E3 2008: Gran Turismo PSP in Development; No Gran Turismo 5 Before 2010?

The title of this story sure is a mixed bag for Gran Turismo fans. Joystiq got to speak with the father of Gran Turismo, Kazunori Yamauchi, and he revealed that Polyphony Digital is focusing on Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. He suggested that the proper version of Gran Turismo 5 might not be released before 2010, which somehow wouldn’t surprise me in the least.

Prologue should continue to see significant support, with new cars, tracks, and features. So there’s at least some consolation for GT fans.

But that’s not all — Yamauchi confirmed that Gran Turismo for PSP is still in development, although you shouldn’t expect that until after Gran Turismo 5 is released. So, yeah, it might be a while.

Ahahahahaha. 2010. I just don’t understand. How long has GT5 been in production? Since the PSOne?

What’s not to understand? It’s a huge game, and I for one would rather a realistic date rather than the usual delays and endless let downs on release dates. It might be a long time until GT5, but at least we’ll be getting updates to GT5:P

Yes…it may be a huge game…but seriously. Its amusing how long its going to take the Sony fanboys to get all of the “awesome” exclusives they’ve been touting for so long.
