Forums - Sony Discussion - Koller : Gran Turismo 5’s release timing depends on “what makes sense"

GDC: Gran Turismo 5’s “all platforms” release timing will depend on “what makes the most sense,” says Koller

SCEA’s director of hardware marketing, John Koller, has told VG247 that Gran Turismo 5’s release timing across “all platforms” is still a matter of seeing “what makes the most sense.”

Koller was responding to questions about the game’s PS3 release date, speaking at GDC last week.

“Ultimately, they are a developer who makes a lot of their own decisions,” Koller said of Polyphony Digital.

“But we are looking at GT5 across all platforms, just to see what makes the most sense.”

Koller fobbed off specifics on launch dates for further games in the series.

“Well GT5: Prologue’s out,” he joked.

“Seriously though, there is really nothing we can really say about it, other than it’s a franchise we would like to continue.

“So, other than that, we don’t really have any announcements regarding the game at this time.”

Last December, SCEE’s John Armstrong told a Spanish television program that we could expect Gran Turismo 5 by Christmas 2009.

Announcements related to both a PSP and PS3 version of GT5 are expected at E3.

What is he going on about

Why does he need to speak in a cryptic code kind of way!



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

He may have been asked a question he didn't prepare for.



A game I'm developing with some friends:

It is largely a technical exercise but feedback is appreciated.

“So, other than that, we don’t really have any announcements regarding the game at this time.”


Other than what? Where's the info?
Teasing is getting boring.

I don't think he was prepared for that question, since he basically revealed the PSP version...



All platforms?

GT coming to 360, confirmed!

Yes, I know it's first party. It was a joke -.-

So PSP version is confirmed, then?

I think they wanna launch the PSP and PS3 version of GT5 at the same time. It wouldn't even surprise me if they launch a PS3+PSP+GT5+GT5portable lol



Maybe he meant a WW simultaneous release?



Yeah, what tremble said. Would be one hell of a simultaneous lunch.
