GT5P: Christmas video

GT5P: Christmas video

Polyphony Digital certainly knows how to celebrate Christmas with this very kitsch video available in Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. Thanks to DjMizuhara for the upload.

I'm more excited about the free xmas-themed Folklore add on, but this is good too

It's fun how you can spot santa walking on a roof in any of the trailers. You have trailers for Japan, America/Europe and Germany. In every one there's a different car and different spot where santa is :P.

These may actually be real time once the Dec. 25th update is released. However, they're not that technically impressive. If you play GT5P, you get scenes like this all the time, minus the people. The backgrounds are mostly simple geometry with 'photoreal' textures (because they are photos). Either way I have no doubt the PS3 could render this.

For people who imported GT5P, they're going to add online MP, time trials, and some other things.

Yes, but I'm not sure if you'll have to create a Japanese PSN account (free), or if the game will auto update when you load it.

those light poles look really low quality , the car looks ok.

Even though I do not own a PS3, it was thoughtful of PD to release something like this. Not many companies take the time to thank people and give them any sort of holiday greeting. Props to them!

I wish Microsoft would release a nice holiday rolling screen saver for the 360 to play at Christmas parties and the such.

Update's up now. Personally I haven't gotten a online race to work yet (could be my router), but I have done a few 1st place time trials.

Won't see? IMO, pgr4 looked way better than that (looking at the buildings and trees). Though I do like the video, nice xmas theme

After seeing that I'm not so hot for GT5 anymore, especially the Prologue.. The most important thing why is it's bassicly GT4 with HD graphics, the game itself hardly changed (read: improved) at all.. It's still AI cars on rails not aware of you being there, who you can use as bumpercars to take corners etc.. Also no damage, no customization, and still no online 'yet'.. The lighting and cars in GT5 might look a bit better then in Forza 2, but as a serious racegame fan I take MS's racer over GT5:Prologue anyday.. PD has great legacy, but their are dropping the ball now, competition from MS is showing GT's weaknesses now and they need to address them..

Seriously, if the Prologue is more the 20 euro overhere I would never buy it.. Wait until the full game comes out and hope that's a lot better with updated gameplay and features etc.. Until then you better off playing Forza 2 if you're a serious racegame fan (that only plays on consoles)..
