Polyphony Digital's Kazunori Yamauchi revealed model details on the highly anticipated Gran Turismo 5 for PlayStation 3. During Sony's Tokyo Game Show 2009 press conference, the following modes and features were revealed:
- GT Mode: World Map, My Garage, Car Dealer, Tuning Shop, Championship Race, and License Test.
- Online: Open Lobby, Text/Voice Chat, Private Room, Online Photo Album, Online Replay Album, and you can export replays to YouTube.
- Photo Mode: Photo Drive, Photo Stage.
- GT TV: Improved UI, export of videos to PSP, and progressive downloading.
While everyone expects a new Gran Turismo game to have improved graphics and physics (don't worry, they're there), the connectivity of GT5 is really interesting. I know loads of gamers that will be thrilled to upload their exploits to YouTube or transfer them to their PSPs to show off their driving skills. The new additions are super interesting and really round out the overall offering.
What do you think of these modes? Anything in particular strike you?
