Gran Turismo 5 Where Are You?

Yahoo writes: Sony has delayed the launch of its PlayStation 3 racing game, Gran Turismo 5, the release date once again left to conjecture. It's agonising for fans of the series, but you may be surprised to learn that this is the first time the game has been officially held back. (Gran Turismo 5, PS3)

How can Sony delay a game once more, yet it's the first time they delayed it?

i think it's a good thing coz GT5 needs to be the best

Bungie...oh Bungie. When will it end with you? This endless trolling needs to stop buddy. You need to be an actual gamer now. :)

I also agree that GT5 never had a release date to begin with as well.

GT never had a release date until the March release for Japan therefore this game has only been delayed ONCE and only in Japan. The rest of the world has never had a release date. Seriously, I'm tired of sites making up crap.
monkey602  +   1807d ago
The article says that it is the first actual delay for the game. It's even in the description without hitting the link. They are, in no way "making up crap"

It doesn't matter they delay it or not. When this game comes out first day buy for me.

I still got too finish playing GoW collections and UC2. Ohh mann so many games so little time. Work work work. :)
bruddahmanmatt  +   1807d ago
Those of us who grew up with GT are used to this by now. I can't remember GT ever coming anywhere close to hitting a projected release date. I don't even bother salivating over the next release anymore as I know I'll just be getting my hopes up. All I do is wait until a trusted source announces "got it" before heading down to the nearest game store to pick up a copy. lol.

This may sound like it's scraping the bottom of the barrel a bit...
...But I really don't care. For me, all this waiting has driven the excitement meter off the charts. I can't remember being this excited about something related to gaming since I anticipated the purchase of my PS3.

And I don't see the point in whining about release dates, when in the end those who truly care about the game will be playing it for FAR longer than what we waited for. But I suppose that doesn't matter to some people who are used to blowing $60 every couple of years on minor improvements. -.-

Anyway, nobody can't take this article serious when you see:

"Sony [HAS DELAYED] the launch of its PlayStation 3 racing game, Gran Turismo 5, [THE RELEASE DATE ONCE AGAIN]the left to conjecture

And

"It's agonising for fans of the series, but [YOU MAY BE SURPRISED*] to learn that [THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THE GAME HAS BEEN OFFICIALLY HELD BACK]

*Yes !DiøT!, I'm surprised to read that kind of [ILLOGICAL NONSENSE]

@Lt_Skittles
You need to learn to read. They are saying that the release date is once again left to conjecture. You are trying to defend GT5 against a quote that agrees with you. You fanboys are so quick to defend yourself even when your not being threatened.

P.s. Conjecture means they don't know when its coming out.

@Derkader

No, that's not what I am doing. I am pointing out the contradiction in the article, and I never heard PD, or Sony say 'GT 5 will be delayed to March 2010.' I am not a fanboy. I just thought 'the Sony has delayed the launch of its PlayStation 3 racing game, Gran Turismo 5, the release date once Again left to conjecture. You may be surprised to learn that this is the First time the game has been officially held back.'

Edit: thank you for vocabulary lesson.

Fishy Fingers  +   1807d ago
It is, but it's also safe to assume that will have a knock on effect for other region release dates, whatever they may have been. Either way, 5 years in the making, people want this game to be perfect, if PD think they need more time, let them have it I say. What's a month.

GT5 was always meant to come out in the west mid to late 2010. It was only Japan that was suppose to see it in March.

Before idiots claim the delay is for polishing. No. Its not. Its just a strategic move.

Here is the thing. Sony wanted to sell 13 million PS3 in this fiscal year which ends in march. As such they put GT5 in Japan only because GOW 3 is not that big in Japan. GOW3 will move alot more consoles in the west. However, Sony must have seen after December when they sold 3.8 million world wide that they don't really need to release GT5 in Japan in March to reach their target and save it for later in the year.

When Sony announced GT5 and GOW 3 in the same month in Japan i knew they were doing it to reach their sales target. Its the only logical explaination since both are huge hitters for Sony. Think about it. Why on earth would Sony want to release their biggest franchise and one of their biggest in the same month?.

@mrblacknut : When was that?. Sept 2009?. That was before the Slim success and December sales. Do you get the picture?.

That contradicts all the talk about Sony actually frustrated that GT5 hasn't already been released.
iceman06  +   1806d ago
The fiscal year bug...
pretty much hits a major title or two EVERY year. It's nothing new to the industry. It actually makes perfect business since for a company that has been taking a beating financially (mostly because of the unstable worldwide economy) to save a money printer like GT5 to include in the financial projections for 2010. Plus, being grown comes with the added characteristic of patience. My life doesn't revolve around a gaming release schedule. So, when it comes out...I'll be purchasing day one...until then...there's still a stack of games to finish...and new ones to purchase! GAME ON!!!
MaximusPrime  +   1807d ago
im from Europe.

Japan's delayed release date is news to me? i dont think so.
I do feel sorry for our Japanese PS3 fans but im sure there are many games to enjoy.

Anyway, within a week, we will see loads of sony-doomed articles trying to get approval on n4g. Whoever wrote these future article will be idiots.
Aclay  +   1807d ago
I really don't think that the Japanese GT5 delay is all that big of a deal and I doubt it's gonna mean that the U.S./E.U. version will get delayed further either.

A few weeks ago, Sony mentioned they were targeting a "Summer" release for GT5 in the West, and the 3 month Japan delay falls right in line with Summer, and like many have already said, I'm thinking a simultaneous worldwide launch.

Also, there was other Playstation exclusives like Yakuza 4, MGS: Peace Walker, and God of War 3 were already scheduled to come out in Japan for March too, just like GT5 was before the delay... GT5 coming out in March for Japan could've interfered with Yakuza 4 and MGS: Peace Walker's sales, or vice versa, so the delay makes perfect sense in that regard.

The 5 year development time for GT5 is the same as the first GT, and considering how ambitious this Racing Sim is in size and scale, and the fact that Polyphony started from SCRATCH with GT5, not just tweaking or modifying an already made game engine, the 5 year dev. time really isn't as long or bad as people make it out to be.

Bathyj  +   1807d ago
No, it doesn't surprise me at all.
People are just looking to find something wrong with GT, like all PS3 exclusives. Fantasy delays, are the best they can come up with. To be honest I dont know how you can accurately predict a release date on a project spanning so many years anyway.

I mean really, if you had lay a million bricks over 3 years, do you think you could pick the exact day you would be finished?

Anyway, I believe this is a scheduling move, nothing more. Too many AAA's too close together. Sony have made that mistake before, it seems they're learning. Other consoles dont have this problem.

Besides, I also believe this will mean a world wide launch now, itstead of Japan getting it first. How can that be bad? Unless your Japanese of course.

If the last 2 years have prooved anything, its that Sony Devs know what they're doing. Better than the media does anyway.

Bathyj  +   1807d ago
So you'd put 3 AAA's within a month of each other?

Look who I'm asking, you havent had 3 AAA's in the same year since "The Perfect Storm", remember that year, when Sony outsold you.

PS
I just went to read the Splinter Cell Delayed story so I could throw your comments back in youre face, but I see you were too scared to even show your face there. Most "gamers" seem to agree its a good move and the 3 months will give SC more time to itself and be less crowded.
You should try being a gamer sometimes, instead of just a troll.

It's attitudes from people like you that result in premature launches. It's part of the reason why the PS3 launched with a $600 price tag and it's the reason why it launched with hardly any games at all.

1. I never said it was YOUR fault. It's people with the same mindset.

2. I never said it wasn't PD's fault.

3. I'm saying that, unless you know why they're holding back, I suggest you don't whine or complain. We could get GT5 tomorrow with frame rate issues and a laggy online play (SOCOM, L4D2). If you're willing to wait, the best would come. We waited for MGS4, Uncharted 2, a low priced PS3 and an actually functional PSN. Hold your horses. PD won't disappoint.

Forza 3 realistic? I would question that because of the magic grass and gravel that is infuriating in two player and single player mode. When I say magic grass and gavel i mean the grass and gravel in some areas slow the car from 120mph+ down to 20mph (or there abouts) in about a second. Now if you call that real I dont know what you call GT5 (which I cant wait for)

I love to play Forza 3 to help me wait for GT5 but this magic grass and gravel detract from the rest of the realism in Forza 3. (I'm now waiting for the flood of disagrees from those in denial)

That's true that does happen in forza but you talk like Gran Turismo doesn't have something similar
Try taking a shortcut in Gran Turismo instead of the required turn and all of a sudden your car turns into a invisible ghost car and slows down while other cars drive by you and through you like you aren't there.
steve30x  +   1806d ago
@ps360owner09
That is true also but my post was in reply to the news article going on about Forza 3 being there and it being realistic. Also you are talking about GT5 Prologue. How do you know it will be in the final GT5? I do find that infuriating in GT5 Prologue also and theres no point in it in single player or split screen mode.

They should keep this sort of thing for online play to stop all those people crying because one person cut a corner where that other person could easily follow that poerson who cut a corner. I am almost fully sure this sort of thing was added because of people crying because some people cut corners and yet everybody has to suffer , including the people who go too fast into a corner and mess up our race completely as if it was'nt bad enough going off in the first place we get this kind of unrealistic crap.

By the way have you played the new GT5 Time Trial? The Prologue penalty system isnt in there. If you go off in the grass then the car slides realisticly but you dont get ghosted or slowed down.

I was just pointing out that both games have their flaws
I hope gt5 does remove that penalty system crap. Because in gt prologue I was in the single player mode when it happened to me I wasn't even doing multiplayer. And nope I haven't downloaded the time trail because I think I read it was only one car and one track so I figured their was no need to get it. Even though both forza and gt claim to be sim racers they feel totally different to me but I still enjoy both of them.
