There have been so many different delays for Gran Turismo 5 that we are getting a bit impatient, but now that its creator, Kazunori Yamauchi, has officially given word that GT5 discs are already being stamped, we’re pretty sure that this latest release date may just stick. When will we finally get to play Gran Turismo 5? As soon as we pick it up at midnight on New Year’s Day.

Now, this isn’t official as of yet, but we’re taking the word from game retailers that have updated their sites to indicate that the much-anticipated game will be arriving shortly after Christmas. Great time to use those Best Buy gift certificates you got for the holiday!

The game will cost $59.99 and it’s slated to be the best racing game the world has ever seen. It will pack 1,000 different vehicles, but if you’re really into the game, you can get the $99.99 pack that will give you bunch of goodies, including a book on racing techniques, five DLC cars, a keychain, and a 1:43 scale diecast car. Make that ten DLC cars and you might have a deal Sony.

If you want true driving simulation then you need to move to the PC simulation offerings. Forza and GT are both just realistic driving GAMES.

The PC titles are listed in the article. Gruv may sound a bit whiny, but I think he’s got a point about GT5 calling itself "The Real Driving Simulator" when it’s really not. It’s a game that surrounds itself with simulation type events.
