Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced that HD Concept will be available as free download (from the PlayStation Network) on March 23, to accompany the European PS3 launch. Gran Turismo HD Concept features ten super-hot cars with Ferrari making its Gran Turismo debut!

Players start with one car on the Eiger Nordwand track in the Swiss Alps. When the track is completed within the time limit, another car is unlocked. There are nine further cars to unlock in this way, including a Ferrari 599 – the first time a Ferrari has appeared in Gran Turismo. In another first, Gran Turismo HD Concept’s Time Trial will bring into effect the first Gran Turismo online rankings system. For the first time, players will be able to track who the best Gran Turismo driver is – and we expect a lot of dedication to be put in.

  1. Connect your PS3 to Broadband
  2. Follow the in pack instructions to sign up your PS3 on PlayStation Network
