Prologue will also feature a Drift Mode, an in-depth car tuning system, two player split-screen racing, 16-player online races, and new online and offline racing events. Gran Turismo 5 Prologue will hit the PlayStation 3 on April 17 for a price of $39.99, available for download on the PlayStation Store or at retail.

    Now THAT is a game really worth looking forward to, every GT has been very great, always improved physics, graphics...

    I don't get it :confused: is it just my misinterpretation or does this game have only have 6 tracks?

    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...

    Remember this is not the full car list that GT5 is gonna have. Also the previous titles had RUF...
