Kazunori Yamauchi is the creator and producer of the Gran Turismo racing games on Sony's PlayStation game consoles. The new game is launching soon, although Sony isn't saying exactly when. It has 16-player multiplayer, as well as mechanical and external car damage. The Polyphony Digital studio at Sony released Gran Turismo 5 Prologue a year ago to whet appetites for racing fans, but the real deal has been in the works for five years. Sony had the latest creation on display at its booth at the Consumer Electronics Show. Gamesbeat caught up with Yamauchi for a translated interview there.
