It’s been an agonising test of endurance for Gran Turismo fans, but after years of delays the wait is almost over and the game will finally be in your hands in less than a month’s time.
Or at least it would have been if it hadn’t been delayed yet again. Yes, the widely publicised November release date is sadly no more – Mr. Pedantic Yamauchi must have spotted some stitching that was out of line on the leather upholstery in one of the car models, halting production immediately. Fortunately, Gran Turismo 5 was proudly on display flexing its polygonal muscles at this year’s Eurogamer Expo, so I gladly took it for a spin with the knowledge that it may still be a while before we are united again.
GT5 was certainly one of the leading attractions of the Expo, attracting quite a crowd whose expectations have now spanned over six years. I too will admit that it was one of the highest priorities on my checklist of games to play, as I scurried along to the inviting stand as soon as I entered the showroom.
