SCEE has declined to comment on a report pointing to a December 4 release for Gran Turismo 5.
Respected French site Jeux Video claims that the racer, along with its own PS3 Slim bundle, will be out in time for Christmas.
However, when we picked up the phone SCEE gave us a straight "no comment".

Further clout comes from the spotting of a leaflet at Gamescom late last month, which listed the new Gran Turismo for release in Q4 of this year. It sounds like we'll probably be playing it by Jesus' Birthday, then.
Surprisingly, the game also appeared in playable form in Germany and you can read our hands-on report for the goods.
