E3 10: Gran Turismo 5: 1,000 cars, all quite real looking

1:00 PM on 06.17.2010 // Dale North

Polyphony Digital's Kazunori Yamauchi told attendees of a Gran Turismo 5 roundtable that the version they saw at E3 yesterday was mostly finished, and that a final version would be shown at Gamescom later this year. He was happy to talk about car counts, but only a few new stages were shown off.

For the cars, there are two types. The Standard cars cover models you know from the first four Gran Turismo games. They used the original models but have optimized them for the PS3's shaders. Yamauchi says that there will be 800 Standard cars in the final game.

A lot of the new cars are included as Premium cars. There are about 200 premium cars making the total car count at about 1,000. Note that only the premium cars will have a fully modeled interior. Even the bottom side of the cars have been modeled as cars can now roll over in Gran Turismo 5. Physics-based damage will be applied to both car model types, as will scratches and dent damage. The displacement of body panels and such are only on Premium cars, though.

We saw several detailed shots of how these in-game cars compare to real ones. I actually guessed wrong in the comparison shots of a wheel and a car engine. One of the most impressive comparisons was of the interior detail of a racing car from Super GT 500 class. The very highly detailed interior was almost identical, including harnesses, wiring and even the panels. You could see that the safety wire coming off the parts has even been modeled.

Yamauchi joked that maybe they went a bit too far with the detail work in Gran Turismo 5: "We've kind of worked too hard. The models are actually better suited to the next generation of game consoles."

You'll find several comparison shots in our gallery below.

If you imagine this song as Kojima speaking these as parting words to his creation of Metal Gear, it's actually pretty heat breaking...

One thing I've learned about the Japanese fighting game players: They are willing to play any fighter no matter how good or bad it is, and they don't shit on the game or the community behind it.

Watched the first ep of One Punch Man and I was not disappointed. It seems like they'll be adding their own stories into it because I don't remember that fight in the last 5 minutes in the manga. I'll have to reread it to make sure.

What the hell is Sega using in the printing of their PS3 game manuals? I wouldn't be surprised if some dumb kid stuck one in a plastic bag and started huffing the fumes to get high.

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.
