Did The PS3 Really Restrict Gran Turismo 5?

Kotaku: "It’s seemingly a practiced technique amongst some Western game journalists. Interview a well known developer, often through a translator, ask a couple of leading questions, then reap the benefits of a language and culture barrier in the form of a headline grabbing story along the lines of ‘The PS3 Isn’t Powerful Enough For Game X’, or ‘Game X Was Scaled Down For The PS3′.

When I saw the headline “Gran Turismo 5: PS3 ‘not enough’ to handle Yamauchi’s vision” I knew what to expect. A quote, taken out of context, ripped straight from another magazine’s interview subsequently used to substantiate a claim tailor-made for hit grabbing."

Kotaku should know, they've perfected the craft of Sony bashing.

Hey, those who've done it can speak best about if from experience, eh?

Well regardless of the source, the article speaks the truth. Gaming journalism is nothing more than a bunch of tabloids concerned with nothing but sensationalism and hits.

Nothing can make someone love Kotaku, unless it's the people they cater to.

"PS3 fans loved Kotaku last week when they bashed a Kinect game."

The only thing good about Kotatu is there reviews NO Numbers, No Stars, No Nothing just there opinion everything else about them is a joke they hate everything Sony and have even stooped low enough to fake videos of GT5 among other things just to gain hits to there site. Its sites like Kotaku, HHG, Destrutoid and the list can go on that make some of the VERY FEW good gaming journalist look like idiots.

DragonKnight2897d ago

Nah, Kotaku is still hated. It's just Kinect is hated more.

With what GT5 has and what it does, this wont come up again until Forza 5. And that's if that game comes anywhere close to offering what GT5 does.

kaveti66162897d ago

Regardless of how great GT5 looks, and it looks amazing, next generation games are going to make current gen games look like complete shit.

I remember my friend telling me how great God of War 2 looked. It looks like complete shit next to the shittiest looking PS3 games today. What does that tell you?

Visuals? They don't mean anything. There's always going to be a better-looking game. Motion controls aren't killing gaming. An obsessive focus on graphics is killing gaming.

Forza 3? A fucking fantastic game. A couple of youtube videos showing glitches don't mean anything.

Guys, I know it's Kotaku but the article speaks true. Read it for once.

Zeevious2897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )

It's an intentional cultural misunderstanding...

Some "journalist" are doing exactly what Kotaku claim's and taking advantage of it for headlines.

I commented on this a week ago in fact:
http://n4g.com/comments/red...

As I understand this, it's expected to make similar statements as an expression of humility and traditional culture.

Similar misunderstood comments where made about Metal Gear Solid 4 as a modest effort when it was released.

In fact...in translation of these cultural differences it is actually a compliment of the power of the hardware and Mr. Yamauchi humble vision of GT5 making use of it.

It is a poor, pathetic "journalist" that would exploit these cultural differences, and through that...any great developer!

Please...comment where it's deserved...Tell the writer TIM INGHAM exactly what you think of this kind of "journalism"

Don't forget the lesser of two evils, JOE ANDERSON:

(is he so embarassed his email & pagelink don't even work anymore?)

These are two journalist and two sites that no longer have my trust or are considered credible.

TRUST KOTAKU?
While I would like to think Kotaku gains some respect for pointing this out, I wonder if it's just the opportunity to tarnish two rival sites, than truly enlighten any gamers.

I question their motives -- Considering they themselves posted more than once stories about the exact same thing with Metal Gear Solid 4, taking advantage of the exact same cultural differences!

So if they're pointing fingers at how wrong it is now...why did they themselves do it before?
http://kotaku.com/381412/ko...
http://kotaku.com/362807/ko...

If there was Kotaku stock, I'd now mark it as Market Perform instead of Sell...Which still doesn't offer them much credibility.

As far as I see it, We're looking at three bottom-of-the-barrel "game journalist" sites bickering over their own scraps of trash.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2897d ago (Edited 2897d ago )

If the PS3 really restricted the vision of PD and GT5. Then why GT6 is announced?

By the way, the site is Kotaku Australia.

stonecold32897d ago

hiredhelp2897d ago

acere2897d ago

yea but still didt make me buy a xbox

Mista T2897d ago

he should've also let it be a pc game. would be AWESOME

Thecraft19892897d ago

No it would not It would be harder to focus on two platforms and would not push ps3 to its full potential. Yes theirs no doubt a pc version of gt5 would look 10x better but it would hindered the ps3 development to much.
