I'm really excited to use the steering wheel i recently got to use with this game. First time i'll have used it with a full GT game. I used it with that GT5 time trial demo and the difference is a-maz-ing. It's how the game is meant to be played. But i have to get a seat or something to clamp the wheel on cos it rocks about too much at the moment. I really recommend people to get a wheel for the game though, if you like GT enough. It completely changes the experience, to how its meant to be played. Even driving down a straight, you feel the wheel pulling against you, fighting you...its wicked

If you need an idea for your driving setup. I made one and it cost me about 15$ of wood and it works great. I can sit on my couch and feel like i'm in a car. Pretty cool!

Greywulf2945d ago

Feels really natural.I thought it was stupid at first, but man it does help the immersion.

You're right about the Wheel being the only real way to play it, personal opinion. Although there are people that can kick sweet ass with the DS3(as they were top on the leader board) I'd think it has to do with some sort of freakish response time. I'm just slower with the DS3. The wheel feels more responsible of an input, considering you're driving a car.

G25, G27, Fanatec?
I have a G27 and a Fanatec 911 S.
Can't wait to try them both on GT5. It's made for the Logitech wheel so I'm guessing it will edge out the Fanatec but I am going to have a blast finding out.

Deathracer2945d ago

Na, I'm going to go with LBP2 as GOTY.

cobraagent2945d ago

Another excellent game!!! I choose GT5 overall because i have been waiting for half a decade... November can't come soon enough

Spaghett2945d ago

No, that highly prestigious tile will be presented to Reach, the most deserving of it by far.

raztad2945d ago (Edited 2945d ago )


Reach wont be GOTY.


I have to agree with you. LBP2 is way too innovative not to be GOTY.

This is mindblowing:

"The steering wheel is more than enough to make Gran Turismo 5 stand out in terms of realism, but Sony literally went the extra mile by adding a whole new dimension. You have the option to race in 3-D in GT5, and while it does take a little getting used to (especially with Sony’s “fancy” glasses), the experience is glorious. Objects look much more realistic in 3-D, and the car models, the Ford GT and Chevy Camaro in this case, were almost to the point that you could reach out and touch them"

Over time people will look back and say: how the heck we were playing games in 2D before? Adding Z-axis is full of win. Time for saving for that 3D set.

GT5 is one of those games that will keep players busy for a very long time. I know for sure that this game will be quenching my driving thirst for many years to come.
With GT5 there is no need for any other racing game with constant sequals and minor upgrades.

Polyphany digital, you've done it again.

I have to admit something;

Well, I've never really been a fan of driving games! Even when I was younger my friend tried to make me play the original GT game but I wouldn't have it, but wow do I regret that now.

GT5 looks more impressive than I could ever imagine, but it's not just the visuals...the game packs more features than I've ever seen before!

Article is right, November 2nd can't get here soon enough.

Even people who don't normally enjoy racing games can hop on in and enjoy a GT game. I personally believe that it has to do with the collection aspect. Racing itself may be unappealing to some people, but I'll be damned if there is a single person in the world that doesn't enjoy collecting things, especially things as shiny, interactive, and beautiful as cars! It really is more than just a racing game. :D

PirateThom2945d ago

Yeah, the collection is a big thing for me but, my favourite aspect, is the precision driving required for the licence tests.

I've got a soft spot for drifting as well. Time trials as well.

Racing, funny enough, is my least favourite aspect.

bubbles to all gt suporters, this is gona be the first truely next gen racing game out, its actually taking full advantage of the bluray and PS3 which very few games have done this gen, the content in this game alone is worth 3 games easy, is it any wonder it has taken them almost 5 years to make, I cant thank PD enough for the attention to detail and content that they are providing for me, its a def day 1 and limited ed for me.

skip2mylou2945d ago
