Gran Turismo 5 – The Delay

October 21, 2010 Blog 0

About 3 years ago Gran Turismo 5 Prologue was released on the PS3.  I skipped playing this version as I don’t understand why a developer would charge you for a demo of a game.  Now it’s 3 years later and still we have no Gran Turismo 5. 

As you have probably heard by now GT5 is being delayed, yet again, until “this holiday” season.  As I have stated on our podcast here at AYCG that’s probably not going to stick and we will see this game get pushed into the 1st quarter of 2011.  The delay, while not suprising really, is very disappointing.  Personally, I really used to enjoy the racing genre and would play to death GT4 and Forza on my PS2 and Xbox console.

What does this do though for the holiday line up of the PS3?  Granted Microsoft doesn’t have any really big named console exclusives being release any more this year, but they still have Halo: Reach to sell as the Christmas season starts to roll in.  This year I can see a holiday season dominated by Xbox 360 sales with the Halo game available as well as all of the games that the PS3 is getting this season.  Here’s hoping this come out this holiday season and it’s actually worth the wait.

That is all.
