No online support. Sony stated at the Tokyo Game Show that they have dropped the online component of GT4.  The title is slated for a December 14th...this means that Sony is more interested in getting this game in before the holiday than they are in the online features, one of the primary selling points of this title.  Its a sad world.

I think Burnout 3 just pwned GT4. smile

Meh. Don't give a hoot about the on-line component.

....unless that on-line component was the only thing allowing me to export my photos to the computer. In that case, they can burn in hell.

Though I'll still buy it.

Forza just took a big step forward.  STRIKE Microsoft!  Now is the time to rub their nose in it! Muhahahahaha

Hmmmm...this was a bit part of GT4, something they were selling this year at E3, correct?  Something tells me that if they had dropped it earlier we'd already have the game in our hands.

Now word is they'll have an online GT out next year...better not have to pay $49.99 two times for this kind of thing.  I love the GT series, but right now PGR2 and Forza are looking like the complete package compared to this...maybe that's just me though.

It is tough to compare GT to Burnout...two totally different games.

True, but the idea is two racing games out and one has online and the other doesn't. That seems to be an increasing selling point with games like that which lend themselves more easily to the multiplayer crowd than say Chronicles of Riddick would.

Yeah, it was a big thing. In fact, it was nicely highlighted in our fact sheet for the game until just recently. smile

With all the car tweaks and whatnot this would be a perfect online title. However, I don't own the Network Adaptor (nor will I ever buy one), so I don't really care.

It's Forza's time to shine.

The main thing I saw the GT guys pimping at E3 was that thing where you can print out stills from the game.  Kinda lame and neat at the same time.

Nothing wrong with printing stills. I sure as hell am planning to do so. smile

I'm just wondering how exactly it'll be done... And I hope I'll somehow be able to transfer said images to the computer, without having to buy a USB device of somesort.

As for Forza, I'll wait until the game actually gets released, and I'm able to play it, before I start touting it the next great thing to beat.

I wasn't going to play GT4 online so this doesn't bother me in the least.  It's obviously a huge dissapointment to fans of the series that were looking forward to it, but I am going to buy it none the less.

The real crushing blow has to be to Sony PR.  I can't think of anything to really go head-to-head with the Xbox racers, save a handful of cross-platform racers.

What exactly is the selling point of Sony's online strategy?  I understand the "free" aspect can't be overlooked, but what is their killer app now?

I am sure Forza will pick up 99% of my playtime regardless.
