    I was traveling home yesterday and was browsing the news stand in the airport waiting for our flight and noticed in big bold red letters "GRAN TURISMO 5" on the cover of a magazine on one of the racks. The magazine is called PlayStation The Official Magazine, and featured a 10-page article on GT5 as well as a tear out folded up poster of the game's cover.

    As I browsed through the article, several things caught my eye, but perhaps no more so than the following quote:

    I figured there would already be an in-depth discussion about this here, but after browsing and searching this forum I was unable to find any mention of this news.

    If this has already been brought up, feel free to ignore this. :)

    BTW: Happy New Year GTPers!


    Edit Update: Pics & links to 3648x2736 originals

    PS: Seeing as I bought it I figured I would browse through the magazine and I must say they clearly have a witty editorial staff. Here is one of the responses from the "Letters" section:

    :lol:

    BTW: For those curious, I bought my copy from the Hudson News shop just past Gate 14 in Terminal E at the Houston International Airport in Texas.

    Awesome, going not only 210 (NASCAR), but also 245 in a circle!


    Just fooling. I would love to take some of the Indy cars around the city tracks. Seattle jumps anyone?

    Edit: Wait, this is OPM? I thought that wasn't out until the 16th or something.

    Well, he apparently got a copy, unless more than one magazine has a GT5 cover special this month.

    I'm not an IRL fan by any means, but that would be a fun race.

    First of all, welcome back.

    Had my copy come in the mail already I would be all over this. If you didn't buy it or don't have the time to make scans/pics I will as soon as I get my copy in the mail (I hate my local postal service). EDIT: I see you did as I was typing. :tup:

    I know you are joking, but since merging with Champ Car IRL has been trying to keep a fairly even split between ovals, natural terrain road, and city street courses, to a degree that I would argue it is one of the best balanced racing leagues. This actually opens up speculation for a lot of cool American tracks.

    Of course, Indy, Infineon, and Twin Ring Motegi could be what they mean by IRL tracks. I am hopeful that we will see some other courses like Mid-Ohio, Watkins Glen and maybe even St. Petersburg and Long Beach. And if they added Texas and Homestead then that would be two more oval/road hybrid tracks.

    Here is the schedule if anyone wants to see the various tracks that can be speculated on. http://www.indycar.com/schedule/
