Another Hint That Gran Turismo 5 Will Launch This Year

Every time we see more footage of Gran Turismo 5 or pop in Prologue, we grow that much more excited for the final product. And if it does indeed drop this year...party time, baby!

Plenty of evidence has been found regarding the very possible launch of GT5 in 2009, and now, we have another little hint: if you listen to the latest 1Up podcast, you'll hear the conversation concerning a "big Sony title" that people initially didn't expect to arrive this year. Someone asks what this mystery title is and they add, "yeah, what are you driving at...?" This week is the GamesCom event in Cologne, Germany, and Sony's press conference is scheduled for Tuesday. Therefore, we don't have much longer to wait before a few of 2009's biggest announcements should hit the Internet like a ton of bricks; the PS3 price drop, the PS3 Slim, and, if recent info is accurate, a 2009 release date for GT5. Really, all we want is a price drop but we can always use a few more in the way of jaw-dropping reveals. The only problem we have will be the additional difficulty in picking a Game of the Year...how many titles do we have to consider?! This is getting nutty; why not release The Last Guardian, too?

Anyway, keep a close eye on PSXE for all the big stuff this week. At this rate, the news may be bigger than what we saw during Sony's conference at E3.

4 post necessary huh? You know you don't get a post count here?

This would be cool news, but my videogame budget for this year is already insane.
Although a slim bundle would be beautiful.

First off Fundando, you don't know me well enough to call me an asshole. But with your response, you clearly are one.

Second, my question wasn't directed at you now, was it?

Still, I'm sorry you lost your job.

Third, my question was sincere, I meant no malice so your response was wholly out of line.

Fourth, I only asked because some people, who still have their jobs and paychecks, are fretting over the economy and the "recession." These same people are freaking out and cutting back on expenditures, which they don't have to do because they still have money. When a lot of people cut back on spending when they don't have to that only makes the economic downward spiral worse.

I need it quickly because GT PSP can only sustain my cravings for so long. Today I was watching a TOP GEAR ep. on BBCA about the Veyron and the Zonda F (the one with the economy race between the three hosts using a TTV6 Jag, a 3 cylinder VW Polo, and Subaru Legacy Diesel(winner)) and as I watch the Veyron and Zonda go around the track I'm picturing the race in GT5 (since the TG Test Track is confirmed to be in game) and how I could match those lap times in a game and then I had to change shorts. lol

Good question at the end of the article, how indeed do you pick the game of the year from among all the massive titles coming? Even just the three - Uncharted 2, R&C ACIT and GT5 - is an incredible range for a GOTY choice.

OFF TOPIC: this concerns GT PSP and the number of cars. During E3 it was stated that over 800 cars would feature but if history has taught me anything is that over 800 could mean over 900. A good example would be the release of GT4 and how it was stated by PD and the game box that GT4 had over 625 vehicles but if actaully played you will see the game had about 736 vehicles in game. So don't get all pumped now because this is just getting started.

GOD OF WAR 3?
i know they announced a march 2010 release date at E3 but something caught my eye today.
GAME and EB had GOW3 listed as TBC 2010 than E3 came and they set it as march 2010, as of today they have moved it to TBC 2009.
somethings fishy, they wouldent of moved the date unless they have some info we dont.
i doubt GT5 will be out this year because the exact same things happened but in reverse, GT5 was been listed on EB GAME and JBHIFI as TBC 2009 but has recently been set back to 2010.
screw the price drop.
screw the slim PS3.
screw BC (even though i really want to play R&C3)
screw GT5
JUST GIVE ME GOD OF WAR 3!

Agreed, I can understand the zeal, simply because GoW is a great franchise. But Polphony Digital, Kazunori Yamauchi & Co., and the GT series are definitely not to be screwed (unless a really odd peripheral comes out from Sony someday...shudder). I would take GT5 over GOW3 in a heartbeat, anyday of the week, if they were launching in the same month.

Damn I hope so.

I'm tired of fanboys arguing over which is the best console racing sim. We need to settle this soon!!!

(I'm a secret fanboy so I don't like Turn 10's leader nor Forza's die hard fans)

Especially the guy that keeps arguing with me that Forza 3 is more of a sim and GT is and always was an arcade game.

I mean..... o_O what?
I continued to be nice to the guy but he was older than me and tried making me believe his opinions, I don't get it? Right?

I smell DOOM for the 360.... if all of this is happening now.... I really can't see how the 360 will gain any momentum for the rest of the year.

But great news for us, and just to say it again... I called it! I knew they would drop GT5 this year. My bet was Xmas 09. But if it comes with the price drop,PS3 Slim and adding BC again... With games like Uncharted 2, and R&C also dropping in October.... It's gonna be a stampede.... NICE!!!!

Not that big of a fan of Gran Turismo, but i know what games are going to be great, my opinion of course. I never got into the game as much because i like games that i could actually beat, without putting a whole lot of hours into it, the same as GTIV. But im definitely getting this later though. For those die hard Gran turismo fans, great news for you, I'll see you on the track a bit later. Good job sony, you're on a roll, but would you mind lowering ps3 repair costs, kindda had to remove a game from my must get list, hahahaha

I've been stating my belief that GT5 would arrive this year for the longest time.

Now, with another big Sony title, MAG, getting pushed to January 2010, Sony HAS to release GT5 this year. Otherwise, it is left with just Uncharted 2 to carry the exclusive flag this holiday season.

While Uncharted 2 is going to be amazing, Sony needs more than that to have a good showing this holiday season. Sony needs to release one of its classic franchises.
