NowGamer: It may have 1,031 cars but Gran Turismo 5 is still missing a few, obvious, automobiles. Here we list the most obvious omissions and wonder if Polyphony has plans to release GT5 DLC car packs soon…
These people are going to be relentless between now and Christmas. More proof of how scared they are of GT5. And more evidence that PS3 titles are consistently held to a higher standard than those on any other platform.
It does seem strange. I mean GT5 has got cars from various manufacturers covering all kinds of car activities - rallying, road racing to shopping or fording a river... I understand people might want their own car to be modelled in the game or have a personal dream car etc, but there is no reason for someone to provide a list of cars since GT5 has something very similar already in it. I know that just from looking through the car list. Some examples - they want two cars (Mercedes and Model T) from over 100 years ago. I can't really think of anything more than a one time novelty that you'd bother with using these two. I imagine they'd be so slow I wouldn't get to the first corner before changing cars lol. So why ask PD to waste the (considerable) time & space on these. They moan about the lack of the Top Gear "Reasonably priced" car (Kia C'eed for example)- presumably for going round the Top Gear track. Yet there are several equivalent cars for this purpose, and given that is a somewhat dull type of car, I don't see anyone missing it for any other reason. Well anyway that's enough - it's got the most comprehensive list of cars anywhere, I don't see why that isn't enough... r.
i have feeling that they will released Top gear DLC pack with reasonably price car, The Power Board (Koenigsegg, Bugatti Veyron SS, etc), and Stig cousins other DLC probably historic car like Benz Patent-Motorwagen and Model T Ford
What's the point of having the Top Gear test track if you can't test your skills against the celebrities/F1 drivers in the exact same cars? 'Similar' cars just don't cut it for me. There had better be a Top Gear DLC pack soon.
@ryuzu: In short: People are judging the game they never played for what it isn't instead for what it is. That's just plain dumb. GT5 will get DLC, tons of it, which means more cars and features. Whiners can get their little cars after all. But it's better to b!tch. It's even dumber.
Another anti GT5 article from Nowgamer??? http://n4g.com/news/647803/...
@Feckles So you'd rather have the Kia C'eed in the game, than say, Red Bull F1, or an additional Ferrari etc. That's the choice - personally I think we have enough shopping cars as is. If I want to drive a Kia C'eed I'll just buy one for real lol. Can't do the same with a supercar. r.
What the current reasonably priced car isn't in it? Why the hell not? Feckles said it, what is the point in trying to beat the stig and celebrities if you have even a slightly better or worse car? [email protected] ryuzu...how is that the choice? They could take out one of the cars that ""Yet there are several equivalent cars for this purpose"" Why would another ferrari be the choice?
Feckles does have a point IMO and I was thinking the same thing. Not having one of Top Gear's reasonably priced cars with the track is odd and TBH the only thing in this list that is worth whining about.
im sure everybody can think of cars they want to be in the game
I don't want to beat a celeb in a reasonably priced car. I want to beat THE STIG in a supercar.
@Red Dead It's a choice because each car takes so long for PD to model to premium standard. It doesn't matter what car it is, it still takes about 6 months for them and that assumes they can get access and licensing for the car in the first place. So, given it takes 6 months and let's say they have the manpower to do 3 simultaneously (for a DLC pack - I guess the majority of the team are moving on to GT6 now). What 3 additional cars would you rather have in 6 months - C'eed, Swift and Lianna or Gumpert, Ascari and full Veyron or Koenigsegg? That's the choice - there is only so much time for PD to do things to the level they do them. It sucks, but that's why they're the best. Oh, and the "equivalent cars" I referred to are one with previously existing assets (models) from other places so they didn't consume much time. r.
I'm still rather surprised that even with over 1000 cars in this game, people still are finding something to complain about. Considering the next best racer only has about 400, 1000 is nothing to sneeze at. Do you remember all outrage when Forza 3 was released because of the cars it didn't include? Oh, that's right. Nobody wrote articles about that. Odd...
Why does it have to be primium? I would prefare if they could just make the car handle as close as possible to real life, the modeling doesn't matter and damage again doesn't matter, I just want to race the real celebs times as close as possible to the real thing. By the car being acurate to it's real life counterpart (performance wise)
Ah well, we knew the anti-viral marketing was going ramp up harder for GT5 release at some point. Let's hope people aren't as dumb as they were back in 2007. They've even started ramping up for KZ3 too. Sad.
Just in the interests of fairness because Darkride makes some good points... Full car list from Forza 3: http://forzamotorsport.net/... I only count 2 cars on the Nowgamer list and even then GT5 has RUF. Shame Forza makes over 600 glaring omissions from my list.
To ryuzu, Why can't I have both?
Your last 6 comments over the past 3 days have all been bashing this game in different articles. The only problem you have with this game is platform related. There is not point in continuing...
It compensates the omission of Koenigsegg and Porsche with 1 million Corollas and Skylines.
I'd rather drive the two rare cars that can not be driven in any other games or in real life for that matter, Citroen GT and Red Bull X1, than driving any other cars that are on all other racing games. Although I would love to see some of these cars in my GT5 Garage in the near future: Koenigsegg CCX Transtar Dagger GT SSC Ultimate Aero Porsche Carrera GT McLaren MP4 Ascari A10 Aston Martin One-77
Personally, I am boycotting GT5 because it doesn't include my first car. /s 0 to 100 in 3 minutes flat
Yeah, well, my truck isn't even in it either! It's an icon!
this is nothing that cant be fixed with a future dlc package.
"And more evidence that PS3 titles are consistently held to a higher standard than those on any other platform apart from PC. " I fixed it for you.
No one cares about PC games here, unfortunately.
"No one cares about PC games here, unfortunately." Isn't that convenient. Still does not change the fact that PC is still the most advanced gaming platform by far.
Was that a joke? I don't see PD making GT5 for PC and I won't have to go into any settings to make GT5 look good. Nor do I have to buy the latest GPU from nVidia or ATI to play it and it'll still be one of the best looking games ever created. The PC is kinda overrated when it comes to gaming.
@juggulator sorry, but you are wrong
is the same as to bring up a console in a Starcraft II / World of Warcraft / Crysis 1 article why?! why why why other than to troll and prance around with your PC elitism who cares, get over yourself and your PC same goes for those who go around prancing consoles in PC articles both are awesome.
is missing as well, and that car is a rolling orgasm, Im not a fan of most of you, but for your loyalty, you deserve better from Poly.
GT5 granted it doesn't look any better than DIRT 2 but given the depth and breadth of GT gameplay it's still amazing. just look at the physics modeling. the tires and suspension moved independently. DIRT 2 also have that but GT has street, rally, circuit, and lots of cars. it's amazing in it's own right.
I did think that the reasonably priced cars would be in, but i'm sure they will come in dlc form in the future. and since i dont pay for online or playstation plus i can save up for them. The porka thing has been raging on for years between sony and porsche do you ever remember porsche boxster challenge ps1? it goes on from then i think. koenninninnninggnggiiiggsseee g well i did expect to see them in there but again i'm pretty sure that DLC will be on the cards, dont forget kaz has to test drive these cars before they get included so.... apart from that i have plenty to get on with 205 gti, renault 5 gt turbo, escort cossie, they are my favorite types of cars. its all well and good blitzing down a track in a lambo but give me the grit and technical driving of the smaller bhp cars for pure kicks. plus i know more about those and what works best during tuning.. http://www.automobile-sport... http://www.motorimania.it/m...
just as long as gt5 have the pagani zonda type r, I'm straight.
No Koenigsegg or Porsche huh?! That's not good.
earlier from nowgamer http://n4g.com/news/647803/...
I think the reasonably priced cars from Top Gear could be a nice addition. Sure, they're weak to what else we're getting but it would be nice to complete the 'Top Gear experience'
I think there's more to it that just the 'Top Gear experience'. I'm pretty sure that a lot of Top Gear fans would love a GT5 Top Gear leaderboard where you drive around in a reasonably priced car and your time is automatically uploaded to an online list for everyone to see and try to beat.
Yea that'd be what I want.. I want the leaderboard from top gear and race against all the celebrity times (I wanna pwn Simon Cowell or chef ramsey :D) lol + have the stig leaderboard as well Anyway, that isn't something that can't be added, and it doesnt make it any less of a beast without that stuff so w/e
That's not NowGamer, dude, it's X360 magazine. they're a different – single format – magazine/site/crowd. It even displays the link on the N4G page.
Whining about Porsche? What is RUF then????
revolutionary united front. an ongoing rebel in sierra leone using kids as front man. yes... we have that on gt5. /sarcasm this article made by someone ignorant who dont want to google further a little bit.
For me? The 2010 and 2011 Mustang v8 and v6, especially 2011. Not to mention Dodge has no Nascar input. What about Kurt Busch? We don't need 90 skyline trims.
Also not to mention they got 02 and 03 Honda Accords, what about the faster 07 and 08?
omg GT 5 didnt make me breakfast, lets write a article about it.
more than KZ2, more than Halo Reach. pathetic. just enjoy the damn game stop whining...as for the missing cars? well SORRY they couldn't put in EVERY SINGLE CAR IN THE WORLD.
Released within the last 6 months? Sure let's make those magically appear and pretend we don't know there's a minimum 6 month development cycle PER-CAR. At some point in development you need to lock your set of features and actually finalize the game. Did wee all really want to wait 6 more months, a year or more for some extra cars? Where's the Yugo on the list? Where's the Tucker? Where's the Maybach? You'll always be able to find something NOT on the list. How about appreciating the 1031 great cars that ARE on the list? I've had issues with Now Gamer before but now they are just scraping the bottom of bad gaming journalism. That list is a manufactured joke of an excuse for hits...How very NowGamer.
Haters gonna hate... though some cars mentioned I wish were in there, namely Porsche which make my favourite models of all time... RUF will have to do. WTF is wrong with Porsche anyway? It's GT5, are they mentally handicapped? It's the highest selling and most dedicated racing/driving game franchise in history!
its all to do with money, sony probs dont want to pony up the money they are asking, or theres some sort of licence that they couldnt get.
yeah that is my only complaint. Then there is the people that are like "but but it has Ruf" Yep sure does, all 4 of them, and they are old and not up to date. Porsche has over 40 models, ranging from the first 40hp flat four 356 Roadster, to the new 911 GT2 RS, which is the fastest 911 to date. It posted 7:18 on the Nurburgring. Thats faster 90% of the cars in the game. And the overall record holder on the Nurburgring is a Porsche 956. And Porsche just happens to be my favorite car company, so for me its a little lame.
Same here big boss, I've owned four Porsches and really hoped Poly/Sony would get the Porsche license for GT5. It certainly isnt the same thing having Rufs although some of the newer models wouldve been some kind of compromise. Real shame but we'll have to wait until GT6 now. In the mean time I'm picking up NFS for my Porsche fix!
Umm ok the 7:18 is a manufacturer claim and the closest a public test has come to that claim is 7:24. In fact the 09 dodge viper acr posted a 7:22.1.. Ohh and the world record holder is the radical sr8 lm at 6:45...
I'm unsure how PD feel about DLC but it's looking likely they're going to add all these cars (except for Porche)with DLC. To make a game that features the top gear track without any of the reasonably priced cars is odd to say the least. The other cars are famous and well known, why they aren't in the game is beyond me. Although the exception is the Mazda #16. There must be 100 Mazdas in GT5. I think we can go without one Mazda.
I believe the reason Porsche aren't in the game and instead RUF are is due to the fact they have a licensing agreement with EA and have had one for quite a while now. Makes sense as we always see Porsche in the NFS titles but never any other racing games.
No offense, but that's exactly what he said in the article.
You can do the same thing with Forza 3 if you want. Unless GT5 has every single car made in history they will never be happy
Dunno if it was said before, but the Ferrari California and 1 or 2 other were added into prologue through an update for FREE so its probably certain to happen that the top gear cars will come at some stage.
I agree with the top 3 of the list. Pre-ordered anyway and hoping for dlc.
Porsche's are in the game instead of Porsche it's called RUF. Here look. RUF 3400S '00 RUF BTR '86 RUF CTR2 '96 RUF CTR "Yellow Bird" '87 RUF RGT '00 http://www.gran-turismo.com...
Wow, the newest Ruf in the game is 10 years old! Not good enough.
They mean a true "porshe", its nit picking for sure.
just spelt right lol
The reasonably priced cars are an unfortunate omission, also I was looking forwards to seeing BMW's (now heading to production) Vision Efficient Dynamics Showcar from the '09 Geneva Motor Show. That thing looks crazy awesome! http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.bmwblog.com/2010... Also, just a couple months ago the newly revealed Lotus models and the new Jag gas turbine propelled concept CX-75 from the 2010 Paris show would be really sweet. Maybe all of these will come in DLC. Overall, I'm happy with what we are getting though, and it is really unfortunate that other games don't get slammed just cause they are missing a few obscure, old (or brand new) vehicles when those games typically have only a few more cars than a prologue version of a GT game.
I really wish there was Koenigsigg, pretty cool stuff. I wish they had more of the top gear cars from the challenges lol.
lol @ the people who are talking DLC. i thought this was the total package? the game isn't even out yet and all this hope for DLC. it took 5 years to get to this point so i don't expect to see any DLC for another 3-6 months.
I'm not sure if your trolling buddy, but there is NO DOUBT that DLC will be part of GT5.
I bet this doesnt even sell 2 million on day one. And maxcer is right, 7 years everyone has waited, yet they want to make you pay for DLC that should be in the game to start with. They've delayed it so they could copy everything from Forza, the least they can do is provide a full experience. There's only like 10 good cars in gt5, the rest are horrible.
Didn't know forza had night racing,weather effects,track editor,rallying,nascar and karting.Oh wait it dosen't you're just being a tool
I didnt know Forza (any of the installments) ever sold even ONE million opening day. Poowr wittle Fowza fan, wouwied Big Bad GT5 going to damage his sad pafwetic image of "The DEFFINITIVE racing game of the generation!!" LOOLLOLLLLOOLLROFLROFLLOLL!!! !!!
So this new forza ultimate edition with the "ultimate car pack" which can only be obtained by buying the new edition of forza is perfectly ok but having 1031 cars out of the gate and the promise of more to come through dlc isn't? Freaking hypocrites.. Your avatar belies your biased fanboy nature so your comments mean nothing..
