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

nix3293d ago (Edited 3293d ago )

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.

T9X693293d ago

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.

ryuzu3293d ago

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.

ChronoJoe3293d ago

They said before Christmas, so the new release date will be between November 2nd and December 24th.

visualb3293d ago

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?

kaos_fish II3293d ago

@otherZinc

when's 'Gears of War 3' coming out again???

8-bit3293d ago (Edited 3293d ago )

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.

mcstorm3293d ago

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.

corneliuscrust3293d ago

Yeah have fun with those. We all lose there.

InTheKnow3293d ago (Edited 3293d ago )

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!!!

Gears of War 3 has ALWAYS been a 2011 scheduled launch.

OtherZinc is asking about "this holiday season" being 2010. Try and keep up.

ryuzu3293d ago

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....

blackmamba7073293d ago

if it comes before Christmas I'm fine with it

Shikoro3293d ago (Edited 3293d ago )

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...

corneliuscrust3293d ago

Then what will your opinion be?

Chuk_Chuk3293d ago

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

Rush3293d ago

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.

DigitalAnalog3293d ago (Edited 3293d ago )

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.)

Def Warrant3293d ago (Edited 3293d ago )

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?

Jaybad543293d ago

Bought a G27 and 4 days later they delay the game. AWESOME.

Raoh3293d ago
