Just when I thought the last S License event made me shelve the game for good, they actually add an update of substance for once. I'll get to it once I finish my backlog of games. Looks interesting!

What happens when you try and update the game?

It downloads and installs fine, but when I go into the game it tries to install in the game and it takes forever and eventually says that an error occurred and stops

Quick look and I found this. Not sure if it helps or not.

http://www.gtplanet.net/gt6-installatio ... ed-update/
An alternative solution for certain cases when a message stating “Installation has failed” during the update process involves exiting the game and restarting it several times. Should that fail, users will have to delete GT6’s existing game data from their PS3 and create a new file by restarting the game.

(1) Go to the XMB (Cross media bar) > [GAME] > [GAME DATA (PS3)] and press the X button to enter the menu. (DO NOT DELETE ANY CONTENTS OF [SAVE DATA].)
(2) Select [Gran Turismo 6] and press the △ button.
(3) The option menu will appear. Select “Delete” and press the ○ button.
(4) Go to the XMB (Cross media bar) > [GAME] > [Gran Turismo 6] and press the ○ button to start the game. After the game starts, download and installation of updates will be started.

Deleting the game data will not erase saved game progress, garage content, or accumulated credits, but it will erase all previous update files and saved replay data. Replay data exported from the game and copied to the PS3 or an external drive can be restored once the game data file has been created.


In the comments of that article a guy said that it was an ISP issue and that it may work if you take it to a friends house and download + install the updates.


I had an issue with updating the game a while back. I would start the game and then the update screen would come up, but it would fail. So, without starting the game, I just clicked triangle and "check for update". It downloaded and installed properly and haven't had an issue since. Not sure if that is relevant to your situation though.

So I read that my installation issues have been because I missed more than one update and these new updates are so big they should be installed one at a time. I deleted all of the updates and am in the middle of reinstalling them one at a time to see if I can get this back up and running

I definitely want to try the new course and Midfield and I heard they updated Suzuka

I liked the time attack challenge. Brings back nostalgia from old arcade games

Gran Turismo Sport is coming out in November on PS4.

Supposedly this isn't "Gran Turismo 7", but rather a spinoff game like the prologue games.

https://www.gtplanet.net/gran-turismo-s ... vember-15/
The important takeaways:

- As mentioned, the full retail release is set for November 15, 2016 in North America. The EU release date is November 16, and the UK must wait until November 18.
- The game will feature over 130 cars, including new PD-created race versions of existing models. All cars will feature an interior view, and have been built from scratch for PS4.
- 19 tracks at launch, with 27 variations, including new additions Northern Isle Speedway and Tokyo Expressway.
- Tarmac and rally racing to be featured.
- For the first time in GT history, a livery editor is included!
- 117 Events are available offline.
- In addition to the above, the FIA championship will be a primary feature of the game. A digital licensing feature will be available in 22 countries, a number likely to grow before launch.
- The Nations Cup and Manufacturer Fan Cup first announced at GT Sport’s original reveal will be present.
- GT Sport will feature a renewed Museum mode, last seen in GT5.
- Photomode has received an overhaul with the inclusion of “Scapes“. Hundreds will be available for players to chose from, with no limit on cars included in the shot.
- Photomode will have a 4K output option, much as GT5 and GT6 do.
- A focus on social features fosters an entire community within the game.

I like that they have built all the cars from scratch and we are finally getting a livery editor.

All the environments look really bad IMO. Grass, buildings.
Opinions are my own.

Focus has never really been on environments in the series, though I thought GT 4 & 5 environments were really good for their time.

I like the camera mode, now that I actually know how to use one. Wonder if they'll build off this one and call it GT7 like most games are doing now (releasing half-finished games looking to build on it for years)

Got GT Sport today. Off to a slightly frustrating start though.

First there was the 12gb update that you have to download immediately (Isn't that always fun?). And now the pre-order bonus DLC code isn't working, so no gift cars or 500k credits :cry:


The game itself looks great and the physics are good. I've only driven a few cars, but it seems like the engine sounds have improved also.

So far I've only golded all the beginner level driving school events.


It's very obvious that this game is all about racing cars, not collecting or modifying them. But hopefully they will add a bunch more stuff through DLC like in previous games.

Hmm I might pass on this game or maybe in a couple years when it's on deep discount I'll get it.

It's crazy to think how big of a part this game played in my life and to not want to get this game. This game is the reason why I bought an 04 sti a few years back lol

I guess I can pull out gt5 if I get the urge to play

Yeah, I've been a little underwhelmed by the game so far. Not necessarily because of the game itself, but just because of what the previous games were like.

Without the whole modding aspect it kind of feels like playing arcade mode. I'm getting all this prize money, except I don't have anything that I want to spend it on.

Most of the cars are racing versions and I don't really care about driving them.

My favorite aspect of Gran Turismo games has always been the grinding aspect, where you start with a shitty car, then work your way up until you have a stable of cars to use to complete the various events. Forza pretty much copied GT's simulation mode in the first couple games, but the emphasis shifted towards leveling up, and it eventually got to the point where you could get a hypercar in the first hour of playing. GT4 was probably the last game to have the "true" early-game Simulation Mode experience, as the next two games were pretty generous in terms of credits.

In theory, that's not a bad thing. It feels odd to complain about earning too many credits after playing a game like 2K18, but most racing games on PS4 are missing that sense of progression. A game like Forza 6 is, on paper, everything I could want in a racing game. And yet, I find myself wanting to dig out my PS2 and play Tokyo Xtreme Racer, a terrible racing game that's as addictive as crack. If I liked playing games online, I might appreciate the way racers are designed nowadays, but I don't, and feel like I'm left in the dust because of it.

GT: Sport is a good game. Certainly isn't my cup of tea, but the demo exceeded my expectations. I've been a huge GT fan since playing GT2 as a kid, so I couldn't resist renting it from Redbox today. Unfortunately, the game didn't carry over my progress from the demo like it said it did. Not the end of the world, but that's a couple hours of license tests and challenges to redo. I must say, the physics and graphics are top-notch, though I've never driven a sports car. There are a lot of new courses - while I miss classic original tracks like Grand Valley, Trial Mountain, Midfield, and others, it's refreshing to see new content, whereas Forza 7 literally has one new track.

The car selection leaves something to be desired, but it might force me to buy cars other than nostalgia favorites like the '99 Viper GTS and Ford GT40. However, I've seen some cars that aren't available in the showroom in races, so maybe there's more to unlock here than I thought..

Sport is a different from other games in the series. While I'd prefer Gran Turismo 7, and probably won't buy this until it becomes very cheap, I'm not mad because they made it clear what they were selling. They put out a comprehensive demo that made it clear that the single player experience would be secondary to online play, and that this would largely be a glorified GT: Prologue. They're trying something new, and though it's not really for me, I'm glad they're doing it. If I really want to relive the experience of spending hours racing to save up for a Lotus Esprit, I'll go to my mom's house and dig out my PS2.

I will have this game for the next couple days at least. My PSN name is Lamrock93 if you want to race or whatever.
