GT5 Prologue Demo and TV Details

Gran Turismo 5

More details of the upcoming Gran Turismo 5 Prologue demo have been revealed courtesy of drifto site GT Channel, which is reporting that the Japanese release of the demo is just two days away. It will contain just seven cars, but it is a (generally) good list:

  • 2008 Lexus IS-F
  • 2009 Nissan GT-R
  • 2008 Mazda Atenza
  • 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi
  • 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR
  • 2008 Daihatsu OFC-1
  • 2009 BMW 135i coupe

Also there will be only one track, but it’s a good one: Suzuka. The site is reporting that the demo will only be downloadable until November 11, which the full Prologue is set to be released for sale. And as of yet there’s still no word of an official American release.

The site also has further information on Gran Turismo TV, the in-game videos that will accompany the racing action. We already know it will include racing action and footage from shows like Best Motoring, but apparently developer Polyphony Digital have also been interviewing various personalities in the automotive world to include in the service. This includes racers as well as designers and engineers, who will all talk their craft and probably bore the tears out of you if you’re just looking to get some racing done. Still, if you’re the type to watch every director’s commentary on every movie you own, this feature should appeal to you.
