[UPDATE] Gran Turismo 5 delayed to coincide with PlayStation Move release

move wheel [UPDATE] Gran Turismo 5 delayed to coincide with PlayStation Move releaseMixed news from Polyphony today as it is announced that – once again – Gran Turismo 5 is being delayed.

But is there a good reason this time?

We recently reported that Gran Turismo 5 will be one of the hardcore games that will have PlayStation Move support.  At the time not much information was released, and many people assumed it would just be the head tracking that had been mentioned last year.

It turns out this isn’t the case – as full Move support has been confirmed.  A press release from Polyphony states the following;

“Polyphony Digital Inc is pleased to announce that Gran Turismo 5 will launch with full PlayStation Move support.

Gran Turismo 5 is set to be the most immersive instalment yet, giving players the chance to feel what it would be like to control some of the world’s most exotic cars.

Gran Turismo 5 will be bundled with a limited edition wheel which will house the PlayStation Move, and combined with the PlayStation Eye will deliver 2010′s most authentic driving experience.”

That’s the good news - however Polyphony then went on to say;

“Due to these additions, we will be pushing back the launch date of Gran Turismo 5 to coincide with the release of the PlayStation Move.

Whilst we acknowledge that this is a disappointment to fans of the series, it is necessary to provide the level of polish seen in previous games.”

What is everyone’s view on this?  Yes we have all been shouting at Sony to not just produce party games for the Move – but to delay a game of this calibre, especially when it’s taken over 5 years to develop, is just madness.

And “limited edition wheel”? Oh dear…

Yes - this was our April Fools story for today. You should have spotted the modified Wii steering wheel, but if Sony do end up making a Move Wheel that looks like this we'll settle for 2% of sales for our charity fund.
