While the crickets in our head continue to chirp as we “patiently” wait for the release of Gran Turismo 5, Sony has nonetheless made one thing official as it relates to the game. Unfortunately for all of us, it’s still not the official release date. After reports started circulating a few months back that the Mercedes SLS AMG Gullwing would be the car-of-choice to grace the cover of GT5, Sony officially confirmed it after releasing the cover of their hotly-anticipated 5th generation racing game.

While we applaud Sony for picking a worthy car to headline GT5, we still have no clue as to when the game will officially hit stores, which leads to more hours of staring at screen shots, watching demo videos, and playing GT5: Prologue on our PS3s. At the very least, we now know what the game looks like from the outside, which, in hindsight, doesn’t really do much in appeasing our starving appetite to play the game.

From someone who participates in autocross, your description of over steer despite not changing steering, etc., sounds very lifelike. This happens in real life due to imperfections in the surface.

this new grand turismo is a good deal for everyone. There are just lots of new things added. Not to mention the new Mercedes supercar will be exciting.

Doesn’t really matter who gets to be the cover of the game. Its been so long now that a lot has been anticipating the launch of the game. I wonder what’s taking them so long.

The thought of the release of the Gran Turismo 5 pisses me of. I was really expecting of it but they halt it. Hope there will be a definite time soon. Thanks for this news, I somehow had a relief.

Even though I want to argue with that, maybe I can take it to see AMG system on GT5. Of course it’s one of the most exciting car game on the Playstation game console especially on this upcoming release of GT5 in Playstation 3. I can’t wait to play the game and beat all of my friends.
