GTPlanet has a couple of off-screen videos and screens of Gran Turismo 5 being played at the Tokyo Motor Show.
The latest update to the demo build, which was at GamesCom in Cologne in August and at Tokyo Game Show in September, is the inclusion of the Toyota FT-86: announced earlier this week.
And if you’re attending the show, you can gain a free 100 car pack for Gran Turismo on the PSP. Good deal.
GT5 is out in March 2010 in Japan.

The spectre of ‘possibilities’ reared its ugly head again today, as Sony claimed that GT PSP, readying to launch tomorrow, could only work on its handheld offerings.
“Gran Turismo – only possible on PSP and PSPgo,” it says at the end of this video ad.
Is GT PSP impossible on other platforms? Do its 800 cars and 35 tracks prohibit it working elsewhere? In Sony we trust.
The game launches alongside PSPgo in the morning.

Former Late Night host Jay Leno told Sony during an interview for the September issue of Qore, that lending his voice to Gran Turismo PSP was “an honor” and a “big thrill” for the comedian as he is a fan of the games and a maniac car-collector.
When asked about his involvment with the game, Leno said it all began when the developers asked if they could visit his legendary garage and record the different engine sounds his cars make.
“I guess they heard I had some unusual cars and they wanted to come here and record the sounds,” said Leno. “To me it was great, because as a kid, I used to buy those records – where other kids were playing the Beatles – I would have the record of the BRM 16-cylinder….
“So they call me and ask [about the cars] and I said sure it would be fun to do and they asked if I wanted to add my voice to it, and I think it’s a huge honor…and yeah it’s a big thrill.”
He waffles on a bit there, being funny and cute and such, so we didn’t type those parts so you could watch and hear it yourself.

During the press conference following Kaz’s speech at TGS, Sony dropped word that two PSP-3000 bundles would be hitting Japanese retail in December.
One of these is the Gran Turismo Racing Pack which includes a piano black PSP with the GT logo and “auto exhaust-inspired” titanium black buttons. Inside the bundle’s box are GT-styled accessories with the game on UMD.
The second bundle comes with Winning Eleven (Pro Evo 10), and Sony has yet to elaborate on what is included in it.
There’s bit more over on PlayStation Lifestyle.

Americans that take the plunge with a new PSPgo handset are to be given a free Rock Band Unplugged demo along with the hardware, according to this Kotaku piece.
Which is great. If it wasn’t for the fact that Europeans get a free copy of GT PSP.
The US offer’s a bit more than a standard demo, thankfully. It comes with five songs and it compatible with any tracks you buy from the PS Store.
