GT5 looks “better than reality”

Polyphony Digital’s Kazunori Yamauchi has stated that Gran Turismo 5’s will look “better than reality.”

A bold statement, Yamauchi went on to say:

“In a way, it’s kind of a given that it’s going to look better than reality The thing about reality is that the criteria for looking ‘real’ are actually a lot stricter and volatile than you’d expect: the way the sun shines, reflects off something, the way it lights scenery – we seldom have the opportunity to see what we consider ‘reality’ under the best and most aesthetically pleasing conditions.”

Elaborating on his statement, Yamauchi stated that races depicted in video games are typically more aesthetically pleasing when compared to the real thing as broadcast on TV.

GT5 is due for release on the PlayStation 3 in Japan on 31 March 2010.
