GT5 Prologue vehicle deformation coming as early as Fall

50°
360w ago - Gran Turismo head Kazunori Yamauchi has officially confirmed vehicle damage for Gran Turismo 5 Prologue in an interview with IGN.

Yamuchi said vehicle damage could be included as a downloadable feature for GT5 Prologue as early as this Autumn.

To quote: In an interview with IGN earlier today, Yamauchi said that, "maybe by Fall we'll be able to implement it," before confirming that it would feature as a download for Prologue, which launched in the UK and across Europe last week.

Gran Turismo has long been famed for its refusal to include any vehicle deformation, despite heightening demands from its fan-base, and any inclusion of the feature would be a massive boon for the series.
 

The Big Issue: Kids will always play GTA

50°
361w ago - I can't speak for everyone, but I saw plenty of 18-rated movies when I was a kid. Robocop seems to be the one that everyone of my generation had to see, but you can probably put films like Predator, Terminator and Aliens in that bracket too.

I don't want to get into a discussion about whether those films scarred me (I had a few nightmares about Predator, but other than that I'm pretty well adjusted), but instead look at just how we, as kids, were able to watch those films. The BBFC did its job, giving them a legally enforceable 18 rating, our parents weren't in the dark about movies (they'd been around for years), yet everyone wanted to be Murphy in the playground.

Of course, this is all just a roundabout way of saying that kids will get hold of and play 18-rated games. The Byron Review, which has been pretty universally praised for being both fair and making a lot of sense, should result in all games receiving BBFC ratings (something only a small percentage receive right now) and suggests that parents need to be educated about video games. But just as a whole generation of kids from the 80s managed to watch high-profile violent movies of the time, modern kids will play violent video games. I'm not sure what the government can do about it.

From personal experience, retailers selling violent...
 

GT5 Prologue agreement missing vital information, can't play offline

50°
361w ago - To quote west79: Hi, I would like to inform everybody that the European PSN Store version of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue has some serious issues about the terms of service user agreement.

First of all, for playing you need to have your PSN Account connected to the network like Warhawk, yes, it means you can't play it offline.

In other news the game can't be shared between different accounts. It's linked only to the PSN user that bought the game itself, while the license doesn't inform the user about this before buying, unlike Warhawk as you can see in this picture I took.
 

Sony canned Facebook style platform for PSOne

100°
361w ago - Former Sony Entertainment President Chris Deering has said that a "secret Facebook-style web networking platform was being worked on behind-the-scenes by those responsible for launching PSOne."

The project was code named 'Moccasin 5' and would have allowed the PSone to run a "text-based community chat group with a special box called Net-Station that hooked up PCs to the TV."

He also said that they later worked on a PS2 concept called 'Central Station', which was planned to stream its own PlayStation TV channel back in 2002, but it didn't take off because of slow broadband uptake.

To quote: When asked what the biggest challenge of his career was, Deering said: "Getting Sony to believe that PlayStation could be a community online... We had a secret test program in Europe back in 1997 on PSOne, running a text-based community chat group with a special box called Net-Station that hooked up PCs to the TV.

"The project code name was 'Moccasin 5'. It operated across the major countries of Europe, and had quite a following, even from the US. "At Sony Europe, we later worked on a PS2 concept called 'Central Station', which was planned to stream its own PlayStation TV channel, back in 2002. But uptake in broadband took longer to reach mass market than we expected,...
 

Gran Turismo to feature vehicle deformation in near future

50°
361w ago - Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi has said in an interview that we can expect vehicle deformation "in the near future, very, very soon."

Apparently manufacturers weren't happy with the idea of vehicle deformation but now they're slowly coming around to it. It is unclear if deformation could make it in a GT 5 Prologue update or if it will appear in the full version of GT 5 which is apparently a year away.




To quote: "We've had a lot of discussions with the manufacturers and, although at the beginning they hated the idea of deformation, now they're slowly coming around to it.

"We've still got a few to convince, but we will. Expect deformation in the very near future: very, very soon," he added.
