WOW thats a beast can't wait to drive it.

Longrod_Von_Hugendon3142d ago (Edited 3142d ago )

Fucking in game ad. booo!

I'm totally serious man. I don't want to look at some ad while I'm gaming that's why I paid my $60. If you're going to do product placement then lower the cost of the game.

killzowner3142d ago (Edited 3142d ago )

u serious? That's a good thing that F1 cars, tracks nascar etc. are so close to real life with their real world counterpart advertisements on them.

PirateThom3142d ago

Yeah, I suppose they should drop every other manufacturer and use fake cars as well since, you know, it's all advertising.

CernaML3142d ago

....What the flying fuck are you talking about? You're seriously not thinking that they're advertising the Red Bull energy drink are you?

Red_Orange_Juice3142d ago (Edited 3142d ago )

What's the difference between official car and a prototype?, it's both product placement, this whole game is product placement, even race tracks are owned by private companies and are considered "a product" cos they make money for their owners.

All that matters is it looks freakin sweet and plays like crazy

Panthers3142d ago

I agree! I dont want to see any real cars in the game since its advertising the cars and making me want to buy them. If I see one Viper, Corvette, or Ferrari in the game, Im returning it... /s

Heartnet3142d ago

Mate i hope your joking xD have you never watched the grand prix haha :P

Pacman3213142d ago

Biggest retard comment of the century.

FishCake9T43141d ago

You have heard of Red Bull Racing right?
Yeah Sebastian Loeb ,Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber are all just sales men trying to get us to buy energy drinks......
Its a conspiracy !!!!

visualb3141d ago

the game has an ad for Redbull, because...well, REDBULL ARE ADVERTISING GT5


as in, its a mutual agreement.

it only benefits both companies...its not about getting cash from Redbull or anything =|

cant wait to spin out in this thing a thousand times. LOL. Really though..cant wait.

prunchess3142d ago

Can't wait to try this car out on Suzuka!!!!

Bathyj3142d ago

1483bhp @ 15,000RPM and only 545kg.

Vacuums on the wheels to suck in to the road. Thats insane.

And F1 cars measure time to a 1000th of a second, meanwhile this thing blows the lap record away by 20 seconds. Not a small margin.

Not to mention what a sexy b*tch it is.

badz1493142d ago (Edited 3142d ago )

no wonder Vettel made Japan F1 GP looks so easy for himself. He droved this super car in GT5 and got like 20secs over his best time. driving a much slower F1 car must have gave him the advantage in real life!

hennessey863141d ago

Suzuka Lap Time: 1:11.540 (compare with Vettel’s 2009 F1 lap time of 1:30.833) the real driving simulater has just become a joke if you ask me

why can't Turn 10 do something like this?


edit: you disagreed? ok can you provide me proof that Turn 10 followed Polyphony's example of Citroen GT and this awesome red bull x1?

zootang3142d ago

Turn 10 can't compete with Gran Turismo

hennessey863142d ago

they already did compete and win my friend. Its only gt5 that will finally take the crown back. I cant wait for gt5 but i aint a blind fanboy. Forza has been at the top for a while now but i think thers no doubt gt5 is a beast of a game but give forza some credit man its a great game. The review scores say it all

vsr3141d ago

Any other racing games don't have that reception.

rrw3142d ago

Turn 10 is impossible to catch up with PD

theonlylolking3141d ago

Its possible. They are with the biggest bribing gaming company in the world.

kaveti66163142d ago

That's like asking why PD didn't make a deep custom livery editor like the one Forza 3 has.

Both series have their own strengths and weaknesses.

MaximusPrime3142d ago

im sure every GT fan disagree.

I dont want custom livery editor in GT. its too childish and GT is not Need for Speed Underground or Midnight Club.

It will totally ruin the whole Gran Turismo series.

MaxXAttaxX3142d ago (Edited 3142d ago )

The Real Paintjob Simulator

GT keeps it at a more pro level, while Forza does more of the car-show thing.

kaveti66163141d ago

Take a logic class. What you just said was immature.

You tried to downplay the custom livery editor by calling it childish and saying that no GT fan would want it. And you got a ton of agrees. This says something about the world. Illogical idiots, that's all you guys are. If MS was to make a custom car to promote Forza, I suspect you would all bash MS for spending more money on advertising than on the game.

visualb3141d ago

seriously, want to keep loyal to GT5 and the all mighty PD? DON'T MENTION other game devs, especially disrespectful immature ones =(
