The creator of Gran Turismo, Kaz Yamauchi has come out and stated that the Xbox 360 Forza Motorsport 2 is way ahead of Gran Turismo in terms of feature sets it offers to its users.
Polyphony Digita's Kaz Yamauchi stated that the two companies do things very different in regards to how they approach the development of the game.
He believes though that Gran Turismo is still the superior product as Forza has a lot of substance but not all of it is quality, where Gran Turismo is pure quality gold.
He stated that when asked about his opinion of Forza Motorsport 2 on the Xbox 360, "Straight off the bat, I think that in terms of feature sets, Forza is ahead of us. They have more options, you can do basically anything. We take a different approach obviously - we try to concentrate on what are the core values for a racing game, and we try to elevate those standards up as high as we possibly can. I am having difficulty trying to explain the differences, but one way you can look at it is, you can buy a watch that is super multifunctional, but economical, or a watch that is reduced in functions, but premium - higher end."
Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is coming for the PS3 and could back up that quality statement in a big way
