Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Online Details
Posted by XanTium | 25-7-2007 12:35 EST

From 1up.com:

- PlayStation Home icon on the top menu screen: within the Home universe, there will be something like a "Gran Turismo World" galaxy. You can then enter the top menu of the game from Home, or vice-versa by selecting the respective icons.
- My Page: When the game starts, a My Page screen will also appear. In the final version, Yamauchi hopes to include a friends list as well. There will be several background images for the My Page screen such as Tokyo and other cities, but will also include sceneries of both outdoors and indoors. There is also a weather forecast displayed so that other players will know which geographic location you are in and how the weather is there.
- Chat features: Prologue will include 2 online modes, one which includes the chat features and the other which excludes this feature.
- Number of cars and course selection: about 40 cars and 4 courses with 8 different layouts. There will also be new courses which was briefly shown in the E3 trailer.
- Prologue will not have cars and course downloadables.
- Prologue falls somewhere in between the GT and Arcade mode. Players can earn reward money from each race and purchase new cars. There will be normal cars and tuned cars, but players cannot tune their own cars in this version. The save data from Prologue (such as money earned and cars purchased) can be carried over to Gran Turismo 5.
- 16 cars during races for offline mode. This may drop to 12 cars in online mode.
- Game control features "Normal Mode" based on simulation engine and "Professional Mode" based on actual car behavior and physics.
- Yamauchi hopes to include B-spec mode but it is still not decided at this point.

Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is scheduled for an October release in Japan.

Any word on a US release?
Or with the Region Free games will it be no issue to have a copy imported, aside from it being in Japanese?
