GT5 Prologue Launches in Europe, Sells Out

  While we await for the final release of the greatest thing since sliced bread, we'll gladly settle for its prologue counterpart. We're so glad to settle, in fact, that Gran Turismo 5: Prologue's release in Europe has catapulted the game to the top spot on Amazon's UK site. It holds pole position (that's #1 in auto race talk, folks) in the PC and Videogames category on the online retailer. Furthermore, Play.com, one of the largest game stores in the UK, is reporting a sell-out for initial shipments.

   Play.com has issued a message that initial shipments of GT5 Prologue, for March 25th, are all gone. If you place an order on or after today via Play.com, you will have to wait until March 31st for your order to be processed, and then-some for shipment time. What's especially impressive about this is it looks like PlayStation 3 owners still prefer the tried-and-true method of walking into a store (or going online) and actually owning a physical copy of a videogame.

   We can't disagree. We also prefer to have a nice and sleek box, coupled with box art, booklet, and the actual disc. There's just something more satisfying about adding yet another gem to your library, as opposed to downloading it and having it stored on your hard drive. Still, if you prefer to go that route, you can always hit up your PlayStation Network account and drop 18-quid for the best damn racing experience ever...that is, of course, until the full thing becomes available. Remember, 60 cars, 6 tracks (with reverse and alternate routes), tuning, amazing physics, and online.

It's out in the sense that retailers have began shipping customers their copies. People should start getting them on Friday and Saturday.

I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this, Demo/half a game whatever. GT is still GT.

As for damage, I really don't care. I mostly play GT just to drive cars I will never own or just to drive a car similar to mine (1995 Honda Accord EX-R V6) at places where I'll probably never get to go to (Germany is fun).

I wonder what happens when GTA:IV comes out. I think it will be sold out before it actually sells. Every person I know will pick it up, whether if they are a fan of the series or just a casual gamer. I can't wait!

I ordered mine from Play ages ago and I still didn't make the first batch. What a pain in the ass.
