Sony worldwide boss Kaz Hirai has announced that Gran Turismo 5 Prologue will be released for PSN and Blu-ray in Japan on 13th December.
The news escaped from his Tokyo Game Show 2007 keynote address, which finished just moments ago.
However, no price was mentioned for the game, nor was a date for US and European versions.
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is a taster of what to expect from the full GT5 package sometime in the future. It's got shiny cars, online play, and a handful of courses to try out.
Sony's grand plan is the release the racing game on both PlayStation Network and Blu-ray disc, although the difference in content is also yet to be confirmed.
