The "Prologue" suffix is a self-reference to Gran Turismo 4 Prologue , which was released one year before the full version of Gran Turismo 4. The game has sold 5. An upgraded version,  dubbed Spec II , is also available as a patch for the original version. This game introduced the ability to race with up to 16 cars at once to the Gran Turismo series. New to the series is the realistic in-car view feature. It includes functioning speedometers , odometers , reflecting rear-view mirrors , wing mirrors and real-time in-car lighting effects, such as shadows.
Quantum Break , BioShock and Braid aren't the only games contending with time. Sooner or later, every cartridge, cassette, CD or UMD must give up the ghost, pack its bags and ascend to the heavenly halls of fame — or instead plummet into shovelware hell. For some titles, this end is closer than most. Online features are often the first casualties of any generational jump, and so it's proving to be on the PlayStation 3 - at least where some of the system's best-loved games are concerned. Having successfully launched the PS4 earlier this year , Sony now appears to be in the process of reclaiming some much-needed server space, discontinuing the online components from a handful of older titles. First up for the chop is none other than Resistance , a solid first-person shooter series that culminated in 's Resistance 3 the series would later re-appear in the form of underwhelming Vita-exclusive Burning Skies. Interestingly, the franchise was only just re-released as a trilogy box-set late last year , meaning that anyone hoping to pick up the triple-pack of the cheap should consider buying in prior to the impending cut-off.
All online features including online multiplayer modes will cease on that date. You will still be able to play and enjoy these games in single player offline modes. However, the games have significant amounts of online gameplay, so from 31st March , functionality will be affected in the following ways:. Multiplayer and all online features for StarBlood Arena will be terminated and will no longer be available on 25th July As you have to be online to play this title, this game will not be playable from that date.
The best-selling games are frequently subject to annual instalments which aim to provide new features and experiences. Yet while the games industry is constantly moving and changing, the games themselves provide a kind of fixed point for their fans. Just as settlers built villages and towns on the banks of rivers in times past, players often become attached to their favourite games, and form communities around them. The decision to cease support for Gran Turismo 5, however, is slightly bewildering. This is, after all, a game that is only just over three years old - not exactly new, but hardly obsolete, either. While it seems logical that Sony and developer Polyphony Digital would want to focus more of its energies on the recently-released GT6 , it seems somewhat disingenuous to essentially abandon a game with an active and vibrant fan community.
On 28th March all three Resistance games on PlayStation 3 will lose their online features. If you fancy one last bash at Resistance: Fall Of Man multiplayer then best do it quick. Four days earlier on 20th March, Gran Turismo 5 will lose all online functions, which seems rather soon after the release of GT6. Source: Sony. Shame to hear about MAG as only 2 weeks ago we were saying on the Best of this generation that it was something new and never seen before. GT and Resistance i can totally see the reasons for doing this. Oh well.
