GOONL!NE: Cologne isn't that far, 'ya know? Kazunouri Yamauchi has gone on record stating that it would be "impossible" to try and fully describe Gran Turismo 5.
"And there’s so much in GT5 that it would be impossible to fully describe it using just a summary,” “If you have a car in GT PSP, then it will be unlocked in GT5.” Thank you Mr. Yamauchi, so about that release date again... =) Surely at gamescom right? no? its a surprise? Tokyo Games Show you say? I'll be looking forward to it.
I hope at the latest its revealed at TGS. I can't wait for this game any longer, I guess its gt5p and gt psp in the mean time.
sounds like it's gonna be... ooo, that's a toughie...
Because once it drops, I will be in Simulator Heaven for many many hours there after. I bought A Chair, Logitech 3xx (w clutch) a surround sound, Big HDtV (bravia) and I am prepared to hone my skills in Granturismo. Its like a feast for Car Enthusiasts.
But Forza3 has awesome background...
Time as I know it ends when this "game" drops.
gt5 represents so many things, hes right there is no description. i can only imagine all the HD-driving i will b doing in many modes.
is a description of the freaking launch date! This is absurd, they should shut up about the game until they can tell us when it's coming out. If it's not out by 2010, they can keep it.
... "I can't fully describe it, so just buy it". I Kid.
Hey Mr. Marbles! It's called "patience." I swear, gaming has ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS tested my patience. Either playing the games or just waiting for them. I can't really understand how people can complain. I didn't even complain as a dang kid waiting for release dates...
if you want to drive a sim, this is THE best racing sim since forever. The audio, the visuals and physics on the gt5 DEMO are above anything else out right now. on the other side of things, if professional mode is too much for you...you can shut it off and just play an arcade racer. so many modes, so many cars, so much production value....GT5 cant come soon enough Thats what makes the gt series the king of racers. Imitation is a form of flattery but brings nothing of substance to push the genre forward(looks at the self proclaimed definitive racer).
I think a great deal of patience is required with Sony, since they almost always release information way to early. How about releasing information about the game when it is ready? Personally, I get sick of hearing about the castle in the sky and when it finally arrives, there is so much hype that frankly no game can live up to. From there, there is just down hill. Happened with KZ2... got hyped into buying it. No where near as good as CoD4.
And werent they also gonna give us trophies too? And ingame music would be nice too. And Idle, stop being your usual Sony sh!t talking self. And not as good as Cod4? Lets not push it. They are about equal.
@1.11 I like that about SONY. Remember LBP? We saw it right when they started working on it, basically. Got to see the game evolve and grow up :P And if you fall for hype trains then that's your own damn fault. Don't believe the media word for word. Reporting news isn't their only job... It's also to get attention.
tired of hearing they could release it in 2009. Just give a release date
Cologne. 9 days at SCEE's presser. You'll get the date there. You have my assurence of it.
I'm not sure where you're getting your info (I'd like to know though, by all means share :)) However, I would have to pretty much agree (though I'm not as clearly confident as Johnny seems to be, like he knows something we don't), but I'd say it will either happen at GamesCom (well most likely that 3 hour press conference the day before) or TGS. Though I'm more leaning towards a release date at that press conference and then TGS having some actual hands-on with the game or something. Either way, I'm really hoping this hits this year. I can't wait for GT5 (just wish I could afford one of these elaborate setups--nice expensive wheel with seat and all that--like some people seem to be willing to pay for one game pretty much).
I think they will announce it at tgs because if Sony announce the slim at gamecon then that itself is big enough. Tgs is bigger than gamecon anways and PD is based in japan as well. There is no reason for sony to drop all their bombs in one go.
But GT makes the best sales in Europe doesn't it? Why NOT announce one of Europe's favorite game's release dates at their convention?
Oh Jesus...does that mean this game is gonna be epic? :o
"Definitive" works too.
It's Gran Turismo. Best racing graphics so far this generation with over 800 cars? Come on now. I think I just soiled my pants talking about it.
Just by watching the trailer, I can already tell the game is going to be beyond epic. I guess that's what Sony meant by "Play Beyond".
Over 800 cars, indeed. This little article actually confirms that in a round-about sort of way. By telling us that unlocking a car in GT PSP also unlocks it in GT5 when you connect the two games, that's confirming that, at the very least, GT5 will have every single car that GT PSP has.
Epic's connotation died with the internet's decision to spam the **** out of it. Epic to me now means "pretty cool." GT5 is waaaaaay beyond that.
can't wait GT5 on PS3!!!! GT5 is go destroy Floprza 3!!!!! Hey xbot, enjoy play Floprza 3 with 2 discs and hot wheel cars!!!!
you play forza 3 with one disc.you download the other one to your HDD you know, kinda like a ps3 install.
lol a fanboy comment gets more agrees than a rational one
forza destroy this crap game.
CAR P0RN!!! ;-P ;-P ;-P
you will unlock in the Ps3 version ..... Does that say anything at all??? So, the game will be out this year for sure, and if iam not at home I will unlock my cars on the go.
That also means that if there was any doubt at all about Lamborghini and Bugatti appearing in GT5, it has just been all washed away.
Is great that Lambo and Bugatti join GT franchise, but where is Porsche? =( Can anyone tell me how is that a franchise like Forza, which is waaaay below the level of the GT franchise, do have Porsche and not GT?
In past GT's Porsche has been represented by RUF. So license or not you will have them in the game. http://www.youtube.com/resu...
GT games have always been epic. you know they are epic when you pop that disc in and watch the intro, thats all it takes XD XD XD http://www.youtube.com/watc...
this is not going to end well
why u always said "this is not going to end well"? what wrong with u? u must murderoll's stupid little brother or sister.
It won't end well (he's talking about 2009): Uncharted 2 Gran Turismo 5 Demon's Souls Ratchet and Clank M.A.G. Boom.
had the MF'N Model T in the game as well as Formula 1 Racers. They're going to throw as many cars & tracks as they can before release. I'm sure it'll have over 1000 cars & 100 Non-Reverse Tracks. GTPSP has 800+ cars all that can be transferred to GT5. Now count all the official Nascar & WRC vehicles not in GTPSP, I presume. I hope Polyphony has finally created they're "encyclopedia" of cars. Day1Buy4Me @poindat GT4 had 50+ Tracks, you sure my estimate is off? Add reverses in GT4 it's 100+ check wikipedia. The back of GT4s case says 100+ because they added the reverses. The wikipedia article does not. GT4 had 51 Tracks to be exact, 102 counting reverses. lol Hell, they could add the Motorcycles & Tracks from Tourist Trophy....
You're setting your expectations a little high there, buddy. EDIT: 50 UNIQUE tracks? Not reverses? I'll load it up right now and count... :D ...Annnnnnnnnd.... damn, you're right. It always seemed like a lot less to me. Oh well, you may continue on with your now-a-bit-more-reasonable expectations!
What an impressive game. I hope they have a collector's edition for us automotive racing fans.
As long as it isn't like Forza's Collector's Edition... Exclusive cars are lame, especially when they are NICE cars.
Forza does that? Gosh that's lame. No racing game should ever have exclusive cars in a CE.
better than flopza greatest racer ever car porn HD real driving simulator
This game is going to be amazing. Best racing game of this generation.
I can describe GT5 Car racing game that looks pretty. Looking forward to it but goddamn tell us a release date.
This game sells 10 million copies each iteration of the series, if that is niche then what the heck is mainstream?
Just about EVERYBODY can relate to driving cars. And just about EVERYBODY buys GT games when they come out. SO.... how do YOU define "niche," exactly?
The REAL Driving Simulator
The TRUE definitive racing game of this generation.
Actually a woman got a car after playing GT but then realised it wasn't the same in the game...LOL. But whatever.
Honesty, bots, how could you pick Forza 3 out of 10 over Gran Turismo 5 out of 5? It doesn't make sense. Edit: Look at this bot below. He's trying the round-about spin. He isn't directly attacking me or the game, but he is generalizing. This is how defenseless bots are against the real driving simulator known as GT5.
you retard. Your all seriously demented. Your all like salesmen for the companies.
And you're like some tele-evangelist who tries to tell everyone else with a disparaging attitude why what they are doing is leading them down the wrong path and such. Everyone knows its a game. This is a gaming website. Now STFU or risk burning in everlasting Hell-ahh!!!
Mooey, Forza gives me the tools to design my virtual dream car the way I want it. Everything from performance to cosmetics. GT doesn`t. That`s simply why I choose forza. Oh, not to mention Forza 3 features drag racing, that sealed the deal for me. Sorry.
"you all seriously demented" haha, says the bot!
@shutupandplay So if GT5 had those features it would be bett,,,,,,, oh wait, it actually does. But I tell you what, a red power ranger in the hood of a honda oddesy would be sick, but you can't do that in GT5 :(
you can have drag racing...I'll take Nascar.
It's probably impossible to describe because there's always so much packed into one GT game, and with the addition of WRC and Nascar, it's shaping up to be one of the biggest Racing Sim's this generation. Still crossing my fingers for a Late 09' release, but I'll gladly take it whenever it's ready for Takeoff.
you got a disagree for that??
I can describe GT5 best racing game this generation and maybe next until GT6.
I hope it comes this year, but them saying they could keep polishing it means they probably have some ideas that havent made it...yet. I've waited too long though and I think I'd rather have it this year then waiting another 3-6 months for more features.
This will be the first racing game I have ever purchased.
A picture is worth 1,000 words... but in this case, you cannot find anything to describe this: http://www.gtpla.net/wp-con...
the scary part is that pic you posted was confirmed to be real time a couple weeks ago by IGN. It look so good I didnt expect these graphics from this generation of consoles. Really outstanding.
that was Polyphony Digital's Vision for GT http://www.youtube.com/watc... The reality http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It's a racing game. There I did the impossible.
