SCEA: No Prologue NA Release Date, Slated For Spring
You may have heard rumors and even "confirmations" that a North American release date for Gran Turismo 5: Prologue had been announced: February 19. This may have begun with news from the PS3Mods blog that this date had been confirmed by Sony, and the report traveled throughout the Internet from there. However, we have just learned that this information is most certainly not true.
"We don't have anything confirmed yet for GT 5: Prologue other than Spring," said Sony's Alex Armour.
Sorry, fellow racing fanatics, but you had best get that February 19 date out of your heads; it's simply not accurate. The good news is that Armour did confirm that Prologue would be available in North America as both a retail package and a PlayStation Store download, as it is in Japan. Beyond that, a date and pricing has not been revealed, so anything you see that says otherwise is bogus. But at the very least, we've gotten a chance to play the Japanese version of Prologue, so you can check out our impressions on that very soon. We will remain on the lookout for any updates regarding the North American version of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue.
