A delicious stream of information has been unveiled for the PS3′s hotly anticipated racing simulation Gran Turismo 5, after it has previous remained silent. Taken from the official website, it has been revealed that the final game will include 1000 vehicles and 170 premium models (presumably DLC?).

Along with that most requested of features; vehicle deformation and possibly even rollover physics.

Considering that Polyphony utterly strive for painstaking perfection, to the point that the game has taken over 5 years to roll out since GT4, this will hopefully imply that it will boast the most advanced and realistic collisions to grace a video game to date. It’s time to get excited.

There is just one glaring and somewhat important omission from this announcement however, and that is a solid release date. Still, there is always the Tokyo Game Show…

  1. This game looks to be worth me buying a PS3.
