I really hope this is true, as GT5 is really the only driving game I'm interested in.

# 3 pfunk880 @ 07/31/09 05:39 PM

Also GT5 will feature NASCAR according to Game Informer. Maybe old news but exciting for me I'm a huge NASCAR fan and finally we might get a simulation of the sport.

On the latest 1UP podcast they say a major Sony game that people might not have been expecting this year, is in fact coming this year. This was followed by not very subtle hints like, engine noises from Garnett and John saying, "What are you driving at?". So yeah, GT5 coming this year, expect it to be announced at GamesCom next week.

I'll believe it when I see it.

It would be really nice if this game comes out this year. Hopefully this turns out to be true.

Despite it not making an appearance at Sony's Gamescom press conference, Polyphony Digital has updated its Japanese site with some new details on Gran Turismo 5. The translation has been difficult to get down pat, though some forumgoers, like BlackChamber at GTPlanet.net have been working to get everything straightened out.

From the sound of it, there will be 1,000 vehicles in the game, 60 courses, full physics-based realtime deformation damage on all cars with 170 of them also incorporating interior damage, a completely new physics system (with possible rollovers), an online replay album, YouTube support for uploading replays, custom soundtracks, and the return of Gran Turismo TV. One other curious note is that the PlayStation Eye can be used as a full 3D head tracking system, which would mean that not only does it track movement left and right, but forward and back as well, resulting in the ability to move your in-car view left, right, forward and back.

Now, the translation is a little rough, so it's possible that the 170 car bit with the interior damage is actually referring to only 170 cars having either an interior view or damage at all, though given Polyphony's adherence to perfection, this sounds a little odd. It makes more sense that some manufacturers might not want to show their dashboards being ripped to shreds, so we're hoping that it's referring to that feature and not a lack of interior views or damage on more than 80% of the vehicles.

More info is promised at TGS, though our folks at Gamescom are trying to track down official word on all of this and get it cleared up.

If this is the case, I may as well make an investment in the new Slim console. Playing Forza 3 and GT5 in the same year is an amazing thought.

Wow. This would be a nice Christmas present.
# 13 Whitesox @ 08/18/09 07:30 PM
I am in love. Actually, I was in love with GT5P. This will be amazing!

After this game is released, I will cease to have any form of social life - whatever small amount is left of it. Can't freaking wait.

Better be true or I'm going to off somebody. Just kidding.
# 16 gopadres @ 08/19/09 10:52 AM
Well my son gets Forza 3 in October (which I'll be letting him play his Xbox on the big screen and play with dad) so I really hope to get GT 5 in December.

Gran Turismo 5 Q4 2009 Release Date Confirmed

For those of you out there who still aren’t convinced of Gran Turismo 5’s pending 2009 release date, take a look at the game’s official brochure handed out at last week’s GamesCom convention. Snapped by RiseOfGames, the brochure was quickly translated by forum users – but you don’t have to be fluent in German to figure out what “4. Quartel 2009″ means.

Sweet, sweet confermation.

Can not wait. I guess it's time to think about that PS3 Slim purchase...
