Need for Speed pursues, Black Ops drops
GT5 is a drug! Hopefully my PS3 can keep up with the amount it's being used.
I know! I just bought Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare and Tekken 6 but I haven't played them yet because I cant stop playing GT5
Im telling everybody again, buy this game. Fuk what you heard or read in some negative review. This game AWESOME.
No hud premium cars in car view is so damn good... in the rain and night.
Night driving is awesome, especially with the fireworks going off. The tuscany challenge was really nice.
No HUD, in car view and solid steering wheel.
And to think people were bashing this game, this just shows no matter how much u bash a game it will not stop the quality coming throw and the fans will love it and make it a huge seller.
The ps3 community has to come out and buy this game and sony must do heavy advertising on all major titles to boost sales.at the end of the day strong sales=profit. NPD #,s for december should tell the story.
NPD isn't the entire world. Just like every other Gran Turismo game it'll sell 10 million plus copies when it's all said and done. Hell every PS3 exclusive is like that. Start off slow and then sell really high later down the road.
European love cars and Football, and American love their Ruby OR NFL, so NPD doesn't meant shit
ed: (del) Second thoughts, two posts above me posted while i was typing my two cents have already covered it.
Actually, the negative reveiws did slow GT5 sales down. The game would have been selling at a more rapid rate had there been 9.9s across the board which is what it rightly should have been getting. I have no clue why the gaming media ragged on this game that so obviously drips with quality but I'm sure there's a story behind it and we will never really know why they did what they did.
Sony lets their games speak for themselves. If a game is good people will tell/show their friends and the friends will buy it. They don't need massive marketing budgets to tell people they have to buy the game. Sure this isn't the way to get massive day one sales but the games have longer tails. This is why you see PS3 games stay at higher price at retail for longer than 360 games. Look at Halo Reach it took 2 months for the title to drop down to $40 new. You wont see GT5 for $40 until September at the soonest.
best game evah!
After the massive turn around Sony did with the PS3 despite all the hate, prophecies of doom and negativity they got, I have learned to ignore them now. Looks like GT5 isn't doing as badly as the trolls and haters had hoped it would.
GT5 is the best racing game i've ever played..go and buy it!! my friend at first complained about the shadows and some blocky pixel, but the more he played it the more he likes it..and now just can't stop playing it..cause the value is there, the graphic is beast especially premium cars, the handling is superb cause each car presented very well and differently, need some time to get used to it..GT5 is really a great game that no one should miss, i can say it is better than previous GT series..
Well done Sony and PD. It's crazy the word of mouth the name GT carries,especially in Europe.
awesome gt5 is a beast.
So much for the negative reviews then. GT5 is a great game. But PD please take note... Add a career mode or some other content.
i got my GT5 copy last week ..it's awesome
i loved it, definitely a 9 in my book!
The fact is GT has a legacy.that others devs cant even come close to let along the amount of realistic tuning. GT been around for years and perfects each gt title that arrives. media will knock this game if they prefer 360. or they cant get on with simulations cos no matter how you cut it. you can play forza take corners at high speeds not get too effected .try that on GT with loimitations turned off for real simulation. oh wait you cant you dont get that option. but cant you change your tires. soft get more speed racing hard perhaps. are you slipping at the corners change your camber angle your wheels.? what do you mean you cant. lol GT will always be the no1 simulation and only simulation.everything else is arcade. !!
