Breaking News from E3: Gran Turismo 5 will be coming to the Playstation 3 on November 2nd  2010 in North America and Latin America!

Sony revealed the release date on their anual E3 Entertainment Expo press conference after showing a brand new Gran Turismo 5 video trailer. The release date was specifically mentioned to be for the American versions, neither a European nor a Japanese release date have been mentioned.

The action-packed video trailer contained several new gameplay scenes featuring most cars that have been seen before, including NASCAR action at Indianapolis, Super GT cars, the Nordschleife, the Top Gear Test Track and rallying. Furthermore, the trailer showed first impressions of the long-awaited day & night cycle, leaving only weather as last to be confirmed feature.

Furthermore, the trailer revealed a partnership with Red Bull as both Sebastian Vettel and Adrian Newey could be seen in the video as well as Kazunori Yamauchi being on site at Red Bull’s headquarters hinting at the inclusion of Red Bull’s Formula One car.

The Collectors Edition will include the game, a 1:43 scale model of the Nissan GT-R V-Spec, a 300+ pages handbook with info on the cars and driving techniques as well as a coupon code for five DLC cars.
