All eyes of the gaming world are on Cologne, Germany, as Sony holds a massive three-hour long press conference today. The star of the show is widely rumored to be a new “PS3 Slim”, designed to replace the PlayStation 3 at a lower price point to drive sales. However, three hours is a terribly long time to talk about just one new device, and we’ve heard that Gran Turismo 5 news will also be coming out of the show. Nothing is guaranteed, however, and it would be wise to not expect too much to be revealed about GT5 before GT PSP hits store shelves on October 1st. With that said, it would certainly be a great opportunity for Sony to reveal another trailer for the game while committing to solid a release date.
Sony’s conference begins today, August 18, 2009 at 6:00 PM in Cologne, Germany, 5:00 PM in London, and 12:00 PM in New York (click here to find out what time this will be in your area). The GTPlanet News Blog will be updated immediately if/when Gran Turismo information is announced. Keep an eye on the clock, and your finger on that GTPlanet bookmark (we’ll be posting live updates on Twitter and Facebook, too)!
