Russian is a tricky language to master especially on a game to be released worldwide.

It shouldn't affect most of Europe thou. Sorry for the Russians.

I'm sure russians will get English version or a language that they can understand.

vasilisk3298d ago

This is not only a problem for Russia. I've known this since yesterday and I live in another European country.
Unfortunately the "unofficial" word is that it is going to be delayed at least 2 weeks, maybe even close to a month. I don't know the reason why but it will affect whole of Europe, I can't speak for the US release...

Mmmkay3298d ago

i don't want GT5 in FUCKING NORWEGIAN! English will do just fine..

AllroundGamer3298d ago

In Soviet Russia Gran Turismo 5 delayes you.

Lazy_Gamer3298d ago (Edited 3298d ago )

Damn! You got to do it first. Good one though.
The russians should be happy. We don't have release dates here so we have to wait for stores to get them from Europe or the US then buy it and pay extra for profit and to cover a few journey costs.

SB_tanker3297d ago
