Welcome to the PS3 Attitude Retro Review, where we take another look at titles that were released at least six months ago and discover whether they still ought to garner your attention. This time, it is the turn of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue.
It appears that more evidence has risen that suggests Gran Turismo 5 will be releasing this year after all, despite no official announcement at Gamescom.
A picture from GTPlanet that is said to be of the game’s official brochure given out by Sony at Gamescom strengthens the possibility that the game could still release before 2010.
Sony’s execs get loose lipped in Spain (maybe it was the Sangria?) and reveal the launch date for Gran Turismo 5. And it’s a festive one!
There are few games that could be considered the flagship of the PlayStation brand. Ratchet & Clank, God of War and even the Uncharted series all are synonymous with PlayStation but how many can you name that have appeared on every Sony console, from the original PlayStation to even the PSP?
While you might having a hard time naming a few, there’s no doubt that Gran Turismo should come to mind.
Let’s explore the lineage of the Gran Turismo franchise from its early days on the PlayStation to its real life influences as we eagerly await the highly anticipated launch of Gran Turismo 5 on the PS3 this week.
Gran Turismo 5 feels like an age ago but we never expected to see the 6th installment so soon. For those who may be feeling bored with GT5, with it’s last-gen graphics*, can now look forward to GT6 and it’s Anniversary Edition.
*May be a big, dirty lie.
Yesterday evening, Sony announced the future of Gran Turismo at the franchise’s 15th Anniversary event at Silverstone, the home of the British Grand Prix. It turns out that its future is in Gran Turismo 6, which (as has been widely reported across the internet over the last few weeks) is coming to PS3 this winter.
Every week, we share what new games are newly available for PS3, Vita, and sometimes PSP. Full PS3 disc-based games often turn into digital downloads, new PSN titles from respected long running franchises as well as indie gems, and minis for days.
The recent release of LittleBigPlanet on PlayStation Vita has opened the floodgates for massive franchises to appear on the system, with the heavyweights of Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty to follow very soon. The Vita could always do with more games though, so we’ve been discussing which franchises we’d most like to see on Sony’s fledgling handheld.

Every generation, Sony takes one of its biggest franchises and turns it into a kart racer; on PSone it was Crash Bandicoot, on PS2 it was Jak and Daxter, and on PS3 it will be LittleBigPlanet. Kart racers are often looked upon with contempt by many gamers, because it normally signals the end of a console generation, and a refocus towards a more casual audience.
However, they also (usually) happen to be bloody good fun, so PS3 Attitude thought we’d take a look at which other games we’d like to see given the kart racing treatment.
Just in time for All Hallow’s Eve Sucker Punch hath released the long awaited vampire themed DLC pack, inFamous: Festival of Blood. Prospective vampires rejoice!

Yesterday, Sony in partnership with Mercedes-Benz hosted a competition which had former F1 driver David Coulthard thrash around the famous Top Gear Test Track in real life while gamers challenged his times in Gran Turismo 5. David Coulthard won, but there was less than half a second in it. It was thrilling to watch.
Gran Turismo 5’s reputation as the ‘real driving simulator’ was tested today in an event held by Sony in partnership with Mercedes-Benz.
Six gamers, in their racing pods, tackled the virtual Top Gear Test Track, while former F1 driver David Coulthard ripped up the real thing. The Flying Scotsman was the winner, but the result couldn’t have been any closer.
This is news that will surely make a few PS3 Attitude posters happy. Gran Turismo Anywhere – the feature that allows you to drive B-Spec races remotely from another device – is expected to be available from early February. This date came directly from Gran Turismo’s creator Kazunori Yamauchi via his Twitter account (translated by Rob Groove).
Nurburgring Nordschleife is one of the most famous tracks in the world, and it’s also Kazunori Yamauchi’s favourite track. The car-obsessed creator of Gran Turismo has spent years trying to recreate the Ring in all its glory. Well, a racer in Germany has been putting his creation to the test, so we’re now in a position to ask the question: just how accurate is the virtual Nurburgring?
My oh my, what an insanely awesome month just passed. November is always known for being a big one in the gaming world but both the amount and quality of the games that just hit shelves is staggering. In case you missed any of them, we’ve got them all right here in one place. To go along with it, we’ve also got the latest news on several new streaming movie/tv apps in both Europe and North America.
We have a feeling that a lot of people will be too absorbed in a certain driving simulator to have much interest in today’s Store update, but to be fair if you thought SCEE would give us a small update this week then you’d be wrong.
For a start, there are several PSN games released, including Pac-Man Championship Edition DX and Funky Lab Rat, as well as downloadable content for Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Mafia II and Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light.
It’s also worth mentioning this week’s deals, which include offers on all Prince of Persia related content. There’s also a long overdue permanent price cut of the Awakening expansion for Dragon Age: Origins, which is actually a bit of a bargain now.
So, can any of this content tempt you away from the racing behemoth that is Gran Turismo 5?
Gran Turismo 5 is released today, and portable racing fans are storming into the lead. One of the game’s neatest features is the ability to transfer car data from Gran Turismo Portable, making those pint-sized cars available in the big game – they get bigger. So, if you ploughed hours into the PSP version, why not take advantage of your library of over 800 cars and get a head-start on the rest?
Gran Turismo 5 will be hitting stores tomorrow, much to the delight of PlayStation 3 owners around the world. It’s the latest in a series that dates back to 1997, when Gran Turismo first arrived on the PSOne. However, Gran Turismo is actually much older than that; Kazunori Yamauchi (and his team of seven) started developing the original back in 1992. Yes, a staggering 18 years ago.
