If you don’t know already, Gran Turismo 5 (GT5) has been delayed once again. To fans and those looking forward to the game, this is old news. In fact, Polyphony Digital has delayed the release many times, reason being, they want to create the best possible experience. I can understand this, and quite frankly it’s a welcome approach, considering certain games that have been released recently.
Bad Company 2, Modern Warfare 2, Medal of Honor… All these games have one thing in common – they were released too early and they’re cookie cutter games. Generics. All of them have, when they were first released, had bugs that should have been fixed before release. Another thing they have in common – they made their projected release date. It seems that with any game being published by a large corporation such as EA or Activision, the developers are just trying to make the release date, instead of delivering a quality product.
Of course, I’m not asking for another Duke Nukem, though it’s unfair to say that, since the game isn’t even released yet. But I would rather wait for a quality release than something that’s released on time. So to Polyphony Digital, please try to ignore the upset fans, they’ll buy your game anyway, just make sure you deliver an excellent product.
