GameStop's New Date For GT5: November 1
The saga of the unknown but much-discussed Gran Turismo 5 launch date is often frustrating, but we might finally be zeroing in on the grand finale.
Ever since the game got pushed out of its anticipated March date in Japan, we've been hearing conflicting evidence concerning the new date. However, if you simply stick with what you've heard from Sony and Polyphony, all signs point towards this fall; furthermore, Sony boss Peter Dille has said the game will most certainly release before the year is out. October is the popular theory right now and although it appears to be little more than a placeholder date, a reader tells us GameStop has a new launch date for GT5: November 1. That fits with the albeit vague information we currently have, and it would be good timing for the holidays, too. With the likes of Heavy Rain and God of War III already available, Sony could definitely use a huge, high-profile PlayStation 3 exclusive for its holiday 2010 lineup. And we're not sure if the final version will boast compatibility for 3D and the PlayStation Move but in all honesty, we really don't care, anymore. We just want the game.
There's little doubt that GT5 will disappoint but the fans have been salivating for quite a long time now. So let's hope late-October/early-November is indeed realistic.
