Delay after delay after delay has hampered the release of, what could be, the greatest driving game in the world. On the U.S Playstation blog, the manager of public relations for Sony has just announced the wait is over andGran Turismo 5 would be here on November 24th.
Not only did we receive conformation on the glorious date that is November 24th, but Kazunori Yamauchi, the President of Polyphony Digital Inc., also had his own message to send to the world of excited and impatient gamers. Here’s what he had to say...
"Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious project, with challenges and complexities which have made it our version of the Apollo Space Program! When we created the original Gran Turismo back in 1997, we wanted to set a completely new precedent for the racing genre.
With the technological leap onto PlayStation 3, our objective with Gran Turismo 5 was to create another great revolution which would not only satisfy our own high expectations, but would meet or even exceed the anticipation of the fans.
Satisfying the loyal Gran Turismo followers is at the heart of all of our efforts, which is why it was such a difficult decision to delay the release of the game, and one which we did not take lightly.
I can only apologize to everyone for making you wait so long, and I hope that when you try out the wealth of driving experiences available in Gran Turismo 5, you will not be disappointed.”
With 1000 cars, countless tracks and some sensational graphics, we are already getting antsy.
