Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, Polyphony Digitalâ€™s â€˜tasterâ€™ for the next installment of the renown series, has finally been dated and priced for release here in the US. Blu-ray and online download for the game will both be priced at $39.99, though the blu-ray release does come with some extra features for you enthusiasts. Set for release on the 17th of April, it seems that the US version will also come alone with a total of 60 cars! This is around 23 more than the Japanese version! What remains to be seen is whether the additional cars will be released on the PSN for you importers. Hit the jump for additional details.
GT5:P has already been out in Japan since before the holidays, though it hasnâ€™t been particularly hard to get your hands on one. Sales seem to be pretty decent, with sales hitting 50k on just the first day of release. Nevertheless, some seem adamant about refusing to pay $40 for what could be considered a â€˜demo,â€™ while the hardcore racing group is reveling at just the opportunity to play a bit of the game before the big one comes. However, Iâ€™m sure we can all agree that this is one amazing looking game: (Yes this shot is in-game)
