In a Famitsu magazine interview with Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi, he revealed that they aren’t planning to include a DLC for the soon-to-be-released Gran Turismo Playstation Portable.
“We’re making the PSP Gran Turismo with the feeling of how would we make the first game in the series now, in 2009,” said Yamauchi. “So, we wanted to make the content fulfilling for those playing for the first time. And so, we made the composition of the software simple as well. We made it so it won’t tie in with the separate business of network downloads.”
But even without the DLC, Yamauchi guaranteed an 800-plus cars and 35 tracks with 60 layout variations… All that is expected to run at a full 60fps.
I have always been a sucker for car-racing games so I can’t wait until this one is released and I get to try it out for myself. I don’t think I will even notice that it comes without DLC, the 800-plus cars to choose from is blinding me from all defects that might come out once I purchased it.
The Gran Turismo for PSP is set for an October 1 release in the US.
