Confusion over. The GT Academy 2010 Time Trial track releasing on December 17 is definitely GT5 code. This is your first chance to get a proper play of what will almost certainly be the biggest racing game of 2010.
“Yes, it’s GT5 code,” a PR rep just told us by email.
The taster will be a single track for the 2010 GT Academy competition.
Speculation mounted following the announcement of the demo’s release that it would simply be a new track in the Prologue engine: now you know.
So yeah. Get pumped. There’s no date on the game outside Japan as yet.

Polyphony Digital launched the Gran Turismo Café at Twin Ring Motegi circuit in Japan last week.
Apparently, the “exterior, interior, and even the staff uniforms have been decorated in the image of Gran Turismo, and there are additional items added to the already popular menu lineup as well.”
The restaurant even has booths where you can play GT5 Prologue.
Japan always seems to get the cool stuff.

Half-Life isn’t the only birthday boy in the house today: Gran Turismo is now ten, and celebrated with a party in New York at which the game was played at 240fps and 3840×2160 resolution. Just for a laugh, like.
Four PS3s were used to create the merged image of 8.2 million pixels.
There’s a full report on how is was done here.

Sony’s patched GT5: Prologue with three new cars, according to this Eurogamer piece, meaning you can now get your hands on the “GT by Citroen” concept car, the Ferrari California and the Lotus Evora.
Apparently there’s also tweaks added to the penalty system, race events and other miscellaneous bits and bobs.

On ThreeSpeech. According to the Sony-affiliated site, “GT TV will broadcast full high-def content on demand, footage from racing events around the world, automobile news, and much more.”
Much more? We hope so. Take a look. GT TV launches on August 1 and is accessed through GT5: Prologue.

In this month’s OPSM, Polyphony head Kazunori Yamauchi said that Gran Turismo 5 will probably feature sexy car manufacturer, Porsche.
“We’ll have most – no, all of the major manufacturers,” said Yamauchi when asked about what manufacturers he’d always wanted to see in the game.
“So, come on… Porsche?” pushed OPSM. “Probably,” he replied.
GT5 is still about year away unfortunately.

Kazunori Yamauchi has said in an Austrian interview that Gran Turismo may come to PC as a necessity for a Chinese launch.
“It is very, very improbable that GT will comes out on another console,” he said, speaking to derStandard.at. “But perhaps it comes to the PC. Particularly [so we could spread the game in] the Chinese market.”
Changes to the once untouchable series seem to be coming thick and fast at the moment, what with the inclusion of for-all online play and the promise of damage for Prologue later this year.
GT5: Prologue has just launched in Europe and hits the US at the end of this week.

In what’s hopefully the last Kazunori Yamauchi interview for the day – courtesy of EGM – the Polyphony boss explained that the reason behind the delay of the PSP version of Gran Turismo was due to difficulties thrown up by PlayStation 3 development.
“We had been developing the PSP version, but the problem was that the PS3 version took much more time and effort than we had first imagined,” he said. “So that’s been delayed – I don’t think we’ll be able to make the end of this year for the PSP version, but we are working on it.”
No more. If you’ve got a Kazunori interview, don’t blame us for not running it.

Another Yamauchi interview, this time from Videogamer.com. The Polyphony Digital boss plays other racers, he admitted, but they’re all rubbish.
“I try them out a little bit,” Yamauchi said when asked is he played the likes of Forza and PGR. “The only impression I get from those games is that the only benchmark for Gran Turismo is Gran Turismo and we have to base ourselves on that.”
Haughty. We like that. Expect at least one more of these today.

Speaking to CVG, Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi’s confirmed that a PSP version of Gran Turismo is still on the way but it’s going to be a GT5 add-on.
“I don’t think Gran Turismo Mobile will make this year,” he said, “but we are hoping to make the PSP version a satellite game, like an addition to GT5.”
GT5′s about a year off, so it’s going to be a while before you’re fiddling with Yamauchi’s motor in the palm of your hand.
There’s a full interview through that link. Apparently Eurogamer’s got one going up today as well, so watch out for that.

Speaking to CVG, Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed that a “major update” is coming for Gran Turismo 5: Prologue later this year, which will add long-promised car damage and extra community features.
Yamauchi said in February that GT5 would create a global community for fans of the game, so this sounds like the start of it all.
He promised that damage was on the way to the series last last week, but didn’t put a time-scale on it apart from “very, very soon”.

According to this. The previous holder of the record was Insomniac shooter Resistance. Being Britain, we have no actual sales figures because Chart-Track only lets the president of the world see them, or something, so you’ll just have to take the British stats company’s word for it.

According to this, if you downloaded GT5: Prologue from PSN yesterday you may find that you can only play it if you’re connected to the service. As in, you can’t play it offline.
Also, you can’t transfer the file, as it’s linked specifically to the account that downloaded it, although we can’t quite see why you’d want to do that anyway.
Sounds like it might have been better to buy the disc, no?

Here. The game’s now up on the European PSN and is available for download.
GT5: Prologue was supposed to release yesterday on PS3′s online service, but was delayed due to “technical” problems, according to a statement issued by SCEE earlier today.
The wait’s over, anyway. Go fetch, assuming you haven’t bought the disc out of wild frustration at not being able to download it at midnight last night.
Update: SCEE just made the following statement:
We would like to apologise for the lack of a PS Store refresh yesterday. As previously mentioned, we unfortunately experienced some last minute technical difficulties and were unable to publish the new content as planned. However, we have been working hard to resolve these issues and are pleased to be able to let you know that the… content is now live on the UK store.
Fri, Mar 28, 2008 | 14:17 GMT
A rumour’s doing the rounds that Gran Turismo 5: Prologue will be available for download between 3pm and 6pm today.
A rumour appeared earlier today saying the game might not be available until tomorrow.
We’re still waiting on an official release statement from SCEE.

SCEE’s made a statement regarding the fact GT5: Prologue failed to turn up on the European PSN last night, blaming tech issues for the snafu.
“Unfortunately due to some last minute technical difficulties, we were unable to publish the new content to the PS Store yesterday,” said a spokesperson. “We are working to resolve these issues and will let you know as soon as new content is posted.”
The statement was posted on ThreeSpeech, and we’re still waiting from an official comment on Sony central. All very exciting this, isn’t it?
Fri, Mar 28, 2008 | 11:33 GMT
This is reporting that European gamers may not be able to do download the racer until Saturday.
We’ll keep phoning. Expect to see SCEE make some kind of statement on this later today.
Update: Just had a mail from SCEE PR. They’re waiting for comment from central office, apparently, so looks as though a statement’s on the way.
