Head of Polyphony Digital (a subsidary of Sony Computer Entertainment and creators of the Gran Turismo series of games), Kaz Yamauci has made a post on Twitter apparently stating that he believes that the upcoming PS3 title Gran Turismo 5 could require a massive 10GB of hard drive space to install the game for smoother game play.

Gran Turismo 5 will be released at the beginning of November this year for the Sony PlayStation 3 and can actually run using just 256MB of hard drive space. CVG thinks that the ‘recommendation’ by Yamauchi to fully install the game is to “take the heat off the Blu-ray disc” which makes sense.

Of course, 10 GB is a lot of space but, considering the length of time we have waited for GT5 and the anticipation that has built up for it’s release, I doubt many gamers would really mind if they absolutely had to use up 10GB on their hard drives, GT5 is presumably going to be one of the ‘must have’ titles of 2010 after all.

Gran Turismo 5 will be released on November 2nd in America and on November 3rd in Europe and Japan.

This is par for the course in the gaming world I’m afraid this isn’t the first game of the year to get postponed, nor will it be the last.

UPDATE: A Sony spokesperson commented that Gran Turismo 5 has been estimated for a 2010 release in North America and did not see the delay in Japan as impacting the US release
