Gran Turismo 5 has been called a few things in its time. 'Delayed', mainly. But UK developer Blitz has labelled it as something altogether more exciting.

Considering its going to be a masterclass in terms of technical achievement and there is no story in GT5.

Everyone keeps talking about Sony western developers so far this gen but the truth is PD have always been THE PS dev. Since the PS1 they have been doing things on PS consoles that no other PS devs were able to achieve. It was always the case of PD realeseing GT's and for other devs to try and emulate what they were able to do.

I said it before and i will say it again. GT5 is going to be a landmark title in gaming.

"masterclass in terms of technical achievement"
Does that sound like CoD to you?

Downtown boogey2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

Well, you're right about that... But as a mainstream money maker, I'd endorse it's similarity to Avatar.

Hideo_Kojima2688d ago

mw2 is more like the movie that is popular yet prety shallow...

like an action packed guns blazing 007 wannabe.

acedoh2688d ago

he was referring to sales although that could be said. I think he was referring to the 3D element of this game.

Huge sales but a product that was already delivered hundreds of times before but better looking this time?

Sitris2688d ago

that 1000+ cars, 70 tracks, day night, weather, nascar, rally, X1 prototype, go carts, track editor. All the while offering 16 player online, 60 fps.

Yeah thats what i thought.

jp_footy22688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

not to forget 1080p and 3D

PS360fanboy2688d ago

@Sitris Humn, can I say GT4?

So, since when does GT5 have 60fps and 16 player online?
Besides, X1 prototype is now a feature? Oh, and I can't wait for go carts...

Contrary to most of you, I'm actually gonna buy the game but don't make what it clearly isn't.

Terarmzar2688d ago

You forgot Head tracking... actually i think a lot of people forgot that feature since it is never brought up when they list features in the game.

raztad2688d ago

Is it me of PS360fanboy is saying that GT4 has day night racing, weather, nascar, track editor, rally?

Dont forget real time damage model, plus better car physics.

"Since when does GT5 have 60fps and 16 player online?
HUH? not sure if I understand.

And it probably has a better story then Avatar (which didn't have one) too. Anyway, can't wait for it to come out.

Shadow Flare2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

Is it cool to hate on Avatar or something? Do people hate it just cos it was overhyped? I must be the only person on earth that enjoyed it. Maybe watching it at the iMax like I did made a bigger impression on me. And why does everyone say it has no story? It had a more engrossing story then most films I watch. I've never seen anything quite like avatar. The scenery and imagination was simply beautiful. It does my head in when people just write it off. "oh, the script is no Schindler's List, therefore it has no story". I really, really don't get the hate cos I thought it was a cool film and I enjoyed the story a lot. Hate on me, whatever

Blacktric2688d ago

Yeah its cool to hate on Avatar right now, like Xbox 360 and Kinect. It's the "in" thing, you should try it. Avatar was the Doom 3 of cinema. No jawdropping CGI quality leap and a clichê story filled with boring characters. No one is comparing it to the Schindler's List because in the end, we all knew it was going to be an action oriented film, but I didn't expect the kind of boring story from a film that hyped.

Calm Down Sunshine2688d ago

You're not alone. The film was excellent.

Granted, parts of it weren't overly original.
But they were perfected.

Venatus-Deus2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

It was good solid film, but more importantly I found it an experience. A event to enjoy.

@Calm Down Sunshine

LOL... thats an understatment

Avatar is just Pocahontas in space

nix2688d ago

i have the Avatar Blu-ray and i recently set up a decent home theatre system.. i think the game is truly a tech masterpiece. but yeah.. the story is weak!

Shadow Flare2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

Venatus, so if avatar is just pochahontus in space, then how can avatar have "no story"? I haven't seen pochahontus so maybe that's why I enjoyed avatar. You know, a lot of love films are similar. But it's how its presented that makes it different. And avatar was presented like nothing I've quite seen before. All I know is, I enjoyed avatar, and I enjoyed it's story. But maybe pochahontus has no story to it either....


No, I get the attachment and it's probably true. And it's funny yeah. I wasn't really directing my comment at you, I was more using your point to show that avatar does have a story. And a decent one

Venatus-Deus2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

@ Shadow

Hey, I liked Avatar and I was agreeing with you, but the Pocahontas in space is just a known internet joke.

See attachment... without it, it seems like I'm knocking the film (which i'm not).

kneon2688d ago

@Calm Down Sunshine

Yes little of the film was original. I think James Cameron was a fan of Clifford D. Simak. The Avatar concept was used in the book "City" back in 1952, though I don't know if that is the first occurrence. And the idea of the interconnected, highly interdependent biology of the planet was used in the short story "The World That Couldn't Be" back in 1958. There is even a creature called a "Donovan" that seems by it's capabilities to be the equivalent to the "Hammerhead Titanothere" in Avatar.

For the rest of the Avatar story you just need to have been aware of the US government actions over the past few decades.

N4WAH2688d ago (Edited 2688d ago )

I think Avatar is amazing. The graphics, the sound is KILLER and the actors were fantastic, especially the voice actors. I even enjoyed the story. Now you wanna talk about a bad movie? 2012!
