January 17, 2010 Written by Zak Islam

Gran Turismo 5’s recent delay in Japan, which would lead one to think a western release delay in the offing as well has sparked speculation on why the racer got delayed. Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi explains the reasons behind the delay.

Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed in an interview with USA Today that “About 90% of the game is done. We are just working on the last 10% and polishing up everything.” This explains why the racer recently received a red light.

When asked if Gran Turismo 5 will be using motion control at all:

It might be used to maybe control the user interface like you would a mouse, but that’s the extent we would use it for.
