Gran Turismo’s iconic “Photo Mode” has captured the imagination of hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people since it was first introduced in GT4, but one important little feature has always been missing – the game has never officially supported ways to take photos of cars’ interiors.
It’s a limitation which has baffled Photo Mode enthusiasts in our community, especially given the remarkably detailed interiors included in GT5’s and GT6’s “premium” cars. There are, of course, some ways to peek inside, but the well-known zooming “glitch” has many limitations and isn’t known to the average player.
This is finally set to change in GT Sport. “In Race Photo Mode, yes,” you will be able to take pictures inside of cars, Kazunori Yamauchi confirmed in a statement to GTPlanet.
Interior photography joins the impressive new “Photo Scapes” feature in GT Sport, which seamlessly renders the game’s 3D car models into real photographs. Although it’s starting to look like GT Sport won’t feature 3D “Photo Travel” locations (like Kyoto, which gave us Jenkins the Cat), perhaps Scapes and Interior shots will satisfy Photo Mode enthusiasts for now.
