After a bunch of delays over the years, Sony and Polyphony Digital have once again dated their ridiculously anticipated PS3-exclusive racing sim for release. This time though, the date seems more confident and too immanent to possibly slip again.
Tthe game is now promised to be on shelves before Christmas and November 25 2010 is the date to look for it in Australian stores.
"Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious project, with challenges and complexities which have made it our version of the Apollo Space Programme!" commented Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital Inc. "When we created the original Gran Turismo back in 1997, we wanted to set a completely new precedent for the racing genre. With the technological leap onto PlayStation®3, our objective with GT5 was to create another great revolution which would not only satisfy our own high expectations, but would meet or even exceed the anticipation of the fans. Satisfying the loyal Gran Turismo followers is at the heart of all of our efforts, which is why it was such a difficult decision to delay the release of the game, and one which we did not take lightly. I can only apologise to everyone for making you wait so long, and I hope that when you try out the wealth of driving experiences available in Gran Turismo 5, you will not be disappointed."
Yet another trailer promoting the game has also been released, offering a cool little stop-motion animated short. Check that one out here
, but note that the release date at the end of November 24 is for North America -- it will be November 25 for Australia.

I think this is going to be one of the most picked apart games when it comes to reviews.
When do you guys get a copy?

Give me a f*****g break. What a stupid comment.

On a serious note, i saw a few video's of the damage modelling in GT5 and damn it's terrible. They might as well have just left it out again.

im more into nfs style - put ur foot to the floor and skid at insane speeds around a corner. whereas forza if you did the same thing you would spin out and smash your car up.

learn patience and car control in a proper sim that punishes poor driving, this will help you in the real world

Maybe best to call them because it cannot be accessed thru their website.. only Collector's and Signature Series are there.
Available at midnight the 25th.

Yeah, f*** that again
Seriously, if you like your games (flight games, racing, etc), save your coin an drop it on some decent peripherals that ENHANCE the experience.
PS: I don't own a console so no GT5 for me :(

Anyway, online should be a hoot.
Posted 01:16pm 25/11/10
the damage looks pretty s***** in the videos i have seen, hows it go?
handling/ physics look a bit off aswell, how does it compare to forza or something?
Posted 01:48pm 25/11/10
Hey, yea picked it up yesterday.
Licencing isn't an immediate requirement, tho I decided to knock over the bulk of the B licence yesterday, nothing new there.
I am most impressed with the refinements to the driving model, it's quite improved over GT4, however it still feels a little removed (y'know, like you can't just spin the car out with a heavy foot) that being said, I'm still putting around in largely unmodified street cars (lil 4 bangers etc).
Thus far: it's prettier that Forza 3.
everything else... it's similar, again, I've not hit enough of the tracks to comment yet, but I actually really enjoyed the cariance in the tracks in Forza 3 (that drift/mountain track is AWESOME in F3)
Top Gear test track is awesome, however the first time I hit it (in the challenges you've gotta race in a VW Kombi, vs VW Kombi's) it was PAINFUL.

they're charging $99 for it, get some realistic expectations
Posted 02:13pm 25/11/10
Tried several stores yesterday and none would break street date for me. My local jbhifi got in only 9 copies. At $29 these won't last long so get in fast
Posted 02:12pm 25/11/10
To be honest I don't really wanna turn this into a forza 3 vs. gt5 thread, but the only way gt5 could possibly better is if it had a superior physics engine which I highly doubt. Personally I find it really s*** though that 200 cars look awesome, and the other 800 look straight out of the ps2 era (as reviews suggest)
Posted 02:54pm 25/11/10
my first response is, "which view do you use again?"

I use a controller so the double wheel thing isn't a problem for me.
