GT5 finally nails sense of speed

Patrick Steen of PSUNI: Gran Turismo, and racing simulators in general, have struggled to nail the sense of speed so common in arcade racing games and real-life racing. Even Gran Turismo 5 didn’t seem to have made progress in this area, but the latest footage puts this issue to bed.

agreed, this game will be huge!

shayol33t2650d ago

Oh god. Oh god! OH GOD!

TIME, it must go faster.

In all honesty though, this game has to come out ASAP! Been waiting on it for years, as im sure all of you have :)

Trey_4_life2650d ago

In other news GT5 is so good that it nailed my mom!

Update: she gave consent and enjoyed it!

jjohan352650d ago

My Logitech GT wheel yearns for its soulmate...

Tapewurm2650d ago

This game should be well worth the wait.

Faztkiller2650d ago

GT5 will probably be my GOTY or LBP2
Don't think a racing game has ever won goty but GT5 would be the one to do it

ShinMaster2650d ago

LBP2, GT5 or GOWIII! It is very hard to choose.
LBP and GOW have gotten the GOTY award before, so in all fairness I'd have to let GT5 take it :)

Hanif-8762650d ago

This is definitely a better Gran Turismo 5 than what we'd of gotten in 2009. I can say that the wait is definitely gonna be worth it, i say let perfection take its coarse :-)

sikbeta2650d ago (Edited 2650d ago )

finally?? OK... GT5 Will be BEAST!

Dirk Benedict2650d ago

you and me both, brother. this is my most anticipated game of all time and believe me......... i will be using the 3d, head tracking and all for this already deemed-masterpiece.

this is the future of gaming right here.

MNicholas2650d ago

The arcadey "sense of speed" in that video comes from the shaking of the camera. Just watch the edges of the TV relative to the border of the video.

No real sim will have such exaggerated shaking and GT5 appears to be a pretty damned good sim.

UnwanteDreamz2650d ago (Edited 2650d ago )

I looked at what you are talking about and I don't see any shaking that could not be attributed to high speeds and cornering.

You might not see camera shake in your sims but you get it inside a race car. No real race car could go that fast break that hard not have some shake.

corneliuscrust2649d ago (Edited 2649d ago )

there is some speed shake, but the camera guy is doing most of it

main thing is, who cares!@

THIS GAME IS GOING TO BE HUGE! Look at it:D:D:D Can't wait.

Dude.. get the console and 10 games... then sell it off..

get a G27 racing wheel.. even better.

zeeshan2650d ago

Improving perfection was something that I thought was not possible. GT5 has me stand corrected!

hennessey862650d ago

the sounds of the engine and tyres still dont sound right that was supposed to be a lexus race car but it sounded more like a dyson hoover it looks amazing though

Heisenberg2650d ago

You can almost feel the wind shaking the car. I think all the detailed shadows on the road help the illusion of speed tremendously as well. Add the top notch engine sound revving on a sweet system with a sub, playing on a 1080p screen, maybe some 3D action down the road... There'll be no reason for me to take out my Ferrari anymore.

skwidd2650d ago

it does seem faster or at least the sense of speed is faster. I was surprised looking at the video as it looked pretty darn fast at just 150m/h which by GT standards still feels slow. However, this particular track adds to the sense because it's a narrower street and has lots of objects (trees) right next to the road which defintely helps in making you feel objects whizzing by you. Also, the camcorder was shaking which i think gave the illusion of superspeed. I thought that was cool and maybe they should include that in the future (GT6?) if it doesn't cause headaches.

sniper-squeak2650d ago (Edited 2650d ago )

This will be the fastest selling game in history...

Until GT6 comes out!


corneliuscrust2649d ago

FTW. Those guys are maniacs.

likedamaster2650d ago

I'm curious about this because it seemed the same to me. How bout showing a video comparison in 3rd person?

Giriath2650d ago

I don't really think the sense of speed has changed. More that there are a lot of in car and behind car camera angle videos. There's also a lot more details on the sides of the track. I didn't think there really was a problem with the sense of speed to begin with. In car and front camera felt pretty accurate to me.

Old Greg2649d ago

lol. i'd like to place a bet that this will launch 1stQuarter 2011.

sense of speed was never an issue for me in the previous games though it will be interesting to see how they did it
