GTHD confirmed for Euro PS3 launch

Downloadable racing update to hit our shores with 10 motors and online leaderboards

Following previous internet reports, Sony has confirmed that downloadable racing update Gran Turismo HD Concept will be available for the PlayStation 3's European launch next month.

The free one-track "glimpse" comes with the Swiss Alps course and ten drivable cars, including the Ferrari 599 - which we're told is the first time the Italian motor brand has appeared in Gran Turismo.

Another first for the series is the online ranking system, which lets you slug it out in the included time trial mode in an attempt to get your PlayStation Network handle at the top of the boards.

Look out for our impressions along with plenty of other PS3 coverage in the weeks running up to the March 23 launch.
