Since they're not in the same genre, the decision should be obvious based on the answer to this question: do you prefer sim racing or arcade racing?

Never played either to be honest. I had a friend being over Gt5 once, but that was it. They're both cheap, so maybe I'll pick them both up and see which I prefer.

Default GT6 Update 1.15

Via GTPlanet:



Update 1.15 has just been released as a 589MB update for Gran Turismo 6, and brings with it one of the most radical concept cars the series has seen since the Nike ONE 2022 was introduced in GT4: the Chaparral 2X.

The laser-powered hyper car from the GM Design team was covered in full detail when it was unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show last month, and it’s finally available to everyone in GT6. Vision GT enthusiasts will note that this car, unlike several of the other concepts, features an interior view, which should make it one of the most popular yet in the series.


Another pleasant surprise was included in this update: the Infiniti Vision Gran Turismo concept. A naturally-aspirated 4.5L V8 powers the engine at higher speeds, while a separate electric motor provides low-end torque in slower corners.



The car was created by a young team of automotive designers in Infiniti’s new Beijing design center, and the company apparently has aspirations to build and race an actual version of the car in the future.

Other changes in 1.15 include:

The sorting order of your car list in the [Garage] will now be saved.
A notice will now be sent to the [Messages] inbox of users whom content created within the [Community] area has been removed due to a violation of SEN Terms & Conditions.
Fixed an issue regarding the camber angles of cars shown in the [Favorite Cars] tab within the [My Page] section of the [Community] area not being displayed correctly.

As always, visit our Gran Turismo 6 forum for more analysis and discussion of additional undocumented changes and features which might have worked their way into the game.

I'm having issues trying to get the latest patch installed. It keeps failing saying I need to free up more space (about 960 meg, I think it was) but I have 55 gig free on the drive.

Edit: HA, my bad. I was looking at the total space. I only have around 5 gig left and apparently need 961 meg more so I'll just delete something I guess. I still have the original 60 gig drive in this PS3 (that I use just for driving/racing games).

Midfield Raceway will be returning with day/night cycle and weather. B-spec was also briefly shown on some European GT websites, and then quickly removed.

Via GTPlanet:

GT6 Update 1.16 Now Available: Midfield Raceway, B-Spec, & MINI Vision GT



After an exciting week of teasers, one of the more significant Gran Turismo 6 updates has finally been released: 1.16! Weighing in at 536MB, it includes one of the most-requested and beloved original tracks in the history of the franchise: Midfield Raceway. First introduced in GT2 and last seen in GT4, the track has received a complete refresh, with time-of-day and weather changes.



B-Spec mode also arrives in 1.16, and brings with it a new set of more granular driver controls. The MINI Clubman Vision Gran Turismo car is also now available. Polyphony Digital’s official list of new features is below – be sure to check our GT6 forums as the community uncovers more undocumented changes and tweaks.

Vision Gran Turismo

The “MINI Clubman Vision Gran Turismo” has been released. After the update has been installed, the cars can be purchased from the [Vision GT] option within the [CARS] section in “My Home”. Alternatively, it is also possible to obtain the cars by completing a lap (regardless of the lap time) in the new Seasonal Events, available only for a limited time.

Mid-Field Raceway

The popular original track of the Gran Turismo series makes a comeback with further refinements! This high speed circuit is built on a mountain landscape full of inclines and descents.

It is further made dynamic by the famous grade separated crossing where the direction of the lap circle changes, and its long flat out sections and mid- to high-speed corners.

B-Spec

The event races of Career mode are now compatible with B Spec, where the AI drivers race for the player. You can use B Spec for races you might find difficult to complete such as some of the longer endurance races, or when you just want to watch the race. You can select [B-Spec] from the quick menu displayed before the start of event races.

New Paint Feature

The [Paint] feature is now compatible with custom rear wings. In addition, [Select from previously applied paint color] has been added to the menus inside the Paint feature to make it easier to paint the body and wing in the same color.

Additional cars available to paint

The Mazda LM55 Vision Gran Turismo and the Chevrolet 2X Vision Gran Turismo is now compatible with the body paint feature.

Other

The steering wheel controller force feedback has been weakened for the Red Bull X Series Fan Car.

Default GT6 Update 1.18

Via GTPlanet

The latest update for Gran Turismo 6 has just been released, and it’s an interesting one: bringing with it a new Vision GT car – the second from Volkswagen – and officially confirms GT Academy 2015 with the addition of a new Special Event for this year’s competition (though it’s not yet officially started).



Vision Gran Turismo

The “Volkswagen GTI Supersport Vision Gran Turismo” has been released.

After the update has been installed, the car can be purchased from the [Vision GT] option within the [CARS] section in “My Home”. Alternatively, it is also possible to obtain the car by completing a lap (regardless of the lap time) in the new Seasonal Event, available only for a limited time.

GT Academy 2015

“GT Academy 2015″ has been added to the “Special Events” section. Eligible countries, schedules and other details will follow in a separate notification.

Correction of Issues

We have fixed the issue found after the 1.17 update where the settings of the [Fully Customizable Transmission] were being reset to default after entering a race.

Other

Improved the engine sounds for the Volkswagen GTI Roadster Vision Gran Turismo
Adjusted the deployment timings of the air brake for the Alpine Vision Gran Turismo, Alpine Vision Gran Turismo Race Mode, and Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo, when using the (DUALSHOCK®3) wireless controller.

For the first time this year, I played Gran Turismo. After 1 day, I'm already so sore I'm not sure I can play it again. Doesn't bode well for my chances of golding every event in the Academy like I've done every year.

Default How I Fixed My ver1.19 Installation Error

Ok, maybe some of you knew this remedy all along, but I surely didn't. Long story very short, so my PS3 slim broke and beyond repair; then I went ahead and got myself a brand new PS3 the other day. Pretty much first thing I did was to re-install GT6, yet I kept getting an error in installing the v1.19 file.

What happened: It basically went like this. I inserted the game disc, and it tells me v1.19 is available for download; and I did that. Once completed the GT6 installer began installing the updates, yet it kept failing (or says "an error occurred") no less than 4 times, and I couldn't seem to fix the problem despite RE-downloading the 12Gb worth of update files at least TWICE!!

What I did: I once again download the update files, but STOPPED it at some point (I think at around 8 or 9 out 18 updates). Then I loaded the game disc as if I try to play the game, but WITHOUT internet connection! So the game noticed the "updates" and installed all of them to become v1.09. And then I re-started my PS3 and loaded the game disc once more WITH internet connection. And allowed the rest of update files to download, before I repeated the whole steps again. It took me several hours, but in the end I successfully installed the game (v1.19) on a brand new PS3 based on the first press game disc (v1.00 I think). It was sort of frustrating and time consuming to say the least though. I just wanted to play GT6

Sorry to hear that. I remember a situation like that shortly after the game went live where you had to cancel the update process and boot the game in offline mode. Didn't think it was still an issue.

It was indeed very frustrating, but at least I got it working now... just needed to re-load ALL the car images for my garage view...

Default Update 1.21

Via GTPlanet:

The latest version update for Gran Turismo 6 has gone live and brings with it the final piece of the GT6 puzzle – the Course Maker (or, more specifically, the “Track Path Editor”)!



Update 1.21 weighs in at 185MB, packing in the Course Maker and its four themes: Eifel, Eifel Flat, Andalusia (based on the location of Circuit de la Sierra), and an entirely new location for the series, Death Valley.

Here’s a quick overview of the steps you need to complete to start making tracks:
  • Install the Track Path Editor on your tablet device. It’s available in the Apple App Store (iOS 7+ required) and the Google Play store (Android 4.1+ required). Note that the app may not be available in all regions just yet – if you don’t see it, just keep checking back.
  • Create track data using the Track Path Editor. Using the “Eifel Flat” location, you have the option to import photographs of track maps which you can use to help you trace existing roads and circuits. Raw GPX/KML data can also be imported from compatible GPS devices.
  • Transfer the track you’ve created into Gran Turismo 6.
  • Load the track data using the Track Path Importer.
  • Test drive every section of the track using the Track Path Importer.
  • Save the track as a user-created track.
  • Use the track in Arcade Mode or in the Community area.



Other additions in Update 1.21 include:
  • Penalties have been disabled in “Free Run” mode.
  • With the addition of the “GT6 Track Path Editor”, the maximum length of best lap replays that can be loaded in the Data Logger has been set to 20 minutes.
  • The engine sounds of certain cars have been improved.
  • “GT Academy 2015” has been removed from the [SPECIAL EVENTS] section in accordance to the end of the Online Qualifier period.
In 2007, I bought a PS3 for 4 specific titles; in 2̶0̶1̶4̶ ̶2̶0̶1̶5̶ 2016 the other half of them may finally come out for PS4.
