Xav de Matos posted a new article, Gran Turismo 5 2.02 patch and 'Car Pack 2' DLC available next week.
Sony Computer Entertainment has released details on the second DLC pack for Gran Turismo 5, along with new features and tweaks coming in a new update for the game next week.
Can't believe it's been over a year since this game came out. I was SO let down. :(
What is the problem seems like a decent representation of the series. I know this title gets a ton of hate but sure why?
The main reasons are these (and most of them boil down to "it's not Forza"):
- Long load times (the 2.00 patch starts up the track map early, but it still takes the same amount of time to load the cars)
- "Standard cars" are just ported from GT4 (the 2.00 patch allows for a true in-car view, though since there's no interior, it's a silhouette of the model with the standard GT4 cluster; however, I like it better because the perspective is in-car)
- No true damage model; it's just slight exterior deformation and scratch decals
- GT Mode AI is unforgiving, so you have to either out-power the cars, or never ever EVER mess up a turn, making one-make races very difficult
- No rewind
- Unintuitive menu
- No guides on how to upgrade cars, aside from the manual (basically, "waah, no easy upgrade button")
"Ai is unforgiviging"
yes but at least it isn't like forza and they don't actively try to spin you out.
i hope your kidding....
"no easy upgrade button"
This game is definitely not for you....
I'm pretty sure mcpstoner was referring to why "the haters hate"... not himself, he seems to lvoe the game.
The free car is going to be the "Toyota 86 '13". It won't (or at least technically shouldn't) be called "FT-86" in the game, because it's a production model, and not a concept (the "FT..." designator stands for "Future Toyota").
GT5 shipped with these prior incarnations of what became the Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ / Scion FR-S:
"Toyota FT-86 Concept '09" (from the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show)
"Toyota FT-86 G SPORTS Concept '10" (shown at the 2010 Tokyo Auto Salon).
Polyphony released a promo video of the Toyota 86 that gtplanet posted back on November 30th: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ju7RVw-IRO4
Also, SCE USA producer Taku Imasaki mentioned a data logger that was being worked on between Polyphony and Toyota: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIVWz1Kl_Oc#t=3m21s (there's a link in that video to testing out the data logger on Fuji Speedway).
The FT-86 Concept in GT5 will be faster and lighter, but the Toyota 86 will be representative of the stats of the production prototype; I imagine that Polyphony was able to work with Toyota pretty closely in the past few months to model the production prototype. Seeing the car stats in the game may make some FT-86 nerds heads explode, as the final production weight hasn't been nailed down (it's pegged at "somewhere between 2700 and 2800 pounds" right now).

Just to dork out a little more on this, I'm hoping that Toyota let Polyphony directly sample the in-cabin and exhaust engine sounds of the Toyota 86. For the FT-86 concept, they carried over the engine sounds from the "Subaru IMPREZA WRX STI spec C Type RA '05", which does not sound like the real-life FT-86 Nurburgring prototype, or the 86 / GT86 / FR-S production prototype at Sodegaura. For an idea of what it sounds like, here's Ken Gushi drifting the FR-S at Sodegaura: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imLi9V5lomA#t=30s
When Polyphony samples car sounds directly, it sounds brilliant. The sound of the Lexus LFA in GT5 is almost perfectly matched to the sound observed in videos. The LFA in Forza 4 sounds like a generic V10.
Nice posts... very informative. I had not read about the 86 for some time now. Thanks for peaking my interest again.
Man, that is a generic name for a DLC pack.
