Gran Turismo 5 was recently featured in a five-page article in the French Official Playstation Magazine, including mentions of both Karts and the track editor.
Back in June, Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worlwide Studios, first mentioned karting being part of Gran Turismo 5. No preview images of the nimble racing machines have been released yet, an equally mystical feature is the track editor which has been rumored for over a year now. Nobody know’s how the editor is going to work and to what extend new tracks can be created.
Below are scans of the full article, maybe some of VirtualR’s French readers can scan through the text to see if it mentions any further details that haven’t been revealed here yet.
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.
