Audio confirmation of Sony executive Michael Denny's comments stating Gran Turismo 6 will release this year on the PlayStation 3.
Unbelievable. I really hope the game is released for both systems - next-gen racing would just be better.
Why sell PS4 systems using GT6, when other new PS4 games can have install bases widened as well, then when the hardware is fully realized, GT7 will be groundbreakingly awesome, and the increased fanbase will buy it. Think long term.
It doesn't make sense to compete with Driveclub either a GT7 release a little down the line would make more sense. However I think they need to make sure that it's only like, a couple years down the line this time. Rather than spend 5 years in development. Which should be possible with the new architecture and recycled models from GT5 and GT6 on PS3. The models themselves are near perfect it's just the tracks, aliasing and shadows that need some work now.
Quote: "SCEE Senior Vice President Michael Denny suggesting Gran Turismo 6 will be released this year on the PlayStation 3" Just like i said many times ago. Media was bashing GT5 for how much time it takes to make, without understanding how games are built GT5 took 5 years because they were building a new game Engine! and building game engines takes A LOT of time... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Now they have the new engine ready, they only need to focus on the content and improving/updating graphics, physics, tracks etc ... I think im gonna re-buy the PS3.... BTW: GT5 is best looking racing game! imagine how GT6 will look! http://farm9.staticflickr.c... http://farm9.staticflickr.c... http://farm9.staticflickr.c...
@wathunder those are extremely good looking pictures, but they were taken in photo mode which had more post-processing and looked way better than the actual game.
Well, when GT does make the jump to PS4, they already have a very strong foundation. The last thing Gran Turismo car models need is more polygons. Higher-rez textures? Maybe. Where Gran Turismo graphics need to improve most is the tracks and little things like anti-aliasing and real-time reflections, something the PS4 shouldn't have any problems with. But I'm happy with another PS3 game for now, though I still have plenty to do in GT5.
I'm actually happy about it as I'll probably keep my PS3 a little longer than I really want to... I would love to get PS4 soon after release, but I'm in Brazil which means either get it at super high price practiced by Sony Brasil (the vita still costs 1600BRL, about 800USD) or try my luck with direct importation... At Xmas? With Brazillian Customs at the case? Trusting Brazillian Mail Service? Not a good idea... Better to wait for smuglers to get it cheap in Paraguai to resale here (but they also take their time to get a realistic price).
Would it really be a next gen racer if it was being developed for the ps3 for the past 2 or 3 years? You want them to scrap what they did over the years, possibly make a new engine and add an extra 2 or 3 year wait like gt5 orrr get gt6 this year on both ps3 and ps4 ? Yea I dont see the problem. PS4 sales arent that important to me for me to want my favorite game to be pushed back just so that the ps4 will sell more.. Thats just stupid.. But yea it was already being developed for ps3 which is why I been saying it will be released on ps3.Its common sense it will be on both ... like a bunch of other games will. I more than likely would be getting the PS4 version depending on the release dates
"But yea it was already being developed for ps3 which is why I been saying it will be released on ps3" Which platform do you think Last Guardian is going to release on? I'll be perfectly honest, I would rather GT6 were designed for the PS4. I've played GT5 a lot, I even bought a steering wheel for it. But I would really be more interested seeing a PS4 Gran Turismo. GT5 had A LOT of content, and the graphics were great. I really don't see what more they can add that I'd be interested in, but I'd very happily be proven wrong. Polyphony helped design the ps4, it's not like they didn't know it was coming.
GT6 on any PlayStation platform is welcomed. @Galacticos That may be true but you can't deny the 77 million install base of the PS3 and drop them like a bad habit like MS did with the first Xbox. That's not how Sony rolls. Sony supported the PS2 for years after the PS3 released. Remember God of War 2 on PS2 well into the PS3's life cycle. Besides, GT7 would be even bigger on the PS4.
But it might eat PS4 sales. I dont get it.
Agreed. It's just odd that it would be released so late in the console cycle and with very little knowledge about it. Maybe GT7 is only a few years away, but it's going to seem odd until Sony decides to explain the rationale. That is, if it's even true at all.
I don't think it will eat into PS4 sales, but it doesn't help them either. It could have, though... OTHO GT wasn't a launch title for the PS3 either. Polyphony usually takes their time and then optimizes for the platform. I hope this is the case here, too. Or maybe they are just pissed PS4 doesn't do 4K...it ran 4k with 3 or 4 PS3s...lol
You think a new GT this year will eat PS4 sales? Do you think it will sell MORE PS3s at this point? I think the GT audience has had a PS3 for years now, and it wouldn't deter anyone who is already buying a PS4. Its just one $60 investment vs a new console.
yOU people seem to be forgeting that the PS3 is going to compete with the PS4 Sony have yet to low the PS3 price to the sweet spot $199,and they need games for the PS3 ,because when it hits $199 or lower PS3s are going to fly out of the shelfs.Most of the market profits for Sony consoles in the next 2 years or 3 are still going to come from the PS3 and not from the ps4.
Same could be said about God Of War II and GT4, Sony has always made 2 GT's per PS system. This is not some "new" thing with Sony, they have done this many times and both past systems did over 100 million....they'll be ok. If you want GT6 on PS4....you do realize it will be out like 3 to 4 years after the PS4's launch right? They have to make a engine for the PS4 (mind you, I think PD is actually making that while making GT6 too) So why would Sony make a GT6 on PS4, wait 4 years and then release it, when they can make GT6 on PS3, get a crap load of sales and THEN make GT7 on PS4? This is a business and Sony know how to do it quite well. GT4's sales effect the PS3? GT2's sales effect teh PS2? Drive Club will do, mind you I see 2 Drive Clubs releasing before GT7. So we would have some beast racing games by Sony to play for GT7 is even shown. This is not a "new" choice, this is actually historically correct for what they've been known to do. (MIND YOU, GT6 was probably being made by PD well before there was even a devkit for PS4!)
THIS AND JC3 IN ONE DAY!? HOLY CRAP! I have a German speaking exam in 2 days but this has made me a very, very happy person.
It'd be dumb to release GT6 on such an old system, it would hardly be an improvement over GT5. Plus we'd end up with install and patch hell again.
God of War II came out after PS3 did.
Bubbles sir. You dont just abandon your fans
says the person thats never released a system. EVERY GT HAS RELEASED WELL AFTER A PS SYSTEMS HAS BEEN RELEASED! GT3 might be the earliest GT game to my understanding, almost 2 years after PS2 launched. Thats nice, but this is still a business. GT2 did 9 million units, GT4 did 11 million units etc. I'm sorry but it would be dumb to not capitalize on sales. Mind you, the best GT's have ALWAYS been the second on the system. GT2 (rally added, 650 cars etc)] GT4 (B-spec mode, 700 cars etc) GT is a progressive series (with the exception of GT3 which was still an amazing game too) that just gets bigger and better with then the last with each installment. More tracks, More cars, more features etc. GT6 will be no different. As a huge GT fan, I'm very excited for GT6.
I'm sorry? There's hope left for your Ps3 and YOU'RE NOT GLAD? See, this surprises me right now, more than anything. You don't own a Ps4, but you own a Ps3. Having more reason to play your Ps3 would mean getting more value for your money. But you don't want that?
People are dumb sometimes.
GranTurismo is a huge seller for Playstation so it seems logical to put it on the new system. And I'm not sure if GT6 on PS3 would look better than Drive Club. I've gotten more than enough out of the ps3 so I'd be happy if GT6 were on PS4, or both systems. That's my opinion. If they wanted GT6 on ps3 it should have released this year imo. edited typo
"You don't own a Ps4, but you own a Ps3. Having more reason to play your Ps3 would mean getting more value for your money. But you don't want that?" I've got my value for money from my ps3, and I feel done with the ps3. I'm fully geared towards ps4, everything I want in the future is PS4 related, so yes I want Gran Turismo 6 on PS4, not PS3. If you bought a new console, wouldn't you want a game like GT6 on it? We've had the PS3 for 7 years now, yes I am ready for something new
So you're saying support for the Ps3 should stop? They will be plenty of titles for the PS4 and GT7 will be on the system at some point.
Did I say support for the ps3 should be stopped? No, but personally I would like to see GT6 on PS4. What my point is is that I would rather play a completely new and breath taking GT6 in a year on ps4, as opposed to playing a GT6 on ps3 that is "possibly" not overly dissimilar to GT5, and then wait 5 years for GT7 to finally roll up No, I've no idea what GT6 will be like. But I didn't buy GT4. I absolutely loved GT3, but still wasn't that interested in GT4 Personally I want to see something totally ground breaking and few companies would show case PS4 as well as polyphony. But if GT6 is now on ps3, what this means is that we won't see GT7 until like 2016/17. And don't act like that's not true. Look at GT5.
pretty risky move by Sony. Gran Turismo is pretty much the call of duty in europe, a system seller. I hope it will have cross platform release
Why sell systems using GT6, when other games can have install bases widened as well, then when the hardware is fully realized, GT7 will be groundbreakingly awesome, and the increased fanbase will buy it. Think long term.
Ok ... I have a feeling he meant to say GTA6
It's probably going to be on both PS3 and PS4. He said THIS YEAR! No way they will announce in this year and release it this year. Not for a game as big as GT6. They will announce it at least one year before release just to get the hype building.
I really don't understand some people here. If Sony released GT6 on the ps4 and not on the ps3 then you guys will complain that Sony stopped supporting the ps3. Their are 77+ ps3 why ignore that install base. If they can still make money to support the ps4, then why not!?
i think it's weird. GT6 on PS4 would be a massive killer app. let's wait for an official statment, this guy is just a salesman.
Not even a year before the PS3 came out
Actually, GT4 came out almost 2 years before the PS3 launch. GT4 release: JP - Dec 28, 2004 NA - Feb 22, 2005 EU - Mar 9, 2005 PS3 launch: JP - Nov 11, 2006 NA - Nov 17, 2006 EU - Mar 23, 2007
Oops, you are right!
God of war 2 came out in 2007.....
@Minato And your point is...? Don't compare GoW to GT lol. The GT franchise sells more than double what the GoW franchise does. GT is Sony's system seller. And the situation with GoW 2 was completely different. There weren't many PS2 games coming out at that time, and 2 Sony wanted the PS2 to go out with 1 last great exclusive. That's the only reason GoW 2 came out on PS2. The PS3 already has great exclusives coming out. It doesn't need a game like GT6.
@PorkChop- ??? What? Sony has always released 2 GT's on a PS system. When and where did Sony say they where releasing GT4 on PS2 because they "wanted the PS2 to go out with 1 last great exclusive" Cause....to my understanding there has ALWAYS been 2 GT's on a PS system regardless of when the next system is releasing. You got a link to prove that GT4 was some sort of "fluke" that wasn't the norm of what the series has done? Link or it didn't happen. LOL!
Gran Turismo 4 came out in December 2004 in Japan. It was nearly 2 years before the PS3 came out. GT6 isn't even announced yet and the PS4 comes out this year.
It would be smarter to release it exclusively on PS4. GT5 skyrocketed PS3 sales, just as every GT game does for it's respective Playstation console. They're gonna want a huge exclusive like this within the first year. GT6 would ensure that PS4 has a healthy install base early on. GT is Sony's only true "system seller", and with how many years GT games take to make, they won't get another opportunity like this for many years.
Gran Turismo 6 is probably already half done for the PS3 and made specifically for it. Not to mention, PS3 will have 80 million+ users, which would go a long way towards making money, and thus, helping to make shareholders happy. You also have to understand that consoles late in their cycle make the most profit. So a game like GT6 helps keep people buying PS3s. You don't want Sony to just start dropping support for the PS3 do you? Sony's never done that before. Businesswise, GT6 on the PS3 is a wise decision.
Do you think Drive Club and GT6 will be connected in some ways? Like exchanging cars and tracks?
Uncharted and God of war can be described as system sellers as well
I wondered the same about God of War 2. But you can not deny that for the PS2 hardware GOW2 is a MASTERPIECE! and sold really great. That is why when GOW3 was released for the PS3 all the fans and more, bought the game. I think that is what Polyphony wants to achieve with GT6. With all they learned from GT5, they will make a game better in every aspect. It will sell like crazy, and when they announce GT7 for the PS4, all those 10M users will jump to next generation :D
It make sense to release on the PS3. The install base for the PS3 is huge and not everyone will buy a PS4 anyway right out of the gate.
This is one reason why I think PS3 games should be playable on PS4.
For all we know, Sony is doing the smart thing of releasing their biggest franchise on the last leg of a product that has over 70 million users. Microsoft did the same thing with Halo 4 on the x360 when they could have easily bypass it for the next xbox. The only concern is after GT6, how long will Sony take to make GT7 on the PS4? They will have to start from scratch with a new engine and hopefully it won't take as long as GT5.
A lot of the work is the modelling. They already have a lot of cars that they can use because they were all made in a much higher fidelity than the PS3 could ever handle. It won't take as long.
good news: "Polyphony Digital was involved in ps4's development, means that they might already have their new engine running on ps4." -Yoshida-San
Audio released? Lol this video game stuff is serious bizness
Still don't buy it It will come to the PS4 aswell, they could gain a huge install base with GT How can it compete with DriveClub when it won't be out for, god knows how long
Great stuff, hope it keeps my Gt5 garage save.
Justifying its release on the PS3 due to a large userbase isn't very reasonable. Keep in mind that GT5 is still selling extremely well on PS3 years after it was released. Putting GT6 on PS3 will not only cannibalize GT5 sales, it will also deprive the PS4 of Sony's most important franchise.
Why would GT6 exist for PS3? The answer is that it wouldnt. There is no room for improvement that deserves a full PS3 release. The consoles limitations have surely been meet by Polyphony already, no? If they have anything it would be DLC for GT5. I obviously don't know, but I would imagine that the digital recreations of vehicles and environments used for GT5 are detailed enough to be used more fully in GT6 on more capable hardware.
Its coming to PS4. Yoshida already stated PD is focusing their attention to PS4 and PS Vita. Yall can disagree all you want but the truth of the matter is its either releasing on PS4 and PS3 or exclusively for PS4. http://www.gtplanet.net/pol...
That's fine. Drive Club looks awesome.
A great decision, PS3 have 77 millions of systems and GT6 will be the demonstration that the machine have future and this will be the redemption of Polyphony in PS3, maybe the game will reach the 5 millions copies sold and it's more profitable that 1 million of units in PS4. In PS4 maybe we will see the game when the number of units sold will reach the 10 millions and for the new platform already exist Drive Club. Launches GT6 and Drive Club at same time will conduce to canibalism.
I rather get GT 6 for ps3 and GT 7 for ps4 since am sure they have to build a new engine that can take full advantage of the ps4 I can only imagine how it's going to look like :-)
Install base... 70+ million (ps3) consoles vs potentially 3-5 million (ps4)consoles I also like sony vs ms's style of releasing a racer. Release it once, update it constantly. Unlike a yearly or bi yearly release as if it were a call of duty title. I haven't read all the details but could it be possible that PS3 will get GT6 prologue and PS4 will get the full GT6 release?
Excellent news. I will be getting this for sure.
Why is everyone assuming that GT6 was being developed for the PS3? PD is one of Sony's main studios and as far as i understand GT6 has been in development shortly before GT5 launched. They could've been working with suggested PS4 specs. Personally i dont want it on PS3, its too close to launch now all they need is a few decent GT5 updates to keep us happy and drop GT6 Feb 14 and set the world on fire. *Prays*
The PS4 will have Drive Club as well. Which looks to take GT on head to head.
thats a really dumb decision. it should be on the PS4. not only for the game's good, but also it would be good for the PS4 launch
If Sony continues the same trend with the PS4/PS3 then we'll see it on both the 3 and 4 like we saw games for a long time on the PS3 and PS2 because Sony knows (especially in Today's economy) that not everyone can afford and will buy into a new console right away. Keep PS3 customers happy and they'll more likely go with the PS4. I hope MSFT doesn't stop all production of 360 games though like with the Xbox since right now PS4 is a day one but unless the 720 is way better and no mandatory kinct, I'll wait on it.
This makes sense. Given the fact that they'll be pushing Drive Club on PS4 for a while. This gives PD time to push their engine further (which is probably what they've been up to). Didn't GT5 run on an engine from 2008? So imagine what GT6 will look/play like now that they've been able to get the extra juice Naughty Dog and folks have been able to get from 2011/2012. Not to mention the inspiration PD can take from things done in other racing/driving games. GT5 kind of left a sour taste in some gamers' mouth, so I think GT6 being released on PS3 is the exact send off GT needs to get everyone even more excited for the coming PS4 version. Not to mention it's another reason under Sony's belt to tell people not to get rid of their PS3's.
I honestly didn't expect it to come this early. But still, why for PS3? I'm really curious about that. And also if it's just going to be another prologue game or the full game.
