Default So is Gran Turismo going multi-platform?

I read something about it but haven't confirmed it? I thought maybe you guys would know?

Click Well this isn't what I originally read, but you get the idea

Quote:
SCEA marketing head John Koller has dropped a heavy hint that Gran Turismo’s future may not be limited to just PSP and PS3.

“[Polyphony Digital] report directly into our CEO, Kaz Hirai, so it’s a little bit of a ‘wait and see’,” the exec told VG247 when asked when we can expect to see GT5.

“But we look for that franchise to continue on as many platforms as possible.”

Koller said in the same interview, recorded at GDC, that Sony is currently looking at “GT5 across all platforms, just to see what makes the most sense.”

PC gamers may do well to get excited by the talk. Polyhony head Kazunori Yamauchi’s already said that “perhaps [GT5] comes to the PC,” talking specifically of a Chinese launch.

It doesn’t take the hugest leap of logic to guess Koller may be talking about a PC SKU here.

SCEA’s director of hardware marketing, John Koller, has told VG247 that Gran Turismo 5’s release timing across “all platforms” is still a matter of seeing “what makes the most sense.”

Koller was responding to questions about the game’s PS3 release date, speaking at GDC last week.

“Ultimately, they are a developer who makes a lot of their own decisions,” Koller said of Polyphony Digital.

“But we are looking at GT5 across all platforms, just to see what makes the most sense.”

Koller fobbed off specifics on launch dates for further games in the series.

“Well GT5: Prologue’s out,” he joked.

“Seriously though, there is really nothing we can really say about it, other than it’s a franchise we would like to continue.

“So, other than that, we don’t really have any announcements regarding the game at this time.”

Last December, SCEE’s John Armstrong told a Spanish television program that we could expect Gran Turismo 5 by Christmas 2009.

Announcements related to both a PSP and PS3 version of GT5 are expected at E3

No. Sony owns the IP.

I'm glad, because that would suck ass! Not that I'm not into sharing though, but there's things that shouldn't be shared. Like wives, and girlfriends, and Gran Turismo, you know =p

man, forgot the "n't" lol

Massive BS. Oh and I won't believe PD if they announce ANYTHING about GT5 releasing in 2009, or ANYTHING about GT:Mobile. I just don't see them going to PC at all, knowing how PC piracy is
