Quote from RMZ125 :I'm just looking forward to the new X1 prototype. Fastest car on the game.

It'll be boring to drive as it'll be 'too good'.

Same with Skylines. Brilliant cars if you have a brain the size of a pea, a penchant for pointlessly large exhausts, and find 12 year old girls attractive when you do lap after lap of the local town trying to look like you have a penis bigger than a grain of rice.

The best thing about the Skyline is that the latest one isn't even called a Skyline, but it annoys Nissan lovers (bet you never thought you'd hear that phrase!) if you call it one. Ha ha ha ha.
Quote from beefyman666 :How could they get rid of Midfield Raceway?! That was one of the best made up tracks on any racing game. Ever.

I enjoyed midfield as well. I've already had gt5 preordered for a while, and I just ordered a PS3 160gb yesterday because it came w/ a free extra controller.
Quote from bunder9999 :it won't... i've played GT since the first one, and while they are fun games, they are nowhere the simulation they claim to be, and i'm reasonably satisified it never will.

as for it being a LFS replacement, maybe for those who just want to drive fancy cars around... and have already plopped down the money on a next-gen console. i haven't. to be honest, i still can't be bothered to buy one...

if you want an idea of how unrealistic gt* is, drive into the wall, floor the gas and let go of the steering wheel... or try driving the wrong way with your hands off the wheel.

I'm not saying it's in LFS/iRacing league, but lapping that Academy Demo gave me that 'sim satisfaction', where i felt like i know where i'm doing wrong, made me want to drive it lap after lap.. the weight distribution was awesome.
Quote from Luke.S :probably the skyline. Well 999 of the 1000 cars are skylines

And the other one is the X1 prototype.

I'll probably end up getting loads of cars, build them then sell them to do most of the events in career mode, but I'd spend the spare cash on tuning some Japanese performance cars.

Dang, how did you know?!
[Insert Miata owner hairdresser stereotype joke here]

In all seriousness, gonna install the G25, again, back in to the living room tomorrow. Been playing GT4 a lot now, if only the physics weren't so utter crap in it. Not that GT5 will be much better in that area.

Edit: Just noticed that some of the cars have been changed from standard to premium in the car list, including the F40.

Yes, seen that yesterday, great for F40... Veyron is still Standard though, not really care, but judging by those scans i can't figure out how is that 'standard'..
I think the standard exterior models are more than adequete, premium ones are bordering on overkill in the modelling department from what I have seen.

The biggest issue, for me, is the lack of cockpit, or even bonnet view, from the standard models.

Bumper cam, and external cam are massive immersion killers for me.
There is no bonnet view on standart cars ? :O
It's not about perfection, it's about FUN

xD
I don't doubt it will be fun, and I am perfectly aware that perfection isn't possible, but a cockpit, or at the very least, a bonnet view, does go along way to help with some sense of immersion.

As far as has been mentioned so far, standard cars have external cam, or bumper cam.
Quote from speed1230 :It's not about perfection, it's about FUN

OMG, way too many people would be happy if it's FUN What is FUN exactly? I want it to be a SIM dammit, not fun as "TDU fun"..
I couldn't care less about the cars really, it's the track list which disappoints me. I expected Midfield and Seattle as a starting point, I thought they were a given in any Gran Turismo game. I know they're ficitional, but I don't subscribe to the "real trackz is best" theory, I don't care if a track exists in real life or not, what matters is the layout and what the track looks like.
That kinda sucks. Seattle was great in the faster cars in the opening bits.. jumping up the various blocks.. having to brake before a jump so you slowed down enough for the corner at the top of the hill (I can't count how many times I tried to brake in mid air ).
Quote from Boris Lozac :What is FUN exactly?

It's like...
Sort of like...
Kind of like...
Well not the arcade kind of fun but the "challenging" fun for this game is what I'm talking about
Quote from dawesdust_12 :(I can't count how many times I tried to brake in mid air ).

Same here!
200mph! Oh shi- *crash*
Seattle is GONE!? I have fond memories of that track


Controller options - you can map a button for the wipers, flash lights, high/low beams. Looks much the same as in the Time Trial, but with extras
G25-G27 users will run out of buttons

Good job i'm using a DFP
Can turn off opening movie with crap music at 1:30 in that video
Is the momo supported on ps3?
Quote from DejaVu :Is the momo supported on ps3?

Yep, but i couldn't assign the buttons for it, at least in GT5p and GT Time trial, meaning i didn't have left/right looks for example..
Quote from MijnWraak :Can turn off opening movie with crap music at 1:30 in that video

I actually like the Lounge music in GT5

Kaz says there is plenty of Lounge - Drum and Bass in GT5, as far as the menu music goes. Even in GT5 Prologue, there was enough music that it never felt stale.

You can use your own music in any case

The PS Eye head tracking will free up 2 buttons for look left/right, so that helps
All I'm going to use is past GT menu music for the menu screens
