Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed that a "major update" is coming for Gran Turismo 5: Prologue later this year, which will add long-promised car damage and extra community features.
It appears GT5p might end up being the best £20 i spend this year.
This would obviously also hint at a 2009 release for the full GT5.
i hate to break it to you. but if you think you'll only spend 20 pounds till the rest of 2008 then you're mistaken. somewhere along the line we'll have to pay for the extra content.
You might be right there dude, but honestly, I don't think they will charge us. The extra content might help to encourage people would didnt think the current Prologue is worth the cash to re-evaluate it and maybe make the purchase.
The more people that they can get playing prologue, the more they are likely to sell when the full GT is released.
I don`t think that`s what he was saying.....
He`s just happy he can get it for $20, for $20 whats the disc/DL is great. Battlefield: Bad Company should be $20. (i don`t know how to do pounds) -_-
lol....for once i hope that i'm wrong and you're both right.
Everything have DLC now days. You want more maps on COD4, Halo3? PAY? You want GTA4 best version? You will have to pay extra for it.
Yamuchi stated in an interview that he wanted little to no other transactions outside the purchase of Prologue from now to the release of the full GT5.
There has already been an update to GT5P that added over 30 vehicles and a new course, and it was free. And he calls this an "update," not DLC. Updates are free. Look at Warhawk, that has had numerous updates that have added features to the game. I'm not saying GT5P won't have any downloadable content (I.E. stuff you pay for), because Warhawk has that too, but the major updates to the game are free, you just have to pay for the new maps. I get the impression that this update will be free, with the car damage and stuff. It'd be moronic to pay extra money just so the cars look damaged when you wreck them. It'll be free, I'm sure of it.
Also, GT5P has tons of new content all the time, with the Top Gear channel which is consistently updated so you can have tons of new content about real life cars and driving and stuff.
let the critics be silenced now, they have nothing else to complain about :P
this isn't really surprising for me, i have been following his ramblings on damage for a while. glad to know it will come this yr:). Hopefully we get a track or 2 or maybe a couple of tracks as well via update. @killertrap they already said they don't want to charge anyone for any updates. 40 bucks is a harsh price and they know it. The producer for the american version said it in an interview.
dont forget they r sony not MS!!!
GT5p is basically a beta test for the full GT, they've stated this a number of times, so expect more features to be added for free as they work toward the full build release.
They are still gonna complain that the tire noise (screeching) is the same as before.
Im still buying it .. Cant wait . But i must admit the tire noise(screeching) and the weird"wind wave(Ouuuuiiiiiiiiiiiiiishhhhh h)" noise when you hit the sand trap is very anoying and needs some work.
Hey can anyone answer a question, how many gigs is GT5:P?
Not sure. You need a 5GB install for the disc version and the uk store comes in with about 1.8GB however i hear there is a 1.5GB update untop of that.
yea im looking forward to this game its gonna own big time
yea its class great detail brill.. starts of slow till you get faster powered cars then wow this is what racings about great best out there....Loving it
I'd seen a few pretty videos on the net.
I'd heard it was a Prologue.
But I went on Youtube and saw it in action and holy macaroons it looks great. I looked at a Froza Comaprison which I don't care about, but I do prefer the 3rd person dirving to 1st person, and the richsness of the paintwork, and the glow of the lights.
I was blown away.
finally gt5 will have damage
GOOD!;) That will shut up the boring moaning xBox Lemmings!!! ;-D
this is a megaton. BOom!
that the cars dont look good when they are damaged??? j/k
Sadly they will still brag until the day the damage update actually arrives.
"the game sucks because is not on 360" or something stupid like that
now they cant saying nothing about this game cause it has damage and alot of cars and tracks and tuning ups :) so this game is full perfect now
Sorry, for me is allready full perfect!!!! OK, I WANT DAMAGE!!! Is a great thing to the game, and I was begging for this sooner or later!! But, this guys who talk about "damage", they just want a excuse of lack of realism (as their "similar" games are realistic as this one, not even close!) to bash down the spectacular game that it is, knowing that they will never have a game like this in their stupid consoles!!!!
Did you even read the article?
@ Snukadaman It hurts does`t it? When there`s nothing you can say it`s so hard to find an argument. But if it makes you feel any better yes, it is coming later this year.
why does it hurt..even if i owned a ps3 I would steer far away from this demo...it would hurt someone who cared..this guy was saying the game is "full perfect"..and its far from it...if it had damage from the start then it would be the perfect demo. @caligamer..do you hit up the morons that dont own xbox games and biatch about them...you dont huh...im in long beach..you want too come shut me up? Its my opinion on this game..you can call it trolling but you think I dont have my opinions on xbox games your wrong. I do care about the game..in fact..if the ps3 was the be all console it was hyped up too be I would own one as we speak...did you even think of that.
Weak troll, very weak. You really should just STFU, your beginning to look like more of an idiot if that is even possible. If you care so little for this game then why are you on every thread related to it? Quit b!tchin and man up.
So because others do it you also need to? What a lame excuse. Face the FACT, you want this game and it eats you up inside that you can't have it. I couldn't care less about any game on the 360 so I generally don't comment, if I did I would. Your just a closet GT5P lover, as I said, man up b!tch. All that ramblin, all tender because of hype, didn't see you complaining when Halo 3 was hyped till no end and came out with graphics that couldn't hold up to 3rd party devs and gameplay that while entertaining brought nothing new to the table that we haven't seen before. Save your silly ass logic for someone else fool. LOL, still mad because Sony tried to hype their console. Your probably one of those fools that resents his father for not taking him fishing when he was younger and holds onto that sh!t. Get over it bro, don't believe everything you read and use some common sense sometimes. I swear, some fools are so gullible.
cant shut me up so you decide too try and counter huh...well for one thing..a game with no damage and a couple of tracks and cars are not going too get me excited...people who think gta4 should be a playstation exclusive because they think the franchise started on the playstation are the sort of people who want gtp...I am quite happy playing cod4 right now...your dime store psychology is quite entertaining...too bad you aint man enough too shut me up im sure that would also be quite entertaining "LOL, still mad because Sony tried to hype their console" so you agree sony tried too hype their console..you own a ps3 right..and you have the nerve too call someone else gullible when you cant even get a decent multiplatform game to run well on the ps3...and you sit here and complain when someone who has their eyes open and aint falling for the bullsheit wants too comment on the state of that certain console...face it..everyday another story comes across these pages you kick yourself and wonder when developers will get it right...its been more then a year and some of us are still waiting. oh by the way...halo 3 sucked..the only thing that saved it for me was multi player..I have said this when I first got the game and passed it.
You are an angry SOB, funny stuff. Anyway I will skip over all the crap you posted at the beginning as you just go off about some nonsense that wasn't even in my post about GTA4 or some such crap. The difference with me is that I chose Sony based on past performance, not out of some sad sense of being let down by a company that has to sell a product. I have owned all the PS systems and they have never let me down, most of my fondest gaming memories are with my PS systems, the product is obviously quality and they obviously know what they are doing as a company. It's cool if you like MS, it's your money, but I am not impressed by one year lead, I look for the long term and it is a safe statement that MS really didn't have the long term in mind when they designed the 360. I have 10+ years to justify my support of Sony buddy, what do you have? A lead because they launched early that is quickly eroding, hardware reliability issues that are unprecedented in the industry, and being outsold in 2007 even with the heavy hitters. Yea, your eyes are sure open, no one can pull one over on you, you're just too sharp, ROFL. Enough with the hype talk, you sound like the same jackass that goes online and sees an advertisement for male enhancement and buys 18 tubes and gets mad when he doesn't see any results. It's called marketing and you take EVERYTHING with a grain of salt. Sony might have hyped (MS has done that too), but MS denies at the expense of their customers so MS is no saint. What is funny is that many of the statements that Sony made were in reference to things that would be theoretically possible, but you have the mentality that is prevalent this generation, and that is wanting everything now, and that shows a fundamental flaw in your understanding of the progression of technology or R&D. FYI, the first year 360 owners were waiting for quite a lot, and they didn't have nearly the amount of good games that the PS3 had it's first year, remember that when you compare your precious XBOX to a console that came out a year later. You are a joke man, but you have made me and my girlfriend smile so thank you for being such a fool for our amusement. Take it easy. Your last bubble, better make it good, I'm not holding my breath tho. LOL.
"Yamuchi confirms damage....Again and Again and Again"
"Yamuchi Tells You To STFU, It`s Coming"
I like the 2nd one better.
"Again and Again and Again"
I havent seen/heard/read anywhere previously that he said damage will be in Prologue. I think perhaps your confusing this with the Full GT having damaged confirmed several times.
edit: Dora, I watched that video interview (rediculous voice over), and if I remember correctly the question was referring to GT5, something along the lines of "can we expect to see damage in GT5?"
Either way, we're getting it and I'm stoked, cant wait for the update, I'm gonna jump in my F40 in Daytona, turn that sucker around and go head on at some poor NPC at 200mph! CARNAGE!
but i`m pretty sure i`ve heard multiple times, the latest was last week in the video interview with Kaz when they over dubbed a "red neck" voice over his as the translation.
well actually they never confirmed it till now they allways stated that its possible but they cant tell yet couse they dont know how the car manufactures will respond to it with giving them the license to destruct the cars.
I genuinely do hope the damage will rival that of Burnout, in a realistic way.
I want to actually be scared to crash with soemthing. Cus my beauitful car will be mashed up. Or my beauitful body for that matter.
I wonder what all the haters will say now. Probably complain about the PSN version not having a manual, or how the analog stick isn't firm enough. All in all it should be interesting.
don't worry about the haters. to their credit, they always find something to complain about.
well it's always easier to be negative than positive, plus, it generally gets you more attention which is exactly what they're looking for.
Dont get me wrong, I have nothing against criticism, just as long as it's constructive and relative.
The game hasn't even been released yet in Canada, and their already planning to add damage modelling, and better the online interface. This just makes me want the game that much more. Damnit, I can't wait, I want it NOW!
I don't know who's disagreeing with my statement, but I'm just saying this news just upped my need for this game.
But, but, but...its a demo
i'll happily take my copy of this 'demo' and have a great time. This announced update will only add to that.
There are people who still consider this a demo ? Damn.
unfortunatly yea. When I preorderd it from gamestop the guy was trying to explain 'you know its only a demo, its a waste' So i had to inform him of the ammout of content this so called 'demo' had.
Remember people, these guys at PD are perfectionist. When they include damamge physics, they will do it properly. Not half-a$sed.
Just dont hurt my ruf porsche
gt5 will be on the top
I'm thinking of getting the logitech G25 steering wheel when I pick up prologue. Can anyone tell me, is it worth the $300.00 for this game?
Thanks fishy, I am a huge fan of driving games(not all though). I guess it just comes with the territory, I've worked in the automotive industry for 16yrs. now. Your input is always welcomed.
Yes and No. If your buying it purely for prologue, i'd say no, get the cheaper wheel. But if your a fan of driving games definetly YES, the G25 is fantastic and worth every penny if you get the use out of it, remember pretty much all future driving games will support it.
Basically, you should never need to buy another wheel, so if you see yourself playing more driving games in the future go get it. It wont disappoint.
I got a G25 and its my favorite gaming device but if you buy only for gt5 its a lot of money.
Im into Race sim on pc and i have many use for my g25 i personnaly wouldnt buy only for my ps3.
On the ps3
I played Gt-Hd demo with the g25 and the Japanese demo of gt5p and it was a lot of fun.
If you buy that wheel then get GRID too and DIRT . Get some use out of it.
And when buy it let me know and add me to your psn list we will race :)
Thank you for your response. I look forward to racing you online. You'll have to wait until the 15th though(release date in canada). Just look for me online, PSN id is the same as my n4g tag.
The same people who pay to play online.
Car damage! The only important thing missing from GT in my opinion. Yes.
i agree with you e-ray car was the only thing that was missing from the gt series
i don't know why people are not mentioning weather. i'd love to see how rain would look in GT this gen. especially if you're driving with the in car view(i know it's called kockpit but the first word is censored).
Well, if anybody remembers GT2, it had a wet track. Who knows, maybe weather effects are in the pipeline, as is damage. But I agree, after damage modeling, weather effects should come next. And if anybody can pull it off, it's polyphony.
i read someplace (I dont have the source) that there was going to be dynamic weather in GT5. Can someone confirm this?
If you ever played GTR2 on pc.. in a night race with rain, in full sim mode. Youll know why weather effect is needed.
Now that you say that... I think I've saw it somewhere.
It was in an article where a PD developer said we would have damage modeling back last year. This was the first time we heard that damage would be included but it was still unconfirmed by PD.
In the article he also claimed dynamic weather would be included. This gives possible credibility to the dynamic weather. I still cant find the dang story though.
I don't think you realize that Gran Turismo is suppose to simulate real race tracks with actual events. So you're not going to see snow with these cars. Do you ever see nascars driving in the snow? I do think some weather effects can be in their like rain, maybe snow falling only (depending on the place)...etc. Something that can be unexpected when setting up an even in real life.
well i just cant wait for prologue and i really doubt it will hold me over til the full game comes out oh well GT4 is just $20 that will help
man o man I cant wait to see those beautiful machines get destroyed. I can guarantee you the boys at PD will make car damage spot on. GT5 is quickly becoming the best Racing game ever conceived.
1080p, 60 frames per second, and now car damage? So what do all the Forza addicts have to say now?
That's what I thought.
customization! customization is much more important then realistic car physics, graphics, and hundreds upon hundreds of cars.
*sigh*...comments like that are really not necessary.
Easy question i enjoy racing games and i dont care what one got over the other .
Unlike some people.
I play games because there fun not because it better then another game lol.
Wow I have to say that is pretty surprising. Personally I did not expect to see car damage until the final release. I suppose it will just keep getting better and better!
