Gran Turismo 5 car list to be given graphical update

Standard vehicles to get premium look upgrade

New Gran Turismo 5 update inbound

Leading PS3 racing simulator Gran Turismo 5 is preparing for a new update as standard model cars are set to be given a premium overhaul, Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed.

In an interview with Famitsu, car enthusiast and Gran Turismo creational mastermind Yamauchi revealed that the standard, lower detailed vehicles included in the game are to be given a graphical overhaul, bringing them up to spec with the visually superior premium model cars.

Whilst it is yet unknown exactly when this update will land and whether it will be implemented on all standard model cars, it is one that will please a number of the games critics that have already seen their issues with the title’s damage models appeased.

Despite having dropped to fifth in the UK All Format gaming charts this week, it was revealed on Monday that the long overdue release of Gran Turismo 5 has recorded more than5.5 million sales in its opening two weeks, an impressive figure yet one massively eclipsed by Call of Duty: Black Ops which shifted 5.6 million copies in its opening 24 hours.
