Gran Turismo.. it was the reason I bought a Sony Playstation.. it was my most anticipated game for the Sony Playstation 2 (I was actually in Japan with Jeff Igushi WD on launch date.. we lined up in the morning and picked up our GT2).. and I’ve long believed that it would be the reason that would drive me to buy a Sony Playstation 3.
Well, Sony is releasing/released all kinds of Gran Turismo “stuff”.. Gran Turismo HD (December 23, 2006).. Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (December 13, 2007).. and sometime in 2008, Gran Turismo 5 will arrive.
Well, I’ll be picking up a Sony Playstation 3 this holiday season (although it has nothing to do with the fact it is the holiday season.. it has everything to do with a friend moving out of the country and hooking up his PS3 at a good price). So naturally, the first thing I wanted to do was to find out more about Gran Turismo 5 and when it will be released. During my search, I came across Sony’s Gran Turismo World site.. and the video is awesome.. hearing the music brought back a flood of memories (if I recall, the music in this video was the same music in the Japanese version of GT1 and GT2.. the US version got some other crap).
At least I’ll be able to play the “demos” for now.. but as it is, all sites I found simply say that Gran Turismo 5 will be lauched sometime in 2008 🙁
