Sony: Gran Turismo 6 on smartphones would be "lousy"

SCEA CEO Jack Tretton says Sony wants to bring its games to smartphones and tablets, but only where it makes sense. (Gran Turismo 6, PS3)

Anything other than fruit ninja on a phone is lousy.

Any where I don't have to swipe my finger or tap something?

Phone games rely too much on these two things, since it's their only 2 real "buttons"..

dedicated gaming devices will always be better than ios garbage just li9ke PC graphics will always be ahead of Consoles.

Just the way it is.

These ios games would be good on a Vita or 3DS

What about Baldur's Gate and Baldur's Gate II ?


There's no better RPGs for PS3 or Xbox 360 - The Witcher 2 is great, tho.

Mobile devices are perfectly fine to run great games even today and in couple of years they are going to be amazing. It's possible to attach mobile device to TV / dock and play games with a game controller - even with keyboard and mouse if needed.

Do they not realize that the Nexus 5 that was released last week has a 2.26GHz CPU and 1080P display?

Good luck with dat battery. And some other things.

The LG G2 has nearly 7 hours of continuous game usage on those same specs.

They realize it, its just they don't care. Mobile gaming is playground where casual games like Candy Crush, Angry Birds , Subway Surfer and etc rules. It would be a waste of money putting GT6 on a smartphone or tablet.

That is unless of course it's a PS-Tab

Graphics is one thing controlls and physics is a different story for smartphones.

I think what they realise is that most people won't hook up a controller or steering wheel to their smartphone. This is a driving simulator, not and endless runner where it makes sense flicking your car side to side or tilting the phone.

GT was on PS1 and PSP, so I don't see power having too much to do with it.

Samsung Galaxy S4 has a 4 core CPU and a 1080p Display plus a 3 core GPU!

Would i want to play Gran Turismo 6 on it, NO

But it sure as hell can run many a pretty game that are designed for mobile phones.

Plus you can always connect it to your TV and plug in a CONTROLLER!

Sony PLEASE keep attacking tablets and smart phones, its so awesome to see them (tablet lovers) struggle to come up with excuses to defend it lol

I dont actually play games on my tablet. I mainly use it for youtube , facebook and watching movies when I am in my kitchen or bedroom.

They did release PlayStation All-Stars Island.

Tablets and cellphones will always offer subpar games and gameplay compared to dedicated gaming devices, period.
ginsunuva  +   349d ago
Only because there aren't many publishers or good devs on mobile right now.

They're usually a couple of dudes who can't afford fancy game engines and libraries. Nor have companies made fancy mobile game engines and libraries yet.

But once they start getting funding, things might change.

Why would you want to play gt6 on a smart phone? You dont even have to tell me that it will be lousy, I know it would be..

Now if they did something like gta did with ifruit but a little deeper with customisation to cars that would be awesome..
RPG_Lover  +   349d ago
any phone game is lousy
edqe  +   349d ago
I don't see a problem. Just attach phone for example to dock, grab a controller and start play games. Performance will not be a problem since phones will perform better than PS3 and Xbox 360 soon, no doubt about that.

My 10.1" tablet has HDMI output ani I have a good stand for it so I dont ned a dock for it
edqe  +   348d ago
Sure, but a dock could be to give power and provide more connectors. Anyway the point is that a mobile device in the future could replace a current form of console device. Easily.

But Gran turismo 2 still plays fantastic on the galaxy note 3! Best GT game of all time!
