SystemLink: "Rumours have been flying round recently regarding the fact many retailers who have dared to put up a date have oddly converged on December 5th, leading many to speculate that this is the new GT5 release date."
At least with the game going gold it should be out before Christmas. Well, hopefully.
Do we get one of these for every day of the month? Tommorrow: GT5 not releasing December 6th Day after: GT5 not releasing December 7th The wait is hard enough. Stop killing us with all this speculation. lol for the disagree, I giggled like a little girl.
We have to put a bit of the blame on shops. They say random dates that haven't even been confirmed. So our hopes go up, SONY/PD say its released later and we are all sad. If SONY/PD told us the date from the start (Like Nov but unfortunately delayed as you know), we know that's the date it will be released. Chances of it being delayed a second time are very slim as it has been given gold status. But yeah, I WANT sony or PD to give us an official date. Its frustrating.
It was reported on Oct. 14th that they missed the production deadline by 3 days. So let's say that was supposed to be the 11th, but I'll even got to the 10th for a little extra time. Now that is just over 3 weeks if they reported them missing the deadline promptly. So if they are in production as of yesterday, possibly a day or two before, I'd guess maybe Nov. 23rd or 30th at the earliest. Keep in mind this is just a guess with a lot of fudging since the data in inaccurate and I'm sticking with the typical Tuesday US release day. Hell, it's probably more accurate than what all these sites and retailers are spitting out. ;D
Non-article. All we have is Kaz saying the disks are being pressed "as he spoke" yesterday. Everything else is speculation - maybe Sony can't be sure yet because it depends on speed of pressing and shipping and they don't want to risk comitting to a date only to have to revise it again... Either way, these guys know as much as us. I guess there may be an announcement at SEMA for the GT awards or to tie in with that later today. r.
Why is this even news? And I love it how the title comes off like it's a fact that its not releasing on Dec 5th. And yet the whole article, all 3 sentences of it, are pretty much saying how this date is just a rumour so basically no one has said it will be the 5th, but no ones said it wont be the 5th either! So unless you know a release date for a fact, gtfo.
If GT5 has received gold status, it shouldn't take anywhere near a month for silk screening, assembly & shipping. The process is much quicker. I assume Sony manufactures their own games? If so, their turn around is 10 to 14 days. Sony should break the silence and provide their users with an official statement regarding where the project stands.
I think you underestimate how many copies Sony has to make, for different regions and different versions. Not only that, but this is a busy time of year with lots of other games and movies trying to get BDs pressed. And like everything else, while Sony might be the biggest client of BDs - commercially speaking they can't just ignore the requirements and commitments of 3rd parties. r.
You're underestimating how big Sony and their partners are. The two week turn around i mentionned above includes 3rd party orders as no company who wants to stay in business ignores their clients no matter how big they are. Common sense really. My question to you, how many bluray disks can Sony produce world wide in a single day? Choose either 25g or 50g, with or without packaging. Doesn't really matter.
I cant really say I know much abou the process of making BD's but I'm pretty sure Sony will have more than one plant, and I'm pretty sure it wouldn't take them more than a couple of weeks to produce 10mil copies across their different plants.
It's officially gt5 will be release in 2050. Let's just sit tight and pray.
lol praying progressive thing to do
Son-of-a..... well either way I have my pitchfork ready in January, just in case.
Allow me to translate.... "I have no news regarding GT5..... But please visit my useless piece of shit blog so I may waste your time further." A message to the writer: Fuck off with this shit. Oh and if you're one of the 15 that approved this garbage, I want you to promptly go fuck yourself. And then feel ashamed... Not for fucking yourself, but for approving said article.
I approve this comment. 100% true in every way.
Would be funny if they pulled a Dreamcast, "It's out NOW!" lol
The plot thickens.
So... Who else is getting sick of all the release date speculation?
This website is confirming everything is just speculation and no one really knows. However I digress that we all already knew this information so not sure why someone needed to write 3 paragraphs and submit it as "news".
I'm sick and tired of all the release date speculation too. At this point I don't care what day it's coming out, as long as it's coming out in 2010 (and I think it will). Plus, with Kazunori Yamauchi confirming it's gone gold, none of these speculation articles mean anything to me anymore.
Yamauchi also confirmed GT5 was finished and could be released at any time. How long ago was that? I would wait for an official statement from Sony. If it's not from Sony themselves, i wouldn't take the info seriously. IMO, they need to release this game before the holidays.
To be fair, Kazunori Yamauchi said (in 2009) that it was 95% complete and they were just polishing it. Took a year of polishing and now is ready.
I am getting more sick of the lames who approve these lame articles with no substance. This site really needs a way to make this crap which is approved for this site more difficult
Haha this is getting comical!
actually this is getting sad. i was supposed to be playing this game today
if it goes to 2011, that is the biggest flop ever I mean how long have i been waiting for this shit now?
It still won't be a "flop". I'm sorry to tell you that. GT5 will still sell a good 2 million the first month worldwide and that's probably a conservative number. GT may not sell as well as Halo does, but it's not that far off either. Edit: @ rekof Yeah, I know that. I was just making the point that GT is not something that people are going to ignore just because it's taken so long to release. Once it releases, it will sell like crazy and so will PS3s. I can see 1 million PS3s selling in the month that GT releases and if it does release this December before Christmas, Sony might even sell 1.5 million PS3s (worldwide) that month.
yes,.. but GT is a bigger franchise than halo,.. dude first 3GT's have sold more than the whole halo franchise combined(don't know if this number includes Reach also, but I think it does),..
It does indeed, GT3 a spec sold 14 million copies. Halo C:E and halo 2 added together including both the PC and 360 platforms it was released on, sold 14.8 million.
im not a fan boy but it's true , i dunno why u people still play it !! i seee every year people getting cray , so maybe that's why u people still like halo and hate gta iv or games like that , don't compare this to halo because halo is nothing ... GT5 will sell millions and even more then that crap halo and if it doesn't sell more i don't care because i already know that halo is crap and GT5 is the best game i'll ever see in this console gen ... but still hate when people act like apes and still compare xbox360 games to ps3 games , it's really annoying >.< ... i know what will u say ( get a life ) but GT5 is my life !!!! i don't even like cars !! >.< , but gt5 changed it and will change alots of people minds about cars ....
didn't sony say they will have the release date before the end of october.. when the delay was first announced
How about we just wait until Sony say something rather than a random retailer email or German website.
Does this release date crap matter anymore? It's gold now....so normally how long has it taken games that have gone gold to hit store shelves? We could see it before Novembers end if anything.
i give up yo. i am not even going to bother to read the "official" release date news (if that ever happens). my new plan is walking into a store picking it up (when the store lets me know by text that the game has arrived) .
Lol....not a bad plan at all.
I'll just sit back and let the delivery man do the work.
They'd lose so much money, I can't see them not releasing it before Christmas. They seriously need to release it before Black friday, but if they haven't mentioned a date by now its just giving them a smaller promotional window.
and i mean ya know surely sony wouldn't be so naive about this title. they know the potential sells of this game, and all and for them to be quiet makes no sense. it would be a huge mistake to release gt5 without any promotion or nothing coming into the holiday season. until i see an article from sony confirming a solid date again, im ignoring all posts on here like this one about gt5.
No way in hell is this thing making 2010 now. I mean they could but they have what, a month at best to promote it? I don't think releasing it Q1 2011 would hurt it that badly because you'll buy it whether it's released in Spring, Summer, Fall, or Winter, but it may lose some money. Making Black Friday is impossible at this point. They could get it out the door before Christmas, but chances are slim. Hell the things been delayed and delayed for five years now, whats another 2 or 3 months?
Duke Nukem forever maybe lol
its been delayed once world wide, and twice for japan. so...yeah, I don't get the obsession with GT5 being delayed, this is the first REAL delay if anything, GT5 has as many international delays as GeoW3...=|
*pulls out hair* Can we please for the love of the Almighty, stop approving this crap! All I want to hear is the release date, any extra features and any offical word from Sony or the developer about any delays! Stop with the random guesses and predictions, please! We are already on edge as it it. BTW it has been developed for five years not delayed
then why hasn't sony came out and confirmed a release date again already? if they keep waiting and letting this critical time go by, it could cost them a lot this holiday season. makes no sense for sony to be quiet about such a big release like this one. will just keep waiting for confirmation from sony themselves. "I mean they could but they have what, a month at best to promote it? "- dabadguy, one of my points exactly. times a wasting.
if this game doesnt make it this holiday season, i'm afraid sony will have ruined a great chance at pumping their ps3 sales. It would be a terrible marketing decision on their behalf. Also, when are they going to squeeze it in next year? You have dead space 2, little big planet 2, killzone 2, and crysis 2 early next year already! they will have to delay it until at least april 2011, which is wayy to long. My opinion is that sony will push polyphony to release it in december, however late december it is. They NEED the extra boost to xmas sales since no ps3 exclusive came out this fall/winter.
this game coming befor christmas and that's it guys , stop saying stupid things !!!!!!!!! the game is finished , they only need to copy the game 10 million times !!!!!!! just kidding , i don't know how much they are going to copy , but im sure the game will come in december , and it will sell millions !!! now get over it and shut it !!!!!!
when you're done with your time machine, Id like to borrow it if you dont mind.
Well they say it is in manufacturing at the moment. Guess they have many millions of copies to press for the release. Hope this will now be at an end so we can play this game.
I don't even care anymore. When it comes it comes. I just hope I don't die before it comes.
Me too...I hope they don't announce a release date and I show up at home one day to find it waiting for me in my mailbox from Amazon. That'd be aces.
FYI, the game was not announced to go gold, and no release date has been announced. Jesus relax people. All we heard was some hearsay information from a gaming site noones ever heard of, and all of a sudden the game is gold and coming out in 2 weeks? Hehe, yeah ok good luck with that. They havent even announced a freaking date yet, what does that tell you?
Just got mail from amazon.com Newe release date: december 31st
