New GT5 Trailer, Screens, & Info From Taiwan Press Event

Gran Turismo 5 159 October 15, 2010 by

Sony hosted a Gran Turismo 5 press event in Taiwan (presumably scheduled before the delay) where a few more new details and screenshots were revealed. Most notably:

  • You’ll be able to select clothing for your A-Spec driver (though, according to the introductory message found in this screen – as translated by our own wkhnky once selected you won’t be able to change it again).
  • The online portion of the game will be connected to “Global Servers”. While it is not entirely clear what this means, it likely indicates that different versions of the game (NTSC, PAL) will be compatible with one another. As you may recall, in GT5 Prologue, in online events you would only be matched with other players using your respective version, preventing US players from playing with those from Europe, and vice-versa.
  • The Gran Turismo 5 “Racing Pack” will be sold in China as well as Japan, but the Chinese version also gets a unique GT-branded glass, humorously described by Google Translator as a “specimen collection cup”.

Take a look at the screenshots below for more (via Gamer.com.tw), including game menus and B-Spec mode controls. Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
