Gran Turismo 5 Full Version in 2009?

Media : December 3, 2008

It’s been a long time coming but gamers itching to get their hands on the full version of Gran Turismo 5 may finally have something to celebrate. According to Spanish newspaper El Financiero (why can’t we have cool newspaper names like that?) the ultimate video game driving simulation may be on U.S. store shelves around Christmas 2009.

While most gamers were irritated at the initial Gran Turismo: Prologue release earlier this year (40 dollars for half a game?!?), fanboys will be happy that the full version is finally on its the way. Series creator Kazunori Yamauchi promises that Gran Turismo 5 will contain the requisite new tracks and vehicles we’ve come to expect, so hopefully it will be worth the wait. If they finally include realistic damaging to the cars (something that Gran Turismo has never really done) you can consider this one a done deal.
