The question is raised as to whether GT5's delay will lead to something better or worse.
Sony hasnt officially announced release date for outside Japan. (this Sony Portugal doesnt count, you need press report) Calling it "delay" is impossible...
there will be Forza 4 announcement before GT5 is released :)
@TheDudeAbides: Hahah, good one.
And it still won't be as good as Gran Turismo 4.
Forza 4 will come out or at least be announced before GT5 releases But... Forza 4 would still look worse than GT Prologue, forget GT5 Still be in 720p and have 8-player online Have the same last gen damage models Forza 1 had Look exactly the same as Forza 2 Continue to have laughable interior models, no weather/night racing, arcadey physics which the xbox crowd will lap up as "realistic"
I heard that on the retail disc for GT5 there is a demo for Duke Nukem Forever.
@TheDudeAbides Forza 4?, Nah...Forza ODST... /jk GT5 Delay For The Sake Of The Series is Always for the Best, ho want 1 game per year with slightly updates, man that's not make any sense Let The Master Kazuroni Finish his Work and after that we all going to Enjoy The Real Driving Simulator
@1.3 - Fanboyish, but true haha. Stupid article, of course it will mean the game is better, they have more time to work on it, how would it be worse? Notice that no one said anything about Splinter Cell's delay, except "oh cool, that means it will be more polished."
have always been delayed for better. Why would it be delay for worst?
Better than what it would have been, had they released it earlier - this is obvious. However, the delay does tell us that they weren't happy with the game in the state that it was in, meaning that it won't be better than we're expecting because of the delay (because last year it wasn't as good as we'd like).
Perfection takes time
Tell it to the Duke.
lol @ above
but it also sucks if its true also they do have Nascar Rally Open Wheel racing league... cant remember the name... CART is it they are really loading this game because it will be the only GT for at least 5 years
I wish they had Formula 1. I hope Codemasters does a good job at it this year
Seconded. If it had formula 1 it would be the greatest game of all time! Why leave out the premier racing series in the world!?
Well you've got IndyCar right? I guess that's the next best thing to F1. Shame there's so much White tape and licensing issues to get around when making a racing game.
@PimpHandHappy is IndyCar Pal and is behind Formula 1 @mint royale Licensing Fees and Royalties are Damn Expensive if you want the Formula 1 cars @Fishy Fingers Not to mention, how the Cars Manufacturer don't let any Dev to make Destructible cars if they not sign a check with more  on it lol
thats the first time i had to disagree with you fishy. cart is really far away from formula1, the downforce levels at high speed is so much more on a f1 car, those things go so fast in turns. since gran turismo 3, there has been formula 1 cars in every game(they have not been licensed f1 cars, GT:5 prologue saw the first ferrari f1 car.) So i really hope we'll see any time of f1 car.
Personally I cannot wait for GT5, yet I still don't mind when we get these 'delays' (which someone rightly said are only delays for Japan). Because I know the end product will simply be epic in scale and quality. there are several multiplats and ps3 exclusives coming now and soon so it's not like we are in need a big game right now
with so many games till june, GT5 needs space to breathe and when ps3 install base is at a decent level so GT5 will get enough sales. It was never delayed in first place just announced last E3
Not releasing it till it's done for the better. Calling it a delay, despite never getting dated, for the worse.
gt5 NOT Coming THIS Years!!!!!!!!! SOOOOORRY SN OF BICIS CONTRIBUTOR
It gets here when it gets here. I would rather it be delayed with no release date than have an unfinished product.
never had any release date outside of japan....
whats going on here, but no one wants to write about it for fear of PS3 fanboy backlash. The Japan delay was announced right after A.)Forza 3 released, and B) right after the release of that crappy demo that was supposedly the "dumbed down" version of the real game. I think that demo was very close to wht the real game was going to be, they released it to test the waters. I think when they released the demo and heard all the complaints about the physics and graphics not being any better than Forzas, they pulled back and decided to delay the entire release. And cut the crap, if we know the US EU release has to be after the Japan release, then a delay in Japan is a delay everywhere. I get so sick of everyone walking on egg shells and lying to themselves, and everyone else, because we all want to warp reality to avoid hurting the PS3 fanboy crowds feelings.
Keep telling yourself that.... :)
"I think that demo was very close to wht the real game was going to be, they released it to test the waters." Meh.. the GamesCom demo in Germany last year looked already way better, but I think you're right about the other things.
Yeah 220MB is representation of the final product. I think N4G should do an IQ test before issuing accounts.
are probably right, I just dont think a development cycle this long, with delays so late is a sign of a perfectionist, it is the sign of an insane person. I don't think Yamauchi is insane, I think Sony is putting pressure on PD to surpass FM3's performance, not just match it. Even if the graphics were good as everyone claims, we know the FM3 physics were above reproach, this maybe what they are trying to improve in GT5. But to be honest, I have not seen any REAL in game extra cokpit footage of GT5, that actually has looked any better than FM3.
Strikepackage Bravo You know what, I don't post a lot here for the reasons you listed. There is something wrong with the people here at N4G. If it were up to me, I would have it so the names of the disagree "ers" would show up...but anyway, moving on. You are right Strike, I think they are scared. It has been how many years now, 6? If people don't absolutely fall in love with the game (and I mean EVERYONE), all those years will be wasted. PD will look like A$$wholes (which I don't want) and people will say "it took them X years for this ?", similar to the backlash on PSP. Personally, there is nothing they can do realistically to please people now, it has been so long that this game better be Fu%$&@# perfect! PS I REALLY want this game. lol
Too Human, anyone? At some point they just have to release it. There will ALWAYS be things that an artist will think can be improved upon. They need to just draw a line in the sand and say "when we get to this date, we are done making changes." Just release it.
Too many games during this month and next month. Waiting is fine with me.
Not saying Gt5 is a bad game, but a famous quote by miyamoto "a delayed game is eventually good but a bad game is bad forever"
The GT developers have always been knows for there search for perfection this why the game has take this long, I believe if we have waited for this long a couple of more moths won’t make a difference…
this is not a couple months, this is dam near a year longer wait. The lack of professionalism by these Japanese companies, at least by American or western standards, is profound. Can you imagine MS announcing a release date for Halo 3, and two months before the release they retract the date, and never bother to tell anyone when the real release date will be? You can't do stuff like that with games as big as Halo and GT5. To keep so many fans in the dark for so long is just disgustingly arrogant.
People need to come down it isn’t like there no other games coming, ill be broke before the summer with all the games that are coming, GT developers knows what there doing and it will be worth the wait this game will be pack with nascar and rally, what other game offers this much content? This game will be out by the summer in Japan and September in the rest of the world, I fully expect a E3 blow out of the game and show even more features that have not been shown but I understand your frustration, I waited for the last Zelda game for a whole year, been push back time and time again when it came closer to realize only to be realize on the WII first and me having to wait even more months for it to come out on the GameCube, but what are you going to do play other games until GT gets here, if you are fortunate enough to have both console buy forza 3, if you only have a PS3 buy the other games that are coming out and there is a lot of them .
thanks for showing what the difference between America and Japan is. http://www.kirainet.com/eng... in America, we dont like to wait.
At this point a little more waiting isn't going to bother me. I've had my rants about gt5 in the past, but i'm trying to be more relaxed in 2010 (new years res.). PD, we know you're perfectionists, take your time.
Blizzard says hi. they take over 10 years to make one game and people go nuts over how long it took to make. Then the game comes out and it's filled with nothing but praise. PD take your time, they haven't screwed us over yet and I don't think they will this time either. /goes back to playing video games
PS3 aka Patchstation aka Installstation = FAIL PSN & HOME = BIGGEST FAIL MAG = FAIL 256 PPL online?? = FAIL WKC = FAIL Heavy rain = FAIL 2010 = Failstation
first off, I am no fanboy. I used to own only a 360, and then a ps3, and then after the ban wave, just a ps3. Anyways, I have played forza 3 and I have played the time trial gt5 demo. To be honest, I think it is almost exactly like forza 3. gameplay and graphics. That isn't necesarlly a bad thing for the game. If you make a game that acts very realistic, then a competitors game should control the same. I am just saying, that forza has been out, and has the same amout of realistic feeling as the gt5 time trial demo, and we are waiting for gt5 till the end of the year? And wasn't gt5 in production when forza 2 was in production!!!??? (yes, im talking about forza 2, not forza 3 which is already out) So unless they are taking their time to make it look and feel even better, than forza will defiantly have the upper hand on the realistic racing franchise. I mean it will have come out almost a year before gt5. Also, why are we using X to accelerate? I know its the gt way, but everything this generation has been using the triggers as the main buttons in the games. Come on get with the program. (I haven't checked the slt control schemes, so you might be able to change it, but i think it should be accelerate and brake on the triggers by default. Then they could have a classic control scheme that you could select.)
What game are you playing? You use the right analogue stick to accelerate and brake in GT4, GT5 Prologue and GT5!
well, i haven't played the gt series since 3. and i started the demo, and pressing x was the only way my car will accelerate. i can record a video if you like. no settings were touched, all i did was download and install the time trail demo, and then run it.
Why would they delay a game just to make it worse? =P (BTW: The only delay was for JAPAN!)
Im not even a racing simulation fan, but i have to get this for the visuals and the amount of effort they are putting in it. I haven't heard of any other game being in development longer than this!!
ive been playing gt since number 1 when gt4 was released it was a huge dissapiontment and ever since ive played forza. polyphony digital have always been the kings when it comes to car models and lighting but when it comes to game play an how the cars drive forza wins forza 3 has taken racing to the next level and as an overall graphical package i.e textures for the road grass background details and exellent car models and lightng although i will say again gt has better car models and lighting but thats it only a true fanboy would disagree with me forza 3 is also better online and its hard enough racing against 7 other good players never mind 15 i think turn 10 has got that right
