Rumour: GT5 has track editor

Rumour: GT5 has track editor

Rumours are flying that Gran Turismo 5 will feature a track editor, though Sony won't discuss the subject yet.

Gran Turismo 5 just might have got even more exciting is recent rumours are to be believed, with E4G apparently having uncovered that the legendary racing simulator will ship with some form of track editor.

Of course, news of a new track editor isn't as exciting as other news might be - such as, say, a concrete release date. The game has been in development for what feels like forever and is still only listed for an 'Early 2010' release according to Sony and even that isn't a solid one.

Sony have refused to comment specifically on the presence of a track editor in Gran Turismo 5 and have released a very carefully worded statement that only increases our speculation.

"We haven't confirmed this and aren't offering any other comment at this time," Sony told Eurogamer.

Of course, that contractdicts directly with what E4G heard from a Sony representative who told them quite specifically that that the game will support the creation of new tracks and the editing of existing ones.

Yes it will have a track editor. You will be able to rebuild a track from scratch or edit the tracks that are already put in Gran Turismo 5"

That comment was later pulled back, with Sony refusing to hand out any information and claiming that fans will have to "wait and see".

Doesn't the fact that they don't want to comment on it just prove that there is probably going to be an editor.

Its just like in law, when someone gets asked, did they do something, and they say no comment, obviously they did do said thing then, otherwise they'd have just said no.

Shame its not on the PC, they would benefit from a bigger fan base than with just the PS3 (cough crap).

Cerberus.... see the following thread and it might change your point of view ;) The Lib Dems are planning on bringing this back as a proper right if they get elected.

Is GT5 actually ever coming out? I'm beginning to believe it's vaporware...

A year ago I might of thought that was cool but after LBP, playing through a ton of user generated pap is not my idea of fun.

though once MM release a Best of Users content I'll no doubt pick it up as LBP is awesome and I want more

The other problem is that the cool stuff that often gets made will often be deleted due to copyright or something for example you know some one will put the effort in to get the UK tracks in like cadwell, castle coombe etc assuming the tools are that good and Sony will just delete them.

might get that ps3 now =D MGS4, GT5, little big plannet, killzone 2, ratchet and clank. Enough exclusives to keep me happy for a few years =)

just a pity forza 3 looks so tasty too. Good times for racing fans.

So does this mean there'll be versions (eventually) of real racetracks that weren't included? i.e. Spa, Manky Curves, Hockenheim etc?

Erm, are you not aware of PD's reputation when it comes to release dates? They're even worse than Valve. Besides, GT5:P has been out for nearly 2 years now.

I was convinced the PSP version of GT was vapourware, but look how that turned out. Of course, by then it was far too late and I had long since sold my PSP.

Want to do Top Gear track on PC? I think someone made it for rFactor or GTR.

rFactor, but i don't have the game, don't have a good wheel nor do i have the patience to play a real simulator.

Grid or Shift is my type :)

Wish Gran Turismo would stop referring to itself as a sim. Its arcade+.

I've played the Topgear track on GTR2, you can only really have one car on it though, the AI can't handle it and even if it could, its a figure 8 track so the cars would just crash into each other.

how is it not a sim?

GT is pretty good as a sim if you set it up to be one, its not perfect, nothing is.

console wise, this is the closest thing to a sim you will ever get

i tried gt4 with my g25 and it was surprinsingly good. It was still the same easy gameplay of gran turismo but it didn't feel too much arcade like a need for speed , grid or dirt would
