Gran Turismo 5 [2010] Tokyo Game Show Trailer: HERE

Here’s a quick overview of what’s been discussed in the TGS 2010 GT5 breakout session:

* Laguna Seca has been completely rebuilt and will return for GT5. Trial Mountain has also been confirmed.
* “Gran Turismo Anywhere” will allow you to manage B-Spec races, right from your computer. You’ll be able to hold B-Spec races with your friends from anywhere in what are called “Remote Races”.
* GT5 will feature a series of special events such as the Karting Experience, the AMG driving school, The Stig Challenge, Jeff Gordon NASCAR School, Sebastien Loeb Rally Challenge, and Gran Turismo Rally.
* Point-to-point rally stages will be automatically and randomly generated – you’ll have to depend on your co-driver to give you the best instructions about the road ahead.
* Rally mode can be played either on or offline.
* Weather changes include temperature differences, air pressure changes, and humidity, affecting the surface conditions of the track dynamically.
* Weather conditions are randomized. Forecasts for your race will be available but may not be entirely accurate, just like the real world.
* Polyphony Digital has helped Red Bull Racing’s Adrian Newey design the X1 Concept – an “ultimate” racing car, free of any technical regulations.
* Polyphony Digital has worked to improve engine sounds.
* Yamauchi admits that, in certain situations – such as standing race starts in the rain with 15 other cars on the screen kicking up spray in front of you – the game may not be able to hold 60FPS. Otherwise, it will strive to hold 60FPS as often as possible.
* The Volkswagen Kubelwagen, which has a drive system like the first beetle, and the amphibious Volkswagen Schwimmwagen will be in the game.
* Many things didn’t make the cut in Gran Turismo 5, and work on Gran Turismo 6 has already begun.


Prize car list:

INB4 It will never come out.

Cannot wait!

already pre-ordered. 3D tv time now

What version did you pre-ordered? I pre-ordered the collector’s edition at CC Gamestop. I want a 3D tv too…

What are the price points? I will prob grab the collector’s one if its under $80.

collectors is 99 on amazon. I think it only comes with extra literature…

I got the regular edition pre-ordered as a gift. I can’t wait. Although I wish I could wait fro the prices of 3D tvs to come down more.

Yeah, it’s $99.

You don’t really need to the collector’s edition, unless the you want to collect the book.

Hmm, so if I preorder trough Amazon I get a “Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Stealth Model,” Best Buy its the “Nissan GT-R GT500 Stealth Model,” Walmart is “Honda NSX GT500 Stealth Model,” or through GameStop a “McLaren F1 Stealth Model.” I think I am going with GS, even though I despise that store and their policies.

Definitely a nice looking game.

sweet. It all looks great, but I’m still frustrated, I was bit by the bug for this game 2 years ago, I don’t need any more teasers.

man that shit looks pretty fucking cool. call me a gay domestic fag, but i really want this to have a drag strip. i love drag racing my friends online.

the last one did, so i’m sure its in there.

Im pretty pumped…The new videos of the rain and shit on the windshield look insane…along with the karting and track editor…I need to order a new wheel though…I fudged my g25 when I made an ebrake for my rig…

" Polyphony Digital has worked to improve engine sounds."

Thank god, because in the real world a Ruf CTR2 sounds just like a turbocharged Miata, or a GT40, or a 350Z… At least according to the last couple renditions of this game…

Pre-ordered, oh yeah.

I couldn’t agree with you more. Every car sounded the same in all the previous renditions of the game. They better have fixed that shit.

The most realistic driving simulator in the world…as long as its on mute.

Not the most realistic driving simulator in the world by far, but on console? Probably.

This is PS3 only yeah? Fuck I need it. I’m getting it.

i couldn’t agree more… i think a drag strip in the game would be the tits… in the opening sequence of forza 3 they show one but i cant seem to find it in the game anywhere.
