    I think this is the best forum for this news but with the amount of gaming related topic's cropping up maybe a sub-forum needs to be created.

    Anyway back to the news that many racing gamers have been waiting for.

    Gran Turismo 5 finally has a release date!!

    Gran Turismo 5 will be officially launched in North and Latin America on November 2, 2010 and in Europe and Japan on November 3, 2010. Release dates for other regions are yet to be announced.

    http://uk.ps3.ign.com/articles/109/1098188p1.html

    It's interesting to note that Adrian Newey and Vettel have been involved in the development of the game but it's not known if the Red Bull car will be included.

    There will be over 70 tracks in the game including Dunsfold Park, the Top Gear test track and many other real world circuits including Daytona International Speedway, Nürburgring Nordschleife, Tsukuba Circuit, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Monza circuit, a special karting track based around the Piazza del Campo - a historic public space in Tuscany, Italy used for the Palio di Siena, and two new Rome and Madrid city circuits.

    Personally I can't wait. Actually I've been waiting far too long since GT4 so its a good job they have already started work on GT6!

    The guy who is in charge of development has an almost psychopathic demand for detail, if the cars weren't going to be in it I very much doubt he would allow any statement to the contrary. I once heard a story that the online multiplayer functionality was canned from GT4 because it was running at 1 frame per second lower than single player and therefore deemed unacceptable :o

    As far as the release goes, I think the game has been read for about 6 months, they just got persuaded by Sony to hold it back to add support for the new move controls.

    In any event finally the best driving simulator the grace the gaming community coming to the best console available, gonna be a fun xmas :D

    I've got a feeling this will be the gaming equivalent of the Segrada Familia in Barcelona, It will never be completed as there will always been something else to add to the game.

    After sooo much waiting i am not that excited about the fact they advertise 1000 cars, but don't tell you that actually 900 of them are made up of Honda Civics from every year, every model, about 3 billion Skylines and NSXs, quite literally 17 Honda s2000s + 4 more from tuning companies!? 24 Mitsubishi Lancers!? etc etc etc

    Anyhow, time to buy a playstation. :)

    It is quite the game. Bought a Driving Force GT to go with it and to replace my old wheel, which has also made F1 2010 a lot more fun as well. Had a bit of an idiot moment though - came out of the pits in Bahrain P1 and wondered why I couldn't slow down. Turns out I forgot to plug the pedals in LOL

    Edit - I now have S.Yamamoto as my B-Spec driver (names are random, had to re-roll lots of times)!

    I've just got the same wheel too! Its excellent and makes a huge difference for F1.

    One of my B-Spec drivers is P.Griffin and the other is C.Cole.

    How are you guys coping with the Elise on the top gear challenge? Its a fiesty bugger to control.

    Coping is not the word. So much spinning.

    I bought one to use in the British lightweights trophy and it was handling the same as on the Top Gear track, the main problem is the tyres. The only way to overcome the problems is by using very fine throttle control. Once you can master the Elise the game becomes so much easier. My racing version is a joy to drive when its under control but just a touch too much power and your in a wall.

    I helped a friend get started and get his B and A licences on Sunday all silver or above, also with the GT force wheel.. the one to have ATM it seems.

    I want GT now! and F1, but it needs a little investment on my part. PS3 for one, the GT wheel and a new TV in good time. I may wait until the new AV 3D projectors come out.

    Anyone know more about these? You can get VGA ones now, but apparently not for PAL/NTSC type signals for a few months yet...

    The Sony centre in Leeds had an offer on the other week for a 40" 3D tv, 2 sets of glasses, a 320GB PS3 and GT5 all for £1200.

    My OH picked up the wheel for £79 at argos which seems to be the best price available for it. It is worth every penny! I love the little dial on the front so you can adjust the level of traction control and front/rear differential while driving.

    The Sony deal looks pretty good, ill see what the local ones to me are doing, however i would still love to have a 3D screen measured in feet rather than inches :D There is also a Currys offer of a budget 46"? LCD 3D with blu-ray player for £850 or something similar...

    I need to dig my Recaro seat/frame from the loft too. It has the older GT wheel for GT4 mounted to it and looking at the new wheel the mounts etc are all the same :thumbsup: I saw the new controls for the TCS etc, sounds really good although i didn't get as far as figuring how they work in the short time i spent doing the licences yesterday...

    :rolleyes: :snigger:

    Still kinda' off topic; I may have to stick with something like that anyway. This site is suggesting $10 000 on release for this HD 3D projector :embarrassed:

    http://www.i4u.com/33027/lg-cf3d-first-full-hd-3d-single-lens-projector


    I remember sourcing some large LED TVs for a company i used to work for for advertising on. We started with big ideas... we eventually settled on one, re-con, 4x2m screen for £40k lol. Big TVs aren't that cheap. Dam.

    I've only tried it on long courses with vastly different sections. The Le Mans course is ideal for practising changing settings as you have those lovely long straights to twiddle settings and a little twisty bit to try them out. With practise I'm sure you could alter settings between corners but last time I tried that I missed the apex totally and ended up backwards looking at a monkey in a tree!
