Where's that Famitsu claim? If you're talking about the ripten article, it only says that PSU claims GT5P has damage, not Famitsu.

Oh yes I've read that article without paying enough attention (I got that Famitsu was stating like PSU that there was a damage system) :/

BTW OMG at the LOndon gif!

Many fans of the series may also be pleased to learn that damage modelling has finally been implemented with Prologue. On the whole, the damage effects are quite realistic and we can safely say that the days of the Gran Turismo series being called a ‘bumper car simulator’ are over.
From here

Confirmation of this please?

Original article posted on PSU.
I thought that it would come later as an add-on pack though. I'm glad that it's included in Prologue, if the info given is true. :)

EDIT:
Still, many fans will be disappointed to learn that damage modeling has yet to be implemented, and it is currently unknown whether or not the final build will contain this element.
Uh, nvm...I knew it was too good to be true. :(

Of course they might, now that Sony has shown them the way. Well, there go the dreams of true 1080p gaming on this gen consoles. As if vertical upscaling was not enough. Man, they really do come up with nice ways to fleece the gamers.
Didn't microsoft advertised some games as "HD" that weren't a year before a PS3 game was even released?

Why is everyone obsessing over the GT5P photo mode shots and trailers. None of those give a true impression how the game will run, nor do they give an inkling of gameplay. I wish the GT5 people would start talking more about physics and less about graphics.

Oh, sorry, we didn't get our early copies of the game to discuss it's physics yet.

do you really think there will be a graphical gap between prologue and 5? I mean, Prologue looks already stunning. There is almost no way to improve this.
I'm pretty certain there will be. It's still not complete and has around a year left in development. GT4 did the samething.

There certainly will be a significant gap. I have no doubts in PD...they add a whole load of polish on top of their Prologues.

the gif shows the track graphics are pretty much exactly like the shots...even in the replays, the backgrounds look the same, effects are just overlaid...its the lighting that makes it look incredible, of course the modelling is fantastic as well

There is always a slight improvement between the Prologues and actual GT games. Things will be tweaked, adjusted & improved. The thing is don't expect some huge graphical adjustment, just a slight polish.

Funny how I thought they'd never be able to pull that off or that was CG or something.

Never doubt Polyphony again.
Heh they've never shown CG at any point for GT5. When all they had was GT4 in HD that's what they showed and they built from there. I guess the funniest part about that is that some claimed the reason they kept showing GT4 in HD was due to them losing their touch and losing key members to other companies. Of course those people don't enter GT threads anymore.

It's true I should play it, hope fully get a chance next week. I just hope there's more to this games (eg. community features, developer run tournaments) than just the awesome art direction because this is the game I'll buy a PS3 for. It just has to play better than Forza 2.

Just in case you didn't know...those saying "uh it's all about the physics"....Famitsu gave it 39/40 - GT5 plays better than any other racer on the market.

What is the difference between GT HD Concept and GT 5 Prologue? I just got a PS3 and unfortunately I can't download the Prologue demo since it has been removed.

As big shakers for Polyphony they probably have priority amongst manufacturers on pre-orders for new models too!

HD Concept is basically a tech demonstration featuring only two modes. Prologue is the next-gen GT we've all been waiting for.

That wouldn't surprise me. I know Kaz mentioned that he was goign to be getting the new GTR when it came out and in the same interview he mentioned that he'd just ordered his second Ford GT. Because apparenltly 1 isn't enough.

Don't worry I know where to find it, but if you tell us the name of the video (like Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Gameplay Movie number something) it helps :)

I guess you could say GT HD was basically a epilogue to GT4(it doesn't have the new physics model), and GT5:p is a prologue to 5.

I'm sorry, but the Daihatsu Materia is far better than those cars. (Latest Top Gear reference)

He's buying another Ford GT because like Clarkson's, his first one broke. Multiple times.

"And what's more in a straight line at 85mph it'll easily overtake the Ascari when its doing 70."

That's always possible since the car doesn't seem to be that reliable despite being really nice. It was one of my favorites in GT4. This was Kaz's car collection as of a few months ago 2005 Ford GT, Honda S2000, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V, Porsche GT3, Nissan 350Z, Mercedes AMG SL55.
