Codies: Gran Turismo 5 'could be accused' of being boring photo



It seems everybody's lining up to have a crack at Gran Turismo 5. Electronic Arts has said that the game was sterile compared to Need For Speed, and now that giant of the racing genre, Codemasters, has said that the PS3 exclusive can't compare to its F1 games.

"GT5 is going to be a phenomenal product, with the time and investment Sony have made in it," admits CEO Rod Cousens. "You can have a technically phenomenal game, but you can also have a game concept that doesn't really appeal [to some racing fans] and could be accused of -- and you have to be careful how you write this - of being boring. 

"We don't have that problem. We feel the adrenaline rush that we'll always provide in F1 will not be matched by anyone else. You're going to have all the cars, all the tracks and all the worldwide locations -- not to mention the best strategy, and the best damage, as far as we can. If you're an F1 fan, you don't need to go anywhere else for that."

Given how emotional and defensive people are getting over the game already, his comment is sure to spark some outrage. After all, we've already got people whining over some sites giving the game an 8.5 ... I dread to think how hard they're going to piss themselves when they see this.
