Gran Turismo 5 Prologue downloadable (in Japan) this October

After making an impressive debut at E3 last week, it was revealed that the Gran Turismo Prologue download will be available on the Japanese PlayStation Network come October. (Hardcore GT fans have already created Japanese PSN accounts in preparation.) The cars that will be featured in the GT sampler will include some to be revealed at the Tokyo Auto Show.

In addition, this downloadable title will feature two things Gran Turismo HD did not: online multiplayer, and a price. Currently listed as "TBA," Prologue may not be as free as last year's gift from Sony.
