The official sate for a US launch is 24th November 2010. And this time it’s not a rumor. This is pretty much official, and in case you still think that we are blabbering, here’s a statement from Kazunori Yamauchi, the President of Polyphony Digital
“Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious project, with challenges and complexities which have made it our version of the Apollo Space Program! When we created the original Gran Turismo back in 1997, we wanted to set a completely new precedent for the racing genre.
With the technological leap onto PlayStation 3, our objective with Gran Turismo 5 was to create another great revolution which would not only satisfy our own high expectations, but would meet or even exceed the anticipation of the fans.
Satisfying the loyal Gran Turismo followers is at the heart of all of our efforts, which is why it was such a difficult decision to delay the release of the game, and one which we did not take lightly.
I can only apologize to everyone for making you wait so long, and I hope that when you try out the wealth of driving experiences available in Gran Turismo 5, you will not be disappointed.”
So dust up your PS3, and get in top shape, for once you get hooked to this one, you’re going to stay hooked for months, With an unbelievable spread of tracks, cars and situations to choose from, Gran Turismo 5 will need a truly committed fan before being completely mastered…
