Gran Turismo 5 – Nordschleife Time Day/Night Transition Video

The long-awaited release of Gran Turismo 5 is just a mere eight days away and below is something to shorten the remaining time for those of you waiting for Polyphony Digital’s newest racer.

The video shows a complete lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife in a Super GT Toyota Supra, the lap makes use of the title’s time-acceleration feature as it starts at bright daylight and ends in night time. The video also shows a graphical glitch around the 4 minute mark as the track disappears for a second, this issue has happened in replay-mode only and not during driving according to the video creator.

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. Gran Turismo 5 will be available in Europe and the US starting November 24

    This flick was apperently filmed from a replay in b-spec. I dont think the physics is on full simulation either.

    The track disappeared for a bit is a replay bug and does not exist when you drive anymore btw. It did in the demo build.

  • Nucleus

    You’re right in both, the physics/damage/AI we have seen so far from all the videos out there are from the beginner series.

  • Pe11e

    From now on I will cal this game Kick Opponent’s Butt Challenge. 🙂
    It’s very annoying how much this guy love the contact with other cars, and in top of all without consequences.

  • Karma

    You can call it whatever you like,but allow me to call you an arse,in case you didn’t noticed the photo in a previous post ,he’s playing in a beginners mode.

  • Fuzzi0n

    What’s with the head shaking every time he brakes? Are all the brake discs warped massively or something?

  • Jezza

    Lol i still love how the fanboys defend this overhyped crap. Doesnt matter if it was on easy or hard, its dodgem cars for retards. And as for delaying it to polish it off, not even the replay can render the track!
    And its interesting how high the sun is in the sky just before the 2nd karousel yet how remarkably dark the track became. Sun was high enough for at least another 1 and a half hours of light.

    And as some people would note the driver was bad, but then anyone who thinks GT is realistic must be a bad driver.

  • Simon

    a 7 minute lap round the Ring with that amount of bad driving, contact and wrong lines into corners is just a joke. Racing SLSs , R8s or 911s do it under 8 minutes when it’s very good lap – with a very good driver.

  • ofp4life

    Jezz, give the driver a break. You really can’t expect everyone to be as good as you.

  • Pe11e

    Sorry if I look like an arse, you apparently saw me in this video, lol. 😀
    Anyway, I love GT series, played GT4a bit, and mostly enjoyed it, because of that driving without pressure, cars are easy to control, but still it’s addictive.

    I wanted to say that some promo videos like this one are not good, because after watching them GT5 can look funny and someway retarded.

    I’m waiting for some serious driving with AI, simulation mode. 🙂

  • lans

    Jezza your the most pathetic and sad person ive ever seen in my life!
    You comment on gt5 incessantly yet you hate this game so much?
    I think you protest to much!

  • lans

    this is driven by an AI bot in beginner series, plus how do you know how fast or slow he should go, and what time he should go?

    Is there a more accurate nurburgring on this planet?
    Polyphony spent 2 years on this track, Mercedes was extremely impressed with the 1:1 scale of the track.

    I honestly dont understand what you whining about, so the game is a little quicker or slower?
    but you dont have any proof of your baseless claims

  • Gerhart

    i m not going to answer you,really not worth it,however i m going to give you this,sums perfectly all the posts you have made here.

  • Fuzzi0n

    “Is there a more accurate nurburgring on this planet?”

    Yes, the real one is.

  • Gerhart

    @Jezza obv

  • Justin ForzaBarça D’Cruze

    Havent seen a single video where the AI is competitive…..or competent.

  • Pe11e

    Errrrr, the track is top notch, but the grip is arcade, maybe because of that begginer series, dunno.
    What Simon said, sports cars like in this video do under 8 mins when it’s a very good lap. Way too much grip. I remember some older GT3 video, when the guy do a lap at Suzuka with Honda NSX, about 15 seconds faster than the real time for that car, i loled. And tha car on that video was stock model I think.

  • jichael mackson

    and you’re never gonna see in beginners mode

  • Simon

    Cars have grip that is out of his world and are so easy to drive that you have to try very hard to spin them. Yeah I know a Super GT car has lots of grip to make up for its relatively low power, but that downforce is not achievable at the Ring with the bumps and the increased ride height necessary to clear them. The track is A1, now real simulation of vehicule dynamics is needed to do it justice.

    There are multiple real-world to GT world comparisons out there where a car magically gains 10 seconds in the game. And there was a similar comparison at Road Atlanta with another game and the gap was down to 1 second.

  • Big Ron

    @Jezza
    Congratulations….the community has given you the award for the biggest idiot on virtaulr.net 😉

  • Tolik

    The grafics are really just WOW
    This ist awesome. Looking very realistic. Great job!

  • Jos

    agree, I think Im gonna have to put the AI on hard level…

  • SI GT XLR TURBO

    “1000 cars”

  • Justin ForzaBarça D’Cruze

    Sure, just making the point that someone should make a video in expert or professional mode or whatever its called. I mean come on, the game is a week away from release and watching the AI drive like Milka Duno in every single video isnt exactly a good look.

  • Justin ForzaBarça D’Cruze

    Dammit, and I wrote a speech and everything…..

  • Jezza

    god lans still making exuses, driven by a bot at the start, once he crossed the finish line he took over himself, obviously you dont read the description enough, your the biggest FB of them all because you tell yourself lies to like the game

  • Jezza

    i like awards, what i like more is idiots who non stop claim this game is good, i thank you because without you idiots esspecially lans and ron i wouldnt have had this wonderfull oppertunity

  • lans

    dude you come to gt5 threads and i love this game to death, what is your motivation for coming here all the time, WRC is the poo i dont here you slating that game, theres alot more things to slate, why dont you slate WRC and leave us normal folk alone OCD one!

  • lans

    “youre so smart”

  • lans

    eat a banana and choke on it

  • lans

    think its all the bumps on the track

  • Jezza

    i tried, but i have a strange gag reflex

  • Jezza

    i like candy fan troll

  • PeiCheck

    yes, looks very realistic, but only “looks”

  • PeiCheck

    yes, looks very realistic, but only “looks”

  • skeemo

    looking very good.

    But: We have version 5 now, and still have an AI, that is not affected by any collisions and constanly ignore players presence. This is farcical !
    The “battle” at around 1:00 would have caused a severe crash in reality. Sony should have really put work into this, if they want to be “The real driving simulator”.

    Yes GT was and is a really impressive game, but one claiming it to be realistic simply has not seen a real sim racing game (e.g. GTR, rFactor, iRacing, LFS).

    @lans
    “Is there a more accurate nurburgring on this planet?”  

    Well modders had brought a very nice and immersive Nordschleife to rFactor, with is in many points closer to the real thing…

  • lans

    hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    omg
    hahahhahahahha
    IMMERSIVE AND RFACTOR do not go well together
    lol
    You give me those crummy pics, the track looks so blocky and washed out lol!!!1 MORE IMMERSIVE
    thats a good one
    You are so deluded if you think it looks closer to real life with no HDR, or the ridges on the track are so blocky!
    The cars have no reflections how is this closer to the real thing

    LOL silly pc fanboy

    Hello the physics are not in sim mode!

  • lans

    Newsflash!
    HEY DUMB AMERICANS!
    HE’S NOT PLAYING ON PROFESSIONAL SETTINGS SOME PEOPLE WANT TO ENJOY RACING EVEN IF THEY DONT HAVE THE SKILLS FOR IT!

  • lans

    have you played the game on professional settings? what made it not realistic? or is it just your biased opinion speaking

  • lans

    So there is no dust plumes that gets kicked up from the ground when cars go onto to the grass. 
    or wind that effects the dust, or dust that gets affected by light, or a track that reacts to your cars headlights
    there is no time transition, or even realistic smoke effects
    RFactor is a joke, all they can do is physics, thats why they can’t sell there product to millions it is an incomplete project!

    The road surface modelling is cutting edge in GT5, even the track looks more vibrant,
    Cockpit view is intense
    The Sky looks like an actual Sky unlike RFactor where the sky looks like a 8bit RGB color

  • lans

    CONSOLE GAMERS DEMAND THE BEST,GET THE BEST AND PAY THE BEST.

    PC GAMERS DEMAND THE BEST, GET THE WORST AND PIRATE THE BEST!!!

  • Justin ForzaBarça D’Cruze

    ISI dont need to sell their product to millions of clueless assholes because they can just sell their products to real racing teams. Those people are generally more interested in physics rather than “realistic smoke effects”.

  • Justin ForzaBarça D’Cruze

    Justin Bieber plays consoles.
    Nuff said.

  • moving-target

    I am really looking forward to play this game.

    The sad part is that there will be 15 opponents max and not more than 5 laps in the average races. That does not feel like racing to me… that feels more like hotlapping with some friends.

    Feels a bit like an eye candy soccer game with 1000+ different players avialable, but you can only pick 6 per team. I doubt that a NASCAR race with 16 cars (instead of 43) will be that enjoyable… or a  24h event on the Nordschleife. I am not asking for the real 200+ grid but some more opponents would be great.

    I will love this game anyway there is still room for improvement. Maybe for GT6 on the PS4.

  • skeemo

    Why are you so loud ? Or is your CapsLock stuck ? lol

    Anyway no need to be offending lans.

    But to be on your level :
    Some people want to judge about racing games even if they don’t have the skills about it 😉

  • skeemo

    This maybe was true years ago.
    Today this is completley wrong.

    If you look at cross platform titles, the pc-version is always much better in terms of texture resolution, view distance, AA, AF a.s.o.
    The silly thing is, that they could look much better, if the devs would not had to take account of the limited caps of the consoles. 😉

    What actually is true, that there are always games that dont come to the pc for some mysterious reasons. For example the Skate series from EA.

  • skeemo

    lans,

    make a step back and dont be offending.
    you dont have to like what you see in my video posted. if you dont have the abilities to look at it with a neutral point of view, well thats your problem.

    but a few things to note :

    1) there IS time transition in rFactor. As in reality during one lap (10 minutes) there isnt much light changes (lol)
    2) when talking about a “real driving simulator” i think physics is the MOST important thing.

    You probably never had the opportunity to get your hands on a sim like rFactor or even iRacing.

    Anyway, owning a PS2, XBOX360 and a N64 i am probably on PC fanboy.

    lol

    ok,

    last chance for you to think about immersion.

  • lans

    Wow very nice!
    But i don’t think that gt fans from past games would except that kind of movement, there would be a huge backlash, gt5 movement seems to be a bit more tame, I can feel myself getting sick ive i played that game for more than 30 minutes no offence looked great though!

    suuuuure, if you buy new 2000$ worth pc every 6 months then u are able to enjoy that graphics on max (in most cases on medium) setting 😉 this is ridiculous

  • jimmy

    lol I have almost 2 years old PC, I paid for it about 500 USD (2 years ago) and still I can play almost anything. And thanks to moddable games like rFactor I have access to almost infinite content, whereas you must wait several years what developers prepare for you…

  • Pe11e

    If you think that rfactor is not immersive, take a look at my a bit customised rfactor:

    For me, this customised F1 1991 mod is most immersive sim I have EVER played, sense of speed is amazing, and generally i’t a blast to drive. Ofcourse you can change the deah physics or shaking, that is a question of taste, everyone can customise rfactor to suit their taste. You can’t customise that stuff in GT5, so…

    Don’t talk about something that you don’t know well. 😉

  • lans

    dude i dont care that much about your game but i dont diss it i only started to diss your sim games coz you guys diss gt5 so bad for no real season!

    the world does not really care about your F1 1991 mod the world cares about gt5, that is the harsh truth of life

  • 07wtcc

    “I can play almost anything”

    sure, I can too.. almost… with my 6 years old P4 2.8GHz and pixel shader 3.0 AGP grahics card… but this doesn’t look that good as on xbox 360 🙂 no offence. have a good day 🙂
