For those of you out there who still aren’t convinced of Gran Turismo 5’s pending 2009 release date, take a look at the game’s official brochure handed out at last week’s GamesCom convention. Snapped by RiseOfGames, the brochure was quickly translated by forum users – but you don’t have to be fluent in German to figure out what “4. Quartel 2009” means. Via user G.T.Ace:
Developer: Polyphony – Platform: PS3
Genre: Racing – Number of players: T.B.A.
Release: 4th Quarter of 2009
THE ULTIMATE RACING GAME RETURNS
(lots of stupid PR blah blah, really nothing important)
The player can choose between over
1000 cars to race on incredible detailed racetracks and unlock PlayStation Trophies (blah).
The new NASCAR and WRC championships improve the
Gran Turismo experience. Players are challenged to fight their way up the online leaderboards against other racedrivers from all over the
See more articles on Gamescom 2009.
guys this is different than the GRAN TURISMO PROLUGE right?
has everyone already forgotten what Kazunori Yamauchi said in E3, he said it would be out this Holiday season
I hate to break it to everyone, but “Q4” is referring to the 4th quarter of Sony’s 2009 fiscal year, which actually ends in March 2010. In other words, the game will most likely be released in March 2010. So much for a joyous holiday season this year. :(
Glad to know that Need For Speed: Shift isn’t good cuz I was thinking about getting it instead
I’v never played GT before after having nightmares of rubbery car collisions back in the PS2 demo days. And I really hoped that NFS Shift would put me off any news about GT5, but what a diappointment Shift was. So much hype for nothing. Now GT5 is my only chance of a good racing game, I hope it is AMAZING now.
1000 cars!! 980 of which I will probably never drive. That is certainly worth having a carrot dangled in front of me for the past year and a half. Remember GT4? First release date was December of some year and then we endured another 15 months of apologetic delays before we actually got the game. Yes, it is the best racing sim but, I’m so annoyed it’s hard to get excited about this rumored release. I’ll believe it when it is actually in the store!
hope it will be out on 28 november YAY MY BIRTHDAY :D
theres actually 10000 cars in gt5
Spec R THIS IS PS3 EXCLUSIVE!!!!! SONY WONT” LAUNCH GAME ON PC OR 360 BECAUSE THAT WILL KILL PS3!!!
I personally think that this will be a worldwide release, meaning that it will be officially released everywhere at the same time. It’s never been done before with a GT game, but with this much loong awaited hype I think PD will go the extra mile.
How they are releasing GT mobile before GT5 is a good move…ok not for us who have been waiting, but for PD and Sony. Not only does this increase their market (also, introducing the game to young people), but almost every person who will get GT mobile will get GT5.
Why? Ignoring the obvious, the PS3 slim has to be bundled with GT5. Sony would be bonkers if they didn’t. With this, Sony can actually win the “console race” for a while to come. Not to mention the other PS3 exclusives.
To be honest, I really hope that this game will not be released on PC (or xb360, god no). Even though I have a good pc gaming rig that surpasses PS3’s graphics by a long shot, I just don’t want it to happen…
@ Bob, because their idiots
Game probable will be on market in Japan In late October and Europe in December. Bob that is probable North America release date(you say that is US website). Prologue was first launch in Japan then Europe and finally in NA…
There have been many false dates published from websites, from sources “unknown”. Its just a marketing scheme by the sites to drive more traffic into them…thats all.
If it is a Q4 2009 release date why does the EB Games (US) website have the shipping date as 2/2/2010?
The recent re-emergence of GT5 info online has got me into the mood for some prologue action with my G25 steering wheel which I’ve now go the hang of… Can’t wait for this now!!!
Lets hope they sort the sound out for the full game. Ferrari challenge may not be up to GT5 standards in terms of graphics and content, but System 3 certainly nailed, with the exception of the tyre screech, the SFX…nice engine sounds, backfiring and something I’d like to hear in GT5 (particularly in the race cars) is squeeling brakes. Also the sound of gears changing in a racing car isn’t a smooth shift in engine pitch, it’s a violent affair which sounds like the gearbox itself is about to explode!!
@Stef and Robert
I’m sorry guys, but everyone know that Clapton is God
No, God’s name is Hideo Kojima…
… But his son’s name is indeed Kazunori Yamauchi!
The american fiscal year may end in Sept, but the Japanese fiscal year ends in March, fyi john. But, as I thought people would get, it was supposed to be a joke. Unbunch those panties folks.
Those hot cakes sound nice meaning i am definitely buying that bundle pack.
All we all gotta do now is wait till the TGS which is on the same day i go back to uni FFS.
Gran Turismo 5 Q4 release date = A new PS3 owner this Christmas.
This news is so amazing, it is time that I stop being an Wii-only owner and get a PS3. I cannot wait for this amazing game to come out.
Sorry for double posting but,
Zx10rking, I believe they will sell a PS3 slim GT5 bundle. They will sell like hot cakes.
:P I like hot cakes….
For all of those who think it will be released at Q4 2009 only in Japan:
That is a German brochure….If Europe will have it on the shelves this year so will the rest of the world.
Hi guys :D this is ofcause all great news :D I can’t wait XD
For those planning to get this one with a set of pedals and a wheel, then remember, that Logitech is very soon out with their new bigbrother of the G25 model :D, the G27 :D (Don’t ask why it’s G27 instead of G26, I don’t know) But it’s looking great and you can find a good review right here:
So fasten your seat belts!
Thanks for putting my extremely professional translation on the frontpage. lol ;)
Nice to be featured here.
Yeah finally!!!!!!! :D Now I only need a ps3 slim, the new logitech G27 and my precious game :D Gonna be great… :D and a bit expensive :S But that dont matter! :D
A SCEE representative confirmed that the brochure is legitimate!!!
Q4 fiscal or normal calendar?
For anyone who thinks the game will be out in japan before Europe, North America u might be intrested in this, (eu . vgreleases.com/PS3/ ReleaseDate- 25101. aspx), just copy take the spaces out
Even though Kaz says it isn’t the final damage version, it sounds as if the build we saw at Gamescom is up-to-date and as-it-is. It sounds like they will be tweaking the damage system post-release. How else would they get feedback from the players regarding the damage system?
I hope the game is good because in Germany GT5 was shit!! I was really disappointed
@ Mark, why would its say that its out in 2009 at a GERMAN game show if it was going to be out 3 months after that according to u?
wheel shop before body kits
As much as I want this to be real, I think it’s gotta be a hoax. How come only one of these leaflets has been seen? Did 10,000 other people at gamescon miss it? It’s been photoshopped for sure. Still hope we see GT5 this year but hope fading fast. Polyphony digital will want a 2-3 month marketing campaign and Sony want plenty of slims sold first. Feb ’10 looking more likely :(
Yeah but that Q4 is probably for Japan..Europe and North America are following about 3 months later..like GT1, GT2, GT3 and GT4..
So dont get to excited ya’ll..we’re playin’ that sh*t when summer is almost comin’
We’ve known it was going to be 2009 for the last month or two, still at least its confirmed, now a proper release date please
i mean.. 6).
4). Rubber of tires on the street
If, at the TGS – Polyphony Digital mention these 3 things, I will be beyond happy:
1). Weather [Rain & Snow]
2). Night Racing
3). 1000 cars
4). ALL vehicles have cockpit view
5). Beter grapix then gt5p
FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!
Tears of Joy!!!!!
SOMETHING TO LOOK FOWARD TO. My hypeness is back to full throttle!!!!!!
If, at the TGS – Polyphony Digital mention these 3 things, I will be beyond happy:
1). Weather [Rain & Snow]
2). Night Racing
3). ALL vehicles have cockpit view
Finally we have some solid confirmation!!! :D
I’m so hyped now!!! This ought to be the 2nd best day of the year!!
:D And you already know what day will be the best. BEAUTIFUL!!! AMAZING!!
By the way, the car on the picture is the hipermax time attack car, google ct230r and you will find it. At first I thought it is a hint that there will be fully customizable bodywork etc. Heck, that would be nice.
w00t !!! =D
Kaz want to make surprise, so probable we won”t know 50% game info until game come on market. ALL CAR WILL HAVE INTERIORS VIEW”S, BUT ONLY 170 CAR”S WILL HAVE INTERIOR DAMAGE (broken car dashboard, door”s damaged from insight…)
I’m more exited about the amount of cars than the release date it will get released in December as always every full gt game has been released in december
Not to be the bearer of bad news, but if this is Sony fiscal quarter 4 it extends into 2010. Zipper Interactive is shipping MAG on January 27 and it is listed under Quarter 4 2009 by Sony.
when is the G27 coming out… :O
Where did Kazunori said the damage is completed right now? I doubt he can afford such a luxury and show an old build of game just few months before release…
about bloody time!!
“24-27 september” is not Q4.
what liars they said the game is finished and we can release it ANY TIME
damage still not complete, that’s bad
what about my birthday??^^ 5th October =D
I hope it comes out about December so they can have it absolutely perfect instead of rushing to have it on the shelves when they could have it a bit better.
great news. Now let’s hope for big surpricesb at TGS! Like cockpits in all cars and better damage. A 2009 release is great of course, but I don’t think they are done by then. I think there will be more with DLC.
any news about the top gear test track..is it still confirmed?
It’s coming out on my birthday, 2nd November you guys. :) (plz?)
The translation is not correct:
Geplante Veröffentlichung: Q4 2009
“Expected” release date: Q4 2009
So what we can see and logicaly understand atm:
170 is the number of cars that will have damage and interior_damage. These will be racing cars and i think they could do only racing cars because problem with licensing and manufacturers not wanting their stock cars to be damaged, still exist. This is probably the compromise that PD managed to agree with manufacturers..
Now interior view should be in ALL cars and it was not written otherwise anywhere else.
Lets just hope that quality interior will be in all cars, because you could definitely see difference between GT-R and M3 inside graphics.
Wooo Hoooo! It’s goin to be non-stop GT5P til December.
Thanks Jack! Uhu!
It will be a world wide release
I remember the first versions of GT, like GT2, when I couldn’t wait to play GT2 and bought the japanese version before the international version, in english. Q4 of 2009 is the release period for the japanese version, or is GT5 going to be released completely in english? Does anyone know that? And remember, Gran Turismo is not a game, it’s master Yamauchi’s art!
Quote, “I hope that sony didn’t make any pressure on PD and forced them to release an unfinished product. i’m still scared about the stuff about the cars (170, 830..)!
Ha…Haha!! Scared?! LMAO! Scared over a computer game…unbelievable.
As for the “news” here, it’s hardly confirmed yet. There has been no official announcement about any release window yet, let alone a date.
DAMAGE IS COMPLETED POLYPHONY SAID THE DAMAGE IN GAMESCOM WAS UNCOMPLETE AND NOT THE FINAL VERSION, THEY WILL PROBS SHOW FINAL VERSION IN TOKYO GAMES SHOW
you have to read what mouzy has written about damage system and yamauchis comment about it.
Rather 2010 release than rushed 2009 release with unfinished damage system (which it IS now).
http://konsolowisko.pl/index.php?t=news&id=2007 it’s the first video presenting damage of the car – die Subaru ! xD enjoy ^^
Dynamic weather changes?????Cancelled???I hope not…..!!
Yay!Finally!The King is coming back!
I hope that sony didn’t make any pressure on PD and forced them to release an unfinished product. i’m still scared about the stuff about the cars (170, 830..)
just need that all important date now, definitley looks like we’re getting it at TGS
I really hope that the damage feature will improve from what we have seen so far. I don’t like tanks as race cars. Maybe we even see rollovers and much more debris on track.
Also, I’d love to see rubber on track – finally.
If not in GT5, maybe in GT6…
I’m scoped for this game ever since i played GT4!!!!!!!! >:O LAWLZ
Yesssssssss! thats great news
Ooo that’s some tasty information Jordan and Mouzy.
O MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I need a Oxygen bottle…
Hey I’m from Germany, and 4th Qartal 2009 means the last 3 months of the year… so we don’t have the real date. I hope I’m not the 1000th person who says that…
guys good nwes about damage!
In an interview hosted on DailyMotion (in French) Polyphony’s Kaz Yamauchi speaks about Gran Turismo 5 and Gamescom. When asked why there hasn’t been much news about the game, Kaz says that he’s “just thankful that so many people are interested in Gran Turismo 5″ and that they are “are doing everything to make the game come out soon.” Naturally the guys are hard at work making sure GT PSP makes it out for October 1st (and remember there’s still time for a last minute delay) but he did confirm that Gran Turismo 5 “should be out shortly after that date”.
Regarding damage (and the rather inconsistent modeling at Gamescom) Kaz says that the version of the game he brought to the Gamescom “marks the first step of what we are trying to do with the damage” and that gamers “can finally see that much damage appear on the bodywork.” But it’s not the final damage system – “we’re interested to know how far the players want to go,” says Yamauchi-san. “The damage already has repercussions on the steering but beware, it should not affect all vehicles in the game.” This reinforces what we said earlier in the week about the number of cars that can be damaged.
Some people have speculated that Sony were going to do a big GT 5 feature as part of the press conference but it was pulled at the eleventh hour to make way for other surprises. We’ll have to keen an eye on TGS, then.
I thought December and I hope nearly the end of the year because:GT PSP,Uncharted 2 Among Thieves,Tekken 6 are coming in september/october.
This is great news!
I hope they’ll tell at TGS that there will be 1000 different cockpitviews, Weather (rain), Pitstops at races, complete car list and track list..it would be cool if Special Stage Route 5 and Clubman Stage Route 5 are in it…I think its really gangsta drivin’ a black Lamborghini Murcielago @ night :D
Does that mean Poly has actaully nailed the damage models for each car then??? I wonder if they choose to add it then in a future patch. But im glad GT is a good game non the less
quarter 4 = October, November, December
there seems to be a few dates kicking around on the Online sales sites
25/ Sept = cant be that as statement said after the psp..
all of which are goooodd for me :P
Why does EB games US say ships 2/2/10

Q1 = January, February , March
Q2 = April, May, June

Whatch it be fiscal fourth quarter just to piss everyone off.
this is great news! my girlfriend yelled at me from across the house (she loves the GT series and is a frequent reader here).. and told me the news! we are both excited about this!!!! …
I’ll honestly say that they can release the game.. and still have a few bugs.. but I’ll still enjoy it… those bugs can be fixed later with a patch….

So 2009 is 2010 now in japan?
Jut want to remind everyone that it may be Q4 on the Japanese business year which would be January-March 2010.
So gaye….we knew this already. Everything is so fake with this game, fake anticipation. Been waiting so long i dont even care, just wanna play it already.
Yep, Im also excited too.
so, i wonder if i should trad ein my GT5P copy now
Yeah why don’t more people believe two unknown anonymous strangers on the Internet with no concrete proof?
always a december release
Think you need to help if your getting wet over a hint of a release date. :P jokes.
Especially when Zmann and me have told you the exact date.
Woohoo! Can’t believe it. Brings tears to my eyes. =’)
Good…. cos no one seems to have cottoned on to that every time I say it either.
ohhhhh yeah this is why i life to play this game
i just had a orgasm reading this
^^^ I’ve been telling people it’s coming out 12/11 for weeks now.
I came. Buckets.
11th December…. ;)
didnt we…kno dis..ahha
This is great news, but then we have to guess which of the three months that GT5 gets released. The guessing continues!!
Awesome!! I Think It Could Release In November Or December.(Just An Opinion)
Just a comment (blah)(blah)(blah)
Really though this is good news, although I won’t believe a release date until it is in my hands.
I believe tgs is september 24th. This is great news to hear before starting another year of college tomorrow!
That’s is great news.
Eh, does anyone know when TGS is?
just fucking release the game im sick tied listen to crap new just release it has been long enough
I’ve high hopes for this game!!!!! =P
pardon my language but that **** for that, im getting both versions but i really really REALLY cant wait for the BIG BROTHER
there is a God and his name is Kazunori Yamauchi
I STILL WANT MY INTERIOR VIEWS!!!
This is really great news though. Finally, more comfirmations rereaffirming what we know or already questioned, again and again. So there, rere(re)comfirmed!!! Kudos on the find Jordan.
Where does the brochure or RiseOfGames state that its an ‘official’ brochure?
I kind of figured it would be a 4th qtr release so that part of info does me no good lol..What IS relieving is knowing that this dag blasted game is coming out this year..waiting 3 or 4 months is a long time for something that you check up on a daily lol
2009 has been nothing but waiting for details to flow about GT5! Hard to “enjoy” the summer. Really weird year so far.
Release quarter confirmed!!!
still no date.
OMG! I knew it! Now we wait for TGS to find out…is it going to be released next to Forza 3 or Christmas 2009? *tears of joy pouring everywhere* *sob*
ALELUYA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’M AGNOSTIC, BUT I GOTTA SAY, THANKS GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 5 YEARS OF WAITING ARE ALMOST OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THANKS FOR SUCH A GREAT NEW GTP, AND SORRY FOR THE CAPS, IM EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!
