Microsoft's Phil Spencer has taken a cheeky pop at the repeated delays to the release of PS3 exclusive Gran Turismo 5.

As you'd expect, the Microsoft Game Studios boss is a big fan of Xbox 360's rival racing series. "I think Forza continues to define the racing genre," he told Eurogamer earlier this week.

"Especially from first-parties, given that it seems to be the only one that's shipped." Ooh burn. Chinese rather than third-degree though probably.

"It's the highest-reviewed racing game this generation," Spencer continued. "And it continues to include the community... I think we continue to push, as first-party, this line between shrink-wrapped games, Live and that social community experience."

For more from Spencer read the full interview, in which he uses the word "experience" 29 times.
