Gran Turismo 5 Release Coming Late 2009

GTPlanet is reporting that James Armstrong, Sony's chief executive in southern Europe, has informed the Spanish newspaper El Financiero that their highly anticipated racing sim, Gran Turismo 5, will be released in Europe by Christmas 2009. (The juicy bits are in the last paragraph of El Financiero's article. For those of you who don't read Spanish there's always the cut & paste Babel Fish method.)

GTPlanet's article goes on to speculate this would probably mean a late summer release in Japan and late fall/early winter releases in the U.S. and Europe. There's also mention of a new game under development, but little can be learned about the title from the quote.

Follow this link to read the full article and translated quote.

I feel like Gran Turismo has lost it's relevance. No doubt I'll be proven wrong.

Polyphony Digital should make a Duke Nukem kart racer.

Where the hell is GT for PSP? You know that game they showed "gameplay footage" of back at the E32004 launch for the handheld?

How long have they been making this?

Are we all still caught up in realistic car simulation?

I myself couldn't ever get into GT at all.

I'm kinda burnt out on racers. Forza2, DIRT, GRID and the NfS Series got me covered.

I think it would have been more tempting to buy a PS3 for this if it launched a year ago.

heh What happened to the GT respect? Late 2009 is good news to me, I was expecting it much later, as Bloodpack was insinuating. I won't be surprised to see this pushed back, but it should be worth the wait regardless.

You might be referring to GT5 Prologue. I wouldn't say it's a full game, but I wouldn't call it a demo either. I have it, bust it out now and again. Enough features to personally justify the cost, considering the wait on GT5.

As for taking too long, I'd rather they focus on the quality and take their time in releasing it. Multiplayer in GT4 was a bit bugged, which was disappointing seeing as intended multiplayer features were supposedly the cause for all the delays. Hurt the replay value a bit; you clock in a few hundred hours solo play and you get to wanting to play with friends, only to find out almost all of your FR custom tunes are bugged. Seeing your highly tuned S7 doing 70 in 6th gear because the rear tires won't grip is harsh, and that cocky bastard you play with laughing about his AWD superiority at the same time is just adding insult to injury. I don't mind a little extra wait in the newest iteration of the best racing game series.

Blasphemy. Forza 2 can be in the comparison up there, if you really want it to be, but the other three aren't the same kind of racer. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of DiRT and GRID, but they aren't Gran Turismo by a mile. Need for Speed on the other hand has been disappointment after disappointment since the third one for me. Of course, the knowledge that GT5 would (obviously/eventually) be released for PS3 was the largest factor in my decision to purchase a PS3 over a 360 (when certain games hit that forced the choice), so I may be somewhat biased on all opinions stated above.

Gran Turismo lost all relevance when Forza came out. Forza (and many other games released since then) taught console gamers what pc gamers knew all along - that GT was far from being a sim and was deeply flawed and behind the times.

Good riddance to stupid license structure, invisible walls, rubber band/drive on rails A/I, no damage modeling and online features 5 years behind the times. The only thing GT ever came close to getting right was time trials and that's just not enough.

I know that GRID, DiRT and the NfS series can't be compared to GT5, but as it is I have less time every month and at least 2 new, good racers a year.

Btw, the last NfS that really hit the feeling was Hot Pursuit 2 in my opinion.

I strongly disagree. What did forza do that GT didnt? Crashes? Better Spinout animations? Forza is good but none of those things make a good racer. GT1 through 4 proved that. GT 2 had a better (IMO) feel of driving on a real road. Forza has always been floaty.

I think GT pretty much accomplishing its mission is why it is not as relevant anymore. GT4 was perfect. Forza 1 or 2 isnt better and GT5 prologue is no better.

GT is very identifiable with Sony...it's late, and it will surely be disappointing.
