VG247: Remember Gran Turismo 5 getting delayed earlier this week from its planned March release date in Japan? Here's why: it isn't finished yet.
I am glad it's taking this long. It has to live up to the standard that has been set by Forza 3. Edit: LMAO. 6 disagrees already and so far and every reply is from people that are already on my ignore list. I've had my fun. Thanks guys.
But what standard did Forza set?
PD always seems to find a way to surprise me. Only 90% complete? That is simply incredible to say the least. Looks like this will be ((the)) Gran Turismo of the PS3. A beast for the ages indeed.
only to end in a fizzle.
I fell out of my chair laughing at the stupidity of your comment.
have to agree with ukilnme truth hurt not that GT5 will be a bad game...it's still day 1 buy
I'm confused here...are we talking about Gran Turismo 4? I thought this article was on Gran Turismo 5.
What standard has Forza3 set.. that wasn't already allegedly set by Forza2?
I'm curious about this standard talk as well.
Polyphony digital is one of the most talented developers out there. Let them take their time. It's not like it needs years more development time, just a few months.
@ukilnme At this pace, it'll have to live up to the standard of Forza 4 :S
any1 know when its cumin out in UK?
Sony does not rush out their games. Kind of like how Blizzard releases their games when they say it's done. PD probably could have released the game already and get over 7+mil in sales easy with high ratings and be working on GT6 already but they didn't. PD shows the amount of pride and dedication they have by holding off releasing a product not fully realized and Sony having the confidence in them to deliver a top quality game.
the 1st gran turismo took like what 6 years to make and its widley considered to be ,not just one of the greatest racing sims of all time but also one of the most innovative, and greatest games of all time it will be well worth the wait. it will be a huge critical and commercial success regardless of what the haters say.
Lol look at all the GT haters coming out of the woodwork to bash it, GT definitely got that Halo effect on them.
Or we're just kind of baffled at the fact that PD told us the game was finished back in 2009, and we're now being told it's 90% done.
Because Gran Turismo is Halo's biggest threat, other than Modern Warfare (which is multiplat). Its alright Bungie. Sales does not equal quality anyways. You can be sure that although GT5 will beat Halo's numbers once again, Halo's quality will not be affected by it one bit. Heck, you just might be able to finally play Halo in 720p once Reach comes out... maybe. ^_~
As great as a developer PD is, they have the worst public relations. I can't wait for this game oh wait actually I can. I've been waiting almost 2 years since prologue came out, and I know its going to be a great game but I'm not convinced that it will justify 5 years development time. I hope I'm proven wrong.
90% complete? Does this mean it may not be released until year's end?
I am really a SONY fan, own all SONY consoles and no other console, GT and MGS are my favorite franchises, but: wasn't Yamauchi saying, that they can release GT 5 anytime they want? And that was several months ago... After Prologue and the time trial demo I am really worried about the game's engine and it's performance. Even the downgraded grafx of the demo are not performing perfectly. Oh, btw Bungie and ukilnme: WTF?
^^^ It's N4G. I was just having some fun.
Stop panicing people. Yes they said the game was finished before, but it pretty obvious they've rethought what finished means. They just keep adding more and more to this game. Does 90% mean they still have 100 cars and 9 tracks to do? No, all of the content like that will be done already. They are simply adding more features. It might have been finished enough to release but they want more in it, like the head tracking, the GPS, the online modes, even the track editor will make it I bet. You should be glad PD is a dev that will take its time and put these things in now while they can polish them, rather than patch them in later and charge you for DLC. PS GT does not follow Forzas footsteps. From day one its been Forza thats stared with envious eyes and wanted so bad to be GT. And the XBoxers so badly wanted it too. Hate to sound corny but, often imitated, never duplicated. Thats all, I wouldnt have mentioned Forza if you hadn't brought it up like something bad stuck in your throat.
Standards set by Forza? What???!1!1
Something like 1080p, 60Fps, 16 cars, 200k polygons per car.
Just look at this first comment and all its replies... 360 guys should stop complaining there is so many more PS3 fanboys now and they get in every 360 news and bwah wah wah... Thinks look pretty even for me, which is, too much on both camps.
saying forza has set the standard for racing sims is pretty arrogant. there's no denying that Turn 10 made a good racer out of forza 3, but it will never live to the legacy set up by PD and the GT series. i can bet you money that forza and project gotham racing were only made because microsoft wanted a counter measure against GT and tried to have the same success as it. PD is endorsed by big name car manufacturer companies and a lot of real life racers has used GT games for track references and sometimes simulated practice. when people think true racing sims, they automatically think of GT. forza might be a close second, but GT's popularity and mainstay for it's genre makes it the king for racing sims.
so why are you bringing it up in the first place? Reported as off topic not that it will make a dent on this site. I would really love to hear your opinion of these supposed standards Forza 3 set especially from a guy that hasn't played it. Funny how you mock N4G when it' comments like yours as to why this site is nothing but a cluster f##k where nearly every article turns into a p!ssing contest. Unlike you I have actually played Forza 3. Actually I am only a couple days of casual play from completing all the events on the event list. It's a fine racing game but I don't see any new standards being raised by it. It is basically Forza 2 with slightly improved visuals and some cool new tracks. Hardly a trend setter. GT5 will be released when it's done and I'm sure it will be another excellent game from PD.
1.24 - We shall talk, when Forza pass GT5 Prologue standarts: Something like 1080p, 60Fps, 16 cars, 200k polygons per car. it's a shame for a GT, but the 60 frames are not really performing perfectly. And I suspect this is the reason why the game is delayed: the have problems getting the engine perform perfectly. GT 3 and GT 4 were performing perfectly with 60 fps, no slowdowns, no tearing. And I pray for GT 5 doing so as well. My only hope is, that they don't prefer grafic quality over performance. The dropping framerate and the tearing are annoying in GT 5 Prologue!
"only 90% complete", but didn't PD say that they could release GT5 at ANY time?...just sick of waiting. I'll pass.
I don't know about you, but i play games not tech specs. 1080p is great but im not gonna throw a fit if it is 720p.
Spin that title, bot Yamauchi: GT5 is is only "90%" complete Grade 3 education, FTW
The rewind while racing feature.. DUH, that will forever set standards for games to come in future generations and beyond. :)
wasn't that in Dirt or Dirt 2? Edit: @Johnny Cullen Thanks for the correction.
Race Driver: Grid, actually.
yes because rewinding a game is so revolutionary, so....Casual... GT fans dont care about such a stupid feature. thats pretty much easy mode. GT fans are too hardcore for this. i would vomit if i say that stupid feature in GT.
Made Forza 3 a boring game. I don't play it anymore because it was so easy. I stil have to lose a single race in the whole game.
These people love games with no skill required to do anything.
Just curious, would they be the same people who found Killzone hard to aim, but love CoD's autosnap noobloving aim mechanism?
Hey guys, wasn't he being sarcastic? Hence the "DUH" and the ":)". 15 Disagrees, sheesh.
For game developers that get to work w/ house money and aren't forced in to release dates. I think you would see a lot better games if EA and Activision didn't have so much control.
GranTurismo 5 will be so Ginormous, it will be incomprehensible and totally incomparable to all previous GT iteration.
I was never a huge racing fan to begin, and the hours I put in Forza 3 pretty much did it for me. I don't even care when or if they release this anymore.
then why post?. Dude, no one care that you don't care.
Clearly you cared enough to post to his response lol
I've probably spent over a hundred hours in forza 2 and forza 3 combined but I still plan on buying gt5 on day 1.
I don't care that you care to care that you don't care that he doesn't care.
@blacknut. For example if i don't care about Halo i wouldn't go into a Halo article and post that i don't care about halo. If you don't care then why post?. I was just pointing that out. Its just retarded. Instead of trying to be a smart ass try to use a little bit of common sense.
This is the exact reason I didnt get Forza 3. Why ruin my appetite on hamburger when I have a steak coming? I dont want both, and one is worth waiting for.
extra 20% of the spu's, its disappointing imo that they haven't filled it up to a hundred and i'm a ps3 fanboy!
Fill in the extra 20%, what does that mean exactly? I could be wrong, but I don't think you fill in processing power, I think you use it. Anyway, carry on.
if i remember correctly, don't the developers "assign" code to the spu's? i just feel its not right that they have spent 5 years on this game and have yet to use the cell at 100%. and i remember a gt dev saying that one of the reasons it kept getting delayed was because they kept on finding "breakthroughs" in developing for the cell... where are those breakthroughs if they are only using 80%? i just want the game to be the best it can be, i don't see why the disagree's were necessary.
...has set a new benchmark by which all other console racing games are compared. I for one want them to polish this game to the max before its released so delay until its ready I say.
relax guys, i was being sarcastic about the Rewind feature. GT5 is going to own all, cant wait for it.
Mods plz ban all those multi-accounts freaks!!
I don't understand the hate this game got from x360,MS and Turn 10. PD is creating the best game they can for car enthusiast, GT and PS fans who will buy GT5. So really i don't understand at all the hate from the other camp who has not interest in this game in the first place. For me personally its simple. I rather only spend $60 on one definitive racing game than spends $180 on 3 games that all combined still is less that the size and quality of GT5. Common sense. Something that is not very common.
This game is going to be so epic I really don't mind waiting. Plenty of other games to kill time until this masterpiece
the ones who are b*tching act like they dont have other games to play before this beauty hits. i know i got plenty to play like ME2, Bayonetta, Heavy Rain, GoW3, WKC, SO international, FFXIII with these maybe's MAG, Darksiders, Dante's Inferno, and SC Conviction (if this doesnt get pushed back again) it looks like im well covered before the beauty that is GT5 comes out.
Sony will not release GT5 and GOW3 in same month, doesn't make sence. GT5 is one THE biggest game on this planet and will seriously hurt GOW3 sales if release in a same month. That's why it's been delayed which imo is good news asi will have Heavy Rain and GOW3 to complete before GT5 comes out. I've got the wheel and seat all ready for it. Getting late off to bed now.
something makes me think this will never live up to the hype... numerous delays and articles are breathing down everyone's necks in anticipation... that is never a good sign... there is such a thing as too much exposure... i swear i see 10 GT5 articles a day on this website... it almost as bad as all the halo articles when a new one is announced... there's only one thing that ever lived up to the hype for me personally... the 2006 national championship rose bowl game between texas and USC... no video game has ever lived up the lofty hype placed upon it for me... i'm pretty sure this game won't live up to the hype either for me... it just looks like a decent racing game with amazing graphics... how much groundbreaking can driving in circles get? come on... the demo showcased the driving skills but, i didn't come away impressed...
WTF was that about, that had to be the most random rant ever. Rose Bowl? It's okay to put down the crack pipe brotha, they have groups to help you deal with addiction. Hahahaha. J/K, have a good weekend cracky.
Numerous delays??? There has only been one official delay and that was for Japan.
You can find me on Live or on PSN, just check my tags, but GODDAMN... **FacePalm** Really? You PS3 fanboys just sit back and take it up the azz for years & never get upset. I mean, you guys even went out and paid 40 bucks for a demo. I'm not buying this f&cking game! I'm done waiting...
GT5 gets pushed back for more content, and it's a godsend. Splinter cell does as well, and there's a problem with it?
Actually, the Splinter Cell bashing for the latest delay (of which this is like the fourth) was in direct response to the GT delay trolling.
There was a title in N4G stating this: "Splinter Cell: Conviction delay a sign of Quality?" http://n4g.com/xbox360/News... -End statement
when will this game ever be launch ? Just finish the game PD please dont add to many features to the point it is taking forever. the problem is they are adding so many features which me might not need or just make the game overwhelming. not all technology that come out needs to be added. To many cooks will spoil the food. no more car show, please just release the game please no more additional tech or features that we might not need, just release the game
I agree completely. Gran Turismo is bordering on being irrelevent for nearly everyone I know who is waiting for it. If we hadnt all had bad experiences with 360's before we'd probably have jumped ship to the less spectacular Forza 3. I am starting to think PD has lost its focus (WTF - you delayed GT5 for GT:PSP and it WASNT EVEN THAT GOOD!!!) and I'm hoping this sinking suspiscion that GT5 is going to disappoint is unfounded.
I think it'll be released in the Summer. September latest, worldwide.
