This is the best deal out there as far as I know. Besides the Amazon individual codes anyway...

EDIT:
5% off coupon lowers it to $34.83 which makes it better than the Amazon deal!
Thanks Vcize!

Amazon Code = $35 and (since i have amazon prime) free shipping in two days. Don't think many people will jump on this, but i've been wrong before.

EDIT: Nope, i'm always right.

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

This is pretty good if you can't get your hands on a code.

Hmm well I guess $36.99 is a much better deal for a demo than $39.99.

I don't know if familyvideo.com allows coupon with preorders but GT prologue is 37.99 with .99 shipping and they usually have $5 off floating around on the net for new members which I believe is just creating a new email address. Haven't tried it myself though. Plus some people have said their shipping can be slow

Gotta love the good old GCO (which sometimes you can get away doing it more than once)

Well, being in a taxable state, the Buy.com price is probably my best deal. Told a buddy about it at work today, and he pre-ordered the game without even OWNING a PS3. (So selling him my 2nd one, and playing online together should be a gimmee. :) )

I'd say the OP is awesome! :)

Take your goddamn sarcasm elsewhere. ;) And it's 36.66 so...so, there! Seriously tho, it's a new release and a few dollars' savings is always nice for a new release.

Define what you consider a demo? To me, a demo is something I get 45 minutes or an hour of play out of (if that due to the fact that a majority of them suck) if I'm lucky.

GT5 Prologue on the other hand is a game I can see myself playing over and over again. I'm not even into online play that much, and I still think $34.99 (with the $5 off Amazon.com code) is more than worth it for just the single player element of the game.

Now if I get 5-10 hours of play out of the game, and nothing more, than I will admit "it's a demo". Otherwise, it's worth every penny, and will by far be the most superior graphics I've ever seen in a video game (I've said the exact same thing with GT 3 and GT 4 on PS2).

Awesome. I'm going to wait two more days and see if they allow the Google Checkout discount on top of this stuff. It'd make it $24.83 shipped...

Well, i consider anything that isn't the full game, a demo, even though this is longer than most demos.

I see your point. This game is 40%-50% of the full game, and can be viewed as an attempt by Polyphony Digital to cash in twice on the very same game. However, they've said that it'll be at least a year until Gran Turismo 5 comes out.

Also, I think they'll continue to allow those of us who've bought Prologue to continue playing online with those who wait to buy the full version of the game (though obviously we won't be able to play all the courses).

Depending on how much more we'll actually get for another $60 investment (and it's safe to say at least 20% or more of the people who buy Prologue will also buy GT 5), I may not buy the full version of the game. I own every version of Gran Turismo, and find myself interested in the games for a good 20 hours or so. Because of that, I may not even want to buy the "full" version of the game.

Another reason I hope the "demo" (as you put it) does extremely well (which it will) is because it'll send a message to the game developers. $35 or $40 is a price we're willing to pay as a consumer. $60 is too much money for a game, regardless of the amount of time that games provides us. Hopefully Sony will put two and two together when Prologue outsells GT 5 3 or 4 to 1.

Thanks OP. In for one. If I don't care for it, I am only out under $30. I am sure I can get my monies back.

But now I'm ready for D/P, excited and terrified. It's going to eat so many hours of my life.
