Looking “ver niccccce” as borat would say…
Stop it. Stop it now.
The last thing I need is this waved in my face. I think I’ll be taking that week off work as soon as this drops.

Threespeech, could you get some info on if this is what the ingame graphics will be? I dont want to be too negative as this is a great game but in the demo I have jaggies and thats on a Sony Bravid 32″ TV

Ugh I think I just gave birth looking at these pictures…

One of the “themes” that I miss from the original gran turismo is that it centered around taking old and “used” japanese sporty cars that many people found in their garages, tuning them up and racing them.
Now Gran turismos’ “theme” seems to center around World class cars that people dreamed where in their garages. Not that I’m complaining really, but I kind of miss the old “theme” because this is what I do in real life. I have an old japanese sports car that I take to track days.
Also, “memory Card battles” from the original are sorely missed by my fellow GT fans. But I suppose we are entering a new era of GT with online play now…

Looks stunning, really is going to raise the benchmark of graphics for this generation, if it looks this good stood still how good is it going to look moving?

Awesome looking game! Can’t wait 4 this
@6 - That was one of my favourite aspects as well, shopping on the ‘used’ market for something and then turning it into a Evo eater.
Comment by Dan — Feb 19, 2008 @ 5:16 pm
I wonder if there is a market for a Used Car Salesman sim.
Who says the old, used cars are not available in the full version of GT5? Excuse my memory but did they drop that in GT3 and 4?
Comment by Obli — Feb 19, 2008 @ 6:26 pm
…besides, look at the sixth pic down. Is that not an old Japanese car on the right (old Supra or something?)
Comment by Obli — Feb 19, 2008 @ 6:27 pm
@14 - No, that’s a Honda NSX.
I still insist on living as if it’s 1988, so I’d love to see things like a MKII Golf GTi or Mitsubishi Starion in there. And maybe an Isuzu Piazza Turbo and Subaru SVX…
Ah, a NSX - fair enough =)
An 80s downloadable car pack would be great, I agree. Would love to see some older cars in there. I think there is a chance of a MKII Golf GTi or a Starion. Unfortunately, as much as I’d love to see my car in there, I can’t imagine they’ll ever put a 1991 Audi 90 2.3 20v in there =P
Perhaps PD could release a standard / guide for modelling a GT5 compatible car and with their blessing, it could be put on the Store!
Comment by Obli — Feb 19, 2008 @ 7:12 pm
Hmm, NSX, production of which stopped in 2005
There is also an R34 skyline in those pics so old cars are obviously present. They’d be insane to drop them, they are a big part of GT

@SteviL: In post #3 your asking for a UK release date but you can pre-order GT5 Prologue from Amazon.co.uk The release date listed is March 28th, 2008
Comment by PaulJ — Feb 19, 2008 @ 8:17 pm
@4 - There is no ‘demo’ of this. Are you talking about GTHD? If so, yes there are jaggies, but that’s just an update of the old GT4 technology. GT5 has been completely re-made from the ground up. What you see here is what you get!
This looks amazing but i think i will just wait for the whole thing to come out
Comment by whoelse — Feb 19, 2008 @ 9:22 pm
This has even tickled my taste buds, and I hate GT. Does it move @ 60fps, or is that horribly optimistic?

There is to a demo of this. I have it as well It’s on the JP PSN store.
@20 rooee we are told GT supports 1080p @60fps
Comment by glitched — Feb 19, 2008 @ 10:05 pm
@21 the demo was removed before xmas when the full prologue was released, if you missed out, you better hope they made an english version for release here in a months or so time.
prologue runs at 1080p60 on my rig with no trouble.
The screens are ‘in-game’ but whether it looks *that* good for you is going to depend on your display (and whether they have ‘touched up’ the above pictures). If you have a top of the range native 1080P TV, then it should look the same. For me, I have a 20″ Samsung with a resolution of 1680 x 1050 which means all images are upscaled / downscaled to fit and I get jaggies galore.
Comment by Obli — Feb 19, 2008 @ 11:46 pm
that’s due to your own crappy display mate
Comment by mark — Feb 20, 2008 @ 4:36 am
I feel these screens are upscaled to draw us in like what they had to admit they did with the Killzone 2 screen shots.
Just don’t get your hopes up too high people.
Comment by Ton Capone — Feb 20, 2008 @ 5:26 am
Why the delay releasing it? Isn’t this the same game that’s been out in Japan since before Xmas?
Looks awesome though
Comment by Mister_G — Feb 20, 2008 @ 8:58 am
I got the Japanese demo a while ago. The in-game graphics are very close to those images, the difference being you’ll see more jaggies when you actually play it. The reason you those images look better is because they have been scaled from 1080 to 289 which will hide flaws.
Anyways, I’ll be getting the game on release. The demo played very well.

@mark (#26) - “thatâ€™s due to your own crappy display mate”.
I had established that my sxreen is not a good one in my post. I don’t believe any average non-1080P native display will show GT5 like the pictures above (without any jaggies). As my screen was cheap, and a monitor / TV hybrid, it is particularly bad at close distances.
Comment by Obli — Feb 20, 2008 @ 2:26 pm
I see that Ferrari, shaking that asp, shaking that asp, shaking that naturally aspirated engine.
@18 thats what Amazon say mate but if its not out till april in the US I doubt we will be getting it before them, hope im wrong !
Comment by SteviL — Feb 20, 2008 @ 4:54 pm
Even with the latest Sony bravia thats got 1080P the demo gave jaggies. Can’t they make use of anti aliasing?
Comment by anon — Feb 20, 2008 @ 5:45 pm
@33 It does use AA. 2xAA for 1080p and 4xAA for 720p.
Comment by cr8ck3r5 — Feb 20, 2008 @ 7:12 pm
Actually, we’re getting it three weeks BEFORE the American release… http://www.ps3fanboy.com/2008/02/20/gran-turismo-5-prologue-dated-for-europe/
