GT5 has 1000 cars, including hybrids

GT5 has 1000 cars, including hybrids

Gran Turismo 5 will feature more than 1000 cars according to early reports, including hybrids like the Tesla.

Gran Turismo 5 will feature around 1000 cars according to information that was briefly available on the official Polyphony Digital website, including a range of electric and hybrid vehicles like the Tesla.

What's more, there were several brochures and pamphlets doing the rounds at GamesCom 2009 which listed the game as being set for a Q4 2009 release on the PlayStation 3 - the first time a release date has been properly attached to the game.

The listing of new cars was grabbed by fansite by GTPlanet and includes a bunch of other gameplay features and details that are being touted for the upcoming racing sim.

Those new features apparently include more than 20 playable tracks in the game, spread out over 60 different layouts and courses, plus custom soundtrack support and the fact that 170 of the 1000 cars will have fully modelled interiors. On the downside, the vehicle damage system doesn't seem to be all there yet according to Eurogamer.

We did have a quick look at Gran Turismo 5 when we were at GamesCom ourselves, but we weren't honestly able to get very far with it thanks to not being able to drive cars in real life. Ah well. Let us know your thoughts on the GT games in the forums.

Honestly, with Forza 3 on the way and Dirt 2 being nothing short of epic, I really don't see the big appeal to GT. Sure, back in the day it was a shining beacon in an industry that didn't really have that many great racers, but now I only see a developer that has only just decided to play catch up and put in a damage model, and took far to long to release what basically amounted to little more than a demo. And the full game is still not out.

No offense to anyone that loves GT, I'm sure 5 will be as amazing as you all hope, but I really don't see the big deal.

OK so maybe I'm being very glass-is-half-empty by focusing on this but it's a shame that only a 170 of the 1000 cars are going to have fully modeled interiors. Does anyone know if only a select number of cars in Forza 3 will have fully modeled interiors, too?

"170 out of 1000 of the included cars will also be specially designed models that'll have more detailed interiors" is the correct translation. "the interior corresponds to vehicle damage". The other cars will have fully modeled interiors, just not interiors that correspond to vehicle damage.

Ah, i see. Still lousy. If you're going to implement a feature, implement it on all the cars. I always thought that Japanese people had pride in their work, so what's going on here? Is Sony calling the shots now or something?

On the other hand, it doesn't have a PC version.

Ba doom tish

well PD is owned by Sony, and Sony is a Japanese company...

The thing is vehicle manufacturers might not allow them to implement it on all cars

Hybrid race-driver: "Ha-ha! My car's lighter than yours, because it's got no weighty petrol. Haha! I'll be faster! See you at the finish line, losers!"

LAP 3:

"Bollards, can't seem to find a kettle lead in here..."

GT5 fail?

Sony is Sony. They haven't made a sensible decision ever since they announced the PS3.

That's an ancient bollocks excuse. Look at other games. GRID has damage on everything. Forza 3 will have damage on everything. Most racing sim games have damage on everything. And i'm sure all those games cover the manufacturers that won't have full damage in GT5. In fact, i bet in GT5 the 170 cars with full damage will not be just from certain manufacturers i.e. there will be some with and without full damage from the same manufacturer. They just didn't want to go and re-do all their cars.

Don't hybrids have an alternate internal combustion engine that lets them drive farther than a standard IC car?

Also, last time i checked you can quick drop a battery from an all electric car and insert one in about 1 minute. (see renault and nissan)

1 of those 1000 cars wouldn't happen to be a Delorean, would it? =P
somidiot 24th August 2009, 20:54 Quote
there was a delorean in GT4. personally I'd rather skip the car damage. I wouldn't want a repeat of Eddie Griffin's performance (for those of you who have no Idea what I'm talking about http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECvp58r7P44). I'd like to crash into a wall at over 200 mph and yet the car survives intact.

yes, it would be nice if the article was updated to not mislead everyone into a Sony hate festival like pretty much all PS3 articles.

I'll start taking bets on how many Skylines, 350Z and Civic etc duplicates there will be in the game.

I understand Civic and Skylines but 350Z?

There are like 5 generations worth of Skylines, but like 1 350Z...Sorry just being anal about it.

Well it was a joke as a GT fan but there are a few variants but yes not that many like the Skylines. It was just the next thing that came to mind.

If you join the weight of the electric motor and the batteries i think it will weigh about as much as an internal combustion engine + fuel deposit, plus you don't need a gear box or a clutch.

everyone keeps going on about how realistic gt is. gt 5 prologue the cars felt like they were glued to the track, there was no sensation of speed and it was so boring. the cars looked realistic, but the textures used for the scenery were nt even detailed photo realistic textures like other games, they were just a plain colour without even some shading. look at the grass for instance next time u load up gt5pl, its a joke.

compared to grid where cars felt alive and there was great sensation of speed. it was more realistic but still much more fun. it looked vastly better, levelling up was nt tedious. nascar and wrc only things were giving a trial in gt5, but if these are like the rest of it, back in the rental envelope it goes and the grid disc loaded up for the 100th time

GRID is more arcadey actually. GT5 does get boring, if only because the AI is so damned perfect.
