We knew this game was going to be massive, but according to a press release by Mercedes Benz to promote its SLS AMG, they showed a clip of the car in GT5 and also a peek on what the box art will be like. To say the least the Packaging for GT5 looks to be huge and can possibly fit up to 3 discs.
Gran Turismo Planet had some interesting ideas on what this could possibly mean:
“Gran Turismo uses one single physics calculation model, so they simply enter the parameters for each car, and the handling characteristics play themselves out within the game. As Yamauchi says, If the original car is made well, it’ll drive well.”
“We get a closer look at the 3D model of the SLS AMG in Gran Turismo 5, along with a corner from the Nurburgring Nordschleife.”
“Mercedes’ narrarator suggests that Yamauchi is considering putting the new SLS AMG on the cover, but Yamauchi’s following comments (along with the box art seen earlier) all but confirm it will be the star of the show. As he explains, it will probably be the most exciting car in the world when GT5 is released. He also was sure to mention: Fans of Gran Turismo 5 really have something to be excited about.”
If the game turns out to be on 3 Blu-Ray Discs, then we can only use one word to describe it. Massive
