Gran Turismo 5 Prologue will apparently be a free download on the PlayStation Network when it is released. According to Yamauchi in a Gamespot Hands on, the game will be released as a free experience on the PSN later this year. We contacted SCEI, and they said
"Yes, it will be free for download on the PSN, and we are thinking of charging---but doubt it. For now it is free."
Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 5 promises to possibly be the most exacting and detailed racing video game ever. The Gran Turismo 5 Prologue gives you an online-enabled sampler of the GT5 experience. In the Prologue, will be dozens of different cars, and a few variety of environments to explore before the official games grand debut.

Well the plan was always originally to have two GTs one with all the cars installed and a downloadable version which required you to buy the cars. People innitially came out against the idea and micropayments that were going to be part of the plan, Mostly because they assumed you'd have to buy each and ever car and race track individually for far more than the cost of a full game. Now that people have had a chance to explore the concept of DLC for free or for fee they have a better idea of what to expect and add to the fact thet the innitial version will be free might make the concept of downloadable car/track patches for a small fee less horrific.

isn't Prologue just a pre-taste of the full GT5, nothing else (don't get me wrong, it's great). A litle bit more than a demo. Just to make people more waiting the full Gt5 ? anyway, can't wait for it..
