game release date for PS2:
"The "Gran Turismo Concept" offers almost 100 cars. Among them there are well known models from the previous part, but also a large number of completely new designs, or simply newer versions of well-known carts. Concept is not an addition, although it would deserve such a name. The new cars come from the fairs held in Tokyo, Geneva and Detroit in 2002. They include such interesting vehicles as Lotus Elise Type 72, Volkswagen W12, Mercedes SL55AMG, Audi abt TT, or Toyota Pod. The European edition of this game boasts the highest number of added cars (due to a later release). The most visible changes have taken place in the game system: this time we can only make licenses (but we will get for each one or two cars - depending on the result), and ride in a slightly changed arcade mode. You can forget about buying cars or changing parts. Even the car setup system has been simplified. The routes are well known to us, although there is one completely new one (Tokyo R246) and absent in the third part, but well known - Autumn Ring. The European edition is also more difficult than the American equivalent - that's a good thing, because the latter could be finished in one day (!), with the differences in the degree of difficulty of both versions relate mainly to the mode of obtaining the license. Generally, however, the game is short and this is its biggest drawback. However, you can definitely recommend it to those who love "Gran Turismo 3" and already have it in their possession.
