CVG: European version sees slip, SCE UK confirms
from Socom to LBP2 to DC Universe (i think) and now to GT5! ALL DELAYED! i know its only been delayed by a couple of weeks, but its stupid to be advertising november 5th release date, and then delay it. People who are not gamers, and are interested in this game by visiting various kiosks and playing this are still assuming its releasing november 5th or whatever date it is in your country. this is just stupid
This does not fill me with confidence. http://twitter.com/PlayStat...
ok.. i've waited 2 years.. couple of weeks won't matter much... HOW DARE YOU YOU YOU YOU... FREAKING POLYPHONY!!!!! EDIT: @T9(below): well.. i hope it's only couple of weeks.
Who's to say it's a few weeks? January is part of the holiday season, so the way I see it, it could be anywhere from Novemeber-January. If it got delayed until the end of Dec. or early January, that would not be good.......at all.
So which will be first Duke Nukem Forever or GT5?? Wow, 2 months ago, GT5 was a cert and DNF was still in no man's land - youch. r.
They said before Christmas, so the new release date will be between November 2nd and December 24th.
they just want it closer to the holiday season...although they may say its "for fixed" or wtv, I'm pretty sure its merely marketing above anything else.
What are the PS3 exclusives to look forward to this holiday season?
@otherZinc when's 'Gears of War 3' coming out again???
Try and act like COD and MoH don't release on PS3 too. There are plenty of great games to play this holiday. Having games pushed back into 2011 only makes Sony's 2011 that much stronger while 360 is left with Gears 3 and kinect titles for the entire year.
I know what you’re saying there is nothing for the PS3 before Xmas which is going to hurt them if they dont get GT5 out before xmas. MS have already got Reach out plus Fable 3 at the end of the month then they have Kinect with the 15 games to pick for it. Sony could start to lose out again in the sales because of this. I was not going to Pick MoH up this week because of getting GT5 in Nov but now its been put back ive pre ordered it. My PS3 this year has been played on so little its a shame but then again in sure with the games coming out next year it will get turned on a lot more.
Yeah have fun with those. We all lose there.
Well, there you have it. The pre-orders don't lie, NOBODY cared about GT. It's amazing graphics and physics and...well...lets be fair, With Halo Reach, Forza CE, and Fable laying the smack down. COD:black ops looking INCREDIBLE and Kinect's shocking pre-order rise, Sony had no choice. LBP, GT, so-com...what Sony is saying is that they can't compete...sad really. I know we will here the spin doctors tell us how the PS3 is the system to own but it sure wasn't the system to own in 2010. Sony can only run so far. Sooner or later they will have to stand up and fight. I hope the gaming media pays attention to this. M$ is the only guys that care this holiday and the entire year. Mass Effect Metro 2033 Alan Wake Crackdown 2 Halo Reach Fable 3 New 360 S Kinect Windows 7 phone PC gaming Halo Reach started the party this holiday. Fable 3, Kinect, Windows phone 7...they are the only one's keeping gaming relevant this year. Sony should be ashamed of themselves. I wonder if 2011 will be full of delays as well, as USUAL!!!
@ InTheKnow " Mass Effect Metro 2033 Alan Wake Crackdown 2 Halo Reach Fable 3 New 360 S Kinect Windows 7 phone PC gaming " FIXED: Mass Effect Metro 2033 Alan Wake Crackdown 2 Halo Reach Fable 3
since its still releasing this holiday season wow people just do not know how to read
Gears of War 3 has ALWAYS been a 2011 scheduled launch. OtherZinc is asking about "this holiday season" being 2010. Try and keep up.
Well SOCOM was delayed but it was a bit of a surprise announcement and early release anyway. However, GT5 has already been in the pot a long time - you have to wonder if Polyphony really have the resources to complete games in a reasonable timescale now - this is costing them and Sony a lot of money (and alienating previous fans into the bargain). I guess we'll see what this delay is like - the original Russian source said a couple of weeks so not a major problem, but it doesn't say much of PDs project management capabilities.... r.
if it comes before Christmas I'm fine with it
They will continue delaying it until they fix all the bugs and glitches which means it won't even come out since EVERY game has some bugs which aren't fixable. They are just making fans sad. :( Just release the game. Even in this stage it's sure better than all the other racing games out there...
Then what will your opinion be?
UPDATE: Here's SCEE's statement, which looks the same as the US one: "We are sorry to say that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available on the previously announced release date of November 3rd, but the game will be released before Christmas. We sincerely apologise to GT fans for the delay, however creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating a racing experience of the highest quality. We are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches later this year. We'll have more information for you in the near future." So a few extra weeks ain't to bad
GT5 Delayed? Well I never... I wouldn't of expected this in a million years I mean we only had the demo back in early 2008 hopefully we see the full game by 2011 xD.
It's that this could be the biggest ammunition haters could use. Not to mention they can ACTUALLY (I can't believe I'm saying this) use the term "delays" <--- plural now. Just think what 1 delay just did for GT5, I really can't imagine the raging fire we're going to go through after that! First LBP2, NOW this? Ironically, I had them BOTH at pre-ordered at Amazon. I may have to cancel and re-pre-order the game in case they may pull off some crazy shenanigans like charging my credit card on fricken Nov 02. I hate to admit it, but SONY is really losing their nuts here and there. (I really hope this has NOTHING to do with COD:BO, using that INSTEAD of GT5 as a system seller.) -End statement
I AM SO F**KING MAD NOW!!
Aww this really blows. Sony just knows how to f*** up don't they? Just release the darn game already. This will make people cancel their prorders for something else i'm telling you. Edit: Que the hate mails boyz lol. As much as i love my ps3, it's official earned the notorious name "DelayStation". WTF! Sony?
Bought a G27 and 4 days later they delay the game. AWESOME.
after i finished defending them in other threads.. i give up..
PS3 is really getting dick smacked with delays for its exclusives this year, well this holiday season to be exact.
FFS just release it. It can't be fúcking better than it allready is. Release it!
What im not crying lol something is in my eyes.
Remember! Sony decides when Christmas will take place!
That post is classic!
This is retarded. :(
they should have never announced any official release date until the game was 100% finished
WTF! we should get full damage in every single car for this, a demo as well maybe:(.
Are you f*****g kiddin me!?
Wasnt the PS3 supposed to have gazillions of 1st party exclusives dis year ? I can only think of 2: Gow3 and Heavy Rain. Maybe 3 if Gt5 comes out in 2010...kind of dissapointing I say.
So now it's delayed in Russia, Europe and the US. Does the delay have anything to do with GT5s minor technical issues or is it a shipping problem? edit @PirateThom: Worldwide? And no reasons have been given so far? I see a early 2011 release for some reason.
Worldwide, Japan is stung as well. No one knows what the issue is, but it's inexcusable.
Releasing a game that is not up to par with Poly's own personal level of quality is what would be excusable. Given the explination, a few weeks extra to the release is an inconvinience at best. We'll live.
it's because of Black Ops... Blame it on Activision...
A sad sad day for Racing fans and gamers alike. This game was pretty much the only reason I bought a PS3 for so I'm not very happy :(
I bet Yamauchi is extremely stressed over releasing this game. The hype around the game and expectations must be driving him nuts to make it perfect.
There is no such thing as a perfect game, so if he is indeed aiming to make GT5 "perfect" we will never get the game. At all. Ever.
God dam it, not again. Why don't they just patch what they couldn't finish in time
Why its because it's Sony. We are not talking Gears 2 here.
Sony should just come out and say we have no idea when GT5 is coming out!!!! BC a game like GT5 should have no reason to get delayed just a couple of weeks b4 it was supposed to get released.
Just paid for my flight to Japan - I WILL HAVE A WORD WITH THEM!!!
Release a surprise Demo already and redeem yourselves ,god this sucks
Can't say I didn't expect it...
Might aswell release it as a launch title for PS4 seriously.... a big FUCK YOU to the ppl eagerly anticipating and got their hopes up for nov.2 that has been long term GT5. @squelchy wat are you talking about? Im no troll well my post might came across as trolling to you but I never trolled any SONY related stuff IM A PS3 fan I HAVE GT5 pre ordered you can even check my post history(all pro playstation). Im just upset with this stupid delays.
I have to agree that it is a kick in the Teeth.
it's alright better Release it at christmas for better sales!!!
A sad, sad day.. at least PD and Yamauchi should tell us WHY they delay it!!
I dont want a broken game at launch, i remember heavy rain, I WAS THIS CLOSE TO FINDING THE ORIGAMI KILLER but then the game wouldnt work until like a month after. i hope this is the reason GT5 is delayed
That must have been your copy.
it wasnt. no way in hell it wasnt just mine. look it up. MANY people had problems
The game is a joke now, it's lost all credibility. Like Sony and PS3. All of them are a joke and need to die.
The trolls are out in full force on Kotaku, prepare for troll defense!
I hate to sound like a fanboy but - and for the sake of hopefully a new openzone - hehe... DelayStation.
Holy Sh!t! Am I the only person who didn't realise the lack of the Openzone on the new N4G?
I think this is one of the reasons NOT to preorder games! Admittedly I'm a little pissed at this...but not as pissed as my friend who has actually booked the week of November 2nd off work to play this!!! WWIII's gonna break out when I tell him tonight!
I just heard, apparently Kazunori Yamauchi looked at a couple of headlights and wanted to render them again in higher detail.
the day this game gets released there will be a court hearing in the supreme court to prove it's existence,there will be disbelief all over
