It’s been a while since we last gave an update on the unicorn of all video games, Gran Turismo 5. After a growing number of delays that rival that of a false-starting race car, Kazunori Yamauchi - the man behind the game - has finally given us an idea regarding the state of the fifth installment of the Gran Turismo franchise.
"Gran Turismo 5 is about 90 percent finished," Yamauchi said in an interview with Inside Line.
We really don’t know what to make of this considering that Yamauchi has consistently blown smoke up our posteriors in the past with all the release dates and subsequent delays of the highly-touted racing game.
Yamauchi said that the delays came as a result of the game still being in the developmental stage and said that developers can’t release it until it "satisfied everyone’s wishes and then exceeded them."
That’s all well and good Mr. Yamauchi, but we sure would like it if you - or your people - cut back on announcing the new release dates you’ve been suggesting in the past. By our last count, each and every one of those dates have already passed and there are still no signs of GT5 anywhere we look.
Here’s to hoping that the next time a date is announced, it ends up being the real deal.
