Yamauchi: Gran Turismo 5 is 90 percent complete

Gran Turismo 5 has almost raced to its finishing development stages. According to series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, the game is just about ninety percent complete, which may be a reason for the game’s recent delay in Japan.

Speaking with USA Today at the Consumer Electronics Show, Yamauchi told the site: “About 90% of the game is done. We are just working on the last 10% and polishing up everything.”

Yamauchi also expressed his opinion the CES-boasted 3D technology and PlayStation 3’s upcoming motion controller.

“For 3D, I think our level of expression in that technology is not really complete yet. We still have a lot of work in development that has to poured into that field.

“As for motion control it is a brand new user interface. It really has infinite possibilities, of course, for the game industry and other industries. There is still a lot more development that needs to go into it but it’s a major possibility right now.”

What about motion control in Gran Turismo 5?

“It might be used to maybe control the user interface like you would a mouse, but that the extent we would use it for.”
