Have to say I wasn't much looking forward to this game, there's only been 1 Gran Turismo game I've ever really enjoyed and that was Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec on the PS2.....but since Gran Turismo 5 now has a seemingly firm release date I've been reading up on it properly and I tell you what it's looking like one epic game. The graphics are phenomenal and the gameplay is typical Gran Turismo. But there looks to be so much more to this game with the online elements they're introducing to the series and the photo mode etc. I'll be 'importing' this from ebay when it sees light of day for sure.

Are we looking at a 10/10 racing game I wonder ?

certainly looks impressive

November release date :-(

E3 2010 Trailer - News - gran-turismo.com

One of the new features added for the very first time in Gran Turismo 5, is support for 3D and face tracking

Using 3D compatible televisions such as the Sony 3D BRAVIA series with 3D glasses, you can experience an ultra-realistic sensation like never seen before.

The other major feature is a unique face tracking function using the USB camera, PlayStation®Eye camera for PlayStation®3.

By using facial recognition with the PlayStation®Eye, you can move your face to the left and right to move your field of vision while you are driving in a race.

3D and face tracking are both innovative features by themselves, and combined together, an even richer, high quality world of Gran Turismo 5 is made possible.

By moving your face parallel in front of the screen, you can change your field of view. This makes possible a sensation as though you are actually inside your chosen car.

You'd tend to think so given the amount of development time it's seen.....but on the flip side it's like it better blow you away given the amount of development time it's seen! How long's it been now ? 4 years or 5 ?

All I know is the last major Gran Turismo was during the height of the PS2 era so it's been a long time in coming. And in the time since we've had 3 Forza games on the 360 so GT5 has a lot to live up to and a lot of expectation to meet. Personally I think it'll be above and beyond everyone's expectations based on what I've seen and read - IF it comes together at the end....but then again it's Gran Turismo so it's not going to be a shit game, which only leaves 1 other possibility and that's what it's looking for all the world like and that's awesome. ;)

Why not do what I'm going to do ? Get the yank version of the game off ebay delivered from Surrey lol. That's what I'll be doing if I ever pull the trigger on Demon Souls and unless this is out a day or so after the yank version I'll be doing it with this for sure. PS3 will play it fine regardless.

If this game is anything less than perfection then Digital Polyphony deserve a massive kick in the testicles.

I can't wait, when does the 360 version come out though? ;)

Wii Fit 360, lol.

Did you ever think that Devil May Cry or Metal Gear Solid would appear on the 360?

You never know.

True that, I suppose you never say never in some respects and some former exclusive games do wind up multiplat just look at Pro Evo Soccer that used to be PS exclusive at one point but now is multiplatform, but saying that MGS on the 360 didn't surprise me at all, reason being that MGS2 was on the Xbox after all and to be fair MGS Rising while technically a MGS game it is still a far cry from the MGS4 that every Xbot wanted and there's a few reasons for that the main ones being needing a stupid amount of discs and more specifically the slew of Apple product placements within the game. Were those not the case I do think MGS4 would sit quite happily on the 360.

I guess Wii Fit 360 isn't so far fetched after all, you could use Kinect right there in the convenience of your attic to pretend to do some very real excercises! ;)

I'll have you know I was at the gym today.

But I'm making up for it now with my Beer/Cider health shakes. :)

Lol well I guess you'll need it to walk inside a building full of contraptions where the only butter on the door is sweat - mind you last time I was at the gym I spent all my time on the bikes and the leg weights, that's why people affectionately nickname me Louie now.....as in Lou Ferigno pmsl. Some just call me Hulk for short though. ;)

yeh that is an option m8 but that would depend on when the uk release date.. if its 2-3 weeks then i would probably wait. also if there any dlc for this game how would it effect a yank copy on a uk ps3?

I imagine just do as everyone else does and create a seperate account on your PS3 specifically for yank stuff....cos we get nobbed with PSN stuff American version has tons more quality stuff esp when it comes to PSOne classics - Medal Of Honor, Resi 2, Dino Crisis, Syphon Filter 2 and that's just a few....god knows what else we are probably missing.

But yeah I imagine DLC meant for yank games probably won't work on UK PSN accounts but obviously don't quote me on that lol. *EDIT* Just done a google search for myself since you did make a good point that I'd basically overlooked and it turns out that it looks as though my assumption is correct in that imported foreign game downloadable content will not work on UK accounts due to region code mismatch. So if you import then you're pretty much screwed unless you fancy playing said game permanently on a fake sub account.
