    Japan Gets Titanium Blue PS3 And Gran Turismo 5 Bundle

    It was first revealed in 2006, it took Sony years to develop it, but now we finally have a release date (at least for Japan): Gran Turismo 5 will go on sale in this country on November 3 [JP]. And not too surprisingly, Sony Japan will be offering a special bundle that includes a PS3 in an “original” color, namely Titanium Blue. Read More

    European Signature Edition Of Gran Turismo 5 Has Many Things, Costs Many Euros

    Once again, the Europeans get all the fun. Sony Europe just announced the collector’s edition (technically the Signature Edition) of Gran Turismo 5. It comes with many things! You get the game, obviously, but you also get a “metal sculpted box finished in SLS AMG Obsidian Black”; an “exclusive GT branded SLS AMG 1:43 model car”; a “GT leather wallet… Read More

  • Video: Latest Gran Turismo 5 trailer shows off something called Nascar

    http://www.viddler.com/simple_on_site/ec28ee9 Hmm, Nascar… it’s a bit too Southern for my latte-drinking, North-eastern tendencies, but if Yamauchi deems it worthy of Gran Turismo! So behold, the latest trailer of the game. Read More

    Video: Gran Turismo 5′s insane “Data Logger Visualization Technology”

    So… “Data Logger Visualization Technology.” That’s a long and uninformative name. Technology that visualizes… data. Data that was at some point logged. What they’re trying to say is that they loaded up a real race car with monitoring gadgets and took note of a bunch of data — steering, throttle, G-force, and all that stuff — and logged it into… Read More

    Gran Turismo 5 delayed. How does "to be announced" grab you?

    Bad news, sports fans: Gran Turismo 5 has been delayed. Again. Go ahead and act surprised, I’ll give you a few moments. New release date? “To be announced.” Read More

  • You might be playing Uncharted 2 on September 30

    You might be playing Uncharted 2 on September 30

    I love how the word “leak” can apply to anything from Deep Throat to PS3 video game release dates. Such is life. Anyway, the release dates for several Sony video games has supposedly “leaked” to a French site. The big news: expect to see Uncharted 2 on September 30. Oh, and perhaps a Michael Jackson edition of Sing Star this fall. Read More

  • Gran Turismo 5 at 240fps – why?

    Gran Turismo 5 at 240fps – why?


    Because the human eye has an effective “refresh rate” of around 30 frames per second, there is a certain point at which even major increases or decreases in frames per second will have no visible effect. I’d place that number, off the top of my head, around 100fps — at that point your eye isn’t going to “catch” the display in mid-update, as the… Read More

    CrunchArcade: Car damage finally coming to "Gran Turismo 5 Prologue"

    This is something that’s bothered me from the first time I played GT2, and three titles later it’s finally coming. IGN interviewed Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of Gran Turismo, and he finally confirmed that car damage will be coming as early as fall for Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. IGN: We’ve held off from this, but surely everyone’s been asking about damage in Gran Turismo 5. Read More

    F1 making an appearance in GT5

    Today is like therapy for me. First, I admit that the iPhone is sort of great and that I want one and now I’m admitting that I want a PS3. Yikes. Well, it certainly helps when Sony has the exclusive rights to Gran Turismo and GT5 is about to drop. Ugh. Leaving tradition behind in the dust, Polyphony Digital is including an F1 Ferrari car for you to purchase for 2 million credits. You can… Read More

  • GT5 Prologue dated

    GT5 Prologue dated

    I’ll be purchasing a PS3 on April 17 because that’s the day GT5: Prologue is hitting store shelves in the US. You can also download via the PlayStation store, but I haven’t found anything that says it will/might be cheaper than the retail version, which is $40 and is currently on pre-order from Amazon. It’s also worth noting that the date, March 18, on Amazon is… Read More
