Play.com are reporting that GT5 orders placed after the 25th of March can not be sent on time - due to the game being completely sold out! As one of the biggest Sony franchises there is, GT5 can only mean good things for the PS3 going forward.
WOW! Wasn't expecting that. Makes me wonder if I should pre-order mine in the US, cuz I was just gonna walk in and purchase.
And GTA comes out on the 28th or 29th. I think I see Sony's GTA prevention strategy. I never knew GT5 was this big. I might have to at least rent it. I was scared of the intense simulation of the game but "The Show 08" is said to be Sim heavy and I love it. Maybe I'll give GT a try...if I can find it for sale anywhere.
no - it comes out on the 27th. This week!
IGN has Prologue coming out on the 15th of April. What game are you talking about coming out this week? Let me clarify, I'm talking about USA and not Europe.
March the 27th here in europe.
Europe is the 27th and US is the 15th of April.
It's very sim. I never could get into the series because it's the complete opposite of every other racer (arcade style). It's a gorgeous looking game, but still no car damage or effects on the environment
i wouldn't call gt an intense simulation.
forza was an intense simulation, thats why it was no fun.
i can't wait for gt5 but just wanted to make the point that while the handling is pretty realistic, i would not call it an intense simulation. i think gt has a perfect balance between realism and fun.
i just ordered a ps3 to play this, can't wait
just try it out and you will see if you like it. For me sim racers > arcade racers. They can be just as fun too. You learn to drive realistically. Anyways i am very surprised that this game got sold out but the good news is, there are still the psn downloads but it still seems to be available at other retailers. PS3 might be able to pass the wii in UK. GT5P is number 1 on amazon uk and GTA4 for ps3 is number 2 both finally surpassing wii fit sales. I am surprised EU is embracing the game so well considering it is only a prologue. LOL @bumnut GT5 is still more sim than forza to me. But i haven't really settled in to play forza well enough. I had forza around the time prologue JP demo dropped and i played the demo more than forza 2. lol
im not sure why i got disagrees for my comment.
i love the game, i just said that the driving is not super realistic.
id hate to be in a car with one of the guys that disagreed with me.
if you think real cars drive the same as gt cars you are in for a shock.
Wow! Goooood thing I ordered mine yesterday then, haha! Els eI would have to shell out another €13 ($21) to get it here.
seeing as GT1 sold over 10MILLION copies world wide as of 2007.
Note that i didnt click on disagree.
But, if you were talking about GT4, i agree, It was not as sim as we would believe.
But obviuosly, you havent played GT5P on Simulation mode.
Buy it if you like GT series. I've played and beat GT1,2,3,4 and it's nothing like Need for Speed or any other racing game.
Yeah - we were stunned too!
I wonder what this means for the GT5 Bundle Pack?
that is probably going to be sold out one day one. How much bundle didn't Sony shipped? 500K or so?
holy crap. and its only a prologue. many are gonna have to snag it digitally.
With this, then GTA, then HAZE, then MGS4... we're in for an AMAZING summer on PS3
I literally just felt a chill down my spine when I read that release sequence. This might be the first summer I'll be in more than out.
Yeah... and we've got Home, and Wipeout at some point... then LittleBigPlanet, Resistance... and Motorstorm 2.
Year of the PS3 - confirmed!
of how many think Sony's 08 release list makes microsucks 07 "perfect storm" look like a spring shower.....lol
thats awesome! sony needs to ship more copies me thinks. guessing this is only in UK/euro as its play.com
just remembered i preordered this off play like two weeks ago so pretty lucky. i reckon its probably because they do it for the cheapest £17.99. its an offer you cant refuse!
The FUTURE is Bright, The FUTURE is PS3!;-P
(Oh dear im going to get sued by Orange for using there slogan!) ;-D
In your face you Forza and PGR fanboys! A demo can beat your game. Just think what will happen when GT5 comes out. It demolish your crappy franchises.
i ordered one from play.com and another from GAME.
I really hope i will get one on time.
if your ordered it from GAME.CO.UK, you will get it on launch for sure, and in most cases, you get it the day before its launched
damn, that's crazy. i'm picking this up for sure.
I didn't realize that so many would rush out to spend so much money on a glorified demo. Hope you enjoy it though. I'll get to play online with all of you when the full game is released.
here in EU we dont call it demo, cos it aint.
Japanese release a demo last year for the limited time only.
I wn't call it a demo...and plus its half the price(less) of a full game ! with enough tracks and cars to make it worth the money. Well you be missing out :)
60 cars is no demo. Besides its worth it for the Ferrari F1 alone. They must be doing something right, it looks like it should outsell Forza in s day.
Find me a DEMO with 60 cars, 5+ tracks, and online play and leader boards. Then we can call this a demo. If you cannot, then STFU
LOL!!! the roster for EU/UK and NA stands at 71 cars, GTTV, HOME support , Online 16 player races and GT events, 12 tracks total, 5 with reversed and 1 with 2 variations, and leather boards and online chat and messenging. Thats no demo, this is a brief and great preview of the full game save for 1/10th the car selection and 1/2 the tracks total. Forza cant even sneeze at this "DEMO"... This Game runs at 60fps and 1080p..... the only other demo i know runs at that resolution was Ninja gainden Sigma LOL!!! and probably RIIIIIIIIIDGE RAAAAAAACEEEEEER!!!!! dont call it a demo, it's a Prologue of a full game just save for cars and and tracks

Now that's a list. I know the majority of those games are definitely quality titles and new ones to look forward to. To note above, you forgot Star Ocean 4 and Kingdom Hearts 3
i will add those 2 aswell the bigger the list, the sadder the bots
...of unannounced, and unproven games. Fail. :)
GOD I LOVE MY PS3!!! ;-P
That was typing a big ass list of games, why would you do that, is it to make people who own an xbox 360 to say "oh no, i have bought the wrong console", what the fcuk has this list got to do the gt5 demo? im sure the "xbots" could type a big ass list a lot longer than this.
sorry timmy but i have to point out the fact you wrote "gta5 demo" sorry i know you've got GTA on you mind who has'nt!
timmy Shadow Man did type up a list of 360 games and it failed in comparison. Most likely he'll drop his list when he sees the PS3's exclusives line-up lol he makes me laugh I'm addicted to N4G
I pre-ordered mine on play.com yesterday... thank god
I cancelled mine this morning because I'm getting it from somewhere else tomorrow. If that store runs out of copies, I'll be screwed.
That sucks if your store gets sold out..LOL I'm in the US, and with news like this, canceling my preorder is just not an option.
i so cant wait to get this game:D:Dnever played a GT game before:S so thisll be my first one and itll be a demo let alone the full game lool
this demo will make up for all the costs for the production cost of the actuall game:D
sigh, if you had had a prologue before you'd know they're much more than just demos.
But with the production cost remark, your probably 100% spot on.
with sales like these i think sony's looking at a profit. great that would only mean the full game will be magical, just imagine weather effects, car damage and perhaps a better attention to detail to the backgrounds. not to mention +600 cars and +40 tracks, I'll be in a drivers heaven.
Douche, there are other "prologues"? I thought it was just a nice title they gave this release as a "taste of things to come" I didnt realize there were prologues.
Lucky i pre-ordered mine last week on play.com, hope it arives on time
Wow...you PS3 gamers are suckers. 360 demos are all FREE. :)
ok, do i want to pay 40 quids for subscribing to xbox live for a year?
+It's MORE than a demo! ;-D Sad Slaves
i thought only gold members could download demos(im not sure abt this could someone confirm it 4 me)
LIVE only costs $$ to play MP games.
i said i wasnt sure n asked u to confirm anyway i never heard of a demo with 60+ cars 12 tracks and 16 player online. this is more than most of the full games n it only costs half the price so i think its worth every penny
You got to pay? to play MP games on line!! :D
Thats idiotic i think!! :D :D :D
LOL Boasting that you pay to play MP doesn't really look smart to people that get it for free lol.
find me a demo with 60 cards, 5+ tracks, online play and leader boards.
If you cannot, then I think you should STFU, and get the F**k out
you mean you "PAY" to play MP games... gosh! i've never heard of that term. q:
That would be one of your tiny 150mb downloads LOL demos are 2/3 cars 1/2 tracks limited on line not 71 cars 6 tracks f/r its own tv channel online races 16 players and when GT5 appears the Top Gear track!!!!!!
If everyone else wouldnt mind waiting till friday to download theirs, so i get a nice download speed on thursday, that'll be appreciated chaps :)
Honestly dont believe its sold out.... what happened to "im not paying for a demo!!!"
when does this come out on blu ray here in the uk?
I think you are correct about it coming out on Friday. :)
Isn't Bu-Ray out on Friday, PSN Thursday?
yep your right, although Play.com normally deliver pre-ordered games a day early, they have done with all my previuos grand theft auto games
@mr_showtime112. Same with me, they always send games so they get here a day early from play.com, and a few other cheap sites do aswell
the lack of quality titles the ps3 has at this moment in time when a "demo" (i will use this term losely as although its not a full game its a very large demo)sell out, personally i dont see the fastination of racing games, they are the most boring games ever made
