First official Gran Turismo 5 screenshots released

Polyphony Digital releases the first round of official screenshots of the upcoming Gran Turismo 5 for PS3.

You'd think that after years of waiting, they'd have something better to show than a bunch of menu screens.

Polyphony Digital usually plays its cards pretty close to the vest when it comes to releasing details about its Gran Turismo series. So, I was pretty stoked when I got a news release titled "First Official Gran Turismo 5 screenshots." I waited with baited breath as the images downloaded. Hurriedly, I flung open the attachments only to be greeted with a handful of images of the GT5's fancy menu system. Really? Talk about disappointing.

Ironically, we've already had more than a few good looks at GT5 in action, despite Polyphony Digital's weak attempts at teasers. We already know that the PS3-exclusive will feature 1,000 vehicles, damage modeling and rollover crashes, and online racing with voice chat. Heck, we even knew about the game's capability to flood YouTube with your weak sauce replays.

In fact, about the only thing we don't know is when we can expect to be able to play the game. Although to be fair, we're not so sure that anyone at Polyphony Digital knows either.

So, come on Poly-Dig. We've already seen the goods. Stop being such a tease and give us the full monty.
