Sony's chief executive in southern Europe, James Armstrong, revealed in a statement to Spanish newspaper El Financiero that we can expect the game to arrive (in Europe, at least) Christmas 2009.
So... Summer 2010 then?
No... Christmas 2010. Maybe.
Nah summer/spring 2010 is a more accurate estimate. GT is more of a spring or summer game to me anyway. I honestly don't mind delay as long as it blows minds when it releases sort of like KZ2 is doing
2009:year of the ps3... lol... erm to be honest it will most likely be 2010 spring, japan might get a version during chrismas.
Still waiting on Gran Turismo PSP...
GT5 Prologue SUCKED!! Why did it suck? Because it was like licking the spoon after making cookie dough - the cookie dough is so damn good and it makes you want the cookies so bad but you have to wait for what seems like an eternity. That's how GT5 Prologue is, it's just a small taste of what's yet to come and it makes you want the finished product even more! Damn I can't wait til GT5! I want it now...now, now, NOW!
Just in time for release of the PS4, and Forza 3.
the weather effects and damage system will be in place! woooo!
GT are always ontime, and its the most real and Graphical Racing game made, They even designed the GUI on the computer of the Nissan GTR... Why the hate?
Home and GT5 in one year =P
I'm not hating, but Gran Turismo games are notorious for delays. The attention to detail and boundary pushing graphics come at a price.
Home is definetly coming out by christmas day. But if it doesnt, i dont care, im already home :)
PS3 owns 2009: God of War 3, Heavy Rain, Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted 2?, New incognito game?, GT5?, Killzone 2
Think about it. GT3 and God of War 3 pull some tag team pwnage next Christmas. Meanwhile, the next Ratchet game and Uncharted 2 would help out. Man, that would be amazing.
JUST IMPORT IT!! ITS NOT REGION BLOCKED!
Yea its safe to expect this in Summer or spring of 2010.
for Christ's sake, thats to long, ill be in college, and games wont matter =( This Home is really pissing me off, i just want it now. not a year from now.
if it's released in EU next Christmas...I can see a spring release for this game in NA which would be perfect timing...
Can you please post links confirming all those games for 2009.
What is the deal? Why take so long? They already had the prologue out?
they already have the engine running and it looks and runs REALLY good... They just have to add damage to it and cars and tracks data along with different modes and thats probably it.. and it will still take an year... makes you wonder...
If there was a chance to make a bet I'd place a little sum for this Christmas 2008. There was no direct quote to 2009 was there? Earlier this year game maker of GT stated that the game will arrive sooner than you think so a big Christmas surprise from Sony wouldn't be out of the question.
Apart from 3, the games have all launched in December in Japan, with NA and EU shortly after in Spring. If it's Christmas 2009, it'll be Japan.
Wow, you speak of it as if its a fact. The guy said it will release in europe christmas 2009. Maybe it will get delayed and maybe not, but if the game is ready for release in europe christmas 09 then they will release it. And from how they are talking about it, it probably will.
they said "sooner than expected" before .. so it makes sense .. anyway I hope to see it in 09 Xmas for all regions ..
Xmas 2009 is gonna be awesome. Heavy Rain, FFXIII (maybe), GodOW 3, GT5
....when i see it.
Got a feeling this may be a worldwide release. I hope anyway
I hope so, I wasn't aware that as a European PS3 owner I accepted 2nd class treatment, late game releases, higher prices and less PSN content.
Atleast the logitech g25 will be cheaper by then.
Well since the interview took place in EU, and they always get their games last, I would think it would be 2009 in NA but later for EU, even though they would be all over the game more than NA would be.
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue was released in Europe before USA. Get you facts straight. EU release:03/28/08 US release:04/15/08
^^^ dude relax in here, first of all its just a thought second if one game got released first in the EU that doesn't change the fact, a lot of big Sony hits released in the US first too. Socom, Res. 2, LBP....
This is poor timing for GT5, Forza 3 will undoubtedly be released next year to critical acclaim, making the Gran Turismo series look like the tired, old and beaten horse it has become. It's time to put this horse down.
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue disc sales - 2m (does not include downloads) Forza 2 - 2.2m Not to mention, Forza has been out longer on a console with a bigger install base and GT5P is a "demo". Poor timing for Forza 3 more like, the ONLY driving similulator will be back to its fully charged, Perfect Cell form. They better delay Forza 3 until 2011 or else it will be released to sheer indifference, like the last 2.
I think you don't know what game you are talking about just so I would remind you, you are talking about GT5 GT5P Was amazing, I just can't wait to see GT5
GT5p only sold because there weren't enough good games on the PS3 at that time when it released. There was no game on or over a 9 out of 10 at that time. No MGS4 or LBP. So I am pretty surprised it sold just 2 mln. GT5 the real version is added to the list of PS3 vaporware.
Zhuk: please don't make people laugh at you. and stop comparing a deer (forza) to a lion (GT), just please. edit: you as well Mart, save yourself from humiliation.
Mart - It sold about the same as GT4P. Are you telling me the PS2 had no good games when GT4P was released?
Tommie tell me: How many PS2's were out there when GT4p released How many PS3's were out there when GT5p released I bet when GT4p came to Europe in 2004 there were a lot more PS2's out there 4 years after its release then the PS3 had sold when GT5p came. Thus, larger install base, obiviously means even with more games out a mediocre game/demo sells. So no with the PS2 probably GT4p didn't have the boost in sales because there were no other good games. With GT5p it certainly was the case. I mean heck, the PS3 was bundeled with that demo at the end of 2007 I can remember. I was standing in a shop and saw the bundle pack, I was checking out the games and though... Damn Sony doesn't have more to sell the PS3 with then a demo? There you have the lack of games and the users needed to play something at that time.
Zhuk lol at you, you are worst than MART, and that isn't something to be proud of. You fai. You fail BIG time, almost as much as the 360 failes to deliver a true next-gen gaming experience. GT5 will own every other driving game, past and present and future, up until GT6 is released for the PS4. Forza 3 will fail, just like you failed the sixth grade this year. Get ready bots, you're going to be OWNED
MART ease it up buddy... you know very well GT5 will sell no less than 8 million copies... the "Prologue" model has worked the same way for a while now...
Critical acclaim? Don't make me laugh please. First the statistics from FailDaily and now this? Gran Turismo is a critically acclaimed racer. No. And here comes Mart. Easy there rabid wolverine.
I reckon Mart is a coward. He had to run to his PoG account to hit disagree instead of proving me wrong. :)
Mart, you know very well that the GT series are the most sold and highest rated recing simulator games ever made. To see you this jelaous only makes us happy.
excellent timing for another round of public punishment from the masters! GT5P already makes forza23 look like a ps2 game, now i can't wait for the full game to add weather to injury, lol zhuk, you're so good at being a douche... "New achievement unlocked!"
how can you even compare forza with gt5 ?? ha ? r u phackin retarted ? or just ... retarted ?
GT5 to Forza 2 is like comparing a Steak to a hamburger. Really no comparison. Compare Forza 2 to Ridge Racer or NFS, which is more it's level.
BAHAHAHAAHAHAH OMG YOU ARE THE SINGLE MOST RETARDED PERSON ON THIS PLANET! GT3 and GT4, were both amazing games and i can't WAIT to play GT5. Forza will be left on the shelves.
several of the most idiotic 360 fanatics on earth can be found in this thread... do you guys hear yourselves?...GT5 will fail because there are finally great games on the PS3 now?...we seriously should tie you guys up and throw bricks at you... forza 3...seriously gtfo...when forza 2 gets crapped on by a PS2 game (GT4 and GT:HD...even the PS2 could run GT4 in 1080i with component cables)...you know something is up...when a last generation gran turismo game looks better than a current gen forza...you should probably stop bringing that franchise up in discussions...
Looking good. GT5 is actually our "proper" blockbuster. When I say proper and mean it sells 10's of millions on each release. The franchise is too strong.
All they need to do is look at the sales figures, it is sonys biggest selling franchise, and it is one of the biggest selling franchises. Each game has sold around 10million and the franchise as a whole is just over 50million.
I disagree, GT5P has done 2.3 million to date and that is with bundles & a low price tag. I can not see GT5 doing much better unless they include crash damage & weather conditions etc. to give current GT5P users to a reason to buy the game again at a higher price.
is a prologue and most people consider it a teaser for GT5. If you want to compare a teaser to a teaser, look at GT4P which sold around 1.36 Million. Now if you look at GT5P, its actually doing pretty good for a teaser of the final game.I'm actually surprised that it got to 2 Million when considered by many people a demo of sorts.
Wow oh wow!!! Perfect time to release the game in Europe. Hopefully there will be some other strong third party titles in December and PS3 sales could easily skyrocket!!!
It will probably get delayed, but I don't care. This game is one of the reasons why I bought a PS3, so I can deal with some delays if it means a greater experience. I know the game will pwn all once it comes out, so here's hoping that Polyphony can get this right. PD FTMFW!
\ how da heck u put exclusive out with no voice chat ??????? wtf are u kidding me online wack!!! nice looking but waste of money REGREt day 1 purchase lol !!!
What the f*ck are you talking about? Since when do you need voice chat in a racing game? It's not like you're rallying with a friend, or communicating with a pit crew that your friend is in. Seriously? That's the reason you dislike this game? I feel bad for you...
thereaperson, thats not the point, all online games should come with chat as standard, especially a 1st party title. Back in the PGR2 days i made a lot of friends on Xbox LIVE and a bit of friendly banter during a race can make it a great laugh.
That's still a dumb reason to bash the game itself. For features outside of the game that you enjoy, you should look at them separately.
I couldn't of cared less if they didn't even put in online modes. For me, GT is about playing the game with a proper force feedback wheel with a proper gear box and clutch.
I am not bashing the game at all. I think the fact I have owned an Xbox console for 6 years has left me expecting built in voice chat to games. Racing game or not, it's a relatively basic feature that should be included in all multiplayer games in this day and age. Sure you can argue its a feature outside of the core gameplay, but online games with no banter are boring and I feel the addition of voice chat would only add to the game and the experience as a whole.
Dam, guess Playstation gamers like to play in silence. Do people realise it's not a bad thing to want the best possible in a game rather than settle for second best? Whats the problem with having chat? If you don't like it just turn it off, personally I enjoy having a laugh with mates as I leave them in the dust ;). Multiplayer is a social experience and voice chat is an integral part of that experience.
write another smutty tale and i'll give you a bubble :), damn that french revolution!!!
Yeah.... I absolutely LOVE to here 9 year olds and weed head while I play. SOCOM cross comm is fine so far. HOME comm. is atrocious. Sexist, Racist,.. just amazing.
damn there's a long way to go
That sure is way too long a wait... as long as it's got damage-mode plus weather-sim feature, heaps of tarmac/dirt/snow tracks and gazillions of cars and concepts I would'nt mind.
That's also the reason why it hasn't had damage in the past, including GT5:P. Car manufacturers really don't want their cars being smashed up in a virtual representation. High-profile companies usually use the game as a showpiece for new models, including how they drive. It's good advertising for them.
omg .. what the eff is wrong with Sony? i feel really sorry for PS3 fans.
