Kazunori Yamauchi talks to Esquire magazine's Henry Farrar-Hockley about creating Gran Turismo 5, the ultimate driving game.
Good interview, nothing said about the release date, but still Its good to hear what Mr. Yamauchi feels about his product.
I just want to play this game already!!! But yh good interview...
The latest GT outing, released this month, will be the biggest yet. “I think people will feel like they’re taking on the unknown,” Yamauchi says. “It won’t be just about the graphics or the physics - I think they’re going to have an experience in which they see the true potential of this thing they’re playing with.” When was this written? It says the latest GT outing released this month. EDIT: Never mind it says at the end that the article will run in December, so GT5 in December then?
They mention it near the end of the article. We're definitely getting the game by Christmas. (2010, for those who want to be smartasses and say 2011)
If this game is not perfect, and in the need of any patches in the first 4 months, it might be considered a bust by some fans. I hope this game is perfect, but he should have at least gave fans a beta to let us test some of the bugs out.
prologue might have been the beta
lol..naw. But after reading this interview I respect his drive for prefection. I will be patiently waiting for his creation.
Trust me, if Fallout isn't a bust, then Gran Turismo will NEVER be considered a bust by fans, only fanboys on the dark side.
I wouldn't mind it actually. Anything that could benefit the game in any way would be much appreciated.
Beta? They've been kiosking it pretty much everywhere for the past year, I'm pretty sure that's been enough to test the bugs. Plus, patches can take care of everything these days. And I don't know what a beta would be testing, the game is too huge. It's like having a beta for an open-world RPG, it just doesn't make any sense. The only thing a beta would be good for is online play *shudders at the thought of Prologue*.
Kazunori team haves years of experience and they also have a team of testers,this man is nothing more than a pro on his work,so no beta needed!
"*This article appears in the December issue of Esquire Magazine.
*Gran Turismo 5 (Sony/Polyphony Digital) is out in December on PS3. "
is such a down to earth humble man. No wonder he is such a respected man world wide.
Mr. Yamauchi has pretty much dedicated most of his life so far to producing the best driving game he could. For that he has my eternal respect and patience. I've realized that we are now in a world where a delay can make or break a company or product which I believe is wrong. Isn't the quality of the product more important than meeting preset dates for release? We are basically saying it's okay to release sub-standard stuff on time rather than quality stuff later. As much as I hate the delay, I am understanding that we might actually have someone here (Mr. Yamauchi) who has something else higher on his list other than the pursuit of wealth (Money!). He loves what he does! I can't wait to see what his greatest development yet has in store for us!
if i were him i wouldn't tell the people about GT5 until i almost finish the game but he's brave :) he's smart and i respect what he do and what he is .... but most of people here saying bad things about him and about his game , if you can't wait go and play other game but don't say bad things about him ... i can't wait to play the best game in this gen consoles next month :)
