Kazunori Yamauchi has reiterated his belief that gamers will have their hands on a copy of Gran Turismo 5 before Christmas.
I hope he's right or else I'd imagine there's gonna be a lot of very peeved gamers out there.
We will see it before Christmas... Just would be really silly to miss the Christmas Holiday, when it would mean some huge sales.. especially as a last minute gift. Sales could be huge as people who might not have even thought about buying a game will most likely pick it up as a gift, giving the title some sales it might not have seen at any other time of the year.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
of course, we'll be able to... i'm crossing my fingers and toes here!
Honestly, this game has been delayed for so long, if anyone is still waiting I think they'd wait for however long it takes to get it done now.
Oh yeah sure - this is a new GT, the first full release on the PS3 and what must be the fullest featured game about cars anywhere. There are a lot of people who'll simply be purchasing this whenever it arrives (within the lifetime of the PS3 itself of course!) Really, times of year don't matter for a product with as much market presence and following as this. Really though Sony need to get this sold and start the work rolling on GT6. If GT6 improves on 5 like 4 did on 3, then there is something very special coming - it'd be a shame if that has to wait for PS4. r.
@ryuzu: Time of the year matters for profit even for GT5. Releasing the game in holiday window will result in sales boost with launch price. Releasing it some time earlier may not necessary boost sales but there won't be such sales boom with launch price and during holiday window it'll sell, yeah, but at lower price. But if you mean market presence alone, it's shouldn't matter for this franchise.
will just make playing this awsome game that much more special
He shouldn't think we will, he should know...
Christmas 2012? Oh wait we will all be dead.....according to Mayans, they must be Forza fanboys.
Actually the Mayan Calendar has been misread and the analysts were off by 50-100 years, so 2012 will not be the end of the world. http://news.yahoo.com/s/liv...
^^ You're confused. The Mayan's have no special information about any "end of the World". 20 years ago, it was Nostradamus, then a few cults sparng up for the Millenium and now it's Mayan's. Don't let yourself be convinced by ancient myths and hokum theories. r.
***Don't let yourself be convinced by ancient myths and hokum theories. *** Where's the fun in that, though?
I literally laugh that people believe yhings that acient people marked down hundreds of years ago...are there any mayans around now? No! If i wrote down the sun is going to blow up on March 26, 2015 is that really going to happen?
There has been more predictions on the PS3's demise than there is on global catastrophe's put together. -End statement
Wait what...I thought this game released didnt it? I am playing it LIVE wtf! (LOL) Back on topic; def. playing this till next next christmas
How can he not know, he's the games creator?!
That it's out of his hands now, he did his part, but it's up to Sony to print enough copies pick the date and get it out on time... So the actually code has been finalized and pressing disc has begun, -but it's in Sony's hands now to finalize everything Which I"m sure they will do in the next few days.. (giving us the date and any other info needed) .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Ok, that's it. We are fu**ed.
to think we should all be playing the shit out this game rite now makes me a little sad lol. hopefully that 30th nov rumour is true
i hope so!!!
Doesnt it say end of November on the Sony store?
Sure, but that could be a mistake. You can never trust a retailer, even if it is Sony.
Given the Gold status (GT5). It is definitely believable. Discs are ready, (ofcourse stamping some etc). I will buy the game no matter the date. Although i would love it to be released end of November or early December.
Hello, We have received new release date information related to your pre-ordered video game in the order you placed on October 20 2010 (Order# 103-###). The release date for the video game listed below has been changed by the publisher, and we want to provide you with a new delivery estimate based on the new release date: "Gran Turismo 5" Release date: December 31 2010 Estimated arrival date: January 06 2011 - January 10 2011
December 31 seems more like a placeholder or something. Would they release a game that late? I hope we'll see it in December, but I think 2011 is more likely..
They only put that date because they didn't know what else to put. By the way, you should change to 'release-date-delivery' ;. It's only 99 cents, so you save money and get it the same day. From what I see is that you have standard shipping selected.
Mr Kazunori Yamauchi just sent me an email,and told me that they had to fix the ugly screentearing and put some proper trees in it.Thats why its the delayed

Stop these articles, it became a farce...
I can't change the release date 99 cent delivery until there's an actual release date lol
Yea your right, I just looked at the amazon page. There was same day delivery before November 1 because I was able to select release date delivery and still have it for my pre-order.
