Looks like you can actually believe it this time

By default, we feel we need to be really skeptical about this, but actually, this may be the real deal this time. Like, seriously. After so many delays and unbelievable hype, Gran Turismo 5 may FINALLY be coming out.

Sony has posted on the PlayStation Blog in no uncertain terms that the highly sophisticated racing sim will be available on November 24.

The game had originally been planned for a 2009 release, but it was pushed back to 2010 before a specific date was ever given. Then, earlier this year it finally set a date in stone - November 2. As November 2 came around, though, developer Polyphony Digital was like, "Wait! We need more time!"

Then, online retailers started setting release dates in 2011. But now, finally, we have a new date, and it's right before Thanksgiving.

Kazunori Yamauchi, the man at the helf of Gran Turismo, defended all the delays saying the game is really, really good. He said, "Gran Turismo 5 is an ambitious project, with challenges and complexities which have made it our version of the Apollo Space Program!"

In addition to being the most sophisticated Gran Turismo game yet, GT5 also has full 3D support. The game has cost tens of millions of dollars to create.

More than 1,000 cars, dozens of tracks, a dynamic weather system, a full social-networking online environment, and a brand new track-building tool are all waiting the many Gran Turismo fans who have been waiting years for this moment.
