Yamauchi reveals that cars Gran Turismo 5 will be "easier to drive". Uh, what's that mean?
never know until the game is released. I hope they fully support the G25 racing wheel.
ive always sucked at GT games.. but i wanna get GT5 tough im not a car aficionado, it looks stunning and it has awesome features.. i just dont wanna blow $100+ on the game and wheel and then have it collecting dust like when i bought GHIII -_- GH wasnt hard, just boring for me after a couple of days
I would assume there is a mode or something that makes it easy.
I hope it is slightly easier, but not really in terms of driving, just in terms of the goals you need to make. In GT5P it is extremely hard to get gold on most of the tracks because you have to do everything perfectly, and make sure you slipstream every car in the right way. I just hope they make it easier to get gold :(
For a new comer, the GT universe might be intimidating, especially for one who doesn't know a thing about cars or has just come out of playing Burnout... I have always felt that for such a realistic sim, there must be a different Arcade kind mode where the game eases a bit and you won't end up last if you crash once.. There can always be a true professional mode for the hardcores, but there should also be an easier mode for new noobs... Judging that the franchise has sold more than 50 million, guess people love the harder more realistic sim...
What do you mean by fully support? GTP doesn't list the G25 under wheel options but I found on of the logitech setups that I mapped to my liking and the wheel works flawless with it. I would think PD would not only include the G25 but the G27 as well on the final version of GT5. I know this probably is wishful thinking but I hope they include the Fanatec wheel (Porsche 911 & 911 S) options as well.
i'd imagine they would make it scalable, like what turn 10 did with forza 3, you have the option to play with assists, but you have the option not to. good for everybody that way. Personally i prefer a hard game, but then i have the patience to master it, alot of people dont play games if they arent good at them straight away
I think Narutone66 wants full clutch/5gear shifter ability in GT. I agree it would be nice.
it's just to help people new to the game (that was his theme throughout the interview) learn to drive properly. However, I hope it goes further than that and makes the sim mode a more accurate representation of real life. Despite what those so-called "sim" fans tell you difficult does not mean realistic. Driving a real Corvette or WRX at pace through narrow street tracks is a heck of a lot easier than in any so-called "sim" I've driven on consoles or PC. In fact, I wonder if anyone who reviews sims has ever driven a real car in race or rally conditions! The difference between sims and real driving is that in sims, it's harder to keep the car under control but easier to recover and rejoin the race while in real-life it's much easier to keep the car under control but very very difficult to recover, especially if you've overwhelmed the dampers and the chassis's oscillating off the springs. Once that happens your grip goes to hell which means, slides, spins, and, possibly, lots of very expensive repairs. BTW, that's another aspect of racing (cost of repairs, driver injuries) that no so-called racing "sim" that I've driven properly emulates.
Be aware of the Japanese, they are a clever nation with much technological power.
"New physics in the TGS demo should be immediately apparent to anyone playing the game -- it’s actually “easier to drive”, though when the car begins to lose grip, its behavior is more true-to-life." Nice to see titles like this. It really is.
Dismiss me if you want, just wait till 2012, you wont be so smug then.
My friend has the G25 for Prologue, so I know it works. I'm not 100% about every feature, but it at least functions (I'm pretty sure that includes the clutch too). They HAVE to include that steering wheel. It's the top of the line model with the most realism.
please don't make it arcadey. this is the first GT i'm ever going to buy and i want an authentic racer this time around. i've played millions of arcade racers; now i want something based on reality. please don't conform to the casuals, there are plenty of easy driving games out there.
I really wish some of you could have seen Kojima's presentation at GDC this year. His whole premise was that it was actually the _West_ that has the technological talent and pushes the boundaries in that respect while Kojima productions, representative of the East, focuses on design to overcome the historical technical limitations of technology. The final conclusion was that he wanted to finally merge the technological innovation of the West with the design sensibility of the East for his next project.
Mario Kart Still Better
Is that guy above me saying sumthing? i cant really tell
yeah i took a glance at his comment when i was detracting the none existing bubble he has left.. typical turn 10 talk, he said something about mario kart being on par with flopza 3 or summin like that
Better than wat???? Forza... Ya I know... See 2 can troll. The only difference is that people can see my comment and not yours... LMAO
mario kart wii sold 17m (3x more than the entire forza series) so he's obviously trying to say gt5 will be a beast. cause every xtard knows sales>gameplay.
This guy is just a fanboy posting rubbish, but I've seen people post the same thing in a Forza article. I'm not sure what you people are really expecting.
They better f*ckin not EDIT: after watchin the vid its safe to say, i was worried for nutting. I have faith in Kaz
Who says a sims need to be to hard to drive just like shift has done it was retarded hard i heard.
"Who says a sims need to be to hard to drive just like shift has done it was retarded hard i heard" A sim needs to be close to what it is in real life and believe me its not easy. "just like shift has done" Yes is retarded because is worst than Gran Turismo retarded is faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar away from reality. NFS Shift cant be called a sim.
I think the word "EASY" is a misrepresentation of how it was intended.
Its not so much hard (thats wat she said), whats headwork is I think the devs based the driving AI on those asshats you get to play online against from time to time. You know the ones, tags like roadblocker or head on. Nothing is as frustrating as nearing the end of a 5 lap race in first only for the AI to just ram you/spin you out off the track. Glad I platted it, its being traded come friday for a certain game that everyone is praising, yep you guessed it: Brutal Legend.
GT5 is a FLOP even before it comes out. Keep waiting while i will soon be enjoying forza 3.
.... Really? Enjoying? Well, I guess if there's nothing else to play on the 360...
Reasons for it being a flop already??
PP's down to 3 bubbles.
You really do like fooling yourself.....idiot!
well i be enjoying the goty atm suck it bot
leave the guy alone, not his fault he's a mentally fcked up.
Easy isn't clearly defined here.
They had to Tone down the Game for the DROIDS! how can you guys spin it this time
No need to spin it, just watch the vid and you'll see that the word "EASY" was taken out of context. Man , that vid makes me want to cream.
PD probably toned it down for when you xtards jump ship. since you xtards would have been used to playing forza, and been used auto brakes, auto steering, rewind time making it impossible to crash, they thought the jump might have been a bit too tough for you idiots.
Maybe he's talking about comfort, like easy more comfortable to drive the car but not easy to win the race
so the psp version is easier for new players,thats what he said.
the psp version is really easy, in the way u earn money. Just go to test track,S rank, 2 Laps, and win the race and u have $150,000 just like that. With a fast car you can finish in little over 4 minutes. The more laps u add the more money u get, and it goes all the way up to 99 laps. I think you get a fortune if you do 99 laps on Nurburgring. But im pretty sure that would take a day or two lol. Alot of people cant drive properly on the game, so they get mad at it. My best tip to anyone having difficulty, dont think about playing a game, just pretend you are driving a car. If you think you are just playing another racing game, you will end up in the grass on the sharp turns everytime. I told everyone that, that has ever played it with me. They improved alot. Knowing when to brake is your friend!
Maybe they mean it will be more accessible? In the past not everyone could jump into a game like GT without smashing into a wall a few times, and I'd bet that's as far as some people got before going "to hell with this!" Anything that attracts new players that wouldn't normally be interested is a good thing, just so long as they don't loose the feeling the fans of the series have come to expect, which I'm sure they won't. A bit like Forza has assists to smooth out the learning curve for your average person.
I hope it is more like actual driving. I love GT and when I put someone who has never played GT or games really behind the steering wheel they always have a hard time even though they have been driving for years. If easy is making the game so actual drivers can sit right down and be reasonably good then I am for it.
Lack of G-forces being applied to the driver's body as well as feedback from throttle, wheel, clutch and brakes has never been properly emulated. That's not so much the games problem as it is the peripheral's problem.
maybe in the same way that forza 3 will be easier, with assists.
GT 1(PS1) 100%!!! ;-P POOR JEALOUS ChatBots on this Page!!! ;-D You will never Play Gran Turismo??? That is just SAD!!! IT'S CAR P0RN!!! ;-P + I bet you the xBox 360 can't do this - http://www.youtube.com/watc... ;-P WOW!!! ;-P ;-P ;-P
Lol butthurt PS3tards in here
you feel butthurt every night when daddy puts you to bed
"Ulloa" has no bed, what the hell are you talking about, he most likely lives in a farm.
Sorry Isaac why don't you try to be more direct and specify exactly what you're trying to tell me? Are you calling me poor?
that the game has settings which make it more accessible to a wider audience. As an aside, notice how PD NEVER talks about or badmouths Forza... As a matter of fact, I don't think that any of the PS3 developers ever make comments bashing the 360, including the most outspoken of the bunch, Dave Jaffe. Much classier group, IMHO.
Gran Turismo have never been realistic and have never been a true sim. The game is a casual Racing Game with just a few simulation elements. Im pretty sure Yamauchi’s words were simply lost in translation.
Wow..thanks for the laugh. If you think GT is casual, then you've barely played the game at all. Please explain to me how GT is more casual or less realistic than any other racing game. And don't give me that 'no crashes' BS. GT4 came out a long time ago. The only game that even had decent realistic crashes in the PS2 era was TOCA (which I think was only available in Europe). It takes more than crashes to make a racer realistic.
Professional mode ftw, bb.
