Just got word of more disappointing news coming out of Sony, the long-awaited follow up to the hugely successful Gran Turismo 4, Gran Turismo 5, has been delayed again from its supposed release date of November 2nd.
The title has gone through a lot over the past couple of years, in fact, I remember getting excited about it back when it was first announced as being one of the launch titles for the Playstation 3 console and this delay has just taken the biscuit for me.
I mean much more of this and we’re going to be heading into Duke Nukem Forever territory…although I suppose even that has been resurrected from the dead once more, so there’s always hope!
However, don’t fret if you’re wanting it for Christmas, as Sony promises to deliver what is undoubtedly going to be a chart topper come this holiday season, although no word on an exact release date just yet…so whether you’re expecting to be The Stig racing around the Top Gear test track on Gran Turismo 5 this Christmas morning depends on whether you believe Sony’s latest announcement.
So, just let us know in the comment section below exactly how impatient you’re becoming to get your hands on the Sony Computer Entertainment title. Do you think these continued delays are justified now we’re into the era of downloadable updates to tweak and improve games after release?
Without any shadow of a doubt Gran Turismo 5 will be greatest driving simulation on any games console, but do you actually believe that we’ll actually end up getting this in time for Christmas?
