Yamauchi: GT5 Doesn't Currently Support 3D Or Move
Sony has recently said to expect Gran Turismo 5 to launch this fall; it's supposedly a "guarantee" that it won't slip out of 2010.
In the meantime, racing fans everywhere are inquiring after the cause of the significant delay. You may recall that it was initially expected to release in Japan in March, so to push it all the way to the end of the year is a big deal; we simulator aficionados simply want an explanation. And at first, we thought we had one: while the game is around "90% complete," Polyphony apparently wanted to add 3D technology and a nifty little GPS feature. But now, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has said that neither 3D nor PlayStation Move support is included in GT5...yet. According to an interview he gave PSM3 magazine and as cited by CVG, Yamauchi made the situation quite clear, although he didn't rule anything out:
"We're always attuned to new technologies. If there are display devices or peripherals that seem interesting, I'm sure we'll work to support them."
At this point, it's likely that the fans just want GT5, with or without the frills. The idea of 3D and Move support is just fine but if it causes another delay, the decision to include such technology won't go over very well. Here's hoping that GT5 will be ready to go this fall.
