Gran Turismo has always been known as a series that pushes Sony's hardware to it's absolute maximum, but then GT HD turned up and although it looked nice, it lacked that 'wow' factor.
first time, i seen a video played by skilled gamer/driver.
The game looks beautiful. I would like to see this demo on UK PS Store. I didnt want to create Japanese account.
Power of Green i am calling you out. How could you really think GT5 and forza would come close visually. I dont buy the better trees better grass crap as far as i can tell GT5 bests forza on every visual level. Some xbox fan took a video of his tv to downplay how good gt5 looks and some xbox fan site put it up so some other xbox fan could put in on n4g and deceive himself that forza comes close.
I can't believe he was driving that Nissan with a controller. No sense in playing if it's not with a wheel.
WHAT MORE CAN BE SAID ABOUT THIS GAME THAN WOW!!!!!!!!!!
CAN U PEOPLE SAY AAA??? HOW BOUT NEXT GEN??? NO GAMES MY A$$
It's a shame that even the best selling Sony franchise like Gran Turismo is going to be a flop thanks to the zero interest that people have for the PS3. Look at the last NPD Charts. :(
hahah oh man, some people are truly ignorant. yes of course NPD means WORLDWIDE SALES. Contrary to many a view, the world is a lot bigger than the united states.
i dont see any ppl in africa or brazil or even russia buying games so america is very important
the last NPD data was during the Halo Boom.
It will be interesting to see what the numbers do when the price not only lowers in the EU but also int he US.
I guess you don't see that Europe, South Korea and Japan is buying games either huh?
ALmighty if you want to play msg4 you have to buy a ps3, you looser.
ppl with 3 bubbles are less are really no different from each other. If he continues to make ignorant comments like these, I see him at around 1 bubble but the end of next week.
this game and mgs will hit more sales than ur tampon box360
You really don't have a life do you??? Quick question, why are you always on the ps3 thread when its known that you don't like the system? If you don't like the PS3 then don't comment on something you are never going to play. I don't own an xbox 360 so I don't comment on there news, you and other people should do the same....
I've been playing the hell out of this demo and it is Freaking beautiful on my 61" 1080p. If you like the other Grand Turismos then you will love this game, if you never liked Grand Turismo then it might not be your cup of tea.
i dont understand how people say GT HD lacked the wow factor??!!?!
it was a FREE DEMO OF A REVAMPED GT4!!
it contained what, 8 or 10 cars and one track? and now people say the same about the prologue demo?
its actually starting to amaze me that people are comparing it to full blown titles when its not even a title in its own right!
back on topic, im glad the writer stated that its the best looking racing game yet, as its true
I love Resistance dude. Not an AAA game, but that's why I keep my PS3. If you are a PStard who always cry because of my opinions, simply press the freakin disagree button and don't cry like a girl.
Almighty spends more time bashing the PS3 and calling it's userbase PSTards, but claims he loves resistance even though it's not AAA.
dude no one is crying, i bought my ps3 just for GT. i was even surprised that it played BluRay. Grand Turismo is the best car game every made. by the way seriously who plays resistance when there is warhawk, are you kidding?
...still (in-game) images do not do this game justice but when you see it in motion.....nice!
GT5 and KZ2 are the two reasons I will buy a PS3 next year. However, if GTAIV and COD4 offer superior experiences over the 360 versions then that will be two more reasons for me to buy a PS3.
I am also holding out for the release of rumble as playing any of the above games without it takes away something in my opinion.
Finally, this is a much better comparison. Sick of seeing GT5 being compared to Forza 2 (F2). We know they sit within the same genre but comparing different games on different consoles is ridiculous. I would love to see GT4 v's GT5 to see just how bigger leap has been made.
Sorry guys & gals but, IMO it still doesn't have the wow factor. Yes it does look very good but, no wow factor.
Check PGR4 video's for real wow factor!
Flame me if you want, I'm not a xbox freak or anything I have both systems.
And for my money the PS3 still playing catch up! especially since PGR4 has blown the socks off every other driving game ever made, including Forza 2.
lol, gt 5 prologue destroys everything what is out on the 360. but with your ignorance you will never see it.
PGR4 is awesome but you cant really compare it to GT5 or Forza 2.
PGR4 = Arcade racing
GT5 -Forza 2 = Racing sims
it shows ps3 power.again:
1080p at 60fps with 16 players
720p at 30fps with 8 players
***we looked at what we would be giving up if we tried to go to 60 versus 30 frames a second. We don't want to lose the visual fidelity... we made a conscious decision that 30 frames plus all the effects in the game was far more important than having a pure 60.***(WHERES THAT EXTRA POWER TO COMPETE AGAINST PS3?I THOUGHT PROGRAMMING FOR 360 WAS EASY?)
720p at 60fps
***In trying to shove every last physics variable under Forza 2's hood (and pumping the framerate to 60fps), sacrifices had to be made. Races take place only during the day and under perfect weather conditions. The horizon is marred by a tremendous amount of jaggies as aliasing issues persist in pretty much every area of Forza 2. Cars, which are the showcase of the series, have some distracting jagged edges. The real-time reflections sometimes stutter across hoods and windows. With so much focus on accurate models, damage, and a fast framerate, Forza 2 couldn't afford to render a dashboard camera, easily the most immersive view possible in a racing title.***(WHERE'S THAT EXTRA RAM FOR ANTI ALIASING?10 MBS OF NOTHING)
you just can't compare any of those games that have LESS on screen to GT5.less cars,lower resolution.
those are the facts.ps3 fans said it before:PS3 PUTS MORE ONSCREEN AT A HIGHER RESOLUTION.
resistance proved it.motorstorm proved it.heavenly sword proved it.lair proved it.warhawk proved it.more players,more objects....just MORE!
only GT can be compared to itself."X-tremists" bagged on one car in GTHD.but when polyphony hit us with 16 cars,you started pulling a background tree out your butts.
My favourite racing game on the Xbox 360 was of course Forza 2, in terms of graphics we all know GT5 will be in a different league. HOWEVER, from what gameplay Ive seen so far of GT5 Prologue is seriosuly leading me to question that Forza 2's physcis engine may be significantly better.
Forza 2 is the only racing game I have played which really does give the player a feel of the vehicles momentum, in terms of acceleration, braking and cornering. All I see from GT5 so far is seemingly over soft suspension which causes a nose-dive effect. If GT:HD is anything to base GT5 on, Forza 2 will still hold that trophy. I hope this isnt the case.
My main issue? That god damn tyre squeal. Tyres do not make that noise on any surface, Ive had enough track days to appreciate what sound tyres make under stress. The noise seems to be a single sound recorded in a 5 second loop and plays over and over, you can even hear little milisecond snippets of sound when the car is starting to reach its limit on corners. It really does take away the whole "Driving Simulator" experience with such a god awful noise like that. I really do hope they fix that. It sounds like a 70s TV show, a tyre sound borrowed from a royalty free sound library.
Still, very much looking forward to it. I just still wish I had Forza 2 to keep me occupied in the mean time. It really is the best racing game so far on any console. Its just a shame I abandoned my Xbox 360 in favour of a PS3...or maybe not :D
I know nothing about racing game,and GT5P is my first racing sim game.
But I do think you make two mistake,judge the car handles with a video and judge the sound problem with a video.
You should try the game before making any discussion.
As what I know the demo have two type of drive physic,I dont think you could tell which one the video captured,can you?
Fair point about the handling, it could be that the cars in question are setup with very soft suspension, even if the bumpers are leaving paint on the road.
In terms of the sound, its the same exact tyre sound as GT4 and GT:HD, which unfortunately was also very offputting those games too.
Dont get me wrong, I so want this game to be superb, Im just not buying into the hype just yet. I need to setup a JAP account on PSN and try the Prologue Demo really.
for some reason gt hd looks better then grand turismo 5
take in mind its a demo
