GT5 Discs "Being Stamped As We Speak"

Release date please!

Motoring website ‘Jalopnik’ has managed to grab a few words with Kazunori Yamauchi, the father of Gran Turismo, and it seems he has a few words to say about GT5 that may make fans sigh in relief:

“The discs are being stamped as we speak.”

If this is true then it means any issues that were holding the game back will have been resolved.  Either that or the discs are blank and the game will be getting a 25GB patch further down the line.  Come on Sony, give us a release date.

      Mine too.

      Please don’t GT5 become the next Duke Nukem Forever, which it seems to be already. Ironically, DNF also means ‘did not finish’ in racing games.

    Probably meant a HD unscaled GT4 is being stamped because GT5 is being delayed another year.

      Don’t hold your breath. They’ve been stamped with Spring 2011.

      id hope so! i still think they delayed it to avoid COD and to get it slighty closer to xmas to boost ps3 sales. it will come out in the first to weeks of December i think. still need to get my wheel setup ordered!

        I love my G25, but is slightly noisy with the force feedback. I believe they fixed this in the G27.

      There’s still two months left on the clock. I’d be surprised if that happened.

      I wish that were true as it would force their hand. Sadly it is not. GT5 will sell by the truckload no matter when they release it. They might miss a few sales for the kids who only get games for Christmas but that’s a drop in the ocean. The only real loss will be console bundles.
