Gran Turismo 5: UK / US Release Date Delay – Reasons Why

Just when you thought the Gran Turismo 5 delays were well and truly over, Sony and Polyphony Digital have just dropped a bombshell, by announcing that the PS3 title will not make the November 2nd launch date.

As reported from VG247, the release delay affects gamers in the US, UK and also Japan too, so it is obviously something pretty major for the team to delay it in all regions.

As for the official statement from Sony, well read it in full below for yourself:

“We sincerely apologize to GT fans for the delay, however, creator Kazunori Yamauchi and the team at Polyphony Digital want to make certain they are creating the perfect racing experience, and we are confident that this ambitious game will exceed expectations when it launches.”

For the many that have already pre-ordered this game, we can’t imagine how you are feeling right now, especially considering the previous delays for the game. We’ve said it before, and we’ll remind you again – which big name game doesn’t get delayed for ‘quality reasons’ these days?

The good news however, is that the game will still be releasing before the end of the year, as according to Sony, it will now release sometime during the Christmas period. What are your initial thoughts on this? Are you extremely angry about this or not? You can read more on the official PS Blog here.
