Gran Turismo 5 Surpasses Polyphony Digital’s Expectations
If you’ve purchased a copy of Gran Turismo 5 this week then count yourself as one of over 500k gamers who have done the same.
GT5 has only been available worldwide for less than five days but the game has quickly surpassed Polyphony Digital’s expectations; so much that online servers for the game are buckling under the pressure .
“The data centre was set up to handle 500,000 connections but the number of connections we received greatly exceeded that amount and there was a high chance of experiencing problems as a result.”Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi told Eurogamer.
We received a lot of demands for having more regulations placed on the online play. We’re going to perform an update on the 27th that will include things like max power restrictions and weight restrictions.”
Polyphony Digital also plans to release more patches and updates for the game on the 28th and sometime in in December. Expect a full PS3Blog review of GT5 soon.
