If you've been waiting for Gran Turismo 5 , you'll be able to get a taste of the game when the "Prologue" becomes available as a download via the PlayStation Store or from traditional retail outlets in late 2007.
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue will feature over 40 cars including vehicles from manufacturers such as Lotus, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Ferrari, and real-life tracks including the Eiger Nordwand, the London City Track and Suzuka.
Online racing is also enabled for the first time in the series’ history with up to 16 players able to battle it out. There will be global online rankings, My Garage homepages where players can chat with friends and show off their motors, and a Gran Turismo TV channel packed with motor and racing content.
The full Gran Turismo 5 is slated for a 2008 release.
