    all i can say is im amazed as a long time player of all versions of GT it still amazes me how much detail they can cram into these games. Nov 3rd here i come

    Who would get any other game around this time (except mabey lbp2) but im sure that will be everyones 2nd choice to gt5.

    I reckon lbp2’s sales will be slow and then suddenly burst forward just like it did before (lbp1) with people getting it for christmas, christmas money or just being plain rich.

    Gt5 on the other hand will allways be a fast seller right up to gt6.

      People keep asking me if I’m going to get CoD black ops & I just laugh at them because it comes a week after gt5. I love shooters too but with CoD, if you have 1 you have em all, I’m in no rush

    Id say realtime weather will only be on real world tracks or tracks based on real world locations. i dont think original tracks will include this feature… perhaps with a patch.

    id imagine gt6 will have weather for all tracks. and all cars have interiors. with a full livery editor.

    eneos sc430(supergt),Opel insignia and toyota corolla(supergt)(probably)

    I sit here looking, at the verge of tears.
    Fearful that I will wake up from this beautiful dream and be forced to face the reality that this is all but a fabrication of my mind.
    Kazunori Yamauchi-san, I will never doubt you again.

    bad news this is from the page oofficial page of gran turismo
    Dynamic Weather System
    Experience Real-Time Weather Changes with Realistic Rain (Good thing cars now have working wipers)

    In addition to the time transition feature announced at E3 in June, where you can experience the day to night transition of time during a race, Gran Turismo 5 will also have real-time weather changes on select tracks.

    Factors like temperature, pressure and humidity are all calculated to help simulate weather conditions that change dynamically. Rainfall will alter the course scenery and conditions, changing the dynamics of the race. Combined with new visual effects like time transitions and realistic tire smoke simulation, Gran Turismo 5 offers a detailed and immersive racing experience like no other.

    Just imagine racing as the early evening sky turns purple. You start to see sprinkles of rain hit your windshield. Rain drops are lit by headlights ahead of you, and mist from the tires of the car in front of you blankets your windshield. You hit the wipers to clear your view of the road and get back to the task at hand: finishing the race and hopefully coming in first.

    *Note that not all courses will incorporate these visual effects.
    *Note that windshield wipers will only operate on premium model cars.

    That angle of the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca looks terrible, makes the famous part of the track look flat and lame. That steering wheel looks like it belongs in the Knight Industries Two Thousand. I like it! Enough with the frickin tree crying already. Really, you want better detailed trees? Im glad he sucked the trees dry of every last drop of “moisture” he could get away with and gave that processing power to the cars. You guys give a whole new ridiculous meaning to “Tree Hugger”.

      You’ve questioned PD’s accuracy on track!!! LOL. Well, it’s just the wide camera effect, so don’t worry. And plus PD make one of the most accurate track model around next to Iracing.

    the rainy weather looks so good. the citroen must be a beast assuming they didn’t do anything incredibly stupid like reduce the horsepower. It makes sense that the McLaren MP4-12C is in GT5 since they got the McLaren badge finally & it’s an amazing & gorgeous car so I hope to see it

    1. IronM@sk

      And if you think about it, the Mclaren wouldn’t even be in the same class to be matched in a race with the rest of those cars.

    Holy crap, La Sarthe at Night. Thats the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Nothing comes close. can’t wait to see the Ring at night.

  10. grog

    Pictures 10 and 11 look like the new layout for Eiger, which they said they were going to change. It looks like they changed the last couple corners after the tunnel (except the final corner).

  11. Carbonfibre

    With these shots I definitely felt some of that GT5 magic coming across.

    I’ve seen the cockpit of the Citroën GT a hundred times but looking at that hud again today (resembling the cockpit of a fighter jet) made me think. PD really has mastered both pen and sword with this alliteration of the GT franchise.

  12. dearlybeloved

    the first screenshot is trial mountain… and how could i tell it was trial mountain? because of the blimp!! that blimp has been around since the first game, funny that eh!?

  13. Stockmyster

    Wooow
    looks like the day before a race all peaceful, until we start ripping up the track
    i’m soo excited
    hopefully see u all on the track ;)

    1. Fred

      I think is Trial Mountain, I remember the big ‘baloon’?? in the air in previous version although I don’t recall seeing a lake.

    2. grashopper

      ha spelled my name wrong on post one. Anyway I was thinking maybe TM but the lake got me too. If that is the case looks like TM was rebuilt ground up again.

    3. gumbidave

      It’s most definitely Trial Mountain – and the best part is the guys on the boat are on the lake! (look really closely)

      Does this mean we will see the Monkey on the branches between the two tunnels on the other side of the track as well?!?

  14. CJ

    Question. Is the Citroen GT racer the Adrian Newey ‘regulation-free’ race car? Or is that supposed to be a Formula 1-style single-seater?

    1. gtpanoz

      The Citroen looks pure evil. I have this thought of it running down Bill Gates while Enter Sandman is playing..hahaha!
