The rain effects look awesome, but why isn't the car wet on the inside(maybe it is, I just can't see it because of video quality) ?

And I guess the rain doesn't affect the driving(at least that's what it seems).

DJ, do you get to choose the weather for all of the tracks available in the build or is it just for preselected tracks?
Commented on 2010-09-17 05:05:31
Im impressed that they never showed the weather effects until so close to release.
Commented on 2010-09-17 05:08:06
ahah the car is too slow. With such cars the track should be very slippery otherwise it gets boring fast. They said weather effects and day/night cycle will be on few tracks last month ?

Lol the AI spun out

I'm no farmer but I can smell this manure a mile away.

Unfortunately U can't choose weather effects on specific tracks and the Eiger track is the only track with rain. Sorry! :(
Commented on 2010-09-17 07:01:54
hmmm I do not think that is correct DJ. There is also snow btw.
Commented on 2010-09-17 07:31:35
Why is rain slippery like ice? A AWD WRX is having problems going 40 kph in rain. GTFO. Not real at all.

Dang. I wonder if you can choose weather for all of the tracks in the final game.

I'm pretty sure he means in this demo.

As a total non fan of GT5 (will it ever come out?), i got to admit the rain in the cockpit view blew me away. That looks gooooooooooooood :)

It does affect the driving since it does affect the road surface. Here's what Kazunori said during the break-our session:

-Weather changes include temperature differences, air pressure changes, and humidity, affecting the surface conditions of the track dynamically.

-Weather conditions are randomized. Forecasts for your race will be available but may not be entirely accurate, just like the real world.

And of course, the choice of tires and the use of driving assists ie. Traction Control and Stability Control will make driving in wet/slippery road a little easier.

Rains nice, but WTF is the VW van's underbody? looks stupid that high and nothing holding the wheels on....
Commented on 2010-09-17 10:25:31

Looks and feels great from the cockpit view. However I don't get why developers continue to reward players for using exterior cams. I hope they include the option to lock camera positions for multiplayer races for a fair experience.
Commented on 2010-09-17 12:06:04
The VW video looks crazy!!! i love it

and btw

people you need to stop hating and accept that no racing game on the market looks and drives as good as GT5.

your act of down rating GT5 articles won't stop this game from being the best racing game ever made and won't stop it selling millions of copies.

go hate on something else, and not a game.

super impressive, reminds me of the good old days of colin mcrae before the only road type was dust and the only weather type was bone dry. amazing. love it when the rally car comes out of the tunnel and is blasted by rain.

just hope weather is avaliable in all tracks, or most tracks where it makes sense. if it's just a single track with rain and a single track with snow, it'll be pretty dissapointing, even if it does look beyond awesome.

Looks better than real life! Unfortunately my PoS3 recently died (again) so I can't play until they lower that shit to $200

If this wasn't on GT5 website i would think this is from a real photo scene.

Other racing devs need to work extremely hard to compete with GT5

Granturismo 5 raised the bar again.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (45 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (46 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (2 Hours ago)
