This is speculation, but not exactly a rumor since it comes from a Sony Europe press release. While talking about the Gran Turismo HD Concept
for download on day one of the European launch, Sony let slip a hint that more GT goodness will be gracing the consoles soon
. Since Sony and Polyphony said they weren't going to add more to the HD Concept
demo (if memory serves), this leads one to believe that Gran Turismo 5
is at least going to be demo-worthy by year's end.
From the press release: "A big year for Gran Turismo starts with a free download for PS3 owners. We can't say too much right now, but it's going to be a big year for this title; Gran Turismo HD Concept is just the beginning." So, maybe Sony hasn't been lying around complacently after releasing that concept demo -- they've been hard at work getting things done. Sweet. What do you guys think? A new HD Concept demo, or GT5?
