Gran Turismo Demo at 4K Resolution Described as “Absolutely Stunning”

Gran Turismo 5 66 October 17, 2012 by

Polyphony Digital’s demonstration of a Gran Turismo tech demo running at “4K resolution” made quite a splash when it hit the news a few weeks ago.

The demo is on display and available to the public at the “Dramatic 4K Experience” hosted at the Sony Building in Tokyo, Japan, and hands-on impressions of the game are starting to appear around the web.

Aside from some screen-tearing and “pop-in” issues likely generated from the demo running on four independent PlayStation 3 consoles, the reviews are generally positive.

User “spats” on NeoGAF summarized his comments, describing the demo as “absolutely stunning”:

I’m giving off a negative impression but it really was absolutely stunning. The tunnel section in Eiger running at a 4K res and 60fps was some next level stuff.

Spats also shared gameplay footage of the demo in the YouTube clip above, though the benefits of 4K resolution will obviously not be apparent in such a video.

Keep in mind a version of this 4K game was first demonstrated back in 2008, and is unlikely to include any new features or changes which Polyphony Digital has or may be planning to implement for Gran Turismo 6.
