November 12, 2010 // 9:07 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.

With the techonology we have today... man they could send it out today and still have 5,000,000 copies made by release date.

But i'm assuming that the reason that sony released this info today... is because they probably started to ship to distributors today... I'd imagine there is a super long supply chain involved with releasing a game... this stuff doesnt get done overnight!

Hoping to get a copy to play asap!

Finally its being released after the years of waiting.

I doubt it will be with the 3.42 SDK they must have re built it with the 3.50 SDK to prevent JB users playing the game illegally.
