Kazunori Yamauchi from Polyphony digital confirmed via Twitter earlier today that “game saves during endurance races” are currently “under development” for Gran Turismo 5. The full tweet translates roughly as:
“I’m sorry. Game saves during endurances. They are currently under development. RT @andrepeniche: as I simply don’t have 4, 9 or even 24 hours available to stay in front of the TV to do endurance races, as much as I love GT5, unfortunately it’s not possible for me to complete them.”
It’s great to see the dev responding to fan feedback, and I’m sure that mid-race saves would improve GT5’s endurance races to no end.
Thanks to GTplanet for the info.
