    Well 2 million would be crazy cheap in the Japanese version :lol:

    It's worded a little strange, I personally don't think JP update is confirmed.


    Nope in game news works fine for me at the moment.

    Along with those screens with the Japanese text. Which also show 2millon.

    But I could just say "who cares getting the EU one anyway"

    I hope you can back that one up. There are going to be quite a few, not me, Americans who will do very well online.

    This is what I was hoping for though, just a bit of trash talk. Of course, we may want to avoid any regional/country trash talking as to avoid raising stereotyping issues.

    As long as it stays clean and fun, not Halo style, it should be cool.

    This reminds me of the PGR3 global tournament. The comp was split into three regions, usa, europe and asia with each getting equal slots into the final. The americans on the major forums were complaining that america would be way faster and its not fair that the other regions get it so easy. They even predicted all the winners, all american. In reality europe was much faster and even with a smaller player base the bar to qualify was set higher...

    But yes there are fast guys to be found all over the world.

    LOL, why am I not surprised at this?

    I'm looking forward to the trashtalking, honestly. I wish everyone had thicker skin, as well, because it can really promote competiton, within reason. I certainly like the perception that NA racers will be slower (likely true). The fastest drivers during in my time in the WRS have not been from NA.

    I prefer to think of myself as the underdog for motivational purposes anyway!

    Have we drifted off topic?

    Has hand movement been fixed to match steering wheel(controller) rotations?

    I've actually played on this sim at the Seattle Int'l Auto Show, once.

    It's less great than it looks. The movement of the machine is totally random (as opposed to, say, being affected by the movement of your car) and for some insane reason it's next to impossible to go in a straight line.

    Kind of a cool idea, though. (Still the worst $3 I've ever spent)

    Just saw Prologue running properly for the first time on a 55" HD screen at work. What else can I say other than....

    OH.
    MY.
    GOD.

    Best looking game ever? Easily, IMO. It's made me want to buy a PS3 though! :lol:

    Hehe, I have a PS3 with GT5 now and it looks stunning, but my 360 is still the main gaming console, I have too many great games on it to switch to using the PS3 more often. CoD4 still has a grip on me!
