In a week
bursting with big big big news, one announcement stood out above all others: the final and confirmed release date of November 24th, 2010 for Gran Turismo 5. Release date changes are no fun for anyone, but I was thrilled to see PS3 gamers staying patient and positive while the release date was finalized. Thanks again for all your patience, and please let us know what you think of GT5 when it hits the PS3 on November 24th with over 1000 cars, stereoscopic 3D support, a new track editor, and countless other new features.
In other news: The new Nazi Zombies mode in Black Ops is taking all of my time, as expected. I’m thrilled by the slick new graphical presentation and gameplay tweaks, and I’m looking forward to playing more maps soon. If you’re up for it his weekend, my PSN I.D. is shumanji.
