GC07: PGR4 Intro video

GC07: PGR4 Intro video

I've just realized that we completely forgot to put online this video we filmed by chance at the Game Convention last week, showing the full intro video of Project Gotham Racing 4. As far as I can tell this has never been shown before!



I also of course got to play the game at the Game Convention, and I really liked the few minutes I spent there. Graphically the 2 years Bizarre had since the release of PGR3 certainly show, even without the mostly excellent looking weather effects PGR4 definitely beats the previous game hands down.

The new cities also look much more interesting than the rather boring ones from PGR3, since this time Bizarre actually seems to have chosen them for their racing lines and not only to get big names on the cover. Quebec and Macau especially should more than please the fans like me of the small and elevated streets we had in PGR2.

I'm not too sure what to think about the motorbikes though, I'll need quite some more hands on time with them before I can decide if I like their handling or not.

As long as Bizarre manages to lock the framerate to 30 fps, PGR4 should be the game we fans of the series all wanted it to be!

Looks like a great game...but bikes in the rain and snow? No way could you compete in a race with cars.

Thanks Blim, looks amazing. Did you manage to capture any gameplay videos? And did the demo have all of the cars from the final game?
Commented on 2007-08-31 15:41:39
You have got to be kidding me.

Hands down, on my mothers grave...those are the best graphics i have ever witnessed in a video game.

I believe everything was. All PGR intros are real-time. The only CG videos of any PGR game is for teasers when the games are first announced.

Wooohooo, that's crazy! PGR4 will be awesome...

It is 30fps + MOTION BLUR
Think like movies in cinema / TV - shot in 24fps with motion blur.

Looks awesome! Hopefully they bring back the unlockables from PGR1, like the paint jobs, etc. I really enjoyed unlocking things for just playing.

The car reflections on the wet surface are amazing and really go a long way to give off that realistic vibe. Cant wait to play it.

WOW!!! I am a HUGE fan of the Project Gotham series from its birth on the Dreamcast and PGR4 is looking HOT.
How the heck I am going to find the time to play all these amazing 360 games.
Halo3 in Sept, PGR4 in Oct, Mass Effect in Nov....OH LORD!!

I can't wait, it's going to be awesome.

I sincerely doubt that was rendered in real time, it's probably replay (in game) + some post processing which is then edited and saved as a video file. For starters, I doubt it could load all 10 cities (plus vehicles, weather effects etc) one after the other with no load times.
Commented on 2007-08-31 16:26:26
looks fantastic,
that could be my first racing game this year
Commented on 2007-08-31 16:26:46
looks excellent, i really like 2 and 3 and i suspect i will like this one too
Commented on 2007-08-31 16:30:45
Looks even more awesome than GT5, and this is coming from someone who never really cared for PGR. I'll definitely consider this game
Commented on 2007-08-31 16:32:08
Now thats what i'm talking about, What a truly Unvbelievable looking game, seriously... oh my good lord... WOW! Everything from the amazing car models to the insanely detailed backgrounds with fantastic looking weather effects looks truly incredible!

You can say that with pretty much any real-time game trailer where they edit scenes.... Why would a trailer/video have loading? This isn't any different from the latest GT5:Prologue trailers.
