GT5 Prologue TV Ad

Sony released this high definition version of the TV Ad currently running on Japanese TV channels for next week's release of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. Looking good, as always.

first half was total CGI then changed to real time.

meh...pretty lame advert

whats the differance between prologue, and gt5 anyway?

btw how can you tell the first halfs CGI?
it looked just like ingame to me
so i suppose thats a bit flattering

EDIT, actually...anyone think the first half is actually real life?

much too dark to appreciate ... a pity!

Prologue = less content (far less courses and cars ) and modes , but earlier available and cheaper than the full game

so it's something like a demo you have to buy .. well , might not be fair to call it this , for even with drastically less content it still has as much as usual racing games have

2/3 of CGI and 1/3 gameplay + GTP logo all over = pointless

plаystation 3 voices, best part of ad

i think the first bit is real life, and i think thats the point. its trying to make the comparison, considering the cars looks as close to photoreal as a car game has come, then they may as well flaunt that feature, and thats what they do, hence the blatant comparison cross swipe transition from real to in-game.

i LOVE top gear its my fave tv show EVER
it might be the reason i finally buy a ps3
hey im wondering, you know it will have top gear episodes to download, well does anyone know if they are free, and more importantly are they available in HD? ive had my HD tv for a few months now and ive still never seen real life footage on it lol, only 360. i dont have an HD source to watch hddvds/bluray

That's pretty fucking weird. I was just listening to some of the orchestral tracks from Evangelion before pausing one to view this ad... And all I have to say is that style of music does NOT work for everything! They could've done better

The forest scene is live footage of a car on a forest track. Why they went so dark was to create just this sort of confusion and get the fanboys screaming "its all ingame!"

I love top gear but I'm wondering why they went for this semi-sim game and why british tax/tv-license payer money is used to promote Sony. Oh well.

Will probably get the full game from a bargain bin just to check out the top gear stuff.

Hi! Can someone tell me the name of that music? And the remix version... :p Thanx's in advance!
Commented on 2007-12-08 16:43:19
i agree joergen

well personally i would like the top gear test track on forza
i 'trust' forza a hell of a lot more then GT, you know that the car you choose in forza is going to be like the real thing, and they all handle noticably differant to each other which is great. then you modify a part of it and it handle and sounds differantly again. also if it were on forza, it would save me having to buy a ps3 :P

About the game

What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite It's performance related. Also, people underestimate the point of correct calibration. Having the 3d just off slightly for your eyes can cause bad eye strain, thus leading to nausea. (50 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I think motion sickness can be alleviated in future to the point where it won't be that much of a deal breaker. I noticed playing on Pro is a hell of a lot more comfortable than the standard PS4. (51 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite And that's entirely possible. I can imagine RE8 being that way. Having to physically aim down iron sights to get a headshot on a zom would be immense, but scary as fuck. (53 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite As good as RE7 was in VR, it could have been even better if they had a control scheme for it that allowed for free hand movement interaction. (54 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Capcom have since said they are setting up a team to focus more on VR stuff, which is promising. (54 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i'd love for the game to have a combat system as deep as DMC3 or even GOW. with a traversal system that actually uses some skill to land jumps and move around. (55 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Sdarts: i did. i didn't like it. traversal become even more tedious having to grapple gun everywhere due to wide streets and combat still had dudes taking turns to kill you. (56 minutes ago)
