Gran Turismo 5 Prologue demo, free download Oct. 24th

For those of you who worship at the alter of Playstation, life is about to get more bearable. Its name is Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, and it will be available to download for free on October 24th. The move is an effort to keep thumbs from atrophying after the long hiatus between GT4 and the new prologue installment, due out in stores December 13th (at least in Japan).

The launch is coinciding with the Tokyo Motor Show, where a number of vehicles that have parts in the game will be revealed in the really-real-world the day before. Among the models already confirmed: the new Nissan GT-R and Mitsubishi Evolution X, plus 16 other manufacturers, including Ferrari and Alfa Romeo. Three new tracks are also set to make their debut in GT5, including Fuji, Daytona and Suzuka. (Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, PS3)

Yeah it's going to be free, I think that's really the best move for sony right now, especially if they are trying to sell these new lower price PS3's.

This should get some people to place the system in there shopping cart or add this to there Christmas list for Nov. (I just wish they could have released the rumble controllers at the same time in the usa as in japan. (Nov.) that would have been sweet.)

I hate to disappoint but
It's a demo of Prologue, not the entire game. If you read the rest of the article it gives pricing for the "full" Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

Sony really made this confusing.
socomnick  +   2970d ago
Cloud all this time you praise the mighty ps3 as being a graphical powerhouse and a amazing game machine yet you don't even bloody own the system. Thats the problem with this site all the ps3 fangirls don't even own ps3s so they have no right to even talk about it. Own the console first then defend , praise it etc.
Huddymonster  +   2970d ago
Dumb is the theme...
for people who are tricked into thinking that just because it is the prologue to a game that it cant have content that is worth 50 dollars. If you look at Motorstorm it sold very well and it has about the same amount of content as GT5 pro. PLUS it is Gran Turismo its always going to sell because no racing game on the planet and whoever thinks otherwise is either a fanoby or just had a labotomy.

WHAT you need to know is.....
that this is simply a demo of GT Prologue.

GT Prologue is aimed to be a 'full game'. Like a game of GT 5, kinda like how GT 4 Prologue was.

But it will have far fewer tracks, far fewer cars, far fewer features, no damage modeling, no weather system etc. It's mainly aimed for the driving fans and those who really really want GT 5 to be here now, so it's like lasting them until GT 5 comes out. The only added bonus of buying GT 5 Prologue, apart from the fun value and entertainment value, is so that you can start GT 5 off with a mad ass car.

But for the me, lol I'll just be waiting for GT 5.


----------------------------- ------------------------------- ----------

Free GT Prologue DEMO Oct 24th to wet fans tastes until the actual GT 5 Prologue comes out in December 13 for a price. Then GT 5 will every car, track, feature, damage modeling, weather system etc. will come out in 2008.

Hope that helps clear things up!

I think a lot of u guys are misunderstanding. This is GT5 Prologue DEMO. It's NOT the FULL VERSION of GT5 Prologue. Which a lot of people said would be free.

So don't jump around saying "I told you so" because you bummed a lot of people out. Including me at some point but I now know better than to listen to fools. Now I'm just happy I can get a free taste.
sjappie  +   2970d ago
It would be pretty pathetic if you had to pay for a demo.
Nice to see that you're so happy you don't have to pay for the demo.
RunamukK  +   2970d ago
you know on the comments section of the site you linked to someone says that this is actually just a free demo for prologue. I really hope that aint true!!
xplosneer  +   2970d ago
It's $40! NOT!

A Demo For the Demo for the Full Game. Ha. Still, time to get my GT on.

Its not free. Just the Demo of Prolouge is
“GT5 Prologue” Free Downloadable Demo and Target Release Date AnnouncedSep 20, 2007
On September 20, 2007, at the “Tokyo Game Show 2007” at Makuhari Messe, we announced a free downloadable demo and a change in the target release date for "Gran Turismo 5 Prologue".

The demo for “Gran Turismo 5 Prologue” will be made available for download on October 20, 2007. The retail version (Blu-ray Disc®/download) will hit stores on December 13, 2007.

Coinciding with the start of the 40th Tokyo Motor Show 2007, we will be unveiling new car models as well in the free downloadable demo. Be sure not to miss both these exciting, simultaneous events!

We have also released new videos and screenshots on the “Gran Turismo 5 Prologue” website in conjunction with this announcement. Be sure not to miss them!

It's a demo. Don't be absurd. Prologue will be priced just like previous prologues.
Maddens Raiders  +   2970d ago
Huh? -
-- "Prologue will be priced just like previous prologues..." --

What were the previous prices?
Ri0tSquad  +   2970d ago
GT4 prologue
goes for about 20 bucks.
Maddens Raiders  +   2970d ago
Hmmm -
All this time I thought GT4 Prologue was Japan only and I never bought it. I've got every GT ever made, but not GT4 prologue and GTHD for the PS3 was free so I was a bit confused with the "just like previous prologue" statment -- how many Prologues are there?

Last time I checked Kaz stated that GT5 Prologue wouldn't be free so I don't see what the big hulabaloo is all about. =]

It's only the demo, the full version is NOT free
Crazyglues  +   2970d ago
who cares how can you be mad at getting a free demo, warhawk didn't have a free demo, I think it's a good move regardless.

that way if you want the full game get it, if not you can still play the demo which will have like 16 cars and 3 tracks. (for me that's all I really need because I just want to check it out already)
The_Firestarter  +   2970d ago
Well, DUUUH! It's a demo, so it SHOULD be free.
riqued  +   2970d ago
Some people were thinking this was the full game and free...
The_Firestarter  +   2970d ago
I didn't know people actually thought it was the FULL game.
Mikey_Gee  +   2969d ago
Please tell me you don't have to pay for fk'n demos !!!

If that is the case, I know what I WILL be scratching off my want list for Christmas.

When you said "warhawk didn't have a free demo" ... does that mean NO DEMO came out, or does that mean you had to PAY for a Fk'n demo??

I have NEVER payed for a Demo and I have downloaded TONS of them and enjoyed most of them. This is what lets me know if I should buy or not buy a game.
The_Firestarter  +   2969d ago
I'm sure Crazyglues was saying that Warhawk had a demo in which you had to pay to play it.
Mikey_Gee  +   2969d ago
Why in the hell would anyone pay to play a fricken demo .. you would have to be nuts
HeavyweightInTheGame  +   2970d ago
Many people posting to this sound like demos were never free.

Maddens Raiders  +   2970d ago
I'd gladly pay �100 for a Kazunori game demo -
than play that half-ass, blurry Forza for free.
toughNAME  +   2970d ago

Nameless  +   2970d ago
The Sony Droids are excited about a "Console Demo" being free when it has always been that way ? Okay then
DJ  +   2970d ago
GT:5 prologue has
a full single-player mode, offline multiplayer mode, and a fleshed out online mode for both racing (12 players at once) and viewing of GT TV. 40 Cars and 12 tracks seems like a pretty good deal as well for $40.
Makroyale  +   2970d ago
Yeah we are
Especially when the demo offers better gameplay then full versions of PGR4 and Forza.
Skizelli  +   2970d ago
Maybe you should play the game first before jumping to conclusions, a la Lair.

EDIT: And to whoever disagreed, you're a moron. Only a fool makes claims about a game that's not even out yet, fanboy or not.
#17.3 (Edited 2970d ago ) | Agree(5) | Disagree(4) | Report | Reply
Makroyale  +   2970d ago
OK, you're right I haven't played it yet.

But I have played Forza and PGR4 and I KNOW it's not as bad as those two!

I might be assuming a bit, but I know I'm right.
Skizelli  +   2969d ago
Actually, you're not right. You're still speculating. I'm a huge racing fan and I love both Forza and the GT series, but GT has become stale. Why people fight over which is better is stupid. If this latest iteration of GT has awesome physics and car damage, then I'm glad -- it's about time. But at this point, nobody can say for certain that it's going to blow all racing sims out of the water. It's amusing to see people complain about how much hype some games receive, yet you guys fuel that hype.

Why do I like Forza? It has progressed the racing sim genre on consoles, beyond GT at this point. Do I think it's better than GT? I don't have a favorite. I love both. It's called "for the love of games", not being a fanboy. Believe me when I say that I've played the ever living crap out of the GT series, but like Forza, it has its flaws, too.
cuco33  +   2970d ago
I hope this demo sheds some light into what GT5 will eventually be like
as in live up to the hype.
zslash  +   2970d ago
Isn't this old news or am I missing something?

From the official site:
NRG  +   2970d ago
Does this game run in true 1920x1080? Or is it some weird upscaled crap we're seeing on too many damn games? I haven't done my homework.
Ri0tSquad  +   2970d ago
Yeah its true 1080p
not that upscaled crap.
unrealgamer58  +   2970d ago
Dude this game
will rock i love it psn id :unrealgamer58 (sorry had to advertise that)
PimpHandHappy  +   2970d ago
i love GT games! That rachtet demo is dam fun.

nice nice nice

btw ppl

B4 u ignore 360ppl that spew fanboy hate take away a bubble then after u have them on ignore check back every so often to see if u can take more bubbles! We need to set a few ppl straight! Look at Nasim! I have never read one comment of his because he is a total fan boy and therefor has ony one bubble!

sjappie  +   2970d ago
That's a great idea you have there!
Let's shut up the impopular opinion by means of censorship! We can't handle alternative opinions, kill them! I think it is even against n4g's rules and guidelines to post such a comment like you did.
I would like to say that your bubbles should be taken for that, but I won't, because I would be in violation to.

Kazunori give us gt5p free
Prologue must be free cuz 3 tracks 30 costs almost nearly full game cost.
level 360  +   2970d ago
So long a wait.....
Because the "real" GranTurismo 5 won't be released till next year and for the Prologue series till December, they have to give-out ( at least it's free - so no complaints here ) a "pre-prologue" of the Prologue of GranTurismo 5 before the Actual GranTurismo 5...
...will be a very long wait.
Hopefully by then, the feeling of excitement of buying/owning the "real" GranTurismo 5 has'nt died-down.

Guess I'll have to bear reading more reviews of this awesome series...
...So frustratingly long...

IT'S A DEMO!!!! IT HAS TO BE FREE! Sony probably realized their idiotic mistake on charging for a demo. Sure is sad when the sony fanboys get excited about a demo. I guess it's true that the ps3 has no games.

A demo of a demo...
The demo of the full game is $40. Except that A)It's not Sony's fault, it's (Pholophony? is that how you spell it?), and B)We've seen this before in GT4 Prologue so this shouldn't be suprising, It's pretty much for the "hardcore" GT fanbase.
wil4hire  +   2970d ago
Very nice. I was wondering why HD was removed.
This is great.
jromao  +   2970d ago
GT HD still avaiable in EURO stores
For anybody interested, setup one PSN euro account and grab GT HD 2.0, still there for download.

Note: US Store only got the GT HD 1.2 version, europe got the 2.0.
xplosneer  +   2970d ago
No, go to Games>Racing Games>GTHD
UltramanJ  +   2970d ago
It'll be interesting
to see how it compares to the GT HD demo awhile back.
Crazyglues  +   2970d ago
you know actually that is probably what I want to see the most, how it compares to the GT HD we got a taste of early in the year.

And it's a great time for it to come out, since in Nov. I will probably be glued to Call of Duty 4 and Assassin's Creed.
EZCheez  +   2970d ago
I'm still wondering
If that date is even for the US PS Store. The pricing it gives later in the article for the "full" Prologue is in yen.
