It Only Does Revolutionary Racing Experiences

Peter Dille's Avatar Posted by Senior Vice President, Marketing & PlayStation Network

PlayStation Nation,

In just six short days, the franchise that revolutionized the racing category as we know it will be making its exclusive debut on PlayStation 3. Gran Turismo 5 will be racing onto store shelves this coming Wednesday, November 24. This highly anticipated installment will no doubt raise the bar on the franchise’s unparalleled graphics, presentation and gameplay – bringing you an experience so life-like you’ll find it hard to distinguish from a live race.

While we think features such as the all-new Course Maker, an expansive online racing community built right in, stereoscopic 3D compatibility and more than 1,000 cars from the world’s top manufacturers, including karts and select NASCAR cars, speak for themselves, we still couldn’t resist giving one of our most anticipated and loved franchises the “Kevin Butler” treatment. In this latest ad, we find Kevin Butler taking a call from a devoted Gran Turismo fan anxiously waiting for the game’s release. In between showing off his own real-life GT garage and some serious stuntman skills, Kevin fills us in on just how many amazing features were added to GT5 in order to bring you the greatest racing game of all time.

As always you’re the first to see the new ad here but you can also check it out when the Indianapolis Colts take on the New England Patriots on CBS this Sunday as well as on some other great NFL match-ups and many of your favorite shows in the weeks to come.

With the holidays just around the corner, we couldn’t be more excited to welcome GT5 into a robust product lineup that includes PlayStation Move and an exciting roster of Move titles, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition, The Sly Collection, and much more. There’s something for everyone so spread the word and get PS3 on as many holiday shopping lists as you can.

See you in stores on Wednesday and more importantly online in GT5!

The people at GT Planet who have the full copy of the game aren’t seeing damage like the kind that is being shown in that video.

The damage modelling is far from realistic. In fact, it’s barely even noticeable. Just like every version of GT, you can smash into a wall at full-speed then just drive away like nothing happened.

With the amount of time they took to make this game, you’d think they could get this right.

It Only Does make (pathetic) people without a PS3 create PS3 accounts on a friend’s PS3 to troll a PS3 blog…

The damage is set to preset options. If i might be correct, the could be missing the bar for those options whoever has those ‘early copies’ of GT anyways, Really excited for this game. Going to the Midnight Launch for this.
