While it hasn't quite reached Duke Nukem Forever status, Polyphony Digital's full-fledged Gran Turismo follow-up for PlayStation 3 is a long-time coming. But according to SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda, the wait is nearly over.
good.. that will give me time to catch up on old games and enjoy the ones that are coming out that are equally awesome..
well as long as it doesn't reach the dev cycle of Too Human i dont mind. Next year would be a great time to throw it in. They have every genre covered then with exclusives alone. Throw in multiplats and we got one of the best years of gaming
I'm dissapointed... oh well, better later then never.
Well something had to move from march. There was no way GOW3, GT5 and FF13 were all going to release in march. There's alot of games to play anyway. I'd be worried if I felt GT5 was being delayed for problematic reasons but I know this is going to be the best racing game i've ever played. This just means weather, night will definitely be included, damage may be even better on all vehicles, and hopefully now they'll include that 'world's best driving road' track from top gear
Thank goodness, that's one less game I have to worry about rushing out to go get in the first 1/4 of the year. That being said, GT5 better be off the charts, and loaded with content. We've had GT HD Concept at PS3 launch, GT5:P, and now another demo for Christmas, and now we have to wait at least another 6 months before we get to play the retail release. I want a track editor, car customization, full damage on EVERY car (that also affect car handling), and everything else. I have high expectations for you GT5 don't let me down.
Can't wait for the king to arrive.
Better come out fast cuz I don't want to wait so long to play THIS AWESOME GAME Yamuachi-san, you are taking the Perfectionism too serious /jk
Yes, some breathing room for my wallet and chance for the game to be closer to my birthday. Now I don't have to sacrifice getting WKC or MAG depending on the situation. Also gives me time to rack up some more gc.
Gran Turismo 3 also had a summmer release. I'd say this is a perfect time for a game to come out just like how successful MGS4 was in the summer. This game is Game of The Year.
For F*** sakes, why don't they just delay it some more! I know it'll benefit from all the delays, but damn i just want to play it!
Sorry but if the game doesn't come out during the winter quarter, its not going to be considered GOTY material according to the VGA's. Case and point, stupid ASSASSIN'S CREED 2 nominated before the game released, LEFT4DEAD 2 nominated after a week the game released. Suitable choices that should have replaced it: Killzone 2 and possibly Forza 3. Furthermore, whoever wins GOTY also wins Studio of the year because its the EXACT SAME studios that represents GOTY. VGA's have gone downhill. In my opinion, Guerilla studios should win because they made the graphical leap from the infamous trailer that ALL journalists dogged on to "Ok, I won't mention the graphics anymore but lets start with the control's now and not mention how innovative the control and cover scheme it really is."
Summer now? March would've been better. But hey guys... if you're really itching for a racing game.... give F3 a try. It's cheaper nowadays anyway. I'm not being a fanboy here but seriously, Summer is June and that's 6 months away. You'll make back $39.99 in an hour or two of work anyways. So if you're itching for a racer, get something to play for the meantime.
Most people assumed the March Japanese release date would mean March release for NA and EU as well. I better not hear anyone say that its been "delayed" despite the Japanese March release date still holding true. This is also the first time a western release date was slightly hinted at.
Summer? Damn thats a huge game for Summer.
I was thinking the same for MGS4 and look how well that did
It's good to give giants their space. GoW3/FF13 march, GT5 summer, halo reach near Nov (guessing here). Man 2010 isn't gonna let down for a second! Action packed all year!
but i thought they said spring at tgs man
Why do they keep delaying it didn't the guy who makes GT say last year it was already done it was just a matter of Sony to chose when it was coming out. It's been in development for what now 5-6 years. Well I guess if they make it better that's what matters.
They're adding more stuff to it. They're trying to reach a level of perfection with the damage modeling system.
Um, did it have a release date in the first place?
You got to look at the positives, better game + more time to gather money! because 2010 will drain your money!
It never had a release date. They said they COULD release it at any time, but instead they chose to polish and tweak.
blue7xx7 why don't you read the article instead of just the title like every other mindless moron on here.... The March release is for Japan and there was never a release date for NA/EU and it's good because the first half of the year was full enough as it is they need to spread some of these games throughout the year so we all wont be selling our kids (joke) to be able to buys games. "When asked if there would be any difference between the Japanese version set for release in March and the North American version many months later, he was also non-committal, saying simply they hadn't yet revealed the full feature list. Details, he told me, would be coming soon." Oh and BTW I'm not sure if they have a release Date for Halo reach yet but you can almost confirm that they will be releasing it most likely at the same time as GT5 to try and steal the spotlight from Sony.
this only game so much
@cereal_killa Why dont you stop being a moron and stop assuming peole haven't read the article which I have. Wow with stupid responses like that I wonder how in the world do you have so many bubbles for comments. Anyways I just want this game already it seems like I have been waiting forever for it. Is it so bad that I want to play it already wow and what does Halo reach have to do with any of this wow just wow man.
They may not have had an offical release date, but they kept throwing out dates all the time. 2009, holiday 2009(november something), March 2010, now summer 2010. If they don't have an offical date, they shouldn't give everyone ifs and buts, to get their hopes up. Either way i can't freaking wait for this game. It's gonna be amazing just like every other GT(except the psp version).
blue7xx7 Dont tell me you read it because it tells you right in the article that the release date was for JAPAN only and the reason I brought Halo reach in yes it was off topic but they did the same thing earlier with Halo wars releasing it the same time that Killzone 2 came out so I see them doing that same thing again because unlike Killzone the GT series is a huge seller better than Halo and Gears combined in total sales so bringing in a well know huge selling game at the same time would put all the attention on HALO and little on GT5 so all the little Muppets and joke journalist will do nothing but release HALO is this and that articles.
Summer makes sense though. Sony have God of War for March in the Western world, I doubt it appeals to Japanese tastes and there's no point in Sony releasing both games the same month. Hey, that's what I said ages ago!
A Q1 release would be the ultimate nonsense considering how overbooked Q1 already is with the amount of multiplatforms + MAG+Heavy R+ WKC+ FFXIII+ GoW3+Yakuza 3
@4.1 You know FF13 is included in the multiplat category. LOL. I know, it's weird not to play FF on a PS console after so long, and more than likely the PS3 version will be the preferred version. As far as PS3 exclusives go I can relax a little more knowing GT5 slipped to Summer for US. GOW3, Yakuza 3, and Heavy Rain are the buys, the others are rentals to test them out first.
@4.2 said:( You know FF13 is included in the multiplat category. LOL. I know, it's weird not to play FF on a PS console after so long, and more than likely the PS3 version will be the preferred version.) And that xbox version is way inferior to the ps as well, guessing so ffx3 is another exclusive for ps(or at least the full game experience is exclusive to ps3) lol.
FFXIII is to PS3 what MW2 was for the 360 (if that makes any sense).
I agree Saaking. It's pretty much the same thing, except a little more extreme in FFXIIIs favour.
TBH im not surprised cause it just seems like as far as i can remember GT games usually come out in the summer time so i was kind of expecting this, especially since GOW3,FF13 and Yakuza3 all releasing march it just makes sense to me for Sony to spread the proverbial wealth around because you have to sell units all year not just 1 month. 1 more thing is this kind of tells me that if TLG comes out 2010 it will probably be a Nov. release to get the holidays started
cuz this last summers game releases sucked ...I need a good summer title and this will do the trick!
Just means less money I have to spend in Q1. Man I cant wait for this game to come out ^-^.
They might as well go with fall-winter 2010 then, hardly anyone plays games in summer.
The only reason I don't play games in the summer is because there are no games to play. Seriously, with all the major releases either hitting the beginning or ending of the year, I'm actually quite glad that I will have GT5 to fill up the long summer.
Did they REALLY delay that game AGAIN? Wow. Incoming PS3 Fan Quotes: "I don't care if they delay it. As long as they get it right." "Now I'll have something to play this summer! Sounds good." "It'll outdo Flopza!" "Good. I'll already have too many games to play to make room for GT5." "Early 2010 was too crowded already. Good move." Typical. Tsk, tsk, tsk. NO. ONE. CARES. Especially after all of these years of waiting.
January Feburary--------------------W INTER March April--------------------SPRI NG May June July--------------------SUMME R August SONY hasn't announced Q3 nor Q4 yet :D
Your just mad cuz your parants bought u a 360 and not a ps3. Its ok kid, when/if u grow up and get a job, you can get a PS9.
Um, doing a little research wouldn't hut. From what I gather, the March release date if for JAPAN. This is for NA. "During a short demo presentation of Gran Turismo 5 earlier this week, Hinojosa-Miranda re-confirmed the March 2010 release for for Japan. Without getting too specific, he then revealed that Sony was eying a vague "Summer 2010" release, which hopefully means we'll see it before leaves start falling off trees next year. " How about you read the damn article you moron.
First we get early 2010, now it's mid 2010. It'll probably get pushed back far enough to become a PS4 launch title, lol.
...So I'm not sure what you're talking about. The "early 2010" is March for Japan.
This is great!! Cus it gives me more time to play god of war III and its a good time to realese it during the summer cus during that time threres no games to play so gt5 should get all my attention in the summer ;)
most anteciped game 2010 for sure!!
So now its summer 2010 right? And ANOTHER demo soon, jees. Wouldn't surprise me if spring 2010 they would say it'll be a Christmas 2010 launch and Fall 2010 they'll announce it'll be a PS4 launch title...
If the Japanese launch date doesn't change then I'm importing.
March 2010 release date is for Japan. -_-
o well just delay it till fall, and make sure it has track editor and day and night cycle :(
i am sick of wait and wait but i have to do it. another motherfuc***** year.
GOW3 and GT5 in March is maddness.
Not necessarily. They're different genres and just because someone buys one of those games doesn't mean they're interested in the other. I'm sure there are tons of GT fans who aren't going to buy GOW and vice versa. Also, just because a number of good games are released in one month doesn't mean you have to buy them all upon release. They'll still be available the next month, or year for that matter.
Feral, What about the peeps that love all genres? :( Also known as poor-ass gamers.
Not only does this give PD more time to make GT5 more better but ithis also gives me the chance to play GoW 3, Heavy Rain and BC2!
I'll have enough time to finish Need for Speed: Shift. =]
lol you still play shift? First day i bought the game i played it for 5mins and went and got my hard earned cash back. The controls where horrible and the graphics had way to much jaggies.
i did the exact thing thought shift was crapped after 10 min traded for uncharted 2. I got shift for cheap so it worked out well.
So let me just get this straight exclusives and enhanced versions. Januari -Mag Febuari -Wkc -Heavy Rain -Star ocean 4 International March -Yakuza 3 -God of war 3 April/May -Modnation racers (most likely) May -3d dot game heroes June/July -Gt5 I may have forgot some but thats 1 hell of a list with a completely empty Q4 and i think it wont take long for Sony to fill that up.
POLYPHONY! YOU'RE KILLIN ME! I want GT5 to to have a soundtrack like A-spec. Then I'll be a happy gamer.
That's a good fit for Gran Turismo. Sony needs to spread their games out a bit more so they will have something for the second quarter.
I hope with the demo they release next week will have damage-mode ability, so it could give us fans of GT Series to make opinions.. .. can't wait.. and wish DLC would be a last minute surprise.
To be honest im not sure mhat the fuss is about. The game is STILL out in Japan come March, and was never going to release in March elswhere, as has been stated before by Kaz himself. Even if its June its still only 3 months from the March date. Call me one happy chappy (or chappie.......like the dog food).
why summer??? craps was hopeing march oh,well can always buy it on asia-play.com
I brought prologue a few weeks ago and was a little disappointed to be honest. The graphics are good (though on close inspection not as good as first thought) but the handling and physics were not great. Menu system was pretty bad also (why doesn't it tell you the class of cars when your shopping straight away). I played it through and it was quite enjoyable though. Interior view is good and cars look nice. But... after spending a few weeks on that i was given Forza3 for my birthday and it is much better. Much much better physics and handling, better menus, options and the actual feeling of driving is better. Graphics are also very good. Some tracks are better than what iv'e seen in prologue others not... Forza's Maple valley looks ropey compared to the other tracks for one. Generally as it stands Forza3 is the better game at present in my opinion. Saying that i am well aware the prologue isn't a full game and the niggles i have will be sorted for GT5. I hope so. As it is P.Digital need to up their game by a considerable amount. Physics, menus and A.i need a complete overhaul which im hoping they will do along with better upgrade and tuning facilities than seen in the competition. If not then Gt5 will be the first Gt game i won't buy.
Can I just ask, what do you mean by "class of cars"? Like in Forza were it ranks then S or B or whatever? Well, it doesn't do that because, they expect you to look at the actual specs before buying a car.
Yeah thats what i mean. Maybe im just lazy. But ive brought cars that looked as though they would be suited to say B events but they were just over or under spec. I know under events it shows which car is eligible but it would be a lot simpler to just have the class by the car like Forza. Makes upgrading a lot easier also. This is a game after all. Generally i enjoyed prologue but the menu and options do seem a bit clunky and not very well thought out.
See, in a way I do agree, Forza makes it easy to match to events, but this has been how Gran Turismo has always operated though... Prologue has it at a disadvantage though, because there's no customisation, so you can't upgrade to suit the races.
So this announcement for Summer 2010 is great news it'll come during a time when games are slow, I just hope Sony Markets this Game as this Is Gran Turismo 5 we are talking about
