If all cars have cockpit view, game will be purchased on release, without them, no purchase at all.

  • Thank you storm. You make me a very happy person. So again, I will be getting this game on release date. I knew there was no way 800 cars would not have interiors and them using the models from GT4 is fine cause a car will always look the same but GT5 just makes them look super pretty.
  • If that 800+ cars not having interior views is actually true, i’m passing on this game. That is just ridiculous and makes me not want to purchase it. So it might be a pass from me now.

    GT4 looked better than Forza, and premium cars are not possible on the 360.

    This is a non-issue.

    Good for hits though….

  • Starish

    this article is such a joke when you know about racing, firstly Le mans cars have light stickers just like nascar you idiot, secondly the car has GT4 because it was a GT4 advertising car at the time just like how the others have playstation 2.

  • zevehcj

    This is ancient news. (I’m not trying to sound like a jerk) Ever heard of GT premium and GT classic?? That was shown a long time ago when GTHD was first revealed. Years before GT5 was announced.

  • TRF

    Not a big deal, although it’s odd that PD spends all this time working on the finer details of cars instead of designing them from scratch.

  • Afreelunch

    Starish, you would do well to learn more about racing yourself. Le Mans cars DO have working headlights, and the color of their headlights are used as a way of identifying vehicle class during night time competitions. You will notice the le mans cars in the video above using headlights in-game, though I think they are more complex than just “decals,” they are just not FULLY modeled like the premium versions. Also, the writer acknowledged that the GT4 car was a replica of a real-world vehicle, he’s basically just saying it’s ironic.

    Wow guys — Relax a bit, lol. Not everything is always going to be over-the-top amazing. Sometimes shit happens and things don’t blow you away. Big deal. Scaled up vehicles aren’t going to change the fact that Gran Turismo 5 is still going to be a great racer. Gameplay and mechanics always come before visual prowess. So long as those work, it should be gravy.

  • Dustin

    Considering how good the cars looked in GT4, I don’t really care :) Judging from the screenshot, you had to enlarge the image to see the jaggies and low-res sponsors…considering the power of the PS3, and the upscaling PD has done, I don’t think it will matter when the game is in motion at 60 fps ;)

  • mprashanth911

    So whats wrong if they are just HD upgrades huh?
    As long as they look clean on a HDTV i dont care.And with 200premium cars to choose,i doubt if i would even think of using these 800standard cars.i will just stick with the uber cool premium segment!

    Long Live Polyphony digital and Mr Kazunouri Yamauchi San!

  • Dustin fan

    Hey dustin, comments like those always make remind me about the power of the PS3! So what, upscaling some and premium others? DUDE GRAN TURISMO PS3! MY FIRST PLAYSTATION 1 GAME!!! AND IM ONLY !6!!!

  • Joe

    the cars in GT4 looked good for a PS2 game. they dont, however, look good for a PS3 game.

    just look at all the jagged lines from low-polygon count. look at how the door seams/panel seams are merely black lines drawn on the texture of the car instead of actual seams between the panels. also, the wheel designs on GT4 cars were just sprites, no 3d spokes etc.

    Forza 3 has 400+ cars, each painstakingly modelled with individual panels/headlights/wheels/interiors/etc. they look MUCH better than anything GT4 had to offer, and anyone saying otherwise is a complete and utter fanboy.

  • Articulator

    This article is pure speculation.

    You wanna know why that car says GT4 on it, it’s because they really made a real life version of it that says GT4 on the side. They don’t need to change the text to GT5 just because of these speculations.

    The fact that GT5 uses a totally new game engine already proves that this is purely false. How can they put models from GT4 to GT5 if it runs on different engines?

    Now the “Upscaling” thing, do you guys think a developer will throw away all of their previous work just to make a new game? They will most likely just enhance and improve what is already there.

    The GT5 to Forza comparisons are bs honestly, it’s not like Turn 10 throws away all of their work just to start on their next iteration. It shouldn’t be a crime to do this at all.

  • Bob

    Don’t say “over 1000″ cars. It’s “over 200″… I’m sure it’ll be a good game but the 1000 cars thing is just pure bullshit. I knew from the moment they said that number that there’d be some catch, be it DLC or something else, but this is just beyond lame.

  • The Dean

    I’m laughing at how much you guys are blowing this out of proportion and being ridiculous. Did any of you even notice any of this stuff in the trailers? No, you didn’t. Because within the trailers everything looks ridiculously good — do you know why? BECAUSE IT’S IN MOTION. Lol.

    How many of you plan on playing this game in motion? Oh — All of you? Who would have thought!

  • ErickRN

    Of what I’ve heard all the cars have cockpit views, just that the premium cars have more detail. They even said it on one of the interviews.

  • ErickRN

    What it means with interiors is inside of the hood like the engine details. Standard cars won’t have that since the hood won’t fall since they don’t have deformable exteriors, but they will still have cockpits not as much detail as the premium though. It was clarified in a interview with GT staff on e3.

  • Yusuf

    As long as the Premium cars don’t include Skylines and random Nike cars then I’m fine.

  • SonyJunkie

    If all cars have cockpit view, game will be purchased on release, without them, no purchase at all.

  • zevehcj

    Only premium cars have cockpit view. Standard cars don’t have cockpit view. What is so hard to understand??? Premium cars were made from scratch. Every single part of a premium car is modeled and detailed( interiors, seats, underneath the car, engine bay, suspension, individual lights, bolts, cup holders etc.). Standard cars are not modeled the same. Standard cars don’t have cockpit view.

  • lol

    starish: use your brain please, 24 hours Le Mans race.. day-night with light stickers they will crash at first curve…

  • Patrick Steen

    @Starish – The texture quality and polygon count is quite significantly lower than the premium cars regardless of your comments about one of the images. Plus, I mentioned it was based on a real-world car.

    @zevehcj – Yes – GTHD was the concept of GT4 being in HD, using GT4 models. GTHD was cancelled and this has only just been shown for GT5.

    @ErickRN – It is Eurogamer that states there won’t be interiors for cockpit view on standard cars. Previous statements have been hazy, but I’d certainly be interested in seeing the interview you reference.

    @Articulator- Naturally it’s “speculation”, but it’s speculation based on research, looking at the facts, and comparing footage. We’ve presented that evidence for you – most clearly in the comparison between GT5 and GT4. PD created high-quality models for GT4 and then put them in the PS2 engine. These models (created on PC) have now been converted for the PS3.

    @Bob – There are over 800 standard cars, over 200 premium cars – over 1000 total.

    And naturally guys, it’s disappointing. But it’s entirely expected – the quality of the premium cars couldn’t possibly be matched for all vehicles in the game.

  • halfdeaf

    This game will look awesome no matter if they upscale from GT4 ot not. They will run in the GT5 engine and I cant believe that those standard cars wont have cockpit view, that’s probably a misunderstanding as someone pointed out.

    If I remember correctly, around last years E3 Yamauchi stated that each individual car model took a month to finish by each team on the project. We can assume that those models were the premium cars and if they modeled all 1000 cars that way imagine the enormous manpower needed to finish them all.

  • zevehcj

    @Patrick Steen
    Disappointing?? I’m not disappointed one bit. 200 plus “premium” cars is more than enough. Both GT1 and GT3 had less than 190 cars. Every first GT on the latest playstation always has less cars(for obvious reasons). Also, GT5 is feature packed. New driving physics, damage, day/night transitions, two photo modes, 32 player lobbies, 16 player online races, private track days etc. Plus yesterday track editor, weather, go karts and stunt arena was mentioned as new features(still not confirmed). GT5 looks absolutely amazing.

  • Storm

    This still has not been confirmed by Sony yet so until they confirm or deny it I will wait.

    Confirmed all cars WILL have a interior. The Premium cars are just more detailed.

  • SonyJunkie

    Thank you storm. You make me a very happy person. So again, I will be getting this game on release date. I knew there was no way 800 cars would not have interiors and them using the models from GT4 is fine cause a car will always look the same but GT5 just makes them look super pretty.

  • Hoepker

    I love the GT series as much as much as the next person, but I wish they would not have another oz. of info until the game comes out, because no matter how much you complain about something it’s not going to be implemented or removed before Nov. 2.

  • halfdeaf

    @Storm thanks for confirming my suspicions, I knew there was no way that cock-pit view was out for 800 cars.
    @Hoepker Off course nothing will change from now on but you can bet your ass we will only hear and see more and more of GT5 until November and the hype machine is just starting to roll.

  • jubjub5721

    They are taking this long to make it and cant make new car models….

  • Storm

    Apparently there is still one key feature that has not been released yet.

  • Joe

    @SonyJunkie: “using the models from GT4 is fine cause a car will always look the same ”

    lol

    using that logic, why dont they just use the models for cars from the original Gran Turismo? lol. they need to redo them to add more polygons and as such more detail. the more polygons there are the more rounded and realistic the cars lines can appear.
