    Some more info:

    ■ User Interface
    The Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, and the same design concept. The icons change color. Able to track the movement of Cockpit Camera interface (confirmed in full 3-D. The camera can be fully manipulated and you can opt to have your head tracked by the PSEye)

    What does this mean “Represented is full fall in vehicles”?

    Sounds great though

    I loved Gran Turismo 3, will be picking this up.

    Forza supports a feature I’ve always wanted to try, getting one game to run across multiple tv’s using multiple systems. I’ve seen one a setup of three identical tv’s running side by side acting as one tv.

    Hopefully the license tests will be more forgiving on me, it took me forever to get that S license.

    angus, using the ps eye would be so much better as it tracks your movements. that’s the kinda use that motion control needs to offer.

    also i’m disappointed that not all the cars can be damaged.

    ah man, GT didnt just put itself back at the top of the podium, they destroyed the other racing games in the process! I might still get Forza 3 tho, but it’s about damn time they get damage in there. And 1000 vehicles. crazy.

    the head tracking bit would be kinda hard tho, seeing as if you turn your head, you’d have to still be looking at the screen.

    I’ll be picking it up. Should be fantastic. Still play prologue from time to time. May have to get a wheel. I hope the damage isn’t too punishing, It certainly means you’ll have to be a better driver.
