Sony Computer Entertainment America confirmed that Gran Turismo 5 goes on sale throughout North America on Wednesday, November 24.
The Polyphony Digital-developed racing game is a PlayStation 3 exclusive, as always. Sony delayed the game slightly in October, to give the game more development and polish time. Over 56 million units of the Gran Turismo series have shipped worldwide on PS2, PS3, PSOne, and PSP since the series launched in 1997.
In Gran Turismo 5, players burn rubber on famous racetracks around the world, such as Nurburgring and the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, and legacy circuits such as Autumn Ring, Deep Forest Raceway, and the Grand Valley Speedway. The game features 1,000 in-game real-world cars from manufacturers around the world, such as the Lamborghini Murcielago LP 670-4 SuperVeloce, the Lexus LFA, and the McLaren MP4-12C.
Other features include a dynamic weather system, high definition graphics, social networking features to share milestones from the game with friends, and all the familiar features users expect from a Gran Turismo title.
