    Searched and couldn't fine one so here we we are!

    Discuss everything Gran Turismo.

    Personally, the big thing for me on every Playstation console is the GT series... have owned every single one! I'm going to be buying GT5 next year in March (hopefully) with a good old racing wheel :)

    I'm looking forward to GT5 myself. I agree that they have always been a big thing and to not own it would be something unusual... the current game is alright but I need the full fix.

    GT5 will be my 2nd GT actually. I bought 3 and really liked it, but never bought any more on the PS2 because I was more into action games. Nowadays though, my tastes are a bit wider, so I'm planning to pick this up.

    That and the fact the Top Gear track is in it.

    This plus a possible Slim/price reduction would make a killing for Sony this Christmas. I can't wait to play this game.

    So I downloaded the Demo yesterday and was having a tough time turning the car. I mean i would barely move the Analog stick to the left and the car would just spin out of control. It got really frustrating. Is anyone else having the same problem?

    the latest time trial demo is set to professional physics. which is as realistic as the game gets and is designed for use with a stearing wheel and pedels. using a controller on that demo is a lot harder. if you're not used to simulation racing games on top of that it'll be difficult. i spun out loads of times playing GT1 before i got used to that. then had to adapt to analog stearing for GT3. breaking is real important. breaking while turning is a big no no mostly. the original GT came with a manual that explained drifting and slow in fast out cornering to help aclimatise console gamers to simulation racing.

    Sucks about the release date. They better have something really special planned because they are pissing alot of money away holding this game back

    Used to own GT 1 and 2 for the ps1 never got a ps2 so i didnt play the rest.

    But i cant wait to get back in the drivers seat again!

    Rumors are going around that it could be a September release for EU and US. I would not mind that at all. Everything was so grouped together in the first quarter. It gives me and my wallet some breathing room.

    That’s right. At the Sony E3 press conference today at the Shrine Auditorium, SCEA President & CEO Jack Tretton unveiled a jaw-dropping showpiece trailer of Gran Turismo 5 that disclosed the big news – GT5 is officially coming on November, 2, 2010.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    As you can expect from any Gran Turismo game, GT5 will be bigger and better than ever, including everything from 950+ cars to a new and improved online component with expansive community features and custom race lobbies. Before you head off to pre-order the game that every racing fan is going to be playing, you’ll need to decide which version you’re going to get: the standard edition or the limited Collector’s Edition. And if you’re a true Gran Turismo fan, of course you’ll want to pick up the Collector’s Edition.
    Gran Turismo doesn’t cut corners, and neither does this Collector’s Edition. It’s packed full of must-have items that were picked and designed for true car lovers: an exclusive 1:43 scale diecast Nissan GT-R Spec V, an in-depth 300-page car guide, a GT-branded key chain, a voucher for five (5) DLC cars, and a numbered certificate of authenticity, all housed in stylish, premium packaging. And you get all that for $99.99 MSRP.
    [​IMG]
    The included diecast car is an exclusive 1:43 scale 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V with a custom Gran Turismo livery designed by Polyphony Digital, produced by well-known collectible car maker Kyosho, who have been making some of the best collectible diecast cars for over 20 years. The 300+ page exclusive Collector’s Edition book from Polyphony Digital will be essential reading for GT fans, containing everything from the history of the automobile, to driving techniques, professional racing tips, car and engine basics and tuning know-how, and reference data about Gran Turismo 5. I want to warn you that the Collector’s Edition has a limited run, so pre-order it quickly if you want to guarantee your copy.

    [​IMG]
    The exciting pre-order program for Gran Turismo 5 offers exclusive and beautiful in-game cars as bonuses, including the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R GT500, McLaren F1, and more. Each car features an exclusive and stylish Gran Turismo-themed “stealth” livery custom-designed by Polyphony Digital, with select performance upgrades over the standard versions of the cars available in the game. Pre-orders offers will be coming soon at participating retailers for both the standard and Collector’s Edition versions.

    In the coming months leading up to launch, we’ll be sharing new game features and new cars and tracks. In case you missed it, be sure to go check out the full-length version of the GT retrospective trailer that debuted here on the PS blog. For those of you who fondly remember GT, this one’s for you.
    Keep checking the Gran Turismo website for the latest screenshots, detailed information on the game, and other Gran Turismo-related news.

    I've had this pre-ordered a long time, but I ran down to Gamestop to see if the Collectors Edition was up, but sadly not yet. Hopefully tomorrow.

    I've tried playing gt games in the past, but it seems sim racers are not my thing, I'm more of an arcade racer person
