Okay, everyone just calm down and take it easy. Let's not lose our heads over this…even if it's easy to do so.
We still don't have an official release date for Gran Turismo 5 , but most analysts and industry insiders are relatively convinced it won't make it this year. Realistically speaking, most believe that Q1 2010 is the earliest date one can hope for…and yet, as noted by TheSixthAxis , European website Play has the game listed with a November 27, 2009 release date. Now, a few things to bear in mind: firstly, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi did say GT5 is at a point where Sony can release it "any time" they want . Yamauchi is a perfectionist, though, so he intends to get the product as close to perfect as humanly possible. Secondly, November 27 doesn't appear to be a place-holder date, as those are typically random like December 31 or November 1, or something like that. Thirdly and lastly…well, there is no third. This is all we know. If GT5 does somehow manage to come out this year – and you can bet on a worldwide simultaneous launch – the PS3 is gonna get a huge boost, and that's an understatement.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves , MAG , and Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time are just a few of the exclusives scheduled for 2009, and let's not forget God of War III in March. But if GT5 comes at the end of November, everything's gonna explode …
