Track confirmation and file size for this week's GT 5 Academy time trial demo.
2010 GOTY CONFIRMED.
Damn that was Quick.
Nice comparison GT5 a Driving game vs Halo:Reach a FPS game hmmmm i got a question who is the hero in GT5?
You cant say EVERY PS3 game is GOTY. Choose one, damn it And btw... racing games dont get GOTY. Doesnt happen
A little lite on content, but still better then waiting till next year.
Couldn't say any better, Day One Purchase for me, I'm getting sick of waiting XD
Its obviously a "lite" demo, we will probably see a more full demo nearer launch.
As someone who bought GT5p and loved it, (and already pre-ordered GT5) I was hoping they would do a huge update for those fans..(people who bought GT5p) the people who supported the game big time by buying Prologue.. I would have loved if they just gave us the nurburing track -and maybe two others, with a few more cars like the Corvette ZRI and Ferrari 458 and Lamborghini LP560-4 This would have kept me more then happy as I wait for GT5 the full game.. But this demo is seriously Lite and kind of silly as it won't really reach the right market.. (new fans who might want to pick up GT5p and then GT5 the full game in March) -this is just once again a huge miss opportunity to really get the fans excited for the full game. I don't know who is running these things at Sony or Poly Digital but for the love of god, fire that idiot. Because this is an Epic Fail on getting people excited about the game. it's just too lite and weak. it's almost 2010 you got to step your game up - these days fans need a lot more to get them excited. Some may disagree but as a super fan, I just wanted to say I was really disappointed at this - this is not how this should have been done... IMO. because the game is such high quality that to do a weak demo like this does the game a serious injustice. I want people to understand why this game is so epic and why it's so amazing, your not going to get that from this demo. If anything it might make you feel the game will be boring. It didn't have to be for just people who bought GT5p but it did have to be much bigger then this.. This just seems really weak for a demo.
Crazyglues: do you know what GT Academy is, right?
it's not GT5 demo it's GT Academy Time Trial. Demo of GT5 will be out later (probably next year) Time Trial also weights ~230MB so it's compressed to faster downloads. Also you can't even scrath car in this time trial because demage is off..
Yes I do know what GT Academy is, but I don't think new people get it.. to them they just see demo.. so in that sense I wish they would have just done a serious full demo instead and put this in it, so for people not into the Academy thing they could just skip it. @ Perkel I don't think there will be a demo out later next year, I think they will just do this.. -but lets hope I'm wrong..-but I don't think they will because the full game comes out end of March -that's really a short time.
It is out on March in Japan only. The US will get in summer and the EU is still unannounced.
wtf o_O 220MB.. smalled Next-gen demo ever. Doesn't mean it's not badass! I wanna try those photorealistic graphics myself o_O Even though I hate racers.. I was about to buy GT5p for it's photo-realistic gfx, but seems like this demo will quench my crave
wow only 220? lol looks like i'll give burnout a rest.
That'll take me a whole 10 minutes to download! What bullcrap! But seriously this looks like a lot of fun!
Wait to try this.
Would be interesting to see how much they have changed the physics engine. They need to take care of a few things by the time GT5 comes out - car AI: not just a bunch of cars running in a line - Damage: if only to shut up the 3rd best arcade-sim franchise - Online: Needs to be the best, just to keep up with the rest of the game Graphics, car physics, content - have no concerns on those fronts.
Third? There's Forza and Gran Turismo. What's the third racing sim franchise you are thinking of?
I am not talking about THE racing sim (GT5). I am talking about damage in arcade-sims: Grid, NFS Shift and the #3 in its category, Forza
People talk about how good Forza 3's damage model is, but it's all the same damage points on every car. There's nothing "dynamic" about it.
Motorstorm? :P :D
I have to agree Forza's Damage model is crap. You hit a car in one corner in the rear and miraculously the entire rear just get's damamge. It's looks tacked on and cheap. I also ran the car at around 100 mph into a wall and all I got was scratches on the hood and I drove away. BS.
I was playing GTA4 a month ago and noticed.... the cars in that game have actual damage deformation. Not just hit the corner of the car and bam! a separate texture/model piece takes its place, but the actual model itself deforms. This being GTA4!
Both have amazing looking damage
NO SHUT IT! both won't be great and You know it, GT5 will be 100x's more popular than Halo: Rehash...Oh! ummm I mean Reeks NO! Reach. HALO: Reach looks like complete GARBAGE and it'll play like it too.
GT more popular than Reach? Buddy your wrong! Halo is going to be the biggest game on sales, hype, and multiplayer next year! Dont get me wrong, GT series is a great one, but no ps3 exclusive is going to knock out Halo Reach next year. GT5= most boring game of 2010 confirmed
... you compare two different games from two different genres to each other. But that's right, you're not using logic, you're abiding by your undying loyalty to a Brand which couldn't care less about you or your dimwitted, half-assed statements. Yep, this guy is playing b3yond. Playing b3yond reason that is. Moron.
racepro? and the pc series?
is the phsyx damage system gonna be enabled in this demo???
220MB??? I didn't think it was possible... Still be sweet to see how it's looking at this stage.
Flopza 2.5 vs GT5: p http://i31.tinypic.com/29oj... Can you guess which one is Forza in this F3 vs Real life comparison: http://img43.imageshack.us/... Just look at the headlights in GT5p http://img44.imageshack.us/... http://img185.imageshack.us... So much for the 1 million Polygons in Flopza 3 LOL. EDIT: bujasem_89 no this game won't be coming with GT5p's physics because according to Yamauchi GT5 will feel very different and is using completely new physics which means it'll feel nothing like GT5p, damage hasn't been confirmed but if it is in the demo then I'm gonna smash the car over 1000x's lol.
but this is pointless? don't you have exclusive arcade racers?
You should get one! Then you could become a real race car driver http://www.gtplanet.net/luc... The Real driving simulator
I get to play this demo and ModNation Racer Beta the next day.
how do u get that beta?
aww man i want to play this game so bad i feel like i'm going to explode!! xD
this and modnation on 18th december christmas came early this year.
this lame site always talks sh1t about the ps3. :(
Dying to play the demo! Anyone else going to try to place top 20 in your country for the GT Academy thing? I know it's unlikely for me but definitely giving it a shot!
I'll try this out, and then hop into the MNR beta on the 18th ^^ cant wait.
because the game is such high quality? Did you play GT5 already? or just because is a GT Polyphony game you are just sure about it? Typical of a GT fan.
That's not fair, I wasn't saying High Quality in comparing it to anything I was just saying high Quality in the sense of doing some of the things they talked about trying to do from the HD demo.. I have GT5p, of course I have not played GT5 (full game) but I am judging that the game will be on the level of GT5p which looks absolutely amazing..especially on an HDTV Also High Quality in the sense of what they where able to do as far as the updates from Spec 1 up to Spec III which improved everything from handling to steering feel - this is by no means a low budget racing game. They have put some serious work into this game, that's all I meant by high Quality - it has a real high Quality feel like the company has really taken their time to try and make something really good. I'm not being a GT fan by saying this, that's clear if you just play the game...IMO (if your being honest) Don't assume My comments are in comparison to some other game, I am just talking about what they where trying to do compared to what they did with GT4. (stepping up to HD without losing what they had in GT4, but yet improve on it - no easy task, getting your game to play at 60fps in HD and not lose any of the feel of the older game)
yaaak Crap gameplay Forza 3 looks much much better in gameplay FM3 >> GT5 poor
whats GT academy? someone care to elaborate
Does anyone know if this demo will support steering wheels? I have the Logitech G25 which works with Prologue so i am interested to try the new physics with a racing wheel.
A demo of a demo of a demo of demo.
Don't faint at the final product. -End statement
Yeah, so many demos of this game, it is almost like they're just trying to buy time to get the actual game working.
FORZA cant even compared to prologue . of course you didnt know that cause you don't have a ps3
Yes have seen the video footage and honestly am disappointed.. ..but hey it's better than no demo at all. Wouldn't it have been better if they gave us the Subaru damage-mode trial version they demoed a few months back?, even though it's still a work-in-progress I'm sure a lot of gamers' would have been thrilled to at least try-out this game than the one their handing us in a few days time.
