From GT1 to GT5: A Gran Turismo Retrospective
Now that Sony and Polyphony Digital have finally announced the official date of the release of Gran Turismo 5, you could have probably heard the collective sighs of relief from Gran Turismo fans all over the world. Justifiably so because the wait hasn’t been exactly smooth, to say the list. From an immeasurable number of delays to the already five-year long wait, there’s not a fan of the racing simulator franchise in this world that can honestly say that their wait hasn’t come with a mix of anxiety and frustration.
It’s not that we’re chomping at the bits to play the game - okay, maybe just a little - but it’s more of just wanting to know when it was going to be released. So, if the November 2 release date does push through, you can take it to the bank that everything will be forgiven faster than a sinner’s confession.
In the meantime, Sony and PD have released a retrospective on the entire Gran Turismo franchise, dating back to the first game that was released seemingly centuries ago - it was 1997, to be exact. It’s a good way to gauge just how far the game has come, from the then-out of this world Playstation game to a whole new revolutionary 3D experience for the upcoming GT5 game on the PS3.
It’s not going to make the wait any easier, but the video is still a must-watch for fans of the game.
