Gran Turismo 5 coming in March next year

The game will feature 950 cars including new hybrid and electric models and 20 driving locations

The latest installation in the hit "Gran Turismo" driving simulation series for the PlayStation 3 will be coming in the first quarter of next year, Sony announced Thursday at the Tokyo Game Show.

The game had been rumored to hit store shelves this year but won't be available until March 2010 in Japan, said Kazunori Yamauchi during a news conference. Launch dates for other markets were not announced and pricing was not discussed.

Despite giving fans a few more months to wait for the title, Yamauchi provided more information about the game that might make it worth the wait. The game will feature 950 cars including new hybrid and electric models and 20 driving locations. Other improvements will include simulated damage and movable objects on the race track.

Several different game-play modes will also be offered and it will be possible to export videos from the game to YouTube or capture 8-megapixel quality resolution images. The game will also deliver an online element including the Gran Turismo TV feature that was introduced in the previous edition.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
