A source has revealed that the release date for Gran Turismo 5 will be revealed in a matter of days. It is troubling that Sony is waiting so close to the holiday season to reveal a launch date.
Game of the year, Game of the year. Year.........
Throw out a crazy PS3 deal and GT5 on the same day! Please GT5, hurry up!
I'm getting kind of worried though. It's November 6th, a date has to come next week for their to be sufficient marketing push for the holidays. I really think Sony and fans alike may be overestimating GT5 impact in this the Call of Duty generation. The Call of Duty franchise has really drawn the casual player this generation. Where as last generation casual gamers played racing games and platformers, Call of Duty has really become an accessible core game which really has been the reason for its success. We're already seeing huge marketing pushes for NFS: Hot Pursuit and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. I think there is some consumer confusion out there as to when GT5 is coming out; If it's coming out. Sony needs to announce a date next week on the heels of Call of Duty Black Ops and have a marketing pushing going into the Thanks Giving and Christmas holidays.
i'm presuming there's this 'sleeping' crowd who loves GT5, just like there's soccer fans who buy it in millions. we hardly talk about them, they hardly make the headlines but they buy in hordes.. every year. nearly as much as COD (if you put together FIFA n PES). but i may be wrong about the numbers.
OMG! Just imagine if they released it on Black Friday with a bundle? $199 PS3 w/ Gran Turismo 5 jizzzzzz
What's with Sony's GT5 secrecy? It's holidays time already and they haven't even worked on Marketing for the launch of the game. Whatever they have on hands, it's NOT going to turn out good. This is worrying to say the least.
Really??? OMG I'm so worried! -_-
going to sell very well
the game is coming out in november-december. I'm watching the Montreal Toys-R-us christmas book and I see GT5 and It's priced at 59.99$. Doesnt seem like an Error to me.
I thought I was trippin last night when I seen GT5 in the Toronto walmart flyer. Hope its true, my G27 is lonely.
i got 2 posters from gamestop the sony dude was their and he said it ill be mid to late dec according to him.
GT5-GT5-GT5 Vroom! Vroom! ^_^
You know right that the Christmas 'books' are always made and printed by October - November?
*strokes the leather on his G27* Soon baby, soon.
You wouldn't understand our relationship... prude.
i understand Chaos...
me too chaos. I'd armor-all if I were you..hehe
nov 30th who wants to bet ....
3rd of Dec for the UK is what I'm thinking
You mean like the 11/30 thats coming up in like 3 weeks? Lol yeah good luck with that one.
Stop playing around and tell us. you're a bad pusher, just give us our GT5 fixing already.
I think that GT5 being so close to the release of Black Ops may have something to do with it. Sony wants to give this game enough space to breath. I'm thinking sometime in early December.... like the 7th.
I got an email from Amazon the other day, that said Dec 31st of this year.
Now THAT would be a stupid date.
That's only a placeholder date.
I got the same e-mail. Funny that the placeholder dates vary by country => seems like Amazon France (or another country's Amazon) had the new date as 12/17. Regardless, fingers crossed for a release asap! I can't imagine a delay that would put the release after Christmas.
As long as im driving for Christmas, i dont care what the release date is.
Early December if its true they started sending copies everywhere already.
Haha, we've got release dates for new release dates now. Sony sucks.
better than an anouncement of an anouncement that falls short of expectation
how about NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very soon = sooner than later maybe they announce it today. Come sony give us the release date.
Spit it out already!
I might be wrong but i think SONY has something up their sleeves for the next month! Maybe LBP2 an GT5 right b4 XMAS!!!! Hey a gamer can dream!!!! lol
Release the game before I release the hounds!
This is it guys. This is the moment we've all been waiting for...Gran Turismo 5 is finally about to be released! All the waiting during 6 long years, since the last GT, will become an afterthought when we're knee-deep in the campaign mode, having logged in 150+ hours. MoU is excited as a virgin girl about to be ******! ;D ;D ;D
Do it! Do it! Do it! Papa needs to get his drive on. Release the GT5 Kraken
im curious what is sonys advantage delaying the date annoucement. i mean if its really gone gold then it should be very safe to announce something. im so confuse with their marketing campaign. makes me wanna come there and slap them in the face.
release it on Black Friday !!!!!
OH PLEASE SONY LET IT BE THIS YEAR!!! It would suck if you release it in January. I know you did this cause of Call of Duty don't know if it's true BUT DO IT SOMETIMES THIS MONTH! Or Dec! I'm dying for it right now
GIVE US THE DAMN DATE ALREADY!!!!! Enough of this "GT5 release date very soon" crap!! It getting very annoying. Ok I feel better now.
A friend of mine who works at Toys R Us said a shipment of GT5 should be coming around Nov. 30th, so if my friend is correct, early December. I've been patiently waiting for this so I'm excited that it looks like it's early December.
They seriously need to get a date in and LOCKED in. People want this game... badly.
Maybe they will reveal it in commercial form??? Like how they did the E3 2010 trailer....
