Earlier today, the popular game blog, Kotaku, ruffled the feathers of racing fans anticipating Sony’s launch of the latest iteration of the best selling racing simulation Gran Turismo 5 for the Playstation 3 console. The video appears to show exorbitantly long load times while the game loads a specific track.
Kotaku titled the video “Video Shows Gran Turismo 5 Has Painfully Slow Load Times” and goes on to comment “With a couple months left and GT developer Polyphony Digital still hard at work, there is hope that these horribly long load times can be significantly reduced. ”
However, eagle eyed visitors to the site have noticed a few peculiarities in the video. The most obvious is the slo-mo speeds that reflections of visitors at the event appear to be moving at during certain points in the video. The second is previous footage of the same level loading that show a dramatic difference in loading time.
