According to PSU, Polyphony Digital will be releasing GT 5 Prologue on March 19th, 2008 for only $39.99 USD.
hahah what a joke the ps3 is realseing a demo and charing a full games price hahahahahaha this is to recover from the dismall software sales the ps3 is cursed to have till the release of the ps4 as 50% of the ps3 install base buy i to play blue ray.
This is way more than a demo.I mean 50 cars more than 5 tracks,16 player online matches.The price is justified.So all u cheapstakes,if u think $40 is too much just dont buy it.However dont try to say that $40 is too much.I personally would have paid full price.Thats because I am a real GT fan!
This will be an instant hit for ps3. It will easily hit 1000000 pretty fast.
GT5P is huge even if its a demo
Considering GT4 Prologue became platinum its very possible this one too :)
that's a lot. I mean this isn't the real Gran Turismo 5 and it's only $20 less.
I don't get it.
Gran Turismo 5 Prolouge $39.99
Gran Turismo 5 $59.99
Some people are gonna get confused or something.
Thats about £20, which i think is a bargin. ill be downloading asap.
$39.99. Thats means in the uk it should be around £20 but knowing how we never pay the dollar to pound ratio we will probab;y get screwed over again and have to pay about £25. Count me out if it is. Especially as i can get the whole game later for £40. To expensive for one equates to about 1/8 of the final game.
perhaps your right, or perhaps just a little tight. GT doesnt even have a release date so im happy to pay £25 to get my hand on the best driving game going sooner, even if it is only 1/8th.
Each to their own i guess.
lol 40 dollars for a demo! LOL
£50 for a online service???? LOL....
nice work troll....
And before any of you idiots try too claim that gt prologue isnt a demo..here is the definition of prologue and demo and tell me they aint the same
because in the land of wait beyond facts mean speculation and speculation means fact.
therefor the definition of prologue or demo is the full game or entirety of the play.
Seriously, $40 for a demo??? It would be cool if they give you some discount when the real game came out. But looks like you're going to have to put up another $60 for the same game with extra content. Sure looks like Sony knows how idiotic their fans are. Paint the word "Sony Exclusive" on a used toilet seat and it will be called the next AAA title by sony fans.
Considering this "Demo" has as much or more content as a lot of full racers I dont see a problem with the price. Plus it GT, its the best, its worth it.
Tightarses dont buy PS3's anyway. People who eat caviar dont worry about the price of fish eggs.
wow...I wish i knew as much as you...*falls over laughing* lets see caviar is a broadterm of fisheggs enjoyed by many peoples all over the world, Its not like all fisheggs *caviar* cost 100 dollars per lb.
A good all purpose lumpfish cavier can be had about 10 dollars per lb, there are many different forms of caviar and not all are expensive...you've obviously never had caviar before...so dont make stupid analogies.
but your a sonyfanboy, sony could label tuna eggs as caviar and you'd buy it.
Let me expand upon that, Sony could label tuna eggs as buluga caviar (super rare endangered species) and you'd buy it for like 1000 dollars an ounce or higher.
this game is a demo a demo and nothing but, now if sony we're to offer a lower price to those that buy the full game that buy this...fine but in the end that wont happen and you'll be paying 100 dolllars for a demo and a full game..
Edit: wow mighty douche i have less credibility then a man that killed 10s of millions of jews...yep shows as a sonyfanboy the depth of illogical thought capacity you have.
Shows the priorities on a list for sonyfanboys...someone that badmouths a sony product is much worse then someone that killed 10s of millions of jews...because badmouthing sony is unforgiveable.
Edit2: and dont complain douche you come into 360 exclusive game articles all the time and bad mouth.
lol, thats right owned by a dude with less credibility than hitler. Im sure Bathyj is in tears...
why are you 360 t!ts even here? you wont get GT so it doesnt matter how much it would cost your mummy and daddy. Frankly its a better deal than £50 a year for an online service other offer for free and they work.
EDIT @ WILL, please direct me to a 360 thread where i have needlessly spammd to your level?
Dont worry about them MD, they just have nothing else to do for fun. Seriously, giving me a lecture on caviar?, ooooooooo, burn. Thats getting fkn desperate.
You know why I'll be so happy when PS3 eventually overtakes X360 in sales. Not cos I want it to win so much, just so these guys will shut the hell up. They'll have no comeback and half of them might even top themselves. Think I'll buy some fish eggs that day. I might spend as much as $20 a lb.
After reading up on the details of the game, I don't really see it as a demo anymore. It's more of a beta than anything.
$40 will be 40 Euro's here, which is only 20 Euro's less than the full game. And this game has what, 5 environments? Sorry, that's just not done.
Just a sincere inquiry here: What more does this game offer?
-What are the online modes?
-How many cars?
-Are the cars customizable, visually and technically?
-If there's no visual damage, is there atleast technical damage?
These are important factors to take into account. Even if the game includes this things, 40 Euro's is still way overpriced for a game with only 5 environments!
Too bad, I was really looking forward to this one.
I like that you completely write off buying it then go on to ask question about what it contains.
I can remeber people moaning when Warhawks price was released yet everyone who bought it thinks its worth every penny. i think it might be a little early to say NO to GT5P. Personally i think ALL PSN titles have been worth their price, i doubt this will be any different.
Just to clarify, I'm not buying this game at full price no. That's a given. But I might pick it up second hand for 20 Euro's, if it offers enough to justify that pricetag.
I don't know about Warhawk or what other people think about it's pricing. I'm talking about GT5p here now and what kind of standards I have for spending 40 Euro's. And mearly 5 environments is a HUGE dealbreaker. I'm someone who needs that diversation in environments to keep me interested for a longer period, regardless of the game genre.
Btw, you're right in that the first sentence of my previous post, namely: "Well, they just lost a potential customer here." isn't entirely correct. If I buy it second hand I'm still a customer, though not the kind they'd want me to be. So you can ignore that sentence. ;)
I wonder if it will offer some content (cars or tracks) that won't be in the final version? Would be awesome if it gave you some kind of free content for when you get the full version later. Maybe a couple of limited cars or something. Would be a nice selling point. If not, the game is not worth anything as soon as GT5 is released. I'm not in any way saying that GT5 Prologue lacks content or anything (it's probably worth more than many full games) but knowing that GT5 will be released later on might turn some people off. Unless you're a die hard GT fan who enjoy owning the entire collection =)
I'm kind of divided as to wether to buy this or not. Also, is there the possibility of the rest of the game coming out as cheaper down loadable content? Say, $30 for the rest of the game? That would make a lot more sense than having to buy everything you already have with GT5P all over again.
At $39.99 GT5: Prologue is just too pricey for me. I'm not a huge racing game fan so I can easily wait another 6 months to a year and buy the full game for $20.00 more.
ive got it already.japanese version mind you.still good though and cost only 30 quid on ebay.i be playing mine to death why you lot have got to wait until march.
Is this being released via PS Network as well, or strictly retail?
