- All cars and tracks from GT4 will be included in GT5
- More cars and tracks should be downloadable
- 4 driving views
- Damage for the race cars
- All Ferrari+ F1 cars
- New city tracks
- Online drivers 12-20
- Changing weather during races.


Just rumors for now since no one has seen the actually interview except for this guy:
http://www.planete-gt.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1565&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=&sid=6406ea8a9ecfee72be8b88746058347f

And seeing as it even looks as the guy is advertising the magazine, giving out its price and everything, take this with a grain of salt...

But if true... F*CK YEAH!



UPDATE:
This interview has been confirmed by Sirolf in this post.

I am going to kill that asshole when all of this ends up being completely false. But for now, I've just about nutted myself dry. :D PEACE.

EDIT: 12-20 online play is probably my favorite rumor here. But the bullshit about all cars from GT4 sounds like a load. Maybe through microtransaction, but not Day1 out-of-the-box. PEACE.

Damage for the race cars? only race cars? I hope they include the racing conversion option that GT 1 and 2 had. But Weather, Online, Ferrari, Hot damn!

edit: nvm


edit 2: In spite of pie in the sky assumptions like that (GT4 had almost 800 cars, all those at GT5's level of graphical fidelity? Nope.) GT5 really does have all the ingredients to be something really awesome.

What they forget to mention is that online play consists of people coming together and play a time trial run by themselves, then compare the times afterwards like F355 Ferrari. lol.

no its actually 20 cars in real time. however, the track is designed to be 20 cars wide. so everyone will use everyone else has a bumper. this will constitute the single player. this way, they do not even have to code AI.

If the leap (graphics) from GT4 to GT5 is as significant as GT2 to GT3's, then holy son of a crow....

I wonder though if it'll be -amazing- graphically, 12-20 players online, weather effects AND at 60 frames per second?

Wasn't there a topic on this French preview, or at least another preview from the same France media blitz, that stated complete dashboard and cockpit modeling for all cars? Yet no inclusion in these note points? ("4 driving views" isn't exactly indicative.) Curious if it's actually confirmed or not.

GT5 will show off the greatness of blu-ray... obviously games will do so ahead of it though like MGS4 and FFXIII.

What's so unbelievable about that? That was the very first thing they did to GT5, bring over all of the existing content before making new content. That aspect of the game is already done.

Sarcasm aside, the game is supposed to have an invisibility toggle. In other words, you can have cars drive right through you or not.

whatdog.gif?

So there will be 500+ damageable cars? Or does it mean only a specific type of car is damageable (race cars)?

That doesn't seem right either way

The race cars, as in the cars with all of the decals on them prepped specifically for track use.

6 player online worked just fine in the GT4 online beta. I have a harder time believing that there could be 20 GTHD quality cars on a track at the same time.

Of course a preview in PSM a few years back said pretty much all these features would be in GT4, so unless all this information came directly from Kaz in the interview I wont believe it until I see it.

Oh jesus why are you here?

I've seen this guy on other forums. He isn't good news, biggest Sony shill on Earth, ever. EVER. He's like the thousand Sony viral marketers this forum is supposed to have compressed into one person.

Normal cars will probably have destroyable bumpers and mirrors while the racing cars can be wrecked I guess.

And there's no way they will be bringing over every car seen in GT4, tracks possibly but not all the cars.

Well once they have the tools to create a car piece by piece rather than just a single static model, it likely becomes a lot easier to make additional cars. They can likely re-use a tonne of the assets too, and just build the car around some re-used car parts.

I'd imagine it would be harder to make the jump from 200 cars to 500 in regards to modeling their cockpits (for first person view) a lot more than having them all dynamically and realistically damageable.

That's crap if true. So that means damage won't be applied to most of the cars? If I can only smash up a particular type of car, then what's the point?

I'd prefer they only include the cars they can wreck up, at least that sets a regular standard.

I believe its better then nothing isn't it? ...

Also here is your answer:
Damage, which Yamauchi jokingly referred to as "the homework [Polyphony Digital] always forgets to turn in], will be in GT HD at some point, though Yamauchi was careful to point out that different cars may suffer differing levels of damage. To appease manufacturers, the game might feature extensive damage on race-trimmed vehicles, while only minimal or cosmetic damage on the everyday factory street models, but this is all still up in the air at this point.

They can work on 400 cars at the same time ;)

Three months between 5 people from what I've been told personally.

So has this been confirmed earlier then? Because that's insane if true, almost 800 cars with cockpit views? I salute thee, PD.

That's different one, just French TV.

Well that sounds okay. I'd still like there to be race ending damage if you completely mess up, even if it doesn't register visually. And cars need to be able to flip in this one regardless of race car or street models. Even if it doesn't happen much, there needs to be the appropriate physics. Sick of seeing the GT cars so firmly planted to the ground :-\

Don't forget: Inside cockpit view confirmed.

(We better have realistic camera shake for that)

Car damage, sounds awesome. That and the dashboard view.

You will never see this in any GT game. Manufactures don't want their cars flipping around in a video game.

I read somewhere on this forum that they wanted GT4 cars to flip, but the PS2 didn't have enough "juice" to make it happen.
