Gran Designs - Day Five: Gran Turismo HD

Sony goes stark-raving mad and gives away its best game

Well, thiswasan unexpected surprise. Sonygenerously decided to hand out a completely free, ten-car and one track teaserdemoof Gran Turismo HD to any PS3 owners who wantsit. Granted, this isn't GT 5 - it's just an enhanced version of GT 4 - but we'll take it.

Your prize for waiting for 650MB to download is a clearly beautiful race game that, and we%26rsquo;re not exaggerating, looks streets ahead of anything else available. The cars are fantastic models and they look incredibly sharp. There are no jagged edges here, nor are the crowds that watch you race flat. The spectators are rounded individuals, all 3D and huddled together in groups, pacing around, waving and setting off their camera flashes when you approach - they look stunning.
