The latest issue of OPM has detailed some of the community features of Gran Turismo 5, such as “My Lounge”.
My Lounge will allow you to access all of the game’s online features, as well as a bulletin board filled with your stats and any messages you may have from friends and other players.
My Lounge will also allow you to browse through friends’ bulletin boards, check their progress on and offline, and send out mails and challenges.
Support for 32-player voice-chat is also present within My Lounge, as is the ability to host 16-player online races, be a spectator on in-progress races and gain access to the GT-TV VOD service and race replays.
Gran Turismo 5 is due for release, exclusively to PS3, this November.
