Gran Turismo 7’s Kazunori Yamauchi explains the constant online connection that fascinated fans

Kazunori Yamauchi, the author of the Gran Turismo series, explains in detail why Gran Turismo 7 requires an online connection at all times. This makes fans a fuss, but Yamauchi says that data storage and data storage require a connection.

In a new interview with Eurogamer, Yamauchi was asked about the recent announcement of the PlayStation that GT Cafe always requires an online connection.

Yamauchi explained that online requirements are not limited to GT Cafes, but are specific to every aspect of the game except arcade mode. He also touched on why such a requirement is needed in the first place.

“The online connection requirements are not unique to the cafe itself, only to prevent fraud overall from people trying to modify stored data. That’s why we connect online,” Yamauchi said. increase. “The only part of the game that doesn’t require an online connection is arcade mode, which is possible because it doesn’t affect the stored data.”

He went on to say that whenever part of the game deals with data storage, an online connection is required.

In another interview with gtplanetYamauchi added, “The other side is colorful,” he added, referring to the constant online blunder.

“Even when playing offline, the livery data is downloaded from the server,” Yamauchi said. “That is, online connectivity is a significant requirement for the entire game. Some games that don’t require an online connectivity are in arcade mode, because they don’t interact with data at rest and don’t include live games. So you don’t need a network connection. ”

This always-on online connection seems necessary (at least according to Yamauchi), but fans haven’t been happy since the information about the requirements was revealed.

Enterprises have previously overturned the always-online connection requirement — Microsoft’s Xbox One stand is probably the biggest example Such a reversal — perhaps Yamauchi and the other members of the GT7 team would choose to remove the requirement. However, from Yamauchi’s story, it seems necessary for the game.
