3 Weeks For Gran Turismo HD Demo

Polyphony Digital's Kazunori Yamauchi explains the pressures on ensuring Gran Turismo made a PS3 appearance at E3'06...Polyphony Digital's Kazunori Yamauchi has recently gone on the record to explain some of the reasons behind the decision to display Gran Turismo HD at E3'06. Assuring GT fans that what was shown is not indicative of how Gran Turismo will really shape up on the Playstation3, Yamauchi-san explained to Famitsu that he was asked for a personal meeting with Sony Computer Entertainment president, Ken Kutaragi.

Fearing what could happen, Yamauchi-san was asked whether he would be able to have a Gran Turismo demo ready for E3, three weeks prior to the event. Resigned to the fact that he would need to have SCE's premier series ready for E3 in some shape or form, the staff members at Polyphony Digital set to work on the High-Resolution car models that were used in the Gran Turismo 4 Photo Mode, and came up with the presentation in just three weeks of work.

There is an article here about screenshots and the real life photos of places in the city. Most everyone guessed the PGR3 svreens to be real life, and the real photos to be in-game.

But really who has time to look at the scenery at 175mph?

BECAUSE NO ONE HAS ONE! Besides, PGR3 was a fun game even though it looked last gen, it has nothing to do with the power of the 360, it has to do with the game creators.

PGR3 looked really nice in HD, if you gave it a try you would know. Atleast download the demo and give it a shot

The screens look good. This will be like the PGR3 for the ps3 on launch. Why are the screens so dark? It looks like they shot the screens at night!! The ps3 screens have yet to look like what the 360 screens look like!! Forza 2 looks way better than this. The PS3 wasn't worth the wait I am glad I didn't wait!

this article shows what kind of mind set sony is in.
they are scrambling to keep the sony fans amused until the release of the PS3.
they had plenty of stuff to show a E3, this was not really necessary. but it did help fill in time for their presentation.

I saw an interview about e3 and Sony. And this guy said a lot of people were yawning and bored of this magnificent 1080p super extraordinary fantastic demo. There's your first look at 1080p, and the crowd yawns.

well it went on for hours did it not? i would be yawning too.
what where they thinking. i guess it was to take up time where they had nothing else to show.
