Default The Playstation 2 Thread: Questions, tips, prices etc.

I know this topic wont have many hits, coz I've not heard many BHPians talk about this game, the only one I knew is not really seen anymore. Anyway. How many people around here own the PS2, and are interested in GranTurismo Games. Coz the GT4:Prologue (the demo sorta game of the full game to be released fall this year), is now available here *English Version*. And I just finished all the licence tests at the moment my score is 12 Golds, 10 Silvers and a buncha Bronze Medals.. 3 more cars to go. Then would open all the cars in the game for the arcade mode.
GT game fans, ask any question you would like to ask abt the game, I'll be more than GLAD to answer your questions.

ps - Other AutoGamers Please keep your Backsides out of this topic. Will wait three more days for Genuine GT Gamers/Fans, then will request the Moderators/Admins to delete this topic completely.. *

Something for the fans..
* * * * * * * *
Will post more pictures if anybody wants!

HAHAHAHA, You're lucky that I am not a Moderator/Admin.. Mate..
BTW, Which NFS are u talking about? Been there done all that.. and much more than your lazy @$$ (am swearing coz I already wrote to keep your backsides out off this topic. Anyway its not about fighting coz you cant compare both these games to each other. I like NFS Games, and I am leading as far as NFS:U (Bombay Gamers times are concerned, you think you're good enough just enroll yourself near ur place at any LAN Gaming Center for the World Cyber Games. The Finals are going to be in LA, you think you got a shot at at then dont speak much, okay?..
BTW, I've reviewed games for Virtual India (on Channel V back in 99. So I know what I am talking about, and spent much more times on gaming machines than even on a driving seat. So you NFSers (as far as comparing it with GT games are concernd) can keep away.. I mean just Shu away man. I love NFS and NFS:PU was the best NFS game I have played, but even GT1 kicks it away forget GT3. BTW, all you BestMotoring Fans, This is the game you've been looking for .. Its the closest thing to the real thing. VBH who has given voice for this game, said this shouldnt be mistaken as a game, it is a dictionary of Automobiles/Cars. A Real Driving Simulator.
So next time u speak budd, YOU PLAY FIRST!

More Pics Nikki.

Some more info :
NFSU2 Supporter/Compare : Brooke Burke (yeah she's hot, but thats it)
GT4 Supporters/Compares : Tiff Needel, Vicky Butler Henderson, Richard Hammond (and all the best motoring drivers).
So guess for yourself which is better. Though I'll buy both the moment they're out NFSU2 and GT4. Coz one is street racing and 1 is track racing.
ps - dont mean to start a flame war or anything, its just u dont seem to know what to compare to what.. so i thought i'll clear ur doubts, actually project gotham racing 2 for xbox is the only real competetor to gt games and its got enzo and many other car licences but the fact is its already shutdown. Coz of lack of units (games) sold.

One hardcore "Best Motoring" fan coming up.......

Well, i can't really coment on realism unless i play this game, but graphic wise, this blows everything away dude.

When i first saw these pics i thought they were photographs!!!!!! Too good......

I hope the cars handle like the real ones, that is most important.

PS: Doesn't the Evo pic with the huge tyre thing in the background remind you of the Tsukuba track in Japan where "Best M" race their cars?

Regards...

If you have some time, you should Check this link out.. . Its 14 page long article about the GT4 that'll be released in november. Just go thru it 1s atleast. Its worth reading. And as far as realism is concernd these guys make F1 Simulators for FIA. So Bahrain and Shaghai were first played on Polyphony Digitals (makers of GranTurismos) Simulators by all current F1 drivers. So you can imagine how close to realism it is. And the Nurburgring Nordschliefe track in this game is so real that real LeMan drivers practice on it b4 their Race. (errmmm.. no no I am not a Sony or a Polyphony Digital Salesman! )

By the way ShanMan, that is the Tsukuba Circuit. All the Circuits in this demo are real locations. Fuji Raceway, Tsukuba Circuit, NewYork Times Square, Cita de Aria (mind blowing modeling of this amazing Italian Town on a hill) and Grand Canyon Rally circuit.
And yes after finishing a race while you are watching the replay you will feel as if you are watching a BestMotoring Video. But for an average gamer it is a pain in the back side, coz if you lose the racing line or dont kiss the apex while cornering.. you either on the gravel or touch the barriers which causes a 10 second penalty.. which could be annoying as far as gaming is concerend!
Yeah Graphics are MindBlowing.! And this is just the 50% of the real game!

And if you want to see the attention to detailing : check out the brake discs on this Ford GT..



Cool? or HHoTT?

Well actually they havent released an official list yet, these are probably going to make it in the game and a few more. An Unofficial source has said there'd be probably 700+ Cars from Different Eras. So its not just a Racing Game, its a Car Encyclopedia.
Though it has been confirmed that Ferraris and Porsches wont be in GT4 but will probably be in GT5 for PS3 (almost confirmed).
Well I should mention Porsches have been in almost all GranTurismos in the form of RUF and a 360 was there in the form of Tommy Kiarra (i think). And I am sure by the time the game releases they'll add almost all BMWs and Mercs available at the moment.

I will be getting GT4 : BMW Series 1 Virtual Drive (Demo Game available at BMW Dealers in UK). It only has the 1 Series and 3 tracks available (Nurb'Ring, NYC and Costa di Amalfi (Capri). )
Will definetly try to put in a short review as soon as I get my HANDS ON it.. Its developed on the latest GT4 Code. Also will try to get ScreenShots if possible.
