Gran Turismo 5 is yet to be released, scheduled to debut in Japan on March 31 2010, yet series creator Kazunori Yamauchi has already revealed that the wait for its follow-up will not be nearly as long as the five years between GT4 and GT5.

"To make Gran Turismo 5 we threw away the legacy code from GT4 and started from scratch. It's been five years from [the release of] GT4, and that's the same amount of time it took to develop the first GT4. To create a game from scratch, that's the amount of time it takes to get it right," Yamauchi told autoweek.com.

Yamauchi added: "You won't have to wait as long as you did for GT5. GT5 represents a whole new operating system. GT6 is just new apps that run on the GT5 system."

Regarding the game's release outside of the Japan, Yamauchi revealed that it's Sony's marketing plans that will determine when the game is released in the West.

Clearly you don't play Arcade Racers very much. I have watched my mate setup a car on Forza 2 to racing specificaions I take the car as it comes. He beats me everytime.

Well I must be sh!t you say.

If we swap I win.

Now i'm just an average gamer but he's a telematrist for a pretty decent motorsport team, and he says Forza has the most relaistic handling. He's rich and has both systems and basically says GT used to have it all but Forza has surpassed it and for me you can't get better endorsement than that he didn't think much about GT5p either.

You may think i'm making this up but I'm sure Richard will confirm my case.

Oh and FYI i have Forza 2 and it felt like an arcade racer. I didn't like GT5P but hey guess what i am still expecting GT5 to be a heck load better than Forza 3.

Well Forza 3 does have more options such as the tuning and customisation(which I don't really like) but GT5p didn't have it at all.

I think GT still has the better handling out of the 2, Forza feels very safe and you never feel like you're going to lose it even when pushing it very hard, also the back button kinda kills some of the excitement. That's probably to make it more accessible though which is a good thing to some extents.

I think the system as a whole is not as good as Forza's both 2 and 3 gues thats my preference if GT5 comes out and it's amazing then that will be cool but at the moment your putting it on a pedistool.

Well I have played both and Forza 3 is better tbh.

Still waiting for Gran Turismo mind, mainly because of the track editor option.

Uhhh, ya think! It's a prologue, a demo in sense. Graphics aren't everything Karlius.

Only played forza 3 for a couple of hours at my brothers. It's pretty damn good. GT5p quite a bit. Used to play time trials with a mate. Good demo but was not ready was a bit wound up by the price too. GT5p isn't in the league of Forza3 more Forza2!

I liked forza, played well of what iv seen, Gt pro felt well like a prologue lol, it probably is not fair to compare the two, if Prologue was GT 5 how ever apart from things like visuals Forza would win I like all the features G force etc

How ever I cant wait for GT 5 i love that series and it is yet to disappoint

Though one flaw with Forza is the install on disk 2but that is just the DVD format showing its age.

In topic, I hope it is a lot quicker lol xD like many have said 5 years is a long time regardless of how epic it is lol

"Lets not forget how hard it must of been for the developers to get to grips with the new code."

Exactly! No point calling them monkeys seeing as it's not as if you can do what they do. So don't challenge their intelligence for taking longer for being more ambitious than the Forza Team.

How much time have you spent playing GT5p and Forza 3?

Not at all just hate how this game is getting placed on a pedistool when all we have really seen is a large demo that is nowhere near the calibur of Forza 3 and some screen shots. If anything you're giving the fanboy stance.

Clearly you didn't understand my point. I could write an essay for a week and be an Einstien on the subject you may take 3 months and be very good but that doesn't mean that because you speant more time on something it's better. Lets not forget how hard it must of been for the developers to get to grips with the new code.

Seems to be the in thing at the moment for PS3 game developers to start talking about the next instalment in the series even before the current game is released!

Ok that for one was uncalled for, not on my behalf but for the GT team. You clearly sound like a fanboy with this statement...clearly.

Pinning a lot of hope? Don't think so, i hate driving sims.
