GT5’s just too kinky, apparently.

“Apologies for the delay,” creator Kazunori Yamauchi tweeted (as translated by Kotaku).

“It’s because time and labour were spent ironing the kinks out of [the game’s] complex system. I’m really sorry. Everyone, it’s inexcusable… Wait a little longer.”

“Inexcusable”? It’s just a short delay – not the end of the world. Gran Turismo fans, what have you been doing to this poor man? Wait a minute! Those bruises weren’t actually from the time he tripped down the stairs at a series of increasingly strange angles, were they?
