Polyphony Digital still working on GT5 having a stable framerate

1 min read


Polyphony Digital boss, Kaz Yamauchi, has stated in the latest version of the PSM3 magazine that GT5 may at times drop below the promised 60fps and for that he begs your forgiveness.

Now I’m not a GT fan at all so I can’t say for sure if it’s important that the framerate drops in certain circumstances but that’s not what worries me about this.

The thing that jumps out the page to me is when he states the following

“Our engineers complain every day: ‘Isn’t it enough that it’s in 1080p? Does it have to be 60fps too?’ But I think 60fps is very important, so we’re working towards perfecting that.”

Now wasn’t GT5 meant to be completed already with just a minor technical issue that was still outstanding, the rumour being that the delay was purely down to a change in firmware?

We are still being told to expect GT5 before Christmas but on the recent PS3 IGN podcast the guys weren’t confident that it would arrive in time and if they are still working on issues like this I would have to agree with them.

GT5 in February 2011 maybe?

    Ah f it, getting real fedup with this whole ordeal. George Broussard and Kaz must be brothers from a different mother. Come on already.

    Luckily, F1 will keep me busy for the months to come!

    I’d be totally happy with 50fps Kaz , release it already.

    well i guess what the frame rate drop was? if its staying above 30fps its still ok but anything under and your likely to land up in walls or other things due to lag in handling and so on. Other problems come in with inconsistancy of play. Even a drop from 60fps to 40fps going into a corner and your bound to either under/over steer. My opinion, if they cant keep it stable at 60, rather take it to 40/50fps and get in stable.

    1920x1080p or 1280x1080p???

    Anyway, 1080p is messing the game up.


  5. Uberutang

    October 20, 2010 at 11:10

    1920x1080p = 1080P


  6. Fox1

    October 20, 2010 at 11:44

    Um..according to other sites it’s 1280x1080p + 2xAA

    Hows about we not worry about these things, and see how the game is when we eventually get it? We’ve been waiting six years, a month or two won’t kill anyone. And I seriously doubt Polyphone will release an unfinished game, perfectionists that they are.

    this news was mentioned months ago by kaz explaining that when 16 cars on a wet track kick up water the frame rate will drop

    so because a game magazine picks up this info now!!!!
    this is news????!!!

    this is a troll, trying to get back at gt by digging up info, since i did it for the forza article i know understand how internet articles fanboys vs fanboys, if thats how you guys wanna play im gonna be digging a whole lotta dirt about turn 10!


  9. Gavin Mannion

    October 20, 2010 at 21:21

    lol it’s cute that you think this was posted in response to Forza dirt 🙂


  10. lans

    October 20, 2010 at 21:33

    you do know that this news is super old?? like over 3 months? so how does it apply now i know i am right must i rub your face in the computer screen??!


  11. Gavin Mannion

    October 20, 2010 at 21:46

    I hadn’t heard of this before and after a quick search haven’t seen any posts where he admits to these framerate issues 3 months ago.

    Don’t worry lans, the game will arrive one day. We’re 90% confident of that


  12. lans

    October 20, 2010 at 21:48

    ok gavion im gonna get you a link. im gonna smear that face of yours into the screen and read and be intelligent!!!

    i sent this to you earlier the news that the fps of gt5 will not hold was released at tokyo game show 2010

    getting link shortly
    Weather conditions are randomized. Forecasts for your race will be available but may not be entirely accurate, just like the real world.
    Polyphony Digital has helped Red Bull Racing’s Adrian Newey design the X1 Concept – an “ultimate” racing car, free of any technical regulations.
    Polyphony Digital has worked to improve engine sounds.
    Yamauchi admits that, in certain situations – such as standing race starts in the rain with 15 other cars on the screen kicking up spray in front of you – the game may not be able to hold 60FPS. Otherwise, it will strive to hold 60FPS as often as possible.
    The Volkswagen Kubelwagen, which has a drive system like the first beetle, and the amphibious Volkswagen Schwimmwagen will be in the game.
    Many things didn’t make the cut in Gran Turismo 5, and work on Gran Turismo 6 has already begun.

    This post will continue to be updated as more information is released.http://www.gtplanet.net/gran-turismo-5-tgs-2010-breakout-session-full-details/

    AA has *nothing* to do with 1080p as a standard.


  18. Luna

    October 20, 2010 at 22:18

    lans, simply put, you’re not a very nice person at all. You could have a constructive conversation and get all the info you want. Calm down.


  19. Luna

    October 20, 2010 at 22:18

    Why do people like you have to have the intelligence to post on the Internet? *sigh*


  20. lans

    October 20, 2010 at 22:27

    Dear luna
    u are a douche!
    Kind Regards

    is that nice enough for you?
    mr/miss perfect?

    plus you insulted me and im not nice!!!!
    Im not nice??!
    Luna u are the definition of insanity
    k thx


  21. Luna

    October 20, 2010 at 22:29

    Please, please, find a way to get rid of this idiot, lans. Please? Pretty please?


  22. lans

    October 20, 2010 at 22:32

    Dear Luna
    your a hippo!
    bleedy hypocrite!
    Yours Truly

    stop insulting me!
    or else im gonna go postal!


  23. Luna

    October 20, 2010 at 22:35

    Lans, listen. You don’t like a story Gavin posted. In turn, you are treating him like shit for that reason alone. You have NO right to treat someone like this, and if you were face to face with Gavin or anyone here, you’d cower. It’s not worth treating someone like this for. If you are constructive, you will get MUCH better of a response.

    And a hippo? wtf is that even mean? And a hypocrite? How? Hypocrite means “a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings” How am I acting contrary to what I have states as a belief or feeling?

    Keep in mind, you went off on me because I said you weren’t a nice person. Ever heard the term “over reaction”?


  24. Gavin Mannion

    October 20, 2010 at 22:36

    That would be 1 month old, not 3…

    And yes it appears this was announced earlier well done lans.

    Thanks for the post though, didn’t know they had already started on GT6 that’s another article all by itself 🙂


  25. Gavin Mannion

    October 20, 2010 at 22:36

    Aw but we like lans, he keeps us entertained and is always good for a few cheap hits


  26. Luna

    October 20, 2010 at 22:38

    Gavin, I can hit him? COOL!!!! Commere lans….


  27. lans

    October 20, 2010 at 22:41

    Luna plz listen to yourself your insulting me more than i was insulting gavin!
    in fact im not insulting gavin at all! im insulting game media in general. i am angry, so cant take the heat go play on wii or something.
    im sorry but being nice does not cut it. especially on the interwebs!


  28. Luna

    October 20, 2010 at 22:48

    I’m not insulting you. I’m calling you out on what you’ve done wrong.

    Because it’s “the interwebs” doesn’t mean you have the right to treat people like dirt. You are interacting with REAL PEOPLE here, and because you can’t see their face doesn’t mean that you have the right to treat them like you are.

    And seriously, you are ANGRY that they may have reported a story a little late? Isn’t that better then not at all? Hasn’t their track record here proved that they know what they’re doing? I would loooooooooove to know how you’re not insulting Gavin by yelling and screaming at him and telling him you’re gonna smear his face on the screen. You must be that freak that was here last week going off on everyone.

    Now go ahead and “go postal”. I’d like to see how it is different then your amazing anger over a video game story being reported here later then another source.

    Gavin? How could you do such a thing? How could you report a story that is more then 14 seconds old! I can’t believe you’d do such a thing. I’ll never, ever, come back to your site again until the next time I come here! Take THAT! ^_^

    P.S. Gavin, you’re right, he is fun!


  29. lans

    October 20, 2010 at 22:48

    luna seriously this is abuse!
    what did i ever do to you, i ignored you i should get a medal of valor for that instead i get verbally assaulted.

    anyways lets stop fighting, luna you completely hijacked this thread i will let you off with a warning
    and a gt5 reputation score of -9999


  30. Luna

    October 20, 2010 at 22:52

    Lans… oh sorry, no caps …. lans, give it up. Seriously.

    What have you done to me? You’ve given me someone to laugh at, you. You created a huuuuge deal over a story being reported here later then other places. That made you angry! And you warned me. HAH HAH HAH! You are truly funny. I’m home for the day now, go head and spout some more B.S. for us to laugh at.


  31. lans

    October 20, 2010 at 22:54

    luna im not a bleedy sheep and im not gonna be feed microshaft sponsorship nonsense!
    if you want to accept everything that comes your way fine!

    but im not a sheep, and i microsoft is the king of media and pr in the gaming industry, if nobody fights their assault of misinformation and lies who will!

    and i dont care much for carebears like you who are so self conscious and care what everybody thinks of them.
    are you a girl or something coz only a girl would say something like that.

    Lets all be fwends and hug trees and be respectful
    f that!
    that is just bureaucratic smurf nonsense!


  32. lans

    October 20, 2010 at 22:57

    luna running out of ammo so soon?
    not much of a fighter are you
    run home to your mummy!
    and live in your propaganda filled world.
    yes santa claus is real luna
    im sure you still believe that one lol


  33. Luna

    October 20, 2010 at 23:01

    If I want to accept everything that comes my way, fine? Uhm, what? How does that figure in? How does Microsoft figure into Gran Turismo, a game made by Polyphony Digital and distributed by Sony? How are you a sheep for accepting … what? Wow, you managed to bring in things that have nothing to do with this. Your brilliance is unmatched! heh

    I’m a woman, not a girl. But I’m sure you’ll find a way to insult that too, in some way that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

    I haven’t given up, as you said. You’re just not worth the effort to do anything more. I’ve kept a level head here, and I will, because I’m totally loving your attitude. You are absolutely hilarious and the perfect example of a typical Internet freak.

    They say not to argue on the Internet (not “interwebs”) because you drop down to their level. Well, I’m enjoying making you a bigger laughing stock to everyone reading these comments. ^_^

    *awaits next onslaught of insults, poor grammar, and info that has nothing to do with Gran Turismo*

  35. lans

    October 20, 2010 at 23:17

    first of all it is you!!!
    who derailed this thread, you did not contest the information i found out, you went after me

    Second you are calling me names constantly like some insecure puppy, barking everywhere!
    its simple luna ignore me ill ignore you very well i promise im quite good at that!

    if you dont understand whats going on in a gt5 thread rather hang back and understand whats going on in slow, safe and controlled manner so you can asses the situation, jumping in and attacking me without knowing whats going on will only get you killed.

    information is key!
    the moment you commented in a thread you know nothing about is the moment you lost the battle!

    you obviously know next to nothing about gt and know next to nothing about how much i love this game!

    Sun Tzu the art of war!

    so your cheap insults are falling on deaf ears can all you offer is something that can never compare

    I love you
    You love me
    We’re best friends

  38. Luna

    October 20, 2010 at 23:33

    All I’ll say is that I would stake quite a bit that I know a lot more about gaming and GT then you do. I own every version of GT out, even the PSP. It doesn’t matter to me that you love the game. You need to learn some self control, little boy. Until then, you are no more then entertainment. ^_^

    October 20, 2010 at 23:42

    luna and u say i speak b.s!, all you know is what your boyfriend told you! i can see a gt fan a mile away, ACID is a gt fan, nick is a GT fan, but in a caesar/brutus kind of way! you are a casual gt fan period!


  44. Luna

    October 20, 2010 at 23:48

    No, GT4, only went online if you used a peach to connect to the Internet. The fastest car was the Yugo. My favorite track was the perfect re-creation of my driveway. Weather was taken out of every track that you like. They told me that fact specifically. They are also replacing the go karts with tricycles and adding hurricane force winds!

    I’m not wasting my time proving anything to you, fanboy.

    Now I think I’ll go play Forza 3 just because you hate it so much. ^_^

    Wow, lans we know you are having a tough time at school. People bully you and make fun of you (your sentence structure in particular) and we just want to say that we are all here to support you through this tough time.

    GT5 will be awesome, no need for you to act like a knight on your black rabbid horse to “correct” everyone.

    We all had an idea that you were not the brightest spark of them all, but my oh my, after all your posts, we are no longer in doubt.

    I’m probably adding fuel to the fire, but lans, fuck off and get a life, pretty please.

    i read comments because sometimes bits of information that weren’t present in the article show up. in this case, it was a bitch fight and pointless (by your own admission might i add). so i felt compelled to post, i do apologise.

    o and please do feel sorry for me… i really could do with as much caring as possible these days. 😉

    sharing is caring mate.

    LOL!!!….Lans, all this about 1 month old news. Dude, did it ever occur to you that Lazygamer journalists don’t just write for your convenience. There are a few of us here that rely on Lazygamer for our gaming news, so in future when you find an article written about something you already knew…keep it to yourself… or if you must, give yourself a pat on the back and get on with your life.

    It’s like the pot is calling out the kettle.

    First up this report is relating to a different quote the the article you refer to, yes they both speak of the same issue, but it’s now just being reiterated.
    But for me the only thing you have managed to prove is that you are failing English miserably. Perhaps you should cut back on the GT time and try some school work first.
