Forza Motorsport 4 was released this month. It's a great game—a great-looking game, too. Gran Turismo 5, released last year, is also a great-looking game. But which one looks better?
Lucas Ordoñez won the first GT Academy time-trial contest, giving the gamer-racer his start in the FIA GT4 series. Now he's signed to Team Signatech Nissan, and will compete in the 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans. Mind-blowing.
In a post on the Red Bull blog, Rhys Millen advises gamers on how to handle the Pikes Peak rally course in Gran Turismo 5. Only trouble is, Pikes Peak hasn't been in a GT game since Gran Turismo 2.
Sounds nutty. But let me explain!
The folks at Caterham Japan felt that, no matter how good Gran Turismo 5 is, it still can't beat the real thing. So they took a Seven around GT5's Route 246 road course in Tokyo... in real life. Here's video.
After five years of development, Gran Turismo 5 is finally here. For three days we've ignored family, friends and hygiene test driving it to see if it's the most realistic racing game ever. It is. But should you buy it?
Like many, we got our hands on GT5 today. While we're putting together our "first drive" review (we need at least 24 hours of playing time first), give us your thoughts below. Oh yeah, and here's the car list again.
Sony "VP" Kevin Butler explains why "Gran Turismo 5" needed to "have more awesome" in this first commercial for the new racing sim. Kevin, we know exactly what it's like to try to "have more awesome." Power, brah. Power.
As part of the rollout of Gran Turismo 5, Sony and Nissan will launch the GT Academy, a contest giving the top U.S. drivers in the game a chance to race professionally. That Stig suit may come in handy.
Now that we've got a for sale date on Gran Turismo 5, it's time to find out what you can drive and where. Below, the official list of all 1031 cars and all 71 tracks of GT5.
While Gran Turismo5 edges closer to reality, one sharp shopper saw that at least one part of Sony's own website puts the release date in December. That'd certainly comport with what Kazunori Yamauchi told us at SEMA earlier this week.
We just asked Kazunori Yamauchi, the father of Gran Turismo, in an interview here at SEMA, the question on everyone's minds — when will GT5 finally be released? His response: "The discs are being stamped as we speak."
Polyphony Digital's latest offering for fans the oft-delayed Gran Turismo 5 game is this full video reveal of the Red Bull X1, including Sebastian Vettel's test laps. This thing sounds like bionic hyenas mixing plutonium smoothies.
When Gran Turismo 5 finally arrives, it will include the Red Bull X1 prototype, the answer to the question of "What if you designed a race car with an unlimited budget and no regard for rules?" Gas turbine, engage.
