Can you tell the difference between GT5 and real life?

Chris Powell from ps3fanboy writes.

"The graphical line separating video games and real life has been getting thinner and thinner with each passing console generation, and the Gran Turismo series always seems to be the one leading the charge.

Harnessing the PlayStation 3's graphical power, Gran Turismo 5 features the most realistic graphics to date. So real, in fact, that many people can't tell the difference between an image from GT5 and its real-life counterpart. To prove this, a Neo GAF forum member created a quiz featuring screens from GT5 and GT5 Prologue that will have you staring inches away from your monitor trying to discern the difference."

11 out of 15. But I kind of cheated on some. One you can see part of a Gran Turismo license plate. On another you could see the GT pit crew members working on the car. And some of the screenshots just looked familiar from what I've seen before.

^Same here, the familiar GT pics with the garage background and the tiled streets gave it away.

I got 10 but if the cars had been cut out or new exclusive screens had been used that number would have been way lower. The track can give it away a bit but I would rather use track polygons on the cars because its a game about cars (!).


I cheated also, GT logo, the guys working outside the car, some sceneries... 13 of 14. The 15th are both the same.

Don't listen to the advise of xbots when they suggest you buy an xbox360. They're not intelligent enough to give advise. Look at their comments. Look at their Grand Point Averages. Look at the neighborhoods they live in. Look at their choices in spending money on consoles.

Most likely, if you listen to the advise of poor and dumb people, you'll only end up poor and dumb like them. Learn what NOT TO DO from the xbots.

XBOTS, why is 3x5 and 5x3 the same? No intelligent person would buy an xbox360. Period...

Alvadr3813d ago

I agree with your opinion on the tracks.

However the cars you see in the picture are the same models used in the game/replays. Which means they are all Great.

synce3813d ago

What should the tracks look like, in your opinion? PGR4's? I hope you know this is a racing sim. Real life circuits - are - that bland.

PopEmUp3813d ago

You forgot something
GT5 feel great!

BaMYouRDeaD3813d ago

That's simply amazing. I only got 4 right on the quiz out of 15 =P

SWORDF1SH3813d ago

i got 8. and thats only because i rekonosed some stuff in th e picture from trailers like the brick paved floor and one of the pit crews knee


but I actually look at pavement and external environment for clues. I'm pretty sure that by looking at cars alone will give me only 3-4

InMyOpinion3813d ago

I actually got 14/14. They did'nt tell me if the last one was right but I'm pretty sure it was.

TalyngarTheBlack3813d ago

Polyphony never disappoints. Can't wait for Prologue and then next year the glorious GT5.

emaddox843813d ago

I thought I got them all, but I got 11 of 15.
