Saw the latest video of GT4 the other day and it's looking really great now. But does anyone know if they've dumped that stupid penalty for hitting walls yet?

*COUGH*

Yes they have dumped the penalty (it was intended for online balance - no online, no penalty).

I played the final demo - limited to 150 seconds but you get to go round the Nordschleife and the Paris track (which looks amazingly real)... rather than a penalty they have included a rather nice 'head jolt' effect when you prang into the wall, you can practically feel the whiplash :-)

You obviously haven't been keeping up.

The 'full' GT4 is NOTHING like Prologue.

You could do, but after the abysmal Prologue, I think I'll be giving GT4 a miss.

Might pick it up on PSP if I ever get one of those...

Or you could get both, like I'm planning to do. I can't have enough racing games in my collection. :)

Anyone with any sense (and an Xbox, obviously) will go for Forza Motorsport instead.
