Sony Puts 3D Gran Turismo 5 on Display
Upcoming event highlights Sony contents and 3D technology.
Gran Turismo 5 is going on public display later this week at Sony's Dot Park event. There's going to be something slightly different from the past Tokyo Game Show showings and demos, though. This time, players will be able to sample the upcoming racer in full 3D!
Dot Park will be held from May 21 through May 25 at Roppongi Hills in central Tokyo. The event will highlight Sony's various music, movie and game contents and artists through talk and demo sessions.
Sony will of course be highlighting 3D at the event. Among the planned events, director Paul Anderson will discuss the 3D Resident Evil IV After Life in a talk session. Digital super group Genki Rockets will also host a 3D concert.
The Gran Turismo 5 3D demo will be playable in a special cafe inside Roppongi Hills throughout the course of the Dot Park event. Visitors will also get to sample other Sony 3D technology as well, including 3D Bravia televisions.
Outside of Gran Turismo, Sony will highlight PlayStation 3 technology in a talk session hosted by senior vice president Yutaka Teiji.
While not strictly related to games,, Rez and Space Channel 5 creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi will also appear at the event. He'll host a talk session discussing the creation of 3D video.
