Gran Turismo 6 is a PlayStation 3 game, says Sony exec

SCEE senior vice president Michael Denny mentions GT6 in a list of upcoming PlayStation 3 titles.

Gran Turismo 6 could be heading to the PlayStation 3 as one of its swan-song titles, a Sony executive has said.

Speaking to Silicon Republic about how the PlayStation 3 still has plenty to offer despite the unveiling of the PlayStation 4, SCEE senior vice president Michael Denny name-dropped some upcoming highlights for the current-gen machine. "Look at the games coming out on the PlayStation 3," said Denny, "like The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6, and then on the third-party side of things another fantastic Assassin's Creed, GTA."

Sony last week unveiled the PlayStation 4 for the first time, saying the machine would launch later in 2013. Kazunori Yamauchi, president of Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital, appeared in a video at the event to describe the PlayStation 4 as so easy to use it was like a "blank canvas" for game creators.

Motorstorm creator Evolution Studios announced Drive Club, a realistic next-gen racer, as part of its PlayStation 4 unveiling.

Development on Gran Turismo 6 was confirmed by Polyphony Digital in 2010.

I will never buy another PS3 game once the PS4 comes out.

Remember that time that GT5 was pretty much a PS2 game?

You know I got to say, I am very please with the graphics shown for ps4. however, it is clear that sony is operating as a business and not in the interest of fans. They will continue to do as they please whether or not we like it. So at a fans point of view, I would say, sony is making a bad move and should be announcing these mega games for the new console. but from a business stand point, there strategy is good. 

Not everyone is ready for ps4, and lots of people waited a very long time before the console price drops and for well develop games to be release. I think they know they messed up with ps3 launch. Ps3 lasted for way too long but if you consider how long it took for a really good game to launch, you would realize that the time span doesn't mean anything at this point. I believe games will take even longer to develop and consoles are going to last longer because of this.  

The key for PlayStation is to produce high-end games, mind blowing realistic; and it takes time and money to do so. They have truly come a long way and I finally see that graphics is not all that matters. It is a combination, that will take patients and a serious flip on the way we think of video games.

Games are not just about picking up a controller and start smashing. It is moving into the direction of story telling and bringing ultra realistic fiction to virtual reality.  And I'm loving it.

Why!? This game probably won't be ready until Playstation 6 anyway.

This is stupid! WTF is Sony thinking letting them release this on PS3?! If Sony had sense they would pay to make this a day one release for the PS4. GT5, G27 wheel, and the bluray drive is the only reason I bought the PS3. I can't believe they would do this! Sony announces the PS4, and now GT6 announced for PS3. Am I missing something??!! Its not even like they are going to have it ready anytime soon. The only thing I can think of is GT6 was built around the PS3 architecture and PD expected the PS3 to accually last 10 years.

This is assuming that they're able to release the game in the next couple years...

I'm guessing it'll be more of a GT5.5, Hopefully I'm wrong, but still very dissapointed with GT5.

Please let this be BS. With no backwards compatibility it'd be a mega dumb move for Polyphony. It'll sell... for what, a few months and then everyone moves onto the PS4?

  Take advantage of the new tech. Think of the future. Think of all the patsies buying this for their hubbies because "the controller can be used as a steering wheel", the ricers, the xcore gamers that consider this a day 1 purchase even if they don't dig racing games that much.

  Or you can be dumb and make Western consoles more appealing. Again.

This is the best racing game franchise ever, but I have to say that Burn Out Paradise was quite good also.

That would certainly explain why Drive Club is being developed on the PS4. Cause GT7 surely won't be released until about 3 or 4 years after GT6 comes out on the PS3...if it does indeed release for the PS3.

Could easily just be a mistake. It hasn't even been announced yet.

I remember one of guys from Polyphony Digital saying they couldn't make GT5 perfect due to PS3 limitations, and now they're making GT6 for PS3 again? Piss off

GT2 was my favorite GT Game, GT5 was a disappointment because of the Lack in Quality Cars (only 400 Premium) and the rest were PS2 Res Cars with no Cockpit view.

This is complete idiocy if true. As long as people are used to waiting for the GT games why not just put it off and release it on the PS4 with upgraded graphics and performance? Of course if they release it on the PS3 they can upgrade it and do a second release on the PS4 and do a double cash grab. Most likely that's what they're hoping for but after the last GT I don't think they can recapture the magic.

@GH05T-666One would think that they would not be THAT stupid but SONY continues to baffle me with all the stupid moves they make!

@GH05T-666  My only fear is how long it will take them to port it over. This is very odd timing for PD.  O.o

@Cashmoney007 I love to GT series, but I also love the Forza series. (mainly due to car damage.)

@CharlesBurns ...and by that you mean take the safe route and copy the competition's tried and true formula? (regarding the ps4's "dashboard")

@02050muh only 1000? pfft. try 10000. i hear theyre even going to start including motorcycles, boats, airplanes, and everything else with an engine and turn it into the "ultimate everything" simulator

@02050muh i find it pretty interesting how a small group of rebels pretty much kicked the brits asses when they tried to take their land away from them. then from that small country, manage to acquire half the continent all in a span of a measely 237 years. it is the land of the free with all the faults and liberties that come with it. with a bumpy history and many mistakes that are bound to happen with a government of this type, despite everything, this country managed to grow quickly in such a short time and become one of the greatest superpowers in the world. people always like to take a shot at americans, most of the time, unjustly. it just shows that americans must be doing something right if others are constantly searching for new faults to exploit. as if no other countries have had their share of shameful histories.

@ivan_osorio @CharlesBurns So would you rather they try squeeze more than the PS3 can cope with onto the PS3 so they can move on to the PS4 GT7. That's exactly what I'm saying, there were things they wanted to do with GT5 that the PS3 wouldn't let them and so now that the PS4 is available they're going to rather stick with the PS3, what sense does that make? I'll tell you, None. None Sense!

@KimCheeWarriorX @02050muh "find it pretty interesting how a small group of rebels pretty much kicked the brits asses" that has happened to america lol.... it will happen to anyone who tries to fight a convectional  ar with an unconventional enemy...

"then from that small country, manage to acquire half the continent all in a span of a measely 237 years" so your proud that genocide was committed by killing off the native american the true owners of that land of the free

bottom line is no nation is pure because humanity at whole is just plan evil
