Asia Shipping Out November 22-26: Gran Turismo 5

Dancing and racing games lead regional releases, with Michael Jackson game and Polyphony Digital's long-awaited title heading to stores.

It's been a long, long time coming, but Sony's hotly anticipated racing simulator--Gran Turismo 5--is finally ready to zoom onto PlayStation 3s this week. This console exclusive was first unveiled to the world in 2005, and during its time in production, it has reportedly racked up a US$60 million budget. But developer Polyphony Digital is aiming to have all that time and money pay off for patient gamers, packing the game with more than 1,000 cars, a horde of racing modes (including Road, Rally, NASCAR, Drift, Kart, and more), a track maker, and plenty more. Gran Turismo is scheduled for release this Wednesday, November 24.

It's not all about hardcore racing action this week, though, with music fans catered for with the release of Ubisoft's Michael Jackson The Experience. This "performance-based" game features 27 of the King of Pop's biggest hits and is set for release on November 23.

To find out what else is out this week,* check out the list below:

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 23
Michael Jackson The Experience (PSP)
The Sly Collection (PS3)
Worms: Battle Islands (Wii)

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 24
Gran Turismo 5 (PS3)

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 25
Anno 1404 Gold Edition (PC)

*Dates based on confirmed Singapore release.

They make you wait for several years and suddenly they release the game one day at random in the middle of the week. I'm already busy.

@apitz_hnu90 Yay! Btw, nice Vids. Does anyone know the song title? The name of the song is "Give me a reason-Daiki kasho" and because of this song I am getting the gt5 as a present from my girlfriend, she saw the video and got really impressed with the music and how amazing was the video!!

Yay! Asia Release dates! So, I take it that the November 24th release date for GT5 is world wide, except Europe? Pre-Ordered Gran Turismo 5, now I just gotta wait! Also excited for The Sly Collection. Gosh... my wallet is getting thinner and thinner.
