"My Home" feature to bridge multiple devices
Step aside, Facebook. Get out of the way, Twitter. You've all got nothing on My Home, a new social online feature that will be incorporated into Gran Turismo 5.
There will be full integration between Gran Turismo 5 and gran-turismo.com as part of My Home, which has a complete in-game social structure.
Within this particular part of the game, players will be able to create an online profile and keep tabs on all their friends. Players can read and post on message boards and even check their e-mail. Additionally, there's a virtual lounge where players can set up races and make friends.
Players can trade in-game photos with their friends, as well as custom tracks and cars. Oh, and get this - you'll even be able to race against other users from a computer. For those times when you're not right on a PS3.
It's all part of a bigger initiative called Gran Turismo Anywhere. That's a bid to take the Gran Turismo experience away from the confines of a video game system and make it literally something that anyone can tap into in some way or another.
The Web-based version of My Home will launch on November 22nd, 20 days after the Gran Turismo 5 release date.
