Gran Turismo 5 discs "are being stamped as we speak", game creator Kazunori Yamauchi has said.
However, he stopped short of revealing to Jalopnik a new date for the game's release.
So the question remains: 2010 or 2011? Can enough copies of Gran Turismo 5 be stamped to warrant a release this year?
Sony still thinks so, but industry sources told Eurogamer yesterday there's "not much hope" of the game arriving before 2011.
Time is slipping away. Will Sony risk a December launch for a years-in-the-making PS3 blockbuster?
