Gran Turismo 5 Information thread

Gran Turismo 5

Information thread

 

In the OP of this thread I will be compiling a list of links to any useful information relevant to Gran Turismo 5 posted here at PSN NA. 

Please PM me or post ITT with anything you feel qualifies as relevant information for Gran Turismo 5.

 

Large reams of actual and confirmed information about GT5 will exist soon after release of the game, and this post will be where you should check first. 

 

Official GT5 Information and unofficial GT5 user manuals wanted here include these topics:

GT5 screenshots and box shots, note when posting to limit width to 800px to prevent page stretching.

Media previews and reviews of the full game.

User reviews of GT5 features.

Included vehicles.

Offline race reports.

GT5 (and GT5P) compatible hardware, such as steering wheel sets.

 

If you have the time to maintain a thread about any portion of GT5 content properly during the lifespan of GT5, then you certainly can do so.  Typical subjects that often have their own thread for past GT titles include (but are not limited to) Licence test write ups, track lists, overall car lists, prize/reward car lists., etc.  Until a volunteer presents themself to take that on, that information can and should be posted ITT and I will deal with it.

I was gonna start this thread Clacks, then I though, what's wrong with MastrGT's GT5 News, Media, and Comments thread? It's been going for longer and serves the same purpose.

The only thing wrong with that thread is that it's huge and not very well organized.  I applaud Clacksman for starting this thread and I'll even give him some advanced applause for updating the first post as information is added.  Now if we could get someone to sticky it so it's always on the top, I think this would be a great thing.

MGTs thread is an organization of the entire GT franchise. I think clax is after somthing inthe mold of the GTPSP info thread. A place to post hard information about the game, and a place where newcomers can drop in and get just the recent, relevant GT5 stuff.

I thought so too, but our favourite moderator asked if I would take this on so away we go. 

 

There's nothing wrong with the GTNMC thread you referenced for anyone who's kept up with it.  Without information (and/or links) edited into the OP of a big thread, the lazy ones will just post a thread instead of reading.

Sorry to say, but unless this thread gets stickied to the top of page 1, I have a feeling it will be just as useless as some of the other threads. Is it that hard for some people to wrap their heads around the idea that, if you want people to post specific things in specific threads, you need to make those threads easy to find, not having to go digging thru page after page of threads that all start looking the same just to find the right one. So, without sticking this thread, in a few days/week, you'll get the same thing that happened last night/this morning with someone making a post and then having replys stating "this should go into 'posts link to the appropaite thread'." and just turning more people off to this corner of the forums.

 

With that said, Kudo's clacksman

No offense to anyone, just stating fact.
Just my $.02 $.01

This thread is currenly completely useless.

 

Once there's some real information about GT5 around for me to link to, I'll request a sticky.
