Gran Turismo HD -- My Review

  1. ThatÂ’s passion
     
  2. Hilarious!

     
  3. I actually bought a 100+ dollar VGA cable for my projector, I was marketed that I need one since its 15 metre in lenght (signal being analogue). Has worked flawlesly.

    Of PS3, I was first slightly dissapointed when I heard that us europeans wouldnt get one until spring, but then GTHD was cancelled and it didnt feel so bad. Now Im back to being annoyed over not being able to buy one, when this free teaser came.

    GTplanet has threads of this, but their so messy and all, everyone is asking will Ferrari appear, which is ok, but more crusially, will Porsche also?

    And lastly, any confirmation over G25 functionality?
     
  4. @ Mc777 and rpham, do you guys not have tvs that do 720p?

    in my experience 720p is the best res to use b/c of the way that the screen refreshes if you only have a choice between 1080i and 720p. usually 720p gives u a better pic since most tvs are natively closer to the 1280x720 res rather than the 1920x1080 res. i run my shit over component (my tv doesn't have HDMI <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A> ) and at 720p, and it looks pristine.
     
  5. Go away
     
  6. never.
     
  7. n00b
     
  8. My TV only does 480p and 1080i, but I've played a couple PS3 games at 720p and they do look quite nice.
     
  9. How was the campaign mode for Resistance? Can you compare it to anything? You had all 3 systems before selling your PS3 right?
     
  10. lol @ henriksjostedt
     
  11. I think the campaign is probably one of the best you'll find in a FPS. It has an amazing storyline that's all told in hindsight and the narrator does a tremendous job of creating suspense and emotional urges.

    If you ever get a chance to borrow/own a PS3, I highly recommend it.
     
  12. It's clearly a good game, but you make it sound like it's one of the best ever with a story that will blow us all away, when reviews seem to think it's a pretty standard FPS albeit a well made one with an ok story and a rather bland forgetful protagonist.

    I'd like to hear it from the guy who has all 3 systems first if you don't mind. Besides, you yourself have made it clear you live under a rock and haven't played more than a tiny fraction of the big name good FPS games.
     
  13. Guys, Thou shall not speak of playing FPS games on consoles. Atleast not until a console accepts a mouse. And this thread was of GT, not console wars.
     
  14. if you play FPS games on the PC playing on a console just doesnt cut it.
     
  15. in GT:HD, is there an online mode???
     
  16. GT-HD is just a trial.. you start out with one car and you have to unlock the other 9 by finishing the lap in a certain amount of time... after you unlock all cars you will also unlock all the tuned cars.. and also the drifting trial.. your time is sent to an online ranking..
     
  17. Actually there is, the HDMI cable that came with my dvd player was shit, the videos would skip and freeze all the time. It wasn't able to push enough bandwidth.

    I got a better cable through tigerdirect(before I knew about monoprice) and now it's almost perfect(occasional pause). I'm putting in an order to monoprice for a better hdmi cable and it should be fixed.

    Paying $150 for an HDMI cable is stupid though.
     
  18. That's not necessarily a picture quality issue. That's a perfect example of the all-or-nothing nature of digital.
     
  19. It's the cable bandwidth issue, some of the cheaper cables can't transfer as fast.
     
  20. Ahhh, true dat. That would definitely be an issue.
     
  21. I'm using a Monoprice cable and it works great.

    Yeah, that guy is terrible at driving and it's a share that he recorded it from that view--using replay footage would have been a much better idea. But at least it gives you a chance to see what the game looks like in motion.

    Edit: the same guy made this video, and while the driving sucks just as bad, at least the angles are better.
