Believe it or not, it made it (I actually played a bit of it last night, but was too inebriated to really offer any cohesive thoughts today :P). Gran Turismo 5
is out today, and to celebrate ahead of posting up our review (coming soon), we have the official launch trailer for the game from Sony and Polyphony Digital.
Obviously there isn't much to reveal here; just more to show off in the way of the game's impressive visuals, its mammoth car list, track list and features list in typical Sony "flash" style. I wonder how many people took the day off work today to get behind the wheel?
Watch the trailer embedded below, or click here to download it

Bought the $129 collectors like a sucker ... shoulda got the $77 standard from Harvey Norman. Even then id be a bit like meh ...... Games are more hype than good these days. (like COD:BO)
Classic example of 99% looks, 1% game play.

... At least you were wearing shorts Teq.
The fun starts when you unlock the Elise challenge around the Topgear test track (lvl 8?)
Still waiting on my wheel (ordered 2 weeks ago when the release date finalised)

I know, I especially love the harsh, angular, polygonal wheel arches.

F*** YOU POLYPHONY!
It's obvious old mate dropped this project to help with the development of the R35.
Game feels like a polished version of Prologue, so it's a polished turd.
Wish they had a decent wheel for Xbox 360. I'd go back to Forza.

Forza 3 > GT5
p.s. teq is a chump.

-duly accepted if it I was at fault during impact but if AI causes it and the gamer is the one disqualified.. that doesn't bode very well.
Loading times - even saving game files on HDD still takes awhile.
Another minor complaint - shadows look really "jaggy", maybe it could be deliberate on developer but it kind of ruins the glorious look of the cars.
Besides that I think the game is absolutely glorious and epic in it's contents. Game play is miles ahead of every console-based competitors.
Haven't tried going on-line but I'm hearing still a lot of issues and that a patch will be available.

I think this quote from one of the reviews on meta-critic sums it up well for me:
Posted 08:27am 27/11/10
now that i'm a bit older and have more appreciation for different cars than just the R34 GTR
pretty much how i played GT4 was buy an r32 gts-t and get enough cash to buy an R34 GTR then mod it to the f*** and race as many races as i could with it and get bored because i didn't want to drive any other car lol

Racing with forza AI is like racing with a professional. Racing in GT5 is like racing a 12 yr old in a go-kart. Which is funny because you can get go-karts in GT5...
Anyway my main gripe, im not ussually a graphics over gameplay guy, but this is horrible

..Anyways truly an epic game is GT5 and enjoying every bit of it, cars and trucks not only look spectacular but the physics is just outstanding.
I'm sure with GT5 selling by the tons doesn't really need any marketing, but do want to see an advert on the tellie.. so when are we going to see one Sony?
