Who in the world is gonna tune their standard car?


alphakennybody3862d ago

"some standard car are not port from gt4"

saint_john_paul_ii3862d ago

most likely, those cars will get the premium patch in the future, as DLC or a free update hopefully

ALFAxD_CENTAURO3862d ago (Edited 3862d ago )

Probably there are coming Bundles of Premium Cars as DLC.

But, I'm glad GT5 have variety of different type of cars, besides, offers the most detailed Cars in a Racing game.

TehExcusesBegin3862d ago

Wait, do you know that quantity does not equal variety? Having more than 10 percent of cars be nissans is not variety.
40 Skylines is not variety
20 S2000 is not variety.
30 Lancers is not variety.
Having 1 car repeat 40 times is not variety, it is just inflation. I bet you most of those 40 cars can be achieved by tuning 2 or 3 base models
Quantity doesn't always equate variety and this game is prime example.
Also it is awesome to have THREE PREMIUM Suzuki CAPPUCINO's and yet have the only Bugatti be a STANDARD. Let's not even try and explain why you need 3 cappucino's in a racing game, let alone have them all be premiums

SMW3862d ago

If you understood the Import scene you would know why, for a Japanese developer, having 40 Skylines, 20 S2000's and 30 Lancers makes perfect sense. Millions of people around the world tune these cars and spend sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars but cant take them on a track. This is their opportunity.

And you might find that if the only difference in the Cappucino's is mechanical (ie engine size, gearbox) it didnt take much time to add 3 Premium cars to the mix (re-use the models).

Also there are probably lots of behind the scenes stuff that dictates what can be premium and what cant be. Bugatti Might not want the latest Veyron being smashed up infront of your eyes, and Nissan might have an advertising deal with PD/Sony (The GTR 07 was the cover art for GT5:P)

30 Lancers ?!!!! are Lancer Evolution I , II , III , IV , V , ... , IX , X , ... same ?!!
More than 50 of 400 Forza 3 cars are same (only with different liveries) but people only hate on GT ...

Dnied3862d ago

Couldn't have said it better SMW, finally somebody who realizes the difference lol

Dee_913862d ago (Edited 3862d ago )

Skylines range from

Lancer and S2000 are the same .they arent just 1 car with different years
capuchinos range from hard top convert ible and softtop and diff types

Lawliet3862d ago


You have no idea what you are talking about do you? "tuning?!"LOL! the car's model? I didn't know you can tune that.. Calling each model the SAME?!

Cooling system
- There are still many others

Each model comes with different combination of parts and upgrades! Atleast do some research when you try to act like you know anything man..

Baka-akaB3862d ago (Edited 3862d ago )

Looks like you are ironically living up to the name TehExcusesBegin .

basically nitpicking and finding whatever excuse would serve a negative point about the game

visualb3862d ago (Edited 3862d ago )

someone with:

a one day old account
named "tehexcusesbegin" spamming GT5 articles means:

someone, with an account here on N4G got ignored/down to 1 bubble and frustrated that he kept being beaten in every argument against GT5.
so he creates a new account, with a spiteful yet sardonic name to exemplify what people do when they are faced with an argument against GT5.

but to be honest, I see it this way:
Your name is TehExucusesBeging, and it matches your "excuses" for putting down GT5 perfectly.

stop making excuses trying to find flaws where there aren't.
GT5 isn't perfect, of course not. Hell i've said it myself i rather havr 500 premium cars than 200 premium and 800 standards, but thats not a down side, its just a matter of preference

a down side would be if there were NO premium cars, and all cars were standards
so please person with his possibly 8th account used to troll due to being bitter towards the fact that he can never win an argument by using LOGIC
give up,
or at least present logical sensible arguments, not stupid ones like the one you propose now.

everyone else: ignore him and / or debubble him, which in cause will make him create a NEW account, this time named "800PS2CARS" or "N4GT5" or "GT4.5" and so which case, you'll simply ignore and debubble that account.
as for replying to your comment...more than enough people who know what they are talking about have refuted your argument to the point of non existence,

this here comment of mine is more due to the fact that i find it hilarious someone would make an account just to trash a game. i've ignored fanboys from all sorts trashing halo, kinect, GOWIII and ME2, and now you are part of my list of ignored fanboys trashing GT5 for no reason =) (list growing daily)
/end epic rant, must drink less coffee...

The whole Premium vs Standard thing is probably affected by a number of factors including the willingness of manufacturers to pay (or cover some of the development cost) in order to have their cars be listed as standard or premium.

Future DLC would surely include turning some standard cars into premium cars when requested by manufacturers.

Mr Marbles3862d ago (Edited 3862d ago )

How do you come to that conclusion?

Other games simply put the cars that the gamers/customers want to see the most in the games, since this is a Japanese game first, it has lots of Nissans and odd choices in premium vs standard, if judged by our western tastes.

Dont blame it on manufacturers, the Veyron, Porsche, all those cars are premium in Forza, and they can be smashed and tuned.

What is missing is a result of Japanese tastes and way of doing things; and perhaps a bit of incompetence.

Baka-akaB3862d ago (Edited 3862d ago )

How are they premium in forza when all of them are the same level roughly than the standard gt5 cars and most good racing games ?

Let's not make up crap .

blasian3862d ago

"wings that you wouldnt be caught dead with" lol

Ducky3862d ago (Edited 3862d ago )

Spoiler alert? :D

Mr Marbles3862d ago

LOL spoiler alert, that was actually pretty funny! :)

Genecalypse3862d ago (Edited 3862d ago )

I'm very disappointed in the standard cars, I didnt want them to be a straight copy paste, but thats how it seems to be going atleast.

The 8th video shown, they didint even change the "Gran Turismo 4" logos, and you can clearly see jaggies..I expected more PD.

Edit: Why the disagrees? tell me what you disagree with

Because the GT4 logos were on that car in REAL LIFE, they weren't put on there for the game.

Here is the actual car:

Genecalypse3862d ago
