Although it didn’t top our staff poll for best Gran Turismo game, GT4 is nonetheless among the best — and best-remembered. Like GT2, its large and wild car list introduced the world to all sorts of bizarre machines that hadn’t twitched the needle beyond their own circles.
Last week we told you about the first ever Nissan Skyline GT-R, which made its debut in 1969. For this week’s Want, we’re moving the narrative ahead a few generations to continue the GT-R story with the R32.
Owners of the renowned R32 Nissan Skyline GT-R will be pleased to hear that Nissan has announced a initiative to help keep their rides on the road. Under the Heritage Parts Program Nissan will be producing authentic OE-spec parts specifically developed for its classic sports cars.
The latest GT5 update, v1.08, has just gone live in Europe and North America (it became available in Asia earlier today). According to Polyphony Digital, this small patch only fixes one issue that has become something of a hot-topic in our forums over the past few days. Known as the “SSR7 glitch” or the “online money glitch”, it allowed players to quickly accumulate a lot of money and A-Spec experience points – check the video above to see how it was done.
GTPlanet user NISMO_GTR_ noticed something looked a bit odd when he flipped his Mine’s R34 Skyline: Phillips-head screws, an AUTOart logo, and a bit of text that read “1/18 Nissan Skyline R34”. AUTOart, of course, is a large manufacturer of die-cast car models – a popular feature around the Polyphony Digital offices.
The PlayStation BETA event I told you about was finally held this past weekend. GTPlanet reader Adam Lang was first on the scene, and has been kind enough to provide us with lots of videos and screenshots from the GT5 demo on display. Most notably, you’ll see a much-abused Enzo Ferrari show heavy damage to its front bumper, along with an Audi R8 and the MOTUL R35 Skyline JGTC car. He’s also provided a lot of (literal) screenshots of the demo, so you can get a higher-resolution look at gameplay.
