I am very completely happy to have fun our twenty fifth anniversary for the reason that Gran Turismo collection debuted.
Gran Turismo in 1992 was the primary venture plan I created out of the near 100 tasks I discovered once I first began my profession on this business, so it means rather a lot to me.
Whereas making video video games is one thing I began as a pastime on the age of 10, I by no means considered making it a profession.
Once I was 14, I began a filmmaking membership and was capturing motion pictures, so I first joined Sony in hopes of making show merchandise. However the division they assigned me was not what I anticipated.
This was a division the place the PlayStation console was simply getting began and the place Kutaragi-san was working feverishly to deliver the PlayStation idea to life.
It wasn’t the place I had hoped for, however wanting again now, you’ll be able to say I used to be very fortunate.
I used to be fascinated by the real-time 3D graphics many have come to count on, and I’ve created and introduced plans for every type of video video games, not simply racing video games, however RPGs, journey video games, motion video games, puzzle video games, and extra.
Because of this Gran Turismo was first confirmed for PlayStation, taking a extra fantasy racing sport format within the “Motor Toon Grand Prix”, there is a good likelihood I am making a sport outdoors of Gran Turismo right now.
After that, the Gran Turismo venture began as a crew of two part-time artists and three engineers got here collectively.
From there, the variety of comrades continued to develop for greater than 1 / 4 of a century and have become Polyphony Digital, an organization with greater than 200 staff right now.
I do not assume there are numerous online game collection on the planet which have been occurring with the identical identify and identical crew for 25 years.
The founding members of the corporate are nonetheless on the entrance strains, and I’m grateful and proud that each one of our 200 staff are a crew with the identical motivation and love that the corporate had at its begin.
Within the final 25 years, the cumulative gross sales complete of the collection has exceeded 90 million as of November 16, 2022.
And this result’s one which we can’t obtain alone.
Behind this determine of 90 million are all media individuals who carry the attraction of Gran Turismo to their readers. There are PlayStation staff all over the world who passionately promote GT for us, and there may be an unimaginable quantity of help from retailers who interface with our customers.
My honest because of all of them for his or her help.
And above all, I am unable to thank the GT customers and the individuals within the GT group sufficient for taking part in our new video games, which at occasions will be stated to be very experimental.
We’re right here right now because of all of the individuals who supported us.
I consider that the Gran Turismo collection is all the time after the “Lovely”. The fantastic thing about the vehicles, the great thing about the surroundings, the great thing about the lighting, the great thing about the driving, the great thing about the sounds/music and the great thing about the graphics.
“The pursuit of magnificence” is the motivation for creating Gran Turismo.
We now have a brand new willpower to maintain transferring ahead into the long run with a robust sense of objective.
Thanks for all of your help over the previous 25 years. Thanks.
