Title: Gran Turismo Sport Closed BETA Announcement (Porshe and Interlagos confirmed)
Post by: ethomaz on Mar 09, 2017, 05:07 PM
Quote
Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital Inc.

Hello GT fans!

We are extremely excited at Polyphony to announce the Gran Turismo Sport Closed BETA. BETA participants will get a sneak peek at how the Gran Turismo will pave the future of racing, competing in highly competitive races against other users across the country, and eventually, across the globe.
Quote
The initial phase of the closed BETA, starting on 17th of March, will only be open to selected US PSN IDs.

As with most BETA programs, in order for the development team to capture data in an optimal manner, the sample size needs to be increased gradually and in stages. While we begin to roll out the BETA, we have decided that the time differences across the U.S. are best matched to the development team in Tokyo.

During the initial phase, our servers will be open for users during specific times across the day. We will share these times closer to the BETA launch across our social channels and GT.com.

 Gran Turismo sounds are significantly improved (!) in latest beta - NeoGAF (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1353704)

Quote
Which is kind of weirdly shocking to me! Finally, we're getting some awesome sounding replays. Guess hiring that Forza dev is paying dividends. https://youtu.be/-m2_wjtZfzA (https://youtu.be/-m2_wjtZfzA) Still has some issues and it doesn't sound like all cars have gotten the improved sounds just yet, but this is miles beyond the last beta at expos. Great stuff.dat backfire sound

Maybe I'm missing something but GT Sport to me is the by far worst sounding from those three comparison videos you posted. Also no windshield reflection in GT Sport? Bad!! (no but seriously, hope that's still added later on.)

Well one is real, other what is considered the more accurate for this car in games and the last is GT Sport.

You could be right but it's hard to tell with the music volume at around the same volume as the engine volume.

A game being made by a Japanese studio, supported more by Europe, gets beta access in North America first. Don't try to figure this out.

They said that running the beta in NA first best coincides with the teams working hours for patches and things like that

I'd say that it being easier to roll out a beta in one huge country than lots of more little ones has something to do with it also. I'm not really sure how developers monitor betas though.

I'm surprised how positive this Beta has been received up to this point, over the last year people had been barking about GT everytime it was brought up.
Title: Re: Gran Turismo Sport Closed BETA Announcement
Post by: ethomaz on Mar 26, 2017, 05:22 PM
The Beta is running on US first because they wanted a small sample first... some GAFers even believes the first batch of Beta invades was something low like 100 because only 3-4 streamers could be found in YouTube/Twitch.

The second batch happened and only a small number of GAFers got into... like 5 or less.

The number of streamers playing the game is below 10 yet lol

Some guy in GTPlanet is reporting EU are getting invites.

A new track was added to the Beta too.

Played a bit of time trial this morning before work.

The game UI/menus are something else and possible the best ever in a GT game... it is by cursor like Destiny and pretty easy... it ask you if you want break and steering assist before the race (Forza like feature tha make you run like a turtle).

The graphics are gorgeous and I took a ingame screen (not replay)... I can't talk about anything else because it was only a time trial with few laps... the daily events with others tracks only opens in 10 hours (it is at night every night with different tracks/cars) but you can practice... I just didn't have time.

So far so good.

Sorry. This last week I played one hour of GTS and yesterday when I was playing my first race the power goes down on my city for four hours or more and I ended sleeping lol

Below some comments I send to my friend via WhatsApp.

- Best UI ever in a racing game IMO (via cursor like Destiny but fast and smooth).
- Driving physics looks to be the same than GT6 (that is not bad at all).
- Sound is better than GT6.
- Online races are really well done with schedules and participants... you can train before opening and do your position race before race against others online users in the queue... it works pretty well with the matchmaking... it counts for the ranking and all... it is really focused on eSports.
- The lighting is ultra realistic... I can't wait to see how Pro improves that.
- While there are some 2D trees together with 3D trees the details of the track is out of this world... you can see even people and cars in the boxes walking from long range.

As the BETA begins to increase in size, those who have signed up within the PlayStation Europe forum or received a direct e-mail will be selected to participate in Phase 2 of the closed BETA. Spaces will be limited so, if you don't get into Phase 2, make sure you stay tuned for future BETA activities in the run-up to launch!
I read on twitter they are starting the Phase 2.
