i think that's the way japanese developers are. they never disclose any information abt their games until the last moment . this way the consumers are always guessing .anyways i agree to the statement that this simulator can on its own sell a console .

c0ckpit view confirmed
In a special episode of Jeuxvideo.TV, a c0ckpit view has been confirmed for GT5. Most of the footage is of Gran Turismo 4, and then GTHD towards the end. However, half-way through the show you will see them modelling a c0ckpit view for a mercedes 300 SL. Kazunori of Polyphony Digital also confirms that there will be c0ckpit views in the game.

^^ six months for a car - thats total BS even if it is coming straight from the developer...its just to create hype....that kind of time would increase development time like crazy and costs would skyrocket

French Vidéo Game Magazine " JOYPAD" goes to Japan and meets Kaz San (Kazunori Yamauchi) at Polyphony Digital and gives us 3 pages of interview and some more scoop about GT5:
In a Nutshell :
- All cars and tracks of GT4 will be in GT5 - More cars and tracks should be Downloadable - 4 Driving Views - Damages for the Race Cars - All Ferraris + F1 - New City Tracks - Online Drivers : 12 to 20 - Changing Weather during race
"for Porsche and Lamborghini, no confirmation" "an employer take the pad : black screen , lot of lines in japan , nothing to understand except "indianapolis"" "I can comfirm a game will be out between GT4 et GT5" K.Y
the article ending with 2 more interesting paragraphs concerning the problem with F1 right and another about damages.
it's only a translation of the link..
My Take on this - :
All cars and tracks of GT4 will be in GT5: Thats like more than 700 Cars right there, THANK GOD for PS3 having Blu-Ray in that case, I was sort of skeptical about Blu-Ray being in PS3, NOT anymore..
More cars and tracks should be Downloadable Thats to be expected from any next gen game now.. But SWEET! Thanks for the confirmation.
4 Driving Views Umm (Fingers Crossed) - BumperCam, C0ckpit View, Chase Cam and Wide-Angle ChaseCam or a Roof Cam (i dont like that, though, if there's c0ckpit view confirmed)
Damages for the Race Cars I'll probably want to read an explanation to THAT.. What's that supposed to mean? Only Race Cars will have Damage?? That doesnt make much sense to me. Please KY, explain this.. Hopefully in the Magazine this is explained..
All Ferraris + F1 Holly KRAP.. If that also means, ALL F1 cars. Can you imagine driving the Insanely Powerful Death Machines from the 60s, 70s and the 80s? I mean the F1 cars from that Era were THE SCHIT!! The Sound and the Sheer detailing from PD on the physics and Modelling.. This should be OrrrGazMick!
New City Tracks SuWEEEEETT!! What would you like to see here? Shanghai? Mumbai? actually any City track is brilliant to drive in, so this sounds COOL!!
Online Drivers : 12 to 20 Again, some explanation on this. Does this mean they've confirmed 12 at the moment but are trying for 20MAX? or does this mean u can only start a race online if there are 12 to 20 people in that room? That doesnt make sense so am gonna stick to 12 MAX at the moment, which is quite INSANE to be honest, 20 would be Mayhem.. (in a great way, i mean )
Changing Weather during race This has GOT to be the best news so far.. Can you imagine the possibillties this opens up for a Racing Sim. I remember in GTR2 this was insanely well executed and by what I know so far of PD, this is going to be the most crucial feature in the game.. I hope this doesnt mean every race will have rain, lol.. That'd suck..
"for Porsche and Lamborghini, no confirmation" hmmm, atleast we'll have RUFs as usual, but I'll miss the sound of LP640 if this is true!
"an employer take the pad : black screen , lot of lines in japan , nothing to understand except "indianapolis"" Whoa, Indianapolis??? Awesome that is... It's be insane to drive those 500 laps around Indianapolis Speedway and even the F1 track rocks!!
"I can comfirm a game will be out between GT4 et GT5" K.Y Any guesses? GT:Mobile? GT-HD upgrade? As in Version 2? Tourist Trophy 2?? This sounds interesting too.. Although I am not in for TT2, that was a great game, but am not too fond of that.. Although it could be GT5 Prologue, end of this year.. But I'll definetely take GT:Mobile over that, any day..
I think this is Huge.. Talk about taking the thunder away from Forza 2.. Although I keep my word intact. Forza 2 would be great enough to keep me busy till GT5 comes and GT5 will then keep me busy for Life!
---------- But!!!! Unfortunately I have followed GT Series quite closely and from what I can tell, It will be awesome to know even if one of the features listed above (exactly as mentioned) makes it into the final game.. lol.. so much for the excitement!
+pfderskate,i think the game between 4 nad 5 is going to be gt-mobile,or they'll add features to gt-hd. i heard that GT-HD was a test for gt5 and over time theyll include newwer features to get user feedback before incorporating it into the main game.
We're not tools of the government, or anyone else. Fighting was the only thing... the only thing I was good at. But... at least I always fought for what I believed in.
