208w ago - During a short demo presentation of Gran Turismo 5 earlier this week, SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda re-confirmed the March 2010 GT5 PS3 release for Japan.
Without getting too specific, he then revealed that Sony was eying a vague "Summer 2010" release, which hopefully means we'll see it before leaves start falling off trees next year.
However, those seeking to get their hands on Gran Turismo 5 sooner will find a PS3 demo on PlayStation Network next week.
To quote: "Interestingly, Hinojosa-Miranda had mentioned to me that he was traveling the U.S. in the coming week to photograph cars for Polyphony's reference material. With nearly 1,000 cars in the game, it's not that big of a stretch to think that they may still be working to flesh out the game's roster.
And while he wouldn't confirm how far along they were towards completing Gran Turismo 5 development, he did say this work wasn't necessarily for the current game.
"It's not for Gran Turismo 5 or a DLC release," he said, clarifying that it's constantly building on its reference material archives. After years of development and multiple Gran Turismo titles, how else do you think it's filling those garages but with non-stop research?
On the subject of DLC for the title, he said it was something it was considering, but had nothing to announce at this time."

There was never a confirmed date of december 2009, only been rumors. Back at Tokyo Game Show a couple months ago, they officially announced the release date for Japan to be March 2010, with Europe and North America to follow shortly.
The reason Europe and NA's release date hasn't been announced is mainly due to marketing reasons from SCEA, and SCEE. The game would be done by then, but its not Polyphony's decision for its release date.
Man its good to see gt5 is almost out, i got my ps3 just for that reason and ive waited years for the game to come out, lol stupid me. Anyways yeah i did ask around quite a few game stores and it was supposed to come out this december and if i remember there was a date around 25th September and i did ask the big shops and they all said the same thing at pretty much the same time.
I even looked around on the net and forums and if you look around carefully you'll quickly gather that gt5 was supposed to be out a loooong time ago. For reasons that i cant quite gather it was never released on time on these two occasions, these werent just rumors i promise you i went out to the game stores and i did ask around i swear it.
Anyways i guess we will see what happens now, but im telling you that i wouldnt be the least bit suprised if it turns out to be delayed in the uk or we dont see it in a long time. Ive given up finding out the realease date now because im hurt and want to commit suicide lol.
Ive waited for ages man how much longer?? ive had all the gt games and ive loved it from the beginning!!! Whats this demo thingy about is it a demo game where you can play it or is it a demonstration because there seem to be alot of demonstrations and leaked footage around on the net
I almost forgot to tell you guys that my bro works in argos and its even on their catalouge, if you take a look at the following link you'll soon know what i mean: argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/9009026/Trail/searchtext%3EGRANTURISMO+5.htm
Also if you take a look at the gt5 cover pic and look to the bottom left side to it you will see this "We are sorry but this much anticipated game will no longer launch in 2009, It is expected to launch in March 2010" I mean whats this about!?
This is what confirmed that this game was supposed to be released in 2009 and it expains the guys at the shops saying that there was a delay with this game at least 2 times!
Also guys if you want spoilers here is a link, in this link theres a list of cars that you will/should be seeing: ultimatecarpage.com/forum/gaming/33712-gran-turismo-5-a.html
Ahhhh! the GT5 finally geting closer to my ps3.. it was just building anticipation right from the launch of the ps3, with the GT HD concept (still in my ps3 lol), the demo from the prologue (from a jap psn acount), the GT5 prologue and now i'm ready for the real one
In my opinion, this game has to be perfect. We have all been waiting for so long now, and the release dates keep being postponed. Being a huge GT fan since the first part of the series, I hope for the best.
I bought my ps3 in the hope of playing GT5 soon, and now it's been 3 years of waiting... Hopefully, this date is the final one.
