Gran Turismo 5 Prologue screens

Polyphony Digital goes pedal to the metal with this new shipment of images for Gran Turismo 5: Prologue on the Playstation 3. Some had the pleasure to test drive the demo of this car simulation, available on the japanese Playstation Network since a couple of weeks and until November the 30th. The complete game will be sold December the 13th over there.

GT5 marks the first time I've ever confused a photograph with a screenshot! Can't wait to see how the online works out.

Every game's Small screen can be confused with reality, even Wii's Cruisin'.
Well, maybe not that one...

Nah, I'm not talking about the thumbnails, but even then GT5 is the first game to look like a photograph. I've never confused another racer for real life, and I've been around for them all! It still amazes me what they're accomplishing with this game.

The car models look great, the tracks not so much... extremely generic, bland and flat.

I am not impressed as an overall package pgr4 looks way better. Even the car models look downgraded from what they where showing a year ago.

They showed some a few months back at close range and did all the spinning of the car round and showing the detail. And last year they showed similiar ones.

But when they are on the track they look good but not as good as they where made out.

Dont get me wrong the cars look great but when in the game they just dont fit or something.

PGR4 had the cities and the lighting and the rain and weather effects that really brought cars to life. This looks more like a boring forza game and while that maybe what it is going for it isnt what appeals to me.

edit: looking back on some of the older shots I take the downgrade statement back. Some of the still screenshots have looked amazing due to a little bit of touching up but many companies release those even bizzare did it with pgr4. But I still feel there is something missing from the shots.

Best car models in a game to date? Phff.....j/k. That's true actually.

Having said that, it's hard to decide if either this or PGR4 looks better. They both do some amazing stuff.

Having said that, I get a doctor feeling from these shots. Doctored in the AA sense. How come the videos didn't look that damn clean? That looks like 16xAA to me, and I think it didn't even have any AA so what's the deal?

Wow, looks very sweet. Big fan of the series till the first game!

a bit offtopic: Damn, that new Impreza looks UGLY!!!!
Commented on 2007-11-08 08:56:22
no HUD at all -----> photomode with tons of antialiasing
Commented on 2007-11-08 09:20:32
Awesome. I can't wait to see new track, these look bland but it's tipical of this kind of circuits.
Commented on 2007-11-08 12:42:20
Well, the cars are certainly nice. As for the environments, well... let's just hope that this really is a work-in-progress demo.

The rendering of James May and Hamster is pretty damn good, though the hair is shocking.

have you ever been to a real GP track!? what are ppl expecting... more flowers or buildings that don't exist on the real track!?

its the best virtual suzuka ever!
Commented on 2007-11-08 15:35:47
My Opinion. You're right.
Can't understand the ppl yelling the tracks look shit....
When Polyphony will show up tracks like Grindelwald or something you'll see the quality.
beside, look at the texture quality of suzuka circuit. It's hilarous for a racing game!!!!

The cars look astonishing! And how cool is that? Top Gear for everyone who doesn't have the possibility to get BBC. Like this show so much (altho I don't like Clarkson for his Porsche hating), too bad I ain't got a PS 3. Alone for the show I'd recon to buy it. How is the resolution for the video stream?

looks good but after playing what is on the PSN i was very underwhelmed by this game.

I just love GT5 (Prologue) and can't wait to GT5 release :D

Yeah, but we've seen Prologue look much MUCH more jaggy than PGR4 (which looks really clean for the most part).

As for the track above being the best Suzuka out there, NO. FM2's looks considerably better.

There cars look truely amazing in these shots, too bad the gameplay videos don't look nearly as good.

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And it's surrounded by good-to-great FPS games. That's a healthy genre in my opinion. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Greatly deserving of it's accolades. It's both finely crafted and well designed. For me it's a no-brainer to call it GOTY. It will be around for many, many years. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Not that OW is perfect by any means.. but it's so much better than Call of Duty. I think it's so much better than Halo 5 too but I don't want to start any fights :P (1 Hour ago)
