Gran Turismo 5 Races Into Stores Today!

Chris Hinojosa-Miranda's Avatar Posted by Producer

Christmas has arrived a little early for all you GT fans across the world with today’s release of Gran Turismo 5. That’s right, it’s been five years in the making and it’s finally here — the most realistic and comprehensive driving experiences in one of the most highly-anticipated games ever released. And what better way to spend the 4-day weekend than diving into the world of Gran Turismo 5 head first?

To celebrate today’s release, check out our new GT video with never-before-seen footage of the game.

Not only will you be able to play with over 1,000 licensed cars from the world’s top manufacturers, race on more than 20 tracks with over 70 variations of famous world circuits, city courses, snow and dirt, and original environments popular to fans, but experience new features BRAND NEW to the franchise. These include real-time car damage, dynamic weather effects, kart racing, access to select NASCAR cars, a Course Maker and of course, robust online community features. And did we mention that all of this is also compatible with awe-inspiring stereoscopic 3D right out of the box? The official Gran Turismo website features an incredibly in-depth look at all of the features the game has to offer, and see the more pictures like the stunning ones below taken with nothing more than the in-game Photo Mode feature.

And… don’t forget about GT Academy coming here to the US! For more details on Gran Turismo 5 and GT Academy, click here.

@ COD__456

Here’s a few ways to free up space…

Delete any save files/game data files for games you no longer own.
Back up any MP3s onto a player and delete them from your PS3.
Videos can be big. Dump any you no longer watch.
If you’re REALLY tight for space, delete downloaded PSN games.

Down the road, you might want to look into installing a larger hard drive. For around $80-90 you can get a 2.5 inch SATA drive. Installation instructions are in your PS3 owner’s manual and it doesn’t take long to do.

Hope this helps…

Any chance we could import our own MP3s into the music library?

That would be a nice addition!

@104 – RapidfireRay.

You can play your own music, just import the MP3 music onto the PS3 HDD and within GT 5 there’s an option to play music from the PS3 HDD.

It will even award you a trophy just by turning your music on to play from the PS3 HDD !

This game is just amazing !

Not sure why some aren’t giving it good reviews, but everything I’ve seen, I’ve been really impressed.

Played all last night and didn’t see any screen tearing or have any problems being online.

I tried the game with the controller as well as the Wheel and I have to say I love driving with the wheel….so much more realistic !

I agree wholeheartedly with GGCAN. the game is simply amazing and I have yet to come across any terrible issues. this game was one heck of a wait but in my opinion it was well worth the wait and I know it will be keeping me busy for months upon months upon months to come!!

Go to the options menu – hardware.
Where the PS controllers are, scroll to the right until you find the audio settings. Look for the Personal BGM setting and access your MP3 list from there. Select a playlist and turn on the tunes.

Follow these instructions:
1. From the main menu (where you select GT Mode, Arcade Mode, etc.), select “Options”.
2. Move down to the “Hardware” section.
3. Scroll right until you reach “Audio” and select that option.
4. Move down to the subsection of “Personal BGM” and make sure you check the box next to “Enable Personal BGM (Race)”.
5. Click on “Select Personal BGM (Race)”. This will bring up your music section from the XMB.
6. OPTIONAL: Click “Play Mode” on the right of your music files under “Group Content” and turn “Shuffle” on or off, and select your preferred “Repeat” setting.
7. Select the music track you want to play.

All done. You can’t change the menu music, but you can turn it off if you want.

People, GT5 has to many problems…I don’t know why or what’s wrong but when I finish any race the car keeps running and I can’t even get back to the restart, exit or continue menu when I press start on the race and when I quit the game to get to the system menu it beeps twice and I don’t know why…can some one tell me if the same thing is happening to you with this game???

Enjoyed watching the “Finale” movie last night.
Still plenty more racing to do.

After playing the game for a few days I would have to say the game is quite impressive. The bad things that they said about the game on IGN are true however I do believe some of the issues can be fixed with patches in the future.

My biggest gripe with the game is the 3D convergence issue I have with the game in 3D mode. (At least I believe it is a convergence issue?) On my new Panasonic 50″ 3DTV when playing the game in 3D mode while watching certain parts of the game I can see some double images which should not be there. Anytime something comes to the foreground to where it should be sticking out of the TV I get double imaging issues.

Also the more 3D depth of field I add to the game the more doubling of images I get. I dont think its an issue with the 3DTV as some other 3D games like Tumble and Swords and Soldiers work fine, as do the demos on my PC using the GTX 470 card. I hope this can be fixed in a patch or something.I have tried all the settings in the game and cannot get the game to display perfectly in 3D. :(

Sony, I’ve been in touch with a lot of people that still don’t own a PS3. According to them, a bundle with GT5 and a racing wheel would be a no brainer sell for them.

Consider this :)

Will any of the pre-order dlc cars be available for purchase via PSN store?

Update: Polyphony, I took a break from finals to play GT5. In the museum, I saw a card for the Subaru Alcyone SVX!!! Thanks again for the hard work. I really appreciate how well you are keeping up with the community.
Playstation, that is one awesome commercial with Kevin Butler, Boombassador of Deals, and Best Buy.
To everyone else, Happy Holidays!
