So I was thinking about this the other day, how a huge sales juggernaut like GT can be swept under the rug so easily.
I'm not that knowledgable when it comes to GT so the experts can correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that it really started with GT6 being released exclusively on the PS3 after the PS4 came out - not even a PS4 port was seen in sight.
But despite that, it still sold relatively well, especially when compared to franchises that have so much more money/marketing poured into them.
And now we come to GT Sport which it seems Sony has dropped the ball again (at least in terms of visible marketing, dedicated time in conferences and certain features being barebones -- this what I gathered anyway from the numerous GT threads e.g. no dynamic weather, primarily an online focus, cut back SP etc.
Even at the PS Asia conference there wasn't any significant marketing nor at TGS where they could have at least showed off the weather.
It's just baffling and mind-boggling to me that such a huge franchise with such a big pull and guaranteed commercial success even on a bad entry could be treated this poorly.
I understand the racing market has changed, especially in the US, but still, if feels GT could have maintained its popularity, at least if Sony were just a little less careless with their management of it.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
