I did a search to see when the game was coming out... and found out a lot of interesting info on GT4.

First... my main question, when is it coming out. Sometime 2004. I am guessing early 2004.



More Screenshots Here

Here are some quick facts on the game:
  • Each course was created using anywhere from 20,000 to 30,000 still photos
  • Each car uses 300 parameters, 150-200 reference photos, and a core professional database to measure real life racing times versus their own AI racing completion times.
  • There will be more than 500 cars in the game, each comprising more than 2,000 to 3,000 polygons per car
  • Environments will feature photo-realistic new courses ranging from all over the world
  • There will be online play!!!
  • Cars range from old classics to current hot rods to old American muscle cars to current sports cars and rally cars




I got all of this info from IGN.com. (From these two articles):

I thought the game was coming late November/early December in order to cash in on the Christmas shopping rush.

Some of the cars in the game will be an original 1949 VW Beetle and 50's Bentley Continental, Morris Minor, Renault 4, and possibly even the first automobile ever, the 3-wheel Mercedes-Benz.

No Ferraris or Porsches however since they have exclusive deals with other software manufacturers.

I thought so too.... but I don't think it will be ready in time...


This is the most amazing game I have ever seen... I can't believe how much work is being put into it!! No wonder it is taking years and years to finish!!! eek.gif

too bad they didnt put it on XBox or Gamecube. GT3 basically brings the PS2 to its knees in graphics rendering power, XBox would have been a MUCH more suitible platform, and XBox's touch-sensative buttons on thier controllers work alot better than the PS2 ones. But, the gameplay should still kick ass, i am definatly going to get it.

lol funny thing is i went and bought GT3 a couple days ago, and was trying to decide on if i should buy a PS2 or not to play it, since its still 180$ i said fuck it, i would rather have an XBox for the same price, or a Gamecube for 99$

I just go over my freind house and play GT3 whenever nobody is on the PS2... which is not very often. sad.gif

I NEVER play video games.... I am not really into it anymore... I ONLY play GT3 and soon to be GT4.

It is not really a game anyways... it is a simulation!!! biggrin.gif



GT4 is going to come with a Steering wheel, Pedals and a SHIFTER!!! I will NEVER leave my home!!! tard.gif

actually, i read on the gamespot interview with the developers that gran turismo 4 is not maxing the capabilities of the PS2. they could go further and keep a steady framerate, but the work involved is impractical.

a lot of those pics of the game look real, thats awesome.
anyone know if there will be damage in it? i'd really like that added

also i went to a video game store in a mall near me and they said gt4 was comming out in april

they probably optimized it, when GT3 first came out i remember seeing an article about how it was hard for them to get it to run good on the PS2.

It is going to be released for PS2.

The Playstation 3 from what I have heard will be coming out in 2005. Wouldn't be surprised if they get it out for the Christmas season 2004 though.

If it's gonna be on console, then I don't care about it.
