Great news for those trophy hunters, Polyphony Digital are deciding to put in multiple platinum trophies in the game, this is odd for single stand alone game to have the pinnacle trophy "The Platinum" multiple times.
I'm honestly kinda confused if this is true or not, but I sure hope so..the more platinums the better.
WHOOOAAAAH!!!!! ( . ) ( . )
Because of all the content. But is it likely to happen? When you consider WRC, Super GT, NASCAR, Le Mans, Drift races, over 1000 cars, tons of license tests, many different leagues, etc. I'll put this as a rumor for now, but I wouldn't be surprised if Sony allowed them to offer 3 Platinums either.
Yeah, I see it being plausible since the game will be huge and without a doubt, some of the races will be brutal, not for the faint heart. I just hope they have a trophy for finishing first in a 24 hour LeMans race. That will be a nice trophy to have.
The Game will be Huge in every aspect, but I think it's going to be 1 Platinum, I don't see the "need", unless PD want to give you a plat for an "special" league, like Nascar for example....
The game is BIG and BEAST baby. Platinuming a GT game is like "Passing an exam with 100% merit"
Meh, it's fake. I doubt they'll are going to give GT5 (specifically) multiple platforms. It just seems like a rumor based on the fact that Sly Collection (note: 3 games! not one!) has 3 plats.. So... NO, there will be only one plat for GT5. Unless they plan to include GT4 in there, but then it's still 1 plat for GT5.. and the other for GT4.
Ohh man it would be sweet if they included GT4 remastered but i doubt thats gonna happen.
WRC, NASCAR, Le Mans and etc (etc is a HUGE HUGE amount of content) so... it warrents having 3 platinums for sure. You could even call the online component a completely seperate game.
It doesn't warrant 3 platinums at all. The whole point of a platinum trophy is to show off to others that you've completed ALL other trophies. If Sony allow devs to give them away for doing any old task then it makes a mockery of the whole system.
but I wish they would give you a trophy (not necc. plat) for having a save file for the previous game or something. Call it the "Committment" trophy or something.
because we all have bc ps3 right?
u ll need another life for 1 platinum. 100%, yeahhh right.
Curious about how this will work.
I've played forza 2 a ton, and I have yet to complete the game, it's just too damn big, I know I wont be able to beat forza 3 by the time gt5 comes out and I'm sure that by forza 4 or my next racing purchase I won't complete that game either. If anything these games need to reduce the length of a lot of the campaign/career components not add extra trophies or achievements to try and hook scorewhores.
Yes they should make games shorter so we get less for our money, that would make soooo many people happy. /s
I'm saying that it's pointless to create such a mass amount of content that few people will ever get to (note that last part, everyone should get to enjoy it not just the hardcore). I could easily get the rest of my achievements in forza 2, but for me it's just a giant grind and i hate subjecting such a great game to something so boring, sterile, and just not enjoyably. I'd much rather play forza 3 and have fun. I want to appreciate games I don't get to do that when I'm in a grind to get those last few achievements and trophies. what I'm saying is, make the content, just shorten the campaign so everyone gets to enjoy it, not just the people who only get to play one racing game every 3 or 4 years.
Ok well i understand that in a way (don't agree but can see where you're coming from), but for the die hard fans of the game it wouldn't be fair and especially with waiting so long for GT5. I still haven't beat GT5p yet but that just means it still has some value left in it (to me anyways).
but imo, they wont, with the amount of content and value packed into gt5 no one will get shafted. Not to mention the most avid fans always form their own communities to create and push the shelf life of a game far past what the developer can ever accomplish. You'll see drifting clubs, custom online race modes and challenges, video competitions, leader boards and ghosts, and ton of extra content. The diehards will always push through all the content, regardless if there's 20 hrs of career or 60hrs. I just think it's pointless to create 3 trophies when probably < 3% will never even play the game enough to get one.
As if I needed another reason to buy this game.
Please I need one last playable demo before release date.
This game is getting to the point where its TO GOOD its like they broke a best game record but they just want to keep makeing it better to make sure nobody beats it how will they top THIS in GT6?
by doing what they always do, offer a sacrafice to the gods of epicness, na i mean just going that extra mile, pushing more performance from their engine, and generaly just being the best.
damn PD yall isnt bullshittin around. I can't wait until Nov 2, 2010 roll around gt5 CE baby.
I wouldn't mind if they added some other type of trophy for those of us that don't play all our games online. Getting every trophy but 2 Multiplayer trophies in Red Dead and missing out on a full complete is annoying. Give me SP trophy completion and a MP trophy completion.
Highly unlikely. Sure, the GOW Collection had 2, the Sly Cooper collection is rumored to have 3 , but thats 2 resp. 3 separate games, not one.
This game just keeps on giving. PD had me at "Hello", but they keep offering more!
I wouldn't say great news for those trophy hunters. Getting platinum in GT5 wouldn't be like getting trophies from Disney games.
Multiple platinums? Not a good thing. Make plenty of gold and silver trophies instead.
See, that's the catch 22 with this. Games have a certain value assigned to them in the background, so you can only have a certain number or type of trophy (essentially to stop developers making a game with 30 gold trophies). For a game like this, there's probably going to be a very high number of bronze and few silver and gold trophies.
Oh no as long as there is not a Mission like 34 in GT4 lol to get platinum
Haha the thing I hated the most about that mission was the wait time every time you started. You had to wait like a minute and a half...
Seeing as how ive never heard of this site before, i somehow doubt this is true.
One way to devalue currency is for there to be too much in circulation. Substitiue those 5 (or however many) Platinum trophies for Gold. Platinum should always be the pinnacle of the game, irrespective of how many diferent aspects that game has. It signifies total and absolute completion of the game. What's the point of a platinum trophy if it no longer signifies the absolute completion of the game? Will Polyphony then offer another trophy (Diamond?) for when someone collects all the platinum trophies in the game? It's a bad idea and will devalue the much coveted Platinum trophy (even if only the bragging rights) Imagine achieving 2/3 platinum trophies in the game... it's meaningless because you still have'nt reached completion. Naaa.. keep it at one platinum, but make the Gold trophy harder to get i.e for completing each of the different aspects/modes/racing championships in teh game!
It would take waaaay toooo loooong to finish the whole game on 100% plus you would have to play through stuff that might not interest you. So having a platinum for the WRC or Nascar, or Super GT, or even the Arcade is very smart. I'm curious as to whether they will have WRC specific courses etc either in the beginning or as a future download for a price?
November 2nd. I already got my preorder in at amazon. I cant wait.
