Video:GT5 Versus Nordschleife
So Gran Turismo 5 is the Daddy of driving sims, the big enchilada, the puppy’s parts. No argument there (unless you’re an Xbox owner). But if you needed proof that GT5 is capable of reproducing amazing levels of realism then take a look at the following video from Sony.
Taking real-life footage from a lap of the Nurburging Nordschleiefe and GP circuit, the video merges footage from a virtual lap of the circuit. It really is amazing how close GT5 comes to recreating the twists and turns of the Green Hell, with plenty of trackside detail that helps to capture the feeling of speed as you hurtle down that narrow piece of asphalt.
