Gran Turismo 5 Release Update

Taku Imasaki's Avatar Posted by Producer, SCEA

We can confirm that Gran Turismo 5 will not be available this November 2nd, but the game’s release will be coming 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.

We’ll have more information for you in the near future.

Jimmyfoxhound : Perfection of Forza? Forza is full of flaws and errors big enough they could feature in their own game, not only to mention they scam their community in terms of a re-launch of FM3. GT5 is already closer to perfection than FM will ever be, even in unreleased state.

Jamiesdls: LOL @ the childish foaming at the mouth trolls defending sony. Do you honestly think anybody believes you at this point? heres a clue: NO! Can you not find gainful employment doing something useful instead of this?

————–

Yeah, some of them are defending Polyphony/Sony so blindly you have to wonder if they are somehow on their payroll. A true GT fanatic would never attack another GT fanatic for being angry or disappointed about a delay. Either way, when we respond directly to these nuts and their provocations we sound crazy too, and the message boards fill up with ranting insults. Then Sony/Polyphony can write us off as an emotional minority, and we are distracted from voicing authentic complaints about production and marketing ploys against them.

Considering this game was started in 2004 this is just a joke, I got a PS3 30 months ago for when this was first due out – is there actually a game to come? To delay again with just a couple of weeks to go, is disgraceful.

Sony / Polyphony should keep their mouths zipped until the discs are being distributed, the “holiday season” line is just going to leave lots of disappointed people on Christmas day.

@2:lol, did you even read the article? Its not comming Nov. 2, now its the holiday season. Hopefully it will be out early December,But at this rate, It probably wont be out till mid 2011.The only good part of this is now I will have a little more time to save my money.

This truly sucks I bought my PS3 to play this game. Now another $%%^ing delay. Looks like Need For Speed Hot Pursuit instead. I am tired of waiting, and all the bull#$%# excuses. Going to cancel my Gamestop pre-order now !!!

Jeff_Chen said:

October 16th, 6:30 pm

Japanese initial release version thru HMV;
NA version thru BestBuy;
Both WILL be cancelled if this game is delayed beyond this year. And won’t buy until the Best version is out or 2nd hand.
Statement over.

P.S. All the filthy words are not enough to express my anger on you. You have successfully converted your fanboy to a non-fanboy. I might just go and buy a RRoD box and play some already-released titles.

Jimmy_Cosmos said:

October 16th, 6:40 pm

So the only exclusive game launching this holiday on the PS3 is the HD remake of Sly Cooper? Ouch.. sorry, maybe next year Sony..

I was really excited about GT5 but since this update about it being delayed, I am not really bothered about it anymore. I know it’s going to be a great game with awesome graphics but I just don’t care. I know they are working very hard on it but come on. Delayed loads! If you’re telling us it’s delayed, would you kindly say why in detail, not just we are putting on the finishing touches. Details PLEASE!
Btw, I heard it’s being released on the 30th November. Hopefully it’s before December.

Yawn @ all the obvious sony shill posters still trying to excuse the inexcuseable. It was funny for the first five minutes but now your just showing how infantile you are. Stop. No really STOP already.

MattyOH said:

October 17th, 8:33 am

Gamestop.ca is saying pre-order is shipping out on Nov. 16. I haven’t seen any articles confirming that release date (making it 2 weeks later than the Nov. 2 release). Anyone see any confirmation for this date?

The_Outrage said:

Sony was right to switch to a matte finish on the PlayStation 3 Slim. It certainly hides a layer of dust better than the older gloss finish.

Fardoche said:

October 17th, 9:25 am

If you remember in 2008, similar thing happened to a highly anticipated game called Little Big Planet. On October 17 the game was RECALLED because of offensive content found on the game music lyric.

Here is how LPB was rescheduled:
US: October 21 pushed to October 27 (was able to get the game on the 25th).
Europe: October 22 pushed to November 3
UK: October 24 pushed to November 5
Japan: October 30 (I think remained unchanged)

Make your own conclusion, but I think we will get GT5 no later than the mentionned Nov 16.

Actually, the thing to get really upset about is that Japan gets a special PS3 GT5 bundle with a titanium blue PS3 Slim 160GB and the rest of us don’t.

The hell’s the matter with you, Sony? Why must you always flip the bird to the rest of the world by giving the good stuff only to Japan?

ICE_KOLD_KILLA92 said:

October 17th, 1:52 pm

Man I remember I pre-ordered it in February and I was waiting for March 3rd. Then they delayed it till 2010 Q4 and then they wouldn’t say at all any release date and then just in E3 they said November 2nd. Actually releasing November 3rd in Japan and November 4th in Europe (The 4th because I asked at GameStop here in Spain when fully paying the Collector’s Edition). I remember watching an IGN Daily Fix where the guy joked saying all we could hope for is no other delay (as a joke) and now it becomes true. WHY POLYPHONY, WHY SONY, WHYYYYYYY??!!!!! :'(

imfloatn said:

October 17th, 2:04 pm

Ok..I was ok with it being delayed about 99 times. But when the actual release date was weeks away, really! I am starting to think that it isn’t worth waiting for. Sometimes making people wait isn’t the way to go! I will have to say that Gran Turismo has the absolute worst customer relations I have ever seen.

maymet45 said:

October 17th, 2:19 pm

Jeez!! I’m 65 years old, I may not live long enough to play it!! I bought my PS3 expressly to play this game.

TheBandit20_03 said:

October 17th, 2:49 pm

Well, from what I’ve read on GTPlanet.net, they’re saying the delay is because of Sony forcing GT5 to be on firmware 3.50 instead of 3.41, to combat hacking using the PSJailbreak software (which doesn’t work on 3.50). This delay meant that GT5 was ready for production 3 days after its disc production window had passed. The current release window is 8-12 days after Black Friday in the US.

Sad that I had to find this on a different site instead of the Playstation Blog or on the Gran Turismo 5 site.

To those who claim they can ditch all of the discs then remanufacture them and then ship worldwide in a month better think again.

It Only Does Endless Delays.

Jimmy_Cosmos said:

October 17th, 9:33 pm

All you forza fanboys need to lay off. While you’re playing an actual videogame us GT fanboys are picturing GT5 in our minds and it’s perfect! Kaz is a genius. By never launching the game it can be as awesome as we imagine it to be! Man, if GT5 is this awesome imagine how unbelievable GT6 will be when it never launches!!!

Oh well such is life….

I pre ordered…. I anticipated and I have been dissapointed, I’m not pissed off about it, just hope the final game is as good as the WHOLE world expects. With all these delays more people are just sitting back and watching, where small problems whould have normally been brushed off with other games, now a small graphical error will be like a coffee stain on the Monalisa. I hope sony knows how criticle this games success really is.

goodbye pre-order

hello ex-rental copy

I booked the week off work to play this.

dissapointed to say the least.

Gronkus said:

Pre-Ordered the GT5 Collector’s Edition. I can wait! I pre-ordered Dead Rising 2, Medal of Honor, Catlevania: Lords of Shadow, Fallout: New Vegas, Fable III, CoD: Black Ops, Goldeneye 007, Donkey Cong Country Returns and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. I can wait.

SuperMadeS15 said:

October 18th, 1:35 pm

Yep this is a joke, I bought my ps3 before the first release date and since then my PS3 has broken 4 time and I am on my 3rd laser.
But no mater how much I complain or how many PS3’s die each day Sony blow’s us off like its no big deal.

They say the GT5 will be worth its weight but I have already lost faith.
I should just sell my PS3 and all of my games for more tires and go drift at PGP.
….. this is BS.

I anticipat all GT5 fans including my self have such high expectations for this game and it will probably be a big dissapointment because we mentally think it will be mind blowing. When in all actuality we will start nit picking the physics and say, ” we waited x years for this s**t”.

Sony should throw in powered 3D glasses…..

Canceled my Collectors Edition pre-order tonight, I’ll pick this fgame up used some time at the mid/end of 2011.

This is a load of B/S now i really don’t think GT5 will be all that when its evenutally released!! Its taken years to develop and ONLY Premium cars will have cockpit views and full crash damage, pretty Crap if you ask me…

I’m honestly sick of waiting now with pathetic reasons for delays and no clear date for release other than during the Holiday period. Holiday period when, 2020??!!

Im sure Mr Yamauchi is having the time of his life travelling around the world driving expensive cars at our expense!!

GT5, a bit like the Sagrada Famillia in Barcelona – Looks good but will never be finished!!!!

Erocks13 said:

October 19th, 9:58 am

THIS IS ONE OF ABOUT 3-4 GAMES THAT I FOLLOW RELIGIOUSLY. I EXPECTED THIS TO BE DELAYED AT LEAST 3 TIMES BEFORE ACTUAL RELEASE. I BELIEVE THEY HAVE ONE MORE DELAY COMING YET IF THAT IS TRUE. (REMEMBER GT4??) I LIKE THAT Polyphony Digital WANTS TO MAKE SURE THE GAME PLAY IS PERFECT FOR THE GAMERS WHO PLAY THIS SERIES BUT, REALLY!?? I HAVE PLAYED OUT MY GT5 PROLOUGE. AT LEAST SONY COULD HAVE LET US CONTINUE TO PLAY THE INDIANAPOLIS TRACK THAT WAS UP FOR ABOUT A MONTH. I NEED SOMETHING ELSE. I REFUSE TO BUY AND PLAY ANY X-BOX CRAP. THEY HAVE YET TO DEVELOP ANY TYPE OF WHEEL AND PEDAL SET LIKE THE LOGITECH PRODUCTS FOR PLAYSTAION AND PC. BUT, I AM TO THE POINT THAT IF THEY RELEASE A WHEEL AND PEDAL SET BEFORE GT5 IS OUT I MIGHT HAVE TO SWITCH OVER TO THE “DARK SIDE” ONCE AND FOR ALL.
NOT SOMETHING I WOULD PREFER TO DO THOUGH.

O.K. SONY THERE IS MY INPUT ON THE MATTER!!! :)

otacon1274 said:

October 19th, 12:07 pm

!!!Ouch!!! Delayed Again, i have bad feeling about this if keeps doing the delayed not released the GT5 at least double checked such as 3D, firmware and FPS before confirming it. all other players they pre-order the game they starting hallucinating to play it out and starting complaining or yelling. i think it should be released by around thanksgiving or beginning of December 2010. i hope

The_Man_47 said:

October 19th, 2:32 pm

My guess – this delay is about making sure the pirates can’t play GT on their hacked consoles. This will also mean that all of us that still want Other OS support will not be able to play the game. Weak.

October 20th, 9:43 am

To be honest it really is a shame that it is delayed on the other hand its all because of that stupid usb stick crap.
I searched the web high and low and it seems sony delayed the game so they release the game with sdk 3.50 instead of sdk 3.41 to combat priracy and that set them 3 weeks down for pressing there game at the factory that prints them.
according to rumors it will be released on nov 26th or otherwise its still on track before christmas 2010 so all in all NO PANIC!

SuperFlamengo said:

October 20th, 11:09 am

Delayed till when??
I trusted and pre-paid it,a month ago!
Probably the best idea is to go to others racing games,the one that are not all that but at least is more than TALK!
Im running to gamestop to get my money back.
And belive me ive learned my lesson.”Olny buy it if you see it”

October 21st, 12:51 am

So Seriously. what’s the Word Sony!? u have to know a ballpark date. I mean should I just order NFS & get my speed fix from EA? I’m really in the mood 4 some quality racing & I admit I skipped GT4 so I’m long overdue for some GT in my life & I’ll be damed if I’m going 2 toss GT3 in (mind you I lost my save data)

I mean this has GOT to be the worst Holiday season 4 gaming EVER. There is absolutely garbage-nothing coming this Holiday season. So GT5 was the 1 thing I knew could help me get through this ridiculously pathetic season. there honestly isn’t software this season. lets see, theres GT5, NFS, & Hmm & Hmmm yeah Sly Cooper (meh, been there, still get it but) yeah there doesn’t seem to be much this Holiday Season. Yet Jan-March is azz packed w/ rape ur wallet games.

really though. you can’t stay mute forever. I think u @ least owe the community a new date already. Or the truth behind the delay. I’d personally like to know what I need to do for my gaming fix now. I was so set on GT5 I had the entire month cleared to get my 350z, get my Volks, and work my way up to the Porsche GT3+…

RhesusVX said:

October 21st, 2:02 am

Wow, such a bunch of whining little babies, all those “threats” of selling their PS3, moving to the “dark side”, and generally boycotting or delaying getting the game even further… Truly pathetic.

Put your actions where your mouthes are, and go sell your PS3s. No? Thought not. You know damn well that you are talking garbage, and will buy GT5 either day one when it releases or not long after.

Grow up and quit acting like spoiled brats who think PD and SONY owe them something.

October 21st, 4:31 pm

So in November we had GT5 , Assasins creed 3, and Call of Duty all coming out around the same time. I wounder, it takes time to create the blurays and ship to the shops. have they not already started doing this? If not then I think the November date was just to get in early pre orders. I can wait for this but its a joke now.

Thank you, Sony, for kicking all of us loyal Gran Turismo fans in the balls for Christmas, because you had to have GT5 on 3.50 instead of 3.41. Thank you for nothing.

At least I won’t feel bad, what with the 25th Anniversary Wii coming out November 7th, and Rock Band 3 on my 360. When January comes around, I may just forget to get GT5 completely, considering how you’ve forgotten about us, your customers.

You know, the delay makes sense.

*Security breaches that come in conflict with the company’s potential profits. (Piracy)

*Competition from Need for Speed, Call of Duty, and Kinect. (Market saturation)

*The majority of operational costs were covered by selling the prologue of Gran Turismo 5. (Abundance of revenue)

*The delay can act as a way of marketing. (Creating more hype and more news in general.)

*I honestly doubt you guys are still working on the game. (but if so the game can be polished some more.)

I completely understand Sony. As a fan, either way I would have bought the game, but with a simple delay you guys solved a ton of problems and placed yourself in an aggressive business position. Good job.

I love GT but c’mon 5 years in the making, delay after delay after DELAY its getting ridiculous. This game would need to deliver absolutely everything we can imagine and I hope to the racing GOD that it does.

You have got to be kidding me right? Oh well i guess its because i told them if they could add Mt. Haruna(AKA akina) to the game. Quality over quantity. Better to have a game that gives you real driving experience unlike forza

Why dont they delay the game and release it 2 hours before the world ends then.

FormerPSfan said:

October 23rd, 4:06 pm

For gawds sake stop lying to us already! stop attacking us with your stupid fake usernames you post under sony & pd.

If you had any intention you’d have had the game ready no more than 6 months after prologues release. it doesn’t take 2+ years after your foolish overpriced demo to get the full game out the door. This last minute “delay” is a lie nothing but! we all know it takes more than 3 weeks to produce thousands of game discs get them package and shipped to thousands of retailers. Its obvious to the entire world that a last second “delay” with no solid release date except lies & “real soon now” is anything other than stonewalling.

PD & Sony, give it up, admit its not coming out and refund peoples money? do you really thing you can get away with taking payments from thousands of people and delivering nothing will be regarded as anything other than fraud?
