CC: Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi has hit out at driving games released since Gran Turismo 4 in 2004, saying that the 'low level of quality really shines through'.
He's a pretty picky guy isn't he? edit: I woulnd't mind seeing Forza's level of vehicle customisation in GT5 TBH.
I think anyone can play Forza 3 for more than an hour at the time. Its brilliant. I don't see that any of the racing simulators released recently (Forza 3, Need for Speed: Shift etc.) have low quality. After all, they sold brilliantly.
Quality and sales don't go hand in hand. Shift definitely wasn't quality, the thing was pretty broken from what I played.
True that. Sales aren't exactly representative of quality just popularity.
When this guys speaks you listen and u agree and thats it.A true master of his domain.A perfectionist in every sense.
...it wasn't quoting from Eurogamer. At any rate, can anyone get the direct link to work? It's probably a url thing, but when I paste the link, I can't get the original page to come up: http://www.eurogamer.dk/art...
"Quality and sales don't go hand in hand" Gran Turismo Franchise Is The Exception of The RULE GT5: The Perfect Driving Simulator Gamers FTW!!!
But deh sony developerz neva talks bad abowt duh compitition! Yeah right.
Blimey games,simbian studios, codemasters and slightly mad studios do to deserve such an insult?.
as far as you work for Sony that is.
Someone seems to like the smell of his own fart.
He's working on a game five years in the making; These guys are chucking out games every year! When you pay $60 for GT5, it's gonna feel better than when you do it for those other games! There's so much more for $60 there.
"Actually I find it difficult to play the other games in more than five minutes at a time. The game's low level of quality really shines through in the other games and I can not hold them out!" Thats the quote from Yamauchi when asked whether he may implement features from different games in future Gran Turismo games. Take that as you want, but guy has high standards and is just saying what he thinks about already released games. Douche? perhaps.
They sorta deserve it, the jap devs never talk sh*t bout western devs, western ones would rather be bumrap*d than be seen taking notes from competitors , Forza 3 was quality, even though it won't be as good as GT5 it would be the best if Gt didn't exist. Shift was not a simulator.
Seeing how long it's taking him to release GT5, it better be perfect.
"Kazunori Yamauchi: The last is actually exactly what we do. We skeleton not to other games while we develop Gran Turismo - it is solely based on what we want to achieve with the game. In fact, I find it hard to play the other games in more than five minutes at a time. Previews low level of quality really shines through in the other games and I can not keep them out!" I am not an English major, but these part "We skeleton not to other games while we develop Gran Turismo", "play the other games in more than five minutes at a time" and "Previews low level of quality really shines through in the other games and I can not keep them out." I can tell was badly translate.
All he said was that other racers are crap compared to Gran Turismo 4 and that they've brought nothing to the table since. It's not like he said GT5 "is the definitive racer", that would have been REALLY dramatic. /s
I speak danish. The translation overall is kind of shifty, yeah, but the part in which he acts like a douche is pretty accurate. He's asked wheather or not GT is developed "in a form of vacuum, where competitors are ignored". He responds that they develop games without glancing at other games, the end product is based solely on their own goals and vision (which is retarded, and obviously a lie, any dev saying this is clearly lying). Then: "Actually I find it difficult to play the other games more than five minutes at a time. The low level of quality really shines through in the other games and I can't stand them!" Guess he got tired of the Turn 10 devs, good for him. Remember, I translated from danish to english, not japanese to english. Some danish dude did that, and danes can't be trusted. va? Racing sims suck ass btw, I don't care about this little battle, bye.
Thanks. When he said "Actually I find it difficult to play the other games more than five minutes at a time. The low level of quality really shines through in the other games and I can't stand them!" Couldn't he be referring to the games he play personally? those games doesn't necessary mean racing games, but games in general. For all we know, the game he might be referring to is Dynasty Warriors or something.
Really? Why is it that they are adding damage to their cars then. Surly thats one feature that the competitors have that they want in their game too. Im sure GT 5 will be great but I wish hed just get it done already and let us decide. Also I found it interesting considering they went and not only playued forza 3 at E3 but "TOOK NOTES" on it. LOL. http://www.pushsquare.com/3... http://gamingconsolenetwork...
Yamauchi, please. Don't do a Turn 10. :/
No, he makes a point of directing himself towards GT's competitors, which I can only assume are racing games. Makes sense, no? Eurogamer.dk makes a big a deal of this, it's a focal point in the article. Far more interesting for those of you who are interested in all things GT, is that he says that there will be a major update to GT5 Prologue before GT5 proper is finished in the same article. "Kazunori Yamauchi: Der vil komme yderligere en større opdatering til Gran Turismo 5 Prologue før det fulde spil er færdigudviklet."
I don't think he said it like that, and if so, this article is doing a great injustice and using the spin-machine to generate nonsense.
After all the pushing "Just Turned 10" did, you didn't expect a push back?
Uhm, looks like loads of comments are being made just from reading the misleading and highly sensational headline instead of reading the actual article.
..what do you expect the competition to say, if true? This is just PR everyone has their own direction on how to come about it, but it's just business. Then again I'm not surprised that people are upset, it is a Sony developer; otherwise people wouldn't have cared. It's well known that western developers have that mentality, what makes it different used against them? Microsoft has Ninja Blade people think it's cool, Sony has Heavy Rain people say it isn't a game. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
He's not a douche, and do you know why? Because he knows, that GT5 is in another league. Damn i know Yamauchi, and if this man says, that other games are crap in comparsion to GT5, you just must believe him!. HE already knows, that his game is much better. Otherwise he would never say such things.. So for me as a GT fan: really good news! :-)
Both Turn 10 & PD have bad-mouthed the competition. Now, it's time to put their money where their mouth is. Turn 10 backed up it's arrogance with Forza 3, the highest rated driving sim since 2001. Millions of driving sim enthusiasts and hundreds of reviewers & journalists would disagree that Forza is "low quality". Let's see what PD can do when GT finally comes out. If PD considers a 92 rating to be "low" quality, they better average at least a 98 for GT5 to back up their trash talk.
GT5 will blow the competition away.. Without a doupt, Yamauch is a f*cking perfectionist, and he will release an extremely polished game, with unbelievable features. You will see...
them there is fighting words... i like that, Yamauchi says it as it is. he has confidence in his product.
Yamauchi Hits Out At Gran Turismo Competitors ??? like who? forza?? NFS? haaaaa yeah fking right. GT5 dont have competition
Tisk tisk. Don't sink to Turd 10's level.
He just sank lower.Nothing Turn 10 said was this disrespectful.
We don't know how low he's sunk, to be honest as that quote could be in ANY context and the translation of it doesn't really make much sense either. If we see the full interview and it turns out he does mean EVERY single game released in the genre since the last GT then, yeah, it's a really bad statement but as he's been complimentary about Forza in the past I'm tempted not to think there's very much in this one. For instancce, he could have been asked " What about the way the need for Speed games went so badly downhill" and then the rest of the question. If he was meaning every single racing game then he's out of line just as badly as Greenawalt but still not as low as T10 as a whole seeing as they're more than one person and there was a concerted policy of rubbish statements and poll rigging from them! Still, just as I won't buy Forza3 until I see T10 and Greenawalt grow some humility I won't be keen on getting GT5 if it turns out Yam is being badly arrogant-whether T10 lit the first match is irrelevant as bad behaviour is bad behaviour and gamers don't need poor examples to act like tools these days. However, I very much doubt he'd say something quite so sweeping and/or disparaging and need to hear the interview, read a good transcript or find a full, good quality english translation as one quote with nothing to anchor it to is a typical, almost cliched, journalistic tool for making peple look however the publication wants.Surely, had they a full Yamauchi interview, also,m they'd have made certain we saw a little more than one semi sensical quote, wouldn't they? Also, it would be very out of character from what I've ever seen or read about the guy too.
