    picked it up today, got the last copy at the store.
    graphically, very impressive. play is excellent as well.
    the major disappointment for me is the lack of support for the logitech force feedback wheel i already own. the thing i don't understand is that they put in the support on the demo, but not the full game. oh yeah, they're selling a NEW wheel (read, same shit) for another 100 some odd dollars. complete bullshit. greedy bastards.

    GT3 is basically GT2 with prettier graphics. Yeah, there are slight improvements and additions here and there, but overall it's the same game. "Emotion physics" is just marketing hype.
    Don't get me wrong--this game is still fun. I played it till 2:30 last night. But it's not a great improvement over GT2.

    I agree completely.
    The game is awesome and I'm going to put some serious hours into in but...
    I'm amazed how the Racing AI hasn't changed from the early days.
    You have one super car that you are really racing, then the rest are just bunched up behind it.
    After a few races, it seems like the AI are on that ride at Disney World, on rails.
    Just once, I'd love to see an AI car wipeout and be so far out of it (like I do all the time).
    I'll replay a track over and over again to get a gold, and its always the same car in the lead, winning the same way and time.
    I would have called it Super Gran Turismo 2 Lite (because of the less cars).

    My buddy brought his PS2 over, and we hooked it up to my system. WOW!! I loved GT and GT2 to death, but GT3 is the all-time BEST!! It has a 16:9 option which is great with my Sony Wega, the sound is incredible although I wish it had a Dolby D track, and the CARS and Graphics are awesome. Since there is alotta motion, this game would be best if it was progressive, but 16:9 enhanced works for me!
    My favortie part is that it's just as easy (of difficult) to handle the driving as the last game! I love my life!

    Chuck, if you have a 4x3 TV, you are going to gain NOTHING by running this game in 16x9.
    The whole point of 16x9 enhancement is the make the most use out of 1etterboxed presentations, by not wasting scanlines on black bars.
    GT3 IS IN 4x3, thus nothing is gained. The only nice thing about it is that people with 16x9 screens can push a button and run it undistorted on their screens.

    Im considering getting this game, and probably will. I'm wondering if the opening video has 5.1 support (like the opening to The Bouncer) and if the camera is too close to the cars in 16x9 mode rather than just allow you to see farther out on the sides. If anyone knows who Scooter Jolley is (http://www.scootplex2000.homestead.com is his website), then it should be noted that I am his son, and if you know what our basement is like, then you'll get an idea of what I'll be playing this game on...
    Also, I heard that Logitech made a wheel for PC that works with GT3:A-S. Thats what I heard, but I'm not sure.

    Chad Parks, I could not disagree more with your asessment of 'Gran Turismo 3' on a Sony Wega. I've seen 'GT3' on my Wega, and you can't tell me i'm gaining "NOTHING". Do you feel the same way about dvd's on a WEGA, because if you do, your mistaken about not gaining anything.

    This is the most incredibly realistic driving game i've ever seen!

    Chuck C, I have played 'GT3' on my Wega and it is simply a wonder to behold in 16x9! Thank you for backing me up on this issue.

    Van,
    Unfortunately, your 24FV12 doesn't have 16:9 enhanced mode, so you're missing out! Sell that puppy and move on up to a 27" !!

    I've been playing it on my 40H80 and it is anamorphically delicious. Truly a sight to behold.

    Ok, whatever. The game is made to be played 4x3, so you guys are gaining anything, and you're not gettting any extra resolution...

    Chad, whatever you're smokin' guy i want some! [​IMG]
    Do you, or do you not understand these statements......
    GT3 has true 16:9 support.
    GT3 is designed to be played on a 4:3.
    GT3 is also designed to be played on a 16:9.
    GT3 on a 16:9 shows you more lateral info, i hate to break
    it to you buddy, it doesn't drop vertical info off if that
    is what you are suggesting.
    ....too bad you can't see GT3 on our 65" 16:9.....gaining
    nothing, yeh right...
