From the PS Blog liveblog:

NASCAR will be involved, as will Rally Racing, and of course the big boys (Ferraris and faster). Damage modeling present as well, which I know will make many of you happy.

Not much was revealed in the trailer, but those are the key points to take from it.

Update 1.06 Info:
http://us.gran-turis...news/d5552.html

Didn't catch a release date on this (could have missed it - I'm at work) so until I hear one I'm not getting excited for this game. The wait for 3 and 4 seemed like a lifetime of "when it's done" comments and GT on the PSP has been coming out since like 2005.

Inclusion of NASCAR is awesome, and a great marketing point, but I'm guessing the career mode will only have ~500 mile races? I've only played GT3, but that's the sort of format I remember.

I was wishing NASCAR went back to Papyrus after EA dropped the license, but this is probably the next best thing. I just hope they are able to get all the NASCAR tracks.

I find it hard to believe that the rally STI crashing is actual gameplay.

Nearly 3 years on PS3 and still no sim racer. Grid IS NOT A SIM. Sony should have seen the delays of GT5 coming and paid some 3rd party to put out a competent sim racer to tide us over.

Yea, they don't do any racing in NASCAR:roll:.
The inclusion of NASCAR is the only reason I'm somewhat interested in GT5. I completely lost interest in the game after I got into Forza. Depending on how much NASCAR is actually in this, I still may not care.

This game will be one of the most epic Sim racing game of this generation. I got GT5:Prologue and it has already impressed me with that kind of graphic. I can't wait to see what GT5 has in store. May be I will be finally get back into drifting seriously with GT5.

So they are combinging multiple racing types into one....good luck...it is hard enough to get just one right much less a bunch in one game. I hope it turns out well but if the AI isnt tuned for each specific type of racing this could be very bad

All of your fail to notice that there was no mention of release date, not even a 2010, or 2011. My guess? This game isn't coming out til 2025 :P

A race is a race, as long as the A.I.. isn't in that "cars in a string" mode I don't care. The goal is to win the race, so as long as they're trying to win the race then that's good enough for me.

I think that once people get a closer look at GT5 (which is like 3 games in one) I don't think Forza 3 is going to be able to truly compete with it.

You know nothing about racing then. Techniques, styles, skills, etc are different for each type of racing. You cant be a drifter and apply that skill set to Nascar. You can't jump out of a Nascar and drive a rally car the same way. The AI should and needs to adjust for each race type.

Polyphony hasnt exactly gotten street racing perfect yet (crash modeling, online play, shitty AI, etc). So what hopes do I have that they fixed all that shit PLUS added new racing types which are also good?

Your hope is based on the fact that the game has been in development for roughly 5 years.

so basically forza has everything that you're asking for... but regardless of forza, hopefully, Polyphony can get their stuff together. I don't think there's no excuse at this point, they've had years to perfect this game. So I definitely don't want to see all that cars on a string A.I. But if you think about it, adding WRC and NASCAR has exceeded what any of us expected, so I'm hoping that they will exceed our expectations reference the A.I. You're right I don't know about racing... but I will agree with you, they need to get it right. If you're going to be the "Real Driving Simulator" then be real.

Forza 3 will be very good but 360 will always be handicapped by that toy wheel. I don't get how Microsoft who wants to topple the GT series is dumb enough to not support Logitech wheels or put out a premium wheel. But Sony is even dumber for giving Microsoft this opening.

I dont think the wheel peripheral is a factor. From what I gather the VAST majority of gamers into racing games dont have a wheel peripheral. Wheel or not, at the end of the day it is the quality and finish of the game that gets put out.
