Best way to start GT Sport or should I?

    With the axe falling on GT6 online I'm thinking of finally getting everything I would need to run Sport. But, is it worth it? I see alot of posts on PSN about having to unlock things in game with millage points and what not. That seems like work. And how much of that do I need to race here with you guys and have fun? Coming back to TPRA is really the only reason I have for getting Sport. I miss it. Also, the online and VR has to be downloaded after you instill the game? What BS is this. Seems almost EA like. Or do I have my facts wrong. That happens and I don't have a PS4 or the game to check them with.
    And that's why I'm here. I only have the funds to run one hobby. There are no RC offroad tracks by me so to race I would need to buy a new onroad car and everything that goes with it. But, I never have to worry about a sever being shut down making the car useless. Or, a PS4 Pro(used is fine for that I would think), GT sport (Disk or Download?) and, wheel.
    Ultimately, about the same price. Unless PSN cost money now? What is this online and season pass stuff all about? I know it isn't for GT (yet) but still. RC maybe a bit cheaper having some of the support equipment already in hand. It is subject to weather however. So, convince me why I should go out and spend money to get back in too GT. I don't want to dump money in to a video game just to have them change everything a year from now and be in the same boat. I ask here because there is no way to get a fair answer on PSN. Not even MasterGT could get away with telling the truth there.

    Sincerely,
    Jessica

    Good to see you back SnakeEyes. For me there is no better form of racing than sim because I have such limited time. There will be a few minor hassle's but it is still worth it for sure. I've found that GT Sport is a great place for intense competition. It is very limited in other areas by comparison to GT's of the past. If you want large numbers of car's and track's then Pcars 2 might be a better choice. GT has gone in a new direction with Sport but I love the challenge it provides. Cost's have gone up for the equipment that you will need but it is still only a fraction of what it takes for other forms of racing. I do think you have to have a PS plus account to go racing online but it's only about 60 bucks for a year. There are devices available that will let older wheels that are not compatible with the PS4 work so that could save you a little money.

    It's good to hear from you Jessica, hope all is well with you.

    As for your questions,

    You do have to reach a Level 30 I believe to unlock everything in Arcade mode. This is not hard to do. Just by completing all of the Campaign Mode you can almost reach that.

    I don't think you have to do anything in order to race in Online Lobbies, apart from having PS+ as SS mentioned. To race in the Sport Mode you need to watch 2 short videos.

    Nope, it's all in the game. The VR part of the game is limited. You against 1 AI in Arcade mode.

    You earn a car every day just by driving 26.2 miles, plus you get a number of cars by completing the Campaign Mode.

    If you have a PS3 wheel it will work on the PS4 using a Drive Hub. Take a look at this thread at the Planet for more info, https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/threads/drive-hub-racing-wheel-converter-works-with-gt-sport.358306/

    At the moment there isn't much for organized events here. I hosted a couple when the game came out, but alot of people seem to be doing the FIA races instead.
