GameTrailers.com presents three gameplay videos of Project Gotham Racing 4.
looks cool cant wait for this one pgr 3 was nice and this one should be also. gt forza pgr motorstorm some nice racing games out there.
now this game is supposed to compete with GT? Yeah right! Give me a break.
Well no, it's not... seeing how PGR is an arcade racer and GT is a simulator.
"now this game is supposed to compete with GT" They should forget about trying to compete with a much more talented developer working on the vastly superior PS3 hardware - GT on the PS3 16 cars 1080p 60fps. It will be an amazing accomplishment if these hacks can manage to get PGR4 to actually run at 720p 30fps and not be covered in jaggies. They only managed to get PGR3 to run at 1024x600 and 30fps, so don't expect much other than more of the same bogus marketing shots.
Stella Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is no more than a demo so its stupid to even compare Project Gotham Racing 4 to gt5 prologue but hey even if is a demo its still much superior to Project Gotham Racing 4 lol
Yeah you guys are right a demo that has been in development for like... let see... mmmmmmmm... FOOOOOOREVER... ;P edit; First of all, im not an xbot i might buy GT5 when the finish game comes out. Dont know yet. Second, im just telling you as i see it, and i think Sony is been working on this demo for a long time and thats why it look that good. Dont expect the final game to look better because its not. Not that its needs it because its looking great as it is. Now who's the one with the low IQ? probably you fanboys.
gt5 is been in development for like year the prologue is like a second game but compared to gt5 is no more than a demo btw another xbot with low IQ that is sad to not have gt5 in xbox
I'm a huge PGR3 fan and that game was amazing, and looked unreal. this looks chessy like they brought the graphics down a little. Maybe it's because of that whole 30fps thing. But I hope that was just bad video or something because I didn't like nothing I saw there. The not playing at 60fps is looking like a huge mistake. The game looks more arcade type style then how PGR3 was. The bike doesn't sound good at all. (what happened here?) I just hope this was because the video is not HD. I can't see how they would make the cars look less detail then in PGR3. All that CG they should before was all false hope, that game is nothing close to those CG shots. (Ok i'm just going to close my eyes and pretend like I didn't see that video, because I know the game can't be that weak, that had to be bad video.) I will still just buy the game and hope for the best. UPDATE: See even though video is not the best still looks much better in this video. See I just found this, and I will Present it as exhibit: A -because after watching that video I was like ok, everything is fine looks good, and put it back on the list for must haves.
Even tho that vid you put up was crappy quality.. it still looked a hell of a lot better than the ones presented.. they do not do the game any justice at all.
day one purchase for me....gotta love those motorcycles
The environments are what raise this game to the standards of a visual delight, but comparing the car models it doesn't meet the standards of GT Prologue I'm afraid. Sony haven't shown us gameplay or much in regards to the environment of Prologue aswell so it'll be exciting to see who has the Ace in that regard. Graphics = GT Gameplay = ?
It's impossible to answer. It's all preference. I myself I'm partial to both sim and arcade racing. So for me the gameplay goes to both GT and PGR. Other's may prefer GT or PGR because of their preferences.
Yes but I meant which game will represent its style of driving the best. Will PGR4's arcade layout be just as good, will it lack, or will it be even better? And the bigger question is, will that attempt be more credited than Sony's attempt to offer a simulator in Prologue. So which one does its job better..and we won't know for some time.
Well that's the waiting game we'replaying now then. (PS; Wasn't me that disagreed with you.)
I think i'll try this one, never been a a fan of racing games. But i think i would give this one a chance.
i guess is the low quality video that makes it look not that great. i think needs for speed looks better.
i mean, ps3 only after 1 year show amazing graphics in GT5:prologue.. while this.. looks like average tittle, definately not a system seller... p.s. i also didn`t like, type or tracks.. like driving in corridors..
PGR truly looks wicked, nice racing game with average 8-9 grade, but comparing it to GT is wrong. This is 80% arcade game, I see a lot of Burnout-style racing, like Drift, Position Gaining etc. I give it to PGR, it looks like a good game, and comparing graphics with GT5 is bad from Sony fanboys and MS fanboys. I stil don't get what's wrong with GT's environment? It looks identical to this, without paying attention to pixelish detail. GT - Sim (I prefer) PGR - Arcade (I don't like Burnout very much cuz of catch-up)
the game looks boring. The clip with the bike was just horrendous. Same animation. Graphics were nothing spectacular. Motorstorm kills this game in graphics, gameplay, animation. GT prologue looks photo realistic, and this looks like late gen ps2 graphics. Come on 360 zombies, open your eyes.
Gt5 looks like that beacause its been in development for like forever and you get only a few cars and tracks in a prologue. You'll be lucky if you get the final game by 2009. jejeje fanboys...
This looks FAR better than that GT demo i have on my PS3. So far 360 still holds the title for best looking racer ever.
roflol are you comparing gt hd ( gt4 in high definition ) to this game dude watch some gt5 prologue trailers ok
lol at fan boys talking about gt5. give me a break, is your beloved gt5 coming next month? if not, shut up about it. Yeah, it's very fair to compare it to a game that released a year earlier. How about compare it to forza3 then. oh btw, does gt5 have rain and snow effects? motorbikes?
Polyphony Dig. didn't make unrealistic game where cars and bikes duke each other. They made Gran Turismo (cars) and Tourist Trophy (bikes). Whoever said that PGR4 looks like last-gen PS2 game is out of boundaries. PGR looks sweet, but still needs a little finishing touch. GT5 Prologue won't have any accessories like weather, damage (which PGR doesn't have either), but GT5 will. We'll see how will Forza 3 manage to do on DVD with so much data, cars, weather, damage etc. EDIT: @synetic PGR3 had 90 000 polygons, PGR4 probably has more.
supaet gt5 have 200000 polygons PGR 4 only have 90000 about motorbikes ??? gran turismo is a car simulator i say again c a r s i m u l a t o r
actually GT HD was going to have bikes. You can see on their early screenshots. I'm guessing it will but the bikes will perform in different circuits. Also, GT 5 will have formula 1 cars.
Looks great the Sony fanboys are getting confused with replays and CGI from GT5-p, GT5-p on the track doesn't look like what these Sony fanboys are saying...
game play looks alright but was expecting much better graphics from the pics they have showed us before. i will give it a try at a friends house before getting this though.
When you see that pic i'v provived in motion it doesn't look any better than Forza 2. Not the cocpic put the enviroments.
You once used this image to compare that with. This is from Forza 2. I haven't played the game, only the demo, but the environments here are nothing to shout about mate.
i like how he goes.. wait don't look at the awesomely rendered cocpits, look at the stuff that you probably wont see because you will wizzing by it at 150 mph
Careful, if you disagree you'll get called a fanboy.......rotfl
The PGR series has one of the best racing gameplay mechanics with its kudos system. PGR4 will continue the excellence of this highly rated series. With Forza and PGR, the 360 owns the best of both worlds.......sim and arcade! :)
You some funny f!cks, it's a poor quality video showing none of the detail that is clearly evident from the actual gameplay pics.
so you believe still pics rather than actual gameplay video.. its nice to be blind
This title is looking pretty good. It's a shame they didn't try to pull off 60fps, though. After playing 60fps racers and going back to 30fps racers, there just isn't any comparison. The environments in PGR4 -- and I'm only speaking to the environments here -- are the best I've seen so far in this next gen race. I'm also specifically talking about in-game. People keep using playbacks and CG cutscenes to show the title's quality but thats a crock and the discerning gamer knows it. What we want is solid visuals in-game, while racing. Everything else is just fluff and banter for fanboys. Yep, the cars in GT5 (at least in what we have seen) are downright amazing. The tracks, trees, buildings, etc. aren't though. That doesn't mean it won't, of course, because that title has a long way to go and you can bet your bottom dollar they will throw every brain they have at it to push the hardware to it's limits.
they promisesd 60fps on PGR3, then blamed not having enough time and now they aren't even doing it for PGR4. Plus they aren't even doing night and day tracks due to lack of space on the DVD. And to top it off it doens't look nearly as good as the early pics they fed us.
LOOKS STUPID. nO BUY FOR ME
Not that you have a 360 to play it to begin with
@21.1 LOL yea was about to say the same thing. Like its even a option!
Of course 30fps does allow for generally twice as much on the screen, and that would account for why trackside detail is so high in comparison to GT5 at this point. All ingame shots so far have been beautifully detailed and it shows real ignorance if people are thinking PG4 will look duff just by watching this.
looks pretty good. tho i dont want get in to the whole PGR vs GT stuff, but it is unfortunate that PGR got some of the content cut off due size restriction...i bet it would of look even better(and on par with GT) than those game play clip if it wasn't for that..
i HAVE A 360 IF YOU DONT BELIVE ME GO TO XBOX.COM AND SEARCH Xx JTeCh xX.
hmmm this looks very downgraded from the supposed "ingame" rain shots, graphically kind of weak...
I refer you to the comment i gave earlier.
PGR3 looks better.
Yeah it looks so good that even SONY uses it to advert PS3.
sony you mean the webmaster at that website.
While its looks slightly better than PGR3, they are a big letdown for me. I think its partly because of bad lighting. Graphics crown goes to GT5 now more than before. Still I will get them both(not GT5 prologue, I dont care how much I hear, its not a full game in comparison to GT5, just an extended preview with a sampling of cars)
This game was that one supposed to graphicaly compete with GT5? Oh yeah... No damage at all, people wasn't complaining about GT don't have damage (when it was not confirmed)? Come'on, the guy just run the motorcycle on the wall 2 or 3 times and don't fall... Gime a break! I was hyped about this game, now all that it's have is motorcycles with cars. If GT5 have Motorcycles so I really have no reason to look forward to it.
Project Gotham Racing never had vehicle damage that affected your car's performance (throughout the whole series). Secondly, it's an arcade racer. Gran Turismo is not.
Oh, and I forget the only good point I see... As Darth Nihilus I'm not getting Prologue (it's a demo, and I only get demo if free), so PGR is, at least, coming way before than GT5... But still, I'll be occupied with DiRT and Burnout to even look in this one...
I guess it just depends on what you go for.My love affair for GT finished after the 2nd one and i then moved onto PG or rather Metropolis.PG is so fantastically accessible but still manages a ton of depth - GT requires you work more. Both are great games but the nature of PG means i end up finishing it.
this isn't meant to be a negative view of the overall game, but the handling physics seemed odd. the cars kinda floated over the roads like boats in water.
Good for PGR. Looks as good as burnout at least. They are both arcady racers so at least i can compare those. Comparing this to GT especially on a graphical level is far too unnecessary
Found a better quality vid This looks loads better than the ones shown here! Still gonna get this game anyway.. love the PGR racing series for pure arcade fun!
That is all, thank you for your time.
What in the hell was that?! This is just sad, you all can flame me all you want, I am a HUGE 360 supporter but that looked like total sh!t! Just like PGR3, PGR4's screenshots don't even closely resemble the game...that looked like a damn xbox game.
but not as much as this http://kotaku.com/gaming/sa...
mark my words, I don't want to get into the old Xbots and Sonydroids argument but clearly some of the PS3 guys have no sense of fun,the PGR series is by far the best example of online racing fun, if some of you guys refuse to see that then you will be disapointed with GT5 because i just cannot see it being better than PGR4 online.
The game looks better than that. here. http://uk.media.xbox360.ign...
That's just crazy. Never played the PGR series, but this looks absolutely stellar graphically.
These videos are'nt exactly the best to showcase PGR4 in all it's glory, but looking at the quality of gameplay ( not how badly the player who was playing this game at the time...and not showing the differing weather simulations, more in-car viewpoints ), it surely ranks very highly recommended indeed. The motorbikes vs cars are tops! Can't wait to get my hands on one once it gets released.
