Nice, lets see the guys at Turn 10 try and do this lol

Max_Dissatisfaction2494d ago

nah, they are too busy making fun games that are the only AAA rated racing games this gen...BELIEVE. thats how you sink 5 years 'making' a game

CernaML2493d ago

This the reason why driving the cars in GT5 actually feel right. :)

Bnet3432494d ago

They're too busy working on a game like their supposed to. A feature filled racing game, not a $40 demo either.

Aww how cute the fanboys are fighting over which game is better....

Anyways I hope Yamauchi has a safe race and whips some arse.

EDIT: Anyone know if the race is being streamed anywhere?

Honestly, I respect how much he loves cars, because I'm there too. But the fact that he's making games too pisses me off. It does explain why we don't have the dlc for the preorder cars, or dlc for the hidden tracks, or any update to prologue, when he said that prologue was going to be updated at gt5 release to have the full game without buying another disc. Kaz, seriously, good luck but quit one of your jobs.

Edit: mass disagrees? Seems like we're all getting disagrees for nothing.

Nitrowolf22494d ago (Edited 2494d ago )

the mass amount of comments criticizing him because he's at a race track. WOW, really? It's not like he's the only one at PD working on stuff. And plus developers can't have a one day break either?


If this weren't even posted, people would believe he's sitting at PD creating games right now. Of course he trains for this event. But the fact that people are complaining about that is just ridiculous.

WTF wrong with creating a game that's meant to be the best Racing Sim by learning what it's like to be a professional driver?

I understand what you mean btw. But why can't should he have to pick? Without this there is no GT. The fact that hid game made such a huge impact onthe automobile industry itself is enough aswell.

And BTW it's not like he's the only dev that does this. Literally all developers do things like this to look for inspiration. Guys behind Call of Duty go to real Military bases, interview real Soldiers and even fire real guns. Other devs are just like this.

n4gisatroll2494d ago (Edited 2494d ago )

No he can. But being a race driver, that's not a one day a week thing. You need to train hard. He's the lead dev on all projects, he needs to tell people what to do because it's obvious everyone else is kicking back doin little here and there. Like I said, I respect what he does. I'm jealous, truth be told. But he needs to decide if he want to build/race cars, or build games. If I were him I'd build cars and leaving gaming.

Edit: that's true, but I just want dlc for gt5. He needs to hire someone or give someone a promotion to make sure this happens. I know Sony would probably want that too, if we're willing to cash out, I dont see why they still have yet to release important stuff yet.

ZombieAssassin2494d ago (Edited 2494d ago )

He trains playing his games from what I hear (of course he prolly trains with real cars too), so he's basically making his games to train himself and does races because he needs to know how cars handle since he makes a racing sim...he wins all around.

Besides why only do 1 thing with your life if you are capable of more?

I'd love some Gt5 DLC though, I'd prefer new tracks over cars as they already have enough of those.

Nitrowolf22494d ago (Edited 2494d ago )

Yes i want DLC to, that's true.
I've notice the last few updates have been pretty large. I don't think they will release GT5 DLC in a small pack, i'm expecting them to release a huge pack.


it's been rumored since April. here a track list

so i wouldn't be surprised

n4gisatroll2494d ago


I hope your right and they do release a huge update/dlc, something like spec 2 or something as relevant as that.

This is some real passion for cars. Now GT5 does have it flaws but the physics are its best feature and this hands on experience definitely helps.

ZombieAssassin2494d ago

Thank you for the link to a stream, bubs+ for you.

I gotta say, GO Bergmeister/Lietz/Holzer/Long (D/A/D/USA), Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid.

I race here in the States and Patrick Long is a beast behind the wheel. He is also one of the only Factory drivers from the US to drive for Porsche. He also is a genuinely nice guy who has been a help to other racers like me. SO, Go Pat and Joerg. BTW, they are driving the factory Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid (Version 2.0). Yes a hybrid. It was the flat-out fastest car till it was handicapped by the race organizers just before this 24hr. But I would not doubt an overall win for them like in past races. The car is super reliable and only needs 2 fuel stops to everyone else's 3.

I also hope as a pro/Am driver Kazunori does well and finishes the race. Believe it or not that is the hardest part in a 24hr enduro. Hopefully he will be there at the end and place in his class. A little info for you guys who may not know much about this type of racing, Kazunori is not in a position or class for an overall win. He is there for a class win. There are multiple classes out there, he's toward the mid top.

Projekt7tuning2492d ago

The Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid was winning overall for sometime till this happened.

"The Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid was the next car to hit trouble after an apparent accident with a Renault Clio RS at Schwedenkreuz, the car returned to the pit and lost more valuable time in the pit box while being fixed"

You got to finish to win, even if your the fastest. Shame for Pat.
