PD surprise me with Porsche

Bodyboarder_VGamer3602d ago

RUF are tuned Porsches and they are in the game.

umair_s513602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

EDIT: Do RUF have the Porsche logo?

thereapersson3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

Also, it doesn't matter, because RUF cars outperform the base models they are built upon.

Microsoft Xbox 3603602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

The Porsche exclusive license ends in March. There is a high chance that it might make it on disc and not in DLC form.

aaron58293602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

Brake discs DO glow ... and it's clearly seen even in daytime.... IN RACE CARS and F1 cars ... idiots...

If an everyday road car... ok... even high performance road cars.. the brakes would fail before reaching the high temperature needed to make a brake disc glow..

Some people... just like to find whatever reason to argue just to justify their prefered console/game.

Edit : oops.. i meant to reply to the so called "know everything about car" guy ...

sikbeta3602d ago

Porsche DLC will be Amazing, but is not like I going to die knowing therer are +1000 cars on the Game

bigboss9113602d ago

you wanna know why Porsche is not in the game???? cuz that would be cheating, they go to fast ;)......dont believe me?
look at those laptimes Porsche 956 has the record at Nurburgring, and has had it for nearly 27 years. and note that 5 porsches are ahead of the veyron in lap times hahahaha.

lightningsax3601d ago

Porsche fever? Really? I'm going to go with Top Gear's latest episode on this one - "It's only a Beetle." It's awesome that there are this many cars in the first place; I don't mind if Porsche doesn't make it.

In the meantime, I'm just enjoying how awesome the Nurburgring is looking. The backgrounds look much better than what we were seeing in the Time Trial Challenge thing. The trees seem to look like trees this time, not like Lego trees.

randomwiz3601d ago

Every news article about GT5 is surprising me everyday.

I wonder how RUF interiors are going to look like

Ps_alm3k3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

it's already confirmed!!

edit: Okay , maybe not...But!! The chances are high, because all the major manufacturer are in it.
It would be stupid if they don't want free publicity/commercial for it.

sinncross3602d ago

What you mean already confirmed?

For some time now we were under the belief that Porsche would not be in the game but rather just RUF.

Hanif-8763602d ago

Gran Turismo 5 has over a 1000+ cars but all i wanna drive is the Bugatti Veyron :)

Strikepackage Bravo3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

its not as great as I thought it would be, mind numbingly fast, but it handles like a very heavy car, sounds great but not orgasmic, you get the same driving experience from some of the race cars in the game except they are much more nimble.

I should say this however, when doing laps, what it (Veyron) lacks in precision handling, it makes up for with raw power and speed, so you still get pretty good times around all the tracks.

Foliage3602d ago

I think Deadly meant that he wanted to drive the Veyron with realistic physics. Racing with the Veyron in the arcade racing inspired Forza isn't an accurate representation. Not even close.

RedDragan3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

The Veyron handling is anything but heavy. Turn 10 have got that severely wrong. It's a Top 5 car on the Top Gear race track, you don't get into the top 5 times no matter how fast you are if the car feels heavy because the Top Gear test track is all about cornering.

Clarkson, Hammond and May all say the handling on the machine is perfect.

Nerfetis, the GT90 is not that good. The GT40 beat it because the handling on the GT90 is the pretty bad.

HoofHearted3602d ago

They thought it was going to take the top spot and it didn't.

The reason was because it IS heavy and it is NOT the best handling around the corners. The main reason it made up for its less than stellar handling is by it's TREMENDOUS pick up of speed in the follow through. It took the follow through like no car ever had and shaved a good 1 and a half seconds off it's finishing time.

The acceleration in the Veyron is THAT good.

nefertis3602d ago

@RedDragan its u who cant drive it works like a dream to me and the gt40 is ugly gt90 is sexy

Oztheboss3601d ago

tell me, have you driven that car?

didn't think so. gtfo

KnightOfAlbion3601d ago

I would like to try to handle this "little" beast!


Yes! A Mercedes McLaren SLR Roadster indeed!

Narutone663601d ago

know if the SSC Aero Ultimate will be included in GT5?

nefertis3600d ago

@Oztheboss and to the other haters damn get off my nut sacks.

Mclaren Im finally going to be able to drive the simulation of the f1

Strikepackage Bravo3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

signed an exclusivity deal with Forza 3, no Porsche in GT5, only Ruf; and in this video GT5 looks no better than F3 graphically, I told you people they would look the same, why don't people listen around here.

The cars appear to be going 50mph all the time, and the engine sounds are not true to life like in Forza. Where is the red glow from the heated brakes?

I was hyped for this game but the more I see it the more Im convinced its just another example of how the Japanese are stuck in the past with game development.

@ Lazarus, OK you just said the oposite of everything I said except yours is all opinion since GT5 is not out yet, and Im assuming you have not played F3. As for Porsche, I know they were not in past GTs, but I also know they signed a deal with Turn10 this time around, my proof? Porsche's are in F3 and not in GT5, and also because I heard it in an interview with T10 on a podcast.

thereapersson3602d ago

That glow is realistic... if you think having a neon disc behind a wheel that turns on at the slightest hint of brake pressure is realistic, that is.

Lazarus693602d ago


Porsche cars have never been in any GT they RUF instead which are tuned versions.Also the engines sound are pretty true to life and FORZA engine sounds are not better.AS for visuals GT5 does look better than FORZA3,but that doesn't mean FORZA3 is bad looking.

DJ3602d ago

"Japanese stuck in the past". Doesn't get more racist than that. And GT5 makes Forza 3 look like a joke, especially in motion.

Strikepackage Bravo3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

expect them to implement it the way its done in F3, the disks only glow after the brakes heat up under prolonged heavy braking. In Forza you can actually monitor the brake temp in the telemetry and see what temp at which the brakes get that warm.

RACIST?!?!?! How is it racist to notice and comment on a trend in Japanese game development? wtf? Would it be racist if I said Japanese developers often use very different humor in their games than westrn developers?

Maybe you think what I said was racist because it was negative, so we cant say anything negative about the Japanese no matter how true or circumstantial it is? Americans like big V-8s with poor gas mileage, is that racist???

@soda, The engine sounds in F3 are recorded from the actual vehicles at 500 RPM intervals, so if it sounds like crap, its cuz the actual vehicle sounds like crap.

DelbertGrady3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

Forza 3's engine sounds not so good?

Don't know how PD sample their engine sounds but Turn 10 do it uniquelly for each and every car in the game and the result is hard not to notice.

Watch this, I dare you.

Love the 991hp Miata lol!

myothercar3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

It's all down to brakes, is it? Hmm... the only time I've ever even seen brake discs glowing is at night.

Besides, Forza 3 looks like a cartoon compared to GT5. The cars' colors are all oversaturated, and the field of view on all gameplay cameras is too arcadey. The interiors are too dark from the external view, and in c*ckpit view the dash looks relatively flat compared to GT5. The environments are better populated in some cases, but other than that, Forza hasn't got much worth noting on GT5's graphics, Mister.

Not to mention GT5's replay cameras suh-MOKE Forza's ugly rotating abominations.

DelbertGrady3602d ago

I'm all about the gameplay and that's where Forza shines most imo. Love the customization options as well. GT5 does look better though. To each his own :)

Here are some pics of glowing disc brakes(daytime). Might sway your opinion on that subject a little.

bnaked3602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

Yo, MOST important for a racing sim are the glowing disc brakes.. When you are driving the car, you can press a button and the camera will pan to the glowing brakes and you can say hallelujah. Woah Forza 3 is the real racing simulator ^^.

I think we will see glowing disc brakes in GT5 as well, at least in night races..

And about costumization in GT5: You will be able to exchange/upgrade every f*cking little piece of the car.. Yamauchi said it in an interview.
Now that is costumization. The forza editor for painting the cars is nonsense imo, because, you know, i want a silver Mercedes, i want a red ferrari, but i don't want a car with flames or master chief on it ^^. It's a nice arcade feature at best, but real car enthusiasts want original colours..

popup3602d ago

GT5 is quite happily the more photorealistic of the two games. It's all in the palette, the lighting and the models.

Forza has a higher density of background detail but spoils it with a 'computer game' looking palette again.

I love Forza (which really only exists because of Gran Turismo). The passion that Turn10 have toward cars is clearly evident in the product but I still cannot quench my thirst for GT5 with it.

Also, the speed is perfectly simulated. It is not a hard calculation to do! Have you ever been on a track? They are massive! It is people like this that made Polyphony change the product for the American market before by making the game run unrealistically faster to 'make it seem realistic' to people who watch too many movies and 'Tyre cams' on speedway racing.

Ravage273602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

you have to be a pretty delusional fanboy to even suggest that forza is anywhere NEAR GT5 when it comes to graphics. It's not even debatable. Just look at the 2nd video from the list

rezenu3602d ago

"I was hyped for this game but the more I see it the more Im convinced its just another example of how the Japanese are stuck in the past with game development."

That's racist.

lh_swe3602d ago

In terms of graphics and handling GT5 P was great, in my mind they surpassed Forza's but the tiny details such as tire wear, glowing brake discs and the awesome sound of driving a Zonda through a tunnel, all of those things make Forza something special, I mean adding fuel to the mix is just genius, playing a 30 lap race and it still being engaging because your adrenaline is pumping because you have to brake as little as possible to save fuel is something I haven't felt in a racing sim before.

Microsoft Xbox 3603602d ago (Edited 3602d ago )

First let me just say this.... Stop lying to yourself, you were never hyped for this game at all. You just mentioned that BS line to give your comment some credibility. Yeah like that really works. Just admit it, you're a 360 fanboy.

Secondly.... Porsche never signed an exclusive deal with Forza 3. Turn 10 bought rights to put it in their game. Porsche themselves even stated that.

Third.... you are just plain delusional to think GT5 looks the same as Forza 3. Anybody with a functional brain can point out that GT5 is leaps and bound beyond Forza 3 in terms of visual quality and in pure technical form.

GVON3602d ago

"Secondly.... Porsche never signed an exclusive deal with Forza 3. Turn 10 bought rights to put it in their game. Porsche themselves even stated that."

True,someone on Gtplant mailed porsche.The reply said all video game licensing is handled by EA,they own the licence and if you want porsche you ask and pay EA.

Found the post

"On the other hand, there are a few sublicenses handed out by Electronic Arts. This happens to be the case for the Forza Motorsport game series. Due to our close cooperation with Electronic Arts, we accept their entrepreneurial decisions to give out sublicenses. Electronic Arts operates in the area of entertainment software, we operate in the area of producing cars. In terms of a good partnership, we only deem it best to let every one of our partners operate freely in their respective branch. Even if that means that there will be decisions which we would have met differently."

DelbertGrady3602d ago

I never said glowing disc brakes are important so stop putting words in my mouth. I just showed that they can be visible in daylight as well.

It's funny that when something isn't available in GT5 it's all of a sudden labeled as "arcadey". I hope GT5 turns out to be great. More fun for everyone and more competition between developers. I know what you are going to say (Turn 10 aren't even considered competition to Polyphony Digital), so save it. =)

GVON3602d ago

I think 5 will have glow,it's been in since 3.
It is dependant on materials used though,some brake types never glow,others do.I do think it's exaggerated in forza though,it's put in as a cool looking effect rather than a realistic interpretation of heat vs brake material.

doG_beLIEfs3602d ago

"(Turn 10 aren't even considered competition to Polyphony Digital)"


We have a winner!!!

That is why PD and God don't even mention that 360 racing game. It is as far removed from the perfection of the GT series as truth is to Fixed Views.

Sorry for the political reference but I felt it was the best way to get across the gigantic galactic sized gap between the 2 developers and their games.

As for truth and Fox News...FYI in 2007 they went to court for the right to LIE to their viewers...guess what? They WON that right. And that is why I mock Faux News...they fought to LIE to you legally, so how is that News again and NOT propaganda?
