With GT5 set to release for most people tonight at midnight why not start off with a fresh new thread? That and the other one had a misspelled title anyways. This day is going to go by so slow!

Also, feel free to add me on PSN. I just made a new account specifically for GT5. Cole_Trickle__51 I wont be online right away but plan to once im comfortable in the game.

You couldn't set aside the money for GT5?

I've had my collector's edition reserved and fully paid off at Gamestop for over a year now. The clerk gave me a blank stare when I said I wanted to pay it in full so early.

Is it true that if you go to FutureShop in Canada to pre-order that you would get a free, albeit crappy, steering wheel to go with it?

My last day to pre-order... it's free stuff, so I can't complain. If it really sucks I'll just hock the wheel on craigslist.

I think that was just a promotion. I tried to get it but it was over by then. The wheel's apparently useless though.

I never pre-order games to be honest but I've almost never had trouble finding a game a few days after its release. I've had trouble finding games that the QC government banned due to lack of English packaging but that's obviously another story.

I think part of the reason I'm willing to wait is the fact that I don't have a G27 yet anyways For me that's a big thing cause I've never owned a wheel before and would love to.

You couldn't have sold that wheel on craigslist, it's worthless. The only reason FS had that promotion was to get rid of them.

Just saw Gamespot preview and they really teared into it. However, I don't know if he was a big racing guy.

He's a self-proclaimed racing expert.

In the Vancouver area, I've never had trouble with finding a game, no matter how intensely popular it was (SC2, COD: BO, etc.). The only time there was any gaming shortage was the Wii launch; finding one near Christmas was damn near impossible! And now I haven't touched it for months

I think I've only pre-ordered one game before, and that was Metal Gear Solid 4 (I'm the biggest MGS fanboy ). I only wanted to pre-order GT5 'cos of the free stuff, but now I won't. Maybe I'll wait a week or two and play more COD instead...

I wouldn't worry too much, I've been reading some impressions from people who have had the game for a few days and most are saying it's fantastic. And that's not even counting all the online stuff as the servers are not online yet.

Couple of reviews via Google Translate:

http://translate.google.com/translat...gran-turismo-5

Having read some comments from Finns who are playing it already seems like the AI is rather crap, as mentioned in the Norwegian review.

I realized later that I sort of did tell a fib. Remembered that when I was looking for Wii Fit Plus + Board it was near impossible to find even a while after Christmas. Finally gave up on the idea lol....

Is that the 256mb install? They've been saying the 10GB install is 50 minutes long... Now I know I'm definitely going to just go with the 10GB install right off the bat.
