Yesterday, it was announced that Gran Turismo 6 would be launching on the PS3 .
The press release didn't mention the PlayStation 4 and that was a big question on many a gamer's lips: Is the latest entry in the award-winning racing simulator franchise going to hit Sony's new console? Pretty please?
Well, maybe. Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi told GameSpot that his team "has a PS4 version in mind for the future." However, it seems clear that if a PS4 version does arrive, it would be at a later date, as the designers are focusing on the PS3 for the time being. Said Yamauchi:
"…for this holiday season we thought that it would be best for users to release the PS3 version. I thought the best scenario would be for the game to come out, and we're planning to have new content, and DLC every few months.
Once the players have thoroughly played out the game, if the PlayStation 4 version just came out naturally in the process, we think that would be the best scenario for the game."
The Polyphony boss did say that player progress from the PS3 version would "probably" carry over into the PS4 version, which sounds like a darn good idea. Lastly, Sony revealed that GT6 would receive a demo in July, which is pretty early, considering that the launch date isn't until some time this holiday season. We just can't wait!
