Every time we see more footage of Gran Turismo 5 or pop in Prologue , we grow that much more excited for the final product. And if it does indeed drop this year…party time, baby!
Plenty of evidence has been found regarding the very possible launch of GT5 in 2009, and now, we have another little hint: if you listen to the latest 1Up podcast , you'll hear the conversation concerning a "big Sony title" that people initially didn't expect to arrive this year. Someone asks what this mystery title is and they add, "yeah, what are you driving at…?" This week is the GamesCom event in Cologne, Germany, and Sony's press conference is scheduled for Tuesday. Therefore, we don't have much longer to wait before a few of 2009's biggest announcements should hit the Internet like a ton of bricks; the PS3 price drop, the PS3 Slim, and, if recent info is accurate, a 2009 release date for GT5. Really, all we want is a price drop but we can always use a few more in the way of jaw-dropping reveals. The only problem we have will be the additional difficulty in picking a Game of the Year…how many titles do we have to consider?! This is getting nutty; why not release The Last Guardian , too?
Anyway, keep a close eye on PSXE for all the big stuff this week. At this rate, the news may be bigger than what we saw during Sony's conference at E3.
