Sony confirmed the release date for Gran Turismo 5
) today: November 24 is the date you can circle in your High Polygon Cars of 2010 novelty calendar.
In announcing the new date, Polyphony Digital's Kazunori Yamauchi (pictured above hand-pressing
each and every GT5
disc himself!) said, "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."
And just because we like (and, yes, feel a little sorry for) you, Gran Turismo
superfan #1, we'll point out Amazon's deal of the day: a third-party PS3 steering wheel
, just the thing you need to get ready for GT5
. Should you take Amazon up on its offer, the wheel would be in your home well before November 24, or whatever future date Sony inevitably pushes Gran Turismo 5
