Gran Turismo 5 Release Update

This is a good news/bad news situation, and we leave it up to you. Would you rather be pessimistic or optimistic? Which source do you choose to believe?

On the one hand, we have today's report from Eurogamer, which finds plenty of mixed information concerning the eventual release of Gran Turismo 5. While one source claims nobody knows when the game will arrive and there "is not much hope" it'll be on store shelves in 2010, European retailers Zavvi and ShopTo have posted December 3 dates for the hotly anticipated racer. Still, GAME says it won't arrive until 2011 and neither Amazon or Play have proposed dates. Also, lest we forget, Sony said we'd get a new launch date before the end of October but that obviously didn't happen, so there may be cause for concern.

Then you've got the other, more promising side of the coin: Jalopnik put the all-important question to Polyphony boss and series creator Kazunori Yamauchi at SEMA, and his reply was encouraging-

"The discs are being stamped as we speak."

They've even got a picture of Yamauchi making the disc-stamping motion with his hands. Now, this latter piece of information comes straight from the horse's mouth and isn't based on random retailer possibilities so perhaps we should pay it more attention. And if it's true, we should see an official release date announcement from Sony very soon...and that announcement, based on Yamauchi's answer, would have to feature a 2010 date, correct?

i give up. Just release it when you release it, whatever. I won't pay no attention to any dates. I have it reserved, so one day it may pop up in my mail box.

Highlander, I played the Hot Pursuit demo, but to be honest, I am not overly impressed with it. Then again I am not much of an arcade racer... I think maybe for a quick spin, some fun I guess why not... but I would prefer deeper experiences like GT5... so I am keeping my money for this...

I completely understand. I like both styles, but they are definitely separate. But since GT5 is still without an arrival date, I decided to grab Hot pursuit to keep me busy. I got a $20 credit with it for my next purchase, so it's effectively only $40 for the game.

Wow, you'll completely abandon the PS3 and all of the other great games it has to offer just because of a delay. Well that's incredibly stupid, especially considering the great number of exclusives coming out next year including the sequel to the game pictured in your avatar.

Even though im not getting GT5 because I like Need For Speed Hot Pursuit much better, I think it's absurd leaving the Playstation family over a delay. Im just sayin'. The sun will still rise tomorrow & set tomorrow. Five years from now you'll see GT6 advertised, you'll be in your 360, regretful...

Well, i personnally trust Kazonuri after watching a few of his race laps on Youtube

I just wish he'd sit with his team in the offices and work till they're positive rather than guessing a date

No doubt it will be a masterpiece - even NFS:Hot Pursuit needs a good polishing, maybe DLC will sort that or a patch but I think they want the game to have no faults at all

they raised it by $10 bucks, whats more retarded is their excuse.

They said the price hike was because exclusive games are getting more expensive to make AND for getting "Timed Exclusive" DLC like call of duty to the 360 users first. so basically the DLC would sway people to buy it on 360 but they will have to pay microsoft to get it early plus the idiotically expensive pricetag activision is going to set on it.

When a game goes gold, means that EVERYONE will buy it. Something like that.

Stamping Discs, means it's getting ready to ship.

I am under the impression that "STAMPED"=GOLD. GOLD meaning that the game is complete. Maybe that was lost in translation. Selling GOLD is record industry terminolog.

Being stamped right now, that's great news. This means it just might make a late November release.
I'm so excited, if this is true then there is no reason GT5 will be delayed until even a late December release.
Does anyone no how long it will take for them to "stamp" all the disks and be ready to ship? It shouldn't take long I don't think... Here's to the Dec. 3rd release date... or sooner(fingers crossed)
