GT 5 Update Adds Damage Options
Car damage has been a big issue in Gran Turismo 5, and the game's 1.03 update now adds it for online races.
When you're setting up an online race, you can choose from no damage, light damage (where mechanical damage will be repaired after a short time), and heavy damage (pit stops will be in order for major work, and the mechanical damage will show up on your HUD).
While these options are welcome, for the moment they are restricted to the game's online portion. The offline, career-focused My GT section of the game has damage, but it unlocks as you progress and there isn't a scaleable menu option.
