Gran Turismo 5’s One Year Anniversary

Gran Turismo 5 138 November 24, 2011 by

Exactly one year ago today – after much speculation, rumor-mongering, winds, and two official delays – Gran Turismo 5 was finally released to the world with a massive launch party in Madrid, Spain.

Six million copies and 365 days later, GT5 has received over 13 free updates (including its most significant, Spec 2.0), two new circuits, and 15 new cars via DLC pack in the PlayStation Store – all this despite a lengthy PlayStation Network outage and a severe earthquake in Polyphony Digital’s native Japan last spring.

Fortunately, the future still appears to be very bright for GT5. With Gran Turismo 6 apparently a ways off and “many batches” of additional content in the works, we could once again be celebrating a very different game come next November.

For now, enjoy the artistic retrospective video above by GTPlanet member jBhIpS (check out his full gallery). To Kazunori Yamauchi and the Polyphony Digital team, congratulations on a great year!
