Sony has finally nailed down a launch date for Gran Turismo 5, but was the last delay the straw that broke the gamer's back?
No matter how many haters, web site or analysts run their mouths, GT 5 will sell like crazy all over the world and it will continue to sell for years to come is Sony’s biggest game after all …
it will be KZ2 all over again...
GT5 will be quite a big hit not that KZ2 wasn't, but comparing their impact is a bit unfair I agree about the hate though same with Uncharted 2, and any big PS3 exclusive, gets shat on all the time by media I have NO idea why =|
I think he meant that the there was so much bashing of the game on Killzone 2 that the last thing they expected was a delivery. Of course, GT5 is on a much bigger scale (articles nit-picking again) except that Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2 pretty much put the PS3 in a more powerful position than it was 2 years back. -End statement
Nobody has anyone to blame for disappointment except for themselves. Too many people have let themselves build up such unrealistic expectations that the only possible result could have been disappointment. Like everyone else, there are aspects of GT5 that I wish were more fleshed out or different or improved... But that's not going to stop me from buying it on day 1, sinking hundreds and hundreds of hours into it, and having it be one of my favorite games in my collection. It simply gets hated on because people are too selfish, stupid, or ignorant to realize that Kaz has let nobody down; it is the disappointed people who have let THEMSELVES down. In my book, those who feel disappointed and angry about information that we've known for ages yet have been too ignorant or stubborn to accept it, or are angry over delays, are not true fans at all. Not at all.
Is the story about grand turismo 5 or Microsoft ?
People like you are the problem. Just reading through your own comment history is proof of that. "Before Microsoft gamers and reviewers stuck to their own platform. No one would be so pathetic as to try to smear games on competing platforms or get themselves jobs in the gaming media so they could trash titles on consoles that competed with their own. " Then why are you having such difficulties staying on topic? Why are you turning yet another article focusing in on a game only available on one platform, the Playstation 3, into a personal blog of how much you despise Microsoft? "All that sickening fanboyism ended up accomplishing nothing. The PS3 is the third fastest selling console in history and has dumped the 360 into last place. But it is still a disgusting change Microsoft has brought to the console market." No, what is disgusting is to have to filter through so many comments in every topic just to get back on topic because people like you have a keyboard, which is what changed over the years. That's why the respect is gone because anyone can say anything they please at any time of the day. As for buying Gran Turismo 5? Of course i am. I love racing games and i enjoyed previous Gran Turismo games and this has a ton of content in it. edit: Yes, keep the disagrees coming and show how anonymity is what it all boils down to on this site.

Seriously, I'm amazed you kept all these info. By the way, did I just see a username "cygnus" trolling in that thread 2 years ago. MY GOSH, he is so persistent doing it until this very moment in n4g? -End statement
Not many who will be buying is going to tell u that. They ain't got the time. Most of them is in a hurry packing their loads for the camp!
ps3 came out in 07 took 3 years to make gt5 been WAITING for it for 5 years lol why the hell wouldnt i buy it ?
then the question would be "Why are you not buying Gran Turismo?" I don't know a gamer that is a fan of racing that isn't looking forward to GT5. The game nearly covers every facet of racing. There is something in it for nearly all racing fans. I am trying to get as many of the titles I own right now wrapped up before 11/24 because I know from the day on all my other games will be neglected at the very least until 2011.
Its made me want it more. Im a big forza fan but just seeing the latest videos with the weather and night racing and the incredible graphics just goes to show how talented pd are. I hope turn 10 can take a leaf out of pds book and take forza to the level gt5 will be at. I ve just orderd the gt pro wheel with a stand and gt5 i cant wait
...This is an example of a proper gamer. If only more of N4G was like you, good sir.
actually increased the hype. This game was getting some attention before, but nothing like we are experiencing now. It's amazing how many stories, good or bad are out. And as they say all publicity is good publicity. Plus now this game will be coming out and nothing will be in it's way. All the high profile games will have already released and GT5 will be able to run all the way through the holidays. This may actually increase the sales of the game.
Agreed. Competition is a good thing. It pushes developers even further and it also opens up more ideas because you then have more programmers in the field who specialize in that genre.
You'd have to be pretty stupid to own a PS3 and not buy GT5.
wtf??? of course i will!!!
I said it once but I'll say it again. Why is there so much hate on GT5? Previous GTs never had hate. Something smells fishy ;) ;) Hahah.
Why wouldn't you buy GT5? If you have another console...why should you care?
GT was the game that made me go from being a big nintendo fan to a big sony fan since i first played it, that same day i got a ps1 and gt and the rest is history, i still have every gt game, and i love cars and have alot of respect for kazunori yamauchi and his vision that some day it will come true, perfection and i think he is very close to making it come true and i cant wait, i hope for one day to meet him in person and to tell him thanks for creating GT
Have to admit, I have been waiting forever for this game, however the car list has put me off a lot, I will likely still get it, But to be honest, I dont think its quite up to scratch for what we should expect after such a long development, Its not balanced enough. The three premium suzuki cappucinos were like pouring vinegar in an already open wound too
What kind of stupid question is that!?! Are you (us) going to buy Grand Tursimo 5. GT5 is in high demand. One of the biggest games in highest demand ever.
What is this "Grand Tursimo 5" game you speak of?
No! I'm so angry about the 6 year long wait. The constant delays. I intended to punish the designers by boycotting the game...Oh who am I kidding. Yes I'm buying it! I can't wait!
Collectors edition on day one without a shadow of a doubt.
of course i'm buying it.
Same, no matter how many delays or lack of ads if people walk in and see a new GT game there gonna buy it lol
Pre ordered CE since august, yes I am with out a doubt.
america land of the brai washed
How is this brainwashed? Everyone buying this game loves cars and the series. If we were all buying Barbie's race adventure. That would be brainwashing.
Poor prettyboy. Oh, the ignorance. GT5 = Masterpiece
I am not a racing fan but I am willing to buy GT5 - says it all.
something about GT franchise really interests me where no other racing game does...
shut up gamepro
*Counting his money* sure I will :)
day 1 no doubt it would be very stupid not to buy this game,speaking of fan side or non fan side! this game is playstation most influental brands,and cca 20 people just in my neiborhood gonna buy ps3 just for this game(they w8 for 3 years just for this)
i havent cancelled preorder since that delay announcement. That was only one delay we experienced. (only Japan experience 2 delays). yes i will get GT5
I'll pass.... thanks though. Racing games are just not worth it imho.
Racing games are just not worth it??? *smh* you lost me, man.
Now what the f$ck kind of question is that!? OF COURSE I AM!!!
asking is the sky blue? Is water wet?
hell yeah !
I'm not into racing games but even i'm buying day 1.
Are those of you who hate delays enjoying the polish of games like Black Ops and most of Ubisoft's releases? I'd rather wait until it's actually ready for release. Regardless, any racing fan would get GT5. I'm so glad it's finally here.
Yes of course, it's a crime not to.
Oh, HEEEEEELLLLL YEEEEAAAAAAAH! Stupid Question .
and I don't even like racing games. It's one of those essential exclusives that renders a console redundant unless you buy it.
@ss question. of fricken course. dummies were waiting for the release date to spread this bullsh!t.i have a question for the haters and their stupid articles and comments... "can you stop a bullet?"that's GT5. kaz is about to pop a cap in microsft,turn-10 and ps3 haters @ss.no question.just because you know the date does not mean you will stop this game.this isnt 2006 and people believing your nonsense.....
Even though I'm not buying, I'm positive it will be a great game that will give many people many hours of enjoyment. I'm not skipping it because of politics and drama of release dates etc., I'm just more of an arcade racer fan. Waiting for the next Motorstorm
i respect that. im both arcade and serious racer myself. At the moment, I enjoyed playing split second online. great arcade game. GT5 will require skill. I played Gran Turismo since it first released on PS1. So i have some skills to handle these cars. People who never played simulator racing games will find the game boring very quickly because they are not ready to try something more challenging. I will be playing GT5 for a long time.
a burnout ps2-style would get me in the games shop.
will i buy it??! lolol.. do cows sh*t in fields? :S
whatever the situation that occured WHICH BROUGHT UPON DELAY OVER DELAY - it was all about finalizing a game with the most REALISTIC visuals and REALISTIC GAMEPLAY and MOST FUN DRIVING GAME- OBSIOUSLY YOU can tell that this developer is very very passionate about racing and so he felt it all justified to delay- unlike some developers who all they think about is collecting money from consumers asap b/c they NEED to get paid due their wallets running dry HENCE MANY GLITCHES AND SHODDY GAMEPLAY IE. FABLE 3 , 2, 1 ALAN WAKE ECT ECT...--NOT SONY - THEY LISTEN AND UNDERSTAND THE DEVELOPERS AND WANT THEIR GAMERS TO FEEL MORE THAN SATISFIED WITH THE FINAL PRODUCT - not to mention this gt5 game is what PLAYSTATION is all about. NOVEMBER 24 2010 - AND ALL THE HOLIDAY SEASON GAMERS AROUND THE WORLD WILL BE RACING- AND I MYSELF WILL BE ACING ALL THE RACES WITH NUMBER 1 SPOT. YES SIR. DON'T CALL ME SIR - I WORK FOR A LIVING! CHEERS!!!!!!!!
Yes we can!
Unlike Diskinect, Sony has my £150 for the Sig edition.
Straw? Camel? Back? It's GT5! I bought a PS3 2 and a half years ago for this game! Of course I'll buy it! I can't wait!
After waiting for 5 years I'd be an idiot not to have GT5. This was the definitive console racing game back in the days and will re-define what definitive means in this generation.
yeh. the delays are annoying but better late than never
Yeah, i will.
Hell yes !!!!!!!! Does pope shit in the woods and helps pedobear get away with his crime? yes!!
I'am GT fan,but sell my PS3 and not buy Hype Turismo 5. 5 years waiting this game! Crap track list,crap car list,800 GT4HD cars!Where is gameplay and screens this cars?? This game maybe biggest disappointing this generation,PD:F..ck you!
wow,.. Being quite good at maya and 3d max,.. I am surprised and shocked it took them only 5 years Are you sure you are not trolling bro?
