According to Sony websites Italy, Germany, Sweden and France, GT5 has been pushed back to November 26th.
Update: Update seems to be affecting almost all of continental Europe at this point. United States and the U.K. still say the 24th of November. Your best checking your regions official PS website for confirmation.
Probably distribution issues. It's only a 2 day delay. Still sucks though.
I need my GT5 in time for Thanksgiving!
uk release day is always a friday unless special reasons
so it makes sense
