Tourist Trophy : The Real Riding Simulator

Anyone got theirs yet? I was at the place I reserved mine last week and they said it will be in on wednesday (5th). But yesterday I was looking at the official Sony website and it said it was to be released today?!! So I'm gonna go hit them up and then drive around town on my lunch break and see if I can score a copy somewhere. Just wondering if anyone had theirs yet or found it somewhere.

EB Games here told me that the SHIPPING date is the 4th. They will have it in tomorrow. Their shipping hub is out of Huston so unless you go as far south as Dallas on your lunchbreak i doubt you will find it today :(

I went to 3 different places around here on my lunch, and no one had it yet :rolleyes: Why dont they start listing the IN STORE date instead of the release date??? Oh well, I just ordered it off Amazon.com and saved a few bucks :D Guess I can wait a couple more days, its just a game!

Back from lunch also, no dice. The guy said I would have my copy by 10:30am tomorrow. Then I'll have to wait until I get off work.

My buddies and I have been playing a copy of the chinese version...
makes modification a bitch, since none of us speak chinese

I have almsot zero experience with the GT games, but I enjoy TT a lot...
takes a bit to get the leaning and cornering under control, and you have to be much smoother than in any of the GTs I have played.
Also, there is no money system, you 'challange' for all of your bikes, and win parts/riding gear instead of having to buy it.

All that having been said, I am a big fan of this game, lots of fun racing, and just messing around with Wheelies, Stoppies, getting the back end out, etc.
oh yeah, Busa's are scary as shit.

Just answer one question for me :
Can you add a turbo to the Busa, or is there anyway to acquire a turbocharged hayabusa? :D

^I kinda figured that, but that leaves TT2 open for a lot of additions :)

As far as I know, no turbos, the modifications seem limited to gearing, suspension, exhaust, and customizable riding styles/body postioning.
<again, don't speak chinese, havent complete all the races/etc, so dont know for sure>

Like I said, the Busa is scary fast, <even turbo-less> more than enough for my tastes
<mmmm 600>

Awww damn, well then this game sucks. I didn't know you couldn't mod the bikes to make them faster wtf? Busas aren't that fast in real life stock, I can't imagine how long it will feel in a game lol. Mine is a bore. :yawn:

The need to mod them isn't even that big, since every brand has at least one race spec'd bike already
<at least one doesn't sound good, but is there because a couple brands only have two bikes in the game.... the bigger companies have way more bikes, and thus more race ones>

modifying vehicles is the WHOLE appeal of the game to me. I though you'd be able to buy better brakes and ohlin's shocks and CF bodywork and shit like that. :( Suck. :eek:

Its about the SIMULATION aspect of real physics

What seeing this game really makes me want to do is see an equivalent based on the Forza platform.
The damage aspect would obviously be less significant in the gradual sense, but I wouldn't mind seeing a turbo Busa forget to brake for the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca and plow into a wall at a buck thirty.
That and I prefer the forza physics engine.
