Weather and day/night races coming to GT5?

Discussion in 'Gran Turismo 5' started by Kevin Watts, Sep 30, 2009.

  1. This web-site seems to think so. A french site interviewed Kazunori Yamauchi and revealed the news but it was quickly debunked by another site only to be supported by the one linked above...

    Some nice new bits of information which has apparently been held back by an embargo are that the European release date is March 2010 and there will be day and night races as well as weather effects and things like tyre wear modelled. The list is as follows:
    • European Release Date: March 2010 near / announcement imminent
    • Race day ... and night
    • Back to racing in the rain ​
    • Tire wear: refining loss of adhesion ​
    • A garage of 950 vehicles ​
    • 20 locations around the world ​
    • 70 variations of circuits ​
    • New vehicle physics ​
    • Damage by deformation of each parts of the car ... depending on the speed and direction of impact ​
    • Upload his replay on YouTube
    • PSP GT + Exports Enhanced TV videos from the PS3 to the PSP ​
    • From the day of launch: the possibility to upload hundreds of vehicles obtained in the GT on PSP ... to Gran Turismo 5
    I'm planning on getting GT PSP so the last point is interesting if this list is true. ​
  2. They did say very soon after the Japanese release, so late March, early April is realistic. An interview I read at GTPlent with Kaz, Kaz said that they could implement day/night and other weather but they basically said it's not priority at the moment. Nice to know they can though :)
  3. I'm downloading GT on my PSP now, looking forward to seeing what its like.
  4. Awesome.

    Some news from Spain, apparently. Some website rep went to a trailer viewing of GT5. Apparently it showed an "awesome" and "much improved" damage model and it was at night. YAY!
  5. The damage better be improved, because if all they had was what we saw last time, I'm not sure why they bothered... TOCA 3, for example, already did it much better. Of course, if all of what they said is actually coming, this will be very, very awesome... let's just hope it's not another GT2...
  6. They also said that the video showed scratches and dents etc.
  7. I'm quite impressed with the performance Polyphony has squeezed out of the PSP version of GT. PSP Go users can use a Bluetooth PS3 controller to play which would make it a little easier to handle than the small PSP analogue or D-pad.

    Didn't the old GT3/4 have night races though?

    I'm sure I remember playing some of the circuits at night...
  9. Some circuits were at night, yes. But they were designed that way. By night racing in this sense they mean realtime.

    Oh right, cool!

    Possibility of any LeMans style action with realtime day to night scenarios perhaps?
  11. Count on it. they have the licence, the track and the day night effects (and they said they're working on tyre deformation) :)
  12. I may be wrong but I recall reading somewhere that although day and night races will be possible it won't be transitional you either start a race with one or the other.

    Oh well, guess you can't have it all eh?

    Shame as I remember a game on the Dreamcast that actually did that. Why they can't implement it on these new super-powerful consoles I'll never know...
  14. i have 100 cars with my psp now, i do a lot of traveling so any "airtime" is spent on the psp.

    Makes my flights go really fast.

    Newest car Audi R8 LMS Playstation car. Love it!
  15. This game has been growing large ever since :D

    Too bad I only have to nestle for GT4 (oh wait, the cd broke, dangit :()
