GT5 Will Do NASCAR "Better Than Anybody Before"
EA Sports may have abandoned their NASCAR game franchise but that doesn't mean fans of the sport are without options.
NASCAR will be included in Gran Turismo for the first time in the upcoming fifth installment and if you think Polyphony can only handle road racing and Rally, think again. There's a new video featuring the developer at Texas Motor Speedway over at the PlayStation Blog, and it's awfully encouraging for NASCAR aficionados. Managing director of licensed products at NASCAR, Blake Davidson, says quite simply that Polyphony is "going to do it better than anybody's ever done it before," and "it's the best depiction of what NASCAR cars are in any driving game to date." If you think that's cool, check this out: Davidson says that one of the reasons NASCAR teamed up with Polyphony is because of the sport's most prominent stars - Dale Earnhardt, Jr. - flat out said:
"You really need to look at Polyphony Digital. They're a great developer, the best in the world at what they do."
We've known for a while that professional and amateur racers the world over have said the Gran Turismo driving simulator is the most realistic available, and it's the closest most of us will get to driving a real race car on a real racetrack. Simply logging on to Gran Turismo TV will show you multiple interviews with some of the world's most accomplished drivers, all of whom are behind Polyphony 100%. But it's even more impressive when we hear such praise for a brand new racing feature in the established franchise in question...just imagine how unbelievably realistic GT5 will be on the road courses!
