GT Creator Claims “We Could Release Gran Turismo 5 Now”


Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi was recently quoted during an E3 interview, stating that Polyphony Digital could release Gran Turismo 5 “any time”.

“I want to release it as fast as I can, but GT5 for us, when you talk about its status, it’s at a point we can release it any time we want, but we can always keep working on it. It’s very important for us to make sure everything is done perfectly and everything is done in detail.”

Kazunori went on to talk about the possibility of interconnectivity between the PSP Gran Turismo and Gran Turismo 5, for the PS3. Also, he estimates the PSP Gran Turismo download will run around 1 gigabyte.

“We’re hoping maybe to make it so you can share the garage with the PSP version so that cars you unlock on PSP will be available immediately on GT5.”

The E3 Gran Turismo 5 trailer wowed audiences. If Kazunori and the Polyphony Digital team want to continue polishing this game, how awesome will the final product become? Post your thoughts and feelings in the comments section.
