Sony and Polyphony Digital announced the release dates of the highly anticipated [i]Gran Turismo 4[/i] today at the Tokyo Game Show. The game will hit store shelves in Japan and the US on December 3, followed by Europe on December 14. [i]GT 4[/i] was originally set for release earlier this summer before rumors of it being pushed to next year.
Also, [i]Gran Turismo 4[/i] will not have online capabilities. While being able to play online was one of the original enhancements over its previous version, the company did not disclose why the feature was removed. The most likely explanation is that Sony wanted the game released in time for Christmas.
