Kaz Yamauchi makes more apologies over Gran Turismo 5
Gran Turismo creator and head of Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi has been making more apologies over the long-delayed fifth entry in the series this time over the frame rate.
Yamauchi revealed to UK magazine PSM3 that although GT 5 runs in full 1080p in order to maintain that resolution the frame rate occasionally drops below 60fps.
The Polyphony Digital boss explained: "Our engineers complain every day: 'Isn't it enough that it's in 1080p? Does it have to be 60fps too?' But I think 60fps is very important, so we're working towards perfecting that."
He continued: "There might be times when you have a certain combination of conditions that come together - especially with the weather effects - [when] the game might briefly drop from 60fps, and for that I beg your forgiveness! If you're going from a standing start at No.16 and all 15 cars in front of you are kicking up water, there might not be 60fps at that moment."
