Gran Turismo 5 continues to tantalize while enraging keeping us waiting with bated breath, for that one day when we can place the disc into our Playstation 3. The game was supposed to be released on November 2nd, but an announcement on the US Playstation blog said it was pushed back... again. The only clue to the new release date was that it would be available this holiday season. What does that mean exactly? Apparently it means that you will have to shake off your hangover and pick up a copy of the game on New Years Day... or Eve... or the day after New Years Day. Honestly, we're not entirely sure and we don't think Polyphony Digital is either.
Best Buy, Gamestop and Amazon.com have updated their respective pre-order pages to reflect a new release date. Amazon.com lists 12/31/10, Gamestop has 01/01/11 and Best Buy shows a date of 01/02/11. For some reason, Target believes the game will be available on November 1st, which is awfully hopeful. Wal-Mart has apparently given up listing a release date, which may be the wisest move of all. Thanks for the tip, Billfred!

      I hope they atleast update the "new" cars they designed 2 years ago that have since then gotten a facelift. If not, I'll survive and still wait in a 10 hour line just to get my limited edition copy.

      Because bug patch is not over yet.

      "GT5 Missing Road Glitch" (texture bug and road glitch)

        @NightFlight

        ...except people have been playing Forza 3 for just under a year now. How long have people been playing GT5? Oh wait...

        Forza 7 will be out before GT5, and it will have the option to control a real racing driver around a real track via mind control from your couch.

        GT5 will blow Forza out of the water.

        I own FM3 and it isn't that impressive compared to what I have seen with GT5.
        • 4 Years Ago
        haha NightFlight... You're right... GT5 probably will blow Forza 3 outta the water... Unfortunately, however, Forza 5 will be out by the time GT5 is finally released. This is turning into a Duke Nukem: Forever scenario lol.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I heard that the delay is due to the inclusion of the new Duke Nukem demo ....

      I feel like a real idiot right now (and should)--since the game was finally supposed to be out and the release date was only 45 days or so away, I purchased the following in the past month:

      A 320GB Playstation 3
      The component video cable
      The collectors edition of GT5 via preorder at GameStop
      I had the Logitech wheel and pedal set already for GT4
      A Bob Earl racing seat setup for the wheel and pedals
      GT5 Prologue (this at least, I got used)

      Now I find that it is being delayed again--they need to fire their project management staff at Polyphony.

      What a joke...
      • 4 Years Ago
      They probably got wind of how many nerds (including myself) bought Starcraft 2 after all these years.

      ......and yes, I'll still buy GT5 when it comes out.
      • 4 Years Ago
      This is not entirely true. These retailers are simply putting dates up based purely on their own speculation.

      Wait for word from Sony, not Target, WalMart, Best Buy, etc.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Who cares, I'm going to be busy playing Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit anyways.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Shocking News!!!!
      • 4 Years Ago
      I am hugely looking forward to this game, but by the time I will slide it into my PS3 the it will be a Classic Car racing game....
        • 4 Years Ago
        Oops bad grammar there... I mean, it will be a Classic Car racing game.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I have just spoken with my source at PolyPhony and he just confirmed to me that the final release date, which won't be moved anymore is the 31st of February 2011!!
        • 4 Years Ago
        I call shenanigans suraj!... Everyone knows Flying Monkeys aren't robots! THEY'RE REAL o.0... Just like Cipher's source!
        • 4 Years Ago
        hmmm maybe i shouldve read through the entire comment before looking like a jackass....
        • 4 Years Ago
        You guys missed his joke. 31st of February. Think about it.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yeah and i just talked to a flying robot monkey.. he told me it would come out yesterday....
      • 4 Years Ago
      I think I have a better chance of living forever and being able to buy all of these cars before this game is released.
