- Reports that Japanese games magazine Famitsu has given Gran Turismo 5: Prologue a near-perfect score have proven to be false.
News broke yesterday that Weekly Famitsu had given GT5: Prologue - which is due to be released in its native Japan tomorrow - a highly impressive score of 39/40.
However, it now seems these claims were actually a load of porky pies, with Famitsu itself having not reviewed the game at all.
The source of the score appears to be an individual who wished to fool users on the popular NeoGAF forums by making up a load of review scores and news and trying to claim that it was the contents of this week's issue of Famitsu.
As is the way with such things, however, the rest of the internet got hold of the story and ran with it before checking whether it was accurate or not. And as it transpired, it wasn't.
Of course, this doesn't mean that Polyphony's racer isn't going to be amazing - just that we'll all have to wait a little longer to find out how good it really is.
In the meantime, one of NeoGAF's forum users has posted a separate thread with the actual contents of this week's Famitsu, which you can check out here.
