Gran Turismo PSP Promo Video Features Unsettling Amount Of GT 5 Footage

Gran Turismo PSP Kazunori Yamauchi Interview Trailer »

Maybe I’m being too sensitive about this, but there’s something unsettling about how this promo interview with Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi goes about explaining the features of Gran Turismo PSP. I mean, why does it contain so much footage of Gran Turismo 5 when the promo's primary purpose is to tout the features of GT PSP?

The only time GT 5 footage makes sense in the piece is when the smooth-talking narrator describes the ability to eventually import your car collection from GT PSP into GT 5. Other than maybe the intro, which mentions this being the first time the franchise has gone portable, there’s no reason why there should be any footage of GT 5 in this video, mainly because it just seems like false advertising. And even though the PSP footage appears on a PSP in the promo, there are times when the gameplay footage blends into full screen GT 5 footage, making it somewhat difficult to tell exactly which game you’re looking at.

Again, I might be getting all worked up over nothing here, but I figured it was worth mentioning, because I really just wanted to see what you all think about it.

Well? Am I being too sensitive, or what?
