Hehe I know it's great, and I don't have xbox btw, but either way hehe, 16 cars and that graphics.. not sure on that...
Either way, most likely lisence issues then
Hey guys,

I was just watching the trailer again and paused at 1:21. Just look at the nascar shot from 1:19 to 1:22. If you pause every second, you see that there are about three 24's on the part and three 88's. They are the exact same number (with same paint scheme) just with different colors. And two of the 24's are the exact same color scheme as well! The one that is at the front of the pack and the one that is toward's the rear. So, I have a feeling that gt5 only has a few of the liscenses for the car.

Thanks,
Shashdev
Hopefully they'll make up more skins to fill in those spots not covered by lisenced cars/skins within time til release.
I think I only saw the Impala SS and Camry in the Nascar shot, so they might also be working on getting the other manufacturers in the game.

*Waits to be proven wrong*
I look forward to finding out! Looks like this is going to put Forza to shame with dynamic (possibly realtime) weather, racing at all times of day, more cars and tracks, and the game engine re-built from scratch since GT4. Really itching to get my hands on the finished product!

Well if it's the same as in GT5p i will be dissapointed, it's really not that exiting while you drive..

So will I, but I doubt it will.
I found it entertaining, even if it was not exactly realistic or "right" feel. Probally a game I'm going to buy if I own PS3 at the time it's released.
Oh it was entertaining, but realistically it's just a glorified demo, so not really enough content to keep me busy like LFS has. It was just meant to be a little taster, and it does the job very well.
i just read the ign article . if the game really looks that good it would definitley be a forza killer
yup and hopefully some early 90's sedans.

Yep, sounds hugely impressive..

"Brand new physics" brings a smile to my face.. if it's translated corectly..
i still think forza will be better, but we will see.
forza gets a full damage model for every car.

GT will also have full damage model for all cars, PLUS the interior damage for 170 cars.. Bits will fall off, etc...
Forza can have a better physics then LFS and iRacing combined, the fact that i can't play it with a proper wheel is a huge fail, period..

the porche wheel.
Quote from mutt107 :the porche wheel.

Does it have FF? And besides, i could find a pink Desert Eagle easier then those Porche wheels..
I think i'll finally have to get a PS3, When i first got the Playstation it was for the Granturismo, then the Playstation 2 was for GT3......anyone got any spare PS3's...

In one review i heard that there will be no parts or tires that u can change, just the setups (just like in lfs?)

Seems like a nice game tho, i wish i had PS3 in this case.

Well now is the perfect time There's a sexy slim model coming out in september, 299$/299euros..
Quote from Boris Lozac :299$/299euros..

I dont remember dollar & euro having the same currency

Anyways, i gotta say that im looking forward to PS3 too now. If PS3 had more stuff like instant messaging software or something similar then i would change it for PC - no doubt.
Quote from hazaky :I dont remember dollar & euro having the same currency

Who said they have the same currency? It's 299$ in US, and 299 euros in Europe, that's it..
