Gran Turismo 5 – Coming Q4 2009!

Gran Turismo 5 – Coming Q4 2009!

It seems like all speculations about Gran Turismo 5’s release date can be ended as the late 2009 release is shaping up to be true.

Official Gran Turismo 5 brochures handed out at the GamesCom expo confirm a Q4 2009 release date, the first time that a release date has been officially mentioned. A scan of the German brochure can be found below, the part about the release date should be self-explanatory without speaking the language.

Gran Turismo 5 will be bringing 1000 cars and over 60 tracks to the Playstation 3, including new features such as damage, weather and day/night effects.

    Whoppi-doo, yeaaa, splendid.

    So when I’m not driving iR, I can drive GT. Cool or what.

    Very good news :happy:

    Let’s all hope it’s last showing was extremely old code.

    1000 cars…

    300 of which will be Nissan Skyline’s 😆

    Fully expect Forza to pretty much be “GT Lite” but that’s where I’ve put my flag this generation, so Forza it is for me.

    I will miss you, Gran Turismo.

    I will definitely buy a PS3 and GT5 when it gets released. Back in the day I drove a lot of Gran Turismo 2 on the PSX… man, that was fun! So many cars to collect and, well, the amount of cars was huge. 😀

    The battle between Forza and GT5 shapes up to be close I think… but what does it for me is the Playstation support of Logitech G25. It’s decided right there. Don’t want to have two different steering wheels sitting around – and I definitely don’t want to spend more money buying another wheel just for Forza 3.

  • UncleChuckle

    I don’t think the Forza/GT battle is going to be remotely close. Forza is going to be stomped into the dirt.

    Perhaps it’s because I’ve never played the other Forza titles but I remain suspicious as to whether the game is actually designed for people like me who prefer racing to tuning, painting etc…

    We’ll see I guess. I’m at least looking forward to Forza online and if it’s any good I might try and get the official MS wheel for Christmas.

    If you take out the multiple Skyline’s and other cars in GT, and Forza for that matter, I wonder what the actual legit car count is in both?

    If I had a PS3 I’d be extremely excited for GT’s release. As an Xbox owner, I’m merely slightly excited about Forza.

  • Sodapop

    I don’t know, for some reason Kaz and PD seem to be really scared of Forza this time around. So much so that they are moving GT5’s release date up. It makes me wonder what the hell they took notes on when they crashed the Forza party at E3.

    I’m really going to look forward to all the smack talk/snide remark trading between PD and Turn10 after GT’s release though. It’s going to be awesome.

    Looks like those rumors of a christmas release were true afterall 😮

  • GTking

    Finally! now i can dust the cob webs off the PS3 😆
