It's got to the point where we don't even believe reports that come directly from Kazunori Yamauchi anymore. But this is no joke. Gran Turismo 5 development is complete.
Series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed during an interview at Las Vegas car show SEMA today that discs are rolling out of the production line literally right now.
"The discs are being stamped as we speak," Yamauchi told Jalopnik when asked for an update on the game's endlessly delayed release.
He didn't actually say when the game would be out - that's an issue even the Gods themselves must still be pondering over. But with the discs in production at least we know Yamauchi and team has stopped faffing about and put their pens down.
GT5 was, until recently, due out today, we remind you as we stare bitterly at our cold, recently unused PS3 (thanks mostly to Halo Reach).
They'd better get those discs to shops before Christmas.
