Gran Turismo HD Concept updated to add worldwide ranking leaders; demo for Armored Core, trailer for GTAIV now available.

by

PlayStation 3 owners can now head over to the PlayStation Store and check out some new stock, as Sony has added three items to the online marketplace.

Now that the PS3 has launched in Europe, Sony is giving gamers across the globe the chance to prove they are the best at Gran Turismo HD Concept. A new update for the free demo adds global leaderboards, showing the top 10 worldwide rankings for each car and mode. The update also adds full force-feedback support for Logitech's Driving Force series of steering wheels.

Also available for download is a demo for Armored Core 4, From Software's mech-combat game. The sample features three single-player missions from the full game. Completing the trio of new items is a free HD trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV.

cky456 - who doesnt think that GTAIV is going to be amazing??? It is arguably having a lot more hype than HAlo 3, which is a pretty good achievement . i cant wait for it either, but for now were all going to have to settle with some pretty good games over the summer, like GRAW 2, rainbow six vegas and army of two, not to mention the big guns that arrive in september

well its a great game to play and i have to admit if this is a demo version then how well the real one be with better graphics and since that will be on a blue ray and that means it will covber lot of data and the full version will be a great game and will be with more cars and tracks and everything so wait for GT5 and yeah one more thing PS3 is worth every penny

Oh my god , shut up fanboys. the people who bash the other console that they dont have are are enviers If you like so much your PS3 or 360, why you dont enjoy your system, instead of bashin something that doesm't care you ore even you haven't see?

I think the PS3 is worth every penny. It's just majorly lacking in the software dept. and the hardware performance is overrated. Either way, you guys are funny. Gettin' all offended and stuff. Just take a side and have fun with the damn console wars, instead of "no! pleese don't argue bout video games!1!!!" Pfftt, get over it. Console wars and fanboys are gonna exist wether you complain about it or not. I personally think it's great fun to see giant companies battle it out for our money every 5 years. It's FUN you army of bringdowns.

why is there a constant bulling****in between sad fanboys. get a freakin life. let the companies argue an slate one another. gamers should stay out of it an be united. an nothing wrong with bein mature fugiot. its true, evryone has preferences an while the ps3 may be the more powerful console, that shouldnt be what influences people to buy a console - should be the games an each console has its own fair share of exclusives

@fugiot yea yea, go ahead and do wat your tryin to do coz i dont think its gonna work, lol

SPINweel Genocidal eugenics will always be an opinion-based(and morality-based) topic anyway. There will never be facts to prove if one train of thought is more correct than the other. The 360 and PS3 are MACHINES. Their efficiency can be determined through simple numbers. And yes, 360 is supreme at the moment. I also said that I will buy a PS3 because I know that it will have much to offer in the future. Either way, I don't care what machine is more powerful, because I think the Wii is the greatest system of the 3. I was just posting simple facts. Not opinions. 360 cpu is better at unpredictable game code PS3 cpu is better at decoding monotonous code such as hi-def h.264 streams.

A free HD demo for Grand theft auto IV sounds nice and its free.

fugiot just because you can find websites that support your claims, with so many sites just waiting to offer their opinion about the world, i could find several sites that support genocidal eugenics. that said, maybe you should revoke your 360 than thou attitude and let us take secret pity on those with a chip on their shoulder

Fugiot , that ign article is an analyzis made by Micro$oft. They heavily understated the ps3 capabilities , the semi- truth (From all the sources i read) is that the 360 has a better GPU (Graphics processor) and more ram ( The ps3 and 360 have 512MB , but the actual ram dedicated to games is less for the ps3) What does this mean, you will see better looking games for the 360 for now, and ps3 ports will less detailed graphics. The ps3 processor has a lot more potential but we wont see its true peformance in 2 years. Is also more difficult to program for than 360s. Basicaly you can expect superior ps3 titles in the future, but better 360 titles as of now.

Dareheaven: 1st party = a game developer that makes games for it's own console(like Sony or Nintendo) 2nd party = a developer that a 1st party owns, like Polyphony(owned by Sony) or Rare(owned by Microsoft) 3rd party = A game developer that makes games for whatever platform it wants to(like Sega, Capcom, and Namco)

Why use the word free in the article. A demo should be free as well as a trailer. If we have to start paying for previews of games then we have a problem.
