New Gran Turismo 5 trailer:
Updated 07/12/2007 5:05 AM Post a reply Quote this post View GT2000's info
As some of you know E3 2007 is happening at the moment with Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony showing off there new 1st and 3rd party games to the media. Anyway while browsing through all the news articals (takes a while) and such I was met with a GT5 trailer link. Unibrow

click

In game or not? I'm not sure. The first part looks like a CG video but the cars racing on track looks like replay game footage to me. Either way its impressive stuff

The first part is indeed CG. But everything else is in game, anyone notice the huge difference in engine noises?

Nice vid. Engine sounds are great, but at points sure seem to be dubbed in. Watch as the R8 brakes while going into a turn yet you hear the engine wind up through a gear. Plus we should've heard the Doppler effect at that point. Regardless, the sound quality itself is very exciting.

At which point do you think it transitions from CG to the game engine? I'd say possibly as the camera crosses the threshold of the window when exiting the Xanavi, but possibly before that, based on the very detailed in-car screenshot I've seen.

It's real nice to see that F430 going around the track! The R8 looks awesome, and of course they had to tease us at the end with the forthcoming Skyline GT-R. I swear PD are Nissan shills. I've owned more Nissans than any other brand, and I still feel justified in saying that. There are around 100 Nissans in GT4, yet there are 88 marques to choose from...

That's a good vid. They're really lovin on the GT-R in this one. I'm real interested to see how the in-car view will turn out.

I'm having my TV professionally calibrated in a couple days, so it will be interesting to see how it affects the picture for video games. The calibrations are typically focused on picture quality for video sources, but the person I hired has done a lot of PS3's so hopefully I'll get a good improvement on both.

Anyone with a good DVD collection will most likely have a free set of calibration tests for video and sound. Movies which include the THX Optimizer can be used to set up the colour on most TVs and to check the sound adjustments and wiring. Even though you may think you have wired up your speakers properly, I do know of people who found out their speakers were assembled incorrectly at the factory and one or more speaker was out of phase. Some LCD TVs are a problem because they don't allow some colour adjustments when using component inputs. Some colour tests require red/blue "glasses".

THX has a list of 652 movies which include the THX Optimizer.

Sure there are other, even better, tests, but the Optimizer is free and will get you going today. Using these tests turned and older CRT TV into a real trooper with a very nice image, but you may have to play around a bit with brightness/contrast levels for GT4. I found the tests made it look pretty dark, even though the game is dark to begin with.
Cheers,

Do you by chance frequent the AVS Forums?

Thanks for the tips! I've had a copy of DVE since it came out on DVD way back when, which I use to check up on friends and families' sets. Only problem now with a DLP is I can't use the old brightness "blooming" method to arrive at good contrast levels. I have a copy of GetGray's DLP oriented calibration disc, but I've the feeling that my display can do quite a bit better. I own a Samsung, and the service menu in these puppies has so many adjustments it's not even funny. After long deliberation and reading about unanimous praise for the company in contracted, I decided to bite the bullet and have the set professionally calibrated. We'll see how it goes tomorrow!

Prologue may have around 40 cars.

Prologue may get released before the Tokyo Auto Show, in October.
The date is uncertain still.

A PSP version of GT may still get released after GT5 gets released.
(This is restated, really old news.)

This is just a summary of a Japanese article about Kaz at a Japanese business centre showing off Prologue.

I'll believe October when I see it. PD is notorious for missing deadlines in the pursuit of what they feel to be perfectionism. Every one of these games has many technical flaws though, not to mention the lack of AI, blah blah blah. Regardless, that screenshot sure looks nice.

October 2008 is more like it. They really should get on the ball. With Forza racking up sales and GTR coming out soon the heat should really be felt by PD. This is a really good year for racing titles. With Forza 2, PGR3 and NFS: ProStreet. I just love it when alot of racing games flood the market. Smile

PD does not seem to pay much attention to the competition, at least they haven't til now.
For one thing, because of the PS2 hardware, I don't think it mattered what anyone else did.
They couldn't do it, so they beat a different path.

With the capabilities of the new hardware and what it will allow them to add to the game, will this change? I doubt it. My feeling is they live in their own world and pretty well nothing affects what they do or what they want to do. SONY may influence them and we may be able to influence SONY (witness canceling the macro-transaction GT:HD fiasco...), but beyond that, it's La-La-Land.
Cheers,

I agree but you must also think. The GT series has never really been threatened by another Simulation racer. Forza was really the first cometitive Simulation type racer for GT. But I suppose they really shouldn't worry unless another game comes out on the PS3. I surely wouldn't have bought my 360 just for Forza 2. But I will buy a PS3 just for GT. The GT community is much more...to use the term loosely, "loving". We respect eachother more. It seems Forza players love to trash talk. I've only seen a few times here or at GTplanet where people have been rude. Got to forzamotorsport.net and it is a totally different story. Anyway I gotta run.

1000 cars lining up for GT5?
Updated 08/01/2007 2:06 PM Post a reply Quote this post View GT2000's info
I have beat the guy above in a straight race on Forza 2. however his american friend(s) seem to like to messing around a little two much for me and thats the problem with online racing/gaming.

Anyway, on with the news that 1000 cars are set to line up for GT5 but there is a small problem... Only 340 are to be included on Polyphony Digitalís disc.

CVG reports that Sony Japan has confirmed that a massive 1000 cars are set to appear in the upcoming Gran Turismo 5 Ė though it has also been suggested that only 340 of those will come bundled on the Blu-Ray disc. The rest of the content will be accessible via Sonyís online PlayStation Network Ė though whether they will cost any additional money is yet to be seen.

I can tell you right now I will think long and hard before supporting GT5 if PD intend to nickel and dime gamers to death with "microtransactions" for extra cars.
