OT: Playing at being the Stig

(Sourced from Pistonheads)

Finally, the opportunity has arisen for all of us to pretend to be the Stig, thanks to the caring sharing types at Polyphony Digital.

For those who donít know, Polyphony is the subsidiary of Sony responsible for creating the finest racing game of all time, Gran Turismo.

In the latest iteration, version number five of the many million selling game, you will be able to drive the infamous Top Gear test track.

However, due to the complexity of digitising the 900 or so cars and plethora of tracks in minute detail, the full version of the game isnít due for launch until December 13th 2008.

There will be a prologue version out early next year, with a few cars and tracks to drive, however, the TG track wonít be included in this version.

GT5 will also include Top Gear TV, allowing users to download 40 classic episodes of the show, while the game itself will be available in download and blue ray formats when the full version is released.

That is downright amazing. Top Gear TV? Gran Turismo is an amazing franchise.

What it's basically saying is there will be a slimmed-down version available early next year. It will only feature some of the cars and tracks, but will be representative of game play/graphics quality.

The full game with all the 900 cars and full range of tracks (including the Top Gear test track) will follow on from that. If launched in Japan Dec 2008 we will probably seeing at the end of Q1 2009.

If the clips I have seen flynig about on the net are anything to go by it should be tremendous...

Anyone know what difference between Prologue and what's actually out now to trial as a demo is...? Or is that just an old post?

I'm up to an Acura on the demo version having gone from suzuki cappucion, to eunos roadster (MX5) to lancer etc.

I had GT3 prologue, or maybe it was GT4 prologue, but whatever it was, it was Japan only and required some modding. But it was a solid 40 plus cars and 6+ tracks. The demo is only 3-5 cars? The demo is like, your standard demo. The prologue could pass for a real game by some racing game standards.

I played the jap version of GT5 prologue last nite on the PS3. The graphics are very good, and the cars very lifelike.
The gameplay is just alright but nothing special.

I am used to PC games and a proper force feedback steering wheel though

Is there not a FF wheel for PS3 like the 360 has?
