Polyphony Digital Focusing Development on Gran Turismo 6

GT5 to receive fewer updates as Polyphony Digital focuses on new title. (Gran Turismo 5, Gran Turismo 6, PS3)

Objective  +   1286d ago
Uh good luck Polyphony, make it happen faster and something better this time huh?

Judging by your disagrees, someone wants to wait a long time for a game worse than its predecessor. o.o

I wouldn't say it's fact at all, merely personal preference. I've played and own the games in both franchises, and I just find it embarrassing when someone tries to paint one as better than the other, especially when trying to pass it off as fact.

There are plenty of things that GT5 absolutely blows FM4 out of the water at, and vice versa. Both games excel in different areas. Trying to proclaim one as king just demonstrates that you haven't played both games to be honest.

lmao Is that an invitation for me to join your website and get into that debate? My oh my that could be the biggest mistake you've ever made... I'll think about it.

I played GT5 I got a ps3 off craigslist to play it

Im looking foreward to getting the ps4 off craigslist when 6 comes out in order to play it.

Confirmed GT6 in 2017 :D can't wait lol

Seriously though guys get some more staff and get this game built quicker than the last. I want more than 1 GT game a generation, 2 is the sweetspot IMO.

One early on and one nearer the end of a machine's life. GT3 + GT4 were perfectly timed.

We don't actually know the platform for sure GamerSciz if you read the interview elsewhere....he is asked the platform. He does not confirm. Maybe we will get two versions?

So while you assume it will be fast and on PS3 that may not be the case.

The game will be much faster then the previous as one can only expect it to be one of the last PS3 titles. That means that the engine they currently have will simply be upgraded/modified. Not built from scratch like GT5 was (for the most part). So one can only expect GT6 to not take as long.
Raf1k1  +   1286d ago
Removing those useless cars most people never touch should help speed up the process. Do we really need three different varients of the same car?

I like that they try to have a complete collection of cars but does anyone really buy GT games so they can drive a Volkswagon Golf?
BitbyDeath  +   1285d ago
Every Playstation so far has had two GT games.
I expect we'll be getting an announcement for it very soon, possibly at Gamescom

Something better this time? Have you hit your head or something?

I do admit it the car models could have used a bit more polish, but the game is still selling to this day.

Just this week the game sold about 17,700 copies with a global total 7.73m. This game can be a 3.5 and it would still sell because of it's history and iconic status.

Just like Halo and Call of Duty have their FPS shooting tournaments and sponsorships from other brand name Sony and Polyphony does this as well.

The series has been involved in sponsoring various real-life sporting events and teams, including D1GP since the 2008 season, the first chicane on the Mulsanne straight at Circuit de la Sarthe, and racing teams such as Pescarolo Sport, Audi/Oreca, Peugeot, Abt Sportsline, Signatech-Nissan and Audi A4 DTM.
Racing drivers

Winners of the Gran Turismo Academy include Lucas Ordóñez, Jordan Tresson and Jann Mardenborough, who have all gone on to compete in professional real-life racing.

With a new bundle coming out for Gran Turismo, the sales for this game will increase even more

I can think of a lot of things that need polish in that game but the car models, the premium models for GT5, are far above everything else on the market.

I can see Wii U online possibly surpassing PSN, but Xbox Live will be hard to beat. #2

Horizon for sure. It is going to breath a much needed fresh breath of air to the genre, and it being related to Turn 10, you just know they are going to do it right. NFS is just getting old, tired and out of ideas. #10

1st disagree wasn't from me, but why so surprised that your comment will invite disagrees from rational minds? Forza has brought so much more to the driving game genre, pushing the boundaries every time. #2.1

The Forza franchise is really taking off to a stratosphere no one else can come close to. They have made substantial improvements to the simulation series with every instalment, and now they are going to explore other genres of racing. This is what it should all be about, breaking barriers and exploring new horizons. #1

GT5 is absolutely awesome and I'm excited to see what they do with GT6. I think I'm most eager to see what changes they make to the course creator really, if they allow for deeper and more complex editing, and what new themes they integrate into it.

Hoping to see a lot of great tracks from GT4 make a return too!
Bonerrr  +   1286d ago
GOOD! and for god sake, Gran Turismo doesn't belong on a handheld...
"buuu gt5 psp sold"........
It also played like a c*nt.
Lets hope Polyphony keep their dignity this time and concentrate on their most important Platform.
majiebeast  +   1286d ago
Vita version would work though same controls as ps3 cept for l2 r2.
Bonerrr  +   1286d ago
Gran Turismo is a simulator, it's designed with a wheel. It should be played with a wheel.
The over-exaggerated over-steer doesn't fair well for me and it didn't fair well when i owned the PSP version.
I'm sorry but games like GT/Forza should stay on a solid platform.
Jio  +   1286d ago
Please please please add real damage and make it have a world map like GT4, not the boring lifeless menues.
Gorbenshore  +   1286d ago
yes, I agree, real damage is needed
Knushwood Butt  +   1285d ago
Mechanical damage would be good, but if they did that they need to improve the CPU AI too, and also the physical properties of the CPU cars.

I'm fully aware you're supposed to avoid contact with other cars, but sometimes you will want to take some risks. I hate it how, when there's contact, it's as the CPU car is a WWII tank, and your car suddenly inherits the properties of a ping pong ball.

That, and a few other things aside, I'm a massive fan of GT5 and playing it to this day.
Gorbenshore  +   1286d ago
Hopefully vehicle destruction will be more realistic. Still a great racing sim/game
Nutsack  +   1286d ago
They still want to release on the PS3? With the time they need to get out a new GT, they'd rather make it for the PS4 already...
jizzyjones  +   1286d ago
They said the level of detail in GT5 premium cars was more suited to PS4, PS4 launch title would be nice imo.
Feldman9000  +   1286d ago
The game engine is in place already. They could make it a more complete game.
HelloHowAreYou  +   1286d ago
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF: Just because FM3 and FM4 have a higher score, doesn't mean it's better. I just wanted to make that clear and dilute your fanboyism :)
spektical  +   1286d ago
GT6 for ps3? GT5 was amazing quality stuff. Too bad reviewers knocked only because it took long to come out. What a shame on journalists these days. However, only premium tracks look good, and adding more customization would go a long way
JAM_brz  +   1286d ago
Polyphony need with urgency make some contract with a partner that understands of cars and wheels.
The sound in GT5 its pretty bad compared to Forza. And thats it because of Top Gear being a partner of Turn 10. They got a lot of information about cars, and that helps a lot.
Angels3785  +   1286d ago
LOL the partnerships GT has compared to forza is monumental.......some would even say better than Top Gear when it comes to the know abouts of cars. Top gear is just more well known than say NASCAR Drivers, F1 drivers, Mercedes Benz, BMW, Nurburgring, Red Bull Racing, Austin martin, Nissan GT accademy, Le Mans, GT also has a partnership with Top Gear, in fact they had it before Forza even did. All the above are GT partners with countless others that I didnt bother to google. But I think the fact that the sounds and damage were sub par came down to the game finally getting pushed to release. If it was up to polyphony it would have went for a 10 year cycle.
SAE  +   1286d ago
I'm sure its gonna release in the end of 2013 or in 2014 maximum :)

the engine is already created not like before , they already learned how to create fast in that engine , they started making gt6 even before gt5 release :P , soooooo it's only gonna take 3 years to make gt6 for ps4 because ps3 can't handle another gt game and I'm glad it doesn't , i want ps4 right now >.< , can't imagine the quality of the games >.< , no limits !!! :P
GamingTruth  +   1286d ago
how can it not handle another gt game? and if it cant then i guess it will have to wait for next gen since no other platform can handle anything after 5 let alone 5
SAE  +   1285d ago
gt5 took all the space of the blue ray , that's enough for me to believe it doesn't handle another gt game ...

just look at the background of the tracks , do you think PD are too lazy to make a good looking backgrounds ?.. when you look at the cars in the background you see a sega graphics lol but when you look at the premium cars they look like next generation game .....

don't forget about how the ps3 limits effects the gameplay/graphics/features , even the loadings are too long
thehusbo  +   1286d ago
Can't wait for the king to return! Love gt5 and no doubt gt6 will be even better.
LLJAF  +   1286d ago
Forza v GT
Graphics pretty much equal, gt5 city based tracks possibly have the edge. Car selection, Forza is much better. Gameplay and handling, gt5 IMO is quite a bit better and probably the reason for longer dev time. Forza while it's a good rival, I think Gt5 is clearly a better drive.
theWB27  +   1286d ago
My biggest gripe with GT5 was the career set up and not letting us race with all the cars in arcade or time trial. Some people just like to race, it makes no sense for them to have all these cars and not be able to race, and have to wait for them to "show up" in the used car section. You'd think with all the hard work they put into it they'd want the player to experience every car. It's harder to grind for what you want in this game than most RPG's.
hennessey86  +   1286d ago
Can't wait
GT6 and Forza 5= gaming heaven
Sgt_Slaughter  +   1286d ago
I just hope the NASCAR physics in the next one are better. It felt like Daytona USA at some points. Other than that, maybe AI that adapts to the race conditions and doesn't take the same line every race.

They will will do a great job, regardless of time spent.
BABY-JEDI  +   1285d ago
I look forward to the next GT having premium models throughout.. Also, having a better menu system in place.. Everything else IMO is near perfect.
Oh, & more advanced damage physics/ models. ; )
The_Infected  +   1285d ago
Here's some ideas.

Put far less cars in the game. We don't want JUNK:)
Make all car models top quality
Focus more on track quality this time. Paper trees don't cut it anymore.
Enhance the sound quality greatly
"Don't take 6 years"
"No delays"
Make the entire fame look as good as photo mode:)
Make GT6 on PS4. The sequels on the same current tech are getting old. There is no "WOW" factor anymore.

SAE  +   1285d ago
I agree with you but i think the more cars the better , we all know that PD will make all the cars top quality for gt6 , it's only a matter of time to them , so I'm expecting 2000 cars lol xD , or at least the same size but all top quality ...
Nexgensensation  +   1285d ago
500+ cars is good enough
cosmetic and physical damage is a must
cosmetic customizations is needed
a better online interface
a better menu interface
REAL PHYSICS / This real driving simulator needs to simulate real physics
Nexgensensation  +   1285d ago
what polyphony need to do is take a page from turn 10
GT5 was straight up confusion and the racing was as good as it gets. I definitely see forza in a much better position than gt5....
-online/ forza wins hands down
-personality/ forza wins hands down
-physic/ forza wins hands down
The only thing gt5 have over forza is the car selection but, even in that category gt5 fail.
polyphony needs to get off their high horse immediately because gt5 sucked

Hicken  +   1285d ago
Sorry, but I don't exactly know how you gauged "personality" between the two games. I, myself, can't stand Jeremy Clarkson, so Forza was considerably ruined for me there.

As for the physics, GT5 definitely has that, hands-down. The car models are also superior. And you can argue about "PS2 models" all you want, but the Premium cars are better than Forza's models. Except for Autovista, but you can't drive those, so...

There's also the features list, or I should say: the driving environment. One game has racing during the day... and later during the day. The other has racing during the day, during the night, with transitioning time and weather changes.

Forza's tracks are definitely more detailed than GT5's, so it's not like GT beats it in EVERY aspect. But you're crazy if you think GT is behind like that.

GT5 sucked? You didn't even play it, did you? Disregard everything I said; it's evident you're just another fanboy with no experience on the other side of the fence.
Nexgensensation  +   1285d ago
before even making an assumption about me not playing gt5, listen!
add me on psn: nexgensensation

now back to gt5 physics. u cannot tell me that gt5 physics oversees forza. gt5 physics are so flat footed you get a trophy for flipping your car over and you can only do that on one track. I believe you got the physics confuse with the simulation.

and for personality, i say that for the online races. players from all over in forza can personalize their car to match their personality.

you cant do that in gt5

Funny coming from a guy who never played Forza. And I highly doubt that YOU even played GT5. You probably read its features on the back of the box or some web site and decided to post it here.

You keep pointing fingers ranting and accusing others who have their own opinion and then wonder why you have one bubble.
