I’ll believe it when I see it

It’s Official: Gran Turismo 5 Is Coming November 2, 2010! – PlayStation Blog

I’ll believe it when I see it. Back in January, Polyphony announced the delay of Gran Turismo to a later date. This was shortly after a 3D version hit the demo booths at CES. I blogged about the delay stating that 3D gaming must be the cause of the change of releas date. Apparently that is partially true.

I can’t believe they actually pushed the release date of a major franchise by nine months just to put 3D into it even though 98% of the people buying the game will not have necessary hardware to play it in 3D. Aside from 3D, they also added the famous BBC Top Gear test track among other things.

Sony will also be releasing a Collector’s Edition of the game which comes with a 300 page car guide, die-cast model of the 2009 Nissan GT-R, Gran Turismo key chain, voucher of in-game upgrades, certificate of authenticity and special collector’s packaging.

Will the delay be worth it? I think so. Will they earn the $60 Million they spent on developing the game? Over time probably. Have I preordered? Yes. Do I believe it will come out in November? I’ll believe it when I see it.

Gran Turismo 5 DELAYED

Gran Turismo 5 Delayed, New Release Date: TBA – gran turismo 5 – Kotaku

January hasn’t been good to gamers so far. First there was the Dragon Age expansion pack pulled at the last minute and now Gran Turismo 5 will not be released in March in Japan and has returned to the ominous TBA release date.

i know that Kazunori Yamauchi is a perfectionist but that’s what updates are for. If Polyphony keeps this up they might find themselves as the next Duke Nukem. They’ve already spent $60 million dollars already making this a very very expensive game already. It’s almost just as expensive as a major Hollywood picture. Just because GT5 was demoed in CES last week in full 3D glory doesn’t mean we’re looking forward to play it in 3D in March since 99.8% of the people buying it don’t have the equipment just yet.

I’m almost at a point where why even bother stating release dates at all. At this point I wont believe anyone’s release date until they’ve actually reached the gold master. Because this is getting ridiculous.
