New Gran Turismo 5 Demo Shows In-Cockpit Gameplay
Everyone is expecting a finalized release date for Gran Turismo 5 to be announced at E3 and in the meantime, how's about some gameplay?
The video below shows off a lengthy gameplay session and while you'll be yelling at some dope to "get out of the friggin way" in the first minute, things kick off pretty quickly. The menus are slick and engaging and another interesting tidbit to note is that AI drivers now have names, which is clearly another detail designed to enhance the overall realism and authenticity of the game. As for the actual driving, everything appears to be fluid and fast and while the cockpit view found in Need for Speed: SHIFT was great, this is whole different thing. The sound sort of sucks and the driver isn't exactly an expert, but you really do get an idea of how the final product will feel.
There are plenty of reasons to be excited for GT5 and although we're really hoping the addition of 3D wasn't the cause for the game's long delay (and we doubt it could be), such new features should be appreciated by the fans. There's little doubt that the newest GT will indeed be the best and every time we see new footage like this, we get a touch more antsy...
