We told you that a release date for Gran Turismo 5 was coming soon and now Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has given another hint as to when that is.
The game was reportedly delayed from a March 2010 release in Japan until just a month later, and though this still may be correct (though it was most likely a ghastly mistranslation), a recent update on Sony Japan’s website about Polyphony Digital’s game pins its ship date to quite some time later.
The news comes by way of an update to the game’s page on Sony Japan’s website under ‘product information’, which adds “October, November 2010” next to Gran Turismo 5’s release period. This complements a report by Italian gaming website 4News that the game would be out this October, which was later denied by Sony to be “speculation and rumour”. Though this update does further corroborate the comments of Peter Dille, Sony’s marketing vice president, that the game would release this year — you can’t get much later than November.

[UPDATE] – Automatic translators are playing havoc with our hearts and minds, turning the Japanese “3rd month 2010” (ie. the previously delayed March release) into “October, November 2010”. Why it would do such an odd thing and align with previous statements is beyond us. Nonetheless, we do believe that we will see Gran Turismo 5 in those months, but for safety the date is to be announced.
