Lockon  +   782d ago

Lol NFS:S2 is better?

This is where my face and hands come together in utter disgust lol.

NFS: S2 hasn't even broke 1 million COMBINE. That's how shitty E.A and the NFS franchise is.

Ughh No Way! Important things like customizing the setup for a wheel are overly complicated. Auto shift as default...Really!

Hopefully includes all the patches, otherwise you'll be waiting a day for them to download and install.

Why wouldn't it?? You wasted your one bubble on that comment?!
sashimi  +   782d ago

Finally! Its nice to see Sony giving the West the all the GT games along with the rest of the World. GT4 had so many versions....the west got 1.

£20 is a steal for such a great game and all the dlc.
WeskerChildReborned  +   782d ago
Yea, i would definitely check it out for that price.
Ducky  +   782d ago
Kind of odd for them to release an XL-edition and then go with another version. =/
Furesis  +   782d ago
well where i live there was no xl edition so there's that and i'm definitely going to get this one it's going to be my first gran turismo game i ever bought :)

btw do they still release dlc for this game?
JKelloggs  +   782d ago
Glad I didn't buy any DLC, might have to get this version
josephayal  +   782d ago
With all %100 DLC inside the disc (no download)
and $39.99 usd mmmmm add another 2 million copies in the record
level 360  +   782d ago
Sure will get this since I didn't buy any of those DLC packs at the PS Store.
wishingW3L  +   782d ago
But t what happened with the GT5 XL Edition? It came out just a couple of months ago and it already has all the patches and DLC....
Baka-akaB  +   782d ago
Yeah but they keep adding and adding stuff . The Xl wouldnt be enough
yewles1  +   782d ago
Since EU didn't get XL, this seems to be EU exclusive, considering the popularity of GT Academy and all.
Furesis  +   782d ago
you might be right because i didn't see anything on the us playstation blog about this only in eu blog
SavageFlamingo  +   782d ago
Hmm...time to dig my Logitech wheel out of the closet.
Ziggyvertang  +   781d ago
Well as i already have GT5 i dont see the point in getting this as the game boost's over 600 cars and over 1000 total with the different versions of the same car.

The car packs are call in all but £20 for a extra 8 cars more or less and a few more tracks seems abit steap to me. nah i still got alot of cars to get in the game now 8 cars isnt going to interest me.

Going to wait for GT6 which needs alot of improvement.
-Improved game Engine with all car models being up to a PS3 level
-Better track side details
-Better Damage on all cars
-More rallying and snow races
-Be able to participate in real world series like DTM and world touring cars etc and do a season with a team
-Have a auction house and buy cars from real players
-Have greater tuning options like engine swaps, putting in 4x4 drive and more turbos and more brake options etc,
-Porsche
-More manufactures, Noble, ascari etc
-Moke your car more personal. alot more wheels, wrings and body kits options that can be fitted to ALL CARS!!
-Design your own paint scheme (like forza yes)
-NO NASTY JAZZ LIFT MUSIC

If they get all of this sorted i think it will be the best racing game ever made, ATM i think forza is a better game just because of the amount of options they give you and they make it more social. BUT always going to be a GT fan have had them all just want to see them in their prime again

Also not everything has to be a rolling start. what about alot more grid starts and even qualifying after all it is GTX the REAL DRIVING SIMULATOR and a race calender showing you all the races you have to participate in if your signed up to a team. then if you win and your the champion other teams might offer you contracts and you can play the season again but as a champion fighting to keep if from the other drivers. this will offer hugh reply for me

Also if your reducing the weight of the car by taking out what you don't need i want to see it. like how the dashboard gets all of the leather and metal taken out and is now bare and how the steering wheel gets replaced with a racing one.

Its just strange how you can turn a care to the maximum and it doesn't even look like its changed inside. it still looks like something you pick the kids up in after school
