Polyphony Digital partners with Denso to create a "GPS-track day unit" to bring real-world laps into the game.
Wow. That's actually some amazing stuff. If I was a racer, i could see myself driving on a closed circuit once, pulling the data from that drive and watching how i did on my ps3, as well as doing it over and over again virtually.
that is a first next game game :D
that's too much guys! I don't know how much more definitive you guys wanna GT5 to be! but somehow I think reviews will nitpick even more on this!
So I can use this Functionality!! WOOT!
if your a race fan you can upload a race and see how you stack against the pro's n that 3d thing could b cool if we can afford a new 3d tv
GT5 is truly Nex-Gen its gonna be part of Nex-Gen Racing on and off your console. This is truly turning into the first REAL console seller. Also PS3 REALLY DOES EVERYTHING.
i wonder if turn10 could keep up with all those things PD is putting in GT5
As minor as this sounds for most people, Polyphony are really taking their life in their hands in terms of "realism" here. There's been many tests of GT vs real life, but never something where people could feed data back via GPS to the game.
"MotorTrend editor Peter Lyon was also able to confirm that a “3D version” of GT5 will be available “as soon as 3D TVs become available on the market." Through firmware or separate version? Hmmm?
Firmware. I'm sure it'll force it to 720p mode though. But rendering 120 frames of 1080p screens would be a feat to achieve, not to mention a limitation of the HDMI =P. So it WILL be firmware.. just 720p.
But I thought that any 120 hrz plus tv can do 3-D? So aren't tv's capable now? So are you telling me that projectors cant do 3-D either?
Theoretically any 120 fps TV can do 60 fps 3D, but the main problem is The synchronization between the TV and the 3D glasses. The glasses needs to know if the frame the TV is showing is made for the left or right eye, and the change between frames should happen at the exact same moment as when the glasses block the vision of one eye and allow you to see with the other, and since we're talking about 120 fps, that is not an easy thing to achieve, especially if the TV wasn't design in a way allowing it to communicate with 3D glasses.
use this tech. to upload track information. I mean, if you could use the GPS data to map out new tracks. We could go for a drive and then upload our route, instant track.
Whoa now that's hardcore
damn! SNE takes it to the next level again with the flagship no less!
i might get me one of them for next time at at a track day at silverstone!
This game just gets better and better.
it also gets delayed and delayed. but i dont mind as long its gonna be a 10/10 game
My gosh PD, is definitely pushing BEYOND definitive. -End statement
Ok, now that cool.
even if functionality like that isn't used by the majority, u can't denied that gt5 is gonna be packed with features and is certainly looking like a true 'current gen' game. most games have pushed this gen via graphics or how realistic physics are, it seems gt is just really pushing things frwd
and yet the media and fanboys are calling PD lazy... can you guys believe it ?
Gran Turismo 5: The Unique Driver Simulator
FPS has nothing to do with 3-D So if I'm looking at a picture in 3-D with my Nvidia 3d Vision shutter glasses at present please tell me how I can see 3-d :) Games will be checkerboard 3-D with Sony tech I reckon so not as much overhead, you do loose half the resolution on the vertical component but I don't notice currently whilst using my Samsung Plasma with Nvidia shutter glasses in this format. My PC doesn't get anywhere near 120fps with my GTX260OC card, I also use the shutterglasses with the 22" Samsung 120hz screen that come bundled which uses a different 3-D method called page flipping where I get full 1680x1050 60hz per eye, I love both can't wait 3-D 3-D 3-D 3-D Chant with me :)
Not suprised this game seems to be taking forever to finish. All the extras the game has is amazing, they just keep adding new things to it all the time. It's about time they did get the game finished though, I've been waiting long enough now. Only so many laps can be done on Demo/ hours play on prologue before wanting more(the real GT5 experience).
Bringing realism to a new level.
This game keeps getting better. And when it gets delayed, it even gets much better!
you gotta love these guys they love what they do( race and play games) and their pulling more more car lovers and racers to video games no matter what u may think
ANYONE who doesn't understand that this TRULY means that GT is "The REAL Driving Simulator" is just straight biased & misinformed. Done. It CANNOT be denied. Nothing like this has EVER been implemented and it just shows/confirms the level of quality, detail, & ACCURACY that the GT line of titles have ALWAYS strived, offered and provided to give to it's followers...REAL DRIVERS. GT5 is a game changer. Utterly, Truly and Definitively. Kazunori Yamauchi is without a doubt the best in his field. BAR NONE. PERIOD.
F*cking insane... Buying GT5, enuff said.
