While fans all over the world sit and wait for word on the holiday release date for Gran Turismo 5, some lucky bastard is sitting in his home playing it.

Reader Alex sent along this video of YouTube user You5825 racing through Gran Turismo 5 on his PlayStation 3. It doesn't look to be a demo or a pre-recorded video, and with the discs being stamped as early as last week, according to series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, there's a fair chance the game has gotten into someone's hands.

Just not yours. Or mine.

We'll just have to wait until Sony nails down a new release date. Should be any day now.
