With the recent news of Top Gear - the BAFTA and Emmy award winning globally praised TV series - forming a partnership with Sony for the upcoming racing simulator, Gran Turismo 5; the official site for Top Gear reveals a few details about the game.
The GTR has been unmasked, you can now play it, unmasked with in car view
nice. Edit: I hate you... I am stuck at work.
Yeah, all 7 cars are now playable: Nissan GT-R Subaru Impreza WRX STI Lexus IS F Mazda Atenza Sport Daihatsu OFC-1 BMW 135i Coupe Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X
I dought they will reach that any time soon. At 6 months per car.. I think a game like this needs somthing like this though. From what iv hurd you dont tune, or paint(i know theres upgrades, im talkin tie pressure and rebound stifness, ect...). So 900 cars is a nice treet. As long as i dont have to pay extra. Is there upgrades in Prolog, i havnt had a chance to play it yet. It'll be nice to see how this comes out.
The unmasking of the GTR was awesome, trying to talk the missus into getting one :D
2011 is kind of far away. Hey but at least it will have 900 cars.
This is a game focussed on cars, not a gimmick.
that's 2 much!!! please more dynamic weather (storms, blizzards, ...etc) instead. I don't care about car damage, actually i hate it, maybe allow scrtaches, dents on cars that will be fine.
I agree that's a ittle bit too much cars ...dynamic weather would be kinda cool...but I dunno if GT is the kinda game for that also...as for the car damages I would love for them to implement that...makes gameplay more interesting...!!
No!! i rather have 900 cars then weather dynamic.
i do agree that dent and scratch would be nice... crash model... well the whole point of play driving sim is NOT to crash =P
Bcause this is the greatest racing simulation on all time.. I don't think their goal is to have you racr in water... I belive profesionally they wouldn't race it the snow or rain? u know? I think they want it to be reaistic and realistically its not too safe driving that fast in water. You would be simulating slamming into a wall going 160!900 cars will be amazing and there will be plenty of tracks in the final version... u guys know they will take care of this game... I believe the 4th best selling franchise of all time? maybe 3rd Lol.... Going to be amazing!
ill rather have FORZA 2 TBH
I would rather have 900 cars than dynamic weather but i really really want dynamic weather 2. They better have a minimum of 700 cars on the disc at launch going down from the number of cars in GT4 would be a shame. I really really wanna see car damage and i really really wanna see dynamic weather but i am playing prologue demo now and i gotta say am still loving it withougt all that stuff. Hopefully its in but if its not i'll take my 900 cars with a smile
We don't care, TBH.
they won't use the damage stuff b/c manufacturers don't want us to see their cars beat up.
crash damage is only good if you want to crash or see it. sorry but i'd rather drive than pay attention to crashing. people who want damage need to clearly stay away from this game and go play arcade games.
I didnt even know 900 cars existed....lol....
well they do exist now, 900 cars to choose from, you want 900 flavors, then gt is there you you to taste them.
can they be upgraded etc? i hope so.it would be interesting
I have to say they could use blu-ray's power better than this. Why too many cars ? They could make another Grand Theft Auto series by making 900 cars. Don't waste the time, make a big city with 200 cars and motorcyles + somethings from GTA series. Then people would buy it left and right
The 900 cars news is old news. They announced about this back in 05 when the PS3 was revealed and stated that not all of the cars will be available on with the game. You will actually have to purchase the cars which honestly makes sense to me. You get the cars you actually want. Something like 400 cars available and the rest you purchase online.
I hope those 900 vehicles are actual cars and not full of trucks and vans...
when they say cars they mean cars.
Nice top gear is my favorite car show, and gt is my favorite racing game.
900 cars coould be in GT5 cuz GT4 has 734 cars..Thanks to PSN could be sure of it
gt4 had lots of cars but i think it was the worst gt to date. if there are 900 cars, devs will not spend time fine tuning each one and modelling crash damage on each one. you will probably find that half of them drive the same.
Blu-ray up the ass, haha.
I moved from England to America last year, and no show on US TV even comes close to Top Gear. And 900 cars wow, I hope they don't degrade the quality by putting more cars on.
top gear is cool!
That is a hell of lot of cars, though I think that we'll probably end up with about 500 or else we'll end up waiting until 2011 for GT5.
Man that alot of cars and each car will have inside view man thats alot of work.
http://youtube.com/watch?v=... if GT5 can have 900 cars,then let it.beggars can't be choosers.bluray allows it.psn allows it.most likely each country will have cars to choose from.old and new.concept and new release.no other racing game can boast and say they are on the same level. first time i'll say this:GT5 FTW!!! mc hammer:can't touch this!!!dun nah nah nuh....nuh nuh....nuh nuh!!! mag lev...............
u might get 400-500 with the disk then they will add cars over time. Its not like they will make GT6 a year later. GT5 will be the only racer needed on the PS3 for atleast 4 years!
900 cars is jus stupid man like really i bet 75% of the cars will be crap and no one will wanna drive em jus like the last games.....i rather them toss out 400 quality cars and focus on the game not the stupid idea about tryn to have all the stupid cars in the world......like really step it up give us weather and damage and everything else weve been missn out on
GT5 has damage.
Do they actually race in rain/snow? Every race I have seen on TV and what not it's always sunny. So why would there be crazy weather in a racing sim?
I don't quite know what it was i was expecting from GT5 of late but everything seems a lot less stunning than i first thought.Iv'e been playing PG4 a whole lot you see and although it runs as 30fps, the positive of this is that scenery is so damn impressive in comparison to GT.The car models in GT are clearly a little more beautiful than PG4(still lovely though in PG) and the addition of 16 cars is certainly very impressive for a game that normally only ever sees 8 cars max, but PG4's environments are unequalled and greatly add to the thrill of tearing around these tracks.GT looks a little bland quite honestly if your only looking at the scenery. In contrast PG4 is probably the most fun i have ever had in a racer because of it's immediacy that GT is miles away from ever being. I still think GT needs to exist though and Poly will once again prove that they are the masters of the car simulator, but when games become this serious, you have to question if it's a game at all. One of the reason for my not buying Forza this time round was because it felt all too demanding - i devoted my life to GT1 and 2 and their very demanding nature isn't something you want to experience for a 3rd time.
Well it does but not the kind u will see. If u smash into someone with ur left side ur car will pull to that side. Its been that way from the start and i cant wait for the full blown game
of the same 100 cars... They always do that, they create the same car model and give it a different year and claim it as a new car. Seriously, drop all 13 honda civic models, 16 skylines etc, and put in the 2 or 3 models for each car that matters and add in a new game mode or 2... It's the same as calling all the cars in forza 2 that have different configs, and decals as each a new car.
You have a point there. Bmw 320, Bmw 320i, Bmw 320si, Bmw 320ci Bmw 320d etc.
that's the point.GT5 wasn't just a driving simulator.it was an RPG. you get a car,add hitpoints to it,and take out bosses with your tweaked car.if you didn't have the right weapon,you lost.sometimes you could beat other opponents with a standard car,but real fighters prepared for battle ahead of time.and you added other cars to your party. i hope they get remote play accomplished and just can psp gt.just think:GT5 from anywhere in the world.including the bathroom.lol. we know that all 900 won't be on disc.but it would be cool if it did. mag lev......................
You do realise it's just diffrent versions of the same cars. Porshe carrera 1999,2000,2001,2002,2003,2004, 2005,2006,2007 and so forth. Polyphony have this since GT1. It's not gonna be 900 individual cars otherwise the game would be release in the year 2304.
Hold on who says that the amount of cars will affect the implimentation of damage or weather effects? Clearly they have other teams designated to cars, tracks, physics etc. So i really don't see a connection here. Some sayin they will take less cars in order to have damage or weather effect is silly really. Clearly they have a plan an they would never have planned 900 cars if they thought it would cause a strain on their resourses and cause them to have to cut such hugh features as damage or weather. So lets stop this foolishness please.
AMAZING,i played GT5 demo yesterday the GFX is so amazing this game will rule.
but the gameplay is broken and poor
What part of the gameplay is broken and poor in your opinion? I just wanna know what areas you really had a problem with so please elaborate for me. *Jeperdy final question tune*
Poor handling of cars. Terrible physics, where you can use the oppenants cars as shields to keep you on the track. Rubber band cars. Being able to slam into cars without any penalty. I managed to slam a car into 1st place(WTF moment). Pedestrian AI. Graphics are great but gameplay needs plenty work. PSN: BrixtonSteve
For those who are questioning whether there will be damage:read somewhere the developers themselves said there would be damage. edit:here it is> kotaku.com/gaming. (sorry,do not know how to link)
Bloody Hell!!! Another Year!!! Aarrgghhhh!!! >_< $hit*@*#%!!! They should at least add the TOP GEAR test track with the now famous Gambon corner on the game series.... .... this wait is so frustrating!!!
As a car guy I think it's exciting....too bad I really don't have any other reason to buy a PS3 though, except for this game so far. I can't justify shelling out 500 bucks when I could be putting springs and shocks in my real car. 900 cars is exciting, because that's the only area where Forza 2 is lacking in comparision to GT5 besides in car views and over the top graphics. But gameplay beats graphics, so I really hope they get rid of the ridiculous floaty feel....Polyphony really really needs to learn to give the driver feedback like a real car does. ...and especially the brick wall stupid AI needs to be fixed this go around, otherwise it'll only be worth playing it online. But you can pretty much hop into whatever you want, which is nice. I just have to wonder how long it'll be until Forza 3 comes out in comparision to GT5....sheesh.
I think you should go over to a friends house who has a PS3 and have them download the GT5 prologue because the floaty physics and brick wall stupid A.I. has been address and improved. I wont over hype it for you just try it an let us know what you think.
Having loved GT ever since the first one, I must truly say although I have no doubt the game will be great the wait is ridiculous. I am a firm believer that quality takes time but damn this is getting crazy.
i dont remember how many cars there were in forza2, but i can assure that most people only used at max maybe 20% of the cars available. to think that in a racing sim youll be using all 300-400 or 900 cars is insane. for both forza2 and GT5 developers, please spend more time on the game itself!!!
900 cars, where are those whow said: Blu-Ray I don't need. It is impossible on Xbos 5gb. Blu-Ray is 50 GB.
but i would rather have the cars get dirty as the race goes on instead of car damage, they always seem to include a car wash and oil change, but honestly the cars never really look dirty. I think it would be cool to have rubber streaks on the windows as the race progresses, especially the endurance races.
wait did i just read rite 900 cars wooooooow XD must get must get this game:D:D:D
