It seems like the confusion about whether or not the 800 standard models in Polyphony Digital’s upcoming Gran Turismo 5 title will have a cockpit view is over as only the 200 premium cars have been confirmed to have interior view.
That means the majority of cars in Gran Turismo 5 will only be drivable from the bumper cam view that is known from older GT titles. Furthermore, the standard models don’t seem to have received a major graphical update as the first video below shows. Aside from the rather unimpressive graphics, the video also highlights on of GT’s biggest problems – Weak sounds.
Another thing that has finally been clarified is the different types of damage. All 1000 cars in GT5 will receive dents and scratches and damage will affect the physics off all cars. Deformable or dislocated body parts however are restricted to the 200 premium cars in game. The second video shows the title’s damage model in action, including some rollovers.
Gran Turismo 5 will be bringing 1000 cars and over 60 tracks to the Playstation 3, including new features such as damage, weather and day/night effects. GT5 will be one of the first six Playstation 3 games to be available in 3D. The title will be out on November 2nd in the North & Latin America, release dates for Europe and Japan have not been confirmed yet.
