As Saturday is an insanely crowded public day at Tokyo Game Show, after shooting a pile of pictures and finishing up a final appointment, I headed back to Tokyo for my last order of TGS business – a visit to Polyphony Digital, the home of Gran Turismo.
Being a huge fan of the series I’ve always wanted to visit the studio, and as you can see by this photo gallery, the place is pretty incredible. We got a lengthy presentation of Gran Turismo 5 from series creator and Polyphony CEO Kazunori Yamauchi, some time with the game (see our hands-on preview of Gran Turismo 5), and a tour of their location. This place is no joke. From having one of the largest server processing rooms (and cools Kazunori’s wine collection), an elevator that lifts cars into the studio, to a hotel for staff to sleep – Polyphony Digital is one of the most interesting studios I’ve ever visited.
Words can barely describe, so make sure you check out our Polyphony Digital Studio Tour photo gallery to see for yourself!
