Kevin Butler hints to Gran Turismo 5

In a new commercial dedicated to Mod Nation Racers released today, the hilarious Playstation face Kevin Butler, after trash talking and eventually getting owned by a gloating Jack Tretton, drops the following line: "That is if i'm not too busy with my next project: let's just say it's a little racing game that rhymes with Man Furismo Jive".

Just another hint to the fact that the announcement of a release date for the game is imminent.

E3 announcement I bet probably along with a new KB ad.

ChozenWoan2652d ago

Pure Awsome!!!

lol... VP of washing my car.

iPad2651d ago

Gotta love Kevin Butler.

All signs are pointing to a MASSIVE reveal and a firm release date.

I michael patcher that GT5 will have the largest marketing campaign in the history of playstation.

This is without a doubt, the single biggest and most important franchise to Sony. All of the EU will be buying this game by the millions, as will the rest of the world.

Just 1 month to go and we will finally see everything.

Tony-A2652d ago

No doubt about that. The frickin game sells like a shooter even today (GT5:P close to 5mil).

US and EU alternate with GTs. Sometime it's bigger in the US (GT3) and other times (most of the time), it's bigger in EU. Japan is where it's weakest and even there it sells over 2 million on most GTs.

I predict it'll beat out MGS4 as the top financially and maybe even Uncharted 2 in ratings. All Sony has to do is tell the public that GT5 is coming. That, coupled with the much larger install base than what MGS4 had to work with and they have a money-maker.

It's simple fact. The GT franchise is pure gold for Sony. It does for them what Halo does for Microsoft.

You guys are hopeless, we all know Forza 17 will outsell Gran Turismo 5!

sikbeta2652d ago

KB gave a Hint and is Coming Guys, The Unique GT5 is Coming

iPad2652d ago

Kazunori Yamauchi steps on E3 stage.

Crowd: AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH

Crowd chants: GT5 GT5 GT5 GT5 GT5 GT5 GT5 GT5!!!!!!!!

Sarcasm2652d ago

Too much hair gel says what?

Patrick2651d ago

I can so see these two hosting E3 together and taking swipes at each other for show just like they did here... DO IT SONY, MAKE IT HAPPEN.
Sony has struck gold here with these two. KB just has to be at E3 with JT.. lol.. He just has to.

aaron58292651d ago

Just what if....

Yamauchi steps on stage on E3 presentation, talks about the features, show off weather system, tracks, online modes... finally says..

"GT5 has gone gold.."

Too clever which makes it too funny!

Abriael2652d ago

yeah, it's the first time i see a commercial, or better, a character of a commercial, change the perception of a product THIS radically.

poindat2652d ago

Jack Tretton getting down on the advertising goodness... who woulda thunk it? I don't believe I've ever seen a CEO of other gaming companies star in such a hilarious commercial.

Just shows how down-to-earth Tretton is, and how great Sony's marketing and management figures are.

It's nice for a company to be more than just a shadowless figure.

Tony-A2651d ago

It's cuz he's from the great city of Boston ;)

We folks from MA have attitude, that's for sure!

Oner2651d ago (Edited 2651d ago )

I can't believe I just found out 1 thing I don't like about ol' Jack...he's a BOSTONER!?!? But I think I can MAYBE let him slide, though me being a born and raised New Yorker could make it a bit tough to do so...naaah Jack is alright in my book! I'll chalk him up to being a North Easterner (LoL). He is just so "genuine". Something you don't see/feel with other people of his stature/position.

DJexs2652d ago (Edited 2652d ago )

"Half man half horse half motorcycle all awesome"

kevin is the man

and this commercial is totally awesome.

tinybigman2652d ago

is like the coolest exec ever lol.

ClownBelt2652d ago

Pure win. Can't wait to get this game.

-Alpha2652d ago (Edited 2652d ago )

@Abriael

OK, nevermind, I get it.

Abriael2652d ago (Edited 2652d ago )

We know it's coming, but we don't know WHEN it's coming. There are plenty other sony games coming out, but he calls it his "next project". That's quite an hint.

You may have seen it as a joke, but marketing people very, very rarely crack jokes this evident without a purpose behind it. Expecially when they risk to raise expectations. Making people belive the most awaited game of the year is near (or even just putting in the smallest chance of them believing that) and then disappointing them, would be a quite massive marketing blunder.

"vague references" are allowed in marketing, but only if they actually lead to something. Making some that actually lead to nothing just for giggles' sake is a noobish mistake that I doubt the team behind KB would do, they're really too good.

LordMarius2652d ago (Edited 2652d ago )

yeah his next ad will be GT5, Im saying August/September

Edit: 1 bubble? for questioning RDR's resolution...sigh

ClownBelt2652d ago

Here's a bubble Marius.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2652d ago (Edited 2652d ago )

¿Still doubting about RDR Resolution?

Damn, better worry about the Multiplayer of RDR (and that goes for both consoles), because is supported, Powered by Gamespy, and that service is mediocre for consoles in my experience.

snipermk02651d ago

Here's another bubble for ya.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2652d ago (Edited 2652d ago )

''massively delayed''

GT5 was Delayed ONLY 1 TIME in Japan. Never was delayed 2 or more times. They cancel the release date for Japan. If someone disagree, please explain.

PS360PCROCKS2652d ago

No you're right alpha-male, it obviously isn't a hint. I mean geesh why would Sony have their spokesperson say at the end of a commercial "My next project man Furismo jive"?? That's nonsense, clearly a joke, cause you know ha ha ::nudge nudge:: it's not like their is millions waiting for an announcement or anything.

PS360PCROCKS2651d ago

Lol it's purely sarcasm man. I'm just giving you crap.

-Alpha2652d ago

I didn't see how it was a hint towards "A release date". Calm down, I was just asking.

waltercross2651d ago

Best time to mention a release date is at E3, and I have to admit, this video hints at GT5 at the end, so yes I think GT5 release date will be announced at E3 and maybe by KB!, Not to far fetched. :)
