Previous Gran Turismo games have always kept the cars pristine when they crashed – the debate has always been whether that’s due to restrictions placed by manufacturers licencing their cars, or adding damage modelling into something which is already pretty graphically intensive.
But that’s changed with Gran Turismo 5 – both Kotaku and Playstation LifeStyle are carrying pictures uploaded by a Photobucket user called Asane99 which were apparently taken at a Best Buy where a demo pod is already being set up.
So take a look at Gran Turismo 5’s attempts at damage modelling and let us know what you think below…
