Oh, So Gran Turismo 6 Might Come To The PS4 After All
Is it just me, or has no one noticed how weird the name “Gran Turismo” is up until now? Like think about it; do you actually know what it means? I’m far too lazy to Google that shit, so let’s just roll with it until the next instalment.
Yesterday Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi revealed the next instalment in the long running racing simulation franchise, Gran Turismo 6. The reveal took place at the Silverstone Track in the UK, at an event celebrating the 15 year anniversary of the franchise. Many questioned why GT6 would only appear on the PS3, especially considering the PS4’s release being right around the corner, but it seems like the PlayStation racing exclusive might make the jump sooner than we thought.

When questioned about GT6 on the PS4, Yamauchi was quoted as saying:
“We actually do have a PlayStation 4 version in mind, but for this holiday season, we thought it would be best for users to release on PS3 for now.”
“I thought the best scenario would be to have the game come out, then to have new scenarios, new DLC and other updates. Once the players have thoroughly played out the system, if the PlayStation 4 version came out naturally, as part of that process, I think that would be the best scenario.”
So, not exactly a top priority then? If this really is the plan for the Gran Turismo series, then wouldn’t it be a better idea to release an all new entry on Sony’s next console, rather than eventually porting this instalment a year or so after release? Seems like an odd decision to me.
Regardless, Gran Turismo 6 will release exclusively on the PS3 at the end of this year.
