Full GT5 Details: 1,000 Vehicles, 80 Courses, Online, More!

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.

"Able to track the movement of Cockpit Camera interface (confirmed in full 3-D. The camera can be fully manipulated and you can opt to have your head tracked by the PSEye)"

WTF??? That is unbelievable. This game is going to be the most realistic game ever, no matter the genre. And 80 tracks?? Wow...

like i said in another article about GT4 saying it has over 625 cars but if you play it had about 736 cars. Well I think the PSP will insead of over 800 it could mean over 900, and the same could be applied to GT5 and its 1000 who knows what the "real" final number will be.

I love this game, and I haven't even played it. I've been waiting for a game that supports custom soundtracks, but unfortunately I won't be using it too much in this game. In the GT series, I've always preferred to hear the roar of the engine, the rumble of the car on the asphalt or gravel, and the squeal of the tires. But since the option's there, I'm sure I'll use it a couple times anyway. Can't wait for this game to be in my PS3, and the controller stuck in my hands.

GameStop (I know, I know, GameStop is evil. Get over it folks!) has reduced the price on one of the Logitech PS3 racing wheels, the lower-end model, to $29 from $99 (check the site).

I bought one of these wheels for my wife last year because every time we were in a GameStop she kept saying she wanted one for GT Prologue and Burnout Paradise. Now that GameStop has cut the price to $29 I've bought a second one.

While it is one of Logitech's lower-end PS3 wheels, it still feels good and offers a nice force feedback for the price.

On another note, and maybe this is another hint that GT5 IS coming this year, Logitech is releasing another PS3 steering wheel for $300.

Historically, Logitech issues new wheels when a new GT is coming out.

I apologize because I should have been a bit more detailed. I would not put anything from that album on there. I would be going back to the demos of the Amon days, self-titled, Legion, and Once Upon the Cross. Back when their music was top notch and their live shows were amazing. I haven't enjoyed anything produced after the Hoffman brothers left.

That's the only thing that worries me. "Damage Representation" That's not actually saying that damage will affect the way you drive, just that it'll be there visually...I want to know how it affects the game.

Polyphony usually doesn't try to be cheap and count the many tuned variations. So I'm sure they'll be a lot of unique cars.

Maybe even like what "mustang750r" says.

if you look at the "online" tab of the new features the has been added it says "text/voice chat."

Do you think when this beast of a game rolls out Sony will issue an update that will allow cross game voice chat?

It's good to see an AAA title using some of those 'optional' PS3 features that we keep hearing about. The graphics look incredible. The damage modelling looks a little suspect in one of videos. The bonnet manages to stay attached to the car despite being driven with it raised!
