Yeah, that was effin' hilarious. Anyone who finds this video offensive is either a) a fanboy, or b) hypersensitive (in that case, GTFO the internet).

You gotta admit though, the actual serious driving was pretty realistic in terms of grip and cornering!

This is my favorite GT 5 compilation yet

I tried this and failed for the most part. Although it was pretty fun.
My friend has a slower connection, so a bit of online lag helped too, haha xD

Hey guys, just a quick question, is the bugatti veyron just a standard car? or is it premium too? I unlocked one by wining one of the races but it is a standard car, and Bugatti ins't on the dealerships menu, if it's just standard then it's a bummer because is the fastest street legal car in the world (correct me if I'm wrong)and it's amazing. So does anyone know if there's one premium?

Nice, a disagree for asking a question, at least have the balls to reply and say something.

Its a standard car. i was gutted when i found out ;( unlocked it today myself.

Yep, Veyron's standard. Not a big deal for me, personally, but I can understand why it'd be popular. To me, it says a lot of good things about Polyphony and GT5 that the Fiat 500 is premium and Veyron's standard :D
I'm more spiffed that they didn't include the SuperSport. Now that, I'd be interested in driving.

zireno4684d ago

thanks guys, it disappointed me that it's not a premium but oh well, it's not a big deal. thanks again and bubbs to both of you :).

PlayStation 3: chasing the 1080p dream, part three - Gran Turismo 5 and the indie explosion

From Digital Foundry: "Welcome to the third part in the biggest DF Retro episode we've ever produced - a year-by-year look at how 1080p gaming fared on the PlayStation 3. Launched in 2007 touting its then-exclusive HDMI digital interface, Sony layered full HD gaming on top of its Cell processor and RSX 'Reality Synthesizer' as key selling points for its third generation console. Of course, we all know how that turned out - both Sony and Microsoft machines routinely ran the most advanced titles at sub-720p resolutions, often with questionable performance, so what happened to the 1080p dream?

In the first two parts of John Linneman's investigation, we've covered off the first four years of the Triple's lifecycle and moving into 2010, the overall fortunes of the PlayStation 3 continued to improve. The platform holder released - what was then - the most advanced motion controller in the console space, backed up by experiments with stereoscopic 3D, which turned out to be a short-lived but still formidable pairing. Combined with a strong E3 showing, PS3 was looking good.

However, it's fair to say that it was a fallow year for 1080p gaming on the system, with only Scott Pilgrim Saves The World's razor-sharp pixel art upscaling, Castle Crashers and Soldner X2's 3D/FMV stylings accommodating full HD output - alongside a wonderful Monkey Island remaster."

Just remember ladies and gentlemen, Sony never said all games would be 1080p. Only that the system would support games up to 1080p in a survey before the system was released.
And as we saw, some games did support it, some games tried their best to support it and some games didn't or never reached it.

Is a higher resolution great to have if you can do it? Sure. Is it necessary for a fun game? No

But what I find interesting is Eurogamer. Are they really talking about HD and PS3 in their article or are they really pushing their 4.50 Euros 4K video download subscription? Seems one is being used to sell the other. Just look at the bottom of the article.

Michiel1989435d ago

thats what every company tries to do, push for people to buy their products. Are you really gonna blame them for that?

ApocalypseShadow434d ago

Not all articles are about selling. They're about informing or entertaining.

Maybe I'm supposed to watch the video instead of reading. But I shouldn't have to click. But the article lazily tells us some games did hit 1080p and some didn't. I didn't learn anything new as I own the console. Then, they push a Patreon subscription.

Are you saying every opinion, preview, review and rant article requires a push to buy something now? Tell me which sites are prone to do so so that I can avoid them in the future.

Michiel1989434d ago

not everyone played during the ps3 era. I started during snes era but loved seeing articles/videos about how gaming evolved before that.

i dont think this article is trying to push you to get that patreon sub, it doesnt for me at least. I dont think theres anything wrong putting an ad at the bottom of the article. all the regular DF videos are free already.

SonyStyled435d ago

Wipeout HD on PS3, a remake of the PS1 game was 1080p 60fps. And that released in 2007-08

This really feels like a filler article. I don't feel like I learned anything notable or substantial from this. I feel they could have reduced the unnecessary intro and over-explanation of things and put the whole series in one article for a more substantial and possibly informative piece rather than piece-mealing it out as they have.
