Sony's Gran Turismo movie will tell the story of how GT5 gamer Lucas Ordˇ˝ez became a real-life racing driver.
Why does Kazunori Yamauchi, creator of Gran Turismo, get special dispensation from Sony when he makes a game? Because each main Gran Turismo release has sold roughly 10 million copies - or more.
Sony has revealed that the Gran Turismo series has shipped over 50 million units on multiple PlayStation formats, GamesIndustry.biz reports.
Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi has said that a PC instalment in the hit racing series is something he'd consider doing in the future.
Kazunori Yamauchi is a man living the boy racer dream - or rather, he would be, if boy racers even dared to have this kind of dream. As the creator of what is arguably the world's most authentic, most comprehensive simulation of race driving, he lives and breathes cars and motorsport.
The latest incarnation to the most lavish driving simulation in the world is almost upon us, but the wait has been long. By the time it finally emerges in Europe in November it will hold the unwelcome record of being dogged by the most delays in the series, following on almost three and a half years from the mighty Gran Turismo 3 - the first must-have PS2 title that few have managed to better since.
