WTF is Gran Turismo Sport? Like Gran Turismo, but fun?

EDIT: Watched the trailer. Looks boring. Same ol' boring tracks. I like racing games where I'm racing through cities and you never know what's gonna come up. Fictional cities are fine. For a trailer that claimed to be made by an actual PS4, I'm disappointed that they showed ZERO gameplay footage. Only replays. Also taking photos of my fake car is stupid.

I heard rally racing is in it, since I skipped GT6, this one is mine.

Isn't this just like a multiplayer "prologue"like GT?

I'd rather wait for GT7.

I always considered GT more of an interactive car glossy. If you're not a complete car nut you won't get much enjoyment out of the game since it's as sober and 'sterile' as can be.

Last game I played in the series was GT5 and while I enjoyed it(still absolutely love the car handling in this game) I absolutely loathed the tedious and annoying grind it takes to unlock newer and better cars. Espescially the sports cars take for-fucking-ever to unlock forcing you to replay races over and over. And even then you have to be super selective with the cars you pick since you never have enough credits.

It's really the one thing that put me off buying GT6. The grinding is such a useless and stupid 'addition' to the game. I know you can buy millions of in-store credits with real money but fuck that.

That's the reason you should get GT Sport instead, it looks like there's none of these in the game, you just earn money from races and buy new cars.

However, I got both GT5 and NFS Hot Pursuit, I really enjoy Hot Pursuit way more than GT5.

Oh yeah definitely Hot Pursuit is probably one of my most favorite racing games of all times. Espescially that 1 vs 1 Interceptor mode in multiplayer was freakin awesome. Played that a ton to the point I was winning way more than losing which is a rare thing for me in online multiplayer. Fun times. :p I was kind of disappointed by NFS Rivals since it seemed it wanted to integrate all the various multiplayer modes 'organically' into the game while you were racing which just didn't work out. Similarly as Most Wanted before it the 'open world' structure also didn't work out to generate the kind of high speed thrill rides that were in Hot Pursuit. Long and winding tracks with separate online modes is really what makes an exciting arcade racer. And Hot Pursuit really nailed that.

Currently I'm really enjoying Driveclub on PS4. Espescially after all the patches and dynamic weather system this game has gotten really good. It really hits that sweet spot between an arcade racer and something more akin to GT. Really love the car handling in this game as well and the races are always a lot of fun. The cockpit view in particular is awesome and the way the interior trembles and shakes as you race down a mountain at high speed makes it feel much more like you're 'inside' the car rather than it just being fixed decorum. Also the graphics look particularly nice. Can't really think of another current racing game that looks better than Driveclub.

Too bad Sony apparently closed the studio down. Would have loved to see another racing game by the studio perhaps on PS4 Neo or something.
