Start Your Engines: 'GT5P Not A Significant Advancement Beyond the Gorgeous PS3 Visuals'

"It's 2am and my hand is aching. I keep swapping between using the right thumbstick and the buttons to accelerate and brake, but both are equally painful.

I can't help wondering what the hell I'm doing this for. I've driven more laps in previous Gran Turismo instalments than all other driving games put together, and GT5 Prologue so far doesn't feel like a significant advance beyond the gorgeous PS3 visuals.

Clearly, Gran Turismo has an annoyingly intangible yet very special appeal. I want to stop playing and grumble about how Sony is "forcing" fans to pay $60 for a glorified demo."

lol @the title. The funny thing is GT isn't perfect but it is still the best we have. And the 10 million ppl who buy each installment will tell you the exact same thing. There are still tons of features i hope to see get added into GT as i am hearing GT5 will be the last installment. I am also hoping there will be some DLC for prologue FREE offcourse.

Considering how much polyphony is going to make from this "demo" alone maybe they could give us more incentive to buy prologue e.g. FREE DLC FOR LIFE if you purchase prologue e.t.c.

I still can't wait for this game and F you brits getting it before NA.

Gorgeous Visuals?

Now its "Ok.. the game looks photorealistic... BUT..." LoL. As far as I'm concerned its more than any system can currently do, and the gameplay is awesome.

Yeah that list of what the PS3 cant do keeps getting smaller and smaller. So I expect to see this coming down to the wire. "WHAT SYSTEM HAS BETTER SCREWS INSIDE!" GT5 is photo realistic, Its what PS3 owners and GT fans want. For damage and other treats, theres always GRID an AMAZING multiplatform title.

The quote is such flame bait, no one is falling for it because people are actually reading the article to see the praises. GT isn't perfect, but its the closest thing to Perfection.

Are blogs allowed as news? I know many submit them but are they technically considered news according to the rules on this site?

I'm just sayin.

I thought these kinda blogs are not considered news.

But it can still be considered... It should be known that this is a blog post and thus someones opinion, and we should be able to comment about this person's position on the matter...

It's not news, that's why the poster filed this under "Preview"

So there is nothing wrong with it.

It isn't $60 and this "glorified demo" has more content than most of the other racing games that get released these days. Have fun waiting till next year for the full version while I get to enjoy Prologue this week.
