  1. It looks to me some pretty hard changes like from spitting to thunderstorm, from light snow to snowstorm. I’m pretty sure there will be in between, hope so but even if not i don’t care. This looks plenty good enough to play.

    I love it how they are showing just a little more each time.

    I don’t think this game will be perfect but even with previous releases having some pretty nuts bugs (flying escudos and falling through holes in the scenery) GT has still been light years ahead of anything else. And now there is DLC or bug fixes so things can only get better.

  2. cvturbo

    what is the name of the car with no roof looks old fasion

  3. idlestation

    This made my day… just need to clean up my pants now.

  4. OOOOHHH MY GOD! THIS IS WAY TOO MUCH TO HANDLE. I’m buying 2 copies for gt at launch! The collectors and a regular copy…. enough said

    • madaz75

      Signature and Regular for me.
      Can’t pass up a chance to win an AMG SLS

  5. Fábio Marques

  6. Offical transcript of my reaction:

    Oh. My. God.
    Oh. My. God.
    Oh. My. God.

    Oh. My. God.

    • GTracerRens

      That’s the same reaction as mine. :D:D Cannot wait anymore!!!!

  7. - GT Satisfied -

    I will be playing this game up until, and maybe even months after GT6 drops…

  8. RacerS90

    Now THIS is pure Epicness!!!
    Polyphony Digital will go down in history! I’m gonna be raving about this till 11/2 and then some.

  9. King Goeres

    Oh my..

    In Kaz we trust.

  10. We’re gonna need someone employed fulltime just to pick up all the jaws of the floor!

  11. Gamer GT5

    The windshield wipers works!

  12. What’s the last car? VW Thing?!

  13. Mr Frappy

    So we have stunning cars, stunning tracks, and now some awesome weather…then you crash ;o) Just ragging ya’ guys, this looks great. Very impressed.

    However, I’m not so sure why people think that them removing that statement meant it was going to be a surprise. The whole “put the news up” and then “pull it down again” does not happen like that by accident. It was a staged stunt, which appears to have fooled many people!

  14. Craigles

    I cant really tell with the quality of these photos but anyway, great news

  15. My first thought was the WW2 German Kübelwagen, but I don’t think it had a split windscreen.

  16. WHAT DID I TELL YOU… EH? WHAT DID I SAY! STATEMENT RETRACTED TO GIVE US A SURPRISE! OMG YES! AND WHAT A HELL OF A SURPRISE IT WAS! AND WE HAVE WEATHER AS WELL! THANK YOU PD FOR WHAT’S PROBABLY GOING TO BE THE BEST GAME OF THE DECADE! AND I’VE ORDERED THE SIGNATURE EDITION (cos I’m a mug!)! SO, ALL IN ALL, I’M EXTATIC! APOLOGIES FOR THE CAPS… CAN’T CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT!

  17. Baggypants

    There are no words to explain how happy I am right now

  18. Gtkiller

    For those that didn’t see the video during the live stream you will be amazed when you see it. The effects are really great pd captured the essence of each effect properly. Even though it was a low Rez video it was easy to see the the behavior the water droplets on the windshield. The snow frost on the windshield, just beautiful.

  19. gtone339

    Best news so far, keep em coming.

  20. the big red dogg

    I have been waiting for months now just to see a legit video/picture of one drop of rain, sleet, or snow in this game and I must say, wow. Definitely impressive.

  21. Drummer 85

    please if anyone has seen the stream or please put some better pics up. have a woody woodpecker stuffed animal next to me. DONT LET ME DOWN. so stoked. read reaady ready. hel cant even type. THANK YOU LORD FOR ME BEING ALIVE TO PLAY THIS COME NOV. 2nd. sorry bout the caps but this…… i ….. we deserve this thank you all at gt planet and pd for making the greatest creation made ever.

  22. 172sport

  23. Holy poo, this is just amazing… I have Forza 3 so I can say this all I want; it just got laughed at :)

    • And for good reason. All the crap that Turn 10 said about PD will come back to haunt them.

  24. Oh lord. If I see anyone complain I will sock someone in the face.

    • Philmangt

      im going to complain……about not being able to play and that im not at tgs :P

  31. HugoStiglitz_420

    • You won’t believe it when you see it. It will be like seeing for the first time.

  32. Wow you don’t mess around getting the news up Jordan…already uploaded screens!!

    R*

  33. Well guys… It’s 07:05 here in the UK and I’m laid in bed soaking all this news up on my iPhone and my beautiful partner next to me, and all I want to do is cheat on her with Kaz. They put Really nice weather in. Ohhh I don’t need my skin mags anymore I’ve got this.

  34. jay gatsby

  35. Well, one can hope that the weather vid and shots hit the official GT site REAL soon! I don’t want to look yet but reading the comments on here and on GAF was really great! So much excitement!!!!!!!! It’s really on the damage situation that we are waiting on (final build etc etc).

  36. xSTRAIGHTEDGEx

    While i was watching the trailer

    I was going nuts!!!

    Im so happy

    GTPlanet<3

    GT5 (GT series) forever

    MUAH!!!!!

    XD

  37. hahahachungy

    whats the car that looks like an old jeep?

    • madaz75

      Looks more like an old Series 1 Land Rover if you ask me

    • RACECAR

      Its a old WW2 VW. Can’t recall the exact name, but its definately not a Jeep.

    • Belph3gor

      VW Kübelwagen.. i think

  38. ChunKie

    No comparison to any other game right now…the rain looks so real, looks exactly like how it is in real life when you’re driving on the highway when it’s pouring.

  39. Philmangt

    My Mind= Blown!!!!
    GT forever. Forza fans, you have to give it up to GT after that. i honestly expected the weather system to be similar to f1 2010, but to my surprise its even better.
    Kaz and PD, you never cease to amaze me! thank you

  40. Sum1s2pid

    There aren’t enough expletives to properly convey how awesome this first bit of news is.

  41. TJ berrick

    I SAW THIS VIDEO ON THE STREAM, OMG I NEARLY CRIED.

    • Same here. When it went to the first interior view at night with the rain hitting the windshield I got emotional. Thank you PD for listening to your fans and putting so much into this game.

    • I did.

  42. That’s quick info!
    From the “minuatures” .. it looks amazing

  43. organ-donor

    SPEECHLESSSSSS

  44. Best weather effects ever. Codemasters eat your heart out for claiming to have the best weather effects..

  45. Falango

    Even though those screen caps look really blurry, that rain on the windshield looks fantastic!!! Also, what is that in the last screenshot? Is that a Willys???

  46. anttwan

    Was that jeep in that one SS?

    • Belph3gor

      Don’t know but looked like that! or maybe the Volkswagen Kübelwagen.. not sure about the name

  47. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. Bandit1

    The weather in GT5 is going to be years ahead of another weather in gaming. Racing or not.

  49. great rain effect, i cant wait to see how affects the car handling.

  50. Marco G.

    that was superb. anybody noticed some ss11 hints?

  51. Cobolt60

    Amazing cant wait for the full definition

  52. Alex p.

    HAVE-NO-WORDS

  53. Jordan, hold me! I can’t take it anymore <3

  54. deep_sky

    That was….amazing. My expectations of GT5 have been so far surpassed it’s untrue.

    May we never doubt PD again!

  55. Marky264

    Simply looks beautiful! That Ferrari Enzo in the Wet Night Racing…

  56. Alex p.

    Niiiiiiceee!!!

  57. Can’t wait to see that trailer in high def.

  58. That weather was INCREDIBLE. Damn, I wish I had my screen capture software going during the video.

  59. dalejrfanfreak

    This is going to be the most massive racing game EVERRRRRRRRRRR!

  60. terminator363

    I LOVE GTPLANET!!

    • terminator363

      The awesomeness of this is amazing

      I can’t beleive how much better this is than FORZA 3

    • I’m sure, some MS-developers are eating their hats right now, because GT5 is so much better than what they planned for FM4! muhahahahaha :-P

    • Go away fanboys…

    • @Reims, lol, what do you expect, this is a GT site!!

    • infamousDee

      Why is everyone comparing this game to Microsoft’s arcade racer? :/

    • smthrlr

      I agree; this game look PHENOMENAL–is that a VW bus in one of those screenies? However:

      @ infamousDee–FM3 an arcade racer? No. When using advanced settings, I’ve been more challenged by the physics in that game than any GT game that I can remember. And I have thoroughly played them all.

      And Reims is right. Just beccause this is a fansite doesn’t mean that the first thing you fanboys should do is go bashing other stuff. Know what that is? It’s called insecurity.

      Because for the first time ever, your little “God’s gift to console racers” has some real competition in the market. And don’t think that because GT5 is finally due to be released, the battle is over. FM4 is coming.
