SCEA today finally confirmed that Gran Turismo 5 will go on sale throughout North America on Wednesday, November 24. I am excited about this news, but at the same time I am worried. Fans have been waiting for GT5 for so long and at this point the expectations are almost impossible to deliver upon. I commend Sony for not releasing it until they felt like it was to the level that true racing enthusiast would expect and appreciate, but now there is just so much hype that they have to know that some people will be disappointed no matter what.
In Gran Turismo 5, you can tackle the world’s most famous racetracks, rendered in high-definition that is as vivid as the real thing, and get behind the wheel of some of the most legendary cars in motor racing from past to cutting-edge present. An impressive line-up of over 1,000 in-game cars will be featured, including the Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, the Lexus LFA and the McLaren MP4-12C. Players will also go head-to-head on famous legacy circuits such as Autumn Ring, Deep Forest Raceway, and the Grand Valley Speedway, in addition to renowned real-life circuits such as Nurburgring and the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
