Sony Rep: GT5 Planned for October 2010

March 15th, 2010 by Jordan

According to an Italian gaming site, a Sony representative at last week’s Game Developers Conference informed them the company was looking to release Gran Turismo 5 in October of this year. While GT5 received little attention at the show, Sony’s marketing vice president, Peter Dille, re-affirmed the game would release this year. Of course, October also fits nicely within the “fall” release window mentioned by European Sony executive James Armstrong last month.

This gives Sony plenty of time to establish themselves in the 3D television market over the summer, providing the platform to introduce GT5 as the technology’s “killer app” at the start of the popular holiday buying season. While we must be wary of this somewhat anonymous source of information, it lines up with everything else we’ve been hearing as of late. Time will, as always, tell.

    Yup, more than enough time to get tired of Forza…and thats not happening soon. @ whoever said it, the games physics are quite ok… and its gonna be a YEAR before GT5 “allegedly” comes, so might as well did it and im quite happy about the decision… pretty sweet game, higly recommend it

    wow alot of silly immature people here. you have been waiting for 5 years why cant you wait till fall for the game? is gran turismo the only thing missing in your life? you guys need to step outside and get some fresh air.

    there’s more to life than simply crying and whining like little kids about a friggin videogame.

    It better come out in october or THERE WILL BE HELL TO PAY.

    3D tv will rock

    Great games are never released during the summer so June/July/August will never happen anyway

    October 2010 seems reasonable!

    Man!I cannot wait any longer (i know i will) But october seems so far away… A nice media blowout would be very welcome until then

    @slaphappygunner

    yeah i would buy an exbox + forza right now if i hadent investen on ps3 so much..

    hd tvs?? come on sony u arent looking at the bigger picture..

    @P37Mac

    i dont think they have that pleasure bro..
    the sony company is doing them a big favour as far as im concerned..
    if the game was perfect it would have been released at once but it clearly needs improving..
    the graphics may have been perfect but it must have been unplayable..

    besides PD have done a poor job with this title.. i mean with 60 million spent… at least get the fact right and have a good development plan.. they have spent far too much milking their company reputation and have been mesing around far too much with those stupid academy & crap..

    @P37MAc, you really think missing the Christmas 2009 window will hurt the lifetime sales figures of GT5?! lol

    One more thing; PD and Sony missing the Christmas 2009 window… FAIL.

    I’m sure he will correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t the 3D thing Jordans opinion not Sony’s statement? Worst case scenario is that Sony has told PD that they want to release the game for christmas buyers this year after missing out on that period in ’09. Game is probally ready for launch at the moment but PD now has a large part of his team with nothing to do so they (like Jordan said) will probally keep themselves busy with new features like 3D. What would you rather they do, sit on the finished game or continue to improve it?

    I’ll put it this way… right now I’m 10 lbs overwheight and I’m dieting and working out at the gym (was 20 lbs over not long ago). I think that, at this pace, I’m gonna be looking like Arnold in his prime when this game finally releases…

    @The Masfer

    well i would back that idea of not for the PSP itself… the game had the best graphics but this revealed the psps true power..

    the no1 downside why i sold the game back as soon as possible was cuz the load times were unreal.. and i think there wont be any chance in hell they can decrease the load times withot decreasing the quality of the graphics!!!!!! and even if they did its 1 hell of a poring game on the psp…

    so on second thought that is an aweful idea and i wont back PD to produce a miracle.. how can i… the company is in decline.. only cuz they betraded their fans.. cuz if gt5 was average if it had been released at the begining of this year the fans will still be providing a lifeline….!!!!!!stupid douchebags!!!!!

  14. Mar. 15, 11:15am

    Of course I get deployed in September… Release might as well be October 2011 as far as Im concerned… fail.

    I heard that there is a gtpsp2 in development

  17. Mar. 15, 10:48am
    kaito

    i cannot believe how low PD are getting to release this game….
    personally i think the new GT5 engine is the worst ever… && they might even have to restart..cuz millions of people will buy it and i understand a lot of people wil buy it because they have the steering wheel and seat perhaps but…

    i wont be buying a wheel… cuz i am getting old (20) and i rarely play video games anymore.. i bought killzone, uncharted, fifa 09, dirt and metal gear.. and out of those lot only metal gear is playable.. i honestly wont touch the others and new releases like god of war & final fan are just the same old games… u dont get the freedom as MG.. and i hate playing throught a set route… althought red dead redemption will be the best thing ever…

    anyways back to GT5… i honestly dont get why proloug was rated highly cuz it was not a fun game to play… i think now a game like GT4 is not realistic anymore.. graphics alone is not a winning formula.. anyways.. all im saying is the car feelis like floating and i hate PD now… i hope the game fails so that every1 can get on with their lives…

    PS: are even the japanese public being left in the dark like us.. surely PD has to show some loyalty and release some info?!?!?!

    The longer they keep pushing back the launch, the bigger disappointment I fear GT5 could be.

    tyl0r_r

    at this point the game needs a world wide launch no matter what. racing sims aren’t heavy rain or final fantasy and there’s not a million pages of dialog. the game was supposed to be out pretty much now, no excuse for not having it translated by october.

    october is a long way out, sad to see the release date so far… any more delays will be just unacceptable.

    I will not buy a new HDTV 3D, a Freaking Mercedes Benz sls AMG, head tracking, or playstation move.

    My Sony Bravia 32″ XBR 1080p and my G25 is more than enough for me.

  21. Mar. 15, 10:15am
    shwtt

    I think it is 2011, but i do hope if Oct is true, it will be a worlwide launch not just in Japan only.

    tvensky

    yes, most of U are 100% right.. this 3D tehnology is too soon for GT5, it could be in GT6 or something.. we dont have a normal racing game for a 3 years now for PS3 (everything else is amateur s**t) :)

    I will not buy a new TV for one game (even GT5)

    steering wheel, eye toy, HD TV and thats about it for now…

    and all this release thing… dosnt matter, it will change 10 times from now… 100% sure!

  23. Mar. 15, 10:01am

    This isn’t official.

    Screw 3D television.

    Release the damn game once for all.

    FishforRent

    3d will have the same problem HD initially had, LIMITED CONTENT and bandwidth issues. CBS, NBC, and SONY have been developing (liberties taken with this word) this over the past year in the background. The SuperBowl, Winter Olympics, among others had 3d broadcasts and this summer the World CUP will have 3d broadcasts, that NO-ONE will see, because it still doesn’t work properly.

    Plus it all has to be shot with 3d cameras, just like it did when HD was being developed. And that all goes back to infrastruture costs. (GLOBAL RECESSION/DEPRESSION anyone???) Will it hit mainstream? Maybe, but it will only be accepted when it can be ‘consumed’ without having to WEAR a device on your FACE to enjoy it and that is not even close to being perfected.

    Who loses? The Consumer, AS ALWAYS!!!!

    Don’t they all know that we consumers are simple and don’t mind paying for things multiple times? Release the game, we’ll buy. Release the game in 3d, we’ll buy again. Release the game in 12D with holographic support we’ll buy AGAIN.

    Electronics Marketers are sooo dumb. This could be a CASH COW multiple times. UNLESS……

    It still doesn’t work right????????

    I`m wondering if there is some microsoft employees undercover working at Sony, because the decisions they make cannot possibly be worse. If I had stock in this company I would sell it fast!! Damn how is it really possible to be this stupid?? Not even willing to give the fans some real information about all this, this is my last Playstation console thats for sure.

    hello, i think it´s a incineration that we, who admire GT5 have too wait for many other release dates, till they release the game!! They should show us real in-game scenes and gameplay of a new damage system or new cars, tracks, the weather system. I think we´ve been patient enough and they should state the releas date officially. It´s boring just to show identical videos which show nearly the same cars and no new features, either we need new features for our eyes or the game in our hands!!! :)

    greetings

    surely some advisor has said to PD/Sony your pissing on your fan base get on with it

    The release date would be a unique date. This is a new promotional goal from Sony to achieve more result by PS3 users.

  32. Mar. 15, 9:00am

    Seriously, why can it not be released for the summer? They have to push it to the end of the year, as if we all haven’t waited long enough. Why not release it on Dec. 31st at 11:59!

  33. Mar. 15, 8:52am
    jdejes

    I’m really dissapointed at all this. The least you expect is to have KY having a press conference or designating a PD Public Relationship officer to handle this things. They have created a massive fan base and they’re like not giving a damn about us fans.

    This is getting laughable, don’t get your hopes up guys, only yesterday I was reading that a Sony exec said we would have the game soon. Soon is not 7 months from now when you have been waiting for 3+ years. This will only end up with more disappointed people as without an official statement it will probably end up being another “golden carrot” Sony is not handling this well.

    Just think about it.. It’s the best of times for the bad people :|

    The Black marked will be loaded with 3DTV’s in October.. To a Nice price for you master!!! aHahahaha Ohh my G♥D Life is simple, but yet Sony makes it so complicated .. :O)

    i bellieve fail is the time for ps move and only…all marketing will focus on that…gt5 will realease in 6/2010 or 7/2010…with the 3d tv’s …this is the best marketing …

    F*ck 3D thingies.. like every1 has the money to buy a new sony tv… couldnt they just skip the 3D for later? i was hoping for a release this summer :( but well.. I HATE SONY!

    Ok Peps.. This is possible.. Thanks for the info, I will rest my nerves, and oil my limbs, and hopefully I can get out of bed and buy this – This ? what is it called again ? GT? hmm Damn I’m getting so old by waiting that i can’t even remember what it’s called any more .. was it 5 or 5½ or 4½..

    I read most of the comments here but it seems they all talk about the same thing.

    I think October or somewhere “fall” is a great target, however, the title says “Planned” so its just a plan. But also we have TDU2 coming in fall too :D :D :D .. that’s what I’m talking about

  45. Mar. 15, 7:00am

    Just imagine how much better GT5 will be with Move and 3D shutter glasses. I’m so excited about sticking things to my head for an even more realistic gaming experience!

    Who dares to say it’s not worth the delays? Me?

    I’d rather spend 1000 € on a GT Academy style week-end than a new TV and some funny plastic toys, although I welcome the idea of head-tracking for a more natural field of view to be fair.

    So October it is then? Yeah, right.

  46. Mar. 15, 6:51am

    i really hope the game doesnt sell………… i know i am asking for something thats not gonna happen………. but i wish on a star this game doesnt sell.. sadly i am gonna be one of the first persons who copp it.

    Sony:
    Please buy a PS3, for GT5
    Please buy head tracking system for GT5
    Please buy move system for GT5
    Please buy 3D tv for GT5

    …and then perhaps we will release the game!! or new system to play with

  48. Mar. 15, 6:37am
    joe

    3D? Really? Come on! I’d rather have the game delayed for indy cars than 3D, or better yet not delayed at all. PD is such a joke.

    After reading the 40 some comments above…i agree with all of them. This is a retarded wait if it is for 3d. I bought a ps3 years ago now…back when the 80gb was the biggest and chrome accents with touch sensitive buttons were used lol.

    And will i buy a 3d tv? Never. Its a stupid technology. Its as pointless as those mini-cds of the 90’s. (they work, but why use it??)

    Now, if i was waiting for a holographic tv…hell yes. 3d…dont care.

    I JUST want the flippin GAME!!!!!

    “I also have bad news for Sony. I bought a Xbox360 and Forza 3 to pass the time away and I think Im definitely going to be able to finish it before GT is available for purchase. Isnt that sad?”
    Yeah it’s sad because Forza is Rubbisch.

  51. Mar. 15, 6:02am
    TokyoDrift

    Yeah yeah, GT5 will release by “x”, we’ve all heard it before. October for where then, Japan? What about US and EU?

    As for 3D, I highly doubt that many people who have bought a HDTV recently (as in the last two or three years) are going to want to swap again. Of those that could be in the market for a new TV, how many of those are going to own a PS3 as well? Of those, how many people don’t suffer headaches when watching 3D for extended periods? Of those, how many people really care about 3D, truly?

    The market for GT fans who want the game in 3D is tiny, so them using it as a “showcase” for the technology are doing nothing but making the GT fans wait pointlessly.

    I totally buy this story…

    It’s such a valuable marketing opportunity they’d be stupid not to take it.

    The only problem is, no one really cares about 3D tv’s and 99% of GT fans wont be forking out to upgrade.. so the biggest loser in this debacle is the loyal GT fanbase.

    I suppose there’s one benefit… I wont be stuck indoors during the summer playing GT5.

    Yey. :-|

    Right, ive had enough, ive stopped playing on my ps3 and gt5 is the only reason why i still have it. march 2010 was bad and long enough a wait but October!!! sorry, good bye sony, actually not good bye, just bye.

    Un-Happy Chap

    Never felt compelled to post before but am so fed up with this. PD/Sony have erroded all the good will they created (which ws a lot – I’e gone from orginal GT to GT5P – in fact I’ve only bought a PS for GT, and I’ve only ever bought new PS’s when a new release of GT was available – so I’m one of those people for who the games shifts hardware).

    It’s a worrying time for a company when their customers think they’re being treated badly. PD/Sony should rightly be worried.

  58. Mar. 15, 5:14am

    Ps3 for 199.- along with GT5 will give the system a boost in 2011. But for me, as day 1 owner of the PS3 this is simply not fair. According to Kaz, PD and Sony I should be playing GT5 for at least 3 years now…
    I have to repeat myself, but this is a desaster and I do believe that lots customers are pissed off by the poor entrepreneurial sense Kaz and Sony have shown with GT5.

    This is about the fifth attempt they’ve had at releasing this game and I’ve got no reason to think that it won’t end like all the others.

    Without a proper date nailed down this is as unreliable and meaningless as anything that comes from Sony and PD.

    If I’m not playing the game on 1st of December , I’m never going to buy it . Seriously Sony is starting to piss me off .Delaying the game ,because of 3D is the biggest BS I’ve heard . These TV’s cost more than 2 thousand bucks each , do they think that 3d is going to matter for 95% of the ppl who buy the game ?

    The funniest part will be that the announced cover car, the Mercedes SLS, will be very old news by the time this thing ships.

    How many more GT fans, who bought GT5P on the day of release and have eagerly waited ever since, will have DIED before it’s finally available?

    I don’t like the word Planned. Japan release was also planned. But enough with painting the devils on the walls.
    Let’s hope this is near the actual release date.
    And i don’t think it’s Sony marketing division which jucks up. Sony clearly stated that it’s hurt them bad that they CAN not release Gt right now, which suggest production or developement issues. And the godfather of digiracing kaz is a perfectionist with a lot of freedoms given by Sony which can create a lot of problems.
    Perfectionist deliver proper work but you need patience

    Shame its been held up for 3D if that’s true. People are struggling with work and jobs and the chances of lots of people ditching their current HDTV to get a 3D one is pretty slim. GT5 will be popular but I hope Sony isn’t relying too much on this, I mean you need a PS3 and be interested in racing games then go out and buy a new TV, we aren’t talking a lot of customers there.

    I would release GT5 normally and either add 3D later via DLC or bring out a smaller game like prologue but in 3D

    This is like the fifth time we’ve heard a “release date” from an obscure article. When Kaz comes on and says “We will release GT5 in ____” then I’ll be satisfied

    But really, what’s taking so long?

    It’s really annoying how Sony is doing their marketing business, as what I had said from the other news section, they really are F””%@$ up big time with Gran Turismo 5. I’m sure it will sell millions, but what about those other loyal fans that have already bought the competition. I’m sure there are a lot of them, and I’m positive that GT5 won’t sell better than GT4 did. And I’m sure the waiting had it’s effect in a lot of loyal GT fans.

    —Stone—

    I love how Sony uses the word “planned”

    …It’ll be like this.

    Sonyspinman: We plan to release Gran Turismo 5 in October 2010. Countless hours of precision, fine tuning, very meticulous attention to detail… not only the cars, the physics, interior models, but the tracks, the roads, the pavement, the tires, the enviroments of the tracks etc

    The combination of one blade of grass, one pebble in the road, three clouds in the sky all have more polygonal counts than that “other console racer.. errr Forza 3? have in their entire polygonal count added up. Truely amazing on what PD have put together.

    Sonyspinman continues to list and tout whats in the game blahbibbityblah says suprises are in order. We get to play Kaz’s passion, his masterpiece all finally in October 2010…..
    …..

    Hearing all that we are wetting our knickers, laying in bed alseep on our backs while our feet are raised, bent at the knees, our hands as if on a steering wheel, making car noises as if we are playing Gran Turismo, fanboys running out of the word works, taking any piece of Gran Turismo media articles and rubbing in the faces of other haters/fanboys. Running to place preorders, running down to buy a playstation 3 (if that person doesnt own one already), hunting down a logitech g25 or g27 etc etc etc. Posting happy pleasantries on various boards about GT5. When driving down the road and looking ahead, the night trailer song pops into head and a big 5 takes shape………….

    Until grim news (but no suprise) that the news from Sonyspinman or some other messenger of videogame gloom says “Well, we had planned to release GT5 in October, being 31 days in October… we thought that would be ample time, coupled with the game’s development time to finally release GT5. However, things did not go according to plan… and the release is now tentative………………………

    (and this is the part where Sony/PD does not want you to know about)
    That it is delayed once again because of the top secret ps3 racer and seeing what top secret ps3 racer has to offer etc etc or some such… probably something like sonyspinman control of saying “Kaz didnt like how the mud physics does not seem real, or perfect enough when it is kicked up and sticking to cars or windows, or the helmet of the driver(is theres a busted windshield)… so he wants to fix that. So if that goes according to plan… expect a release date in march of 2011.

    …duely note this as idiocy, if you prefer…. but a tiresome, sarcastic point of view from a person who just wants the damn game to really come out in October, or a surprise to up all and released in June/July.

    I personally think theyre adding and perfecting Bob Ross mode. A mode where the graphics are changed (toggled) to a Bob Ross like painting… beautiful mountain vistas, rivers along side of the track, waterfalls cascading down in the background and as you drive by… your car winshield gets misted and…… Happy little trees shading the tracks and happy clouds dotting the sunshine bright skies.

    I think we need a poll regarding all those users who still plan on getting Gt5 and also have no plans to get a 3d tv this year or the next. It would be interesting to see, that’s for sure.
    If it is held back for 3d implementation, then it’s a real shame that it can’t be an optional patch you only need to download if you have a fancy tv.

    The game has been done for a while. The rest is just marketing.

    They are adding “Move” and 3D support to GT5. Who gives a ****! Just release it, noone will use these feutures anyway!
    They better use the extra time to implement feutures the fans are waiting for, and not the crap that Sony wants.

    And since the release dates announced by Sony aint ever right, you should reverse the announcements. So whatever happens GT5 wont be released in October this year.

    This is getting really old. A product can constantly made better in development but what’s the point if it is never released? Plus, user feedback and actual use are sometimes more valuable than internal development.

    Just file this news tidbit in the “Release Date Lies” file. Even the author of this article doesnt believe it. I would love to say that only if PD said it was going to be released in Oct 2010 would I believe it but they have even said things that we wanted to hear and yet… I still sit hear and wait with open wallet for a chance to get my copy of GT5. I liked what Joshua said above about purchasing GT3 to pass the time away until GT5 is released. I have bad news for him….GT3 was pretty easy. I also have bad news for Sony. I bought a Xbox360 and Forza 3 to pass the time away and I think Im definitely going to be able to finish it before GT is available for purchase. Isnt that sad?

    People use the term “We” as if PD cares. The “We” they care about is the mass public. Right now there is no Gran Tourism on the market. There is nobody waiting on the game in their eyes. That is why Sony/PD rarely mentions GT in public appearances.

    If you want the best soup in town, you gotta wait in line. Go across the street but when we open, you’ll be back.

    so, we all bag out someone who post a new topic about a release date, because unless it is from sony direct, not a room off to the back of a conference, and to quote the article, ‘ While we must be wary of this somewhat anonymous source of information ‘, how do we close this?

    so is this for Japan? So I guess it is coming out 2011.

    Answer? Very few people care about 3D- 3D is such a gimmick. I used to think it was cool, until I tried it on a PC I had a few years ago. It sucks. Makes everything look smaller and gives most people a headache. Too bag GT5 had too get caught up in the 3D crapstorm.

    Why not during the summer, along with the 3d tv?!?!? I can’t wait any longer. No, release it ASAP and make the 3D shiet DLC. We don’t really care about 3D anyways; when you figure out how to make it DLC, then add it. We’ll pay for it, Sony.

    We’ve waited 5 years. We’ve over-played Prolouge to the point where we can memorize every detail in the game, We’ve beaten GT PSP over a dozen times. Just release the damn game already. >_<

    Yeah, It would have to be October 2010, because of Gran Turismo PSP. (I’m assuming) But I really do hope it comes out IN 2010, because it’s been such a long time I’ve waited for this game. I even went out and bought Gran Turismo 3, so I won’t be bored. Just Please Let it be FINAL.

    With all due respect, who the bloody hell cares about 3D? I figured mid-late 2010 would be a suitable timeframe for GT5’s release. Early 2011 is still a safe possibility to me.

    2011 will be sweet when GT5 is released.
