuff in the game and went there again it was fine.
    Game is fun as long as I'm turning down the ridiculously overblown slipstream and boost options (can be done in the custom race setup). I just don't really enjoy the short types of races where you weave in and out of other cars and go 20th to first in 2 laps anymore. Just not fun.

    Just had my first online race -- a five lapper. Three of us jacked our cars up on the first turn and had to pit. Great race after that lol. So much fun.
    I really believe this game is going to change how other titles handle the social aspect. Being able to post and reply to messages is awesome.
    I appreciate when racing games don't make the actual driving of cars rocket science. Obviously, you'll need skill to be good, but I'm not fighting the vehicles.
    This game is the ****.

    I only played this for a bit earlier but I enjoy reading through the impressions and very excited for another GT. It's just baffling to me that so many people get defensive over Forza vs GT and I'm not referring to this thread, but everywhere else. The fact that there are multiple powerhouses in the racing genre, even outside of GT & Forza, is something that's so damn rare in sports gaming these days. The competition literally forces these devs to push the limits for each game and it shows through the quality of the products. The racing genre has the ability to turn people into actual fans. Hell, it can even help educate people on the mechanics of different vehicles. The level of detail and customization that these games offer makes it hard to tell if these are games, encyclopedias, automotive engineering handbooks, etc... Well, at least for me, since I know little about cars. It also makes me wonder that if these games are worth $60 (for the base games), then are other sports games really worth that much as well, especially the yearly titles? But that's a topic for another forum.
    Have you guys messed with the photo mode yet? The depth of that thing is ridiculous. I pasted these cars onto a background, but it looks like a race image. Very impressive.

    Photo mode is amazing, I just wish those details actually passed over too actual gameplay graphics, they are night and day different.
    All the cars and tracks look amazing in replay and in photo mode, but are downgraded tremendously in regular gameplay graphics.

    All in good fun, but...
    Good grief...Sony was smart to release this demo because they are going to get my 60.00.
    How can I NOT buy this? This is the most fun I've had with a GT game since...ever. How did we go from dry and clinical gameplay, and dumb as a post AI, and crappy sound to this??
    Great job Polyphony. Take my money.
    I think owning this AND Forza 7 is the best 1-2 punch in car video game history.
    (but F1 2017 is still #1 for me, but it's a whole different animal)
    I’m on the fence about buying this. I was not considering it before this demo. I own Project Cars 2, NASCAR Heat 2, Drive Club and Asseto Corsa. I really only play Heat and PC2. I love PC2 and it seems a bit tougher to drive the cars, didn’t really love that part about PC1 but got used to it.
    This is really the first GT game I’ve played. The graphics are good but the driving seems slightly more casual. So people put as much time into set ups as they do with Project cars? I get smoked online by people who can tune a car (I can’t). If the online is more driving stock set ups I would definitely buy this.
    GT Sport is the real deal. I am just happy to finally be able to race CLEAN laps! The handling is superb. I feel totally in control of my car and this is with the Dual Shock. Comparing Forza 7 and GT Sport is inevitable, but I have to give the graphics edge to GT Sport. This game is so good looking. One thing I really appreciate is the livery editor. The vinyls and decals are hi res, and now I can deck out my car any way I like without worrying about ugly low res decals when  zooming in. That has always bothered me about the Forza series. They make beautiful racing games, but they force you to "dirty" up your cars with those hideous low res vinyls. At any rate, Forza 7, Projects Cars 2, F1 2017, and GT Sport... It's been a VERY good year!
    Although it may not be the most realistic driving aid in the world, I think the radar that's in the in-car d-pad display is pretty cool. Which is good, because at the moment I'm having a hard time finding a toggle for the rear-view mirror...lol. It's also extremely hard for me know I'm racing door-to-door with someone, so it helps there too.
    Also, have to say it - this game handles MUCH better with a controller than PCars. It's a little floaty at times, but I feel like I have much more stable control of the car and won't suddenly spin myself out with a jerky analog movement.
    Pretty good race for my first Daily. I qualified 4th and finished there. I'm trying to upload it but the youtube upload isn't working from PS4 and I would have to trim it down for twitter. In the meantime I shared it on the in-game social feed if any of my PSN friends want to check it out.
    Edit: Uploaded.

    Certainly the cleanest race I've ever seen run in GT (in that nobody appeared to be trying to intentionally wreck or be stupidly aggressive). For my part, I don't think I traded paint with anyone through the whole thing.
    And yes, that's with a controller. It's pretty obvious on the turn right before the chicane on the first lap, because I came in too slow and started panic-weaving too much trying to right myself. I cleaned that up on the other 3 laps.
    I think ABS and TCS were locked on for this race. Of course that helped.
    Being able to enjoy the online racing is key for me in deciding whether to purchase this - because I just don't think I'm going to find much value in the single-player aspect. This was a very good start.
    Last night I ran the last challenge in stage 6 of the mission challenges. It's a 30 lap endurance race with tire wear and fuel consumption on. You will need to pit every 7 laps for fuel. Lap 28 I was in second place, lap 29 I ran out of fuel and coasted back to the pits. Finished 20th out of 30 cars. failed the challenge. I'll be doing this one again today.
    If you want to drive some different cars on different tracks check these challenges out. They are great. Stage 1 I got all gold, stage 6 all silver so far except the last one. These are a challenge for sure. They start out easy but increase in difficulty. The only downside is you need the hud on your screen to check fuel, I usually have everything off my screen. Wish they would assign this to the d-pad like PC2 does. Love this demo.
    Son of a B***H. I was going to pass on this game, but having played it and agreeing with everyone’s opinions I going to pre-order it.
    Only concern I have was the AI breaking on turns, I felt they went into the turns too slow causing be to crash into them. I did jack the difficulty up to Professional.

    The challenges and driving school are nice and almost fill in that void I feel with the traditional career mode we have had since GT 2 being gone. I failed that challenge too and ended up running out of fuel, but gonna try it again tonight and maybe short shift on some parts of the track to save some fuel.
    Just finished the 30 lap endurance race and ended in 8th place and won the bronze. I must say that I didn't expect much from this game but after playing the demo the last 2 days, i definitely like it a lot. I feel that the graphics are unreal in this game. I have Pcars2 and Froza on the xbox one and I must say that the graphics in GT Sport are a hell of a lot better than that of Pcars 2 on the Xbox one. Im not sure what PCars 2 looks like on the PS4 but right now I feel the GT Sport looks a lot better than Pcars 2 on Xbox one (im sure Pcars 2 will look a lot better when the Xbox one X drops but for now, for me personally, GT sport looks really good and better than Pcars 2) .
    In addition to the graphics that are in GT Sport, I had a great time running the endurance race with the Porsche and felt like I was in control the entire race. Control wise, I think GT sport is a lot better than Forza 7. I enjoy Forza 7 as well, but at times, I find handling some of the cars in Forza a bit challenging and tend to have the feeling that my car is on ice.
    After trying the demo, I think I will be preordering GT Sport. Hoping to run some races with some fellow OSers when the game drops! I really like what they have done with this game.

    Played a bit last night, had slow cars, can't wait to try it with more powerful vehicles!

    If you run the Challenges, you'll get to race with even the concept super cars...pretty wild.
    Just so I'm clear....we do get to carry over all these free cars I'm earning and credits, etc to the retail version?

    That is what I read and understand..what you earn in the beta/demo carries over to the retail version as well.
    got a ps4pro, but my time is too limited to test and play rookie-racing games :D
    no motion blur? aeh, get lost
    rubberband-ai? aeh, get lost
    90° driver arms animation? aeh, get lost
    no career-mode? doesn't matter, coz you allready lost 3 times haha :grin:

    I believe I read that there is a cap to that, like 3 cars and 1M in money. Which 3 cars and how that is decided I don't know. I will have to find where I read that .

    Ha I will give my recommendation. It's amazing how each game offers something the other doesn't - It's almost like a strange economic conspiracy to get one to buy them all.
    PC2 - Amazing car and track offerings, tedious handling with control
    Forza 7 - amazing visuals, strong car offering, weak track list
    NH2 - officially licensed representation - strong physics and handling, sub-par graphics
    Dirt 4 - amazing depth, handling, realism, - limited genre
    GT Sport - Stunning visuals, strong handling, strong car offering, weak track offering.

    Tedious handling for pc2 really hit what I was trying to get at in my thread. Hell you should be a writer Bob.

    I'm enjoying the demo more than I thought I would. I had GT6 on my PS3 and was using a Fanatec GT3 wheel with it, which took it to a new level. It's hard for me to make a reasonable comparison between GT Sport and Forza 7, since I don't have a force-feedback steering wheel and pedals for my PS4, as I do my XBox One. Still, it feels pretty good with the DS4 controller, even though I suck out loud with ANY racing game on any hand held controller.
    The AI drivers seem to be a little more independent than the other GT game I've played, although they still seem to behave to act like a school of fish about 2/3 of the time. I like the driving feel of the game, even through the controller, although I imagine it would be a special treat with a wheel.
    GT Sport is a feast for the eyes, even on my standard PS4. There are places where it's a bit lacking that seem out of place. For example, the grandstands at the oval track almost look like something out of the previous gen. OTOH, the off road course in Colorado looks incredibly organic. This game must look awesome on a PS4 Pro and a 4K display!
    If this game catches fire, I can almost see myself buying a Cronus Max Drive Hub (which is getting rave reviews) so I can use my Thrustmaster TX Leather Edition with the PS4 and GT Sport.

    100% agree with this after trying this on my regular PS4 for comparison. It is completely cleaned up with the PS4 Pro version.
    I hope they tweak the game to allow campaign and arcade playable when servers are down. Currently those two modes are greyed out when the servers are not online.
    I also hope they reduce the waiting time for matchmaking races. Having 5 minutes would better, then 10,15 minute wait times.

    They sent out a message on the game last night that those will be playable when the servers are down with the final build......I know arcade for sure, cant remember if they said campaign as well.
    I've had a few crashes navigating the menus but the on track/road action is buttery smooth. Incredible racing experience. Driving around the oval and watching it back on replay was truly impressive. If a Nascar game looked/played this good I'd be all over it. Customization of everything from helmets to cars.
    Can't wait for the full game.

    Rubber band AI is the worst. The AI has a tendency to dive bomb me as well.

    Yeah. There's actually an option to turn off the trailing car boost as well as lowering the slipstream effect (which might be why they divebomb you.) Can only set it for custom races though. At least lets you earn credits in that mode.
    But in the other modes, the boost and slipstream is way overblown. I get it though because you couldn't win in 2 lap races vs the AI otherwise. Makes it feel cheap and artificial though.

    It's a fun demo. Very solid races but it needs the tracks. Not sure how much mileage I'll get out of it but it's fun. Also, what's with the cheesy music at the beginning of the online races? :grin:

    If you are running custom races turn the boost off.

    how similar is this to gran turismo 5? single player / career mode wise?

    Not similar at all. GT Sport Campaign mode consists of 3 stages:
    1. Driving School In the demo only the first 8 are unlocked. It seems similar to the license tests from the older GT games.Things like cornering, stopping within a certain area, and so on, there are 48 of them.
    2.Mission Challenge. These vary from knocking over cones to completing a section of a course within a certain time. As you progress there are also full races with pit stops included. I found these very fun and challenging the further you get into it. Stage 1 is open in the demo, complete that and stage 6 opens up. There are 8 stages in all with 8 challenges in each stage.
    3.Circuit Experience. This one was the most limited in the demo but it appears that you will need to run sections of the circuits within a certain time, then run the full course.
    In each of the 3 above you are awarded credits and gift cars for completing events.
    There is more to the single player part of the game though in the arcade area. In here you have Single race, Time trial, Drift trial, Custom race, 2 player battle. You also get credits, mileage exchange cash, and rank up playing these modes. I've been spending most of my time in the single player custom races. I currently have 752,810 credits , 12,060 mileage exchange credits , I'm almost level 18 , and I've been awarded 7 cars.
    I must warn you and everyone who reads this, This game is addicting, I work for myself so it's no big deal but since the demo came out I've been working 6 hour days instead of 8 or 9 hour days so I can get home and play. I can only imagine when the full game comes out. I know I'm taking Tuesday off.

    I thought demo was supposed to be over already. Mine still works, and there is active rooms online.

    Same. Not that I'm complaining, mind you :y220b:

    Went to gamestop to get a used copy of PC2 and played for about 30 minutes to compare....... No comparison as far as graphics, gameplay, physics, and handling

    Well I can say this about the full retail copy - racing on expert with no assists and a controller is about as good as it gets for non-wheel users

    I miss the demo already. I'm pumped for next week.
    I don't think this game is going to appeal to a lot of reckless drivers. The whole etiquette and sportsmanship rating is a very nice touch. That alone should encourage a good community.
    I played a couple of online races and both of them were very clean, even with a full field. There was some bumping here and there, as can be expected, but no one was out there blatantly ramming into other cars.
    In my final race, I had an awful qualifying time and started in 21st. I ended up finishing in 14th, but I wish I had one more lap because I was flying on the last one. I had the track down by that point. That was some of the most fun I've ever had in an online racer.
    I know some people don't dig the offline offering, but what they've given us is fine for me. I enjoy trying to gold the challenges. Who knows where this game will be a year from now, but I'm excited for the future.
    See you fellas on the track.

    Nice impressions Pappy - the game is def geared for a different type of crowd, than say Forza 7 or NASCAR Heat would attract - you referenced the etiquette-laden overtones, and I would also include elegance in describing the title. The music that accompanies the game is a direct reflection of that.

    Just being a little paranoid I suppose, but I don't want to lose my earned progress so far from the demo (I know it should all be on the servers though)....am I okay to delete the demo, as the game itself will auto download from PSN soon? They are like separate entities correct?

    Shouldn't need the demo for any progress earned. The save is still on your PS4, plus a lot seemed to get uploaded to their servers. I already deleted mine.

    I'm still playing the demo to tune the cars I have. It would be nice if the game just unlocked the demo. I can't imagine just the few tracks and stuff in the demo is 43 gig or whatever.

    Forza 7 was almost 70 GB.
    I wish my pre-download for GT Sport would start now so it'll be done by Tuesday LOL.
    I hate all of you and these impressions. I remember buying the original GT and being in love with every part of it. Unfortunately, I suck at racing/driving games.

    Lol.
    No game can ruin F1 for me, but the GT demo actually made me regret buying PC2. I hope I'll be able to find some value from it after more updates.
    Forza is safe though; that is also very impressive and it's got my first car (64 Fairlane) that I painted up and put the same rims on mine had.
    Forza is not necessarily BETTER, but it is safe.

    I know I'm still going to get F1 because I enjoyed the last one so much, but this Gran Turismo just speaks to me on all levels. The driving itself, the online races, music, menus, social features, etc. I haven't had the itch for a racing game like this in a long time.
    I see it downloaded last night. C'mon Tuesday let's go!

    It was nice, I was able to play the demo after servers were disconnected. I never shut off game, and just put my PlayStation into rest mode. I was able to play the demo until I closed it. Then when I tried to open again nothing worked.
    I think I downloaded 59 Gig for the game alone.
    Really enjoyed the demo & will be getting it. Loved how the cars handled & the graphics are beautiful. So many racing games this year which is great to see. Wasn't planning on getting this but the OS forums swayed me yet again. It never fails. :) lol
    It's funny how the appearance of an adapter that lets me use my old DFGT allowed the possibility of me playing both this and PCars2 a lot more than I would have otherwise expected.
    Yeah, I pre-loaded. It should be fun for a more relaxed experience, plus as I said I do like that they're taking steps to clean up the online racing.

    The online component has to work well for me to enjoy the game. It's weird because I prefer online gaming to offline gaming so games like Madden and racing games are a little boring to me unless I am playing against other people.
    The OS hype train is rolling and it's got me a little excited. I've been waiting for a Gran Turismo since I got my PS4 two years ago or so. Got a Best Buy Gift card that's waiting to be used too :)

    Version 1.02 downloading, it's 12.325 GB.

    That's gonna be awkward. Guess I could still play while it's downloading but it's gonna be molasses slow. (12 GB is going to take a few hour minimum).
    Maybe just PCars for tonight.

    Took like 30-45 minutes to download for me.
    This series brings me a lot of nostelgia. Played the heck out of the first few on ps2 and 1. Lost track of the series for awhile then decided last minute and preordered this one so it'll feel fresh for me. Looking forward to get a few races in before work tomorrow!
    Awesome intro. Car porn as per usual.
    Having not finished the update, Arcade mode is the only thing I can play. Expected that.
    (Arcade's a bit of a misnomer as you can set all of the simulation options the game allows for in Custom Race)
    Also, since I cannot connect to the servers until I download the patch, my levels from the beta haven't carried over either, and I can only choose 5 courses (and one is a speedway and 2 are rally courses.). The rest are level locked.

    Damn, taking forever to download this update. What is this anyway? "Oh, here gang! Here's the last quarter of the game we forgot to add to the game download!"??
    Would love to see patch notes.

    I know I was all excited turning on my PS4, heard the message chime only to look up with an update staring at me. Look's like I'll be playing tomorrow unless it's done before bed. :)
    Spent an hour with the game this morning. I really like that online is locked until you watch the etiquette videos. I was hoping my level of 18 from the demo would transfer over but it didn’t , no biggie I’m alread back to 7. Short day at work, hope to be home by 10:00 am to spend the day with this amazing game.
