Sony on Tuesday said the precursor to Gran Turismo 5 will be available on Blu-ray and as a download from the PlayStation Store.

The highly anticipated game comes with 60 vehicles, 16-person online multiplayer, and rumble support via the soon to be released Dual Shock 3 controller. It will cost US$39.99 on Blu-ray disc or as a download.

"Ten years following the introduction of Gran Turismo on PSOne, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue delivers the most realistic and technologically advanced racing experience on any platform," said Jeff Reese, SCEA's director of software marketing. "With 1080p graphics, revolutionary online features like Gran Turismo TV, and the new in-cockpit racing view, the world's best-selling racing franchise will once again set the standard for racing games."
