GT 5 demo videos

GT 5 demo videos

Tomorrow everyone will be able to download the Gran Turismo 5 "demo" that is supposed to promote the launch of the GT Academy 2010. We got a chance to get it in advance so here is a first video showing a replay of the Nissan 370z Tuned. Another replay video will be up today showing the cockpit view - which has gotten a bit more dynamic you will see - but you will have to wait until tomorrow to see our exclusive 60 fps gameplay videos. The videos have been captured in manual mode and using the Fanatec 911 wheel. Enjoy!
Update 3: Last 60 fps gameplay video added with the tuned Nissan 350z.

I can't say I'm very excited for this demo. I WAS, but this is a pretty boring track to experience the new physics engine. I was really excited about trying it out to see if they've beaten the 'plastic toy car' physics of the previous GT's. This looks nice, but it's not nearly as 'beyond Forza' as I was expecting. I have very high hopes for the final game, but this demo doesn't look as fun or nice as the demo we've had up for the past 2+ years.

Its not a demo from GT5, Read this, GTplanet: "With that said, someone with access to the demo also received an email from Sony that wanted to emphasize this is not a demo of Gran Turismo 5, and is only being released for GT Academy. Polyphony Digital has also posted a new press release, clearly stating the demo was "specifically designed for this competition to showcase the realism of the brand-new physics engine" and nothing more. "

ya but as the guy above said to showcase the physics they really cud have picked a better track

Ok but:

The track and the car will be included in GT5.
The physics engine is GT5's.

So they can say pretty much all they want, it's still a demo of the game somehow, no matter what's still missing. It's too easy to say it has nothing to do with GT5, implying that the game will be so much better. Either they release something they think is worth showing and they don't look for excuses claiming it's not the real thing or they don't release anything.

Sure, GT5 will also feature car damage and probably tons of other stuff but publishers keep saying that what is shown in demos may be perfected in the final game. For once, we can say it's true. :p

Thanks for the great video quality. Looking forward to the demo just to test the progression in the physics and how much more FFB (both details and power) there will be with the G25. Prologue was decent although there's a room for improvement.

As to whether it's a demo or not: it depends on the individual- if you like racing against other cars, then this isn't a demo for you. If you have a decent FFB wheel or are pretty good at driving in Pro mode using DS3 (or -shudder- a sixaxis), then you might want to try out the new physics (but no offense wheel is the real deal).

When you start the demo up it says it's a demo for GT5, it makes that very clear. The image of this is in the GT5 thread on the forums.

The reflections used to impress me much more (GT5p), now seems so much old fare. In game cockpict looks ace, still a good notch above turn 10's attempt with their individual cockpick/exterior that they don't even use in replays.

I know that these real world tracks are boring and look bad compared to ficticious ones, but look is so sterile and mono textured. Even still the king of graphics, PD acheive that more by the use og a better replay system and cinematic effect, than real evolution of engine, that i give props to turn 10 for closing the gap. AAA games allaround.

So how many demo's are there for this game? Seriously...

So are you going to believe GTPlanet or a message from the demo itself???

@ Driftwood: Well said and totally agree!!

OK it's nice enough looking ( replay especially ) but I'm left seriously underwhelmed by this...it is a demo but really, how long has this been in the making, and to echo other comments but couldn't they have given a more interesting track?

To coin a phrase.....meh....
Commented on 2009-12-17 00:07:36
oh man, all the ps3 fanboys have been crying over this for the past 2 days.. pleading with everybody that "sony insists" it's not a true representation of the final game's visuals. Repeatedly pointing out that "it's only 220mb" - how big the expect a file with one track and one car to be i don't know.

Obviously the final game's going to look better when on the more imaginative tracks, will it look as nice during gameplay as it does during the replay modes? no... no racing games do.

I gotta admit i find it amusing though that those all too happy to paste poor quality screen shots of forza 3 are now defending till the bitter end the poor quality screens that acompanied this "demo"

I'm disappointed in the look of the trees as they look like 2d sprites, otherwise it looks pretty dam good especially how the cars move in the replay bouncing up and down with the body swaying side to side.

"Another replay video will be up today showing the cockpit view - which has gotten a bit more dynamic you will see -"

how come, could you please elaborate?

The squealing tire simulator!
Commented on 2009-12-17 02:02:23
*Awesome* replays. Also Gamersyde, why release a replay video of cockpit view instead of actual gameplay in cockpit view?

Also, demo # 20 and the crappy tire sound still there.
Commented on 2009-12-17 02:21:50
Pretty dissapointing for a Game that has been in development forever and whose main hyping point has been visuals.
Commented on 2009-12-17 02:34:51
hahah the game comes out in 3 freaking months and they release a totally barebones demo that doesn't even have any AI to race with. Pathetic
Commented on 2009-12-17 02:44:15
TIme for a rant.

I guess even Gamersyde is now officially infested with the fanboy cancer. "Yay! Time to put our Xbox-branded blindfolds on and talk some shit! Bashing GT5 is okay now, just look at these bland graphics! Everybody knows that tires make no sound at all! Even though Sony said this doesn't represent the final game, we don't care! We judge an entire game by a non-representative demo! Without having it played ourselves, of course! And also, let's try to make a pathetic attempt at being funny by saying there have been 20 GT5 demos so far!"

I know what you guys wanna say now, I'm acting like the perfect example of an overly defensive PS3 fanboy... but I'm not pleased with the way PD is handling this as well. I also wish that PD would have given us a real demo that represents some kind of a final build. To be honest, I think the graphics don't look up to date at all, while it would have been very nice to see first-hand how good GT5 will look when it's released. That's obviously not the case and a good reason to be upset as a Gran Turismo fan. But the way YOU react to this, makes me think that you are just happy to have a reason to talk shit about GT5.

before it became "gamersyde" it was xboxsyde. So yea the site definitely has a loyal Xbox fanbase but still GT5 doesn't impress and I am neutral :P
Commented on 2009-12-17 03:07:09
That rant wasn't directed at you, Doom_Bringer. Your opinion on this demo is the same as mine, although you are obviously amused by this, unlike me.

you're only "neutral" because you're a pc fanboy though lol
Commented on 2009-12-17 03:49:18
Oh wow, that looks awful, why would they make such a poor attempt at a demo, even if it isn't an 'official' demo of GT5... I still have high hopes for the final real thing... when they stop delaying, they just better add weather effects, I don't care if they have to delay it again

What track is this supposed to be? I recognize the layout but it doesn't look much like the track I'm thinking of (no elevation changes).
