GT5 Prologue: 3 videos

GT5 Prologue: 3 videos

Sony released these three new videos of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. Two of them are the usual but as always very well done trailers with great music, and the last one is a bit more unusual since it's a teaser for the Making-Of blu-ray disc.

I saw the Prologue intro movie and it's nothing short of breathtaking. And yes, I think the Japanese are way more obsessive than westerners. I'd say for every 10 Japanese games that wow me, there's only one from America or Europe. And I'm not weeaboo.

the japanese seem to slack off when it comes to animations and physics, something westerners seem to push more and more. and tbh. there are far more western games that impress then japanese, mainly for those very reasons stated above. animation and physics go a long way to making a believable world. and japanese games tend to have the bare minimum of both. if at all. i mean, you only have to look at losy oddysee or even MGS4 to see animation IN GAMPLAY takes a back seat to everything else. its not detrimental to the overall experience, but it would improve things a lot if they where better.

The Japanese just tend to ignore certain aspects of games that they seem to randomly deem 'unnecessary' to improve.

Such as the squealing tires during turns in GT5. A Western developer would say 'oh now that's not right'. But to Japanese they get nostalgia out of that or something so they decide to keep it in.

YES, I just heard they are updating the Japanese version with the UK content! It's coming on Friday.

Thank you Sony.

Oh dear Jaggies are back, hope this isn't what the game looks like when I get it, It's the one thing that wound me up about PGR3.

I bought it today and I’m actually disappointed…

I played the Demo and therefore I knew the graphics and sounds weren’t going to be that great (I have a Toshiba 42X3030D running 1080p and GT5s graphics is IMO greatly overrated. The cars are great, no doubt, but the tracks are horrible IMO), what I mean is more basic stuff.
I never was in GT, actually I avoided GT altogether till now so I didn’t know.
Races seem to start always “on the fly” (a nice penalty in MP for the last placed player) and the online multiplayer mode seems to be a stupid matchmaking system…
That was all it needed to ruin most of the fun for me…

Hey should have looked at PGR2… that was an IMO perfect online mode.

Or am I doing something wrong?

The tuning of the cars, does that mean we can buy new engines etc and mod the cars, or is it just things like the downforce etc?

Ishigami, there's no reason to say "IMO" so many times. Don't worry, everyone here is opinionated and no one is offended.

I just came in this topic to tell you this, as I have no interest in racing games and probably never will.

I couldn't help but think of Bethesda when I read this. While it is mainly true of Japanese developers, can you imaging how much better Oblivion would have been if characters had more than three frames of animation for most things? Jumping only had two. Up and down again. Or is that only one?

not the best game in terms of animation i know, but then for every oblivion there are a hundred final fantasy's with far worse animation. and at least oblivion has physics. its like the japanese dont care. you just have to look at the repetative running animation of lost oddysee or final fantasy games to see that. they may have nice CGi/cut-scene animation, but beyond that they are pretty lifeless.
