The release of the highly-anticipated Gran Turismo 5 on PS3 could be pushed back as far as late 2008 says director Kaunori Yamauchi, who wants the game to be absolutely perfect before it's released.
See above. *EDIT* Wow... you guys took my post wayyyy too literally. My apologies. Of course the PS3 will be around that long, I honestly feel bad for PS3 owners because of how long they've waited for a bunch of quality titles. That being said, on 360 we only have a COUPLE solid exclusives... we're not drowning in them by any means. I think it's funny that I made one small, sarcastic comment and it lead to (8) disagrees and a thread of console sparring. Hell, if Blue Ray officially wins the HD race and HDDVD's are eliminated... I'll have a PS3 the next day. And GT5 sometime in 2011 when it's released... for PS4.
Oh come on. I'm not the biggest Sony fan in the world, and yet to own a PS3, but we all know the PS3 will be around next year, and I'm guessing by then doing quite well. It seems a lot of games are getting put back to 2008 though. MGS4, FF13?, and now this! Delays are not good. I know they shouldn't rush games out to the stores, but Sony need to start getting extra staff in or something and get these games completed a little earlier so that the consoles start selling in the region that the Wii is at the moment.
LOL you dont mess with sony with GT fans around.
Actually MGS4 is still 2007 and FFXIII has been scheduled for 2008 since the launch of the PS3... so there aren't any delays there. However, a lot of their 06 titles were pushed into 07 and some of the 07 titles have seen pushes of a couple of weeks or more. I'm sure there will be a more solid idea of which games come out when after E3. But for now it appears that most of the major games are staying on schedule... I wouldn't put it past them to give us more delays but games releasing around the holiday are under more pressure to release on time b/c their profits decrease significantly otherwise.
I lost my bubbles for posting a stupid comment about Mass Effect jumping to PS3, I meant to joke, yeah it was stupid but people thought I was serious "Hell, if Blue Ray officially wins the HD race and HDDVD's are eliminated... I'll have a PS3 the next day." agreed. but until Universal gives up, it isn't over which sucks for consumers
This game was know to come out somtime in 2008, with all the detail going in the cars, it was common knowledge
No. It was expected to arrive @ Spring 2008, not Christmas 2008.
But it will be worth the wait. Every ferrari from the past 60 years (confirmed by Jeux video) NO damage. (shame) Most realistic physics ever (Edit: thats my opinion, i could be very wrong) In car view Rumours about Koenigsegg being in the game. Real sense of speed (video showing Le sarthe on Jeux video) That makes me happy, i'm playing forza 2 at the moment and that is great, could GT5 be better.... Wait and see people.
I think it will be awesome and look better than Forza 2, but I doubt it will have as good physics.
GT5 does indeed have damage. edit nvm just read the no damage part :/
Forza calculates damage and physics at 60 FPS 360 times a second, versus no damage and physics at a lower rate. Someone needs to drop the crackpipe. Will it look prettier? I am sure, all arcade racers so far have: Motorstorm, Dirt, ect.
Another fanboy, how old are you kid??? 16? Drive a car and find out what GAME comes close. Not forza 2. Forza 2 is a semi realistic game. GT4 and GTHD and GT5 are pure hardcore sims... I'm playing forza 2 at the moment with the MS wheel. Let me give you some facts. 1. Why is it so easy to control snap understeer in FM2, the cars move too slowely. That doesnt happen with a real car. When drifting with a real car snap understeer will accour if counter steer is too hard and too early into a corner (bad driving) In forza 2 i can control Understeer with a slow movement of the wheel, NOT REALISTIC. In GT4 Understeer was very hard to control, you need to know where to have your wheels straight coming out of a corner. REALISTIC (i use the G25) It took me 4 weeks of practice to clean the nurburgring on GT4, it took me a day on forza 2. On forza 2 i turn all aids off and the cars still feel too stable, On GT4 i turn all aids off and its bloody monster. (most cars). Forza is no hardcore sim, ask any real race driver.
Hhhmmm i have a funny feeling that Gt5 will be competing agianst forza 3.
september 2008, its a shame. But it tells you they are putting so much effort into the game.
It's well and good that they claim to be working so hard, but for example they're still not putting in damage. Forza has damage and Forza has licenses most of GT's same manufacturers and cars, so the argument that manufacturers won't allow damage is problematic at best. Until the GT team prove they can fix the worst issues with the series, it's hard to take the "want it to be perfect" bit so seriously. Anyone wanna take bets that the AI, which people have been complaining about since GT1, is still going to suck?
thats aimed at any idiots who took the p1ss out of the apparent mass effect delay
What does Mass Effect have to do with this?Has was it push back?When it suppose to come out in 2008 anyway?Was there a solid date? No there was not
The whole "car makers don't want to see their cars trashed" thing worked with GT3 but, now we're seeing games like Forza do it. Maybe it's because it's too much work:( It's a shame!
GT5 has many more cars, and they have to get mroe permissions form the Car makers.Thats really tedious,
Yes, GT5 has tons more cars. Like 50 different Evos, 45 different Skylines, 37 different Imprezas... oh, and a Model T that you can't race nor can you buy any parts whatsoever for. Now- Is GT going to have Lamborghini?
That's still no excuse. Anything related to making a game can be tedious. Car damage should be standard by now. I do think, however, that the car manufacturers have a say in the matter. In Forza 2's case, the lack of cosmetic damage most likely has to do with the manufacturers say. And notice how in both Forza and GT, cars won't roll. It's a shame, but nobody seems to want to give a player the "misconception" that a car can flip over to a certain degree.
Sorry for the Sony pic, before i had a chance to change it the story got approved. Im dissapointed about the damage news. Having played Forza2, you require an extra element of concentration when playing as not to total your car. Who know this maybe bullsh!t of course. If Forza can do it then why not GT? If no visible damage occurs then i would still like "feel" as though your car has been damaged, be it in speed, loss of stearing, transmission probs, stuck gears etc etc.
They are just working on improving the product. But Sony's PS3 does need some killer games right now.
Thats what they should be focusing right now. The seem to be focusing on the future. Give attention to now like 50% and the Future 50%. It look more like 85% future and 15% nowadays. They should make ps3 users feel like they have purchased something worthwhiled..but lets be real we havn't had much love from them lately (game wise though). But lets not fuss to much..there are still months ahead.
Time will tell if the wait is going to pay off. I agree 100% why bicker over nothing we can actually control.
im fine with the delay. Gran Turismo needs to be miles better than Forza so delaying helps. By the time GT5 finally releases, PS3 probably be successful then. @THAMMER1: read my comment properly, i said "needs" and "probably". I didnt say " will be" or "forza will be doomed"
Sorry miss read your post. good day
interesting we may never be able to compare Forza-PGR and GT in terms of Graphics, I am sure Forza 3 and PGR 5 are coming the very next year, as for gameplay that is a very different matter
A GT5 release sooner would go a long way in helping PS3 sales. Grand Turismo is one of Sony's premier franchises, and deservedly so. A late 2008 release will be too late. How much more waiting can PS3 gamers---and the general gaming public handle? As stated by others, Sony NEEDS its big titles NOW! I hope E3 brings some positive news for Sony 'gearheads.'
I have been hanging on to hear about a good sports or racing game that is out or coming out soon before I invest in a PS3. I have played forza motorsport 2 and it's a pretty sweet game. With the news that it is going to be pushed back (most likely), and that it won't even have damage, which is well done (and the innovative driving line to make the game accessible to all players in FM2) then I am rethinking my purchase. PLEASE SONY DO SOMETHING TO MAKE ME CHANGE MY MIND!
This is not bad news for me. It's good to have awesome titles in the pipeline at all time. This fall is awesome. In the spring we know Metal Gear and Final Fantasy is coming. Fall 2008 gotta have some blockbusters as well. These big titles takes so long to make. Would make no sense releasing them all to close to each other.
to tell you the truth i was only expecting a jap release this year with it coming to the states next summer but this could mean that by laye next year Japan gets it and US gets in summer 2009... that would greatly suck for us.. in all honesty i dont want them pulling at GT4 moble on us like they did with the PSP... in all honesty they better get that thing out this year for japan or if not give us a worldwide release late next year. oh well good things happen to those who wait. if all there second gen title are so high profile then christmas 08 will be even bigger than this year..especially if resistance 2 comes to release, i'm certain that ted price and his team is working on restsance 2 in pre production phase right now.
