Kazunori: "The [GT5] Discs Are Being Stamped As We Speak"

Jalopnik: We just asked Kazunori Yamauchi, the father of Gran Turismo, in an interview here at SEMA, the question on everyone's minds — when will GT5 finally be released? His response: "The discs are being stamped as we speak." (Gran Turismo 5, PS3)

Dont be overly excited. Although i cant hold it in myself, lets wait for when they say
YES it WILL come out before Black Friday.

I Live in England Btw, we dont get Black Friday. But we get boxing day, exactly like black friday, but its one day after christmas.

Gran Turismo 5, i shall make way for when you enter my house. I'll hoover and wash the dishes, and make sure the house is 100% clean.

I would love to be wrong, but I seriously doubt that the game will be released before Black Friday. Even with the disks being stamped, Sony still has to pump out the advertising and work out the massive logistics required in shipping all of the disks to the stores. I'd say that the best bet at the moment would be early to mid December.

But still, this is amazing news and pretty much dispels any worries of a 2011 release. Assuming that this news is correct, we shall all be playing GT5 in just a few short weeks! ^_^

Is it really coming out this year?

I was all but convinced it would be pushed till 2011. This is the best news ever. I guess now I am finally going to have to get off my lazy ass and install my new racing seat for my pod.

GT5 will go through the same processes every other game does...there's nothing to "work out" in terms of logistics. They just have to go through the motions.

If the game is being stamped as we speak, it's entirely possible they could get it out by late November. Will they? Hard to say. As you seem to imply, they COULD hold it back for additional marketing buzz.

My guess is they have all the advertising assets and TV spots ready to go as we speak, though.

aGameDeveloper  +   1607d ago
The disk being stamped could have little to do with a release date... They could still decide to hold the release for market reasons. They could hold it for a day-one patch needed to fix/unlock half the content on the disk. They could be stamping a logo on the disks, which will be later stamped with the actual content!
moparful99  +   1606d ago
First of all they have off site back ups and they also have official hard copies of the gold that they keep in house.. Likelyhood of all backups being destroyed simultaneoulsy is not only far fetched but has never happened to any other game.. You are just getting people riled up for not....

He is a liar
if the dam disk were being stamped we would have a release date. If he is not lying and the disks are being stamped, then prepare for lies in the future from Sony, because they will hold off the launch for some strategic reason, bottom line is if the game is done, they should have a release date.

Why is it so strange? They already stated that they missed their manufacturing window by 3-4 days which meant they have to start making disks and then figure out the best time to launch... Maybe they are waiting for the cod black ops madness to die off before saying anything as to not be overlooked... Gt5 is coming before january stop being so negative and maybe you would enjoy life a little more...

funny analogy...though your math is a bit off
The PS3 came out November of 2006 for North America and Japan and some other asian countries....it did not come out till 2007 for the EU.

So basic math tells us that your PS3 has been pregnant for 4 years.

Still....I am finally going to be able to get excited (once again) for this game. THIS is the game I bought my PS3 back in November of 2006 for....and THIS is the game I will play for hour after hour after hour after hour after hour....

Ganestop? Do you hate your money?

Trade in 100 games and get 10% off the new game which in one weeks time you could trade in for $10's and we'd sell it again for retail prices.

I'm not saying your bad, most of the game shop employees in my area know nothing about games...

Also why are you tenting outside? Move some shifts and get into works and sneak a copy, pay and go off ill for a week.

Eurolamer "Source: "Not much hope" for GT5 in 2010"

When you say "not much hope" do you mean for you being considered a credible news source for ps3 games? Or that a source said that gt5 probably isn't making it this year? I see the father of GT begging the differ. Eurotrash. You just sunk on a whole new level of fail, and this time you didn't even have to sabotage a ps3 exclusive on review to do so. Good job!

Stamping the discs doesn't mean it's being released straight away. First they need a large supply of copies. Then they need to ship them. Then they need an advertising campaign. And it needs to be planned. Etc.

"Stamping the discs doesn't mean it's being released straight away. First they need a large supply of copies."

True, but stamping is a very fast process.

"Then they need to ship them."

They already have their shipping channels setup. That's a cakewalk and takes a matter of a few days.

"Then they need an advertising campaign. And it needs to be planned. Etc."

Obviously they already have their advertising campaign planned for this. I guarantee the commercials were shot long ago.

"2011 sounds about right. February/March is my bet."

But, they may have gained a strategic advantage as well. I just hope it comes out before before the new year. My PS3 is waiting also!
