Gran Turismo 5 Dynamic Weather Revealed in TGS Media Blast

BOOM widget 140176 Polyphony Digital has unveiled a whole host of new Gran Turismo 5 information at the Tokyo Game Show, showing everything from a dynamic weather system and new versions of old GT tracks to a drivable amphibious car and Volkswagen Samba Bus.

"Factors like temperature, pressure and humidity are all calculated to help simulate weather conditions that change dynamically," Polyphony explains, which will naturally affect car performance.

Veteran Gran Turismo series tracks Trial Mountain Circuit and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will return "rebuilt from scratch to drastically improve their quality," says PD.

Gran Turismo 5 is due out exclusively for PlayStation 3 on November 5. No, really.
