Sony decided to remove Siena's flags from Gran Turismo 5, Siena's authorities say they're satisfied by Sony's decision (article is in Italian)
. No delays then.
Sony is keeping their promise. No more delays for Gran Turismo 5.
Lazy Translation Link: http://tiny.cc/uuawy Good to see Sony respond to their desire to protect their historical and cultural heritage.
I think that the flags appearance in GT5 would have protected and preserved there historical and cultural heritage even more. Siena could have flown said flag in ten million plus homes around the world starting this November. Siena, stop being so sensitive. You fly the flag at the race in real life so what not a simulation of the same event?
It was about their history and culture used to help sell a specific product. They didn't want that type of connection. When movies are filmed there, they have the same stipulation.
I didnt know that... kinda weird but i guess it's how they are.
No Flags, no problems, November 2nd is The Day... Gran Turismo 5: The Definitive Driving Simulator
Not buying the game for flags.
I think these are good news, a legal dispute could have caused a delay, now everything should be ok (hopefully)
KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON
I don't like ANY FORM OF CENSORSHIP!!!
Never thought they were so important in a GAME. :/ I mean, important enough to create problems.
are u kidding? no siena flag.. im not buying GT5 /s
lol @ the people who fought this would delay it lol!
so what is a 'Siena'? lol jk
I had to Wiki Siena. lol
lol @ the people who cant tell the difference between thought and fought.
lol @ grammar nazi, aren't you supposed to be counting your numbers?
It's my day off. Ah ah ah
Since we are playing the grammar Nazi game, it's "can't," not "cant." XD Btw, what was the last number you stopped on? Considering it's been 435 days since you joined n4g, where's the end?
The Count can't ever stop counting. I visit N4G in my spare time when I'm not filming. I'm planning on counting the polygons on every car in GT5. Ah Ah Ah.
thank god for that :) cant wait to ride this bby
All this for a flag? Wow. You would think Seina would like the free advertisement, no?
I'm glad Sony and Polyphony didn't give into their demands.
With things like this we all are losing something.
they don't care about ads ..since their flag is ciopyrighted they want to control EVERY media that use it .. so nobody can use it without their consent ... if it's not in the game they probably asked for too much (money) at PD ...
It was a dumb move by Siena. I love Siena, and I think it would have been good for them if more people could see how much beautiful this city is, also if through a videogame. Videogames are a very powerful media, they could bring culture in your home. Il Palio Di Siena is awesome. Narrow minded people: shame on you.
Can anyone find a good way to troll this article because I have no idea how someone would troll. I guess we have to weight for tolls to come in.
No flags, no buy.
3D flags out, 2D trees stays. The two months they spent making those flags just gone to waste now. What's next! No cars? And you can just mention Forza, it works with every GT5 article. A true troll will "always" find a way.
LOL +bubs both of you and i got disagrees WTF
Seriously who thought they would delay the game over something insignificant as flags.
Not ideal for a simulator, but I suppose the lack of flags should not detract too much from the whole experience, not anymore than the lack of Porsches anyway.
here's your answer.
i dont care about porches not when i have 950+ cars to choose from
OH NOES!!! TEH FLAGS!!! I'm glad they didn't have to delay it over something so pointless, just throw in some GT5 and Polyphony Digital flags instead and there problem fixed.
what is KB country?
But are there flags BP ones since how in one gt5 trailer it had the Bp flags that oil company.
Are you satisfied whiny Siena? Now let the glorious coming of GT5 continue unabated.
They just shot themselves in the foot! all for their "media attention whorish" ways. Now no one will remember that place. All the developers intentions were geared toward recreating the the city as is! there intentions were good. You Fools!
Damn, Sony fails again. I'll guess I'll just stick with the definitite FORZA III. sarcasm
... Now let's all kick back and see what ELSE happens to try and undermine GT5's imminent launch.
fallback Siena, PD bring the epicness Nov 2, 201.
