Can Gran Turismo 5 outsell Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec?

Expectations for Polyphony's Gran Turismo 5 for the PlayStation 3 are steadily increasing. Sony is still claiming that the series is THE best racing simulator (that will be) on the market. Can Gran Turismo 5 sell more copies than the best-selling Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec did?

i just started playing gt3 again and i forgot how awsome it was. Also is it true that gt5 will have car damage? or is that just guna be stuff like tires wearing out. if gt5 does get car damage then i hope they do a stunning job as always.

fan since DAY ONE. We can gripe about delays all day about some things, but ((all)) fans of pure & true racing bliss wait for *perfection when it come to GT.

No one's got swagger like Polyphony Digital: The Tradition Continues.

Sarcasm3434d ago

Agreed Madden Raiders.

Hardcore GT Fans know that it's worth waiting for. Even GT4 which seemed like it took a decade to come out, was the best racing sim on PS2.

GT5 will do it again.

Sony just needs to drop the price to $299, so nobody has an excuse of "The PS3 is too expensive, even for GT5"

Gran Turismo 4 was one of the best titles in the series and my personal favourite out of the series and that's saying a lot. The Mercedes-Benz challenge at Nurburgring (full) still haunts me to this day.

Gran Turismo -- for Enlightened Minds Only.

The Gran Turismo series (along with Cruisin' U.S.A...and that game was awesome) got me into driving sims.

I cannot wait for GT5 because I have Prologue and it is SEXY.

I hope they include damage in GT5.

Simon_Brezhnev3434d ago (Edited 3434d ago )

yeah i hope they do include damge i heard rumors that the contracts they have with certain cars they dont want they car to do damage but im hoping they do damage superior then Burnout Paradise

Firstkn1ghT3434d ago

Cruising USA is a driving sim?

ultimolu3433d ago

I didn't say that Cruisin' U.S.A was a sim.

I said that, along with the Gran Turismo series is what got me into driving games.

And Knight, please tell your group that unless they can challenge my comments, then they need to cease and desist with the disagree button because it makes them look foolish!

I agree with you Juuken. It was the GT series that also got me into the driving games - i didn't use the term driving "sim" games as back then it was the only "sim" game i was aware of on a console and the best IMHO on the console market at the time. However the GT series have not changed in the last 5 games and thus are no longer considered a true "sim" when compared to games like Forza 1 & 2.

GT is still an awesome game there is no doubt about it - however the only innovation (and i use the term lightly) is the great use of light effects and reflections (since creating great polished cars isn't really innovative).

Because of this lack of innovation and bringing the series up to the next level is why reviewers are becoming a little bit more harsh when reviewing the game - they are getting tired of the same game over and over - just looking better and better.

I have replied and "challenged" to your comments in the past and as usual you come back with nothing. Just juvenile verbal attacks with nothing that adds to the article or conversation. I pick my battle with people that can actually think and give me a good argument. Your debating skills is as good as Nasim.

Knight...what the hell are you on?

Seriously...what is it?

I'm not so sure if GT5 can outsell GT3, but I do think that it can sell about just as much as GT4 did.

I really hope that GT5 comes out in 2009 and it's really one of the only racing games I'm looking forward too.

Chubear3433d ago

I'm really affraid that it just might not come out this year though. From what I've been hearing, PP are not just adding damage to the cars but rather than just have that as an asthetic, are implementing sim damage modeling which will mean there won't be damage for damage sake but the damage will affect the cars as they would in real life.

Now this is a tricky thing cause you don't want to have gameplay burdened by this (seeing as this IS a video game after all) but also have to make it reasonable believable.

You now PP, they're known rabid perfectionist when in comes to cars and they just won't bring this out 'till it's DONE! I'd imagine sim damage modeling for Online competition, the way they're tryin to implement this and many other things, would be a daunting task.

This is one game I really don't care about waiting years for cause GT ALWAYS delivers in spades.
