Gran Turismo 5 **Wednesday Release**
True to its pedigree, Gran Turismo 5 takes the GT series, as well as the simulation racing genre as a whole, to a whole new level. The game features over 1,000 realistically rendered cars. This is nearly 300 more than were included in GT4for PlayStation 2, and literally several hundred more than what was available in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, the first GTgame variation developed for PS3. This tremendous list includes standard categories of vehicles, including stock cars, tuned pre-tuned vehicles and tunables, but keeping with modern automotive technology GT5 also includes the latest, hybrid and electric car models. Just like any car, these can be raced, but as with their real-life cousins, players can also do things with these cars like monitor battery power as related to speed and other car usage. In addition, GT5 features over 20 courses, more than 60 variations, a new physics engine allowing for realistic damage, a new in-cockpit view, HD support, and much more.
The Collector’s Edition of the game includes Exclusive limited edition Kyosho designed 1:43 scale diecast 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V; n-depth 300-page car-lover’s guide written by the experts at Polyphony Digital; Custom etched Gran Turismo key chain; Voucher for 5 downloadable exclusive high-end cars with custom livery and performance upgrades and of course, the game.
