PS3’s Gran Turismo 5: Release date update

We have some slightly disappointing news for Gran Turismo fans who are eagerly looking forward to the release of the fifth portion of the successful franchise, as Sony has confirmed a release date this fall for the U.S and European regions.

We say disappointing, as you all know that this game has suffered from countless delays already, so this latest setback will be no surprise to you I’m sure.

As reported from VG247, SCEE’s James Armstrong says that the game will be ready for release ‘this fall’, but failed to state exactly when in fall the game would be available.

So if you were looking forward to playing this game in the Summer, think again. Let us know your thoughts on the fall release.

The nissan Z brand are good automobiles between 91-96… I have a twin, and am an lover.. I really enjoy these Z’s. I built a discussion board for those that only own the Z32 90-96 300zx Twin Turbo. Come look at our new forum, and chat with members when you are interested.. Thanks.. Nismo-tt.com

indeed,i'm pissed of because of the amateuristic way polyphony digital is handling this issue,they better be spending all of their time in background graphics,cos face it,it sucks.
also for all the little cunts who keep cheating on cod mw2:why are you still playing this game?you have all the titles ill gotten,game over,piss of,little wankers

what a load of drivel…….they just want to make the game unbelievably awesome to justify the wait……. just hope they pull it off

Behind the scenes. The things you don't hear about – I am happy to share and give you all a proper insight what I know. I just hope this gets published for you all! The truth is – secretly, this game was heading for a total disaster before prologue was even released. In a nutshell – without naming names, the main gurus in sound design wanted bigger dollars, way before the GFC hit. Sound engineers are very under paid in this type of industry. So they ended up moving on to other and better paying projects. I don't blame them.… Read more »

we bought a ps3 just for GT5. If it wasnt ready they should'nt of spewed all this rubbish with constant release dates. I know plenty of people who have turned to Xbox and ditched there ps3 because of all of this. Its a real shame that honest, hardcore fans continue to be messed about. I think personally they've delayed for 3D, and will be the first game lauched for it. Lets just hope that they get there act together. Were losing patience, there losing fans and in the end there losing money and there reputation.

Well, yeah i'm slightly miffed that GT5 still isn't out and wont be untill nov ish ( i hope), BUT, this is gonna be the car game of the milleniuem, there is no contest between other games and GT in this genre. The depth they are going into is obviously incredible and i know that multi player used to cause polyphony a headache, and i assume it still does, so i'd rather wait for this game than a) not have multiplayer and b) not have a game that isn't all consuming, i mean, true online challenges in HD with GT… Read more »

I first brought a playstation to play the original, and have owned a ps1, ps2 and now ps3. They have delayed this game so long that I am seriously considering trading my PS3 for an Xbox and playing Forza. Its a sad day.

Coincidence that the game delay was announced just after the release of Forza don't you think? Lets hope they have decided to get rid of the childish and Infuriating collision penalties (The Real Driving Simulator?), and starting every race in 16th place – how 'Real Driving Simulator' is that? Once we've shelled out our hard-earned on the game we should be able to play it in whatever way we please, and not have to contend with virtually impossible and 'zero fun' challenges – a couple of which are included in Prologue. Still looking forward to it though, but this delay… Read more »

The overwhelming reson I bought my PS was GT. I would be more than happy if it was the ONLY game in my collection. Clocking GT takes hours upon days, upon months of dedication and when thats done, you can manifest a virtual collection of motors like your name is Mr Leno! Now, I for one wouldn,t want GT to be released before it was ready. But to keep announcing that it will be here soon and raising the expectation, only to smash our hopes into smithereens like an England World Cup dream, is making me question my loyalty towards… Read more »

hah DONT BUY AN XBOX the red ring of death will consume you! then the fixed no red ring but still broken XBOX will piss you off! i played forza its need for speed with better sound dont waste your money GT5 will be awesome, they do need to just release the damn thing because if there are minor issues that great invention that has been fixing computer games for so long is on the ps3 what is that ….. oh AN UPDATE!

Basically other manufacturers have caught and passed this franchise. I put on the prototype after playing Need For Speed: Shift and found it to be vague and slightly disappointing. Too little too late I'm afraid. It will have to be something special after all this time but I fear it will not.

the original demo when the PS3 first came out was great. all they needed was more tracks, cars, ext. and the prologue was great. i dont get it. how can it take that long??? how bullshit is that they at first decided to charge $60 for a pre-game??? and i like many other baught a brand new ps3 cause it was gonna come out in march. cmon guys…

i dont normally post on these forums…. but i just gotta put my pennies worth ….. i bought a ps3… the day they came out…. and thought.. omg… cant wait to get gt5….. 3 yrs on….. im still waiting….. and then when i logged onto Play.com last week,, to order it for the 10, 3, 10, release…. to find it had been put back yet again till nov 10… was the last straw…. ive always been a manic gt fan … and have been what u might call a loyal station man. but sony must realise theres only so much… Read more »

For gods sake announce a launch date and stick to it. They are making a rod for their own backs here. By repeatedly delaying it they are going to raise expectations beyond what they are capable of delivering. The technology is available so we can update it as needed.

I really think this is pure crap. I've bought and played every single GT game and everytime it was something new and great. But the thing with gt5 is that we dont know anything about the game apart from a few screenshots and the odd video. I think im just going to buy forza. It looks fun and atleast i havent got to wait. I really hope polyphony make this game worth the wait but i highly doubt it. Peace

is this a horrible joke!?? I've waited in vane for just about every gt release. pissed off is an understatement. these guys are a joke. and as far as acommodating a few rednecks who will most likely not even purchase gt anyway I'd like to say to hell with them. there are no gt fans who cares about going around in circles, truley. all they have to do is ask a dedicated fan such as myself. if they want more fans to pick up the game they should add a formula 1 section. that would be a great reason in… Read more »

I know that i cant tell you what to do but i think you should at least try the Nascar section of the game. you never know, you might actually like it. also it will increase the sales by alot due to there not being a new nascar this year.

Dan
Dan

Don't know if it's true that they've delayed AGAIN!!!! because of Nascar. I sincerely hope not as like previously commented on Nascar is s**t and only red neck hicks who live in trailors are going to bother playing that section! Immagine wanting to complete the whole game and having to sit through the boredom of doing the Nascar races just to do so! I Bought my PS3 in April '07 and have become sick of waiting for this game to arrive since it was announced. I now really couldn't care less when it comes out and after waiting for this… Read more »

I THINK THAT THIS GAME WILL NEVER GET RELEASED THE WAY THING ARE GOING, THAT ABOUT THE 5TH 6TH TIME THE ITS BEEN DELAYED AND FOR WHAT REASON?

THE DAY THE GAME COMES OUT I WILL PROBABLY BE TALKIN TO MY GREAT GRAND CHILDREN ABOUT HOW IT WAS DUE IN MY TIME.

I contacted ”GTPlanet” because they always have the newest and latest videos of GT5, and i asked them – == ”What is the sound like because from the videos i’ve seen, the sound doesn’t seem much different from the Prologue” their reply was ”’The sound will different, but there WILL NOT be much of an improvement over Prologue”’ THIS IS SERIOUSLY BAD NEWS. Forza sounds awesome with the Astros headset on, an GT5 will sound garbage in comarison.

I guess that by now they might be developing a 3D add-on to it but with PSN, would it not be better to release the initial product and then keep on updating the game through PSN? We can play with regular cars and wait for Nascar when its done…
At least we can start to get used to the top gear track.

I purchased my PS3 just to play GT5 and since I became tired of playing prologue loooooooong ago I have even put it back in its box. If the delay is because of adding NASCAR to the game then I am FREAKING PI**ED OFF!!! Who wants to go around in circles!! Using game space for circle tracks that I wont play instead of adding more REAL tracks is an outrage! Let them make a separate game for the NASCAR fans! How much of the game will be NASCAR? If its more than two tracks and a few cars it will… Read more »

If they continue to add new cars (which they will!) it will be delayed again and again. Fall 2010!?! Pipe dreams I tell ya, pipe dreams!

I heard tha forza sound tested with stock exhaust and with a staght pipe on every single car. That’ll be cool if gran turismo did that so that my 69 camaro won’t sound like my 300zx! And they should make it so you could customize you car or at least paint them.. what they should have done is put gt4 on ps3 on that u can at least add nitrous and put an over sized spoiler. I simply won’t be satisfied until I can swap a corvette ls9 into my 69 camaro. The only good news I’ve read on the… Read more »

Who cares when it arrives? When it does it’s going to be amazing (and perfect). Perfection takes time. Polyphonic, take as long as it needs. I don’t want rushed out crap, that is for Xbox owners..

How many years has the PS3 been out now? And still no full version of a Gran Turismo game available yet? Sure the prologue has been out for quite awhile now, but that doesn’t even count. Wouldn’t you think GT5 would have been in development back before the PS3 iself was released, so they could release the game shortly after the system? I remember back when the PS2 was first released GT3 came out right away…they should have planned this better and done the same here. I really hope they don’t change too much of the “bones” of the game… Read more »

this is absolutely ridiculous, fans have waited long enough. Sure, polyphony digital are known for postponeing and delaying but there comes a point where excitement turns to resentment.

I think they’ll release it before Fall (Autumn) I think May… but they wont release a concreat date until all the sales calm down from heavy rain and GOW 3… I think it would be bad for sony to tell people that it will be release shortly after those games, as some people would put off buying them to wait a little for GT5… plus they release it after April it falls into the 2010 business year and will give them a great start instead of adding to an already great 2009 profits. Thats my point of view
