Gran Turismo 5 'could be PS4 game'

Polyphony boss says title "goes beyond PS3"

There is hyperbole, and then there is confidence in the the most patiently-awaited game of the 21st Century.

Take your pick on which applies to Polyphony Digital boss Kaz Yamauchi, who told OPM in its splendid new issue:

"The level of precision we've achieved [in GT5] is actually more suited to the next generation of machines."

Wowsers. He didn't stop there, either. Referring to the 200 'premium' cars offered within the title, Yamauchi added:

"The detail that goes into a premium model [has] gone beyond the level of the current PlayStation."

Yep, you read that correctly. It's TOO MUCH FOR PS3.

To be fair, Yamauchi may have something of a point. OPM reports that 'GT5 accurately models mechanical and cosmetic damage to an absurd degree, and whilst the classic models will buckle and crumple, those newer models will near-disintegrate'.

If you're a racing fan, November 2 can't come soon enough.

Until then, check out OPM's spanking six-page GT5 preview in its latest issue, which hits stores this week.
