YouTube user Ben Phillips has made this neat video, which shows Gran Turismo 6 on PlayStation 3 and Forza 5 on Xbox One running side by side on the same track.
Gran Turismo 6 was released on PlayStation 3 on December 6th, 2013. Forza 5 was an Xbox One launch title and was released on November 22nd, 2013. When it comes to critical reception of both titles, Forza 5 currently sits at a 80 meta score while Gran Turismo is only slightly higher at 81 meta score.
You can check out this Gran Turismo 6 vs Forza 5 video comparison below.
The thing of particular interest here is the stark difference in lighting between both games. The other thing to note is that Gran Turismo 6 is a PlayStation 3 title, which is a current gen hardware, yet the game holds pretty well to a launch title on next generation hardware. Forza 5 has some neat additions of its own like rock-solid 60 fps, which makes for a immersive and smooth gameplay experience along with higher quality specular reflections on road and overall higher quality textures. Gran Turismo 6 also runs at 60 fps but unfortunately there are definitely some frame-rate drops going on, as can be seen in the video.
