11/25 for Japan

So post 8571 was correct?

So, originally the launch day was Nov 2nd in the US. What day was it in Japan?

Perhaps we can make broad generalizations as to when the US date may be (earlier or later than 11/25, based on the difference of the original dates).

Is that based on Logicool re-releasing the DFGT and G27 on that day (they were ogiinally planned to ship on 3rd with GT5)?

That's what I'm thinking too.

It's looking like it'll be released on the 23rd in the US, the 24th in Europe and the 25th in Japan.
Usually games are released on Friday in Europe.

could be like GT4 with a lot of us waiting for months.

I can't see that happening, although you have to wonder if they'll be able to print it in sufficient quantity to satisfy the demand. Shame they couldn't have gotten a GT5 bundle out for Christmas too.

Even the UK friday release has been ignored on occasion, amazon will send games out before release date so you receive them on the day.

There are exceptions in the UK.

COD - Tuesday
Kinect - Wednesday
Halo - Normally Tuesday

With huge releases they try and match US dates.

An actual announcement of the release day? But what will happen with this thread? Can we at least get a link from the OT (which I guess can go up immediately?). We need to cherish the insanity of this tread. We can tell our grandchildren about these weeks, while they are waiting for GT7.

I expect we'll get more info later today from the ps blog.

I'm sure they're more excited about the day than all of us as they'll no longer have to monitor every post while deleting GT5 comments.

About Move, Sky Fighter and other shit we don't give 2 fucks about.

The blog is there for us to spam, nothing more, nothing else.

What a crazy few weeks this has been :lol

I'm still finding it hard to believe that all this hubbub is just for a damn release date, which Sony should've courteously provided when they delayed the damn thing.

That's why I said usually. I don't think Sony has ever done it before.

Okay, what?
I think they're saying that, because there's no difference in the damage model, that footage is from GT5P rather than the final release of GT5 itself.
