Gran Turismo tends to be the first chance the commoners get to drive a highly anticipated new car. The Nissan GT-R appeared camouflaged in GT5 before anyone actually got to drive it on the street.
Yesterday, a camouflaged version of the next generation 2014 Corvette appeared in Gran Turismo 5. Could the car debut in GT5 before it does in real life?
Surprised? Shocked? Eh, not really? At the China Joy gaming event in Shanghai, Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi once again stated that work on Gran Turismo 6 shortly after GT5 finished (something he told Kotaku back in 2010).
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?
Sony has a plan to make you forget all about the launch of that other racing sim today with the announcement of new downloads featuring 15 cars and two additional tracks as well as other in-game changes for Spec 2.0 of Gran Turismo 5 launching today.

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.
