The ‘semi-official’ blog ThreeSpeech has posted some very official-looking new Gran Turismo 5 screenshots/eyecandy.
A few of the images show an in-car views from the drivers seats of a Ferrari and Audi, and even one with an over-the-shoulder rear view. That Ferrari has a terrible blind spot! There are also a couple that show parked cars in photo-realistic settings, much like the GT5 trailer did.
Granted, we need to see how this plays (TGS, perhaps?), but there’s no denying that these screens are gorgeous. Well, except for the ‘Atari flashback’ in the rear view mirror of this picture. What’s up with that?
In other Gran Turismo 5 news, Sony repsonds to rumors that the title will include 1,000 vehicles:
“Despite news articles claiming that ‘SCEI/Polyphony Digital’ have made an official announcement with regards to GT5 featuring 1000 vehicles, we can confirm that this is pure speculation. It would appear that the list is a mixture of vehicles that were included in previous GT titles, coupled with somebody’s own fantasy garage.
Further details about GT5 will be announced in due course, but for the moment at least, we can confirm that the current car list/speculation, does not come from SCE.”
It turns out that the site that first posted the news admits that the list was fake.
