Just think, a lot of us were saying the same thing about GT1.  isn't the GT series about 5 years old now?

Developed by Polyphony Digital Inc., Gran Turismo 4 uses an all-new physics engine coupled with revolutionary technology to deliver enhanced, if not perfected, game physics and graphics providing a near-realistic
automotive racing simulation.

,

In Gran Turismo 4, the characteristics of the cars are realistically designed and calculated so that they handle to the ??real-life?? physics of that particular vehicle, taking into account weight, speed, friction, wind, and more. To further enhance the realism of the driving experience, new technology blends real-time action with a photo-fixed background to immerse the player in real-life environments such as New York City, the Grand Canyon and others. Highly detailed vehicles and environment mapping create broadcast-quality graphics, from light and competitor car reflections on the player??s automobile to leaves on a tree shaking in the wind.

I guess only PS2's Emotion Engine can do such complex calculations.  Although Xbox might be prettier in terms of graphics, PS2 is defenitly smarter.

The original GT was released in '98. Five years really isn't that long when you take in consideration that the original Ridge Racer was a launch game for the PS1 back in '95. Moreover, the original GT almost wasn't released in the US because the developers beleved that American players wouldn't get into the game.
