No Gran Turismo 5 until 2009 for the UK

In an email dispatched by a leading retailer of video games in the United Kingdom, GAME, has notified its customers that Gran Turismo 5 will not be made available for its consumer until 2009.  The constant pushback of this title is starting to become a growing pain for most gamers around the world, but it seems even worse for the Europeans lying in wait.

The email released also pushed the sale of Gran Turismo Prologue in the UK for £19.99.  As many know this title will feature 5 tracks with 40 cars available on release.  The game will also allow for online racing as well.

Our sympathies go out to the racing enthusiasts across the pond for the delay.
