Last month we reported
that Gran Turismo 5 for PS3 was delayed but would arrive before Christmas, and today Hrabi
at http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?p=4100709#post4100709 appears to have confirmed that sharing some pictures of what appears to be a leaked EUR GT5 PlayStation 3 game, box art and GT5 PS3 Trophies
According to http://www.nicagamerz.com/v6/news/477/gran-turismo-5-complete-box-art/, this copy is made in Austria where it was apparently given to reviewers and leaked, followed by a picture of what may be the first person in the world playing Gran Turismo 5 shown below.
Additionally, http://everythingplaystation.com/news/someone-has-gt5-claims-to-be-uploading-videos-as-we-speak reports that CZ
of http://www.gtplanet.net/forum/showthread.php?t=95004&page=2347 is working on a video of the game (now posted below with a leaked GT5 intro by rybakdany
) in action along with a track name list for fans.
Finally, to quote from Examiner.com (linked above): "The game appears to be a PAL copy of the game and the disc art is the same as the previous one, which means the game is in production worldwide and a release date must be close by.
While no set release date has been announced, many retailers are posting early December release points for the title, which would go in line with the announcement of the game going gold earlier this month and a release before Christmas."
