I plan on getting it first day. I'm going have to get another internal hard drive. I want to go big, maybe 640 or 750 GB. GT5 will require 5GB of HDD space.

I can't wait either. I have been very patient considering I have been waiting for this game to come out since 2006.

I feel bad for my girlfriend. The increased amount of neglect I am going to show her when I get my hands on this game is inevitable. Good thing she loves me.

TOKYO (Dow Jones)--Sony Corp. (6758.TO) will delay the global release of its Gran Turismo 5 car racing game for the PlayStation 3 console from early November to "some time before the end of the year," a spokesman for the Japanese electronics maker's videogame division said Thursday.

Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. has decided to delay the launch because it now expects last-minute fine-tuning of the software to take longer than expected, the spokesman said. The company has yet to set new release dates, he added.

The game is the latest title in the popular Gran Turismo series, which has sold more than 56 million copies worldwide since its debut in 1997.

Sony had earlier planned to release the title on Nov. 2 in the U.S. and Europe, and on Nov. 3 in Japan.

I already fully paid for the game.

So what kind of racing are you guys looking forward to?

WRC?
NASCAR?
Super GT?
Shift-Karts?
Drifting?
Other?

These are most of the new additions. I think there's more, I just can't think of them off the top of my head.

I honestly believe IGN just prefer 360, lol.

Metal Gear 4 had to be ****ing epic as ever to get a 10.. and still got ***** complaints about cutscenes..

GTA4 had to have an incredibly well written story to get a 10..

how is this game not atleast a 9.0-9.5? in my opinion IGN prefers 360. Which is fine... ... :nonono:

I really don't care about the reviews. I have beaten every GT game. Pretty much, what they have complained about is the fact that the load times are long, and that the game is similar to the older games. I have seen games load much slower compared to GT5. And the fact that they complained about it being similar is nothing but bias and ignorance. Call of Duty is one of the biggest franchises in the gaming business. Don't argue with me that those games are not similar.

I also find it funny how they are complaining about the online. The online just came out today, yet some review sites had reviews on the online portion of GT5 put up two days ago.

I hope everyone enjoys GT5.

NFS and GT are two completely different racing games. Arcade Vs. Realism, which is the whole point of GT. The amount of testing they did on real cars, is the core of Gran Turismo.

Yes i have and it takes a lot longer than 20-30 sec a race....the menu to pick the right cars for your current event is a nightmare ...i mean when you choose an event and you dont have the right car in your garage ...why not point out or highlight the cars you can choose from and were you can find/buy them ?
I mean why dont the older cars appear in the dealerships ? in real life older models can be found in dealerships lol

When you look at a race in the bottom right corner there's a garage option and it lists all the cars you have in the garage you can use in that race.

And you can also look at the entry requirements for each race and the typical opponents you will race against so you have a good idea of what car to use.

In many races you can pick any car you want. Just look at the list that shows the typical opponents to find out what cars you can use.

And anyway it's not too hard to figure out what car you need.
