Re: XR6Turbo and XR8Supercar in GranTurismo4...

I've played the prologue edition of GT4 and it feels like GT3, looks like GT3 except it's got added features. they did a good job with the rally stuff, but again, there are a lot of $hitboxes to go through before getting anywhere near a decent machine.

Re: XR6Turbo and XR8Supercar in GranTurismo4...

I thought they'd release the "GT4 prototype" in australia as well anyway? I just couldn't get enthused about buying a pre-release cut down version of the full game . . . I'd rather wait and play it in its full glory (and it better *be* glorious ).
One cynically wonders if the delays are simply a way of screwing twice as much money / sales from the one game/development . . .

Re: XR6Turbo and XR8Supercar in GranTurismo4...

Hate to burst your bubble... but there aint no XR6T in GT4.

They had only planned to release the prologue edition in America and Japan. The delays are more or less to get more hype up for the game.

I still think that the game feels a little slow compared to GT2... which I liked better than GT3. But, that's personal preference.

Re: XR6Turbo and XR8Supercar in GranTurismo4...

Prologue edition is Japan only, and has only 50 of the final products 500 cars according to infomation from ign.com

And the next rumour that I have heard is with regards to the 50 tracks (not including reverse) - and that is that Melbourne might be included.

Why doesn't the list have the Honda Fireblade (motorbike) engined Caterham 7 that EVO magazine had built for them.

They did an article on how it was tested and recorded by the GT4 guys last year.
