    What do you mean?

    I do ofcourse notice LOD scaling for the other cars in the race, as the ones furthest away looks to be significantly lower poly. I cant see a diff from your car vs the showroom model thought

    Yes what Oste is saying is that there's not an obvious (or any) drop down for the main car, or other cars when they close to the screen, as in the dealer ship.

    Anyone here who has played the game at expo knows if GT5 still has the ugly shadow artifacting as found in GT5P ?

    I should've made it clear..I was talking about Self Shadows in Cockpit view. :smile:

    I actually dont tend to bother if a racing game has Low res Environment shadows [unless they are real flickery] as I think they are never noticeable in racing games because of the camera distance & constant movement which causes them to pass in few mili seconds. But talkinga bout cockpit view self shadows its entirely diff

    Odd, I can't find Gamespot's article on their Polyphony studio visit.

    Here's G4TV's take:
    http://g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/6...Home-of-Gran-Turismo---Polyphony-Digital.html

    The report is somewhat disappointing because they said Kazunori gave a lengthy presentation of GT5 but all I could see is a photo gallery and no in-depth writing. :(

    French interview of Kaz by Benoit Trelluyer a french pilot of GT 500 in Japan, he was GT 500 champion with Team Nismo.

    It is not into the interview but Kaz said that GT 5 will have day/night cycle and rain and some tyre management. sorry for my english, it is not my native language.

    EDIT: the interview is gone. I think too many revelation maybe.

    I have the complete interview if someone is interested. Some NDA seems to have been violated.

    Finaly the interview is online again with some image and a video.

    Someone translated the interview. Is it accurate ?
    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=17793041&postcount=11972

    Another attempt:
    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=17793118&postcount=11983

    EDIT: About the leak in day/night cycle and other features:
    http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost.php?p=17792953&postcount=11964

    Not sure why these are not mentioned in the interview itself.

    I'm french and they don't talk about this details into the interview. It is more something they talk with Kaz off camera or something they saw on GT 5 demonstration. if you watch the video interview some GT 5 screen are blurred.

    Well, if it's not officially confirmed, things may change.

    Here's Joystiq's interview:
    http://www.joystiq.com/2009/09/28/tgs-2009-interview-gran-turismo-5s-kazunori-yamauchi/

    It has more details on the damage but I like these questions better:

    Given the amount of effort invested in simulation, I thought Gran Turismo should be a driving educational title too.

    Do they sell controller with full-sized steering wheel ? ^_^

    Also happy to know that they have modes for beginner drivers and racers.

    Found GameSpot article on their UK site:
    http://uk.gamespot.com/sports/blogs...talks-gran-turismo-5.html?tag=topslot;thumb;1

    Not much details in general, but they did clarify the online support:

    Other enhancements:

    ... plus brief mention of new course and hybrid cars.

    EDIT: GT5 screenshots: http://www.gamespot.com/ps3/driving...convert&om_clk=gsimage&tag=images;header;more

    Finally, the official feature list:
    http://us.gran-turismo.com/us/news/d5075.html

    Compared to the leaked list...
    * Track variation/layout has increased from "over 60" to "over 70"
    * No mention of head tracking but Kazunori mentioned that they are working on some PSEye feature in new interview
    * No mention of deformation in damage (The leaked article has slightly more details on types of damages on standard and premium models). Now damage is for all cars with more destruction in the race cars.
    * Car models reduced from 1000 to 950
    * No mention of custom sound track
    Official list does not mention any racing franchises like WRC but it's in the interviews.

    I guess day/night tracks or cycle, plus rain may be in the works but not confirmed for GT5 yet.

    EDIT: Old leaked article here

    Weather cycle confirmed? I'm highly suspecting that since it's not mentioned anywhere else. Also a convincing weather cycle would mean all those environment shadows must be dynamic considering they're static at the moment. Got a feeling it'll affect the performance too much with everything else going on though.

    will GT5 use a different physics engine than Prologue, or will it just be a tuning of the same engine? I remember reading that GT:HD was using GT4's physics, but i thought Prologue was supposed to be diff. maybe i'm mistaken, i hope i am.

    Weather is not in the game. At 1:29, Kazunori says PD could do it if they want to, but he didn't commit to it.


    EDIT:
    If you look at the old Japanese leaked article, it highlighted the differences between GT5 and GT5P where appropriate (e.g., how menu, GTTV are minor evolution of the GT5P system). But under car physics, it says "New physics simulation". It may be a major change or addition.

    Phhpfft, tells me nothing about GT5. Microsoft employees use iPhone and PS3 also. Nothing to get excited about.

    Well that's what the French source says and they were in PD's office. Though it could have been implied...maybe it won't be a release day feature. Also we already know that Night racing is in it - because we've seen it.
