TGS07: GT5 Prologue to have five tracks

There was a bit of controversy over the price of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, as revealed at Tokyo Game Show. Since then, Sony has revealed a few more details on the game, the most telling of which is the game's limited track selection: five in total. While this is four more than the free Gran Turismo HD, it does still feel quite scarce compared to the usually line-up of tracks typical to a GT game. Hopefully, other features included in the game will make the experience seem meatier:
  • 16 player online multiplayer - A first for the series.
  • 30 cars to choose from - Including vehicles from Ferrari, Lotus, Nissan and Mitsubishi.
  • Gran Turismo TV - Watch hot racing-relevant videos straight from the game.
  • Photo Mode - The classic feature returns, letting you take in-game pictures and save them to your HDD.
American pricing and a release date have yet to be revealed. Stay tuned for continuing developments on Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

2. i say $20-$30 for a demo but the game looks sweet. this is gonna be a hard choice to make when it comes out.

3. I would pay $29 for this game. I still haven't finished GT4 yet, so I'm a patient guy.

4. I wish they kept with the original plan and made this free. I think I'll just wait for the full retail version, thanks.

5. they never said that it was going to be free, there was a rumor that it would be. that's why you have to take rumors with a grain of salt...

6. Not a penny over 30 bucks....I'm a big GT fan, but you have to draw the line somewhere and Prologue isn't even giving us 1/2 the content of the full game.

7. 19 dollars, not a cent more.

only 5 tracks? are you kidding me? this really should be free or included in a PS3 bundle and offer it free.

Posted at 11:45PM on Sep 24th 2007 by kingofwale

8. I say 20

Posted at 11:58PM on Sep 24th 2007 by sicklesdawg

9. It's a demo. It should be free. If they want to make money, release the full game.

Posted at 12:25AM on Sep 25th 2007 by Tim

10. I'd pay $30 for it.

I know no one else cares here (probably), but HD version of TOP GEAR and FIFTH GEAR on my PS3!? I was DREAMING OF THAT since the beginning! Can't get darn BBC channels on this side of the planet cept for torrenting, so maybe I can finally watch this damn series in a valid way =P.

I am SO looking to it. GT TV here we come!

Posted at 12:50AM on Sep 25th 2007 by Dahk

11. One dollar! :D

Posted at 12:51AM on Sep 25th 2007 by MV

12. Will -

It would have been smart on Sony's behalf to make this a free download. A lot of people are going to view this as paying for a demo, and Sony is already dealing with a pricing stigma.

Posted at 12:55AM on Sep 25th 2007 by Ithilis

13. In case anyone was wondering.

Even if you're not a car fanatic, Top Gear is one of the most awesome shows in the world just for its SHEER humour and the insane things they do.

Just to give you a couple samples of stuff they did this past year:

1) Shot a Reliant Robin (Mr. Bean's car) into the air as a 'space shuttle' with rocket boosters - turned into the single biggest rocket launch in UK history.

2) Two blathering bumblehead brits try to hit the north pole in a TOYOTA pick-up truck, and race against another brit in a dogsled with a pack of huskies. Most intense show ever.

3) The brits fly over to get a taste of America =P Maybe american's shouldn't watch this one ahah but its hell funny.

4) Performed SEVERAL Winter Olympic series using cars. Downhill ski-ing on a Mini Cooper with ROCKETS. Speed Skating with Jaguars, biathalons with SUVs

5) Tested an SUV and its agileness against a TANK in various terrains.

New season starts October 7th =).

14. Ithilis, "According to Gamespot".

NO ONE should've viewed this as a free download.
GT HD was good enough of a free download.

Posted at 12:58AM on Sep 25th 2007 by Dahk

15. i'll pay _anything_ - it's gran turismo FFS....

well, wouldn't like to spend over $100 AUD, but still, if you like cars, or racing games, then pay whatever you can to get Gran Turismo, anyone else just doesn't get it

Posted at 1:08AM on Sep 25th 2007 by stirlo

16. As been said before, Prologue wasn't free last time, I don't see why it has to be free now. That said, I didn't buy prologue last time, and I won't buy it this time. I can wait.

Posted at 1:20AM on Sep 25th 2007 by Jammer

17. i say 2 tracks and 5 cars!

Posted at 3:12AM on Sep 25th 2007 by ryano

18. not gonna pay a fuckn dime for this. i'm waiting for the real thing.

Posted at 3:51AM on Sep 25th 2007 by hack

19. I bought the GT4 Prologue, but it was cheaper and featured more than this Prologue does. It feels a bit over the top.

Posted at 4:17AM on Sep 25th 2007 by Broken Haiku

20. I'll buy it no matter what the price. I don't care how many ignorant people call it a demo, I will be playing prologue for hours so why should it be worth less than fully priced games that can be completed in less than 10 hours.
