This is starting to become as big as the PS3 Slim and price drop rumor was; we just want it to go away and have the official announcement. But hey, when more evidence pops up, we know the fans crave it. The dudes abide.
You've heard about the distinct possibility of seeing Gran Turismo 5 before we wave goodbye to 2009. The latest update comes from a European source that says a GT5 PS3 Slim bundle is slated to release on December 4, which would fit into previous semi-reliable rumors that say this top-notch racer will release in time for the holiday rush. But now, PSBeyond supposedly has a new piece of inside information and if it's accurate, it's going to come as a very big surprise: the "extremely reliable source" in question apparently confirmed that GT5 will actually launch on September 25 in the UK. It seems to be way too close in our eyes but it does coincide beautifully with the Tokyo Game Show. Furthermore, it usually takes some time before they offer a bundle package with a game; to release the game by itself towards the end of this month and then the bundle package in the first week of December would make sense. Oh, and let's not forget that Polyphony has talked about the connections between GT PSP and GT5; the former launches on October 1 alongside the new PSP Go. So they might want both games available ASAP.
What say you? Might we get a chance to play one of the generation's most anticipated titles in only a few weeks time? Or are you still sticking with the December theory?
