Both GT5 Prologue and Racedriver GRID look amazing. Look at these screenshots and decide which is better.
I pre-ordered mine
Upon closer inspection GT5 still looks much better and it's very likely that Racedriver GRID is not 1080p 60fps like GT5. Still looks pretty good though.
Now I'm really really....amazed. This is just stunning. I can't believe the PS3 is doing this sort of thing only in year 2. This is nuts. I mean, this is like PC graphics card update nuts. No wonder Crysis on PS3 talks are heating up. The system is insanely powerful. Good job Poly.
Wow both are looking really good!
All in all *nothing compares to Gran Turismo. PS3 fans are getting the creme de la creme as usual when it comes to racing games and everyone on planet Earth knows it. (+) Kaz and the gang have already confirmed they will be dropping the damage in via dlc http://www.gametrailers.com... along with other goodies to show off in HOME after the full release of GT5 (oh yeah this is a demo folks ^^). Polyphony will never put trash out on the market and the damage to come will make Burnout crashes look like a fender bender. The only people mad about this comparison with GRID are X___ who are already stuck with 'ol news FORZA II & only want to whine because they don't get the Real Driving Simulator and have to settle for the next best thing with GRID, which is cool. All real world race drivers speak of GT and use it to prep before hitting the tarmac. Auto Shows use it disply their wares to the world, and auto makers like Nissan, and BMW use it showcase the performance of their real world counterparts. GRID looks good but is for arcade players, not aficianados of the sport. Drivers drive & win, pretenders crash and laugh. PS3 rocks.
what is thisrealyl neccasry. We all know both game are crap and GT is a higher budget game anyway
racing games suck almost all the time Super Mario Kart 64 and Chocobo Racing are the best
@sephi open zone -->
OMG you are comparing the best racing simulator ever to kart games...you must either be 8 years old or really really stupid.
wow, saying that mario kart is better than GT.....someone should slap you and get that nintendo fanboy out of you
You can't slap what is under extinction risk... There is laws against it.
Wow, 31 disagrees and 0 agrees for that comment. If you aren't a racing game fan just get lost.
Your stupidity is breaking new bounds (^o^)b
GT5:P is a winner. Unlike GRID, GT5:P is a simulator.
I dont think "it's a better game because it's a simulator" is a valid argument. And I do like simulators.
yeah, i'm not into simulators either. but still, i think GT5 Prologue looks just a hair better, especially in the car models. both games look good though, and sport the best graphics seen in a racer (or any game) to date.
Grid actually has damage ....which is soo appealing to me ...simulator or not damage is always good.. GT5 looks slighty less like a video game than GRID .... which is just insane to me
Is that why it doesn't even have car damage?
damn haven't seen a comment from u in like 2 years LOL!!! i remember you leaving because the site got outta control, with fankids and Console bashing. anywho. I have to say that Grid looks great, but still a far cry from what GT5 is doing, they are both Sims but GT5 is a high budget exclusive billion dollar franchize, years in the making. a multiplatform release cant compete with exclusives. that said i'll Give this game a try, but dont expect to be wowed if playing this and GT5 at the same time ^^ still My hats goes off to Code Masters they crafted a great engine for this game it looks good and out stripped GT's only rival in the graphics department at least... Forza ^^ LOL!! in any case, they'll need a demo on PSN and Live for anyone to buy this
sigh- Damage has been confirmed for most cars in the final GT.
And remember, since its on the PS3. It must be nitpicked over to the nth degree. This is also the same crowd that says Forza2 looks better and has better physics. These two games aren't comparative in the least graphically. Yet you have blind pundits trying to pretend that they can be compared to make them feel like they aren't missing out one one of the hugest game franchises known to man. A franchise that is promoted by race car drivers like the fellows at Top Gear and Motor Trend.
yeah, the fanboy kiddies turned me off of this site for a while. but things seem a lot more civil and mature here now, and i'm so glad for it. sure, everyone has their preference when it comes to games and consoles, but there's no need to bash and insult.
with no damage.
also important to note grid runs at 30fps GT5P runs at 60fps. Grid has damage which is nice but it isn't sim. Only non sim racer i am interested in this yr is motorstorm 2. If grid is nice i'll check it out but just as i didn't really like dirt i also probably won't like grid. Plus it seems to be over simplified for beginners. @everyone complaining about no damage. Polyphony digital have already said they are working on it and could still include it in the release of prologue via update. But as always Ps3 haters will always find one thing or the other to complain about. GT5P looks better and runs at 1080p 60fps a feat no racing game has ever achieved end of story. Also achieves more cars on screen as well. Once the damage gets added in it will exert its superiority on the world of racing games like it has always done while haters will complain about tire and engine sounds.
How to simulate on how to not be a racing game. Seriously there is no physics in the game at all. I have never seen a car that comes to a halt when you try to take a turn without drifting. And i can hit a wall at 100 mph and i don't lose anytime really. I dont know what kind of sim you think it is but if it's simulating a hotwheels arcade game then i agree with you. But calling it a real sim is just plain ludacris, and i could care less if everybody has the mouth around this game. I call it how i see it.
That when ever GT5P is brought up, people bring up the same argument every time and they get the same answer back. "gt5 is getting damage in the final version". Jeez people, get that through your head.
God think PS3 owners don't have to choose, can take both games, right Jenzo? Right??? Next time, Open Zone please -->. And everybody knows they are trying to get damage for the final game, Prologue is "just a demo" (demo with almost 60 freaking cars, online mode and a number of races).
why try to compare two games when there is a lack of information about grid. The trailer is looking astonishing, but is it in game? 1. Does the trailer is done with the game engine in realtime? 2. What is the resolution the game running? 1080p, 720p or less? 3. The trailer is looking to much CG, rendered with a software renderer. look at: The antialiasing (high quality). The motionblur (true 3D motionBlur with high quality). There is occlusion. For me it's definilatly CG. The game look impressive, but we must wait more information from codemaster. Give me bubbles please
They are comparing it by screenshots that are taken in-game, not the video.
If it's in-game, it's a version with all the option on and an oversampling screenshot like in GT4 when you wanted to save some screenshots of you're race on a usb key. So. So No real time. So let's wait more form code master. Does the game is some kind of simulation driving or an arcade driving? The trailer is stunning but... I need more bubbles please.
not in-game. I've played GRID and it looks like Burnout Paradise. Not that impressive. Yet.
GRID is going to FLOP big time.
It looks way better . GRID is just an updated BURNOUT with PLASTIC CARS. PS3 is the lead platform for GRID too. so nice addition to PS3 gamers who want something alongside GT5P
They compare it like GRID it's gonna be 1080p 60FPS What a bunch of retards, GRID is so out of GT5 league that they don't exist on the same universe. WHAT A SHAME, this was disgusting. GRID might be good, but it's a insult to compare it to GT5.
GT5 Prologue + GT5 ONLY on PS3! ;-P
GT5 looks better but we wont know for sure until we get the finished versibn of both games.
GT5 has no real car damage but calls itself a SIM? Actually thats more LAUGHABLE...yeah the game looks good but that's about it.
can you read? It has already been said that GT5 will have damage! And who cares? If your good enough at the game you wont ever see any damage anyway!
Spin of the Day..really
@ 1080p GT5's environment definitely shines and is superior. However, the cackpit appears to be clearly better looking in Grid. I'm not a fan of cackpit view because they tend to be kind of cheesy but Grid's looks very nice. I would like to Demo it. As for the game, I'm not a big simulation fan. Those who like simulations will prefer GT5 unless they want some type of damage, right now. Can't say arcade racing fans will like Grid, we don't know enough about it yet. Given Grid is @ 720p and looks as good as it does, it could have a performance edge. We just don't know. The good thing is, there will be choice. Forget the GT5 comparison, Grid is looking good. Be glad it's not 360 only.
I'll take grid, until GT series gets in game car damage, it's just an arcade game to me.
like i said, before if you want to play a crash simulator, Thats what Burnout is for.....
Burnout basically had realistic crashes (which was extremely entertaining), and thats about all that was special about it. Some of the parts of the game are actually meant for you to crash. If you think that GT5 is 100% realistic then go ahead get in a car and drive 180mph into a concrete wall and see how that differs from what is shown in GT5. I'm sure you will at least see a small difference. A real sim racer has realistic physics and will realistically show the outcome of a crash, rather than going 150mph and getting a crack in your windshield. Burnout is not a sim because the racing itself was not realistic, but the physics were. GT5 is vice versa. GRID looks to take the best of both worlds and fuse it into one game. Please don't take this as a bash on GT5, I am only simply pointing out a flaw in your argument.
Boldy.. you are talking about crash physics right? Because driving in Burnout shows how much of an arcade game it really is. The handling of the cars in burnout is fun but nothing near realistic.
I know that Burnout is unrealistic. I stated that the gameplay is unrealistic (boost that magically appears by checking traffic, easy maneuvering at high speeds, short braking distances at high speeds). I was mostly talking about the crash physics on how the car will get heavily damaged or destroyed in a crash. I meant the crash physics were realistic while the gameplay is not.
then 1 crash and you'd be out. Its simple, whether its your fault or not. What game is like that and who really wants to play a game with 'real' crash damage?? Strangely it reminds me of bushido blade, run around for ages and die with 1 slice to the abdomen. I've not played a game that had ultra realistic crash damage and for PD to do it they would probably have to write off a lot of expensive cars at least once just so they could make an accurate model. I say this because PD are anal in a good way that they go to the nth degree to replicate reality. If they do crash damage I'd probably leave it turned off just for the sake of having fun and being able to come back from a bad situation like the movies. Each to their own I suppose. EA/criterion did a good job (i cant believe i said that) but as you can see, if you've played burnout P, clipping your front axle would be enough to end a race. Lets see how PD deal with this.
grid looks more fun.while gt5p will get boring in about an hour
GRID looks cartoonistic (it is an UPDATED burnout) GRID will run at 2x the speed on PS3 just like Burnout did PS3 is the lead platform for GRID HOWEVER XTARD Grid looks miles better from PLASTICZA 2 and FLOPGR4 GARBAGE BOX 3 FIX ME fanboy go fix your RROD
pee pee, you can't get bored with GT5 because you don't have a ps3
I like you because you make sony fanboys look welll good Am happy you make it look like there no that bad
God! your a silly little Cunt. GRID is not lead platform on PS3, we don't even f*cking know what platform that is running on. Anyway, GT5P is a damn joke for a racing sim. No Damage, Limited Physics. There was even proof yesterday with that video on gametrailers. http://www.gametrailers.com... The FordGT comes off the jump likes its a balloon. There is no weight in that f*cking car. Its pathetic. Stop with your stupid BS and grow the f*ck up, you spend your f*cking life on this site! your sad! your F*CKING SAD! F*ck off.
You know, it's really sad that you are getting agrees for stating made up crap. Where's your facts that back up these claims. Heres mine: Doodle: GRID will run at 2x the speed on PS3 just like Burnout did. Well here's what the actual developers said in an interview with Videogamer.com VideoGamer.com: What framerate are you guys going for? A locked 30FPS or 60FPS - is it better to have 60FPS or 30FPS with motion blur? RF: We're going to be locked to 30fps. That was actually a really easy decision for us - the visual improvements I was talking about wouldn't have been possible if we'd been aiming for 60fps. Doodle: PS3 is the lead platform for GRID This is what the developers said in the same interview. VideoGamer.com: How is the development team tackling multi-platform development? Will there be any differences at all between the console versions of the game in terms of gameplay and graphics? Is there a lead platform? RF: As I mentioned, EGO is a multi-platform engine which has been designed to make developing on all three platforms as simple as possible. We don't have a lead platform, and the differences between the consoles will be pretty negligible. Here's the website in case you don't believe me: http://www.videogamer.com/x... As for your opinion on graphics, I will not argue you on that, because it's your opinion. You should maybe do the same rather than b****in someone out for thinking differently than you.
You are so stupid, did you know that GT5 PROLOGUE is called PROLOGUE for a reason? You stupid little douche, it's different than GT5. Prologue only costs $40 cause it's not a full game. The devs wanted to give the fans something to play while they wait for the real GT5 which will have the physics and the damage stuff. You're a retarded noob cunt and don't have your facts straight. And GT5 Prologue is available for download from the Playstation Store. You name one single game that is half as good on your crapbox 360
Burnout ran at 2x the speed on PS3 since it was built on PS3 as the main platform COdemasters/Criterion have already said that they would have PS3 as the main platofrm in their future games staring with Burnout Just watch IGN's tech head to head for BURNOUT BURNOUT not only loooks better on PS3 it runs at 2x the speed
Why are you bringing up Burnout? I did not once state that in my above comment. I would rather listen to developer's facts than you. According to them the game will: A. Be running at a constant 30fps all console versions B. Not have noticible differences between the different versions They also state that they do not have a lead platform. Just give it up, if you think the developers are lying then take it up with them.
wow thats a 1-console lover's comment, just accept that gt5 looks better and its a better game, loser.
DooDoobrains still spewing you bile. "GRID will run at 2x the speed on PS3 just like Burnout did" AT 120FPS!!! IS THAT POSSIBLE The Burnout demo on the ps3 ran at 60 frames but the final full games both ran at 60fps. Do some research and get your facts straight. Oh wait facts and proof are concepts alien to you.
GT looks better. But Grid looks good too.
but i dont think itll compare 2 the scale of GT, many xbox fans'll b happy that they got sumtin close 2 GT (thats not me slaggin of xbox fans off) but all grid has done is add damage 2 the cars, it would b cool if GT had damage but the people at polyphony or wotever there called hav spent all that time and effort makin the cars of GT look, sound and feel real only 2 hav sum [email protected] like me cum and wreck em, my moneyz on GT
GRID looks better than FORZA2 /PGR4 But ofcourse you cant compare it to 100% lifelike GT5P. GRID can be termed as a SLIGHTLY UPDATED BURNOUT No game can match that GRID will be better on PS3 too since PS3 is its lead Platform. IT will run at 2x the speed on PS3 too
Sony fanboys try and pin Grid as an upgraded Burnout due to the fact GT5's gameplay not being as next-gen. Damage in Racers doesn't mean they're crash centric arcade type racers. Like calling Forza 2 a customizable Burnout. You have to get some mental help. Grid is going to look better on track GT5 is missing details that holds it back its too sterile. The only thing GT5 has is the choice Codemaster wents with when it comes to color filtering. We'll have to wait and see, the Grid pics and vides are so mixed up between PS3 and the 360 its hard to tell whats going on the PS3 version is more color filtered and looks more un-natural compared to the deeper and richer colors of the 360 version. There was a post a few months ago that had both version's pics on one news post seperated so folks can see the differences. Grid is more dynamic in action and pics capture actions not meant to be seen standing still. I'v seen it too many times with advanced titles with very dynamic effects and visuals looking strange with pics but when in action the other visual piece of the puzzle fits as intended...
@ POG Dude you do remember it's going to be on the 360 & PS3 and your hyping this game like it's going to be on only the 360. As for your next gen damage control have you ever witnessed a 40mph crash than witness on a 150 mph crash on forza or grid? The damage is generic and not even close to "real."
Well theres one thing you completely failed to mention. one thing that will make GT5 prologue look better than Grid. Grid is locked at 30fps, GT5P is 60FPS
GRID looks like burnout paradise, its just not the same as GT5 graphics.
Maybe there is a different demo on psn that i havent played yet. You guys keep talking about graphics and i do not see it in the game. What i do see is some very nice car models that look fake. And i see nothing else in the game well there is like 2 little houses in a turn other than that it is nothing but a green field and hills. The lack of detail in the track is just astonishing. And for the people that keep saying well the real game of gt5 will have crash damage and such, we are talking about Prologue and it does not. And IMO grid will be a far supperior game than gt5 prologue. i have always been a big fan og the gt series but the prologue turned me off as much as liver and onions do. Sorry just how i feel and i could care if anyone likes it or not.
Grid looks just as good as GTP. There are slight differances that can only be distinguished by the most extreme anal grapchics whores. Usually I would beable to tell the great differance. I am a graphics whore myself, and GT is my favorite racer, but seriously, you guys need to stop flaming Grid,,, its looks freaking awesome, and you guys havent even played it yet to be calling it arcady or anything like that. Just shut up and by GTP, noone cares if you like grid or not. As for me, Ill be buying both,,
gt5p for the win
GT 5 looks more chrisp, but im still going to get BOTH ;-)
