Gran Turismo 5- Will It Be Worth The (5 years) Wait?

GB writes: "The Gran Turismo series has had quite a run. With four nigh perfect titles in the canon franchise, and a decent PSP spin off, any upcoming game bearing the name of Gran Turismo would be very highly regarded, and quite frankly, a lot would be expected of it. Obviously, a lot is expected of Gran Turismo 5, the upcoming GT title, the first ever to hit the PS3, if you do not count the previously released uninspiring demo, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue. Gran Turismo 5 itself has quite a history."

i dont understand how this waiting thing works. do these guys think we just sit at home, do nothing and wait for this game for five years. no. shit happens in those 5 five years. i am not happy that its delayed, but what can i do? its not like i tell them to hurry up. i am not angry, because i am not actually waiting.

Negative publicity can be good for builds up curiosity, media coverage and anticipation.. it'll turn out good regardless

RankFTW3294d ago

I've been sat at home just waiting :(.

Plus I'd rather they delay it to make it the best that it can be, because the way it stands now it pretty much destroys the competition! But really really is anyone surprised. GT5 is just like wine & cheese it gets better with age.

ALICE6663294d ago

No of course we can't do anything about the delay BUT we can let them know there are alot of pissed off fans out there right now.

Hopefully this will cause them to get their fukn shit together and do everything in their power to get it out soon without further delay or suffer another huge backlash.

Was anyone waiting GT5 to be released on the PS2? the PS3 is not 4 years old.

Si-Fly3294d ago (Edited 3294d ago )

It was announced in 2006 dumbass.

On point, it will be worth the wait trust me, I'm a doctor ;)

raztad3294d ago (Edited 3294d ago )


You can save your insults dude.

The only thing announced in 2006 was GTHD

" Kazunori Yamauchi, the director of every game in the series presented the demo, which has only been in development for a few weeks, uses Gran Turismo 4's in-game assets, and was running in 1080p."

Furthermore even if the game was announced in 2006, it doesnt equate 5 years, or does it? smart ass? and what made things worse, being announced in 2006 with only concept demo to show, means the game will be ready 1.5 years later (the sooner) = late 2007 or 2008.

BTW I'm a doctor.

"At Sony's press conference this evening, we were shown a number of tracks from the upcoming Gran Turismo 5."
This is what the is written in the very beginning of the article. :s
Learn to read properly. :)

raztad3294d ago (Edited 3294d ago )

To me that read as writer's assumptions. Of course you can say everybody expected GT5 to appear at some point, but truth is GT5 wasnt announced at E3 2006.

E3 2007 was the first time GT5 was announced in the form of GT5 Prologue,

"This short version title is a precursor and sampling of Polyphony Digital's planned Gran Turismo 5 and replaces Gran Turismo HD Concept."

You may very well take that advice for yourself, and of course do your own research.

Si-Fly3294d ago

Considering the ps3 was released in 2006, yes it is 4 years old, I guess your phd didn't have mathematics as a module. And as GT HD was announced at the start of 2006 technically we've been waiting close to 5 years for a proper PS3 version of Gran Turismo.

Apology accepted in advance.

raztad3294d ago (Edited 3294d ago )

Nope sorry. I'm just being rigorous :)

"The PlayStation 3 was first released in Japan on November 11, 2006 at 07:00"

"The PlayStation 3 was launched in United States on 17 November 2006"

2007 in EU and other territories.

This is just details. I believe GT5 will be an incredible game. The wait time is always exaggerated when talking about GT5, dunno why, perhaps is the fanbase just impatient to play it.

I mean how can you be waiting for close to 5 years, when you didnt have a PS3 at this time 4 years ago?

EDIT: Wanted to say that probably it is just me having a hard time grasping the idea of waiting for an announced game on an unreleased console.

I bought a 3DTV just for this, waiting for the release.

gameseveryday3294d ago

what? a 3d TV just for a game? Oh common you gotta be kidding. Between GT5 looks absolutely spectacular in 3d. But i had to kept my eyes close after just 30 mins of playS

Odin7773294d ago

Oh lay off of him, he can buy whatever he wants.

Boody-Bandit3294d ago (Edited 3294d ago )

I know plenty of people that have spent a lot of cash just for one game, myself included. I spent a ton of cash this gen to enhance immersion for gaming.

jizzyjones3294d ago

OBVIOUSLY, its not Alan Wake

Chuk53294d ago

Alan Wake didn't even have an ocean of hype behind it. GT5 and alan wake are on completely different wave lengths.

coolbeans3294d ago (Edited 3294d ago )

But...that was worth the wait as well. :S Oh wait, this is just trolling.

jizzyjones3294d ago

Us bitter ps3 owners need something to laugh at with these delays.
