Gran Turismo documentary revealed

"KAZ: Pushing the Virtual Divide" will trace Kazunori Yamauchi's career from racer to game developer.

To mark the 15th anniversary of the Gran Turismo series, Sony will release KAZ: Pushing the Virtual Divide, an all-new documentary chronicling the life of series creator Kazunori Yamauchi.

The film will trace Yamauchi's career from his run as a professional racer to his founding of Gran Turismo series developer Polyphony Digital.

"Through the support of PlayStation, Kaz's journey has forever changed the gaming and automotive landscape and in doing so, has redefined how we perceive the relationship between art, entertainment, and culture," reads a line from the film's description.

Directing KAZ: Pushing the Virtual Divide is Tamir Moscovici, who has helmed various commercials, music videos, and short films.

No release date other than "soon" has been announced for KAZ: Pushing the Virtual Divide. Check out the film's trailer below.

Gran Turismo 6 launches on December 6 for the PlayStation 3, while Gran Turismo 7 for the PlayStation 4 will be out in "a year or two," according to Yamauchi.

They should just say that after GT3 they gave up on caring and just rehashed the same game since then.

Kaz, you should start to listen to the fans, instead of that dumb celebrity thing.

You are not Brad Pitt, but a game designer.

Stick to games.

Seriously? This is GT5.5 on PS3, when it should be GT6 on PS4. Wake me up when these guys get a clue, unbelievable, the arrogance is just nauseating.

Is this the Gran Turismo movie that was announced a while ago?

This explains why his games are never finished on time, he's too busy making movies about himself.

@gunner967 No, this is only a documentary on GTs creator Kaz. The movie is about some made up storyline of a GT gamer going for his dream to become a real racer.
