Newest build shows how the graphics improved in the recent build, look at the Fuji track from Prologue.

Haven't they been talking about this since before the PS3 launched? Duke Nukem Forever comes to mind...

I don't consider the Time Trial a demo, it was only a few hundred megabytes. It doesn't represent the game at all.

How can you tell anything from those fuzzy pics was the colors were prolly photochopped and all i could see was some dirt in the grass and maybe some fog...

Awesome improvement. The main difference being the dirt/grass. The road being not so over shiny ala GT3/4 is nice too, as well as the tyre marks. The mountains look insanely good, but being a photo of the screen I know how that can cause a nice dramatic blue lighting effect that tends to make graphics look more realistic than they are. A huge improvement though, I'm excited again :)

Sure but the track wasn't laser scanned, wheel support is nothing to write home about, useless FFB and I didn't really like the "new" handling.

Those are important points for a racing game. The only area where GT shines are the car models. AI racing is boring and I don't want to race against the PS3 kids online.

^It still does not represent the game, as it was only for the competition. I don't understand how

is relevant.

I doubt many kids will be racing online in GT. If anything the PS3 has the largest community of older gamers from recent polls. Funny mention playing online with little kids, guess you don't play any of the popular online games on the PC. :p

You can't judge the handling on a demo that was scrapped together for a tournament. It doesn't represent the final product. As for wheel support. Um it's a big thing when they support all the popular wheels and offer excesive customizing in the options.

I don't see how laser scanning the track is important when they are known for bringing one of the most (if not the most) accuracte track recreations in a game.

Plus they have NASCAR!

Because the GT Series has clearly been played by immature brats... The Wheel customization options were far more then just button mapping and FFB Settings.

I remeber watching a video from the developer where he went through the wheels settings where you can change alot of the actually sensetivity of the wheel to how much oversteer you have.

I was asking about the bolded part in my quote. Why is this TT demo not representative when it comes to the new handling?

It has 3 steering wheel options: Steering Type, Power-Assisted Steering and Feedback Strength. No axis adjustments, no pedal options, no steering angle options...
For all the other stuff you have to relay on the build-in steering wheel customizations.

I know you always have to defend PS3 related stuff but please don't tell me those are excessive steering wheel options.

Because the TT Demo had alot of options removed to make the size alot smaller. It was designed for a single compitition, not for full gameplay analysis. I'll try to find the video of the developer going through the customization of the controls, it was very extensive.

I mean game will even support head motion tracking... the developer knows what racing fans wants. Theres a reason why the GT series is called Car Porn Game.

02-13-10, 01:36 PM
So you think they took out parts of the handling/physics just to make the size smaller? That would be stupid, especially because it was a TT competition where everything is about car control.

They took out the options to customize your settings to the full extent. The physics should be different since well the TT Demo didn't even offer collision damage which they stated will be in by the games release.

The Demo released in Dec, The final game will probably not release till this holiday season probably... im pretty sure they are continuing to tweak the games engine, I doubt all they are doing is sitting on their asses.

It is good that they are polishing this game more. This Q4 it has to be released otherwise the name should be changed GT5 to GT forever. (lee63)

There are some nice cam videos too

GT5 surely will be great for anyone who loves cars. They also have top gear track. Due to some reason Porsche is not there but if for all those who cannot buy cars like Merc sls amg or if you like Ferrari italia 458, toyota ft-86 latest nissan gtr v spec etc this game has it along with many more production and supercars all look photo-realistic :captnkill:

PS: Great Mclaren F1 is there but hope they can also include Mclaren 12C sooner or later

slaWter, the cars in the TT demo were tuned specifically for the GT academy. It's not how they would behave when you fire up the game.
