Those people walking around that start to slow down all of a sudden are just suffering from bad internet connections with The Matrix.

Everyone who was foolish to sign up for a Kotaku account should spam their articles with links to this:

Heck, post it on every site you read. These guys are obvious morons. To think, there are probably still xbox fanatics who still think sites like Kotaku aren't out to smear the PS3.... riiight.

Their users are as delusional as those found on Destructoid or vgchartz. The triple jokes of the internet.

Anon1974  +   2013d ago
I did find it a bit suspicious.
I don't know if the video is legitimately slowed down or it's just a disk with a smudge on it, but watch the two videos. One loads in about 25 seconds, Kotaku's link shows something over a minute - and the video is nowhere to be seen on the site that Kotaku claims to have got the video from.

Then watch Kotaku run with the bad news. Oh, it's painfully slow. Let's hope these horrible load times will improve before release. GTFO.

Run the two videos together and watch how much faster the text scrolls on the top of the screen on the bottom video.

Several of us have warned people about Kotaku who have hated Sony since the Home incident. Call it a ridiculous conspiracy theory if you like but facts are stubborn things. The video is doctored.

EDIT: Disagrees from blind people. I guess these morons also think that light travels that slow as well.

Look at those slow motion camera flashes.

Not only is the video doctored but it was doctored by imbeciles and then posted up on Kotaku by an absolute idiot. This type of jackassery should get Kotaku blacklisted - something Sony should have followed through on years ago.

***hated Sony since the Home incident.***

Home incident?
morganfell  +   2013d ago
Before Home was announced Kotaku discovered evidence of Home's existence. Sony asked Kotaku not to release the story because Sony had a large presser planned with a great deal of money committed. Kotaku said no, "It's news and the people have a right to know."

Sony threatened at that point to blacklist Kotaku even sending a letter. Kotaku responded angrily. In the end Sony did not follow through...but Kotaku never forgot this. They have taken every opportunity to downplay Sony positive news and play up any hint of negativity about Sony products.

Kotaku is an site run by a blithering idiot. Had they simply complied Sony would have made the world their oyster. It's amazing jerkwads like Crecente have been in his job as long as he has yet does not possess the slightest inkling of how business relations actually function.

After a long time here at n4g, i am very used to read very quickly the news. I just needed something like 3 sec reading the news title and with just "gt5" "painfully" and "horribly" my brain quickly responded "fanboy" "bias" and "false".

I suppose it's the same for the majority of you.

It's been a long time since Kotaku lost their last inch of credibility. Now with this incident they are a laughable source.

anyone watch G4TV a little show called x-play just showed real footage of GT5 and it was amazing... and I'm not even intrested in buying this game, but it still looked better than anything I've seen.
solidjun5  +   2012d ago
Nike  +   2012d ago
You can look at the video itself (not just the TV of GT5) and see that the frame rate is stuttering. And this happens when you take a, say, 25 fps PAL video and cut it's speed to perhaps 30% of the original (what this essentially does is makes the video longer, spreading a lesser number of frames over a longer duration).

It could also be a problem with the camera used, which seems more likely but Kotaku really should have known better than to run with an off-screen recording for making such an allegation.
DasBunker  +   2013d ago

PirateThom  +   2012d ago
Nope, "high" is right (not saying "long" isn't, but "high" makes more sense in this case).

I'm not talking about the "loading" but the "loading time".

"Loading" isn't quantifiable, so it would be correct to point out that the "loading seems really long".

"Loading time" is quantifiable, so it's correct to say "loading time seems really high".

DarkSniper  +   2013d ago
This would not be surprising. has made several strides to undermine PlayStation®3 during it's climb to glory. But Dark Sniper will not shade away from informing users of the truth.

Gran Turismo 5 is the pinnacle of racing games. No other racing franchise (especially Forza) can hold a candle to the stimulating effect that Gran Turismo brings to users. Dark Sniper has his full faith that Polyphony Digital will not only deliver the best racing game this year, but the best racing game ever made.

With this being said, one can take a quick look at Kotaku's doctored footage to know that someone in their headquarters is in cahoots with Microsoft to ensure that Forza's smoke and mirrors is hidden from the naked eye. Anyone who's had a brief assessment with PlayStation®3 hardware should know that several PS3® titles give you the option to install the game to it's versatile hard drive(which is included in every system). Installing titles to your hard drive reduces loading times significantly and for a title with Gran Turismo's magnitude, it's difficult to believe there is no installation process in this particular game.

The telling factor is this. Even if this falsified video was true, the buyer does not care. The leigons of Gran Turismo fanatics across the world has spoken and they have declared Gran Turismo 5 the definitive racing simulation this generation. There's nothing Kotaku or anyone else can do about this.

oh really? its not fast? well id say 45 seconds is faster than most games.
Nitrowolf2  +   2013d ago
you are going to argue with 45 seconds?
fighting games usually take longer to load and they are not as big as GT5,
most games have roughly 45 second of load time, i think UC2 had that much may be longer (the only one which is the continue or loading a save)
i say that is fast, for a game with this much details and for the best looking with most content racing this gen and past has ever had. These load times are good. The question is, is this with an installation or not.

Also this is Cam footage, which explains the Audio lag
and also even this video has slow downs, its Camera footage what do you expect, so even this video makes load time appear slight longer then what they are

also this video has slow down to, just look at the people how they begin to lag
jesus this is taking with a cam not a capture card from devices like a dazzle or PVR, just a standard camera.
so even this video has slow down but due to the camera, when you compare this to kotaku vid, his has way more choppy then this one
ChronoJoe  +   2012d ago
Well, it's loading the longest, and most detailed track in the game. Laps of that track are what, 10minutes long? Usually a standard race would run 1-2 laps on a track of this length.

Gameplay to loading time ratio is 10-20:1. Which is actually pretty amazing. Wipeout for example takes about 10 seconds to load a track, however in contrast a race only lasts about 1minute 30seconds. 9:1 loadingtime:gameplay ratio.

This is loading that track astoundingly fast.
