PostSubject: OFFICIAL Gran Turismo 5 THREAD   Sat Sep 03, 2011 11:56 am

Gran Turismo is Italian for "Grand Tourer", often abbreviated to GT. It is a highly successful and critically acclaimed series of racing simulation video games produced for the Sony PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable. All of the games are said to simulate the appearance and performance of a large selection of vehicles, nearly all of which are licensed reproductions of real-world automobiles. Since the franchise's first entry in December 1997, over 53 million units have been sold worldwide.

The Gran Turismo series is developed by Polyphony Digital and produced by Kazunori Yamauchi.

The appeal of the Gran Turismo series is due significantly to the graphics, the number of licensed vehicles, the extent and detail of simulation, and the ability to tune performance. Handling of the vehicles is modeled on real-life driving impressions, tuning is based on principles of physics, and the sound of the vehicle's engine is based on recordings of the actual vehicles. The game has been a flagship for the PlayStation console's graphics capabilities, and is often used to demonstrate the system's potential.

Gran Turismo 5 is going to be pack-loaded with features, including many that are new to the franchise like the highly requested damage and online multiplayer.

- Damage (Physical and Mechanical)
- Online with up to 16 players
- 2 player Splitscreen (Very Happy)
- 1000 cars of which 830 are regular and 170 premium (Fully replicated interiors, will incorporate a more advanced level of damage interior and exterior-wise, and of course have incredible details)
