A new gameplay video from the Gran Turismo 5 demo.
i still can't work out how they squeezed the demo in just 220mb
Just bare bones really, one track, two cars, a few mp3 toons..........
Yeah, it's very basic. Appears to be using a bit downgraded/compressed Prologue assets. Even people on tribunes appear to be exchanged by 2D animations. You can't fit much in 220megs you know.
GT5 is all cars and tracks 220 mb sounds reasonable there's no physics and real damage and other stuff hope the final version have them but the grafix is mind blowing EDIT : wait there's no Tire Deformations :(
LOL @ Above.. does anybody else finds ironic how somebody with the name of "Bungie" has the guts to criticise the technical aspects of a game (altough i think everybody here and their dogs know hes trolling).. when certain game developed by bungie (not gonna say the name :P) is really subpar technically speaking..
Why don't you go watch again and keep admiring the Trailer of Reach like if its the second coming of god and let us, PS3 owners alone with our Amazing Variety of games On-Topic Its just 220mb, but that's the whole idea for the GT Academy Demo and like everything PD make is near to perfect, for sure
The speed of the game seems faster which is a plus. Car models look amazing inside and out. The only thing I want to see are the features outside of racing, what car damage will look like, online, and other tracks (want some more scenery). 2010 can't come soon enough.
Bungie, I don't know why you would think someone would take your comments seriously.
I have to disagree with you for once, the gameplay graphics are lackluster to put it nicely. No wonder there are no GT fans in here, this is shameful. I read in almost every preview that the replays and the gameplay visuals are clearly different quality almost saying WTF!. Only the die hard fans are coming in here with their fictitious enthusiasm and praise. No wonder the game is late to release. I can't believe I disagree with you and no doubt some of your disagrees are from people that can't believe you said that and not just people that hate you or disagree with your physics comments. By the way the game's physics look like average multi platform racers, even some from last generation. This is why PS3 fans keep trying to use how compressed the demo is, as an excuse. That Nissan was moving more loosely than a Race One(R1) class car in other Sims(twitchy with no weight)That Nissan is suppose to have stiff(er) handling. I can't make that Nissan move like that in the game I play.
Its an old build and really stripped out, all textures are compressed and there is no damage.
Trolling in a ps3 article when he doesn't even own a ps3. Who's the troll now b!tch? Atleast I own all consoles, you only have eyes for 360 and you know it. We all know gt5 looks amazing, we have seen other vids not from this demo. You prolly think forza 3 looks better dnt ya?
We Won attack the difference in graphic between gameplay and replay? Like Forza doesnt insert a higher poly count, more detailed car into its replays, its not even the same car model you drive, unlike GT. And then attacks the physics? Fail again, we've all see the Forza videos of cars balancing on their noses for 30 seconds, or clipping through walls, rolling when they touch a bit of road edging on a corner, or any of the other ridiculous Forza physics glitches I've never even seen in car games going back to Pole Position. Man, what a loser.
yeahh 220mb is.. littlee..
Its funny to see so many xboxers here, didn't they have some kind of racer come out latley. I think it was PGR3. Anways I thought they were all about playing their tripple b games and not having time to comment.
The GT Academy Demo is more definitive than Forza 3.
This is what they are going to try and top Forza with? Wow, I've seen Forza3 and this ain't even in the same league.
Xboxers. I'm glad thats starting to take off. Oh yeah, I thought of that. ;)
Cars and tracks take a LOT more space than lines of code needed for the physics. I don't know why Xbox fanboys keep bringing up damage when Forza 3 only offers Driver 2 (for the PS1) type of damage. They're a shameless bunch I tells ya. Physics? There's been no other car game that allows you to hit the wall, make your car jump in mid-air and do a nosedive into the ground, then stay balanced for 30 seconds, and let you drive away with barely any scratches or damage done to your car. And if you are talking about tires wearing out, Gran Turismo has had that since the PS1 era. Very definitive.
Beautiful graphics only on and only possible on the king of consoles, the PS3. Hey Xbums, getting tired of your GT5 wannabe already? :D
This game looks like a hot mess. I was so dissopointed in the visuals I did not even finish watching the video.
Oh you're disappointed by a tiny demo with cut down visuals to fit in a 220MB installation? Oh you poor thing. The Xbox 360 must disappoint you overall then.
Yes is only that.
it's a demo and anyways this game is for true race fans like my self.
It looks beautiful!
A little bit disappointed by this demo. Hoped a better game.
A better Demo (fixed)
its not meant to be a demo. Its meant to be a competition.
This is Ridge Racer? lol
That Nissan was moving like unrealistically supped up R1 class racer. That Nissan put top of the line Ferraris handling to shame. What was that an Zo8? That movement would spin out most Skylines lol.
The car looks like real.
Gran Turismo 5 The Real Driving Simulator.
Why did they need to get it down to 220mb?
They probably dont want people to base their decision on getting this game from the demo alone. The demo is just meant for the contest. If people play the game thinking it's a representation of the full game, some might not want to buy it...so why take the risk?
Because that's all that's needed. It's a time trial for GT Academy. It is NOT a GT5 demo as many keep calling it, even Sony were quick to point out in the press release this is in no way a demo of GT5.
Looks better than forza 3 suck on it bots.
the17th cant come any sooner
I hope this isn't representational of the actual game. People are saying it's a demo, so I'm not going to get too worried. I'm still excited about this game.
It's not even a demo, it's early preliminaries for the GT Academy. It's completely stripped of anything that isnt needed. This is in no way a representation of what to expect from the actual game.
Looks awesome, can't wait to try out the demo tomorrow.
Feck me, a cut-down 220 MB competition level looks that good??? Only those in utter denial will maintain the 'definitive racer' tag for Forza 3 when the full game hits!
Crap, even though this is just a TASTE of what GT5 will offer, I'm stoked! PS3... it only does crazy awesome, insanely realistic racing games. ^_^
this does not look that much better than forza motorsport 3 in cokpit view and graphics and the video is in a 720p and i am running this on a really good mac... overrated
Try running it on a PS3. It looks heaps better.
"With that said, someone with access to the demo also received an email from Sony that wanted to emphasize this is not a demo of Gran Turismo 5, and is only being released for GT Academy. Polyphony Digital has also posted a new press release, clearly stating the demo was “specifically designed for this competition to showcase the realism of the brand-new physics engine” and nothing more. " As well as this tidbit from here... http://us.gran-turismo.com/... "The demo was specifically designed for this competition to showcase the realism of the brand-new physics engine and to challenge players’ driving skills using professional driving physics and many of the driving assists disabled. The full Gran Turismo 5 will feature multiple driving assists and various settings that can be changed to make the game easier or more challenging and realistic."
Just shows, that a site like Eurogamer states it's GT5 DEMO. It is not. This is a timetrial for GT academy. and uses just the driving physics of the realgame. This version is more stripped down then you know. Wait till you see the rally in GT5, and you thought DIRT2 looked good. ROFL. Gameover man, Gameover.
this game looks just like forza 3 but the cars look stiff n jumpy going threw corners..
i wacthed this demo gameplay vid, and i was wondering wether it was gt 4 or gt5?? C'mon ps3 fangirls, you call this the all time king of racers?? Forza Motorsport 3 will pawn this game when it comes out,in online play, customization, fun and probably even graphics! GT 5 is going to be a really boring game, with a whole bunch of cars that your not even going to drive.
Well, if you prefer arcade racers and painting cars with blingin' decals, Forza will be a better game. If you like simulators, Gran Turismo is the way to go.
I also disagree with #14, this looks nothing like the other game he mentioned. This game has lackluster detail, textures, color, poor over all environments and almost seems like lower poly cars in gameplay. There is no detail so polished you can see every rock in the pavement in this game. All I see are flat painted in effects with blur. PS3 fans are using the excuse the devs are supposedly using, saying this is just an example to show off the realism yet why show something that defeats the purpose, greatly? Go read some of the previews, most are worried and hope the devs can fix the game, some are sort of surprised how good replays look but how average or "good" the gameplay looks.
You are so full o sh!t give it up already you said sorry fanboy.
let me remind you that 10 million gamers around the world knows which franchise is the DEFINITIVE one and it is certainly not from Turd10. Prepare yourself, GT5 is going to blow everyone away, I feel sorry for you 360 losers who are stuck with forza. Don't cry you eyes out when the game eventually drops
This game is unbelievable. I can't wait.
...disappoint the fans. =)
say after watching it: http://tv.gawker.com/542688...
Considering this is solely for a contest, and not an official demo of the game. That said, because of the obvious false perception that would come with its release, they should've spruced up the presentation a bit more.
And maybe they shouldn't have picked such an awful track.
A 370z isn't exactly a light car, but it shouldn't oversteer that much, let alone with that big wing on the back creating a lot of downforce.
That's pretty darn disappointing. I've tried the 720 feed and downloaded it elsewhere. Obviously this isn't anything near a final build of GT5, but this is a mistake, IMO, to release such a weak graphical showing. It gives fanboys fodder for "it suxxors" and such. Why does Sony do these things?
why are people disappointed at the demo. Isn't the reason why they release the demo is because of a certain competition that they are holding. They could have made you buy GT5P to enter the competition, but they didn't. The demo looks pretty good for 220mb. There are full games bigger than 220mb that don't look as good.
I'm curious how many people have driven a souped up tuned Z and are credible enough to make a proper critique about the level of accuracy in the GT academy TT Z
I'm pretty sure Sony/Polyphony also want to know who can post the best lap times so they can somehow make their opinion on who they'll probably pick as their next driver.. ..the lucky bastard. I for one am slightly disappointed because was expecting that they give us the trial demo version with damage-mode of Subaru WRC, although it still has some issues and needs more work.
To all folks who think this time trial looks bad or plays bad: 1st case: buy PS3 and see how it looks, and 2nd case: buy PS3, drive it, and then see how you are standing on list of best times.
lol this is the GT5 ?? Looks as crap as GT5P 2D people FTW!!
Look at them and compare those to the character models in Eiger Nordwand in GT5 P, a world of difference.
