Gran Turismo HD isn't strictly a new outing for Sony's flagship racing series, just a hi-def version of Gran Turismo 4 - but one look at these new screens is enough to reignite our interest and have us fantasizing about thrashing out high-speed circuits of Laguna Seca while our eyes are caressed by the super-sharp high definition visuals.
The series has always looked good but hi-def will bring a new level of fetishistic obsession to Gran Turismo when it launches next year. With luck it'll also come packaged with a full online multiplayer mode; something Sony has been promising since Gran Turismo 3. Expect to see more GT HD in the near future.
