Gran Turismo 5 3D support has been confirmed by Sony, and according to the titles US producer, implementing the technology was "a really tough job" for the programmers.
I don't really care about 3D just bring out GT 5 soon can't wait any longer
Yep, I mean if the long delay was to implement 3D, then I'd prefer them to release it without the tech. We've been waiting a long, long time for GT5 now.
Hey Polyphony is working hard at the game. Anything they do deserves credit. I doubt adding 3D was any reason for a delay. But even if it was, you can be assured that it's worth it. Think about it, there's around 1000 or more cars in the game. Every detail has to be perfect in GT5 including exterior and interior of the cars, the numerous tracks, online modes, and everything else. People from Polyphony even travel half way across the world just to take pictures of the cars so they can get every detail right. When this game comes out, it will have been worth the long wait.
naw even if it was delayed do to 3D, you have to think now what they have added. They have said that they were working on full damage for every car, also possibly a weather cycle. So its more then just 3D
take all the time u need poly to make the greatest racing game ever..... sorry gt3 aspec... i think gt5 will pass it up for the greatest racing game .... let alone simulator
"...but our guys are brilliant and they're accomplishing it." Nice! 3D is tough for such a great looking game, but they're actually accomplishing it.
Yeah, PD should just release the game because you want it, pffft. What is wrong with you people?
Is there anything this game doesn't have?
GT5 was already well set for 3D really. Running 1280 x 1080 off the bat means there is room to wiggle before they even have to reduce the resolution below 1280 x 720 to make 3D work. I expect GT5 to be one of the best looking 3D titles, which should still maintain a HD resolution.
programming games is a b!tch (I'm going to college to become a game programmer). So not only are they programming a REAL LIFE SIM racer but they are also implementing 3D which I'm learning now at it is really F*$%ing hard to program. I have nothing but respect for the programmers at PD. They must be absolute geniuses to be able to do all of this programming in only like what 5 years?
that is my name for it. It is taking way to long and all these set backs may lead to something memorable in the end but then what will they have left over for GT6? I have about given up on this game and knew damn well it wouldnt get released until sony was ready (meaning never) or when 3D was the "in thing" all over again. They could have released the game and added 3d via dlc later. The "definitive racing sim" has more or less turned into the "definitive waiting sim". edit: im sorry about that. i am having a bad day. I am sure their effort will be really well worth it. I am just a bit let down by it having been pushed back and pushed back and...well you get the idea.
now there implementing 3d ino the game?? great another 6 month delay.
The question is, what is being sacrificed when 3D is running? It's awesome that they're doing it, but you will lose something because 3D is a resource hog. But what?
1080p, 60fps, 1000 cars, head tracking and now 3D...they are really pushing it!
Does this game ever stop getting better??? There will absolutely be no reason to make another one this gen! What the Hell else could they put in it. I haven't even really liked GT since GT2, but I have no choice but to buy this game! If they sell this for $60, it is gonna make most games look bad for charging $60. I think the games I am willing to stomach a $60 pricetag on, just got significantly smaller.
Some people may not understand something: it's much easier to work an unfinished game and fit 3D in, that trying to retrofit the damn thing. And another thing: If you read DF analysis of PS3 3D early implementation, MotorStorm devels said this: "First of all we took our split-screen mode... effectively, 3D is very much like making a split-screen game," Benson reveals. "It's two views in one world, so let's just put the two cameras on the one player." This will sound extremely unlikely but PD by working in the GT5 3D implementation could end up with a splitscreen capable game.
PS3 isn't the only thing that only does everything. PS3, it only does games that only do everything!
about time the game came out .. but i really appriciate what sony is trying to do with gt5 and making it the best racing game ever made... and i am sure it will accomplish it and have all teh wistles and bells that is needed.. but i really would like to see the game out finally... but in any case bravo for the technical achievement and please bring the game out its been long
I can't wait to play this game in 3-d. Played wipeout and MS:PR in 3-d, total immersion! whoever said "its useless, it gives motion sickness...but but the downscales... bu bu but the low framerate..." is BSing and need to visit the closest Sony Style store that dislpay 3-d.
you guys seriously need to redefine what a delay means...the game has been in production for 5 years...it hasnt been delayed....there hasnt been a release date other than the one for Japan
Sony needs a way to sell their 3D TVs. So we get to wait forever for the game to come out so Sony can sell more than 7 TVs.
I've seen some videos and read a few articles about the extreme lengths the Devs go through to get every detail perfect in this game. Detail isn't a detailed enough word to detail the detail in this game. Note to self: The reply button only works if you actually click it.
"Detail isn't a detailed enough word to detail the detail in this game." You're right. If detail isn't a detailed enough word, then what word is detailed enough to explain the detail in this precisely detailed game?....detail Yep the reply button works when you click it...see? :-P
Maybe should have spent more time on damage =S
Considering the most we've seen so far was a few minutes of 1 car slowly bumping into a few walls, on an unfinished damage model about 6 months ago, how can you imply that the damage model isn't good enough?
...Yamauchi said that not every car will have damage. Just the high end cars will have damage because it takes so long to impliment it to the cars and they want to have to most cars out of all the GT games in GT5.
actually what he said was that all cars would have damage, production cars would have similar damage system to forza with the race and rally cars having a better damage model.
I actually thought he said all cars have damage but only 100 or so will have INTERIOR damage. Either way, I'm excited to see the damage when it's finalized.
thats actually true he did say that there would be some interior damage, but defo damage to all cars with better damage on rally and race cars, woot woot, i can not wait to get my teeth into this game, AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
But instead of implementing it now, couldn't they release a patch or something later? Or not at all.... I'm already imagining the titles of the news in some month: "GT5 delayed, 3D optimization" or "GT5 next year, due to the 3D implementation" or those things. I really hope it's not like that and they release it THIS year....
Agreed, this game needs releaseing first and then adding these little tweaks later. People with 3D capable TV's are going to be in the minority for a long time so they should cater to the rest of us first.
They've spent long enough it will be 4D by the time the games finished.
hurrr you're a durrr i would have accepted it (paid for it?) as an addon
Too many little features in this game like PSP rear view mirrors, PSeye headtracking, now 3D Just release the game already and patch this kind of stuff in later !
whoa wait a minute im actually gonna be able to use my psp for something again.
PSP rear view mirror? Tell me you're joking!
In fact, it isn't even a report. It is pure laziness, just a few lines and then whack it out quicker than anyone else can because they like to write more than 3 words! Poor journalism at it's worst!
Can't wait to see 3D in action for GT5.
They shouldn't have bothered then. It's not like anyone will use it and/or really cares.
Within a few months the majority of decent HDTVs will support 3D, with GT5 releasing around the end of the year, when many people pick up new TVs I'm sure there will be plenty of people with the option to try it out. All being well, I'll be one of them.
I am going to buy a new TV soon. Bet your money it will be 3D ready...
I'm with you Pennywise. I really like 3D and I think gaming in 3D is going to be great.
I'll have to wait til my old one die or 3d glasses cost $99.
People will buy 3DTV's just to play GT5 in 3D! Sony's smarter than I thought... and that's saying quite a lot!
I get a feeling Sony are going to sacrifice this game for pushing 3D gaming... Not sure how I feel about that. I would like to experience it in 3D, if they could keep the resolution HD and decent AA.... if not, never mind, the sensation of speed is amazing as it is.
You can watch the interview here http://www.videogameszone.d... Doesnt sound like their sacrificing anything, just giving you extra options. He talks about how he thinks 3D benefits the game and how it improves your driving foresight and racing line etc It's a good interview, although think the dude must of been giving them all day, he's not overly enthusiastic.
I prefer that Polyphony Digital takes as much time as they need. I loathe this generation where Developers are allowed to publish half assed games because they have the patching and DLCs excuses. It is mind boggling how people buys content that should already be in the game in the first place. So... If they release the game now, you will probably see: $10 for extra 2 tracks! 2 new cars! $5 For 3D in selected cars!! $10 For damage models! I hope that will never happen, but the more and more developers are shifting towards that.... Would you want that? I would rather wait for perfection.
I get the feeling they really want this game to be perfection. Utilizing all available tech. I think they want this to be more than a game, they want it to show what PD and Sony can do that others can't. I'd rather have devs work hard and make something really worth my 60 bucks then pump games out quickly. I think this game will be the show stopper at E3.
3D is just a fad, it holds no real value and the glasses make people look like a d1ck
Yeah Wii was a fad too.
With all the content in this game, will it come on more than 1 Blu Ray?
The wii still is a Fad, unless you're fat, 70 years old or people who still find mario cool
Do you know what a fad is? A fad is something that has temporary attention and eventually goes away with time, usually in a short amount. The Wii is still here since launch and is kicking both PS3's and 360's asses.
Did bellbottoms disappear in a year? Fads can last longer than a year.
to upgrade to a 3d TV. I will buy 1 together with GT5 when it releases. Edit: Peeps. 1800 is about the same amount of money i spent 3 1/2 years ago to buy a 42 inch 1080p Samsung.
well u have a lot more money to spend than me lol http://www.currys.co.uk/gbu...
I am in no way a rich person but i know value when i see it. 1800 pounds is alot of money but it will be worth it for me personally. That i am sure of. My PS3 and HD TV were expensive but they have given me hundreds of hours of top notch entertainment. I am honestly am surprise that they are not that more expensive considering the brand and the newness of the tech. I might actually buy 1 sooner rather than later.
i do agree when it's a 40" tv etc, however i think the main problem with 3D is it's uncertain whether it will take off properly and become a standard. sd-hd you knew buying a hd would be worth it, because even if hd films didn't take off both the 360 and ps3 would be supporting HD for a good 5+ years
I think the real barrier will be the glasses. Price wise its not that expensive and i really do believe it will come down fast. If it was around 3k to 4k then these TV's will never take off. Content wise both the movie and to some extent the gaming industry in Sony have lend their support which is really important as content is always key as we have seen with the HD format war. These 3d TV are just the first step. later on we will see glassless 3d TV which i think is the near future then eventually holographic further down the line. I think Blu-ray and HD in general hasen't done much which i think is the reason why the movie industry in particular has been very supportive of 3d. I get the general feeling that alot of people are even happy with upscaled DVD. Having 3d is something more than just HD and i think the movie industry are banking on this to increase revenue for the foreseeable future. There has been alot of talk about dwindling DVD sales and blu-ray not exactly making up the difference. 3d Blu-ray might change that. Regardless of weather it becomes standard or not which i think it will. I still want to get one for 3d movie and game content let alone 3d TV channels. They are not that more expensive that i really don't care if it ends up becoming just another 1080p flat panel for my room.
i would rather wait a few years because we all know they will make some feature in a few months that improve image quality or something
it wont be missing a thing Even the 3D option, that is just mind blowing. Is this game going for the $60 tag? amazing value in one sweeet BluRay disc This game will bring so much joy to many of us, cant wait (but i have to lol)
i don't really see the point tbh. a lot of ppl are saying there will be more 3d tv's available by the time GT5 releases, but the fact is it will be a very small majority who use this option, mainly because the cost of 3d tv's is ridiculous. even if i had money to burn i'm not sure i'd consider a 3d tv in the near future unless something drastic happnes overnight meaning 3d suddenly becomes the standard.
Is for Sony to have a flagship title to go along with the PS3+3D Bravis combo. They have spent over $60 million on this game, and they will do their best to get maximum profits. Im not a fan of 3D, but to see this juggernaut adding 3D is impressive Edit $200 more for a #d TV is definetely attarctive, and with 3D movies becoming a hot topic, 3DTV might have instant success, since price is not an issue. The only thing that can kill it is lack of interest from the public
because 3d TV will basically use the same technology as that has been used in HD sets. Basically 120 HZ so that they have two images foe each eye. 3d backers have been quite bold and confident about it. I think 3d TV will be adopted alot faster than HD sets because of this. Prices will come down much faster than compare to HD. Panasonic reps quoted that it will cost about 200-400 more than normal HD sets. To me that is pretty good. @gamingisnotacrime. GT5P sold about 4 million. I think that's more than 60 million i think.
but still GT5 in 3D is a flagship title, a PS3 and 3D TV seller
Yes i know. Sony since stinger took over the top job has been doing his best to make sure there are synegies between Sony division. PS being as popular they are has been used alot to promote other electronics sections products first with Blu-ray and now 3d TV. Its a smart move that benefits all. Sony if they are serious with 3d gaming must show that they are indeed serious by providing top notch 3d gaming expereince. There is no better way to do that than having your biggest title support 3d. I think there are also rumors that KZ3 will be in 3d. 3d will be a bigger step compare to SD to HD. I think the entertainment industries understands this and why they have been really supportive of 3d HD.
The KZ3 in 3D rumors are strong If that is done the right way, 3D gaming has a bright future Not bad for a 4 year old console that launched when 3D was a basement secret :) Kudos to Stinger for making the PS brand a SONY brand, now they can push their goodies through PS products and im loving it lol
Its fantastic, I thought the tv's would be more expensive - they are launching at the same price I paid for my 42" HD LCD a few years ago - so now when I am ready to renew I will no doubt be looking at a 3D plasma - great stuff
maintain the quality that Gran Turismo has been known for; beautiful and pushing the hardware limits, and still implementing the 3D aspect of it which is processing two pictures at the same time. That was a really tough job for our programmers, but our guys are brilliant and they're accomplishing it." wow that is scary good. adding 3D WITHOUT having to downgrade the graphics
that whole downgrading the graphics thing was just your usual blown out of proportion N4G story, xbox fanboys getting all excited because there was an opportunity to knock something playstation related again
