Damn already!? I thought it was about several more hours away!

Christmas is tonight!

Yea, it was supposedly supposed to come out around noon Japan time (11pm EST), but I was quite surprised to find out it's already there.

I was downloading quite fast and got up to 50% in like 5 minutes, and then I guess word got out everywhere that it was up. I'm in the 70 percents now.

Any word on when the NA release will be? I'm just entirely too lazy to get a JapPSN account.

November 11th I think. So if you don't feel lazy before then make a JP account!

Leaving work now!

It's nice, but I was a bit disappointed that there were no in car views. Maybe that is GT5 and not prologue.

10-19-07, 05:25 PM
Supposedly just the default car has no in car view, other cars do. I'm back working now so I haven't had a chance to check it out myself yet.

10-19-07, 05:30 PM
Ah, I was just going to ask about that since I didn't see an in-car view with the default car. Guess I'll try the other ones.

Edit: Yeah, you were right. I tried a different one and it has an in-car view. Thanks for the tip.

that kind of stinks... I don't know why they would make us wait a whole month for a demo. Looks like I'm going to have to find a Jap guide.

EDIT: LOL at your name OWA. :) Can someone link a guide so I can japanize my console?

nvm I found one. http://blogs.ign.com/xheavenxsentx/2006/12/09/39684/

I looked over this link this morning and had my new account set up in about 5 mins.

I got stuck on the address one. I don't think you can put it numbers into the lower ones cause I put numbers only assuming it was probably a phone number field or something. It probably would be easier to find a guide to make an American PSN account cause then you know what to fill out as the fields are probably all in the same places.

Good game but the AI sucks...Badly. First race I finished 20 seconds ahead of the pack.

10-19-07, 10:49 PM
Can somebody post screenshots of the demo?

10-20-07, 01:44 AM
wow, so nice game. Loving the ****pit view :)

10-20-07, 07:47 AM
wow thanks

Nice, after changing cars I am loving the inside views. I wonder why the default car doesn't have one? I can't wait for them to release it for NA. Trying to mess with the options is kinda difficult ;).

Man, that GTR Black Mask car definitely doesn't work well for me. It pushes way too much and doesn't have any brakes. I tried twice with that car and first time I got 8th, then second time I got 7th. Switched over to the EVO X and got first place on my first try. The Lancer is so much easier to keep on the road and it handles a lot better.

I was looking down at the speedometer, and I was like holy crap, they really did something to this Lancer, it's doing 220mph, then I realized it's KPH. :D

Really... That's sweet. Does the clutch work as well or no?

Oh and maybe you should take less pictures and concentrate on driving a little more. :p
