One of Gran Turismo 5's more hardcore features is the game's "B-Spec" mode, which lets you manage a car race instead of driving one. Soon, this feature will be coming to a PC (or Mac!) near you.
Since all you're doing in B-Spec mode is issuing basic commands like "enter the pits" or "overtake that guy", you don't really need the power of a PS3 to get things done. And since some of the races in B-Spec mode can go forever, it's a big ask to have you sitting in front of a console the entire time instead of doing something more productive.
To that end, Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has said that the ability to monitor a B-Spec race from a web browser will be implemented in the game "early next year", and that he's "sorry to keep you waiting".
It's not the first time Yamauchi has taken to Twitter to promise new or improved features for the game, and it probably won't be the last, either.
