Gran Turismo 5: A Disappointment?

GamePlayBook counters Gofanboy's point that Gran Turismo 5 could be a "disappointment", because, well, it simply won't be.

don't borther. The writers over at gofanboy make immature remarks and poorly written articles just for the hits. GT5 sales will prove them wrong, not that they ever believed that GT5 would fail. Anyway, there should be a filter that changes a story from pending to failed immediately if it comes from gofanboy.com

Nike2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

Agreed. Gofanboy's article was poorly researched and written. And hey, no matter how you look at it, a game that's hotly anticipated, that's coming off a series that's sold 50+ million units worldwide, and is considered the most realistic racing simulator of all time can't JUST FAIL BEFORE IT'S EVEN RELEASED (forget failing at all).

@disagrees: So it can? Seriously?

zootang2717d ago

Gran Turismo 5 Prologue has shipped 3.94 million copies worldwide

That is just the Demo!

OSU_Gamer2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

@zootang

Ill start buy saying GT5 is day one for me and will be fantastic.

Buuuuttt GT5P was a lot more than a demo. 70 cars (including tuned cars), 6 tracks, 12 layouts is more than a demo.

No demo is listed at $26.54 on Amazon 2 years after release.

Edit: Either way this article bashing GT5 is irrelevant and dumb.

SeanRL2717d ago

Demos don't cost $60....

zootang2717d ago

It was a Demo!

That i play at least once a week with my G25! Love it!

ExplosionSauce2717d ago

Prologue wasn't $60, it was 40.

so many fakeboys these days eh, psfan999?

I like racing games. GT3 is one of my favorites right up there with forza and even the simplistic fun of an arcade racer like daytona. Yeah I know they dont have very much in common but I like to play different games for different moods.

This game has been in development for a long time. It is obvious that it should garner the same type of attention GT3 did when it was the first next gen GT game to appear on the PS2. Now we have the PS3. We have our expectations of how this game SHOULD be based on all the info that has been released.

Sooooo much hype has/is being built for this game not just because it is a next gen GT but of all the time put into it had better pay off. Lots of cars, lots of tracks, now the inclusion of 3D. Delay after delay and the timing of each coincides with the release of another game that may have shown something that the GT guys hadnt thought of but now they can try and add it in.

It is being proclaimed to be the ultimate driving simulator. We will see when it releases.

Now, the flip side, the ONLY way it could fail is if all the effort went into the details but not the mechanics. A good looking game that plays like crap (and there are plenty of those). Yet, how hard is it to screw up left and right hand turns?

fishd2717d ago

By "delays after delays" you mean the one time that they delayed the game from march 2010 to November 2010,amiright?

randomwiz2717d ago

"the ONLY way it could fail is if all the effort went into the details but not the mechanics."

if thats the ONLY way it could fail, then it's impossible for the game to fail, because there's a reason why the GT series is so popular - the mechanics.

GT5 Will Be A HUGE BEAST, It'll Sell Loads and Loads + the Bundles and the Best Thing, GT5 Quality will be Immensely Huge...

darthv722717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

ding ding ding. You understand the hidden nature of my last comment.

have an agree and a bub from me.

AAACE52717d ago

Passing judgement on a game before it is even released? That's original! No one will know how good this game is until it is released. But I already know it will sell well, so that comment is really pointless.

The 1st GT, took nearly 5 years to make....so using their "logic" the 1st GT was a failure. I sure hope that GT5 FAILS just like the 1st GT did in both quality, quantity, and sales.

Gamescom will show the full finished game and reveal all of the features....jaws will hit the floor worldwide...and somewhere T10 will be hanging their heads in shame for talking so much shit to the MASTER without knowing what Kazunori really had planned.

Redrum0592717d ago

It's actually very retarded when someone tries to downplay GT5 when GT games have always been successful. GT games have always impressed, never downgraded from previous installments, and have always been more successful (comersially and critically ) then any other racing game out there.
It's obvious that those who downplay this game are those who won't be able to play it.

NYPunkster2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

What garbage.

ExplosionSauce2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

Prologue kept me entertained for a good 3 or so months.
I can see myself spending at least a year on the full GT5!

LilSis2717d ago

forza 3 is way better...
its not just decorachon...man

BubbRubb2717d ago

yo lil sis, i gotta disagree. forza 3 aint got nothin on gt5.

klado2717d ago

Here xbox fanboy, we have a troll trolling sht out on a ps3 article...now agree with him and STFU next time.

chakan2717d ago

Another troll. Don't feed.

Abriael2717d ago

It's obvious that Gofanboy's article was to be placed in between FUD and Damage Control. Paid or not, It's not really important.

Gran Turismo 5 is the most anticipated PS3 title of all times. You can pretty much expect that Microsoft and their most rabid fanboys will do whatever they can in order to downplay it.

Anorexorcist2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

From what I have seen, GT5 is the pinnacle of the Gran Turismo property and overall, with no opposition besides fanboy opposition, Gran Turismo is the pinnacle of the realistic/simulation racing genre as a whole. I don't know what Gameplaybook was smoking, but I do not entirely take their opinion of GT5 as definitive.

TheDCD2717d ago

Well, I'm glad it's not just me. I mean, it'll be a hell of a battle between Forza 3 and GT 5, but that's no reason to call Polyphony's game a frickin' Too Human-like failure. Idiots.

Focker-4202717d ago

It won't be a battle, it'll be a massacre. Forza doesn't stand a chance in hell.

klado2717d ago

Maybe forza 4, but still NOT for bashing, but by what I heard, GT5 are two blurays, main game over 50GB BD, another 50BD for special content, so turn ten would need around 3 to 4 disc to fill up of content, and doubt any racing fan would dare to play a driving game by changing disc, would they.

But don't give a crap about sim though GT has some of my childhood moment with my first ps1, getting the driving license with the 9 lesson, LOL

DigitalAnalog2716d ago (Edited 2716d ago )

Where did you get that information? As far as I'm concerned your so-called "2nd" Blu-ray disc may only exist in special editions (possibly video outtakes of the productions and interviews) other than that, the entire game would only be in 1 Blu-Ray disc. No more, no less.

-End statement

cobraagent2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

All main(not including prologues etc) GT titles have sold more than 10 million and there is no reason for GT5 to be an exception

Tony-A2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

I expect it might sell a little more than GT4 because of NASCAR, but I'm not sure about GT3 (15mil) because it was bundled with PS2s back in the day.

Still, the Prologues sell a ton, too. GT5:P still sold like the other one on PS2 (actually, I think it sold a little more) with a much smaller install base.

massapeal792717d ago

it will not fail but i will do good....

alphakennybody2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

Don't bother with gofanboy nor the recent "article" from forzacentral.com. I mean the guy admitted that he was a 360 fanboy in one his blogpost, that alone should be enough to not take the guy seriously when talk about games on the wii or PS3.

jneul2717d ago

it's ok we know they are all turning ten just like the makers of their precious game forza 3:):)

DERKADER2717d ago (Edited 2717d ago )

Just have a random article with a flame bait title dumping on anything PS3.

And that's writing for fanboys lesson one.
