Nice and blunt but whatever. I thought maybe with the delay and the backlash of lack of career that they may be adding one, but seems like you know better.

So how do you even know if you got into the beta? Just via email? Or do you suddenly get a message on your Playstation to download it or something.

Does the beta work with PSVR?

....I guess they didn't want me.

Probably because it wasn't "perfect" so Kaz didn't want it. This quest for perfection of course doesn't keep them from keeping many other lackluster features.

I was about to say, the series has lost the street cred that its standards are "perfection" since arguably GT4, and definitely GT5. I don't even think that's controversial to say.

I think that's why seeing the improvements here is so satisfying for long-time fans.

Obviously no one can speak for everyone, but GT has been well known for its career mode. Just judging from reactions on places like GTPlanet, lots of people were bummed.

Looks like you can move the camera around the car in chase view. Some people will be excited about that. You can move your head freely in cockpit view too (in GT5 and 6 you could only move from left to right).

I'm on board with online focus and iRacing style leagues and safety rating, fingers crossed it'll be good, but I think Gestault is right, LOTS of people are kinda pissed and genuinely not interested in a GT without a career mode, buying cars, earning stars and special rewards ("genuinely" as in not saying "not buying" and then still getting the game day1). And that's based off of what I'm reading here on GAF in the GT threads and some GT Planet lurking.

Ok, thought it was after some races, only browsed through his stream.
My "definitely an S" was sarcasm, I think you got that, but just to be sure.

That doesn't answer my question. I know EU is later and such.

I'm in the US. I'm asking are all of us USA GAFers without an invite yet SOL? Like if you didn't get your US invite by now you aren't gonna get one?
