Gran Turismo 5 may be a touchy topic these days after Sony – for the umpteenth time, it seems – once again pulled back the release of the video game from its November 2nd deadline. Obviously, that decision wasn’t met with raucous cheers and high salutes, but with exasperation and resigned frustration. That being said, there’s really nothing any one of us can do about it except exercise a great deal of patience. We’ve come this far, anyway. What’s another month or two?
Since we’re on the topic of waiting, here’s something that we can watch to pass the time. It’s the first commercial of GT5 in its home country of Japan featuring an invasion of Matchbox cars sliding down a giant slide with a “We love cars” jingle accompanying it. And in typical Japanese fashion, the ad is concluded by a high-pitched overly enthusiastic voice over touting the game’s release date.
By the way, don’t get your hopes up with that ’11.03’ image at the end. This ad was released before Sony announced its latest delay so there’s nothing to it.
