News Second online retailer declares GT6 to be a PS3 title

Just off the bat from a similar item last week, another online retailer has uploaded a sales listing for Gran Turismo 6.

Much like the one for NewEgg, the Italian site now has GT6 listed as ready for pre-order (it's come to our knowledge that this was also the case for NewEgg, though had removed that option when our article went live).

What's more interesting is that's listing also includes a release date – according to the website, GT6 will start appearing on the shelves of your nearest gaming retailer by November this year (November 28th, if you want specifics).

There was, at time of writing, also an image of the GT6 box art featured on the page, which we've added to this article. However, before anyone starts clamouring over the depicted car being the latest Porsche 911 GT3 (only EA holds the rights to include Porsches in its video games), it's worth pointing out that this is placeholder art only.

Especially as the image itself appears to be a lightly edited version of one of Porsche's own press images for the new 911 halo car…

Instead of this new discovery reinforcing the rumours of the title's release before the year is out, though, this second announcement – you could argue – actually hinders them: if the game will indeed be released in the next seven months or so, why on Earth hasn't Sony or Polyphony Digital announced anything? Why aren't there any teaser trailers or screenshots?

It just doesn't add up.

Nevertheless, we'll still be on the look-out for any Gran Turismo 6 announcements, and we'll still be posting the latest news as soon as we hear it.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe GT6 will be released this year for the PS3, or do you sit on the other side of the fence? Let us know in the comments section, and in our dedicated GT6 forum.
