2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in GT5 – Click above for high-res image gallery

Guess what? Puxatony Phil saw his shadow and Sony announced another delay for Gran Turismo 5 in the same week. Oh, the irony. In an interview with Spanish site Canarias Al Dia, CEO of Sony Entertainment Portugal James Armstrong reportedly revealed another disappointing delay for the highly anticipating driving simulation game. Armstrong allegedly said Sony is aiming to have GT5 on store shelves before Christmas, and that the "priority is to make this game with the best quality as possible." Does this mean that Sony and Polyphony Digital are struggling to work out bugs before the all-too-important game is unleashed on the consumer? It sure sounds that way.

If you're at all like us, you're wondering by now whether GT5 will ever see the light of day. The highly hyped, multi-format racing game was supposed to be released in the fall of 2009, then in March of 2010. Now we're talking sometime before December. Note to Sony and Polyphony Digital: Don't publish truck loads of teasers, videos and screen shots more than a year in advance of the big kid console version of the game finds its way onto store shelves. It's just mean.

      I will believe it when I see it. I would pay $200 for this game to have it now but they continue to make me wait. I can't take it!

      GT has been a disappointing sad attempt after 3d one, grow up people
      • 5 Years Ago
      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

      But is this really a surprise to anyone?
      Magnificent concept, great game (probably the best one ever) too bad, we'll never be able to play it...

        This always happens with Gran Turismo games, though. Gran Turismo 3 was supposed to be a launch game for the PS2 (under the name Gran Turismo 2000) but was pushed back more than a year.

        However, they never disappoint once released.

        Well except when they cut out features that really should be in there - like multiplayer and damage.

        "We kept delaying this, and we finally gave up making multiplayer work. You didn't really want it anyway, right?"

        The secret is to stop caring until a week before the official release date and just buy it when it comes out. This way you get all the enjoyment of playing the game and none of the pain from anticipation.

      Hope they are working on a version for the PS4, with how long it's taking them to finish it for the ps3, they are going to need a headstart.
      I'm well past this game, there was a time i would of purchased a PS3 specifically for it, but like any other gadget or tech, you take too long to get a game to the market and all the hype wears off and you just don't care anymore.
        • 5 Years Ago
        And yes, i know i put of where it should be "have", it was too late to fix it i already clicked post.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Well, I guess I can hold out on buying a PS3 for now. I should probably do the smart thing and spend that money on another gun instead.

      Punxsutawney. Not puxatony. You guys at AB need better editors. Lately there seems to be even more typos and errors than usual. I know it's a blog, fellas, but slow down a little bit and proofread!
