Gran Turismo 5 release announcement "soon"

Yamauchi finally gearing up to name the date for the PS3 racer

We respect the fact that Gran Turismo 5 will have a billion cars, each made with a trillion polygons and all that. Great. But when will we get to play the damn game? The producer, Kazunori Yamauchi will tell us "soon", apparently.

The game is expected out next year, but exactly when is anyone's guess. When quizzed recently on the game's release, Yamauchi said: "We made the announcement today that [the handheld game player PSP GO] is coming out Oct. 1 [with Gran Turismo 5 on it]. We will give the release date of the Gran Turismo 5 soon."

We think he meant that PSP Go will be out on October 1 with Gran Turismo PSP on it, which looks swell, by the way.

Fingers crossed the PS3 game will get an early 2010 release.
