It would be nice if SCE actually acknoleges the WIDESPREAD ISSUES thIS game has with older PS3 models. For example, I don’t know anyone with a 60GB PS3 who doesn’t have the console shut-down within 5-20 minutes of play time. I would notmally think this is a hardware issue, but GT6 is the ONE game that has this sort of behaviour.
Don’t believe me? Then please check your own official forums.

I have this game since launch and I have yet to play it in any meaningful way, and I refuse to buy a new PS3 just for one game. I guess I’ll just stick with GT5 even when the servers go off-line. Might as well sell my copy of GT6 since I’m not able to play it anyway…

 

Love these updates GT6 is well and truly keeping me off my PS4, Still looks awesome on PS3 next to these next gen games i can only imagine what GT7 will look and play like.

Looks like Polyphony prefers new content with every update rather than fixing major bugs. Thanks for the new stuff but… why so soon?
You can literally complete the red bull challenges in a bunch of hours!

After that? After that you just race with 15 years old sounds and no clutch/H-pattern gear stick on a G27 while driving standard cars. Not to mention the temporary freeze when someone is entering/exiting the track in an online lobby!

Seriously, prioritize bug fixes/improvements over new content!
I don’t give a damn if there are new vehicles/tracks every month or so in the game when the game ITSELF has so many bugs that is irritating.

PLEASE take a look at this bug report list and try to address them.

Any chance we’ll get to see a Vita GT someday?

£19.99 @ GAME today, knew there was a reason I held off buying this (aside from it seemingly being launched as a WIP). ;)
