Jalopnik: We just asked Kazunori Yamauchi, the father of Gran Turismo, in an interview here at SEMA, the question on everyone's minds — when will GT5 finally be released? His response: "The discs are being stamped as we speak."
big relief!! @Anton I know I will!
And I have a lot of vacation days to burn before the end of the year.
Wooooooooooo!! ABOUT DAMN TIME!! It's final!! We're getting GT5 after 5 years of waiting!
Dont be overly excited. Although i cant hold it in myself, lets wait for when they say YES it WILL come out before Black Friday. I Live in England Btw, we dont get Black Friday. But we get boxing day, exactly like black friday, but its one day after christmas. Gran Turismo 5, i shall make way for when you enter my house. I'll hoover and wash the dishes, and make sure the house is 100% clean.
INSTA 1000c !!
I would love to be wrong, but I seriously doubt that the game will be released before Black Friday. Even with the disks being stamped, Sony still has to pump out the advertising and work out the massive logistics required in shipping all of the disks to the stores. I'd say that the best bet at the moment would be early to mid December. But still, this is amazing news and pretty much dispels any worries of a 2011 release. Assuming that this news is correct, we shall all be playing GT5 in just a few short weeks! ^_^
QUIT TOYING WITH ME PD! Is it really coming out this year? I was all but convinced it would be pushed till 2011. This is the best news ever. I guess now I am finally going to have to get off my lazy ass and install my new racing seat for my pod. Gentlemen start your engines!
Hell yes! What a relief.
bu bu bu bu but Eurogamer said.. fuck Eurogamer!
My boner just exploded.
"gentlemen, start your engines!" HELL YEAH I'm gonna do that! (I own a N/A Supra). WOOT WOOT!
I'm skeptical. All these sources are low profile sites quoting the other site, which is an autoBLOG. Can they just hurry up and give official word already. JEEZ.
hahah dude you do that too...wash the dishes and clean the house. Haha I thought I was the only one that did that before I play a game I've been dying to play.
GT5 will go through the same processes every other game does...there's nothing to "work out" in terms of logistics. They just have to go through the motions. If the game is being stamped as we speak, it's entirely possible they could get it out by late November. Will they? Hard to say. As you seem to imply, they COULD hold it back for additional marketing buzz. My guess is they have all the advertising assets and TV spots ready to go as we speak, though.
This calls for "moon over the castle" to celebrate!
I can Sleep better at night.
whoever disagreed at your statement deservers to be beaten up. By me.
That would be a serious beat down.
Beaten, Beaten up.
Ahhhh I can't take it anymore ahhhhhhhh! I can't sleep at night. Always looking for any scrap of news on my iPhone before I go to bed
Thanks for the lol-worthy thread string, guys. Hahaha!
Its time ! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I just watched that whole video :) Awesome!
@FishCake9T4, What a rubbish video to honor GT5 with... God bless our troops? God Bless America? Nothing against the states, but GT isn't very americanized, and is a better game for it.
It's been so long though - I'm looking at that statement "The disks are being stamped" and wondering what that "really" means and/or what's going to go wrong next.... r.
Lol, it would be so funny if the disk stamping machine broke, resulting in a delay of about a week. Just kidding. I'm no racing fan, but I'll probably try it out.
causing the whole production to stop until that factory is rebuilt. or the computers that gt5 is stored in get burned and they have to start over
The disk being stamped could have little to do with a release date... They could still decide to hold the release for market reasons. They could hold it for a day-one patch needed to fix/unlock half the content on the disk. They could be stamping a logo on the disks, which will be later stamped with the actual content!
First of all they have off site back ups and they also have official hard copies of the gold that they keep in house.. Likelyhood of all backups being destroyed simultaneoulsy is not only far fetched but has never happened to any other game.. You are just getting people riled up for not.... Gt5 is comin hell or highwater, sony wont let this one go to waste....
YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!11 111111111111111
Spurs beating inter milan and GT5 goes gold. Is this heaven?
I Hope That Spurs Win.Anyway GT5 DAY 1!!
Chelsea must win. :P
*cough* arsenal all the way but the best part about this is that my stand for my steering wheel arrived today, and then I read this! Awesome
ASTON VILLA FTW!!! almost got it last year, once the frenchy gets his act together we will be back on track.
Houllier has no idea. He wants to sign michael owen or, failing that, robbie keane to partner emile heskey. haha, what a strike force that would be
Heskey is old and crap. Arsenal all the way. We WILL win the Premier League and Champions League. :)
Black Friday anyone? EDIT: I think I know why it took forever to be released. They had to stamp 15,000,000 disks!
If all goes well we should be seeing the game in December. Last reliable source tells me 8th for Europe.
if the dam disk were being stamped we would have a release date. If he is not lying and the disks are being stamped, then prepare for lies in the future from Sony, because they will hold off the launch for some strategic reason, bottom line is if the game is done, they should have a release date.
What is wrong with you, don't you have anything better to do? Are you afraid of GT5 or something? Don't you have a crappy rpg to play in fable 3?
I think GT5 being so close to release is driving StrikeBravo crazy. He was wishing game never come out.
dreaded the day GT5 releases, that's why Strikepackage Bravo is so upset upon hearing this great news.
I made the same comment below without reading this. I understand everyone is hyped and excited but it is unusual to have a game being pressed and not have a retail release date. He isn't saying the game sucks or that PS3 sucks just that it is strange and I agree.
Why is it so strange? They already stated that they missed their manufacturing window by 3-4 days which meant they have to start making disks and then figure out the best time to launch... Maybe they are waiting for the cod black ops madness to die off before saying anything as to not be overlooked... Gt5 is coming before january stop being so negative and maybe you would enjoy life a little more...
FU#K YEAH ~~!!
makes sense they're waiting for after the Kinect launch to announce a late november or early december release date
God cares so much about the GT fans that he is personally hand stamping each and every copy. http://cache.gawker.com/ass...
LOL, I actually laughed out loud at that and it's kinda late now, heh. Thats hilarious and fits so well too :)
you deserve a bubble + 1 hahaha
seen it on gt planet.
Hayaku Kazu-san! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Oh yea bring out the champagne! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
EB games says December 7th
Place holder, nothing more.....
who to believe the creators or 360 fans?? It's so hard!
but I am not going to get up my hopes just yet... I know SONY wants to get this out before Christmas but I want a official release date. One that I know will be official...
.... http://www.youtube.com/watc... this ^^
The game went gold a few weeks ago…
Yeah. Now it will kill the competition.
EXCUSE ME?! Are You Insane?! GT5 has to have competition to kill it!
This is it guys! I think Im going to cry
Don't laugh at him. This is serious stuff. I would give you a shoulder to cry on LordMarius but I myself will be crying too. I was hoping that today "the original official release date" would be the day we would hear some new news. This is all I need for confirmation it's coming in 2010.
