GT5 to set new standard, says Yamauchi-san

Gran Turismo head honcho Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed he is confident that the upcoming fifth instalment in the legendary racing franchise will set a new industry standard for the genre.

Chatting to the official PlayStation Blog at E3, Yamauchi commented: “We always set very high goals and ideal for our games,” adding, “The [E3] GT5 trailer that you saw is a very small portion of what we’re working on.”

“As long as we actually achieve our goals and fulfil our expectations I’m sure it would set the new industry standard.”

The short but sweet interview can be viewed below.

Gran Turismo 5 has yet to attract a release date, though Yamauchi has previously commented that a firm date will be announced ‘soon.’
