Gran Turismo 5 Development Spinning it’s Wheels


It was only a six months ago when Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi stated in an interview with USA Today that GT5 was 90% complete. Fast forward to May and it seems the game is still 90% complete.

Gran Turismo 5 is about 90 percent finished,” Kazunori-san told the automobile dedicated website, Inside Line  in an exclusive interview.

Yamauchi also goes on to say in the same interview that he doesn’t expect the game to release until it “satisfied everyone’s wishes and then exceeded them.”

I guess there can’t be much left to finish in the game if Yamauchi has time to complete a four-hour race in a Lexus IS-F at the Nurburgring Nordschleife as he prepares to participate in the Nurburgring 24 Hours race on May 15-16.

    lol, if he wants to satisfy everyone’s wishes and then exceed them, we’d have the game by now, since I’m sure the biggest wish would be for the games to be released faster :P

    Tried the time challenge version, didn’t like it. Looked great, but that’s about it.

    This is getting ridiculous. Release it already. I don’t condone the patch culture for half-finished games after release, but at least remember that it could be patched if there were a ground-breaking change.

    This doesn’t worry me at all. The game is going to be good maybe not great but it will have everything. I want and more. As long as they can get good smoke effects and good damage models then I am okay with it.

    They’ve also recently all been on holiday. Hard life these Polyphony guys have…
