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

  1. Holy **** 3 discs? Wow that’s huge.

  2. Lol thats gotta be a world record of space used on a single game ^^

  3. I have trouble believing that this game wouldn’t fit on a single BD. I can maybe see it spanning two discs, but even that’s a stretch.

  4. I think that is a special edition with a whole bunch of HD behind the scenes of cars and how they make cars. No way this game will not fit on one disc. Has to be bonus materials.

  5. Maybe a sound track disc, behind the scenes disc and game disc?

  6. 3 bd discs
    i wonder if its going to be on single lair bd discs(23gb discs)
    or if its going to be on dual lair bd discs(46gb discs)

    if anyone knows anything about what discs its going to use please send me a mesage on

  7. Whoa If it is

  8. You know whats awesome !
    i couldn’t tell what video was real life and what was gt 5 ! WAAAA cant wait to play this

  9. My only reaction is just…wow.

  10. good lord man!!!

  11. wow i am in awe

  12. I think it was an empty box, because they said that Kazanouri was still deciding on the car on the cover and because the game has probably not hit production as of yet

  13. can’t Polyphony just use the new 250gb bd disks or have they filled that out?

  14. Talk about double standards. So suddenly multi disc games are ok now. Gotcha.

    • Chances are, discs 2/3 will be bonus content like “The Making of GT5” etc.

      It’s not going to be actual game content. Which is an entirely different story.
