Yamauchi: We could release Gran Turismo 5 any time we want

You could be playing Gran Turismo 5 right now. But you aren’t, because the man behind the wheel, Kazunori Yamauchi, is a total perfectionist.

“The scale of this title is just dizzying, so daily progress is slow, but it’s still going forward at a steady clip,” he told Famitsu (as translated by 1UP). “All the basic stuff is complete, but we’re trying to give everything that little bit extra at present.”

“We could release it any time we want, really, but I want to have that classic GT-style ‘did we really have to go this far?’ feel going. I want to go way beyond gamer expectations.”

Oh yeah? Well, we’re gamers, and we’re expecting the game to be released today. “Way beyond our expectations”? Sounds like you’re going to need a time machine. Gran Turismo 6. DeLorean. Confirmed.
