Wait a minute…it seems O-Games may know something we don't.
O-Games, publisher of the recent PlayStation Network addition, Superstars V8 Racing , has announced a very interesting competition: they will give away 10 copies of Gran Turismo 5 to those who come out on top in some Superstars races. First, the contest details- weekly competitions will begin Friday, November 12 and you can find all the rules and regulations at the Superstars V8 Racing Facebook page . Players must pay attention to weekly updates on the week-long challenges that will result in 10 winners who have also opted to "Like" that aforementioned Facebook page. Said Greg Lanz, General Manager of O-Games, Inc.:
"Critics say that Superstars V8 Racing is a worthy investment and does more than just fill the void for all the racing fans waiting for the launch of Grand Turismo 5. Beginning next week and for the next ten weeks, we’ll be challenging players of Superstars V8 Racing on PlayStation Network to various leaderboard competitions, and award winners a brand new copy of Gran Turismo 5. Superstars V8 Racing is the perfect game for racing fans to sharpen their skills as they wait for Gran Turismo 5, and what better way than to reward fans with a brand new copy of the game. Exactly when we can ship GT5 is anybody’s guess, but rest assured, we will send out prizes whenever it hits retail shelves."
While they say they have no idea when GT5 will be available, it seems unlikely anybody would hold such a competition if there was any chance they wouldn't have the prizes when the contest completed. Granted, they may be saying, "eh, you just have to wait if you win" but then again, if we pair this with the multiple examples of GT5 somehow existing in the wild (check YouTube), we have to wonder… Anybody else think O-Games already has those 10 retail copies of GT5, but just aren't allowed to say when it will arrive?
Of course, the contest does last for 10 weeks, so maybe they "know" it won't be out until January. …that'd be a kick in the head, wouldn't it?
