Gran Turismo HD info
Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi has let a bit more information out to Eurogamer and IGN. While many of the basic facts about the game have been correct, the physical software for the Classic edition should ship at an extremely low price, possibly as little as the cost of the disc and manual. The number of digital downloads for Classic may be a bit higher than anticipated; Yamauchi mentions a target of 770 cars, 51 tracks, and 4,500 "items." For GT fans though, the most exciting announcement has to be the overdue addition of car damage. It won't be integrated right away, but Yamauchi figures it should be introduced by 2007. Within a few months of that, we should also expect to see new AI routines. In the long run there are plans for a PS2 game nicknamed "Gran Turismo for Boys," and Yamauchi says he hopes to connect Gran Turismo PSP with the PS3 series.
