The inevitable has happened, with GT5 once again being delayed at the behest of Polyphony Digital's Kazunori Yamauchi who recently tweeted that this latest delay was "inexcusable".

The PlayStation Blog reported the delay, and has promised the game would still ship this holiday season.

"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."

Is this the new Duke Nukem Forever?

Posted 01:23pm 15/10/10
haha wow everyone is going to absoultely rip s*** on every single little flaw with this game.

They would have to be pretty confident that its going to be a near perfect product after what 4-5yrs of production.

I remember when i first bought my ps3 when they just came out yrs and yrs ago, and it was spose to be one of the launching tittles, or very close after launch

how hard is it to make a racing game?

The actual reason for the delay turned out to be on the production side. Gran Turismo 5 missed its production window by a mere three days. Kazunori Yamauchi publicly apologised via his Twitter account and explained that with such a complex game, a lot has to be ironed out. He finished his Tweet with, "Wait a little longer".[40][41]It was later leaked by a BluRay forum moderator that the delay was due to Sony's decision to release the game under the newer 3.50 SDK firmware standard, rather than 3.41 as originally intended.

so i guess that means you'll need the latest firmware update to play it?

Unless Kazunori Yamauchi is tweeting from the other side it wasn't a bequest :P

Sounds like by Christmas time. I hope it does.

A work colleague has some GT5 iphone app and says release date is tomorrow? This could be release date in another country and then a couple of days to follow for us? Anyway, I told him not to hold his breath.
Posted 02:57pm 02/11/10

Posted 02:59pm 02/11/10
Yeah, November 3 was the planned release date before this delay.
