both MT and ID can co-exist...2 popular racing games are too few to fill the space...

these 2 are so much ahead in terms of branding over the other racing games that even if game development makes some missteps...fans are going to "forgive" them and look fwd to the next version...which means they shd continue to exist in the foreseeable future...

Wow...I just saw a Jellybean(A80 Supra) in the trailer video I watched...Hope they have an A70 Supra...I'm down to try out ID5...I used to bounce back and forth from ID3 and MT....ID4 was too different from ID3, I think that was it's biggest downfall, but ID5 looks to be better...I'll still be playing MT though!

In SG..Wangan and ID are usually beside each other. Yeah, there was a great hype about ID5 when it first came out in SG. Most of the Wangan players went to the ID machines to check it out - even I played a game.

But I feel that the fan base of ID in SG cannot be compared to the fan base of Wangan in terms of size(excluding players who play both regularly).

Also, even if there are, for a time, more ppl at the ID5 machines (as compared to the Wangan machines), ultimately, the Wangan machines are filled almost every minute of the arcade's opening hours. ID 4 and 5 machines are not filled with someone playing every half hour, at times. Maybe you can attribute this to the cost of playing such a new game, but even long after ID4 came out (before ID5 of course) no one actually played ID4 much.


@Threadstarter: I agree with Maxx. Humans by nature are curious. It was pretty illogical for you to say that.

If SegaRosso had developed ID5 then yeah, Maximum Tune would've been extinct before you could blink an eye.. however the fact that crappy Sega made it, means Namco has no competition and is sitting quite pretty.

They're the same thing man.

It's called subsidizing.

Plus the physics of ID5 and Maximum Tune are totally different (of course)

So i don't think we will ever be rid of either/or

I mean sometimes we feel like we need to take corners at 80-100kph and other times we feel like doing it at 250kph

I thought ID5 only had few more maps than ID4, alot of people stopped playing ID4 and it should take a while for people to concentrate on ID5 since they probably stopped from playing ID4.. well this is what i think.
I wouldn't stop playing wmt for id because i find wmt is more fun and i alot of money in wmt, would be dumb for me to waste money on starting another game

as a car dealer will say ...

I will not stop providing cars for WMMT ... would be dumb for me not to earn the money by joining a game that doesnt earn a cent ...

Probably more realistic. (Even though w/out the clutch, but that's OK)

Since WMMT represents the actual basics of gear shifting, rather than in Initial D, which is just Low or High.

If we want to drive a car on a mountain road with no traffic, we'll play ID. If we want traffic and highways, we'll play MT. Simply put, people's tastes are going to differ. There will always be fans of one that won't necessarily be fans of the other. Apples/ Oranges. They occupy two niches. Like saying one bird that eats fish will make another one that eats mice extinct because they are both birds and they occupy the same territory. Doesn't make much sense.

I'd take it to a real canyon if i really wanted to. No need for ID.

I'd wait until 2AM-ish and hit the freeway. RL > Video Games

;)


I don't think MT will die out, it has a big fan base and is very popular right now. Will ID5 put MT out of business? no. It's a different game, different style. I think if someone gets tired of playing MT, they'll take a break and jump on ID for a game or two. Or maybe they wont play ID at all. everybody is different.
