But Microsoft basically already have the game, they just call it Forza. What would they gain by buying Polyphony that they don't have already with Turn 10, a bunch of fictional track layouts?
I think its as much a pride thing as anything else. The original Gran Turismo was the game that moved Sony from being a company that made great game hardware to being a company that made truly great software and hardware. They'd obviously has success with the likes of Wipeout but GT was a gamechanger for them.
