considering how long we waited for GT5, I would eat my own hat if GT6 isn't at least a close to launch title.

JoGam1887d ago (Edited 1887d ago )

What is Sony doing to my brain? My head is all over the place. I feel like a ten year old and tomorrow is Christmas.

After watching the video must say it was more about games and how Playstation changed the way we see and play games. I got the feeling one of the announcements will be cloud gaming.

MikeMyers1887d ago

If GT6 is a launch title for the PS4 it's an instant buy for me.

NBT911887d ago

GT6 definitely will sell consoles, launch game or not.
However the video was more about how PlayStation gaming has evolved, not just the GT series, that was merely an example.
I mean SotC was in the video and Journey, but I will be very surprised if those get sequels.

Obviously there will eventually be a GT game on PS4 but I am not getting my hopes up for a reveal tomorrow. (If there is though, with Gaikai, GT6 and PS4 all shown off it would be one heck of a show!)

Aceman181887d ago

this video demonstrates why i will always support Sony's consoles. they have the variety, and aren't afraid to support new creative ideas.

so the purchase of their new system is a no-brainer for me.

miyamoto1887d ago

PlayStation single handed removed the stigma that video games are toys for young children.

That alone was an incredible feat.
Something Ninty wont do and something M$ keeps on capitalizing on.

Sarcasm1887d ago (Edited 1887d ago )

Didn't PD already say they started work on GT6 right after GT5? Being one of the premiere studios for Sony, I wouldn't be surprised if they were one of the first studios to have PS4 specifications and develop with that in mind.

So GT6 might not be that far away than we think!

BlmThug1886d ago

Holy mother of Batman, GT6 is by far and large my most anticipated title for the next-gen :D

Im glad Sony put a huge effort in experimental games like Journey and LBP and this video shows that they wont stop doing that any time soon.

GT6 tommorow at the event.

It is still a lot better then Forza.

plaZeHD1887d ago

I agree with you, but you don't have to say IT.

DatNJDom811887d ago

Seems Gran Tourismo has been confirmed for PS4. :)

j-blaze1887d ago (Edited 1887d ago )

nah Forza is better imo..better AI, soundtrack, sound effects, driving and cars are fully customizable, also, Turn 10 didn't spend 5 years making a game then release it with pixelated cars, stupid AI and bugs

anyway, GT6 is def going to be announced at PlayStation Meeting, Kaz himself was teasing about it early this month...
hope Translator-san is there too xD

@ DigitalRaptor

so that isn't Kaz?! how did he know there will be announcement related to GT at the meeting :/ ? eh i'll leave my comment as it is anyway :(

DigitalRaptor1887d ago

@ j-blaze

Kaz Himself? Have you even read the profile description for that account?

"Announcer of prices, Lover of Ridge Racer, owner of giant hands. PARODY ACCOUNT. (formerly @KazHiraiSCE)"

The hint is in the word parody! LOL.

GT6 won't be a launch window title me thinks. Only 2 years passed since GT5 release so it needs at least about 2 more years of development.

It could be announced tomorrow though.

The_KELRaTH1887d ago

I could foresee a GT5 enhancement to add support for a PS4 though such removing the slow HDD menu loading etc.

kayoss1887d ago

If gt6 a launch game, I'm quitting my job and go camp out at best buy.

Mounce1887d ago

Watch, the whole huge announcement was JUST GT6 and not PS4.

I'd sorta laugh.

IRetrouk1887d ago

I would cry and be happy at the same time.

AzaziL1887d ago

It wouldn't surprise me if it's announced as a launch title, only to be delayed slightly after launch, and then delayed again for 2-3 more years. Wouldn't be the first time....

clarkdef1887d ago

GT Director once said that GT5s cars are good enough for ps4. I was looking at the prem showroom cars and their detail is super high, I think higher than when driving them. Good way to see the difference is the preview at the buy point.

I assume that they would look near perfect with better lighting, lighting that the ps4 could do.

Because I think as a company they would of thought ahead, and being that they worked so hard on the cars future proofing isn't out of question.

muttley651886d ago (Edited 1886d ago )

I would buy GT6 if!! those damn yellow lines not in it
and gameplay like GT3 turn as you see fit. not regulated to follow yellow lines. that was their mistake and reason i did NOT buy GT5.

Whoo boy. A new Gran Turismo title would just make my day.

Super Bon Bon, Super Bon Bon...

Walker1887d ago

The return of the king !

BanBrother1887d ago

Happens to be one of my favourite movies, only fitting it be used in regards to the best racing sim franchise of all time.

This all but confirms it!! If I was an anime girl, I would have wet my pants right now!!!.....too far??

kayoss1887d ago

Are you talking about lord of the ring or the disney movie lion king?

Walker1887d ago

I'm talking about king of the racing silmulations .

Chaostar1887d ago

"The return of the king"


Sorry I had to, these Kaz pics have been keeping me entertained for days, time to share the Kaz love.

Cocozero1887d ago

Hopefully this gen will be the one GT becomes a AAA game again

supraking9511887d ago

gt5 was better then the latest 2 Forza's how many Forza's were released this gen and yet there missing features that GT5 has

kudakadere1887d ago

You can't compare GT5 to Forza visa versa , their different games , end off .

theWB271887d ago (Edited 1887d ago )

Missing what features? Like weather and day/light on a handful of tracks? Only part of the game was made for the PS3...60 different versions of the same car? Terrible car sounds, non-existent damage modeling. Very limited car custimization. Online wasn't in the same league as Forza. GT was a half finished game that took 6 years to make with bad menus and slow as malasses progression and you say Forza was missing features? I'd rather they not be in at all than the half assed effort GT5 was.

In other news...can't wait for tommorow and hopefully if GT6 is shown then it's a complete game.

TheFallenAngel1887d ago (Edited 1887d ago )

PS3 is my favorite console and I'm getting a PS4 on launch day but forza is miles ahead of GT5. This is coming from a PlayStation fan since ps1. I played both and forza is way better in every way.

ip4jwipthjtt1887d ago (Edited 1887d ago )

GT5 is not better than Forza 4 coming from someone who owns them both. GT5 is a great game and I love playing it with my G27 but it has some flaws that should be fixed in the next GT game.

-There shouldn't be “standard” cars. It seems GT focuses on quantity over quality in this case.

-The sounds aren't so hot either.

-GT5 should of had a vinyl/design editor. Not a huge factor but should still be in the game.

-Making paint colours a one use item and forcing players to earn them is just flat out stupid. Also "paint chips" is just stupid. Hell the game doesn't even show a paint colour preview.

The fact it took the game so long to come out, while leaving this stuff behind just doesn't add up. Again, I'm not a Forza fanboy, even Forza lacks some things GT5 has like night racing, dirt, and snow tracks. Go-karts?LOL. Not to mention I love that they gave the new Corvette Stingray for free at the time of its debut.

Sorry my man but GT has always been AAA. Just saying.

@ Gribblegrunger. Its not just about what videos was shown but about the message in the video. I believe the clues are there.

GribbleGrunger1887d ago

Loud and clear: Expect us to continue innovating and taking risks with game development. That's a message that every PS fan will understand and appreciate.

gravv1887d ago

halo and forza also lost its aaa status last year, even journey [email protected] them in the as$ left and right and its only 3 hours game lol
