Dear Polyphony: Just Give Us GT5 Already

As most racing fans are aware, Gran Turismo 5 should launch some time this fall. Sony boss Peter Dille essentially guaranteed that it would be on store shelves before 2009 expired. We'll believe him for now.

It's officially only one delay, as the game never got any sort of release date until late last year, when they said it would launch in Japan in March 2010. But that doesn't mean the fans aren't a little miffed and I got news for ya, Polyphony: if you really did delay the game for the sake of possibly inputting 3D or PlayStation Move functionality, or you're considering another delay for the sake of adding such technology, "miffed" won't be the proper description. Pissed off will be far more accurate. Why? Because this is very simple: the hardcore racing aficionados; the target demographic for GT, really don't care. 3D is cool and all but the idea of making it compatible with Move is downright ridiculous and in the end, I can't think of a single solitary GT fan who would want to wait for the addition of these features.

They don't care. They really don't. I certainly don't. And besides, can't you add that stuff via patches at a later date? We've never really received a good explanation as to why the game had to be pushed from March to fall, but we've continually heard that "90% complete" quote for some time now. I know Yamauchi is a perfectionist and I respect that, and I have every confidence that GT will be the driving simulator we've all been waiting for, but I just have to make this clear in case Polyphony is under the delusion that their fans care about stuff like GPS features (which I can't see anyone with less than a million bucks in the bank using), 3D and Move. Now, I do like the idea of 3D. I'll be very interested to give it a try. But no matter how realistic GT might look, 3D still won't make it feel just like a real race and a real car.

And, oh yeah, I just want the damn game. We all do. If you have to delay it for the purpose of refining it and making it better, fine. But if it has anything whatsoever to do with the new technology, it's a colossal mistake.

Yah, I agree. While I'm normally for developers taking all the time they need to create a great game. I feel Polyphony could've made more people happy if they released something a bit less ambitious in breadth and saved some of the more ambitious extra content ideas for GT6. As a gamer who has followed the GT series for years, I would have no problem having paid two times for two quality GT games, rather than waiting a real long time for one real big game. It would also seem to me that it would make better marketing sense on the profitability end too. Complaining aside, I'll get the game whether it's 2010 or 2011.

Hm? believe him for saying the game will be out before 2009 is over? lol a little late =p

Also I just wish the game was released, I bet right now, nearly everyone would be satisfied with it, it's probably an amazing game that the only thing not finished are minuscule details that they want to be perfected, which is annoying the racers..

Why would they release it in March? they had too many big exclusives come out already (MAG, Heavy Rain, GoD3) I'm sure SONY is spacing out their exclusives so that they have something good coming out through out the year. Gives Polyphony time to further polish the game until SONY see's when would be the most profitable time to release it. I'm sure it's coming out for the Holidays. Think about it, what other exclusive do they currently have that would be ready by the Holidays? Maybe Resistence 3 but I can't think of anything else right now. Guess we'll see what else they have cooking at e3.

Ben,
I said basically, this exact same thing in the last GT5 thread....
(Except I was just a wee bit less tolerant & and just a slight smidgen more scathing in mine) LOL


"BUT", I was looking forward to it already having Move & 3D capabilities, since for the life of me, I can't figure what else they could have been doing all these extra months(especially since they already stated, "We can release this anytime", way, way, way back in the year 2009).

So exactly what have they been doing with all that extra time??????.....
Aging the game in Oak barrels using some specially aged secret charcoal-filtered paint-sealing fermentation distillates up in the moonshine stills hidden around the Kentucky Blue Grass Mountains???

Oh hell, it's got to be at least 100% proof already, so just bring the game before it's special vintage sours into vinegar.

Even Jim Bean & Johnny Walker are saying, "Enough is enough already"!!!!

all has to do with production. it is to our understanding that the game has been in the works since they scraped the HD Concept and developed a new engine (Or improved HD Concept Engine) Physics.

roughly more than 900 cars will be in the game. each car can take up to 5 people and over 50 man hours to get the job done. And they way the model each car is by taking Full 720 Degree angles pictures of each car.

They also had to get the WRC and NASCAR License. and the permission from the car manufacturers to feature the car in their game.

Last i check the release date was for japan and nothing was said about EU or NA.

the latest i've heard the KY said is that the game was 90% Complete.

Personally I agree with everything except the 3d. I'd rather have the move than the 3d, but with racing wheels as viable options I'd rather just go that route and have the game as soon as its done.

I think were on for a 2010 release as long as another racing game doesn't come out that has something Polyphony's racer doesn't have. The only reason GT5 didn't come out last year was because either Shift or Forza had a feature GT5 didn't have. I'm not trying to say anything bad about GT5. All I'm basically saying is I want to play GT5. If some other developer comes up with some new innovation in their game, I fear Polyphony will yet again delay the game because of it.

I hate it when people say stuff like this...

Seriously, as if you work at Polyphony
The reasons are beyond whatever any racing game has. it's more to do with the fact that they feel it's not complete (could be anything from the online infrastructure to the 1000+ cars or the 30+ tracks they're adding)

Why should GT5 even care about the features Forza has. As if any of Forza's features match the racing experience GT5 will give you?

If they tell me that they're adding Red Rock Valley Speedway to the game I'd wait a lifetime for them to add that racing track...

I'm serious. if there's one racing track I seriously miss from the GT franchise, it's that one.

I also don't mind the delay at all. But what I do mind is what Ben is saying here, what is the real reason they're delaying it? They should just let tell us.

And yes, 3D isn't necessary, and MOVE is even less necessary...

I just hope I can drive to the LUSH, sunny, and smoking racetracks in GT5 this Autumn*

PS: They better add all the Autumn Ring race tracks...love that track.

Ben, it should be Dear Sony, just let PD release their game.

Knowing Kaz, I'd bet anything that he wouldn't delay his game for a casual feature like 3D or PS Move. Just no way.

Like I mention before, this is just like the GTPSP scheme. I just know that Sony interuppted them during GT5's development and forced PD to make GTPSP to help with PSPGo's launch. It has to be especially when Kaz said in an interview that GT for the PSP will continue production once GT5 is over with. Obviously that's not the case! Who else is to blame?

I blame most of the fault to Sony if this game is to release in fall or later.

Well you said it Ben! Nobody who plays GT5 wants to wait so the game can have 3D and/or Move. There are legions of gamers who love GT and want to hook up their wheel and just play.

From what we've heard it doesn't have either of those things. Someone somewhere is just making excuses.

Your right Scarcrow I don't work for them and what I say is just pure speculation but I don't have too in orderr to have an opinion. Kaz stated last year right before Forza came out that he could release GT5 at any point. My opinion they were going to release last year until they seen that Forza turned out as good as it did. After Forza came out Kaz had to make GT5 better to make it exceed Forza in every single aspect. I really don't see why people so defensive when you ccompare GT5 to Forza let alone mention it in topic of discussion. The two games are very similar. I have read comments from people on this website comparing GeOW to Resistance and they muh more different than GT5 and Forza.

i really think there getting too carried away with this bells and whistles stuff.
all we expect and want from GT5 is 4 very simple things.
1 lots of cars and tracks? CHECK!
2 realistic physics? CHECK!
3 damage models? CHECK!
4 absolutely mouth watering graphics? CHECK!
GT5 has all that, and more and has so since the demo shown at E3 last year so what the hell is going on?
either damage models is taking them much longer than they expected or there working on some more bells and whistles no one wants.

thats one perfect way to say thank you to your fans, release the game than work on the 3D and move support and release it as DLC.
1 fans would be happy because they get the game sooner rather than later.
and 2 it gives PD a chance to charge a small fee for it maybe, but than that could backfire you know how tight a$$ed some people are these days.

This isnt about the game anymore, this is Sony trying to fit GT5 into their marketing schedule.

Sony are bringing out 3D TVs soon so GT5 is the flagship title that will help this happen.

Move is coming out soon. GT5 is helping that along to.

So, the game is probably finshed and ready to go but Sony wants to optimise it's potential to be a PS3 mover, a 3D TV mover and a Sony Move err mover...

*Second and final post. I promise.

Some things we have to note:

1. Sony is fully in charge of when GT5 is to release.

2. Sony is aware of the scale of GT's popularity and perhaps taking advantage of it, in a bad way. In a bad way as to release it in the holiday for sales boost, or to coincide with 3D/Move.

3. It was never clear why the delay took place.

4. If the game is to be 90% done in January (according to interview), a delay of 6 months just doesn't make sense. Also, official game cover was released to public in the same month.

5. The delay was sudden. Literally a day after the CES interview when Kaz said March release for Japan, the delay was announced.

I just don't get it. What in the world is going on with this game? Did PD saw/thought something as to quickly change their plans (see point 5), or was it Sony's plans?

If we're honest, it would make sense if Sony is a big part in all this. So, we can't keep on glaring at PD all the time.

Speak for yourself, GT5P is still quite fun, it offers the truest racing experience, no gimmicks no games. Real racing. Online is still fairly populated at peak times especially in the World server races.
Also if you know where to look on certain forums, you can find very high level(but very fun) organized racing. Some races are tuneless days where drivers drive factory set cars(not customization) others are full PP for that event.
GT5P was and is never boring, provided you're actually a fan of racing.

I really couldn't care less if that game came out or not? GT5 drifting demo absolutly blew eggs hard!!! I mean they have been pushing this game back over and over, to me it means they need to do a lot of improvment over it. They must not be ready to get humiliated again, if they keep stalling for time! I think it's because everything must be perfect like extremely perfect where "if the gas pedal is not slightly over to the left more than it already is, we are going to scrap 6 months of working on this Nissan GT-R" the main key point I think these guys should focus on is gameplay, not stupid minor stuff like that.

In the end the person who opens this game up won't care if that minor detail is there or not they just care if they are having fun or not. The game might look spectacular but in the end the guy will still play super mario 64 over this, simply it's more fun...

Actually, there are some minor stuff they probably don't care about like skidmarks. I think they know where their priorities are, to the extent where it's reasonable. Surely, the top two details they focus on is probably how the car looks and the physics. What more is there to gameplay in a racing game?

You say it like they don't care about gameplay or haven't really focus on it. To Kaz, I think it's about the experience, and that experience effects the gameplay (graphics + 60fps + 1080HD + up to 16 cars offline/online + Nascar + Rally + F1 + Possibly ground-breaking online features + so on..).

Surely they have put some thought on what matters, and beyond.

Yamauchi probably put the GPS feature in for his own personal use, seeing as how he's one of the few that is financially qualified to use it.

If they implement 3D, maybe they can also put in a backseat playing perspective. That way I can enjoy the complete car sickness effect.

Well said, Ben. I'd like to see this game 3D, but there's but I'm absolutely fine with them releasing a patch for it. I'm sure I won't have a 3D TV for at LEAST a year anyway, and that's assuming it's a trend that catches on. I just want to play the game that I was expecting to see ages ago.

Part of me doesn't mind the wait the other part says bring it on already! When they announce a release date I'm so pre ordering.

Ugh, another one of these? Did you miss my whole 'the cars alone will take roughly 28500-30000' coding DAYS post on the previous Move/3D article? It should also be noted, that Kaz has already stated Move and 3D will only be added if they think it has merit, which begs the question 'if they don't think so already, why would the Japanese release have been pushed back from March?'

I, for one, will say, please Polyphony Digital, please Kazunori Yamauchi, don't listen to the people who are overly anxious. Just continue to do what you do best, make amazing games. There are plenty of things for gamers to keep themselves occupied with for now, so it's not like there's a drought of gaming currently. The basic fact of the situation is, a good majority of those complaining and overly anxious about dev time, will be buying the game anyway. To say nothing of the core GT crowd, which is large in and of itself.

Btw Ben, this might be something you're interested in researching...I doubt I have the resources you do to look into it, but PD has already shown GT5P in 3D. So, it's pretty safe to assume that it's either finished already, or mostly done.

My guess? The delay was simply to allow for a worldwide launch in Oct-November, while giving PD more time to finish cars. I think the 950-1000 is really the biggest driving factor in time myself.

I don't think production issues is a big factor with the delay. If anything, it's a small factor. If a game is said to be release in March MULTIPLE times (by Sony rep and even Kaz himself) at the CES event and suddenly they delay it, there has to be more to it.

If you think about it, 950-1000 cars was pretty much already confirmed as well as the first official release date for Japan (they sounded confident too, about the March release), so surely the modeling for all those cars were probably on schedule.

Just my thoughts on this.

Production is always a big factor in Japan, isn't it? Otherwise PD would've been doing simultaneous WW releases already. Having to re-work everything in English has always proven to be at least a 6/mo endeavor. Well, at least that's how it's been advertised for quite some time.

seriously. to be honest, i may no longer buy this game. i loved gt4, and even played it on my old 60gb ps3 before it went toes-up. so i was extremely excited for gt5 for a long time. renting prologue kept my apatite wet for awhile. however, with the how long its been now, my desire for gt5 has all but dried up. to top that off, the release of that 370z @ indy demo actually made me want the game less. if the full version really drives like that, count me out. with the DS3 i could hardly get through 1 lap without spinning out. then i hooked up the old steering wheel and it was slightly better. but it felt like they had made the physics so realistic that it rendered the game un-drivable because it lacks the most important aspect of driving - the feel of what the car is doing under you. if its going to be so realistic then it seems you'll need a hydraulic racing-game chair to give you the feel of the cars movements so you can react properly

I think the demo you're referring to was restricted to pro physics. You'll have the option of pro or standard physics. So all us poor folk without the hydraulic chair thingy can start off in standard if we wish.

I really stopped caring. Why should I care about a product I won't see in the near future? Fall isn't near nor do I look forward to it. I'm not gonna waste my summer worrying about a frickin racing game when I can spend my precious time racing in real life!

They already made a grave mistake by delaying this game this long. Lying about the status of the game makes it even worse. The worst has to be the fact that we are now twiddling' our thumbs without a truthful explanation as to WHY we have to wait 5 years for this game.

I know it breaks a lot of peoples' hearts for me to say I don't care anymore whether I live to see this game or not. It all boils down to how a company is treating the fans. It's not a good habit to live out an endless batch of lies. It's not fair to those who anticipate it, purchase a PS3 for FAR HIGHER prices (assuming it would release one of those dozen times we were told it would) and find out they could've waited for a slim. In fact, at this point, they could've waited for a PS4!

To top it all off, by the time this game will end up in someones living room, the hype of the PS3 will probably be on a decline as far as I'm concerned. This game was meant to "wow" us graphically. I'm not saying the physics won't be a milestone, but all this polishing their polygons, shaders and textures will be zilch when it lands right in the middle of the "advanced" generation of PS3 graphics.

If this game was meant to turn heads graphically, Sony has done a good job of blowing some of that hype right outta the water. Before you boo on me on this, realize what I'm saying. The PS3 is being pushed close to what we can all agree on as it's limit. It's not a magical system. It has muscle, but it has a ceiling. Games are looking phenomenal. The better they look, the less impressive GT5 will look in return.

The PS3 has an abundant amount of incredible achievements on the table. Unfortunately, they aren't aware that what they may consider nothing more than a reason to turn in more buyers (GT5) has already done just that. Those of us who bought the console in hopes of getting our hands on this game deserve as much. Their financial planner needs to pull his head out his ass and realize they've stabbed quite a few loyal gamers square in the back.

Almost seems these guys are in for the S-E Tea Party with all this stupid jive!

Polphony could just patch 3d and move, geez. I think though that this is jumping to conclusions a bit.

I want this game so bad that I don't even want to buy it anymore because it is just taking forever to come out. Right now I am like "F*ck GT5", but I when it is released I will be like "Thank God for GT%" lol.

I've just found out why it's taking so long....

To add the greatest realism yet, Yamauchi has been secretly working hard on the Mother-in-law back-seat driver feature.

Anytime your speed reaches 32 & 1/8th MPH/KPH, she'll pop right up behind your right side, slap your arm & give your ear a one of her patented hysterically-strict tongue-lashings for the next 72 hours!

The GPS & 3D features will assist you in finding the most remote of all areas to dump her body.

And the Move feature will assist you in digging her a 6'X6' personal rest area.

Nothing more for me to say that I haven't already said on the subject.

When the game is released, I will be buying it, and so will nearly everyone else.

End of story.

They're shooting themselves in the foot.

By delaying the release, expextation is exponentially rising.

Satisfaction is unacheivable.

If naughty dog can release a game ofsuch immense proportions then surely polyphony could of already done so as well.?

Move is not needed
a simulator needs a steering wheel

I have no info about the GPS but if it is a tool to be used with a real car when driven at an auto-x or road course then upload the data to your ps3 to analize your times, g-force, braking points,etc... then that be great.
Poly said some about a track editor maybe the gps data can be used to recreate ower local tracks.

I rather have a hydrolic platform to mount a seat which can give the player more feedback of what the car is doing over 3D or move.

Other whise release the game now. We all getting old waiting for it.

Move/3D leave for a download update or the next gt game
