224w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a recent interview that James Gallagher conducted with Gran Turismo Creator Kazunori Yamauchi of Polyphony Digital.

To quote: With a November 2nd release date now on the horizon for Gran Turismo 5, our dashing European counterpart [Register or Login to view links] sat down with Polyphony Digital's [Register or Login to view links] yesterday.

"[..] one is in progress but hasn't quite been completed, but may eventually be released."

He also said that the porting is about 95% complete, but I don't know how much time it will take for the remaining 5% to be completed, so maybe it will soon be available, maybe not, but this is great hope for the Linux community!

287w ago - Today Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell shared the following interview via PS Blog:

During GDC last week, our friends at [Register or Login to view links] invited us to chat with Keita Takahashi, Noby Noby Boy and Katamari series creator, and you should know him well by now.

Of course, I jumped at the chance to talk to Mr. Takahashi, as his always-entertaining posts have made me quite a fan.
