I hope and think this guy has no clue what he is talking about saying Gran Turismo 6 will be for PS3

LackTrue4K1881d ago

when they displayed GT5GT6 on a 4k tv....was it playing on a ps3? or a pc??
If it was not playing on a ps3, then i really doubt its coming to the ps3.

chazjamie1881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

man i hope so, gt 5 was the worst gt i ever played. they need some kind of redemption. it was so disappointing in almost every way.

@Cupid, dude it looked like a playstation 2 game. Meaning all those additions, could not change the fact that was just a rush job. Gran Turismo has always been a benchmark game for playstation, it pushed the console's limits. There is absolutely nothing in that game that demonstrated this.

Cupid_Viper_31881d ago

@ ChazJamie

You couldn't possibly be serious... GT5 the most with the most accurate physics of all the GT games, Night, dynamic weather, rain, Rally, is the worst GT you've played?

Ok... I'm off to up my B-Spec stats, I'm still at level 21.

Larry L1881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

1st thing I have to say is "I told ya so".

2nd, the 4K display was GT5, and it was playing on a PS3 array....I don't know what the proper term for it is. I think I read it was 4 strung together or 8. Can't recall specifics. But it was GT5. It was just a tech demo using GT5 not "upscaled" but displaying in 4k.

Back to the I told you so thing lol......

There's SO many reasons it would obviously be a PS3 game...though It's obviously going to be for both PS3 and PS4.

There's no way they were going to pass up PS3's 70+million install base to be a PS4 launch window/year one game with MAYBE a 20 million install base if Sony were luckier than they've ever been with hardware sales. It would more likely be 10 million TOPS.

Also, Kaz is a perfectionist and has something to prove with the PS3 hardware. If you think that sounds may be, but I guarantee he feels that way even if he would never say it.

But most importantly, GT6 HAD to be a PS3 game because of 2 things Kaz said durring and before GT5's launch. 1) Now that they have GT5's engine 100%, the next game would take FAR less time. ANd 2) That work on GT6 began right after GT5 launched.

Well This Fall GT5 will be 3 years old, so GT6 was probably on track for release this Fall or next Spring the latest anyway.

I'm going to be VERY interested to see the difference between GT6 on PS3 and PS4. The differences will likely only be visual aside from PS4 exclusive integrated features. I really hope the two version of all these cross-gen games are able to play online with each other. There's no reason they shouldn't the way graphics scaling works now-a-days. Making these cross-gen games must be SO easy aside from specific features. The way they're all made on PC, I bet it's almost just sliders. Set the sliders "here" to be able to run on PS3 and 360, turn them up to "here" for PS4/720.

This is a WEIRD generation. The new hardware kinda HAS to come, yet at the same time the old hardware still has PLENTY of legs. They can play decent versions of anything. It's not like last gen.....ever play the PS2 version of GRAW? Yea, it was time to move on. On the other hand, the PS3 version of BF3 or Crysis 3 is still pretty damn impressive for what will soon be "last gen".

Larry L1881d ago

And @ the author who said:

"This should be a pretty disappointing thing for people who want to see technological progression, since we have already how Polyphony have struggled on the PS3 when it comes to executing their vision."

You seem to be yet another person (amongst the majority of gamers on the internet who ever mention GT5) who seemingly gives no regard to the fact that GT5 was one of the first, if not THE very first PS3 game in development. It started in early 2005, and the graphics engine was eventually finalized mid 2008 after GT5P released (GT5's graphics were only scaled back at this point). Games like Killzone 2, Uncharted 2....and basically every other Ultra amazing PS3 exclusive that would eventually come out were still well into development. GT5 didn't have the benefit of any of those PS3 coding secrets. Yet GT5 still hold up against graphically against newer racers. Only the newest look better, and even then it's arguable in areas. A game that started development in 2005 and was visually finalized in 2008 I'll remind you.

So did they REALLY struggle with PS3 hardware as much as people say, or is it really that GT5 was just one of the very first PS3 games in development, and it's delays just allowed much younger games with much newer tech to release first so those games made GT5 look less impressive?

knowyourstuff1881d ago

If it comes out for PS3 it had better come out this year, else it will be overshadowed by the PS4, as it will push graphics way better than anything GT6 will be capable on just the PS3.

Also, it doesn't mean it can't be moved to PS4 depending on how far GT6 has been in development. If the design of the game has been done moreso than the actual coding, then a PS4 release may not be so pie in the sky, as you just need to start coding on a new machine with whatever design you came up with previously (along with new design features that take advantage of PS4 tech).

SilentNegotiator1881d ago

The next GT game will be on Ps4, no question.

gta28001881d ago

It would make more sense to make a tittle like this for the's one of Sony's flagship titles...makes more sense to put it on their new console...would be even bigger if it was a launch title!

Dee_911881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

Ive been saying this all along. as a matter of fact


I dont see why people want it to be a ps4 game.It was being developed for ps3 back when gt5 released (year before ps4 dev kit was released) so its not like it wouldve been a "True" ps4 game.It would more than likely be a PS3/PS4 game

inveni01880d ago

They were playing it on multiple PS3s to get the 4k res, I heard.

_-EDMIX-_1880d ago

Sony has always released 2 GT's per PS system. This should be to no surprise to true GT fans.

And at the lame that said GT5 was the worst GT...not sure they're human. Online, Nascar, Rally, damage, over 1000 seems that having more, better and unique features is a really, really bad thing to them. LOL! As a HUGE GT fan....GT5 was easily the best GT game by far.

GT6 on PS3 will be great. and NO its not coming out this year. I really doubt that. GT6 will probably be out fall next year or spring next year.

This is a business and Sony knows it best, not many companys can say they have systems/hardware that sell over 70 million EVERY gen. Nintendo did it 3 times (Wii, DS and GBA), MS once, Sony did it 4 times and I assure you they will do it again with PS4 and PSV.

Sony knowing how to make money will NOT make GT6 for PS4. PS3 has a 70 million install base and Sony intends to cash in. Last Of Us, Beyond 2 Souls, GT6, The Last Guardian and what ever Sony happens come up with. They will keep supporting PS3, cause they have studios to do so.

guitarded771880d ago

@ chazjamie

How do you game if you're blind? GT5 is one of the best looking games of this generation. Sure, it had some pixilated shadows, but otherwise it is beautiful, and runs perfect.

Dee_911880d ago (Edited 1880d ago )

oh okay I see why people want it to release on PS4.
Because its a "system seller".
Well speaking as a gamer with limited funds and as someone who knows PS4 will sell regardless,I want gt6 to be on PS3.
Do you all not see the wrong in purposely holding a game off for a more financial release?Thats like capcom and on disc DLC.Its like yall care more about ps4 selling than getting games and thats freaking sad.
When did gamers become pixel counting stock brokers

Awesome_Gamer1880d ago

Grna Turismo 6 will be released for both, PS3 and PS4, guys.

stragomccloud1880d ago

They were running a custom setup by combining 4 PS3s and running them all together.

Ritsujun1880d ago

Gran Turismo 6: Prologue will be released for PS4.
GT6 on PS3? Keep dreaming, brats.

Why? Why? Why? Why? It makes no sense unless its beung released on both. Is that what drive club is, to satiate those angry at this announcement?

jerethdagryphon1881d ago

no drive club is carporn.

gt6 is crack.

simple as that

HammadTheBeast1881d ago


Not the best analogy.

DriveClub is meant to be a super cool looking first person, team-based, racing game.

Gran Turismo 6, we don't know anything about, except that from what we know of past entries it will be a badass, hyper-realistic, racing game.

_-EDMIX-_1880d ago

@Spoon. No GT6= PS3 selling more units and GT6 selling more units.

First PS4 has no GT engine, it takes PD a long time to make a beast engine. Second, no GT has EVER launched with a PS system...ever.
Third there has been historically 2 GTs on every PS system.

Why should PS3 owners get jipped because a PS4 released? SO if the PS4 version turns out ot eb SOOOO GOOD. If you where a PS4 would if feel if GT7 would release on PS5? Sony is not stupid like Nintendo, Sony very much intends to release 2 GT's and get sales and keep some of those fans happy.

PS4 will get its GT and its time in the sun, its PS3's turn still. LOL.

GT4: PS2 (2005)

GT6: PS3

Driveclub: PS4

juandren1881d ago

What does that even mean?

classic2001881d ago


I think he wants to say its always 2 Gt games on each playstation but if this is true then its freaking late and might slow the sales of PS4 for a while. GT is just too big in my opinion to be for PS3 so late near a PS4.

Virtual_Reality1881d ago

Is Driveclub even a Simulator or a Arcade with Sim elements?

iWishTifaWasReal1881d ago

LOL at juandren.

that was exactly what i said. but with a troubled face

The funny thing is, that picture looks like next-gen, but is actually like realtime GT5 on a PS3...

They want GT"7" to be the be all end all of racing games. That is fine. Drive club will suffice to me for a couple years if it is supported and we don't know what other racers will be released. Plus, I still have my PS3!

AngelicIceDiamond1881d ago

Maybe GT6 will be able available on PS4's Gai Kai?

LOGICWINS1881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

Not surprising. Sony needs to continue giving reasons for people to continue supporting the PS3. Expect popular PS franchises like Infamous, GT, and Killzone to get more sequels on the PS3. The fact that Shadow Fall takes place 30 years after Killzone 3 opens up a HUGE story gap that needs to be filled. Anyone who finished KZ3 knows that theres a HUGE cliffhanger at the end. Sev and Rico's storyline isn't over yet.

Expect Sony to announce Killzone 4 for the PS3...just as I predicted

shivvy241881d ago

SPOILER ALERT - im pretty sure sev and ricos story has ended, in the ending they pretty much blew up that ship and then used that jet thingo to go home

gta28001881d ago

If they find a way to make the PS4 backwards compatible, I will continue to welcome PS3 games with open arms. But if there won't be BC, I hope they fully focus and invest more on the PS4. I love my PS3 but I'm ready to move on to the next gen.

DarkBlood1881d ago

welll it explains driveclub but one might think that would go to the ps3 and this to the ps4?

Knight_Crawler1880d ago

But when you think about it PD spent tons of money on the GTA5 engine and took a long time to release GT5 so it would not make sense financially to have only made one game on the PS3.

They need to make back the money that was spent on the engine and game development of GT5.

Also working on the PS4 would mean that they would have to modify there engine or start from scratch which cost tons of money to do.

Root1881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

I call BS...sorry I'd understand if you could play PS3 games on your PS4 but something as big as GT would be a massive seller for the PS4. I don't think Sony would waste a chance like that

I mean they didn't do that for the PS2, they just give it a price cut and kept on selling it for over 10 years

Unless later on we'll get a much better version of the game on the PS4

LOGICWINS1881d ago

"I call BS...sorry I'd understand if you could play PS3 games on your PS4 but something as big as GT would be a massive seller for the PS4."

Massive seller for the PS4? The PS4 has NO install base at the moment.

If GT6 were to release this year, which platform do you think it would sell better on.

The one with a 77 million+ install base(PS3) or the one with NO install base(PS4)???

Prodigy-X1881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

Hey!!!, he saying GT6 would be a massive seller and based how good the past GT games sold it wouldn't be a surprise. You say if GT6 was to release this year which platform would it sell better on that's where your wrong because most likely they were working on GT6 for PS4 after GT5 released. It would release on PS4 by late 2014 or early 2015 based on how easy it is to develop for the PS4 and by that time the install base should be 10-15 million.

It doesn't take logic or a genius to know that its just common sense.

LOGICWINS1881d ago

"You say if GT6 was to release this year which platform would it sell better on that's where your wrong because most likely they were working on GT6 for PS4 after GT5 for PS4 when the developer kits went out."

So theres going to be a GT5 remake for the PS4????

LOGICWINS1881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

"It would release on PS4 by late 2014 or early 2015 based on how easy it is to develop for the PS4 and by that time the install base should be 10-12 million."

Early 2014? So your saying Sony will pit two platform exclusives against each other by releasing GT6 just a couple of months after Drive Club, another driving simulator? In what universe does that make sense?

"If were going by your "logic" then why did they release Killzone 2 on the PS3 instead of the PS2 when the PS3 had no install base"

In order to have a premier shooter on the level of Halo. Killzone 1 sucked on the PS2, why would Sony repeat their mistake with KZ2? Clearly the PS2 wasn't powerful enough to produce a serious online shooter.

Your argument doesn't work because the PS2's install base DIDN'T care for KZ1.

It didn't even break a million!

"Oh I was interested in it but now thats it only for the PS4 I'm not impressed anymore"

Root, just because people are impressed by something doesn't mean they will run out and buy it lol.

You think everyone who enjoyed what they saw on the 20th will buy a PS4 Day 1? You make it seem like every gamer has $500-$1000 just stowed away to buy anything/everything that impresses them.

Root1881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

If were going by your "logic" then why did they release Killzone 2 on the PS3 instead of the PS2 when the PS3 had no install base at the time ¬¬

Oh yeah....I know because those games are good sellers for Sony after how well the previous game did.

If you announced GT6, hyped it up, showed off amazing graphics, gameplay, new features etc and then said "only on the PS4" do you really think people would go

"Oh I was interested in it but now thats it only for the PS4 I'm not impressed anymore"


They would be like

"BLOODY HELL....I'm getting a PS4"

Hell some of the comments from people on forums, facebook, around the web say that Killzone/inFAMOUS Second Son is the game which is making them "get a PS4 at launch"

When you have a game someone likes on a console then you'll get the console for that. God knows how many people bought the original Xbox just for Halo.

CraigandDayDay1881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )


But you've got to understand that Sony NEEDS a few big games like a Gran Turismo to get units selling and GT6 would be a HUGE system seller. People would be snatching PS4's up left and right with a game like GT6 launching alongside it. Not to mention there will be Killzone: Shadowfall and others.

Exactly, my friend.

@Logic (below)
Are you saying that Killzone or InFamous are impossible to get people to buy a PS4??? lol They are GOOD games, man. Who are you to say that they're not good enough to get people to buy a PS4?? The whole world doesn't revolve around Halo and CoD. There are plenty of gamers who play other stuff too besides that same re-hashed, annual crap. You've got to be joking.

LOGICWINS1881d ago

Your comparing the console selling power of a Halo game to a Killzone/Infamous? LOL

LOGICWINS1881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

"Are you saying that Killzone or InFamous are impossible to get people to buy a PS4???"

See now your putting words in my mouth. I never said it was IMPOSSIBLE for SOME people to buy a PS4 for these games, but to say that Killzone or Infamous have the same power to sell a console as a Halo is ridiculous.

"both PS1 PS2 & PS3 are already successful, especially in the case of PS2 which didn't require a Halo game to reach 150 million!"

??? What does that have to do with anything? lmao

Tito081881d ago (Edited 1881d ago )

@ CraigandDayDay and Prodigy-X - Don't listen to LogicLoses, he knows well what you're talking about, he's just simply trying to win an argument he knows he's not right about. And seriously using vgchartz which is very unreliable source,both PS1 PS2 & PS3 are already successful, especially in the case of PS2 which didn't require a Halo game to reach 150 million!

The reason why Halo is selling, is not only mainly because is a good game, but also you have to know there have being 6 Halos since 2007, Microsoft was following the yearly game routine like Activision, EA & Ubisoft, & Halo alone really didn't help 360 beat PS3, & the fact that PS3 sold the same amount of consoles one year behind 360 says a lot. Of course Killzone doesn't have the popularity Halo has,but it's far from being a bad game, & Sony doesn't seem to be focusing on the same IPs as Microsoft does, since a lot of the 3rd party games, with the exception of shooters, sells more on PS3!!

classic2001881d ago


Firstly you underestimating the biggest IP that sony got is ridiculous, It does not matter whats the price for a playstation, GT6 can come and create that large install base.

That game is a console seller and one of the biggest console seller. Uncharted, god of war and killzone are great IPS but compare them to what gran tourismo as done to all playstation console is not even possible.

Outside_ofthe_Box1881d ago

I don't get what's so hard about understanding that GT6 would be a system seller for the PS4 and choosing to release it on the PS3 instead of the PS4 would be a missed opportunity.

Bathyj1881d ago

whats more important to sony right now, selling maybe 10 million copies of gt on ps3, or selling 5 million copies on ps4 but selling 5 million consoles with it?

getting that install base up in the early days is an advantage they can ride on the back off for the whole generation, just like ms did this gen.

Hicken1881d ago

Man, can you STOP?

Yeah, GT6 would sell more on PS3, as the PS3 obviously trumps the nonexistent install base of the PS4.

But if we were following your equally nonexistent logic, companies would NEVER release games on their new consoles. Do you understand how STUPID that sounds?

Gran Turismo is a system seller. You put your SYSTEMS SELLERS on systems that need selling. Now, which system needs selling: the 77 million unit PS3, or the 0 unit PS4?

This'll probably get marked for a Personal Attack, but I can't possibly understand how you can be this STUPID.

logic with his over eagerness to always downplay other peoples rational thoughts with his "logic". one thing ive always noticed its always against the ps crowd he goes after. just bubble him down and move on.

dcbronco1880d ago (Edited 1880d ago )

Sony has to spread the in-house releases out. If inFamous and Killzone are launch titles, they need to hold out something for the tax season. That is another huge selling period. I wouldn't release three of my titles at the same time for them to cannibalize each other. I'd do maybe inFamous and GT6 at launch and Killzone in February. Also there might be a next gen CoD and Battlefield Holiday '13. I would rather move my shooter away from that.

_-EDMIX-_1880d ago

@ LOGICWINS- is 100 percent correct! there's absolutely no reason to release a Gran Turismo game with a 0 install base. you guys keep making it sound like the importance of selling a game launch day is much more than selling a quality game on a large install base.

look back historically when Gran Turismos have released. a Gran Turismo released 2 on every PlayStation system since the PlayStation 1.

Now Ridge Racer and MotorStorm both launched on Playstations, why would it make sense to launch a GT game with the least install base? Also why do you think they would launch it against Drive club? As if it would make sense to pin the same genre against each other.

the people that want GT 6 on PlayStation 4 have no idea about the GT history with the PlayStation.

it will always be two GT's per PlayStation I don't see Sony deviating from that plan in fact drive club is specifically because there will be no GT launching on PlayStation 4 at launch or near it.

GT will do tens of millions on PS3. you guys seem to forget that Sony is primarily a publisher, they kind of have to make money. and the money that will be made from GT6 will fund GT 7 on PlayStation 4.

another thing to note is that sony has always supported platforms for very very long time they don't just jump ship because they are releasing another system. I don't think it's fair to PlayStation 3 owners to get 1 less GT because ps4 came out.

PlayStation 3 is just as much investment to a gamer as it is to Sony.

I won't buy a PlayStation 4 if Sony would just jip me by only releasing a single GT. ( well I wouldn't be as happy). history will repeat itself and GT6 will release on a PlayStation 3 and GT 7 release on PlayStation 4 in the future.

there's nothing to show that Sony is deviating from that plan.
