Gran Turismo PSP still in development

Gran Turismo PSP still in development

It may have suffered repeated delays, Sony assures fans that Gran Turismo PSP is still coming.

Gran Turismo for the PSP may have been one of the first games announced for the platform, but the massively successful racing simulation still hasn't materialised and there have been constant rumours of delays and cancellation in the years since the announcement was first made.

Not true though, says Sony, who confirmed that Gran Turismo PSP is still planned to make an eventual debut.

Speaking to Eurogamer at the Tokyo Game Show, Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida commented on the future of the game and whether or not Polyphony Digital would ever release the game.

"Good question! It's in Polyphony Digital, they're working on it," said Yoshida, cagily.

"They have been working on Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and Gran Turismo 5 for PS3, so they've had to focus on finishing up Gran Turismo on the PS3 side," he explained. "That's been making the PSP development a little bit slow."

Yoshida wouldn't offer any further comment on the title however, not even confirming whether it would come out at all next year. Neither would he comment on the fate of Team ICO's next title.

Would you be interested in playing Gran Turismo on the PSP, or do you find it unwieldy and uncomfortable to use like some of us? Let us know your thoughts in the forums.

I don't find the PSP to be unwieldy or uncomfortable, but I do find it a pain in general to play a game that requires any kind of precision on a portable. Ridge Racer was suited extremely well to the PSP, but I'm not so sure that GT will be.

No, unless your trying to use your feet to play with it? I play Toca on it alot and F1 and not had a problem. You hold it like any normal control pad.

I wouldnt mind a GT on it, but id have to see it first and it would have to be better than Toca to win me over.
