Dit najaar komen er heel wat racegames uit. Zo zal je binnenkort met Need for Speed: Shift, Dirt 2 en de langverwachte Gran Turismo 5 aan de slag kunnen. Vandaag zijn er nieuwe details van GT5 opgedoken. Volgens verschillende bronnen zou Gran Turismo 5 op 11 december uitkomen. Dit zou een logische release zijn aangezien de game dan nog onder veel kerstbomen terecht kan komen. In Keulen vindt nu de GamesCom 2009 plaats. Daar kan je veel nieuwe games spelen waaronder Gran Turismo 5. Iemand is zo vriendelijk geweest om beelden hiervan op te nemen. De details en de beelden kan je hieronder bekijken.
