GT5 release date reports not official - Sony

Sony dismisses GDC reports

Sony has told CVG that the release date for Gran Turismo 5 remains unannounced - in response to claims a Sony rep dropped an October release.

A Sony "rep" apparently said at GDC last week that the long-long-awaited PS3 racer will be with us in October. But by 'Sony rep' we guess the Italian report actually meant 'some bloke in a PlayStation t-shirt who knows more about man makeup than GT5'. Google Translate didn't pick that one up.

"We haven't officially announced a release date for GT5", a proper Sony UK rep told CVG this morning, before saying they couldn't comment further.

Fair enough - stand down, racing leathers off, helmets away.
