Gran Turismo 5 Screenshots: Greater Than, or Equal to, Reality

By Nick Breckon, Oct 12, 2009 1:20pm PDT "'Better than reality' -- yeah, that's one way of putting it," said Gran Turismo 5 creator Kazunori Yamauchi in describing his game during a recent interview. "We seldom have the opportunity to see what we consider 'reality' under the best and most aesthetically pleasing conditions."

Who knew that Gran Turismo would take a step forward not only in graphics, but in the philosophical debate over reality itself? Ponder the nature of existence, young Sartres, while gazing upon the following brand-new video game screenshots.

  • Wipeout HD had a screenshot feature where you can pause the game during a replay and move the camera around, mess with the colors and dof, motion blur, over-saturation, etc. I'm guessing these were "post processed" in a similar fashion.

    That's all well and good as far as cool screenshots go, and essential when promoting a game (yes, lying is a big part of promoting), but when creating a 'simulator' they better have more than good (great) graphics. Although I'm not really sure why I'm saying this because I play on a PC, where the image isn't a jagged mess.

  • I think they released a nerve agent into the air-conditioning at PD.

    That fanboy article is tripe, "With Forza 3 Motorsport reviews out today, we felt it was only fair to give Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of its main competitor Gran Turismo 5, a chance to talk about his game and he didn’t hold back."

    Stop whoring out to PD and trying to boost visitors now gamer. PD need to deliver something for them to be even worth talking to in the first place. 5 years to get GT on the PSP and now GT5 is allegedly in the first half of '10.

    My PS3 is waiting for some GT love and the best they can do is Prologue and bullsh!t "interviews".
