Gran Turismo 5 head-tracking 'underwhelming'

But there is one area that Polyphony Digital will have to 'smooth out before release', according to the Official PlayStation Magazine - and that's head-tracking.

*sigh* why is it that anything Sony related gets criticized to death before consumers get the final product? Besides, this is king Kazunori we are talking about. The king of all things racing. I say wait till the game is out in it's final form before passing judgment. Something tells me GT5 will be one hell of a game.

Sounds like MS supporters are getting desperate, reported on a non final build of a game.

Wow imagin in 3D and have headtracking.

The graphic alone make me really want this game. All GT games graphic always wow me in every generation. The best of it time.

damn 1000 cars!? it gonna be quite a show for cars lovers.

Its a conspiracy!!!!!!!!!!!

show me someone being somewhat critical of somthing related to Sony, and Ill show you a crazy fanboy claiming bias and conspiracy.


you guys are pathetic, dont forget to take off your tin foil hat and cape before you go to sleep.

Zack Sawyer2837d ago (Edited 2837d ago )

Erm I think you are mistaken, that criticism came from writers at Official Playstation Magazine, not CVG. They are just reporting news which is hardly bashing GT5

Did you not read the article?
It's from the Official PlayStation Magazine...
Who were giving their honest preview of the game.
There's alot of bad journalism going on in this generation, but don't knock it when it's how it should be for what it's not.
Back to the OP, from the article it seems that there really is no cockpit view in the 800 standard cars which is bad because that probably means the only camera views available would be outside view and bumper view.
Still at least it will all be in 3D and look stunning.
I'm also really looking forward to the damage on the 200 models, sounds like it's going to not only shut up Forza fanboys but also show Turn10 how it's done.
November 2nd couldn't come soon enough. Lets hope PD can smooth out the head tracking, would be a nice addition and a use for my PlayStation Eye camera

Fear. Uncertainty. Doubt.

So you're saying that the Official PlayStation Magazine dislikes Sony?

Sony defense force is responsible for that by shoving it down everybody's throats day after day.

Comment removed due to Soda taking words out of my mouth.

those xtrolls deserve it, i remember what it was like to be a playstation fan on here up to about last year, every single thing got picked on, all the games were shot down b4 anyone played them, go cry somewhere else, the xtrolls deserve it.

Same could be said about Kinect.

You Noob2837d ago

But Kinect is a shame :)

creepjack2837d ago

Umm, the same has been said about Kinect, over and over and over again. Where have you been?

DigitalAnalog2837d ago (Edited 2837d ago )

After seeing some demos upon it, I share the same sentiments on PSM


**I also noticed a lot of idiots didn't bother reading the article.....

-End statement

DigitalAnalog2836d ago

Like I said, it was underwhelming. Had the player moved his head back and forth instead of sideways just like the video I have then it would've been MORE impressive.

I'm not buying GT5 for the head-tracking anyway, so no loss for me.

Krugsy2837d ago

Agree with you there dude. It's just one thing, and to be honest, I dont think its a major thing. They could remove it and I would probably still love the game.

J-Smith2837d ago (Edited 2837d ago ) articles underwhelming

get ready for LOADS of GT5 hate coming soon on & other so called gaming sites. it will happen even if a game is perfect. its so predictable this site.

anyway DAY 1 buy for me

Xx Ziyad xX2837d ago (Edited 2837d ago )

N4G full of SONY FAN and hate FORZA 3 .. will Admit this will never happen

Silly gameAr2837d ago

Been seeing a healthy amount of that fanboy that doesn't exist on N4G lately. :/

RememberThe3572837d ago

That's it, I'm canceling my pre-order right now! Talk about a deal breaker, why else would I buy GT5?


Halo3 MLG Pro2837d ago

LOL @ sony fanboys who can't take any honest criticism. You kids are so sensitive. :)

Poseidon2837d ago (Edited 2837d ago )

sensitive huh? halo is overrated, bet ill get dissagrees from the people who are ""non sensitive"" lol

thereapersson2837d ago

You don't own a PS3. Are you here to make a scene of yourself, as you normally do?
