Ready for GT5 Prologue?

So, who's getting Gran Turismo 5 Prologue?

We could try an get an AOA race on the go.

Is it worth getting a steering wheel for this one?

Shouldn't we be able to send them Demo money? Money they can sapple, then, if they like it, we can send the the real money when they send the real game?

In the Playstation Store there is GT HD Concept 2.0 under "full games", which is free to download.

The GT5 Prologue is a full game, near enough, with online races for up to 16 players, 7 tracks, and 60 cars to choose from.

It's half the price of most new releases, and the big dog version won't be out for another year or so.

I saw it in Woolworths the other day for £20.

Was gonna pick it up, but then I remembered I'm terrible at racing games.

Yeah, I tend to just punch it and on any 'realistic' racing game I just fly off the edge of the track at corners. I rules at Burnout and Mario Kart, though

Playing this now, and there's some circuit tracks where you can go flat out all the way.

They would be in-game replays, which look better with more effects used in replays. But, must have been created on a PC with better graphics/more polygons.

Made a video of a replay, just using a cheap camera...

I will pick it up, I've always enjoyed the series so there isn't anything about it being prologue that deters me. At this point I am really waiting for GTA4.

I'm glad they priced it down a bit being only a prologue release. Trying to get around to an EBGames to pick it up when I can. GT really is one of the games you buy a PS3 for, no matter how good PGR and others get, there will only ever be one GT.

Got it for £18 compared to £25 as a download.

Whereas it isn't a full game, it's definitely worth £18.

They've teamed up with TopGear, and you'll be able to download episodes of that via GT TV in the game.
