is locked in: Gran Turismo 5 will go on sale throughout North America 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.
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," he concluded.

downloadable cars with a custom Stealth Model skin.
