Fucking in game ad. booo!

I'm totally serious man. I don't want to look at some ad while I'm gaming that's why I paid my $60. If you're going to do product placement then lower the cost of the game.

u serious? That's a good thing that F1 cars, tracks nascar etc. are so close to real life with their real world counterpart advertisements on them.

Yeah, I suppose they should drop every other manufacturer and use fake cars as well since, you know, it's all advertising.
CernaML  +   1811d ago
....What the flying fuck are you talking about? You're seriously not thinking that they're advertising the Red Bull energy drink are you?
Red_Orange_Juice  +   1811d ago
? product placement ?
What's the difference between official car and a prototype?, it's both product placement, this whole game is product placement, even race tracks are owned by private companies and are considered "a product" cos they make money for their owners.

All that matters is it looks freakin sweet and plays like crazy

I agree! I dont want to see any real cars in the game since its advertising the cars and making me want to buy them. If I see one Viper, Corvette, or Ferrari in the game, Im returning it... /s

You have heard of Red Bull Racing right?
Yeah Sebastian Loeb ,Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber are all just sales men trying to get us to buy energy drinks......
Its a conspiracy !!!!
visualb  +   1810d ago
let me explain something
the game has an ad for Redbull, because...well, REDBULL ARE ADVERTISING GT5


as in, its a mutual agreement.

it only benefits both companies...its not about getting cash from Redbull or anything =|

Bathyj  +   1811d ago
1483bhp @ 15,000RPM and only 545kg.

Vacuums on the wheels to suck in to the road. Thats insane.

And F1 cars measure time to a 1000th of a second, meanwhile this thing blows the lap record away by 20 seconds. Not a small margin.

Not to mention what a sexy b*tch it is.
badz149  +   1811d ago
this is awesome
no wonder Vettel made Japan F1 GP looks so easy for himself. He droved this super car in GT5 and got like 20secs over his best time. driving a much slower F1 car must have gave him the advantage in real life!

Suzuka Lap Time: 1:11.540 (compare with Vettel’s 2009 F1 lap time of 1:30.833) the real driving simulater has just become a joke if you ask me

why can't Turn 10 do something like this?


edit: you disagreed? ok can you provide me proof that Turn 10 followed Polyphony's example of Citroen GT and this awesome red bull x1?

Turn 10 can't compete with Gran Turismo
hennessey86  +   1811d ago
they already did compete and win my friend. Its only gt5 that will finally take the crown back. I cant wait for gt5 but i aint a blind fanboy. Forza has been at the top for a while now but i think thers no doubt gt5 is a beast of a game but give forza some credit man its a great game. The review scores say it all

GT has worldwide fanbase
Any other racing games don't have that reception.

Turn 10 is impossible to catch up with PD
theonlylolking  +   1810d ago
Its possible. They are with the biggest bribing gaming company in the world.
kaveti6616  +   1811d ago
That's like asking why PD didn't make a deep custom livery editor like the one Forza 3 has.

Both series have their own strengths and weaknesses.
MaximusPrime  +   1811d ago
im sure every GT fan disagree.

I dont want custom livery editor in GT. its too childish and GT is not Need for Speed Underground or Midnight Club.

It will totally ruin the whole Gran Turismo series.

GT keeps it at a more pro level, while Forza does more of the car-show thing.

Take a logic class. What you just said was immature.

You tried to downplay the custom livery editor by calling it childish and saying that no GT fan would want it. And you got a ton of agrees. This says something about the world. Illogical idiots, that's all you guys are. If MS was to make a custom car to promote Forza, I suspect you would all bash MS for spending more money on advertising than on the game.
visualb  +   1810d ago
yo man no need to bring turn 10 into this =|
seriously, want to keep loyal to GT5 and the all mighty PD? DON'T MENTION other game devs, especially disrespectful immature ones =(

How about using some proper grammar when you post a message, your parents didn't spend countless amounts of money on school bills for you to end up flushing it down the toilet.

well if he's capable of typing in perfect English he should be able to proof read what he's typing and make the proper correction instead of sounding like a caveman.

acording to 0-60mph calculates it should do 60mph in 0.6 seconds.
killzowner  +   1811d ago

just off the top of my head i think thats a wrong assessment.

i dnt even think fighter jets do 0-60 that fast

I hate all the preorder BS. I'm glad it's not.

Also, I hope they make all the preorder bonus available to everyone at a later date like GTPSP.
Dlacy13g  +   1811d ago
OK, we know its delayed...
We get that they are going to have a bunch of awesome cars....

How about they give us a new release date?
yogaflame  +   1810d ago
Will this car appear in the movie "Tron" It looks like a car from that movie. Well its not Gt5 anymore but Wipeout. By the way , it may take a long time for you to unlock this car. Maybe you need to pass all license test, get all cars, and win all competition mode, and it is worth 100 million in the GT5 to get this. Hahaha just imagine this car against that tiny Fiat.
visualb  +   1810d ago
thats one beautiful car =O
does it actually exist? didn't get it in the article =( and can't tell from photos if its reality or GT5 (duh)

AMAZING though...its like an F1 meets a Lotus =D
ZILLA  +   1810d ago
the specs on this car sound like me after drinking 2 RED BULLs.i really hope they include a 79-93 MUSTANG,that would make a ton of people(gamers)reeeeeeeeeal happy.
