With all the new information coming thick and fast, I’m finding it hard to keep track of what features are confirmed, what are rumours and if a feature is new or previously known.
In an effort to gather all the information we know is confirmed for GT5, based on presentations from PD, advertised within official trailers and confirmation from official documents, I present the Master Feature List.

Note: This is not a wish list.

Disclaimer: Although every attempt to keep this list as accurate as possible, it may contain incorrect information thanks to the secretive nature of PD. I don't particular want to be everyones worst enemy if this is quoted in some blog, then turns out to be wrong!

Sources :
If stating something that is missing from the list, please provide a source is possible. I will update sources over the next few days.

The only Official Cover.
Note that a black car version of this cover was shown in the The Official Playstation Magazine.

:

- Two versions of the game, one premium and one standard. This is most likely to relate to DLC, such as additional tracks and cars.
- Wind tunnel & Dyno as shown in teaser trailer, source
- 3D as shown as a technical demo in CES 09 & CES 2010 Now confirmed!
- Rewind, as quoted from Kaz with a very vague translation.
- Livery editor as mentioned a long long time ago in presentation.
- Live track weather, no idea where this came from initially but note that GT5P does mention weather conditions of tracks from around the world.

Thanks for making this thread. Excellent. I'm always looking for a refference as to what we know so far but never been bothered to go through pages of news. Good one. Mods don't lock this thread its brilliant.

I believe the cars are 500,000 Polygons from memory.

I thought the models were 400k polygons?

The chances are they will be downscaled (Whats the correct term?) So they will be more like 250-300k poly ingame.

But they vary aswell i think.

Apart from that, good work :) Will you be updating it with sources for the info when new things come along? (And for existing features that don't have sources)

I will be updating sources, where needed. Might remove polygon count for the moment, until i see something official.

About the polygon count, I'm fairly sure it is actually 400,000... I heard it was 2 times more than prologue, which had 200,000

Top Gear TV was also included right?

It was definately included in GTTV in prologue, but i haven't seen it mentioned anywere that it will make it into GT5. If you can find a source showing otherwise, i'd love to know.

I would say its a reliable source, but 400k ingame does seem a bit much, seeing as Forza 3 has 200-250k models and it only handles 8 onscreen, i doubt The ps3 is capable of quadruple the calculations (double the polys on each car, double the cars, 4x in total), unless the GT5 engine is something very special.

Thank you for creating this thread. I was finding it very hard to find useful information like this of late.

How come Forza 3's cars has up to 250k polys, when GT5P's are far more detailed and claimed to have 200k?

It's a mystery to me. Although i have no evidence to back up my figure of 200-250k, thats just from memory, and i could be quite wrong. I believe the models in Forza vary greatly, for example the Audi R8 and Bugatti Veyron were modelled for the interiors aswell, which is probably where the 250k comes from. But i bet most are a lot lower.

Still, the R8 in Forza 3 is just almost as detailed is the R8 in GT5P. Odd indeed.

All the series are currently exclusive. So yes you can add that in.

Could simply be that the model is ever so slightly inaccurate i suppose. And that the spoiler doesn't come up... etc.

The main difference is the textures/effects/lighting on the cars (or use a 'wire-frame' mode), if you remove all those i bet the models would look the same.

Yeah, you're probably right. The lighting and shadows is far better in GT5P.

Are you sure, isn't WRC used by codemasters as well?

I'm not sure any are exclusive... Does iRacing have a NASCAR license (I'm assuming it does)? WRC is not exclusive like you said, as for the others i have no idea.

Not to be a grump, but if we could keep polygon chat to the other thread i'd be extremely greatful. :)

Thanks for the info so far guys, and thanks for the good comments, appreciated.

I'll have to look into this into more detail. It seems a little complex.

Is that much different to 'uploading replays to youtube'? Thx.

A lot. It's encoded video vs data to be replayed with the game engine.

Videos are large but can be watched by everyone, replays are small but you need the game to watch them and you can play around with the cameras, use them as ghosts...

WRC is not exclusive cause black bean games announced "WRC 2010" for ps3, 360 and pc, scheduled for q4 of 2010. However we can consider it exclusive cause the WRC in Gt5 is WRC 2008.. and that is exclusive cause there wasn't a WRC08, the last one was wrc05 rally evolved.

I guess it comes down to consider exclusive as being, I though exclusivity was bought on a yearly bases for this sort of thing, the other series may be in another game, but for a different year of the series. I could be wrong though.
