Yamauchi explains GT5 delay, chalks it up to “ironing out kinks”

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?
