More Leaked Copies of Gran Turismo 5 Out in the Wild?

November 7th, 2010 by Jordan Greer

As carefully spotted by our highly observant forum users, what appears to be more real, legitimate copies of Gran Turismo 5 are sneaking their way out into the world. The first leaked disc originated from Australia – and they’re now showing up in Europe. Early copies of the German GT5 Collector’s Edition (just the game box, without the extra goodies) were posted to a Czech Republic auction site and quickly snatched up.

UPDATE: A lack of proof from the source of these images has cast their authenticity into doubt.

    Some sad git went to all the trouble of making a fake disc, sad people.

    “Exciting 16 player online races.”

    Yeah, being punted by 12 to 14 people is real exciting.

    • Nov. 8, 3:37am

      true, unless we add a severe penalty system online :)

    • Nov. 8, 3:44am
      Mr Big Balls

      If you’re fast like me then you never get ‘punted’. Speed up, chap ;)

      The only time I’m playing online is with my friends in a race I set up!!! They are all fair drivers, will have nothing to do with the 3 year olds online.

    • Nov. 8, 7:54am

      @ Mr Big Balls
      You seem to be over compensating for something. You’re trying a bit too hard my friend, and the more you look down – well, I guess you still can’t find it can you?

    • Nov. 8, 7:55am

      Severe penalties?

      If you crash, $ony remove ANOTHER feature from your PS3!

  5. Nov. 8, 3:06am

    I’m inclined to agree it’s a bit of a fake – if you really had the game, you’d provide a few screenshots that prove beyond any doubt that you have it.

    The text on the back of the case reads like it is from a 5 year old too.

  6. Nov. 8, 2:43am

    Looks fake.
    – All existing screenshots (would expect at least one new)
    – Description under the screens looks rather strange.

  7. Nov. 8, 12:49am

    Seems it is legit.

    Well in that case, POLYPHONY DIGITAL, you guys should…

    FIRE THE TRANSLATOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    • Nov. 8, 1:10am

      I dare indulge because I do not understand. Please explain, or provide evidence.

  8. Nov. 8, 12:08am

    wow… i hope its relised soon!

    • Nov. 8, 12:29am

      Do you mean released?

  9. Nov. 7, 11:19pm

    makes no sense. if someone really had the game I’m sure there would be some footage and photos that had never been seen, or even just new info but there has been nothing

  10. Nov. 7, 10:43pm

    Calm down everyone the discs are being stamped ‘as we speak’.

    • Nov. 8, 1:21am

      Why did you ‘quote’ as we speak?

    • Nov. 8, 2:29am

      Because he was quoting Kaz Yamauchi.

  11. Nov. 7, 10:43pm

    Im sure the game will come near 3/12 or 14/12 … the game finished :) .. but why they don’t sell the copies that they already finished copy them ?… what they are afraid of ? … T_T

    • Nov. 7, 10:56pm

      Announce another delay…lol…

      Hopefully not though…

  12. Nov. 7, 10:31pm

    Man, rarely in my life have I truly felt like Veruca Salt, waiting on GT5 is most definitely one of those moments! Google her, if you don’t get it!

    If Sony is looking to release on 11/30 in the US, I’d think they’d announce some time this week. Anyway, time will tell, but this wait blows. Peace, and have a good week ya’llz!!

  13. Nov. 7, 10:14pm

    *sign*, here we go yet again…low resolution and unclear pictures. Wait, where is the “barcode” on the cover? Oh, it’s “hiding” conveniently under the disc.

    So what’s with the barcode – it’s “Universal Product ID”. You can’t really make it up without knowing the rules, or risking being discovered by using other products’ barcode or making up a fake one.

    Well, it’s fake to me.

    PS: I like Jordan being careful this time ;)

    • Nov. 7, 10:21pm

      I didn’t notice the missing barcode until now.Nice observation.

    • Nov. 7, 10:40pm

      You might think this one looks so real, but… :)

    • Nov. 8, 2:24am

      It’s the collector’s edition…

      The Disc comes in a box, which comes in a another box which has the barcode…

    • Nov. 8, 3:10am


      Look at the second picture again. Or go to check your PS3 game covers.

      Don’t defend those people who think their smarter than others. ;)

    • Nov. 8, 11:17am

      oops, my bad

  14. Nov. 7, 9:45pm

    Oh man thats enough…we are not fans…we are adicts…nobody have a copy of nothing…it is impossible right now…we haven´t got any news about Sony or Gran Turismo web site and thats all…everybody wants this game now but until the stores will have a copy we can never see or play it.
    Jordan close this post!…(if you want :P)

    • Nov. 7, 9:49pm

      rofl, love that “(if you want :P)” at the end….

  15. Nov. 7, 9:38pm

    Please someone at PD or Sony put up images of the real disc and release late on your respective websites so we can lay all this fake disc crap to rest!

    • Nov. 7, 9:46pm

      That would be nice.

  16. Nov. 7, 9:36pm

    so was this the reason GTP went down earlier? Massive traffic due to fake?

  17. Nov. 7, 9:34pm

    How about this:
    Untill release day, anyone posting that they have leaked copies without: 1. Providing proof to GTP staff prior to posting, and 2.; Posting without exspress approval of said staff, gets immediately banned. I need more reading material on the banned list anyway. Funny stuff.

    • Nov. 7, 9:37pm

      + Infinity.

    • Nov. 7, 9:38pm


    • Nov. 7, 9:39pm

      Did you say that there was a banned list somewhere on the site?

    • Nov. 7, 10:09pm

      So let me get this straight. CZ decides to have a little troll fun with false hopes and promises of GT5 info, and the resulting hysteria caused the temporary crash of GTP? ****!

    • Nov. 7, 10:21pm

      Called it. Spot on.

  18. Nov. 7, 9:18pm

    oh QUIT COMPLAINING!. i got the leaked copy from someone
    and it work -_-

      Poor Mods

      You do realize the Mods can tell your just posting to yourself right?

    • Nov. 7, 9:23pm

      You sir are full of crap.

    • Nov. 7, 9:24pm

      Cool to know you have it.
      Now, just show us some pictures.
      Or some info that have never came up since now.

    • Nov. 7, 9:26pm

      go play it then and stop waisting our time

    • Nov. 8, 11:43am

      If you have a copy, that’s great news!!! If I had a leaked copy, I personally wouldn’t say anything (probably too busy playing it). But seriously, if you’ve got it, ask around to see if someone can help you post up vids and/or pics. It’s not like anyone here can prove you DON’T have it anyway.

      to “sure”:
      Man… how did he came up with the “Clubman Stage Route 5” ??
      It isn´t listed anywhere we know.


    • Nov. 7, 9:23pm

      dunno, must be that super seceret track I found on my leaked GT78 Ultra Super Seceret Prototype Edition….lol

  28. Nov. 7, 8:26pm

    Lol! This is hilarious, it’s probably just an advertisement copy. Who knows, that “Exciting 16 player online races” on the front of the cover could just be a sticker or something.

  29. Nov. 7, 8:25pm
    Andrew R.

    Imagine how stupid we’ll all feel if the retail case actually says “cars smoke and spark.” I can hear the response from posters already… “Oh well it actually doesn’t seem like bad grammar come to think of it. I knew Polyphony would deliver.”

    It’s coming 11/9/2010! The release date, that is.

  30. Nov. 7, 8:06pm

    The 16 players online just does not look rite. I couldn’t see them ruining the front cover with it. And honestly who read the back cover without “cars smoke and spark” standing out. At first i thought it was legit for sure casue it was the same as the other disk but now i think about it, If ya made one who’s to say ya can’t make another.

  31. Nov. 7, 7:45pm

    It must be a marketing shunt to really get our juices going *(as if that is needed!!)

  32. Nov. 7, 7:30pm

    I from germany and the disk is fake. I got the leaked copy and its fake. I hope the real gt5 copy comes :(

  33. Nov. 7, 7:14pm

    I want to believe these pictures are legit but honestly I don’t think I can. I can’t help but feel Sony would have said something by now if they were truly legit copies that were somehow leaked to the public….

  34. Nov. 7, 7:08pm

    DEC 6 release date :) in north america just like i said

    • Nov. 7, 7:10pm

      Really?? it is confirmed? O_o

    • Nov. 7, 7:15pm


    • Nov. 7, 7:50pm

      The Madrid Launch Party is the week before Tuesday, November 30th. That is the most likely date for GT5 in North America. It is also possible that GT5 is released the same week as the Madrid Launch Party, but the idea originally was that the launch party was the week before GT5’s release.

    • Nov. 7, 8:26pm

      Dec. 6th is a Monday.

      Games aren’t released on Mondays here in the U.S.

  35. Nov. 7, 7:01pm

    And i found some differences with the Australian copy…in this one it says Made in Austria and the other manufactured in Australia …both are from SCEE (Sony Europe).
    Other difference is form the mature simbol: in Australia the rating for this is a green G and for Europe is a grey USK polygon.
    And i found one more: Australian has a “BCES-00569/ANZ” (the code for the game) and this one “BCES-00569” without the “ANZ”.
    And only one more with others new games witch has this type of cover…at the bottom when it says all about trademarks:”All rights reserved” always is next from “Made in Austria” and now is at the bottom.

    • Nov. 7, 7:18pm

      and more more thing…i can´t see well the entire picture but 14 On-line players??? they said 16…but never mind…

    • Nov. 7, 7:30pm

      As already suggested the BCES-00569 code is considered fake and belongs to Dungeon Seige. I am certain this is just a hoax and someone is sitting back having a good laugh.

    • Nov. 7, 8:11pm

      Isn’t dungeon siege a PS game? It’s PSPEUOC-ULES-00569 not BCES-00569

  36. Nov. 7, 6:55pm

    I’m not convinced it’s real… IT says size taken on hard drive is only 2056MB, which seems very few considering kaz said it could go up to 10 Gb !
    Plus the screenshots on the back are screens we have already seen so far….

    But I could be wrong

    • Nov. 7, 7:09pm

      Kaz said that we have 2 options for instalation too…and it says 2564 Mg Minimum…

    • Nov. 7, 7:20pm

      oh indeed foxiol, my bad ;)

  37. Nov. 7, 6:48pm

    It looks real…and the car is grey because it is the Collectors edition…the normal GT5 comes with the red one SLS. Maybe…let´s wait a few more days or a couple of weeks.

    • Nov. 7, 6:50pm

      I say wait a few more years for the game to get properly released.

      In all honesty I’m finding it to believe its real.

    • Nov. 7, 7:01pm

      It’s fake. Just look at the capitalization and punctuation errors on the back of the cover. Not to mention that it sounds like it was written by a 9-year-old. Very unprofessional looking. I would find it hard to believe that Polyphony would put out a game they’ve worked on for that long with a cover and disc that look like that.

    • Nov. 7, 7:04pm

      “Just cause” Only one question for you (and i don´t know if it is real or not)…have you ever look at the back of the all games that you have for more that just 1 or 2 seconds reading some bul$%$???…and if you take some time all games says 4 things about it and nothing more…we want to play the game put in our consoles and thats all folks!!

  38. Nov. 7, 6:44pm

    i want it…..

    • Nov. 7, 6:48pm

      Who doesn’t?

  39. Nov. 7, 6:41pm

    So why is everyone ignoring the fact that the disc is the same as the other “leaked” copy of GT5 from Australia? Don’t you think that’s too much of a coincidence?

    Looks real to me.

  40. Nov. 7, 6:39pm


    • Nov. 7, 6:49pm

      yea thats what Iam saying

      You seriously think they would give us that awful back cover?

  42. Nov. 7, 6:34pm

    Ought to edit that red text to 500point Jordan. Given how this has whole episode has transpired it would probably be the only noteworthy sentence of the whole article.

    Within 6 weeks this will all be over thank god; then a whole new breed of chaos will begin as far as site traffic is concerned.

  43. Nov. 7, 5:07pm

    The disk looks so stupid. It’s almost like the machine missed the hole and the hub cap is off center.

  44. Nov. 7, 5:02pm

    LMBO, somebody posted “screens” of “GT5 trophies” on the facebook page. I guess it’s supposed to be proof.
    Apparently GT5 gives out Red Dead Redemption tropies…

    • Nov. 7, 6:35pm

      They arn’t supposed to be screens of the trophies, isn’t it meant to be proof that someone is playing on the actual game? (Hence the fact it says Gran Turismo 5)?

    • Nov. 7, 6:38pm

      I posted those it’s not supposed to be proof.I saw it in the general discussion and thought i might post them there as well.Take from it what you will.

    • Nov. 7, 6:41pm

      Yes Inggrish,it is supposed to be proof that someone is/was playing GT5.

    • Nov. 7, 6:52pm

      In case it wasn’t obvious (someone seriously asked why GT5 had a kill 500 people achievement), those achievements shown in that screenshot are from Red Dead Redemption.

    • Nov. 7, 7:02pm

      Good grief! Ive seen bad photoshop images but that is more like ms paint, The Gran Turismo 5 is just placed added like the silly white squares

    • Nov. 7, 7:10pm

      The trophies shown on your user card are only the ones you’ve most recently achieved. They don’t pertain to what you’re playing at that moment. For all we know, some other douchebag decided to play RDR after this guy got GT5.

      Not that I’m saying it’s real. ‘Cause I still think it’s fake.

    • Nov. 7, 9:34pm

      There was a trophy in gold which looked like it was part of a key. It could be referring to a car key trophy in gran turismo.. just saying.

    • Nov. 7, 11:54pm

      @idlestation — It isn’t a key, it’s a ping pong paddle and ball.

  45. Nov. 7, 4:58pm

    It’s fake. The descriptions on the back sound incredibly childish and poorly structured; There’s no way a dev like PD, who adhere to the highest standards of perfection, would put that kind of drivel on the back of their box like that.

    • Nov. 7, 6:26pm

      Yea I know what you mean..

      Part of me wants to believe its real, but the quality of the cover doesn’t match that of the game inside it.. unless they were really rushed for time?

  46. Nov. 7, 4:49pm

    It’s fake.

  47. Nov. 7, 4:44pm

    Where’s the ‘DUALSHOCK 3 Vibration function’ icon on the back of the case? It really smells like a fake.
    Unprofessional description, ugly screenshots, missing icons..

  48. Nov. 7, 4:42pm

    Well, this is just great. We’re all blowing our wads early over whats looking more and more like an Ashton Kutcher episode of PUNK’d. I wont believe these discs until I see new game footage and full track reveal intel, etc.

  49. Nov. 7, 4:35pm

    *does happy dance*

  50. Nov. 7, 4:34pm

    i want it all, i want it all, and i want it now !!!!!
    (thanks to freddy mercury and Queen for that circumstance’s sentence !!!!)

  51. Nov. 7, 4:33pm

    “Cars smoke and sparks” says the text on the back of the cover.
    This dont sound like some japanese-english google translate sentence.

    I smell a fake…

    • Nov. 7, 4:38pm

      Yeah, my face IS slowly starting to fade from big grin to face plain. Really bad grammar, no capitalization at the beginning of sentences. If someone is this talented to make a fake look good, why cant they spell right? Seems very fishy I’ll admit. Conspiracy by Europe to PUNK the US fans? lol

    • Nov. 7, 4:41pm

      I think you need some new eyes.

      It says “Cars smoke and spark”. There’s no s connected to spark..

    Challenge has a lower case ‘C’ even though it’s at the start of a sentence.

    biggest mess up ever this game.

    The BCES-code on the disk is from another game.

    Yeah Sony… Look at this! You don´t tell us the date, we create it ourselves.

    • Nov. 7, 4:30pm

      Noooooo! Not again!!! Really? Would you please strongly ask why is it this time? Maybe from you we can hear something.
      Yeah! Give Sony some inspiration! Show ´em how to do it!

      Ummm, a bit red in the face, but apparently my software needs updating due to being recently violated by unautorized 3rd parties…

  56. Nov. 7, 4:25pm

    well thats because SCEI published or developed games in UK gets the worse of everything box quality cheap manual is thin most of them r black and white and the box picture is lame compare it to US sony games which r better in design and quality.

  59. Nov. 7, 4:22pm

    Surprised they went with the ’20 locations’ rubbish again. People want to know HOW MANY UNIQUE TRACKS?

      Nay. GT5 is going to have 70+ tracks in 20 locations (countries) :D

    • Nov. 7, 4:26pm

      You havn’t been following news here have you?

    • Nov. 7, 4:27pm


    • Nov. 8, 10:05am

      Didn’t they recently say that there will be over 100 tracks? Perhaps I missed something…

    not impressed with the back of the case…too many speech about multiplayer…old and not the best car pictures…looks poor,hope it is fake.

  62. Nov. 7, 4:12pm

    Read it again

    the box is FAKE and childish

    • Nov. 7, 4:15pm

      WTF is up with “cars smoke and spark”? Not exactly a major feature, and not one I would expect sony/pd to focus on….

      cars smoke and spark… Speak english WTF

    • Nov. 7, 4:32pm

      Tell it to the people who made the box shown. It’s their words, not mine….

      What do they smoke, weed?

  63. Nov. 7, 4:10pm

    The day will come when production issues such as this will no longer exist. That will be because all content will be downloaded, or just played in the cloud, no need to create and distribute discs.

    And while I wouldn’t mind the game out soon, a part of me wants another delay just so I can laugh at some of the comments here when it is announced ;-)

    • Nov. 8, 1:55am

      I agree. The next gen. consoles will have to focus more on how they get to the ‘cloud’ . I can’t wait!

  64. Nov. 7, 4:06pm

    I absolutely dislike that blue PSN logo saying “Exciting 16 player online races.” That stupid logo should’ve been left out…

  65. Nov. 7, 4:00pm

    People on Twitter are saying that “minimal” stck has arrived at UK retailers, WTF is going on?

    • Nov. 7, 4:04pm
      Magic delayton

      F knows…

    • Nov. 7, 4:08pm

      Sure they don’t mean being delivered to the stores, but not put out on the shelves?

    • Nov. 7, 4:30pm

      HOLY S***!! Fellas, I think it may be a Black ERRRRRR Glorious Friday after all Nov 26th! If some retailers are getting copies, Sony is trying HARD to make it for Black Friday. Hey, guys with reserve copies get first service! Screw all those moms who waited till then to go buy it. RESERVATION Beotches! lol.

      And Im off that day too! No fighting the crowds, I’ll just go into game stop, get my copy, and run for my truck, peeling out of the parking lot with poor sports hanging onto my truck as I leave. Maybe even gunfire, lol. Its going to be crazy! I will not be surprised one bit if someone in the world gets shot and killed over a GT5 dispute on release day, ESPECIALLY if that day falls on Black Friday in the US. Can you imagine dying with the game in your hands before you get it into your PS3. THAT would suck beyond words.

    • Nov. 7, 4:43pm

      I want to retract previous over giddy statement. I think we’re getting Punk’d.

  66. Nov. 7, 3:58pm

    I can’t believe people are still so skeptical to the authenticity of the disks and cases.

  67. Nov. 7, 3:57pm

    I bet some Forza fanboy is taking the piss………

    • Nov. 7, 4:02pm
      Magic delayton

      Me too, there is a video of a guy unboxing GT5 on youtube, I wouldn’t be surprised if it all wasn’t a hoax.. why aren’t Sony speaking up? Honestly I have never felt so anxious over a Game.. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!

  68. Nov. 7, 3:57pm

    Is it only me , or has the forum been down for everybody ?

    • Nov. 7, 3:58pm

      Nope, it seems to be happening for most people.

    • Nov. 7, 4:13pm

      It must be getting hammered with hits, I keep getting;
      “Database error.
      The database has encountered a problem.”
      Been like this for at least an hour, can’t progress beyond forum index.

  69. Nov. 7, 3:56pm

    Forum is out…

    @James ,
    yes , someone said that he will post a vid. But we won’t see it because the forum has been fubar.

  70. Nov. 7, 3:51pm

    GTplanet is about to explode!

    • Nov. 7, 3:54pm

      Why?Some guy on the Facebook feed said that someone was uploading videos as we speak.Is there any truth to this?

  71. Nov. 7, 3:44pm

    anybody else getting database errors when trying to go onto the forums? great job keeping us all updated jordan!!

    • Nov. 7, 3:47pm

      Yes it has happened to me several times.Something like error connecting to database but then i refresh and it’s all good.

    • Nov. 7, 3:48pm

      Yeah same here, getting database errors.

    • Nov. 7, 3:55pm

      me four!!

  72. Nov. 7, 3:43pm

    Great. I was going to study right now.
    Then I read this… Too excited!

  73. Nov. 7, 3:41pm

    We’ll most likely find out the release date tomorrow. I hope its sooner then what we think.

  74. Nov. 7, 3:41pm

    Oh god, I am pissing for some informations here. Come on Sony, out with it already.

  75. Nov. 7, 3:35pm

    a quick message to

  76. Nov. 7, 3:35pm

    German copy ? The text on the back of the box is english.

    • Nov. 7, 3:40pm

      Yeah, it’s odd. The German connection comes from the USK rating on the disc.

    • Nov. 7, 3:47pm

      Makes sense :)
      I hope we still get a release date, instead of Amazon just shipping it to me as a surprise. I wanted to use the rest of my vacation days for GT5, still have 9 days left and no need for them beside GT5.

    • Nov. 7, 3:48pm

      The German rating is USK, but it seems to be a promo-edition I think.

      I got several promo games here, and they often have only the USK logo or Aussie-logo on the disc. I even have a (promo) game with only the Aussie logo on disc and box, while I live in the Netherlands where we use PEGI..

      My MMA-promo for PS3 has both Aussie 15 and German USK18 logo on it. But no PEGI..

      Also, my retail GT5 Prologue has a USK-logo on the disc, while the box has PEGI. I think everywhere in Europe this is the case… All have only the German logo on the disc, while the box has the country-specific logo..

    • Nov. 7, 3:49pm

      It’s on the disc because the whole EU gets the same discs.
      If you have any EU games check the disc you’ll find the German rating logo on a few of them.

      Sometimes you can even find the German- and the Australian rating logo on the same disc.

    • Nov. 7, 3:50pm

      We covered this in the forum. Loads of games that are PEGI rated have USk on the disc and no PEGI rating.

      It’s very common.

    • Nov. 8, 4:08am
      Joe J

      The whole EU does not get the same discs. The UK has a different and independent rating system.

  77. Nov. 7, 3:34pm

    Can’t believe we are so close now…
    Just a little longer and we can finally play after nearly 6 years of waiting. Just need find something to do for the next 3 weeks… it’s gonna be hard, because only thing i can think of is GT5. -.-“

  78. Nov. 7, 3:33pm

    We shoud see a track list soon.

    • Nov. 7, 3:35pm

      God I hope so! Having the track list at the very least would make me so happy.

    • Nov. 7, 9:24pm

      A guess as good as your spelling!

  79. Nov. 7, 3:30pm

    I wonder how big the manual is and how comprehensive it is. I hope someone also scans that and throws it up on the internet. I would read that thing over and over again.

  80. Nov. 7, 3:29pm

    I call fake ;) The karting pic seems to be taken from a screen and the language used on the cover seems way too unprofessional…

    • Nov. 7, 3:36pm

      I’ve gotta be honest.

      The karting picture is what I wondered about, and imo it does look like it’s an off-screen shot rather than direct feed, and I conveniently don’t remember seeing any direct feed footage of karts but only moderate quality cam stuff.

    • Nov. 7, 3:39pm

      but look at the other two pictures, surely it doesn’t look fake there..
      We’ll blame the camera for now :)

    • Nov. 7, 3:39pm

      If you look at the official karting screenshots that was released, you will find that most of them have an overexposed tinge to it.

    • Nov. 7, 3:41pm

      Still not 100% convinced myself. Im not sure about the language “driver face tracking, course maker and karting” – its like someone got a list of the games most unrelated features and tried to make a sentence out of it.

      Only time will tell is guess.

    • Nov. 7, 7:50pm

      I concur!
      The last pic is too clean for myself.
      I guess someone already mentioned the text on the case spine of this (supposedly) GT5? It appears to say Collecto(r’s Edition?) of the game?

  81. Nov. 7, 3:29pm

    So what happened to all those people that were so sure the previous disc was a fake because the wheel was off-centre? Scurried back into the woodwork, I suppose.

  82. Nov. 7, 3:27pm

    my PS3 is drooling

  83. Nov. 7, 3:27pm

    this is awesome. im happy someone got this game i was wondering this today what would happen if workers on that ship took a couple copies and sold them..

  84. Nov. 7, 3:26pm

    Nice!!! We’ll have it in a month, the later. (sorry if the sentence is not correct but you understand me)

  85. Nov. 7, 3:26pm

    Whoever has that disc, damn they’d better play it on their PS3 ..
    like RIGHT NOW !!!!!!!!!

  86. Nov. 7, 3:26pm

    This is real exciting stuff. I got a need for spee- oh wait…

  87. Nov. 7, 3:24pm



  88. Nov. 7, 3:23pm

    Hopefully we can get a release date this week or next week.

  89. Nov. 7, 3:23pm

    :D There you go Jordan. But don´t worry.. a lot of people outside EU still dont know it.

  90. Nov. 7, 3:22pm

    I’m still waiting for confirmation that the G27 clutch will work for GT5… hopefully that will be answered sooner as opposed to later.

    • Nov. 7, 3:44pm

      It does on GT5P. Why wouldn’t it on GT5. You need to hold down triangle at any given moment during a drive.

    • Nov. 7, 4:21pm

      It doesn’t work in GT5P’s ‘arcade mode’ (only in ‘time trial’ and ‘event races’). Now, for me, I’ll be using GT5’s career mode mainly, but the online activities are via the arcade settings (so it’s questionably as to whether the clutch will work online and in the offline arcade mode). When I show the game to people who will come over my house, they will only be accessing the arcade mode. And most of the time, they will want to use the clutch.

    • Nov. 7, 10:26pm

      Actually, it works in every mode. Like mentioned, just press triangle after you gain control of the car.

    • Nov. 8, 1:17am

      Yup clutch works in every mode just press triangel at start of the race.

  91. Nov. 7, 3:22pm

    i think i need a change of pants right about NOW!

    • Nov. 7, 7:33pm

      To much info bro.

  92. Nov. 7, 3:17pm

    Ooh man, these people who get the game early need to start giving some information! Track lists and premium cars, RIGHT NOW! I badly want that information. D: That will tie me over until I get my own copy.

  93. Nov. 7, 3:16pm

    I want It like Meow!

    • Nov. 7, 4:14pm

      Did you say “Meow”??? lol

    • Nov. 7, 8:29pm

      meow that was a super troopers reference like the one I’m doing right meow

    • Nov. 7, 8:37pm

      Meow too!

    • Nov. 7, 10:36pm

      heh heh, I had to fire up Netflix just to watch that movie now, thanks.

  94. Nov. 7, 3:16pm

    so we should get actual ingame footage of the retail version pretty soon, right?

  95. Nov. 7, 3:16pm

    Me too!!!

  96. Nov. 7, 3:15pm

    I can’t believe we’re this close! I’m trying (and failing) not to be ridiculously excited.

  97. Nov. 7, 3:15pm

    Sony better hurry up and announce a solid release date (And it better be soon)
    Or some one is going to ruin their party

    • Nov. 7, 3:16pm

      I have my team ready to assault Sony’s HQ at any given moment… lol.

    • Nov. 7, 3:19pm

      Agreed. They need to get out in front of this. Staying silent only allows others to control the conversation!

    • Nov. 7, 4:47pm
      Gamer GT5

      I’m sure they’re going to give the release date after black ops to give treyarch a little space of their release party. Then they’ll give us a release date soon i’m sure.

  98. Nov. 7, 3:15pm


  99. Nov. 7, 3:14pm

    I WANT IT NOW!!!!! D:

  100. Nov. 7, 3:13pm

    Lucky sob.

    • Nov. 7, 3:31pm

      hope he releases the car and track list.

    • Nov. 7, 3:55pm

      Noo!!! I want at least some surprises!!! Give us screenshots of on-track action, but not menus and stuff!!! I’d be upset!!! DX

    • Nov. 7, 4:02pm


    • Nov. 7, 4:11pm

      my favorite GT5 picture XD

    • Nov. 7, 4:33pm

      Hopefully review copies are in the hands of major gaming news site and the embargo for releasing reviews is bumped up to prevent us from getting fed information through unofficial sources.

      I’d prefer professional commentary, screen shots, video reviews, etc… over camera phone garbage.

      That said… i will take any information i can get.
      i really really really really want to official car and track list.

    • Nov. 7, 4:45pm
      Gamer GT5

      Why do you guys want the whole car and track list? Don’t y’all want to be suprized especially after 6 years of waiting. I rather be shocked!

    • Nov. 7, 4:56pm

      surprised… game reviews with this information will be released prior to the disc being in our hands. Those reviews will spill all the elusive details…

      if we are going to get this information pre-release, why not sooner rather than later?

    • Nov. 7, 6:32pm

      @Gamer GT5 — Part of being registered on a site devoted to all things Gran Turismo is that a large number of us welcome such spoilers. I know I’d sure like to see such a list.

    • Nov. 7, 8:26pm

      it’s just a track & car list. I don’t understand how it ruins the surprise of the game. The game is going to have surprises that you have to experience, those are what’s important. The track & car list would be great info. Plus you don’t have to read them

    • Nov. 7, 11:49pm

      Of course, game-reviews will show most of the details to attract people which haven’t heard of GT to this very day – yes, there are still some!
