PS3 vs PS4 and How GT6 Will Mark the Beginning or the End

With numerous rumors and a recent retail listing pointing to Gran Turismo 6 hitting the PS3 this Christmas, around the same time as the PS4 is expected to come out, Daily Reaction discusses the PS3’s ten year lifecycle and when Sony should fully focus on the next gen. - PSLS (Gran Turismo 6, PS3, PS4)

A man likes these references. The other consoles will bend the motherboard or be deleted! The mighty cell shall rise up from the ashes to 105m sold and the king of the 7th gen! A man will offer all usurpers to the red god!

I feel like Sony might offer a cross-buy incentive with games like GT6.

you buy it physically on PS3 but you get a code to download the same game onto your PS4. This way, it cant be argued that GT6 is not a PS4 game and not up to PD's quality of seal etc... its a PS3 game, that just happens to be playable on your PS4.

There is talk of LBP3 for PS3 too... I think this might be viable option for gamers. Not sure what others think about PS3/ PS4 cross buy functionality. Seems to work for the PS3/ PSV.

I always think the GT games mark the start and stop of PS consoles... at least they have for the past two generations. Time to start the hype train!!

GT is a system seller and sonys BEST selling IP! i reckon it would be great if GT6 released on both systems

I'd rather have GT6 come out early in the PS4's lifecycle. Late 2014 would be a great time.

Do these people not know that they can just release the game on Gaikai?
Or just re-write some of the coding for it to be a downloadable title on the PS4?
Use your brain.

They can still do it.
And people would still buy a PS4 if they can still play GT6 on it.

"Or just re-write some of the coding for it to be a downloadable title on the PS4?"

a) It's not that simple
b) It's still not a proper PS4 title

It was never supposed to be in the first place...

So let me get this straight:

When I was complaining about the same thing for the likes of GoW:A, TLoU and Beyond, people shrug it off.

BUT, when it happens with GT6, NOW they want to suddenly wake up to PS4 and PS3 cannibalization?

COME ON PEOPLE!!! We're at the home stretch to E3!!! PICK UP THE SLACK!!!

I don't think GT6 will have any influence or impact on PS4 Sales. I think those who are not going to get the PS4 right away and want another Grand Turismo will buy it. Those who want a PS4 will pass on it and wait for the Console and buy Drive Club or any other Racer available. I think the PS4 will out sell GT6 because a majority of the fan base wants a new refreshed console. A Racing Game is just another racer that will come and go. Go PS4

What if the PS4 is black like the PS3?

Will ppl get confused when upgrading and buy another PS3 by accident!

Yes, completely agree it is crazy I think for Sony/Polyphony to release GT6 on the last leg of PS3's life when a much more simplier solution would be is to put a skeleton staff to develop and just bring out more DLC ( car and race tracks ) on GT5/PS3..

..and concentrate the entire production/artist/programmers in bringing GT6 to life for the PS4.

GT 6 should be a multi release.
Not everyone who has a ps3 is going to buy a ps4.
I will go with next box, because of BC, and I am not alone with this decision.
