Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced today the North American release of Gran Turismo HD Concept, as a free download on the PS3's PlayStation Network starting December 24th.

Originally planned as a full network release that would ship without cars or tracks, which could be later bought individually through microtransactions, those plans were scrapped in the beginning of December.

An online message from designer Kazunori Yamauchi indicated at the time that instead the Gran Turismo HD: Classic element of the game will be made available free for download, for a limited time, on Christmas Eve. The game includes ten cars and one track.

Developed by Polyphony Digital Inc, Gran Turismo HD Concept features an all-new course for players to be featuring a Ferrari, as well cars from nine other worldwide manufacturers that include Infiniti, Lotus, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Suzuki.

"Gran Turismo HD Concept provides PS3 and automotive fans a glimpse into the future of Gran Turismo," states Kazunori Yamauchi, famed creator of the Gran Turismo franchise. "With the power of the PS3 technology, the world of Gran Turismo is refined by its full HD visual presentation and unique interactive experience, resulting in an even more realistic and true driving simulator."
