Gran Turismo5 Prologue released on the market in North America

SCEA (Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc.) announced the North American release today of Gran Turismo(TM) 5 Prologue for PLAYSTATION(R)3 (PS3(TM)) exclusively. Developed by the Polyphony Digital Inc., Gran Turismo 5 Prologue’s the fifth installment of the best-selling racing franchise in the world and a powerful precursor to Gran Turismo(TM)5.

On Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, the players can drive 70 cars from top auto manufacturers including Ferrari, Ford and Nissan around six rendered courses, each having two race routes. Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is introducing various revolutionary series modes, including support for 16 players head-to-head racing online and offline, complete with race events plus leader boards to quell all the questions of who’s the best driver in this "World of GT."

"Ten years after the Gran Turismo series debuted on PS one(R), Gran Turismo 5 Prologue arrives exclusively on PS3 as the most technologically advanced racing simulator on any platform," said Jeff Reese, director, software marketing, SCEA. "With a great vehicle roster, unprecedented realism, online racing and support for the new DUALSHOCK(R)3 wireless controller, this is the Gran Turismo fans have been waiting for."
