GT5’s Premium Cars Go “Beyond” PS3’s Capabilities

A few more interesting quotes have emerged from the GT5 article in the latest “PlayStation: The Official Magazine (UK)”. According to Kazunori Yamauchi, Polyphony Digital has essentially future-proofed the game’s 200+ “Premium Cars”:

“The level of precision we’ve achieved [in GT5] is actually more suited to the next generation of machines. The detail that goes into a premium model [has] gone beyond the level of the current PlayStation.”

This statement complements Yamauchi’s previous remarks about Gran Turismo 6 last November:

“You won’t have to wait as long as you did for GT5GT5 was basically the creation of a whole new operating system, and developing GT6 will be like adding new applications that run on that new operating system.”

However, since he made those comments, things may have changed according to more recent contradictory reports which hint GT6 may require another 5 years of development – something which would make sense if they now plan to release the game on the next generation of PlayStation hardware…
