It Only Does Revolutionary Racing Experiences

Peter Dille's Avatar + Posted by Peter Dille on Nov 18, 2010 // Senior Vice President, Marketing & PlayStation Network

PlayStation Nation,

In just six short days, the franchise that revolutionized the racing category as we know it will be making its exclusive debut on PlayStation 3. Gran Turismo 5 will be racing onto store shelves this coming Wednesday, November 24. This highly anticipated installment will no doubt raise the bar on the franchise’s unparalleled graphics, presentation and gameplay – bringing you an experience so life-like you’ll find it hard to distinguish from a live race.

While we think features such as the all-new Course Maker, an expansive online racing community built right in, stereoscopic 3D compatibility and more than 1,000 cars from the world’s top manufacturers, including karts and select NASCAR cars, speak for themselves, we still couldn’t resist giving one of our most anticipated and loved franchises the “Kevin Butler” treatment. In this latest ad, we find Kevin Butler taking a call from a devoted Gran Turismo fan anxiously waiting for the game’s release. In between showing off his own real-life GT garage and some serious stuntman skills, Kevin fills us in on just how many amazing features were added to GT5 in order to bring you the greatest racing game of all time.

As always you’re the first to see the new ad here but you can also check it out when the Indianapolis Colts take on the New England Patriots on CBS this Sunday as well as on some other great NFL match-ups and many of your favorite shows in the weeks to come.

With the holidays just around the corner, we couldn’t be more excited to welcome GT5 into a robust product lineup that includes PlayStation Move and an exciting roster of Move titles, UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition, The Sly Collection, and much more. There’s something for everyone so spread the word and get PS3 on as many holiday shopping lists as you can.

See you in stores on Wednesday and more importantly online in GT5!

Mr. Butler is a professional VP experienced in Adding More Awesome. Do not attempt to escape from GT5′s awesomeness.

That move commercial with KB…the distractions one, is just stupid. Tiger Woods patched with Move is going to convince people to buy the device? And at the end how it shows all those move games in background…there’s like 6 games that just keep repeating….

KB…not very funny anymore. What is funny is that those rediculous kinects are selling well.

Good luck with GT5

Win. Win. Win.

Playstation for Life! Been part of the PSFamily since the beginning, once nintendo refused to evolve. Sony provides the best content and services to the consumer.

Don’t fall into the Microsoft trap. Keep to your buisness ethics PLEASE. I don’t want to pay more and get less. Be loyal to yourselves and you’ll have life long fans.

God damnit KB, you just sold a copy of GT5!

+ TLSBill on November 18th, 2010 at 6:35 am said:

Great commercial, KB is always FTW! I’ve been a GT fan since the beginning (yes I still have my GT1 save games) but all the delays have left me feeling “meh” for 5. I mean, it’s been 5 freaking years, with delay after delay after broken date. Meanwhile Forza has filled the void quite well, and I’m not sure it’s worth dropping it to buy GT5.

You should have resisted and just featured the game instead.

Thirteen year old boys who think that clown is funny and the Qore girls are hot are a tiny demographic.

“When they said realistic damage was impossible, I said make it work”.

Well, they def made unrealistic work.

Cause GT5 doesn’t have “realistic”. Unless that’s what the last 3 delays were for.

BTW: On a positive note, KB is awesome. The laugh was great.
