More info from Kaz Yamauchi on Gran Turismo 7's Always Online Requirement.
 

 
Gran Turismo series creator, Kazunori Yamauchi, has detailed why Gran Turismo 7 will require an always-online connection. While this has fans riled up, Yamauchi says the connection is necessary for save data and livery data.

In a new interview with Eurogamer, Yamauchi was asked about PlayStation's recent announcement that GT Cafe will always require an online connection.

Yamauchi explained that the online requirement isn't specific to just GT Cafe, but every aspect of the game except for its Arcade mode. He also touched on why such a requirement is even necessary in the first place.


"The requirement for the online connection isn't specific to the Cafe per se — it's just to prevent cheating overall from people trying to modify the save data, so that's the reason for the online connection," Yamauchi said. "The only part of the game that doesn't require an online connection is the Arcade mode, because that has no effect on the save data, so that's possible."

He continued and said if a part of the game deals with save data, it will require an always-online connection.

In a separate interview with gtplanet, Yamauchi further touched on the always-online debacle, adding that "another aspect is for the liveries."

"Livery data is downloaded from the servers even when you're playing offline," Yamauchi said. "So, an online connection is something that is needed pretty much throughout the game. One part of the game that doesn't require any online connection is the Arcade mode, because there's no interaction with the save data and there are no liveries involved, so it doesn't require a network connection to do that."

While this always-online connection sounds necessary (at least according to Yamauchi), fans haven't been happy since word about the requirement was revealed.


Companies have reversed always-online connection requirements before — Microsoft's Xbox One stands are probably the biggest example of such a reversal — so perhaps Yamauchi and the rest of the GT7 team will opt to get rid of the requirement. Based on what Yamauchi has said, though, it seems necessary for the game.

Gran Turismo 7 hits PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on March 4, 2022. While waiting for the game, read IGN's interview with Yamauchi about bringing 25 years of history to Gran Turismo 7 and then watch the Gran Turismo 7 PlayStation showcase 2021 trailer.

So every mode but the Arcade mode will require an online connection to function.

I personally don't have an issue with it since I couldn't remember the last time I didn't have my whole house connected to the internet at all times, but I get why some people are upset. The IGN Article has tweets I cut from the article that featured people complaining about it.

I'm ready to play it(And be terrible at it lol) image

Yeah same thing I said personally.

If the internet was out at my house, with all the 'always online' sh*t I got running at the crib...I'm pretty sure I'd be trying to find out why the internet was down more than I would be sitting down for a few laps in a racing game

And I know some folks say "Well what if you travel and have to take your ps5 with you?"...I do travel, a lot, and I can honestly say with how huge the PS5 is I won't be lugging it around any time soon, or that odd shaped a*s Series X either (Plus theres remote play lol)

Its folks on Neogaf, Reddit, and Twitter crying about it but honestly they can go to hell. They talkin bout they not gone buy it, then its gonna sell millions like it always will and they'll be right in the starting bloc of a race

I used to travel with my OG Xbox One in my backpack getting a workout. And that hotel internet made online gaming a no go.

I always love it when the internet goes out at home. My son will text me like it's an emergency and then if it's not on within 30 minutes he just goes to sleep until it's back on. I swear he's personally plugged into it too.
