European GT5 Prologue dated, priced

End of March on Blu-ray and PSN.

Sony has announced that Gran Turismo 5 Prologue will be released on Blu-ray and PSN at the end of the month.

The Blu-ray version will retail for GBP 24.99 in silly old shops from 28th March - a Friday (and not a Wednesday as Sony originally stated).

But those of you with PSN can get it a day earlier on Thursday 27th March, when the weekly update will include a downloadable version of the game.

"PSN and Blu-ray prices are the same," a Sony spokesperson told Eurogamer.

Also available on 28th March, if you haven't even got a PS3, is a bundle including the 40GB version of the console and the Blu-ray game for GBP 299.99.

GT5 Prologue is a mini Gran Turismo 5 featuring 71 cars, 1080p visuals, online racing for up to 16 players and a "Gran Turismo TV" channel through PSN which keeps you up to date with global motorsport.

As Sony states, "The complete Gran Turismo 5 launches in 2009", but in the meantime this ought to keep you busy, with our own Rob Fahey devouring the Japanese version gratefully earlier this year.

Look out for a full review soon.
