    agree can only see about 300 cars


    @JOSH were you getting those screenshots from cos that looks awful and on my 40" full hd tv it looks ten times better than that.

    Re: GT5 stuff

    What are the loading times like on the game? (one of my pet hates).
    Before and after installing if possible.

    Cheers, Roo

    While i can't comment on every menu/loading screen, Digitalfoundry said that by installing your load times decrease by around 50%, the worst case scenario being 80 seconds if you don't install.

    Even once installed there is a lot of disk seeking and installing while you play the game anyway.

    Re: GT5 stuff

    Just read that the installation needs like 10GBs, I have a 40Gb PS3 with only about 10GB left.

    I have no idea, what's taking up all the space since I don't have that much installed. May need to upgrade my HDD for this.

    No. Decent driving game however, quite possibly.

    The option install is around 6.5GB IIRC, so either someone is lying or 10GB is once everything is installed.
    You would probably benefit from getting a bigger/newer-faster HDD anyway. The game decides to have a 1 minute boot-up 'freeze' for some reason. I get too the home screen and have to wait about a minute before the mouse appears -_-

    That means i have to fork out for a bigger HDD too. I have only 5GB :S Glad i found that out before i bought it. Was so close to getting it for £30. maybe i wait abit.

    Re: GT5 stuff

    8.0 From CVG:
    http://www.computerandvideogames.com....php?id=277364
    This is a good game.

    But, it's not a great one. Too much of GT5 relies on past glories, building on the success of the series without shaking free of the design quirks that are holding the series back. High expectations are justified when a game has been in development so long and GT5 has more than a faint whiff of disappointment about it.
    Sony fans might want to hide behind the sofa for the following line:
    "Overall - and we NEVER thought we'd say this - we reckon Forza III has the march on GT5 in overall aesthetics."

    Re: GT5 stuff

    Such a shame, a couple of years back I was super hyped for GT5, but tbh I've lost all interest now and from what you guys are saying the nail is in the coffin for me
    Should you be interested? Here's what I've been...
    Doing, Playing and Listening to.

    80% is a tad more than half.

    My Silvia already has the 'shadows' applied to it in a gradient

    Same here.

    Load game up> freezes > pointer eventually appears after a new record of 2 minutes > click Gt Life > another 2 minute freeze.

    Rinse repeat every time i come out of or go into a menu.

    This must be a joke right?

    Sadly, physics is currently tied to the difficulty of the race. Later races have more realistic physics and damage models.

    Very puzzling design decision, IMO.

    PoS.

    Thats because the game is continuesly sending and receiving data via http or socket connection on the same Thread. i can actually visualize how they coded it and a recent graduate seems to have coded that part of the game!!!

    This must be a joke right?
    TBH, i was jsut wondering this. I blasted round the 'ring in my Lupo in around 8 minutes or so (literally, turn in accelerate, laugh at the endless amount of grip).

    I tried doing the Mercedes 'ring challenge before (in the Gullwing) and it was a lot more realistic (sliding, braking) and my time was also around 8 minutes.

    Saying that, I've not noticed the physics option in the menu either like on Prologue.

    But it was fine yesterday and earlier today. It's getting longer each time i turn the game on If that is the issue, its embarrassing, how much worse is it going to get
