    Nope, you're a bit off. This is a seperate game it seems, a demo downloadable for the PS3.

    Think of it a new "GT4 Prologue".

    They say something about they changed their plan with GT HD. It also says that they will include some of the features that were planned for GT HD in GT5.

    I think we need a good translator.

    Funky. So GTHD is completely dead, we're now going to get multiple mini installments, for free, similar to GT Concept and GT4 Prologue.

    Good, I'm happy with these mini installments/demo's to keep me going till GT5.

    Although I don't mind paying for a Prologue style game based off GT5. (just like Prologue was for GT4)

    Great news, but it looks like we'll only see Time Attack lap rankings as the "online mode".

    Gran Turismo HD Concept content:
    * 10 cars
    * Course 1, Course 2
    * Time Attack and Drift Trial modes
    * Network ranking

    There is a problem with these automatic translators.:grumpy:

    Google would translate "Recording course 1 course 2 layout" and that is missleadingly. - It should be "Recording course: 1 course, 2 layouts".

    So it is not "course 1 course2". It's "1 course, 2 layouts".

    My reason to get a PS3 just dwindled a bit.

    Though, you gotta' love the price of free.

    I now have no reason to get a PS3 until GT5, great. Oh well, I'll just have to wait. *twiddles thumbs* :)

    i polyphony could use this as a beta testing program almost :p like pc game developers release an open beta... and they ask people to report bugs... so then the full game comes out more polished.

    Well done to PD/Sony for not trying to rip us off with another "stocking filler" game before the next installment. The promise of more than one of these releases does make it sound like they are using players as beta testers, which is fine, so long as they don't charge you for it. Folks don't mind helping to improve a game so long as they don't ahve to play for it.

    Now I will wait until GT5 is released beofre I get that PS3, but at least there will be something in the way of a GT game/demo to play in the mean time for the early convertors.

    That idea is too narrow. PD have been full of surprises, over the years, so we could have a variation on the 13 one-brand, free GT4 demos we got earlier, or we could have a completely new scenario.

    Cheers,

    MasterGT

    I think it's a smart move to make GT HD not a full game, but another reason is because there is no online mode for GT HD. However you got to remember GTHD was first planned not to be a full game, just a type of demo.

    Did you even read the article? It says no plans for the US at the moment, but it's likely.

    What's the use of releasing GT HD if half of the world doesn't even have a PS3.

    Because things like this sell a console. If every game maker took your attitude there would be no games at all. Doh!
