Gran Turismo 5 Delay: Firmware 3.50 or Supply Issues?

November 2nd was a day that was etched in the mind of every PS3 racing fan, as this was the date that Sony and Polyphony Digital were to release the much-anticipated Gran Turismo 5. However, since we reported yesterday that the game has been hit with another delay, questions need answering.

OK, so we know that we have that statement, but what is the real reason? One rumor suggests that Sony is waiting until PS3 firmware update 3.50 is ready, while a recent article in The New York Times suggests there is a supply issue.

Do you think that it is possible that the delay of GT5 could be due to the fact that Sony and the developer fears piracy; so will wait until the next update becomes available?

There is no evidence of either, but all we know is some fans of the franchise have finally had enough and have canceled their pre-orders. I have yet to order mine, as I have seen in the past that these release dates come and go so often.

Have you canceled your pre-order?

    3.50 update is already out. Does this mean they know there are issues with it e.g. killing machines, stopping non sony products from working?

    The game will come out soon. Just think there is no pay day until the release. And its been what 6 years now? This game is a huge investment and im sure Sony isnt going to say well ok this can turn into Duke Nukem and we will take the loss. I myself purchased the PS3 only for this game when it was set to the last release date. I know of so many people who wont even buy a PS3 until it or the next GTA is released. Im sure Sony knows people are waiting like this to.
