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.

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.

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!

Just in time for release of the PS4, and Forza 3.

xhi43248d ago

the weather effects and damage system will be in place!

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?

kwicksandz3248d ago

Home and GT5 in one year =P

PirateThom3248d ago

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 :)

whoelse3248d ago

PS3 owns 2009:

God of War 3, Heavy Rain, Ratchet and Clank, Uncharted 2?, New incognito game?, GT5?, Killzone 2

Killjoy30003248d ago (Edited 3248d ago )

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.

Yea its safe to expect this in Summer or spring of 2010.

Gondee3247d ago

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.

Danja3247d ago

if it's released in EU next Christmas...I can see a spring release for this game in NA which would be perfect timing...

Sitdown3247d ago

Can you please post links confirming all those games for 2009.

TapiocaMilkTea3247d ago

What is the deal? Why take so long? They already had the prologue out?

season0073247d ago

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...

peksi3247d ago

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.

SuperM3248d ago

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.

Cartesian3D3248d ago

they said "sooner than expected" before .. so it makes sense ..

anyway I hope to see it in 09 Xmas for all regions ..

Alvadr3248d ago

Xmas 2009 is gonna be awesome. Heavy Rain, FFXIII (maybe), GodOW 3, GT5

TrooGamer3248d ago

Got a feeling this may be a worldwide release. I hope anyway

Marquis_de_Sade3248d ago

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.
