Anybody who has ever played Gran Turismo owes a lot of debt of gratitude to creator Kazunori Yamauchi, the architect behind the game’s birth and breath-taking fifteen-year evolution. Now you have a chance to do so by watching the full-length video of the Gran Turismo documentary “Kaz: Pushing the Virtual Divide”.

Last year, Gran Turismo announced the documentary as an inside look at the evolution of Gran Turismo from the eyes of the man who made it all possible. It traces Yamauchi’s incredible desire to create a car racing game that will put all others before it to shame. 15 years later, we’re still saying the same thing about Gran Turismo and its incredible advancements in video game technology.

Thanks to the support of Sony, Yamauchi was able to realize his objective and in so doing, the man was able to change the landscape of the gaming and automotive industries now and in the future.

The documentary is almost 90 minutes long so prepare to spend a lot of time to watch it. So prepare the popcorn and find yourself a comfortable couch to sit on. Rest assured, it’s worth every minute if you’re a fan of the Gran Turismo franchise.

He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
