USA Today had the chance to interview Kazunori Yamauchi about the upcoming Gran Turismo 5. Check it out.
this dude is a beast.
His passion is unrivaled
Yah he really seems to love what he does.
Akin to what the original Gran Turismo did for the racing genre back during the PS1 era, GT5 will do the same once again... but in game design and functionality. Holy...
Bow down bots and kiss your masters feet!
Motion Control in GT5?! Was that reporter serious? Racers are one genre that is not for motion control. Just like a real car, the ultimate aim is a wheel, pedal and gear shifter.... not flailing your arms around like a retard. Ok, that was very harsh of me but I wish some reporters would use a bit of common sense because racing games are nothing like RPGs where you can use motion control for swords and shields.
how hard is it to make a plastic wheel for the insertion of the wand? so you can play it the same way mario kart is played? are u dumb? its just an ez hardware add for those who dont want to spend 200-300 on top logitech wheels...now hush, your not a businessman for a reason
Dude, there is nothing more to add for the realism effect than a Steering Wheel, Pedals and Gears. And it will not break the bank to buy these things over time. You really think that people will not be able to afford this equipment over the huge amount of time it will take to even get 50% through it?! I didn't buy the equipment as soon as I got GT4 you know, I wanted it from the start but couldn't afford it. However, I did in the end after putting my heart into getting one and saving up. What do you suggest for pedals anyway? 3 wands in movable hole? and another wand in hole for the gear stick? 5 wands to get the same effect? So that is 5 wands in total and the plastic parts for them. May as well spend the (very) little bit extra and get the real thing.
Did you even bother to read his response to the question? "It might be used to maybe control the user interface like you would a mouse, but that the extent we would use it for." Why fixate your attention on the question, when the answer is there for you. No motion control for driving. Simple as that.
I was questioning the reporter, not the creator so I have to ask.... Did you even bother to read my post?
He's a reporter, with motion controls bursting out on the scene from the major manufacturers of course he will ask about it. Every interview concerning every game of late seems to mention motion controls in one way or another.
...is actually MOST used in the Racing genre. I mean, take a look at Motorstorm or WipEout HD (am I missing another one?)... both utilize the technology which makes for a better / more fun experience IMO. As for GT5, it makes no sense to include it (and spend all the time configuring each car to DS3 motion control). You can use the racing wheel which is much more realistic and suitable for the quality of GT5.
Kaz is King XFlopza3 and Che Chou = LAME
"I created the first Gran Tursimo back in 1997 (for the original PlayStation). Back then, it kind of set a new standard for the style for car racing games. This Gran Turismo 5 is going to change all that now. It will change the style of car games in the future. It will be creating a new standard for the genre." 8)
...be just like him someday.
not necessary to list the feature set of his latest creation.but it's just on another level. even with all the imitators,they still don't match up and compare. i expect a track editor too as they took much of the london resource material from the shelved getaway game and already added a portion in GT5:P.
Man looks like an idiot.
jealousy. i understand. now go back and play your cartoon, flawza 3
So what system is the best game ever made "Metal Gear Solid 4" played on? PS3 right? Yet ur playing on the wrong console.... in other words you look like the idiot!!
the fluff this guy talks, it is clear that PD are inferior sim developers to T10. T10 has created the definitive sim of this gen, and they did it in a time frame that PD can only dream of. It simply should not take this long to get your crap together, there is something really amateur hour about the secrecy and time frame around GT5. And until we get a solid release date, they can keep all the other hype to them selves.
the definitive racer that 37-38 million 360 gamers DIDN'T BUY.yup that's definitive. having lemans races with no 24 hour or night time racing.yup,that's definitive. can''t equal polyphony by putting 16 cars on the road.yup,that's definitive. have to darken the windows to keep the framerate up.yup,that's definitive. having to switch the car models out berfore actually driving on the road,lying about 4X the polygons of cars that are not on the road.yup,that's definitive. having to install the second disc,having to download the rest of the cars,can't play the whole game without a hard drive.yup.....just STFU. you failed strike.while the game you speak of has some racing,sony's will cater to so many type of racers and drivers that there is no comparison.and don't speak of sales as GT5:P has still sold more copies.so forza3 gets beat by a **DEMO** end rant.
They are building a new engine and a new game from the ground up at the same time idiot! and the game engine itself takes a very long time and a true driving Simulator can never be made in 1 and half years like Forza 3. How can a developer accurately replicate the movement, feel, sound, aerodynamics, interior detail, exterior detail, chassis and every other part of 400 cars in the short time period of 1 and half years? That just sounds absurd. Why do you think Forza 3's physics make you feel like your riding a flying carpet? because Forza 3's a rushed product and it'll always be inferior to GT5, GT6, GT7 and so on....
all that stuff you spouted and not one word of it addressed the concerns I mentioned; nor does any of it change the fact that F3 is better than any GT game ever made, keep in mind GT5 is not out yet. Most of the crap you said I've heard before, but the darkened windows thing is new to me. You do realize the windows are perfectly clear in Forza until YOU tent them yourself right? If you saw dark windows on a forza car it was probably because someone custom tented them. What makes Forza 3 great is that it is fun and it stays fun, you can personalize your cars, even cars like the Bugatti, and the Aston Martin one 77. Anyone can pick it up play it and enjoy it. It has damage, and had it before any GT game, while the graphics are great, the physics are even better, the cars drive and sound like their real life counter parts; it can be played just as easy with a controller as with a wheel, it has a good mix of cars, not too heavy on the Japanese who cares cars, and not dozens of the same car with slightly different configurations, and finally the online community is above reproach, GT5 will never match Forzas online community, and thus will never touch its replay value. Forza 3 didn't get rave reviews for nothing, everyone knows its the new benchmark, including PD and Sony, this is why they delayed GT5, because they know they have to come correct if they dont want to be horribly embarrassed. The only folks still in denial are you PD/Sony fanboys. @below Im not "butthurt" leave my butt out of this, why are you talking about my butt? I just refuse to keep heaping praise on a company that is clearly unsure of their product, and so they are jerking their customers around as a result of this fact. Im not going to just go along with whatever they feed me like some dazed love struck 14 year old girl. Im a better consumer than that by far, and I call BS, these guys need to start talking facts, not all this fluff, their competition has launched already so there is NO excuse for this secrecy, it just stinks of uncertainty and insecurity.
@ Strikepackage Bravo lol.. you are realy butt hurt :) Let's wait and see for reviews :)
I bet you are the kind of guy who thinks Halo is the definitive shooter sim and CoD is the definitive infantry simulator
you never fail to troll.. but you fail as a troll..
I really want to get that wheel he's using when i get GT5. A controller sucks. Any of you guys have a wheel? Whats it like, and how do you place it, like on a table or something?
http://wheelstandpro.com/ I don't have this, but apparently it is pretty awesome(According to podcast beyond!). When I get the game, I'll probably get the steering wheel, and this stand all at the same time.
the Logitech G25 if you could still find it in the market. It got better reviews than the G27. I have the G25 and I have tried it on GT5P, it's better than a controller, but you have to get used to it first as it handles very differently from a controller. Notice that I said tried on the GT5P, it's because the table I am using as the stand for the G25 is being used by my children to do their homeworks. That's why I wasn't able to use the wheel very much. But come vacation time, I'll have the table all to myself.
Narutone is correct. The G25 is actually still the better wheel and can be had for cheaper than the G27 (if you could find one). Believe me, I know first hand ~
And yea... to really appreciate the realistic handling and force feedback, you definately need one of those quality wheels... Every car really feels different... every car has different feedbacks. You can feel exactly if the car is oversteering or understeering...
A steering wheel is going to be a must on GranTurismo 5.. the reaction and level of feel is so much more pronounced when I tried it on GT Academy which I think is just the start-up basis for GT5's driving physics. It's just that different compared to Prologue.
i thought i was kinda good with prologue.. and all of a sudden... i had trouble with the gt academy... everything just felt so different.. in a good way.. i had to learn my driving again... :)
Yeah. Ive never tried one but i can imagine itll be amazing. Where do you put yours, on a table? Still unsure about that.
you can use that : http://www.wheelstandpro.co... or that : http://www.playseat.com/sho...
Wish I could, but I cant justify spending £200 on that stuff.
Kazunori Yamauchi have the best job in the world, he gets to make games and actually test drive all cars from every manufacture. I remember him driving the GTR Skyline in the Germany race course. That was the best interview I saw from him.
he won some race at the most unforgiving track.. The nurburgring
wow he is spending all those 60 million th=o drive around and go around the world watch races.
Interesting how when this guy talks, his love for cars and for what they are creating shines through. And can we stop pretending Forza is in the same class. GT has better graphics, 1080p, 16-player online, night/all-weather, possibly track creator, more cars, WRC/Nascar, a revamped online, next-gen damage model, better in-car models and deformation, its so far superior it relegates Forza and NFS to the same level as Mario Kart. And when I hear people praise Forza's physics model, I suspect what they really like is dunbed-down, arcade-like controls. In some ways its the halo of racing games.
Why should GT6 be made when we have perfection already on the way? -End statement
