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
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?
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue has shipped 3.94 million copies worldwide That is just the Demo!
@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.
Demos don't cost $60....
It was a Demo! That i play at least once a week with my G25! Love it!
Prologue wasn't $60, it was 40.
so many fakeboys these days eh, psfan999?
Try 4,840,000 lolz http://www.polyphony.co.jp/...
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?
By "delays after delays" you mean the one time that they delayed the game from march 2010 to November 2010,amiright?
"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...
ding ding ding. You understand the hidden nature of my last comment. have an agree and a bub from me.
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.
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.
Prologue kept me entertained for a good 3 or so months. I can see myself spending at least a year on the full GT5!
forza 3 is way better... its not just decorachon...man
yo lil sis, i gotta disagree. forza 3 aint got nothin on gt5.
Here xbox fanboy, we have a troll trolling sht out on a ps3 article...now agree with him and STFU next time.
Another troll. Don't feed.
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.
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.
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.
It won't be a battle, it'll be a massacre. Forza doesn't stand a chance in hell.
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
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
GT5 will not fail.
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
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.
it will not fail but i will do good....
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.
it's ok we know they are all turning ten just like the makers of their precious game forza 3:):)
Just have a random article with a flame bait title dumping on anything PS3. And that's writing for fanboys lesson one.
I've read this before. DEJA VU ??
The important thing is to have legitimate reasons behind your complaint. Seeing something delayed doesn't automatically mean it will fail. Red Dead Redemption got delayed and guess what? It was still amazing when it came out. I can't wait to see how the Forza/Gran Turismo battle goes later this year. No matter what, we'll be racing in style. :D
i have forza and i will be getting gt5 to.....
GT5 the real driving simulator game is coming out get ready to be owned because GT5 is going to sell 3m in Europe alone, jump out play beyond!!
5 millions GT5P sold, how could GT5 fail ? :/ Will do 8-12 millions.
Day 1 for me.
Me too. I have to get a wheel with pedals and a shifter by then.
I don't think that GT5 will fail. It could be the biggest release on the PS3 yet!!
I'll just stick with the controller. I've never been big on the peripherals.
ill be getting this sh!t early for sure. Day <0.. Not that'll make that much difference but ive been waiting...patiently.
Chance of GT5 failing is less than 1 percent
Chances of it succeeding is over 9000.
haha nice refence, +bubbles for you
chances of failing .00001% chances of bad "journalists" failing 100% chances of t10 crying 100% reaction of everyone else who plays GT5? PRICELESS for everything theirs mastercard
I love how these people jump to say 'Sony will fail' and then stand there watching as they succeed with their big traps shut. I noticed Microsoft never mentions the 'faliure' of the Bluray that they predicted ever again.
Sigh some flamebait this morning.
That's all this site is. I wonder what it would be like if for just 1 day there was only real news and all troll postings were immediately removed. Oh well, a guy can dream.
Truly that is a dream well worth it...but sadly will never come true on this site.
The flame wars on N4G now extend beyond the comments section and the crazy approval system. Now they pit website vs website! Awesome journalism men! We counter your fanboy argument with our own fanboy argument...and call you out on it too! <shakes head & sigh>
Show me a fanboyish argument in this article, otherwise please read it first and then comment The article from gofanboy was full of idiotic remarks, not this one
The mere fact that this article was made to counter said fanboy article is in and of itself a fanboy response. Why is this website feeling the need to respond to an article from another site? It even goes so far as to name the other writer of the article as if to call them out and say "You are wrong!". Well, actually the article does basically say gofanboy is wrong. And that is my point. This is a flame war with articles. Who cares what some other site had to say about the game? Shouldn't gameplaybook.com just be worried about what their readers see on their site and their reactions to their own content? Oh and btw here is a news flash... GT5 could disappoint. I highly doubt it will mind you, but it could. After all this wait, the end product may not live up to the wait. Stranger things have happened.
i really want gt5 to sell ALOTT,but only time will tell if it sells as much as the past gran turismo games,since ps2 has the biggest userbase for a console.
GT3,the best selling game in GT series, mind you ,was released about a year after the launch of PS2 GT4 was released when there was like 100 million PS2s and yet it sold less than GT3
Gt5 will fail when hell gets central air conditioning and pigs fly.
Most Articles that on here that says a game will Fail is doing nothing but Hating on it because They Know How Great it is and just want to Bash on it I would just ignore it Grand Turismo is a AAA Game for PS3 and one of the greatest racing sims Ever Of course GT5 wont FAIL have there been one that havent Besides it have not even come out Yet
getting so bored. Will anything about this game be left to the imagination. We have been given so much info about this game, drip fed for so long that bellies are full and the well is drying up. I dont think I can be any more desensitized to this game. Its taking the fun out of it. Please just stop with the worthless articles and just wait for the game.
i mean jus WOW!
Ferrari 458 Italia - Gran Turismo 5 Trailer Just makes me curl into a ball.
You people are the morons giving them a voice. You first visit their site giving them hits then you sit around and talk about them for a couple days. Giving them exactly what they want.
GT5 will sell more units than Forza 2 & 3 combined.
all that 900 cars if u go back to gt4 for the ps2 it all ready has 700+ of those cars so all they did is add 125 to 200 more cars and add a couple more track that kinda bad if u think about it but i will be getting it because i like race games.... i think it will sell 2.5 mill i say...
So im not a Gran Turismo Fan, so i dont really care either way. However im pretty positive theres no way this game will be a disapointment.
Sky will fall before GT5 does. Everyone who played this game knows that.
