... there's a 360 [Just kidding people!]

I reckon we might see a PS4 version a couple of months after it releases.

Still day one no matter what systems it on.

I prefer ps4 for more power.

A port of a PS3 game on PS4? No.
A game like GT deserves to be built from the ground up for a console. Ports are a no no.
SolidStoner  +   946d ago
it seems, that it will come out to ps3... and I think that it will come to ps4 later on also! Dont see any reason why not... PS4 version could get better graphics and more features to do... that would be a real reason to buy it again.. in the end PD would make more money and I would be pleased with constant GT upgrade! ;)

With improved physics, better AI and next gen post processing effects, it would look and feel like a next gen game. They already have the assets for a next gen game in picture mode, so why not use those for in game on the PS4?

No big deal -
It’s been on swedish “Webhallen” for a few months now…
Listed for both PS3 and PS4. PS3 in 2013, PS4 in 2014.

These are just placeholder dates, and even though those dates don't show up usually until a Dec 31st type placement, for a "game" like GT6 a vendor is going to list as many potential drop dates as possible to get the most impact for pre-orders and hype in their stores. When we hear OFFICIALLY from SNE on the release of this monster, that's when I'll believe the date (projected lol) and the platform(s).

I'm thinking:

2013: GT6 on PS3 (since PD said they were working on GT6 before GT5 was even released.)

2014: GT7 Prologue on PS4
2015 - 2016: GT7 PS4

Either way and no matter what: Day 1.

GT5 came out 4 years after the PS3 and just 3 years ago. I doubt GT6 is coming anytime soon after the PS4's launch - which is why Sony gave Drive Club some spotlight when really, they KNOW people wanted to see GT6.

Retailers don't know squat. They usually just do this with a placeholder date and keep delaying the date until they have a confirmed - just to be able to take pre-orders.

In 1 way it makes sense ps3 is now at 70+ million sold and with a bundle and 50 pound/euro pricecut, it would fly off the shelves. But it could also be a dual gen release but that would hurt Driveclub which is going for the sameish demographic.

I'm thinking the PS3 should be closer to 80 mil. When does sony release the quarterly earnings?
majiebeast  +   946d ago
Ohh yeah i also think its at 80 million but i dont want to get bitched at for saying its passed the 360 by now.
MariaHelFutura  +   946d ago
GT6 will on the PS4. It's been Playstation's 'flagship' title since PS1.
Dasteru  +   946d ago
PS1: GT, GT2
PS2: GT3, GT4
PS3: GT5

There has always been 2 GT games per console generation, PD won't change that now and loose a 77m install base. They have also already invested too much in the current engine to just scrap it now.
colonel179  +   946d ago
It is very very odd that Sony would release Gran Turismo 6 for PS3 and then announce Drive Club for PS4. It would have made sense to be the other way around, although I don't even know why Drive Club exist.

If it gets announced, it will be interesting to see what Sony executives and PR guys say about that.
wishingW3L  +   946d ago
me neither. Drive Club seems like an attempt to take on Forza Horizon or Project Gotham Racing series. In fact, many of the people working on Drive Club are from the team that used to make the old PGR games.

It is a place Holder. Nothing unusual.
miDnIghtEr20C_SfF  +   946d ago
Wow, and here I thought they wanted a console selling game at launch for the PS4. Make GT6 a pack in, and also a stand alone at launch, and watch PS4's fly off the shelf.

Lol.... why are they so backwards after they dominated with the PS2?
NotSoSilentBob  +   946d ago
GT6 will not be around for the launch of PS4, if it is on that system. The racing slot went to Evolution Studios with Driver Club.
The_Troll_Whisperer  +   946d ago
*Drive Club

Sorry, just to avoid any confusion!
wishingW3L  +   946d ago
I hope all these games like: Beyond, TLOU, GT6, etc. get a cross-gen release because this way the pain of having no BC will not be as strong. Because BC is the most important at the start of a console generation because of the lack of quantity and quality of games.

jimbobwahey  +   946d ago
Yeah really, Sony is putting out their biggest exclusives on PS3 rather than PS4, which won't be able to play them due to lack of BC? They're pretty much sabotaging the launch of their new console.

If the PS4 doesn't see releases of The Last of Us, Gran Turismo 6 and Beyond: Two Souls then Sony are utter morons.

~Something tells me this is Polybably-PHONY.~

Coupled with a price cut the Ps3 would fly off the shelves.

If its true, I really hope they deliver this time and take the "king of the road" title again.

And boy,this time Polyphony has a lot of work to do, in order to step up their game enough to acomplish that.

Please P.Digital!!Don t pull a Gt5 ever again!!
Minato-Namikaze  +   946d ago
Take the title again? I'm curious as to who you think took the title?
doublebass2  +   946d ago
Are you curious or....just ignorant?Were you "really" happy with Gt5?

Let me take a wild guess... You dont own anything else but a Ps3...seriously, you should play racing games in other systems as well, Pc included.

I own a Ps3, Wii, and PC. I not a sim racer fan so i dont buy GT (GT 3 being the exception). I'm more of an arcade racer fan. I'm basically basing my opinion off of a couple close friends of mine who play GT whenever they get on, according to them GT is the best racing sim (they play ALOT of racing games).
doublebass2  +   946d ago
Great stuff...basing your opoinion on what others say...And your friends probably like you did nt play real simulators on pc, and mistake the Sim-cade nature of Gt series for a true sim..

its your choice to play whatever you want and if you like playing arcade, I wont hold a grudge. But really calling Gt series (or other wannabe sim games) Sims, you are in for a treat if you try a pc sim, like R factor, Rbr, or even the beta testing Project cars.

Gt5 Is not the best racing game by far, and certainly not the best of the series. Hell its not the best racing game on consoles. And it s not a sim..Its SIM-CADE..Learn the difference.
ToZanarkand86  +   946d ago
Would love a Gt game on Vita!
jizzyjones  +   946d ago
Hope doesn't get delayed and delayed like GT5
izumo_lee  +   946d ago
With the rumor about Final Fantasy vs.13 being on both PS3 & PS4 it wouldn't surprise me if Gran Turismo 6 will do the same thing.

Release the game on the PS3 to satisfy the 70+ million install base. Down the line port it over to the PS4 with possible new content & what not.

A few games are already doing this. Watch Dogs, Diablo 3 for example.
abzdine  +   946d ago
that's nice, Sony is planning to release a huge name around the same time as PS4 releases just like they did with God of War 2.
In the case of GOW2 the first PS3s were backward compatible but in the case of PS4 i dont really know what to think of this idea.
With Gaikai it will be possible to play it on PS4 after all. Let's wait for a confirmation

Honestly they should do a GT5 port to PS4 while we wait for GT6. A quick port with no jaggies, faster loading, maybe throw in some better lighting and raytrace some shit. It would honestly be worth buying it again. Maybe just call it GT6 prolog?
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   946d ago
But will it have interior view for all cars?
chrismichaels04  +   946d ago
Dude....you try way too hard. You troll on EVERY PS3 article. We get it, you don't like Sony. Message recieved. Move it along now. Grown folks are trying to have a conversation.

Lvl_up_gamer  +   946d ago
Then stop acting like a child defending Sony.

GT5 had many issues at launch. It was an incomplete game. Simple as that. PD HAS to get rid of the standard/premium car segmentation and all cars should be premiums.
chrismichaels04  +   946d ago
@DK286k don't you get tired of following me around? GoodGuyJamal is a big boy and can speak for himself. He doesn't need help from the 1 bubble troll patrol.

(and please don't send me a PM trying to continue your argument. It's not my fault you ran out of bubbles and can't respond to me here in the comments section)

GoodGuyJamal isn't making a perfectly legitimate observation. He's doing the same thing now that he does in every PS3 article......nitpicking and trying to find an excuse to criticise Sony. And for you to claim interior views was a "major issue" in GT5 is a ridiculous statement. GT5 wasn't perfect, but interior views was not a major make or break issue either.

GT5 is the #1 selling exclusive racing game of this entire console generation, passing over 8 million sales. That is an even more impressive accomplishment since it had to compete against four major Forza titles. If GT5 had any "major issues", it wouldn't have reached those impressive sales numbers. You and Jamal may not have liked the game and that is fine. You're both entitled to your opinions. Just stop trying to act like everyone else shares your biased opinions.
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   946d ago

Same people that will use the Justin Bieber analogy when it comes to CoD.
The game was flawed and to not have interior view in over 70% of cars in a racing sim is egregious
chrismichaels04  +   946d ago
I'm not part of "some people" that criticise COD sales so your argument is invalid. As far as your opinion that GT5 was flawed....well my friend, thats perfectly fine. You're entitled to your opinion. But your opinion is not fact and is not shared by everyone, especially since you have made it known how bitter and biased you are towards anything Sony related. That's all I have to say on the issue.

@ lvl up gamer.....I was wondering how long until the rest of the 1 bubble troll patrol was going to crawl out from under their Sony hating rock. I'm flattered that you and DK286k love following me around. I'm glad my opinion means that much to you guys. I'm going to tell you the same thing I told your 1 bubble troll buddy. Please don't send me a PM to continue your whining. it's not my fault you lost all your bubbles and can't keep this conversation going in this comment section.
