New Gran Turismo 5 trailer – Click above to watch video after the jump

Now that we have an official launch date for Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 5, it's hard to contain our anticipation. It doesn't help that the company keeps teasing us with new trailers for the game, each showing some new bit of detail that we hadn't foreseen or been previously able to confirm. The latest spot features a little voiceover action from none other than Sebastian Vettel. It's hard to tell exactly what part the Formula One guru will play in the game, and our imaginations are running wild as a result.

The new trailer also gives us a glimpse at three of the most hotly talked about features of the game – damage rendering, night races and the Top Gear test track. There's even a cameo by The Stig himself. Some say he lacks opposable thumbs and controls joysticks through a series of ultra high-frequency squeals. All we know is, he's in Gran Turismo 5, and we can't wait to get our greedy little paws on the game. We've never been so excited for November 2. Take a peek past the jump to see the video.

        I don't know, but you could just pull a Cartman and go bury yourself in a snowbank up in the mountains.

        Just don't trust your whereabouts to anyone named "Butters".

      I've owned every GT game (minus prologue). This might be the reason to finally get a PS3. I do remember reserving my GT4 months ahead of time only to wait months after the date to get it. I echo the sentiments of others: Hopefully they hit the release date.

        Same here, but I've had some issues with Sony in the past since GT4.

        Needless to say I'll be buying a USED PS3, and a second hand copy of GT5. I'll wait awhile after the newness wears off I can find an honest opinion on if its worth it to buy. Second hand, of course.

        Sorry Sony, ya shoulda warrantied my car stereo.

      Forza 3 is a update on Forza 2. Nothing wrong with that.

      This basically a reboot of the series. The difference is previous titles have pushed the boundaries of the console's hardware, this is no different. They are fully taking advantage of the hardware in this game.

      One of the reasons it took too long is attention to detail and the fact it took so long to make one car.

      I wasn't going to buy a PS3 until this game came out. As I said, Sony is fully expecting to move some hardware this winter and it won't be powered by the Move, Little Big Planet 2 or some FPS, this is the king of games, it appeals to a somewhat narrow market, but that market buys all the games. They have expanded it by adding NASCAR too it and with no official stand alone NASCAR game this year, people that traditionally didn't buy GT (though RARE) will buy this game solely for that but get a much greater experience than any EA Racing Game.

      I don't have to wait, the ALMS season will be ending about the time this game becomes available, but also many other series will be in their stretch run by then as well, plus the NFL and College Football would have started.

        That's an interesting point, Gruv. I wonder what kind of effect GT5 will have on actual vehicle sales?
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm wondering if the Nascar fans will buy this game, race a few races, realize how totally boring and pointless Nascar racing is, and start to become fans of WRC and GT racing. I mean, I think Gran Turismo, as a series, was responsible for getting Subaru and Mitsubishi to bring the WRX and Evo over here.... it would be wild if it converted thousands of Nascar fans to ACTUAL racing.

      LOL at the Tesla on the Top Gear track.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Why was there engine noise coming from the Tesla flying by?

      The PS3 is worth owning apart from GT5. It is an incredible machine. Home Theater magazine recently rated its Blu-ray player the best on the planet in terms of speed and overall performance. Add Netflix streaming and the ability to play downloaded video/audio files plugged in through USB, and this thing is a complete home entertainment package in itself.

      Some say that he's the family man that Guile was talking about in Street Fighter II....and that he's the only person to successfully bring Aerith back to life. All we know is, he's called the Stig.
      • 4 Years Ago
      It does not worth the wait. I don't see anything super amazing about this release.....
        • 4 Years Ago
        It has a HONDA CIVIC! if you're still not excited after that then you have no soul.
        • 4 Years Ago
        ROFL!!!. Oh man I remember how every car sounded like Honda civic in GT4, I hated that so much >
      • 4 Years Ago
      I guess it's a good thing for me that I haven't really been waiting for this game... until now. Seriously this game has everything, superb graphics, all types of racing cars and most importantly THE STIG. Just need to get me a ps3 (about time) and a 3D TV.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Ok I'm in.


      What do they keep in the big vault?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Saw this earlier...they better not be slap me in the face again...
      • 4 Years Ago
      OOOOOH SH!!!!!T!!!!! It's finally here!!! Official Top Gear Test Track AND The Stig?!

      To Forza 3, From GT5: "It's Over...It's over now, move over....It's my time now, it's over....The game's...shut...down....SORRY!"

      To be honest, Forza never really had anything, tit's were just keeping the seat of the throne warm for us, until the true Emperor arrived.
        • 4 Years Ago
        For "us"?

        I'm sure you had a lot to do with the development of GT5...

        :rollseyes:
