Gran Turismo goes online - IGN's first impressions

Polyphony Digital's Christmas gift to Gran Turismo 5 Prologue players (the game is out in Japan, in case you weren't aware) arrived around noon on Christmas Day in the form of an update enabling online play.

What's that? You thought Prologue was supposed to be online from the start?

While the game was originally announced that way, just prior to its Japanese release earlier this month, Sony announced that online play wouldn't make it into the initial build. Instead, it would be enabled as part of a Christmas update.

When your connection is being taken up by others downloading... isn't it obvious there would be lag if you have a slow connection?

i feel sorry for ps3 owners they get everything in segmetns a tiny bit at a time how can u pay $40 for a demo? or peharps this is another swindel as i bet prologue is actually a gt5 demo but named defferent so ppl pay for it as it must have teken millions to unlock the basic power of the ps3 so they need a way to make up their cash as this game wont sell a inch when the full game comes out.

I'm glad the online system seems to work, hopefully a bit more work for the full release and it'll be perfect.

Is it possible to download other people's Ghosts or what about keeping contact with friends and such?

PirateThom3804d ago

For time trial you can download other people's ghost, but there doesn't seem to be any communications or friend lists at the moment.

Salvadore3804d ago

It could either be for that reason or because it's only 1.2 of the game.
