Gran Turismo PSP is coming out. That's nice. Where the heck is Gran Turismo 5? And no, Grand Turismo 5 Prologue does not count.
According to Gran Turismo honcho Kazunori Yamauchi, "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."
No doubt that they're making everything just so. But still, the gestation period for this title has been on the long side. Then again, pumping out high quality driving simulators is hard.
The game was first shown at E3 2006, and Yamauchi and his team at Polyphony Digital have apparently been working on the game since then or before then. And now it's E3 2009. Time flies!
