IGN: Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Hands-on

IGN writes:

"We've been playing the Japanese release for some time now in the office, but today we finally managed to score a preview build of the US version of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. Fans of the series already know that the US release in April will sport a bevy of enhancements over its Japanese brethren, including more cars, tuning options, split-screen racing and more."

polyphony should have just gone all out and included a 100 cars in prologue and 4 more tracks. For me the online aspect is going to have the most value. I am somehow praying that they can at least have the same features forza has. GT is a better game for me but forza features like car auctioning and customization really shine in my eyes. GT5 is still probably a yr away. Customization isn't a must but i would love to see that and auctioning appear. I love the fact that they were able to hit 16 player online races.

I am pretty sure they will hit with DLC too. It should also be free considering they don't want us paying too much. With JP getting only 40 cars and no split screen i am sure polyphony will be releasing updates. The guy even said damage modeling was a possibility for future updates.

it is flat out gorgeous. I think I'll wait for GT5 since Burnout is really all I want in a car game for now.

Fair enough, i can see why people would rather wait, me on the other hand, i adore GT games, and can't wait for this to come out ^_^

As for being a huge hit. 1million already sold in europe, so your talking maybe 2million + Lifetime sales.

i'm still indecided if ill download on the Euro PS store or wait for the blu-ray format american version.

sonarus3868d ago

same here. The temptation of GT5P is too much for me to resist. I too am stuck in the download or buy dilenma but i am leaning more towards download

KatanaSteel3867d ago

i'm the same, downloading it is tempting, but then again I like to have the physical media. I think the download is out on the 27th March whilst the actual BluRay disc is out 28th in the shops, so an early release on the PSN might swing it for me :)

3 months ago i would never have thought how key GT5:P would be to the playstation 3 but i guess the GT series is THAT good

Whoooop3868d ago (Edited 3868d ago )

I've never been a great fan of GT nor car games, but I've bought 2 GT's. Maybe because of the hype or maybe because of the realism.

This time around I just can't forget about it because it looks so damn beautiful. This game has me almost sold just because of visuals.

Now the problem is that there's too many must buy games this year and I'm not sure if it's better for me to wait for the full game in 2009.

If sites and user reviews are good, then I will be forced to buy the damn game/demo... poor me.

If you can wait till next year for this game, you either are very poor or have nerves of steel. I just can't wait. I'm ready to play! I'm ready! I'm ready!

Whoooop3868d ago

I'm not rich, but I'm not poor...

I just have to administrate my money in other things too

Also I don't have time like I used too to play so many games and this year will keep me sleepless with all the games I really want.

GT5prologe for me is a nice addition if I decide to buy it.

Master of Menace3868d ago (Edited 3868d ago )

Even the mighty Forza 2, can't get close to this game! And it's fans are LEGION. This is gonna sell alot of PS3's. We'll see how right I am, very soon!

doodle3868d ago

when GT5 hits europe console war totally comes to an end

can you even imagine that it has over 1 million in preorders . halo3 never even had 300k preorders in europe

It is over for MS on the 28th of March 2008

I was playing burnout until i got GT5 Prologue (the japanese version). It's that good. I'm looking forward to GRID. If you're a driving/racing gamer, this almost seem like the golden age.
