In a recent interview between president of SCE Worldwide Studios and Playstation Europe, it was confirmed that Gran Turismo 5, due Nov 2, is set to feature weather effects, track editor and even go-karts. Legions of GT fans have been complaining about the game being delayed, but the fact that a single racing game has over 1000 cars, Head Tracking, Three Levels of Vehicle Damage, Night Racing, Car Rollovers, Nascar, Rally, 20 tracks with 70 variations, 3D support, Top Gear Test Track, Sparks, Pebbles and more, probably takes some time.
What can we look forward to when Gran Turismo 5 releases on PlayStation 3?
Gran Turismo 5 will offer gamers an experience more rich, more in-depth and more exciting than they might expect – even from a series as closely identified with innovation and invention as Gran Turismo. Not only will Gran Turismo 5 deliver an even more comprehensive set of cars and courses than gamers saw with previous iterations, it will also feature new game-enhacing graphical effects such as damage, night racing and weather.
These innovations are twinned with the option to join millions of like-minded individuals globally within the Gran Turismo community and to find a driving experience to suit, whether that is taking on the Top Gear test track, chucking cars around stunt arenas, go-karting, creating and sharing your own track or intense head-to-head races. Who, where and what to drive is completely down to the individual.
This time around Gran Turismo is likely not just to be the definitive driving experience but a definitive gaming experience full stop. “
Gran Turismo 5 will be released in the US, November 2, 2010 exclusively on the PS3
