Yamauchi Apologizes, GT5 2010 Release Probable

Yesterday, we learned that Gran Turismo 5 had once again been hit with another delay.

Today, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has apologized - twice - via his personal Twitter page, and as translated at Andriasang. Sony only said the game was delayed and that it would still arrive for "the holiday season;" Yamauchi added a brief reason for the delay. Apparently, it's taking the team more time "to finalize some of the game's more complicated systems." Then, after apologizing again, he asked gamers to "wait a bit more." When someone begged him to release the game before the end of the year, Yamauchi responded with- "I believe we won't keep you waiting until then." Based on everything we've seen and heard so far, we'd guess that GT5 had slipped 3-4 weeks and will launch the week following Black Friday, or the first week of December. That would be fine, as it still lands squarely in the holiday season. Some had worried that "holiday" could extend beyond December 31, 2010, depending on your definition of the term, but it appears we don't have to worry about that.

They said we'd have a new date before the end of this month, so stay tuned. We'll just take a shot in the dark and say it'll be December 1.

2-3 weeks of delay isn't worth the effort to make a public apology. If they could foresee themselves to finish the game with 2-3 weeks of extra work, they would be confident enough to confirm the next release date. I would expect it'll be at least 4-6 extra weeks of delay, pushing it to mid-December.

Considering that they've been showing off the gameplay for a while and confirmed the installation size, I think the game is done. They are probably finalizing some of the online network, which was a bit weak on the GT5P.

Not really fussed by the whole charade, honestly. As long as they produce the best racer the industry has seen, I am sure it will all be worth while.

However, I won't be purchasing at launch. I will wait a little longer and see what the reviews say. Hopefully it will be as good as it has been hyped to be. I assume it will be; these days I am cautious about everything and don't buy into anything without close inspection first. It is just too expensive a mistake to make these days.

It will be great to see it on store shelves though, and people enjoying it. I know there are fellow gamers @ PSXeXtreme desperate for this game. :)

I simply don't do desperation anymore... ok, I lie, I do for Killzone 3... but even that I won't get it day one until I read the reviews on it.

One thing I really hope they implement (but very doubtful) is a punishment for racers who drop out on the LAST LAP of an online race.

Too often, racers get frustrated after falling behind, and unable to regain their original position at the front of the pack, that they just disconnect.

This happened all too often on GT Prologue!

I think it might be from someone with a poor net connection. If you get punished everytime you drop out when it's not in your control then that's a bit unfair.

What do you mean by punishment anyway? That they drop to dnf for that race result or something more substantial?

Here's my take on this! I'm ok with them delaying it! Their only hurting themselves! Here's where I'm at! What can they possibly get done in 3-4 weeks? My guess is not a lot because it still has to get published! So they maybe have given themselves 2 more weeks of tweaking which may or may not accomplish much.

Also all this anticipation is driving people insane. I think a lot of people are going to look at this and in te end say its not as good as it should be. Granted the game is sounding phenomenal but given all this time I think a lot of people are going to nit pick at that! And just so we are clear I won't be one of them! I just think the anticipation will hurt this game. I know people with ps3' just for this game and what do they have to show for it? More waiting. That type of anticipation can turn negative.

So as highlander said wake me when it gets here!

Bigrailer, I really don't think it will make such a big difference...

Maybe sales will not be as fast as one would have liked had the delays not been present... all said and done though I am expecting minimum total sales to top 3 to 5 million... it may take some time to get there, but it should be a popular buy for peoples collection all through 2011.

Its going to be an expansive race, and should satisfy most people...

Indeed. I do fault Kaz (and his excellent team) for being to much of a perfectionist however.

There is a time when deadlines must supersede one more ounce of polish.

GTPlanet is in overdrive with speculation on to what the reasons are concerning the delay.

New feature?
Porsche?
Bugs?

Maybe it's their Ferrari license?
Seems like Ferrari is at the forefront of gaming license issues these days.

There's no chance of GT5 adding a *new* license to their stable (ala Porsche). This would mean, they'd need to model new cars, etc. It takes what, 2 weeks per car or something like that, to model?

maxpontiac
Thursday, October 14, 2010 @ 12:08:29 PM

Ferrari's are in game, so I doubt it's that.

The reason I mentioned Porsche, is because someone commented on how EA's liscense for Porsche had expired. I didn't verify it, but the possibility could exist.

Each car takes 3 to 6 MONTHS to model (Premium ones do), and I see your point. Perhaps PD had the modeling done. I know it's a reach, but regardless, it makes little matter to me since I am not a fan of the brand.

GT5 was delayed Scarecrow. No, nothing was announced about a US/Europe delay, but that's because the game never had a release date for US/Europe. The game is from Japan and THAT's where the delay was. A delay in Japan equals a delay around the world. So yes, there was a delay in getting the game to the US/Europe.

Don't you think that's what people are getting at when they refer to GT5's delay?

We all know you and millions of others want GT5, but don't get insulting about it. The game has been in development over 6 years. I think gamers have the right to be a little perturbed over the slow dev cycle.

2010 Holiday was supposed to be packed with PS3 games. All the games I wanted got delayed to 2011. By next year, it'll be too crowded for any games to be released. Games like Uncharted 3 will be pushed to 2012.

Many games that were originally delayed because Sony wanted to space them out and give them a chance, would suffer and compete against each other now.

There's nothing but GT5 for me this year. I'll be really disappointed if it doesn't make it this year.

Read the first two words of his post. 2010 Holiday. Oct-Dec this year originally had a ton of games, but now everything has been pushed into 2011. GT5 is the last great exclusive for the year and now it gets delayed to the point that it might not even make 2010 at all? Thats tough.

There is some suggestion that the delay was due to Sony mandating that the game be built with SDK 3.5.

Could it be that Sony added some sooper sekret sauce to the 3.5 SDK (and 3.5 firmware) to help combat piracy? 3D was already in the firmware/SDK with previous versions.

Either way anything that delays the final delivery of the game to manufacture could lead to a longer delay delivering the finished game discs.

Here's hoping GT5 nails it. Cause so far this gen, games that have taken forever haven't really lived up to the hype, examples : Final Fantasy 13, God Of War 3, Tekken 6.

It's rather games that came fast like GTAIV, MW, Uncharted, Bioshock, MGS4 among others. Some of those even had 2nd iterations which were also successful like, MW2, Uncharted 2, Bioshock 2 and you could say Red Dead Redemption is filling GTAV's void and it's doing it very well.

Enough with the delays, it could really hurt them a bit as I was soooo interested in GT5 this time last year, only to hear it gets postponed to early 2010, now it's late 2010 and yet another delay, I dunno am just annoyed!

I agree that quality comes first. But I think they themselves even admitted that the ground work for this game got started too late. Really, over 4 years for a true GT sequel is a pretty long span for Sony's best selling franchise that helped sell through Playstations for the last 2 console generations.
Today, I believe it's still huge, and it will probably sell better now, but I think Sony could've used a few more AAA games during their first 2-3 years on the market. Quite honestly, the only reason I started playing Forza 3 was because their wasn't a GT to fill the void.

If perfection is key than why is the cockpit view only for premium cars and not every car. How can you have a simulator and have to drive with a bumper cam view? I've already pre-ordered this game, but it is sad to think it took all this time and you don't get the full sim.

I hope for a 3-4 week delay but I'll be happy with what ever poly is comfortable with, as long as it is out before Christmas. I Wish it would be a 1 week delay so I'll have something to do once the football season is over. that's why I liked the nov. 2, my last game is on the 8th.

the delay is due to piracy concerns.
ever since the devices released sony mandated that every game releasing after october 10th had to run on the latest FW, why MoH is the first game that requires it, and is why GT5 was delayed they have to go back and recompile it with the latest SDKs.

no, it does not mean if you have lower than 3.50 you cant play online.
it means if you have lower than 3.50 you cant play the game at all!
it will tell you that you must update the FW to play it.

this will piss allot of people off, and i can see sony getting sued for it.
nowhere when people bought the ps3, did it say you must have a net connection to play the games you buy.
only time will tell.
sony were forcing people to choose between linux or PSN support.
now there forcing people to choose between games or linux.
sony have lost there grace, they use to at least act like they cared about there fans.
now its quite crystal clear they dont!

This is actually something that has happened with other games in the past, and will continue to happen. Certain games - for example, use more memory than is available under older firmware revisions, and so they require a newer revision so that the appropriate system memory is free. Sony has made many advances in their firmware increasing the amount of memory for games with each revision.

There may be another reason with firmware 3.5 to mandate firmware 3.5, but it's not correct to say this has never been done before, or is somehow a slight against GT5 fans in general, it's not.

My Anonymous cowherd, your reaction is just way out there my friend. Many games have minimum firmware requirements for various reasons. Games that use 3D will require specific firmware. Games that allow the use of music from the HDD require a particular firmware. This is normal, and has always been a fact of life with games on the PS3 and other consoles. Don't act otherwise, that's just plain dishonest.

I could have made a damn perfect game in the time it's taking. 2 yes ago I could have been enjoying a game and now still nothing. You dont think if Forza or any other game took this long it wouldn't be amazing? The cars still feel plastic. The damage models are not good! (check even codemasters Grid or Dirt for damage). The racing lines look childish (blue with no arrows or yellow to slow down if u don't know the track). No rewind for the amatuers. And sounds, tire screech and smoke from 2005. It's too big and takes too long to model, physic, sound, damage, mod, and detail 900 cars. He figured this out 7 years ago. It's his last GT game, so he wants it perfect. You need 20 years and unlimited money for that. Not cost effective anymore. Also, regular cars will have NO cockpit view???? Are u kidding? And some cars no interior back view!!! JEEZ!!! Judt put it out and it will be very above average and that's it. There is no shake or G-force rble to the cockpit view, no sense of weight or feel either but at least better than Forza. Have u ever driven a super car around a track? Let alone a full on racing car...your teeth will fall out. So give us you 90% perfect sim/arcade game already!!
