‘Grand Turismo HD’ Coming to Playstation 3 This Winter

Today at the Tokyo Game Show, Sony officially renamed ‘Vision GT’ to a more fitting ‘Grand Turismo HD’ and revealed a few additional details, as well as an expected launch window.

“Available this winter, exclusively on PLAYSTATION 3, Gran Turismo HD serves as a glimpse into the evolution of the franchise and provides gamers with two types of game modes that offer an unparalleled racing experience suited for the next-generation of gaming. In Gran Turismo HD, gamers will have access to GT HD Premium and GT HD Classic. GT HD Premium features cars and tracks like never before in full high definition quality. GT HD Classic features unique online gameplay that not only provides head-to-head racing, but allows for the long awaited feature of additional cars (ranging up to 770 car models) and tracks (up to 51) available through ongoing downloads. During gameplay in Gran Turismo HD, players have the ability to manage race regulations, online competition and communities, as well as organize race events.

With unlimited network gameplay and dowloadable content, Gran Turismo HD opens doors for further opportunities of online entertainment on PLAYSTATION 3. With the availability and range of cars and tracks featured in Gran Turismo HD, this Pure Driving Simulator encourages and enables players to create their own World of GT.”

So to sum up, ‘Grand Turismo HD’ will in fact NOT not be a launch title and include all the downloads and online features we’ve already become accustomed to on Xbox 360. But at least it will be presented in 1080p video, right? Start your engines.
