from the PS.Blog...

http://blog.us.playstation.com/2008/03/06/more-details-emerge-for-gran-turismo-5-prologue/
Summary of differences between Japanese version and the American version:

* A whopping 30+ additional vehicles (compared to the Japanese version), including tuner cars from Amuse, Mine’s, etc.
* Another track to race on: an all-time favorite in the series - frantic and chaotic High Speed Ring!
* In Drift Mode, measure your drifting technique based on driving line, angle and speed within scoring zones on the course
* With the Quick Tune feature, adjust your vehicle’s settings including power, weight, tires and suspension
* All new set of online and offline race events and time trials to jump into, win, and unlock cars/features
* With Logitech’s new Driving Force GT racing wheel, you can adjust brake bias, traction and damper settings on-the-fly like they do in real-life with Formula One and rally cars. GT5 Prologue will support DualShock 3, too!

Hmmm, more like GT5 extended demo! *warning!* sarcasm detected...
Some other thoughts:
1. Quite a few cars, but no Porsche or Lamborghini!
2. It's called a "sim", but there is no damage!
3. There's not much content in there, still it costs 40$!

I wouldn't worry about the lack of content, I can see Sony starting to pour out car and track packs for 5$. I hope there's going to be damage in the final game, for the sake of calling it a simulator!

On the bright side: the graphics are AMAZING! The cars look like nothing I've seen in any driving game released so far! Take it from me, I'm a 3d artist that is doing vehicles for next gen games ;).

No damage is like a trademark for this game so i really hope there wont be any damage, the tire damage is enough to make you pitting in so thats just about all the damage you need. This game has succeeded in making me and every one of my friends, who have ever played this game, to keep the car on the road perfectly and follow the standard course without the fear of wrecking the car, now isn't that something?

PD devs are really anal when it comes to detail and quality, so they will implement damage only when it can be modeled/simulated correctly.

So the "no damage" thing falls in the "it's a feature, not a bug category"?

im defin looking forward to this one. ive had it preordered for over a month. time just moves so slowly when waiting for these types of things. polyphony always puts the most into their games and this one will defin squeeze lots of juice from the PS3.

"Tracks" are ok, but with those graphics, i actually want to DRIVE ROUND THE CITY a bit more. You know, check out the streets. See the street names. Get to know your way round a bit. That would be nice. A bit like GTA style. "OK, you won the race, now find your way to ABC bar or XYZ bar and get yourself a drink... and collect your points" :-)

PS. On second thoughts, no, I dont want to be stuck in virtual traffic, or look for a parking place. LOL :roll:

There is no more paid DLC for the game, that idea drop some time ago. The only paid content is videos from GT:TV...

No Porsche!!!
Remember this is not the full car list that GT5 is gonna have. Also the previous titles had RUF...
