Gran Turismo 5 seems like vaporware to many. It's a game that has been delayed countless times. So many times, that many are believing that Sony won't ever ship it. But with the holiday season coming up, it seems like Sony has finally got a place where GT5 can no longer be delayed, even if Sony wishes it could be. If this game hits one more snag, who knows how many pre-orders will be canned.

According to a recent post on the Sony PlayStation blog, GT5 will now go sale throughout North American on November 24th. Meaning that unless we see another last-minute delay, people will be giving up their Thanksgiving dinners in order to play another round of GT5. But that's not all. Sony's special edition Blue PlayStation 3 will also go on sale along with the game, but the console will be a Japan exclusive at least for now.

It will ship with GT5 in Japan for around $430 starting November 25th, but hopefully the bundle will make it to other markets soon.

I much prefer the regular black color to this cheap looking blue. Hopefully this special edition blue model remains a Japan exclusive, because I was planning on buying one for my brother for Christmas when GT5 finally gets released.

Much like GT5, they think they can just put a new coat on it and call it new:P

As long as we have been waiting for it, now finally seeing it, the tracks and everything else is exactly the same, just with new HD textures applied to the objects!

Unless they have twice as many new courses and double the cars all with cockpit views, then they can just keep delaying it until the PS4 comes out!

I had a '65 Impala Super Sport that was that color.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I looked through the car list and its quite impressive. The tracks are about the same since gt1 though. I don't care I'm a big gt fan. Might even buy a ps3 for this, but doubtful. That $ would go much further in my pc ;-)
