Gran Turismo 5 Delayed Indefinitely

Polyphony Digital's PS3-exclusive boutique racer was due to ship this March, but Sony says it's been delayed

In a surprise press statement, Sony today revealed its much anticipated uber-racer Gran Turismo 5 for the PlayStation 3 has been delayed with a new release date as yet unsettled. The game had been due in Japan this March, with a US and European release date targeting summer 2010.

'To Be Announced', that's the racer's new status, and while Sony isn't saying why the game's been delayed, they are apologizing for the unanticipated hangup.

If you've followed the game, you know it's been in development forever, that it's cost incredible sums (the game's 'godfather' Kazunori Yamauchi put the figure at $60 million as of last November), that it's supposed to be breathtakingly realistic with 1000 cars and over 20 track locales, and that the skeletal prologue version released over two year ago has itself sold around 3.5 million copies to date.

Sony told game news site CVG that GT5's delay applies to the Japanese market alone. Japan's the only territory where the game had received a firm release date.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
