    Me too man. I used to resort to playing GT2 using a PSX emulator on my PC. That idea went out the window with GT3 and GT4. It'd be great to have GT5 on the PC.

    I'm sorry, what exactly is this supposed to mean?

    Have you ever heard of GPL? GTR? GTR2? These games are far more realistic regarding both physics and AI than any Gran Turismo game has ever been, and are far more in-depth than they will ever be.

    I appreciate GT as an arcadey, fun, addictive game (just one more race! gotta get the new car!), but to say that it has a higher 'depth and quality' than PC racing simulators and claiming that it will somehow give PC racing games a new level is completely, utterly ridiculous.

    The keyboard comment is also off the board seeing as anyone mildly interested in racing games get a wheel - and the wheels for the PC are of a much higher quality and have actual driver support.

    If you want a racing sim that is totally realistic then play this : - http://www.lfs.net/

    get yourself a decent force feedback wheel and pedal set... you can't play a proper driving sim with a keyboard or a controller

    would be nice to play a racing sim with actual cars rather than copy cars

    Very very true. GT is fun and looks great on the PS3 -- but it pales in comparison to the level of realism that GTR, GTR2 on the PC offers. Plus, GT *still* has no damage modelling which, in this day and age of realism, is a serious whoopsie, IMO.

    it is improbable that this will happen, especially when we consider the amount of piracy in China..... and that this is one of the most exclusive IP PS3 has....

    I highly doubt Sony would let this one get away. They've lost a fair few exclusives already, and to let this go on PC would be commercial suicide. GT is a system seller, no doubt about it. I'll bet this hint is a sign that PD need more money to keep up with the rising development costs.

    And then there's also the pirates :rolleyes:

    It seems every time a game tempts me enough to buy a console, it's announced for PC, and the £200+ goes back into my wallet. First Guitar Hero 3, then Mass Effect, then Assassin's Creed, and now GT5! Rumours of the decline of PC gaming are obviously highly exagerated!

    <additional>

    GT MMO perhaps? The chinese would love that!

    ...which would you recommend? They haven't been tested in a while !HINT!
    Frankly, I find it difficult to find them for the PC.

    If I remember correctly, the ones with the best Force-Feedback and buid quality were:
    - Logitech-Momo (which has metal gears...but is horribly expensive due to the leather Momo wheel)
    - Microsft Sidewinder FF (Which has been discontinued)

    and then a big drop in quality.

    So, any ideas?

    Gran Turismo would be nice, but not a big deal, already better sims on PC. LOL at the guy saying Gran Truismo has more depth and realism then any other PC title, ignorant much? Gran Tursimo is OK, but far from realistic or in depth, an arcade racer that has always been falsely advertised as a true sim.
