There are no casual Gran Turismo "fans". There are people who hate the series, avoiding it at all costs, and there are others who adore it, and would set their teeth on fire while kneeing themselves in their own balls if the game's license tests demanded it of them. They're that into it. If you're part of the latter camp, you may be interested in these, a GT5: Prologue soundtrack and an adorable little GT5 toy car.
The soundtrack will be available on February 20, and will be going for ¥2200 ($US 20). No idea what the complete tracklist is, but you can bet the cruisey menu music will be taking centre stage.
As for the car, it's a 2001 GT-R concept. It's 1/18 scale, super-detailed (with little seat-belts and everything!) and with little Gran Turismo decals all over it is just irresistible. All that miniaturisation comes at a cost, though, as it'll set you back ¥9000 (USD$85).
