No it would have been a better game within half the time, because it wouldn't have been developed by a studio of incompetent idiots. We (Aussies) pay ~$110 for new games when they are released not $60 so I have the right to complain. At this rate we probably won't see the game till Christmas or early 2011.
As for your point of view about the PSP not being a console, it is a console, and considering the guys at Rockstar Games released two full GTA games for the PSP, with two different story lines and two complete cities, I think Polyphony could have done a much simpler career mode for the PSP version, but no instead they released a game that turned out way below everyone's expectations.
It wouldnt have been the same game in half the time. You guys can complain about the time all you want but you should know that when this is released you will likely be getting a massive deal for your 60$. gtpsp was a psp game, not meant to be a full on GT game with career etc. Handhelds are not consoles.
The Prologue was just terrible, god knows why they even released that, oh wait I know why they wanted to make money so that they can continue developing a game that has taken ~3 years, the time trial is one car, driving around one track WOW!!! IMPRESSIVE!!!
Any competent studio could have released the same game in half the time, and don't get me started on GT PSP, I hope the moron's that came up with that one got fired from a cannon into the sun.
fitness controller... I can see it now. The faster you work the faster it accelerates.
But yeah, wow. They gave us a prologue and a down loadable time trial to tide us over. And it has been delayed some more. It will be an awesome title without a doubt, at least it better be by the time we get to play it. I will have this game. I didn't see a reason to get the prologue as I waited for the game but i did rent it. The game has changed quite a bit from the prologue. Bet it will be a great title.
