Monaco F1 Circuit in Gran Turismo 5, Yamauchi Interview

gtplanet writes: "Car Magazine has just posted a new interview with Kazunori Yamauchi, as part of their big feature on the Red Bull X1 Prototype. It’s a good read (keep in mind it was conducted before the delay), but the most interesting revelation actually comes from a small new screenshot included in the article, taken from inside the X1’s cockpit at the Monaco F1 circuit.

Of course, the track is not new to the series – it first appeared in GT3 as “Cote d’Azur” (renamed, presumably, for licensing reasons), and it’s good to know it’s back for GT5. The screenshot is taken from the turn-out of the Grand Hotel Hairpin, one of the tightest, slowest, and most famous corners in Formula 1 (here’s a real-world photo of the hotel in the background, along with a screenshot from the same location in GT PSP). The article also included another new shot of the X1 passing the Colosseum at Rome:"

Pity you won't be playing earlier like everyone else.

So what happened to, "Not buying. Getting Smackdown or some other game instead."

Consistency, the key to low level trolling, just a tip.

Pennywise2829d ago

Consistency comes with high level trolling. This guy hasn't hit level 5 yet.

:) best track on the game.

KingZFlipper2829d ago

It's so annoying. Especially on Expert... One little mistake and your in the wall. Would love to see how they get this to work on GT5

saint_john_paul_ii2829d ago (Edited 2829d ago )

thats why its one of the most famous and iconic F1 tracks of like all time.

winning the Monaco Gran Prix there is the equivalent, if not bigger than winning the Daytona 500.

Half the problem in f12010 is the terrible frame rate drops in races around there, I'm sure Kaz will do the track justice though :)
