PSXE Poll Update: GT5 In 2009 Is Most Anticipated TGS Event

We expect a horde of big announcements at this year's Tokyo Game Show, but of all the huge reveals we're hoping for, most of you think Polyphony and Sony will give us the news that Gran Turismo 5 will launch before 2009 is out.

We have to agree, simply because we've had all sorts of evidence that semi-proves a 2009 release. If it does launch in time for the holidays, this would provide a huge boost for Sony and the freshly released PS3 Slim. We're already getting Uncharted 2: Among Thieves - which ought to really boost hardware sales all on its own - but if you toss GT5 into the mix, and factor in a few other exclusives, like Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time and Demon's Souls, Sony should have the definite edge. We'd also like to assume that gamers will look down the road into 2010 and see all the other exclusives on tap, which could translate to high hardware sales. Who wouldn't want a PS3 as a holiday gift (provided they didn't already have one)? But this leads us to this week's question: what about the PS3 will be considered most appealing by the typical consumer over the next few months? Remember, while we always like to say, "it's all about the games," there are always other factors to consider.

With Blu-Ray taking a prominent position in the home entertainment marketplace, one could make a definite argument for the built-in Blu-Ray capability and in the same vein, that free PlayStation Network is always a bonus (say "free" to a consumer and that's sometimes enough). But, maybe you're still going with the available - and future - software, or the obvious; the recent price drop. Vote now!

Unfortunately, if the average consumer were capable of researching and comparing the costs of the functionality that the PS3 has, versus the other + whatever standalone/attachable periphery is needed to match said functionality of the PS3...Sony wouldn't be sitting where they are right now. Sadly, they just care about the price tag.
