The US retailer gamestop is listing Gran Turismo 5 for next year. Gamestop is showing January 1st as release date.
January 1st is a saturday.
If what sony and PD are saying is correct this game wont slip into 2011. It would be poor move on their part for sure.
It WILL be released before Christmas. There's no way Sony will lose out on all those sales.
Wow...dumbasses...its a place holder date. Its coming this year for sure.
Until then me and you let's get to "work"!
It will most likely release in 2011... I've played this series since the first one, I've seen this happen time and time again, and so did you guys. Plyphony, at its best=/
Polyphony had nothing to do with it. They pretty much finished the game, but Sony wanted to have every game after October be updated to the new SKU. Which PD now had to change. They missed the production window by 3 days, so now the next release window is 3 weeks or so from the original date. http://www.gtplanet.net/ps3...
But is is a 2011 placeholder date. Gamestop does NOT ever delay a game from the Holiday season until the next year unless they are absolutely sure about it which means having confirmation from someone at Sony in this case. Gamestop is all about getting preorders, and u dont do that by displaying a 2011 placeholder date if the game has any chance at all of coming out this year. This means that Gamestop got direct confrimation from someone at Sony that the game will NOT be out this year.
I'm not even going to start on this one but that's the biggest bs I've read in a long time.
Most big retailers had 2009 release date which wasn't even confirmed by anyone. So this 2011 date could easily be another mistake.
until it's officially released before calling anything BS shall we?
they would release it at the latest around Christmas time
Tuesdays are release days
Are Gamestop now the authority figure in release dates? Are we all to bow to the mighty knowledge and great honesty of retail outlets?? This "article" is worthy of an employed/paid persons time??? Gaming journalism has truely lost its way...
I can't take this anymore I have never felt this way about a game. I have never felt so anxious before about a game comming out. Maybe It's a sign I'm addicted to games and I need to get out more lol
sad thing is by the time you relise this it just may be too late honestly I am addicted to reading about this game
Lol I think ur right I hear u brother :)
If it makes you feel any better, I've spent about $500 on this game (G27 and collectors edition) LOL Sometimes I don't even believe myself :S
I'm sure it's 2010 too they said we will not be waiting long.
Delaying this to 2011 would be a big mistake - and not just because of GT5 fans. Sony's 2011 lineup is too crowded anyway, ideally GT5, LBP2 and Socom 4 should all have been out this year.
having LBP 2, inFAMOUS 2, SOCOM 4, Killzone 3 all out before March; Thats alot to cram into a couple months.
So after this news who have not exclusive for the rest of the year?
What news this is pure BS, come back and spout that crap when we know for real.
Nope, this was the only PS3 exclusive until the year's end I can think of. And I can't remember what was the last exclusive, really.
God of War 3? Sounds like a dry half for 2010 on all consoles. Xbox 360 did get Halo: Reach and soon Fable 3 though!
It's been pushed back constatnly for years now. If it isn't comming in November than screw it. I will not buy it. They are not going to monkey around with me like that. They should make up their minds and tell us the truth about the release date. I will be playing NFS anyways.
When it comes out as if your not going to buy it. u will cave in lol
Also to be honest I was never a huge GT fan but I always purchased at least 1 GT game /gen. But it's not that important. Also, I'm more of an arcade racer fan than a simulator racer fan. I love Burnout Paradise and in my opinion it is the greatest racing game ever made. But that is just my opinion.
Mary my words, Sony is going to release this game on December 31st, at exactly 11:59:59 PM...just to make sure it releases in 2010.
...I disagree *peels out* :P.
For all the bashing on the lack of Microsoft games this year, looks like they have the last laugh. I called this way back when they announced the Release date for GT5. Canceled my pre order as well. GT has lost all relevance in the racing sim world anyway with games like Forza, which features real time damage as opposed to paint scratch damage ect... GG Sony. Way to get less pre-orders then Kinect Adventures...lol
Less Exclusives? Hmmm MAG, MLB, GOW3, Mod Nation, Heavy Rain, and GT5. Vs Reach, Alan Wake, Crackdown 2,Fable??? Have fun with your imaginary PS3.
you forgot Yakuza 3 and 3d Dot Heroes Not that it matters.
fable 3 is also on the pc,so that's: MAG, MLB 10, GOW3, Mod Nation, Heavy Rain, yakuza 3, 3d dot game heroes, demon's souls(in europe),atelier rorona,White Knight Chronicles and GT5 VS reach,alan wake,crackdown 2
MAG, MLB, GOW3, Mod Nation, Yakusa 3, White Knight Chronicles, Heavy Rain. Reach, Splinter Cell Conviction, Alan Wake, Crackdown 2, Reach, Fable 3. Fixed. The X360 exclusives in 2010 are still better
Also yakuza 3, white knight, Demon souls, 3d dot game heros
Splinter Cell Conviction,Fable 3 are also on pc,u have mentioned reach twice
LOL! Tried anything he could to extend the list I guess. I can almost choke on the irony and hypocrisy of people that find humor or reason to criticize over the delay of GT5. Funny how quickly it's forgotten that Alan Wake, Splinter Cell, Crackdown 2, Mass Effect 2 were all 2009 releases that were "delayed" until 2010. If not for them being bumped, 2010 would have been the year of Reach. Then again 2009 would have been a good year for the 360 instead of the below average year it actually was. Forza 3 was the only game I really enjoyed from 09 on the 360. So yeah, I wouldn't bring up delays if I was a 360 only consumer. I just showed you 4 on your console from this year and let's not forget GeoW3 has already been delayed from 1st quarter 2011 to near the end of the year (2011). Delays a part of the industry, period. Trying to make it into something it's not only to back your own personal agenda is juvenile at best. <-This comment is to all that do this.
Last Rebellion Thats another one in 2010
LMAO at you, forza? real time damage? forza uses texture swapping for damage, go back under you bridge, how has gt lost its relevance if prologe sold more than any other racer this gen?
I myself am a huge fan of Forza and there is no denying that is exactly what Turn 10 uses for damage. You can run head on into a wall at speeds nearing 200mph and only lose a bumper and some paint chips on the hood. If you crash into a wall at that speed for real? Well let's just say, RACE OVER. It's silly listening to people arguing over damage in these games. Then again, the majority of the people that do argue over it don't touch any of these games. They just want to stir the pot and start shit.
Umm I think you have that backwards @0oAngeluso0. http://www.youtube.com/watc... At most you lose a front bumper. Crashing head on at 60mph, your whole hood would be pushed up and bent. 40mph crash...60mph you wouldn't live. Not a head on crash at least. http://www.youtube.com/watc... This is real-time damage. And I will admit neither Forza nor GT has the best. That would be either Dirt 2 or Burnout Paradise. (Skip to 1:22 for damage) http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Forza4 will be out before GT5, im sure GT5 was ment to come out at the same time as Froza2 back in 2007. Im sick of waiting for this game, its doing my head in GIVE ME GT5 NOW
Cause we can help you with that.
ignore it, mark as troll and move on friends.
applegate, is that you in that pic?
he wish he looked like his avatar.
It's McLovin from the movie Superbad :)
1 January the 90% Markets in the World are Closed!.. Hahaha LOLLLL GS Fails....!
IGN says NOV 4th
the delay was no more than a few days to patch it so that you need firmware v3.50. I get it. jeez whats with all the idiots coming out.
GS don't know shit. Even Sony don't know when units will be ready. My prediction: end of november
That's clearly a placeholder date if you ask me. Look at a lot of retailers. They put placeholder dates for games that are far from release.
Agreed, Saw a versus XIII date way back on 07 on GAME lol
LOL stop whining already, PD said they missed their deadline by 3 days. If you really beleive someone from gamestop over the guy at the helm...well I pity you. The game will be here in 2010. Its still possible to be here in November too, but December at the very latest. You can say it will get pushed back again but at the end of the day, Its impossible for them to even cram a years worth more work on the disc. Besides they arent even going to have the funds to pay out for another years production until they start getting some more profits again
I hope you're right but they're not the only retailer listing that, Game in the UK are listing January too. Last week nobody expected another delay so I'm not that hopeful about getting the game this year anymore...
play and amazon have date to be confirmed. so 2 against 2. As no date is confirmed I'd go with amazon and play been right and gamestop and game making dates up at this moment.
game in the uk has it down for december not jan, just looked 5 secs ago
It was only delayed 3 dayS lol , gamestop fail Like always
It's marketing and avoiding other releases that is the issue since it might get too close to other releases. Even though GT5 and CoD: Black Ops isn't the same genre, if I were Sony I would want to avoid releasing my my game right next to CoD too!
If I had to guess I'd say the game will be out between the week of black friday and the second week of December.
Probably get pushed out to February-March. It seem all of Sony's biggest games get released during February-March. Heavy Rain, KillZone 2 and even God of War 3 was released during that time frame.
the delay is only 3 days or something?
I have seen other games in the past with dates like that, its because they dont know the exact date. Im sure it will be before christmas, it would be crazy not to have out for the holidays. $$$$$$$
Eh I just got back from Gamestop and the guy said it's just a place holder and they believe it'll be out by christmas.
Do I believe a place holder.......or do I listen to the company saying its coming before 2011 hmmm I talked to a guy at gamestop too and its coming before christmas
i'm lucky that i have a 360 too because i'll be playing next months reach, Fable3 and kinect but what exclusive will you play PS3 owners?
GT5...Have fun on Kinectimals though
sly cooper collection,gt 5, we had atelier rorona in september and then lpb 2 in january..... Yeah have fun with your casual broken stuff
Buying Fable 3, COD Black Ops, Fallout 3, Vanquish, and Kinect for the remainder of the year for my X360. For my PS3, Toy Story 3 Blu Ray.
