Yamauchi: PS3 restricted Gran Turismo 5

“It’s just not got the power, captain.”

Gran Turismo guru and Polyphony boss Kaz Yamauchi has said PS3 restricted him when it came to developing his latest game, Gran Turismo 5.

“Software has to be created under the restriction of the hardware,” he said to Esquire Magazine UK. “With each new PlayStation, the vessel has become bigger, but it’s still not enough.

“With Gran Turismo 5 we’ve made it as clean and beautiful as possible within the confines of the space we’re given – but of course there’s a lot more that we want to put in.”

Thankfully, according the man himself, Gran Turismo 5 has now gone gold, so any improvements he does want to make will just have to be left for Gran Turismo 6.

Gran Turismo 5 is still on for a release this year, although exactly when that will be has not yet been announced.
