At the same time, the conditions for GT6 were really against us, mainly because the PlayStation 3 hardware was a very difficult piece of hardware to develop for, and it caused our development team a lot of stress.

So [GT]5 and [GT]6 was really a nightmare for us.

I’ve been in this job for nearly ten years now, and I have never heard a first-party developer talk that much shit about their own platform. Amazing.
