Sony releases a new batch of visually impressive Gran Turismo 5 Prologue screenshots.
...words can't describe this
If this has forza like physic's or better then ill be in racing heaven.
The GT4 physics were terrible, the developer explained in a recent interview that they were starting from scratch with the driving physics. It should be possible to drift and actually do a burnout in GT5 lol.
don't get it twisted GT is the benchmark...not the other way around. It's funny how people refer to forza as the pinnacle of race sims, when in actuality GT is what forza wants to be when it grows up.
-Physics? Hell no
-Online multiplayer? Hell no
-Customisation? Hell no
-Damage? HEEEELLL NOOO
So whats your point dumbass!!
Truth is i havent got things twisted, the physics is GT is no where
Find me one review that says GT has better physics than forza just one review and ill eat my words.
Anyway like i said before, if GT5 has physics like forza or better then it should be the best racing sim.
I'm sure my comments got your riled up enough to call me a dumb ass..it's ok little guy it's just a game. No need for personal attacks, especially when you expect people to see your point. GT is and will always be the benchmark for racing sims..not because it has unrealistic body damage (forza), or 8 person multiplayer (weak sauce), or even rice rocket super book shelf spoilers/ 20" spinners/ and hello kitty stickers. It is the benchmark because it is pure racing simulation without any of the clutter. Without GT there would be no forza, there would be no PGR..SO DON'T GET IT TWISTED. Disagree all you want, but it is the truth
You notice how I was able to get my point across without calling you a name?
When the first GT was released it was the best console racing sim, there nothing else like it. therefore GT was the benchmark for racing sims on consoles.
GT remained the best until forza came along and did everything better than GT4. Therefore GT was no longer the benchmark becasue forza raised that bar, so that makes forza the benchmark racing sim.
Now we have forza 2 which raised that benchmark even higher to set a new benchmark which GT5 neeeds to match or surpass.
Now how hard was that to understand?
You are entitled to your opinion, as am I. Seeing as how I have "Sony goggles" on..laff. I really won't understand. I'm sure there are those who will agree or disagree. But in the end, my comment still holds true..without GT there would be no Forza or PGR. We could get technical on the subject and draw out a long pointless internet fight...but whats the point of that? GT:HD a tech demo using the GT4 engine made a mockery of a full fledge Forza 2 game..now that is not hard to understand.
Theres no point try to talk the truth to someone whos got sony tatooed on their forehead.
We are entitled to our own opinions but the difference is that all the reviews of the gaming websites share my opinion.
Can you find me one review which states GT is a better sim than forza??
GT5 is looking promising hopefully it will surpass forza 2 in every way, which will then force turn10 to deliver with forza 3 and so on.
I know a game should be about gameplay first, but when a game looks as good as this... what can you say? Absolutly amazing, Polyphony never cease to amaze me. if this kinda quality repats through ever area of the game, it will be system seller (the final GT5 of course)
i can find word for it look to real in my mind i am still pulling my jaw from the flor... :-))
Its not gameplay but its the in game engine
Yeah, i think it will be a background menu screen, all in engine of course.
HOLY SH!T !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Look at the detail in the pitlane garage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Unbelivable, it looks amazing
Looking incredible - best car shaders in any game - and the environments are looking great. Get the mirrors looking good and it'll be photorealism.
Even if the mirrors stay as they are, i won`t be upset! Just look at the detail!!! 16 cars on track!! this is gonna be nuts!!!!
I was saying for photorealism :) Being this close to photorealism is unreachable by any other dev, so I'm not worried :)
Just think how many man hours must have gone into getting the interiors to look that good.
I was reading a history of GT article on GamesRadar, and one of the facts that stuck with me was that a single car in GT5 has more polygons than were in the entire GT1 game. Shows you how far they have come in 10 years don't it? It's why realistic damage modeling would be so difficult in a game with this much detail
Yet another must have PS3 game.
FANTASTIC GRAPHICS ! ! ! Probably the best I've ever seen! I just hope this won't transform into yet another "PS3 vs Xbox 360" stupid comparisons.
Come on look at this game, what self respecting person is gonna do that. Besides what game would the put up against it?
See my point? It just wouldn't make sense they chose their battles wisely...
then they are obviously retarded
I'D LIKE TO SEE theMART ON THIS THREAD, SEE WHAT HE THINKS OF GT5'S GRAPHICS
I hope that in the final version there will be an option to roll down the window and flip someone off.
Gotta buy a HDTV and fast!
what we gonna see in GT6 ?
i think its the END .
This is going to be the reason I buy a ps3. Just for the graphics, my graphics whoreness is tingling over this lol.
To say it looks incredible is an understatement, either way, I hope that they get fairly close to Forza's Physics and get online play nailed then it really could be a car drivers perfect game. Full stop!
When it looks this good, I might even forgive the Polyphonic for excluding photorealistic crashes. Fingers crossed tho! Even if its visibly not noticable, a decent looking crash rather then bouncing off walls and sliding around corners walls would help :P

100% what im thinking!!!!! good comments.
...and the fact its all headed for the PS3 at 60fps, 1080p (at least thats how it is at the moment) stuns even more.
Couple this with intensive physics and it seems strange other games get around 30fps (although its not hard to figure out your own answers after this sort of benchmark has been set)
Hopefully all this media means there is the prologue realease fairly soon(ish).
looks great, but I'll hold off final judgement until I see the game in motion on my (or my friends0 tv. I saw some preatty amazing looking screen shots and vids of PGR3 in 2005, but the game didn't look nearly as good on my screen (I don't have a crap tv if thats what your gonna say)
I am drooling real bad here, this is really stunning, the lighting and car models are amazing, the background outside of the restaurant is unbelievable, in car looks reallt impressive, the first timei've said wow in a while but round of applause for Pulyphonic I don't mind waiting for quality like this!
No competition now nor later..follow the leader
1. Online play - make sure it exists!!!!
2. The in-game trees. Yep, they look shyte.
Everything else is absolutely perect though...
@NOVAL --- I WASN'T DISSIN THE GAME, IT LOOKS EXCELLENT, BUT THEY ANNOUNCED ONLINE FOR GT4 AND IT NEVER HAPPENED, AND I THINK THE GRAPHICS ARE OUTSTANDING - BUT THE AWFUL TREES STAND OUT IN A BAD WAY
yes because trees matter so much when the game revolves around racing cars. This isn't tree hugging 5 prologue..
and they have confirmed online multi-player, 12-16 cars.
EDIT: It is apparent that you were not dissing the game. I just wanted to point out that trees should be the least of your worries.
threes are the $hit in forza 2?
judging by this screenshot overall graphics don't come close at all and... does the threes look amazing? NU UH, but hey maybe they screwed most game graphics trying to get a perfect three image!! xD sadly just ended up looking like a PS2 game
I don't think anyone here knows what the hell you are talking about? I don't think you know what you're talking about. Does three = tree? Overall graphics of what don't come close? I think I just killed a couple million brain cells trying to comprehend your comment.
These are the best graphics I've ever seen in any game. That picture of the Benz in the town square is beyond words. Photo-realistic graphics have finally been achieved in a game.
I came alil when i saw the INGAME co(kpit view. The level of detail is brain numbing. We say this game is gonna sell alot of PS3 but hell with rich detail like this it's gonna sell alot of cars too. No wonder car manufactures love Sony and Polyphoney so much this is a perfect show piece.
GT is my favourate series PERIOD and with these newly released shots it's safe to say the King still has his crown.
Very very good work Polyphoney Digital.
The scene in the plaza is the photo mode, like in GT4. The car is in game, the background is not. If you forgot what photo mode is, it's where you can move the car and camera around a scene.
All hail the benchmark, all hail GranTurismo... All condemn the jealous ones, all blast the competition...
they got the graphics down that for dan sure.
Damn impressive.Perhaps a little unrealistic regarding the colours on the cars(a little too much) and there appears to be zero jaggies which considering i always see a ton of them(ridge Racer for example) when looking at PS3 games on an HDTV , makes me wonder if it will indeed look as jag free as the pics.This gen certainly doesn't look to have obliterated them which doesn't bother me quite honestly but if we are honest ,is GT5 not going to have them like this pic suggests.
Anyhow this still looks like being the best car graphics yet.
