    Taken from the IGN Site

    January 11, 2008 - Sony announced way back in 2004 it was prepping a PSP version of Gran Turismo 4 for on-the-go racing. It was supposed to be an "exact replica" of the PlayStation 2 game. But we haven't received an update on the title since mid-2006, when series producer Kazunori Yamauchi told Famitsu that it was still on the way.

    It looks like Gran Turismo 4 Mobile may not ever cross the finish line, though, as an IGN staff member just received a call from GameStop bearing bad news. The retailer says pre-orders of the game have been cancelled -- because the game has been cancelled. By the vendor, apparently.

    As of this writing, Sony representatives could not be reached for comment. If the news is true we can't say we're entirely surprised. Four years is a long time for a direct port to be in development, and two years is an eternity to go without a status update.

    hmm, the greatest psp myth.
    They cant really just drop the franchise from the psp platform, can they? How much have they already spent on GTM development over the 4 years?
    I remember seeing the gran turismo umds in magazines pre launch, they must be out there somewhere.

    man, I've been waiting for that game for ever, I really hope they don't cancel the project, because I think this would be one of the top games on psp if they pull it off.:o

    that's retarded.
    gran turismo is one of the best racing games and it might be cancelled for the psp..
    hopefully we'll know the reason why..
