November 12, 2010 // 8:07 am - Today Sony Public Relations Manager Alex Armour has officially confirmed that Gran Turismo 5 for PS3 will be released on November 24, 2010 and posted a new video trailer!

To quote: The date is locked in: Gran Turismo 5 will go on sale throughout North America (and PAL markets) on Wednesday, November 24th.

That means you'll be experiencing over 1,000 cars, including karts and select NASCAR cars, scores of tracks, the all-new Course Maker, a dynamic weather system, a robust online community, and everything else Gran Turismo 5 has to offer in less than two weeks.

Along with confirming the November 24th date, Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital Inc. had this to say:

Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious project, with challenges and complexities which have made it our version of the Apollo Space Program!

When we created the original Gran Turismo back in 1997, we wanted to set a completely new precedent for the racing genre. With the technological leap onto PlayStation 3, our objective with Gran Turismo 5 was to create another great revolution which would not only satisfy our own high expectations, but would meet or even exceed the anticipation of the fans.

Satisfying the loyal Gran Turismo followers is at the heart of all of our efforts, which is why it was such a difficult decision to delay the release of the game, and one which we did not take lightly. I can only apologize to everyone for making you wait so long, and I hope that when you try out the wealth of driving experiences available in Gran Turismo 5, you will not be disappointed.

Don't forget to pre-order Gran Turismo 5 if you haven't already to ensure your copy day one and receive a voucher for one of five free downloadable cars with a custom Stealth Model skin.

We'll have much more on Gran Turismo between now and launch, so please stay tuned to the PlayStation Blog and the official Gran Turismo site.

This game took long enough to come out... Wasn't it supposed to come out 1 and a half or 2 and a half years ago? Still, game looks great and can't wait to buy it!

I don't think that would happen either... but looking at it from a business standpoint... that is really there only choice.....

But the statement hundreds out there that still want PSN (maybe more like millions)... I'm sure ratio is like 1000:1 or 10000:1 / Non-Jailbreak : Jailbreak users but that is alot of people... by the looks at some of these torrent sites since JB'ing became availible some popular games have been d/l'ed tens of thousands of times... just look at MOH.

50,000 x $20 (typical license right to a new game) = $1 million * 300 or so titles that are availible on the internet since JB started

= $300 million inside of 3 months... that's a lot of bread!

Imo, i really don't think sony will be releasing a ps4 just for the sake of fighting the jbkers... sony still earns a huge profit for each and every title that is even produced for the ps3.. The rights have to be bought by companies to release the game for the ps3 platform.. And moreover the thing is that there still are hundreds out there who dont wanna sacrifice psn so still buy games... Not to mention many others who arent able to play games thru the jb and end up buying those for the sake of playing...
