Gran Turismo TV Revealed!

50°
362w ago - By now you've already read our news on GT 5 Prologue Release Date and Free Demo. Just as we expected, more and more information the new Gran Turismo for PS3 is slowly leaving Sony HQ. We've learned even more about the upcoming downloadable demo, but more importantly, what will make it into the final game.

Sony's production team has been making the rounds at different automakers, that's nothing too earth-shaking, but the big news is that Gran Turismo 5 will finally inject some personality into the series. We confirmed that the team is hitting carmakers and interviewing key individuals at Ford, Audi, Nissan and other firms for on-camera footage. These interviews will be used in Gran Turismo 5 as bonus footage about the world of cars. Think of it like Special Features or Deleted Scenes you'd find in a HD-DVD or Blu-Ray disc. This is without-a-doubt, what Sony has been touting as Gran Turismo TV.

How do we know this? We caught 2007 Formula D Champion, Tanner Foust, being interviewed on-camera by a production crew with Gran Turismo 5, in HD, running in attract mode. It's a bit strange seeing the GT camp breaking out of its shell and diving into a more tuner-ish world, but we're positive that this isn't the last drifter Sony plans on interviewing. From the sounds of it, Sony is busy breaking out of the stale mold...
 

Gran Turismo 5 Prologue demo, free download Oct. 24th

100°
362w ago - Big news from the world of Gran Turismo. With the Tokyo Motor Show only a week away, Sony is already prepping for a huge unveiling on October 24th. There are rumors around what Sony could possibly be revealing, but for now the more important news at hand is the fact that GT5 Prologue will be a downloadable demo as of October 20th. That's right, a free download. That explains why Gran Turismo HD was removed from the PlayStation store on September 30th.

Chances are that this is the same demo shown at Tokyo Game Show (TGS). Most of you who didn't attent TGS will be able to see calendar and other functions in the new Prologue. If that's the case and the Prologue demo is the same one shown at the video game show last month, this upcoming download should feature Alfa Romeos, Nissans, Ferarris and other vehicles, a total of 16, as well as three tracks, Suzuka, Fuji and Daytona.

The October 24th downloadable demo of Prologue should hold fans over long enough until the December 13th release of Gran Turismo Prologue. Pricing will be set at 4,980 Yen for the Blu-Ray disc and 4,500 as a straight download. If it's only four bucks, give us the disc; we don't want a download that costs as much as a full game.
 

Gran Turismo HD to be Removed in Japan

50°
365w ago - Gran Turismo HD was initially intended as a limited time Christmas present of sorts for early PlayStation 3 adopters, but some nine months later, the free download is still available via the PlayStation Store. However, with Gran Turismo 5: Prologue on the horizon, Gran Turismo HD's days appear to be numbered -- at least in Japan.

GameLife reports that Sony will remove the title from the PlayStation Store in Japan this Sunday, September 30th. No word yet on whether the North American version of Gran Turismo HD will suffer the same fate, but we recommend downloading it immediately (wherever you are) if you haven't already. Along with the removal, the Japanese Gran Turismo website will no longer track rankings for the title, though the in-game leaderboards will continue to function.
