There's no doubt about it: Gran Turismo is a racing icon in the world of gaming.
True racing fanatics understand and appreciate the sheer amount of depth and attention to detail in each new installment. The game has spawned the GT Academy, which brings virtual drivers onto the real racetrack, and the GT simulator has been used by professional drivers over the years. Franchise creator Kazunori Yamauchi is not only a renowned perfectionist, he's also a verified car freak, who also drives competitively.
The bottom line is that Polyphony Digital knows cars and they know racing. This is why it's imperative that you keep your PS3 long enough to play Gran Turismo 6 when it launches later this year. We know Beyond: Two Souls hits on October 8 and that's at least one good reason to hold onto the PS3, but the last big reason is undoubtedly GT6. Yes, we know Yamauchi says a PS4 version is possible, but we have no idea when that might arrive. Are you really going to pass up a chance to play what could be the greatest driving simulator ever…? Just so you can wait longer?
The game will look amazing on the PS3. We all know that. But more importantly, it should feature a host of upgrades and improvements that once again prove that GT is the definitive racing IP. Add it to your Christmas list. Keep an eye out for a finalized release date. Pre-order it now so you don't forget. Do whatever is necessary to get a peek at GT6 this year, 'cuz you'll regret it otherwise.
