GT5 2

According to Italian website, a Sony rep said at GDC last week that Gran Turismo 5 will release this October.

The staffer also mentioned 3D support will be added to the Polyphony racer. The Firmware update which adds the functionality, 3.20, is rumoured for a June drop, probably on the tenth.

The October date falls within the timeframe given by SCEE exec James Armstrong in February.

SCEA exec Peter Dille said at the firm’s GDC press conference it will absolutely be coming this year.

And only on Friday, SCEE said an announcement for its date will be coming “soon”.

It was thought at the weekend that GT5 would also be compatible with PlayStation Move, although that’s since been rubbished.

Thanks, GT Planet.

    When I was sitting through the Move event at GDC, and they said “GT5 will be released this year”, the guy next to me said, really loudly I might add, “yeah right”.

    I think the question that needs to be asked at this point is whether that guy was a Sony employee or not. :-D
