Last week Sony's chief executive in southern Europe, James Armstrong was reported to have revealed to Spanish newspaper El Financiero that Gran Turismo 5 will be released at Christmas 2009. However, Sony Computer Entertainment UK was unable to confirm the game's release when speaking to today.

"Polyphony are working on GT5, but we cannot confirm a launch date at this point in time," said a Sony Computer Entertainment UK spokesperson.

Given that Gran Turismo 5 Prologue was released in the UK back in March 2008 we certainly hope the full game will be at least close to completion come Christmas 2009.

One of the main guy's who is working on the game (I can't remember his name - typical) laughed at a 2010 release date for this game. He was quoted as saying "We'll see it a lot sooner than we think". This points towards a Spring/Summer release date in my opinion - i sure hope so, as far as racing games go Gran Turismo quite simply is the best there was, the best there is and the best there ever will be!

The reason development is taking so long however, is because some companies (I'm looking at YOU Ferrari) are objecting to showing their cars getting damaged in the game.......Polyphony Digital have to find a way around this if they really want GT5 to have "Perfect realism".

If it isn't ready by the end of 2009 then they should just give up.
