●Tokyo Game Show 2006

Dropped by the TGS 2006 for a little bit. I only wanted to have a quick go on GT HD. After sitting in line for about 30 min I was taken to my driving cockpit and let loose on some Swiss mountain roads. My choice of car, a BNR32 Skyline GT-R (the only GTR available). Graphics on GT HD were better than GT4 on PS2 but apart form the resolution increase I was truly disappointed. The game kept on slowing down for 2-3 seconds at a time, while all through out my game play of about 4 min I had a black line, about 4-5 pixel tall popping up on the screen 80 % of the time. Game play seemed to be identical to GT4...even the Logitech wheel was the same one I've been using since GT Proto. While I was in line I noticed 2 PS3 crash which had to be reset by the strangely dressed Sony girls. All in all I was far from impressed. On top of this I heard rumors that the PS3 will be delayed even in Japan and from what the Poliphony Digital stand had to offer I wouldn't be surprised if GT HD was delayed a few months...nothing new then! ;-)
