Kikizo: GT5 - Kazunori Yamauchi Interview - Whats in Store for GT 5 - Weather effects, improving resolution & framerates

Yamauchi tells Kikizo how the London bombings almost disrupted development on the game and what keeps him motivated after all these years.

Kazunori Yamauchi has a lot to be happy about. The Polyphony Digital boss's new game, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, has just been named the fastest-selling PlayStation 3 game ever in the UK, and he and his army of car nuts are already working on the full game, due sometime next year

But for this affable motorsport junkie, creating racing games is about more than just games. It affords him a chance to stream his passion into the unstoppable forward flow of technology.

weather effects? If GT gets weather effects and damage, it will be completely unfair for other racers out there

I loved this part

"Kikizo: I'm being told to finish up, so I've got one more question for you. GT5: you've got 1080p, you've got 60 frames per second - what's next?

Yamauchi: That's an early question. [Laughs] First, while working at this resolution and this frame rate, we'd like to try to get weather and a lot of lighting effects added to the game."

This game is going to be awesome xD
