Who cares? its not the final built

Jamie Foxx2820d ago (Edited 2820d ago )

and if you want to talk about bugs just look for forza's RETAIL version on youtube,i hate to bring up forza but its just to show how stupid and one-sided the media can be.

Raikiri2820d ago (Edited 2820d ago )

Thanks but no thanks i don't want Fanboy bubbles.

Mystogan2820d ago

Now you deserve a bubble LOL

Bereaver2820d ago (Edited 2820d ago )

Wait..... Raikiri, you have 2 bubs, but Jamie Foxx has five. Why is this? If he's such a big bad fanboy?

-edit- *Looks at Raikiri's past comments* WOW lol, now I see why.

ConanOBrien2819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

still look arcadey (old gen cardboard style) but the rest is nicey

The Lazy One2819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

@"i hate to bring up forza but its just to show how stupid and one-sided the media can be."

cuz there were never any news stories on any forza bugs...

edit: at below. The most significant bug is where you have an accident where the difference in speeds between the two cars is >100mph causing one car to take all the momentum of the crash and fly off like crazy. Realistically, it doesn't affect gameplay at all (when in a race are you going to run into someone driving the opposite direction at full speed?).

Still it's a bug in the retail version.

BloodyNapkin2819d ago

@Jamie Foxx

You know budget and time plays a factor into that stuff also, such as 2 years VS 5+ years and don't get me started on budget. Actually i did a search on youtube for Forza 3 retail bugs and it found nothing. If you do Forza 3 bugs search you come up with a handful but not all are retail version. Don't get me wrong i am very excited for GT5 and i am sure all these bugs are not going to affect the game that much. But when you make stupid comments you need to be called out is all.

Why o why2819d ago

old school XDF here to say nothing about the article just defend his brethren. *sigh* that dude has been trolling and talking crap for a touch now. Doesnt mean he's 100% one sided like yourself. Even a broken clock is right twice a day or maybe he's just seen this repeat article for what it is.... Anyway people are allowed to make judgements based on his and/or anybody elses previous and having both consoles dont mean jack sh!t...I have a 360 but do you consider me somebody you'd stick your neck out make it too easy.

Let the game finish and be released... Thats the best thing. There will be glitches even in the finished game as i feel a glitchless game is near on impossible to find especially when the game is a technical/complicated one. Some forza fans will use this as revenge even though this isnt the final build and thats fair sure many ps3/gt fans were having a laugh at the forza glitches that were/are present in the final build so alls fair. Personally i think people should thing me thinks

NegativeCreepWA2819d ago

As long as theirs no glitch were you lose your whole garage like GT2 I'm fine.

@ Jamie what are talking about every Forza glitch was bashed to no end. Theres nothing one sided about this. And how much crap Forza has taken regardless of being a great game no one can ever say GT is being treated poorly.

Anyways, this is the type of glitch that will most likely be fix before release.

KiLLUMiNATi_892819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

I'd played the game and it looks amazing and I personally witness no bugs or glitches.

rareairtone2819d ago

Forza isn't even news anymore. It came out almost a year ago.

GT5 is current. So any bugs that show up should be reported, just like they were for Forza 3.

hay2819d ago

Holy crap! I'm gonna cry!

seinfan2819d ago

It seems to happen only in the cock-pit view. Good thing I'm a noob at racing games and I drive with the camera tailing the car.

ExplosionSauce2819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

And I doubt Polyphony would ignore that.

Another thing. The guy driving sucked with or without a road.

I don't know why fanboys are going crazy over this. Exposure of this bug to the public will definitely get Sony's/PD's attention and will more than likely make it a priority fix before release.

kerrak2819d ago

Pleaaaase pleaaaaaaase everybody.
It's the worst game ever.
It has standard cars.
There is a bug in a beta!
It can't do 40 cars in Nascar!
I repeat: DON'T BUY GRAN TURISMO 5!!!!

frostyhat1232818d ago (Edited 2818d ago )

Troll Jamie Fox.

frostyhat1232818d ago

"Thanks but no thanks i don't want Fanboy bubbles."
Best comment ever! Look at all the fanboys disagreeing with you.

Sensationalism at it's best ey?

MrMccormo2819d ago

Haha! Yeah, anyone else remember the "laggy and slow-paced GT5!" video that ended up being a crappy video edit where someone slowed down some footage?

The media would love to smear GT5 (anything Sony, to be honest), but they're losing ground.

Hideo_Kojima2819d ago


Kind of Off Topic but in that video it took 60 seconds to load the track.

Will GT5 have an optional install?

sikbeta2819d ago

Bug Disaster!? Pleeeasseee.... it's not the final product....

DaTruth2819d ago

That's what betas are for!

Sitdown2819d ago

You showing a glitch from Forza 3 still does cover up the fact that there is a glitch in the GT 5 demo/beta. You remind me of some of my clients....instead of just owning up and addressing their flaws, they try to cover them up by highlighting everybody else's flaws.

Its okay everybody...GT 5 is not going to be perfect; and I am okay with that, because it means there will be room for a GT 6.

DatNJDom812819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

Actually, showing that glitch is very relevant being that it's in the final product as compared to a demo/beta.

"You remind me of some of my clients....instead of just owning up and addressing their flaws, they try to cover them up by highlighting everybody else's flaws."

Really? I'm not addressing my flaws? Well theres no way to address my flaw in this situation. Last time I checked, PD and Sony owned Gran Tourismo, not me. They are the ones that have to work on the game. But being the "professional" that you are, you would have known that....... I just hope they fix all those bugs and dont leave the UFO car thats in Forza. Thanks for the comment though, Dr. Phil, it was very enlightening.

Sitdown2818d ago

Question: Why not show another ps3 game with a glitch? Anyhow..lets get this straight, you thought it was relevant to show another video game, running on different hardware, made by different developers, with a different budget, and a different development cycle? Well okay then....I guess if I put the goggles on I can see what you see. Moving right along....was your long rant concerning my statement on clients you trying to make a mockery because you really could not come up with a better response or were you just not able to grasp the concept? Ohh, and "Dr Phil" clever is that, I am pretty sure nobody has used that line before.......especially since he is the figure head for my profession. Ohh wait, that's right....he is not.

FACTUAL evidence2820d ago

But I'm sorry, those trees look a know...fake.

r1sh122819d ago

In short there are going to be many glitches and bugs, but as someone else stated its not the final build.
Some things will be fixed and others will be fixed when the mass population of players find them.
Not every bug will be found until its out.
But it just depends on how they respond to fixing the bugs.

tucky2819d ago

Agree ... just take the Forza 3 bugs: none of them were visible in the release version(or may be some very minor ones)

I'm confident for GT5, it will be great

stonecold12819d ago

before sony launches the game anyway unlike flopza the arcade racer its glitchy than any other games are out there

pustulio2819d ago

It's actually from today.

3 = Day
10 = Month
2010 = Year

You're probably from USA where it will we Month, day, year but that's from other country in which it is day, month and year.

Scotland-The-Brave2819d ago

yup americans and there stupid dates and driving on the wrong side of the road.

seinfan2819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

I know you just "jk" but there really is no such thing as an objective standard as to which side of the road is the correct way to drive. I wish there was, though. I mean in Italy, if you were to motion to a driver to go on ahead of you, they freak out because they think you're trying to set them up for an accident or something. It shows how vastly different the traffic laws are between countries.

ijkabob2819d ago

No i'm pretty sure if anyones driving on the wrong side of the road its us (USA). I mean we are the only idiots that don't use the metric system for gods sake.

1Victor2819d ago

Thanks for the correction my mistake on the date yes I live in the US /New York so fogeta'bout it . I got P!ssed off after coming from a 16 hours shift and seeing a old video been passed as new by some fanboys, but the rest of my comment stand true and I don't see why it was flagged as trolling when I spoke the truth in about 90% of the comment. those that disagreed with me for the date good for you those that agreed thanks .
BTW this should have been taken care of by PD by now or at least I hope so.

Oh noes, glitches! Whatever shall I do! I'm not buying this game anymore!

I'll buy it and if I ever run into a bug in it, EVER, I'll pull the trigger right there.

danielle0072819d ago


That's dedication. I like it.

Squall50052819d ago

I'm not sure what annoyed me most. The 55 second loading time or that glitch.
I just hope both are sorted out by time I get my hands on this beast.

Jazz41082819d ago

If you own a ps3 like myself then you should be used to long loads and mandatory installs and if your lucky like me your fat ps3 wiill die before 2 months are up with a ylod while my launch 360 lasted 5 years and gets played 10 times more ........go figure.

PRHB HYBRiiD2819d ago

yeah only two months away -.-

commodore642819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

one month?

This game was announced over four years ago, has 150 people working on it and has cost $60 million so far.

after 4+ years of development, they better hurry up and sort out the glitches and loading times.

Should we be worried?
Is one month enough to sort out the problems that could not be fixed in 4 years with $60 million and 150 people?

2819d ago
cliffbo2819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

this is months old saw this along time ago


i dont see what he said is trolling all he said is the truth it is an old video just someone slapped todays date on it.

lucifon2819d ago

Its not an old video though, its from Eurogamer Expo which is still going on today - Oct 1st to Oct 3rd. However it is probably the same build that the older video saw being played.

ChickeyCantor2819d ago

"Who cares? its not the final built"

You can't possible go on with that after so many years of development?
I bet in the end it will have little bugs and it will have patches to fix the others.

But be a bit realistic.

avengers19782819d ago

There are always articles like this tearing down PS3 games before they even come out. There were all kinds of stories about how Dead Rising 2 was shitty on PS3 but I'm playing it with out any issues.

Scotland-The-Brave2819d ago

To be fair, there are articles slamming both console games before they come out.

mint royale2819d ago

I don't care about playstation vs xbox but I sure do enjoy epic fails.

Solid_Snakeps32819d ago

i think 360 fanboys are already picking on GT5... seriously the game is NOT out yet

Domer252819d ago

God PD I wish you would release the game tomorrow, so I don't have to see these bullsh!t articles for another month.

Longrod_Von_Hugendon2819d ago

Exactly. It could be old video. Trying to start unnecessary drama

ZombieNinjaPanda2819d ago

If the game was released, then this would be news, but since it isn't, why make a big deal?

niceguywii602819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

Forget the bugs its the:
-Handling/Physics/Car Weight
-Acceleration/Dececeleration mechanics/physics

that are the biggest problems. The game plays like a last generation arcade racer. It's really sad to look at whn the devs and fans claim this is a Simulator. Boy the cutscens entering a race and after the race/replays look great but the actual gameplay graphics are way over hyped IMO not even on par with some multi platform racers let alone Forza 3.

It's like the cars drive on ICE and you're not driving the car but trying to anticipate the road trying to slingshot you off the track when corners show up like oldschool NES games.

xAlmostPro2819d ago

isnt this this same glitch thats been showed multiple times ? :/

This is stupid. A bug disaster? are you serious? all games have bugs- if GT5 wasn't expected to be what it is, it wouldn't be under such scrutiny.

well, for every masterpiece there's always those who wish it to fail. its an ego thing, hard to explain.
