  1. Pisspoor qualty video, but from what I CAN see, the night racing and weather effects are going to be awesome. Now for a better quality vid.

  2. Spyhunter

    Did I see a VW Bus in there?! Sweet.

  3. Gran Turismo Vet

    This is one of those games where you ask yourself, how the eff did they make it!? I`m so glad to be a PS3 owner right now. Probably the best racing game of all time!!!

  4. fredyellowone

    It’s time to add a Firebird/Trans-Am car.

  5. AGNT009

    Now that we have dynamic weather, I have one more request. I plan on running a NASCAR and “Nationwide (using stock Cameros, Challengers, etc)” league. Since some of my races wont be on actual race day, I was wanting to take the race time temp of the last time NASCAR raced at that track so it feel like you had to endure the conditions you saw on the tv. What I mean by this, is that if Daytona was overcast and cloudy and 70 deg and 80% humidity at race time, Id like to start my league race with those base settings, then let the dynamic engine make up what happens as the race progresses. It would be nice, and it may already be in the game that way.

    Would it have killed them to give a definite car and track list THIS time? Dang PD, stop trying to preserve your game’s virginity until its wedding day, lol.

  6. Viktor Navorsky

    This game MUST be in THE GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDS as the one that has done the most significant and AWESOME things with a SINGLE blue-ray disc.

    OMG , a KOMBI! A SO WANT TO DO A SPEEDRUN in Nurbs with that thing… with a NIGHTMARE Weather and at night…

    I really dont care about the standard cars no more…the game is just PERFECT for me… right now, the way it is.

  7. Is this video really that good? You see, idiot me was going to check gtplanet before I left for work this morning and I was running late so I didn’t get a chance. Then I get to work and, well, you can’t get any videos to work at all. (It’s not fair I say!!). But I don’t think I have ever read more positive comments about any GT video ever. I won’t be home for another three hours. As a GT diehard, how will I feel when I finally see this video? I teared up when I watched the E3 video (wife thought I was nuts). Do I need to have a box of tissues for this one?

    • TTownEP

      Yeah. You should probably just take your laptop with you into the tub. It’s going to get messy.

      The video quality is terrible, but the content looks amazing, and will be awesome when we get it in HD, not recorded off of a projector screen

  8. can windscreen wipers break?

    I don’t care if it’s not an entirely realistic implemention, I just want to drift and make it fly. My childish side is taking over :D

  10. ElieTheStig

    rainy deep forest .. wooooowww ! snow on eiger north .. .wowwwww

  11. Holy mother! This is beyond anything i imagined, it looks amazing… Hope amazon can get this baby down here (Brazil) in less than a week….

  12. I hope PD will release lots of making of vids. There is so much detail in that game and i`m really interested to know how hard they worked to get all that in the game.

  13. BIakDragon

    How can people say it looks stunning?
    I can hardly tell what the hell is going on, I saw rain and snow(i think) and some interior views where I could’nt even make out the gauges.
    But, I have no doubt that when they finally put the video itself out in HD it will be damn near the most epic thing in the world.

    • BIakDragon

      Oh, I meant to say later in the movie it looks better but clicked submit first. Still though, will look so much better in HD

  14. Oli (Death783)

    love this game too much

  15. FrancisBenjamin

    at 0:47 it seems like a cockpit view of an old military wrangler jeep… and is that the VW transporter van aka the hippie waggon its racing??? LOL!!!!!!

  16. GTracerRens

    I am soo glad that I’ve already ordered a collector’s edition!! :D

  17. +1 for PD

  18. Simply Amazing!

  19. DirtyMudFlaps

    ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Craigles

    Ohhh myyyyy goddddd

  21. 0:48 – The legend that is the Camper Van!

  22. Sapphire-Wolf

    MY… GOD.

  23. steve_123

    fair play looks amazing, imagine BMW M3, leguna seca in the wet :P haha, also anyone notice the car spin at 0:35?? must be slippery haha nov 2 hurry !

  24. machine4321

    as the video started i wasnt thinkg it was all the hot……but then the tunnel exit happened. i was jaw droped speechless, and i mean that completly . I have never seen anthing so amazing looking before. I truly dont know if i can wait another month+.

  25. Thanks Jordan we have such a great webside with the best news and always updated for our amaaziing Gran Turismo 5! and all that will come, for sure.

  26. Turbo_3800

    Weather is what the fans have been asking for and PD came through and hooked us up big time lol. Looks really good too, but the rain on that night track looks like instant spin out in a RWD car & massive under steer in a FWD lol.

    • Hoepker

      Guess you’ll have to learn how to drive. lol

    • We already knew that since GT4’s Tsukuba wet. But maybe, with GT5’s new physics-engine it’s a whole new experience in the wet

  27. occasionalracer

    GT5 will undoubtedly set the standard (once again) for racing simulation on consoles and PC. I think everything looks so professional that it’s easy to forget this is a game. The PD team has put some serious effort into every little detail, and left nothing half-assed. This makes Forza look like cartoon.

    • HugoStiglitz_420

      are you (expletive deleted) joking? nothing is half-assed? WHAT ABOUT 80% OF THE (expletive deleted) CARS THAT AREN’T FINISHED!! besides that the game is very well put together & exceeds my expectations so far but they definetly half assed the cars

  28. Superb!!
    Simply now, it’s just perfect.

    But Trial Mountain??? Come on.. Apricot Hill is much better by far…

    • Turbo_3800

      Apricot Hill is good too, but we don’t know the full track list yet. So you can still cross your fingers lol

    • I hope that, I love that track with those long turns, linked turns and those descents..

  29. TTownEP

    OMG. I was not one of those people screaming for weather effects, but that video gets me excited. That looks amazing. I can’t wait to see the HD version.

  30. @47 secs….is that a vorsprung durch fartenbanger i see ? ie the volkswagen camper van ? if so im absolutely gobsmacked !!!!!

  31. Crazy, Amazing > WoW Q_Q

  32. My jaw dropped.. floored

  33. AGNT009

    Is it just me, or are the wipers notr actually “working” well. I can see that it tries to give the effect it wiped away the rain, but it appears more that the wipers are just passing over the window, and the rain drops, for the most part, look unaffected. I can imagine that was really hard to pull off, and its a valiant effort, but it seems only 50% functional IMO, and at high speed, that may get too unworkable to be truly fun. Reminds me, I need to change the wipers on my real truck.

    • MacAlert

      It’s just you. At the speeds the cars are traveling, the wiper can only handle so much at a time. Also, the car is getting sprayed by the car in front.

    • Big Ron

      I can see nearly perfect working wipers. In the video they show stormy rain all the time so you know, that stormy rain is too much for wipers also in real life. But most time, they do clean the windows for a second.

  34. pasigiri

    Okay …. I think complaints have been brought down a notch … or 10.

    THAT is TRUELY EPIC. IF car count is dropped from 16 to 8, I would not care. But 16 cars WITH those effects??? Unbelievable. I can’t wait.

  35. **** YES!!!!!

  36. twinspark24

    0:15 is insane
    I can barely wait any more

  37. Rovot12

    Yeah the video won’t work on the mobile site but I’m still excited!

  38. The weater is awesome and all

    But im more excited about the fact i just saw a VW Hippie wagon at 0:47 :o

  39. Steph290

    With this GT5, there shall be no more flame from the Forza Fanboys. Neither shall there be any opposition from Xbox. The war of the racing sims is over and Gran Turismo reigns victorious! ALL HAIL KAZUNORI! ALL HAIL GT!

    • Forza Fanboys, fall to your knees, and bow to the REAL KING!!

  40. Why is just me or something else, the video always like from cheapo camera. I can capture hd resolution better with my trusty camera & handphone.secretly.

  41. SNOWWWWW!!!

  42. djKyoto



  43. I showed this to my friend who has (and loves) forza 3 so much so he’s gotten 100percent complete on it… but after showing him this he said oh thats cool, but Im not into driving games anymore?
    you mean anymore after watching this?
    I ad no idea he was such a fanboy… he even said that gran turismo will be ‘ok’

  44. This is just amazing. Le Mans looked AWESOME.

  45. You have got to congratulate PD they’ve done an outstanding job on this game/simulation. 5 years and well worth the wait. The content – 1000 cars….over 100 tracks…the depth and detail is like nothing any game has attempted let alone accomplished before. I’m just so amazed they’ve managed to get it all on 1 bluray disc?

    Any idea when the HD video will be available???

    • Yes, now we can see, there was a reason for the long wait. It simply couldn’t be done any faster. Now imagine GT6 coming on 2 blueray-discs (probably):-D
      I’m still in a state of shock after all the news coming in since yesterday

  46. GTbyPlaystation


  47. Bankai123

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! That’s all i can say right now. *tears*

  48. I feel sorry for 360 only owners.

  49. stealmekey

    Jeep Wrangler at 0:23 and 0:46???

  50. I got the same thing that video show us
    got wet. lol

  51. SZRT Ice

    Cosmic… Epic is an understatement…

  52. Awesome… waiting for the official, hi-res version of it. And gameplay videos, of course.

  53. mitsifumi

    A time interval of 52-53s will show you a shock!!

    The GLOWING BRAKE Disc is your visbility!? This is seen! Are you also seen??????

    Please, see it immediately. Respond immediate.

    My excite is inappropriate – the video is of INCREDIBLE.



    • Big Ron

      glowing brake discs have been seen since….ever. So why is it a surprise to see it in GT5?

    • Ron maybe he is new to the series and has never seen that before.Maybe him getting excited about it will enhance his game experience.I guess what i’m trying to say is quit being an ass.

    • I’m still missing backfire and sparks coming from underneath cars scratching the surface :-(

  54. GeeTeeR

    0:46 Is that a VW Van?

    • Big Ron

      Man, watch 6 posts above yours and you will be enlightened. You should read the post before asking.

  55. 3 november need now!!

  56. Arsenalfox

    Does this mean if you are playing the Nascar Races, they will be Stopped because it is sprikling on the track? = race over…. If no then there goes the whole Sim part of the game :)

  57. and again stupid teaser video in poor qaulity, with some sg and no real gameplay. Why not to post hd video on cmon, stop teasing people PD!!!!!!

    • Big Ron

      even an idiot would realize that there real gameplay-scenes are included. Surely you can see the typical replay cameras

    • J-KiLLA24

      wow, another great gt5 video, another idiot with a stupid comment. If you had eyes you could have CLEARLY seen some scenes of real gameplay. GET THOSE EYES OF YOUR CHECKED.

  58. well just woken up blurry eye after losing most of hte night to flight control hd. remembered it was tgs, ran down stairs to the laptop.. and this.

    just fracking unbelieabale. this is just awesome. KAZ you are a legend. you suprassed my expectations ages ago. you have simply made what seems to be a ps4 game. theres way too much. but you have achieved it. roll on november….

  59. @0:47 is that a VW Kombi on the left?

    • Big Ron

      Yes it is. It is the VW Bully. Also confirmed is Volkswagen Schwimmwagen and Volkswagen Kubelwagen

    • Big question – will the Schwimmwagen actually swim? We’ve got lakes at Grand Valley, High Speed Ring and even Trial Mountain now. Maybe, it’s to early and we have to wait till GT6

  60. It’s stunning, absolutely stunning.

  61. You should really make a mobile friendly version of this site, I’m no where near a bloody computer at the moment !

  62. Big Ron

    Unbelievable, they get it to work at night. This is so atmospheric. I am happy to get weather in this realism.

    Bet video moment is, when the car gets out of the tunnel and the whole windscreen gets flooded with water.

  63. It won’t work on my iPod or the ps3 :(

  64. Wow!

  65. WHOA.

  66. gtone339

    Massive blowout right there. :)

    Also saw my fav prototype as well: Peugeot 908 hdi fap, audi r10 tdi,

  67. OMG! @ 0’46: its a fricken KOMBI!!!!!

  68. gnorman

    What do you reckon…restricted to premium cars only?

    Not a biggie for me but I know some of you will be peeved.

    There will be some caveat attached, don’t start creaming yourselves until you know the full details.

    • Sum1s2pid

      Too late. I appear to have creamed.

      Gah. Did it again.

    • infamousDee

      No one could care less about “Standard cars.”

  69. DoctorFouad

    Incredible ! unbelievable ! after 13 years since GT1, Polyphony did it again ! they are gonna revolutionize racing games another time again ! WOW just WOW !

  70. vigi147

    Glowing (front) brakes at 0:53? Rear ones i cant see because of the light.

  71. We still dont know if it is dynamic.
    If it was then I would send an email of gratitude to PD immediately.

    • organ-donor

      actually dynamic weather is confirmed for enduro races.

    • The weather is dynamic.

    • Paulpg87


      is it dynamic only for endurace offo course and available in fixed form for single races?

    • Of course it is dynamic. PD wouldn`t include that feature into the game if we would have to race a whole 24h endurance race in rainy weather.

      Now, please correct me if i`m wrong. GT5 will be the first racing game where we are able to drive a full length 24h race with weather effects and day/night cycle and ressources ? (ressources = drivers, tyres, fuel, damage, … )

  72. homerfreak

    now that’s awesome. Just came back from school in the break to see the trailer :D

  73. sickdog2009

    THIS IS AMAZING!!!! i almost had a tear in my eye it was so good

    • I actually did! Granted it was 7:30 AM so i was a might sleepy but DAMN, it was so good i went to bed with a huge grin :D

  74. speedemon08

    Lol :) Kombi……. But the weather is freaking awesome!!!!!!!

  75. Wow just look at that rain-splash on the windshield. And was that a VW hippiebus at 0:47?

  76. Gamer GT5

    I see why it took PD over a half a decade just to make this simulator

  77. Probably the most amazing videogame ever made in the history of mankind

  78. Sum1s2pid

    Holy [expletive deleted] on a [expletive deleted] sandwich with [expletive deleted] on top… and a side helping of [expletive deleted].


  79. Brothan

    Im stunned… now there nothing more to say… “The REAL Driving Simulator” Bring on november, signing my self up for a week of !!

  80. Rattlehead

  81. UrielEdge

    LAGUNA SECA !!!?!

    wow at night racing plus laguna seca?!?!

    wow & the rain plus night racing looks so intense

    everything on this trailer is perfect!


    • Gamer GT5

      I think that’s actually Circuit de la sarthe.

    • Gamer GT5

      Oh i think you’re right it is laguna seca. Nice!!!

    • TURNER_042

      the night bit is la sarthe. it shows turns 4 and 5 first ( under the dunlop bridge ), then it shows the Porsche curves. :)

  82. :P

  83. Can’t “wet” !

  84. carl finlow

    For those who still can’t watch the video, try a different browser. Safari wouldn’t let me watch it, but Chrome did.
    Outstanding night and weather, just outstanding.
    Bravo PD.

  85. Woggster

    That looks soo real!

    • Yeahhhh!! The rain drops just fall onto the windshield and were removed by the windscreen wiper immediately :D WOOOW

  86. OMG! Can’t wait!
