Oh man.. I LOVE the Gran Turismo series. I've been playing it since my dad picked up the first Gran Turismo for me. These graphics are absolutely beautiful.

As for the "No Damage" debate, as far as I see it, you don't have real pedals, a real wheel, and a car seat bumping you around, so I don't think it's fair to have damage. When your controls are limited to how accurate your thumb is, I don't think damage is something we should have to worry about.

Think GT5 will be a console seller?

The only reason I bought a PS1 was for GT1...then we were graced with the mighty GT2. I bought the PS2 for GT3 then we were blessed with GT4. I think I may need to get a PS3 for the next series of Gran Turismo games :respect:

The list for GT5 (according to some interviews) is gonna be 500+ (around the same as GT4).

Now I want to get a PS3.
Played the demo on a 52" plasma in hi-def.
The demo had no AA a little HDR and no motion blur which the Prologue screenshots show.
But the online leader board made the demo addictive.
Would never have expected drifting in the game.

There is 2x AA @ 1080p, and 4x AA @ 720p...

This game does have a bit of HDR, look at the shadows and the car reflections.

There is a slight motion blur if you pan the camera left or right...the environment does blur, like in real life.

Drifting is added to the game to show off the new physics. Just like the gravity gun in HL2.

Lol
Yeah thats what I meant.
At 1080p on a 52" plasma the jaggies in the demo are obvious with a little bit of HDR and no motion blur well from what I could see.
I looked at it and thought it this it?!
Until my brother showed me some screenshots of prologue which deos have motion blur and the edges of the cars are actually smooth.
