Gran Tusimo 5 release date - 12/31/2010?
Posted 11/02/2010 11:15 AM Post a reply Quote this post View Kerr's info
Hey all, I just received an e-mail from Amazon, which is where I placed my pre-order for Gran Turismo 5. It states that the game releases on 12/31/2010. Talk about stretching the definition of "Holiday Season 2010"! I've thus far been unable to officially confirm this date on the web. Has anyone else received a pre-order notification e-mail similar to mine?

I called my game-stop to confirm my pre order... they said there's no defined date but suspect early to mid November, I think a surprise release on Friday after Thanksgiving would be cool

Update: Saw on Sony.com that the release date is 12-2010 doesnt give a day...

Kerr, don't trust stores because they know nothing more than we do.

When I was at the GT Awards ceremony, Wednesday night, this is what was said on stage:

"Tonight is even more special because they tell me we are just one month away from the release of the highly anticipated 5th version of Gran Turismo, GT5. One month, everybody." SEMA 2010 GT Awards ceremony

I transcribed that off my tape and no specific date was given.
Cheers,

MasterGT

Have fun while you race others. If you don't why are you racing in the first place?

maybe if someone could post the resale value to a lot of the top resale value cars, that would help a lot us with money. i like to buy everything i like to challenge different cars with different mods, doing all kinds of weird tests and it costs a lot of money. so i know theres that 265k special course car you can win, but im also wondering if there are other cars that are worth more or close, cuz i can win any race, so im wondering if theres a quicker way to win money or cars that have better resale value that might not be worth it but might be FUN. i dunno i just think if someone maybe a list that would be cool. like top 50 resale value cars or something. i know its a lot of work but so i this site, im sure im someone would step up, i hope.

thanks alot for reading,

- Eric.

This justin, I'm on the friends list of lemans karting here in CA on facebook, here was an article...
Posted Nov, 10
http://www.autoblog.com/2010/11/10/from-virtual-to-reality-gt5s-red-bull-x1-prototype-jump/?ref=nf

Polyphony's Gran Turismo games tread the line between fantasy and reality with the balance of a trapeze artist. Not only are the games themselves a close approximation of reality, but once in a while, reality jumps out of the digital world and into the tangible.

A couple of years ago the game's creators worked with the French automaker to give birth to the GTbyCitroŽn Ė a supercar designed specifically for the game. But then they made it into a concept car and put it on display. And while it never came to be, they even considered a limited production run.

The latest collaboration brought the recently-crowned world champion Red Bull Racing team on board for the X1 prototype. Again, an extreme high-performance vehicle designed specifically for the game Ė this time a vision of what an F1 car could be if not for all the pesky regulations. Initial reports that the car is powered by a turbine engine are now being corrected to an F1-derived, direct-injection, twin-turbo V6. Fortunately, the 1483-horsepower output remains.

Actually building the X1 into a functioning track car would be a little pointless and undoubtedly extremely expensive, but they have made a full-size mock-up that will be unveiled during the game's launch party, scheduled (don't hold your breath) for Madrid in a few weeks' time. Here's hoping GT5 can follow that same fantasy-to-reality trajectory and land in our hands on (the revised and revised again) schedule.


thats it, a couple weeks

GT5 will be released November 24th, in the US.

It was just announced a few minutes ago on the US blog.
