When he isn't busy winning auto races over in Germany, Polyphony Studio head Kazunori Yamauchi spends his days polishing up Gran Turismo 5, his team's latest auto-sim magnum opus.
"Naturally, my attention is focused purely on Gran Turismo 5 right now," he told Famitsu magazine in an interview published this week. "The scale of this title is just dizzying, so daily progress is slow, but it's still going forward at a steady clip. All the basic stuff is complete, but we're trying to give everything that little bit extra at present. We could release it any time we want, really, but I want to have that classic GT-style 'did we really have to go this far?' feel going. I want to go way beyond gamer expectations."
