a game that's not really a game. But either way, if it's priced and on Blu ray it must be a pretty extensive demo of GT5. I'm certainly interested. GT5 is one of the premier Sony franchises.

GT5 Prologue is a full game extracted from GT5 game (released in 2008).

GT5 Prologue will have PSN downloadable AND B-ray versions.

GT5 Prologue will be released in December for Europe and Japan while US only get it in March 2008.

I thought GT5 Prologue comes out this year before or in December...There must be some mistake.

Maybe Amazon means GT5 (The actual whole game) will be released in June of next year.
