Gran Turismo 5 out in November

Much-delayed racer nearing launch.

Sony has announced that Polyphony Digital's oft-delayed racing game Gran Turismo 5 will be released on 2nd November for PS3 in North America.

The game was shown off at Sony's E3 conference and is set to include 3D support, along with many other PS3 titles.

Polyphony Digital's Kazunori Yamauchi has repeatedly said the ambitious racer is on the verge of completion, and Sony has repeatedly said the delays are down to the team's perfectionism.

It highest-profile slip recently came after Sony announced a March 2010 launch date at last year's Tokyo Game Show, before having to delay it again at the start of the year.

GT5 hasn't been shy though - it's been seen in public many times since its unveiling as Vision Gran Turismo at PS3's coming out party in 2005 - and is playable again at E3 this week, where Yamauchi is also giving interviews.
