Anton Chigurh2950d ago (Edited 2950d ago )

Buy Gran Turismo 5.

I can't wait

visualb2950d ago

great news

[email protected] everyone who thought it was releasing next year xD

joydestroy2949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

hot pursuit comes with a $20 amazon credit. then you could sell it for $30 and end up playing it for a blockbuster rental price so not sure why people wouldn't jump on that deal

i'll be playing them both. 360 and PS3 will get some racing love this month!

Anarki2949d ago

When will these people realize that the world expands further than America... When will it launch in EUROPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bereaver2949d ago

Is there anyway in hell that it won't sell out coming at this time of the month?

WinterWolf2949d ago

I can't believe the big day is so close. I haven't been waiting with this much anticipation since my PS2 days.

I knew it was going to be released before 11/26/10 because of Black Friday here in the US. Sony and Polyphony were NOT going to miss that date for maximum impact on sales (not only GT5 but also PS3's). I have been saying this for quite a while since it just made sense...common sense actually.

Either way I cannot wait! I knew an announcement was imminent so much so that I prepped my Obutto Chassis (with G25) just yesterday and ordered an additional base plate so I can modify/make my pedals upside down (proper). Hopefully I will have the time to do so before the release date though I probably wont be able to. Doesn't matter though, the stock setup is all ready to go (check the attached pics!).

Acquiescence2949d ago

to go along with Epic Mickey, The Sly Collection, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Sonic Colours.


And yes, a pox on the naysayers who claimed it wouldn't be out this year. I bet this news has dampened your spirits now hasn't it, muwahahahahaha!

jeseth2949d ago

I got my Best Buy pre-order update email today !!!

It is destiny.

nix2949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

and i agree to every one here!!! q:

Sarcasm2949d ago

2 days before black friday. Genius. Cant f'n wait aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hh

Zeevious2949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

Next you'll explain the world isn't even flat!


(Hey, a sacrifice worked last time...that's how I got us the 24th release date!)

wsoutlaw872949d ago

so wheres all the people that said theyd bet money it wouldn't be out this year

darthv722949d ago

I will be camping that week. I will just have to take my chance there will be a copy for sale when I get back saturday.

I will also miss out on all the HEAT this game will generate when it EXPLODES on N4G.

I have just one request..please, someone keep me in the loop with PM's to the juicy articles where it gets really good.

R0me2949d ago

Hey dont worry europeans. I got email from amazon germany saying it will arive on november 24th 2010.
Great news worldwide!!!

Proxy2949d ago

Please forgive my abuse of the reply system.

I wanted to ask if anyone know how saves from GT5 Prolog will affect GT5 Proper?

Hideo_Kojima2949d ago

I just bought inFamous for £7 today...

It will keep me occupied for 11 days.
After that I will put all my games away and spend my time at home on The Real Driving Simulator.

N4WAH2949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

More like the people that were hoping it would release next year. If you know what I mean. I don't think any GT or PS3 consumers thought it was getting bumped to 2011.

With that lame nonsense out of the way. I now know how much time I have to get my pod together and mount my new seat. The only thing that sucks for me is it's the day before Thanksgiving and we have a ton of people coming over. They probably wont mind watching me play turn some laps in GT5.

zag2949d ago

That's why he said PAL areas too.

So it'd be 25th in some PAL areas as PAL covers most of the world.

Sayai jin2949d ago

@Anton Chigurh - Why would I sell any of my consoles. Gran Turismo is an AWESOME series, but I am not really into racing games.

Hell yeah!!! I can have a merry xmas now!

newflesh2949d ago

I wish I was as happy as all of you, but I just don't care about racing games..

WinterWolf2949d ago

This isn't a racing game, it is a real driving simulator :P

No but seriously, I can't wait, it is going to be awesome!

Hideo_Kojima2949d ago

You mean you don't like cars...
Well your a minority in the male population.

LordMarius2950d ago

Best Thanksgiving incoming :D

morganfell2950d ago

Exactly what I was hoping to hear. That way we have it before Thanksgiving and do not have to punch people on Black Friday.

I have 2 Collector's Editions pre-ordered (one is a present) coming and plan on pulling a 24 hour race that weekend.

What a great present for Festivus.

RedDead2950d ago (Edited 2950d ago )

Earlier than expected...sort of. But Finally! 12 days and it's mine.

Need a recommendation though, is the Driving force GT a good Wheel? Is it worth getting instead of a G27 as an attempt to save money? Big differance in price, I know the wheel is supposed to be good but how does it compare to the G27? Or even G25

ryuzu2950d ago

I have a g25 AND A g27 - the difference between these two is subtle but the G25 is no longer available from Logitech so you'll need to find old stock or a used one. However the G25 will probably be a bit cheaper as a result.

The DFGT I've not tried but I did have a Driving Force Pro which is its forerunner. The DFP was a good wheel/pedal combo, albeit with only two "flimsy" pedals and a sequential shifter.

The problem is while the G27/25 have a nice H-shifter and 3 sturdy metal pedals, I don't know as yet how well that stuff will work with GT5 so the extra money may be a waste.

In terms of the wheel, I've only heard comments saying the DFGT is smaller and flimsier feeling that the G27/25 but then again it's a fair bit cheaper too so that's to be expected.

Try one in a store if you can!


stevenhiggster2950d ago

I have the DFGT and can report that it is awesome. I havent ever tried a G25 or 27 so cant comment on how much better they might be but I can assure you you wont be disappointed with a DFGT, it is afterall the wheel that was developed purely for GT5.

jony_dols2949d ago

I read an interview with Kazunori Yamauchi a few months back, and he said that GT5 will support all the features on the G27.

So I have just ordered my G27 and I have my GT5 collectors edition booked as well.

Can't friggin wait!

acky12949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

...out on my birthday :D

too bad I suck at GT so ain't getting it lol

Dude Dutch2950d ago

This sooooooooooooooooooo funny, almost wet myself laughing. Thnx for posting this.

On topic: Yehaaa the wait is almost over !!!!


Blinding_Solo2950d ago

Sorry this just made my horrible day better! Going to get my check from work and pre- order this heaven made game. WWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOO

Chug2950d ago

Wonder if I should cancel my NFS pre-order.

UltimateIdiot9112949d ago

Depends on your budget and time. I end up not preordering NFS for 2 reason:

1)None of my friends care for NFS anymore or simply not interested in the genre.
2)The demo felt lacking.

As a result, I ended up buying MAG and waiting on GT5.

jjohan352949d ago

I just canceled my NFS Hot Pursuit pre-order. I felt really bad doing so because I honestly wanted the game but cannot justify buying two racers within a week apart. And between the two, I'd pick GT5 any day. I feel bad for Criterion Games though since all the reviews are suggesting that this is the best NFS game in the franchise so far. And it seemed that Criterion really did put a lot of innovative thought in the competition of the game.

Oh well, too bad. It's GT5. 'Nuff said. ;-)

Chug2949d ago

I also can't justify buying another racer along side GT5 even though NFS is shaping up to be a solid game. Also, time is an issue for me. I'm busy enough juggling New Vegas and COD BO at the moment.

BTW, I love Amazon. I have $50 of credit so I'm getting GT5 for $10, and then they're giving me $10 for GT5 pre-order!!!

Dee_912949d ago

im still getting both
just wont play nfs as much lol

Peppino72950d ago

It's about time. Hopefully they Sony starts promoting it so they have a great Black Friday to start off the sales. It's only 2 weeks so they should start soon. Kevin Butler should be enough to do it! :) And maybe 500 million ad dollars /s(last part)

Moentjers2949d ago

the minutes after the release date was confirmed, the www just slowed down recovering from the shock :-)

NeoBasch2949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

The day before Black Friday? Oh boy, things are going to get pretty crazy real soon here. That's easily the best day to release any product this time of year. This game is going to generate some mad sales. o_O

daylo2949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

I sold my 360 yesterday! Best decision I hever made!!!

Canas20102949d ago

Welcome to the Dark side my friend.

EVILDEAD3602949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

Before Black Friday..Sony listened..this is HUGE news!!

I honestly feel for Need for Speed..the original release date was well out of GT5's so much..EA just let out a collective OUCH

Damn you I got to rush and buy that wheel..can't play the mother of racers with the DS3 alone..

Great news for gamers...


raztad2949d ago

"Sony listened"

Actually I dont think Sony set this date because user feedback.

"I honestly feel for Need for Speed"

Me too. Kinda unfair for Criterion/EA. NFS:HP is looking brilliant, it deserves good sales.

EVILDEAD3602949d ago

Whether they listened or 'recognized' that releasing GT5 before Black Friday in the states was pretty huge..especially after the first rumor of it dropping Nov. 30th..

Great news regardless..

rekonizakilla2949d ago

I got 2 weeks off work from the 15th.
that gives me just under a week of some hot sticky gt5 action

mugoldeneagle032949d ago

I have 15 days to play Black Ops, finish New Vegas, and complete my season on NHL 11.

GT5 FUCK YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tacosRcool2949d ago

This time I will actually preorder it! Sony don't fail me now!

N4Great2949d ago

If you want to smile a little with another xfanboyz fail, read some "old" (1, 2 months) articles.

"it only does delays"

Highatus2949d ago

Now my wait falls on, those 3 days after release will kill me. I won't leave my front door.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2949d ago (Edited 2949d ago )

Biggest title this year, not even COD is near to the most anticipated Real Driving Simulator.

Jamegohanssj52949d ago

Guess who called it : v )


vhero2949d ago

But when is the 360 version out :p Nah just kidding nice to get a date though even though we already kinda knew it, it's nice to be official now time for LBP.

KiLLUMiNATi_892949d ago

Man about time, this is the best news n4g had so far in weeks.

MmaFanQc2949d ago
