GT5 Prologue Launches in Europe, Sells Out

PSXExtreme writes: While we await for the final release of the greatest thing since sliced bread, we'll gladly settle for its prologue counterpart. We're so glad to settle, in fact, that Gran Turismo 5: Prologue's release in Europe has catapulted the game to the top spot on Amazon's UK site. It holds pole position (that's #1 in auto race talk, folks) in the PC and Videogames category on the online retailer. Furthermore,, one of the largest game stores in the UK, is reporting a sell-out for initial shipments.

yeah, looks like sony will be climbing the ladder of software sales form here on.

Homicide3765d ago

Yep, nice to hear. Sony must be pleased, especially after that 1 million pre-orders.

but I am a little concerned about the damage / no penalty aspect on the time attack - online portion of the prologue. I mean will records be sacred or just bullshyt like they were with Gran Turismo HD?

I LOVE Gran Turismo, but until they can ensure that players won't be wall riding and bumping players off of the track, it will probably keep me offline and racing and recording times in the good 'ol single player races like I have for years.

sonarus3765d ago

agree. it could ruin the online. however, there are apparently penalties that occur as a result. sort of like formula 1 penalties

achira3765d ago

online is awesome. imho gt5p ist the game with the best online gaming. its fu*** addicting and awesome.

Bathyj3765d ago

I noticed already in some of the B class races ther are ramming and short cut penalties. No doubt time trails on line will have this too.

Fricken awesome by the wait. Definitely worth every cent and no way would I wait another year to play this when everyone has it now. Suck it up and buy it.

I'm even considering getting a G25 steering wheel.

Maddens Raiders3761d ago

didn't know that they were instilling penalties for driving infractions/wall riding etc....

This makes me a little more confident about the online portion and the validity of times/scores. There was never any doubt about the purchase though. 8D
