CVG: A new Gran Turismo 5 patch designed to improve aspects of the game's damage modelling will be released later this month.
Not bad, I'd expect a japanise game like this to think it was perfect and not bother with an update like western games tend to. But serious respect to them for listening to reviews!
I think you are getting wrong side of what they mean by damage. Most review moan about the body damage being naff. But that is because they are not at a high enough level to get the full body damage. The patch they are releasing is for mechanical damage. So that is engine, axels, tires, gearbox. Stuff like that.
lets just wait for the patch and see. shouldnt be long now.
I don't think this is something they just planned based on reviews. I think this was something they had planned and part of the reason the game was delayed. They just couldn't get it into place soon enough and there you have it. The public was demanding the game and the reviewers became very harsh on these things. Maybe in the next couple of months these reviewers can take another look at the game and re-evaluate it. I have believed from the start this is a superb game but many reviewers on the other hand have taken issue with some features. We will see what comes of this.
Most reviewers already need to re-evaluate. Saying no damage? Wow. Maybe they're releasing patched because of sony's pressure on PD to release the game? And so they decided to just patch it up after? And Us, GT5 gamers, who might have asked for changes. I dont think reviewers have anything to do with it. IGN have already been spat in the face. Most reviewers have failed.
This is why I bought the game on Day 1. I use reviews as a gauge to decide on 99% of games I purchase. The 1% exception is GT5 because I knew that like the rest of the GT franchise, features, events, and functions are always added throughout the game's lifetime. So review scores for GT5 will be completely outdated in a matter of weeks or months. While other companies generally only fix bugs and glitches, PD adds features. I play Forzas and the only time they add features is when they release another retail package for $60. Great game but I do feel a bit shortchanged each time it happens.
interesting....yamauchi is humble enough to over compensate for the people who are whining,i bet those people dont even own the game....
I have a question, I don't own the game: as of now, GT5 has VISUAL damages, but no MECHANICAL damages?? Seriously? I was ok with poor visual damage, but I always thought mechanical were there. So correct me if I'm wrong, but as of now, if you crash, your car displays some scratches (or more if it's a premium car) but keep running perfectly?? Seems to me completely ridiculous for a simulation.
Please, make it awesome. So the stupid trolls finally shut up.
Haters gonna hate. and 5 mill gamers after Christmas will be playing this awesome game.
It already is awesome!
I can't wait for this patch, and set the damage as I see fit.
This game will get better with time. Kudo's to them for listening to the fans. That said, now that GT5's game engine is in place, the development time for GT6 should be a speedy one.
Yeah, the physics are already set. Only a bit of improvements here and there now. I can assume that what really have eaten their time was this new physics implementation.
This patch isn't for gt fans. They're making this patch for the scrub ass critics and trolls who don't have the skills and patience to enjoy the game.
you right .. im happy with the game right now , i don't need that patch but it will be kool if they really put free roam ...... if they just continue puting patches this game will not have any problems and these trollers will shut up ....... PD can make the game they want but they need more tme and they get it now (gt6 ^^)
I dont care about Damage, really... if i want Damage, i have my NFS:HP... or Burnout Paradise. GT is about stay on track, and perfec your times, not crash
I thought GT was about realism and being a true simulator.
it is , and perfec your times is in real too you know ... racers try to finissh the lap really fast and gt5 racer do the same :P .. that's why i said on my other comments that gt5 isn't only driving , you have to think and study to get a good time ... every car is diffrent and alots of tracks soo it's really really big game .. @isa_scout yea , i said that befor , this game is hard and that's a good thing , because the best games are the hard games , because you get skills , gt5 is the hardest game i ever saw .......
I'm finding that, the more I play, I care about damage less and less. I've actually started racing with the express purpose of crashing (just to see the damage) but I find myself keeping racing as it's so addictive (even Arcade Mde, where there's no monetary or XP reward) - I just can't bring myself to crash.
why is damage all of a sudden so important?GT fans never cared for it before and the real fans still dont.
Because all the GT haters, supposed GT fans etc want this game to fail and the way to do this is to complain about the damage physics big wooopse f**king do.
who the hell tries to crash anyway?sometimes my heart starts racing and i get nervous when i accidentally take a turn to fast and i go off the track and spin around facing the wrong direction now add mechanical damage to the mix and your looking at one seriously tough game thats already hard enough as is. dont believe me? try getting gold trophies on all licences yeah its damn near impossible
I expect this game to severely improve and expand like a few games before it such as warhawk and mag. Kaz is too big of a perfectionist just to release (in his eyes)an unfinished game now that he has the ability to patch it. I'm sure Sony will support whatever he wants to do in the coming years.
`Im sorry there are no Mexican cars, whatever the hell that is, but you are what the spanish call El Retardo` HAHHAHAHAHHA
AQll the haters who want it to fail are just wasting thier time. Its not going to fail not matter what they say etc. There are to many fans who will buy it no matter what anyway, so just let it go... On a side note: This is my second GT game i ever ownd, A-spec was the first on ps2, and i couldnt play it at all, and i didn't like it. This game rocks tho !
