Gran Turismo 5 (GT5): PS3 Release Date Update

For those of you who are worried that Gran Turismo 5 won’t see a release on the PS3 until next year, we have some fresh details for you now which suggest that Polyphony Digital will still get the game out before the end of the year.

We’re sure you already know about the fresh delay for the game, in which Sony and PD announced that the game had been delayed for a while, although they didn’t give a new release ETA which was very disappointing.

However, as VG247 reports, PD boss Kazunori Yamauchi has made a fresh statement at SEMA, in which he informed everyone that progress is coming along nicely.

Here is what he had to say, make of it as you will: “The discs are being stamped as we speak.” This statement was accompanied by a picture of Yamauchi making a stamping gesture with his hands.

Hopefully that means that the game is 100% finished completely, and that it will be on the way to retailers soon. We’ll let you know if we get any further updates on this.

SONY owners trade in your PSP GO as it is no good to play games on as there NO!!! games for it. Trade it towards GT5 and tell S*** for brains SONY NOT to mess with a good thing. the PSP 3000 is the best thing since sliced bread! PLEAS SONY DON'T FIX IT IF IT ANTE BROKE.
Just release GT5 then patch it later, Don't levee us hanging PLEAS give a release date or lose millions of fans and possible go the way of SEGA and just make games for other consoles. We don't wont that do we?

Pick up your game Sony that's all I can say you're really starting to fail and dissapoint all your fans, your PSN Plus service is also a real dissapointment pretty much paid $80.00 for a year just to get a free Little Big Planet game worth $30.00 at EB Games.

And on that note… When is the next PSP system firmware update? The last was a year ago. Pathetic

I could have had better enterntainment on WoW on my computer than wasting money on that crap the Online Multiplayer on MOH is EPIC FAIL Also. We haven't had anything decent to… Read more »

Surely now they have begun this process they must know when it will be ready so I reckon a release date may be announced in the next couple of weeks hopefully

I especially like how they say that Yamauchi "informed everyone" and that "VG247" has brought this breaking news to us when, it was actually "Jalopnik" and only Jalopnik (who in turn informed everyone else) was informed of this news. Now that is "fresh" news.

the fact that the discs are stamped doesn't mean by far that the software is burned on them, so actually Yamauchi has said absolutely nothing
