And that's surprising for a car that has been copypasted?
You will not be able to play straight away,
It takes around an hour to install Gran turismo 5 and...
Make sure you have got more then 10G left on your ps3 because
GT5 eats it up straight away..
You know what, you could chat shit and post screenshot comparisons till the cows come home, but this is the fact of the matter.......(and I am not sure what the purpose of posting screenshots from a completely different game and trying to pass it off as Forza, smacks of desperation, but I digress.....)

GT5 is (supposedly, I haven't played it yet), the definitive next-gen console racing game, and its Sony's AAA, flagship racing product, correct?.

Right, assuming above statement is accurate, and regardless of what you think personally about the models, does 4/5th's of the vehicle content live up to that statement?, I think not.

Nuff said.

Seeing as i have a day off on wednesday and the game will most likely arrive in my mail at wednesday morning... that's no problem for me!
I have heard that you can actually do a background install, where it will install content as required, rather than doing it all before you start playing.

Speaking as a GT, Sony PS3 fanboy ... I can't help but agree with you. I think that it's like giving a cracker to a staved kid. Where just happy happy to have a cracker! "Damn, that was the best cracker I've had in my life, that can't be no ordinary cracker, what was that a ritz?"

And I'm saying this, because I'm ****ing pissed at sony for removing the Other OS feature from the PS3. The PS3 is to this day, the ONLY console in the history of consoles to LOSE features as it's gotten older. But as I'm a GT fanboy, I will shut up and stand in line to get my copy of GT5, because it's not Polyphony digitals fault for the transgressions of the parent company, and the fact remains that this is the best racing game on the console, if not on the planet.

Do I care that FORZA has more cars? No.
Do I care that FORZA has been doing damage longer? No.
Will I ever? I doubt it.

have you heard that by todays and tech standards that the ps3/wii/xbox are already years out of date ??

and infact that they should upgraded/changed every year or two to keep up but unlike pc's cant be done*

* ps3 can have HD changed.Their the same as laptops



tbh it'll be fun for those who enjoy it, those who dont.. play forza... if you dont play either... your fcuked. End off.
What about those that play both then?

wasting their money, its all a waste of money in the greater scheme of things but we Have to put up with it.

i shall have both ( currently have forza... no comments needed ) and well, i know i will never be Fully happy with either without nitt-picking like most posters; though at the same time... i just wanna get in the bay window and do the ring, i wanna rally a dc5 around london without dyin of understeer and most importantly of all, i wanna go into a kart race with no assists and listen to controller fags scream " traction FTWWWWWWWWWWWW STOP HIDING ! " or equally amusing, 24 hours of the fiat 500.
Waste of money?, its all relative, people spend far, FAR more on things like fags and booze, which I personally think is a complete waste of money.

Each to their own, gaming is a pretty cheap hobby these days, what with buying games of the internet, and how much they are discounted.


The women to the right looks scary.
I'm not really bothered with the low detail standards tbo, what worries me more is the lack of pace the AI has been showing in all these vids.

All of the more recent videos show very competitive AI, so
According to OPM (Official playstation mag)....

Quote :"Curious to test my virtual opponents' skill, I slam on the anchors and my immediate followers waste little time in powering past," it reads.

So far, so good for Sony's much delayed racer then.

"But just as things are looking promising, carnage ensues," the feature continues.

"Even though my car is easily avoidable, parked on the side of a wide straight, I watch the rear view hoping the next batch of rapidly approaching cars do the smart thing and veer around.

"They don't, and in that fraction of a second, the impact reverberates beyond the DualShock3.

"Gran Turismo 5's AI remains a long way short of passing the Turing Test."

OPM goes on to say that it seems as though AI has lost some much needed attention to other areas of the game such as graphics and content.

Ultimately, though, the mag labels the game as "unquestionably the most complete Gran Turismo experience to date. All those years waiting have been worth it."

Don't stop in the middle of a race and you'll be fine

Sounds like multiplayer LFS

What???, in these vids they mostly trounce him on the straights, then brake uber early and carry pathetic corner speed.

Around 2:35 the Mazda even brakes after the apex.

There are many others showing the same.

What he said. GT5 isn't the ultimate parking simulator (or crashing simulator for those complaining about damage)
Review embargo is lifted on Wed 24th at 8.01am, so don't expect any reviews till then.
Here's another good video from that french guy Chris, real racing driver..
Something happened with his rear left tyre, started smoking at the end of the race, he believes since he is Level 10, that he 'unlocked' tire wear and damage, said he hit the wall in the other race and felt the damage..

Surely the game would tell you if you'd unlocked something as important as tyre wear and damage?
