The Gran Turismo video game franchise for Playstation celebrates its 10th anniversary this year. For the racing game itself, its appearance back in 1998 all but changed the face of the racing world enabling gamers to get as close as possible to driving the four-wheeled beasts of their dreams. The car-reproduction within the game undergoes some mind-numbing detail to replicate the most authentic experience possible with elements of exhaust notes and minute details all undergoing intense scrutiny. To mark the decade anniversary, jeffstaple and company are hosting Downshift Session 2008 on Thursday as not only a celebration of Gran Turismo itself but also automotive design, music, art and gaming. The entertainment for the evening includes Eric Haze, Kid Sister & DJ Soul and the opportunity to race in live time trials. The VIP event will take place from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm with the doors opening for +21 general admission at 8:00 pm.
