GT5 "source" comments are "rumour and speculation"

Sony saying nothing on new 2009 rumour

Sony has deemed recent rumours regarding a 2009 release for Gran Turismo 5 as "rumour and speculation".

Following a much talked about Amazon listing, which pinned the game for a December 29 release in US, so-called sources have cropped up to say that a 2009 release is highly likely, although they claim the Amazon date is incorrect.

Sony said: "We haven't announced a release date for GT5 yet," when CVG put in a call over the Amazon date last week, adding they "can't comment on the US".

All eyes are on Sony's massive three-hour press conference to take place before Gamescom in German on August 18. We'll be there.
