Gran Turismo 5 will finally arrive this November, and to increase our anticipation for its release Polyphony Digital has released two new trailers.
The trailers show-off the game’s breathtaking visuals, varied environments and wide selection of cars. The new car damage physics are also on show and they look a whole lotta fun.
Electronic Entertainment Expo – better known as E3 – is the biggest date on the gaming calendar. The event was as big as ever this year and, unsurprisingly, it stole our attention for the best part of June. All the leading publishers were there promoting upcoming titles, hoping that they could impress us journalists enough so that we would enthuse about their projects to you. There is a lot of enthusing to be done.
The sound of heavenly singing is reverberating around Attitude Towers today. Normally the only sound we hear is DolphGB shouting, or Danny D asking to be let out of his cell, but today is different.
Gran Turismo Track Editor = confirmed = happiness. Bring on November 2nd.
It’s finally been announced! After years of development, several delays and (last time we checked) a bar tab of about $80 million – Gran Turismo 5 has a release date.
Guys and Gals, we kid you not.
It’s a tense time for Gran Turismo fans. With the Sony press conference a gnats foot away – the anticipation is that we will finally, finally (finally) get a release date for the game some …
This month, we’ve been skinning everything in sight in Red Dead Redemption, demonstrating our construction skills in ModNation Racer and making our boards do the work in Skate 3. But as much as we enjoyed these titles, our thoughts kept drifting to the future as we got excited about news of sequels to massive PlayStation exclusives. Here’s the rundown of May’s highlights…
Sony has set a release date for the first batch of updates to convert existing games into stereoscopic 3D. On June 10, updates for Wipeout HD, Star Super Stardust HD and Mr. Pain will be available on the PSN.
The great news is that updates for Wipeout HD and Super Stardust HD will be absolutely free, the bad news is that you will have to pay ¥300 (£2.26/$3.28 if converted accurately) to play Mr. Pain in 3D.
Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauch has been speaking about the current state of the much delayed Gran Turismo 5.
Please just release the game – please!
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue released in 2008, and it was a fair preview for the full game that has been delayed and delayed countless times.
Rest assured, we won’t be just getting more of the same when GT5 finally arrives, confirmed by Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi…
The upcoming release of PS Move and Natal, the motion sensing devices from Sony and Microsoft, has marked an interesting change in the way these two gaming institutions promote their consoles. It’s a shift because it’s the first time peripherals have taken centre stage for either company. Sony and Microsoft have traditionally taken a very conservative approach to console development, believing superior graphics to be the holy grail. When it comes to input devices both have been happy to stick with the trusted joypad.
Some new footage from Gran Turismo 5 has been leaked. The video, which shows a replay of a race between the magnificent McLaren F1 and other cars, really demonstrates Gran Turismo 5′s spectacular graphics.
You may ask, what does five years of development and a $60m budget give you? The answer can be seen in this footage; a game that actually looks realer than real.
A feature on Qore regarding the PS3′s 3D-enabling firmware update has led to reports that Killzone 2 will be getting a 3D update. Sony have since denied these reports.
Mixed news from Polyphony today as it is announced that – once again – Gran Turismo 5 is being delayed.
But is there a good reason this time?
David Cage, CEO and founder of Paris-based developer Quantic Dream, revealed last month that Heavy Rain was initially designed to be played with a motion based controller, and Cage hinted that the game could still end up with motion sensing support.
Well, Belgium mag Chief have confirmed that Heavy Rain will indeed be using the PlayStation Move.
One of the new features for the Gran Turismo series in GT5 is night racing.
Sony has now unveiled a new trailer that shows off what night racing has to offer in the game.
A brand new trailer has been released today showing of footage of NASCAR in Gran Turismo 5.
NASCAR will be one of the major brands to feature in the game, and in the video Polyphony Digital’s Kazunori Yamauchi takes a visit to a live race.
Massive Japanese publication Famitsu have listed their favourite games on the Japanese PlaySation Store.
At the top of the pile sits Valkyria Chronicles 2 then second is Phantasy Star Portable 2, both available on the PSP. Coming in at third place is Wizardry: The Labyrinth of Lost Souls, the highest rated PS3 title.
Famitsu also list their favourite PSOne classics with Final Fantasy VII unsurprisingly taking top spot.
Many of the selection are sadly not available in North American and even fewer make it as far as Europe. Are we missing out?
Digital Battle has formulated a list of the top ten most expensive game budgets of all time, proving that this generation of gaming is by far the most expensive ever.
There are five titles representing PS3 on the list through Killzone 2, L.A. Noire, Metal Gear Solid 4, Gran Turismo 5 and Gran Theft Auto IV. With a budget of 100 million dollars, Grand Theft Auto IV is way ahead at the top. Final Fantasy XII is the only representative from the PS2 era listed.
According to figures direct from Polyphony Digital, the Gran Turismo series has sold 55.45 million copies worldwide. Interestingly, Europe makes up 44% of this total with a remarkable 25 million copies sold.
It seems Europeans just cannot get enough of the real-life driving simulator.
