PS3Center's Grumpy Gamer, Erik Heyl takes a look at the downfall of Duke Nukem and how its problems can help other developers.
Listen up Kazunori Yamauchi!
Lol true, but GT5 is coming this year definitely. Kaz is just a perfectionist and wants to make GT definitive, he hasn't changed engines etc. like 3D realms did so many times.
Actually, GT5 has changed engines. GTHD Concept? That was going to be GT5 before they scrapped GT4 HD engine and started fresh, that's why it's taking so long. Even GT5P to GT5 has had numerous engine enhancements.
Hmm...guess you do learn something new everyday. I thought it was taking ages because of the high-poly modelling and damage modelling that they were doing this time around. Anyway, whatever the case may be, I can't wait til GT5 releases, my favourite racing series by far.
The GT4 HD engine has nothing to do with GT5. They just scrapped the HD game to focus on the actual GT5 game.
Yeah "Vision Gran Turismo", which was supposed to be "Gran Turismo 5". But was scrapped.
Sony is not so stupid as to let a developer just consume their money for over a decade without good progress. Plus, Polyphony Digital made some money for Sony WHILE making GT5 in the form of Prologue. By the way, where's my Omega Boost 2?
Yeah, building an engine from scratch must of killed PD. I cant imagine the effort, time, and money that went into that piece of tech. They could have easily got away with a GT4 HD engine too.
If they had gone with the GT4 HD engine then we would have a game that looks only marginally better than Forza 3. Polyphony Digital love being the best so new engine it was.
i don't get it, What GT4 HD engine you are talkin about ? There was no GT4HD engine or Vision engine or any other engine thatn prologue/GT5. GT4 engine can't be used to do quick GT4 in HD for PS3. And all materials are on same engine with is constantly upgrading with development..
When Vision Gran Turismo was announced at E3 2006, they were planning to launch it with it being a "download what you want" set up before "Gran Turismo" proper came out. Vision Gran Turismo was a sequel, but it was meant to be a quick launch to tide people over to, what is now, GT5. They scrapped this plan, because the plan was stupid and it was running on an old engine that wasn't delivering the results they wanted. They released Gran Turismo HD Concept, which was running on that engine, the same engine GT4 was running on, as a demo and, namely, a concept of what Gran Turismo HD would have been. Remember, an engine is just the bare bones, it can be tweaked and changed and, in this case, a new coat of paint and HD resolutions on GT4 made GTHD.
A rather decent written article that actually brought up a good topic that I really didn't pay attention too.
Just like GT1, GT5 is a completely new engine designed from the ground up. Future installments of GT won't take many years to make. The engine is future proofed for another 4 or 5 GT games.
GT5's case is very different from that of DNF. GT5 has is Sony's main course for the PS3 and no matter what, Sony is going to release it. The game will either be out in late 2010 or early 2011.
I'm betting they will release it this Autumn/Fall and it will be excellent! I didn't mean to imply that I think it will be vaporware, which I think is the reason so many people disagreed? I actually just bought a logitech G27 just for this game in the good faith that it will release in the next 6-9 months. Until then I have prologue to practice with :) Anyone know if Blur, Slit second or Mod nation supports logitech wheels? GT5 will shift a fluff load of PS3 consoles here in the UK thats for sure.
Looks like N4G would be dead without news and articles about PlayStation 3.
amen lol. whether it's in love or hate, all everybody does is talk about sony.
You have a very strong point. :)
Don't take FOREVER to make a game.........
And What is this game has to do with the ps3 developers.
"What PS3 Devs could've taught the Duke Nukem Forever Devs" would be a more fitting headline.
