GT5 Prologue – Pre-Release Frenzy
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue will hit the European shelves in less than 48 hours and it looks like as it will be the first major success for Sony and the Playstation 3. Even though Prologue offers only a taste of what the full Gran Turismo 5 will bring, the Gran Turismo community is eager to get the new game.
Play.com, one of the UK’s biggest games online-store, has completely sold out on GT5 Prologue copies. Gamers don’t have to be afraid to be left out though as GT5 Prologue will also be available as PSN download.
Meanwhile, Sony has given out some information on when we can expect the “true” Gran Turismo 5 to hit the shelves. The following message appeared the Sony PlayStation blog, keep in mind that the statement probably refers to the Japanese release of the game. It will take additional months for the game to appear in Europe and the US.
Also, to further clarify, GT5 is still about a year away. You should just decide now to buy it, enjoy it, go online and race against anyone and everyone, rank number one worldwide, get the girl (or guy) and become the most popular kid in town.
Not that it would be needed, but here is additional promo material to fuel the GT5 Prologue hype. The video has an interview with GT creator Kazunori Yamauchi and shows the Ferrari F2007 racing on the Daytona International Speedway.
