If new rumors are correct, then the development pace over at Polyphony Digital has really ramped up. According to CNET, Gran Turismo 6 might be launching as soon as November 28 of this year.
Audi has added another adventure to its space in PlayStation Home called Audi Technology Experience. At the same time as it is teaching you about "the core technologies that keep Audi at the forefront of automotive design," like quattro, e-tron and Audi Connect, it allows you to configure a car and drive it on one of three tracks.
A steering-wheel-and-pedal setup for your PS3 starts at around $50, but you'll spend at least double that to get into the good stuff. HKS has teamed with InterWorks on a game controller solution that stays at the $50 mark but could work just as well as a wheel while being a little less intrusive.
Audi called "Shotgun" on Playstation Home, and is so far the only automaker to take its case to those gamers with its Audi Space. First came the e-Tron Vertical Run racing game, which has lured more than 700,000 players into running more than a million races with the electric beast. Idiots.
One day we're going to finally get our hands on Gran Turismo 5. And when we sample Polyphony Digital's long-awaited sequel we'd be amazed (and delighted) if the game lives up to its constantly growing hype. While we still have absolutely no idea when GT5 will hit the shelves, when it does arrive it will come strong with a raft of new features gamers have been clamoring for.
The release date for Gran Turismo 5 hops around so much we're going to call the game The Flea from now on. From a couple of dates late this year to early next year in Japan to possibly, maybe, potentially a Summer release for the U.S. It's not that we can't keep up anymore -- we might just be tired of trying.
