Impressions: Gran Turismo 5 Prologue

Torrence Davis of The Bitbag writes, "Well the GT5 Prologue preview codes were sent out tonight. I was excited to see them in my mailbox and eager to finally play this game. Now let me tell you, I am a Gran Turismo hater. I love racing games and was highly disappointed with GT1. The car selection was off the chart, the racing options were great and the gameplay sucked bawls. I don't know about you, but something about hitting a wall at 120mph and continuing the race without a hiccup put me off."

This is why it has over 1m in preorders in europe alone

console war formally ends on march 28th in europe

tordavis3888d ago

What do you mean console war ends?

doodle3888d ago

that garbage box 3 FIX ME is almost dead in europe

with GT5P's launch it will be fully dead there. Wii outsells PS3 by a slight margin each week in europe. that will completely change when GT5P lands in europe

It will be all over for competition there

Gam713888d ago

Wow doodlebrains.

I could've predicted that response from you.

I predict that will be your same response for all your replies.

Hey, I'm right.

doodle3888d ago

none of the garbage box 3 fix me games even had 300k preorders in europe . Not even that GAYLO 3 had a preorder as big as GT5P's.

GT5P has over 1 million in preorder in europe alone --a place where 3 FIX ME died ages ago

Everyone with a brain except you GAYTARD can predict that console war fully comes to an end in europe on MARCH 28th 2008

However XTARDS dont have brain

Anyway we will celebrate DEADBOX 3 FIX ME's dead anniversary on the 28th MARCH

thats a promise

Gam713888d ago

I'll hold you to that on march 28th.

And halo had more than 300k in the uk alone

it had over 1.5mil in just the us
Ooh look proof.

but you cant read and comprehend that because it contradicts you so you remain in cookoo land like britney spears

I look forward to your childish immature reply.

oh and whats your answer to germany?

wow, GT5P turned him from a GT hater to a GT lover. that says a lot about this game then.

gaffyh3888d ago

Good to see that he loves the game now, but this is guy is a retard, he is complaining about this in GT1:

"I don’t know about you, but something about hitting a wall at 120mph and continuing the race without a hiccup put me off"

WTF does he expect it was an early generation PS1 game, the graphics were mediocore (by todays standards), it was their first GT game and he EXPECTED DAMAGE!?!?!

...and to quote Samuel L Jackson "Yes he deserves to die and I hope he burns in Hell!!!!!!"

Utalkin2me3888d ago

Well i was a gt lover but now i am a hater. Go figure

DRUDOG3888d ago

Man, I was laughing about that too. Dude is b!tchin' about a game that came out 10 years ago. Get a f'ing life, right? GT5 is looking better and better by the day and now that they've put the split screen in Prologue I'm even more excited.

PirateThom3888d ago

This isn't even the full game and it's already God.

Surfman3888d ago

that game is the only real racing game, nothing can supass that. All the time the developper spend on cars to test them, and then the time spent on the graphics... the Gran Turismo franchise will always be the best in races games

PirateThom3888d ago

Not only that, you know they're respected when Nissan asked Polyphony Digital to design the multifunctional dashboard of the GT-R.

Syko3888d ago (Edited 3888d ago )

"When Gran Turismo 5 Prologue launches, it won't let you create private races for just you and your buddies. Nor will it let you indulge in a spot of in-game voice chat. But don't despair, because that stuff's coming later, with these two features (and, most likely, more) to be added to the game in future updates."

Anyone else bothered by this? I mean it's not a deal breaker for me since it is coming, but I would be lying if I said I wasn't bummed about it. I mean granted I am not a huge PS3 fan, but it's little things like this that drive me crazy about my PS3.

Anyways I'll quit whining now and just hope this update doesn't take to long after launch to come out. Regardless of these issues it is clear that this game is going to be SICK!

Here's the Link I was referring to:

PirateThom3888d ago

I'm not really that bothered, I mean, it's been promised to be on the way and they probably want to make sure the netcode is up to scracth before trying to add anything else.

Bare in mind, bar GT4 Online which was Japan only and quite limited, this is really Polyphony's first online game and they seem to be focused on making it look nice, but also lag free before adding other things.

So no, I'm not worried, since Polyphony nearly always deliver.

Syko3888d ago

Ya Pirate I can understand that...but at the same time over in the forums here at N4G we were trying to get a GT tournament/race league together and now we are kind of screwed because we can't customize games and really talk to each other. Annoying to me just out of the fact that I am used to having the ability to at least activate a private chat during any game...These are important features to me and seem to kill the "Community" aspect of the game.

Oh well though. I will race past total strangers while laughing now. =)

resistance1003888d ago

@Syko 360

Completey agree with you, however at least we know its coming and remember this is just the prologue. Still at least this means by the time the patch is out, i will be online all the time, and everyone will have a chance to get up to speed before we race.

Marceles3888d ago

That would be a great addition once they add it, and will make GT haters at least acknowledge the game as more than just a demo. Also, I was looking at some youtube videos of the game being laggy online...I dont know what that was about...maybe because the guy had the japanese version, but hopefully the online doesn't get bad reviews as well.

resistance1003888d ago

I only experienced LAG once, and that was when i was downloading at the same time.

heyheyhey3888d ago

yeah i agree Syko

hope it comes soon
