GT5: New Video Footage Impresses

Videos grabbed from the chaps over at Gamersyde show off Gran Turismo 5’s increasingly beautiful bodywork – it looks like the most recent build demoed at the Tokyo Game Show is, as you’d expect, really starting to show the game off properly.

Streaming remotely from the site is currently disabled so you’ll need to do some downloading or face some adverts, but on the whole they’re absolutely worth it.


First up is footage of the Eiger mountains in the rain.  There’re three videos, showing off various vehicles but mainly demonstrating the lovely weather effects.

Then there’s confirmation of Trial Mountain, one of my favourite evergreen GT tracks and it’s fair to say it’s looking better than ever.

Thirdly, the all-time classic American raceway that is Laguna Seca, complete with that famous double hairpin.  It’s no surprise that it’s in, but it’s good to see it anyway.

Then there’s night footage of the massive 24 hour Le Mans circuit – complete with wonderful lighting effects.

And finally, for our US-based readers (and anyone not offended by left, left jokes) there’s some NASCAR footage.

  1. You can literally hear the Forza fanboys crying.

    • why? both are excellent game series. As much as GT5 is going to be brilliant I can’t imagine 360 gamers getting jelious over it given how good forza is

      • He did say Fanboys, not fans. Big difference

  2. nice vids, there are also ones of the rain on this site. Plus Volkswagon racing which looks hilarious.

  3. November needs to hurry the f*** up.

  4. Just pre-ordered a copy off Amazon(, I’m not paying my left leg for a signature version, so I got the standard. It came with 2 “stealth” cars: A Mazda 787B and a Maclaren F1. Yay!

  5. Looking brilliant as GT should be.

  6. Simply amazing.

  7. Can’t wait for this game. I wonder how it will affect ps3 sales?

  8. sob … sob … sob … I want this game … sob … sob … still not out yet … sob … sob .. still got to wait …

  9. can’t wait for it, but got the feeling they have spent too long putting daft vehicles in like karts (looked crap) and VW camper vans (looked even crapper) when they could have released it and had them as downloads that only the mental would download.

    • That’s me, I must be mental, I reckon that driving around the corkscrew at Laguna Seca in a Type 1 Splitscreen would be hilarious in a race…especially a TSA race….as long as the suspension and drive is realistic, it would be like a submarine diving lol.

  10. looks amazing every year
