I bet when you read that title you thought it was going to Microsoft's Xbox 360 console - didn't you? HA! Well, Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi told Eurogamer that he "doesn't know" if the next-gen Gran Turismo title will be on the PlayStation 3 of the next-gen of console hardware.


He went on to say "10 years ago it was easier to predict what would happen three years in the future," he said in an exclusive interview at the official GT5 launch event in Madrid. "Nowadays no-one knows what happens in the future. In three years, we don't know what will happen."

With the release of the game happening in the last 24 hours - Yamauchi also responded to the criticism of GT5's online feature set - saying "Online updates are planned of course for leaderboards and matchmaking - [they're] all planned in the process of evolution."

There was also a stage presentation earlier in the evening where he said that his team would be "upgrading every week, every month" to improve the game. He also described the game as a "pet" that his team had "nourished and looked after" - while paying special tribute to GT fans "all of whom have helped and supported us to develop Gran Turismo."

Interestingly, beneath a video screen slogan which read: "Today is not the finale. Today is only the beginning of a new era for Gran Turismo," the series creator insisted that his team's work on the project was far from complete.

With a 10 year cycle for current consoles, another 5 years or more in development might as well be spent on next-gen, will we finally see an AAA+ game as a launch title?
