With the release of Forza 3 last week, the competition between Turn 10 and Polyphony Digital in order to produce the best driving simulator on the planet has reached new levels. While 360 owners and most media sites who have reviewed the new installment of Forza have dubbed it the greatest thing since the toaster, Polyphony Digital is hard at work in order to push the boundaries of simulation racing even further. Many times while playing Forza 3 (yes, I enjoy it), I always wonder why Turn 10 didn’t implement the ability to create your own tracks for online play. One would think that with the extensive customization that Forza is known for that track editing would be the next logical step — Polyphony Digital seems to agree as the developer has recently confirmed track editing for Gran Turismo 5.

Speaking to a website known as “Everything 4 Gamers” (take this with a grain of salt please, not sure how reliable they are), a PD representative stated, “Yes it will have a track editor. You will be able to rebuild a track from scratch or edit the tracks that are already put in Gran Turismo 5.”

It should go without saying that this, if true, pushes the online component of Gran Turismo 5 to heights never seen before in a driving simulator. The ability to have every race essentially be a new racing experience is something a lot of gamers who have ADD will look forward to (I know I will). We’ll have to see if any more reputable sources pick this one up, but for now, it seems as though Track Editing is a go.

  1. When you hover the mouse over Grand Turismo…you get Frorza 3 ad..


  2. if this is true , along with the other rumors, gt5 is gouing to be the best racing game in history, goty, masterpiece

  3. Icing on the cake.

  4. If forza 3 was released by the same time as GT5 it might of been as good but they wanted to rush it.

  5. Track Editor? I thought that was only for Modnation Racers. I’buy this game instead of Gran Turismo, it seems funnier

    I think the track editor might be more focusing on the street circuits, choose different ways to go round the place… Or with proper racetracks, it’ll be that you can pick any of the little sub roads and routes to make up your own versions… That would be MUCH easier for PD and probably more likely tbh, when you consider the Insane amounts of detail put into every track that’ll be there… XD
