Gran Turismo TV makes its debut with Friday’s update

Friday is going to be a good day for those of you who have been patiently waiting for Gran Turismo TV to finally make its way onto the PS3. If all goes as planned, you’ll be greeted with what Sony terms a “significant update” when you fire up Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

In layman’s terms, it will amount to an in-game automotive media channel that hopes to showcase an attractive offering of both free and pay-per-view programming, like Top Gear and Best Motoring. Personally, I’d settle for a complimentary subscription to MotorWeek and that highly anticipated damage modeling update they teased us with in the past, but I guess that this is still great news — considering that we are getting updates on Prologue to begin with.

So in other words, if automotive TV on the PS3 is your thing, get ready to crack open that special bottle of champagne you’ve secretly had stashed away for this special day. Or, do you plan on saving that celebration for the game’s full- featured release?
