Gran Turismo 5’s “My Home” Online Features Announced (UPDATE: More Screenshots)

At the Sony TGS 2010 press conference, Yamauchi gave a brief overview of some of the new online functionality in GT5 – including web-based account management known as “Gran Turismo Anywhere”. Here’s a quick overview of what he said, via 1UP’s live blog. I’ll provide more specific details when they’re available.

UPDATE: New pictures, thanks to CoolColJ!

overview of Community Functionality: He says they haven’t talked much about these features before. But from the My Home section of the game, you’ll be able to access Messages, Logs, Mail, Profile, A personal lounge, photo album, course album, gifts and a friends list.

Messages can be 140 characters. Man Twitter has really taken off in Japan. It’s even influencing GT5.

You’ll be able to access the my home from the My Home section.
I mean you’ll be able to access the My Home section from the web.

There’s going to be a live timing monitor, something called PS3-B-Spec accesible from your browser.

Project “X1 Prototype”
He says that there are rules and regulations in all forms of racing. What would a car that didn’t have to worry about those rules look like?
Showing a movie of the X1. It looks kinda like a Batmobile.

So the X1 will be in GT5, and that’s it for the game.

    Someone in the pictures asks for someone else to clear some of his liscence challenges and the guy talking about the BMW said about changing lane which could be to do with drag racing or something?

    In the first picture in the top post on the message board they say ‘someone clear these for me already’ when talking about licence tests. I don’t know if they are just joking or is it implying we be able to do licence tests for other people? I would hope that each person has to do the licences individually but maybe they can view the onboard camera of you doing it if they want to get some tips.

      I think it was just a figure of speech. Having the ability to let someone else complete the tests would defeat the purpose.
