This is the best video so far of GT5, but on the most boring track in the world (imo).
Were there any other games at gamescon besides F1 and GT5? (just kidding)

It won Gameshow award because Bioshock Infinite was not nominated as it had not been announced yet when the nominees were decided. :p

Those gameshow awards mean nothing as the nominations are determined before the show actually starts.

Looking forward to the game but whats with the car sounds?

These are Super GT cars they are very loud but in this video they sound like a bunch of civics. :(

thats a point..i thought they were aiming for 1080p with this? Looks nice..although, i dunno if it was the stream, but there seems to be afew framerate drops?

I'm actually looking forward to seeing how well they pull off the Rally races. I also heard F1's in there?

Yeah this is the best vid so far really. I like the cock pit views.


I wish there were a way to have volume control on the adsssss. Just sayinnnnn

Yup, best GT5 video yet. One strange thing i've noticed is that the cars are completely unaffected by environment shadows (at 3:04+ for example), looks really weird and i hope it gets fixed.

they are effected by the shadows, look at 3.37+ the cars are reflecting the sky so much that the shadows cast from trees dont do much. but if you look at 3.37, you can clearly see that as each tree's shadow crosses the car, the car gets darker.

That doesn't make any scientific sense. If that were true, the air casts more light than the actual sun. It's very obvious lighting/shadows are not implemented well on this track.

Nice vid, those cars are awesome...great aerodynamics(better than DTM), so they have a lot of grip on corners.

The cars really does sound weird...Also, what's up with the drivers' names ? Xzavier, Jamarcus, Yair ? LOL funny shit.

Yeah, even before that at 3:27 when the car goes trough that checkpoint/banner, it seems unaffected by its shadow. Weird...

The rest is looking great, oh except those 2d trees(LOL j/k)...

Given the dev time and money poured into this game, I would hope it would win those awards
I don't know how notable its competition was though

You're confronting KORNdog with science ? What are you ? Mad ?

kornDOG doesn't apply science when making up excuses for Sony exclusives, you should know that...

but shadows do not effect highly reflective surfaces, only the reflection itself determines how it looks. in the same way you cannot cast a shadow on a mirrored surface or chrome, you cannot see a shadow cast on these rediculously reflective cars in GT5, at least not from that angle. it's why the shadows are clearly visible on the car at 3.37+, but not at 3.04+. the angle in relation to the sun, and thus the reflections, dont alow you to see the shadows.

NO. Also if the car were as reflective as a mirror you would see the objects directly reflected on the car and they wouldn't simply not exist. Chrome is so reflective of shadows and objects its ridiculous. Everything is affected by light and shadow Korn, even mirrors.
I'm not gonna go through these videos however and take the time to see if the lack of cast shadows is true, I have better things to do :p.

mirros and chrome REFLECT shadows, but they do no recieve them like a dull material would. no matter how you try, you cannot cast a shadow on a mirrored suface if the refection in said surface is bright (the sunny sky as seen in this video) try it, it doesnt work, and looking at how freakishly reflective these cars are, the same thing obviously applies.

you can see the reflection of the dark trees and they go past the car, but the shadows cast by the trees are negated by the brightness of the sky that the car is reflecting.

really, go outside, put a small mirror on the ground so you can see the sky reflected in it, and ask someone to walk beside it. the sahdow will be cast on the ground around the mirror, but all you will see in the mirror is the sky, it wont get darker, it wont change. it will just reflect the sky. that is what's happening here in this video. the only reason the shadows start casting on the car at 3.37+ is becasue the angle of which the sun/sky is reflecting has changed.

but anyway, the cars clearly recieve shadows given the right lighting circumstances. so it's a non-issue.

I just looked at the video again. Shadows do not affect the look of the car as far as I can tell. The sun is pretty low on the horizon if you look at the angle and length of the shadows from trees. It's not possible that we don't see the shadows affect the amount of light that is reflected by the cars. That is not possible, unless the roof itself is a light source or there is a light source that is brighter than the sun shining on the roof from a different angle.

again, look at 3.37+. it's clear as day. look towards the tail light where the reflection of the SKY isnt present. the car clearly goes into shadow as it passes under the shadows cast by the trees. the parts reflecting the sky dont, becasue the reflection of the sky is brighter then the shadow.

Jeezes Korn, you're one hell of a contestant ;o)

Look at this clip: it's an F1 car at spa. Look how much the shadows darken the nose of the car. And F1 are as shiny as any car in the world. I took Spa, because there are trees there ;o)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ldcCq3hzq0

Now, compare that to the GT5 video. That is something completely different.

Damn, so much better than that crappy carting video, I can't believe it.

Now a replay would be incredible.

GT5 looks better. But it mainly depends how much they want to show in these beautiful pristine cars Here is another video, not good quality but nice video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWdtRu7ztRo

  • jmd749
    jmd749 @droezelke: that's the sad part. for the moment I'll be sticking to 1440p, i'll go 4k when Nvidia and AMD release their mammoth 8GB vram new GPUs that are able to run games 4k 60fps solid max settings (28 minutes ago)
