I wish i lived in Japan for prologue. Yes i knw its a demo but its hard to describe how it feels behind the logitech wheel with in car view, The gorgeous graphics still make me drool after my 50th play thru lol. Still keeping my fingers crossed for damage modelling in the final release. This for me is more for online play so ppl dnt jst cheat their way thru races.

Yep I know how you feel. Every game released in North America doesn't take long before they find their way to Japan, but Japanese games either take a long time or simply never come here. I just hope GT5 will be a simultaneous worldwide release. I've played through GT3 and GT4, but I can't wait for GT5 to blow them out of the water.

NiGHTs and GT5 Prologue, 2 big must haves. Hope they both meet commercial success.

i wonder how much the PS3 sales will spark after its release

sonarus3874d ago

considering this is jst a prologue a demo so to speak sales may not boost as high as we want. However i see this as a test to the selling power of gran turismo. I mean if you can sell systems off a demo alone you must have a really special game.

How I envy the Japanese. (This isn't a very import friendly game,what with everything being in Japanese)

Too bad localization for a game isn't as fast as fansubbing for animes...

Korosuke3874d ago (Edited 3874d ago )

It's not RPG, just grab the wheel and kick the pedal...easy to handle, I think...

Sevir043873d ago

but yes this game should amazingly well for Japan. PS3 sales has been at 40-50K weekly in japan, Wii fit Boosted Wii sales to 76K last week, i think PS3 sales will likely hit it's all time High with this Game/Demo it should prove interesting for Japan i cant wait and that nights 2 looks cool as well.
