Gran Turismo 5 Prologue's release date is finally known for North America. GT5 Prologue will be out in Japan this December and the North American version will be released on February 19, 2008.
Meaning that we should get the demo(English version thank GOD)in Jan. This is fukin awesome.
I motherheartin' love Gran Turismo. :)
finaly, I can get a game earlier than the US people.
But I have no plan to get a GT5P......
anybody wanna share ?
There gonna put it as Warhawk is, where u can't share it. I heard this game is gonna be pretty expensive, but I think its gonna be worth it.
Oh, I thought I can share every PSN download games...am I wrong ?
But I reconsider the GT5P share, GT5P file size may be 5 to 10GB so it's hard to send it to the US.lol
I want the pain it is not in JP store. So I thought share was good idea...
it may not be worth the price considering it isnt offering half of what GT5 will offer maybe those who paid for prologue can get lots of free DLC but in the end once GT5 comes out, it would feel wasted. I wouldnt buy it but its Gran Turismo dammit i cnt resist. I'll try to get disc version so i can maybe sell it once GT5 is here. still crossing my fingers for damage and weather but regardless GT5 is still the best racer for me.
Warhawk is "online only" so the rules are different. You can share Warhawk with anoter PS3 console, but not with another PSN account. If you share the game with another PS3, your account MUST be on that PS3 also, AND only one PS3 may play it per day (probably due to the online-only nature).
Sony's fine print:
"One time fee for download or use solely by the purchasing PSN account on up to five PS3 units, with no more than one activated PS3 unit within a 24 hour period. Content may not be used by any other account."
Thanks for the detail. It's really helpfull :)
Bubble for you.
Darn too bad I can't read Japanese and get the demo....
I cant read Japanese, but I have the demo. It is simple. Make a Jap PSN account and go grab the game from the store.
thats awesome then its coming soon! :)
Original GT5 comes late 2008. So what are the differences?
This one only has 40 cars and 5 tracks.
i think they're releasing a semi demo, and the full game so that the semi demo can cover some of the initial costs of GT5.
i have a jap account but have no idea where it is
You can't dl the demo, it already ended Nov 30...
wonder we can share the demo.
LOL, its pretty sad to think about that forza motorsport 2 already smokes this game and forza 3 will totally decimate it.......
and sony, that's really sad for u I'm being brutally honest here....
my friend thomas, doesn't even want to get a PS3 anymore. LOL!!!! he can't find one single game he wants on the thing, now that gran turismo has been clobbered by forza.
and he's a racing fanatic, so that's big.....very big.
forza still outclasses turismo in every way or form, and I expect it to continue......regardless of how much each one sells...
Your friend.. Now is he a race car driver? Did he race in professional circuits worldwide?
TOP GEAR believes that Gran Turismo is King.
You just got owned.
"Top Gear is a BAFTA, Multi-NTA and Emmy Award-winning BBC television series about motor vehicles, mainly cars. It began in 1977 as a conventional motoring magazine show. Over time, and especially since a relaunch in 2002, it has developed a quirky, humorous style. The programme is estimated to have 350 million viewers worldwide and 8 million viewers each week in the UK on BBC Two. The show is presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May and The Stig, an anonymous test driver. It is one of the most pirated television shows in the world.
Top Gear is broadcast in many countries; for a list of these, and of the releases the programme has produced over the years, please see the List of Top Gear broadcasters and video releases."
ALso, You dont see anyone from Turn 10 or Microsoft Games developing anything for real sports cars.
See what I did there?
Lube up next time. Because you just got reply-raped.
Yeah.. You should disagree.. because you clearly cant respond. Silly Xbot, when will you ever learn?
that would be like me going over to autozone and asking them which car is best to drive or race at the strip, LOL!!!!
and for yo' other comment.......eat this
http://xbox360.gamespy.com/... "Not everyone realizes this, but driving a race car is both an art and a science. You have your hard numbers, horsepower, torque, friction, inertia, and then you have the subtle nuances of each individual driver. How far do you push it? How close to the edge of control can you take your car and still come out on top? A good driver must master his car like a fine instrument and also tame it like a wild beast. If racing has never seemed this poetic to you, Forza Motorsport 2 may just change your mind.
We hate qualifying reviews with the old "if you like driving games, you'll love this" line and while that is true here we're going one step beyond this. If you want to learn how to race cars, if you have any interest in becoming a better driver on the virtual track, this game is for you. Yes, there are more realistic games out there, such as GTR2, and there are plenty of racing games that are easier to pick up and play, such as the Need for Speed series, but FM2 is different in a very special way.
Virtual Racecar Driving 101
The typical experience of an inexperienced Forza gamer goes a bit like this: you pick up the controller, marvel at the graphics, pick an awesome exotic sports car, start a race, and plow into the wall once you get to your first turn. It's not an experience most people enjoy. The developers of most realistic racers know that they're catering to a very specific crowd so they don't try especially hard to hook in beginners. Turn 10 Studios has crafted a realistic racer that can and will teach you how to play it if you're willing to learn, and without the use of mind-numbing license tests."
gran turismo 4 was a silly arcade remake of turismo 3, the above game forza MOTORSPORT re-defines what a sim game is....
let me repeat that: its art that re-defines what a SIMULATION RACER has to be.
endorsed by NASCAR and HiTechEngine TV themselves: http://www.carbuyersnoteboo... cars turn with real precision steering and power-rolls, turns no longer feel like ur on a floating brick.....everything feels like ur on a racetrack and plus feedback..
nothing out there hits it, even when turismo gets close....
Wow Greenenvy ... great comeback.
It's TOP GEAR - and it is one of the most popular motor shows outside of the US. Hell, I live in the US and I watch it weekly. It's a great show and they really know their cars, unlike autozone. ;)
I think that's been proven quite clearly, as Forza is closest to real life sim driving as you are going to actually get this generation.
And it has force feedback to finally, which for the next Forza will be even more of a plus. Turismo is good, Forza is simply better.
Regardless of opinion, Forza series is a better game.
The opinion here is "Forza series is a better game"
If we go to Metacritic:
Gran Turismo - 96
Gran Turismo 2 - 93
Gran Turismo 3 - 95
Gran Turismo 4 - 89
Forza - 92
Forza 2 - 90
Gran Turismo 4 is widely considered to be the worst in the series, no more than an update to 3.
Gran Turismo > Forza.
Forza is a good game.
As is Gran Turismo. It just happens that the entire world is waiting for the release of Gran Turismo. The CARS the CARS!!!
I cant friggen WAIT for this.. this is the main reason I bought the ps3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!
I used to always skip the prologues though... The PSN demo gave me a really good taste of this game.
I wonder if Top Gear will release episodes for Prologue, or wait for the full release?
No TOP GEAR support for Forza? lol.
THE STIG RULES YOU.
HEAR HEAR.... :) me too just bought the ps3 only to play the KICK-ÆÆÆÆS S game gt5. have loved gran turismo since number 1, i aint gonna stop!!! let the x-box people play their crappy forza and leave the REAL driving to us hehe:)
i wonder what the to secret tracks gonna be in the prolouge!!? i hope the nurburgring... thats the only track i need:):):)
have a nice day my felow Gran Turismo FAAAAAN!!!!
that was made of jaggies. OMG IT's Awesome. It got 200000000 jaggies. Did you know that's something antique that comes from Nintendo 64 ? YEAAAAAA FORZA 2 jaggies FTW
Physics = Terrible.
Car Models = Terrible
Environments = Bad. I wont say terrible because I've used Terrible twice already.
However for non-race car enthusiasts.. Painting your car like a Pikachu is king.. so
For painting custom laura croft boobs all over your non-realistic car...
Forza wins hands down.
I have the Japanese Demo for GT5, and it pretty amazing. But it not a game I will get, I am not into racing games. But any fan of Racing games that own a ps3 should pick this game up.
how can someone disagree with what this person said?
It the stupid troll. The know that this game is going to give every other racing game a ass whooping
I think its very unlikely greenenvy has a friend named thomas.
i just want this game already
I just wish they would stop all this prologue buisness.... just release the game.
For car models i choose GT but for physics and its gotta be Forza..... so far.
How come everytime an Xbox game copies a Playstation game they always say it's better? They did the same thing with splinter cell it's so annoying.
Idiots saying Forza CAN EVEN COMPARE to Gran Turismo is fvcking on crack. Gran Turismo is the 10th most valuable franchise ever created and the number 1 racing franchise ever created... hahahahaha Forza isnt even in the top 5. Ignore the idiots.

FLAWLESS VICTORY FATALITY!!!!!
the almighty Halo doesn't even make the top 20 in best selling console games....oh dear and yet we have to put up with 12yr olds telling us it's " the biggest franchise ever"lol, children....sigh.
you should have 2 bubbles ill support you on that. I own every gran turismo ever made(excluding gt4 prolouge) and ive played forza. IT DOES NOT EVEN COMPARE. LIVE WITH IT!
What like tombraider originally on the sega saturn which was copied by Drakes Fortune?
Now Drakes Fortune is better but that was copied.
Not to metion Haze stealing of Halo.
Everyone copies each other, if that makes for a better game all the better.
Shadow of the colussus and ICo didn't sell millions does that mean they suck? No there great games ignored by millions of users to busy buying crap like Fifa.
As for Halo...theres only been 3 games unlike Gt which has had numerous sequels and add ons....
I love GT and i think no.2 was the best so far and i will be getting the new one...i prefer the physics in Forza but the the graphics in GT.. both arn't perfect.
Luckily i can enjoy both.
just 2 more months! =D
I wonder if the full GT5 version will have Lamborghini Reventon in it. That car looks so bad a*$.
Nissan GTR is pretty sweet too. I made a jp account for the demo played it a bit but not sure if I will get prologue or just wait for full version.
They should make it so that those who get prologue can upgrade to the full version for like 20 bucks then I would be inclined to get prologue for sure.
I recomend http://www.psu.com/Lamborgh... Sweet ps3 theme.
Nice, am definetly pickin this 1 up. Im not usually a fan of racing games but i know nothing will compare to GT5. Comparing this game to forza is a joke btw.
im on fire- how does haze copy anything from halo other then the fact that its a fps?? Please explain that to me that ridiculous statement.
No one can because it's ridiculous
What's the difference between GT5:Prologue and GT5?
meh prolouge, ill wait till the full game comes out.
