Gran Turismo 5 "Most Anticipated Game of The Decade" Says Sony. Really?

It is hard to believe that after years of development and teasing, Sony comes out and calls Gran Turismo 5 the “Most Anticipated Game of the Decade”. While most may disagree that it’s not, many new gamers may not even know or remember what Gran Turismo is.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well, if were talking about worldwide, then yea. I think GT5 could certainly be the most anticipated game of the decade by the most gamers around the globe.

@Blaze- I'm guessin they use surveys/polls. And they probably look at which of their franchises have sold the most on a global scale. With the GT franchise being a sales monster and the long delay...its pretty much assumed that its the most anticipated game of the decade.

AridSpider2958d ago

that's because it takes them a decade to make it!


lol but seriously, they are probably right.

On a side note, Dr Dre's Detox album is the most anticipated rap album of the decade because he keeps freakin delaying it! GT5...ZING

LOL at the comments...GT is a great franchise and will sell well when it releases..having said that, the racing community has changed with many great racing games in the market place.

Recently I saw some racing footage from looks incredible. Not a car sim guy but I can appreciate the great graphics...Chk out FI, the weather effects are awesome. 3D will have a negative effect on GT. It requires a DROP in resolution.

Gran Turismo 5 is crown jewel of Playstation 3. Many people will feel completed or purpose of their life figured out once they will know the release date of GT5. Im one of em.

One the biggest problem I had playin GT games on normal LCD tele was that I wasnt able to judge the distance accurately for turning around tight corners and for reason car always used to crash into obstacles. Dashboard cam did help but not convinced.

But now as 3D is avaialble ... I will get the same feelin of driving as Im driving on real road cuz I'll know exactly how much amount of brake I have to apply for tight corners to make proper accident free turn.

This game has got all the rights now to be called DEFINITIVE REAL DRIVING SIMULATION ... Thanks to 3D from Playstation 3.

InfectedDK2958d ago

GT5 IS the "Most Anticipated Game of The Decade" - Well atleast for me!

DaTruth2958d ago

People will literally buy a PS3 just for GT5 and never buy a game again!

I wouldn't be surprised if Sony held back the game knowing they would take a loss on people buying PS3's and only one game!

bnaked2958d ago

The most GT-fans are just motorsport or car fans.. You will never find them here on N4G or wherever..

sikbeta2958d ago (Edited 2958d ago )

Shut Up cez, The Gran Turismo Series have Fans All Over The World, The Franchise is So Big, There are People that Only Buy PS Consoles Only For The GT Series, say whatever you want but You Can't change anything dude, DEAL WITH IT....

Its my most anticipated game. Also, its the reason i bought a PS3 in the first place :-)

LoaMcLoa2958d ago

Really? It's just a racingsimulator. Games are supposed to be original and to experience things you can't do in real life. Gran Turismo will be fun, sure. But it's not even close to be one of the most anticipated games of the decade.

Chuck Norris2958d ago


"It's just a racingsimulator."

It's not just a racing simulator; it's THE racing simulator.

"Games are supposed to be original and to experience things you can't do in real life."

Exactly. Have you driven around Nurburgring in a $400,000+ supercar? I don't think so.

Microsoft Xbox 3602957d ago (Edited 2957d ago )

Same can be said to about any game.

"Really? It's just another shooter."

And yes Chuck Norris is right. You"d have a better chance shooting an alien in real life before driving a half a million dollar machine on the Nurburgring. Lol

Hanif-8762958d ago (Edited 2958d ago )

If PS3 "newcomers" don't want to know what it feels like going 253.5MPH in a Bugatti Veyron that they'll probably never get to drive. Then why not experience it in the most realistic driving game in both graphics and physics? If not then you'll be missing out on something HUGE!

Rainstorm812958d ago

The delays make it anticipated......If it came out back when prologue came out this title would be ridiculous.

NO game this popular has taken this long to release the wait has been hell........Sony...PD....a solid date better be at E3.

Danja2958d ago

For Some people it maybe this is a very subjective topic ... This is one of my most anticipated games but its my most anticipated racer....

JsonHenry2958d ago

I don't think so. StarCraft 2 is the most anticipated game of the decade. Assuming you are talking about world-wide interest.

Narutone662958d ago

takes twice as long as GT5 to develop. Want me to go on?

UltimateIdiot9112957d ago

And one of the largest interest is generated by Korea who practically made SC a national sport.

Cold 20002958d ago (Edited 2958d ago )

Of course Sony would say such a thing.

I for one dont believe that at all. One of the most anticipated this gen ? I agree. THE MOST anticipated this decade...? Come on lets stay a little down to earth here.

wazzim2958d ago

ofcourse a couple of million are waiting for this one but what about all the other games? FFXIII, Halo 3, DQ9, GT4 etc. those were very popular and heavily anticipated. Maybe they are talking about 2010-2020.

ProjectVulcan2958d ago (Edited 2958d ago )

Naturally the delay and length of development time is frustrating. For many of the fans the wait is excruciating. As a fan myself i have moments where i lose faith a little, where i think, WHY isnt it here yet? Im getting irritated.

But then i see a new trailer, some new shots, and realise how this is going to be soooooooo worth the wait and my faith is restored. As long as sony keep their promises, GT5 is less than six months away. I already waited five years, another six months will be the blink of an eye and can make the difference between a good game and a truly epic title.

Most anticipated game for me? Without question.

"Gran Turismo 5 "Most Anticipated Game of The Decade" Says Sony. Really?"

NO... not really. Personally I'm not into driving simulators. Games like GT5 or Forza 3 are not my cup of tea. This game will sell well... no doubt about it, but the major factor why it will do very good, is because it's going to be bundled with every PS3 at time of the launch... just like Forza 3 was.

When publishers want to talk about sales... they should not include the bundled sales, because the game is not bought, it's offered with the console.It's the same thing to say Wii Sportes sold 60-70 millions copies, but the game is bundled with every Wii.

I'm more interested in Motorstorm 3.

UltimateIdiot9112957d ago

Well, you can't deny the fact that a lot of people are buying a PS3 just for GT5. Heck, I know someone who I tried to convince to get a PS3 but said he'll only get it once GT5 comes out and the G27 with it.

hennessey862958d ago

ud think people would have learned there lesson from gt4 yes gt5 will have nice graphics yes it will have lots of cars but gt4 was boring as hell and i hope gt5 doesnt disapoint because sinse gt3 a spec the series has been in decline and forza 3 is the new king its got nothing to do with sales or which looks shinier forza is a fun game to play and isnt that the point to have fun

juniordee2957d ago

1) Ever heard of grammar and punctuation?

2) GT4 was easily one of the greatest PS2 games ever made. It IS the game I played the most on PS3, by far. And it will be the same with GT5. I've been waiting for GT5 ever since GT4 came out because I was thinking "I can't imagine how this game can get any better", and not because it was boring. It was one of the funnest game ever, IMO.

hennessey862957d ago

so are you saying i cant have mine. i think gt3 is still the best gt game ever and by the way its not an english test if i cud be arsed i would use "punctuation and grammer" but who gives a fuck

MNicholas2957d ago

The writer claims that modern PS3 gamers aren't familiar with Gran Turismo.

TROLL EATER2957d ago (Edited 2957d ago )

due to it supposed to have come out years ago perhaps.

i'd like to know where these publishers get this info from or do they just give their games that title? Geoff Keighley says biggest game of 2010 for Halo Reach then Microsoft and everyone just runs with it. Biggest game according to who and what?

Most anticipated according to who/what? Not saying they are wrong - could care less - I'm just interested to see where these data reports surface from. I mean, the decade? Freakin decade? I dunno about that. This year? No doubt. Last year? No doubt. But decade? Who knows.

AridSpider2958d ago

that's actually a good question. As for Reach's "title" - that's just Geoff running his tool mouth.

Karooo2958d ago

if you think its not that, am feel sorry for you.

ProA0072958d ago

how exactly do sales count into how anticipated a game is though? I mean Blaze makes some good points - a decade is a very long time. If I felt like it I'd actually look up every game release/announcement since 2000 because that would be an interesting research project.

If sales are anything to go by then the next Wii Sports title will be the most anticipated game evarrrr.....right.

Hell, I'm pretty sure Half-Life 3/Half-Life 2: Episode 3 would probably rank as most anticipated game of the decade. GT5 I'm having a hard time believing. But I could be wrong.

Dance2958d ago (Edited 2958d ago )

how long has the series been on the market

ATLGAMER2958d ago

will not be as big as it was before...perole have found a new shooter in Mw2...If Odst was any indication of the Halos sales from that point on...ten it is not the same

DigitalRaptor2958d ago

not to you, and not to me either. But I would say definitely one of the top anticipated.

TheGreenMan2958d ago

Tell us what is the most anticipated instead of just saying "nope sorry."

Nike2957d ago

There are so many games that were highly anticipated this decade (note that anticipated does not equal "good") it's hard to just choose one. Duke Nukem Forever, Half Life 2, Doom 3, Final Fantasy XIII, Versus XIII, Final Fantasy XII, Soul Calibur II, Killzone 2, God of War 2 and 3, Gran Theft Auto IV (even San Andreas and Vice City), Crisis Core, the Pokemon series, Modern Warfare 2, Uncharted 2...

I think all the Gran Turismos released this decade - and that would make about, say, 4 of them including GT5 - would fit into that category of some of the most anticipated games but saying that one single GT is THE most anticipated game of the decade is just traditional PR talk.

On another note: I may be reading too much into this but, if it's the most anticipated game of this decade, does that mean it'll be releasing within this decade? Did they indirectly hint at GT5 hitting this year?

zeksta2958d ago

I'll admit, this is probably the most anticipated game for owners of the PS3 and previous GT owners, but all in all, i wouldn't make the assumption that this game is in-fact the most anticipated.
