E3 2010: Gran Turismo 5 Launch Date Confirmed
Remember that release date we needed? The one that we've been pining for ever since we heard of the recent delay? It's here.
After showing an absolutely mind-blowing trailer for Gran Turismo 5, showcasing all the amazing work Kazunori Yamauchi and Polyphony Digital has put into this impending masterpiece, it was revealed that the new driving simulator would launch on November 2. It's a perfect time, as it lands in a prime spot to take advantage of the holiday season, and it's actually amusing that GameStop had the correct release date. The video just proves once again how far Polyphony and Co. always push the PlayStation platform, and although I'm personally not the biggest fan of NASCAR, the addition makes plenty of sense. And we just can't wait to take it for a spin; we're hoping they'll give us a demo some time before the game's launch. Also, remember that with the inclusion of multiplayer, 3D, and a new damage model, this will be very much unlike any GT experience you may have had in the past. And in the end, we should get the single most realistic and authentic racing video game ever made. It' a super-high expectation but at this point, what else can we think?
GT5 should once again redefine the nature of virtual racing and if it doesn't, I'll eat every article of my wardrobe.
