One of the things that make the Gran Turismo franchise so awesome is the undeniable realism the game provides to those playing it. Now, Sony and Polyphony Digital are taking it a step further by introducing a new wrinkle into the game, and something that we, quite frankly, have wondered why it hasn’t been included yet: car damage.

In the years that we’ve played the GT franchise, we’ve always wondered what would happen if our cars hit the wall or run straight into another vehicle. But for all its realism, it always felt like playing bumper cars with these cars bouncing off of each other the moment they crash into each other.

With GT5, however, hitting another car won’t be as pleasant as you’re more than likely to damage your car beyond repair. This new feature may not sit well with those reckless lots that prefer to hit and run their way to the checkered flag, but for us that truly enjoy the thrill of racing, it adds a whole new dimension in wheel-to-wheel action, something that should make the whole GT5 experience that much more awesome.

Wow1 This feature completes the new level of GT5 in racing game. I think its GT only that offers such feature they really put the realism in the virtual game.

I bought a PSP the week it was released and waited YEARS for the Mobile version to arrive as they pushed out the release date again and again before I wrote it off as vaporware and sold my PSP. I’ll believe this has arrived when I see it.

well, a good thing that the damage cause is in the video game not in real.

Hahaha, their the very first racing game who introduces me to “tire damage” and it just keeps getting better by introducing me the greatness of tuning up your car.
