Gran Turismo 6 'In Mind' For PS4

PS3 may not be the only landing pad for Polyphony Digital's next game.

Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi has revealed that the upcoming sixth entry in the racing simulator series is also being considered for release on PlayStation 4.

Speaking at today’s Gran Turismo 15th Anniversary event at Silverstone racetrack in England, Yamauchi told IGN, “We actually do have a PlayStation 4 version in mind, but for this holiday season, we thought it would be best for users to release on PS3 for now.”

The story is too old to be commented.

MEGATON! Now, what's puzzling me is, do I get it for PS3 on release or wait for a possible PS4 version o_o decisions...

both it is.

@cl1983 below - Not sure what your trying to say there, can you clarify?

Well two thoughts. First wont both console be hooked up to your tv. Second theoretically wouldn't you be able to use the ps4 backward download compatibility.

KwietStorm1766d ago

I don't know what information you've gotten about "backward download compatibility," but I think it's off.

Prcko1767d ago

Megaton indeed,celebration with more good gifs

PS4 version without 1!

ape0071767d ago

man ps4 is gonna be legendary

The_KELRaTH1767d ago

Yup, no doubt in my mind!

thechosenone1766d ago

Since you'll be able to transfer progress from PS3 to PS4, I think I'll pick up the PS3 version first and then switch up when the PS4 gets theirs.

willie321767d ago

I'm hoping the game's "save" files can transfer between both versions. I think that would be Sony's best bet. You would have people buy it for PS3 and PS4, thus preventing those who would wait for the next-gen version.

cl19831767d ago

I suggesting that you may be able to buy the ps3 download and use it on the ps4. By all means I'm not 100% sure how the ps4 bc works.

GalacticEmpire1766d ago

Oh ok thanks for clearing that up. Yeah I guess maybe you could, I'm sure we'll get some answers at E3 or closer to GT6 launch.

RevXM1766d ago (Edited 1766d ago )

PS4 itself is not BC with ps3 games, it is only through the GAKAI streaming service that you will be able to enjoy ps3 games provided you have little latency and decent bandwith capacity.

Ps4 will not support Ps3 save files either for those who are going to transfer to Gakai/ Ps4 version from a ps3. It must be a game specific feature because PS4 does not support this natively.

Its a bit sad IMO that GT6 is a PS3 game, Even if they make a ps4 version it will only be just that... a port. The potential of the ps4 vs the ps3 is pretty darn big.

But it is prolly going to be awesome regardless because the screens and the trailer make GT6 look like one sexy hell of a game and the presentation promise us more customisation, better, UI, loading times, physics and graphics.
GT6 = day 1 purchase.

Now I pretty much just hope they dont have "standard" cars anymore and up their classic tracks because some of them looked pretty much just like they did on the ps2 with lower polycounts and sprite trees and low res environments and bad ugly baked lighting that is out of place with the rest of the game.

Lior1767d ago

PC please, if not we are getting project cars which looks epic so.....

nthstew1766d ago

You WILL be getting project cars but...unfortunately not GT6 as its an exclusive

thebigman1766d ago

Gran Turismo will never be on PC while Project CARS will most likely make its way to Sony's platform

FlyingFoxy1766d ago

PC already has tons of great games, for a game like this i don't really care as i find realistic racing games to be boring.

But, plenty of good games coming on PS4 so why not own both?

Khronikos1766d ago

LOL at mister bitter. Hey, dude, I been playing games in 1080p WITH my PS3 pad for 5 years now. How do you feel about that dumb dumb. Get a job and a brain and you can have both.

princejb1341766d ago

aaron58291766d ago

OMGOMG OMG AHHHHH... *screaming like a girl at a Bieber concert* PS4 VERSION! AHHH...

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1766d ago

If at launch game over!! MS better have halo & COD ready!!

DOMination-1766d ago

A Gran Turismo game coming out at some point on a Playstation device.. is hardly a megaton announcement.

Makes a lot of sense. GT is a system seller.

HmongAmerican1766d ago

That probally in the back of their mind. No doubt about it. It might not be at the PS4 launch but maybe early or late 2014 release.

I_am_Batman1766d ago

Will it be a system seller despite coming for PS3 though? I think GT7 will be more of a system seller when it comes exclusively for the PS4.

ltachiUchiha1767d ago

I told u, sony aint going to let their highest selling exclusive just release for the ps3. I bet there will also be a vita & a ps4 version aswell. Only thing that is most certain is there wont be a gt6 for the ps4 launch.

Prcko1767d ago

i still think gt6 gonna come just few months after ps4 launch

GiantFriendlyCrab1767d ago

PD wants to cash in with ps3 first. They did not make a new engine for nothing. I think they have future proofed the GT series for ps4

MysticStrummer1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

I doubt it would be just a few months. A year, maybe.

I'd rather they wait a little longer, two years or so, and just put GT7 on PS4. The comparative ease of programming for PS4 vs PS3 should mean less time to make the next version.

SymphonicRain1766d ago

It's Cool because that's Kakashis Sharingan and your name is Itachi. Nice prediction.

ltachiUchiha1766d ago

Lol the sharingan can see through all. =]

TheFallenAngel1766d ago

They should do a PS4 version of The Last of US too.

fantasygamer1767d ago

I think they might wait and release a GT6 XL for PS4 next year.

Reborn1767d ago

Exactly my thoughts.

Didn't they do a prologue thing with PS3? I can see that happening with PS4.

Root1767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

Yeah think I'll wait for the PS4 versions....any bugs or problems that come with the PS3 version they'll fix for the PS4 version which should come out a few months later and any patches they'll do after will be included aswell

DriveClub will give me my driving game fix till then
