The unofficial GT at Gamescom 09 thread.

287 replies 7 views Edited Aug 18, 2009

Well after reading various sites, there is a storm of evidence to suggest that GT5 will be at GC. Not only that but that it will be playable along with GTPSP. So I am starting this thread with both games in mind (just in case one does not show). If there is a storm of news we should probably keep it in one place instead of flooding the news, media and comments thread along with the board in general (hope this is ok). So I will get the ball rolling. I will update this thread to the best of my ability but you if you see something that post it.

 

GTPlanet says GT5 GC appearance is likely:

Famitsu says GT5 and GTPSP will be at GC09 and they both will be playable:

Look at around 1:20 in this youtube video, GT5 booths... which would mean GT5 will be playable at GC:

I have a question.  Are some gaming websites going to stream this, or is the media not allowed in there?  I think the event starts at like 6:00 PM over there, which is roughly 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM here in NA.

Thank you very much.  I don't know where to look,  I thought Gamespot was doing it, but I'm not sure now.

there is a space for the convention in PS Home, supposedly updated with announcements as they happen (but i'm sure they will be delayed)

no idea if that includes GT5 but it is one of if not the biggest release coming on PS3

Yeah, E3 '09, was delayed for like 3 hours.  Plus I heard that they will release videos AFTER the event on PS Store, but I want it live.  If there are unlockables in PS Home for watching it, like E3, then I might check it out.

I love that it's in Cologne. They're only 1 hour ahead of us. Sony's conference starts at 6:30pm, so that's 5:30pm here. It's a slight annoyance that E3 has to be in the US!

luciFOUR, Germany would be 5 hours ahead of the Eastern time zone, so it should start around 1PM here (if they start on time).

Cheers,
