Gran Turismo 5 Prologue will get a major update to the game tomorrow where Gran Turismo TV will be up and running with PPV’s available to buy.
On Friday, August 1st, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue owners will receive a significant update that’ll take their racing experience to a new level.
The heart of this update is a new line-up of exciting automotive programming for “Gran Turismo TV”, our in-game automotive media channel. Gearheads will enjoy a host of new free and pay-per-view programming, including our own exclusive behind-the-scenes content, episodes from “Top Gear“– UK’s premier car entertainment program, and Japan’s “Best Motoring” video magazine, dedicated to performance and pleasure of driving.
Whether you’re in the mood to tour Ferrari’s factory in Italy with Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi, be insulted hearing Jeremy Clarkson talk trash about your favorite cars, or just sit back and watch some mad Japanese race drivers play ‘car soccer’, there is a variety of choices for everybody out there.
For the first 2 weeks, we are providing all pay-per-view contents for a discount price of 99c. It’s a good way to get a taste Gran Turismo TV. The HD content we shoot for our exclusive stuff looks pretty amazing.
Be sure to check http://us.playstation.com/granturismo/granturismo_tv.asp often for a full program list, as we will be adding new programs on a regular basis.
Personally I feel the need to find some American content to beef-up the roster. What do you think? We welcome any suggestions you may have.
Other gameplay enhancements come with this update, like fixes in penalty judgments, improved physics during collisions between cars during online races, more tire choices for Time Trial, etc. YES, we’ve been carefully monitoring players behaviors online and comments on the forums.
Stay tuned for more updates on Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, towards the end of this year.
