GT5 Prologue promo video

GT5 Prologue promo video

One week after the game's release in Japan Polyphony Digital released this trailer of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. Looking good, but I don't think anyone would have expected anything else!

Ha, loved the norwegian flag. The game looks good, no doubt. the challenge is the driving. How would it be in the finished game.

awesomeness.

This is the only game atm I would consider getting a PS3 for.. If it plays (read: drives) at least just as good as Forza Motorsport 2.. And I would wait for the full game, not this extended demo Prologue BS for almost full price.. And they'd better not pull the same BS as MS with premium DLC..

racing sims are dead, this won't sell IMO

It looks good, so it will sell.

Really impressive...I dont really like driving games, but I enjoy GT and at least half of the reason is because of the great graphics.

I think Sony's crazy to charge $40 for the demo. For the same price I'd rather get a couple of COMPLETE, used games I haven't played yet. (Let's face it, there's not much new in Prologue outside of online.)

This is how Forza 2 should have looked, but i give PGR4 the nod.....just

Holy shit i didn't know they would charge that much for it! I had guessed 10-15$ and even that would be a ripoff.
Even the gt fanboys must relize that they are paying money for a demo, i wish sony would just stop waisting time on this bs and release the full game.

I got my import version last week.

I'm enjoying it quite a bit, I wouldn't call it exactly short either. I'm still in B class, trying to earn the 16 million I supposedly need to buy that Audi R8 so I can move on to A class and eventually S class.

IMO, it may have the best graphics of anything out there, as long as you focus on the cars. The trackside detail is pretty sparse, but the cars and the effects around the cars are second to nothing.

Looks so damn dark, hey anyone out there knows if you still have to take these damn Liciense test before you can drive? cause after all these years now it's real boring to take them over and over for each game.

So for this version i'm hoping they finaly drop it out of the game

No license tests in GT5P, but they still could be in (and I think probably will be in) the full GT5.

GT5 release + PS3 price drop to 299 = World Fucking domination BABY!
Commented on 2007-12-20 04:32:33
Why do people keep complaining about it being 40 dollars? You don't HAVE to buy it. Also, Prologue=/=demo. There was already a demo with GTHD and this even had a demo. Hell you guys are acting like a Prologue Gran Turismo is something new.

Edit-So they finally put an American release date(Euro still TBA apparently). 2/19

Because it's way to much and a disrespect to the true fans of the series.. Those people have no choice, they are to much fan to not buy this, and Sony abuses this by overcharging.. 40 buck for a racinggame that only has 5 track in it is to much, periode! 20-25 dollar/euro would have been a much fairer price for it imho..

Lots of talk about the presumably great new phyics in GT5.. To bad the reviewer doesn't compare them at all with the physics in Forza 2 (I think because that reviewer probably never played Forza 2).. I would really like to know how the 2 games compare when it comes to the driving simulation.. Also, how is the online MP racing in GT5 (is that in the Prologue?)? None of that aswell in this review unfortunatly..

My bro bought it (jap of course)

1- the car is very small
2- NO PHYSICS AT ALL....

Other than that its good

but i prefer forza2

"1- the car is very small"

Errr what?
Commented on 2007-12-21 07:11:23
The physics are actually pretty good in it, unlike the previous GT5 games, it seems there are little bumps in the road and stuff and you'll see the cars suspension doing things that you didn't in the past.

calling it a demo is like calling the first part of lord of the rings a trailer.

10 tracks (+10 reverse), 37 cars, 16 player online multiplayer, downloadable episodic content, GT-TV video content and plenty more hardly counts as a "demo" does it? did anyone see the last NFS demo? hardly the same thing.

oh, and to the idiot with the "2- NO PHYSICS AT ALL...." comment:

In terms of physics the game's Single Race mode will allow simulation selection between "Standard" or the more realistic "Professional" gameplay, this feature was not available in Gran Turismo HD Concept, Active Stability Management (ASM) de/activation and fully adjustable Traction Control System (TCS)[14]. All of these features are already available in the free playable demo.

Try to hit a car and see what happens

At least i tried it!!!!

All of those features do not make a good physics engine. In fact, even with a bad physics engine you can still claim to have ABS and traction control options in a videogame.

Just to point it out, this comment isn't meant to say GT5 has a bad physics engine. Just saying those features mean nothing as to how good or poor a physics engine can be in racing game.

Wait, so the GT5 I see in the Japanese sales charts is maybe only a 1/4 of a game? You know, this could have been the killer application for the PS3, but instead Sony is dragging its ass getting it on the market as is typical of every single Gran Turismo game which came before it. I have a library of good racing games for the 360 and I have never been forced to pay for a glorified demo of any of them. This is really disappointing. I was thinking of snagging a PS3 as well and this game was one of the reasons why.

I agree that the physics engine makes or breaks a racing game. Forza 2 got it right and it has seen a success because of it. I worry that beneath the graphics is the same old pinball GT games of the past.
