Theres a new trailer on the japanese ps store showing off the GTHD Concept/Demo we will get on sunday. Should check it out.

Things i'd like to point out that will probably be brought up sooner or later:
-improved shadowing/lighting over the last builds. the tunnels cast shadows on the cars now, something that really annoyed me before.
-I think the trailer is kinda misleading for the environment, it blurs it 90% of the time. Still the quality that we have seen before, but im sure PD will improve on it for GT5.
-insane car model detail, I dont think I've ever seen so much detail in a racing game (these small screens dont do it justice); to say it looks like GT4 is laughable
-I think (not 100% sure) the trailer has PR types of AA on it, I dont think the demo will be like this. maybe 2xAA 4xAA max
-reflections are pretty nice compared to before, everything seems to reflect, even the breaklights cast lighting onto the car.

What the Concept/Demo will have..
10 cars
# Suzuki Cappuccino '95
# Mazda Eunos Roadster '89
# Honda Integra Type R'04
# Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV GSR'96
# Infinity G35 Coupe
# Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX GSR'05
# Lotus Elise 111R'04
# Nissan Sky Liner GT-R V Spec II '94
# Toyota Celica GT-FOUR Rally Car '95
# Ferrari 599'06
1 Track
The course is the all new Eiger Nordwand, and you'll be able to race it normal and reverse.
You start the demo off exclusively with the Cappuccino, but by clearing the time attack mode in a pre-set time, you'll be able to unlock the next car. Eventually, you'll unlock a drift trial mode.

On the topic of the GTHD Concept demo itself, Yamauchi revealed that the Christmas Eve download will include Polyphony's next generation driving simulation engine. According to the producer, this engine fixes such areas as drift control and drift angle. As previously announced, the demo won't have online races, but it will offer network rankings separated according to the various cars. Replays from the top ranked players will be available for download, so you can see how the best of the best race.

More downloadable content will become available before GT5's full release. Yamauchi promised a photo mode of some form to become available for download. He wouldn't give a specific time frame.

Yamauchi also promised an official announcement for Gran Turismo 5 before the next Tokyo Motor Show, scheduled for October 27, 2007. We plan on getting close and personal with the GTHD Concept demo until then.

Made a JP account last night just to grab this vid and the demo if I need one. The vid is crazy. I doubt there will be so much AA in game but we only have a couple more days before we can make comparisons.

I agree, see the first post for what I think about the AA.

As Mr.Hunt requested ;), SCEA/PD are putting this on the US/NA PS Store as well, very smart move imo.

Heres the press release for it...
PLAYSTATION(R)Store Offers Gran Turismo(TM) HD Concept Free for PLAYSTATION(R)3 Owners This Holiday Season

World's Most Popular Driving Videogame Franchise Available in Full HD

Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) announced today the December 24 North American release of Gran Turismo(TM)HD Concept, available for free download, exclusively on the PLAYSTATION(R)Store (PS Store) for the PLAYSTATION(R)3 (PS3(TM)) computer entertainment system. Developed by Polyphony Digital Inc., this driving game features an all-new course for players to be the first to drive a Ferrari on a PS3, as well as have the option to select a car from nine other worldwide manufacturers that include Infiniti, Lotus, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Suzuki. Available only for a limited time, Gran Turismo HD Concept takes full advantage of the PS3 PLAYSTATION 3 hardware performance by providing full HD 1080p resolution and next-generation car physics ushering in a new era of racing for the gaming industry.

"Gran Turismo HD Concept provides PS3 and automotive fans a glimpse into the future of Gran Turismo," states Kazunori Yamauchi, famed creator of the Gran Turismo franchise. "With the power of the PS3 technology, the world of Gran Turismo is refined by its full HD visual presentation and unique interactive experience, resulting in an even more realistic and true driving simulator."

Upon downloading Gran Turismo HD Concept, PS3 users have access to the Eiger Nordwand course and can compete in Time Trial races to collect and unlock new cars. Upon unlocking the initial 10 cars, the player has access to 10 more "Tuned Cars," as well as access to a new driving mode called "Drift Trial."

In the "Drift Trial" mode, the player can master the art of drifting and achieve ultimate control of their car. Furthermore, when connected to the PLAYSTATION(R)Network (PS Network), the player can upload their times and view the Top 10 rankings for each car and mode, as well as play and save replays online.

Featured Automobiles in Gran Turismo HD Concept (Year, Manufacturer, Model)

In order of appearance in game (available in stock and "tuned" versions):

-- 1995 Suzuki Cappucino
-- 1989 Mazda Eunos Roadster
-- 2004 Honda Integra TYPE R
-- 1996 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV GSR
-- 2006 Infiniti G35 Coupe
-- 2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX GSR
-- 2005 Lotus Elise 111R
-- 1994 Nissan SKYLINE GT-R Vspec II
-- 1995 Toyota Celica GT-FOUR Rally Car
-- 2006 Ferrari 599

Additional Information About The Game Modes in Gran Turismo HD Concept In "Time Trial" mode, the player selects a car and must complete the Eiger Nordwand course within the target time indicated at the top of the screen. Each time the player beats the target time, a new car is unlocked and made available for selection. As stated, upon unlocking all of the cars, the player can access tuned cars, along with the option to race Eiger Nordwand in the opposite direction.

In "Drift Trial" mode, the player's drifting technique is tested, rather than their lap time. The player earns drift points based on their drift angles, racing lines, and speeds within evaluation zones located at various turns on the course. For each evaluation zone, the results are based on the number of flags and a numerical figure. The point total from all zones determines the player's drift points for the lap and is counted toward the rankings.

The following settings are available during gameplay: 1) Transmission -- the player can select either Manual or Automatic. 2) Stability Management (SM) -- the player can turn this ON or OFF during gameplay. ASM is designed to prevent vehicle skidding by controlling each of the four wheel brakes independently. 3) Traction Control (TC) Level -- the player can set the TCS level, which senses drive-wheel slip and prevents wheel spin. 4) Tires -- the player can select front and rear tires from nine types of brands.

Not sure, thats a kinda weird statement to make. I'd download it first day as well, just incase it's gone the next lol.

Anyways...
As I expected (posted about in the 1st post of this thread) it the AA wouldnt be perfect like the trailer. But still looks amazing imo.
The detail on the car models is insane...

Things i'd like to point out that will probably be brought up sooner or later:
-improved shadowing/lighting over the last builds. the tunnels cast shadows on the cars now, something that really annoyed me before.
-I think the trailer is kinda misleading for the environment, it blurs it 90% of the time. Still the quality that we have seen before, but im sure PD will improve on it for GT5.
-insane car model detail, I dont think I've ever seen so much detail in a racing game (these small screens dont do it justice); to say it looks like GT4 is laughable
-I think (not 100% sure) the trailer has PR types of AA on it, I dont think the demo will be like this. maybe 2xAA 4xAA max
-reflections are pretty nice compared to before, everything seems to reflect, even the breaklights cast lighting onto the car.

What the Concept/Demo will have..

BB, yeah those screenshots look so last gen...lmao. Please, you are going to have some Nintendog fanboys come in and claim their little machine can do it better. If you have read the threads, it is obvious that people have given Sony a lot of flak about the launch. I agree, they should have released at least one million so unfortunate people wouldn't get shot. However, the hardware is pretty remarkable and if people could get their heads out of their collective butts they would realize it. Once the Cell is fully used, and it will be, this machine will be a beast. Nice pics. Kinda of makes the naysayers shut up.

I gotta say thanks to Bad_Boy because if I didn't check my friend's list I wouldn't have known it was up. Downloading it now.....

For some reason it says Dec 24th but it's letting us download now? Hopefully we can play it, lol.

Seems like no AA at all, maybe 2xAA as I guessed earlier. Thats my only problem with the demo. Other than that, its awesome. Just unlocked the g35. The 4th or 5th car or so I think. The first car is slow as ass compared to it.

Theres custom resolution settings I havent seen in any ps3 games yet which is nice to see. I hope more games adopt that. I'm playing @ 1080p of course but theres other settings individual from the XMB.

Man I REALLY need a wheel. I'm alright with the controller but I can't help but think I'll be much better with a quality wheel.

Back to unlocking... :)

edit:
Some other tidbits, the physics are much better than GT4 imo, no damage of course but improved over gt4. The sound as well, 1st person sounds great through the surround sound (I say 1st person because it sounds a little closer to the ground that 3rd person, if that made any sense).

So I can compare 1080i and 720p then. Which ever looks better is what I'll be playing at.

Still no go with the demo yet. Got a couple gifts I need to wrap.(xmastong)
