Gran Turismo 5 release date confirmed!
After the LOOOOOONG way, it’s finally here.
Sony has announced that Gran Turismo 5 will release in the US on November 24th, 2010.
Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital Inc. had this to say:
Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious project, with challenges and complexities which have made it our version of the Apollo Space Program! 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 Gran Turismo 5 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 apologize 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.
Gran Turismo 5 is the series’ debut on the PlayStation 3 featuring over 1,000 cars, including karts and select NASCAR cars, scores of tracks, the all-new Course Maker, a dynamic weather system, a robust online community. And we’ll get that in full HD graphics in less than two weeks time 🙂
Pre-ordering GT5 will nag you the game and receive a voucher for one of five free downloadable cars with a custom Stealth Model skin. 🙂Gran Turismo 5, GT5, PlayStation 3
