Gran Turismo 5: Prologue arrived today and boy what a killer. It's got me hooked tighter than a fly stuck in flypaper. Enough red neck, let's talk about a game. With 50 cars and a handful of tracks, it makes you think about the fact that this is considered a demo and the full game is due out later this year. For $35 (discount, woot) you can't go wrong with this racing simulator. It has major car manufacturers and their prize cars. It has a slick interface. It has amazing physics. It has amazing graphics (thanks to the nVidia graphics processor). It has amazing sound. It's just all around addicting like nicotine. Why would you want to get up from the couch when you're busy racing through the heart of London in a BMW M3? To top it all off, the in-car view is to die for. Realistic in-car layouts with functioning and animated dials and displays with an animated avatar with arms that move with you, and shift for you, too. That's all for the blog for this week... If you have GT5: P... I'll see you online?
