Public Relations Manager Alex Armour has announced today that Gran Turismo 5 is preparing to team with Honda in a massive New York Times Square event, as follows:
Gran Turismo fans! If you're in New York this Thursday, we will be part of a major Honda event in the middle of Times Square to celebrate the launch of their CR-Z Sport Hybrid coupe.
In addition to tons of displays, interactive elements, and on-stage entertainment (N.E.R.D.!), we will have a number of racing sleds available for consumers to come by and play the latest build of Gran Turismo 5 in glorious stereoscopic 3D, featuring the all-new CR-Z.
Honda will have a huge 3D Spectacolor screen installed to show off their new "Eclipse" commercial in 3D (at 46th, between Broadway and 7th), and there will be a host of other 3D content that will be showcased at the event.
