One of the biggest omissions in Gran Turismo Sport is the lack of a GT mode in it. Well Polyphony Digital’s Kazunori Yamauchi gave an explanation for it.
Driving UK caught up with Kazunori Yamauchi and he explained some of the reasons why the tradional GT mode is missing in Gran Turismo Sport.
He said: “Twenty years ago, when we did the first Gran Turismo, people knew what happens when you change an air filter; people knew what increased compression ratios do to your car. But the new users don’t have that knowledge anymore because they’re not as interested in the cars, so we’ve simplified that area [of the game] so you can do the exact same thing you were doing in the past, but it’s more user-friendly for people just getting into car“.
Basically it sounds like they simplified the game to make it more accessible. The game also has a small number of cars, but Yamauchi says this is due to them needing to build the cars from the ground up. They didn’t have enough time to put in more cars in time for launch as everything had to be redone on PS4 and PS4 Pro.
