GT5 "clean and beautiful" but PS3 "still not enough" for Yamauchi

Polyphony Digital's Kaz Yamauchi, Gran Turismo series creator, has admitted that Sony's PS3 is still a "restriction" just like all the others before.

Software is at the mercy of hardware and while the "vessel has become bigger," it is "still not enough" for Yamauchi-san's Gran Turismo ambitions.

"Software has to be created under the restriction of the hardware," said studio boss Kaz Yamauchi. Gran Turismo 5 is still without an official release date despite the game having been submitted for disc manufacture.

"With each new PlayStation, the vessel has become bigger, but it's still not enough," he added. "With Gran Turismo 5 we've made it as clean and beautiful as possible within the confines of the space we're given - but of course there's a lot more that we want to put in."

The Matrix probably wouldn't be enough for Kaz Yamauchi. Gran Turismo 5 releases exclusively on the PS3 sometime before Christmas this year promise Sony.

Fortunately, for the PC as long as people have the hardware to play it, you can make as good looking as possible.

It's true that consoles are under the restriction of the hardware more than the computer but their lifespan it far greater, you spend money one time and thats it, it will last for at least 5 years, with the PC it's not that easy, first of all it's far more expensive (if you want a powerful machine for the new games), and second new hardware gets out everyday, so even if spend a lot in building the ultimate machine, in about 1 to 3 months it will be no longer the best, as for the consoles they will be the best until a new model gets out (slim models doesn't count)!

@ VHugoSama. I got a new computer for around $1500 in March 09, and it has not had any tourble playing any game I have got and thrown at it once. So if you spend like $2000 on a system you don't have an obsolete computer in 1-3 months. This one of mine will likely siut me for another 3-4 years.

Everson you are right and i never said that a PC would became obsolete in 3 months, i just said that it would no longer be the TOP machine, of course you can play well in it, I will give you an example: my own computer is going to make 1 year when i bought it I got an Radeon HD4890 graphic card (at the time it was the best from the Radeon family taking out the X2 series), since that short 1 year pass many other graphic cards were created, it's always evolving it's like the TV's, first all you wanted was HD, then Full HD, then Full HD LED, and now Full HD LED 3D.
In the end what I wanted to say it's that thinking about cost/benefit a console it's a better option since it is cheaper, and taking out Xbox they have a big lifespan (I still have my first console the Master System and it's still working, as for my first PC I don't even remember what happen to it).

I enjoyed GT on the first Playstation. Had a lot of fun, though on PC it looked better. Just handled better with the PS controller.
As for PC's. two years is the predicted, and well-documented lifespan of a reasonable system setup. Longer than that and you will undoubtedly see new features in the newer hardware, and the games themselves, that you cannot implement. I've had my basic rig for a little over four years now, updating the GPU four times and the CPU only once. It runs every game at the highest of graphiv settings, yet it's still only:
3 GB RAM
Radeon HD 4850 1GB
E8400 3.0GHz
P5K MoBo (bottom of the line)

However running Windows XP (DX 9) I cannot enable DX 11, and my card only supports DX 10 anyway.
If you look after your rig, keep drivers updated and don't succumb to o'clocking it's surprsing just how far you can push your beastie. I'll upgrade next year (fingers crossed nothing blows up till then).

I know what you mean Vhugo. My machine is not top of the line and never was anyway.

4 gb Ram alright for a computer
AmD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition 2.6 Ghz Pretty good
nVidia XfX GeForce 9800 GTX+ very good card, still I almost got a GTX 260.

Windows Xp.

The next computer that I get will be when Windows 8 comes out when ever that will be.

My other computer I got in 04 and updated the G card once. Played all sorts of games (Crysis, Gears of War. etc) albeit slugishly.
