Here are some captures from the demo of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue now available on the japanese PSN.
game makes pgr4 and forza 2 look like burger kings pocket bike racer
...how about you compare this to GT4 and stop with the f**king digs at anything thats not PS3. No matter where you turn on this site there's always another f**king fanboy with his head up his own ass.
Now, lets get onto some subjective observations about the images.
1. I was hoping for a higher poly count on the track. I still see slightly angled corners (check out the white lines on the sides of the track) rather than nice curves.
2. Repeated textures. Given that Blu-Ray has bounds of capacity why are the environmental texture maps repeated so many times. Just look at the white fence panels for example, its the same panel over and over and over.
3. Reflections don't look right - they look all jaggy.
4. Cars don't reflect other cars. They do in PGR4 however, its not the best but at least its an attempt to do so.
5. Trees and foliage look average. Lots of layered 2D bitmaps to give an illusion of 3D. This is no better than how they did it on the PS2.
6. Dashboard shadows are jaggy.
7. Rear view mirrors (top and side) clearly show objects poping-out of view. Again, this does not appear to be much of an improvement over GT4.
8. Particle effects are still as they have always been. Dust acts like steam and its not effected by the draft from other cars driving through it.
Ok, so this is a demo but these screen grabs don't do the game justice in my opinion. Colours look washed out and although they look better than Forza 2 (if we must compare), they do not display anything thats light years ahead. However, in motion this game does indeed impress.
I think we should all keep the hype for this game to a minimum. Sure it looks good and will sell millions of copies but to me I think the PS3 could still do better.
Your a whiney douche, let people appreciate this fine peace of gaming. People worked crazy hard on this game and deserve the attention.
...so you're saying that nobody worked hard to bring us Forza 2?
When 360 owners try to appreciate that game GT fanboys crap all over them. I am in no way crapping over GT5 but merely pointing out some of the aspects of the graphics that were present in GT4.
You can't one day praise everything PS3 then the next day overlook aspects of a game that look and behave last gen. Nothing I have listed above could not be addressed by the PS3 and I dare say it will be in GT6.
FYI - I am just as critical as this with any next-gen title on any format that people proclaim is the next coming of Christ. However, which aspects of the comments I made earlier (1-8) did you find I was wrong about?
Oh yes, finally - at least I didn't just say the game sucks or hit disagree and not provide any commentary as to why I might think that. Not like so many spineless fanboys.
Again, this site is testiment to the Sony fanboy. That is, say anything against their precious PS3 or PS3 exclusives and they hit disagree like a pack of lemmings. How many of them took shots at Halo 3 because it wasn't even running @720p however, that was the effort of many people for many years. Basically, if you're going to hit disagree then at least have the balls to say why without it being a personal attack.
The fact of the matter still remains that GT5 will not look as good as GT6 but both will be released on the PS3.
the game looks amazing in a 60" 1080p screen.
Change cars. The GT-R view isn't included.. I believe this has to do with the fact that it has not been officially shown just like the front and rear which is masked. While photos have been leaked, these cars are licensed property. More content, possibly a GT-R interior will be added through the JPN Auto show later this month into next. Let me just say, interior view is AMAZING.
wow, i just felt something stir in my pants:D
This game is just phenomenal
wasn't going to buy this game, but jeeeezz with those graphics
I am starting to think about it.
well we will see.
I just played the demo and its so nasty!
Freakin' awesome shots. I'm getting tempted to make a Japanese account now.
The demo is amazing, it goes without saying. There truly is no competition in my mind considering this is nothing more then a demo of Prologue.. GT5 is about a year away still!
Like my title says, I can confirm the logitech G25 gated shifter is working! It's over.
Is no wonder why Grant turismo is a Billion dollar franchise.
i'm crying right now. :D
Sony needs to hurry up and release these games ASAP!! Grant turismo 5 is on my wish list.
08 is looking sweet for playstation.
Little big planet
Killzone is looking fantastic i am hoping it turns out to be a killer app
Socom navy seal
God of war 3
I cant ask for nothing else.
Download it now!
It's an awesome demo. It looks and plays great.
Edit: Yeah it's only for Japan, but if you create a Japanese account you can download the demo. I urge anyone, who hasn't already made a foreign account, to do so because you get a lot more demo's and don't have to wait for Sony to release in your region.
Making an account is pretty simple, you just have to follow a HOW TO guide.
it's only for japan users right...? so we can't get it.
Unless you have a japan account on your PS3.
you cant tell if its real or not.. lol
...if you think that image in your message looks real then you need glasses.
3 things jump out as giving it away:
1. You can clearly see that the grass texture map is repeated over and over and over.
2. No shadows from the light posts on the right hand side of the track.
3. The sky really lacks depth and definition.
If you're going to hit disagree at least say why you spineless fanboys.
If they are the 'only things that give it away' then thats not bad.
Even with your list further above (which I kinda agree with if I get very picky - which I don't), this dissecting of stuff has sunk down to things such as a texture on a leaf or a shoe displaying a non-bump mapped leather texture and is getting a bit stupid and is kind of funny. Going for negatives all the time must be depressing.
In another few years 360 and PS3 games will look like NES games and surely you are not looking out for or noticing these 'flaws' when you are driving round the track at 120MPH? The grass at that speed looks... green.
The impact of the overall image is convincing and the cars look superb. The lighting looks great and the cars look like they truly belong in the overall picture and not in some way detached.
Noone is trying to say that this game looks real, but at times the cars do.
This is the most realistic driving sim I have ever seen. I will be buying GT5 when it comes out and I am really more of a Arcade style driving game fan, like Midnight Club LA
so there i was playing after downloading the demo. enjoying myself as i always do. failing to realize that my brother a none gamer in every sense of the way was standing behind me with a stupid look on his face. he said what are you playing: i said.............it doesn't matter, just help me take the controller of his hands!!!!!!!!!!
Quit scribblin troll!
If you want to keep up,
JUMP OUT & PLAY~B3YOND!!
but the gt series is so addicting.. I just played the demo and this game is unreal.. Especially when your in the in car view.. Makes the game look way realistic...
Unfortunately, as always, you fanboys are overlooking the problems with this demo.
I can't believe how many jaggies are present in the demo, i'm running 1080p through a Sony X series 40 inch, this has got to be sorted before release.
The tyre sounds are still awful (no excuse) and the car engine sounds are very weak, i'm hoping this is because the featured cars are so new that Sony haven't had time to record them yet. The interiors are nice, much better than PGR but where is the animation for gear shifts?!!
The handling is spot on and Suzuka has never looked better but there's still a lot of work to do imo.
I tried to post some common sense observations above and the Sony fanboys go straight to work. I really wish the fanboys would just f**k off and leave websites like this to real gamers...or at least those who are mature enough to make a comment.
.....just played it, and wow, just wow. My faith is restored in the PS3, the visuals are astounding, especially the interior view. The way the light and reflections pass over the dashboard is absolutely astounding.
- Firstly the the car models are the best iv ever seen, but the environment is a joke and the car handling is sooo NOT realistic.
- The A.I is STILL STUPID and PATHETIC, the A.I cars still drive on rails, and if you brake in front of them they just ram you instead of going around you.
- Tire sounds still sucks.
- And the grass textures is just unbelivably crap its not even PS2 quality.
I wish these stupid GT fanboys would pull there heads out of their asses and see GT for what it is.
GT has beatiful car models and best graphics iv seen in a racer. But to call this game a sim just because it looks good is just stupid.
Great graphics does NOT = realistic simulator.
Polly has a whole lot of work to do if they hope to compete with games like GTR2 or Forza 2 in terms of gameplay.
Umm this is it? Anyway, I wonder about the features in this supposed sim. Heard from a source it is way behind another game.
notice how this demo is in the inside veiw all racing games look better in the inside veiw haha and gt5 looks expcialy good in he inside veiw that about it the car handle is garbage the tracks are sooooooo plain its astonishing only the cars have next gen grapics but with out an anti aliasing.
