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?
