Gran Turismo 4 to hit UK in May

Well, the previously Japan-only GT4 Prologue demo will anyway

After Sony Europe originally , the company has just confirmed that the demo version of GT4 will reach these shores at the end of May.

Originally released in Japan in December in a bid to tide gamers over until the release of GT4 proper, the demo includes four tracks from the full game: Tsukuba circuit, Fuji speedway, Italian urban district and the Grand Canyon.

In addition, the PAL version is also said to include a host of bonus features that weren't included in the original Japanese release, such as a message from GT creator Kazunori Yamauchi and a 'Making of GT4' DVD. The package is expected to retail at a budget price.

GT4 Prologue is due for release at the end of May while the full version of the game is now expected to hit shelves in the autumn
