Later this year, European and Australian gamers will get their first taste of the next in the Gran Turismo series with the Prologue edition. Gran Turismo for years has remained untouched as the best driving simulator but Turn 10 and Microsoft are starting to give Kaz and his team a real run for their money, so many see GT5 as one of the most crucial and biggest Playstation 3 releases of 2008 and we can't but help agree. We recently got a build of Prologue to play around with and while it is only a Prologue, it's clear this is going to be one of the biggest games of 2008.
Since the release of Gran Turismo 4 it seems like we have been bombarded month after month with racing games of various quality. The standout for 2007 was the Xbox 360 exclusive Forza 2, which probably has a few people nervous about Gran Turismo and its dominance of the market. Gran Turismo 5 prologue gives us a taste of what's to come, and that taste is sweet and bountiful.
