Gran Turismo 5 recently released around the world to an overwhelmingly positive response, and while some of you were a bit disappointed with a few aspects here and there, there’s no question that Sony Computer Entertainment and Polyphony Digital’s PlayStation 3-exclusive racing simulator is a visual tour de force!
But: I seem to recall another racing simulator game that released, was it last year? In October? And exclusively on Xbox 360? Oh yes, of course! Forza Motorsport 3!
Dang, that was a great game!
If the number one claim to fame for Gran Turismo 5 (a game that was in development for five years) is its visuals, how is it then that Forza Motorsport 3 (a game with a ‘normal’ development cycle of +/- 18 months) is able to match the graphical splendour of its competitor?
Is this the case? Should my eyes be surgically replaced with cyborg peepers?
To help us out here, Gametrailers has done due diligence and compared Gran Turismo 5 and Forza Motorsport 3 over each of the game’s representations of the same car and race track: with startling results:
