UK Version has awesome Top Gear stuff, so I'll wait.
Well, this game make all other simulator racing games look like Atari 2600 racers.
Is this THE Gran Turismo 5, or just a little piece of the full version?
THINK OF IT AS A BUDGET TITLE VERSION OF GT5, A TASTE OF THINGS TO COME!!!up:
It's not the full version.
It's neither full or demo. It's something like The Dark Knight's prologue (I take it that you're also a TDK fan ).
And here's a new trailer
The city track looks amazing. Really even without car damage, everything is a huge step up over GT4. Physics, sound effects are noticeably improved. Nothing beats going into cockpit view, nothing.
They've reiterated that GT will have car damage, but the amount of which is up to the wishes of the individual manufacturers for their vehicles. Not that Forza ever had realistic car damage either.
Anyway, Polyphony wishes us all a merry Christmas

I bought a PS3. I might have to get this eventually
You seem sad about that
Do you feel dirty for owning a PS3?
RPGs and certain epic adventure games need to have prologues released, not racing games.
when its a game thats as realistic and takes so long to develop like GT, than yeah it does need one
I have to agree, why the hell would you release a "prologue" version of a racing game? Racing games don't have prologues, because they don't have definite beginnings, middles, and ends. Sort of like a story, which would be required for a "prologue".
Wouldn't the lack of a beginning middle and end make it perfect for a prologue to get people hooked into it, whilst still keeping the content starved to the point where they'll want the full thing when it comes out like a year from now.
Wouldn't a demo fill the same role?
True enough. They can make money with a Prologue.
Also true. I suppose selling "GT5 Prologue" would come off more favorably than selling "GT5 Demo" on PSN.
Its just a name. They could have called this Gran Turismo 2008 and called it a day
I realize. Though, I'm just confused as to why they'd release what amounts to an expanded demo version and sell it as a "Prologue" to the real thing. I understand the money-making prospect and logic behind this, though it would make more sense just to release a standard demo version considering how quickly the real thing will follow it up.
It just seems like they're trying to sell it as an actual standalone game and not just a precursor/supplement.
they already released a demo in the form of GT HD Concept, not to mention that Japan received a demo version of Prologue. People dont have to get Prologue as they can always go play those until the long wait for GT5 to come out. Prologue is supposed to be expanded with more to offer than that. HD Concept only had 20 cars, only 1 track and just a trial and drift mode. Prologue will have 16-player online races, 37 cars, 10 tracks. GT4 Prologue did fairly well so it only makes sense that they'd do the same with GT5
I'm really interested to see how the additional number of cars on the track will alter the gameplay. On some of the city tracks having lots of cars will add a different dynamic.
