Summary: Gran Turismo 4 is the PlayStation 2 game we’re ALL waiting for. Unfortunately, it seems that we’ll have to wait a little longer than we had originally expected, as Gran Turismo 4 is now slated for a Summer 2004 release. We have some updated, high resolution images for your viewing pleasure. We also have some photos of Polyphony Digital working on real cars just to show that they’re not sitting around playing GT3 all day. Click-shift!
In our previous look at Gran Turismo 4, we were told that it would be coming this winter. While those hoping that it’d arrive in time to fit neatly under the Christmas tree were obviously delusional, it seems that those of us expecting it for the winter season are also a bit too optimistic. Our latest fact sheet now slates Gran Turismo 4 as a Summer 2004 release. Too bad… but to sooth the pain, we have some updated and/or high resolution images for your viewing pleasure.
Here are some images that you’ve seen before, but now at a resolution high enough to fill 1600 pixels across. (Be sure to click for the high-res version in our image viewer.)
SIDEBAR: The Italian Job is the coolest Mini Cooper commercial ever.
Grand Canyon Rally
SIDEBAR: Is it a Honda NSX or an Acura NSX?

SIDEBAR: The ATESSA ET-S AWD system from the Skyline will soon be available in the “Skylines” here, starting with the Infiniti G35x this December.
For better wheelism?
As detailed in our preview, Logitech will be launching a special steering wheel that offers 2.5 turns lock-to-lock with GT4’s release.
That’s all we have for now. You can bet this won’t be the last you’ll hear about Gran Turismo 4 in the coming months. Hopefully a firmer release date will be announced soon. Knowing Polyphony Digital, if GT4 slips beyond Summer 2004, then it could run the risk of being further postponed to be a PlayStation 3 launch title. Maybe history will repeat itself in a similar fashion to the GT2/3 and PSone/PS2 transition.
