Well we had ordered & bought a NTSC/J version of GT4 from Palika when the PS2 had been newly introduced & the games were not available in copied form. If you want I could check if they have anymore available there next time I visit.

Just pre-ordered my copy of Gran Turismo 5 - Prologue on Bestbuy.com.

The "experience" releases in US on 16th April. I have opted for Express delivery(the sooner the better). It should be at my doorstep by 18th April.

Wow, good for you. How much did it cost?

BTW, does bestbuy.com ship products to India as well?

$54.08 including tax and express (2day) delivery.

I'm not sure about bestbuy.com shipping to India. I have to return my LCD tv in a day or 2. Will inquire at the store for you at that time.

Cheers

Doesn't it say "Expected release date - 28th March"?

Anyways, it should be a treat for all GT Fans once it is released, packed, couriered, received and popped into the PS3!!!

Congrats RPM. What is a prologue? Is it not a full game or is it just a demo of the actual game?

I see you got some games that i have recently started playing.

Assassins Creed: I just about started playing and stuck in the initial stages where he is in some dark house and i just not able to figure out how to get him out of that dungeon/dark house

Ratchet & Clank-TOD: I am absolutely smashed by this game, its one of the best

Motostorm: Got bored with this game already
