GT5 Prologue – Nordschleife Special Edition
Last weekend, the Nürburgring played host to Germany’s biggest motorsport event. Over 200.000 fans flocked to the legendary track to see 220 cars race twice around the clock in the green hell.
Part of the 24h race event were Sony and Nissan, both being sponsors of the event and looking to market their newest products. While Nissan was there to promote their GT Academy programme, Sony’s main product was GT5 Prologue, the newest version of the Gran Turismo franchise.
To appeal to the local Nürburgring crowd, the Sony people had a surprise in store. The Prologue version that could be played in the Nürburgring paddock included the Nürburgring Nordschleife known from GT4. While the legendary track is not part of the normal GT5 Prologue version, it certainly made the game more appealing to the local fans. By looking at the onboard video, you can tell that the Nordschleife has been taken from GT4 as it’s not up to Prologues standards. What does this mean for Prologue owners? Who knows…
