Paul Ellis over at Tech Consumer has raised a very valid point about the upcoming Gran Turismo 5 game.
Seeing that the Prologue, which is just a glorified demo, is retailing for +- R350 and the actual real game is going to retail for an expected R699 we are actually seeing the first PS3 game ever to break the R1000 mark.
What is even more disturbing is that this game was meant to be a virtual launch title and the ‘real’ GT5 is now only expected in the early stages of 2009… That’s a 30 month delay from a first party developer… That is a worrying sign.
So should we as consumers allow developers who can’t get their titles out to rather just sell us gimped versions early to help with their budget or should we just refuse. From what I have heard so far Gran Turismo 5 isn’t much better than any other racing game out at the moment so what’s the point?
