Gran Turismo 5 is a PlayStation 3 exclusive racing sim that is backed by the success of its four mammoth predecessors. GT5 will feature over 700 cars including for the first time ever, Ferrari vehicles. Also for the first time ever will be a complete online mode as well as real-time In-Car view to immerse gamers into the racing experience. Set to release in 2008, Gran Turismo 5 is a must own for any PS3 racing enthusiast.
