GT5: Prologue to Follow Warhawk to PSN and Retail

Gran Turismo 5

The hotly anticipated Gran Turismo 5: Prologue will follow in the footsteps of the recently released Warhawk for the PS3 according to Eurogamer, receiving both a downloadable PSN release and a full Blu-ray retail release. It will feature a car count somewhere north of 40, three tracks (Eiger Nordwand, London City, and Suzuka), and 16 player online racing. It will reportedly run at 1080p and 60fps in race mode, while replays will only hit 30 fps.

The game is currently slated to drop in Japan and Europe sometime before the end of the year, but no North American release has yet been announced. However, even if it doesn’t get picked up for release, the region-free nature of the system should make importing easy … should you be so inclined.

  1. One of the juiciest bits escaped you. 🙂

    “Today, we sat in on a presentation hosted by Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi as he demonstrated some of the new features that will be present in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. The game is due for release on the PlayStation Network as a free download later this year.

  2. Hmmmm…..

    Either something has been lost in translation during the GameSpot session and GT5:P won’t be free, or the BD will be a pay version (possibly with additional content), or the BD version will be a promotional give-away due to the game’s size which might prohibit downloading for many, or SCEJ/SCEE just haven’t told Yamauchi yet that the game he thinks free will indeed be sold as Sony can’t let the megabucks just escape them.

    Sounds like another potential Polyphony/Sony snafu. Reliable communication sadly isn’t Polyphony’s forte.
