There may be a hint of sensationalist link-baiting in VG247’s latest headline about Gran Turismo 5 – indeed, you can’t help but wonder why they didn’t mention these comments by SCEA Director of Hardware Marketing John Koller in their article last month. Regardless, his additional comments reinforce the important notion that the GT series is coming to platforms other than the PS3:
“[Polyphony Digital] report directly into our CEO, Kaz Hirai, so it’s a little bit of a ‘wait and see’,” the exec told VG247 when asked when we can expect to see GT5.
“But we look for that franchise to continue on as many platforms as possible.”
You won’t see GTPlanet jumping to any rediculous conclusions about a PC (or Xbox, ha!) release, but Mr. Koller’s broad choice of words there is still raising a few eyebrows. E3 2009 may be even more interesting than we originally thought…
