Project Gotham 3 to be very shiny and customisable

Many cars, polys, custom tracks.

Speaking at the Xbox Summit in Japan on Friday, Bizarre Creations' Nick Davies showed off some more of Project Gotham Racing 3 and spoke of just how much prettier and more involved the game's likely to be.

There'll be 80 different cars and tracks that you can both create and customise, Davies said.

We've already witnessed countless demonstrations of high detail texturing and snazzy car visuals, and IGN reports that last week Davies put some numbers to the pictures, telling the assembled Japanese hacks that cars will be comprised of 40,000 exterior polygons and 40,000 interior polygons. That's compared to 10,000 total in the already-very-pretty Project Gotham Racing 2 on Xbox.

Davies also said that the Brooklyn section of PGR3 had the same number of polygons you'd see in the entirety of PGR2's New York sections, and that the thousands of spectators surrounding the racetrack would be fully polygonal. And to think we rather liked GT4's cardboard cut-outs with their flashbulbs!

Expect more on PGR3 as the PR machine revs harder in the coming months.
