Okay, so we still don't know if Gran Turismo 5 will be released in 2009 – despite all relevant evidence – but at least we've got a horde of new info.
According to GTPlanet , the assortment of fresh details is absolutely mind-boggling. The game will feature 1,000 vehicles (including 170 Premium new models), 60 total courses with 20 more to be revealed, a completely new physics simulation system with the benefit of damage representation, online play that features text/voice chat, private rooms, and even a YouTube replay output, a robust Photo Mode, the brand new Gran Turismo TV, and oh yeah, custom soundtracks! There's no doubt that this will be the biggest and most accomplished GT title yet, and we're all sorts of pumped; we're gonna start creating a bad-ass playlist right now! We also like the added benefit of online play (something the series desperately needed), and although we still have reservations about the damage modeling, it's all for the sake of realism and authenticity. We also still believe the game will be on store shelves for the holidays; the announcement should come at the Tokyo Game Show next month.
Really, who's going to complain about a lack of content in GT5? The sheer amount of cars, tracks, and overall menu options is just plain insane .
