Watch the Mercedes SLS AMG in Gran Turismo 5 action

Friday, 25th September 2009 12:04 GMT By Patrick Garratt


There’s a HD video of the Mercedes SLS AMG in action in GT5 on YouTube. You’d be hard pressed to separate game and film in parts.

The Polyphony racer was confirmed for a March 31 ship in Japan at TGS yesterday.

    Quite amazing how close graphics get to realism these days (except for the bloom)

    What is this “GT5″ of which you speak?

    There was mention here that Sony were to release UK/US date on this site yesterday? I guess that did not materialise?

    Played GT5P last night after the days GT5 press releases. The 458 tribute video is on GT TV to dl in HD. Lovely.

    Still >March is going to be a hard wait, it seems like an eternal wait. I think nearly every buyer of a ps3 in the back of their minds is also thinking about this game.

    I suspect that sales may rise big time come release time in EU.

    You shouldn’t have answered the second question really. And GDC is for developers, not an exhibition.

    That’s quite radically different. And Gran Turismo most certainly was not there.

    oh boy, great another xbot spreading lies. Hey kid this isn’t 2006 anymore your tricks and lies aren’t going to scrape the truth that is Uncharted,GT5,MAG,KZ2,and other superior PlayStation exclusives.

    anybody read that bit from NeoGaf about the M$ troll :P
    Xbots are so pathetic its getting really annoying.

    #19 5 years ago

    Yeah, GT5′s damage is pretty pathetic to say the least.

    Frickin embarassing
    Gran Turismo 4 – 6/18/04
    Forza 1 – 5/3/05
    Forza 2 – 8/19/08
    Forza 3 – 10/27/09
    Gran Turismo 5 – 3/?/10

    Seriously I’m done waiting, how can they let someone make 3 games before releasing GT5.
    360 it is, Forza it is, Bill Gates it is!

    loool im joking ^_^

    Regarding the “troll poster”… god forbid one of the nearly 100,000 employees who works for each of these megacorps is allowed to have an opinion.

    #22 5 years ago

    I rather have better looking cars than a NFS shift/Grid rip off.
    Forza 3 HA! more like Forza 2.5 and that rewind BS doesn’t make it anywhere near a racing sim. If you fuck up, you fuck up plain and simple. As for damage the game doesn’t seem to be 100% and March is still 6 months away.

    And Swat you don’t want me to name Sony’s “SUPERIOR” 1st party titles across “all” Sony platforms. Don’t go there kid. You’ll get owned just like every other xbot on this site before you.

    bla bla bla ,,, did u try forza 3 demo ?

    #24 5 years ago
  25. Psychotext

    Yeah, he did. Funnily enough, I had his impressions mapped out in my head before he even played the demo though. :)

    That said… I think anyone that mentions SHIFT, GRID and Forza 3 in the same sentence wouldn’t recognise a sim game if it rolled over them.

    #25 5 years ago
  26. theevilaires

    Yes I played the NFS shift…oops sorry i mean Forza 2.5…oops sorry again i mean Grid 1 1/2 oops sorry again I mean Crusin USA…oops sorry again, forza 3 yea I’ve played the demo.

    you know what, it would be stupid for sony to release GT5 this year. really look at all the great stuff they have already. M$ can’t compete with UC2,NGS2,R&C and what else, I don’t even know there’s just so much stuff.

    2010 is just going to be crazy
    GOW3,MAG,GT5,SingStar:Michael Jackson! :P

    Btw… do you ever plan on buying a game other than COD4 for your 360, or was it just a $249 license to troll? Talking of COD4, how is it that you have a 0 gamerscore? That game throws achievements at you.

    Edit – Oh, actually your profile says the only game you’ve played is Hasbro Family Game Night. Maybe you didn’t play COD4.

    #28 5 years ago

    A $250.00 + tax license to troll and reveal the truth to the gaming community that it isn’t what you xbots make it out to seem. Don’t worry read my full review soon then you’ll see my true reasons. Nothing I have said so far about the 360 has been false though. Do you agree?

    I plan on buying all the great exclusives for it…btw…but it’s hard trying to find brand new copies of Bullet Witch,Shadow Run,and Ninety Nine Nights you know ;)

    No but being serious I’ve been too busy trophy whoring to go out and drop more money on a console that I’m too far behind on. I would have to dedicate 6 months to catch up on everything xbox like you did with PS3 and I just don’t have the time at the moment. I’m still getting MW2 for both systems so G1GA doesn’t have to buy the PS3 ver.

    I never played that crap hasbro game and I wish it would remove its ugly Mr. potato head man icon off the game folder. I’m not buying COD4 for 360, why would I? I’ll just rent it, let G1GA own me and then buy MW2 and beat the English accent out his ass ;) That way everyone is happy….jesh buy COD4 now!? I’m still not even lvl 55 10th prestige on PS3 yet…I’m lvl 42 10th prestige :P

    #30 5 years ago

    My copy of MW2 should turn up a week early btw, tea!

    #32 5 years ago

    Will it be the Prestige edition? Tell us how well those NVG’s fair if it is.

    #34 5 years ago

    Nah, it’s just the standard edition.

    The prestige edition is due for release day, but the way the post is at the moment, I wouldn’t want to rely on that…

    You can remove 0 point games from your game list TEA. Just go into the achievement screen and select delete.

    As for false / true. If you really think SHIFT / GRID are the same as Forza 3 (other than being racing games)… it’s not a case of being right or wrong, it’s more a case of not having a clue. :)

    #36 5 years ago

    I was making a point before that interestingly enough, it’s the arcadey style games that seem to be taking over in terms of the intense experince that being in a super actually is IRL.

    I was in an F430 Scuderia the other day, and believe me when I say that so called sims like GT and Forza don’t even come close in terms of replicating that feeling.

    The arcade racers do a much better job of it, even though they obviously lose out on realism when it comes to tweaking and customising, etc.

    lucky you G1GA. get as much as an advantage while you can because the race to the top of the list in F4A is going to be intense. I just hope they have something extra for me to use against you and that silenced P90.

    I went in a GT car on an Atari press trip once. I was driven round a track in France. It was absolutely fucking terrifying. It’s not possible for a game to replicate the sensation of, “I could actually die now.”

    Forza and Gran Turismo still look very pretty, though.

    I rather enjoyed Ninety Nine Nights, actually.

    It had nice box art… :p

    #40 5 years ago

    @ tea: yeah, I’ll probably practice just learning the maps. I think what happened last time was that people who played it early had all their stats reset on official release day, so I won’t spend too much time trying to rank up.

    @ Pat: LOL! Sure, no game will probably ever be able to give you a genuine sense of the thrill of real life speed, but some are getting better at pretending, while others are pretty much the same game that they were almost 10 years ago.

    @ G1GA: that sounds fair

    @ Garrat: Ur Rite
