Gorgeous cars, truly awful trees

Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, a cut-down version of the forthcoming Gran Turismo 5, is heading to Japanese PS3s this October. The "Prologue" bit just means this is a taster to tide you over until the full game arrives, but we are promised online play. We've got a video of it to show you, of course, but we're still watching it in disbelief. Since when did PS3 render trees with crossed polygons?

Watch the video below, and wait for 1:26, then look to the right of the screen. Two-poly trees aren't very pretty, are they? We remember those from 1995. Seems all the detail's going on the cars and the track, which is fair enough, as we'd rather have 60 fps smoothness than a load of detail we'll never see. But still, not the best thing to put in the trailer, eh?
