I think this is pretty good news, polyphony is stopping GTHD and focusing on the true sequel, GT5. A free Concept of GTHD will be made available on december 24th (on the playstation store).

Press release here:

Kazunori says this wont be the first of the free concept downloads available, more will come before the release of GT5. :D

edit:

As a side note, and a interesting fact...a very similar thing happened to GT2000 & GT3.

seems like sony is doing damage control :p more like Sony/PD is doing the smart thing and putting more focus on the "real" sequel and not the "prologue". This isnt the first time this happened. The end results were much better than what we would of gotten. But feel free to spin this as a negative if you like. This is all positive imo.

I was actually really looking forward to GTHD being that I missed out on 4. Hopefully this will be out before late 2008.

That's just great. Now I have no reason to even buy a PS3 coming this spring/whenever GT:HD was gonna come out. :thumbdwn:

Unless F1 2006 for PS3 is like a super awesome racing simulation experience, it looks like I won't be getting a PS3 anytime soon. :(

Well they did say there will be a demo/concept download in december, with others to follow.

Pretty good move I think. A lot of people were talking bad about the whole multi-transaction thing in GT: HD. Not to mention Forza 2 would probably be out around the time of GT: HD.

Why the sad faces? You're saving 5-600$! And when the games that you do want to buy comes out, the ps3 will be cheaper! ;)

You knew something was brewing when they demoted Kutaragi. But dam i would of enjoyed playing some of this in higher rez and no jaggies, well just going to make do with other racing games than , no big loss since it was just a port and now we can wait to more delays for gt5.

I seriously have no idea wtf is wrong with some of you people.
Even good news like this is made to be slanted.
Sony is giving a fully playable version free.
Gran Turismo HD Concept content:
* 10 cars
* 1 Course, 2 layouts
* Time Attack and Drift Trial modes
* Network ranking

And now focus is being put on GT5 where it should be.
This is a step in the right direction for Sony and hopefully means that they are finally taking things seriously.

A fully playable version free? You make it sound like Sony is giving away a free game. The content you describe sounds similar to that found in any free game demo.

Which means nothing. You can register a japanese ID in 3 minutes.
I already have to download a couple things not available in NA.
