November 09, 2004 - Three years in the making, and Gran Turismo 4 is finally done. Publisher Sony Computer Entertainment and developer Polyphony Digital held a party in Tokyo today (forgetting to invite us!) to celebrate the completion of the game, the fact that it has gone gold, and ( to make some strange announcements).

At the party, Polyphony president Kazunori Yamauchi gave out final stats for the game, including some staggering numbers. Some of these were announced before, but some of them weren't, so listen up! First, GT4 really is huge. The game makes use of a dual layered DVD, totaling, Yamauchi revealed, over nine gigabytes of data.

Where does all that data go? That's where the cars come into the picture. Licenses from 80 car makers throughout the world (but lacking car makers from India, we'll point out) are featured in GT4. Taking into account all cars, including concept cars, historical cars, race cars and cars from year 2005 and beyond, the game has over 700 total (we're sure Yamauchi knows the exact number, but he's just being shy). This includes, Yamauchi revealed today, the BMW 3 Series, which makes its debut in the game prior to its 2005 real-life release.

Finally, some course news. The fifty courses from the game include a previously unrevealed one: the new Fuji Speedway '05 course, which is set to open (in real life) in April of 2005. There are still a number of courses that haven't been officially revealed, so it looks like we'll have to wait until we get the final version of the game to see what's in there.

All this should add up to the biggest driving experience ever. We'll have lots more leading up to the game's 12/3 Japanese release.

thats ok, i dont care about stats like that. It only makes me think about whats wrong with the population when GT is more popular than halo. I have honestly played all of them and hate them.... alot. Racing is not my thing.

Im happy for all you fans though, i know how i felt when h2 went gold.

That's like me bashing a game because I'm not a fan of it's genre. I have Halo 2, and it is simply amazing, no doubt the best in it's genre, as is GT in racing.

I'd rather the population likes racing better than shooting aliens.

I would get GT4 if I had a PS2, I'll rent or buy NFSU2.

No racing game ever beats GT. It pisses me off how people say NFSU owns GT.


Hmm I just noticed that they announced this the day halo 2 came out...

Well racing promotes violence too.....i mean all that bashing, it can get ugly. And really lets not argue, NFSU is the 2nd best arcade stlye racer (yea burnout 3 kicks its butt b/c of the CRASHES) and GT4 is the benchmark for simulation. So stop dising on the good games fools, they all differnet so shut up and go play urs and i'll play mine.

ur kidding, right? the only game that has even close to the anticipation and hype of halo 2 is halflife 2. its the only upcoming game that could potentially take H2 in game of the year. well, i guess metroid, and WOW has a chance, and the new metal gear has a small chance, but i would put money on either H2 or HL2 for game of the year

nm, doesnt even come out this year. if a racing game ever gets game of the year ill **** a brick. its not gonna beat halo 2 in sales, or atleast first day sales, nothing will in the near future
