Gran Turismo 5 now has an October release date… not official though

CostCo

US retail giant, Costco, has gone against the grain and published a pre-release order date of the 27th of October for Gran Turismo 5.

This is not any more official than the 27th of November release date that GameStop posted and could simply have been a case of fat fingers when the techie was posting in the details onto the website.

In other news… GT5 is 4 years old next month, we should maybe bake it a cake.

    why do you guys always tease gt5, why dont you leave it alone and just play forza, i mean honestly who gives you the right, i hope sony black balls you guys for all your hate speech, its not even funny, wheres the alan wake jokes, or the splinter cell jokes they took just as long and they did not release 5 other games in the same time ! tourist trophy, gtpsp,gt5 prologue, gthd,gt academy 2010!

    im getting sick and tired of all your hate speech and was contemplating getting some peeps at gtplanet to help me hack your site and delete all your gt content. i think that is a fair proposition. you dont have to force yourselves to write gt articles anymore!

      You really do love this game don’t you :happy:

      And we always tease GT5 as it was meant to be a PS3 launch title… that’s funny…

      Sony also do not black ball us because they can see that we post quality content :wub:

    RSA-Ace im not saying anything that is crazy it just makes me mad that you guys always slag gt5, do you know how much crap that creates, you get these uninformed people from van der bilj, who read this bile and take it as gospel, spread misinformation, and all the ignorant moms and dads, and yuppie fools get tricked by these lame fanboy wars and avoid the game!

    there is no such thing as a joke! there are only insults!

      Don’t get my post wrong – I’ll get GT5 on release day. I’m constantly following up on the technology used and details about the game.

      I’ve also defended the whole delayed all the time statements (because it’s only really had one official release date, everything else has just been speculation). Plenty of games have been delayed or in development for as long as GT5 so I don’t really see the big deal

      But as for the site being fanboys and always posting negative stories about gt5 (or ps3) that is rubbish. Like this post – there really isn’t anything horrible being said (a little comedy at the end yes) so there isn’t any reason for you to freak out like you do.

      I think you just need to relax or don’t come back? I mean if all the stories here are negative then what are you doing here.

      You make me, a Sony Playstation fan, feel like an idiot.

        i google anything that is gt i go to virtualr.net to n4g to google news anywhhhheeeeereeee. it just seems this is the easiest place to protect and convert misguided souls. honestly i dont think im over reacting. i mean there subltly using subliminal messages to make us think that we are fools for waiting for gt and we should rather just by forza 3! i see it, if you piece together all the one liner insults in all the gt article s you will see the paragraphs and paragraphs of anti gt propaganda.

            no because im not crazy, this is a issue of passion and protecting what made gt so great, i really dont give a damm about gaming in general but you cross me on gt5/Metal gear solid(not multiplatform crap) your asking for it!

            its because of people like you that we have had the most steller franchises became absolute trash ridge racer, final fantasy 13, tekken 6 all ruined because of people like you. its only now idiots like namco have woken up after there 300 million dollar loss and have decided to spew 5 ps3 exclusives with more to come all the passion of the 90s have dissipated into mcdonald’s/microsoft mediocrity and you guys revel in it. you would not know what a quality racing game is if it bit you on the face! i mean honestly.

          I think you try read between the lines a bit too much. You talking about subliminal messaging on a south african gaming site?

          So what if the lazygamer guys prefer forza 3? Does that even matter. If it really is good as you say then the game should buy itself…

            see RSA-ACe thats there game plan to get you to buy forza 3 and pretend that forza is so good, but they dont point out the many flaws that it has! watch i will show you how immature gaming press are. they will tear gt5 to pieces i know it, they will be a slew of 7s and 8s and will be brutalized wheareas forza will be praised its only because of people like me that keep the gt brand strong. i mean turn 10 even bribe people to vote on polls and if you say anything slightly negative on their forums you ge threatened and banned wtf!

    Lazygamer has never slated GT5.

    I mean, how do you slate a game that doesn’t technically exist… for the last 4 years?

    eXp stop trying to be clever! the fact the gt5 has a name, and a full description of what it is , makes it a tangible object! and lazygamer have been stealth attacking/spewing thinly veiled insults gt5 for years.

    All i do is return balance to the force. I protect the integrity and pedigree of gt5, coz if it was left to you people. forza 3 would be the best racing game we could ever get, and that to me is like substituting chocolate with processed poo that has been moulded like chocolate, which is not ideal as i have standards.

      Well truth be told the Xbox 360 had the premier racing sim delivered on neg gen consoles now from may 2007 to
      will it be December 2010. That is 3 and a half years.

      So for 3.5 years the xbox was / were king, and we are glad the ps3 will at long last get a good / great racing sim game.

        [cue music]

        forzaaaa 3 only hasss 8 cars on track, and a terrible wheel, and bad online,

        it tries so hard but looks so bad with its greasy cars and track shown disproportianately

        , ohhhh what is a gamer to do. forza 3 with its lameo tracks i mean what a scam, they promise 100 tracks but you get only really get 20 whats the deal with that. oh forza 3 even have dlc driver animations, there not much else to say, and when all else fails what can turn 10 do? theres’ DLC and dlc and even more DLC. and the best part is if i dont have a hard drive, i get leesssss content than GRID, so for me the decision is made and its clear to see eeeeee that forza is poo poo

    Rumour is it that GT5 is coming out on multiple discs and Kazunori Yamauchi is delaying the release date due to selecting the best place to change discs mid race.

    He does not want to upset the players too much.

        Bobby Kotick would just like to say, that he only eats sushi. Of course this may explain why he makes such strange statements, because fish tapeworms are nasty buggers (and more so) when they reach the brain… :ninja:

    Lans, I am a little sad. I just realised that when GT5 finally releases, the future people are going to beam you back to their time, and we will never see you again.

    Well, depends, if you are only from 2020 we will probably hear from you about the release of GT6. :ninja:
