    I am so weak. Just preordered from Amazon... I hate myself.

    Never preorder games kids it just encourages them.

    The collision system is strange but seems to work, it took me ages to work it out.. generally if it's not your fault eg someone spins out, then the games allows you to carry one racing (other guys goes transparent) if you cause collision by braking too late you will hit dude and get penalised, at first seemed random to me, but there is method in the madness and think it's s good system.. pretty unique tho 🤔

    Realised that both my DS4s (V1s) R2s weren't able to reach flat out in this due to the handy indicator on the HUD. Apparently the rubber contacts inside wear down after a time, so took them apart and placed a bit of thin card in between the rubber and trigger and now getting full range again.

    Fairly easy to open up although you have to be careful as the top is connected to the bottom by a ribbon cable.

    Also, watch the tiny trigger springs don't ping off. :)

    You can buy a membrane kit on eBay McGeeza if your fix gives out.

    I had a quick half an hour on this last night.

    I was disappointed that Polyphony have stuck with their awful menu system which requires something like 15 button presses to get from a race back to the main menu, and as others have said, it seems a bit thin on content....

    I've really enjoyed the previous GTs (apart from 6 which I didn't get), but something feels off about the handling - the cars feel extremely lightweight, with no real feeling of driving a powerful GT car. There's also something about it which seems vague which makes pushing the car to the edge tough, because there's nothing to indicate where the edge is. It's almost like the car isn't actually touching the tarmac...

    The rally race was also awful as the car had zero lateral grip which meant it felt like driving on ice.

    Maybe I've been spoiled by the more arcade-like gameplay of DriveClub, but I've been left slightly underwhelmed by the demo.

    Still, I might pick it up cheap next year :)

    Ah cheers. I didn't realise they were detachable as I didn't want to mess about with L1/R1. Have you changed the membranes?

    This is going to use vr isn't it? Is that launching later and is it extra? It's tempting to get vr for something like this and skyrim.

    It's included (from day one I believe) but it's not the full game, it's 1v1 racing versus the AI and only on certain tracks. Not ideal, but I'm pretty tempted to get it just for the VR mode.

    Ah well that's really disappointing. As they say on Dragon's Den, I'm out! I'll still get the game though. I'm really enjoying it despite being rubbish at it.

    Well what a load of fucking shite this is. How hard would have been for them to put in some single player stuff of substance?

    I mean theyíve built the entire fucking game. Designed the tracks, cars, and even fixed a lot of long term niggles the series has had, and it looks better than ever. WHY CANT THEY SPEND FIVE GOD DAMN MORE MINUTES DESIGNING SOME CHAMPIONSHIPS AND SHIT!

    This balance of performance (BoP) could do with a tweak unless you can tweak it and I missed it. I was in a lobby race in an Alfa MIto and got left for dead in a straight line by the two Golfs so I don't know if they changed something to have more power and add weight but it didn't seem very fair.

    Everything else has been great. £40-£50 though... Hmm not sure depends on the support it gets and I'll look after Christmas

    Looking at the digital deluxe edition. Is the cars included exclusive cars to that edition or is it just an early unlock.

    Nice touch forcing you to watch videos on how not to be a bad driver and LOOK BAD before allowing you to race.

    @McGeeza I had the same problem with my R2 button. I have a spare replacement membrane thing, happy to send it your way if you want it.

    The lack of vehicle variety and proper offline modes (championships) was really telling.the racing itself is really good and graphically it's a beautiful beautiful game.

    It actually feels like a purchase by default because of the lack of good track based games on PS4. If Forza was multiplatform then GT sport would struggle in my opinion.

    I do like it a lot but I wish we were getting Driveclub 2 instead. (Damn you sony)

    I'd say there's a decent selection of track based games on PS4, between the F1 games, PCars, Assetto Corsa and Driveclub.

    Assetto Corsa and Pcars really need a wheel to get anything out of them and I actually forget about the f1 games, they don't offer much in vehicle variety :-)

    Driveclub has always been an underrated gem. Can't wait to find out what evo are up to next at Codies.

    Iím sold. Hopefully simply will dispatch today. I would be happy to organise a weekly race night as per the PCars one we did, although I have a decent internet connection this time. :)

    So demo's finished.. if you buy it digitally keeping demo on PlayStation does it use said demo or do I have to redownload the game.. ?
    (In other words do I delete demo or not? Looks like it's the whole game, just needs unlocking..🤔;)

    Bit gutted I missed the demo. Shame they didn't leave it up, I used to love GT, could have been tempted. Will probably leave it now.

    They did, but assumed he wasn't serious.
