We could release GT5 any time, says Yamauchi

Thursday, 4th June 2009 11:59 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Kazunori Yamauchi has told Eurogamer that GT5 is “at a point we can release it any time we want”.

“I want to release it as fast as I can,” the developer said, talking at E3 this week, “but GT5 for us, when you talk about its status, it’s at a point we can release it any time we want, but we can always keep working on it. It’s very important for us to make sure everything is done perfectly and everything is done in detail.”

First trailer here. The game was shown for the first time in Sony’s E3 conference this week.

    …and we haven’t even started on that crash deformations shit yet. WRC runs on city race tracks right ?” said Kazunori Yamauchi

    @DS1086: Do you really buy that? That the game is going to be perfect when it’s released?

    I read that as ‘We could, but you chumps just want to keep on giving us money for demos. See you in the Spring with GT 5 Prologue IV.’

    @Suikoden Fan – If you’re going to try to patronise people it would be better if you got it right yourself.

    Are you really claiming to be a language art form or did you mean your question was rhetorical. Like this one.

    Nah, don’t want that. We’re developing a game for the love of developing games, and if people are willing to buy it now, we’re not bothered.

    Sony have enough money, don’t ya know…

    Best bet is to forget about it till it pops up on the shelf in GAME and enjoy Forza 3 in the meantime.(well from Oct)

    yea how is that arcade gaming coming along, I only play real racing games and consoles are powerful enough to have “real racing sim’. alos cosoles don’t have the right control for me.

    That’s amazing. It’s also $50,000.

    bdh is becoming a bit of a legend for me.
    He never fails to raise a smile on my face every time I read one of his posts.

    #14 6 years ago

    Oh dear, guess console’s aren’t so bad after all!

    #15 6 years ago

    “You seen this bdh?”

    yea that controler is a joke, just like car games on console is a joke. I would rather get need for shift than arcade racing games for consoles. I am sure those car games have so real phyisics running under that hood lol.

    I agree! In fact, I had my real car converted to use WSAD buttons for driving.

    I don’t use a pad or key borad frankly they suck at drving games. I use real car game controlers only found on the pc.

    here is some link for exmpale.

    no compare that to your weak console controller

    please consoles are a joke compare to pc, come agin when you have so real had facts.

    Oh PC overlord, do tell us the difference, other than the fact the Motion Pro 2 doesn’t actually look like it’s finished being built.

    well if it’s made for consoles it’s going to be old tech. I would rather have a maxed out pc racer with state of the art cutting edge AI,graphics and phyisics. I want a real reacing games not a joke acarde game. I guess that is the diffeence between console gamers and pc gamers. Pc gamers want the “best games” while console gamers will take any thing.

    @ tenthousandgothsonacid seems my wit was lost on you, it was rhetoric and meant to be ironic , and where did i claim to be a language art form? go away and stop putting words in peoples mouths.

    You said “I was being rhetoric”. Rhetoric is a language art form. You *meant* I was being rhetorical.

    Shall I draw you a diagram ?

    why bother having an argument over something so pointless? which most people wouldn’t even care about.

    #30 6 years ago
  31. tenthousandgothsonacid

    Nice defence lol

    #31 6 years ago
  32. Suikoden Fan

    no defense, just an odd thing to have an argument about if i’m honest.

    #32 6 years ago

    You picked on someone else over a language issue and got it wrong. That’s why I’m picking on you.

    #33 6 years ago
  34. Suikoden Fan

    When did i pick on anyone? i came into this thread just to say ‘then why don’t you?’, that line isn’t picking on anyone, especially since it was aimed at being ironic.
    No i was the one getting ‘picked on’ here if anyone was.
