Nice job on posting a fake announcement from an event that won't begin until two and a half hours from now just to try and get cheap and easy hits for your website.

Utterly shameful. The fact that you went so far as to even post a fake comment from Kazunori is even more embarrassing. Is your no-name site really that desperate for clicks?

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced Gran Turismo 6, the latest version of PlayStation's best-selling franchise, will be released in the holiday season, 2013. The news was revealed today by Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi at an event held to celebrate 15 years of the top-selling series.

"GT6 for PlayStation 3 will bring new levels of authenticity to 'the Real Driving Simulator' as well as introducing stunning new tracks and cars and a revised user interface," a press statement read.

"A new compact game engine will improve operation and increase the flexibility to expand it with downloadable content."

The game is also set for connectivity with devices such as smartphones and tablets for social and community functions.

All of the cars and tracks from Gran Turismo 5 will be retained in GT6. But notable additions to the line-up of historic cars, road cars and the latest race cars, brings the total car list to 1200 at launch, with new cars set to be continually added online.

Several thousand aerodynamic parts and custom wheels will be available for almost all cars, and players can personalise their own custom cars in-game as well.

The UK's Silverstone Circuit will be one of seven new locations in Gran Turismo 6, taking the total to 33, with 71 different layouts available, 19 of them being new.

New tracks are also set to be made available online, while the course maker has also seen improvements.

The press statement confirmed that the GT Academy series, which sees Nissan and Sony team up to find real racing drivers, will be returning.

Other notable partnerships in the development of GT6 have been with tyre manufacturer Yokohama Rubber and suspension company KW Automotive.

"It is amazing to think that it is 15 years since we first released Gran Turismo," explained Kazunori Yamauchi, during the announcement at Silverstone Circuit.

"Things have changed a lot since then and now Gran Turismo 6 is a further evolution of my dream. We're pleased to deliver GT6 to PlayStation 3 as we have a very loyal community on that platform.

Lets hope they also make a Ps4 version so we can play it in native 1080p and 60fps.

Why is PS4 coming out again?
I'm a huge PS fan, and with these releases I see no point in buying a PS4 at launch. I could easily wait a year.
How about you guys?
The other things is I want PS4 versions for all of these games as well too.
NateCole  +   926d ago
They are compelling reasons for current and new ps3 owerns to keeping buying ps3 games and support the PS3.

PS3 will not get the next Uncharted. That alone is a good enough reason to buy the PS4.
zoks310  +   926d ago
i agree, once i buy the ps4 this holiday i will be dectivating my ps3 and putting my ps3 in the attic. so i hope psn can stream gt6 or sony makes a ps4 version, otherwise i am skipping 6 and will wait for 7.
funny thing is my bday is 6.7.82, and just for giggles the next gt games are gt6, gt7, and gt8.

Q1 2014 for me - (if I can even find one)

- I should be caught up with all my PS3 games that I really wanted to play. - MGR R , TLoU , Beyond , GTA V , Killer is Dead , Remember Me , Puppeteer

- I'll be craving to play Killzone SF (+the multiplayer) , inFAMOUS Second Son , a better version of Watch_Dogs and other cross gen titles.

- plus a better controller and other system perks (system updating , load times , downloading/installs , UI , chat features , etc)

Assuming PS4 launches in november you would have likely already completed most of the games on the list. (GTA5, Beyond, The Last of US).

PS4 will probably have a better winter than ps3. It will have superior versions of most of the big multiplatform games, along 3 or so exclusives at launch, including Killzone.

Having said that it seems very silly for sony to make gamers choose between Drive Club or GT6.
NobodyImportant  +   926d ago
"How about you guys?"

The Last of Us - I'll buy and play though (to give me something to do until the PS4 releases.)
Beyond - Same
GTA V - I'm hoping for a PS4 version.

Gran Turismo 6 - Not going to bother. I'll be playing Drive Club. They should've brought it out on PS4. PS3 is getting too old. The day the PS4 comes out I'm leaving this old gen behind and the rickety, held together with sticky tape, half 1080p resolution racer.

Killzone SF
Drive Club
Evil Within
Battlefield 4
irepbtown  +   926d ago
I wanted PS4 to be a 2014 release last year as I felt there was still so much left in the PS3. You've named games which I'll be getting day one on PS3 however since the PS4 is coming out this year I don't want to hit the train late.

Killzone SF, Drive Club, Watchdogs, Infamous, Destiny, all games I want for the PS4.

I need to do some serious saving up this year. Damn you Sony :D
Y_5150  +   926d ago
But man, they are coming out with a new Killzone and a new inFAMOUS game. I'm sorry but I can't resist trying to buy it on launch day. I will keep my PS3 for most of those amazing games you listed above though. :)
2013 is a HUGE year for gaming!

...onto a last gen Playstation (which the PS3 will be when GT6 releases), looking old and shabby compared to the beautiful new wave of current gen racing games that will be releasing alongside it.

Long live - Drive Club

I'm kind of disappointed.

I would have waited to get it on PS4, and PS4 needs a system seller more than PS3 needs to sell games.

Yeah the game will sell more on PS3, but selling 5 million copies on PS4 and 5 million consoles to go with it would be more important right now than selling 10 million copies on PS3.
NateCole  +   926d ago
its just sony staying true to their 10 year plan.
Bathyj  +   926d ago
I guess. You've got to give them that. Not point saying you have a 10 life cycle if youre not making games for it.

I suppose alot of the assets are ready to go straight into a PS4 version so maybe it wont take 5 years.

I think maybe they should be releasing GT6 Prolouge on PS3 and then GT6 on PS4 a year and a half later.
irepbtown  +   926d ago
Polyphony Digital take their time with games. I remember Kazunori saying he wanted a small open world section for GT5 so people could cruise around however it just wasn't possible (at the time). I think PD felt they could give the PS3 one last push before starting on the PS4 (though I'm sure they have teams on the PS4 already).

I don't have a problem with GT6 on PS3 as PD rarely disappoint me.
Numphie  +   926d ago
The information and quote are all legit. Unfortunately El33tonline was not informed of the embargo until after the story was published. We've since altered the information revealed at the request of the publisher, but will have the full story at 6 when the embargo lifts.

This article is bogus. The event hasn't even started, and the 'embargo' bit about the so-called press release is el33tonline covering themselves. The fact that N4G's title and the article's title don't match proves the site is just out for hits ahead of the suspected reveal...

El33tonline was notified of an embargo on this information only after we received the official press release. We've since amended the story and are waiting to share the information this evening.

Thanks for your understanding.

Lets hope they also make a Ps4 version so we can play it in native 1080p and 60fps.
For blood's sake, some people on this site really are annoying with their ignorance: GT5 is one of the very few games of this gen that runs in native 1080p @ 60 fps, and I really don't see PD downgrade their vision for GT6, so presumably expect GT6 on the PS3 to run also in native 1080p @ 60 fps.

By "native 1080p and 60fps" on the PS4 I assume you actually meant 1920x1080p @ 60 fps. That, however, can probably not be done on the PS3. But the PS3 has been delivering native 1080p games since day one...

NOOO! WHY?! Make it a PS4 game. It's going to be better on the PS4

"1200 cars"

for some reason, i dont like that number, because that sounds like we are getting standard cars again. hopefully im wrong. aside from that, it sounds like its going to be one hell of a game.

Such a bad move, I'm a huge Playstation fan and gamer, but terrible timing. PS4 will also be out this holiday.

PS3, But not PS4? uhm..
Soldierone  +   926d ago
Not sure I agree with the move from a business perspective. PS4 won't be backwards compatible, so it's kinda like "well you can't trade in your PS3 for a PS4 now" and people will flock to the PS3 to buy this game.

Why not wait a little while, and release it on PS4 as well? Or only on PS4 first so that way it helps surge sales? Killzone and InFamous don't have the power GT has......
Orionsangel  +   926d ago
Hahaha! Expect tons of delays and an eventual release on PS4. I don't believe anything this company says anymore.

Feldman9000  +   926d ago
You know what I don't get? Is I was almost certain duplicate stories weren't allowed. Yet there's atleast 8 announcement stories for GT6.
Braid  +   926d ago
I'm sorry but this game should have been a PS4 game. If Nextbox comes out with a Forza game as a lunch title, Sony will be having a lot of trouble. Drive Club seems to be a good game but I don't think simulation gamers would choose a new game over Forza.

People have been waiting for next-gen graphics long enough already, who's going to settle for a PS3 version even though it might have superior driving physics? I'm not a racing games fan myself but I think Sony just said "Okay sim gamers, just go buy an Xbox and play Forza if you want a true next-gen racing simulation". What were they thinking, I can't tell.
noctis_lumia  +   926d ago
what trouble?
gt6 will outsold a nextgen forza lifetime sales

gt was-is and will always sale 5to1 any forza game nuff said

oups btw forza is a semi sim do your homework better

I already told that GT6 may have better driving and better physics, didn't I?

But that gets you so far, in the next 6 months all we talk about will be graphics- nothing else. It happens at the beginning of every new generation, and I'm sure that there will be plenty of people who would play Forza or an alternative, even thought it might have inferior driving or physics, only due to the fact that it looks better.

For how long will you be playing GT6 on your PS3? There will be new racing games which'll make it look terribly outdated, wouldn't that bother you just one bit? If not, you're good. But yeah, I believe there will be trouble on Sony's part if MS launches the Nextbox with a next-gen Forza game.
We care about quality but let's be honest for a second here, there's a graphics wh#re somewhere hidden in all of us.

This generation has been long enough already, I think people's tolerance for current-gen graphics are getting thinner and thinner as more next-gen games are getting revelaed.
