It’s Official: Gran Turismo 5 Is Coming November 2, 2010!

Stephanie Yoshimoto's Avatar Posted by Senior Product Marketing Manager

That’s right. At the Sony E3 press conference today at the Shrine Auditorium, SCEA President & CEO Jack Tretton unveiled a jaw-dropping showpiece trailer of Gran Turismo 5 that disclosed the big news – GT5 is officially coming on November, 2, 2010.

As you can expect from any Gran Turismo game, GT5 will be bigger and better than ever, including everything from 950+ cars to a new and improved online component with expansive community features and custom race lobbies. Before you head off to pre-order the game that every racing fan is going to be playing, you’ll need to decide which version you’re going to get: the standard edition or the limited Collector’s Edition. And if you’re a true Gran Turismo fan, of course you’ll want to pick up the Collector’s Edition.

Gran Turismo doesn’t cut corners, and neither does this Collector’s Edition. It’s packed full of must-have items that were picked and designed for true car lovers: an exclusive 1:43 scale diecast Nissan GT-R Spec V, an in-depth 300-page car guide, a GT-branded key chain, a voucher for five (5) DLC cars, and a numbered certificate of authenticity, all housed in stylish, premium packaging. And you get all that for $99.99 MSRP.


The included diecast car is an exclusive 1:43 scale 2009 Nissan GT-R Spec V with a custom Gran Turismo livery designed by Polyphony Digital, produced by well-known collectible car maker Kyosho, who have been making some of the best collectible diecast cars for over 20 years. The 300+ page exclusive Collector’s Edition book from Polyphony Digital will be essential reading for GT fans, containing everything from the history of the automobile, to driving techniques, professional racing tips, car and engine basics and tuning know-how, and reference data about Gran Turismo 5. I want to warn you that the Collector’s Edition has a limited run, so pre-order it quickly if you want to guarantee your copy.

The exciting pre-order program for Gran Turismo 5 offers exclusive and beautiful in-game cars as bonuses, including the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R GT500, McLaren F1, and more. Each car features an exclusive and stylish Gran Turismo-themed “stealth” livery custom-designed by Polyphony Digital, with select performance upgrades over the standard versions of the cars available in the game. Pre-orders offers will be coming soon at participating retailers for both the standard and Collector’s Edition versions.

Last but certainly not least, here is the brand new trailer for Gran Turismo 5 that debuted just a short while ago at Sony E3 press conference. Get a glimpse of some of the thrilling racing Gran Turismo 5 will offer, featuring World Rally Championship rally cars kicking up dust clouds at night, SuperGT cars racing through scenic Europe, NASCAR cars jockeying for position, the Stig on the Top Gear test track, and much more.

In the coming months leading up to launch, we’ll be sharing new game features and new cars and tracks. In case you missed it, be sure to go check out the full-length version of the GT retrospective trailer that debuted here on the PS blog. For those of you who fondly remember GT, this one’s for you.

Keep checking the Gran Turismo website for the latest screenshots, detailed information on the game, and other Gran Turismo-related news.

$100 bucks isn’t bad and it is 3D ready! Very nice, and I guess that last delay was for the 3D enhancement. I feel bad about all the negative stuff I said about the game now…

Some say…..he randomly appears on postage stamps in Poland. And some say…….he’s going to be in Gran Turismo 5. All we really know is…..he’s The Stig.

I don’t know if Ill be getting the CE or not. I guess it depends on what cars come with it, which I’m assuming are different cars than you have mentioned here for pre-ordering. All I know for sure is, I’ll be playing this game the day it comes out.

And hey, since the date’s announced, any chance you can let me know now which NASCAR tracks will be featured in the game? As that is the part of the game I’m most excited for.

“dlc cars”

I don’t like the sound of that :(

Will there be a way to purchase the book seperately? None of the other pack-in items do it for me, but I’d love to get that somehow.

Last year my ps3 broke twice and i paid for it to get fixed the first time and then paid for an exchange the second time and got one of the new 120gigs. the reason i put up with that headache was because i was waiting for this game to finally be released, i’ve been waiting since launch for this game. people may think it’s stupid but this game is the sole reason i got a ps3.

Myke-Myke said:

jimmyfoxhound said:

June 15th, 2:35 pm

I cannot wait for this game. This is a pretty big exclusive, why in the world wasn’t there more focus on it at E3??

Glacier928 said:

If these DLC cars are for those who buy the Collector’s Edition, I hope you guys don’t release them for free, like you guys did with GT for PSP.

That loses part of the meaning “Collector’s Edition”.

Anyway, $100? Release night buy for me. :]

Arigato gozaimasu!! (thank you to my bro’s Japanese wife)

Wow… that’s five years of quality development in that trailer! The beauty of this game, and the feeling of driving a physical car, is going to be unequaled.

Reinheart said:

Finally! I hope this date is real this time. Day 1 purchase on special package from me on this one.

Superstrokey1123 said:

June 15th, 2:56 pm

I think ill just get the regular edition still.

Sgt_0951 said:

June 15th, 2:56 pm

Great news Stephanie. A combination of GRID and GT5 Prologue will hold me over for 5 months (with the knowledge that at least some of my Prologue cars will transfer over). I assume we preorder the Collectors Edition through the retail stores that sell PS3 games (Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Gamestop, etc.)? How soon will we be able to preorder this Collectors Edition pack?

Callahan09 said:

June 15th, 2:59 pm

Awesome. Finally know when I can get my hands on this game!

Please update us with all the latest info on the NASCAR features.

DerMeister45 said:

June 15th, 2:59 pm

Since the days of GT I have always loved this game. Gt3 is the only game I have from my PS2 that I still play on my PS3. I want, no need the CE of this game. When and where can I preorder from?
