that doesn´t matter this is GT5 we are talking about. No point in discussing unofficial dates, even official dates can be easy postponed but this unofficial dates are just worth nothing.
C'mon E3.... Mid-june feels like it is a damn year away!

Not only for GT5 info, but for the NFS game by Criterion (yes, I'm one of the few who are still interested :razz and TDU2.

Will Scavier make an appearance at E3 with LFS S3?
no, GT5 BETTER HAVE A SCIROCCO, ive waited to lond for a decent car...
I heard they are delaying GT5 again to include the Scirocco.

Sorry, I had to.
Such a staggered release date is bad if true - since the PS3 is not region locked, many people might want to import
Until GTPlanet post it, it aint anything more than weak gossip.

Theres no way PD will go to E3 (June 15-17, so 4wks away) and announce GT5 coming out the same month, no way, not buying that. With 2-6 weeks till this completely fictional Asian release date, it'd be stupid to have not made a song & dance about it coming out then because im sure they'd love to make that announcement as they must be aware of the friction the lack of a release date has on its fans.
They wouldnt make any important announcements right before E3, seeing as its the biggest games expo of the year... it just doesnt add up, not within such a short timeframe and so close to E3. It'd be bizarre to wait for E3 and give nothing away till it was stupidly close to a regions release date, and it'd be very uncharacteristic of Sony to let them announce a Asian release date go when they'd rather hold off 1 surprise they could save for E3, afterall we go to E3 these days with 80% of the information given either already announced, or leaked in the week leading to it, Sony joked about the fact that official video of the PSP Go was out before they'd even announced it at E3.
It'd also be odd given recent comments saying the game is 90% complete, then a month later announce its gone gold and being shipped.

I'd expect mid November (Asia) & late October (US & Europe)... if we've all been good boys & girls for santa, and i'd expect the annoucement to come at E3 or worse the Tokyo game show in mid September and a later launch than above.

I won't... I will never get used to the currency in the game.

Besides, the US/EU versions will have english soundtracks and a maybe a few more cars (like GT4 did.)

Another long vid, showing the full 24 hour track, and the various views. I think he is using Pro physics mode - he loses it everytime he clips the curb and goes a little off track

Ferrari Enzo cockpit love!

I like the fact the Ford GT jumped out of line at the rolling start
You can also see the cars shift weight as they come around the turn into the start

Quote :I am, and might be a lot better than you.
Conditions were very bad, read infos : broken wheel, plastic pedals, no sounds because of the recorder so I wasn't aware where the reving and the grip were at, first time ever with the Enzo, etc. Don't forget S2 tires and GT5 pro physics that do not forgive. Remember about GT Academy 2/Time Trial Demo ?

Quote :Gameplay of 2002 Ferrari Enzo using a Driving force GT, pro physics and no aids (I think ABS is set on 1). Track is Nürburgring GP. There were only 8 cars on track but i'm positive there'll be more on final release.

Transmission : Automatic (shifters were broken)
Driving Physics : Professional
Driving line : Off
Active Steering : Off
Traction control (TCS) : 0
Front Tires : S2
Rear Tires : S2

Physics seemed a little bit more like Time Trial Demo than what it was in GT5 CES 2010 demo.

Video recorded in 720p@50fps from 1080p Bravia screen, using a tripod, a Panasonic TZ7 and a Zoom H2 recorder.

Note : There were two demos around the Playstation truck running on PS3 Test : one time limited and the other with unlimited number of laps but none of them had the replay function. Option on the main menu was disabled so I wasn't able to turn off music while racing. AI didn't amazed me at all. AI drivers now have names (selected randomly ?) : Titus, Grant, Shawn, Keagan, Jasper, Giovanni, Rodrigo, Keith, Haiden, Phoenix, Yahir, Humberto, Jimmy, Jason, Kai, Jayson, Russell, Jared, Milton, Carlos, Omari, Harper, Zachary, etc. I think it's part of the "more human IA experience" ; maybe one name is linked to one particular behaviour just like in NFS Shift. No more active stability management setting (ASM) in the option menu. Engine noises still sound a "little" poor. The sparks effect looked very poor to me as well, at least, we know sparks will be there.

Graphics seemed to have improved a little bit. Atmosphere around the Nürburgring changed, it was less yellowish than the one in GT5 CES 2010 demo (seasons changes ?). The whole experience felt more like PC sims, with subtle handling and accurate track details but low on effects or polygons ; whereas games like Dirt that have beautiful 3D moving trees and lots of visual effects but got an arcade handling.

It says error occured, on that video...
Quote from Boris Lozac :It says error occured, on that video...

try again, it should work, I just checked

The cockpit looks really nice. All the materials are rendered well, with the carbon fiber looking really good.
Even has shift lights on the wheel top. I had a look at Forza 3's and it doesn't look anywhere near as good, and no shift lights. Forza has better sounds of course, but I don't think this is final for GT5, since none of the racing cars have transmission whine from the Time Trial

Error again Maybe it has some country limit or something.

shut down IE and restart it if your using it, I get all sorts of weird flash player errors in IE. Otherwise try FireFox


This is the first time I've seen brake lockup actually causing understeer in a GT game

first you see the AI black Enzo, lock up, with smoke, go off track at 2:30
AI also acting more human

Then you see Mimaximax doing the same at 3:05
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0zO41mr9-I

I guess this means ABS is not automaticly on for all cars now...
But doesn't the Enzo have ABS in real life?
I'm on Opera, that R8 video worked, but that third one is also giving me an error, tried in Firefox too..

The guy who filmed this sent me some photos he made from the booth. Its the same truck that stood on the IAA, but one detail caught his eye.



Look at the track map on the bottom, its not the 24h Combo nor the Tourist version, but the old Track with its old Start/Finish straight. I'm wondering, do we get the Südschleife too

Video of ZR1 - it's listed a premium model in the selection menu, interesting. Also there was oversteer in Standard physics mode with S3 tyres, certainly something that didn't happen in Prologue.
It looks like Standard physics is now inbetween the Standard and Pro physics in Prologue, and Pro is now more hardcore

Premium = damage and cockpit?
Premium means fall off bodyparts, modelled engine and under hood/boot area. Every car should get a 3D cockpit, according to some interview quoted pages ago.
The Audi R8 and Citroen GT also had premium labels. Now this is a surprise to me, since I thought extensive damage would be mostly limited to race/rally cars and maybe some concept cars.

So it seems like some manufacturers are quite happy to see their cars get all beat up

Also Nürburgring at night confirmed for GT5

to bad they are still not ready to show us the damage model, I hope they did some progress since the last time they showed us the damage model.

I know audi said they are all for it as long as the aim of the game isn't to destroy cars. They said it when forza 3 came out
Quote from Boris Lozac :Aren't like all tracks confirmed to have a night mode, some time ago... ?

not by third party people, and not seen by them in person, until now. As they say, until someone sees it running, nothing is 100% sure
I'm guessing that will be sick, with headlights and all.. but what would be even more insane is that you could choose the day settings, i'm not big of a fan of night racing, but beeing able to choose dusk, sunset, cloudy, sunny... at least.. that would be really cool.
