GT Planet has an interview with Kazunori Yamauchi about Gran Turismo 5.
The NASCAR implementation is tricky but I do think its looking amazing at this stage.NASCAR is a huge license and to see it on the same game with Rally is difficult to believe.Hopefully GT5 is as bold and revolutionary as everyone is hoping.
Its kind of annoying that every interview is clearly from E3, where he stated many times hes not talking about GT5 at e3, just the crappy portable game that I didn't shell out 600 dollars for a PS3 for. You know, that one? I'm passed the point of looking forward to GT5, im sure it will be great once it finally shows up, but PD is serious as hell about the media blackout. I mean even in the year 2000+ Everything, and i mean EVERYTHIGN is leaked via TMZ or some random poster on a forum. I am shocked that not 1 single feature has leaked from the halls of PD. KY knows driving, and knows what we have all wanted because hes a car enthusiast as well. The only things im really gunning for is having racing style time penalties for cutting tracks/cheating & a spectate mode for online. Would be nice to just watch people race until you're ready to hop in yourself. Like with a POV from the stands. Everything else im sure is covered.
Nothing new from this interview. Europe is waiting PD... Europe is waiting. _____________________ GT5 Prologue: US - 0,67 million JP - 0,56 million EU - 1,7 million <<
http://www.polyphony.co.jp/... Few more people want it than that. :P
But then look at how many European's bought GT4 Prologue and then how many bought GT4 itself: GT4 Prologue: 410,000 GT4: 6.3 million That's 15 times more...meaning that if 2.1 million Europeans bought GT5P..then GT5 itself will sell.......32 million copies LOL :P
It really is amazing that nothing has leaked out about GT5 yet, but that's goes to show what happens when your production team works as one entity and are dedicated more to Ultra-High-Quality and production values, rather than a quick Chinese-owned American dollar. Kaz: "We're not very familiar with NASCAR, here in Japan.." That's ok Kaz. All you have to know is that NASCAR fans don't give a shyt about you or Japan and have no desire to learn anything else outside of the circular nature of NASCAR driving. With that said, you're going waaaaaayyyy out of your way here for a demographic that goes goo-goo ga-ga over stuffed deer and boars, rather than LeMans ready Mercedes and Audis. Throw in any random racial slurs to complete the NASCAR tour and the obligatory, "Git 'er done!" Oh yeah, and NASCAR fans don't own hi-tech, like PS3's.....? In the end, I'm not mad at you Kaz, take as long as you like - I will be waiting to spend all my cash on your game and dlc. After all, your only competition is actuality.
I don't even like nascar and I still found your comment offenseive. You just take a whole group of people and lump them into this broad category. Thats like CNN or FOX news with a story about how ALL gamers are fowl mouth kids who live in their parents basements and shout racism while online gaming in Halo. You see how stupid that sounds, half the people on this site don't even have a 360, and if they did they would skip Halo because they feel it's over rated. Your as ignorant as those who lump gamers all into a stereotype. Wow why can't people just STFU about other groups of people that they don't even know. Who the F are you to speak for all Nascar fans.
LOL .. dude, because I'm from Texas (did you watch the video?) and have been to NASCAR races and have heard and seen in action how this group of "fine citizens" behave on a VERY consistent basis (like all my life - lol). So, take off your naive and politically correct goggles, grow some thicker skin and GET REAL. I am.
GT5 will be PERFECT. It will not be a yearly edition with cosmetic updates like its rival on the 360. GT series will not be turned into NFL, FIFA or NBA series. GT series is the leading racing sim. When some PD staff tried the rival game at E3, they knew immediately that the game was all hype and no substance. PD aint afraid at all. GT5 is the king.
plenty of people who love nascar that don't act like that, I know at least 3 white collar business guys who like Nascar and they don't fit your stereotype. Maybe its just you Texans, maybe your all savages. (sarcasm)
And as such, GT5 will most likely be fully revealed only at TGS. Although if it does come out this year, then I would think they would have to make a showing at this years "Leipzig" or whatever its called nowadays.
I know there are some other type of people (white collar) who like NASCAR too, but those people are way, way, waaaay in the minority dude. Most are like I deftly outlined above. And yes, you are correct there are a ((LOT)) of savages here in Texas http://bit.ly/10MBAg 8D
Need to remember that when NASCAR was showing signs of slowing down, they began allowing BYOB and BOOM! NASCAR was super popular! Any race circuit that encourages you to bring your own booz has got my vote. PERIOD.
WOW @ WRC and Rally, god they look so good, cant wait. I think its gonna be amazing. And yes, NASCAR is sh1t, I'd rather PD dedicate that time and resources used for NASCAR on something else.
nascar is not a redneck sport or an unpopular sport! http://www.jodyfolice.com/d... Anyways, I hope they update the drivers stats and their cars after every year so anybody is not stuck with old cars after playing the game after a couple years.
like...you know...more target audiences this time around. I was never a fan of GT and only have played the one that they released after GT3 and then a little of GT4 prologue! I was never a fan of real driving game! but after GT HD, (yet to try GT5 Prologue) I am looking forward to GT5! plus, I'm a huge rally game fan and WRC is included! that's a +++ for me! I am just curious of how realistic the damage will be since damage plays a big role in rally by I have faith in PD! I think, I'll get both GT PSP and GT5 and will save some money for the G25 racing wheel! that one is so damn expensive but it sure looks awesome! please make this one this year's release, PD and millions will be happy!!
Funny interview. It's amazing how diverse Sony's lineup is.
Do wonder to what extent PD is going to implement damage. I know that I am a minority but never wanted damage in GT, not yet anyway. If they introduce fake and unrealistic damage like all game devs have implement in racing games sofar it will hurt GTs reputation in the car industy. KY always said that if they were to introduce car damage they will do it well. As powerful as the cell is I really do doubt that it can simulate realistic car damage. If damage is introduced it should be for an arcade mode only for video gamers that have been crying for arcade/fake car damage like in Froza, grid and MS. Leave real physics car damage simulation for the PS4 when it has enough processing power to do so. Last thing PD needs is for GT to be branded with other game for fake/urealistic car damage simulation.
It's about balance. I'm not a fan of the bumper car mentality that you can get away with in some past GT's, but being able to wreck other racers isn't what GT is about either. It's going to be a tough balancing act, and I'm curious to see how they pull it off.
Based on the very, very brief clip we saw in the trailer, I think Polyphony are well aware of how this needs to come out. They're perfectionists and I saw nothing less than perfection in those brief seconds, from the bonnet lifting and falling, to the bumper coming off the body to the scrapes along the paintwork. Damage is one of the most requested features thanks to Forza. Forza's damage, though, is as unrealistic as Gran Turismo's lack of damage. 100mph crashes into walls shouldn't knock the bumper off, it should kill the car. I hope that is represented in Gran Turismo's damage, it's more important than how many bits fall off in a very unrealistic fashion.
but would the physics be as good as their driving simulation?. Its really really hard for me to believe that PD is able to pull off realistic car damage modelling something the car industry spends billions in carrying out. Not with one cell processor anyways. PD never included car damage in GT not because they don't have the techinical capacity but because console are not nearly as powerful enough to carry them out. For physics calculations in realistic car damage modeling you will basically need a super computer to process them. Up to know people are still confused about this. PD could have easily included cosmetic/fake car modeling like grid and Froza since the PS1 era but they don't want fake. Fake is good enough for other video games but not for GT as GT is for professionals as well. GT was never just a video game for video gamers only.
The caliber one can only find with true next gen gaming.
Well chaps, since Forza3 is already said to be the "definitive" racing sim this gen PD better not waste time on that weather BS! Or night racing-Forza is doing it ALL in the daytime and in sunny weather-which is OBVIOUSLY the definitive Le Mans experience too! So PD, that's more choices of paint colour and less weather and fewer track conditions and no day/night stuff, K? Why waste time on things which actually change real life racing conditions eh? It's not like either GT or Forza are meant to simulate anyt...oh. Riiiiight.
That's like stupid Tiger Woods EA golf, with no rain "NO RAIN"! I played it for a month and realized I hadn't seen it rain! Haven't touched that game since and gave it to my friend.(note 07) No night time or Dusk golfing where the sun gets in your eyes, just noon golfing as if a game of golf could be over in an hour! As if the random out of bounds shot(no matter how straight you hit it), just cause your beating the computer badly, wasn't bad enough. When you leave out something so important, it completely ruins the whole game!
Hmmm... I played a Tiger Woods demo a month or two ago and it had rain and a sunset. So obviously they've improved it. Not really relevant, just saying. I think accurate damage can be done on the PS3, I'm not sure why it couldn't. It just takes a little trickery, like pretty much any other effect in videogames. However, it does take time to do. So are you willing to wait for accurate damage?
This is one game that I am really looking forward to. Roll on release time.
'Aargh! Release this masterpiece as soon as possible! Mmm, I smell toast. Quickly! To the kitchen!'
If GT5 comes out this year, its game over and bye bye, stupid xbots. And you fking know it.
just like uncharted, R2, LBP, KZ2 did right? YA, YA, YA the whole xbox crowd have heard it before time and time again. PS3 is still in 3rd with YoY drop in sales. You are just another Sony Droid saying the same Pro Sony Crap over and over when history continues to repeat itself with again poor sales of top quality AAA Sony games. GT5 WILL SELL GREAT but i can assure you, it will have NO effect on the 360 and it's sales. This will just boost PS3 sales. This will effect the PS3 but not the 360. 360 has its own racing game, and right now the market is FLOODED with great racing games, especially when they are all releasing around the same time frame...well except GT5 since nobody knows when its coming out.
Dropping his pants And talkin outa his huge Fat Ass Again
LMFAO @ Nelson, "Man of the Rear" XD Dont know how you come up with all those things but here's a bubble, rofl!
fanboys i don't mind. its hypocrites like you that ruin gaming for people. have fun with all your hate. :)
GT sucks blue ball of fire. Take a look the best racing games in simulation its still the Forza franchise look it up fandroids. GT has nothing to offer except more of the same junk and the graphics are 300,000 poligons per car in GT, while 360 has 1,000,000 and it does not stop there, the environment its more detail in the 360, plus new tracks. What does GT brings to the table, let me see what they always do: Race with the same lame cars Get your stupid license Simulation mediocre at best Inferior graphics Busted frame rates Download 50GB to your hardrive 0 online play Chopped up graphics and glitchy Always the same tracks Fandroids masturbates to incoherent gaming GT 5 forever it will be ready after another demo were suckers paid for it @ Fathead below, I think you meant to said unequal garbage, don't worry I always take care of dumb statements. Your welcome.
Thebudgetgamer, take a look at nlvwithgms's post. I think that proves your statement is false and pretty much gives the 360 crowd the crown of idiots. Talk about ignorance there rofl, nlvwithgms has clearly never heard of Gran Turismo..
dont own a 360 YET, but soon enough. then i plan on buying both gt5 and forza 3. :) BTW: i was bashing moty.
You said it yourself... "history continues to repeat itself with again poor sales of top quality AAA Sony games" You have to understand that PS3 fans dont care about sales, they care about all the AAA exclusives on the PS3. This is why I prefer the PS3. Its games make the system better than the 360 imo. Sales dont make one console better than the other, just look at the wii, it sucks!
A true sim racer of unparalleled quality only on Playstation 3. Casual gamers looking for an arcade racer can pick up Forza 3 or Mario Kart Wii
hoping for some gt5 news at tgs and a surprise release date in 2009 for japan atleast.
When this game comes out, it will be like the last racer you need to own for the next few years. Its got everything, Drifting, Nascar, Formula, Rally, etc. Can't wait to take the top gear track for a spin.
Interesting interview. Not a fan of Nascar personally but I'm sure GT5 will make it fun. Come on GT!
If they allow me to drive a NASCAR on a WRC track against supercar, that would be fun. Otherwise making a few hundred left turns doesn't really excite me.
Anybody know whether a special GT5 steering wheel is planned? I would love if they planned a special edition for GT5 which included a new generation steering wheel controller.
So...according to the video, the game is not done yet and there is no set date, and they are still applying features to the game...This is all said in the video. This game is NOT coming out in 09 and i am willing to speculate a release around Q3 in 2010. It doesn't take too many brain cells to know that When Polyphony checked out Turn 10's game at ES (its been documented here on N4G), Polyphony decided to up their game with a more competitive game by adding features that weren't previously in the game from the notes taken at Turn 10's booth. With the implementation of the new features in GT5, ofcoures its not going to get a release date and ofcourse its going to be in development longer as every car (and there is a lot of cars) has to be adjusted to compensate for the new programming. GT5 WILL have unexpected features and will surprise a lot of people. And you will be able to see that Polyphony received their inspiration from Turn10 and Forza 3. @SimonSaysBuyPs3 - GT WAS the greatest selling franchise when there was NO COMPITITION in the market. GT has gone down hill since Forza was introduced into the market. FACT. I believe that GT 5 will have surprises in the game that have yet to be announced becuase this is their first "next-gen" game and they want this game to go head-to-head with Forza 3.
Because F2 was such a good game. But then PD wouldve already implemented the stuff in F2. Why can't you just be optimistic, its the best selling racing franchise, and sales usually mean everything for xbots. Even without sales in mind, best racing game is Gran Turismo, very shortly followed by Forza ofc.
F2 was a good game, actually rated higher than GT4, GT4HD and GT5P. Forza (2005) - 92 Grand Turismo 4 (2005) - 90 Grand Turismo HD (2006) - 82 Forza2 (xbox 360) 2007 - 90 Grand Turismo5 P (2008) - 80 Metacritic There are some new features in F3 and maintains the old ones, but there is only so many features you can add into a racing game without cluttering it with crap, but this is about GT5 not F3. GT has had very little features through every iteration of GT which is one of the major factors it is losing ground to Forza. This has been stated time and time again through the industry. GT NEEDS to add more to compete. And i bet that they are currently placing new and exciting features into the game. I am sure we will be suprised.
exciting new features in F3 like weather,night driving..oh but guess you bots just like to put stickers on your cars now go pray to your holybox
but didnt gt5p outsell forza2? lol. :) isnt that the only thing bots care about?
according to your theory gt3 pwns all
Quit comparing metacritic reviews of Forza's full games to freakin demo's of GT. Their has not been a full release of a GT game this gen yet.
Ok its quite clear you an 'xbot', you say that GT hasnt expanded its features but its because you heard it from that Forza dev, who I would like to add has noooo respect for the creator of the best racing franchise (PROLOGUE even being only a prologue matched Forza 2 a full game in sales). Honestly that guy is talking crap GThad so much in the first place, even for GT4, they managed to put in a wicked photomode, driving missions, a new HUD, mileage as a factor, spoilers, LAN play, it was even HD! HD on a ps2! Oh and the content, 700 and something cars. Now with damage and more customization coming to GT5, I ask you to stop being so jelous of the opposition, and just try and play as many sims as you can this gen. Im looking forward to two games, even though I only own a PS3, can you not do the same? And so you know those numbers on meta don't mean anything to me, however it seems to for a lot of bots, turn 10 might aswell throw 99 on the cover and "WOW" the crowd.
GT5 will popular on USA, because NASCAR. 8) can't wait on PS3, not RRODBOX. please not buy Forza 3, because Forza 3 is bored.
Want GT5 That Much Then They Should Buy a PS3 Haa Ha
Gran Turismo is known as "The Real Driving Simulator". If you like NASCAR or prefer Rally Racing or just like to hop in a vehicle that you probably won't ever get the chance to drive in real life, and feel how close to reality this game gets with those cars..No wonder pro's practice with GT. I see GT5 as....ah sh!t I cannot wait to be immersed by this next iteration for months!!!!
So much rolled into 1. Will look to get one of those gaming chairs with Logitec Wheel. Rally to me is the best type of racing. To me it requires more skill and I like the driver/navigator team aspect. Other racers coming out may be good maybe great but this will be all the driving sim game I'll need.
they should put motorcycles in gran tursimo 5 and by the way i cant wait tell this game comes out!!!!!!!! :D
No they shouldn't. As a former biker I feel that bike racing loses nearly everything when translated to games. A modicum of how it feels to handle a fast car is possible in todays games with force feedback, LLogitech wheels, sequential paddle shifts etc, etc. They can even simulaye how the track getting wet can alter all this but not so with a bike. You drive a bike with all your weight, all your body-it truly does feel like man and machine are sharing aumbiosus of some kind when it gels properly. Yes, the acceleratin can be done but the fact that riding a race bike feels like you're strapped to a rocket just can't. Obviously the adrenaline from driving a fast car is also mainly lost in a game but as cars are less raw and more subtle than bikes less os lost in translation-esp with todays cars having so many driver aids added electronically anyway. Just my opinion but without some severe motion control and feedback tech you just don't get the same realism as you can with cars-bike sims even on PC hardly feel any more real than Roadrash does on Megadrive! Just an old bikers opinion!
Maybe that's why they are so tight lipped about the game right now, or maybe they have some other GT5 surprise coming? Maybe this is the reason for the long conference Sony will be having at Gamescom? Certainly hope so...
If it's christmas then so be it but I want this game looking pretty whether in 720 or 1080 I want some decent AA and course perfection. I can wait until next summer if I have to.
What does he mean when he says 'there are not so many new cars that werent in GT5P' does that mean there will only be around 100 cars!?!
Sounds quite roughly transalted. They ask him if there's any cars in GT5 that aren't in GT4 and GT5P, but the way the reply is translated is sounds like "GT5P" only. I'd say something has been missed in the translation because there's no way the car list is going to have so few cars.
"A true sim racer of unparalleled quality only on Playstation 3" ----------------------------- ----------- -Hey eeehhh... Can you please tell me which Professional Racing Sim have you been playing or using all this years or at least you know about to compare GT5 with it? because if i read it correctly you posted "A True Sim Racer"
He had a good relentless (respectful) barrage of proding for GT5 info and he got an awesome interview that gives us the gamers an insight we hadn't seen before. Typical NA&EU conglomerate gaming sites, take note. This is what journalism looks like.
