Gran Turismo 5 out November 24

Sony's much-delayed racer gets a new release date; full list of tracks and cars revealed.

Gran Turismo 5 will be released in the UK and North America on November 24, Sony announced today. The game will be released in Australia on November 25. The publisher has also unveiled full details of the cars and tracks that will be featured in the game, with a total 1,031 cars and 71 courses to choose from.

No really, GT5 is actually being released.

It will include basic road cars such as the Honda Accord and Ford Ka, through to supercars such as the Lamborghini Murcielago and McLaren F1. Famous courses such as the Nurburgring and Top Gear test track will also be featured. The publisher also confirmed that GT5's much-touted dynamic weather system will only work on 11 of the 71 tracks on offer, while five of the 71 will have the option for a night/day cycle. The full list of cars is available here, while the full tracklist is here.

Gran Turismo 5 was originally unveiled for the PlayStation 3 back in 2006. Since then it has faced numerous delays, missing its first shipping date back in March of this year where its release was put on indefinite hold, before later being delayed again past its November 2 release date.

"We sincerely apologize to GT fans for the delay," said Sony Computer Entertainment producer Taku Imasaki in a statement on the official PlayStation Blog at the time, when Sony promised the game would be in stores before Christmas. Retailers began listing the game for a 2011 release, before Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi revealed that disks were already in production earlier this month.

@Ansem_Rev its pretty amazing just how wrong you are. I own both ps3 and 360. I dont choose sides cause i find enjoyment from both. And ill agree with you forza was an amazing game. I prefer GT though. Like whats wrong with that dude. If your into blondes and i like brunettes are you gonna fall me a fanboy for saying my girl is smokin hot and yours is only pretty? its all about preferences. These arguments about whos better diminish what gaming is about.

joninja Posted Nov 18, 2010 6:50 pm GMT One thing I'm pretty surprised at is the lack of Porsche all together. I figured they'd at least have 911 GT2's and GT3's. I was really hoping for the Carrera GT and the 918. Well, DLC hopefully. Besides that, gt 5 will own. EA Games has pretty much exclusive rights to Porsche, however RUF is considered a true manufacturer because of the amount of customization that goes into them even though they start with a Porsche, so the rights don't exclude them. That's why GT series and TDU will have RUF's instead. Now how Forza got Porsche I don't know, maybe paid EA to get rights to the rights!?!

I know it's a Japanese game, but seriously, is it really necessary to have 47 different versions of the SKYLINE? It's just masturbation at that point. Get a room. : )

I don't care that it was delayed for so long, I have been waiting just like the rest of us. I am glad that they put so much effort into making this game and if everyone else (all the other companies) put THAT much effort into games we would have much better games than we do. Don't get me wrong, we have great games but.....yeah.

What the heck "dynamic weather system will only work on 11 of the 71 tracks five of the 71 will have the option for a night/day cycle." FIVE YEARS AND $60 MILLION FOR THIS LITTLE.

@nissanmaxima, are you buying the game? If not, then stop trolling. The game isn't out yet, and stop making lousy comments.

They're both cameras. What you're talking about is software.

The Eye toy is a camera. Kinect is a motion sensor that can recognize voice and video images.

I'm a huge fan of GT but I think they could have taken about a third of the cars in there out, and replaced them with more premium ones. No SRT-8 Jeep? but they have a Dodge Truck? and no Cadillac CTS-V? but they have a BMW M3 and M5? I probably won't be driving half the cars in the game cause they are just so slow and a waste of in-game money. Here's hoping they make up for it with DLC.

@SonOfKira That`s because Fifa has all teams / players and divisions available.... If they had the premier league with chelsea or Man U missing then ppl would be complaining.

@luna_chanfui No because Forza wasn't released as Forza 3 Epilogue for 50 bucks like Gran Turismo was. Thats sad that they had nothing for ps3 so they finally gave ppl a demo disk.. Thats what it was. Maybe you didnt hear about it because it was really bad. And im not coming here to troll for no reason. And look at the car list what 50 thousand Nissans. Like what is that

@ nissanmaxima you my friend are right on point.

i just looked at the car list. just how many civics, s2000's, silvia's do you really need? they have the same car way to much with model years only 1-2 yrs apart. that is not impressive (silvia same model year but different colors? they count that as 1 car each? LOL JOKE). i see GT is just like there other versions. a whole bunch of cars YOU WILL NEVER DRIVE! i just looked at pics for the first time and i saw a crap load of cars that should not even be in the game. once again GT puts in a bunch of silly pointless cars that you will have to drive in career mode. WACK

@Ansem_Rev Do you think ppl will buy Forza DEMO disc?LOL.... When you want to troll at this GT article, just think about "your" game first.. If forza is so good, why you came to this article and trolled?

Thats nothing - I'm hearing that a playable demo of Duke Nukem Forever 3D is bundled in the GT5 collectors pack - along with the Horn of a Narwal and a 100% Genuine Lephrechaun's Pot 'O Gold (rumour regarding the inclusion of the bottled sweat of a politician proved a hoax mind) - LOL BTW - Those cars in the trailer dont look very photo-realistic - like it was running @ about 20fps (yes, I am kidding ) :D

Nissan and Toyota pretty much dominate that list. Japanese cars for the win. I just wish they had the Subaru Forester STI.
