Yeah I agree, I like being forced to try different cars, because you do fall into the trap of just using your favorite cars and events get molded around that.

Looks like you can win quite a few cars with single challenge events in each cup too.

Lol, I'm pretty sure you guys used to hate on GT for forcing you to use vehicles you otherwise wouldn't have driven. :lol:

I think it was just those annoying license tests and the ear destroying tyre sounds. ;)

I've got something like 40 cars already after about 5 hours of in-game driving. There's 3 free cars for each of the 6 championships (the showcase events) and you level up every 4 or 5 races and get the option of a free or discounted car. Then, you're earning about $20k per race which is enough considering that cars range from $30k to $1m. And the $300k per week from tier rewards.

No, we hated on it for fixed path AI, barely any other cars on track with you, no consequential car damage, prebaked reflections, every car handling like a Nissan Skyline, different tiers of quality of car modelling, and a small number of cars overall.

Speaking of which, the GT Sport car roster is depressingly small.

138 cars, that's far less than Forza 5 at launch with 200 and I remember people sledging it because of the low car count.

What's even more depressing is when I loaded it up this morning, servers were down but even in the demo mode it was dropping frames, so they still can't keep the FPS locked. Resolution is 2k, you notice a drop in sharpness and aliasing vs forza 7 @ native 4k.

Lestat, what do you mean by demo mode, referring to replays? They were pretty smooth to me.Why are using 2k res on your 4k tv?

Car count is 162.

Can’t judge gameplay at the moment until it unlocks shortly.

Hold on...Forza 7 was released last week? :?

Microsoft's gaming division truly is run by a bunch of fucking morons! :roll:

It would have been genius for them to instead simultaneously launch both Xbox One X and Forza 7 on the same fucking day!

Now instead all the xbots are already playing Forza 7....so that when the time comes for Xbox One X to launch, there's no brand new game for them to fire up on their shiny new $650 mid-cycle hardware revision gaming console. :roll:

Just the main screen that cycles cars/demos, I saw frames dropped. The 2k option is the prefer performance option which was default selected. The 2k would be native, then checkerboard upscaled to 4k. I have hdr enabled.

The demo unlocks shortly, so I'll have a play tonight.

ok read this.

1800p checkboard or 1080p. 1080p mode offers better performance.

Have you seen any replay footage, you have to just put the controller down for about 5 minutes and eventually one will play.

That eurogamer article is quite old, performance since has improved. Eurogamer will take care of that. Hope they get it to 60fps.

There's a lot of duplicates (i.e. Gr.3 and Gr.4 versions of the same car). Unique cars total about 100.

The fact a performance mode even exists and I saw dropped frames already, don't have my hopes up. Hard to be excited for a 100 car racer that defaults to 1080p on pro hardware for 60fps.

I thought people were sledging it for the tracks reduced from 26 (FM4) to 14 (FM5) not the lack of cars?

Be sure to try 4k mode as well.

New dash is out. Does anyone use a One S with HDR? Just curious if the icon highlight pops out in HDR, kinda looks like it would.

I think they've taken a step backwards with this new dash. Looks rubbish.

I like it too, except the extra button press to find what my friends are actually playing. Otherwise it's very quick and easy to use.

The old dash was in SDR, I'll verify tonight if the new dash runs in HDR.
