    Hmm, 8 x 12 = 96 which is a lot more than 60. So I reckon we could still see quite a few more tracks added to the list before release (or at least that is what I am hoping)

    We'll call it "mania" then, or whatever the quacks are calling it now...
    Good job I'm fortunate enough not to have to worry about time off :D


    One thing that has caught my eye, is the "30 days before twelve months pass" malarkey; a little jammy perhaps, unless the Japanese release date was but a ruse? :p

    Thanks to Amar for giving us something to scratch our heads over for sixteen months! :tup: :)

    I'd just like to thank Amar for his input regarding GT5. Youv'e given us something to look forward to over the long wait for GT5. And although it may have fueled more speculation than one can possibly comprehend, its quite obvious most of us appreciate the cryptic clues.:sly::tup: So thanks again.
    On a side note, I think PD and Kaz has taken care of all the major content for GT5 and I'm looking forward to the little things that we don't yet have an understanding of.;)

    Never doubted you for a second Amar :tup:

    Considering all the content in GT5 I think its going to be a nightmare deciding what to do when it finally releases. My first thought would be to start the career mode but can I resist the temptation of setting up a private room so I can race online with my friends.

    Im fairly confident now that GT5 will be the highlight of my 25yrs of playing video games. This should keep us going for years until GT6 comes along.

    Glad to see that Amar's winds have blown true. Being tied to an NDA left him in a tough situation when he wanted to give us news, but couldn't and a handful of people could not understand that concept.

    I hope those that were rude (and are still allowed at GTP) do apologize.

    I won't get hyped (over hyped in hindsight!) about another interview until it is announced Amar is getting interviewed. Good morning, indeed.

    Not going to search the thread for obvious reasons, but I wonder how many people posted BS!?

    Thanks again Amar.:)

    Permanent gold membership is in order for this man. He went through fire and survived as the winner.

    To be fair, I don't know this Amar too well, and I would never pin a god-like status on anybody who simply took some information they heard and worded it in a rather obscure manner. Clearly his source was reasonably accurate given all that is transpiring, but it's not like he simply read the stars at the time and guessed it all.

    Having said that, he clearly endured a lot of verbal diarrhoea so can see why people are paying him some respect now. So kudos to Amar, well done that man :tup:

    All this AND more. Amar = God. Excuse me God, I would like to join your church of birds....I have been a zealot since that day you put those winds up and have been very vocal in your support and not very pleasant to the people who voiced against you....sometimes to the point that I had the mods looking at me in very evil ways pondering on whether to kick my butt or not.

    Amar had been tied to an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) for nearly 2 years and for him to risk his neck way back then to bring us at GTPlanet the information we were so eager to receive was well appreciated by the people who followed what he said or knew him. It was also disbelieved by a group of people who are now being rather :censored: silent at the moment, and those people (you people know who you are) should be on here at the moment apologising their butts off for the amount of crap they directed towards Amar.

    So that's why he gave us info in the form of poetry. I thought that was pretty clever. Good job Amar. :tup:

    I love how all the doubters have not returned ever since. Cowards, they can talk big but can't ever back it up.

    They love the "tougher buffer" because it gives them room to be big men behind a computer screen. :mischievous:

    So here's the question:

    If amar knew all this so long ago, and it turns out he was right...

    Does that mean all the talk from PD and Kaz being indecisive, deciding and work in progress were BS and they actually knew all along and have just been more or less lying to us this whole time?

    Or they were following marketing protocol to not reveal to competitors what they are working on. Kaz being indecisive may just be his form of "no comment" or they really might not have been 100% sure if everything they were working on would make it into the game.

    If that was a marketing protocol, then it must be serious business.

    The cost to make the game has been estimated over $60 million. They expect multiples of that in profit. So yes, it is a serious, multimillion dollar business. Some companies don't even let all their employees in on their future plans to avoid leaks to competitors.

    And PD isn't the only game company that does it. David Jaffe adamantly denied he was working on another Twisted Metal title over and over again, only to reveal two years worth of work at E3.

    Although you're joking I wouldn't be so sure he doesn't know more than we do even after tomorrow has passed.
