500°
246w ago - Today SCEA Producer Taku Imasaki announced that the Gran Turismo 5 PS3 Time Trial Challenge officially starts this week!

To quote: Two weeks ago we announced the Gran Turismo 5 Time Trial Challenge, and I'm here to give you a breakdown of what to expect when the demo hits PSN this coming Thursday.

This demo was specifically designed for the [Register or Login to view links] to challenge racing fans to master every straight-away, corner and bump of the track.

We want to use this demo to find out who are the best racers in both the US and Canada. We also created this demo to showcase the realism of the brand new physics engine which is constantly improving before GT5 releases.

As [Register or Login to view links] fans know, our GT games let you select between standard or professional driving physics and adjust a multitude of driving assists, but to make this a real "challenge" for all you racing fans, the GT5 demo has professional driving physics, and many of the assists are disabled. But don't worry.

Even if this demo seems challenging, you'll be able to turn on some of those extra...

246w ago - SingStar Content Manager of London Studios Nina Scherer has announced the SingStore PS3 Releases for the Week of December 14, 2009, as follows:

So, the time has come: I can finally reveal the tracks and SongPacks in the last ever SingStore update of 2009! I hate to say, I am just a little bit proud of myself for not giving anything away previously - it's not been easy

Here you go then. I hope you'll be as excited as me about some of the stuff in the update and I certainly look forward to seeing some of you with your families and friends giving some amazing holiday perfomances on My SingStar Online in the nest few weeks.

Just in time for the upcoming festivities we've got four, yes, four SongPacks for you to celebrate with.

There's no doubt about it, these guys are the first family of Motown and you can be part of the phenomoenon by downloading the brand new Jackson 5 SongPack. There is also great classical pop from Il Divo, feelgood tunes from Eddy Grant and the SingStar Essentials: Party Picks SongPack -

Last but not least, a big thanks to all you guys who have supported SingStar throughout 2009 and of course to the whole team here who have worked really hard this past year to make the SingStore bigger and better than ever.

Well, that's...
 

Gran Turismo 5 Slated for Summer 2010, PS3 Demo Next Week

700°
246w ago - During a short demo presentation of Gran Turismo 5 earlier this week, SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda re-confirmed the March 2010 GT5 PS3 release for Japan.

Without getting too specific, he then revealed that Sony was eying a vague "Summer 2010" release, which hopefully means we'll see it before leaves start falling off trees next year.

However, those seeking to get their hands on Gran Turismo 5 sooner will find a PS3 demo on PlayStation Network next week.

To quote: "Interestingly, Hinojosa-Miranda had mentioned to me that he was traveling the U.S. in the coming week to photograph cars for Polyphony's reference material. With nearly 1,000 cars in the game, it's not that big of a stretch to think that they may still be working to flesh out the game's roster.

And while he wouldn't confirm how far along they were towards completing Gran Turismo 5 development, he did say this work wasn't necessarily for the current game.

"It's not for Gran Turismo 5 or a DLC release," he said, clarifying that it's constantly building on its reference material archives. After years of development and multiple Gran Turismo titles, how else do you think it's filling those garages but with non-stop research?

On the subject of DLC for the title, he said...
