Default Gran Turismo 5 out 11/24/10 Finally!. GT 6 in development.

Anyone patiently waiting for this? I don't even have a PS3, but I am literally waiting for this game to come out to buy one. I'm gonna start a PS3 account and drop $ in there whenever possible starting in January.

Brand new PS3
Gran Turismo 5
Game wheel w/ pedals [clutch, too]

I'm probably gonna dissappear for about 6 months after I get this, too.

1000 cars, 70 circuits. I wasn't as excited to hear about Lamborghini finally getting licensed, but I was for Tesla. Bugatti ain't bad, either. I don't care much for the Veyron, but they've made some insane super-cars in the past that are often overlooked.

And plus, this one will have an extensive damage engine with the possibility to overturn cars.

Honestly, It's not even a game, this sh*t is serious. It's a simulator. No button mashing, no cheap strategy, this takes will and concentration.

I'm f*cking excited. March 2010 baby!

Gran Turismo 5 sounds like it's going to be amazing. I'm not into racing games, but I'm willing to rent this when it comes out to give it a chance.

I feel the same way. I have a buddy at work who's obsessive about it though too.

Yeah, I feel you. I've been into cars my whole life, but when I was younger, it was just muscle cars and straight line power. My tastes have matured to Exotics and F1. Style and class, beautiful Italian design and the unique whine of F1 exhaust. It completes me.

I never played GT before, but once I heard about it, around the same time I became obsessed with vintage Ferrari's, I popped an immediate boner.

And plus, God Of War III is coming out in March 2010, as well. And that might be my favorite game series of all time behind Twisted Metal and Tekken.

Not excited at all, never was into games like these in the first place, but I did enjoy Gran Turismo 3. Played Prologue and it was terrible, I'm sure the full game will be a lot better but I don't see how people buy a console solely for the release of one game.

I have been patiently waiting for this game for years. This game is the original reason I bought a PS3 instead of an Xbox360 way back when. (well also Final Fantasy XIII but now that is going to be multiplatform)

I think I'm still burnt out from the first Gran Turismo.

I put like 300 hours into that damn game.

I think you are in for a let down. I am a hardcore GT fan, and Forza fan.

I bought GT5 Prologue the day it came out... and I've sat back and watch update after update as they water down the difficulty each time.... suddenly it feels like I'm racing in Need For Speed.

I expect the same thing once the final version drops. Kids will cry and complain it's too hard, and they will keep f*cking with the physics until it pleases them.

Bbbbut It's not a game for kids? Don't people know the difference between a game and a simulator?

Apparently not.

mediocre driver sales >>>>>>> advanced driver sales

All manufacturers care about is sales. They will mostly try and stick to the formula that made them famous which was a very realistic racing game, but the end task is pleasing consumers, and driving more sales.

What I dislike is that 6 years ago when there was only the PS2, etc... there was no such thing as "online updates". You buy the game and play it how it shipped.
